You Can Now See Translated and Romaji-fied Necronomidol Lyrics

Don’t start posting lyrics. You’ll start to succumb to the pressure to keep posting lyrics and then you’ll just be a weird lyrics site and not everybody has translated lyrics and you’ll look like a doofus and don’t post lyrics you’re j

Do you ever sit around, listening to idols sing, and wonder what they’re actually singing about? Of course you do. It’s very unlikely that you’d be looking at this site if you didn’t. Well, add TWO more resources to your list (or three, I guess?), as Necronomidol‘s lyrics are beginning to make their way online in a way that people who can’t read Japanese scripts will find accessible, even literate!

Via the official Facebook page, “Vulture”:

A blizzard of cremains
The dead are blind

Crimson sky at night
Sinking into blood

Upon a steel earth
Mountains of bleached bones

Caged in by tombstones
Brutality endures

A black wind blows (Take flight)
Harbinger of doom (Ascend)
One after another (Take flight)
The curtain falls (Ascend)

Cold fingers entwine (Take flight)
Around your neck (Ascend)
Everything slowly fades (Take flight)
To pitch blackness (Ascend)

The red, red, red light (Vulture)
Shines, shines, shines upon me (Soaring overhead)
My soul, soul, soul sinking down (Vulture)
Into the, into the, into the ultimate void (Soaring overhead)

A blizzard of cremains
The dead are blind

Crimson sky at night
Sinking into blood

A black wind blows (Take flight)
Harbinger of doom (Ascend)
One after another (Take flight)
The curtain falls (Ascend)

Cold fingers entwine (Take flight)
Around your neck (Ascend)
Everything slowly fades (Take flight)
To pitch blackness (Ascend)

The red, red, red light (Vulture)
Shines, shines, shines upon me (Soaring overhead)
My soul, soul, soul sinking down (Vulture)
Into the, into the, into the ultimate void (Soaring overhead)

A cracked skull
The scent of corpses

The shadow on the battlefield
The sweet taste of rot

Into the darkness
The light of the Other Side

The red, red, red light (Your doom, Your despair)
Shines, shines, shines upon me (Our destiny, Our nourishment)
My soul, soul, soul sinking down (Your doom, Your despair)
Into the, into the, into the ultimate void (Our destiny, Our nourishment)

A blizzard of cremains
The dead are blind

And via the fan subreddit, here’s a thread dedicated to collecting Romaji renderings of the Japanese lyrics. For instance, “Ankoku Shoujo Sentai”:

Mitame ha massao sekigan
Shinya ni meguru Eien ni meguru
Naka ni ha makkuro ketsueki
Shinya ni meguru Eien ni meguru

Yosyuu no himitsu wo tadotte
Kao no nai kami no satori ga
Tokoyo no kaze ga fuite
‘Umr at-tawil no megmi wo
Motomete hirefusite Agame

Shinigami no awaremi
Sayonara tsuku itomamo nai

Haka no hoyou ni hikarete
Shumatsu kara no hajimari

Kyomu no shamen ureshii
Nani mo umareshi mono ha nai

Moumoku roua muchi hakuchi
Ryouchi senu koto ga shikou

Warera no uketometeiru
Kimerareshi kanashiki sadame
Hakuchi zennou maou ni ha

Ikinone tomete agemasyou
Ikinone tomete agemasyou
Choukudou no shouchoku
Meihaku naru warera no shimei

Mitame ha massao sekigan
Shinya ni meguru Eien ni meguru
Naka ni ha makkuro ketsueki
Shinya ni meguru Eien ni meguru

Yosyuu no himitsu wo sagutte
Ishiki no shikkoku no umi ni tobikomu
Naraku no usuppera no uso
Shitou no chie de yaburisute
Ooinaru kuraki mono to tomoni

Shinigami no awaremi
Sayonara tsuku itomamo nai

Haka no hoyou ni hikarete
Shumatsu kara no hajimari

Kyomu no shamen ureshii
Nani mo umareshi mono ha nai

Moumoku roua muchi hakuchi
Ryouchi senu koto ga shikou

Ankoku shoujo sentai
Ikari to kurushimi nigirishime
Tokoyo kara choukudou he
Shinryaku se

Ikinone tomete agemasyou
Ikinone tomete agemasyou
Choukudou no shouchoku
Meihaku naru warera no shimei

I’ll try to keep up with this and make this a master post or something. If you happen to be a speaker of or learning Japanese and you’d like to contribute lyrics work, you can submit to the sub or email the boss. We’ll make sure that everything winds up in the right place.
