唾液塗れにした
蒼冷めた体は
視界にへばりついた
歪めた残酷絵

無情にも朽ちてく
短し命舞う
最後に見た記憶
笑う君殺め

PSYCHO 歪む廻る中
PSYCHO 残酷のまま

PSYCHO 歪む廻る中

Daeki mamire ni shita
Aozameta karada wa
Shikai ni hebari tsuita
Yugameta genjitsu-e

Mujō ni mo kuchiteku
Mijikashi inochi mau
Saigo ni mita kioku
Warau kimi…ayame

PSYCHO Yugamu mawaru naka
PSYCHO Zankoku no mama

Covered in saliva,
The body looks pale.
Sticking to my sight,
What I see is a twisted brutal picture.

It began to decay pitilessly,
The short life is whirling.
My last my memories is
You smiling… Die.

PSYCHO I'm twisted and wondering.
PSYCHO I'm still brutal.

PSYCHO I'm twisted and wondering.
PSYCHO I'm still brutal.

moist with saliva
body veiled with a white shade of pale
clinging to the view
is a distorted picture of torture

hopelessly rotting in vain
short lives dancing
the memory of my very last glimpse
was you smiling death to thee

PSYCHO - get distorted in the whirl
PSYCHO - still remained merciless

PSYCHO - get distorted in the whirl
PSYCHO - still remained merciless

Trivia

  • This song was initially called 新曲1 Shinkyoku 1 ("New Song 1") during Dir En Grey's indies days in 1997–98. Out of all indies songs, it kept its provisional name the longest, from May 1997 to October 1998. You can listen to the May 31, 1997, performance of the song here.
  • In an interview on bayfm OVER HEAT DX, Kyo jokingly introduces the remix as もうこりごり Mō Korigori and もうさんざん Mō Sanzan. Both means something along the lines of "I'm done" or "I've had enough".
  • In the album's band score, the last kanji in the first verse (残酷絵) are read as ざんこくえ zankoku-e, which is their correct reading. However, Kyo is audibly singing げんじつえ genjitsu-e as a play on words.
    • Likewise, while the band score gives no reading for the word "PSYCHO", which is usually read as サイコ saiko, it is given as ゼイ zei in an unknown magazine's facts check.
  • This song was often extended during live shows. The longest was 42 minutes, according to an interview in Haiiro no Ginka #52.
