ひとり泣きながら
閉じこもり俯く君
君の辛い顔
これ以上見たくない

hitori naki nagara
toki komori utsumuku kimi
kimi no tsurai kao
kore ijou mitakunai

While crying all alone
you hung your head, shutting yourself in
I don’t want to see
your sullen face anymore

君の価値観 狂わせてあげるから
ネガティブは もう卒業しよう

kimi no kachikan kuruwasete ageru kara
negatibu wa mou sotsugyou shiyou

I’ll drive your sense of values off the tracks
so let’s move on from all the negative

さあ 自由奔放に セカイを遊んでみよう
遊ばれてばっかりじゃ つまんなくなっちゃうよ
みんなは君の笑顔 待ち望んでいるよ
せーので笑っちゃおう
はい Peace!

saa jiyuu honpou sekai o asonde miyou
asobarete bakkari ja tsumannaku nacchau yo
minna wa kimi no egao machi nozondeiru yo
see no de waracchaou
hai Peace!

Come on, let’s have fun free in the world
Being played with all the time just makes you bored
Everyone’s waiting in anticipation for your smile
On the count of three, let’s smile
Yeah, peace!

少しずつ笑顔
取り戻し戸惑う君
君のその変化は
輝かしい成長だよ

sukoshi zutsu egao
tori modoshi tomadou kimi
kimi no sono henka wa
kagayakashii seichou da yo

Little by little, you take back
your smile and are baffled
That change of yours
is a gorgeous growth

頑張る君の幸せを願ってる
ポジティブになった君を見せて?

ganbaru kimi no shiawase o negatteru
pojitibu ni natta kimi o misete?

We’re wishing for your happiness as you do your best
Will you show us your positive self?

さあ 自由奔放に セカイを遊んでみよう
遊ばれてばっかりじゃ 不公平だもんね
私は君のそばにいつだっているから
一緒に笑っちゃおう
はい Peace!

saa jiyuu honpou ni sekai o asonde miyou
asobarete bakkari ja fukouhei da mon ne
watashi wa kimi no soba ni itsu datte iru kara
issho ni waracchaou
hai Peace!

Come on, let’s have fun free in the world
Being played with all the time isn’t fair
I’ll always be by your side after all
so let’s smile together
Yeah, peace!

さあ 自由奔放に セカイを遊んでみよう

ほら 自由奔放に セカイを遊んでみよう
遊ばれてばっかりじゃ もったいない!
みんなは君のそばに いつだっているから
最高の笑顔

Look, let’s have fun free in the world
Being played with all the time is just a waste!
Everyone will always be by your side after all
so let’s give them the best smile
Yeah, peace!

Battle Against Mother Nature

Requested by Andrew. I think this album is completely done now. I’ll never forget how easy it was to format all the posts for this one, since the information was mostly the same each song.

★ Title: BATTLE AGAINST MOTHER NATURE
☆ Album: >>>>
★ Album Artist: ZYTOKINE
☆ Vocals: cold kiss (Nana Takahashi (高橋 菜々))
★ Arrangement and lyrics: Linjin (隣人)
☆ Original Title: The Lost Emotion (亡失のエモーション)
★ Website: http://zytokine-web.com/


いつか忘れていく 一瞬の輝き
大きな流れに 置いてけぼりの夢
希望の果ての愛

itsu ka wasurete iku isshun no kagayaku
ooki na nagare ni oitekebori no yume
kibou no hate no ai

Someday I’ll forget, that moment of shining
The dream left behind in a great current
Love at the end of hope

巡る世界の理の鎖から
抜け出すための力
希望という儚い夢

meguru sekai no kotowari no kusari kara
nuke dasu tame no chikara
kibou to iu hakanai yume

The power to escape from the chains
of the ways of the revolving world
A fleeting dream called hope

