Lyrics


Battle of Pride
H.Y.P.N.O.S.I.S. Mic!
Battle of Pride

---(Ichiro Yamada)---
Now open the door (door) and step forward (dope)
And watch me (aye!), Ichiro on the floor
Always top rank, jacking center stage
Rhyming with bold desire, settling all the old scores

---(Jiro Yamada)---
Jiro’s rhymin’ with hella skill, Bukuro’s gonna crush you (Bounce! Bounce!)
Settin’ the crowd on fire in the blink of an eye (Bomb! Bomb! Bomb!)
I’m not gonna lose to anybody, tears ain’t gonna get you mercy
1, 2, 3 make the Busters--we could do this in our sleep

---(Saburo Yamada)---
Getting overemotional and just howling isn’t my style
I just weave together striking lyrics smooth as silk
I’ve conquered this Hypnosis Mic; I understand the reasons we fight
Making the latest news on livestream--This is the proof we’re alive

---(Buster Bros!!!)---
Bounce, bounce, make it bounce, make it bounce, bounce
Buster Bros!!! shakes the stage and makes it bounce, bounce

---(Samatoki Aohitsugi)---
If you think you can get me in my sleep, you little rats
Let me get your coffin ready so I can bury you
In front of Samatoki-sama don’t you dare hang your head, brat
Don’t test the Mr. Hardcore, I’ll sink you to the ocean’s depths

---(Jyuto Iruma)---
ILLMATIC Jyuto Iruma’s the only ill one here
If you want to fight bearing your scars then I won’t be picky with my means
You weaklings dirtying Hama have no shelter under the law
I don’t need a warrant to search your house, sleep with one eye open tonight

---(Rio Mason Busujima)---
Alarms from the bayside; cease your futile resistance
I’ve taken aim with this rifle--next a hole’s shot through your raincoat
This is a battlefield of words and you outlaws have been chosen
What you need here is pride, discord rings out endlessly

---(MAD TRIGGER CREW)---
Bounce, bounce, make it bounce, make it bounce, bounce
MAD TRIGGER CREW shakes the stage and makes it bounce, bounce

---(Kazusato Doan)---
Dark liberty, North Bastard, Doan’s risen up again
Akabane breaking out of the script; next is our turn

---(Ryozan Kokuri)---
Ryozan spreading lying verses
You spoiled brats go disappear like the wires from wi-fi

---(Kenei Saragi)---
This’s the crazy doctor’s scalpel and I will carve into you a test
A mad scientist of words, I’ll make you into my guinea pig!

---(North Bastard)---
Bounce, bounce, make it bounce, make it bounce, bounce
North Bastard shakes the stage and makes it bounce, bounce

---(All)---
Let’s start this showtime
Sparks flying in this fight
Do not cross, out of control
We’re locking it down
Bounce, bounce, make it bounce
Make it bounce, bounce
Scorching the floor with one verse
(Battle of Pride)

Proving we’re alive
No way we’re afraid
Writing our own legend
We’re snagging our glory here
Bounce bounce make it bounce
Make it bounce bounce
Bet your everything and survive

The rule is just to
Bounce bounce bounce
It’s kill or be killed so
Bounce bounce bounce
Battle of Pride

---(Ramuda Amemura)---
Kaleidoscopic mirages dye the whole city pink--
That’s Ramuda’s tone (‘Kay ‘kay!)
It’s Fling Posse and (Bouncin’) some fluffy wuffy drops (Dropin’)
Stealing hearts from all the ladies at once

---(Gentaro Yumeno)---
A wonderful coincidence our interpretations on life and death match
Ah, as if in bitter honey, I’ve resigned myself to this world
If, in search of pride, I devote myself to this fleeting twilight
What might I gain? Ah, how heartless...

---(Dice Arisugawa)---
Goin’ at it persistent, today I’ll treat you to a burnin’ fight
Today the bet’s our lives--Life is short! (Dead or Alive)
I’ll take all the money, money, flashy as hell I’ll get it get it
This’s our triumphant victory parade, Shibuya’s on stage

---(Fling Posse)---
Bounce, bounce, make it bounce, make it bounce, bounce
Fling Posse shakes the stage and makes it bounce, bounce

---(Jakurai Jinguji)---
From within strife buds the omen of war
Within Pandora’s box remains the hope we’d sought for
The air of this stagnant city--I breathe it all in
“You must struggle against yourself”--is what we, Matenro, preach

---(Hifumi Izanami)---
All you lost kittens--I’ll fill you up with love
No hesitation, drink up, and come right to me (Party on!)
Ying and yang are both the main characters
GIGOLO and champagne (Cheers!) cast a spell on you ‘till morning breaks

---(Doppo Kannonzaka)---
Snarfing down a beef bowl doing overtime all alone
“Ah, I’m worried about my fat intake”
The physical’s gonna come back a failing grade
Absconding to a parallel world (I wish…)
I’m taking a trip to India alone (Why though?!)
Constantly resetting this corporate drone life

---(Matenro)---
Bounce, bounce, make it bounce, make it bounce, bounce
Matenro shakes the stage and makes it bounce, bounce

---(Jinpachi Ho-Zuki)---
Seiya! Soiya! Asakusa! Pushin’ my way into this fight
Onigawara Bombers--Jinpachi! It ain't in my nature to be crooked

