The title could also be translated as ‘Raze’. I think ‘Raise’ is a better fit since the song deals with life and death and what comes after, so I went with that instead.

Unofficial translation/非公式の英訳

The road I’ve lived so far has seemed like a game
and life is like a wild card.
I’m a little worse at using trump cards than people.
Wherever I go, I bow my head.
The pitiful joker is of no use.
You’re unbalanced, and for your sake I send a blue rose.

Because there’s nobody in this world who I can trust completely
I’ll switch off this earthly life’s channel. Farewell.

Wearing a chic red dress
the fragrant rose seems like a placebo.
Even if we’re satisfied and fooled for now, let’s allow it.
Things will continue in a happy dream.

Conspicuous rouge lips
are bullets piercing through the swarming butterflies.
“Just a little more…” the angels and demons laugh, too.
The scales waver.

There’s no reason why anything I should cling to would remain
so let’s go flipping through the thought channels.
The blue rose withers, too.

Stop me from leaving and hug me intimately.
Kiss me skilfully with mischievous lips.
Trump cards should be saved until the end.
Wild card. I’m the joker.

Nobody believes in their heart that life is just a once-only thing.
Let’s cast aside our past and future and enjoy the present!
Isn’t that enough?

All I want is to live while singing, dancing, and smiling.
This world, where all the good-for-nothings just laugh and spend their time,
is still dreaming.
