Area 11 - Bōsōzoku Symphonic Lyrics




[Ryōkan]
世の中は (Yo no naka wa, Our life in this world)
何にたとへん (nani ni tatoen, to what shall I compare it?)
山彦の (yamabiko no, It's like an echo)
こたふる聲の (kotauru koe no, resounding through the mountains)
空しきがごと (munashiki ga goto, and off into the empty sky.)
[x2]

[All the Lights in the Sky]
There's three parts to love,
Or so I believe.
There's a part of you you lose,
And another you receive.
Here I break with the concept,
Though it's central to the piece.
Leave my mark on the canvas,
That only you can see.

I deferred my happiness,
For loneliness and time.
But once I'm where I wanna be,
You'll be far behind.

All the lights in the sky,
Are falling to the ground.
And the chains that pull me down,
Slacken off when you're around.
As the line begins to blur.

And it's comforting to know,
But I'll rip out all the hooks from my skin so I can grow.

Sometimes I disagreed,
Just to hear you scream.
You were right, but I needed you to give emotion back to me.

Here I break with the concept,
And though it's central to the piece,
I leave my mark on the canvas,
That only you can see.

I deferred my happiness,
For loneliness and time.
But once I'm where I wanna be,
I'm not leaving you, I'm not leaving you!

All the lights in the sky,
Are falling to the ground.
And the chains that pull me down,
They pull me down!
They slacken off when you're around.
As the line begins to blur.

And it's comforting to know,
But I'll rip out all the hooks from my skin so I can grow.
Yeah I'll rip out all the hooks from my skin so I can grow.
Yeah I will rip out all the love from my skin so I can grow.

[Black Hole Giga Drill]
All the lights in the sky!
All the lights in the sky!

Area 11 Bōsōzoku Symphonic Comments
  1. Exhilus

    I guess I will be the newest comment in over a year.

  2. megamyte

    has anyone else noticed how 6:50 to 7:18 sounds a lot like Override [A]??

  3. Mychael Hindsman

    I'm screaming it took me an hour to remember this song and I am screaming inside

  4. UltraGayInHD

    i really like black hole giga drill

  5. Harold Duggan

    3 parts to love, a part of you lose and another you receive...
    isn't that 2 parts?

    ultrastevolution

    Harold Duggan the third part I believe is "the part that stays the same" it's not mentioned in the lyrics at all, just something I've felt was always implied :)

  6. TheRavinRaven -Alex-

    why are people so astonished by the 11:11, 11th track, area 11 thing

  7. A Girl Named Tea

    Bohemian Rhapsody's retarded cousin.

  8. LTM

    not listened to this in years and forgot how good it was

  9. Morthana M

    I love it

  10. Liz Dawn

    the song is 11:11.....lucky song. probably why its like the best song ever

  11. Spheres

    Yo people... 6:25 "Liiiiines faaaade oooooout! But you iluminaaaate! The path back hoooome, the path you've shown me!" Try singing it along. Coincidence?

    scottee5403

    holy shit...

    ayy lmao

    ggod fucking catch!

    Martyn Skytech

    that was the mark sparkles left on the canvas.

    I2YUNG4U

    Spheres wait what's this about?

    Nicholas Subocz

    I2YUNG4U They have another song that has that exact litemotif on their 2nd album. Those are the lyrics to said song.

  12. Queen Tepig

    this is my favorite song on the hole album.

  13. Hauk Pauk

    For those wondering: It's based off of Akira :D

  14. johnalexchr

    I just realized: this song is 11:11 long, made by area 11 and is the 11th song in the album. Coincidence? I think not! Illuminati confirmed!

    QuisqueyanGuy

    Or this is a tribute to the area 11 in code geass?

