⇵ Japanese ⇅

洗脳が嘆きを歌う
波打つ民衆歌う
国家繁栄国家繁栄国歌
OBLATEに包んだ爆弾

自由 愛情 暴動 権力
魔人婦穴 密売都市
政権 貧困 独裁 核
自由はあるだろ已の中

勝利以外 結果は滅亡
監理+結果は絶望
国家繁栄国家繁栄国歌
OBLATEに包んだT.I.

SPARK SUBLIMINAL VISION
L&P愛と平和消減
自由と言う名の爆裂都市

花火奇麗な夜空 子供は笑い喜ぶ

渦巻く歓声 実行 銃弾
減り込む ONE TWO 頭蓋ONE TWO THREE
渦巻く銃声 耳を突いた
弾ける看守 笑い叫ぶ

渦巻く感情 反乱 重罪
打ち抜く ONE TWO 子供 ONE TWO THREE
渦巻く洗浄 人は叫ぶ
覚醒 覚醒 覚醒 覚醒

⇵ Official Translation ⇅

Brainwash makes us sing a sorrowful song.
People in waves, they sing along.
For the country to prosper. For the country to prosper. It's the country's song.
It's a bomb that's just covered up.

Freedom Love Riot Power
whores and prostitutes
City of illicit sales
Politics Proverty Dictatorship Nuclear.
Is there such thing as freedom inside us?

Other then Victory the result is destruction
Being Supervised + the result equals despair.
For the country to prosper. For the country to prosper. It's the country's song.
It's TI that's just covered up.

SPARK SUPLIMINAL VISION
L&P Love and peace is vanished
It's a city of destruction, and it's called Freedom.

Beautiful Fireworks light the night as children smile with joy.

Cheering voices all around.
Execute Firearm Penetrates inside
ONE TWO in the cranium ONE TWO THREE
Sounds of firearm swirl like the whirlwind as it strike the ears.
The prison guard jumps and screams in laughter.

People's emotions swirl in a whirlwind.
Rebellion Felony Shoot away
ONE TWO Children ONE TWO THREE
Cleanse away. People scream
Awakening Awakening Awakening Awakening

Trivia

  • On VULGAR, the title of this song is written as "THE Ⅲ D EMPIRE". On later releases it's often written as "THE ⅢD EMPIRE".
  • 魔人婦穴 Marifuana refers to marijuana (normally written as マリファナ marifana), Kyo uses so-called ateji to censor it. In the album's band score, the word is censored with ××××.
  • The words 国家繁栄 Kokka Hanei sound similar to Kōkuhai and might be another ateji, in this case to refer to coke high. However, according to the band score, Kyo indeed sings Kokka Hanei.
