Ghoti ~東風谷早苗が想うこと~

そっとさよなら
風が運び連れ去るもの
乗せた祈り鶴 手のひらから離れ

sotto sayonara
kaze ga hakobi tsure saru mono
noseta ori tsuru te no hira kara hanare

A faint goodbye
To what was took away, carried away by the wind
Like a crane origami I placed on my palm

空の波間 浮かぶ泡が消えて弾けて
静寂に呑まれどこか見えなくなる

sora no namima ukabu awa ga kiete hajikete
shijima ni nomare doko ka mienaku naru

The bubbles floating between the sky’s waves burst open and disappear
Somewhere I can’t see, swallowed by stillness

今日も夕暮れ 燃える赫に染まる金鳥
番いは閨で幾度も産み堕とす

kyou mo yuugure moeru kaku ni somaru kin’u
tsugai wa neya de ikudo mo umi otosu

Today’s darkening Suns are still burning, dyed in bright red
They both will be born countless time in their sleep

悲しむだけ人はみなそれを忘れてゆく
いつか見たような過ち繰り返す

kanashimu dake hito wa mina sore o wasurete yuku
itsuka mita you na ayamachi kuri kaesu

But those only willing to suffer are all bound to forget such fact
And repeat the mistakes they once felt like having a glimpse of

――風車が廻る。

―― kazaguruma ga mawaru.

――The windmill is spinning.

空を游ぐ魚の群れ 列を成す無言の虚
流れてゆく厚い雲がもたらす夜を啄み

sora o oyogu sakana no mure retsu o nasu mugon no uro
nagarete yuku atsui kumo ga motarasu yoru o tsuibami

A group of fishes swimming through the sky forms an empty line of silence
Picking at the nightscape brought by the flowing thick clouds

灯火は涸れた川を流れいつか辿り着く、その岸へと。

tomoshibi wa kareta kawa o nagare itsuka tadori tsuku, sono kishi e to.

All these lights flowing down the dried up river will eventually arrive over that shore.

降って夕立ち 人はみなそれを避けゆく
わたしは独り雨に濡れて想う

futte yuudachi hito wa mina sore o sake yuku
watashi wa hitori ame ni nurete omou

Everyone is running away from the downpouring evening shower
And I’m here, alone, soaked by rain, having a revery

与えただけ人はそれを無碍にしてゆく
そして再び同じように求む

ataeta dake hito wa sore o muge ni shite yuku
soshite futatabi onaji you ni motomu

Only those who had it granted turn it into freedom
And again they search for it the same way

白夜に集う無数の魂たちが空へ昇る

byakuya ni tsudou musuu no tamashii tachi ga sora e noboru

Countless souls, assembled in this short night, are rising towards the sky

――影法師が踊る。

―― kageboushi ga odoru.

―― their silhouettes are dancing.

燃え盛る炎の中で限られた水を求め
裏切り合い屠りながら生きてなんになるというの

moe sakaru honoo no naka de kagirareta mizu o motome
uragiri ai hofuri nagara ikite nan ni naru to iu no

Searching for fresh, limited water in the midst of blazing flames
But what does it mean to live while slaughtering and betraying each other?

この枯れ果て痩せた土地へ恵みの雨を降らせて
こんなにも脆く儚く弱い存在を生かし…

kono kare hate yaseta tochi e megumi no ame o furasete
konna ni mo moroku hakanaku yowai sonzai o ikashi…

So I’ll let the rain of bliss pour down over this dried, withered soil
And I’ll let those overly frail, weak and transient beings live…

灯火は涸れた川を流ることはなく消える、その場所で。

tomoshibi wa kareta kawa o nagaru koto wa naku kieru, sono basho de.

In that place, where all these lights disappear without flowing down the dried up river.

Notes:

– 金鳥 on the third stanza is a word composed off the kanji for “gold” and “bird”. Its reading should be “kinchou”, but this doesn’t seem what the singer is saying. I’ve searched on several dictionaries for what it could actually mean / how it’s read. Turned out I’ve found more than a site indicating “kin’u” as its reading (and it seems to fit what the singer is saying) and some pages indicate that it’s a old way to refer to the Sun. It also says “tsugai” (pair) shortly thereafter, referring to the Sun. I’m guessing it’s referring to dawn and twilight, the two red-dyed Suns we can see during daytime.
– I had no space on the bottom section to write the title translation. It is “Ghoti – What Sanae Kochiya Imagines”

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。
