Original Theme: Broken Moon [砕月]

Requested by: mr.deagle

In the end, this seems to be a song about reincarnation. Not Mima’s Reincarnation – just regular reincarnation.


躊躇うような三日月
滲んでいく輪郭
優しい嘘もさよならも
君は上手じゃないから

tamerau you na mikadzuki
nijinde iku rinkaku
yasashii uso mo sayonara mo
kimi wa jouzu ja nai kara

The crescent moon appears to hesitate.
Its outline blurs.
It’s all because you’re no good
at telling kind lies and saying goodbye.

過ぎていく日々のひとつのように そっと此処に残していって
今日が君を翳らせてしまうことがないように

sugite iku hibi no hitotsu no you ni sotto koko ni nokoshite itte
kyou ga kimi o kagerasete shimau koto ga nai you ni

I left you here and went, like one of those days long past.
I hope I won’t end up making your mood darken again today.

悲しまないで 愛しい人 誰のことも責めたりしないで
この世界を愛したままでいて欲しいよ 今、涙 雨に濡れても

kanashimanaide itoshii hito dare no koto mo semetari shinaide
kono sekai o aishita mama de ite hoshii yo ima, namida ame ni nuretemo

Don’t be sad, my beloved. Don’t blame anyone else.
I want you to stay as you are, loving the world, even if rain or tears now drench you.

此処はまるで円の途中
有限の旅路
悲しい歌は嫌いだと
君は大きく笑うだろう

koko wa maru de en no tochuu
yuugen no tabiji
kanashii uta wa kirai da to
kimi wa ookiku warau darou

This place must be midway along a circle.
This journey will end.
Perhaps you’d give me a big smile
telling me you hate sad songs.

約束した幾つかのこと 次の僕に託しておくよ
せめてこれが君に優しく伝わればいいけど

yakusoku shita ikutsuka no koto tsugi no boku ni takushite oku yo
semete kore ga kimi ni yasashiku tsutawareba ii kedo

I’ve left all our promises to my next self.
If only I could at least tell you that tenderly…

悲しまないで 愛しい人 誰のことも責めたりしないで
この世界を愛したままでいて欲しいよ 今、涙 雨に濡れても

kanashimanaide itoshii hito dare no koto mo semetari shinaide
kono sekai o aishita mama de ite hoshii yo ima, namida ame ni nuretemo

Don’t be sad, my beloved. Don’t blame anyone else.
I want you to stay as you are, loving the world, even if rain or tears now drench you.

何度でも君をみつける
在り方や姿が変わっても
君を知る悠久の中また出逢ってもう一度恋をしよう

nando demo kimi o mitsukeru
arikata ya sugata ga kawattemo
kimi o shiru yuukyuu no naka mata deatte mou ichido koi o shiyou

No matter how many times, I’ll find you
even if my form or way of living changes.
Let’s meet again somewhere in your eternity and fall in love.

Original Theme: The Rabbit Has Landed [兎は舞い降りた]

Requested by: Runixzan


空に浮かぶお月様に映る影は私じゃないの
永久に続く夢を抱えて地上に舞い降りたのさ

sora ni ukabu otsukisama ni utsuru kage wa watashi ja nai no
towa ni tsudzuku yume o kakaete koko ni maiorita no sa

The shadow projected on the moon floating in the sky isn’t me.
Bearing an everlasting dream, I landed here, on the earth. (1)

(ytr)
月面に着陸した鳥とこの地上に舞い降りたった兎
途切れがちなテレパシー 何方が御出座し
「メーデーメーデー!応答セヨ!こちらは調査部隊!!」
そっと休憩中に餅つき ためらいも無く飛びつき落ち着きも無くなっていく
moonlight 夢か幻の感覚が迷いを断ち切る
光る眼は真っ赤っ赤