---(Masamune Komagata)---
Booze, booze, bring on the booze!
Masamune, at the battlefield, don’t have to break a sweat or a glass

---(Doshiro Yogo)---
If you amateurs don’t know the taste of this soba, , Doshiro, can’t pay out
Preparation and coincidence go hand in hand, novices, get outta here

---(Onigawara Bombers)---
Bounce, bounce, make it bounce, make it bounce, bounce
Onigawara Bombers shakes the stage and makes it bounce, bounce

---(All)---
Let’s start this showtime
Sparks flying in this fight
Do not cross, out of control
We’re locking it down
Bounce, bounce, make it bounce
Make it bounce, bounce
Scorching the floor with one verse
(Battle of Pride)

Proving we’re alive
No way we’re afraid
Writing our own legend
We’re snagging our glory here
Bounce bounce make it bounce
Make it bounce bounce
Bet your everything and survive

The rule is just to
Bounce bounce bounce
It’s kill or be killed so
Bounce bounce bounce
Battle of Pride

---(Sasara Nurude)---
Hi! Hello! Looks like you’re pretty nervous (That so?)
But I’m so bored of waiting I could fall right asleep~ (Yawn~)
This Sasara-san’s gonna flip the table and make a big mess, y’know?
Don’t be crabby a lobster’s got your nose and don’t be shellfish with the tip~

---(Rosho Tsutsujimori)---
Full of self-proclaimed stage fight--to Rosho your attention (Bathroom together?)
Our leader’s a little bit too much of an idiot (You gotta be kiddin’ me!)
Osaka--despite the clownery we bring the heat
Let me teach you what a true insult really is

---(Rei Amayado)---
Moving secret behind the scenes (Fake) I’ve read through this farce (MasterMind)
You kiddies spin in the palm of my hand (Like vinyl)
Dabbing a paw where it doesn’t belong just shows off your inexperience
You can’t tell me nothin’, I’ll sterilize you germs

---(Dotsuitare Hompo)---
Bounce, bounce, make it bounce, make it bounce, bounce
Dotsuitare Hompo shakes the stage and makes it bounce, bounce

---(Kuko Harai)---
We share our fate--Nagoya, open your eyes and start this session
Bring on the questions, I’ll argue you down so quit thinkin’ you can keep actin’ so cruel
Our lifelines connect us, unbreakable bonds
If you wanna pick this fight, divine punishment’s waitin’! That’s my sermon

---(Jyushi Aimono)---
On twilight’s dark side a butterfly alights
Clinging to my yet unhealed wounds I cry out (I cry)
The moonlight and shadows beckon with pitch-black wings, allowing no escape
“There is naught that could defeat us”

---(Hitoya Amaguni)---
Bad Ass Temple, the law moves according to me
I’ll snap the compendium shut and deliver you your judgement
There’s something I can’t stand, those who diss my family, Nagoya
These scales ain’t fair; my determination’s unwavering

---(Bad Ass Temple)---
Bounce, bounce, make it bounce, make it bounce, bounce
Bad Ass Temple shakes the stage and makes it bounce, bounce

---(Dotonbori Divers)---
Clap your hands everybody

---(Haru Takanashi)---
Dotonbori Divers writing out our own story

---(Hirotaka Watamoto)---
We three are always fresh ‘n rockin’

---(Ryotaro Akanegakubo)---
Keep on movin’ and groovin’

---(Haru Takanashi)---
Hirorin, Ryota, you’re the funny men

---(Hirotaka Watamoto & Ryotaro Akanegakubo)---
And Haru, you’re the straight man, okay?

---(Haru Takanashi)---
Nothing could scare us
We’re the perfect combination

---(Hirotaka Watamoto)---
We’re gonna turn the world topsy-turvy

---(Ryotaro Akanegakubo)---
Next stop--revolution

---(Dotonbori Divers)---
Bounce, bounce, make it bounce, make it bounce, bounce
Dotonbori Diver shakes the stage and makes it bounce, bounce

---(Danjo Oogumo)---
From the heavens descends a spider's thread
Now let us fight together before the gods
This twisted world is crumbling; let us destroy it without mercy
If you believe not, you’ll find no salvation within my Itonokai

(Welcome to the division, a line-up full of icons)

---(Kuko Harai)---
Shake up this whole country

---(Sasara Nurude)---
Keep your eyes on this trio

---(Jakurai Jinguji)---
Set Babylon aflame

---(Ramuda Amemura)---
A totally shocking truth

---(Samatoki Aohitsugi)---
Dangerous ammunition for days

---(Ichiro Yamada)---
We’ll set this place on fire

---(All)---
Hypnosis Mic, activated
It resounds--bang a gong
Unrivaled rhyme and flow
A last chapter for this revolt of words
(Battle of Pride)

Let’s start this showtime
Sparks flying in this fight
Do not cross, out of control
We’re locking it down
Bounce, bounce, make it bounce
Make it bounce, bounce
Scorching the floor with one verse
(Battle of Pride)

Proving we’re alive
No way we’re afraid
Writing our own legend
We’re snagging our glory here
Bounce bounce make it bounce
Make it bounce bounce
Bet your everything and survive

The rule is just to
Bounce bounce bounce
It’s kill or be killed so
Bounce bounce bounce
Battle of Pride

The rule is just to
Bounce bounce bounce
Now, let’s settle the score
Bounce bounce bounce
Battle of Pride
