Deaf to All But The Song , Mystia Lorelei’s Theme
東方永夜抄~ Imperishable Night

Requested by Eiki.

My god this song is utterly depressing…
Short notice also: ヒトガタ(hitogata, usually written as 人型) isn’t really “person”, it rather is something like “entity, humanoid, being”. You may choose what you find fitting.


feel the night
so, cause my soul

夜になれば、おまえは消えるだろう
yoru ni nareba, omae ha kieru no darou

when night falls, i wonder if you’ll disapppear

またゆめ またゆめ いつからみている
みえない みえない なみだでみえない

mata yume mata yume itsuka mite iru
mienai mienai namida de mienai

one day i’ll have this dream again, this dream again
i can’t see, i can’t see, underneath these tears

傷の舐め合い、まだ、夢が醒めないままで
夜を彷徨い、やがて見えるだろう

kizu no name ai, mada, yume ga samenai mama de
yoru wo samayoi, yagate mieru darou

licking each other’s wounds, still i can’t wake from this dream
so i wander through the night, will i finally be able to see again?

いばらの かざりは 聖なる誘い
きえない きえない この手の傷痕
またゆめ またゆめ いつからみている
みえない みえない ゆめからさめない

ibara no kazari ha seinaru sasoi
kienai kienai kono te no kizuato
mata yume mata yume itsukara mite iru
mienai mienai yume kara samenai

this crown of thorns is my hallowed temptation
they won’t fade, won’t fade, the scars on my hands
since when do i have this dream again, this dream again
i can’t see, can’t see, can’t wake from this dream

Weeelll happy belated new year to you all!
In fact i haven’t been completely lazy, i just wasn’t home to work on any translations. From now on i’ll try to translate as much as i can until exams start in february.
But for now, enjoy this kairo song :)

*縛られた椅子に座り続けながらも: this doesn’t seem to make much sense since you can’t ‘walk’ and ‘sit on a chair’ at the same time, i’m aware of that, but i think it rather means something like “my mind wanders off”, that the singer basically “dreams herself away, looking for a place to go to”


傷つけ合って また誰かのせいにして
救われたいと泣き喚き散らした

kizutsuke atte mata dareka no sei ni shite
sukuwaretai to nakiwameki chirashita

We hurt each other but blame someone else again
my cries that i want to be saved scatter all around

縛られた椅子に座り続けながらも
行き先探してまだ迷ってる

shibarareta isu ni suwari tsuzuke nagara mo
ikisaki sagashite mada mayotteru

even while i keep sitting on the chair i’m tied to
i still wander around, looking for a destination

動かなくなった
足を引きずりながら
また次へと進むのか
逃げられないなら
閉じた目をさあ 開いて
涙溢れても

ugokanaku natta
ashi wo hikizuri nagara
mata tsugi e to susumu no ka
nigerarenai nara
tojita me wo saa hiraite
namida afurete mo

i became unable to move
as i drag my legs along
will i still make it to the next place?
if i cannot run away
i just open my shut eyes again
even if tears will overflow

I can’t take it anymore

一人じゃ何もできないよなんて言って
歩くの止めた愚かな私は

hitori ja nani mo dekinai yo nante itte
aruku no yameta oroka na watashi wa

you say i can’t reach anything all alone
how foolish of me to give up on moving forward

開き直って全てを放り投げて
無くしてやっと後悔してる

hirakinaotte subete wo houri nagete
nakushite yatto koukai shiteru

in defiance i throw it all aside, but
when it’s gone i’ll regret it by the skin of my teeth

動かなくなった
足を引きずりながら
また次へと進むのか
逃げられないなら
閉じた目をねえ 開いて
涙溢れても

ugokanaku natta
ashi wo hikizuri nagara
mata tsugi e to susumu no ka
nigerarenai nara
tojita me wo nee hiraite
namida afurete mo

i became unable to move
as i drag my legs along
will i still make it to the next one?
if i cannot run away
i shall open my shut eyes again
even if tears will overflow

I can’t take it anymore

有頂天変 ~ Wonderful Heaven  (Catastrophe in Bhava-agra ~ Wonderful Heaven), Tenshi Hinanawi’s Theme

Requested by Eiki.

Honestly, i didn’t expect the lyrics to be this dark…
Since i got a new computer, the format of the lyrics might be a bit different from now on because i started working with OpenOffice instead of Microsoft Word ^^
Might change it back to normal later.

