We’ve got a couple of references to historical figures here. Some, like Christopher Columbus and Abraham Lincoln, are easy to spot. Others are a bit more obscure.


キラキラ星に 宿った正義のもと
ひらひらはためかせて闇へ誘うの
キラキラ光る 真実はどこへ向かうの
ひらひらはためかせて闇へ誘うの

kira kira boshi ni yadotta seigi no moto

kira kira hikaru shinjitsu wa doko e mukau no
hira hira hatamekasete yami e izanau no

In the name of the justice that rests in this shining star,
I wave my flag and invite you into the darkness.
Where did shining truth go?
I wave my flag and invite you into the darkness.

Dive to red.
I head to where Columbus’ compass points.
Now, dive to blue.
On this night, pipe-smoking Gandhi fires nuclear weapons on the front lines. (1)

This inescapable world is a hell where you smile while crying.
Is this unavoidable madness me? Or is it you? Crazy you.

In the name of the courage that rests in these stripes,
I wave my flag and invite the light.
These stripes are contrary to malice and my heart.
I wave my flag and invite the light.

On this night, we build a military island, reclaiming the sea Lassen painted. (2)

(非公式の)英訳だけです。申し訳ありません。

I missed translating azuki’s lyrics. They cram so much detail into such a small space.


Jackknife. A rabbit flies in the sky.
Because it’s all over, they commit friendly fire.
Even butterflies are in the moonlit night sky
dancing their clumsy dance.
Here, I am a maiden too.

Red eyes and white skin
blend together and commit friendly fire.
It’s a tragedy, so please shed tears.
Your cry, all teary eyed,
and mentally stick out your parched tongue.

I am unstoppable
with my weightless strategy.
You fell in love (look!)
and now I’ll launch you to the moon.
(Lai lai lai lai…)

Jackknife. A rabbit flies in the sky.
Because it’s all over, they commit friendly fire.
In the slightly undulating sky,
The moon appears and disappears. Hello, hello!

I raise my red flag and wave my white one. (1)
They mix together and commit friendly fire.
What a splendid greeting. I love it! (2)
My vision swims round and round.
I shake off my doubts and go ahead.

I am unstoppable
with my orbital strategy.
You lost to love (look!)
And now I’ll shoot you to the moon!

Ah… This world is a parallel world.
It’s a dream within a dream.
The sweet, sweet pine bomb is such a cutie. (3)
I can hardly discern its aftertaste.
Because I’m advancing carefreely,
The response is “Aye aye, sir!”
Now we’re on the front lines.
Advance without hesitating at once!

In this dream, I am merely lost.
In this dream, I merely sleep.

I am unstoppable
with my orbital strategy.
Aiming beyond my love,
I’ll pass through the stratosphere.

That’s right—this world is a parallel world.
It’s a dream within a dream.
I lock on with this sweet, sweet pine bomb
I can hardly discern its aftertaste.
Because I’m advancing rhythmically,
The answer is vague? Really? (4)
Now we’re on the front lines.
We lose our way and do the same things over and over…

This world is pastel-coloured
I dream within a dream.
Now, we’re on the cutting edge.
Let’s advance to the moon without hesitating.
O, those with the hearts of maidens! Advance!


(1) This is a reference to a Japanese game similar to Simon Says. For more information, see this site (in Japanese)
(2) The enunciation of ‘I love it’ (or アイラビット – ai rabitto) resembles ‘Rabbit’.
(3) A Google search for ‘パインボム’ (pain bomu) was inconclusive, leading only to a type of cocktail. It is possible that this could be a reference to grenades, which look a little like pineapples.
(4) The enunciation of 曖昧?さぁ? (aiai? saa?) is the same as ‘Aye aye, sir!’.

Update [12/12/2017]: Minor change to chorus [fixing 彼方]

This track’s intimidating because of how long the lyrics are, but it all flows together quite well. There’s one or two sections where single letters are used instead of proper words. my interpretations of these are directly next to them in brackets.

The final line is an extra line that appears in the ‘original’ (non-Touhou) version of this song. Watch the official video here.

(Also, this sounds a lot like Dreamy Noise and I really want to hear Yuu Kanade sing it.)


