Default Gackt!

Gackt was in Malice Mizer (and released two albums with them) before becoming a solo artist.
Malice Mizer Albums: Voyage ~Sans Retour~ and Merveilles.

His songs have been used for anime, games and movies.
His voice is used for the Vocaloid Kamui Gackupo.

His song 'Another World' was like a trailer for the film he was starring in - Moon Child.

Two of his songs were theme songs for 'New Fist of the North Star; 'Lu:na' and 'Oasis'.

His songs 'Redemption' and 'Longing' were used as themes for DIRGE of CERBERUS -Final Fantasy VII-

Genesis Rhapsodos's character design and voice is Gackt!

He did Dragon Nest's theme song - 'Ever'.

I didn't know about him until now, but I checked out "Redemption" because you wrote that it is a FF theme song. It must be good if it's used in FF and it didn't disappoint me. I'm now off to listen to some other music from him.

I'm currently listening to Dispar and I like it. I have no clue when it comes to japanese music and it seems like I have been missing out on quite something. Now I just need to learn some Japanese to actually understand what he's saying.

Haha. Alrighty.
I'll post the ones I do know. xDD

Redemption.

As your silhouette silently returns to the sky
I kept watching, until my tears dried up
what else can I do besides avenge you?

I made a vow, upon my inerasable scars,
to never forget this overflowing sorrow

With a flutter of my broken wings, I shall try to erase everything
Someday we'll meet our demise. but until the final bell stops ringing

you told me
live as if you were to die tomorrow
feel as if you were to be reborn now
face as if you were to live forever

I traced my bloody tears with a quivering finger,
I had nothing to lose, nothing truth
Our fleeting memories are falling into darkness

Your final smile appeared, then vanished,
leaving only warmth behind

Now, if only your kind words were enough to heal me
I'd devote my entire body to this never-ending battle

Since one day everyone will return to the sky,
there need not be any words of farewell
make it up

With a flutter of my broken wings, I shall try to erase everything
Someday we'll meet our demise. but until the final bell stops ringing

Now, if only your kind words were enough to heal me
I'd devote my entire body to this never-ending battle

Redemption, redemption.


Dispar

You raise you head, looking so happy as you spout flattery and grovel
Playing with the snake inside of the overflowing sweet honey

Waving your chest
And playing with your finger
You thrust your wet mouth at me

You make a promise with your hot kiss
The pleasure cannot be stopped
The torn flesh quivers
Say goodbye to the empty husk...

While being held entwined in the legs of the spider
Above me, you keep demanding that I gasp painfully for you

Go mad with the savage dance,
Writhe and cry out in agony
Vanish away as you're embraced by flame

Even if the mistakes are repeated again
Everything, including your heart, is devoured completely
Snuggled up to the outstretched arms
The pale eyes closed

You make a promise with your hot kiss
The pleasure cannot be stopped
The torn flesh quivers
Say goodbye to the empty husk...

Even if the mistakes are repeated again
Everything, included your heart, is devoured completely
Snuggled up to the outstretched arms
The pale eyes closed


Ghost.

"Break me... Right now..."
Whispering that
Is a blasphemy against God that comes too late
Get Lost !!!

Cruel happenings will cure boredom
Be in anguish from the savage caress that enchants you.

If you want to drown with your eyes open
Get lost out of my head.

You've got to find the help of GOD.

Until we're allowed be free...
In agony from the plugs that pierce my body
Stretch out your hand further, heal me violently.

I said we got no guarantee
Embracing the mutilated corpse
Open your eyes further, break me violently.

Until we're allowed be free...
In agony from the plugs that pierce my body
Stretch out your hand further, heal me violently.


Mizérable.

Pretending not to notice
I gazed far outside a small window
The voice of an angel fills the sky
Embraced by the wind

The noise reflected in your eyes can't hear a thing
Now it's just "a trick of sweet time"
I whispered to the sky

Around and round... In the time left behind, I am now
Les miserables
I loved you too much and you are now on the other side of the wall
Laughing softly

My feelings will never reach you... I'll put them in a sigh

Bathed in the cold wind
Imagining these feelings night after night
The melody I hum softly
Is etched in time and disappears
I can't forget the sadness that will I can never go back
Even now I can't dye myself with these swaying emotions and my body
Is about to break...

Where can I go so that the sadness of being alone will disappear?
"I h a v e t o m o r r o w......"

Around and round... In the time left behind, I am now
Les miserables
I loved you too much and you are now on the other side of the wall
Laughing softly
Les miserables

Falling deeply into an almost forgotten dream, I am now
Les miserables
I loved you too much and you are now on the other side of the wall
Laughing softly

My feelings will never reach you... I'll put them in a sigh


Longing.

I hold you as my arms are dyed crimson
And offer up my blue-lit tears to the moon

As I gazed at the scars on your chest
The night whispered, "You can't go back now..."

Now close your eyes and offer up your prayers
There are no words left to you

Cry and shout with a voice that rips through
The darkness God loves so much, and end it all

Just lie quiet in my arms as I hold you
Because there is endless peace right here

Atone for all your sins and be reborn
There's nothing else you can do...

Now close your eyes and offer up your prayers
There are no words left to you.

Thanks a lot. I'd love to rep you but: "You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Riian-Taicho again."
