Drain

Performed by: X-Japan

Lyrics by: Hide & Toshi

Composed & Arranged by: Hide

Translated by: Mina-P (Email: Minako@senshigakuen.com)

Version 2.00


Note: AH-HA okay, this is really kinda cheating, but it's not MY fault that Hide-san and Toshi-san know their English!! I love X-Japan and their Dahlia album is especially good, but even then, Drain is top of the tops. Simply an amazing song, and great lyrics, especially when written by two Japanese men.


Talk to my troubled brain

If you can feel my pain

So much hurting that's living in my head

Now I can barely breathe

And now my heart's disease

And my name and my life has been stepped

on and on No no!


You made fool out of me

There is no way out

I'm going down the drain


The name of God in vain

You pushed me I'm insane

Dissolution is knocking on my door

Can't stop my bitter tears

Oh take away my fears

Body and soul is blown up into pieces


Oh       Cry out I want to be free

            Dry out I want to know truth


Let me drain my feelings out

Lough like a drain My emotions scream

Let me drain!


So I can't speak my mind

anata sae mo blind

And even you are blind

I am left in a land with just solitude

Has this become my fate

Who's next to be your bate

Vicious cycle repeating on and on


            Cry out I want be loved

            Dry out I want see dreams

Oh       Cry out I want to be free

            Dry out I want to know truth


Let me drain my feelings out

Lough like a drain My emotions scream

Let me drain my feelings out

Lough like a drain My emotions scream

Let me drain!


Lyrics belong to Hide and Toshi and East West Music Japan, taken from the Dahlia album, AMCM-4271 (track 9). Not like the words make any sense if you haven't heard the song, anyway. Romanized and translated into English very badly by Mina-P, with desperately needed help, as always, by Mako-chan. Any comments or corrections can be mailed to Mina-P at Minako@senshigakuen.com.
