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.”


歌詞

日常じゃ 足りなくて
輝きを求めていた

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

透き通る体でも
その想いは掴めるはずと

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

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

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

本だけじゃ 足りなくて
理解よりもその先へ・・・

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

透き通る体でも
この想いは実現させる

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

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

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

Translation

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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