The title could also be translated as ‘Raze’. I think ‘Raise’ is a better fit since the song deals with life and death and what comes after, so I went with that instead.


The road I’ve lived so far has seemed like a game
and life is like a wild card.
I’m a little worse at using trump cards than people.
Wherever I go, I bow my head.
The pitiful joker is of no use.
You’re unbalanced, and for your sake I send a blue rose.

Because there’s nobody in this world who I can trust completely
I’ll switch off this earthly life’s channel. Farewell.

Wearing a chic red dress
the fragrant rose seems like a placebo.
Even if we’re satisfied and fooled for now, let’s allow it.
Things will continue in a happy dream.

Conspicuous rouge lips
are bullets piercing through the swarming butterflies.
“Just a little more…” the angels and demons laugh, too.
The scales waver.

There’s no reason why anything I should cling to would remain
so let’s go flipping through the thought channels.
The blue rose withers, too.

Stop me from leaving and hug me intimately.
Kiss me skilfully with mischievous lips.
Trump cards should be saved until the end.
Wild card. I’m the joker.

Nobody believes in their heart that life is just a once-only thing.
Let’s cast aside our past and future and enjoy the present!
Isn’t that enough?

All I want is to live while singing, dancing, and smiling.
This world, where all the good-for-nothings just laugh and spend their time,
is still dreaming.

Another awesome arrangement by kaztora. And more sweet lyrics from azuki! I thought Kokoro might have been speaking about what someone else told her, but the whole thing just seems to be her talking to herself.

The title is made up of two parts:
Halation = “The action of light surrounding some object as if making a halo.”
Remotion = “The quality/state of being remote.”

I had taken a look at the bottom of Pandora’s Box
Whilst living in this bustling, spinning world.

I just want to reset this false smile of mine.
It’s stuck to my heart, which raised a shriek.

I don’t want to live in a world in which I am still alone.

Do I still obey the lies I once told myself?
I can’t fool myself. I tell a lie that’s like a dream.

I face that weak-hearted person who still can’t move forward.
I spew venom and leave them behind in this gorgeous world

Because I still don’t have the courage to cast myself away and live.

I haven’t yet completely shaken off the lies I once told myself.
Without telling myself the truth, I wear a mask over my heart.

Happiness floats to the surface, and even if it sinks into rage,
I want to shake off my sadness and live happily.

Do I still remember the words of promise I spoke to myself?
Though they were lies, I want to obey them.

I wonder what lies laid in those words of promise I spoke to myself on that day?
I tell myself a dream-like lie, loaded with hope, in which I believe in the future.
I made a promise to myself on that day, but can I properly face myself now?
If I’m just going to lie to myself, then I want to tell myself a happy lie!

Rage. Sorrow. Threats. Surprise. Worry. Laughter.
I want to take off such masks and live!
