Red Tears Doll

This album really is good. I was originally planning on doing Infinity Infinity after this and calling it a wrap, but I might do 乙女桜♡Graduation too. It’s long, but it looks pretty fun.

生まれてからずっと この体を与えられ戦ってきたの でも
受け売りな形に疑問符が付いてから 空回りしてた

umarete kara zutto kono karada o ataerare tatakatte kita no demo
uke uri na katachi ni gimonfu ga tsuite kara karamawari shiteta

Ever since being born and given this body, I’ve always fought,
but after questioning this second hand form, it’s been futile

存在価値が何なのか 答えが見いだせない
あの闇の扉から差す光の行方は

sonzai kachi ga nan nano ka kotae ga mii dasenai
ano yami no tobira kara sasu hikari no yukue wa

What value does my life hold? I can’t find out an answer
As to where the light at the end of the tunnel is

Red Tears 流れた瞳が映した世界で 生かされていた窮屈な場所
もしも許されるなら夢を持ちたい 胸に高鳴るという情熱
口に出来ない憧れ抱いて 明日のページに そっとしたためた

Red Tears nagareta hitomi ga utsushita sekai de ikasareteita kyuukutsu na basho
moshi mo yurusareru nara yume o mochitai mune ni takanaru to iu jounetsu
kuchi ni dekinai akogare daite asu no peeji ni sotto shitatameta

In the world that the eyes that shed red tears reflects, I was made use of in close quarters
If I am permitted, I want to have dreams, passion that races through my heart
Embracing a yearning that I can’t put into words, gently I wrote on the page of tomorrow

押し殺す気持ちに終止符を 真っ直ぐに想いをぶつけた

oshi korosu kimochi ni shuushifu o massugu ni omoi o butsuketa

I put an end to my stifled feelings and directly released how I felt

存在意義に逆らって この外を見てみたい
どうか勇気を下さい 一歩踏み出す強さを

sonzai igi ni sakarette kono soto o mite mitai
douka yuuki o kudasai ippo fumi dasu tsuyosa o

I want to go against my life’s purpose, and try seeing what’s outside
Please, give me courage and strength to take the first step

Red Tears 溢れた涙で染まった心に 新たな意思が芽生え始めた
時に争う事が辛く苦しい 役に立たない罪の感情
抑えきれない欲望の果て サヨナラの文字 赤く滲んでく

Red Tears afureta namida de somatta kokoro ni arata na ishi ga mebae hajimeta
toki ni arasou koto ga tsuraku kurushii yaku ni natanai tsumi no kanjou
osae kirenai yokubou no hate sayonara no moji akaku nijinde ku

In my heart, stained by overflowing red tears, a new will began to sprout
Fighting every now and then is painfully strenuous, I feel sin for abandoning my duty
At the end of irrepressible desire, the letters of goodbye bleed red

存在意義に逆らって この外を見てみたい
どうか勇気を下さい 一歩踏み出す強さを

sonzai igi ni sakarette kono soto o mite mitai
douka yuuki o kudasai ippo fumi dasu tsuyosa o

I want to go against my life’s purpose, and try seeing what’s outside
Please, give me courage and strength to take the first step

So Sad あなたと過ごした思い出大事に 胸に仕舞って生きて行こうと
No Fears 自由を手にする喜び 自ら初めて選び満たされてゆく
けして許されない道だと知っても きっと未来に後悔はない
与えてくれた恩義を抱いて 過去のページに そっとしたためた
時に争う事が辛くて 役に立てずに不甲斐無かった
抑えきれない欲望の果て サヨナラの文字 書き残し去った Forever

So Sad anata to sugoshita omoide daiji ni mune ni shimatte ikite yukou to
No Fears jiyuu o te ni suru yorokobi mizukara hajimete erabi mitasarete yuku
keshite yurusarenai michi da to shittemo kitto mirai ni koukai wa nai
ataete kureta ongi o daite kako no peeji ni sotto shitatameta
toki ni arasou koto ga tsurakute yaku ni tatezu ni fugai nakatta
osae kirenai yokubou no hate sayonara no moji kaki nokoshi satta Forever

So Sad, I vow to live on with the precious memories of time I spent with you in my heart
No Fears, having chosen for myself for the first time, I’m filled with the joy of freedom
Even though it’s a road that’s absolutely unpermitted, I’m sure I won’t regret this in the future
Embracing the debt that I owe you, gently I write on the page of yesterday
Fighting every now and then is painful, it was cowardly to abandon my duty
At the end of irrepressible desire, the letters of goodbye, I leave written behind forever

Avatar Control

Man, this is the most chuuni song I’ve ever heard, and it’s great.