    Ab Lachino

    oh hell no

    Maxiestagate50

    Their entire channel is based around Code Geass. (Their name I mean, And the fact that their fans are called Elevens)

    Chainsaw Cat

    Oh hell yeah

  15. Eduardo Sousa

    3:49 - 4:31
    Am I the only one who hears Naruto in this?

    nano cowie

    eh, im not too sure. It's reminiscent but i think that it just mimics old timely Japanese stuff while they did a proper Naruto one in legendary sannin

  16. Browncoatlowe

    Shame they can't really do this live. Just cos this is still my favourite track.

  17. James Cook

    I love the section at 3:30 so much

    GLHF

    +James Cook SAME

  18. Yoshiepic

    whats this baised off of?

    Browncoatlowe

    Based off? Nothing. It's original.

    Nicholas Chu

    +Yoshiepic Should be based off of the Japanese culture itself, from the japanese poems to the string styled music

    dontdithishome

    +Yoshiepic Akira!

  19. Valentijn

    i fucking love the ending

  20. David Jepordies

    世の中は (Yo no naka wa, Our life in this world)
    何にたとへん (nani ni tatoen, to what shall I compare it?)
    山彦の (yamabiko no, It's like an echo)
    こたふる聲の (kotauru koe no, resounding through the mountains)
    空しきがごと (munashiki ga goto, and off into the empty sky.)

    Just in case you needed to understand the introduction

  21. zenco

    Will this album ever be available again? I would buy it in a heartbeat.

    Eroc33

    @zenco It's available here: http://musicglue.com/area11/ (which is linked from their site so pretty sure that's official)

  22. ThreshIsAPrison

    Anyone else come for 10:00? Just me? Ok...

  23. Jake Wright

    I wish this didn't exist, it ruins the whole album.

    ParaNoza

    +Jake Wright You said it ruins the album and you wished it didn't exist. So i'm gonna do the same and say that you ruin humanity and I wish you didn't exist.

    Jake Wright

    @ParaNoza
    But I'm talking about a song, you are talking about a human being.

    You are a sociopathic piece of shit and should be put in a rubber room.

    ParaNoza

    +Jake Wright yeah but you cant take a joke :P

    hideyxshi

    +ParaNoza how the hell is that a joke??

    Ethan Sarien-Averin

    I swear both of these albums are concept albums in reality because of Digital Haunt

  24. Colliding With Mars

    Not sure if this would exactly count as prog, but hey, good prog rock tune!

  25. littleasianalex

    Leave it up to area 11 to make 11 minute long songs

    Cie

    I think one of their songs in the new album is gonna be 20 minutes or longer lol

  26. Quick Games

    世の中は
    何にたとへん
    山彦の
    こたふる聲の
    空しきがごと

    Byran Allen

    +IEtherealHawk So I wasn't the only one who thought that...

  28. BoxingAstronaut

  35. The Professional Novice

    So... how many movements are there? where do the movements start and begin? and just what on earth is a movement? please answer if you know for sure.

    The Professional Novice

    awesome, thanks for the help. So a movement is just like a unique part of a symphony or something?

  36. wilfred grasse

    When he says 'I'll rip out all the hooks' I just think of that scene in the Last King of Scotland....

    wilfred grasse

    @Why Not Right what?

    Why Not

    It reminded me of the end of that movie, so I asked a rhetorical question to show my like mindedness

    wilfred grasse

    @Why Not Ah, well, why not?

    ZeroTaku

    +Cole Downs What does that part have anything to do with Akira? I don't remember *anything* involving hooks in Akira.

  37. Olly Davies

    Love this too much

  38. JT3633

    Those exhausted vocals in movement 4. I am in love with this song

  39. Jeremy Futch

    5:37 music from reverse world when simon fights the cow

    Jack Gibbs

    YES I have been wondering that was from for weeks! Thank you!

