This track is the theme song of the ero game ‘Tsukumo Onna Aoe’ (付喪女・あおゑ). It’s such a soothing track…

As for the track’s title, it’s made up of two kanji. The first means ‘love’ and the second means ‘parting.’ If you wanted an English title, you could go with something like ‘love parting’ or ‘separated love.’ I can’t make a firm judgement because I haven’t played the game.


白々と薄灯りが心臓を縁取る
触れれば嘘 真など 紛れて伽に散る

shira shira to usuakari ga kokoro wo fuchidoru
furereba uso makoto nado magirete togi ni chiru

A pale light borders my heart.
When we touch, truth and lies mix and fall upon my consort.

ふわふわと浮気な絹音
秘め事の赤は 滴り堕ち零れてく

fuwa fuwa to uwaki na kinuoto
himegoto no aka wa shitatari ochi koboreteku

Our silk rustles, making a light, wanton sound.
The secret red liquid drips down and spills over…

愛が離され 輪廻に華咲かせても
逆さへつらなる あおい恋花火
君から君へと 腕を絡め取るたび
また次と囁く

ai ga hanasare rinne ni hana sakasetemo
sakasa e tsura naru aoi koi hanabi
kimi kara kimi e to ude wo karame toru tabi
mata tsugi to sasayaku

Even if love is kept apart and flowers are made to bloom by the cycle of existence
Love’s blue fireworks will stretch out in reverse.
Each time I tie my arms around you,
You whisper “again…”

この先も怠惰も無い 縁が切れてる
あやかしか造りものか 訊かれて頷くだけ

kono saki mo taida mo nai enishi ga kireteru
ayakashi ka tsukurimono ka kikarete unazuku dake

There will be no sloth from here on. Our bonds break.
Asked if you’re a youkai or an artificial being, you just nod your head.

移ろえば 浮つく傷跡
激情を浸す 幸せとは怖かろう

utsuroeba uwatsuku kizuato
gekijou wo hitasu shiawase to wa kowakarou

My scars grow lighter as they fade away.
I drench my fury. Is happiness frightening?

来る日も 延々と黙々と 待ち人あらぬ
拗ねたり なくしたり 飽きる毎日に
覚えた感触に 涙するほど解る 戯れを求めて

kuru hi mo en en to moku moku to machibito aranu
sunetari nakushitari akiru mainichi ni
oboeta kanshoku ni namida suru hodo wakaru tawamure wo motomete

The days that come are endless and silent. Nobody awaits me.
I sulk, lose things, and lose interest in my daily life.
I know these feelings so well I could cry. I seek fun…

それがいいと微笑む 綺麗だと
夜映す瞳に 狂い咲く あおい花火

sore ga ii to hohoemu kirei da to
yoru utsusu hitomi ni kuruizaku aoi hanabi

You smile, saying “that’s fine.” How beautiful…
Blue fireworks bloom out of season in your eyes, which reflect the night.

愛が離され 輪廻に華咲かせても
逆さへつらなる あおい恋花火
君から君へと 腕を絡め取るたび
また次を手繰り

ai ga hanasare rinne ni hana sakasetemo
sakasa e tsura naru aoi koi hanabi
kimi kara kimi e to ude wo karame toru tabi
mata tsugi wo taguri

Even if love is kept apart and flowers are made to bloom by the cycle of existence
Love’s blue fireworks will stretch out in reverse.
Each time I tie my arms around you,
I reel you in again.

愛情か 妄想か 確かなおもいで
静寂は すり寄る より強く縛る
いとしい君から 本当は何と訊かれて
離れたくないと呟く

aijou ka mousou ka tashika na omoi de
seijaku wa suriyoru yori tsuyoku shibaru
itoshii kimi kara hontou wa nani to kikarete
hanaretakunai to tsubuyaku

Love, or a delusion? With sure feelings
We snuggle together in silence. I tie you even tighter…
When you, who are so dear to me, ask “What do you really want?”
I murmur “I don’t want us to part.”

