Kamikazekata Kuchikukan ・ Yamikaze

Lyrics: Jojo Music: Andy
From INCUBUS (available at CDJapan)


Transcription: Chiva
神風型駆逐艦・闇風

少女を切り裂いて皮を引き剥がす 少女を切り裂いて肉を喰らい尽くす
帛琉の海に映る満月が亡者の血を啜り笑い転げる
帛琉の海に踊る満月が亡者を海底に引き摺り込む
暗黒に澱む霧を纏う幽霊船が血に餓えた日章旗を髑髏旗の代わりに靡かせた
飛び散る鮮血を浴びて面影を重ねた
御食事の時間です
少女を切り裂いて皮を引き剥がす 少女を切り裂いて肉を喰らい尽くす
食事の為に女を攫う幽霊船が血に餓えた日章旗を髑髏旗の代わりに靡かせた
飛び散る鮮血を浴びて面影を重ねた 噴き出す経血を浴びて面影を重ねた
御食事の時間です

Kamikazekata Kuchikukan ・ Yamikaze

Shoujo wo kirisaite kawa wo hikihagasu shoujo wo kirisaite niku wo kuraitsukusu

Kamikaze-Class Destroyer1 ・ Yamikaze2

They tear up young girls and peel off their skin They tear up young girls and devour their meat
The full moon reflecting on the sea of Palau3 rolls about crying with laughter for the blood of the dead
The full moon dancing on the sea of Palau drags the dead down to the seabed
A ghost ship clad in stagnant fog in the darkness flew the bloodthirsty rising sun flag in place of the Jolly Roger4
Bathing in splattering, fresh blood, the remnants piled up
It's mealtime
They tear up young girls and peel off their skin They tear up young girls and devour their meat
A ghost ship abducting girls for meals flew the bloodthirsty rising sun flag in place of the Jolly Roger
Bathing in splattering, fresh blood, the remnants piled up Bathing in explosive blood loss, the remnants piled up
It's mealtime



1 This is a type of warship, of which 9 existed. They were in commission from 1921-1947.

2 "Yamikaze" is the name of the ship this song is about -- the Kamikaze-Class destroyers were all given names ending in "-kaze". However, "Yamikaze" was neither one of the 9 completed ships, nor one of the ships that was planned. In other words, "Yamikaze" is Jojo's own creation.

3 Palau is a Pacific island which hosted a Japanese settlement during WWII.

4 The Jolly Roger is the traditional skull and crossbones pirate flag, which is flown on a ship after it's been taken over by pirates. This song tells the opposite story: the Japanese navy in WWII have taken over a Palau pirate ship and are flying the rising sun flag -- the flag of imperial Japan -- to carry out nefarious deeds. Jojo has also confirmed this premise in an interview.

5 "Ahoy" can be heard frequently as backing vocals, but this isn't written in the booklet.
