キャプテン・ムラサ (Captain Murasa), Minamitsu Murasa’s Theme

Nothing much to say this time ~ Always liked Murasa’s Theme a lot.
(i’ve been awfully quiet lately, haven’t i?)

*overall, this song lacks personal pronouns…yay ._.
*目を伏せて花を: no idea why it’s “flowers” (isn’t the song set on the sea?)
*沈んだ船と魂とその影の上: i couldn’t translate this better, but the “shadow(s)” are those of the souls (the people on the ship, who probably sunk with it) and of the ship itself. hope this makes sense!
*皆が指差す先へ: “that direction” – where the speaker points at (stanza above)


ずっと夢を見ていたんだ
悲しい夢だったんだ
zutto yume wo mite itanda
kanashii yume dattanda

i have been dreaming all this time
what a sad dream it was

嵐の中に一つ一つずつ沈んでゆく大事なもの
目を伏せて花を
arashi no naka ni hitotsu hitotsu zutsu shizunde yuku daiji na mono
me wo fusete hana wo

inside this storm, everything precious to me is slowly sinking, one by one
i face away from these flowers

舵を切って帆を張っていざ指差す先へ
雲裂いて風読んで進むんだ
手を振って別れていつかまた会おう
夢から覚める前に
kaji wo kitte ho wo hatte iza yubisasu saki he
kumo saite kaze yonde susumunda
te wo futte wakarete itsuka mata aou
yume kara sameru mae ni

set sail and change the course to where my finger points at
cut up the clouds, scream into the wind and move on
wave goodbye and let’s meet again one day
before i’ll wake from my dream

嵐の中で一つ一つずつ見つけてゆく大事なもの
目を開けて花を
arashi no naka de hitotsu hitotsu zutsu mitsukete yuku daiji na mono
me wo akete hana wo

inside this storm, i will find again what’s important to me, one by one
and open my eyes to these flowers

舵を切って帆を張っていざ指差す先へ
雲裂いて風読んで進むんだ
手を振って別れてさよならしよう
夢から覚めるように
kaji wo kitte ho wo hatte iza yubisasu saki he
kumo saite kaze yonde susumunda
te wo futte wakarete sayonara shiyou
yume kara sameru you ni

set sail and change the course to where my finger points at
cut up the clouds, scream into the wind and move on
wave goodbye, let’s bid our farewell
so that we can wake from this dream

沈んだ船と魂とその影の上
踏み越えて乗り越えて進むんだ
どんな嵐も味方に変えてさ
皆が指差す先へ
shizunda fune to tamashii to sono kage no ue
fumikoete norikoete susumunda
donna arashi mo mikata ni kaete sa
mina ga yubisasu saki he

a shadow above the sinking ship and the souls
overcome, surpass it and then move forward
whatever storm there is, turn it into your ally
now, everyone, head for that direction!

my past is always lonely

nobody
knows about my memories
and slowly
they begin to fade away

霧を

just as if
everything’s fogbound
it is absorbed into my sight

i left behind
even what’s precious to me
i’m starting to forget
that is why i will…

ひとり

祈り続けるよ
さよならをした
日々に
hitori
tooi kono basho de

all alone
in this faraway place
i keep on praying for
the days i bid my
farewell to

やがて
星たちが昇り
落ちて流れてく
祈り捧げた
日々も
yagate
hoshitachi ga nobori

soon
the stars will rise
and fall, be swept away
even the days i said
my prayers

the time continues going by
and always leaves me behind

(it seems to be swallowed for deep fog, and i am fierce)

stop right now,
no longer make me feel lonely
but sometime;
i should be able to meet you

差し伸べられた手をとって
sashinoberareta te wo totte

i take the hand that reached out to me

明日を語ることも
隣で笑うことも
できる人達に出会えたなら
振り向いて手を振れるはず
asu wo kataru koto mo
tonari de warau koto mo
dekiru hitotachi ni deaeta nara
furimuite te wo fureru hazu

even talking about tomorrow
even laughing side by side
perhaps if i meet people who are able to,
if i turn around, our hands should touch