Requested by: John Hogen

‘El Dorado’ appears to be a Spanish legend about either a king who covered himself in gold or a golden empire. Gold plays an important role in this track, too.

This song was used as the theme music for the game ‘Dungeon of Regalias.’


僕の記憶
美しい 土よ 風よ
君が嗤う 鉄屑に隠れて震える
儚い夢になど許されない
繰り返す欲へと身を落としてる

boku no kioku
utsukushii tsuchi yo kaze yo
kimi ga warau tetsukuzu ni kakurete furueru
hakanai yume ni nado yurusarenai
kurikaesu yoku e to mi wo otoshiteru

My memories:
The land and the wind are so beautiful!
You sneer, and I shiver, hidden among the metal scraps.
These things are not allowed, even within transient dreams.
We stoop to repeating base lust.

ずっと地へ深く深く沈みこむ
真っすぐに焼けた核に突き刺したてくれ
割れたリンゴみたく黄金を放って
綺麗なんだ そのまま 立ち尽くし笑え

zutto chi e fukaku fukaku shizumi komu
massugu ni yaketa kaku ni tsukisashite kure
wareta ringo mitaku ougon wo hanatte
kirei na nda sono mama tachi tsukushi warae

I sink deep, deep toward the earth.
Please, stab me right in my burnt core.
It will release gold like a smashed apple.
How beautiful. Like that, stand still and smile!

背德の帰結
未知なる闇にのまれ
天の路は機械の歯車に繋がる
救い給え魂血は流れる
生きること即ち その一部なり

haitoku no kiketsu
michi naru yami ni nomare
ten no michi wa kikai no haguruma ni tsunagaru
sukui tamae tamashii chi wa nagareru
ikiru koto sunawachi sono ichibu nari

The result of vice
Is to be engulfed by unknown darkness.
The way to Heaven is tied to the mechanical gears.
Save our souls! Blood flows.
This is life. It’s a portion of it, so to speak.

かつて 栄華を燃やした怪物よ
光を齧り 今こそ叶えてくれ
望むものはみんなあの空の向こうへ
夢を見てもいいだろう なあ・・・このまま笑え

katsute eiga wo moyashita kaibutsu yo
hikari wo kajiri ima koso kanaete kure
nozomu mono wa minna ano sora no mukou e
yume wo mitemo ii darou naa… kono mama warae

O beast, with past glory all burned up—
Gnaw away at the light. Please, answer my prayers now!
Everything I want heads beyond that sky.
I wonder if it’s okay for me to dream. Hey… keep smiling!

僕は草原に立ち
赤く染めた空を着て
忘れ去られた時の影を触れた

boku wa kusahara ni tachi
akaku someta sora wo kite
wasure sarareta toki no kage wo fureta

Standing upon the plains,
Clad in a sky dyed red,
I felt the shadows of forgotten time.

血は地に流れ流れ溶けていく
目の前を踊る 黄金の風になる
闇よ 僕はキミを哀れみなどしない
僕らは ただ路傍の石みたく

chi wa chi ni nagare nagare tokete iku
me no mae wo odoru ougon no kaze ni naru
yami yo boku wa kimi wo awaremi nado shinai
bokura wa tada robou no ishi mitaku

My blood flows upon the ground and melts away.
It becomes a golden wind, dancing before my eyes.
O darkness! I shall not have mercy on you.
We are like pebbles at the side of the road.

ずっと地へ深く深く沈みこむ
真っすぐに焼けた核に突き刺してくれ
割れたリンゴみたく黄金を放って
綺麗なんだ そのまま 夢見てるように
世界よ 在るべき あの日へと還れ

zutto chi e fukaku fukaku shizumi komu
massugu ni yaketa kaku ni tsukisashite kure
wareta ringo mitaku ougon wo hanatte
kirei na nda sono mama yume miteru you ni
sekai yo aru beki ano hi e to kaere

I sink deep, deep toward the earth.
Please, stab me right in my burnt core.
It will release gold like a smashed apple.
How beautiful. Like that, as if having a dream…
O world! Return to that day, as you must.

