Random Kanji Knowledge time!

誕 means “to be born.”

生 is the symbol for “life/birth.”

日 represents “day.”

So put all three symbols together, and you get the context of something like, “the day you were born into life?”

The stroke order for 誕生日 is shown below.

Lyrics
I can’t even just speak normally
I really don’t know why
Am I dumb?

I’m all alone on my way home from school
I cannot say goodbye to anyone
Sitting … waiting wont change anything
That’s it! This is the beginning!

Man, everything’s so much easier online
It’s been awhile since I’ve last spoken (cough)
Being in sun or rain won’t change anything
That’s it! It really isn’t my fault at all!

So what if I have no friends?
So what if I’m all alone?
You know, if I get serious, I will be popular!

Oh, mirror, mirror on that wall, will you shatter? Will you fall?
Not at all! You must stop! Nevermore!
Oh, mirror, mirror on the wall, you don’t have to say it at all!
Just pretend you can’t hear it

You never reflect what’s inside – my beautiful, inner self
All those doubts, in your head, that is all
You only show this unappealing side of me that I can see
Time to face the truth!

Tomorrow is just like yesterday
I really don’t know why
I’m so dumb!

Lyrics
In your dreams, there is a place where your hearts now lies
It is more fragile than your waking life you have held
You can abandon it, yet it’s always there
Now, please go
It’s time to sleep in peace

My pulsing rage, living inside me, defiles wishes that I harbor
Before my mind fades away, deep in my heart, I remember

In this beautiful and yet very cruel world, which we live in
We keep asking ourselves alone, “Why was I the one who survived?”
And truly what is it that we want to protect the most?
With our strength and weakness, we fight
Reason and logic held together fade away

P.S. “Attack on Titan” is awesome. GO WATCH THE ANIME RIGHT NOW!

Lyrics
It’s not like we could have become best of friends
Right from the start
That’s the reality

In the midst of a serious battle
I find right here another me arising

This struggle-born awakening is a chance turn!
So grasp at it!
Draw
Duel! Dual-ism

Our cards sharpened by each other
A fated opponent I’ve found is a person mirroring the very beat of my heart

Even if it is just a tie, and together we slip and we fall right now
Keeping moving on

Lyrics
I stayed here all alone
As time was passing on
A simple, little date
And that is what I’ll say we’re on

The people close to town
The gentle, floating clouds
They share a laugh as I sit
Waiting all day long

A really simple formula
That I don’t understand at all
The ticking of the clock is rushing like my heart is going to stop

Lyrics
Sind sie das Essen? nein, Wir sind die Jäger! (They are the food and we are the hunters!)
Trampled flowers showered in blood
Names, which no one dares remember
When the birds fall, they await for wind that guides them to fly again
Though you pray for peace and no strife, not a thing would change in this life
We will stand and fight bitterness
It’s the way we’ll make a difference

Ignore the pigs who ridicule you
 for having the will to step over (dead bodies) and fight
Our complacency strengthens false reality
We’re as free as starving wolves

Channel the fear of your (own) imprisonment into your fists and fight the oppression
Travel beyond the walls that confine you
Hunters, be ready to slay your prey!
As you go on you’ll start to feel your body burn overflowing with anger
Pick up your bow, and quickly as you can, fire off a flame

Lyrics
Quietly, I try to laugh
Through the tears that I’m holding back
Colors that I picture flow
From a palette like a rainbow

“Please distinguish me”
Emotions draining from me
Fill me with your paint before
I disappear

“Love you”
A line that melts to drops of beautiful blue
Like gently falling tears
“Thank you”
Ascending like a deeply red melody
Is sweet music to my ears, ah~ah~ah~

“I will be Eraser’s mind”

Spinning inside of me in navy
Are revolving memories
As we are drawing just close enough
Our future is
With colors bright

“Love you”
Is painted out in shades of shadowy gray
A joy is filling me
“Thank you”
Falls slowly from my lips and is washed away
By only the purest kiss, ah~ah~ah~

Lyrics
And so, it is beginning now
What I’ve been picturing in my own heart, I am painting a story
All these feelings boil up inside

All preparations for battle are ready
The whispers of my heart tremble inside my chest
I’ve always been waiting for this moment

And although this time I may lose once more
If that happens, I’ll just stand up again and I’ll keep getting stronger until I win

I want to believe in it
I feel it now more than ever before
The “now” is a limit, which I will cross

And so, it is beginning now
What I’ve been picturing in my own heart, I am painting a story
All these feelings boil up inside

I feel I have it in my own grasp
It’s the most powerful trump card
My unbreakable heart … still enduring
With it, I’ll chase my dream!
