Inter Raptor
Lyrics: Sakurai Atsushi
Music: Imai Hisashi

Cutting the wind
It's a simple thing
If it's my fate to live and then to die
Before I die and before I fall
Dance oh my blood with the song of the kill
Yes I'm dancing

Far as the eye can see
Monochrome the sun is a-sinking
Think that I could go mad in the silence
Crimson upon my lips 
Drips the red red blood overflowing
By blood do I live
Drink and swallow

All alone
Now I'm all alone
See me fly

Mad in the wind
Cutting crossing through
Rending the darkness, howling in the night
Though my wings might tear and fall away
Dance oh my blood with the song of the kill
Yes I'm dancing

Behold the brutal rogue
Feasting at the Last Supper
Night is a-coming now
Drink and swallow

Ah and now
Comes a fine, fine wind
Time to go

Cutting the wind
It's a simple thing
If it's my fate to live and then to die
Before I die and before I fall
Dance oh my blood with the song of the kill
Yes I'm dancing

I dreamed a dream of you
At the close of my final evening...
Night's breaking into dawn
Drink and swallow

All alone
Now I'm all alone
Ah and now
Comes a fine, fine wind
Time to go

All alone
Now I'm all alone
All alone
Now I'm all alone
See me fly

Mad in the wind
Cutting crossing through
Rending the darkness, howling in the night
Though my wings might tear and fall away
Dance oh my blood with the song of the kill

Cutting the wind
It's a simple thing
If it's my fate to live and then to die
Before I die and before I fall
Dance oh my blood with the song of the kill

Mad in the wind
Cutting crossing through
Rending the darkness, howling in the night
Though my wings might tear and fall away
Dance oh my blood with the song of the kill

Cutting the wind
It's a simple thing
If it's my fate to live and then to die
Before I die and before I fall
Dance oh my blood with the song of the kill

Yes I'm dancing


Note: Sakurai explains in several interviews that he came up with the words "Inter Raptor" to symbolize a raptor (as in a bird of prey) caught between death and rebirth. The raptor in turn is a symbol of a ruthless, live-for-the-moment approach to life. As a sharp-eyed, winged predator, the raptor sees everything clearly and kills because it has to kill to survive, living in the moment without fearing death.  Sakurai said he had adopted the raptor as a symbol of his ideal approach to life, now that is older and more settled in himself.  He said that the fighter plane image in "Jonathan Jet-Coaster" has essentially the same meaning as the raptor image.  I know a lot of Japanese fans thought this song was about a kamikaze pilot but based on what Sakurai has said, that's not how he intends it, because he's talking here about living, not about sacrificing himself.  This is a song about taking control, not about giving up control.

風切る シンプルだぜ
生きて死ぬのが運命なら
野垂れ死ぬその前に
殺しの歌に血は踊る 踊るんだ

辺り一面 モノクローム沈む太陽
狂いそうな静寂
唇には滴る赤い血が
生きる為さあ飲み干せ

独り ただ独り 飛ぶぜ

風狂う 突っ切るのさ
闇夜切り裂き吠えてやる
羽はもう千切れても
殺しの歌に血は踊る 踊るんだ

最後の晩餐 とびきりヤバイ奴
夜が来るぜ 飲み干せ

今だ いい風だ 行くぜ

風切る シンプルだろう
生きて死ぬのが運命なら
野垂れ死ぬその前に
殺しの歌に血は踊る 踊るんだ

最後の晩さ おまえの夢を見た…
夜が明けるぜ 飲み干せ

独り ただ独り
今だ いい風だ 行くぜ

独り ただ独り
独り ただ独り 飛ぶぜ

風狂う 突っ切るのさ
闇夜切り裂き吠えてやる
羽はもう千切れても
殺しの歌に血は踊る

風切る シンプルだぜ
生きて死ぬのが運命なら
野垂れ死ぬその前に
殺しの歌に血は踊る

風狂う 突っ切るのさ
闇夜切り裂き吠えてやる
羽はもう千切れても
殺しの歌に血は踊る

風切る シンプルだぜ
生きて死ぬのが運命なら
野垂れ死ぬその前に
殺しの歌に血は踊る

踊るんだ