何故禁断の果実は美味なのか 短い時間で芯まで齧った
悴んだ時間は未だ止まったまま 蟠りは凝固し慢性痛を生む
縦横無尽に体を覆う呪縛
ムーンウォーク 藻掻く程遠ざかる
気持ちの行き場失くした為 泣く泣く認める 文房具
因果律は自業自得と既に答えの出た
自問自答みたいな問答は間違いを招くだけだ ダイヤモンド 砕けた
賑わう街に散り散りばらばらに降り注ぐクリスタル街を彩れば 疼くスティグマータ
疑問が尽きるなら 明日はgood day 夢 夢見よう

naze kindan no kajitsu wa bimi nanoka mijikai jikan de shin made kajitta

gimon ga tsukiru nara asu wa good day yume yume miyou

Why does forbidden fruit taste so delicious? In just a few short moments, I munched it to the core.
Numb time remains stopped. My worries freeze and deliver chronic pain
Curses freely cover my body.
Moon walk. I get further away the more I struggle.
Because I lost a place for my feelings to go, I cry and cry and write it up with stationery.
The law of cause and effect is karma. That answer has already appeared.
Answering my own questions will only lead to misunderstandings! The diamond crumbled.
When its crystals, scattering down upon the busy town, colour it, the stigmata will throb.
If my doubts have been exhausted, tomorrow will be a good day. I shall dream.

今夢にまで見た夢に手が届きそうだから
難しいこと 全部払拭したいのにあの日の言葉離れない

moufu no naka ni kotae wa nai you na ki wa suru kedo

Now, it looks like my hands can reach the dream within my dream
So though I want to sweep away everything difficult, words from that day won’t go away.
Swaying, swaying… just the two of us. What I want must be over there
Though I feel like an answer won’t come to me in my blanket.

非現実だったら忌わしい敵も居ないし

If this isn’t reality, then unpleasant foes shouldn’t be here.
For now, I cruise about arbitrarily. It’s a stay of execution
Among an equation I once created myself
I hand my problems around. Surely, then,
I’ll end up in the same spot after circling around a one-way Moebius strip.
This is a self-contradiction without self-sufficiency.
Groping around in the dark, I go to that promised place.
The never-ending story I saw in my dream
Is nothing but an accumulated registry.
It’s just a weird, convenient escape from reality
But the lead of my pencil keeps decreasing.
Why live while suffering? I lost the key.
Are the Q(Questions) that float in my mind every morning needless anxiety?
If so…

俺は生意気に生きる
アスファルト蹴る
向かい風を切る

ore wa namaiki ni ikiru

mukaikaze wo kiru

I’ll live brazenly.
I kick off the asphalt
And cut through the headwind.

In this dream, it looks like my hands can reach the dream within my dream.
The Friday night seared into my eyelids is a memory, coloured by me, that I’ll never forget.
Getting wet, getting wet… just the two of us. What I want must be over there
No matter what I do, no matter who I’m with, I will never forget that.

Why live while suffering? I lost the key.
I search for A(Answers) to the Q(Questions) floating in my mind when I wake up.
I’ll live brazenly. I kick off the asphalt
And cut through the headwind. All I need is kill. I cut my finger
But I’m still weak. Still lacking.
This unique chance won’t come again.
I grab some straw, which must be a trap.
I wanna change your mind (my dream won’t come true.)
There aren’t that many lives out there that’ll be rewarded.
People call it karma
But as if I understand that! It can all go to hell!
People don’t always have just one answer.
I’ll live while suffering. I found my key.
I replace the Q(Questions) in my head every morning with U(You).
I’ll live brazenly. I kick off the asphalt
And cut through the headwind. All I need is kill. I cut your finger.

In some sections, the English equivalent is sung instead of the Japanese word. The romanisation is written out as if the words were written in katakana. For a change, I decided to note this in bold.


出逢いは些々たる物語

Our first meeting is such a trivial story.
Our eyes suddenly met.

出逢ってものの数秒で

Several seconds after,
I sensed a simple trap.

I’ll show you that I can change this night in just a few seconds, so close your eyes…

Now—

Mid-night 運んで移ろうこの身を何処へでも

Midnight. Carry this body of mine away, I don’t care where.
Spit out words so naive they make me lost in lust.
Goodnight. Sorry for distorting your purity tonight…
Look, we’re connected.
I want you to make me feel your heartbeat inside me.

