'Olympos': opinion and attempted translations.(part 2)  
And then, here it comes 勇気.I'd put it at the same level as 鼓動 in my top list.I like everything in this song.
The lyrics are so deep it was almost impossible, for me, to translate them.My favourites are in the intro.In spite of the angst, the first stanza is pure love.
As for the instrumental side, there's a part in which they mix piano-drums-guitar.Simply perfect.
I love the encouraging feeling delivered, and the strenght in Jin's voice when he sings ganbare yo, ganbare yo, with that bit of huskiness in the end, is lovely.


kagami ni utsutta jibun ni iyaki ga sasu
mado GARASU ni utsutta shiyawase ga iya de
nanimo shinjirarenaku naru
dokoka kiete shimai sou de
hi ga kurete yuku dake no jinsei
sore mo mata ii you ni omou kedo
hitogomi no naka miushinatta kokoro
kizutsuite naeta yuuki

yuuki yuuki
ganbare yo ganbare yo mada kitto yareru

imamade tsukuriagete kita mono ga iya de
nanika to kurabete gomaka sou to suru kedo
michishirube ga wakaranaku naru
ZERO ni naretara ii noni
uwanuri wo kasanete kita jinsei
sore ja tsuzukanai to shitteta kara
mita me juushi de kazatte ita kokoro
soko ni sukoshi dake yuuki

yuuki yuuki
ganbare yo ganbare yo motto kitto yareru

dareka no kotoba ni mou hannou ha shinai
omae no koe dake wo kiite itai dake
haiiro no tsubasa wo sutete
yoake no sora wo mezashiteku
jikan ni okizari ni sareta kinou
moteamasu dake no imanorikoete
jibun no naka kara tsukamitotta
kono kobushi no naka no yuuki

yuuki yuuki
ganbare yo ganbare yo motto kitto yareru


I'm tired of the 'me' reflected in the mirror,
I dislike the happiness reflected in the window.
I can't believe in anything.
It seems to disappear somewhere,
the life of this day that is just turning in night,
even though I think that it is good too:
the heart I lost sight of in the crowd,
the withered bravery to get hurt.

courage courage
do your best, do your best,
you surely can still do it

I dislike the things made until now,
even though I seem to deceivingly compare them to something.
(I/we ?) don't know where to go
and yet it's okay if it would become nothing,
a life coated once more.
Then, (I/we ?) knew (I/we ?) couldn't go on
(my/our) heart adorned by theimportance of appearance
there, just a bit of bravery

courage courage
do your best, do your best,
you surely can still do more

I won't react to others' words anymore,
I want to listen to your voice only.
Throwing away these grey wings,
I aim at the sky which is dawning.
Yesterday left behind in time
(and) a present just beyond my control,
I grabbed the bravery,
which is in this fist.

courage courage
do your best, do your best,
you surely can still do more

Sankyuu is just LOL.Because of the ringing bells, at first I thought it was a Christmas song!XD
I'm not too fond of it, I don't dislike it but I don't like it either.
It's a happy song, instrumentally speaking(lyrics are another story).At last!I'll add.Too much angst isn't good for my health.

I'll look for you anywhere,
and perhaps I'm looking for you now.
But we can't see the future yet,
so I hum and drum.

Although we don't know what to hold to,
at the end of the time we live in,
I want you to stay.

Although it looks like a dream,
everyday I'll hold my strong feelings

Our paths will cross
on a street someone else has gone through(yet)
Will we be able to finally arrive
in a place no one knows?

Season come
under the street lights,
on the benches in the parks.
Our unchanging lives
will tie together.

On the other side of the phone,
I stay strong.
What can I do to relieve
your sadness?

Although we seem lonely,
in reality we are tied together,
no matter what.

Thus, I want to feel properly the living miracle,
the miracle of our meeting,
and so I say: 'Thank you'.

I know I left you, but
I'm happy to meet you again.

A big heart.
I want to wrap up the useless feelings
( I've grown until now)
so I want to release your hand

Our paths will cross
on a street someone else has gone through(yet)
Will we be able to finally arrive
in a place no one knows?

Thus I want to feel properly the living miracle,
the miracle of our meeting,
and so I say: 'Thank you'

Therefore: Thank you

The song I've liked the least is without any doubt Olympos, as I still have an hard time in trying to understand its meaning.:P
I don't like the lyrics nor the music.It's kind of a mess, to be honest, and it seems monotone.It's annoying.

Olympos is unknown
Olympos is a cry
A shy Ginsberg
Go to Pittsburgh*

Imperial sky,
that is a real love.
Olympos is far away
Olympos seems so

Surpass the usual level
Surpass the minus energy
Surpass the safety area

Olympos is Eden
You'll go there for love
or to protect(someone)
Olympos is Eden
Olympos seems so

Do what you REALLY want to do
Do the first thing you want to do
Also, end what you want to

OHH
If you go there
we'll meet in a dream.
Someday we'll go,
so shouldn't we start to prepare?

Olympos is unknown
Olympos is a cry
A shy Ginsberg
Go to Pittsburgh

Imperial sky,
that is a real love.
Olympos is far away
Olympos seems so

Surpass the usual level
Surpass the minus energy
Surpass the safety area

OHH
If you go there
you'll see and hear yourself,
because you're not a bad boy.
Try to go there.
If you go there,
we'll meet in a dream
If you go there,
we'll become a dream

Last but not least BANDAGE.Brilliant.I think it's the perfect introduction for the movie.I've liked it since the first listening, and it has a special meaning to me,
since it has been the very first song I've sung in a karaoke.In Tokyo.
In addition, it has been the responsible of my almost death while crossing the infamous Shibuya kousaten(aka Shibuya crossing).XD Damn big screen!
This track has all the elements that make me love a song:
- Good lyrics
- Well composed music
- Nice vocals
- Awesome riffs
Plus, it's rock(ish)!And as I said, I can't resist it when it comes to rock music.
It's simply pure love, and it has been well completed by a PV that  despite being randomly random has its own sense(which I still fail to catch, though XD )and its own cuteness.

Wow!This is the longest post ever!
It took me three days to put this thing up, 'cause this crappy livejournal kept on canceling ALL and I kept on forgetting to save the post somewhere else.LOL
See ya! <3

P.s: in the first stanza of the song Olympos, there's a weird line > Ginsberg shy, go to Pittsburgh.That is, probably,  a reference to Allen Ginsberg comes to Pittsburgh by D.Newman. Not sure, though, so take this piece of info with a grain of salt.
