To Bloom

Lyrics: 溝口ゆうま (Yuma Mizonokuchi)

Album: Former Frontier 4th luxuriant
Circle: Seventh Heaven MAXION
Event: C83
Original theme: Lotus Love

Requested by: Hellscythe

I’m sure others have mentioned this before, but Seventh Heaven MAXION is really good at making… ‘celtic’ (?) styled arrangements. Every time I listen to one of their tracks, I think of a group of witches, cackling around a cauldron… This time, the lyrics seem to be a sort of spell, scattered amongst a bit of narrative here and there. I think the general story revolves around Yuuka, who leads the flowers (representing people) to the darkness/death.

By the way, the title is a Latin word.


歌詞

写りし 水面に 生は芽吹く
愚かな 使命に 神は嘆く

花は 咲き乱れ 夢に導く

甘美なるは生命
花は朽ち種となり紡ぐ運命

その眼に映る 太陽さえ 死へ急ぎ

土に還り巡る
時は進みゆく 残酷に

摂理の中に死にゆく

写りし 水面は 黒く濁り
最後の 使命に 人を裁く

花は 咲き乱れ 闇へ誘う

甘美なるは生命
花は朽ち種となり未来へ繋ぐ

その地に芽吹く 生命さえ 消え果てて

土に還り終える
時は進みゆく 死すべく

何が生きる意味
誰が生きる意味

消えていく定め florere

明日を生きる意味
今日で終わる意味

消えていく定め

ーさぁ、全てを終わらせましょう……ー

その眼に映る 太陽さえ 死へ急ぎ

土に還り巡る
時は進みゆく 残酷に

暗い世界の中一つの生が
目覚める時が来る
死すべき運命と…
火は灯されている

Romanisation

utsurishi minamo ni sei wa mebuku
oroka na shimei ni kami wa nageku

hana wa sakimidare yume ni michibiku

kanbi naru wa seimei
hana wa kuchi tane tonari tsumugu unmei

sono me ni utsuru taiyou sae shi he isogi

tsuchi ni kaeri meguru
toki wa susumiyuku zankoku ni

setsuri no naka ni shi ni yuku

utsurishi minamo wa kuroku nigori
saigo no shimei ni hito wo sabaku

hana wa sakimidare yami he izanau

kanbi naru wa seimei
hana wa kuchi tane to nari mirai e tsunagu

sono chi ni mebuku inochi sae kiehatete

tsuchi ni kaeri oeru
toki wa susumiyuku shi subeku

nani ga ikiru imi
dare ga ikiru imi

kieteiku sadame florere

asu wo ikiru imi
kyou de owari imi

kieteiku sadame

—saa, subete wo owarasemashou……—

sono me ni utsuru taiyou sae shi he isogi

tsuchi ni kaeri meguru
toki wa susumiyuku zankoku ni

kurai sekai no naka hitotsu no sei ga
mezameru toki ga kuru
shi subeki unmei to…
hi wa tomosareteiru

Translation

Upon the reflective water’s surface, life buds.
God laughs at my foolish mission.

The flowers bloom in profusion – I lead them to a dream.

Life grows sweet.
Fate spins a tale of the flowers, which wither and become seeds.

Even the sun reflected in those eyes hurries towards death…

It returns to the earth.
Time progresses forward, cruelly.

It heads towards death, within divine providence.

The reflective water’s surface is clouded black.
During my last mission, I judge humans.

The flowers bloom in profusion – I tempt them towards the darkness.

Life grows sweet.
The flowers wither and become seeds, bound to the future.

Even the life budding upon that land vanishes, completely…

It returns to the earth and concludes.
Time progresses forward so it can die.

What is my reason for living?
Who is my reason for living?

A law, that begins to vanish. To bloom…

The reason why I live tomorrow.
The reason why everything ends today.

A law, that begins to vanish.

—Come, let us bring about the end of all…—

Even the sun reflected in those eyes hurries towards death…

It returns to the earth.
Time progresses forward, cruelly.

The time comes for that single life
Within the dark world to awake.
Along with that mortal fate…
The flame is lit.

    Thanks for taking my request, really! 😀
    Some lines of this song are very hard to follow but once I’ve listened to it a few times I could grasp the rhythm decently~

      You’re welcome!
      I encountered that sort of problem while I was translating it – because there’s three people singing, and because the lines are all separated, it’s kind of hard to know who’s doing what, where… >_<