(ytr)
getsumen ni chakuriku shita tori to kono chijou ni maiorita tta usagi
togire gachi na terepashii donata ga odemashi
“meedee meedee! outou seyo! kochira wa iiguru ravi!!”
sotto kyuukeichuu ni mochitsuki tamerai mo naku tobitsuki ochitsuki mo nakunatte iku
moonlight yume ka maboroshi no kankaku ga mayoi o tachikiru
hikaru me wa makkakka

(ytr)
A bird touched down on the moon, and a rabbit landed on the earth.
Someone appears through intermittent telepathy.
“Mayday, mayday! Please respond! This is the Eagle Ravi!” (2)
I pound mochi while secretly taking a break. I jump at things without hesitation. I can no longer relax.
Moonlight. This sensation, like a dream or an illusion, blocks out my doubts.
Those shining eyes are deep red…

誰も止められない 私は止まらない
邪魔したらペシャンコだぞ だぞっぞ

dare mo tomerarenai watashi wa tomaranai
jama shitara peshanko da zo da zozzo

Nobody can stop me. I won’t stop!
If you get in my way, I’ll squash you flat!

空に浮かぶお月様に映る影は私じゃないの
永久に続く夢を抱えて地上に舞い降りたのさ

sora ni ukabu otsukisama ni utsuru kage wa watashi ja nai no
towa ni tsudzuku yume o kakaete koko ni maiorita no sa

The shadow projected on the moon floating in the sky isn’t me.
Bearing an everlasting dream, I landed here, on the earth.

(らっぷびと)
ひとりで駆け抜けた 期待や無駄な知恵は捨ててった
一つ 楽観だけが圧巻 月夜に照らされた星を散策
今日が素敵な今日である為に正気を保ち徒競走に暮れる
生きている内は美しく燃えていたいと走る

(rappubito)
hitori de kakenuketa kitai ya muda na chie wa sutete tta
hitotsu rakkan dake ga akkan tsukiyo ni terasareta hoshi o sansaku
kyou ga suteki na kyou de aru tame ni shouki o tamochi tokyousou ni kureru
ikite iru uchi wa utsukushiku moete itai to hashiru

(Rapbit)
I raced past, throwing away my expectations and useless knowledge.
Only optimism is the best. I explore a planet illuminated by the moonlit night.
Because today was such a good day, I keep my sanity and end this footrace.
If I want to burn brilliantly while I’m alive, I’ll run.

何が起ころうとも行くとこまで行くよ
決めたらヤル娘だぞ だぞ だぞっぞ

nani ga okorou tomo iku toko made iku yo
kimetara yaru ko da zo da zo da zozzo

No matter what happens, I’ll go as far as I can.
After all, once I decide to do something, I do it!

浅葱色の星目指して飛んで来たの 因果の果てに
だけど少し寂しくなって たまに見上げてる空

asagi-iro no hoshi mezashite tonde kita no inga no hate ni
dakedo sukoshi sabishiku natte tama ni miageteru sora

I flew to an asagi-coloured planet, reaching my fate’s end.
But I sometimes get a little lonely and look up at the sky.

遠い遠い昔話 今も語り継がれる話
そんな夢を打ち付けたくて地上に舞い降りたのさ

tooi tooi mukashibanashi ima mo kataritsugareru hanashi
sonna yume o uchitsuketakute koko ni maiorita no sa

It’s an ancient, ancient tale, one that’s even told now.
Wanting to strike that dream, I landed here, on the earth.

空に浮かぶお月様に映る影は私じゃないの
永久に続く夢を抱えて地上に舞い降りたのさ

sora ni ukabu otsukisama ni utsuru kage wa watashi ja nai no

The shadow projected on the moon floating in the sky isn’t me.
Bearing an everlasting dream, I landed here, on the earth.

