For a while I've been making English "translations" of the lyrics to a bunch of the tracks from Nier: Gestalt/Replicant and Nier: Automata - personal interpretations of each of the tracks, presented by way of an imagined translation convention for their (ostensibly nonsensical) lyrics. Now I've got them collected together here - how 'bout that?
As I choose not to use AO3's provided ratings options, note - while nothing is graphically described by my "translations", the Nier/Drakengard series does deal in heavy themes and I do attempt to broach those heavy themes in my "translations."
Note that the transcriptions of the original lyrics of each track come from the pages for each track from lyrics.wikia.com, sometimes with my own personal edits made to those transcriptions. Unfortunately, I’m clueless as to the authorship of each of the original transcriptions. Also note that certain tracks come with personal notes attached to my “translations.” Some of these notes comprise commentary I’ve imagined for the in-universe histories and linguistics of the music being “translated,” while some of them comprise discussion of the choices I’ve made for my “translations” or out-of-universe discussion of the tracks themselves.
