Vocals: IZNA
Lyrics: IZNA
Arranged by: NSY
Album: 絶望的協奏曲 (Hopeless Concerto) [Official site]
Circle: 東方事変 (touhoujihen)
Event: C93
Original theme: Diao ye zong (Withered Leaf) [ティアオイエツォン(withered leaf)]

Requested by: ninreaper

Like a lot of other tracks by this circle, this one seems to be about a hopeless relationship. They go through the motions, but it doesn’t look like anything positive will come from it. Still, IZNA’s voice is great like always, and I like the way NSY approached this theme.

I went with ‘Hopeless Discord’ for 絶望的不協和音, so I went with ‘Hopeless Concerto’ for 絶望的協奏曲.


歌詞

Radio, please!
I want to listen to music.
お願い、please!
Just give me something new one.

僕は望んでいた あの日見てた世界を
何も変わらないままで
僕は探していた 顔や体(てい)の良い素材
never ending 演じて、そう

聴いて初めての音

眠らない夜の海を この身一つで泳いでいく
不安とか主体も
受け止めてあげていいんじゃない?

愛情よりも切なくて、この胸を焦がす
得体の知れない想いをふつふつと湧かせど
最高潮の悦楽で、己を誤魔化す以外の
悪いね 方法が見つからないの

君が残していく 色や人の香りは
綺麗でそりゃ鮮やかで
僕は見つめてる 瞳 逸らすことなく
every one-night 終わらない章

二人鏡の中の

何も無い窓の外を 並んでただ眺めていたの
時報(アラーム)が鳴っても
誰の声すらも届かない

最上階の端っこから この背中を押す
世界のIKENAI秘密をひっそりと知るけど
もう後悔の連続で always残らず痛いよ
歩いて 誰かに試されているみたい

Radio, please!
I want to listen to music.
お願い、please!
Just give me something new one.

静寂を切り裂く正確なhigh-tone
鋭角なATARIに驚きのあまり
透明なscreenが映し出していた
そう、まるで君はDiva 僕には届かない

最上階の端っこから この背中を押す
世界のIKENAI秘密をひっそりと知るけど
言い逃れして今日も街がalways夕日に染まるの
ultimate 誰かに導かれてるみたい

Radio, please!
I want to listen to music.
お願い、please!
Just give me something new one.

Romanisation

Radio, please!

Translation

Radio, please!
I want to listen to music.
I beg you, please!
Just give me something: a new one.

I hoped that the world I looked upon back then
would never change.
I was searching for good materials for my face and form.
It’s like a never-ending performance.

I heard that sound for the first time.

I’ll swim through the sea of a sleepless night using my body alone.
Isn’t it okay
if I accept doubt and the core of things?

This feeling is more painful than love. It burns my heart
and makes something unknown bubble and well up inside me.
Still, I deceive you through the pleasure of climax.
Sorry – I can’t find any other way.

You leave behind colours and a human scent.
They’re so beautiful, so vivid.
I’m staring now, without turning my eyes away.
Every one night is an endless chapter. (1)

We’re inside the mirror.

I stood by the window and gazed out at the emptiness.
The alarm rings
but nobody’s voice will reach me now.

You push me from the edge of the top floor
though I quietly know this world’s forbidden secrets.
I keep feeling remorse, and it’s always painful.
I walk. It’s like I’m being tested by someone.

Radio, please!
I want to listen to music.
I beg you, please!
Just give me something: a new one.

Your accurate high tones tore through the silence.
I reached the corner, and to my surprise
you were there on the clear screen.
Yes, you’re like a diva. I won’t reach you.

You push me from the edge of the top floor
though I quietly know this world’s forbidden secrets.
I talk myself out of it, but the streets are always stained with dusk’s colours.
Ultimate. It’s like I’m being led by someone.

Radio, please!
I want to listen to music.
I beg you, please!
Just give me something: a new one.


Translator’s note

(1) 終わらない章 (owaranai shou) is sung the same as ‘One night show’.
