English lyrics

NY demo lyrics


[L]
I'm sitting down and pouring tea
As if I do it every day
Go through the motions
Like the hands upon a clock

Though it feels right, a part of me
Knows that it's wrong
As if another's will had moved me

It's like I'm hitting all my marks
As if I'm acting in a play
So out of character, yet somehow not a shock

I'm like a software program
Caught inside an endless loop
Just bad code that keeps repeating

Is this the way it ends now?
How could I not see this coming?
My camera's cloudy lens now
Takes much darker pictures than before

[Light]
I know by now you understand
You're but a pawn upon a board
I've won the game, but never
Gave up half my years

Life will continue just the way
I've always planned
Let the cold, hard justice crash the system

I've always stayed a step ahead
But you were with me all the way
Until I played upon a Shinigami's fears

For Misa's love, she wrote your name
Then left upon a breeze
Into the sands of dust and darkness

This is the way it ends now
See it flicker, hear it humming
My power just extends now
Rem has written, you will write no more

[L]
I've seen through you right from the start

[Light]
I've simply let you play your part

[L]
You'll never, ever get away

[Light]
Don't you see that you will die today?

[L]
Is this the way it ends now?
How could I not see this coming?
The message that it sends now
Sounds exactly like a closing door

[Light]
This is the way it ends now
See it blazing, hear it drumming

[L]
Like a closing door

[Light]
Feel how a minute spends now
When you wish you had a minute more

[L]
Like a closing door

[Light]
A minute more

Script lyrics


[Light]
I know by now you understand
You're but a pawn upon a board
I've won the game, but never
Gave up half my years

Life will continue just the way
I've always planned
Let cold, hard justice crash the system

I've always stayed a step ahead
But you were with me all the way
Until I played upon a Shinigami's fears

For Misa's love, Rem wrote your name
Then left upon a breeze
Into the sands of dust and darkness

This is the way it ends now
See it flicker, hear it humming
My power just extends now
Rem has written, you will write no more

[Light]
I've simply let you play your part

You'll never, ever get away

[Light]
Don't you see that you will die today?

[L]
Is this the way it ends now?
How could I not see this coming?
The message that it sends now
Sounds exactly like a closing door

[Light]
This is the way it ends now
See it blazing, hear it drumming

[Light/L]
Feel how a minute spends now
When you wish you had a minute more
A minute more

[Light (spoken)]
Looks like I win.

Japanese lyricsEdit

Japanese

もう解っただろう お前は終わりだ
このゲームチェックメイト 完璧だ
計画通り正義貫く
僕が世界を正す

ミサを愛した死神が遂に
お前の名前を書いた
そして死神は闇の中
砂に変わり消えた

ゲームは遂にここで終わるのさ
最後に何か言いたきゃ聞いてやる

最初からキラと
解っていただろう?
逃げられはしない
お前は死ぬ僕の勝ちだ
まだ見えないか 何が起こるかを
虚しいだけだゲームが終わる時

さあフィナーレだ その顔見納め
何もかも
お前が死ねば待ち望んだ日々が
終わるだろう
始まる

「僕の勝ちだ」