闘う意思を 胸に刻んで 未来を描いて
独りきりで 願った希望の価値は
闘う意味を 求めすぎて また見失って
通り過ぎた 世界の嘘に焼かれたまま 僕は

tatakau ishi o mune ni kizande mirai o egaite
hitorikiri de negatta kibou no kachi wa
tatakau imi o motome sugite mata mi ushinatte
toori sugita sekai no uso ni yakareta mama boku wa

Carving the will to fight in my heart, I pictured the future
The value of the hope I wished for all alone
Seeking the meaning of fighting too much, I lost sight of it again
Remaining burned by the lies of the world, I passed through

いつか解けていく 一瞬の過ち
静かな流れに 逆らえない矛盾
無情の果ての愛

itsu ka hodokete iku isshun no ayamachi
shizuka na nagare ni sakaraenai mujun
mujou no hate no ai

Someday it’ll come undone, the momentary mistake
The paradox of being unable to fight the calm current
The love at the end being emotionless

笑う世界の理の呪縛から
逃れるための力
希望という儚い嘘

warau sekai no kotowari no jubaku kara
nogareru tame no chikara
kibou to iu hakanai uso

The power to escape from the curses
of the ways of the laughing world
A fleeting lie called hope

闘う意思を 力に変えて 軌跡を描いて
独りきりで 祈った希望の果てに
闘う意味も 知らないまま ただ灰になった
凍り付いた 世界の嘘を信じたまま 君は

tatakau ishi o chikara ni kaete kiseki o egaite
hitorikiri de inotta kibou no hate ni
tatakau imi mo shiranai mama tada hai ni natta
koori tsuita sekai no uso o shinjita mama kimi wa

I’ll turn my will to fight into power and draw my path
at the end of the hope I prayed for all alone
Not even knowing what it means to fight, I just turned to ash
As you believed in the world’s lies, you were frozen

闘う意思の 果てに消えた 命が凪いで
独りきりで 走る意味 問いかけた
闘う意味を ごまかしたまま また灰になった
独りきりで この世界と闘うとしても 僕

tatakau ishi no hate ni kieta inochi ga naide
hitorikiri de hashiru imi toi kaketa
tatakau imi o gomakashita mama mata hai ni natta
hitorikiri de kono sekai to tatakau toshitemo boku wa

At the end of the will to fight I faded, my life calmed
All alone, I questioned the meaning of running
Misrepresenting the meaning of fighting, I turned to ash again
Even if I fight against this world, I’m all alone

Judgment Princess

Requested by Kyubey. Probably not my best work.
I am again reminded how strange Japanese can be outside of literature. Not to mention, there’s a bit of classical grammar at work here which I am only vaguely familiar with.

Note: The other language that’s in there appears to be Latin, but google translate won’t help me.
Based on the title and the arrangement itself, this song seems to be related to Ancient Princess.

★ Title: Judgment Princess
☆ Album: Former Frontier 4th luxuriant
★ Album Artist: Seventh Heaven MAXION (セブンスヘブンMAXION)
☆ Vocals and lyrics: Oosera Ai (大瀬良あい)

雨はやがて 雪に変わり
灰色の空を染める

ame wa yagate yuki ni kawari
hai iro no sora o someru

Rain eventually turns into snow,
tinting the grey sky

懺悔響く 牢屋の中
そっと覗いてみましょう

zange hibiku rouya no naka
sotto nozoite mimashou

Let us peek carefully
into the jail, echoing with repentance

imul ic un Idyta
処刑の前の Divine
鎌首襲いし5秒前

imul ic un Idyta
shokei no mae no Divine
kamakubi osoi shi gobyou mae

imul ic un Idyta
The divine before the execution
Five seconds before the sickle-neck strikes

ist vest’n stria
死神は笑う
終焉来たりて 踊りましょ

ist vest’n stria
shinigami wa warau
shuuen kitarite odorimasho

ist vest’n stria
The reaper laughs
The end is near, so shall we dance?