今も
遠いこの場所で
祈り続けてる
此処で出会えた
日々に
ima mo
tooi kono basho de
inoritsuzuketeru

even now
in this faraway place
i keep on praying for
the days we have met
right here

いつか
思い出しながら
笑えるはずだよ
さよならをした
日々も

one day
while thinking back
i should be able to laugh
about those days i bid my
farewell to

i feel so productive these days, it’s awesome.
And again, i have troubles finding a picture for this, sorry~

*カタはつかないぜ: i have not a single clue why it says カタ (kata) in katakana instead of hiragana, that’s why i had to guess where it derives from. i went with 過多 since it fits the content.
*しかない: this also made me wonder; しか…ない (shika…nai) means “only/ just etc”while しかない is “not having a choice” (see also last phrase of the lyrics)
*微笑む神: lit. “a laughing god”
*君の正義を証明して くれる人は現れない: i think して くれる belongs together


決まりきった選択肢
どうせ同じさ
セオリーはいつだって
僕らを裏切っていく
kimarikitta sentakushi
douse onaji sa
seorii wa itsu datte
bokura wo uragitte yuku

the choices we made
were always the same in the end
and our theory has always
come to betray us somehow

感情論程度ではカタはつかないぜ
望む未来があるなら
犠牲と覚悟が必要だ
kanjouron teido dewa kata wa tsukanai ze
nozomu mirai ga aru nara
gisei to kakugo ga hitsuyou da

i cannot use emotional arguments excessively, so
if the desired future does exist
sacrifice and determination are inevitable

笑えないけど
君もそう思うだろう?
そんなもんさ
waraenai kedo
kimi mo sou omou darou?
sonna mon sa

you’re not smiling but
don’t you think the same?
about those things

夢や希望や幻想だけじゃ
確度が一つも足りやしない
甘えも緩さも親愛も
勝者のぜいたく品でしかない
yume ya kibou ya gensou dake ja
kakudo ga hitotsu mo tari yashinai
amae mo yurusa mo shin’ai mo
shousha no zeitakuhin de shika nai

dreams and hopes are mere illusions
my determination alone is not enough
overreliance, forgiveness, affection
are not the luxury of a winner alone

全てを終えてしまうまでは
何も知らないほうがいい
途中経過には意味がない
最後が一番大事だからさ
subete wo oeteshimau made wa
nani mo shiranai hou ga ii
tochuu keika ni wa imi ga nai
saigo ga ichiban daiji dakara sa

until i have brought everything to a close
i’m better off not knowing anything
even the current process doesn’t matter
because the end is most important

リスクを愛せない奴に
微笑む神はいない
あいつら多分だけど
かなり性格悪いぜ
risuku wo aisenai yatsu ni
hohoemu kami wa inai
aitsura tabun dakedo
kanari seikaku warui ze

for those who don’t love the risk
there’s no benevolent god
but they probably have
a pretty fucked up personality

優しさで現状は動かない
yasashisa de genjou wa ugokanai

kindness will not change the situation we’re in

愛した世界 信じた未来
僕に必要なものではない
殺傷力さえあれば
大体は上手くいくことが多い
全てを救うなんて今すぐ
諦めたほうがいいんじゃない?
正しいってことはいつでも
大体一番残酷だからさ
aishita sekai shinjita mirai
boku ni hitsuyou na mono dewa nai
sasshou ryoku sae areba
daitai wa umaku iku koto ga ooi
subete wo sukuu nante ima sugu
akirameta hou ga ii n ja nai?
tadashii tte koto wa itsu demo
daitai ichiban zankoku dakara sa

the world i loved, the future i believed in
to me, there‘s no need for them anymore
even if i had the power to kill
on the whole, it often went well
but saving everything right now…
shouldn’t we just give it up?
because the “right“ things are
always the cruelest ones

