Requested by: Stella Mira

There are some parts in quotation marks – those parts are sung by the other vocalist and aren’t necessarily linked to what comes before or after. It was quite tough to format…


今この空へ飛び立つ夢の胡蝶 透けて消える前に
来世へ願いを翼に漂わせ 現世の先を目指して

ima kono sora e tobitatsu yume no kochou sukete kieru mae ni
asu e no negai o tsubasa ni tadayowase utsushiyo no saki wo mezashite

Now, the dream butterfly takes off, heading towards the sky before it vanishes.
I set my wishes for the afterlife loose with wings, aiming beyond the present world.

解けてゆく<この心が>器の中から放たれ

hodokete yuku <kono kokoro> utsuwa no naka kara hanatare

“My heart” comes undone. It’s freed from its vessel.

その色が<魂が>美しく<鮮やかに>
染まる様<輝くと>導こう<今願う>天へと

sono iro ga <tamashii ga> utsukushiku <azayaka ni>
somaruyou <kagayaku to> michibikou <ima negau> sora e to

That colour “my soul” is so beautiful “so vivid.”
It seems to colour me. “Sparkling.” I will show you the way, “now I wish.” to heaven!

揺れる心の隙間に芽生えた その黒い影を消し

yureru kokoro no sukima ni mebaeta sono kuroi kage o keshi

I erase those black shadows, which sprouted in the cracks in my unstable heart.

紅く野性は燃えて 白く理性包め
魂の輝きを<輝く時に>解き放て今こそ

akaku yasei wa moete shiroku risei tsutsume
tamashii no kagayaki o <kagayaku toki ni> toki hanate ima koso

The wild growth burns scarlet, embracing my white reason.
Now is the time “time to shine” to release my soul’s radiance.

舞い踊れ鮮やかな二色の胡蝶 穢れゆく御霊を天へ返して
迸れ怒り狂う神の息吹 全ての存在を闇に返して

mai odore azayaka na niiru no kochou kegare yuku mitama o sora e kaeshite
hotobashire ikari kuruu kami no ibuki subete no sonzai o yami e kaeshite

Dance, dichromatic butterfly! Return disgraced souls to heaven.
The breath of the mad god surges forth, returning everything to darkness.

たちむかうことを諦めるには
まだ日は高くて きっと

tachimukau koto o akirameru ni wa
mada hi wa takakute kitto

The sun’s still too high in the sky
for me to give up on my fight.

紅く生まれるのなら 白く地へ帰ろう
魂は輪廻して<輪廻の時に>いずれまた輝く

akaku umareru no nara shiroku chi e to kaerou
tamashii wa rinne shite <rinne no toki ni> izure mata kagayaku

If I am born coloured red, then I shall return to the earth coloured white.
Souls go through that cycle. “Through the cycle of time” They will eventually shine again.

舞い上がれ鮮やかな二色の胡蝶
麗しき御霊を力に変えて

mai agare azayaka na niiru no kochou
uruwashiki mitama o chikara ni kaete

Fly high, brilliant dichromatic butterfly!
Turn those beautiful spirits into strength.

あるべき場所<あの楽園へ>輪廻の向こうへ
この祈りがただ届くと信じて

aru beki basho <ano rakuen e> rinne no mukou e
kono inori ga tada todoku to shinjite

I send my prayers to that ideal land “to that paradise” somewhere beyond life and death.
I believe that they will reach you.

また微かに消えてゆく儚き蝶 今は空を見上げ
姿を変えこの現世で再び いつの日か出逢えるのだろう

mata kasuka ni kiete yuku hakanaki chou ima wa sora o miage
sugata o kae kono utsushiyo de futatabi itsu no hi ka deaeru no darou

The short-lived butterfly weakly vanishes. Now, I look up at the sky.
I wonder if its form will change and we will meet again in this transient world…

舞い上がれ鮮やかな二色の胡蝶 麗しき御霊を力に変えて
迸れ夢哀れむ神の息吹 全ての存在を光に変えて

mai agare azayaka na niiru no kochou uruwashiki mitama wo chikara ni kaete
hotobashire yume awaremu kami no ibuki subete no sonzai o hikari ni kaete

Fly high, brilliant dichromatic butterfly! Turn those beautiful spirits into strength.
The breath of god who pities dreams surges forth, transforming everything to light.
