So, what is ‘ataraxia’? It’s the noun form of ataraxy, which is a state of calmness. Or, if you go by its Wikipedia page, it’s “a lucid state of robust equanimity.”


日常じゃ 足りなくて
輝きを求めていた

nichijou ja tarinakute
kagayaki wo motomete ita

Unsatisfied with the usual stuff,
I searched for something that shone.

いつか(この手で掴む)
なりたい
強い(そして優しい)
理想の私

itsuka (kono te de tsukamu)
naritai
tsuyoi (soshite yasashii)
risou no watashi

I want to (grab hold of it someday)
become
strong (and gentle)—
My ideal self.

透き通る体でも
その想いは掴めるはずと

sukitooru karada demo
sono omoi wa tsukameru hazu to

Even with a transparent body,
I believe I can grasp that wish.

古き本に書かれていた
人の心 今の私とおんなじで
時代は変われども繰り返す願い事と
私は少し大人びた

furuki hon ni kakarete ita
hito no kokoro ima no watashi to onnaji de
jidai wa kawaredomo kurikaesu negaigoto mo
watashi wa sukoshi otonabita

The hearts of humans were written about
In that old book. They’re just like me.
Though the times may change, the same desires reappear.
I grew a bit more mature.

描こう さあ
君だけのアタラクシア
熱さはあれど静かな
君の美しさ見せて

egakou saa
kimi dake no atarakushia
atsusa wa aredo shizuka na
kimi no utsukushisa misete

Now, let’s sketch out
Ataraxia for you alone!
Though you have passion, you are calm.
Show me your beauty!

ただ一点を狙って
進めば辿り着けるさ
自由で君らしい
眩しいところへ

tada itten wo neratte
susumeba tadoritsukeru sa
jiyuu de kimirashii
mabushii tokoro e

If I just aim at a single point
And advance, I’ll arrive eventually.
Free, so like you,
I head for a radiant place.

本だけじゃ 足りなくて
理解よりもその先へ・・・

hon dake ja tarinakute
rikai yori mo sono saki e…

Unsatisfied with books alone,
I head for somewhere further than understanding…

いつか(この手で掴む)
なりたい
強い(そして優しい)
理想の私

itsuka (kono te de tsukamu)
naritai
tsuyoi (soshite yasashii)
risou no watashi

I want to (grab hold of it someday)
become
strong (and gentle)—
My ideal self.

透き通る体でも
この想いは実現させる

sukitooru karada demo
kono omoi wa jitsugen saseru

Even with a transparent body,
I will make my wish come true!

私の歴史を変える
その理 絶対に夢にさせない
繰り返された願いだろうと構わないさ
ここから世界は変わるし

watashi no rekishi wo kaeru
sono kotowari zettai ni yume ni sasenai
kurikaesareta negai darou to kamawanai sa
koko kara sekai wa kawaru shi

I will change my history.
I won’t let that logic become a dream.
I don’t care if my wish has been repeated countless times!
From here, the world will change.

描こう さあ
君だけのアタラクシア
優しく少し強引な
君の芸術見せて

egakou saa
kimi dake no atarakushia
yasashiku sukoshi gouin na
kimi no geijutsu misete

Now, let’s sketch out
Ataraxia for you alone!
Though your art is graceful, it’s a bit pushy.
Show it to me!

ただ一点を狙って
進めば辿り着けるさ
君しか描けない遥かな境地へ

tada itten wo neratte
susumeba tadoritsukeru sa
kimi shika egakenai haruka na kyouchi e

If I just aim at a single point
And advance, I’ll arrive eventually.
I head towards a distant land only you can imagine.