確実に一手ずつ積み上げろ
手順を守る奴を嘲笑え
君の正義を証明して
くれる人は現れない
kakujitsu ni itte zutsu tsumiagero
tejun wo mamoru yatsu wo warae
kimi no seigi wo shoumei shite
kureru hito wa arawarenai

i rebuild my certainty one-handedly
while laughing at the guy keeping order
you don’t appear as a person who
could prove his justice to me

全ての現実には
慣性というものが働く
動き出したものはすぐには
止まれないものなんだ
くだらないものが残っていく
理由なんてたったそれだけ
大層なストーリーなんて
この程度のものでしかないからさ
subete no genjitsu ni wa
kansei toiu mono ga hataraku
ugokidashita mono wa sugu ni wa
tomarenai mono nanda
kudaranai mono ga nokotte iku
riyuu nante tatta sore dake
taisou na sutoorii nante
kono teido no mono de shika nai kara sa

the entire reality acts as
something called inertia
all of the things that moved have
suddenly become unstoppable
now the boring things will remain
and that‘s the only reason there is
because of this exaggerated story
we don’t have a choice with things on this scale

人恋し神様 ~ Romantic Fall, 稲田姫様に叱られるから, Minoriko Aki’s Theme

Requested by Eiki.
Well i don’t even know what to say, that’s why i’m greeting Simon, i know you read this :D
Fastest transcription i ever did, though i’m rather lazy ~
Oh and also a bit liberal this time (and sloppy). Hope that’s alright nevertheless.

*気付いて: the lack of personal pronouns is really annoying sometimes….
*また秋を少し燃やして: i know (aki) is in fact “fall (autumn)” but i think this refers to the burning leaves from first stanza


落ちた葉 を集めて
一つ火を灯す
ochita ha wo atsumete
hitotsu hi wo tomosu

i gather the fallen leaves
and light a single fire

こんな小さな火じゃ
暖まるはずもないのは解っていた
konna chiisana hi jya
atatamaru hazu mo nai no wa wakatteita

i know that this small fire
will probably not be enough to warm us up

ハローハロー
この煙はどこまで昇ってく?
haro haro
kono kemuri wa doko made nobotteku?

hello hello
how high into the air will this smoke soar?

ハローハロー
気付いて私たちはここにいる
haro haro
kizuite watashitachi wa koko ni iru

hello hello
realizing that we are here right now

また強く北風が吹いて
葉を散らしてしまうの
mata tsuyoku kitakaze ga fuite
ha wo chirashite shimau no

again, the northwind blows strongly
scattering the leaves

そんな当たり前の事が
少しだけ寂しかった
sonna atarimae no koto ga
sukoshi dake samishikatta

that matter of course was
just a little saddening for me

ハローハロー
すぐそこまで近づいているから
haro haro
sugu soko made chikazuite iru kara

hello hello
because we‘re moving closer to over there

ハローハロー
もう一度だけ火を灯させて
haro haro
mou ichido dake hi wo tomosasete

hello hello
let me light the fire just one more time

また強く北風が吹いて
葉を散らしてしまえば
mata tsuyoku kitakaze ga fuite
ha wo chirashite shimaeba

again, the northwind blows strongly
while it scatters the leaves

そんな当たり前の事で
今更涙する
sonna atarimae no koto de
imasara namida suru

and that matter of course makes
me shed tears even now

また秋を少し燃やして
体を 暖めてく
mata aki wo sukoshi moyashite
karada wo atatameteku

just a little, set fall aflame once more
so that we can warm our bodies

冬など来たければ良いと
言葉も消えていった
fuyu nado kitakereba ii to
kotoba mo kiete itta

when winter has come, it’s alright
our words will already be gone by then

Album:
GATE~それは暁のように~
Original Arrangement

Dedicated to a very special person.
I don’t really know which album this is from, i was told it came with the opening of GATE.
Anyways if someone has the full version of this song pleeeaaase send it to me, couldn’t find it anywhere.
Also, a rather liberal translation this time but i’m quite happy with it.

