NINGEN ISU/Life for Sale (人間椅子/命売ります)


I want to hear a song of life A requiem for a poor man like me Playing a farce behind the mask I’m a hermit who never knows tomorrow If the world is filled with love Save me, please What are we born for, what do we die for? What do we love for, what do we fight for? “Life for Sale” Barababamba Barababamba Barababamba Barababamba I want to learn the meaning of life At the funeral for a miserable man like me Living on air, embracing the dead I’m a stranger with the apathetic face If the world still has any room for dreams Save me, please What are we born for, what do we die for? What do we love for, what do we fight for? “Life for Sale” Barababamba Barababamba Barababamba Barababamba Does our life weigh Less than a feather? Or more than a mountain? Is the light of life Darker than night? Or brighter than fire? I want to hear you sing in the angelic voice As a parting gift for a fool like me Pretending to be a hero by telling tall tales Formerly a lawless rogue, now I am a vagabond If you, God, created our land Give me some advice, please What are we born for, what do we die for? What do we love for, what do we fight for? “Life for Sale”

    I want to hear a song of life

    Save me, please

    I want to learn the meaning of life
    At the funeral for a miserable man like me
    Living on air, embracing the dead
    I'm a stranger with the apathetic face
    If the world still has any room for dreams
    Save me, please

    Does our life weigh
    Less than a feather?
    Or more than a mountain?
    Is the light of life
    Darker than night?
    Or brighter than fire?

    I want to hear you sing in the angelic voice
    As a parting gift for a fool like me
    Pretending to be a hero by telling tall tales
    Formerly a lawless rogue, now I am a vagabond
    If you, God, created our land
    Give me some advice, please

  2. 田中泯さんに助けられてはいるが、「無情のスキャット」のあやかり商法。

  3. Иноч уримас! Потрясающе, потрясающе)) Как я рад, что познакомился с творчеством этой группы! Обожаю вас!

  4. I gotta say, I never thought I'd be getting legit headbanging metal from a Japanese band with a gray-haired singer riffing like a madman. It's not that I don't believe it, I just can't pretend I would have predicted this day…

  5. Who are these guys and where the hell did they come from? Another great solo that fit perfectly in with the song.

  6. I absolutely love this band. And I'm really glad they included the subtitles so we can all understand what they are saying.

  7. You guys will have the attention you deserve. Thanks for your awesome music.

  8. 古書店のオヤジ
    ビーバップ世代のヤンキー
    山海塾の舞踏家
    の三人が奏でる音楽。

  9. この曲は凄く癖になります。
    歌詞は和島氏の執筆なのかな?
    文学的な歌詞とソリッドかつ重くスピーディな音のリフで全体的には激しく重い世界観なのに、「バラババンバ」のスキャットの部分では思わず踊り出したくなるキャッチーさがある。
    凄くバランスが良く本当に良い意味でノリが良い。
    田中泯さんの舞踏も最高ですね。この系の暗黒舞踏や前衛舞踏好きなんですが、田中泯さんは改めて見た、動きのキレと曲で表現している感情を舞踏で表現しきっているのが素晴らしいし美しい。
    三島由紀夫の小説が元ネタとの事で、三島由紀夫好きなので元ネタの小説も読んでみたくなりました。
    だが「(歌詞は)読書感想文の様にはならない様にした」と言う和島氏の感性のインテリジェンスさに脱帽。
    読解して内容を噛み砕いて消化して新しい作品をクリエイトして昇華すると言う事が出来るのは本当のアーティストでありプロフェッショナルだと思います。
    椅子さんはデビュー当時からそうだった(元ネタの文学を自分達の世界観に消化する)ので、そう言うクリエイトの仕方は本当に頭の良い人にしか出来ないので凄いと思います。
    スズケンさんの歌詞も和島さんの歌詞もどちらも凄いと思います。
    天才過ぎて聞いていると椅子さんワールドに酔いしれます。

  10. Increíble que el grupo no lo conociera teniendo tantos años activo!!! Son demasiado, no se como logran ese sonido solo 3 personas!!! Saludos desde Costa Rica!!!!

  11. 元々人間椅子が大好きな中、まーさんガレージからやってきました!相変わらずカッコいいです!

  12. Theyve been playing for 30+ years…America?…PLEASE WELCOME!!!… THE JAPANESE "SLAYER"!!!!

  13. So many people surprised about how old these men are.
    Seriously, they're just old, it happens to all of us. They deserve some respect with the amount of life experience they have.

  14. забавно звучит , особенно практически полностью англоязычного металл рока, такие интонации слушать интересно, привет с россии, лови лайк

  15. This is criminal! How can a band this damn good only have 74.5K subscriptions? I don't feel so bad being a 55 year old metalhead guitarist now.

  16. Just when I have about given up on all the crap, misinformation, and just plain junk on the interwebs, I somehow stumble on to these guys after watching some Russian folk music (dont ask, rabbithole) and HOLY F*CK! Blown away!
