I close my eyes
Here, it is blue The crested ibis sings In the depths of my heart (1)
Because I want to feel the future borne away in the storm (2)
The painting peels away and rots

I still can't wipe the tears from my memories
Nor the sound of this darkness
Surely, I will not soon heal
Somewhere, I know this

Tears still fall from my memories
I look around me
Surely, that is not a place (3)
for anyone to be in. For now I am...alone.

Even enduring wounds can be beautiful, can't they?
If my dreams were to wither and die, could I still love?
I know there is no gleaming future
That frail intention
is not a wound, willing you to look back

I still can't wipe the tears from my memories
Nor the sound of this darkness
Surely, I will not soon heal
Somewhere, I know this

The evening shatters before my very eyes
I've cast it all aside You are the moon
It's best if we cry and fall asleep

One cannot change their life through error
Let the noble, pure white lotus bloom
Etched into my back My intent will not waver
The free sky Let's close our eyes
What is believing?

This. Fucking. Song.

1: 朱鷺 (toki) = Japanese Crested Ibis. They are critically endangered and were thought to be extinct for decades, and they remain an important national symbol for Japan. They have also come to symbolise restoration, particularly that of the natural world.
2: In both instances that he uses the word for 'tomorrow' in this song, I've translated it as future. It just sounds far more natural in english.
3: The emphasis while reading this line should be on the "that". "That" place.

This song is so beautiful I just can't all my words are rendered worthless in light of it. God I fucking love it so much.


眼を閉じる
此所は蒼い 朱鷺が鳴く 心の底
嵐が連れ去った 明日を感じたいから
剥がれ朽ちる絵と

記憶からまだ涙を消せない
この闇の音も
きっとそれはもう癒えない
何処かで知りながら

記憶からまた涙を落とし
周りを見渡す
きっとそこにはもう誰の
為でもない今が…独り

消えない傷でも綺麗でしょ?
夢が枯れてもまだ愛せるの?
確かに煌めく明日じゃない
壊れそうなその意思は
振り返る為の傷じゃない

記憶からまだ涙を消せない
この闇の音も
きっとそれはもう癒えない
何処かで知りながら

壊れ行く 夜が 目の前で
何もかも捨てた お前は月
泣いて眠ればいい

過ちが生き方を変えはしない
気高く真っ白な 蓮を咲かせ
背に描いた 意思はもう揺るがない
自由な空 眼を閉じよう
