Shiina Ringo - Mayonaka wa Junketsu Lyrics

Artist: Shiina Ringo [椎名林檎]
Single: Mayonaka wa Junketsu [真夜中は純潔]

01. Mayonaka wa Junketsu

Araitate no kuroi kami ga KAOTTE
Ima ni mo tonde yukisou

KASHISU iro ni somatta tsume
Urunda futari no nenmaku mitai

Warui keredo WAIN naraba
Jibun no kuchibiru DAIREKUTO de

GURASU yori mo sono okuchi ni
Sosoide itadakitai no da mono

"Hajimemashou an'i na ichidzuke
ZOKUREI no SHOU
Kantan na SEREKUSHON
Watashi wa kon'ya tada semeraretai"

TAGUIMARE ni riyuu mo naku
HIREFUSU dake no baai ga aru no

Chikai you demo tanin de aru
Sore igai nanimo nai sabishisa

* "HAZUKASHIMETE koiki na kotoba de niowasu kubi
Gouin na shigusa de nejifusete
DISUTOOSHON kaketara
TAYUTAU nuno
Kantan na SEREKUSHON
Watashi wa tada ima anata ga ii" *

NINAIRO ni umaredo mo
MAJIRI ke naki mi

(*Kurikaeshi)

Anata ga ii
Anata ga ii


真夜中は純潔

洗い立ての黒い髪が馨(カヲ)って
今にも飛んで行きそう

カシス色に染まった爪
潤んだ二人の粘膜みたい

悪いけれど葡萄酒(ワイン)ならば
自分の口唇ダイレクトで

グラスよりも其の御口に
注いで載きたいのだもの

「始めませふ安易な位置づけ
属隷(ゾクレイ)の興行(ショウ)
簡単な選択(セレクション)
わたしは今夜 唯 攻められたひ」

類稀(タグイマレ)に理由もなく
平伏(ヒレフ)すだけの場合が有るの

近い様でも他人で在る
それ以外何も無い寂しさ

※「辱(ハズカシ)めて小粋な言葉で匂はす首
強引な仕草で捩ぢ伏せて
増歪(ディストーション)懸けたら
揺蕩(タユタ)ふ布
簡単な選択(セレクション)
わたしは只現在あなたが依々」※

蜷色(ニナイロ)に埋もれども
雑(マ)じり気なき身

(※くり返し)

あなたが依々
あなたが依々

[Kanji version from goo Ongaku .]

--------------------------------------

"Kurikaeshi" stands for "Repeat".

The most curious thing in this song is the 始めませふ [HAJIMEMASEFU] when she actually sings [HAJIMEMASHOU]. Anyone could explain this to me?:D
I'm confused!
Other than that, there're just some regular stuff on Shiina's songs: ひ [HI] instead of い [I] in some cases, は [HA] instead of わ [WA] (not the particle case), ふ [FU] instead of う [U], lots of obsolet kanji or extraordinary readings (the words in caps are usually representing this).

Japanese language is beautiful!(*_*)
or
日本語素敵!(*_*)

Jaa!o/

Hi there,
I know you've published it a long time ago, but I just wanted to tell you why she wrote 初めませふ instead of 始めましょう - this is old kana usage, the words are written like they were before... WWII I think.
In her Album "Karuki Zamen Kuri no Hana" where "Ishiki" is from, which you also translated and posted here, she uses old Kana throughout the album - whole booklet's full of them ;)
(I think this is to make the album seem somehow noble, old and somewhat "official", because she also uses documental kanji for numbering the songs like 壱 instead of 一 and so on)

She also often uses Kanji that are not on the Jouyou-Kanji list or with different readings - it's a sort of wordplay, I guess but you found that out too, didn't you? ;)

Kasu,
Thanks a lot for kindly posting a response to my question!:)
Shiina's intention with all these unusual uses of kanji has become clearer to me now. And even though I didn't mention, I do remember seing this strange ichi (壱) somewhere in her lyrics...:D
Thank you very much!