    Jeremy Futch

    i commented that so i can press the link to hear the music, not to let everyone know where it was from

    Jack Gibbs

    well its nice to know

    Jeremy Futch

    @jim bob

    Jack Gibbs

  40. Xenok3

  41. Jimmy Capple

    I love the B'Jesus out of this

  42. Alan Lewis

    So this song is 11:11 it is also the 11th track and it was made by area 11 coincidence I think not

    The Professional Novice

    #illuminati  Half-Life 3 confirmed!

    DeusVerve

    Release on 01 31 2013. 1+3+1+2+1+3 = 11

    The Professional Novice

    Dan: If you look at it from a birds eye view it spells W for "Wind Waker" :D
    Arin: *facepalm* no, it spells W for "Wow, that's a stretch"

    Alan Lewis

    @Denied Gameplay they are some clever bastards

    junglemonkey57

    @The Professional Novice
     I get that reference :)

  43. Nyx Hound

    have found a way to use this song in my English Advert

  44. lja1993

    5:35 - 7:17... sounds like it jumped straight out of an Adobe Photoshop Keygen.. haha

    Peanut1399

    or VVVVVV

  45. Amy Roberts

    Listened to this album three times in one day! 

  46. Annaie1234

    i feel as though this is a song i can dance to.

  47. JAFFA

    Sparkles* should upload the original, longer version of this song (what is it, fifteen minutes long?) to the channel, I'll bet I'm not the only one that would love to hear it.

    Jeroen

    He said he took out build ups etc, so the song would probably just be the same, just longer.

    JAFFA

    Longer is good.

    The Professional Novice

    @Captain Fuckyou *wink wink*

    JAFFA

    @The Professional Novice *Wink wink* ProgMetal *Wink wink*

  48. connbob1

    7:19 best part

    lja1993

    Well I personally think the best part is from 0:00 to 11:11 :P

    ParaNoza

    +lja1993 So you dont dig the last second?

  49. IRHTY12

    Sparkles* sounds like a sim in the first movement...

  50. The Fallen One

    Nearly a year and can't get enough of this album

  51. GhoulishTendancies

    absolutely brilliant my favourite song I think it at the very begging sounds like         ac revelations and then it just gets better

  52. Damocles

    area 11 rules!

  53. SuicidexPuppy 'DJ SxP'

    11 that is all

  54. preetsidoodle

    Listening to this 11 months after it came out...

  55. SkilledxMonkey

    i love 2,217 and i hate 37 people

    Danielle Forenserth

    Your pic is fucking awesome.

    ximipe epimix

    Gurren lagann.
    Nuff said.

  56. Minihood31770

    Can't wait for the 11th second of the 11th minute of the 11th song on the 11th album by Area 11 which should be released on 11/11 at 11:11:11.11. Unfortunately I don't think that they will still be alive in 2111, which would be abbreviated as /11 on dates. Otherwise It could be released on 11/11/11

  57. anouk derhaag

    Its a symphonic , symphonics are a compilation of music calles a composition. Seeing as to this has more than 1 movement in it its not based on a signle Anime but on more than i subject hope it answered your question ;)
    -Jur Bergs

  58. BIackPhantom

    So, on what anime is this one based?

    Annaie1234

    Who cares its awesome

    BIackPhantom

    Well, clearly I care, hence why I asked the question.

    NinjaFawful

    Akira ? Maybe

  59. PandasIncMatt

    I hate 36 people

    Robert Williams

    Hater's gonna hate.
    Just leave them to it and think of happier things, like awesome music!

    Jonathon Lawson

    @Taliesin Swordsage EXTREMELY awesome music you mean.
    but seriously, people can like and dislike what they want, maybe this just wasn't for them. 

  60. PandasIncMatt

    Not enough people see this :(

  61. The Game Chamber

    The new Google+ thing for YouTube is terrible

    Jeroen

    No it's not, most spammy comments have just gone due the new filters. It only shows comments that Google thinks you find interesting. That just made it so much more usable. Also it has never been this easy to use Google Plus with YouTube now which is something I was really looking forward to. 

