To be honest, I thought this song was about Koishi/Satori when I was translating it. I didn’t realise it was an arrangement of Remilia’s stage theme until I actually listened to it…


歌詞

「力とは不幸の証」
ちっぽけな言葉に揺れた

感情は間違いだらけ
後になり気づいてばかり

この爪で切り裂く邪魔なものは
出会い方一つで躊躇いで霞む

恨みは連鎖して カオスになる
何のために今日も
傷つけ合うのか?

「正義とはぶつかるもの」と
この矛盾嘆くことしか…

許し合うことは正義か?
逃げること、これが平和か?

心を殺すこと、いたわること
意味は違うけれど結果は等しい

恨みは正義だと知りたくない
悲しみは案外、たちが悪いから

犠牲を出してまで
守りたいと

夢を叶えるため
忘れたフリした

手に入れた安らぎ
価値はあるな

エゴに飲まれながら
君を愛でるんだ。

Romanisation

“chikara to wa fukou no akashi”
chippoke na kotoba ni yureta

kanjou wa machigai darake
ato ni nari kidzuite bakari

kono tsuma de kirisaku jama na mono wa
deai kata hitotsu de tameraide kasumu

urami wa rensa shite kaosu ni naru
nan no tame ni kyou mo
kizutsuke au no ka?

“seigi to wa butsukaru mono” to
kono mujun nageku koto shika…

yurushi au koto wa seigi ka?
nigeru koto, kore ga heiwa ka?

kokoro wo korosu koto, itawaru koto
imi wa chigau keredo kekka wa hitoshii

urami wa seigi da to shiritakunai
kanashimi wa angai, tachi ga warui kara

gisei wo dashite made
mamoritai to

yume wo kanaeru tame
wasureta furi shita

te ni ireta yasuragi
kachi wa aru na

ego ni nomare nagara
kimi wo mederun da

Translation

“Power is a sign of unhappiness.”
I was shaken by those small words…

Emotions are nothing but mistakes –
I only realised it afterwards.

Those hindrances, who I tear to pieces with these claws,
Hesitate and grow blurry through one form of encountering me.

My grudges form chains, and become chaos.
I wonder, for what purpose
Do we wound each other today, as well?

“Justice is something to clash against.”
I can do naught but lament this contradiction.

Is forgiving each other justice?
Running away… is that peace?

Killing my heart, and pitying…
Though their meanings differ, their results are the same.

I don’t want to know that grudges are ‘justice,’
Because sadness is unexpected, and vicious.

I want to protect it so much
I could sacrifice others…

So my dream would be granted,
I pretended I had forgotten.

The serenity I have obtained…
Does it have value?

Whilst being engulfed by my ego,
I love you…