Requested by: ChaosEternal


暁の空に 虚ろに見た夢
奪われてた永い時と 焼き付いてた魂のような輪郭
喉を縛り付ける 幼き日の遠い記憶 無邪気に嗤う少女

akatsuki no sora ni utsuro ni mita yume
ubawareteta nagai toki to yakitsuiteta tamashii no you na rinkaku
nodo o shibori tsukeru osanaki hi no tooi kioku mujaki ni warau shoujo

In the dawning sky, I saw a hollow dream.
It looked like stolen eternity and the soul scorched into my memory.
Distant memories from my childhood constrict my throat. A girl sneers innocently.

あの目覚めた朝に 胸に響いた神の誘惑
もう何も知らない 何も愛せない 運命に堕とされてく

ano mezameta asa ni mune ni hibiita kami no yuuwaku
mou nani mo shiranai nani mo aisenai sadame ni otosareteku

When I woke up that morning, God’s temptation echoed in my heart.
I know nothing now. I cannot love anything. I am cast down in fate.

白い光が痩躯に滲む
私のすべてはキレイなニセモノ

shiroi hikari ga souku ni nijimu
watashi no subete wa kirei na nisemono

White light blurs through a lean figure.
My whole self is a beautiful imitation.

黄昏の海は 朧に霞んで
囚われてた希望と絶望が 腕でひとつに溶け

tasogare no umi wa oboro ni kasunde
torawareteta kaze to nami ga ude de hitotsu ni toke

The dusk sea blurs into a haze.
My hands make imprisoned hope and despair melt into one. (1)

So 眠れぬ夜に 胸に映した宙吊りの未来
まだ掴み取りたい ダレカ愛したい 花言を散らしていく

So nemurenu yoru ni mune ni utsushita chuudzuri no mirai
mada tsukami toritai dareka aishitai kagen o chirashite iku

So, during a sleepless night, a suspended future was cast upon my heart.
I still want to grab it. I want to love someone. I scatter floriography.

白い光が痩躯に滲む
私のすべてはキレイなニセモノ
翠い光がこころをなぞる
私は孤独に甘えたニセモノ

shiroi hikari ga souku ni nijimu
watashi no subete wa kirei na nisemono
aoi hikari ga kokoro o nazoru
watashi wa kodoku ni amaeta nisemono

White light blurs through a lean figure.
My whole self is a beautiful imitation.
Green light traces around my heart.
I am an imitation that depended on love.

無知という愚かな罪を抱いて
溺れてく「知りたい」と求める罰

muchi to iu oroka na tsumi o idaite
oboreteku “shiritai” to motomeru batsu

I embrace the foolish sin of ignorance
and drown. I receive the punishment of ‘curiosity.’

叶わなかった 無数の祈り

This track seems to play around with Utsuho’s name (空), which also means ‘Sky’ and ‘Empty’. I wonder if this track is related to aurora…?


Woh oh… Now, face the sky!
My love! I will fly far into the distance.
Hah. Ah… I bask in the morning sun
Though everything now returns to ashes. Oh…

In the distant past, the endless sky seemed so free, blue, and clear.
The white raven raced through a dream.
It yearned after the brilliant sun.

The raven wasn’t scared of anything
and it felt like it could go anywhere.
It told a small lie
and was stained black.

Woh oh. So, I face the sky
and my love stretches far into the distance.
The midday sun shines
though my voice now burns. Oh…

I’m not loved by anyone.
Nobody understands me.
After all, my voice and figure are so hideous.
“Even if you hate the world,
Nobody is beyond redemption.”
Yes—the two of us were so alike.

I want to be your light.
What is more important than anything else?
Warmth pierces my heart.
If I can still flap my wings,
I’ll head towards the sky!

Wo oh. Now, the three-legged crow
cries, and faces the sky.
Hah. The setting sun shines through.
That’s right—even if my body will be burned up by the sun…

Though everything is empty, the sky is there.
I felt like I understood the name you gave me back then.
The rays become a beam of gentle light
so they will illuminate you.