裁かれる人が残した言葉は何故
欺瞞に溢れて脳裏を埋め尽くすの

sabakareru hito ga nokoshita kotoba wa naze
giman ni afuretre nouri o ume tsukusu no

Why do the final words of those that are judged,
teeming with lies, fill my mind?

ah 時代という名の断罪 それが正義など
ah 瞳のその奥 生を求めて

ah jidai to iu na no danzai sore ga seigi nado
ah hitomi no sono oku sei o motomete

Ah, judgement by the name of the age is justice, and so forth
Ah, deep in your eyes, you seek life

その手を離さずに進んでいけたのならば
愛と夢を胸に抱いて時は進む
選ぶべき道に迷いは時を歪ませ
愛と夢を胸に抱いて運命回る

sono te o hanasazu ni susunde iketa no naraba
ai to yume o mune ni daite toki wa susumu
erabu beki michi ni mayoi wa toki o yugamase
ai to yume o mune ni daite unmei mawaru

If I managed to go on without letting go of your hand,
embracing love and dreams in my chest, time would move on
Losing your way on the road that must be chosen distorts time
Embracing love and dreams in my chest, the wheel of fortune spins

imul ic un Idyta
処刑の前のDivine
鎌首襲いし3秒前

imul ic un Idyta
shokei no mae no Divine
kamakubi osoishi sanbyou mae

imul ic un Idyta
The divine before the execution
Three seconds before the sickle-neck strikes

ist vest’n stria
死神は笑う
終焉来たりて 踊りましょ

ist vest’n stria
shinigami wa warau
shuuen kitarite odorimasho

ist vest’n stria
The reaper laughs
The end is near, so shall we dance?

審判下す 人が残した言葉は何故
欺瞞に溢れて脳裏を焼きつくすの

shinban kudasu hito ga nokoshita kotoba wa naze
giman ni afurete nouri o yaki tsukusu no

Why do the final words of judges,
teeming with lies, remain burned into my mind?

ah 人を呪うなら その意味があるのだろう
ah 屍の上で もう眠りたい

ah hito o norou nara sono ima ga aru no darou
ah shikabane no ue de mou nemuritai

Ah, if you curse someone, is there any meaning?
Ah, I want to sleep already, above the corpses

その手を離さずに進んでいけたのならば
愛と夢を胸に抱いて時は進む
誰が言う正義 歪んだ民が望んだ
愛と夢を胸に抱いて運命回る

sono te o hanasazu ni susunde iketa no naraba
ai to yume o mune ni daite toki wa susumu
dare ga iu seiga hizunda tami a nozonda
ai to yume o mune ni daite unmei mawaru

If I managed to advance without letting go of your hand,
embracing love and dreams to my heart, time would move on
Whose justice did the twisted people desire?
Embracing love and dreams to my heart, the wheel of fortune spins

ah 時代という名の断罪 それが正義など
ah 瞳のその奥 生を求めて

ah jidai to iu na no danzai sore ga seigi nado
ah hitomi no sono oku sei o motomete

Ah, judgement by the name of the age is justice, and so forth
Ah, deep in your eyes, you seek life

imul ic un Idyta
処刑の前のDivine
鎌首襲いし2秒前

imul ic un Idyta
shokei no mae no Divine
kamakubi osoishi nibyou mae

imul ic un Idyta
The divine before the execution
Two seconds before the sickle-neck strikes

ist vest’n stria
神の名堕としたる
全ては仕組まれし 鎮魂曲

ist vest’n stria
kami no na otoshitaru
subete wa shikumareshi requiem

ist vest’n stria
The name of god falls
It’s all part of a conspired requiem

生命の刹那 冷たい刃先の
痛みを感じる瞬間に
愚かな罪背負いし
その薔薇の棘より
歪んだ口元が答えだろう

seimei no setsuna tsumetai hasaki no
itami o kanjiru shunkan ni
oroka na tsumi seoishi
sono bara no toge yori
hizunda kuchimoto ga kotae darou

The transience of life – The moment you feel the pain
of the cold blade’s edge,
foolish sin bearer,
your mouth, more twisted than a rose’s thorns,
will respond

double-edged love

Another semester over, another year over. It’s been a wild ride.
Now that break has started, I plan to translate a lot more and hopefully catch up on all these requests orz.
I mainly did this one because it’s the only song from the new Zytokine remix album coming out that I haven’t already translated.

