BACK-ON – wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY) | Lyrics, Romaji, LRC

To celebrate today’s release of BACK-ON‘s new single “wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY)“, which reached #1 and #2 respectively in digital download charts Mora.jp and iTunes Japan Top 10 Rock Songs even before the physical release, we are delighted to be able to share the lyrics of the title track “wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY)” with you!

As many will know, it is the second OP for the anime “Gundam Build Fighters” – the first, ニブンノイチ (Nibun no Ichi) also by BACK-ON, reached #12 in the Oricon charts and was always going to be a tough act to follow. However, the band have outdone themselves; the icing on the cake is Lil’ Fang, who brings strong female vocals into the mix, as it really adds another dimension to the song. The highlight for me personally are the rap parts by TEEDA that are interspersed with Lil’ Fang‘s singing: I got tingles when I heard these for the first time!

And as an even better surprise, BACK-ON actually released the full music video of wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY) on Youtube instead of just including it on their DVD special, so you can listen to/watch the full song below:

Whilst waiting for the CD to arrive, we have LittleOslo to thank for the Kanji lyrics and once we have an English translation, we will post it here.

Points of interest during our transcription process to Romaji:

  • An alternative pronunciation of 百 (hyaku) is used: ‘byaku’
  • A synonym of 運命 (unmei) or ‘Fate’ is used in the rap: 定め (sadame) is what TEEDA actually says
  • 瞳(め), usually pronounced ‘hitomi’, is replaced with ‘me’ as denoted in the brackets
  • 空 is pronounced ‘kara’ instead of the frequently used ‘sora’

Don’t forget you can always listen to all of BACK-ON‘s releases on our radio, which is found above the comments on the Music page.

Our standard disclaimer is as follows:

The usual kanji, romaji, karaoke and .lrc versions of the lyrics can be found below (after the cut-off) and we will always do our best to bring you the most accurate lyrics possible, so we do occasionally amend the spelling of the original English lyrics if we believe it to be appropriate. But as always, if you spot any mistakes, please let us know either by commenting below or via the contact form.

Finally, if you would like to post these lyrics elsewhere, please kindly link back to this page. :)

Kanji BACK-ON – wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY)

強がりの裏側に弱さを隠してた
逃げないよ、これからは、、、もう一度あの空へ!!

[Verse 1]
創り上げても壊して、また創って、何百回もAgain and again!
でも負ける痛みに慣れ過ぎてた
認められたくて、空回って強がり見せた所で
それじゃ、自分が虚しくなるだけじゃない?

[Rap]
uh 行こうか!it’s time to wake up! 目を醒ましな!強さは明確
forget the fear and doubt you gotta burn it up
一か八かさ!明日も不確か。
運命なんて壊せ Fight for yourself! 瞳(め)そらすなFly again!

[Chorus]
『強くなりたい!』と 願う事で、震えてた羽は闇を切り裂いてく!
キミがいるから、もう恐くないよ。その手握って、もう一度あの空へ!!

[Verse 2]
誰かの為になんて、1mmだって動いた事すらなかった。
でも、今は昨日までの僕じゃないんだ。
戦ってる僕らを戦わない人達は笑うけど
それじゃ、今までと1mmも変わらないんじゃない?

[Rap 2]
Are you ready for the battle to the next stage!
手を伸ばして、掴みとるのさチカラをEveryday!
Up side down! 常識なんて blast out!!
誰も追いつけないスピードで right now!
何度だって飛べるwith the follow wind 瞳をそらすなFly again!!

[Chorus 2]
『弱さだってキミの強さ』と、教えてくれたから僕はまた立ち上がれた!
キミの為なら、どんな痛みも 越えてここから、もう一度あの空へ!

[Bridge]
ただNo way! なんて吐き捨てたとこで
それでOkay!なんて世界じゃなくてそれでも…

[Chorus 1 & 2]
『強くなりたい!』と 願う事で、震えてた羽は闇を切り裂いてく!
キミがいるから、もう恐くないよ。その手握って
『弱さだってキミの強さ』と、教えてくれたから僕はまた立ち上がれた!
キミの為なら、どんな痛みも 越えてここから、もう一度あの空へ!