*意味ないよ 変えるんだ: change this a little bit, changed 変えるんだ (go back) into “restore”
*一手で決める覚悟で: i can’t say for sure whether 一手 really means “hand” in this case. anyhow the message stays the same
*
苦くも辛くもない勝利: is it “a close victory” in english? i actually don’t know how to say it
*かませ: i just assume it derives from (kamasu)
* 鮮やかな: lit. “brilliant”


こっからここまでが正しいって誰かが決めたって
見てろ、偉くも凄くもないと今から証明するから
立てろフラッグを 掲げよう理想と信条を
拘ることさ 我儘に決めていくほうがずっと楽しいから
kokkara koko made ga tadashii tte dareka ga kimeta tte
mitero, eraku mo sugoku mo nai to ima kara shoumei suru kara
tatero furaggu wo kakageyou risou to shinjou wo
kodawaru koto sa wagamama ni kimete iku hou ga zutto tanoshii kara

from here to here, someone has just decided what’s right
look, i’ll prove to you right now that it’s neither great nor brilliant
stand up, i’ll hoist my flag along with my ideals and beliefs
because it’s much more fun being obsessed with the egoism i choose

負けないような生き方もあるって?
言ってろ、希望も野望もないって聞こえるぜ
変わっていくのを待つなんて
意味ないよ 変えるんだ
流れを読め最初の一手で決める覚悟で
makenai youna ikikata mo aru tte?
ittero, kibou mo yabou mo nai tte kikoeru ze
kawatte iku no wo matsu nante
imi nai yo kaerunda
nagare wo yome saisho no itte de kimeru kakugo de

is there a way of life that won’t make me lose?
i tell you, it doesn’t sound like ‘hope’ or ‘ambition’
i’m still waiting for a change
i want to restore its meaning
reading the flow, i clench my fist and make up my mind

この轟音にいっそ我を失ってしまえよ
勝ち上がっていく人生に
意味なんてあるかわからない?
この轟音に我を失ってしまえたら
負けるよりはマシだって進めるさ
kono gouon ni isso ware wo ushinatte shimae yo
kachi agatte iku jinsei ni
imi nante aru ka wakaranai?
kono gouon ni ware wo ushinatte shimaetara
makeru yori wa mashi datte susumeru sa

i would rather lose myself inside this roar
the life that wins and rises
is meaningful, don’t you know?
if i came to lose myself in this roar then
even moving on is better than giving up

どっから損だって切り捨てようとしたって構わない
行けよ、苦くも辛くもない勝利を舐めてりゃいいだろ
かませブラフを 賭けよう情熱も時間も全部
信じることさ 自分で選んだ 根拠なんていらない
dokkara son datte kirisuteyou to shitatte kamawanai
ike yo, nigaku mo karaku mo nai shouri wo nameterya ii daro
kamase burafu wo kakeyou jounetsu mo jikan mo zenbu
shinjiru koto sa jibun de eranda konkyo nante iranai

from somewhere , even if i threw away my loss, i don’t care
go ahead, it’s alright, taste a victory that’s neither bitter nor close
smash the bluff you bet on, your passion, your time, everything
i myself chose to believe therefore i don’t need any reason

求めないようにって言い聞かせて注げない
そんなのを愛なんて呼べないだろう
motomenai you ni tte iikikasete sosogenai
son’na no wo ai nante yobenai darou

don’t flood me with persuasions like “you don’t even want it“
i don’t think we could possibly call that “love“

この轟音にいっそ我を失ってしまえよ
無くしていくだけの人生に
意味なんてあるかわからない?
この轟音に我を失ってしまえたら
奪うよりはマシだって笑えるさ
kono gouon ni isso ware wo ushinatte shimae yo
nakushite iku dake no jinsei ni
imi nante aru ka wakaranai?
Kono gouon ni ware wo ushinatte shimaetara
ubau yori wa mashi datte waraeru sa

i would rather lose myself inside this roar
the one life that loses everything,
is meaningful, don’t you know?
if i came to lose myself in this roar then
even laughing it off is better than being deprived

