C-CLAYS – 66

Today’s post is 66 by C-Clays. Of course a Touhou arrange, and from one of my favourite themes, The Lost Emotion.
This song is amazing and funky as hell!
Of course it’s about Hata no Kokoro, and so it focuses on the character’s mindset. “What am I born for?”, “What am I?” and such.
66 is a reference to Kokoro’s mask, or, to say it in another way, the number of the emotions she gathered.

C-CLAYS – 66

絶望 失う事で知った痛み
ああ許されないと 自分に牙を向け
66の仮面に囚われ
ねぇ、どうかアタシを見ないで

zetsubou ushinau koto de shitta itami
aa yurusarenai to jibun ni kiba o muke
rokujuuroku no kamen ni toraware
nee, douka atashi o minai de

A pain I got to know after despairing over what I’ve lost…
Aah, “I won’t forgive you” as I point my own fangs against myself…
Took away by those 66 masks,
Hey, don’t you dare look at me

隠し続けた むき出しの心
重ねた仮面がコンプリートしていく
涙の色に戸惑わないで
流れた滴が濁っているの

kakushi tsudzuketa mukidashi no kokoro
kasaneta kamen ga konpuriito shite yuku
namida no iro ni tomadowanai de
nagareta shizuku ga nigotteiru no

My completely exposed heart that I kept on hiding
Has become complete with the masks I’ve piled up
Don’t get confused by the color of my tears,
For the flowing drops are growing turbid

失望 どこかで無くしてしまったの
ああ私は何のために生きてるの
66の仮面に奪われ
ねぇ、どうかアタシを探して

shitsubou doko ka de nakushite shimatta no
aa watashi wa nan no tame ni ikiteru no
rokujuuroku no kamen ni ubaware
nee, douka atashi o sagashite

I ended up losing my disappointment somewhere, but where?
Aah, just for which sake am I living for?
I’ve been caught by those 66 masks
Hey, would you find out where I lie?

叫び続けた傷だらけの心
失くしたナイフを 探しまた斬りつき
ボロボロの世界 憧れは遠く
流した滴も偽りと願う

sakebi tsudzuketa kizu darake no kokoro
nakushita naifu o sagashi mata kiritsuki
boroboro no sekai akogare wa tooku
nagashita shizuku mo itsuwari to negau

My scar-covered heart which kept on screaming
Is searching for the knife it has lost so it could cut it again;
The longing for this worn-out world is too distant,
And so I hope for this tears I let flow to be fake too.

失くした事で生まれる自由よ
終わらないで

nakushita koto de umareru jiyuu yo
owaranai de

That’s the freedom born from what I’ve lost
It won’t reach an end

守り続けた臆病な心
重ねた仮面が私に変わってく
諦めないでまだ間に合うと
心に刻む 迷いはないぞ

mamori tsudzuketa okubyouna kokoro
kasaneta kamen ga watashi ni kawatteku
akiramenaide mada ma ni au to
kokoro ni kizamu mayou wa nai zo

My timid heart that I’ve kept on protecting
Along with the mask I’ve piled up has changed who I am;
And so, I engrave on my own heart, without hesitation
“Don’t give up, you have still time to do it”.

もう誰でもない
I belong to me

mou dare demo nai
I belong to me

There’s no one, no more
I belong to me

Notes:

– “shitsubou” and “zetsubou” (first and third stanza) can be both translated as “despair”. “shitsubou” is more like despairing over something that wasn’t as one could have pictured. I guess it’s closer to “disappointment” rather than “despair”.
– 斬りつき (kiritsuki) could be both “to cut”, so “to cut again” in this case, but also refer to 斬月 (zangetsu, wrote with the same kanjis) which is a character for KAMEN-Rider (kamen = mask). It could be a reference to the show which featured masked superheroes, which we can link to Kokoro and her masks, in a funny way.

I'm a 23 y.o. italian guy, I have a degree in japanese language & culture and I'm currently advancing in my studies. I love music but I'm too self-destructive to attempt to produce it myself. 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。
