Lyrics

End of the century
Misery, can it be
Chaos, who's the boss
Suffer a great loss
Man woman child
No longer exist
Only the good ones will be missed
Life, love, cherish it all
Who will be left to conquer it all
The end is coming
Don't start running
There's nowhere to run
Don't grab a gun
All over the land, hear this roar
No one know what's in store
Look for the star, he's on his way
No one knows what's in store
Love your self and all around
In a blink of an eye
You won't hear a sound
Your heart is pounding at rapid speed
Man will always feel the need for greed

Let's go for it
Now you can't miss
Al-Though-This-Was-The-Be-Ginning
Beware because the end is here

The sky is falling
Eyes are bawling
You had your chance
To make your stance
Love is a must
Life don't lust
Not time to fuss
People start to cuss
Cry out, who's going to care
Have no doubt, have no fear
Believe in me I'll show you the way

Some people think the year 2G
Is so scary, let's wait and see
The world will shut down, most won't admit
People go crazy, people catch fits
Fire breaks out
One way to stop
Play hip hop non stop stop
Remember these words
And what I said
You just might wake up brain dead

The feeling (feeling)
Is amazing (is amazing)
Oh boy, I want you (come on and get me)

Some just say the world is changing
Many people will agree
Many changes we are seeing
I just say...
It's the end...
It's the end...
It's the end of the century

Song Production Information

beatmania IIDX

dj TAKA

Actually, about a year and a half ago, there were several places that weren't very fond of eurobeat music. That is, until BRILLIANT 2U appeared...
Despite the euro tone of this work, it has a very thick essence of club music, and it gives off a flashy yet passive, techno-like impression.
Due to the collaboration with the dance compilation, the IIDX series has a broad range of euro sounds. Its influence is very big, don't you think?
Today, my good brother NAOKI would like to give a comment.

NAOKI

As a fan of the IIDX series, this is a dream come true.
This time, with respect to dj TAKA, I have arranged for three of my songs to appear in IIDX 3rd style and to top it off, a NAOKI-themed course is also being prepared.
A hidden song with a "fin de siècle" vibe, END OF THE CENTURY is now publicly available. I would like for everyone to play it and let the adrenaline of this track burst through them!
