Gundam Rock Lyrics

 

TV Series Opening Narration

It is the year 0079 (double ‘O’ seventy-nine) of the universal century.
A half century has passed since earth began moving
it’s burgeoning population into gigantic orbiting space colonies.
A new home for mankind, where people are born and raised, and die…
Nine months ago, the cluster of colonies farthest from the earth
called Side 3 proclaimed itself the Principality of Zeon,
and launched a war of independence against the Earth Federation.
Initial fighting lasted over one month
and saw both sides lose half their respective populations.
People are horrified by the indescribable atrocities
that had been commited in the name of independence.
Eight months are passed since the rebellion began.
They are at a stalemate.

Fly, Gundam

Fire up your soul!
Fire up your soul!
Fire up your soul, Gundam
Make you rush – to the field

If you cherish a bright burning flame
Deep inside of your spirit to fight
Your enemby is in your sights,
Shoot them up! Shoot them up! Shoot them up!

Wreak your anger as you strike righteous blows, Gundam
Mobile Warrior – Gundam, Gundam

Get up on your feet!
Get up on your feet!
Get up on your feet, Gundam
Make you shout – to yourself

If you find there’s a dark burning grief
Deep inside of your poor hopeless soul
To drive off all your fears
You go up! You go Up! You go up!

Make your blood burn like a fire – feel the flame, Gundam
Mobile Warrior – Gundam, Gundam

Back up on your feet!
Back up on your feet!
Back up on your feet, Gundam
Reach on out – with your hands

If you still have a stable of love somewhere inside your small trembling heart
You will bring lasting peace
You take off! You take off! You take off!

You fly away into the deep outer space, Gundam
Mobile Warrior – Gundam, Gundam

Here Comes Char

Char! Char!
I will forget all the bad things that have happened to me
I will survive while I suffer on this battlefield
I’ll turn back and I won’t surrender
And I’m never gunna go through hell

Char! Char!

Beam of lightning flashes back for me to see
The Shadow of his soul

Char! Char! Char!
Char! Char! Char!

I never cared for seeing their blood
I kept my blade wiped clean
He’s got his sights set tightly on me
He’s got his target locked in

Char! Char! Char!
Char! Char! Char!

I throw away all the memories of my life before now
Left here alone to fight forever on this battle field
And no one will save me
From all the pain of the flames
When I’m burning in hell

Char! Char!

Beam of lightning flashes back for me to see
The shadow of his soul

Char! Char! Char!

Don’t wanta die without him dying,
Let him be with me by my side
I set my sights so tightly on him
I’ve got my target locked in

Char! Char! Char!
Char! Char! Char!

Here comes a sparkling beam
Splitting through the clouds
And I find that my life goes on

Star Children

Oh, the universe
Flickering heart beats in their veins
Star children sky high, star children sky high

I never wanna forget, no I don’t wanna forget
A little warmth within the time
That takes away my passing days

But for now and for and for now
Waiting alone in my room
Looking at the reaper
Waiting within the sparkling light

Oh, my mind is terrified, kept tied in heavy chains
But I’ll break free on some great day

A hundred billion, a million trillion stars up in the sky
Please shine your light down on me
I’d like to believe the star children are true
Hey you kokoro bless me with your powerful grace

I never wanna shudder, I never wanna shudder again

I only want the world to see me as a brave hearted man

Is there anybody, anybody, anybody ou there
Who can hear what I say?
With a drop of my tears relacting the earth
And the light of a brand new day

With a streak of white lightning tearing up the sky
I will raise up a war cry for the world to hear

A hundred billion, a million trillion stars up in the sky
Please smile awhile for me
I’d like to lead the way for star children to be free
May all of their new life be blessed with abundance and joy

Oh, the universe
Flickering heart beats in their veins
Star children sky high
Oh, the universe
Flickering heart beats in their veins
Star children sky high, star children sky high

The Cross of Sand

Lailee Lailee Lailee Lee La
Although you may stand here and sear on your life
Lailee Lailee Lay on your back
The wings you have worn are all ripped up and torn
Darkness will be waiting for you will find
The darkness will be following right behind
The light has gone so far away
You can’t see the brightness of the day
Still you believe with all your heart and soul
That there’s a truth and it’s worth reaching for

Only love can raise you up so high above
Higher than all of your prayers
Only love can raise you up so high above
Higher than all of your cares

Lailee Lailee Lailee Lee La
Everyone travels their journey through life
Lailee Lailee hold out your hand
Your dreams have slipped right
Through your fingers like sand
In exchange for the long seperation
In exchange for the long lonely teardrops
Only those who believe in their fantasies
Have a cross which they always must bear
And with your cold and shaking fingers
You’re telling me the word of god himself

Only love can raise you up so high above
Higher than all of your prayers
Only love can raise you up so high above
Higher than all of your cares