I spread my wings
and, yes! After pushing through the frozen star,
I’ll reach out my hands
toward my mother sun.

Woh oh. The three-legged sun
flew high into the heavens.
I raised my voice!
I may have forgotten
what I wanted all along,
But I’ll shine conspicuously. Ah…

Na na na…

This track is so deep. Like always (?) the parts in brackets should be interpreted as their own separate sentence, though there are some parts that actually fit quite neatly into what comes before. One part also swaps from kanji to hiragana – I accounted for it by changing capitalisation and punctuation.

ticat had this to day about the track on Twitter: “Hello…? Ah, can you hear me? Oh, who am I? I’m Koishi! Ko-i-shi! You don’t know me? You liar! I’ve been watching you the whole time since that day, from behind. You didn’t think it ended back then, did you? Hey, don’t hang up! …Well, hanging up won’t do you any good anyway, you know…”


It’s 2 AM. The mercury lamp flickers
and at a gloomy intersection
a voice can be heard coming from behind…

Somebody was boasting [There’s nobody there,]
and according [But who spoke?]
to the rumour they told, [Your dreams can come true…]
They were standing there quietly.

An inorganic pushing sound echoes softly.
You can’t turn back after. Does heaven or hell wait at the end of the line?

“Good evening. Um… have you heard?”

Look, look, somebody’s looking.
They’re peeping at you from close by!
I send down traumatic rain, drip drop.
I’m only going to boil one bird today. Hah.

“How do you do? Good evening. Is it raining where you are?”

I was playing hide and seek. Fooling around.

“I’m close by. I’m coming to see you…”

Right next to you…
Yes. Somebody created [There’s nobody there,]
a rumour [But who spoke?]
and according to it, [Meet them and you can’t go home…]
They’ll sneer from behind you. Who are they?

[Listen closer to this requiem. Does it exist? This is the border beyond the telephone receiver…]
It’s nowhere, but it’s over there:
It’s a hallucinatory world. (1)

“Have you noticed me?”

I hear the clattering sound of a knob turning,
A secret at 2 AM, in the dead of night.
I can’t even see shadows, and footsteps resound.
Two birds can’t come here. They cry.

Even if they see my smashed face,
Everyone will stand in a row.
Being cleaved from the head down,
They crawl along the red lights.
From here, to here,
I won’t let you travel that lost road somewhere.
Thus spoke the heavenly god.
My path back has come unstuck, but
I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine.

I tear things to pieces and mix you and you in.
Red… red… how pointless.
alone in the world. you, i, and dreams…
it’ll finally end. it hurts it hurts it hurts

Still, when I was born
my heart was already wounded.
All I did was hurt someone else.
Will the innocent suffer such a fate?
Well, if you don’t know
then tremble and fall asleep!

“Hey, right now, I’m right by you—”

Ah, bodies and souls are in pieces.
Those lives won’t go back to how they were.
How long will you dream?
Unfair, fair—it’s all relative.
What if I’m Mary?
It’s an unbelievable truth.
Please, don’t arbitrarily settle on a bad ending!
Today, only one bird will fade away again.
Today, I’ll offer up my sweet sacrifice again.


(1) 言死 (genshi) is written in brackets next to 幻視 (genshi). The line can also be read as “It’s the world where words die.”

Hesitating looks so foolish, especially when I’ve already got an answer.
What do I need so I can understand this? It doesn’t seem like a lie.
A wave of rules jokes around. It won’t be stifled.
Let’s stop saying all these clichés. I’m tired of pretending.

I hate pleasure. I’ll unsheathe my sword. (stories)
You choose who I kill. (with conclusions)
Now, I’ll take everything in my hands! (that lack dreams.)

The scarlet moon stains me
and I revert to a certain form.
I can’t find the final page.
Did someone steal it?
The circle screams. My heart stops beating.
My heart received life.
This is the day of demise, in which I will carry out my mission.

