WORLD ORDER (Genki Sudo)

“Tokyo is cold today, but when I think about the disaster, I don’t feel it. These are the lyrics to ‘MACHINE CIVILIZATION’ that I wrote the other day. Our civilization is changing. The ones who change it are each and every one of us.”

-Genki Sudo, 3/23/2011

MACHINE CIVILIZATION
Words by Genki Sudo
Music by Genki Sudo / Takashi Watanabe

The morning of machine civilization
Red shields, lost in the shadow,
Wearing grey clothes –
The morning is captured in the rhythm.
A moment just like always,
An unstopping production line –
Something is missing
In the twilight of machinery

Where’s the world going?
Won’t somebody tell me?
Are these thoughts illusions?
Are we all one?
Can this world change?
Are these thoughts illusions?

People find work to be done.
The people work, and the birds sing out.
The dream has fallen asleep.
“Wake up,” he shouts.
A moment just like always –
We live in this instant,
Wishing for a revolution to come someday
In the twilight of machinery

Where’s the world going?
Won’t somebody tell me?
Are these thoughts illusions?
Are we all one?
Can we change these feelings?
We always smile in the dream.

(Are these thoughts illusions?)

MACHINE CIVILIZATION
Lyrics: Sudou Genki
Music: Sudou Genki / Watanabe Takashi

The morning of machine civilization
Akai tate  kage mayoi
Haiiro no fuku madoi
Rizumu ni torawareta asa
Itsumo to onaji shunkan
Tomenai seisan rain
Nanika ga kaketeru
In the twilight of machinery

Where’s the world going
Won’t somebody tell me
Are these thoughts illusion
Are we all one
Kono sekai wa kawareru no ka
Kono omoi wa maboroshi ka

People find work to be done
Hito wa hataraki  tori utau
Nemuri ni ochita yume
Me wo samase  kare sakebu
Itsumo to onaji shunkan
Kono setsuna ni ikiru
Itsuka kakumei motome
In the twilight of machinery

Where’s the world going
Won’t somebody tell me
Are these thoughts illusion
Are we all one
Kono omoi wo kaerareru no ka
Itsumo yume ni waraikakeru

MACHINE CIVILIAZTION
作詞:須藤元気
作曲:須藤元気/ Takashi Watanabe

The morning of machine civilization
赤い楯 影迷い
灰色の服纏い
リズムに囚われた朝
いつもと同じ瞬間
止めない生産ライン
何かが欠けてる
In the twilight of machinery

※ Where’s the world going
Won’t somebody tell me
Are these thoughts illusion
Are we all one
この世界は変われるのか
この想いは幻か

People find work to be done
人は働き 鳥歌う
眠りに落ちた夢
目を覚ませ 彼叫ぶ
いつもと同じ瞬間
この刹那に生きる
いつか革命求め
In the twilight of machinery


この想いを変えれるのか
いつも夢に笑いかける

One thought on “WORLD ORDER – MACHINE CIVILIZATION

  1. I´m fascinated over the video and the lyrics .. and its true. We are like robots doing something but without deeper meaning.

    Thou, itś nice that some people do care more than average. Even if they are actually the average, but they try to see and be more.

    Sad that disasters happen, but i quess those are needed to make people think, think more that they normally do.
