歌詞

隅へと追い遣られて 忘れられた此の身が踊る
実しやかな嘘で 小さき者を誑かす

幾重もの歳月が 知らぬうちに見失わせた
贖いを隠しつつ 小さき者を唆す

『右と左』 交じり合わず
『敵と味方』 正しからず
『闇と光』 古より
『黒く白く』 瞬くだけ
『油と水』 混じり合わず
『涙と笑』 楽しからず
『憎悪と愛』 最果てより
『下へ上へ』 波打つだけ

裏返しの世界へ 誘う声を聴け
嗚呼 弱さを攻め手に変え 色付く惡の華
鏡写しの世界で 囚われの身となれ
さあ 無様な喘ぎを上げ 虚空へと沈み逝け

何処かで掛け違えた 当たり前が巫山戯て踊る
是見よがしな嘘で 小さき者を狂わかす

邪な思惑は 小賢しい術 数多に放つ
「零落の雪辱」と 小さき者を拐かす

『ギミトリダヒ』 交じり合わず
『キテトタカミ』 正しからず
『ミヤトリカヒ』 古より
『クルククロシ』 瞬くだけ
『ラブアトズミ』 混じり合わず
『ダミナトミエ』 楽しからず
『オウゾトイア』 最果てより
『ヘタシヘエウ』 波打つだけ

裏返しの世界へ 手招く影を知れ
嗚呼 厭われて恨まれて咲く 退屈の花
鏡写しの世界で 足枷に繋がれ
さあ 卑屈に喚き散らし 虚空へと沈み逝け

左と右 味方と敵
光と闇 白く黒く
水と油 笑と涙
愛と憎悪 上へ下へ

裏返しの世界へ 誘う声を聴け
嗚呼 弱さを攻め手に変え 色付く惡の華
鏡写しの世界で 囚われの身となれ
さあ 無様な喘ぎを上げ 虚空へと沈み逝け

Endless Reverse 

Translation

Forgotten and chased to a corner, I dance.
I deceive the small ones with plausible lies.

I made them lose sight of the years that passed, unawares.
Whilst keeping atonement hidden, I tempted the small ones.

“Right and left” don’t mix. [1]
“Enemies and allies” aren’t right.
“Dark and light,” since ancient times.
“Black and white,” the light just flickers.
“Oil and water” don’t mix.
“Tears and smiles” aren’t fun.
“Hate and love” from the furthest ends…
“Down and up,” all they do is heave to and fro.

Hear my voice, beckoning you to a reverse world.
Aah…. weakness becomes strength, and the flower of malice changes colour.
Become a prisoner in the world seen in the mirror!
Come – let out an uncouth moan and sink into the empty sky!

We crossed paths somewhere. Ordinary things prank around and dance.
With flamboyant lies, I drive the small ones mad.

With my evil malice, I fire off a multitude of crafty tricks.
“This is revenge for our ruin!” Saying this, I kidnap the small ones.

“Thgir and tfel” don’t mix. [2]
“Seimene and seilla” aren’t right.
“Krad and thgil,” since ancient times.
“Kcalb and etihw,” the light just flickers.
“Lio and retaw” don’t mix.
“Sraet and selims” aren’t fun.
“Etah and evol” from the furthest ends…
“Pu and nwod,” all they do is heave to and fro.

Feel this shadow, beckoning you to a reverse world.
Aah…. loathed and resented, the flower of boredom blooms.
Be tied in shackles in the world seen in the mirror!
Come – rant and rave menially and sink into the empty sky!

Left and right, allies and enemies, [3]
Dark and light, white and black,
Water and oil, smiles and tears,
Love and hate, up and down.

Hear my voice, beckoning you to a reverse world.
Aah…. weakness becomes strength, and the flower of malice changes colour.
Become a prisoner in the world seen in the mirror!
Come – let out an uncouth moan and sink into the empty sky!

Translator’s notes

(1) The reverse of each phrase is sung (e.g. ‘right and left’ is sung as ‘left and right.’). For clarity, the translation matches the written lyrics.

(2) Though the original lyrics are written in reverse, they are sung the same as earlier. The translation matches the style of the original lyrics.

(3) Here, the lyrics are sung exactly as written.