黄金よ

O gold!

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!

嘘つきの哲学なんて この世になくていい
あてもなく 右へ左へ 無いものねだりに見せかける
傍に来て 離れたくない 紙一重の真実に
慰めを受け入れられず 違う他人の末路を重ねてる

usotsuki no tetsugaku nante kono yo ni nakute ii
ate mo naku migi he hidari he nai mono nedari ni misekakeru
soba ni kite hanaretakunai kami hitoe no shinjitsu ni
nagusame wo ukeirerarezu chigau tanin no matsuro wo kasaneteru

It’s better if lying philosophies, or things like that, don’t exist in the world…
Aimlessly – left, right – I pretend to ask for too much.
Come to my side! I don’t want to be parted from you, in this paper-thin reality.
Without accepting comfort, I pile up the last days of a different stranger.

無邪気な日々 雨上がりに 何もなくて
胸につかえた 廃墟のような例えしかない
間違いなく 君が知っても意味ない

mujaki na hibi ame agari ni nani mo nakute
mune ni tsukaeta haikyo no you na tatoe shika nai
machigai naku kimi ga shittemo imi nai

Those innocent days. After the rain, nothing remains.
Nothing but a metaphor of a kind of ruins, caught in my chest.
There’s no mistaking it – even if you know, it’s meaningless.

降り続く音はわずかな言葉をけしていく
冷静な他人のふりも 何度もやるほど強くない
気づけない傷は 時折 想像した枠を超え
愛情を怠惰にかえる 拒む 体の裏側 締めつける

furitsudzuku oto wa wazuka na kotoba wo keshiteiku
reisei na tanin no furi mo nando mo yaru hodo tsuyokunai
kidzukenai kizu wa tokiori souzou shita waku wo koe
aijou wo taida ni kaeru kobamu karada no uragawa shimetsukeru

The sounds raining down erase that small bunch of words.
My act of being a calm stranger is as powerless as the amount of times I do it.
Sometimes, the wounds I cannot feel cross over the framework I imagined up.
Love changes to sloth. I refuse. You tighten against the other side of my body…

時間がない 自由のない 因果の中
柱の折れた 廃墟にさえ 花は咲くから
此処ではない 君は知ってはいけない

jikan ga nai jiyuu no nai inga no naka
hashira no oreta haikyo ni sae hana wa saku kara
koko de wa nai kimi wa shitte wa ikenai

Within cause and effect, in which there is no time and no freedom,
Flowers bloom even in ruins with broken pillars,
So you mustn’t know. Not here.

愛の為に騙した 償いではいけない

ai no tame ni damashita tsugunaide wa ikenai

I deceived you for the sake of love. I mustn’t atone for it…

無邪気な日々 雨上がりに 何もなくて
胸につかえた 廃墟のような例えしかない
迷いはない 本当のことは言わない

mujaki na hibi ame agari ni nani mo nakute
mune ni tsukaeta haikyo no you na tatoe shika nai
mayoi wa nai hontou no koto wa iwanai

Those innocent days. After the rain, nothing remains.
Nothing but a metaphor of a kind of ruins, caught in my chest.
I will not hesitate. I will not speak the truth.

いつか雨上がりに 君の花は咲くから

itsuka ame agari ni kimi no hana wa saku kara

Because someday, after the rain, your flower will bloom…

I don’t know why, but I think of Macbeth when I read the lyrics to this song. Picture seven witches, gathered around a cauldron, conspiring against the one who betrayed them…

I don’t know much about the context behind this song, so my interpretation of the pronouns is largely based on my own interpretation of the story behind the song. Apart from about 2 anata (‘you’), the only other pronoun is bokura (a masculine form of ‘us’).

