東方永夜抄 ~ Imperishable Night
竹取飛翔 ~ Lunatic Princess , Flight of the Bamboo Cutter ~ Lunatic Princess, Kaguya Houraisan’s Theme

Here is the Kishida song i promised. Nothing much to say as always, except that uni is stressing me like hell and ugh, so much work in so little time  -.-
Might take me a while to answer comments or finish requests, sorry about that!

*引き寄せられる: this literally means “to be drawn to sth”, which is probably referring to the water tide/ the crashing waves but “float” (in the water) is shorter so i went with that
*夜光虫: is “yakouchuu”, meaning ~’night light bug’ and officially called noctiluca scintillans (also known as sea sparkle). even though they’re not really bugs, rather some kind of jellyfish that glow in the dark. for a more scientific explanation, please try wikipedia, i’m no expert :D this also means that they are not able to “fly”, but rather drift in the sea


求める先が たとえ暗闇だとしても
明日さえいらない 君がいてくれるなら
motomeru saki ga tatoe kurayami da to shite mo
ashita sae iranai kimi ga ite kureru nara

even if what i’m longing for is complete darkness
i don’t need a tomorrow as long as you’re here with me

夢と呼ぶには 儚いひとしずくだけれど
居場所などいらない 君がいてくれるなら

yume to yobu ni wa hakanai hitoshizuku dakeredo
ibasho nado iranai kimi ga ite kureru nara

if i were to name my dreams, they’re but fleeting droplets
i don’t need a place to belong as long as you’re here with me

転がり堕ちるせめてこの手を
放さないでと願うことも
赦されぬならせめてこの身を
砕かせないで 君の永遠で
korogari ochiru semete kono te wo
hanasanaide to negau koto mo
yurusarenu nara semete kono mi wo
kudakasenaide kimi no towa de

dropping down and falling, at least
please don’t let go of my hand
and if that’s unforgivable, then at least
please don’t let my body break within your eternity

戯れの仕草で 引き寄せられる夜光虫
永遠が欲しいと飛んで
戯れの予感で 引き寄せられる夜光虫
美しき夜空に飛んで
tawamure no shigusa de hikiyoserareru yakouchuu
eien ga hoshii to tonde
tawamure no yokan de hikiyoserareru yakouchuu
utsukushiki yozora ni tonde

with a funny gesture, the noctiluca float up and down
wishing for eternity as they fly
with a funny notion the noctiluca float up and down
drifting into the beautiful night sky

抑圧の先 それが解放だとしても
自由などいらない 君がいてくれるから
yokuatsu no saki sore ga kaihou da to shite mo
jiyuu nado iranai kimi ga ite kurerukara

if the end of oppression means i’ll be liberated
i don’t need freedom as long as you’re here with me

同じ時間を数える日々を
歪んで見てるまぶたの向こう
赦されるならどうかこの身が
朽ち果てるまで ずっと
onaji jikan wo kazoeru hibi wo
yugande miteru mabuta no mukou
yurusareru nara dou ka kono mi ga
kuchihateru made zutto

behind my eyelids, i twistedly see
the days when i counted the same hours over and over
if i can be forgiven then please
stay with me until this body decays

戯れの仕草で 引き寄せられる夜光虫
永遠が欲しいと飛んで
戯れの予感で 引き寄せられる夜光虫
美しき夜空に飛んで
tawamure no shigusa de hikiyoserareru yakouchuu
eien ga hoshii to tonde
tawamure no yokan de hikiyoserareru yakouchuu
utsukushiki yozora ni tonde

with a funny gesture, the noctiluca float up and down
wishing for eternity as they fly
with a funny notion the noctiluca float up and down
drifting into the beautiful night sky

また 夜がはじまる
千年 繰り返し
mata yoru ga hajimaru
sennen kurikaeshi

another night begins
and a thousand years repeat

誓う貴女に 募る想い 捧ぐ貴女に
chikau anata ni tsunoru omoi sasagu anata ni

to you i vow, to you, i give these treasured feelings

i promised this since like, forever? well so here it is, sorry it took so long -.-

*取り残され沈むように : “i start sinking as i was left behind” – well english isn’t my mother language, but the tense sounds wrong here… i’d be glad if someone could tell me how to say it instead
*どうせ誰かがやるしかないのさ : not sure whether i got this right