  62. Tiffany Bligh

    I always get sad when it ends :,(

  63. SamBrev

    i think this song tells a story, or the first three movements anyway. maybe a history, or maybe someone's life. then the 4th movement, well, that can be studied alone, but damn, this song amazes me every time i hear it. it gives you something new each time and i feel, as with all area 11 music, that there is no meaning behind it, but it means whatever it means to you. either way, it's beautiful. thanks as ever

    chrisp196

    @Jeroen Bollen Oh ok then, in that case I am also curious xD

    SamBrev

    @chrisp196 in the commentary (atlits complete) sparkles originally wanted this to be an overture of all the other songs (you can still pick out some of the riffs if you're lucky), but eventually decided against it.

    the first part, ryokan, is an old japanese poem by a buddhist monk of that name. go search up the words, they're on the wiki.
    the second, senbazuru, means something to do with a thousand paper cranes. it's just an opportunity for sparks to waste money on new japanese sound effects :) (his excuse is he used them in the new legendary sannin)
    the third, redline, was described as "if muse went 8-bit". one song on their new album sounds just like it.
    the fourth, all the lights in the sky, was something they were drafting, and sparks 'accidentally' recorded it in one take, so yeah.
    and finally, black hole giga drill is, well, whatever. from the trailer.

    but i still stick to my old plan :)

    chrisp196

    @SamBrev Oh wow xD *off to wikipedia*

    SamBrev

    @chrisp196 got all of that off the commentary as i said, and http://digitalhaunt.wikia.com/wiki/B%C5%8Ds%C5%8Dzoku_Symphonic

    chrisp196

    @SamBrev Oh cool \o/

  64. Atlas Runner

    I listen to this song every day just to comprehend the existence of everything on Earth.  

  65. Maxime v.d. Berg

    Can't wait for the special version of this!

  66. Jur Bergs

    You really seem to have the potential if so, do the whole song and i will donate!

  67. crawlings

    At 3:11 it makes me think of something from Charlie and the chocolate factory! Lol

  68. J Mc

    sure, just make sure you learn how to play the whole song and everything then post it, im sure it will be wonderful :)

  69. Pontus Andersson

    Youtube has a tendancy to add a second :P

  70. bezerkoid

    If you want to learn Japanese, a website named Duolingo is going to put a course up, but it might take a while for the beginning stage to be finished. As benred said, a tutor is an option, and other online courses may be available.

  71. - Magic Bomb -

    Well, it's the same as learning any language. A tutor is the best way, but quite expensive, and if you're naturally bad as languages (like me) it is extremely difficult, but if you're the opposite, you will pick it up easily.

  72. dan right

    Does anyone know a good place to learn Japanese?

  73. Linley Cross

    "Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is a method of....."
    *looks at YouTube Area11 playlist*
    *30 minutes later*
    "Ah....."

  74. Richard Pope

    Wha...wha where did the movement guide go ;-;

  75. Nick Alfonso

  88. Airi

    omg i can't get enough of Area 11 they rock

  89. Ryan

    You know, this songs is so much more epic backwards :P

  90. Skystarry75

    Is it strange that I like movement 2 the best? Having found out the name on the Yogscast wiki, I've been inspired to make what it's named after...

  91. Khalony

    That's just a Youtube bug with the ending time, you can see that it actually just skips 11:11 and goes straight to 11:12

  92. AGRoper

    what a coincidence?????

  93. SirMonticus

    The area of Japan is 11 square units

  94. Bee Barto

    only one second off...

  95. Skystarry75

    My top 3 are Cassandra (pt II), Shi No Barado and Euphemia in no particular order... They're the only ones I know all the lyrics to at the moment. I can't really decided which one of them I like the most...

  96. Keirtheweird

    theres also reply boys, go fap instrumental and heaven piercing giga drill piano version

  97. Korra Targaryen

    That was just YouTube messing with the video, the video is actually 11 mins 11 secs.
