Requested by: Eiki Shiki

Sekibanki is tired with the world and contemplates giving up her humanity. I wonder if her ‘heart’ is actually her head…

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

怒りをめくれば悲しみが
怡楽をめくれば喜びが
次から次へとめくれてく
人という名の戯れ者

ikari wo mekureba kanashimi ga
iraku wo mekureba yorokobi ga
tsugi kara tsugi he to mekureteku
hito to iu na no zaremono

When you tear off rage, there’s sorrow.
When you tear off pleasure, there’s joy.
They’re turned inside out, one after another,
By the capricious ones bearing the name ‘humans.’

そばだてる壁の向こう気にして
目を凝らす ずぼらはないか?と
息詰まる雁字搦めの街で
魂抜け出し夜を翔る

sobadateru kabe no mukou ki ni shite
me wo korasu zubora wa nai ka? to
ikizumaru ganjigarame no machi de
tamashii nukedashi yoru wo kakeru

I worry about what’s beyond that towering wall,
And I gaze intently at it: “Isn’t that sloppy?” I think.
My soul slips out from this stifling, confined street,
Then races through the night…

馴れ合いなんかはいりません
蹴落としごっこ おままごとも
四の五の全部消せるのなら
人なんて捨てる

nareai nanka wa irimasen
keotoshi gokko omamagoto mo
shi no go no zenbu keseru no nara
hito nante suteru

I don’t need things like conspiracies,
Kicking each other down, or playing house.
If I can erase this and that, and everything else…
I’ll cast away my humanity.

すべて すべて すべて すべて
縁成
声を千切り心契り叫ぶ

subete subete subete subete
enjou
koe wo chigiri kokoro chigiri sakebu

Everything, everything, everything, everything
Is fate. (1)
I scream myself hoarse and yell out my heart’s pledge.

不甲斐のなさは他人のせい
それでもダメなら運のせい
世界の終わりはまだ来ない
誇りのない生き物

fugai no nasa wa tanin no sei
soredemo dame nara un no sei
sekai no owari wa mada konai
hokori no nai ikimono

We’re not worthless because of other people,
Though if we’re no good it’s because of fate.
The end of the world hasn’t come yet,
Prideless living things…

闇の中 心解き放たれて
飛び回る幼子みたいに
軽薄な汚い音もなくて
月と私と夜を踊る

yami no naka kokoro tokihanatarete
tobimawaru osanago mitai ni
keihaku na kitanai oto mo nakute
tsuki to watashi to yoru wo odoru

My heart is released inside the darkness,
And it flies about like an infant.
Without any frivolous, filthy noises,
It dances with the moon and I through the night…

人間なんて儚きもの
猛々しっこ 見せ合いっこ
身の丈合った生き様など
みんな忘れてる
すべて すべて すべて すべて
煩悩
今を捨てて心捨ててふける

ningen nante hakanaki mono
takedakeshikko miseaikko
mi no take atta ikizama nado
minna wasureteru
subete subete subete subete
bonnou
ima wo sutete kokoro sutete fukeru

Things such as humans are transient beings.
They’re ferocious, they expose themselves…
Everyone’s forgotten their way of life—
Living within one’s means.
Everything, everything, everything, everything
Is passion. (2)
I cast away ‘now,’ I cast away my heart, and I give myself up…

馴れ合いなんかはいりません
蹴落としごっこ おままごとも
四の五の全部消せるのなら
人なんて捨てる

nareai nanka wa irimasen
keotoshi gokko omamagoto mo
shi no go no zenbu keseru no nara
hito nante suteru

I don’t need things like conspiracies,
Kicking each other down, or playing house.
If I can erase this and that, and everything else…
I’ll cast away my humanity.

人間なんて儚きもの
人間なんて儚きもの
人間なんて儚きもの
人を捨て思う

ningen nante hakanaki mono
ningen nante hakanaki mono
ningen nante hakanaki mono
hito wo suteomou

Things such as humans are transient beings.
Things such as humans are transient beings.
Things such as humans are transient beings.
I think I’ll cast away my humanity…

すべて すべて すべて すべて
縁成
声を千切り心契り叫ぶ

subete subete subete subete
enjou
koe wo chigiri kokoro chigiri sakebu

Everything, everything, everything, everything
Is fate.
I scream myself hoarse and yell out my heart’s pledge.

(1) 縁成 (‘enjou’) is a Buddhist concept, which implies that everything is formed from destiny and connections.
(2) 煩悩 (‘bonnou’) is the Japanese translation of the word ‘klesha,’ which refers to the evil thoughts that torment one’s mind and lead to suffering.
