The interesting thing about this track is that it seems to be sung from the perspective of both Renko and Merry, but they’re searching for someone. Perhaps they’re searching for the stars…?


Are the distant stars still shining prettily?
I think about things like that and stare…

My bangs, swaying in the night wind, are just a little ticklish.
The answer is so simple I could laugh.

It’s because after a little time passes
this distance must lessen.

We’re searching for shooting stars.
I want to wish for this story to never end. If my wish will come true, it will last forever
My heart is weightless. It’s good to be free.
I’m waiting! Waiting for the day when you’ll find me…

How far can people advance into the distant space?
In those days, I thought about such things seriously.

(And) distinguished people thought about it, too. (Then,) they derived an answer:
“Without gravity, humans can jump over the stars.”

My strong desires and wishes are granted. They overflow.

We’re searching for signposts.
I want to write down an unwavering tale. If my wish will be granted, I’ll do it forever…
My heart is limitless. It’s good to be carefree.
Wait for me! Wait for the day when I’ll come and get you…

I want to find you…

So come on, let’s look up at the night sky!
I hope our gazes won’t go astray. If you want your dream to come true, don’t give up!
Our hearts will leap over the stars. In the end, they’ll reach you.

We’re searching for shooting stars.
“If only there was no gravity…” Those sorts of excuses won’t take shape anymore!
With my feet on the ground, I’ll start walking now!
I can finally touch you. I found your beautiful radiance!

I overlooked this track during my first listen-through of the album, but I was entranced by it when I heard it for a second time, and it has since become one of my favourites from the album. The bolded lyrics aren’t written in the booklet, but I tried to translate them from ear.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Know, know, know, I wanna know!
Slow, slow, slow, slowly now…
Run, run, run, running through time,
We’ve searched for mysteries.

Know, know, know, I wanna know more!
No, no, no, don’t let go…
Where could the entrance
To that illusory world be?

The moon is full of mysteries.
What colour does it look like to you?
There’s an entrance that I can’t see…
Do I have the proper greeting ready?

When looked at with boring common sense,
That world is cursed.

Look – lots of mysterious friends
Are gathered here.
We’ll make mysterious contact
With this unbalanced world.

Monsters are ordinary here.
God’s laughing, too.
Here, have a chocolate!

Know, know, know, I wanna know!
Slow, slow, slow, slowly now…
Alone, alone, alone, we walk through time.

By just walking, won’t we end up solving
All the universe’s mysteries?
Do rabbits really make mochi?
What’s on the dark side of the moon?

I tried twisting the doorknob
That entranced me. La la…

The night sky is bright.
The round world is sparkling, too. It’s so blue.
Together, we gathered up
The spilt stardust
In my skirt. Aha…

Now,
Let’s hold a ridiculous party
And dance with everyone!
Boring theories aren’t from our world.
This is our story, once we began together.
Afterwards, let’s hold hands
And go to search for more mysteries. Where to next?

Know, know, know, I wanna know!
Slow, slow, slow, slowly now…
Run, run, run, running through time,
We’ve searched for mysteries.

Know, know, know, I wanna know more!
No, no, no, don’t let go…
Where could the entrance
To that illusory world be?

英訳だけです。申し訳ありません。

I made the conscious decision to translate this song in the present tense because I think that’s the best way to convey the claustrophobic atmosphere of the original lyrics. This is the sort of stuff that gets your heart beating, that makes you scared to sleep in the darkness…

As a side note, a Gran Guignol is “a dramatic entertainment of a sensational or horrific nature.” I think that describes this track pretty well!

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Something curious, writhing in the darkness, licks its lips.
Why is it looking this way with such repulsive hopes in mind?
I don’t want to know. I don’t want to see it. Aah!
I fear its twisted gaze. I’m gonna run away!

I feel uneasy. It’s like I’m being pierced with rusty thorns.
A refusal… Slowly… “Let’s pass away together.” I heard a voice.
There’s no going back now.

I can see a dazzling light, but it’s just the flames of life.
Twined-up strings make the marionettes dance.

Before I knew it, I headed toward a line of countless evil spirits, running rampant
Including nyuudou and a pandemonium of creatures! I can’t move.
My shivers seem to rob me of my senses. Aah…
I feel a sense of loss. I run about and scream and shout.

A coarse voice strikes against my eardrums.
A refusal… Slowly… “You look delicious…” I heard a voice.
I couldn’t break the spell.

A dazzling light blanketed my field of view.
This burning pain is the sign of Gran Guignol.

My cloudy breath is close to freezing.
Too late. “Do you want to be at peace?”
“I want to be free!”
I shall take you up on your offer…

I can see a dazzling light, but it’s just the flames of life.
I see twined-up strings and pale marionettes.
A dazzling scarlet covered up my field of view.
I feel the unbearable pain of Gran Guignol. The curtains fall.

This album is great. I love Liz Triangle!

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Thrown into a pristine jungle, we walked.
Believing that intriguing things awaited us, we walked into the unknown…

Though we had high hopes, we were unaware of the camouflaged treasure around us.
Did someone decide that we would just walk through? We couldn’t tell left from right.

The weather was moody and sullen.
The defenceless machinery tested out its wheels. We felt premonitions…

We’ll spread out an ancient map and enjoy the differences between then and now.
Does heaven or hell await us at the place marked with a star? It’s unknown…

It seemed obvious that the hole we dug would have a bottom,
But on this planet, it seemed like we could reach its other side. Everything’s topsy-turvy.

Trapped in an illusion, feeling like we’re falling,
Up and down are all mixed up. We wildly flap our hands.

We have an indefinite, unregistered passport, but whose name should we write in it?
Permanent residency is a sin, and simply observing in defeat is even worse. We can’t tell what’s east or south.

Everything is mysterious and unnatural.
An irrational whistle reverberated and woke something up. A voice echoes.

There’s no time to look back – we’re running through a thorny path.
Does heaven or hell await us at the place marked with a flag? It’s unknown…

With a single tumble, humans were born, and civilization was created.
With a second tumble, humans multiplied and began to fight.
There’s no point in counting the third or fourth
But the fifth tumble hasn’t happened yet…

So, hoisting the map that marks out the modern era, let’s look forward to the future
So the place marked with a star will become paradise.
Piling up all the ancient maps, let’s enjoy the tracks they leave on the present.
If the place marked with a flag represents paradise…. Answer…
