歌詞

陽射さぬ道に吹きゆく風は
もの言わぬ霊の追憶
いつか見た夢の焼け跡へと
還る術探し

流れる闇に灯す光の
儚さは誰の生き様
朽ちゆく骸にわずか遺る
さいごの恋心

微笑は重い鎧戸となり
心をかたく閉じ込める
抱き上げる骨の冷たさにも
揺らがないように

いずれ失せゆくものを愛した
それを悔やみはしないけれど
ただ願っていた
叶うならば
変わらずにいたいと

かすんでゆく とおいひびに
わたしをよぶ きみのこえは
むねのおくで いまもずっと
やむことなく きこえるのに

今の私に何ができよう
煤に汚れたこの腕に
過ぎ去りしものを抱きしめては
風に帰すだけ

仰いだ涯にあの空はなく
獄は燃えてなお死に冷え

降り積もるものは雪か灰か
もうわからない

教えてください
歌声の果てを

hizashi sanu michi ni fuki yuku kaze wa

itsuka mita yume no yakeato e to

nagareru yami ni tomosu hikari no
hakanasa wa dare no ikizama
kuchi yuku mukuro ni wazuka nokoru

izure use yuku mono wo aishita
sore wo kuyami wa shinai keredo
tada negatte ita

Translation

The wind blows through the path where light does not shine.
It is a recollection of the voiceless spirits.
I search for a means to return to the scorched ruins
That I once saw in a dream.

Whose life forms the transience of the light
In the flowing darkness?
It is the last love remaining in the corpses
Rotting away.

My smile becomes like a heavy shutter.
My heart is locked heavily.
I pray that the coldness of the bones I take up
Will not grow unstable.

I loved the one who, sooner or later, disappeared.
Though I mustn’t mourn them,
I just wished.
If my wish will be granted,
I want to live without change.

In the distant flames, you grow faint,
Though I can hear your voice
Inside my chest, calling me,
Without end…

What can I do, as I am now?
Embracing those who pass by
With my hands, stained with soot,
Only results in them returning to the wind.

That sky is no longer above the horizon I gaze at.
Hell burns, and freezes in death.

Is it snow or ash falling now?
I don’t know anymore.

Please, let me know
How your song ends.