Alone In The Wind

Will you tell me why you cry?
In the wind, alone with pain
Why do you regret your love
There’s no honor in confessing your lies
If we want to be grown up
We’ve got to go through all the rain
After all that you’ve endured
You’re all alone for today

[Chorus]:
And what good would it really do
For me to comfort you
Ain’t a living soul
Who can meet your needs
For today, you’re alone
Standing in the wind
And then you’ll see that tomorrow
Will forever be

Will you tell me why you cry?
Was the wind to heavy for you?
You’re feeling empty and afraid
Your broken heart is covered in sand
If we want to be grown up
We’ve got to go through all the rain
After all that you’ve endured
You’re all alone for today

[Chorus] x2

Beginning

And I pray someday we’ll touch
And I pray someday we’ll cry

And I pray someday we’ll call
And I pray someday we’ll sway

And I pray someday we’ll cross
Cross each other on our way

And then we begin to fall in love

And time is going to be nurturing
A very wholesome love
And time is going to be growing
A very wholesome love

And time is going to be nurturing
A very wholesome love
And time is going to be growing
A very wholesome lovee

Encounter

Believe! To be grown up is to be able
To survive so many sorrows
And now,
You are alone and you’re shivering cold
My tender and sweet dear one

I’m holding your grief and everyday
It’s in my heart and I am bleeding
Believe! Let me take all of my tears to the sea

Oh, I miss you so (Oh, I miss you so)
And I’m longing for you (And I’m longing for you)
I turn and look up to the sky and it’s turning red

[Chorus] Yes, my sweet, yes, my sweetest
I wanna get back where you were
Take me back into your arms, oh once again
Yes, my sweet, yes, my sweetet
I wanna get back where you were

In this world there ain’t anymore who can live alone

Believe! You went away and left me standing
With my heart inside a shadow
And now, I’ve got to find you wherever you are
Cause you’ve gone so far

And so I dream we’ll meet again
Hey, maybe someday, maybe somewhere
Believe!
Let me take all of my tears to the sea

Oh, I love you so (Oh, I love you so)
And I’m craving for you (And I’m craving for you)
And all the devotion I have it fills up the sky

[Chorus]

Take me back into your arms, oh once again…

Amuro Forever

Amuro, don’t turne around now
That shining star is too far beyond you
Amuro, your native planet
Your true home land

Can you remember now
Whose childhood days gone by?
You woke up with the morning sun
It was warm and alive and fun
Amuro, don’t turn around, Amuro

Big boys, don’t you cry now,
Don’t you cry, don’t you cry
Just for tomorrow, for tomorrow,
For forever

Amuro, don’t turn around now
That twinkling star
Is at the end of the universe
Amuro, your abandoned planet,
Your true home land

Never forget the vow
Of your childhood days gone by
Take an oath on your youth
And swear to save peace
For all the things that you love
Amuro, don’t turn around, Amuro

Big boys, don’t you whine now,
Don’t you whine, don’t you whine
Just for tomorrow, for tomorrow,
For Forever

Can you remember now
Whose childhood days gone by?
You woke up with the morning sun
It was warm and alive and fun
Amuro, don’t turn around, Amuro

Big boys, don’t you cry now,
Don’t you cry, don’t you cry
Just for tomorrow, for tomorrow,
For forever

Garma zabi’s Funeral Speech by Gihren Zabi

We have lost a hero to our glorious cause,
but does this foreshadow our defeat?
No. It is a new beginning.
Compared to Earth Federation
the national resources of Zeon
are less than one thirteith of theirs.
Despite this how is it
that we have been able to fight the fight for so long?
It is because our goal in this war is a righteous one.
It’s been over fifty years since the elite of Earth,
consumed by greed took control of the Earth Federation.
We want our freedom.
Never forget the times when the Federation has trampled us!
We, the Principality of Zeon, have had a hard struggle
to achieve freedom for all citizens of our great nation.
My beloved brother, Garma Zabi, was sacraficed.
Why?
The war is at a stalemate.
Perhaps many of you have become complacent.
Such a lack of compassion is—
The Earth Federation has polluted our planet for their own greed.
We must send them a message, but not composed of words.
We have wasted too much time with words. We need action now.
The earthside elite must be taught a strong lesson for their corruption.
This is only the beginning of our war.
We ahve been putting more and more money
into our efforts towardsmaking our military stronger.
The Earth Federation has done the same.
Many of your fathers and brothers have perished valiantly
in the face of a contemptible enemy.
We must never forget
what the Federation has done to our people!
By focusing our anger and sorrow,
we are finally in a position where victory is within our grasp,
and once again, our nation will flourish.
Victory is the greatest tribute
we can pay those who sacrifice their lives for us!
Rise, Rise! Take your sorrow, and turn it into anger!
Zeon thirsts for the strength of its people!
SIEG ZEON!!! SIEG ZEON!!! SIEG ZEON!!! SIEG ZEON!!!
