Born to Be

Performed/Lyrics by: nano
Composed/Arranged by: WEST GROUND

Description: Mahou Sensou Ending Theme

Romaji:

They bring me down
All the world is stereotypical
Playing out rules, but act out another
Look now, you thought you had me by the upper-hand
But I see through the face you’ve covered cynical

Four, unleash the beast that lies inside of you
Three, take on the fire that burns in front of you
Two, let out the fear you feel surrounding you
One, become the soul that you were born to be

Tatoe ima made ikita SUTORATEJII wo miushinatte mo (It’s time now)
HANDORU wo kitte abareru yume no mama tsukisusume
Thrill no nai jinsei ni idomu nara
Imi mo nai kanjou wo idaku nara
Kakugo wo kimete ikundarou
Jibun jishin wo BREAK AWAY

Subete wo ubawareru unmei nara
Nani wo shinjite ikiteikunda
Ask yourself the way
There’s nothing to lose or die for!

Kako no kizu wo osoreru nara
Mirai sae mo suteru you na mon da
The choice is yours to make
This is what I choose to live for!

Tsumi no ishiki wo suteru tame ni
Gamushara ni hashiridashita
Mujun shita kireigoto narabete mo
Imasara imi mo nai darou?

“Gisei wa jibun dake de ii” nante
Seigi no kamen wo kabuttatte
Uwabe no HIIROO ni nare ya shinai
Sonna no jikan no muda darou?

Whatever your life throws at you, take it head on
Gotta prove yourself that this is how it goes
Whatever you choose to aim for, make or break it
Gotta live today like it could be your last

Tatoe kono saki erabu michi ga wakaranakute mo (It’s alright)
HIGHWAY wo tobashite takanaru kodou no mama oikoshiteike
SPEED no nai genjitsu ni makeru nara
Ate mo nai unmei wo egaku nara
Jinsei wo tsukandeikundarou
Jibun jishin wo LEAD THE WAY

Bokura no ushinawareru jikan no naka
Nani wo kanji omoidasu no?
Pray your heart to stay
So much you could find to live for

Hibi no mukui wa chiisakute mo
Ima ni makase aruiteikeba
Then you’ll find the way
This is the day

Subete wo ubawareru unmei nara
Nani wo shinjite ikiteikunda
Ask yourself the way
There’s nothing to lose or die for!

Kako no kizu wo osoreru nara
Mirai sae mo suteru you na mon da
The choice is yours to make
This is what I choose to live for!

English:

They bring me down;
All the world is stereotypical:
Playing out rules, but act out another.
Look now, you thought you had me by the upper-hand,
But I see through the face you’ve covered cynical.

Four, unleash the beast that lies inside of you.
Three, take on the fire that burns in front of you.
Two, let out the fear you feel surrounding you.
One, become the soul that you were born to be.

Even if you lose sight of the strategy you lived by to this day, (It’s time now!)
Turn the wheel, and push your way forward with your dreams going wild!
If you’re going to live a dull life,
If you’re going to hold onto meaningless feelings,
Are you preparing yourself for the worst?
Break away from yourself!

If you’re fated to have everything snatched away from you,
What should you go on believing in?
Ask yourself the way,
There’s nothing to lose or die for!

If you fear your past scars,
You might as well throw your future right out the window!
The choice is yours to make,
This is what I choose to live for!

You recklessly broke into a run
In order to repress your guilt.
But even if you make up a bunch of contradictory white lies,
Do they even mean anything by now?

Even if you don the mask of justice,
Saying, “I’m the only victim there needs to be.”,
You’ll never become an heroic-looking figure.
Isn’t all that just a waste of time?

Whatever your life throws at you, take it head on.
Gotta prove yourself that this is how it goes!
Whatever you choose to aim for, make or break it,
Gotta live today like it could be your last.

Even if you can’t tell which path to take ahead, (It’s alright!)
Dash down the highway, and get ahead of everything with your heartbeat racing!
If you’re going to let this speedless reality outrun you,
If you’re going to sketch out an aimless fate,
Will you end up getting a grip on life?
Lead the way for yourself!

Amid our lost time,
What do you feel and what do you remember?
Pray your heart to stay –
So much you could find to live for.

Even if the daily rewards are small,
If you entrust everything to the present, and keep on walking,
Then you’ll find the way;
This is the day.

If you’re fated to have everything snatched away from you,
What should you go on believing in?
Ask yourself the way,
There’s nothing to lose or die for!

If you fear your past scars,
You might as well throw your future right out the window!
The choice is yours to make,
This is what I choose to live for!

Kanji:

They bring me down
All the world is stereotypical
Playing out rules, but act out another
Look now, you thought you had me by the upper-hand
But I see through the face you’ve covered cynical

Four, unleash the beast that lies inside of you
Three, take on the fire that burns in front of you
Two, let out the fear you feel surrounding you
One, become the soul that you were born to be

たとえ今まで生きたストラテジーを見失っても(It’s time now)
ハンドルを切って暴れる夢のまま突き進め
スリルの無い人生に挑むなら
意味も無い感情を抱くなら
覚悟を決めていくんだろう
自分自身を BREAK AWAY

全てを奪われる運命なら
何を信じて生きていくんだ
Ask yourself the way
There’s nothing to lose or die for!

過去の傷を恐れるなら
未来さえも捨てるようなもんだ
The choice is yours to make
This is what I choose to live for!

罪の意識を捨てるために
ガムシャラに走り出した
矛盾したキレイゴト並べても
今更意味も無いだろう?

「犠牲は自分だけでいい」なんて
正義の仮面を被ったって
上辺のヒーローになれやしない
そんなの時間の無駄だろう?

Whatever your life throws at you, take it head on
Gotta prove yourself that this is how it goes
Whatever you choose to aim for, make or break it
Gotta live today like it could be your last

たとえこの先選ぶ道が分からなくても(It’s alright)
ハイウェイを飛ばして高鳴る鼓動のまま追い越していけ
スピードの無い現実に負けるなら
宛も無い運命を描くなら
人生を掴んで行くんだろう
自分自身を LEAD THE WAY

僕らの失われる時間の中
何を感じ思い出すの?
Pray your heart to stay
So much you could find to live for

日々の酬いは小さくても
今に任せ歩いていけば
Then you’ll find the way
This is the day

全てを奪われる運命なら
何を信じて生きていくんだ
Ask yourself the way
There’s nothing to lose or die for!

過去の傷を恐れるなら
未来さえも捨てるようなもんだ
The choice is yours to make
This is what I choose to live for!