よく澄んでいて今日も憂鬱だな
日頃の行いは 悪くないはずだ
暗い闇の中 慣れすぎている
それ自体が証明
ろくなモノじゃないな

yoku sunde ite kyou mo yuuutsu da na
higoro no okonai wa warukunai hazu da
kurai yami no naka naresugite iru
sore jitai ga shoumei
rokuna mono ja nai na

it‘s clearing up well, today’s melancholy
my behaviour shouldn’t be this bad
but this deep darkness is just too familiar
that itself is proof enough
it seems rather unpleasant

言い繕っても僕の居場所は
どうせここしかあるはずがない

iitsukurotte mo boku no ibasho ha
douse koko shika aru hazu ga nai

even if i sugarcoat it, in the end
this is not the place i should be

冬の空と夜の空気
冷たさだけ馴染んでいく
あと少しで音が消える
取り残され沈むように

fuyu no sora to yoru no kuuki
tsumetasa dake najinde yuku
ato sukoshi de oto ga kieru
torinokosare shizumu you ni

the winter sky and the night air
i’ll just get used to the coldness
and little by little, the noises disappear
i start sinking as i was left behind

僕はと言えば 風も光も
障害物と認識している
そんな価値観で生きてていいの?
なんて思った ことくらいはあるさ

boku ha to ieba kaze mo hikari mo
shougaibutsu to ninshiki shite iru
sonna kachikan de ikitete ii no?
nante omotta koto kurai wa aru sa

if i were to speak about wind and light;
i’d recognize them as obstacles
is it alright to live with values like that?
that’s more than i thought it was

好きなわけじゃないはずだけど
どうせ誰かがやるしかないのさ

suki na wake ja nai hazu dakedo
douse dareka ga yaru shika nai no sa

there is no way i like doing this but
i don’t have a choice, someone has got to do it

止まる呼吸この瞬間に
世界を掴み精緻を成す
あと少しで今日も終わる
一筋だけ痕を残す

tomaru kokyuu kono shunkan ni
sekai wo tsukami seichi wo nasu
ato sukoshi de kyou mo owaru
hitosuji dake ato wo nokosu

i stop my breath this moment
and try to fathom this world with precision
just a little longer and today will end
leaving but a single mark

言い繕っても僕の居場所は
どうせここしかあるはずがない

iitsukurotte mo boku no ibasho wa
douse koko shika aru hazu ga nai

even if i sugarcoat it, in the end
this is not the place i should be

冬の空と夜の空気
冷たさだけ馴染んでいく
あと少しで音が消える
取り残され沈むように

fuyu no sora to yoru no kuuki
tsumetasa dake najinde yuku
ato sukoshi de oto ga kieru
torinokosare shizumu you ni

the winter sky and the night air
i’ll just get used to the coldness

i start sinking as i was left behind

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

daitai wa umaku iku koto ga ooi
subete wo sukuu nante ima sugu

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kono gouon ni ware wo ushinatte shimaetara

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

‘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“

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

ふたりを照らして

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

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

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

if only i could remember so that i can look at the moon
i should have just said i don’t need an answer

This wasn’t as difficult as expected, just a lot of technical terms.
It’s the Opening of the Anime Strike The Blood. I have actually never watched it though.
NOTICE: This song lyrics have very, very few personal pronouns so i had to add them myself.
Hope they make sense to you!

*銀色の軌跡: “a silvery remnant” -> could be a bullet or the tip of a sword
*特別製: also “special”, but i went for “unusual” (not sure why)
*収束: also “convergence”
*その血に刻む: その血 is actually “that blood” (not the speaker’s own), however due to the lack of personal pronouns i just rearranged this. i know this isn’t 100% accurate.
*巫山戯た: basically “fucked up”, but sounds too harsh in my opinion
*疾く: when i was already done with the translation, i noticed i forgot 疾く (“fast, quickly”); i didn’t know how to put it into the sentence, so i added it at the very end
*熱量にしてしまえ:literally,  熱量 is “calorific value”, but the して (“do”) at the end made me go with “heat up”, i don’t know whether this is accurate enough though
*神様の采配: lit. “God’s truncheon”