スタートの合図を気にしない君を誰かが笑ったって
ストップの声が聞こえないその集中力を叱られたっていいさ
飛び込んで掴むんだ 鮮やかなイメージを
さあ「ここから世界が始まっていく」って
sutaato no aizu wo kinishinai kimi wo dareka ga waratta tte
sutoppu no koe ga kikoenai sono shuuchuu ryoku wo shikarareta tte ii sa
tobikonde tsukamunda azayakana imeeji wo
saa ‘koko kara sekai ga hajimatte iku’ tte

‘nevermind the start signal‘ someone said while smiling at you
but i can‘t hear the voice telling me to stop, even if my concentration was scolded
so i start flying and try to grasp the fleeting images
now, i can say “the world starts right here and now“

Requested by Eiki.
I’m sorry this took so long, had some personal problems to face…
Anyways, i’m not 100% satisfied with this translation, please feel free to complain anytime.

* 駆け出す速度が早いほどに感じる季節は 花咲く丘まで続いてる: it bugs me that the english translation of this phrase turned out so short, i’ll probably fix this as soon as i can
*ちゃい: this “chai” got me irritated, seems to belong to the verb somehow
*水しぶきあげてはきらめいて: i don’t actually know whether あげて refers to 水しぶき
*飛び越え: replaced “jumping” with “throbbing” (since i could not use it as “cross” here)


 

溶け出しちゃいそうなほどの日差し浴びて出かけよう
昨日まで泣いてたこと忘れたら?
駆け出す速度が早いほどに感じる季節は 花咲く丘まで続いてる

let‘s go out and bathe in the sunshine that seems to melt us away
What if you just forget that you were crying until yesterday?
running at a great speed, i can feel how springtime keeps blossoming even the hills, reaching

dancing through the sky in the cycle of seasons, petals of rain illuminate you
fluttering just like the sparkling dress you wore
the bursting stars cut across the clouds and tint the night sky golden
if i gather all the pieces, i’m sure it will shake this heart of mine…

in the direction my finger points to lies a door we haven’t seen before
and yet, nobody knows a way to open it, but
if you can call up even a bit of courage, let us head straight for it!
because i feel that something is waiting for us, believe myself

you and me, looking into each other’s eyes
in my heart, reflected in its depths
for your dream  i will try to see through your heart, so just follow me

it might be better if i just mess it all up
completely tricky, i remember the laughter
i don’t feel like doing something boring

無駄なことってのは 生命の冗長性さ
不必要でも安易に切り捨ててはいけない
なんて言い訳を真に受けるんじゃないぜ
半分は本当なんだけど
muda na koto tte no wa seimei no jouchousei sa
fuhitsuyou demo an’i ni kirisutete wa ikenai
nante iiwake wo maniukerun ja nai ze
hanbun wa hontou nanda kedo

useless things are life’s redundancy
it’s unnecessary but i can’t throw away my carelessness
and i can’t take your excuses seriously anymore
because only half of them are true

適当な事を言ってるだけで
気が晴れるもんさ
tekitou na koto wo itteru dake de
ki ga hareru mon sa

only saying reasonable things
is what makes me liven up

真剣なDistance 無意味なpapercut
安心させるようじゃまだ駄目だね
完璧なTricky どうでもいいね
存在意義にも色々あるのさ
shinken na Distance muimi na papercut
anshin saseru you ja mada dame da ne
kanpeki na Tricky dou demo ii ne
sonzai igi ni mo iroiro aru no sa

the serious distance, a meaningless papercut
it’s way too early to rest at ease just yet
absolutely tricky, but i don’t give a damn
my raison d’être is versatile after all

信用がないくらいは別にいい
大切な事を忘れないように
shinyou ga nai kurai wa betsu ni ii
taisetsu na koto wo wasurenai you ni

i don’t have much trust in you, but whatever
i cannot lose sight of what’s important to me

