Lyrics

Japanese Romaji English
喚声は 終わらない 薬剤の記者会見で kansei wa owaranai yakuzai no kisha kaiken de The shouting doesn’t stop at the medical press conference.
ベレッタ 泣き出し 陬遠(すうえん) beretta nakidashi suuen ni The Beretta bursts into noise somewhere far away from the city.
権勢は 続かない 政令の強制労働 kensei wa tsuzukanai seirei no kyousei roudou Their influence won’t continue. This is slave labour by government order.
右に 2049 落下せよ migi ni ni zero yon kyuu rakkase yo To the right, 2049 fall.

再勘定 浮世と sai kanjou ukiyo to I sing a false song
ブリキの玩具(おもちゃ)に 偽者の歌 buriki no omocha ni nisemono no uta to the recalculated floating world and the tin toy.
(かね)(たた) kane o tatake Strike the gong!
冷戦時 時計は 投げ捨てて reisenji tokei wa nagesutete It’s the Cold War. Throw away your clocks
パレードを pareedo o and join the parade.

罪を棄て楽園を目指せ tsumi o sute rakuen o mezase Cast away your crime and aim for paradise
(投げ捨てろ 投げ捨てろ) (nagesutero nagesutero) (Throw it away, throw it away!)
機械仕掛け牢獄に kikaijikake rougoku ni inside this mechanical prison.
(捕まえろ 捕まえろ) (tsukamaero tsukamaero) (Seize them, seize them!)
嘘吐きの航路その先に usotsuki no kouro sono saki ni At the end of the liars’ route
たゆとう逃げた夢 tayutou nigeta yume was a wavering dream in which I escaped.
錆びる星 曇り空 sabiru hoshi kumorizora The planet is rusty and the weather cloudy.
(いた)む廃墟 月落ちる itamu haikyo tsuki ochiru At the grieving ruins, the moon sinks.
此処は何も無い koko wa nani mo nai There’s nothing here.

歓声は 上がらない 天秤の演奏会で kansei wa agaranai tenbin no ensoukai de The crowd doesn’t cheer at the concert of scales.
イーグル 棋峙(きじ)する 戦線に iiguru kiji suru sensen ni Eagle. The heroes face each other on the front.
勇健も 恙無(つつがな)い 不意打ちと泡銭(あぶくぜに) yugen mo tsutsuganai fuiuchi to abukuzeni With health and safety, facing surprise attacks and easy money,
左に 2049 点火せよ hidari ni ni zero yon kyuu tenkase yo set fire to 2049 at the left!

再編成 裏口 sai hensei uraguchi Reshuffle. Back door.
一人残されて 踊る骨 hitori nokosarete odoru hone Someone is left behind and the bones dance.
欺く 指揮は執れない azamuku shiki wa torenai Deceived, I can’t take command
ゆりかごの外 yuri kago no soto outside the cradle
夕闇のなか yuuyami no naka in the twilight.

戦艦朽ちて幽霊と壇上 senkan kuchite yuurei to danjou The battleship rots with spirits atop an altar.
(あつら)えた言葉は遊具の灯に降ろす atsuraeta kotoba wa yuugu no hi ni orosu The words of order fall upon the flames of playthings.
茉莉花(まつりか) 蜉蝣(かげろう) 石楠花(しゃくなげ)と飾り matsuri ka kagerou shakunage to kazari Jasmine, mayflies, rhododendron and decorations.
今日は最後に「     」 konnichi wa saigo ni "     " Today, finally, “     .”

罰を棄て空を彷徨う batsu o sute sora o samayou I abandon my punishment and roam about the sky
(逃がさない 逃がさない) (nigasanai nigasanai) (I won’t let you go, I won’t let you go.)
機械仕掛け永遠に kikaijikake eien ni during a mechanical eternity.
(終わらない 終わらない) (owaranai owaranai) (It won’t end, it won’t end.)
亡骸の望む その先に nakigara no nozomu sono saki ni Beyond what the corpse sees
たゆとう 過去の船 tayutou kako no fune the boat of the past drifts.
淀む風 軋む音 yodomu kaze kishimu oto The wind is stagnant, and a creaking sound echoes.
合わせ鏡 ()がれる歌は awasekyou nagareru uta wa A song flowing through the calm of opposite mirrors
何処へ消えゆく doko e kie yuku vanishes somewhere.