*不全:(title) also “failure, insufficiency, dysfunction, deficiency, distress”
*誰も触れはしないの: no pronoun here, i just assumed it means “don’t touch me” as in ‘don’t wake me up /don’t interfere with this’
*あなたはどこへ隠れて: “you” as in her reflection in the mirror she sees . Also i think she barely recognizes herself in the mirror (maybe talking to her “other self”?)
*開き直れば: lots of meanings here, could also be “to pull oneself together”, “to accept a challenge”
*触れるだけでいいのに: lit. “i’m okay with just touching”, i changed “touch” to “feel” since i’m not sure what she is referring to


 

時計の針が示す直線 憂鬱がまた始まっていく
鏡の前で気の抜けた顔 いつも通りと思って油断していた
tokei no hari ga shimesu chokusen yuuutsu ga mata hajimatte iku
kagami no mae de ki no nuketa kao itsumo toori to omotte yudan shite ita

the ticking clock hands show a straight line, melancholy hits me again
in front of the mirror, a frustrated face, as always i think about how careless i was

またたく内に青ざめてゆく その顔に空く無数の穴
訳もわからず隠しましたが塞がらなくて けれど痛みもなくて
matataku uchi ni aozamete yuku sono kao ni aku musuu no ana
wake mo wakarazu kakushimashita ga fusagara nakute keredo itami mo nakute

inside i suddenly turn pale, i see countless holes torn into that face
without knowing the reason, i tried to hide and shut it away, though there is no pain

眠るたびに透ける手足 まぼろしの癖にもがいて
夜だって空は見えるのに 誰も触れはしないの
nemuru tabi ni sukeru teashi maboroshi no kuse ni mogaite
yoru datte sora wa mieru noni daremo fure wa shinai no

although i struggle every time i sleep, my limbs turn into a see-through illusion
because at night i can finally see the sky, i won’t let anyone touch me

時計の針が示す直線 憂鬱がまた形を変え
鏡の前で問い掛けてみる あなたはどこへ隠れてしまわれたの
tokei no hari ga shimesu chokusen yuuutsu ga mata katachi wo kae
kagami no mae de toikakete miru anata wa doko he kakurete shimawareta no

the ticking clock hands show a straight line, my melancholy changes shape again
in front of the mirror, i look at you and start asking where you have been hiding

眠るたびに思い出すの 消えたいと願う自分を
夢だってそれは叶うのに 誰も望んでいないの
nemuru tabi ni omoidasu no kietai to negau jibun wo
yume datte sore wa kanau noni daremo nozonde inai no

everytime i sleep, i remember how i wish to disappear
because in my dream, that which nobody else longs for, can come true

抑圧なんてされない立場 不安は徐々になくなるの
神様の罰? それも愛でしょう 開き直れば快適です
これが醒めない夢ならば
もう二度と
起きることがないよう
祈っています
yokuatsu nante sarenai tachiba fuan wa jojo ni nakunaru no
kamisama no batsu? sore mo ai deshou hirakinaoreba kaiteki desu
kore ga samenai yume naraba
mou nidoto
okiru koto ga nai you
inotte imasu

a viewpoint without supression, even my fears are slowly fading away
god’s punishment? I’m sure that’s just his love, it’d be pleasant if this got serious now
if this is a never ending dream
then i will
keep praying that
i’ll never wake up again

いつかは治る病 まぼろしの癖にもがいて
夜にこそ星は見えるのに 誰も触れはしないの
itsuka wa naoru yamai maboroshi no kuse ni mogaite
yoru ni koso hoshi wa mieru noni daremo fure wa shinai no

although it’s just an illusion, i keep struggling and one day this disease will heal
because at night, i can see the stars, i won’t let anyone touch me

触れるだけでいいのに
fureru dake de ii noni

i just want to feel it

デザイアドライブ / Desire Drive

Requested by Eiki.
i have to say, i really like this, the vocals and lyrics are nice plus it’s a desire drive arrange ^_^
Oh and if anybody is wondering, starting today i will transcribe は as “ha”.

*it does sound a bit like it’s Yoshika speaking, but i’m sure it’s Seiga after all
*ただ一つだけ許して : “just one” – just one (more) prayer
*報われたら: not sure what to make of this


世界にただ二人きリの私を見て 哀れむのね
構わないわ 知らなくても誰にも踏み込ませないわ
sekai ni tada futarikiri no watashi wo mite awaremu no ne
kamawanai wa shiranakutemo darenimo fumikomasenai wa

in a world with just the two of us, i want you to look at me without pity
i don’t care if you don’t know, i will not let anyone interfere

作り出した器だけのあなたと今踊るだけよ
命なんて偽物でも満たされればそれでいいのよ
tsukuridashita utsuwa dake no anata to ima odoru dake yo
inochi nante nisemono demo mitasarereba sore de ii no yo

now i’m dancing with you, who is but a vessel i have created
even if that life is a fake, i wish you could be fulfilled, that’s all i ask for