折れた翼 闇に疼く 苛立ちのリフレイン

My broken wings throb in the darkness, beating a refrain of irritation.
I add a bit of emotion and am proud. It’s just self-satisfaction.

Will you step forward with your left foot or your right? (and dancing through space)

The waterfall makes white flowers bloom and scatter.
That mountain is known as a splendid land. The cries of cicadas resound.

Summer passes and autumn arrives. I breathe in the cool, clear air.
We fly high and far in the distance and look down upon a golden land.

The autumn ears of rice sway. It’s the day of the harvest, which the seasons carry.
A single fallen leaf dances on the wind’s melody.

I filled my hands with blazing crimson leaves.
I feel regret each time they scatter. Our season has arrived at last.

The sunset I saw with you was a vivid orange.
Your face seemed to melt into the setting sun. Your features were dyed a dim colour.

We’ll stretch our wings and aim high in the sky.
We’ll fly out so we can see the same scene once more.

The autumn sky is clear. I remember when we first met.
Yes, I remember. I remember you as you raced through the wind.
Your red eyes are more beautiful than that past landscape and the autumn leaves.
I can’t forget.
Only the days we spent together
remain in my heart…

A new lyricist has joined the Shinra-Bansho flock! If I had to compare Caral to another lyricist, I’d compare them to Seiji. Like Seiji, they mix English seamlessly with the Japanese lyrics. It’s really effective – I didn’t even have to do much work to make it fit.

I think this is a Yukari x Reimu song, but it’s tough working out who’s speaking where. This line in particular is tricky: 攫って幻の世界から (Abducted from a world of illusions). The speaker could be the one doing the abducting, or they could be the one being abducted. As my interpretation of the lyrics evolves, I may change some of these things around.


(Heart rate,
Ideals and reality create gaps and they close in.
My heart and reality stifle tenderness.
No limits. Even if that’s true,
I can’t shout or spit out
that small, reverberating message)
Only in my heart.

Though I act tough,
I can’t leap over this discontent.
I say something or other
and the same kind of morning arrives.

I imagined freedom back then
but where is it?
I forget my ideals in my dream.

Hey, only my heart’s voice
is an acupuncture marionette. Ah, ah.
I can’t even keep up anymore. Everybody!
Everyone sword fights with the attention-seekers. Run.
I knew that I was being sought out
but still, it was my good day.
Hey, why is it? Hey, why is it?
I want to gain one silent day. Ah…

Abducted from a world of illusions,
It was like I had been swallowed up.
Can’t get over there. Yeah…
I dig it up and it’s twisted. You got it.
We become tangled up.
Ah… I can’t disobey. I’m lame.

You gang up on me. Eh, eh.
You call me a contrarian. Eh, eh.
You tell me to donate if I’m going to say this and that.
You keep saying the same things. Eh, eh.
How boring. Don’t let me down.
(Don’t know nothing, don’t let me down.)

Oh… no matter how far I go, I don’t understand.
As for those unreasonable demands, ah, ah…
Aren’t they fine because they’re so explosive?
(Aren’t they fine?)
Ah. No matter how long I’ve done it, I’m going to leave.
After all giving up and accepting things is so important.
Hey, why is it? Hey, why is it?
In the end, I’ll manage somehow.
(So lonely, lonely day.)

But if you’re by my side…
I’ll abduct you from a repeated world.
If it’s only a little bit,
I’ll give it a try. Oh yeah…
In a dream, to think you’d say something like “You made it.”
I want to disobey.
Ah… which is my true flame?

Hey, the voice of my heart
is calling out the truth. Ah, ah.
It’s telling me to take care not to be swallowed up.
We tangle together
but why? Why? Why?
My heart rate
can’t be stopped.
Even your heart rate
is the same as mine.

Kidnapped from a world of illusions,
I don’t want to be swallowed up.
I can get over there. Yeah…
I dig it up and it’s twisted. You got it.
I’ll stand still.
Ah… This is my real flame.
Only my heart.