A tragic catastrophe.
I can sense that now, too.

Everyone’s gifted with all kinds of proofs.
Goodnight. You’re hot, and your heart’s throbbing. I wanna touch you.
I don’t want to finish up…
That’s just being manipulated by empty theories.

(非公式の)英訳だけです。申し訳ありません。

The title literally means ‘The Flowers of Words’, but it also appears to be a set phrase used to refer to beautifully decorated words. For once, there’s actually a word in English that can convey both meanings – florid.

Putting that aside, just another reminder that I love azuki’s lyrics.


With just a little error, I head in the opposite direction.
I’m not listening at all. Right? Left?
I tell my excuses: “But…” Yet I can’t ask “Why?”
Blessings circulate. I spin and get dizzy.
My eyes spin, and even my tongue spins, too.

With just a little blunder, regret blocks the road.
I advance and change course without going anywhere.
Circulating and selected, even the words that come from my mouth glide about.

I pull in mischievous feelings.
Look at me as I really am! Just kidding!

Hidden beneath the words the world envied
Were a pinch of scattered flowers, which bloomed in the sun.
So everyone in the world will become happy,
They will bear everyone’s wishes and fly in the sky, straight ahead.

By being just a little out-of-place, I’m surrounded by animosity.
Are you paying attention? From right to left.
If I’m gonna be called selfish, can’t I do what I want?
In other words, it’s all contrary. Full stop. (1)

Though I pursue questions, something’s wrong
So I feign ignorance. The telepathic lines are frayed. (2)
I go round and haul them in. The truth I reeled in is very bitter.

I link together scattered emotions.
Look at me as I really am! Just kidding.

The colours of the figures of speech turned the world inside out.
They are beautiful red spider lilies, which I cruelly picked.
Everyone in the world spends too much time thinking.
They continue to search and take dramatic journeys.

I shoot out my sealed emotions.
My thoughts are always in the future, more than the present or the past.
I aimed for yesterday. Now, I begin walking towards tomorrow.

The words, a shadow of their former selves, enfolded the whole world.
Are they good or bad? Hey, don’t decide that by yourself!
Even shooting stars will someday stop moving. They’ll just fall.

It’s wrong to say that the words the world envied
Had only a single layer beneath the surface.
If everyone in the world has become happy,
Then I’ll fly in the sky, where everyone’s wishes are.
I’m set on aiming backwards…


(1) In the lyrics, this line ends with a full stop (。), which is vocalised as ‘maru.’
(2) The original text uses the word 伝心伝線 (denshin densen). The first half is likely a shortened form of 以心伝心 (ishin denshin), referring to how in Buddhist beliefs, words pass from a master to their student spiritually. The second half (伝線 – densen) refers to frays or runs that develop in stockings.

The two of us are rough
Without any hopes…

Unexpected things
Happen every day.

Etiquette, or things like that,
Have long since faded away.
There’s no sign of any problems.
Our shameless bond is just embarrassing
Because it’s a part of each day.

Though the hours are quiet, I don’t think they’re boring.
When we get hungry,
We’ll just go somewhere.
We end up talking
About serious dreams we’ve had
And I can talk to you
About things I can’t tell anyone else.

We lent things so many times
We can no longer tell
What belongs to whom.
Well, I’m not worried about it.

yuujou no hate ni aru satori no kyouchi

We don’t have arguments or fights anymore.
This freedom, different to apathy,
Is a state of mind that lies at the edge of friendship.
Even if nobody understands, it’s alright.

賑やかすぎるのも たまにはいい気はする
でもさ、ちょっと恋しいな 少し狭い部屋が

Being a bit too rowdy feels good every now and again
But I’m quite fond of my confined room.

It isn’t fun, or anything like that.
It’s just comfortable.
We sometimes get stuck in a rut, too
But who cares?

たまに悲しいこと お互いあったりもする

Sad things sometimes happen to the two of us.
I won’t comfort you, but I don’t want you to be alone.

And I can talk to you about things I can’t tell anyone else.