逆説のreliance 反証のreliable
重ね合わせている猫のように
完全なTricky 後出しでもいいさ
意味なんて分からなくてもいい
最初から目的すらないから
gyakusetsu no reliance hanshou no reliable
kasaneawasete iru neko no you ni
kanzen na Tricky atodashi demo ii sa
imi nante wakaranakute mo ii
saisho kara mokuteki suranai kara

paradox reliance, counter-evidence reliable
it is blending in just like a cat
completely tricky, a late explanation but that’s okay
it’s fine even if you don’t understand its meaning
because it didn’t have a purpose from the beginning

indigo

indigo

Title: インディゴ (indigo)
Circle: 岸田教団 & THE明星ロケッツ
Arrange: 岸田 (Kishida) , ichigo
Vocal: ichigo
Album: hack/SLASH
Original Arrangement

indigo is a purplish-blue colour, for those who don’t know. couldn’t decide whether to choose a picture that fits with the title or the lyrics. The translation isn’t too literal this time, maybe a bit sloppy. sorry about that.

*満たない月: literally “the not waxing moon”
* 道連れ: i don’t think “companion” is literally meant here
*月見ルように想えたなら: i totally have no clue if i got this right
*君なんかって離れる理由を探すのに: lack of pronouns, so it could be either ” a reason for you to leave me” or “a reason to leave you/ to break up”


いのちの密度を測るように愛してた
寄り添えない角度で傷つくのに
水面に揺られて沈む満たない月が
ふたりを照らして
inochi no mitsudo wo hakaru you ni aishiteta
yorisoenai kakudo de kizutsuku no ni
minamo ni yurarete shizumu mitanai tsuki ga
futari wo terashite

i loved you enough to measure the weight of life
though i did not cling to my position, i got hurt
swaying on the water surface and sinking, the waning moon
shines on the both of us

遠くの星空届かない距離にまで
美しくもない饗に酔って道連れ
水面に揺られて沈む満たない月に
片思いしてよぼくのせいにして
tooku no hoshizora todokanai kyori ni made
utsukushiku mo nai kyou ni yotte michidzure
minamo ni yurarete shizumu mitanai tsuki ni
kataomoi shite yo boku no sei ni shite

not reaching far into the distance of this starry sky
a companion that intoxicates me on this distasteful banquet
swaying on the water surface and sinking, to the waning moon
my unrequited love, i am to blame

間違いばかり選びつづけている
泣きたい夜に
machigai bakari erabi tsudzukete iru
nakitai yoru ni

i only keep chosing what mistakes to make
at night when i want to cry

月見ルように想えたなら
答えなんていらないって言えたはずさ
手を離して落ちる夢は
君の指に染みついた切なく深い青
tsukimiru you ni omoetanara
kotae nante iranai tte ieta hazu sa
te wo hanashite ochiru yume wa
kimi no yubi ni shimitsuita setsunaku fukai ao

if only i could remember so that i can look at the moon
i should have just said i don’t need an answer
after letting go of your hand, the dream i fall into
ingrained into your finger,a deep, painful indigo

壊れたばかりの欠片で手を切る
眺めるばかりできっと痕になる
kowareta bakari no kakera de te wo kiru
nagameru bakari de kitto ato ni naru

the broken pieces only cut my fingers
just by looking at them, they’ll surely leave scars

君なんかって離れる理由を探すのに
また近づいていく、どうしたらいい?
kimi nanka tte hanareru riyuu wo sagasu no ni
mata chikadzuite iku, doushitara ii?

i’m searching for a reason for you to leave me and yet
we’re becoming closer again, what should i do?

