自由への目醒め
Awake to Freedom

Title: 自由への目醒め (Jiyuu he no mezame)

Artist: 六弦アリス (Rokugen Alice)
Album: 不思議の国の音哲樂 悪の目醒め

Requested by Eiki. Sorry for the long wait~
Did i ever mention i hate those square brackets? Also, thanks to Tegamin for the help.

And this song… ahh, the usual “good and evil“-thing. personally i think it’s about two people personificating those two aspects (and strangely, “evil” doesn’t seem too evil here).

*「二人は似て 非なるものだ」: this is actually a quote (thus the brackets!). 非なるものだ literally means “turning evil”, however “evil” sounds as if somebody else called them that
*人 は一人を善とし, 一人を悪 とした: not sure about this. In my interpretation, one of the two represents “good” the other one “evil” (does that make sense to you?)
*心を奪い: also “enchant”, “enrapture”, “entrance” etc.
*それ は美しい か? : literally “is that beautiful?”
*君は誰だ? : lit. “who are you?”, what  i think is meant is rather “who will you be then?”


眠れ, 眠れ , この 素晴らしい世界 に を 別れして
眠れ, 眠れ , この 悪夢 の ような日々に「さようなら」
nemure, nemure, kono subarashii sekai ni wo wakare shite
nemure, nemure, kono akumu no you na hibi ni sayonara

now sleep, sleep, and bid farewell to this magnificent world
now sleep, sleep, and say goodbye to this nightmare-like days

不 か不幸か 運命の双子
「二人は似て 非なるものだ」
区別の 付かない二人だから
人 は一人を善とし, 一人を悪 とした
ko ka fukou ka unmei no futago
futari wa nite hi naru mono da
kubetsu no tsukanai futari dakara
hito wa hitori wo zen to shi, hitori wo aku to shita

is it fortune or misfortune for us fateful two
we are alike, you and me, corrupting
therefore we are indistinguishable
one of them alone does good, one alone did evil

それ は 二人の運命を分ち, 世界 に悲劇を生んだ
理解できない ものは皆, 多勢で「 悪」と弾圧した
sore wa futari no unmei wo wakachi, sekai ni higeki wo unda
rikai dekinai mono wa mina, tazei de aku to dan’atsu shita

that devides our shared destiny, giving birth to tragedy in this world
all the things one cannot understand were countless evil and oppression

誰か の 同意を得る 為, 美徳 にすがり
意に添わぬ者の 心を奪い
同じ色に染まる 事を余儀なくされる
それ は美しい か?
dareka no doi wo eru tame, bitoku ni sugari
i ni sowanu mono no kokoro wo ubai
onaji iro ni somaru koto wo yogi naku sareru
sore wa utsukushii ka?

to obtain someone’s consent, just hold onto virtue
what doesn‘t cross one’s mind will captivate the heart
and it will inevitably be stained with the same colour
wouldn’t that be beautiful?

人間らしさ と は何だ?  「 信念を  持つこと」
信念と は何だ?            「自分 を信じること」
ningenrashisa to wa nanda? shinnen wo motsu koto
shinnen to wa nanda? jibun wo shinjiru koto

what is that, ‘humanity‘?  “believing in something“
what is that, ‘believing‘?   “having faith in yourself“

君が君らしくいられる世界 には美徳も悪徳も無い
ただそこに は 君の 過去, 現在, 未来があるだけだ
だから 自由に 生きて, その存在を 証明しろ, 君は誰だ?
kimi ga kimi rashiku irareru sekai ni wa bitoku mo akutoku mo nai
tada soko ni wa kimi no kako, genzai, mirai ga aru dake da
dakara jiyuu ni ikite, sono sonzai wo shomei shiro , kimi wa dare da?

in a world where you can remain the way you are, there’s neither virtue nor vice
there is only your past, your present life and your future, that is all
that’s why, live in freedom and prove your existence; who will you be then?

他の誰か の為じゃなく , 他でもない 君の為に
君が 今まで生きて来たのは, 君が幸せになる為だろう
hoka no dareka no tame ja naku , hoka demo nai kimi no tame ni
kimi ga ima made ikite kita no wa, kimi ga shiawase ni naru tame darou

this is not for anybody else’s sake, it is for no one other than yourself
the fact that you have lived until now means that it’s all for your happiness

誰か の 同意を得る 為, 美徳 にすがり
意に添わぬ者の 心を奪い
同じ色に染まる 事ことを余儀なくされる
それ は誰かの為だ?
dareka no doi wo eru tame bitoku ni sugari
i ni sowanu mono no kokoro wo ubai
onaji iro ni somaru koto wo yogi naku sareru
sore wa dare no tame da?

to obtain someone’s consent, just hold onto virtue
what doesn‘t cross one’s mind will captivate the heart
it will inevitably be stained with the same colour
for whose sake is all that?

眠れ, 眠れ , この 素晴らしい世界 に を 別れして
眠れ, 眠れ , この悪夢は 「また明日」 と嘲笑う
nemure, nemure, kono subarashii sekai ni wo wakare shite
nemure, nemure, kono akumu wa mata ashita to azawarau

so sleep, sleep, and bid farewell to this magnificent world
so sleep, sleep, and sneer “see you tomorrow“ at this nightmare
