EGGRAMEN - Filk - Not Filk - R.I.P. Gossip Sea (English)

R.I.P. Gossip Sea

Original Song + Official Music Video

I did not translate this myself! This is just an adaptation of translations I've found and cobbled together, in hopes of making a singable English version.

I claim no credit to any part of the song; I just wanted to see if I could put together English lyrics that actually scan and sounds decent, because I couldn't find any good English cover versions. I do not guarantee any accuracy: in fact, significant liberties were taken for both translation and rhyming purposes!

Translations used: VocaDB translation (courtesy of Hazuki no Yume, whose original post is unfortunately gone), Meaningful Username's translation on the Vocaloid Lyrics Wiki.


Everyone gets just a little carried away
Criticizing, tearing into each other, every day
Like all we're here to do is kill the hours just playing
Games to hold off boredom till we finally kick the bucket

As for me, I'm dead-eyed as a fish out on land
There's all this emptiness in my life that I simply can't stand
It's like I'm nothing but a lurker staring out into space
As hollow as the inside of my brain just tucked behind my face

Aaaah, there's no excitement to be found
So said I, until I spied the best content around--

H-U-M-A-Ns! Hu-mans!

People call it gossip, I would call my
New favorite running soap, or novel on a dime
They say when you hold a grudge, you dig two graves
And everything that goes around will come around, but hey--

Bash them 'till they cry but don't make them disappear,
Or if they do, well, RIP, but you won't blame a mere
Observer but maybe the righteousness will be just enough
To finally drive them from this world

[instrumental break]

Through the loudest megaphones right to the sheep's ears
It's a matter of great justice to make sure that you all hear
Are you with us or against us, do you wanna disappear?
If you've ever heard of nuance we don't do that nonsense here

OP is a thief, a liar, p*dophile, no--
It doesn't matter, what's important is that you oughtta know
Not that any of it matters once the story starts to grow
Nothing compares to the Real Human drama show

Aaah, I just want to live in peace
But it's so fun to read about it happening to someone who's not me!

H-U-M-A-Ns! Hu-mans!

People call it gossip, I would call it my
New favorite way to rubberneck till we all crash and die
Addictive as music, let's all have some fun!
And flame each other until we burn brighter than the sun

Make this guy our fave for lulz, until we're bored
Then sacrifice him to the growing gossip horde
We're starving for content, so why not cut open
The underbelly of humanity?

Maybe it's a little mean (OK! OK!)
Maybe it's a little much (OK! OK!)
Maybe this has gone too far (OK! OK!)
Maybe this is dangerous (OK! OK!)

OK! OK! OK! OK! OK! OK! OK! OK! [x4]

R.I.P. to those drowned in this sea
Sinking in those waters still salty as can be
Everyone I know's gone missing in its depths
The shore's so far away, I wonder if we're next?

Isn't it sad?
Isn't it sad...?
Isn't is just so sad?!?

LOOOL, JK!

People call it gossip, I would call my
New favorite running soap, or novel on a dime
They say when you hold a grudge, you dig two graves
And everything that goes around will come around, but hey--

Bash them 'till they cry but don't make them disappear,
Or if they do, well, RIP, but you won't blame a mere
Observer but maybe the righteousness will be just enough
To really kill off somebody--

People call it gossip, I would call it my
New favorite way to rubberneck till we all crash and die
Addictive as music, let's all have some fun!
I'll call this hill my grave 'till it becomes my turn to run

Make this guy our fave for lulz, until we're bored
Then sacrifice him to the growing gossip horde
We're desperate for laughs, so why not cut open
The underbelly of humanity?

I just wanna keep on watching, watching, watching
I just wanna see the drama unfolding
I just wanna keep on watching, watching, watching
I just wanna see these people keep going

I just wanna keep on watching humanity
