舞音KAGURA – 魂を燃やせ!!

煮え切らない思い抱えて
なんとなく過ごした日々
説明のつかない感情
難しい言葉など要らないと気付いたんだ

niekiranai omoi kakaete
nanto naku sugoshita hibi
setsumei no tsukanai kanjou
muzukashii kotoba nado iranai to kidzuita nda

I’ve somehow managed to let days pass
Holding up to my halfhearted thoughts
And I’ve realized I didn’t need any complex word
For all the feelings I can’t really explain

茜に染まった過去と今を癒す手段は
執念の炎と孤高の友

akane ni somatta kako to ima o iyasu shudan wa
shuunen no honoo to kokou no tomo

My past dyed in madder red and the way I’m healing it in my present
Are my implacable flames, my solitary allies

魂を燃やせ!! 尽きない命とともに
ヤツを道連れに最高の ShowTime
この世の終わりか不死の呪いどちらかが
勝利納める?この炎は消えない

tamashii o moyase!! tsukinai inochi to tomo ni
yatsu o michidzure ni saikou no ShowTime
kono yo no owari ka fushi no noroi dochira ka ga
shouri osameru? kono honoo wa kienai

Let your soul burn!! Together with your neverending life
Make them all follow you by force, it will be the best Show Time!
Whether this is the end of the world or a curse of eternal life
Can I achieve victory? These flames won’t vanish!

大嫌いだった月も人も
少しは許せたかな?
恨むことにも飽きたし
ただ彷徨うだけの抜け殻には興味がないの

daikirai datta tsuki mo hito mo
sukoshi wa yuruseta kana?
uramu koto ni mo akita shi
tada samayou dake no nukegara ni wa kyoumi ga nai no

I wonder if I could have forgiven just a bit
The Moon and all the people I’ve hated?
I’ve grown tired of bearing any grudge
Can a merely wandering empty vessel have any interest at all?

不自然に揺れる森の先へ突き立てた指
業火に抱かれる準備はいい?

fushizen ni yureru mori no saki e tsuki tateta yubi
gouka ni kakareru junbi wa ii?

A finger is pointing from the unnaturally swaying forest
Are you ready to be engulfed by the hell fire?

魂を燃やせ!! 生きてる証を探そう
私一人では見つけられない
永久の苦しみも刹那の安らぎとなれ
胸を焦がすこの炎は消えない

tamashii o moyase!! ikiteru akashi o sagasou
watashi hitori de wa mitsukerarenai
towa no kurushimi mo setsuna no yasuragi to nare
mune o kogasu kono honoo wa kienai

Let your soul burn!! Let’s find a proof of my “being alive”
‘Cause I can’t seem to find it just by myself
Become both the eternal suffering and the momentary serenity
For the flames burning in my chest won’t ever be extinguished

魂を燃やせ!! 尽きない命とともに
二人ならきっと分かり合える
聖なる裁きか気紛れな戯れかは
どうでもいいや!

tamashii o moyase!! tsukinai inochi to tomo ni
futari nara kitto wakari aeru
sei naru sabaki ka kimagure na tawamure ka wa
dou de mo ii ya!

Let your soul burn!! Together with your neverending life
I’m sure we’ll understand each other if we’ll be together
Whether it is an holy trial, or a caprice, or even a joke
I don’t really care at all!

魂を燃やせ!! 尽きない命とともに
たいくつ死の義理最高の ShowTime
この世の終わりか不死の呪いどちらかが
勝利納める?この炎は消えない

tamashii o moyase!! tsukinai inochi to tomo ni
yatsu o michidzure ni saikou no ShowTime
kono yo no owari ka fushi no noroi dochira ka ga
shouri osameru? kono honoo wa kienai

Let your soul burn!! Together with your neverending life
Make them all follow you by force, it will be the best Show Time!
Whether this is the end of the world or a curse of eternal life
Can I achieve victory? These flames won’t vanish!

Notes:

– I know I’ve translated “tamashii wo moyase” as “let your soul burn”, even though it should be “burn your soul up” or something like that (“let your soul burn” would have been “tamashi wo moyasasete” or something like that), but I like it much more this way: sounds better and it’s not far from its actual meaning.
– 死の義理 on the very last stanza is what I’m hearing in the song, not what I’ve found online, so it’s not 100% sure (I am, though).

