The vocalist is screaming the whole time, yet I translated this song in such a serious manner. Well, the second half is based on the samurai code. More specifically, it’s the official code of the Shinsengumi, a sort of official police force that served the old Shogunate in Kyoto. This song takes place during the Bakumatsu period, a short span of time before the end of the Edo period.

幕末京都 治安が悪化
闇夜にはびこる全ての罪を自身の正義で断罪

bakumatsu Kyouto chian ga akka
yamiya ni habikoru subete no tsumi wo jishin no seigi de danzai

Public order in Kyoto deteriorated during the Bakumatsu period.
I will judge the sins running rampant in the night with my own sense of justice.

幕末京都 治安が悪化
自身の正義を貫けなければ
士道不覚悟で切腹

bakumatsu Kyouto chian ga akka
jishin no seigi wo tsuranakereba
shidou fukakugo de seppuku

Public order in Kyoto deteriorated during the Bakumatsu period.
If I do not maintain my sense of justice,
I am unprepared to be a samurai, and I must commit seppuku.

Genocide Insight
It was written in blood
If only sorrow could build a staircase
No f***ing reasons why
I’m just so sick

士道二背キ間敷事
局ヲ脱スルヲ不許
勝手二金策致不可
勝手二訴訟取扱不可
私ノ闘争ヲ不許

shidou ni somuki majiku koto
kyoku wo dassuru wo yurusazu
katte ni kinsaku itasu bekarazu
katte ni soshou toriatsukau bekarazu
watakushi no tousou wo yurusazu

Going against the samurai code is forbidden.
Withdrawing from the force is not allowed.
You must not wilfully obtain money from others.
You must not wilfully mediate disputes.
Fighting for purely personal reasons is forbidden.

右条々相背候者切腹申付ベク候也

migi joujou aiso mukusourou mono seppuku moushi tsuku beku sourou nari

One who commits any of the above violations must commit seppuku.
