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
数えてくのは何の為?
微かに見えた わたしの声は
叫び続ける 見失わぬよに true sign

kanawanakatta musuu no inori
kazoeteku no wa nan no tame?
kasuka ni mieta watashi no koe wa
sakebi tsudzukeru miushiwanu you ni true sign

Countless prayers remained unanswered.
Why do I count them?
My voice seemed indistinct.
I continue to shout so I won’t lose sight of it. True sign.


(1) 囚われてた希望と絶望 (torawareteta kibou to zetsubou – Imprisoned hope and despair) is written, but 囚われてた風と波 (torawareta kaze to nami – The imprisoned wind and waves) is sung.

Update [10/11/2017]: Reworded the translation, changing it from being about ‘you’ to being about ‘I’.

When you look at this song from a different point of view, it becomes a heartbreaking song about someone searching for someone who has died.


もしも世界のどこかで君は
手に入らないものだけ
求め続けてる日々にいつか
終わりは来るのかな

moshimo sekai no dokoka de kimi wa
te ni hairanai mono dake
motome tsudzuketeru hibi ni itsuka
owari wa kuru no kana

Perhaps, somewhere in the world,
You’re just something I can no longer contact.
I wonder if my days of searching for you
Will come to an end someday…

離して 嘆いて
掴んで 繰り返す

hanashite nageite
tsukande kurikaesu

We part, then I grieve,
Then I catch you, then I do it all again.

遠ざかる 欲しいものが
でも手を伸ばすそれだけで
満たされてく

toozakaru hoshii mono ga
demo te wo nobasu sore dake de
mitasareteku

The thing that I want grows more distant
Yet just reaching out my hand
Fulfils me.

この空は 今日もまた
夕闇に染まることしか
できないのに

kono sora wa kyou mo mata
yuuyami ni somaru koto shika
dekinai noni

But today, once more,
The sky can only be coloured
By dusk.

本当は知ってたんだ それは
凍てつくような事実を
譲れないことはいつも きっと
手放さなきゃいけない だから

hontou wa shitteta nda sore wa
itetsuku you na jijitsu wo
yuzurenai koto wa itsumo kitto
tebanasanakya ikenai dakara

Really, I knew that freezing truth
The whole time.

I never surrendered
Because I’d have to let you go.

離して 嘆いて
掴んで 繰り返す

hanashite nageite
tsukande kurikaesu

We part, then I grieve,
Then I catch you, then I do it all again.

過ぎ去った時間だけは
もう取り返す事などは
できないから

sugisatta jikan dake wa
mou torikaesu koto nado wa
dekinai kara

Only time that has passed by
Can no longer
Be recovered.

この胸は今日もまた
夕闇に染まることしか
できないのに

kono mune wa kyou mo mata
yuuyami ni somaru koto shika
dekinai noni

But today, once more,
My heart can only be coloured
By dusk.

遠ざかる 欲しいものが
でも手を伸ばすそれだけで
満たされてく

toozakaru hoshii mono ga
demo te wo nobasu sore dake de
mitasareteku

The thing that I want grows more distant
Yet just reaching out my hand
Fulfils me.

この空は 今日もまた
夕闇に染まることしか
できないのに

kono sora wa kyou mo mata
yuuyami ni somaru koto shika
dekinai noni

But today, once more,
The sky can only be coloured
By dusk.