[REQUEST] 少女フラクタル – 贅沢なエンドロール

【Requested by Kaori Hanayama

少女フラクタル – 贅沢なエンドロール

もう重苦しい肉もなく
宙を舞う
嗚呼幸福は目で追えぬ
狭間にあった

mou omogurushii niku mo naku
chuu o mau
aa koufuku wa me de oenu
hazama ni atta

I don’t have any heavy flesh burden anymore
And so I sway in the air
Aah, joy lied right in the threshold
Where my eyes can’t reach

ずっと支えてた
骨組みは灰になって
嗚呼不自由を失った
戻ることはない

zutto sasaeteta
honegumi wa hai ni natte
aa fujiyuu o ushinatta
modoru koto wa nai

The structure which always held me up
Now has crumbled in ashes
Aah, I’ve lost such inconvenience
And there’s no way to go back

時間の崩し方を知らずに
ゆらり静かに降る花を眺めていた

jikan no kuzushi kata o shirazu ni
yurari shizuka ni furu hana o nagameteita

And so, I’ve been gazing at the gently falling silent flowers
Without knowing the right way to destroy time itself

夜に凭れて滲む桜
流れないはずの
涙で囲んでいた
ここが最後に見る景色
願ってもない
贅沢なエンドロールだった

yoru ni motarete nijimu sakura
nagarenai hazu no
namida de kakonde ita
koko ga saigo ni miru keshiki
negatte mo nai
zeitakuna endorooru datta

The oozing cherry tree, reclined on the night
Was surrounded by tears
Which shouldn’t have flowed –
I didn’t even wished for
Here to be the last scenery I would have seen
Such a wasteful, luxurious endroll…

鍵を捨てて靴を脱いで
忘れ物はない
今薄まる空記憶流れ
全てが白ヘ混ざる

kagi o sutete kutsu o nuide
wasuremono wa nai
ima usumaru sora kioku nagare
subete ga shiro e mazaru

I threw the keys away and took my shoes off
There’s nothing I’ve forgotten
Memories are flowing in the now weakened sky
And everything is blending with its whiteness

積もり積もった
恥を見た消える前に
嗚呼注いでた溢れてた
愛も消えるだろう

tsumori tsumotta
haji o mita kieru mae ni
aa sosoideta afureteta
ai mo kieru darou

Everything was piled up
Before disappearing by looking at my shame
Aah, I wonder if the overflowing love I’ve poured
Will disappear along?

迷子にならない様に
あの木は花を散らして
悪目立ちしてるのだろう

maigo ni naranai you ni
ano ki wa hana o chirashite
warumedachi shiteru no darou

The tree made the flower fall down
So it won’t become a stray child –
I wonder if it’s just being obtrusive?

夜に凭れて滲む桜
流れないはずの
涙で囲んでいた
ここが最後と言えるから
願ってもない
贅沢なエンドロールだった

yoru ni motarete nijimu sakura
nagarenai hazu no
namida de kakonde ita
koko ga saigo to ieru kara
negatte mo nai
zeitakuna endorooru datta

The oozing cherry tree, reclined on the night
Was surrounded by tears
Which shouldn’t have flowed –
And I know, I can say this will be my end
Yet I didn’t even wish for it
Such a wasteful, luxurious endroll..

伸ばした手で
空を掴む
今なら届そうで
もう薄まる今
記憶は無く
全てが白に染まる

nobashita te de
sora o tsukamu
imanara todokesou de
mou usumaru ima
kioku wa naku
subete ga shiro ni somaru

So I seize the sky
With my outstretched hand
Now I feel like I could reach for it
But the present is already becoming dim
And memories are gone
And everything is painted in white

Notes:

– I think this song is about death, or rather, dying. That explains some “weird” sentences, like the one in the second stanza, where the “inconvenience” is “being alive” / “having a physical body”.
– The title of this song features the word “zeitaku” which is meant to be “luxurious”, but not in a positive way. By using “zeitaku”, you are also implying something to be wasteful, not necessary. That’s why I’ve added “wasteful” in the fourth stanza. (extra: if you want to say something is “luxurious” in Japanese without having it sound rude / having a feel of “wasteful” to it, you could use words such as “yutaka” or “houfu”)