Avatar Control!

Faith – Believing I can obtain even a high level skill
Great – Embracing the manual, someday, I’ll cross this difficult wall

Synchronizing magnificently with an avatar body
On the mark, our breaths align and our souls become one

Come, now’s the time to test my magical power!

Crystals of exertion scatter into five colours
Continue to whip my wearing out body

名誉賭けた戦い 蘇る羞恥心
二度と味わいたくないから 負けられない

nido to ajiwaitakunai kara makerarenai

It’s a battle with honour on the line, my shame revives
I don’t want to taste that ever again, so I can not lose!

Regret

This is the third song titled “Regret” I’ve posted on this site.
I gained a new appreciation for this album, so I may also do Infinity Infinity and Avatar Control.

裏切りの色は 儚い色
その美しさに 震え続けてる
裏切りの色は 優しい色
その美しさに 怯え続けてる

uragiri no iro wa hakanai iro
sono utsukushisa ni furue tsudzuketeru
uragiri no iro wa yasashii iro
sono utsukushisa ni obie tsudzuketeru

The colour of betrayal is a fleeting colour
I’m continuing to tremble in it’s beauty
The colour of betrayal is a gentle colour
I’m continuing to be afraid of it’s beauty

傷をつけることさえ もう何も感じない
どんな言葉も今は 響くことはない
だけど だけど だけど 汚したこの両手で

kizu o tsukeru koto sae mou nani mo kanjinai
donna kotoba mo ima wa hibiku koto wa nai
dakedo dakedo dakedo yogoshita kono ryoute de

Even when causing pain, nothing anymore do I feel
Now, no matter what words you say, there’s no sonority
However, however, however, with these two dirtied hands of mine

掴めたものなんて 何一つなかったね
歪んだ記憶が何度も蘇る
守れたものなんて 何一つなかったね
彷徨い続けて どこへいけばいいのかな
どこへ…

tsukameta mono nante nani hitotsu nakatta ne
yuganda kioku ga nando mo yomigaeru
mamoreta mono nante nani hitotsu nakatta ne
samayoi tsudzukete doko e ikeba ii no kana
doko e…

there hasn’t been a single thing that I’ve been able to catch
Twisted memories revive countlessly
There hasn’t been a single thing that I’ve been able to protect
Continuing to roam, I wonder, just where should I go?
Where to…?

裏切りの声は 哀しい夢
その美しさに 焦がれ続けてる
裏切りの傷は 優しい棘
その美しさは 崩れ始めてる

uragiri no koe wa kanashii yume
sono utsukushisa ni kogare tsudzuketeru
uragiri no kizu wa yasashii toge
sono utsukushisa wa kuzure hajimeteru

The voice of betrayal is a sorrowful dream
I’m continuing to yearn for it’s beauty
The scar of betrayal is a gentle thorn
It’s beauty is beginning to collapse

優しかった声さえ もう何も聞こえない
どんな光も今は 届くことはない
だけど だけど だけど 滲んだこの両目で

yasashikatta koe sae mou nani mo kikoenai
donna hikari mo ima wa todoku koto wa nai
dakedo dakedo dakedo nijinda kono ryoume de

Even the voice that was gentle, nothing anymore can I hear
Now, no matter what light there is, there’s no reaching me
However, however, however, with these two blurred eyes of mine

映せたものなんて 何一つなかったね
歪んだ景色が何度も蘇る
壊せたものなんて 何一つなかったね
失い続けて 何も償えないまま
どこへ…

utsuseta mono nante nani hitotsu nakatta ne
yuganda keshiki ga nando mo yomigaeru
kowaseta mono nante nani hitotsu nakatta ne
ushinai tsudzukete nani mo tsugunaenai mama
doko e…

there hasn’t been a single thing that I’ve been able to reflect
Twisted sceneries revive countlessly
There hasn’t been a single thing that I’ve been able to destroy
Continuing to lose, I remain unable to make up for anything
Where to…?