Requested by: Roboscape


曖昧な未来 向き合うのが怖くて 瞼伏せた
弾丸を込めて 浅い眠りに帰る 目覚ましはかけずに

aimai na mirai mukiau no ga kowakute mabuta fuseta
dangan wo komete asai nemuri ni kaeru mezamashi wa kakezu ni

I closed my eyes, afraid of facing an uncertain future.
I’ll load my bullets and return to my shallow sleep. I won’t set an alarm clock.

通り過ぎる 数え切れない幼い夢
もう叶わないのなら
いま私が抱きしめるから

toorisugiru kazoe kirenai osanai yume
mou kamawanai no nara
ima watashi ga dakishimeru kara

I pass through countless childish dreams.
If they won’t come true,
Then since I’m embracing them now…

砂嵐を超えて 飛ぶ翼たち
どこへ何を届けに行くのだろう
血の色みたい あの空の雲
涙流すだけのワタシ二サヨナラ

sunaarashi wo koete tobu tsubasa-tachi
doko e nani wo todoke ni yuku no darou
chi no iro mitai ano sora no kumo
namida nagasu dake no watashi ni sayonara

Flying wings cross over a sandstorm.
I wonder where they’re going, and what tidings they bear…
The clouds in the blood-coloured sky
Bid farewell to me. All I did was cry.

綻びだらけの自由は相変わらず 風に吹かれ
咲くこともできず岸辺に散る蕾は 幻でさえない

hokorobi darake no jiyuu wa aikawarazu kaze ni fukare
saku koto mo dekizu kishibe ni chiru tsubomi wa maboroshi de sae nai

The freedom of the buds is, of course, full of torn seams. Blown away by the wind,
They fall along the bank without blooming. They aren’t even an illusion.

遠くどこか 幸せになれると夢見て
もう帰れないのなら
いま私に何ができるの

tooku dokoka shiawase ni nareru to yume mite
mou kaerenai no nara
ima watashi ni nani ga dekiru no

I dream that I can be happy in some distant place.
If I can no longer return,
Then what can I do now?

藍い月の裏へ旅立つ人を
冷たく速く時間は飲み込む
振り付けのない日々は過ぎてく
忘れようとしてたワタシ二サヨナラ

ai tsuki no ura e tabidatsu hito wo
tsumetaku hayaku jikan wa nomikomu
furitsuke no nai hibi wa sugiteku
wasureyou to shiteta watashi ni sayonara

For the traveller aiming to the indigo moon’s other side,
Time is swallowed up coldly, quickly.
Unchoreographed days pass by
Bidding farewell to me, as I sought to forget…

ねえ
細切れの夢を繋げていつか広げてみよう

nee
komagire no yume wo tsunagete itsuka hirogete miyou

Hey…
I’ll gather up the fragments of my dreams and unfold them someday.

果てしない未来を始めるために
どんな旗にも邪魔させはしない
あたらしい約束あたらしい夢
あたらしい私でワタシ二サヨナラ

hate shinai mirai wo hajimeru tame ni
donna hata nimo jama sase wa shinai
atarashii yakusoku atarashii yume
atarashii watashi de watashi ni sayonara

So I can begin an everlasting future,
I won’t let anyone get in my way, no matter what flag they bear.
New promises. New dreams.
A new me. I’ll bid farewell to myself…

Magic Lantern Flowers

Vocals: Alilem (アリレム)
Lyrics: Alilem (アリレム)
Arranged by: Coro
Album: LiFESICK 【Official Site】
Circle: TAMAONSEN (魂音泉)
Event: C89
Original Themes: Oriental Dark Flight [オリエンタルダークフライト]

Requested by: Rachel Lee

Though translating TAMAONSEN’s stuff is rewarding, it always offers up its own unique challenges. This song was particular tough, since I couldn’t quite string together an overarching story. The speaker is definitely comparing the one they love to a flower, but after that it seems to transition into some sort of stream-of-consciousness narrative… I’d be interested to hear what you think of it, so feel free to leave a comment!

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

吹き抜ける風の向こう側 とうに忘れた景色がオーバーラップ
放っておいてくれ 放っておいてくれって何回 頼んでも
どうか咲き誇りますように だけど枯れてきたラストシーン
いつまでも待ってくれたキミに水をやれなかった

fukinukeru kaze no mukougawa tou ni wasureta keshiki ga oobaarappu
hotte oite kure hotte oite kure tte nankai tanondemo
douka sakihokorimasu you ni dakedo karete kita rasuto shiin
itsu made mo matte kureta kimi ni mizu wo yarenakatta

A landscape I had long forgotten about overlapped with where the wind blew.
Leave me alone. Leave me alone! No matter how many times I asked,
I prayed for my flower to bloom. Still, it ended up withering at the last scene.
You were always waiting for me, but I didn’t water you.