Requested by Kaii Schwartz

幽閉サテライト – 泡沫、哀のまほろば

泡沫、そのまほろば
触れたくて…

utakata, sono mahoroba
furetakute…

I want to lay my fingers
Over an ephemeral, splendid land of sorrow…

そっと指で撫でたくても
残る灯火が僕を邪魔する

sotto yubi de nadetakute mo
nokoru tomoshibi ga boku o jama suru

Even if I’d caress it lightly with my finger
The light it leaves would be a hindrance to me

君の静寂恋せども
焔は消えない

kimi no seijaku koise domo
homura wa kienai

Even though I love your quietness
The flame won’t vanish

ああ…それなら
君の傍らでこの身、沈めよう
心だけを殺して

aa… sore nara
kimi no katawara de kono mi, shizumeyou
kokoro dake o koroshite

Aahh… If it’s like that
I’ll let this body of mine sink right beside you
And suppress my heart alone

泡沫、君のようだ
触れて壊さぬように
刹那、哀のまほろば
見守るよ

utakata, kimi no you da
furete kowasanu you ni
setsuna, ai no mahoroba
mimamoru yo

Ephemeral, just like you,
Touching it so it won’t break
Momentary, splendid land of sorrow
I’m watching over it

行き場の無い「優しさ」だけ
僕の心を漂うばかり

yukiba no nai “yasashisa” dake
boku no kokoro o tadayou bakari

Only my “kindness” with no place to go
Is drifting aimlessly in my heart, nothing else

それが無駄だとしても
これしか出来ない

sore ga muda da to shite mo
kore shika dekinai

And even if it may be something useless
I can’t do anything but let it be

失って気付いてしまう、と
僕は分かってた臆病なだけだった

ushinatte kidzuite shimau, to
boku wa wakatteta okubyouna dake datta

I ended up noticing it the moment I’ve lost it,
And by that I realized I was just a coward

泡沫、君のようだ
遅すぎたエゴイズム
伝えることも出来ず
消えてった…

utakata, kimi no you da
ososugita egoizumu
tsutaeru koto mo dekizu
kietetta…

Ephemeral, just like you
My egoism was too late
And it vanished away
As I couldn’t even convey it…

君を困らせたいほど
真実の愛なのに
終焉のさだめから
逃げていた

kimi o komarasetai hodo
shinjitsu no ai na no ni
shuuen no sadame kara
nigeteita

I ran away
As if I wanted to cause trouble to you
From my fate of demise
Even though my love was true

泡沫、夢のような
仮初めの恋でした
決して思い出になど
させはしない

utakata, yume no you na
karisome no koi deshita
kesshite omoide ni nado
sase wa shinai

Ephemeral, just like a dream
It was a transient love
And I won’t let it become
Part of my memories or such

いつまでも

itsumademo

No matter what

Notes:

– Not really sure, but I think the song is some sort of Touhou-fanmade anime opening. Never been that interested in those so I can’t really tell, but I’m guessing the video I’ve found featuring this song seems pretty legit.

SOUND HOLIC – Dirty Purity

欠けた月 食い込んだ刃
君に君に君に触れる
閉じた夢焼き付いたまま
君に君に君に落ちる
浮かんだ笑顔に 差し込む狂気
もう止められないいびつな狂気

kaketa tsuki kui konda yaiba
kimi ni kimi ni kimi ni fureru
tojita yume yaki tsuita mama
kimi ni kimi ni kimi ni ochiru
ukanda egao ni sashi komu kyouki
mou tomerarenai ibitsu na kyouki

The blade piercing the waning Moon
Is being touched by you, you, you
As the shut away dreams burned into my memories
Fall down over you, you, you
The madness shining over my faint smile
Is so warped I can’t stop it anymore

静かな海に浮かんだ
小さな星を集めて
逆さま泳いでみて 君を壊したい

shizukana umi ni ukanda
chiisa na hoshi o atsumete
sakasama oyoide mite kimi o kowashitai

Gathering up all the small stars
Floating over the Sea of Tranquillity
So I could swim upside down – I want to destroy you