行き違う 現実と真実
血流が奔る 銀色の軌跡
ちょっと特別製の 運命なんだって
収束点に向け 疾走る不確定性定理
ikichigau genjitsu to shinjitsu
ketsuryuu ga hashiru gin’iro no kiseki
chotto tokubetsusei no unmei nanda tte
shuusoku ten ni muke hashiru fukakutei settei

 you misunderstood “reality“ and “ truth“
my bloodstream races from a silvery remnant
and i know that it’s a slightly unusual fate
i run towards the point of recovery, a theorem of uncertainty

原子の塵まで 熱量にしてしまえ
genshi no chiri made netsuryou ni shite shimae

until the atoms turn to dust i will keep heating it up

流線型の現実と その血に刻む脈動を
巫山戯た結論を 許す必要性がない
正論とか理不尽とか あんまり関係ないね
答えだったら ここにあるぜ
たった一つの 論理的帰結さ 疾く在ればいい
ryuusenkei no genjitsu to sono chi ni kizamu myakudou wo
fuzaketa ketsuron wo yurusu hitsuyousei ga nai
seiron toka rifujin toka anmari kankeinai ne
kotae dattara koko ni aru ze
tatta hitotsu no ronriteki kiketsu sa toku areba ii

i will engrave that streamlined reality and pulse into my blood
there’s no need to allow such foolish conclusions
Sound arguments or unreasonableness barely matter
in this case, if the answer is right here
there needs to be only one logical consequence – and fast!

いい加減に夢から覚めたほうがいい
言葉を重ねるのは あまりいいやり方じゃない
予定調和だって そんなに簡単ではない
ハッピーエンドまで 間違えられないからさ
iikagen ni yume kara sameta hou ga ii
kotoba wo kasaneru no wa amari ii yarikata ja nai
yotei chouwa datte sonna ni kantan dewa nai
happii endo made machigaerarenai kara sa

you better wake up from this fleeting dream
and it’s not exactly a good way to pile up the words
even preestablished harmony isn’t that simple
but i cannot be mistaken until i reach my happy end

世界の果てまで 壊し尽くして見せて
sekai no hate made kowashi tsukushite misete

 until the end of the world, i‘ll show you i strive for destruction

感情の亀裂に 神様の采配を乗せて
巫山戯た運命を 貫けばいいから
kanjou no kiretsu ni kamisama no saihai wo nosete
fuzaketa unmei wo tsuranukeba ii kara

 in the rift of my emotions, i will follow God’s lead
because i will go through with this messed up fate

原子の塵まで 熱量にしてしまえ
genshi no chiri made netsuryou ni shite shimae

 until the atoms turn to dust i will keep heating it up

流線型の現実と その血に刻む脈動を
巫山戯た結論を 許す必要性がない
ryuusenkei no genjitsu to sono chi ni kizamu myakudou wo
fuzaketa ketsuron wo yurusu hitsuyousei ga nai

i will engrave that streamlined reality and pulse into my blood
there is no need to allow such foolish conclusions

価値観とか正義論とか あんまり関係ないね
答えだったら ここにあるぜ
たった一つの 論理的帰結さ 疾く在ればいい
kachikan toka seigiron toka anmari kankeinai ne
kotae dattara koko ni aru ze
tatta hitotsu no ronriteki kiketsu sa toku areba ii

moral concepts or the theory of justice barely matter
in this case, if the answer is right here
there needs to be only one logical consequence – and fast!

Vocal: ichigo
Album: hack/SLASH
Original Arrangement

First off, i want to apologize to Chii for totally ruining this song! That is because to me, the lyrics make no sense at all, like, absolutely no sense…I really had a hard time translating this, so i am sorry if it sounds horrible and nonsensical to you :(
Second, i would greatly appreciate it if one of my fellow translators could take a look at this so that i can correct possible mistakes!Third, what (i think) this song is about: relationship drama. The lyrics are from a guy’s perspective, the girl is being indecisive all the time, having mood swings even. Deep within, both know that their relationship is strained/on-off, but they just try to hide the fact, laughing it off and not wanting to think about it all (thus the dance). But this is just my opinion on this, please interpret however you like! Picture is random ‘cus i am uncreative.

Thanks to Releska for the help!
and also, i will revise this again when i have more knowledge about the passive.