Your dream will someday snap.
I searched for something I lacked.
I take your hand
and kidnap you, heading to the world you gave me.
As it reacts to the truth, I can’t stop my heart rate.
That must be only—

(Kidnapped from a world of illusions…)
My heart rate
will always be only—
(Ideals and reality create gaps, and they close in.)
My heart rate.
(My heart and reality stifle tenderness.)
I can’t disobey. I’m lame.

There are some really, really long sentences in this one! It’s also worth pointing out that all of the lyrics in the booklet are written as a wall of text. Therefore, the formatting of the lyrics here is unofficial, and has only been done to make it easier to read.


いつだって何かを疑っているね
掴まえさせないその眼差しで
本当のコトバを隠しているのは僕じゃない
誰でもない君だろうに

itsu datte nanika o utagatte iru ne
tsukamae sasenai sono manazashi de
hontou no kotoba o kakushite iru no wa boku ja nai
dare demo nai kimi darou ni

You’re always doubting something,
Staring with a gaze I won’t let myself be caught in.
The one hiding their true words isn’t me.
It seems like it’s none other than you.

さっきまで降っていた雨で湿った街の色も匂いも
風が分からなくしてしまう 目も開けていられない

sakki made futte ita ame de shimetta machi no iro mo nioi mo
kaze ga wakaranaku shite shimau me mo akete irarenai

I no longer know the colour, smell, or wind of this town, which was drenched
in the rain that was falling until just now. I can’t help but open my eyes.

どんな答えを君が欲しがって傷つくとしても
繋いだ手にまだ意味を感じているなら
どんな答えを君が見つけて信じないとしても
僕はまた都合のいい嘘をつく

donna kotae o kimi ga hoshigatte kizutsuku to shitemo
tsunaida te ni mada imi o kanjite iru nara
donna kotae o kimi ga mitsukete shinjinai to shitemo
boku wa mata tsugou no ii uso o tsuku

No matter what answer you want and hurt me for,
If you still feel meaning in our hands tied together,
Then no matter what answer you find and don’t believe,
I’ll just tell a convenient lie once more.

どうしたっていつかは終わってしまうんだろう
だったら哀しむのはその時でいいよ
突然の風は吹き上げて来ただけ
止んだら上手にふたり着地しよう

dou shitatte itsuka wa owatte shimau ndarou
dattara kanashimu no wa sono toki de ii yo
totsuzen no kaze ga fukiagete kita dake
yandara jouzu ni futari chakuchi shiyou

Things will end someday, no matter what I do.
If that’s the case, it’s better to be sad when it happens.
A sudden wind has just blown up—
When it stops, let’s make our landing.

いつかの約束を君が覚えていなくても
交わしたキスがまだ後を引くのなら
いつかの約束を君が破ろうとしいても
僕はまた騙される振りをする

itsuka no yakusoku o kimi ga oboete inakutemo
kawashita kisu ga mada ato o hiku no nara
itsuka no yakusoku o kimi ga yaburou to shite itemo
boku wa mata damasareru furi o suru

Even if you no longer remember the promise we once made,
If the kisses we exchanged still linger,
Then even if you attempt to break the promise we once made,
I will still pretend to be deceived.

続きのない物語を繰り返し読んでいるような世界の終わりが
ここで、ずっと、続いていきますように

tsudzuki no nai monogatari o kurikaeshi yonde iru you na sekai no owari ga
koko de, zutto, tsudzuite ikimasu you ni

This world is like reading a book without a sequel over and over again.
I hope that its ending will continue right here, always…

どんな答えを君が欲しがって傷ついたとしても
僕は僕に都合のいい甘せかで最低の嘘をつく

donna kotae o kimi ga hoshigatte kizutsuita to shite mo
boku wa boku ni tsugou no ii amayaka de saitei no uso o tsuku

