CHAI - The band challenging norms with NEO Kawaii - Lyric Translation

CHAI

the all woman band from Nagoya, Aichi, Japan challenging the norm with NEO Kawaii

CHAI recently released their second album Punk which I’d recommend everyone listen to if they like alt rock/dance/electronic/fun.

In addition to the general recommendation I am wondering if anyone would be interested in translating lyrics with me?

The first track on the album is Choose Go!

Here are the full lyrics! I’ll isolate the lines with Japanese and remove repeated lines in the comments so it’s easier to discuss.

Hey! do you know what’s the reason?
強気にステップふめるわけは
Hey! do you know what’s the reason?
無敵にスマイルできるわけは

落ちこんでは cry and cry して
部屋のすみで rock and roll なんて
このままでは not OK!
さーて 抜けださなきゃ don’t stay

To make, to make me change!
To make I am!
To make me いつもと変わるチャンス!

To make me change!
To make I am!
To make me かまわず say change!
See you bad mind!

Choose go! ふるい mind get out
オーラ着替えて look me! もっと自由に