燃えて 揺れて 何度でも 消して
何もかもが不浄

moete yurete nando demo keshite
nani mo kamo ga fujou

Burn, shake, disappear, more and more
Everything and anything is impure

爆ぜた夢 焦げ付いた愛が
君に君に君に触れる
落ちた夢 涙の波間
君が君が君が滲む
溶け出す痛みに吐き出す狂気
もう止められない いびつな狂気

hazeta yume koge tsuita ai ga
kimi ni kimi ni kimi ni fureru
ochita yume namida no namima
kimi ga kimi ga kimi ga nijimu
toke dasu itami ni haki dasu kyouki
mou tomerarenai ibitsu na kyouki

The split up dream of the love I’ve been burned with
Is touching you, you, you
Falling down between the waves of my tears
You, you, you’re spreading it
The madness I’m spitting out from my melting pain
Is so warped I can’t stop it anymore

遥か遠くに浮かべた
小さな夢を砕いて
醜い 声を上げて 君を 壊したい

haruka tooku ni ukabeta
chiisa na yume o kudaite
minikui koe o agete kimi o kowashitai

Smashing all those little dreams
Floating over the farthest distance
Rising up a fiendish voice – I want to destroy you

泣いて 揺れて 美しく 視えて
何もかもが不浄

naite yurete utsukushiku miete
nani mo kamo ga fujou

Crying, trembling, looking so beautiful
Everything and anything is impure

踏み込む闇に隠れた
小さな嘘が怖くて
巫山戯た 夢を視てる 君を 壊したい

fumi komu yami ni kakureta
chiisa na uso ga kowakute
fuzaketa yume o miteru kimi o kowashitai

Fearing those little lies
Hidden in the darkness I’m stepping into
Gazing into a dream – I want to destroy you

消えて 消えて 鮮やかに 消えて
何もかもが不浄

kiete kiete azayaka ni kiete
nani mo kamo ga fujou

Disappear, disappear, disappear so clearly
Everything and anything is impure

Notes:

– Second stanza: the Sea of Tranquillity (Mare Tranquilitatis) is one of the Moon’s seas. In the Touhou universe, it’s a proper sea, with water and everything.
– Fourth to last stanza: “minikui” is most likely “ugly” or “horrible”, but I couldn’t find them both appropriate for the subject (“voice”), so I choose “fiendish” instead (which doesn’t change its meaning that much).

凋叶棕 – ―巳の三つ―「疵とマントと〇〇心」

あんたはなんにもしらない

You don’t know anything
You know nothing, nothing I say

世界をどれほど知っているのか考えてみても

Even if you try to think about how much you know about this world

けして及びもつかない
てんでおはなしにもならない

keshite oyobi mo tsukanai

It’s something you’ll never grasp
There’s not a chance in heavens you will

人に混じって生きるモノの数多ささえも

hito ni majitte ikiru mono no kazuoosa sae mo

And neither those multitudes living among humans will

それでも誰かと
ともに生きることなどない
孤高にして孤独
それが誇らしき在り方

soredemo dareka to
tomo ni ikiru koto nado nai
kokou ni shite kodoku
sore ga hokorashiki arikata

Yet still you haven’t lived
Together with someone else at all
By your proudly indipendent loneliness
That’s such a haughty way to be

だのに
どいつもこいつも全部目障りなのよ すごく!
そんな眼をしながらこっちを見ないでよ

da no ni
doitsu mo koitsu mo zenbu mezawari na no yo sugoku!
sonna me o shinagara kocchi o minaide yo

Yet still
Everybody is just an eyesore, for real!
Don’t just stare this way with that kind of look

痺れるような視線を浴びるたび
ああ!この疵の痛み『体中』を

shibireru you na shisen o abiru tabi
aa! kono kizu no itami kubi kara shita o

Each time I’m soaked in this seemingly trembling gaze
Ahh! I can feel the pain of this wound all the way down my neck

ぐるぐるぐるぐるまわっていく。

guruguruguruguru mawatteiku.

Spinning round and round and round in circles.