奪っては 奪われて
何一つ 残らないと わかっていたのに
なのに なのに なのに なのに

ubatte wa ubawarete
nani hitotsu nokoranai to wakatteita noni
nanoni nanoni nanoni nanoni

Stealing and being stolen from
Even though I understood there wouldn’t be a single thing left,
despite that, despite that, despite that, despite that,

掴めたものなんて 何一つなかったね
歪んだ記憶が何度も蘇る
守れたものなんて 何一つなかったね
彷徨い続けて どこへいけばいいのかな
どこへ…

tsukameta mono nante nani hitotsu nakatta ne
yuganda kioku ga nando mo yomigaeru
mamoreta mono nante nani hitotsu nakatta ne
samayoi tsudzukete doko e ikeba ii no kana
doko e…

there hasn’t been a single thing that I’ve been able to catch
Twisted memories revive countlessly
There hasn’t been a single thing that I’ve been able to protect
Continuing to roam, I wonder, just where should I go?
Where to…?

Seeds of Life

First of all, I have to say that the lyricist, Blue E, has some nice English. That final stanza is just great. Secondly, I love slow songs like this, though Yurika generally does more hardcore ones.

Notes: The sephirot is this thing, basically the Jewish tree of life, if I understand correctly.

Dreamin’ 微睡むように
Breathin’ 囁くように
星の行方が証すのは
愛の理の儚さ

Dreamin’ madoromu you ni
Breathin’ sasayaku you ni
hoshi no yukue ga akasu no wa
ai no kotowari no hakanasa

Dreaming, as if in a slumber
Breathin’, as if whispering
It is the transience of logic in love
that the whereabouts of the stars prove

遥か古の不可思議な調べを
月明かりの下で呟くだけ

haruka ishinie no fukashigi na shirabe o
tsuki akari no shita de tsubuyaku dake

I merely mutter a mystical song
from days long past under the moonlight

I’ll give my heart to my belief 灯すは気高き焔
幾つもの幻が浮かび消えて逝く
誰も気づけない手掛かりを手繰り寄せて
描き出すセフィロト 罪深き性 seeds of life

I’ll give my heart to my belief tomosu wa kedakaki honoo
ikutsu mo no maboroshi ga ukabi kiete yuku
dare mo kidzukenai tegakari o taguri yosete
egaki dasu sefiroto tsumibukaki saga seeds of life

I’ll give my heart to my belief, I’ll light flames of nobility
Countless numbers of apparitions float up, disappear, and die
I reel in a clue that nobody is able to notice
The sephirot that draws forth, grave sin in nature, seeds of life

風が景色を揺らして 永遠の誓いを霞ませた

kaze ga keshiki o yurashite towa no chikai o kasumaseta

The wind rocked the scenery, caused this eternal vow to grow hazy

禁じられた術 偽りの生命を
人形に宿して操るだけ

kinjirareta sube itsuwari no inochi o
hitogata ni yadoshite ayatsuru dake

It’s a forbidden art, to merely puppeteer a human shaped doll
with an artificial life conceived within

I miss my love for my soul 閉ざした記憶の欠片
彷徨える魂が拉がれて歪む
誰も応えず 冷たい笑みを浮かべて
創り出すレプリカ 愛すべき業 art of words

I miss my love for my soul tozashita kioku no kakera
samayoeru tamashii ga hishigarete yugamu
dare mo kotaezu tsumetai emi o ukabete
tsukuri dasu repurika aisu beki waza art of words

I miss my love for my soul, the locked fragments of my memory
My wandering soul, being crushed, twists
Nobody responding, wearing a cold smile
A replica that creates forth, a lovable work, art of words

ああ 心が孤独な旅路の果てに
辿り着く物語 抱き締めて

aa kokoro ga kodoku na tabiji no hate ni
tadori tsuku monogatari daki shimete

Ah, embracing the story of my heart struggling
on to the ends of a solitary journey,

I’ll give my heart to my belief 灯すは気高き焔
幾つもの幻が浮かび消えて逝く
誰も気づけない手掛かりを手繰り寄せて
描き出すセフィロト 罪深き性 seeds of life

I’ll give my heart to my belief tomosu wa kedakaki honoo
ikutsu mo no maboroshi ga ukabi kiete yuku
dare mo kidzukenai tegakari o taguri yosete
egaki dasu sefiroto tsumibukaki saga seeds of life

I’ll give my heart to my belief, I’ll light flames of nobility
Countless numbers of apparitions float up, disappear, and die
I reel in a clue that nobody is able to notice
The sephirot that draws forth, grave sin nature, seeds of life

An imitation life that is without a light
Nobody could save my pain, so I’ve given up
I am a lonely mage who is just in a maze
Nothing heals or cures my forever loneliness
