Several years ago I used to be a huge fan of Nightwish, but then I grew tired of them always changing they’re main lead vocalist and being repetitive. I found lots of their song not appealing to my tastes, and I ended up parting away from their latest works.
This song kinda feels like a Nightwish song, but, to me, it’s even more good then some of their best songs out there.
I remember I made a friend of mine listen to this song when he was talking about how unbeatable Nightwish were in terms of Gothic metal music, and I left him speechless.
It’s so strange that, even if Absolute Castaway is not a gothic-metal circle, this song is THIS good.
I don’t know, but I felt that as a very strange fact that helped me believe the whole circle is full of geniuses.



hito no eichi to eikou no hate
nibuku sutareta kako no ibutsu
sei o kurai tatazumu ibutsu e
ookina te ga watashi o michibiku

To the end of human’s intelligence and glory
Lies a memento of a weak dying past
Towards the standing abnormalities feasting upon life
A big hand is showing me the way


yasashii koe ga sasayaku
“sekai o sukuu hikari ni nare” to

A gentle voice whispers me
“Become the light which shall save the world!”


mui ni uchinarasu kodou
nanimo tsukamezu ni ita kono te ga
imi o kizameru no naraba
mayoi wa shinai

A throbbing ringing in idleness;
If with this hand, unable to grasp anything,
I can carve a meaning out of it
Than, I won’t be lost

“灾厄さえ打ち消し 新たな胎动へ。。。。。。!”

“saiyaku sae uchikeshi arata na taidou e…!”
hieta haikyo ni hibiku sakebi ni
kikinareta nukumori wa nakatta

“Deny every disaster, towards the new avenue..!”,
A scream echoes in the frozen ruins
The warmth I got used hearing, has disappeared.


yasashii koe o shinjite
fuan ni kidzukanai furi o shite…

Trust that gentle voice…
Pretend to be unable to notice your insecurities…


fui ni yurimodosu koe
kizu darake no kare wa na o yonde
tada hitori no tomo no tame
te o nobasu

Suddenly, a voice swinging back
The man covered in wound calls my name
I reach out my hand,
Even if it’s for the sake of a single companion

信じるべき人の手と 信じてくれる人の手

shinjirubeki hito no te to shinjitekureru hito no to
yuragi o dakinagara
naka e fumiireta

The hands of people I trust
And hands of people that trust me
While holding firmly to my tremor
I take a step to the inside


yasashii koe no shinjitsu o
satotteshimau mae ni me o tojita

I close my eyes just before ending up
Realizing the truth of that gentle voice

全て 亡き妻の为に堕ちたのだ、と……。

tsui ni ugoki dasu kodou
boushitu no musouka wa watashi ja naku
subete nakitsuma no tame ni ochita no da to…

Finally, my throbbing turns to movement
For I’m not that lost dreamer
“Everything crumbled down for the sake of the late wife”…


– Let’s be honest: I copied the lyrics from a chinese websites, so lots of kanjis are wrote in chinese instead of japanese, so they’re semplified and the text isn’t accurate. But I’m way too lazy to fix them all. That’s the only case something like that ever happened, so don’t be mad at my lazy-ass face for once c:

Sometimes I gaze at my shoes and think it's a nice genre. Mainly translating japanese music lyrics (Touhou / doujin / indie / etc) and Gaki no Tsukai clips (worked with Team Gaki too). 宜しくお願いしマスタースパーク。