気が付いたら いなくなってくれるかと思えば甘い香りで誘い出して
棘の数は増すばかりなのに傷付く度に刻み付けたり
また後悔 もうどうしようもないな
そうやってただ日が暮れるまで語り掛ける本当の言葉

ki ga tsuitara inaku natte kureru ka to omoeba amai kaori de sasoi dashite
toge no kazu wa masu bakari nanoni kizutsuku tabi ni kizami tsuketari
mata koukai mou dou shiyou mo nai na
sou yatte tada hi ga kureru made katari kakeru hontou no kotoba

I realised that when I wondered if you’d leave me alone, you lured me in with a sweet scent.
My thorns kept increasing, but each time I wounded you, you’d be carved into me.
I feel remorseful, but there’s nothing I can do about it now.
Like that, I just speak until the sun goes down, saying nothing but the truth.

来た道戻れば草木が嗤い 下向けば籠り歌にならない
無駄に高いプライドで咳払い 話題は大体他愛もないプランで
足場なら不安定 崩れ落ちる瞬間に観念
なんでって問い 肩透かすから進展無し 知らねえよの一点張り

kita michi modoreba kusaki ga warai shitamukeba komori uta ni naranai
muda ni takai puraido de sekibarai wadai wa daitai tawai mo nai puran de
ashiba nara fuantei kuzure ochiru shunkan ni kannen
nande tte toi kata sukasu kara shinten nashi shiranee yo no ittenbari

If I turn back, the plants will sneer. If I look down, my song won’t protect anyone.
I cough uselessly, feeling so prideful. The subject is basically a childish plan
And I have no firm foothold. When it crumbles away, I’ll accept it.
But why? I’m avoiding the question, so I’m stuck. I stick to the same story: I don’t know.

現状はどうだ 架け橋が無いと渡れないと我儘だらけ
結局はそうか 飛び越えた者に湧く感情はどうやら黒く
それはやがて網膜に焼き付いて 臆病の根も足に巻き付いて
キミがどんな色で咲いていたのかも忘れる

genjou wa dou da kakehashi ga nai to watarenai to wagamama darake
kekkyoku wa sou ka tobikoeta mono ni waku kanjou wa dou yara kuroku
sore wa yagate moumaku ni yakitsuite okubyou no ne mo ashi ni makitsuite
kimi ga donna iro de saite ita no kamo wasureru

What’s the situation like now? They’re just selfish. They can’t cross without bridges.
Is that how it ends up? The emotions of those who crossed over seem dark.
In the end, that was burned into my eyes. The roots and feet of cowardice twined around me.
I forgot all about what colour you were when you bloomed.

夢で終わらぬ旅の定めは 水面に浮かぶ花弁の如く
いつだって ただ描いて 破り棄てたのだろう
咲かない花だと隠すように
胸で焦がれたあの美しさ 全て幻と目を伏せてた
もう灰になっても 灰になっても 灰になっても構わないから
その花の名を飾ろう

yume de owaranu tabi no sadame wa minamo ni ukabu hanabira no gotoku
itsu datte tada egaite yaburi suteta no darou
sakanai hana da to kakusu you ni
mune de kogareta ano utsukushisa subete maboroshi to me wo fuseteta
mou hai ni nattemo hai ni nattemo hai ni nattemo kamawanai kara
sono hana no na wo kazarou

The fate of my journey, which continues in my dreams, is like a petal floating on a lake.
I just picture it in my mind—I wonder if it was torn off and thrown away
So someone could pretend that its flower couldn’t bloom.
I yearned for that beauty and cast my eyes down, thinking it was all an illusion.
Even if I turn to ash, I don’t care.
I’ll decorate the name of that flower.