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

閉ざした過去 扉の鍵 壊して
隠したものは 唯一つ

tozashita kako tobira no kagi kowashite
kakushita mono wa tada hitotsu

We destroy the key to the door – the door to the sealed-away past.
There is but one thing that we hid away…

終わるときのために
祈りを捧げよう 悦びとは
あなた自身の鏡だと
欲望の果てを示す運命
願いを数えましょう

owaru toki no tame ni
inori wo sasageyou yorokobi to wa
anata jishin no kagami da to
yokubou no hate wo shimesu unmei
negai wo kazoemashou

Let us offer up prayers
For the time of the end.
Happiness is the mirror of your ‘self,’
A fate that shows the extremity of your desires.
Let us enumerate our wishes.

嘘つき 嗤う月よ 造り物の笑顔で
うごめく魔女の宴 毒の華を散らして
美しい詩に秘めた闇を纏う調べで
七つの罪に涙の数 罰をくだせ

usotsuki warau tsuki yo tsukurimono no egao de
ugomeku majo no utage doku no hana wo chirashite
utsukushii uta ni himeta yami wo matou shirabe de
nanatsu no tsumi ni namida no kazu batsu wo kudase

“Liar!” Sneers the moon, wearing a fake smile.
Poisonous blossoms scatter here, at the banquet of writhing witches.
Darkness, hidden within beautiful poetry, adorns this melody.
Through it, we hand down as much punishment as tears for the seven sins

住処を喰い尽くして 啼く獣は
恐れるものを 塵一つ
残したりはしない

sumika wo kuitsukushite naku kemono wa
osoreru mono wo chiri hitotsu
nokoshitari wa shinai

The noisy beasts consume all in their den.
They do not leave behind even a scrap
Of that which they are afraid of.

あなたを滅ぼす偽りとは
内なるものに固執した
暗がりに潜む 赤い魂
望みを教えましょう

anata wo horobosu itsuwari to wa
uchinaru mono ni koshitsu shita
kuragari ni hisomu akai katamari
nozomi wo oshiemashou

The lie that destroys you
Is your adherence to your inner self.
A red spirit lurks in the darkness…
Come! Let us tell you our wishes.

呪文を一つ一つ 引き契り 繋げよう
迷わず元の場所へゆこう 愛に焼かれて
もうすぐ 天罰は下る 七つの刹那に
魔法で叶わない夢に溺れて消えろ

jumon wo hitotsu hitotsu hikichigiri tsunageyou
mayowazu moto no basho he yukou ai ni yakarete
mou sugu tenbatsu wa kudaru nanatsu no setsuna ni
mahou de kawanai yume ni oborete kiero

These spells, one by one, draw you in and bind you.
Without hesitation, we head to our former place. We were burned by love.
Soon, divine punishment will be brought down. In those seven moments…
Drown in a dream that can’t be granted through magic, and disappear!

哀しい瞳をした僕らの罪
少しだけ愛に触れたね
祈らなくても 過去は変わらず 続く

kanashii me wo shita bokura no tsumi
sukoshi dake ai ni fureta ne
inoranakute mo kako wa kawarazu tsudzuku

We, who made such sad eyes,
Were guilty of being touched ever so slightly by love.
Even if we do not pray, the past will continue, unchanging.

願いを 嘘を七つ叶えよう 終わりゆく
溢れる涙に捧げよう 愛に包まれ
絶望 ゆれる言葉 一つだけの真実
命がある限り それを運命と呼ぶ

Our wishes, our lies – we shall grant seven of them. The end begins…
Let us consecrate these overflowing tears. We are engulfed in love.
Despair. Your shaking words. There is but one truth.
As long as you have life, you call it ‘fate.’

嘘つき 嗤う月よ 造り物の笑顔で

“Liar!” Sneers the moon, wearing a fake smile.
Poisonous blossoms scatter here, at the banquet of writhing witches.
Darkness, hidden within beautiful poetry, adorns this melody.
Through it, we hand down as much punishment as tears for the seven sins.
Come now, we do this for your sake!
