玉姫様 – Tamahime-sama | Jun Togawa Collective



玉姫様 – Tamahime-sama

Once a month, deep within her cell, Tamahime-sama falls into a fit
Her skin is five colors, serpents in her black hair
She can’t hold back her radiating aura
Central nervous system, a movement in the womb
100,000 horsepower of destructive force
Lady Hysteric, Tamahime-sama is going mad

I can no longer see, I can no longer hear
I can’t understand the words you are saying
Abnormal sweating and vomiting
My six senses have frozen over

A mystery, a mystery, once every month
A mystery, a mystery, a mysterious phenomenon

On a red moon night, deep within her cell, Tamahime-sama’s fit continues
Average body temperature of a beast, that glint in her eye is lightning
She can’t hold back the current of blood
Pituitary gland, a movement in the womb
100,000 horsepower of destructive force
Lady Hysteric, Tamahime-sama is going mad

I can no longer see, I can no longer hear
I can’t understand the words you are saying
Abnormal sweating and vomiting
My six senses have frozen over

A mystery, a mystery, once every month
A mystery, a mystery, a mysterious phenomenon

NOTES:

玉 (tama) means ball, and 姫様 (hime-sama) means princess (or lady) so the title would mean Ball Princess or Ball Lady. I’m not sure how this fits into the meaning of the song, so I’ve decided to leave her name in Japanese. Clearly, the song is about a woman’s cycle, and it has been suggested to me that the “tama” here might refer to the eggs that are released during menstruation, but I can’t find any evidence to back this up. If anyone has any insight, let me know.

    I think Tamahime-sama – refers to Lady Moon, which is obviously round)