現状 まだ辛抱
その代わり足りぬあと一歩
撒かれた種の成長
咲く場所はどこだろう
アスファルト 笑われる雑草
だが誰よりも満たされた表情

genjou mada shinbou
sono kawari tarinu ato ippo
makareta tane no seichou
saku basho wa doko darou
asufaruto warawareru zassou
daga dare yori mo mitasareta hyoujou

I’m still patient.
But I’m missing just one last step instead.
I want to see how the seeds I scattered are growing
But where are they blooming?
Asphalt is all around. I’m laughed at by the weeds.
But I seemed more fulfilled than anyone else.

聞いてくれ 道端の名も知らぬ者
蓋したって煮え滾って釀し出す本能が
とうとう喉元から暴走し本性曝け出して
制御出来ぬかも知らぬ状況
一時の財産で人生を決めるか?
反吐が出るくらいの「やめとけ」って言葉 知ったことか
待った まだ待った そればっかだった頃
だからいつの間にか零れ落ちてったバックパッカー

kite kure michibata no na mo shiranu mono
futa shitatte nietagitte kamoshidasu honnou ga
tou tou nodomoto kara bousou shi honshou sarakedashite
seihyo dekinu kamo shiranu joukyou
hitotoki no zaisan de jinsei wo kimeru ka?
hedo ga deru kurai no “yametoke” tte kotoba shitta koto ka
matta mada matta sore bakka datta koro
dakara itsu no ma ni ka kobore ochite tta bakkupakkaa

Listen, one who knows not the name of the roadside:
Your instincts boil forth, though you put a lid on them
And now, your true nature is exposed, running wild from your throat.
I guess you just can’t control it anymore.
Is life determined by one’s former fortunes?
“Stop it!” I have nothing to do with those nauseating words.
I waited and waited. That’s all I did back then.
So before I knew it, that backpacker spilled forth from me.

時間が経ったせいか蜜のような劇薬
狂気染みた性格で企んだ計画
花壇の中で咲いた素晴らしき集団も
そこに立った瞬間に自分だけが死んでた
机上の有権者 理解出来ぬクーデター
投げる言葉全部差し戻されてブーメラン
どうやら犠牲が無けりゃ覚悟すらも出来なかったようだ

jikan ga tatta sei ka mitsu no you na gekiyaku
kyouki shimita seikaku de takuranda keikaku
kadan no naka de saita subarashiki shuudan mo
soko ni tatta shunkan ni jibun dake ga shindeta
kijou no yuukensha rikai dekinu kuudetaa
nageru kotoba zenbu sashimodosarete buumeran
dou yara gisei ga nakerya kakugo sura mo dekinakatta you da

This powerful medicine is like honey. Is it because time has passed by?
Those plans were drawn up by a madman.
A magnificent group bloomed in the flowerbed
But when I stood in there, I was the only one who died.
Academic voters couldn’t understand the coup d’état.
All the words they threw out were returned, like a boomerang.
It seems like they weren’t even prepared unless there were casualties.

夢で終わらぬ旅の定めは 水面に浮かぶ花弁の如く

ゆらりゆらり揺れる流れ 定まらぬ様を趣だと
波の仕草に纏われて 優雅に舞う それだけで良い

yurari yurari yureru nagare sadamaranu sama wo omomuki da to
nami no shigusa ni matowarete yuuga ni mau sore dake de ii

Since the river flows this way and that, it means that its destination isn’t fixed.
Dressed in the movement of the waves, dancing gracefully… that’s all I want.

夢で終わらぬ旅の定めは 水面に浮かぶ花弁の如く

伝える 繋がる 色の無い月に
言葉は いらない 感じとれればいい

tsutaeru tsunagaru iro no nai tsuki ni
kotoba wa iranai kanjitorereba ii

I speak to you, and we’re tied together on this colourless moon.
We don’t need words as long as you can sense it…

幻と 戯れて 跳ねる 淡い月の光の下で
眼差しは まるで夢のよう 現実の狭間で 揺れて

maboroshi to tawamurete haneru awai tsuki no hikari no shita de
manazashi wa marude yume no you genjitsu no hazama de yurete

Playing with illusions and leaping beneath the faint moonlight,
Everything before me seemed like a dream, swaying in reality’s threshold.

