I’ve been thinking of a potential English translation of the album title… and I was thinking of something like “The Purple Banquet’s Bewitching Songs.” I still don’t know how to pronounce it, though…


聞いて、あのね、
それは毒の花 香る花
でもね、あのね、咲かせたのは僕
決して食べないでね

kiite, ano ne,
sore wa doku no hana kaoru hana
demo ne, ano ne, sakaseta no wa boku
kesshite tabenaide ne

Listen, um,
It’s a poisonous flower, a fragrant flower.
But, well, I’m the one who made it bloom.
Make sure you don’t eat it, okay?

赤や青や白や紫
咲かせます 森をぬけて
あちらこちら どこへでもいく
約束を果たします

aka ya ao ya shiro ya murasaki
sakasemasu mori o nukete
achira kochira doko e demo iku
yakusoku o hatashimasu

Red, blue, white, and purple.
I make them bloom and escape the forest.
Here and there, I go everywhere.
I’m fulfilling my promise.

それでも僕には姿がない
楽しくて 愉快だな
つぎは何になろうか 紫陽花の夢

sore demo boku ni wa sugata ga nai
tanoshikute yukai da na
tsugi wa nani ni narou ka ajisai no yume

Even so, I am formless.
It’s so fun and delightful.
What shall I be next in this dream of hydrangea?

聞いて、あのね、
それは丸い花 雨の花

kiite, ano ne,
sore wa marui hana ame no hana

Listen, well,
it’s a round flower, the flower of rain.

でもね、あのね、誰も知らない
秘密の使命がある

demo ne, ano ne, dare mo shiranai
himitsu no shimei ga aru

Still, um, nobody knows
that it has a secret mission.

涙落ちる事由のせいで
花の色は変わるんだ
青は嬉し 白は寂しい
紫は憎らしい

namida ochiru jiyuu no sei de
hana no iro wa kawaru nda
ao wa ureshi shiro wa samishii
murasaki wa nikurashii

The flower’s colour changes
because tears fall.
Blue is for happiness, white is for loneliness
and purple is for hatred.

それでも僕には声も出ない
悲しくて 笑えるな
つぎは何になろうか
望めるものならば

sore demo boku ni wa koe mo denai
kanashikute waraeru na
tsugi wa nani ni narou ka
nozomeru mono naraba

Even so, I am voiceless.
I am sad, yet burst into laughter.
What shall I be next?
If I could wish for something…

僕には姿がない
楽しくて 苦しくて
咲き誇る紫陽花はまた色を持つ

boku ni wa sugata ga nai
tanoshikute kurushikute
saki hokoru ajisai wa mata iro o motsu

I am formless.
It’s so fun and painful.
The hydrangea, in full bloom, has another colour.

一年にいちど許された
いのち 終わりがくるまで

ichinen ni ichido yurusareta
inochi owari ga kuru made

It’s only allowed to bloom once a year
until its life comes to an end.

甘く熟し実る刹那
鈍色の空を仰ぐ
深く静かに祈りをかけ
赤く染む水を含む

amaku jukushi minoru setsuna
nibiiro no sora o aogu
fukaku shizuka ni inori o kake
akaku somu mizo o fukamu

The moment it ripened and bore sweet fruit,
I looked up at the dark grey sky.
I send a prayer, deeply and silently
and hold red-dyed water in my mouth.

風に刺された頬は隠せない
たがの外れたような遊戯
賭け事 秘め事 繰り返し壊れ
夢を見る

kaze ni sasareta hoho wa kakusenai
taga no hazureta you na yuugi
kakegoto himegoto kurikaeshi koware
yume o miru

I can’t hide my cheeks, pierced by the wind.
It’s just a game that seems disconnected.
Gambling. Secrets. I break the cycle
and dream.

私を惑わす美しいもの
あなたを殺める猛毒の針
私を操る愛しい光
深く落ち逝く眠りにつく

watashi o madowasu utsukushii mono
anata o ayameru moudoku no hari
watashi o ayatsuru itoshii hikari
fukaku ochi yuku nemuri ni tsuku

Something beautiful bewilders me.
It was needles coated with deadly poison, used to murder you.
Lovely light manipulates me.
I fall deeply asleep, a descent like dying.

果ては遠く便りもなく
千切れ雲さえが笑う
ここは地獄 疲れきって
ゆらゆらと骨を焦がした

hate wa tooku tayori mo naku
chigiregumo sae ga warau
koko wa jigoku tsukare kitte
yura yura to hone o kogashita

The end is far away. I have no tidings.
Even the scattered clouds laugh.
This is hell. I’m exhausted.
I burned the bones, with flames flickering

この道にはもう辿りはないと
後にも先にも何もない
神渡しの風 頬に感じたら
砕け散る

kono michi ni wa mou tadori wa nai to
ato ni mo saki ni mo nani mo nai
kamiwatashi no kaze hoho ni kanjitara
kudake chiru

If I stop following this road,
then there will be nothing before or after.
When I feel the divine wind on my cheek
(1)
I crumble.

私を殺めた美しいもの
あなたが愛した猛毒の花
後ろ髪をひく最期の嘘は
深く落ち逝く眠りにつく

watashi o ayameta utsukushii mono
anata ga aishita moudoku no hana
ushirogami o hiku saigo no uso wa
fukaku ochi yuku nemuri ni tsuku

Something beautiful murdered me.
It was the poisonous flower that you loved.
A final lie pulls me back.
I fall deeply asleep, a descent like dying.

私を惑わす美しいもの
あなたが与えた猛毒の針

watashi o madowasu utsukushii mono
anata ga ataeta moudoku no hari

Something beautiful bewilders me.
It was the needles coated with deadly poison that you gave me.


(1) 神渡し (kami watashi) is the west wind that blows during the 10th lunar month. It evokes a strong image of winter.