どいつもこいつもだらしない
とにかくみんなふがいない

doitsu mo koitsu mo dara shinai
tonikaku minna fugainai

Everyone’s too careless
In any case, everyone’s worthless

お祭りごとに現を抜かす愚昧愚民どもは

omatsuri goto ni utsutsu o nukasu gumai gumin domo wa

All these absurdly ignorant people straying away from reality on each occasion

大きなものがみえてない
大事なことをわかってない

ookina mono ga mietenai
daiji na koto o wakatte nai

Aren’t looking at the big things
And can’t understand what’s important

あんたたちの隣人をこそ恐れるべきだと

antatachi no rinjin o koso osoreru beki da to

You all should be afraid of those next to you as they told you

外套に隠してる
この恐怖の全て
知って恐れをなせと
睨みを利かせているのに

manto ni kakushiteru
kono kyoufu no subete
shitte osore o nase to
nirami o kikaseteiru no ni

All this fear
I’m hiding beneath my mantle –
I know, I’m afraid it’s there
Even though I’m displaying my glare

だのに
どいつもこいつも全部鈍感なのよ すごく!
そんな眼の色で遠巻きに見ているだけ

da no ni
doitsu mo koitsu mo zenbu donkan na no yo sugoku!
sonna me no iro de toomaki ni miteiru dake

Yet still
Everybody is just so dull, for real!
They’re just staring at me from a distance with their colored eyes

それでもなぜかその眼を意識するたび
ああ!何かを期待させるような予感

soredemo naze ka sono me o ishikisuru tabi
aa! nanika o kitai saseru you na yokan

And yet, for some reason, each time I become aware of those eyes
Aah! I feel like a premonition of expectation for something…

うずうずうずうずうずいていく。

uzuuzuuzuuzuuzuiteiku.

Growing impatient more and more and more and more.

柳の下で 独り佇むの
増長するものども 群衆の中で

yanagi no shita de hitori tatazumu no
zouchou suru mono domo gunshuu no naka de

I’m standing still, alone under the willows
In the midst of crowds of arrogants

外套の下に 隠されたものが
なんなのか誰も 知ろうとしないまま

manto no shita ni kakusareta mono ga
nanna no ka daremo shirou to shinai mama

And still, no one is trying to figure out
Nothing that’s hidden beneath my mantle

きっとどこかしらで
求めているのか
大胆さと踏み込む契機
ひっかかりながらもこの場所でずっと

kitto doko kashira de
motometeiru no ka
daitansa to fumi komu keiki
hikkakari nagara mo kono basho de zutto

I’m sure that somewhere
I’m seeking for it
For a chance to step into it, audaciously,
In this place, all the way, while making connections

だ・の・に!
どいつもこいつも全部意気地なしなのよ すごく!
この私にもうここまでさせておいて

da・no・ni!
doitsu mo koitsu mo zenbu ikuji nashi na no yo sugoku!
kono watashi ni mou koko made sasete oite

And ・ Yet ・ Still!
Everybody is just so spineless, for real!
They just made me the way I’ve become to this point

外套の下の疵の疼きが止められないまま
恐怖と自尊心の狭間で
ぐらぐらぐらぐらぐらぐらぐらぐら揺れている

manto no shita no kizu no uzuki ga tomerarenai mama
kyoufu to puraido no hazama de
guraguraguraguraguraguraguragura yureteiru

As the ache from the wound under my mantle won’t stop,
In the threshold between fear and pride
Everything sways, shaking and shaking, so unsteady

Notes:

– Seventh stanza: 体中 (karadajuu, “the whole body”) is read as “kubi kara shita” (首から下), meaning “down from my neck”. The meaning is the same, I guess.
– 外套 “gantou” (“mantle”) is read as “manto” (マント “mantle”) each time it appears on this song.
– Last stanza: not sure about 自尊心 (“jisonshin”) reading, but I think it says “puraido” (プライド, “pride” in english), which is also close to the japanese word.

SILENT DIFFERENCE – 崩壊の虚像

残響に流し込まれた憎悪
引き金から生まれる神話
信仰を試す亡者のワルツ
何を意味する胸の痛み

zankyou ni nagashi komareta zouo
hikigane kara umareru shinwa
shinkou o tamesu mouja no warutsu
nani o imi suru mune no itami

This hatred washed down into the echo
Is the myth born from a gunlock,
A waltz for the dead, testing their faith –
An anguish trying to hold a meaning

遮るの定義の破滅に切り裂かれた表情
苦しみの片隅で波打つ快感に満たされた症状

saegiru no teigi no hametsu ni kiri sakareta hyoujou
kurushimi no katasumi de namiutsu kaikan ni mitasareta shoujou

This expression tore in pieces by the destruction of the concept of obstruction
Is a symptom of fulfilling that pleasant feeling of dashing against the corner of pain

