Rise- Origa

April 27, 2007

Rise
Stand Alone Complex
2nd Opening Song
Music: Yoko Kanno
Sung by: Origa

Original.

I’m a soldier, znachit ya
I otvyetchik i sud’ya
Ya stoyu na dvukh kontsakh ognya
Ogibaya virazhi, obgonyaya smyert’ i zhizn’
Ya byegu srazit’sya s tyen’yu lzhi
I’m a soldier, meaning that I’m
Both the defendent and the judge
I’m standing on both sides of the fire
Going around turns, overtaking death and life
I’m running to fight with the shadow of a lie

skol’ko b nityey nye plyol obman
pokazhyet lik svyeta istina
No matter how many threads deception would weave
Truth will show its face of light

*Save your tears
for the day
when our pain is far behind
on your feet
come with me
we are soldiers stand or die
*Save your tears
for the day
when our pain is far behind
on your feet
come with me
we are soldiers stand or die

Save your fears
take your place
save them for the judgement day
fast and free
follow me
time to make the sacrifice
we rise or fall
Save your fears
take your place
save them for the judgement day
fast and free
follow me
time to make the sacrifice
we rise or fall

I’m a soldier, born to stand
in this waking hell I am
witnessing more than I can compute
I’m a soldier, born to stand
in this waking hell I am
witnessing more than I can compute

pray myself we don’t forget
lies, betrayed and the oppressed
please give me the strength to be the truth
pray myself we don’t forget
lies, betrayed and the oppressed
please give me the strength to be the truth

people facing the fire together
if we don’t, we’ll lose all we have found
people facing the fire together
if we don’t, we’ll lose all we have found

*repeat
*repeat

Za myechtoyu nakray propasti
Lish’ tol’ko tak mozhno mir spasti
After a dream to the edge of a chasm
Only that way can the world be saved

Ty nye plach’,
Slyozy spryach’,
Ved’ nastanyet novyy den’
Tvoy ogon’
Sogryevat’
Budyet tysyachi syerdets
A syeychas podnimis’
Spryach’ podal’shye bol’ i strakh
Pobyedit tot, kto prav
Znay, chto vsyo v tvoikh rukakh
Don’t you cry,
Hide the tears,
Because a new day will start
Your fire
Will be heated
By thousands of hearts
But now get up
Hide the pain and fear far
The one who’s right will win
Know that everything is in your hands

*repeat
*repeat

English from here:

I’m a soldier, and that means
I’m both defendant and judge
I am standing on the two ends of fire
Bending over the steep turns, overtaking death and life
I’m running to fight the shadow of the lies

No matter how much threads deceit weaves
The truth will show the face of light

*Save your tears
for the day
when our pain is far behind
on your feet
come with me
we are soldiers stand or die

Save your fears
take your place
save them for the judgement day
fast and free
follow me
time to make the sacrifice
we rise or fall

I’m a soldier, born to stand
in this waking hell I am
witnessing more than I can compute

pray myself we don’t forget
lies, betrayed and the oppressed
please give me the strength to be the truth

people facing the fire together
if we don’t, we’ll lose all we have found

*repeat

Chase the dream to the edge of the abyss
This is the only way to save the world

Don’t you cry,
Hide your tears
Because there’ll be a new day
Your fire
Will be heating
Thousands of hearts
Now, rise up
Hide your pain and fear far off
The one who is right will win
Remember, everything is in your hands

*repeat

    *Ponders* Did you post the lyrics and translation cos’ they’re inspirational or something?

  2. Am mesmerised by the music. The way the words and the music flow is is simply incredible.

    Glad that you are:) Origa simply kicked ass. My personal fav for months:D

  4. Er… forgive me but isn’t putting the translation with the original sorta redundant?

    I will say this though. GITS: SAC ROCKS!!! Love the intro here. Much better than Inner Universe.

    Hail to Yoko Kanno and her genius and Origa’s flexible vocals!!!

  5. There were parts that weren’t in English, so I put in the whole thing anyway. ^^;

    HAIL TO THEM ALL!

  6. Hmmm… do you have the song? Could you send to me please? Am curious to hear this song as I hadn’t caught the series in its entirety just yet.

  7. Yes, I do have it, but you can also get it from Gendou.com

    They have a really good selection of anime songs there. ^_^
