きのこ帝国 – 夜鷹

I wanted to bring yet another different type of song to this wordpress, and that’s why today’s post happened.
Well, technically this one is Shoegaze too, but it’s really different from other songs of this genre I’ve already posted before.
The lyrics are very long but repetitive, so it’s not actually that long.
I don’t know much about this song / band, but I know for sure that it caught my attention a lot. Definitely worth the listen, I promise. Give it a shot.

きのこ帝国 – 夜鷹

シリウス、ベガ、アルタイル、ティコの星
太陽から何億光年のこの場所で
細胞分裂をやめられないぼくらは
星巡りの唄をうたいながら泣いてる

shiriusu, bega, arutairu, tiko no hoshi
taiyou kara nan’oku kounen no kono basho de
saibou bunretsu o yamerarenai bokura wa
hoshi meguri no uta o utai nagara naiteru

Sirius, Vega, Altair, Tycho’s Nova –
In this place, far countless light years from the Sun
We, who can’t stop our own cells’ division
Are crying as we sing a song for the stars’ traced girth

シリウス、ベガ、アルタイル、ティコの星
シリウス、ベガ、アルタイル、ティコの星
星巡りの唄が絶えず鳴り響いて
無数の悲しみとともに、すべてを夜へ

shiriusu, bega, arutairu, tiko no hoshi
shiriusu, bega, arutairu, tiko no hoshi
hoshi meguri no uta ga taezu nari hibiite
musuu no kanashimi to tomo ni, subete o yoru e

Sirius, Vega, Altair, Tycho’s Nova –
Sirius, Vega, Altair, Tycho’s Nova –
A song for the stars’ traced girth is echoing without an end
And along with an endless sadness it drags all the night along

シリウス、ベガ、アルタイル、ティコの星
笑うあいつの目の奥は汚れている
手紙がとどいた朝の日のことを
ぼくらはきっと忘れるだろう

shiriusu, bega, arutairu, tiko no hoshi
warau aitsu no me no oku wa yogoreteiru
tegami ga todoita asa no hi no koto o
bokura wa kitto wasureru darou

Sirius, Vega, Altair, Tycho’s Nova –
Her smiling eyes are tainted on their depth;
Will we ever forget about that day
In which we sent that letter on that morning, I wonder?

殺すことでしか生きられないぼくらは
生きていることを苦しんでいるが、しかし
生きる喜びという
不確かだがあたたかいものに
惑わされつづけ、今も生きてる

korosu koto da shika ikirarenai bokura wa
ikiteiru koto o kurushindeiru ga, shikashi
ikiru yorokobi to iu
futashika da ga atatakai mono ni
madowasare tsudzuke, ima mo ikiteru

We, unable to live without killing,
Are striving and suffering in order to live, but
The joy of living…
It’s so uncertain and yet so warm, it keeps confusing us
And so we now live this way

殺すことでしか生きられないぼくらは
生きていることを苦しんでいるが、しかし
生きる喜びという
不確かだがあたたかいものに
惑わされつづけ、今を生きてる

korosu koto da shika ikirarenai bokura wa
ikiteiru koto o kurushindeiru ga, shikashi
ikiru yorokobi to iu
futashika da ga atatakai mono ni
madowasare tsudzuke, ima o ikiteru

We, unable to live without killing,
Are striving and suffering in order to live, but
The joy of living…
It’s so uncertain and yet so warm, it keeps confusing us
And so we now live this way

A song for the stars’ traced girth is echoing without an end
And along with an endless sadness it drags all the night…

Notes:

– Sirius, Vega, Altair and Tycho’s Nova are the names of 4 different stars. Vega and Altair forms the Summer triangle, but I don’t know if these 4 stars together symbolizes something or not. I’m guessing they’re some of the most radiant ones, so they’re simply the easiest to spot on the night sky.
– Fourth stanza “aitsu” is a third person, could be both “he” or “she”. I simply choose “she” because of my point of view / what this song made me think about.

About foregroundnoises

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。
