"I'm being controlled all the way to my fingertips....." 1582  


I woke up from a nap with Kame's 1582 playing in my head: I would like to think I was dreaming of him  - too back I can't remember...
... 1582 is one of my favourite songs EVER... based on the music, the colourful/historical performances and the soulful/passionate singing in Kame's voice... but, I've never looked up the historically motivated lyrics until now....


The historical background can be found here: kattun-hyphens

I'm being controlled all the way to my fingertips
Becoming insanely numb
Inside my head I'm breaking down
Where am I now and why?
The light before my eyes disappears
Permanently sleeping, even death

Tempting complaints
Those scarlet lips

The pounding of my numbing heart becomes disrupted
Stain yourself by drowning in that blood

Eyes facing neverending lands
What do they reflect?
Please please hold me in those hands


As the hands of the clock overlap
I contemplate my inner ways
I touch my hands to my chest and wish
That I will never ever wake up
Love...

Even this heart littered with wounds
Is healed by watching you
It's not about desire
I know this even unconsciously

The drug that heals my wound feels good
We're not going anywhere tomorrow
Do you hate that?

Stain yourself by drowning in that blood

The dream and scattered stars
Which I saw with you day after day
I touch my hands to my chest and wish
That I please please won't wake up

What is this tender feeling?
It changes colour every second
Forever and ever hold me in those hands with love


Tempting complaints
Heal the wound

Eyes facing neverending lands
What do they reflect?
Please please hold me in those hands


As the hands of the clock overlap
I contemplate my inner ways
I touch my hands to my chest and wish
That I will never ever wake up

The dream and scattered stars
Which I saw with you day after day
I touch my hands to my chest and wish
That I please please won't wake up

What is this tender feeling?
It changes colour every second
Forever and ever hold me in those hands with love

Un. read it... I knew about the historical connection but never did much digging... so thank you for the link ><

I added it to the post...

it's really a beautiful song and moreso because Kame wrote it *-*

"1582" is also one of my favorite songs. And the performance that Kame did for this song on "Break the Records" concert is the best performance I've ever seen by now. It was amazing! <3

About the lyrics, I don't know if you know, but they have a historical connection. For more details you can check this: http://www.kattun-hyphens.com/1582.html.

yeah... I remember the first time I saw the performance, I was completely mesmerized by the beauty and precision in Kame's presentation... and it's even more beautiful because Kame wrote it himself... so a whole new meaning is added >v<

I knew about it's historical connection but never did much digging, but Alice had linked me earlier the kattunhyphen's website, so I linked it to this post so others may be informed as ><

Thank you dear....

enjoy your weekend *-*

You're welcome! ^^

I've seen Alice's comment after I posted my comment. She was faster than me, 'cause when I started writing my comment she didn't posted hers yet :D But... better more than none ^^
gensou_alice on November 13th, 2011 02:59 am (UTC)
Yay! The site is linked~~
*feels happy someone else liked the backstory*
myraxmyrax on November 13th, 2011 03:39 pm (UTC)
Of course I liked it! And I'm sure I'm not the only one (~.^)
Thank you for writing it! If you wouldn't have wrote it there, I wouldn't have had any idea about the historical meaning of this song.

Yeah, I'm now inspired to research the history / motivation behind his other songs...

the song is very romantic though... never mind it's kinda angsy >

This is also one of my most favourite songs <3
So sexy and romantic and mysterious all in one! <3

Re: "I'm being controlled all the way to my fingertips....." 1582
Nope, it's still not turned up in the post for me yet ='[
But I was there the day before it was filmed so I already had a head start on some people xD

Re: "I'm being controlled all the way to my fingertips....." 1582
oh wow! then being there is sure to be greater than watching on a DVD XD

Re: "I'm being controlled all the way to my fingertips....." 1582
Aye so was!!!
My DVD finally turned out but haven't watched it yet and my friend said she'd watch it with me and I'm like COME ON! I MUST SEE! xD

I was, and still am, hypnotized with that song. And it took me a while but somehow I did realized in the end that song has historical background. Unfortunately my Japanese is not so good, I'm still learning so I have to "lean on" translations.
Btw, I can't open this link www.kattun-hyphens.com/1582.html :(, I'm getting error page :(

"I'm being controlled all the way to my fingertips....." 1582
oh yes 1582 is a gorgeous song XD

it's even lovelier being that Kame wrote it :-)

Btw, I can't open this link www.kattun-hyphens.com/1582.html

that's because the owner of the website may have deleted it.

Re: "I'm being controlled all the way to my fingertips....." 1582
Oh, thank you.
Yeah I know that Kame-chan wrote it ^_^.

Then can I ask question here? I can't figure out is this song about Nobunaga, Ranmaru or both of them? Sorry for asking but I really want to know *blush*
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on November 27th, 2012 12:12 am (UTC)
Re: "I'm being controlled all the way to my fingertips....." 1582
from what I've read, I think it's about the two of them being lovers >.<
Do a google search... chances are you'll find the full story XD
sullesssulless on November 27th, 2012 12:18 am (UTC)
Re: "I'm being controlled all the way to my fingertips....." 1582
Oh I know the story about them very well...I was thinking more in a line about their death *blush*. Or should I say...I understood that song is about Ranmaru following Nobunaga in death cos of his love...

But like I sad, my Japanese is very week at this point so myb I misunderstood the true meaning.

Thank you so much ^_^