*宣戦布告も戦闘不能も: “declaration of war, the inability to fight”-> that is what the girl does, starting a fight but not being able to continue
*僕が笑ったって不機嫌すぎる目に見られて陣中: the guy is pissed off by her indecisiveness, but decides that if she starts a fight, she will get it, no matter what. 見られて is actually a passive form.
*僕はもう輪郭もないさ: lit. “i don’t have outlines anymore”
*柔らかな指で触られて心中: this made me confused since i do not know how the words are connected (notice the commas). I translated 触られて with “thrilled”, but lit. it is “touched”. My explanation is that the guy thinks about how much they fight, so  both (or probably just him)think they’d be better off dead
*君の何: had no clue what this actually is supposed to mean.


「手を離してよ」 彼女は言う
「手を繋いでよ」 彼女は言う
宣戦布告も戦闘不能もいつだって君次第だなってほんと
“te wo hanashite yo” kanojo wa iu
“te wo tsunaide yo” kanojo wa iu
sensen fukoku mo sentou funou mo itsu datte kimi shidai da natte honto

  “just let go of my hand“ she says
  “let us hold hands, okay“ she says
you say “declarations of war and being unable to fight are always up to you” but really…

僕が笑ったって不機嫌すぎる目に見られて陣中!
boku ga warattatte fukigen sugiru me ni mirarete jinchuu!

even if i laugh too moodily, my eyes clearly see the battlefield!

DANCEだ、ダンス!
踊れよ不乱に
此処はもう真空のフロアー
DANCEだ、ダンス!
夢なら無惨に朽ち果てボロになった
DANCEだ、ダンス!
踊れよ不断に
僕はもう輪郭もないさ
屠られ愛に塗れて捨てられて笑ってやるさ
DANCE da, dansu!
odoreyo furan ni
koko wa mou shinkuu no furoaa
DANCE da, dansu!
yume nara muzan ni kuchihate boro ni natta
DANCE da, dansu!
odoreyo fudan ni
boku wa mou rinkaku mo nai sa
hofurare ai ni mamirete suterarete waratte yaru sa

it’s a DANCE, so dance!
let’s whirl carelessly
the floor here is already airvoid
it’s a DANCE, so dance!
if it’s a dream then it will rot to misery, be torn to pieces
it’s a DANCE, so dance!
let’s swing continually
my outlines have already faded
tainted in slaughtered love, thrown away, just laugh it off

「こっちみないでよ」 彼女は言う
「こっちみていてよ」 彼女は言う
変幻自在の不確定なルールはいつだって君次第だなってほんと
“kocchi minai de yo” kanojo wa iu
“kocchi mite ite yo” kanojo wa iu
hengenjizai no fukakutei na ruuru wa itsu datte kimi shidai da natte honto

 “please don’t look at me“ she says
  “please look over here“ she says
you say “the rules of your polymorphous uncertainty are always up to you” but really…

僕が仕返したって柔らかな指で触られて心中!
boku ga shikaeshita tte yawaraka na yubi de furerarete shinjuu!

even if i take revenge, with my soft fingers, i’m thrilled by double suicide!

DANCEだ、ダンス!
踊れよ不乱に
此処はもう天国じゃないか?
DANCEだ、ダンス!
断れよ男子、無理だなぁ本能だった
DANCEだ、ダンス!
踊れよ不断に
僕らもう地獄確定さ
壊して直して嫌ってまた壊すくせに愛してる
DANCE da, dansu!
odoreyo furan ni
koko wa mou tengoku ja nai ka?
DANCE da, dansu!
kotowareyo danshi, muri da naa honnou datta
DANCE da, dansu!
odoreyo fudan ni
bokura mou jigoku kakutei sa
kowashite naoshite kiratte mata kowasu kuse ni aishiteru

it’s a DANCE, so dance!
let’s whirl carelessly
isn’t this here heaven yet?
it’s a DANCE, so dance!
refuse it, boys, it really is an impossible instinct
it’s a DANCE, so dance!
let’s swing continually
we realized this is already hell now
destroy it, fix it, hate it and break it again, but even so i love you

どうして君の何が僕を開いたり閉じたりさせるんだろう
doushite kimi no nani ga boku wo hiraitari tojitari saseru ndarou

why does something in you make me open up sometimes, make me shut myself?