さあおいで 新しい世界の扉を開け放つ 時間が来てる
金色に そして銀色に滲む 未だ見ぬ世界の NAVIGATOR

saa oide atarashii sekai no tobira wo akehanatsu jikan ga kiteru
kin’iro ni soshite gin’iro ni nijimu mada minu sekai no NAVIGATOR

Now, come this way. I’ll throw open the door to a new world. The time has come.
Gold and silver runs through this unseen world. I am its navigator.

季節はずれ 黄金色の風 (数えた 夢に落ちる涙)
独り 忘れられたままの 夢 (どこまでも曖昧な涙)
遠い君が 迷わないように
サインを送るよ 歪む 月の下で (今すぐ君へ届くように)

kisetsu hazure koganeiro no kaze (kazoeta yume ni ochiru namida)
hitori wasurerareta mama no yume (doko made mo aimai na namida)
tooi kimi ga mayowanai you ni
sain wo okuru yo yugamu tsuki no shita de (ima sugu kimi e todoku you ni)

The golden breeze blows, out of season. (I counted the tears falling into my dreams.)
In my dream, I have been left alone. (My tears are so vague…)
So you, in the distance, won’t go astray,
I’ll send you a sign beneath the distorted moon. (I pray it will reach you immediately.)

すれ違う 想いに 震えてる月に
言葉は 映せない 欠けていくばかり

surechigau omoi ni furueteru tsuki ni
kotoba wa utsusenai kakete iku bakari

Our words are not cast down upon the trembling moon
Or our thoughts, passing by each other. They just break away…

幻は 幻を超えて 淡い月の光を浴びて
いたずらに 時を重ねては  忘れ物をまた増やして

maboroshi wa maboroshi wo koete awai tsuki no hikari wo abite
itazura ni toki wo kasanete wa wasuremono wo mata fuyashite

Illusions cross over illusions, and bathe in pale moonlight.
I keep wasting time, and the things I have forgotten increase.

さあおいで 嘘だらけの安寧に 微睡む時間に導かれて
金色に 時に赤色に染まる 壊れた世界の NAVIGATOR

saa oide uso darake no an’nei ni madoromu jikan ni michibikarete
kin’iro ni toki ni akairo ni somaru kowareta sekai no NAVIGATOR

Now, come! While dozing in a false peace, I am led away.
This world is sometimes dyed gold, sometimes dyed red. I am its navigator.

季節を 越えた先へ消えていく (数えた 愛に落ちる涙)
朽ちた 思い出を越えた先で (重ねていく 嘘色の刃)
遠い君が 迷わないように
サインを送るよ 透けた 月の下で (今すぐ君へ届くように)

kisetsu wo koeta saki e kiete iku (kazoeta ai ni ochiru namida)
kuchita omoide wo koeta saki de (kasanete iku usoiro no yaiba)
tooi kimi ga mayowanai you ni
sain wo okuru yo suketa tsuki no shita de (ima sugu kimi e todoku you ni)

Disappearing to that place beyond seasons… (I counted the tears falling into my love.)
I cross over my rotten memories… (Empty blades continue to overlap.)
So you, in the distance, won’t go astray,
I’ll send you a sign beneath the invisible moon. (I pray it will reach you immediately.)

さあおいで 新しい世界の扉を開け放つ 時間が来てる
金色に そして銀色に滲む 未だ見ぬ世界の NAVIGATOR

Now, come this way. I’ll throw open the door to a new world. The time has come.
Gold and silver runs through this unseen world. I am its navigator.

季節を抱きしめた その先へ (数えた 夢に落ちる涙)
独り 走り続けていくなら(どこまでも曖昧な涙)
強い君が 迷わないように
最初で最後のサインを 今送るよ (さよなら 君へ届くように)

hitori hashiri tsudzukete iku nara (doko made mo aimai na namida)

I held the seasons close to me, and if I continue (I counted the tears falling into my dream.)
To run alone beyond that point… (My tears were so vague. So very vague.)
Then so you, who are so strong, won’t waver,
I’ll send my final sign to you at the start. (Farewell. I hope it reaches you…)

Innocencia

Innocencia

Vocals: Mitose Noriko (みとせのりこ)
Lyrics: Kato.yoshihal
Composed by: Taishi
Album: El Dorado 【Official Site】
Circle: Electro.muster
Event: C89

Requested by: John Hogen

This song has that sort of… possessive love feel to it. Like, the speaker sees his lovers as the epitome of purity, and he doesn’t want to let them go, even if the world frowns upon him as a result. I feel like he’s in love with more than one person, though the lyrics seem to suggest there’s only one involved.