憧れが溢れてもこの気持ちが伝わらぬなら
どれだけ祈る事も虚しい
ただ一つだけ許して 私を覚えているのなら
裏切ったあなたの愛が愛しい
akogare ga afurete mo kono kimochi ga tsutawaranu nara
doredake inoru koto mo munashii
tada hitotsu dake yurushite watashi wo oboeteiru no nara
uragitta anata no ai ga itoshii

even if my desires overflow, if i cannot deliver my feelings to you
then all my prayers are in vain
but allow me just one when you are thinking of me
i betrayed you, although your love is so precious

この世界にただ二人きリの私を見て 哀れむのね
構わないわ 知らなくても誰にも踏み込ませないわ
kono sekai ni tada futarikiri no watashi wo mite awaremu no
kamawanai wa shiranakutemo darenimo fumikomasenai wa

in this world with just the two of us, i want you to look at me without pity
i don’t care if you don’t know, i will not let anyone interfere

作り出した器だけのあなたと今踊るだけよ
命なんて偽物でも満たされればそれでいいのよ
tsukuridashita utsuwa dake no anata to ima odoru dake yo
inochi nante nisemono demo mitasarereba sore de ii no yo

now i’m dancing with you, who is but a vessel i have created
even if that life is a fake, i wish you could be fulfilled, that’s all i ask for

真実がどれほど強く願いをかき消そうとも
認めない私は夢を叶える
さぁ   逝きなさい舞い散る生命の花園を抜けて
償いは終わる事ない悲しみ
shinjitsu ga dorehodo tsuyoku negai wo kakikesou tomo
mitomenai watashi ha yume wo kanaeru
saa yukinasai maichiru seimei no hanazono wo nukete
tsugunai ha owaru koto nai kanashimi

even if the truth seems to erase all my strong wishes
i will not admit that it’s a dream come true
now go and escape this scattering garden of life!
i cannot make amends for this endless misery

この暗闇から見つけ出したあなたを連れ綻んだ
絆を今感じたいわ繋がる事の嬉しさを
kono kurayami kara mitsukedashita anata wo tsure hokoronda
kizuna wo ima kanjitai wa tsunagaru koto no ureshisa wo

i want to take you out of the darkness i found you in, so you’ll blossom
i want to feel our bond right now, the happiness of being united

繰り返すは傀儡と今        口付けして 吹き込んだ
呪術の中     彷徨ている      禁忌の理を受けて
kurikaesu ha kugutsu to ima kuchizuke shite fukikonda
jujutsu no naka samayoute iru kinki no kotowari wo ukete

repeatedly blowing a kiss to the puppet on a string, while
wandering aimlessly in this sorcery, i accept every taboos‘ reason

紡ぎたいわ あなたの繭 悲しみから報われたら
失っても 怖くないわ あなた以外いらないわ
tsumugitai wa anata no mayu kanashimi kara mukuwaretara
ushinattemo kowakunai wa anata igai iranai wa

when you are rewarded, i want to spin you a cocoon from this sadness
even if i lose everything, i’m not afraid, you’re all i ever need

あなたとただ ここに居ると優しささえ忘れるのわ
涙なんて流さないわ 私は今あなたといるの
anata to tada koko ni iru to yasashisa sae wasureru no wa
namida nante nagasanai wa watashi ha ima anata to iru no

being here with you makes me forget even this kindness
i don’t need to shed tears anymore, now that i can be with you

寂しさなど感じないわ温もりなどなくても良い
ただいる事 側にいれば闘う事できるはずね
sabishisa nado kanjinai wa nukumori nado nakute mo ii
tada iru koto soba ni ireba tatakau koto dekiru hazu ne

and i don’t feel loneliness anymore, it’s alright if there is no warmth
just being with you, by your side, then i should be able to fight

届けたいわ 奈落にまで形のない旋律を
解けないわ 抗うだけ無駄な罪と気付いてるわ
todoketai wa naraku ni made katachi no nai senritsu wo
hodokenai wa aragau dake muda na tsumi to kizuiteiru wa

i want to reach you to the dephts of hell, with this formless melody
never coming undone, i can only struggle while realizing my pointless sin

この世界にただ二人きリの私を見て 哀れむのね
構わないわ 知らなくても誰にも踏み込ませないわ
kono sekai ni tada futarikiri no watashi wo mite awaremu no
kamawanai wa shiranakutemo darenimo fumikomasenai wa

今昔幻想郷 ~Flower Land, Yuuka Kazami’s Theme

Requested by Eiki.
And i have to apologize but requests might take a while from now on, university is kinda stressing me lately. Enjoy nevertheless!