DANCEだ、ダンス!
踊れよ不乱に
此処はもう真空のフロアー
DANCEだ、ダンス!
夢なら無惨に朽ち果てボロになった
DANCEだ、ダンス!
踊れよ不断に
僕はもう輪郭もないさ
屠られ愛に塗れて捨てられて笑ってやるさ
DANCE da, dansu!
odoreyo furan ni
koko wa mou shinkuu no furoaa
DANCE da, dansu!

it’s a DANCE, so dance!

the floor here is already airvoid
it’s a DANCE, so dance!
if it’s a dream then it will rot to misery, be torn to pieces

another and hack on the world are my absolute favourites from hack/SLASH.
AND, yes, i will translate the whole album !
also, i split the lyrics at some parts so that the verse wouldn’t be too long.
i’m sorry for not finding a good picture for this one, forgive me :)

*駆動音: i don’t know what this is referring to, sorry~
*太陽めいた紛い物: well here i had difficulties with めいた, i assume it derives from 滅入る
*目隠しして見通せなくしてよ、どうか: i think here, the して can mean “do this for me”, that is why i translated どうか with “please” as some kind of request
*手放す: means either “giving up” or “letting go”
*誰かが言った「幸せになる権利」を行使して生きていいよね: literally “someone once said living according to the “right to happiness“ is good”
*
ぼくだって: ~“even i deserve to be happy”


明けない夜みたいだ
呼吸さえ煩わしい
ループする駆動音だけが
鼓動のように優しい
akenai yoru mitai da
kokyuu sae wazurawashii
ruupu suru kudou on dake ga
kodou no you ni yasashii

what seems like an endless night
makes it difficult breathing
only the drive sound repeats
gently, like this heartbeat

神様、どうして僕だけこんなに不完全にしたの?
愛されたいと願うこと 壊されたいと嘆くこと
kamisama, doushite boku dake konna ni fukanzen ni shita no?
aisaretai to negau koto kowasaretai to nageku koto

God, why have you only made me an incomplete being?
i want to be loved, i lament that i want to be broken

もう、いやなんだ衝動が
心臓をとりだして動けなくしてよ、どうか
mou, iya nanda shoudou ga
shinzou wo toridashite ugokenaku shite yo, douka

again, this sickening impulse
has ripped out my heart, so please just make it stop

cry out
焦がれたくないよ
息をひそめるように泣いて
見上げるだけなら何故生まれて来たんだろう
cry out
kogaretakunai yo
iki wo hisomeru you ni naite
miageru dake nara naze umarete kitandarou

cry out
i don’t want to yearn for it
holding my breath as i cry
if i only ever look up, then why was i even born ?

果てない問いみたいだ
真っ暗な僕を照らす
愛されたいと願わせる
太陽めいた紛い物
hatenai toi mitai da
makkura na boku wo terasu
aisaretai to negawaseru
taiyou meita magaimono

what seems like a neverending problem
shines on this pitch-black me
it makes me want to be loved
 a fake sun weighs me down

もう、嫌なんだ弱いのが
いっそ目隠しして見通せなくしてよ、どうか
mou, iya nanda yowai no ga
isso mekakushi shite mitoosenaku shite yo, douka

again, i hate being weak like this
i’d rather be blindfolded, not foreseeing anything, so please-

明るくはないけれどすがるには十分すぎる
光に手を伸ばした
akaruku wa nai keredo sugaru ni wa juubun sugiru
hikari ni te wo nobashita

it may not be bright,but clinging to it is more than enough
i reach out to the light

cry out
感じたくないよ
未知を認めるように抱いて
手放すだけなら何故好きだと笑ったの?
cry out
kanjitakunai yo
michi wo mitomeru you ni daite
tebanasu dake nara naze suki da to waratta no?

cry out
i don’t want to feel this
seeing the way as i hold it close
if it’s just giving up, why do i smile and say that i like it?

誰かが言った「幸せになる権利」を行使して生きていいよね、
ぼくだって
dareka ga itta “shiawase ni naru kenri” wo koushi shite ikite ii yo ne,
boku datte

someone once said “everyone deserves to become happy in life“,
that counts even for me

もう、いやなんだ衝動が
心臓をとりだして動けなくしてよ、どうか
mou, iya nanda shoudou ga
shinzou wo toridashite ugokenaku shite yo, douka

again, this sickening impulse
has ripped out my heart, so please just make it stop

cry out
焦がれたくないよ
息をひそめるように泣いて
見上げるだけなら何故生まれて来たんだろう
cry out

Awesome. Just awesome.
Lyrics by friedworld, thanks for that.

