It was brought to my attention by a friend that the official stream of Megalobox (GO WATCH THIS SHOW) does not have subtitles for
the insert rap song “great track, #01” in episode 2. I whipped this translation up real quick. Feel free to “WELL ACTUALLY” me in the comments. Update (06/10/2019): Surprisingly this article still consistently gets views. In light of this unexpected phenomenon, I cleaned up the lyrics a little bit. I still feel like it could be better, but that would require a better writer than myself.
We got nothing.
No ID, no name.
No past, no future.
All we have is the present.
Nothing will change in these meaningless slums.
What proof do we have of our own existence here?
We clash with each other.
These are completely different worlds, over those walls and over here.
These boundaries are huge. God is unfair.
Powerless and envious, we’re always at the bottom.
Disposable and without security, we’re worthless slaves.
Surely only death will bring us at ease.
Our sole pleasure is MEGALOBOX.
One clobbers another.
Those pained expressions soothe the heart,
and again the good-for-nothings gather around.
作ってるThese wallsあっちとこっち まるで別世界