正気を感じぬ妄想
ドタマイカれた俺はサイコパス
石膏の偽骸から覗く
しゃぶり尽くされた至福の塔

shouki o kanjinu mousou
dotamaikareta ore wa saikopasu
sekkou no nise-mukuro kara nozoku
shaburi tsukusareta shifuku no tou

No sanity is felt in such delusion,
I am a psychopath
Peeping inside a fake corpse made of plaster
I saw the tower of bliss being chewed on

冷血に悪魔は笑う
群れる常識 猿の宴

reiketsu ni akuma wa warau
mureru joushiki saru no utage

Demons are smiling cold bloodedly
My common sense crowded like feasting primates

舞い散る耽美な貞操観念
逆十字の因果人
豚小屋から始まる
血を血で洗う盲目の愉悦

maichiru tanbina teisou kan’nen
gyaku juuji no ingajin
butagoya kara hajimaru
chi o chi de arau moumoku no yuetsu

My aesthetical sense of virtue slowly scatters down
I’m bound to such karma, on an upside-down cross
It began from a pigsty
This blind joy of washing away blood with other blood

煩悩蠢く規律の箱庭
挽歌で飾る正義論
死んだまま生かされて眠る
愚直なまでに木霊する願望

bon’nou ugomeku kiritsu no hakoniwa
banka de kazaru seigi-ron
shinda mama ikasarete nemuru
guchokuna made ni kodama suru ganbou

Klesha – gardens of crawling regulations
Theories of righteousness decorated by elegies
Brought back to life, asleep, from a state of death
With a desires echoing to the point it becomes stupidly true

隣人から奪われた思想
泥舟で渡る未来に明日を請う

rinjin kara ubawareta shisou
dorobune de wataru mirai ni asu o kou

My thoughts are stolen by those near me
Begging for a future I could cross with a mud boat

一瞬の過ちが
愛するもの全てを無に還す

isshun no ayamachi ga
aisuru mono subete o mu ni kaesu

The error of an instant
Returned everyone I loved into nothingness

崩れ落ちる瓦礫の花
忘却の果てに沈む太陽
立ち直れる頃には
誰も名前すら覚えていない

kuzure ochiru gareki no hana
boukyaku no hate ni shizumu taiyou
tachi naoreru koro ni wa
daremo namae sura oboeteinai

By the time
The crumbling down flower made of debris
Recovers under the Sun sinking down at the end of oblivion
It couldn’t remember not even a single name of anyone

沈黙を嫌う理想
狂える闇 嗚咽と今

kurueru yami oetsu to ima

My ideals hating on silence
Now – it weeps – a maddening darkness

女神の手が

理性を舌でなぞり絡ませ溶かす

The hand of the goddess
And the morning she gave life to
Entwining and dissolving, her tongue tracing my reasons

I never want your tolerance.
I don’t believe you anymore.

女神の手が
産み出す愛に
吊るされ
滴る血でグラスを注ぐ

megami no te ga
umidasu ai ni
tsurusare
shitataru chi de gurasu o sosogu

Over the hanged
Love
Given birth by the hand of the goddess
Its dripping blood filling up a glass

異臭まみれの
動かぬ造形
瞼は閉じずに
剥き出しのまま…

ishuu mamire no
ugokanu zoukei
mabuta wa tojizu ni
mukidashi no mama…

The unmoving molding
Drenched in a foul smell
Stays bare, still
Without closing its eyelids…

Notes:

– Third stanza: ドタマイカ (dotamaika-(reta)) is a word I have no idea what means. I haven’t heard it before, couldn’t find anything online / dictionaries. The verb appears in katakana, the Japanese “alphabet” for writing foreign words as well as marking some words just like our CAPS LOCK does. The part “reta” coming after it makes it like a verb, and if we take “ore” (“me”, “I”) coming after it, it’s like it says “The me who was [dotamaika]”. So, we know the function of this word, but not its meaning. Being its function merely adjectival, the remaining sections don’t suffer much change. So I’m simply leaving the word out of my translation, but if anyone has some kind of idea about what that word could mean, please leave a comment! It’ll help a lot.
– Sixth stanza: Klesha (煩悩) is buddhist concept involving polluting and dark thoughts such as hatred, envy, delusion or greed taking over someone’s mind and causing them to suffer.