月見ルように想えたなら
今も其処に居ただろうかって笑って
手を伸ばして落ちる夢は
君の指に染み付いた儚く深い青
tsukimiru you ni omoetanara
ima mo sono tokoro ni itadarou ka tte waratte
te wo nobashite ochiru yume wa
kimi no yubi ni shimitsuita hakanaku fukai ao

if i remembered it like watching the moon
why have i been at that place until now, i laugh
after letting go of your hand, the dream i fall into
ingrained into your finger, a deep, endless indigo

Requested by Eiki.
I didn’t know this song before, but so far i really like it! although i am not sure whether i understand its meaning…
Please note that the stanzas connect to each other.

*その名前を呼んでくれよ: actually “scream out that name (for me)”. Doesn’t sound good in my opinion.
*輝いてた気がしてた: “it had been shining” -> i don’t know what “it” refers to in this case, maybe some undefined object sparkling in the dark?
* 気づけば: “if you noticed”-> i think it refers to the shining (see above)
*地べた這いつくばって: also “i crawl on my knees”, “i sink to the ground”
*日は暮れてしまう: means that the day will soon be over, so it’s too late for the speaker to start again
*過去に置いていくよ: “leave it in the past”

Lyrics: Megane (メガネ)
Arrange: Megane (メガネ)
Vocal: 556t
聖徳伝説 ~ True Administrator (Toyosatomimi no Miko’s Theme), Reitaisai 12

I simply love this song, it’s very calming and the lyrics are beautiful.

*ふざけた: this could also mean “play” (ふざける), but somehow i’m never content with that word. not sure about the connotation here.
*全て壊れればいい: also “it’s alright to break everything”
*奈落の底へ: is “abyss”, but 奈落 also means “hell”
*とこの上ない: also “supreme”, “ultimate”


答えの見えてる
複雑怪奇な
ふざけた迷路も
つまらないことこの上ないわ
kotae no mieteru
fukuzatsu kaikina
fuzaketa meiro mo
tsumaranai koto konouenai wa

i can finally see the answer
complex and mysterious
even fooling around in a maze
all trivial things are unrivaled

先の見えない
綱渡りのような
刺激とスリルを
もっと感じさせてよ
saki no mienai
tsunawatari no you na
shigeki to suriru wo
motto kanji sasete yo

i can’t see what lies ahead
it’s like a tightrope walk
let me feel once more
the stimulus and thrill of it

形のない言葉など
全て壊れればいい
私の手のひらの上で踊れ
ハメツワルツ
katachi no nai kotoba nado
subete kowarereba ii
watashi no tenohira no ue de odore
hametsuwarutsu

such things like formless words
it’s better to break all of them
they are dancing on top of my palm
a waltz of destruction

一度失った
この身と御霊が
崩れ落ちる前に
優しい詩をあなたに
ichido ushinatta
kono mi to mitama ga
kuzureochiru mae ni
yasashii uta wo anata ni

i’ve lost them once
my body and soul but
before they crumble away
i’ll sing you this gentle song

時は止まらず
過ぎて
掲げた旗
全て燃やせ
深き奈落の底へ
toki wa tomarazu
sugite
kakageta hata
subete moyase
fukaki naraku no soko he

without ever stopping
time passes
i hoist my flag and
set everything aflame
into the depths of the abyss 

ガラスのような心など
悪魔に渡せばいい
願いは叶うのだろうさ
絶望の淵と引き換えに
garasu no you na kokoro nado
akuma ni wataseba ii
negai wa kanau no darou sa
zetsubou no fuchi to hikikae ni

such a thing like a crystalline heart
i’d rather hand it over to the devil
i wonder if my wishes would be granted
in exchange for a chasm of despair

形のない言葉など
全て壊れればいい
私の手のひらの上で踊れ
katachi no nai kotoba nado
subete kowarereba ii
watashi no tenohira no ue de odore

such things like formless words
it’s better to break all of them
they are dancing on top of my palm

踊れ 永久に
odore towa ni

waltzing for evermore

壊れ イカレ 果てて
ooware ikare hatete

ending up broken and mad

踊れ 踊れ ハメツワルツ
Odore odore hametsuwarutsu

dance, dance the waltz of destruction