★ Title: double-edged love
☆ Album: hundred hundred
★ Album Artist: ZYTOKINE
☆ Vocals: cold kiss (Nana Takahashi (高橋 菜々))
★ Arrangement and lyrics: Linjin (隣人)
☆ Original Title: The Positive and Negative

どこから どこまでが 自分なのかも 曖昧な この闇
何度目かの夢に 微睡む心を 抱いて眠るばかり

doko kara doko made ga jibun nano kamo aimai na kono yami
nandome ka no yume ni madoromu kokoro o daite nemuru bakari

Where do I begin and where do I end? It’s a vague kind of darkness
All I do is sleep clutching my heart, as it slumbers in its something’th dream

痛みを 忘れていた 暗闇は ひび割れ始める

itami o wasureteita kurayami wa hibi ware hajimeru

I forgot the pain, and the darkness begins to fissure

瞳を射る 眩しさに浮かんだ
僕という 黒い影 隠れていたはずの
知らなかった 世界が動き出す
それだけで 僕はまた 僕らしく いられる
君という名の 光に揺られて

hitomi o iru mabushisa ni ukanda
boku to iu kuroi kage kakureteita hazu no
shiranakatta sekai ga ugoki dasu
sore dake de boku wa mata boku rashiku irareru
kimi to iu na no hikari ni yurarete

I floated in the brightness piercing my eyes
The dark shadow called “me” was supposed to be hidden
A world I never knew about begins to move
Just from that alone, I can be myself again
being shaken by the light named “you”

何から 何まで 隠していられた 曖昧な この闇
照らされなければ ずっと有象無象で いられたはずなのに

nani kara nani made kakushite irareta aimai na kono yami
terasarenakereba zutto uzoumuzou de irareta hazu nanoni

How much could I have kept hidden? It’s a vague kind of darkness
If it wasn’t for the spotlight, I would’ve always been able to remain part of the crowd

近づくほどに 醜い世界が暴かれ 始める

chikadzuku hodo ni minikui sekai ga abakare hajimeru

The closer I get, the more an ugly world begins to be unveiled

瞳を射る 眩しさに焦がれた
僕という 黒い影 隠していたはずの
知らなかった 世界が色付いて
それなのに 僕はまた 僕らしく いられる
君という名の 光を求めて

hitomi o iru mabushisa ni kogareta
boku to iu kuroi kage kakushiteita hazu no
shiranakatta sekai ga irodzuite
sore nano ni boku wa mata boku rashiku irareru
kimi to iu na no hikari o motomete

I fell in love with the brightness piercing my eyes
It was supposed to have hidden the dark shadow called “me”
A world I never knew about begins to change colour,
but even so, I can be myself again
seeking the light named “you”

瞳を射る 眩しさは歪んで
僕という 黒い影 隠れていたはずの
暴かれたくないよ これ以上は
それなのに 僕はまた この手を 伸ばしてる
君という名の 光に焼かれて

hitomi o iru mabushisa wa yugande
boku to iu kuroi kage kakureteita hazu no
abakaretakunai yo kore ijou wa
sore nanoni boku wa mata kono te o nobashiteru
kimi to iu na no hikari ni yakarete

The brightness piercing my eyes distorts
The dark shadow called “me” was supposed to be hidden
I don’t want any more than this to be exposed,
but even so, I’m reaching out my hand again
being scorched by the light named “you”
