[UPDATE: I found the full version of the song along with the music video for it! I switched out the old video at the bottom for the NEW MUSIC VIDEO for “Let Me Hear” as well as the LYRICS! Enjoy!]
SO…I’ve been hooked on this anime called “kiseijuu” aka Parasyte and to tell you the truth, it’s pretty damn good. As of right now, they’re 10 episodes in, so be on the lookout for the review in the upcoming days! Not only am I addicted to the anime, the OP theme is pretty bad ass, if you ask me. It’s called “LET ME HEAR” by the band Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas (named after that one Johnny Depp movie).
The band has discovered a new genre of music called “DigiCore”, mixing two genres of music. And yep, you guessed it…digital and hardcore. And to be honest, it’s quite catchy. The vocals are auto-tuned ALL OVER and it’s hard to decipher what the hell he’s singing sometimes due to the lack of clarity in the way he pronounces his words. Oh, did I forget to mention that 80% of their lyrics is in English? Pretty dope, huh? Not only can I not clearly understand the clean vocals, but the screams are even harder to decrypt. Seriously, it’s harder than listening to a padlock and figuring out its combination.
All that aside, I wanted to see if anyone on the “internetz” had figured out the lyrics since the single is out in January 7 of 2015. Turns out, the lyrics I found are even worse than I thought. Some of it doesn’t even make sense, let alone, incomplete sentences. And yes, I know you’re thinking to yourself that it’s a Japanese band and that their English isn’t that good. Well, I did some research and listened to their older songs and it turns out…THE BAND CAN WRITE ENGLISH LYRICS THAT MAKE SENSE! So, I took it upon myself to listen to the song for 2.5 hours at variable speeds, such as slowing it down and at regular tempo, to see if the lyrics make sense. I’m not saying that the lyrics I deciphered myself to be the “end all, be all” lyrics, but for now…they will have to do as they make more sense than most of the lyrics out there for the song. Check out the video/song after the jump along with the lyrics posted below that I came up with myself. Enjoy!
PS: If you guys have any input or what you think the lyrics sound like to you, feel free to leave them in the comment section! Thanks! I want to see what lyrics you guys came up with, too!
You guys do not notice that we are gifted just by being humans
We are absolute predators we do not even have any enemies
Maybe there are other animals watching us and thinking that someday “we will beat them down”
Oh, we have the brains to think hard wear our favorite clothes
We are at no doubt human beings many small lives
(There were born) with the fate (with the fate) of dying for someone (for someone a human baby)
A human baby when will they find out (when will they find out the true fact yeah)
That at the point they were born, we are (we are winners) (the) winners of Earth
Aa hitori naiteita Tonari no kimi ga toikakeru Dakara bokura yorisoi ikiru Kirameku made
For what have i been living for? When will i find out the answer? An answer that is only for you what will myself and (the) first scenery i saw It’s my face, my face
Shut up! I read this inside the book i read before (the book i read before)
According (to) maslow (According (to) maslow) there are five steps (in a) human’s desire
To live in long long life to stay safe and to receive (baby) love from others
To get respect from (baby) others, to get closer (yeah) to your ideal (yeah)
That’s what it said (yeah) No matter how hard other animals try, they probably can’t go over the first step
That is how intelligent we are and, (an animal) filled with greed
But that is probably why we can still alive on the top of food chain in this blue planet
Although, we have weak bodies
Aa mata kimi no mehi Itsumo no asa ga utsuri komu Nagareru namida ga kiete yuku
For what to live for Think deeply as you live, yeah Cuz you humans are (the) only ones that can do this on Earth
Atarashi kotae o what is it that you want to get in your right hands? Let me hear Tell me your new answer Prove that you are different from monkies if that is nothing to crave for, Humans will die in a way Don’t you think so too? Let Me Hear, Let Me Hear,Let Me Hear
