歌詞

閉ざした瞳が映し出すひとつの色で
重ねた想いが歪み出す意図せぬ先へ

優しさも裏切りも不確かに揺らめく

覗いた心の果てに光は届かない
恐れの強さに囚われて暗く淀んでく
それでも一筋の陽(ひ)に手を伸ばし続け
弱さを見つめた信実が無数の道を作る

閉ざした瞳が映し出すひとつの色で
気付かぬ内に切り替わってく黒から白へ

ゼロになれぬ心で獣にはなれない

見上げた無限の空は今は何色で
幼い裸の瞳からどれだけざらつく
取り返すことのできぬ不意の罪の中
生き続けて来た醜さが無数の心を編む

それでもいつか
ひとつでもいい
歪む鏡砕き信実への道を作る

優しさも裏切りも不確かでいいから

覗いた心の果てに光は届かない
恐れの強さに囚われて暗く淀んでも
取り返すことのできぬ不意の罪の中
生き続けて来た醜さに夢が歪んでも
微かな一筋の陽(ひ)に手を伸ばし続け
弱さを見つめた信実が無数の道を作る

tozashita me ga utsushi dasu hitotsu no iro de
kasaneta omoi ga yugami dasu ito senu saki e

yasashisa mo uragiri mo futashika ni yurameku

nozoita kokoro no hate ni hikari wa todokanai
osore no tsuyosa ni torawarete kuraku yodondeku
sore demo hitosuji no hi ni te o nobashi tsudzuke
yowasa o mitsumeta shinjitsu ga musuu no michi o tsukuru

tozashita me ga utsushi dasu hitotsu no iro de
kidzukanu uchi ni kirikawatteku kuro kara shiro e

zero ni narenu kokoro de kemoni ni wa narenai

miageta mugen no sora wa iro wa naniiro de
osanai hadaka no me kara dore dake zaratsuku
torikaesu koto no dekinu fui no tsumi no naka
iki tsudzukete kita minukusa ga musuu no kokoro o amu

sore demo itsuka

yugamu kagami kudaki shinjitsu e no michi o tsukuru

yasashisa mo uragiri mo futashika de ii kara

osore no tsuyosa ni torawarete kuraku yodondemo
torikaesu koto no dekinu fui no tsumi no naka
iki tsudzukete kita minukusa ni yume ga yugandemo
wazuka na hitosuji ni hi ni te o nobashi tsudzuke
yowasa o mitsumeta shinjitsu ga musuu no michi o tsukuru

Translation

My closed eyes see only a single colour
and my feelings start to bend more than I intended.

Kindness and betrayal flicker.

I looked into my heart. Light doesn’t reach its edges.
Trapped by the strength of my fear, things darken and stagnate.
And yet, I keep reaching for a beam of sunlight.
Sincerity born from facing weakness creates infinite paths.

My closed eyes see only a single colour
I didn’t notice it changing from black to white.

With a heart that won’t zero out, I can’t even become a monster.

What colour is the infinite sky I look up at?
And how common does it look through my young, naked eyes?
I am among a sudden sin that can’t be taken back.
The ugliness of continuing to live weaves many hearts together.

And yet someday,
even if it’s a single one,
I will break a warped mirror and create a path to truth.

I’m fine with kindness and betrayal remaining uncertain.

I looked into my heart. Light doesn’t reach its edges
and though I’m trapped by the strength of my fear and things darken and stagnate—
I am among a sudden sin that can’t be taken back
and though my dreams are warped by the ugliness of continuing to live—
I keep reaching for a beam of sunlight.
Sincerity born from facing weakness creates infinite paths.