*最低の運ゲーなんだ: ~ close to no chance of “winning”
*君にとってのイージーモードは: aren’t we all actually playing life on hard mode…
*弱者: in fact, 弱者 means “weakling, the weak”, however it is pronounced as 一人; it seems the speaker includes herself when she says “weaklings”, because she isn’t playing on “easy mode” (see above)
*敗北の二文字はない: wordplay; defeat (敗北) has two characters, 敗 and 北, literally it says “these aren’t the two characters of defeat” -> “not being defeated yet”


生まれてきた時点で
避けられないのは
人生というどうかと
思うゲームへの招待
umarete kita jiten de
sakerarenai no wa
jinsei to iu douka to
omou geemu e no shoutai

at the time when i was born
i could not stop myself from
thinking whether somehow
this life is my game invitation

勝利条件は曖昧
スタート地点も不公平
完全ランダム方式
最低の運ゲーなんだ
shouri jouken wa aimai
sutaato chiten mo fukouhei
kanzen randamu houshiki
saitei no un gee nanda

victory conditions are ambiguous
the starting point is unfair
the method completely random
what a game of minimal luck

It is hell here I live forever

それでもどこかに道はあるのさ
soredemo dokoka ni michi wa aru no sa

but still, there must be a way somewhere, somehow

Live on World’s end
それがどうした?
潔さなんていらない
諦めるくらいなら
死んだほうがマシさ
Hack on the World
冗談じゃない!
終了の合図はまだだ
このままでいいはずがない

Live on World’s end
sore ga doushita?
isagiyosa nante iranai
akirameru kurai nara
shinda hou ga mashi sa
Hack on the World
joudan ja nai!
shuuryou no aizu wa mada da
kono mama de ii hazu ga nai

Live on world’s end
so what about it?
i don’t need fearlessness
if i really give up  at least
i am better off dead
hack on the world
i’m not joking!
it’s not the end signal yet
there’s no way i’m okay with this

君にとってのイージーモードは
とても退屈なんだろう
焼けつくような速度で
神経が走り出す
kimi ni totte no iijii moodo wa
totemo taikutsu na ndarou
yaketsuku you na sokudo de
shinkei ga hashiridasu

i suppose playing on easy mode
is just plain boring for you
with a blazing speed like this
your nerves break into a run

予想外なのはいいね
残念だけれど
yosougai na no wa ii ne
zannen da keredo

the unexpected really is nice, right?
how unfortunate though

興味がないことは 人間には
出来やしないもんさ
建設的に考えてみよう
案外と簡単なもんだ
kyoumi ga nai koto wa ningen ni wa
deki yashinai mon sa
kensetsuteki ni kangaete miyou
angai to kantan na mon da

being uninterested in things is something
that humans cannot possibly do
let us try thinking constructively
then the unforeseen will become easy

Live on descent
それがどうした?
敗北の二文字はない
弱者には譲れない何かがあるって
Hack on the World
冗談じゃない!
最後の仕掛けはどうだい
なかなかいい趣味だろう
Live on descent
sore ga doushita?
haiboku no nimoji wa nai
hitori ni wa yuzurenai nanika ga aru tte
Hack on the World
joudan ja nai!
saigo no shikake wa dou dai
nakanaka ii shumi darou

live on descent
so what about it?
i will not be defeated just yet
it’s something the weak won’t back away from
hack on the world

i’m not joking!
how do you like this last trick?
this is truly just to my liking

Live on World’s end
それがどうした?
潔さなんていらない
諦めるくらいなら
死んだほうがマシさ
Hack on the World
冗談じゃない!
終了の合図がきたぜ
悪くない気分だろう?
Live on World’s end
sore ga doushita?
isagiyosa nante iranai
akirameru kurai nara
shinda hou ga mashi sa
Hack on the World
joudan ja nai!
shuuryou no aizu ga kita ze
warukunai kibun darou?

Live on world’s end
so what about it?
i don’t need fearlessness
if i really give up  at least
i am better off dead
hack on the world
i’m not joking!
the end signal has finally come
this isn’t too bad, is it?