*雲遊に偲はく: this little phrase almost made me freak out since i could not translate this at all. 雲遊 (unyuu) has the character “雲” (kumo- cloud) and “遊” (yuu – idle). What follows is 偲はく (shinohaku);
“偲” (shino) derives from “偲ぶ” (shinobu – remember, think of) whereas “はく” (haku) can mean “wear/ soul/ foil/ throw up… etc”, so….i completely replaced the words with “drift by” which i think fits the context just fine. Feel free to correct me anytime though!
*あの少女 : i have no clue who “that girl” could be


たまゆらに宵はひいて暁をかかげる
露を染め花は結び雲遊に偲はく
あの向こうへ そう遠くへ 僕らはそらに願う
tamayura ni yoi wa hiite akatsuki wo kakageru
tsuyu wo some hana wa musubi unyuu ni shinohaku
ano mukou he sou tooku he bokura wa sora ni negau

in a fleeting moment, night passes and dawn breaks
dyeing the dew, the flowers blossom and idle clouds drift by
far, far beyond that, we say our wishes to the sky

爪先立ちで背を伸ばしていた頃
「駄目だね、まだ」
「ほら、今日もまた夜があける」
tsumasakidachi de se wo nobashite ita koro
dame da ne, mada
hora, kyou mo mata yo ga akeru

back then, we stretched our backs on tiptoes
“it’s still useless after all”
“but look, today, night will pass again”

蒼に触れそらを翔けるあの少女のように
いつかなあ、まだ先かなあ
そらのカーテンの下で
ao ni fure sora wo kakeru ano shoujo no you ni
itsuka naa, mada saki ka naa
sora no kaaten no shita de

flying through the sky and touching the blue, just like that girl
oh sometime, someday we will…
underneath the curtain of this sky

春風よ、轍に乗り僕らをもっと遠くへ
夢にみた光る先へ あの少女と共に
haru kaze yo, wadachi ni nori bokura wa motto tooku he
yume ni mita hikaru saki he ano shoujo to tomo ni

a spring breeze blows, along the wheel tracks we go further
towards the light we’ve seen in our dreams, together with that girl

現は景 白にそまる
ああ、僕ら浮かぶその向こうで
一つの奇跡がうまれるんだね
utsutsu wa kei shiro ni somaru
aa bokura ukabu sono mukou de
hitotsu no kiseki ga umarerunda ne

reality whitens the scenery
ah, we are floating on the other side
and with that, one single miracle is born

「ねえ聞いて、昨日みた夢。
不思議な世界で、そらを飛んだんだ」
nee kiite, kinou mita yume
fushigi na sekai de, sora wo tonda nda

“hey listen, to that dream of yesterday
in this mysterious world, we can fly right through the sky”

*大人に殺された: i know that 大人 (otona) is “adult” but i think that it rather refers to adulthood, how growing up “killed” what she thought was her very own character (e.g. it made her give up on the dreams she had as a child and so on)
*個性の集合体: this sentence left me clueless. no idea what it might be about
*法ができた: 法(hou) is actually “law” but as said above, not sure what it’s about, thus i chose the alternate translation which is “rationality/ reason”


“彼女は殺された 大人に殺された”
“kanojo wa korosareta otona ni korosareta”

“she has been killed, killed by adulthood (adults)“

体裁を守ろうとするママの都合に巻き込まれ
私の個性は殺された
ママは嘆く 私が笑われるでしょう
そうして私の未来は奪われた
teisai wo mamorou to suru mama no tsugou ni makikomare
watashi no kosei wa korosareta
mama wa nageku watashi ga warawareru deshou
soushite watashi no mirai wa ubawareta

caught in the trouble of a mother who tries to keep up appearances
my individuality has been killed
my mother mourns, while i wonder, will i be laughed at
and with that, my future was taken away from me

昔はママも私のように、夢を描いて生きていたかった
だけど大人の都合の中で、いつしか私たちは死んでいた
mukashi wa mama mo watashi no you ni, yume wo egaite ikite itakatta
dakedo otona no tsugou no naka de, itsushika watashitachi wa shinde ita

long ago my mother was just like me, wanting to chase her dreams
but under adults‘ circumstances, we would probably be dead sooner or later

奪われた個性を取り戻せ
この世界に私は一人しかいないのだから
奪われた未来を取り戻せ
私の人生は一度きりなのだから
ubawareta kosei wo torimodose
kono sekai ni watashi wa hitori shika inai no dakara
ubawareta mirai wo torimodose
watashi no jinsei wa ichido kiri nano dakara