No matter what answer you wanted and hurt me for,
I will tell myself convenient, sweet, and nasty lies…

Vocals: あやぽんず* (Ayaponzu*)
Lyrics: ticat
Arranged by: kaztora
Album: Synchro 2 (シンクロ2) 【Official Site】
Circle: ShinRa-Bansho (森羅万象)
Event: Reitaisai 15 [RTS15]
Original Theme: Dullahan Under the Willows [柳の下のデュラハン]

(非公式の)英訳だけです。申し訳ありません。

ticat posted a bit about this track on her Twitter. She mentions that it’s about a tragedy. Everyone shrugged off the blame, saying the same thing: “it wasn’t me.” Meanwhile, the gardenias were looking at the moon without speaking. Where is the 9th person…?

There’s a possible pun in this song: gardenia (クチナシ – kuchinashi), a type of flower referenced in the song, is pronounced the same as ‘something unspoken’ (口無し – kuchi nashi). It also sounds a little like headless (首無し – kubi nashi), which describes Sekibanki a bit. There could be different interpretations of this song, but I think it’s about a group of kids ganging up on someone (Sekibanki), who then goes out to seek revenge on them. So… it’s pretty dark. Look out for the references to children’s games such as kagome kagome and hide and seek!

One final note: bracketed words were written like that in the original lyrics.


 

[Playing a game…]
Where are those bewildered bodies going? [Number 1 is here]
Yes, bearing the obvious answer, I pose my question. [Number 2’s on the other side]
A dilapidated house. [Number 3] A corner of the back street. [Number 4]
Something seems wrong with this heat haze…

In the park of beautiful gardenias , atop the slide, [atop it]
Everyone chanted in unison: [“It wasn’t me!”]

Ah… And then they leaped out, decapitated them, and laughed.
Children here, there, everywhere!
It must have been me they did it to.
Ready? [Not yet!]
[Woh…] It must [Woh…] be somewhere,
Or so I believed.
Listen—those old tales
are the sorts of things that… you can’t possibly tell now.
[Woh… playing a game…]

After school, they play hide and seek at dusk [searching for the next one]
chasing after a shadow that must have vanished [they kicked it]. 5! [6!]
At the school gate [7!] a silhouette stands [8!].
A figure stands left out from their friends. Who is it? One left now… [Not ready yet!] (1)

The gardenia was watching everything (that day).
As for the rumoured dullahan… who’s the storyteller? [“It’s you!”]

Ah. The moon was watching, watching, waxing.
Near and far, hey… kids!
Stretching, stretching, stretched out, or so they say.
Ready? [Not yet!]
[Woh…] Everyone [Woh…] covers their eyes.
Give it back right now!
Who will I steal away? Who will I destroy? After all,
I’ll never, ever forgive them for this…

I can’t see any signs of remorse.
I pushed and was pushed back in return.
I can’t see any signs of remorse.
It’s sad, [all cut open] wait! [Stop!]

I peep right in…
Stop it, stop it, stop it, hey! Someone!
Kagome, kagome. Now, the kids
form a circle, circle, circle around the secrets. Ready? [I’m coming now!]
[Woh…] Tomorrow it’ll surely be [Woh…] an unfamiliar face.
“I won’t let you escape…”

Everything is stained red and blue:
Hearts, bodies. Still, they’re kids.
Someday, somewhere, for some reason, I’ll get rid of them all in the end. [9!]
[There’s no going back!] Though I search,
[There’s no going back!] Though I search,
I can’t forgive you now…
The sun comes out, comes out, comes out today
and from my swollen, swollen, swollen heart:
“Who was there behind you?”
Who was it? Playing a game.


(1) Who is it? (誰そ彼 – tasokare) is believed to be a precursor to the word for dusk (黄昏 – tasogare), as dusk is the time when it is no longer possible to tell who you’re speaking to [reference, in Japanese].