This song was originally used as the theme music for the game Demonion II. I have little knowledge of the game, so please let me know if there are parts that don’t seem to match with the content of the game.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

穢れない純真よ お前が欲しいのなら
残酷な言葉など飾らず 在れば良いだろう

kegarenai junshin yo omae ga hoshii no nara
zankoku na kotoba nado kazarazu areba ii darou

O, unstained purity! If I want you,
Then perhaps I should live without saying cruel things.

そうだ 小さな花たちを毟り尽して
恋慕う幻想に捧げ 心を満たせばいい

sou da chiisana hanatachi wo mushi tsukushite
koishitau gensou ni sasage kokoro wo mitaseba ii

Yes… I pluck away small flowers, offering them up
To the illusion I yearn for. I will satisfy their heart…

あぁ こんなにも この空は続いてるのに
知らないものに まだ怯えてる
愛するべき 幸せを罪と呼ぶなら
闇に身を堕とし 最初から消えてしまえ

aa konna ni mo kono sora wa tsudzuiteru no ni
shiranai mono ni mada obieteru
ai suru beki shiawase wo tsumi to yobu nara
yami ni mi wo otoshi hajime kara kiete shimae

Ah… The sky is so vast,
Yet I am still afraid of what I do not know.
I must love you. If my happiness is regarded as a sin,
Then, from the start, I shall lose myself to the darkness and disappear!

残虐で 冷酷な 知らない者の詩よ
華やかに 鮮やかに 削がれ 散らせ Innocencia

zangyake de reikoku na shiranai mono no uta yo
hanayaka ni azayaka ni sogare chirase Innocencia

This poem belongs to someone cruel and ruthless, who I do not know.
Gorgeously, brilliantly, ‘innocencia’ is weakened and scattered about.

どうせ無へと還るなら お前の元へ
途切れない虚無を遡り 終わりに出会う日まで

douse mu e to kaeru nara omae no moto e
togirenai kyomu wo sakanobori owari ni deau hi made

If am to simply return to nothingness, then I will return to your side,
Swimming against this perpetual nothingness until the day I meet my end.

まだ 心が永遠を 理想を求め
疑いなく 壊れ 欺いて
もう 誰一人 目も合わず 通り過ぎてく
違うと気付いた 知らない事こそが全て

mada kokoro ga eien wo risou wo motome
utagai naku koware azamuite
mou dare hitori me mo awazu toori sugiteku
chigau to kidzuita shiranai koto koso ga subete

My heart still pursues ideals. I will pursue them forever.
Without a doubt, I destroy. I deceive.
Nobody will look at me again. They will simply pass on by.
I realised something was wrong… but not knowing is paramount.

教えておくれ 隠した鍵の在り処
大事か どうなのか 知る由もない
お前だけの 其の応え 求め

oshitete okure kakushita kagi no arika
daiji ka dou nanoka shiru yoshi mo nai
omae dake no sono kotae motome

Please tell me where the hidden key is.
Is it important? There’s no reason for me to know.
I seek a response, one from only you.

交わらない 世界には 罪はいらない
たとえ 自らが望もうと
言葉だけが ただ溢れ 花を飾って
美しくあれと 狂おしく笑う

majiwaranai sekai ni wa tsumi wa iranai
tatoe mizukara ga nozomou to
kotoba dake ga tada afure hana wo kazatte
utsukushiku are to kuruoshiku warau

Sins aren’t needed in our worlds, which do not come together
Even if we ourselves want it.
Only words flow forth, decorating the room with flowers.
They are so beautiful – I smile madly.

あぁ こんなにも この空は続いてるのに
知らない事を まだ恐れてる
与えれた 幸せを壊す者など
闇に飲み込まれ 存在を消してしまえ

aa konna ni mo kono sora wa tsudzuiteru no ni
shiranai koto wo mada osoreteru
ataereta shiawase wo kowasu mono nado
yami ni nomikomare sonzai wo keshite shimae

Ah… The sky is so vast,
Yet I am still afraid of what I do not know.
But for those who would seek to destroy my happiness…
They will be engulfed by darkness! I shall erase them!