I’ll take back the stolen individuality
because i cannot be the only one in this world
I’ll take back the stolen future
because it is the only life that i have

個性の集合体を大衆とし、それを管理するために法ができた
kosei no shuugoutai wo taishuu to shi, sore wo kanri suru tame ni hou ga dekita

a cluster of personalities set to the masses, rationality was able to take care of that

同じ意思のもとに統率され、私はいつしか死んでしまった
それでも何かのために、
私は今でもこうして生きているのかも知れない
onaji ishi no moto ni tousotsu sare, watashi wa itsushika shinde shimatta
soredemo nanika no tame ni,
watashi wa ima demo koushite ikite iru no kamo shirenai

leading to the origin of the same intention, i will certainly die sooner or later
and yet, for the sake of anything
i might be still living this way even now, who knows

本当は誰も子供のように、夢を描いて生きていたかった
だけど自分の都合の中で、いつしか私たちは諦めていた
hontou wa dare mo kodomo no you ni, yume wo egaite ikite itakatta
dakedo jibun no tsugou no naka de, itsushika watashitachi wa akiramete ita

but truth is, everyone wanted to live life chasing dreams like a child

To my dearest friend,
i dedicate you this song today and write you some lines. I just wanted to say thank you for being there for me though you were so far, for accepting me the way i am (including all my idiotic plans), for all the times you made me laugh, for all the times you gave me courage (and didn’t even know that you did), for letting me mess with you, for simply being my friend. Thank you.
Happy birthday!

Probably a very personal translation this time, sorry ’bout errors.
*その息 : actually “your breath”, but i think it fits the song better if the pronoun here is “i/ my”
*君は初めの台詞を: “story-wise”, i think this refers to the very first time the two people met, that’s why it says 初め (first)
*泣き笑い: “Laughing while crying”
*最低の鬼さん: “i’m the lowest demon” – ” i’m the worst”
*だなんて: not sure how to put this, i think it indicates (indirect) speech

every time you welcomed the dark night, i wanted
to reel in your heart

every time, you did it over and over again

「お上手。 お粗末様。

“flattery. don’t mention it!
it’s a magic without any tricks or secrets
if only it wouldn’t move people’s feelings, right?
you said with a straight face“

ねぇねぇ、その息を止めたら
僕のものになるのかな?
精々後悔したいならどうぞ、と笑った

hey, hey, if i just hold my breath
i wonder, could you become mine?
‘if you want to regret it, go ahead‘, you laugh
when i woke up from this dim dream
you finally told me
that line from when we first met
with a smile i have never seen before

暗い朝迎えるその度に君は

泣き笑いを隠した

every time you welcomed the dark morning, you
repeated that line from when we first met
every time, again and again, i busily hid my
tears while trying to laugh

最低の鬼さんはこちら
手を延ばした姿が滑稽で
抱き締めて欲しい?だなんて
saitei no onisan wa kochira
te wo nobashita sugata ga kokkei de
dakishimete hoshii? da nante

and i am the lowest demon,
a comical figure reaching out its hand,
saying, ‘i’d like you to hug me‘

ねぇねぇ、もう一度目を閉じて
君の事忘れたいよ
カラカラと無邪気に笑った
意地悪はどっち?
ねぇねぇもう一度目が覚めて
君も僕も消えればいい

hey, hey, if i close my eyes once more
i want to forget about you,
your bright and innocent laughter
who is the cruel one now?
hey, hey, when open up my eyes again
can we both just disappear?

種も仕掛けもあるも愚かな

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

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

伸ばす
細い腕を
見知らぬこの世界で
nobasu
hosoi ude wo
mishiranu kono sekai de

thin arms
reach out for
this unknown world

誰も
知らない私の思い出が
少しづつ
淡く滲んでいく
daremo
shiranai watashi no omoide ga
sukoshi zutsu
awaku nijinde iku

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

霧を
かけたような
視界に吸い込まれる
kiri wo
kaketa youna
shikai ni suikomareru

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

置いてきた
大切な何かさえ
忘れてる
だから私は
oite kita
taisetsuna nanika sae
wasureteru
dakara watashi wa

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

ひとり
遠いこの場所で
祈り続けるよ
さよならをした
日々に
hitori
tooi kono basho de
inori tsuzuketeru yo
sayonara wo shita
hibi ni

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
ochite nagareteku
inori sasageta
hibi mo

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
koko de deaeta
hibi ni

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
itsuka
omoidashi nagara
waraeru hazu da yo
sayonara wo shita
hibi mo

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
