Legend of Lunatic Kingdom hype time! Anyway, this is the debut album of a new circle, led by Rute (from A-One). It’s going to have arrangements of all 7 themes from the demo, + an arrangement of Reisen’s theme for good measure. See the PV here.

I wasn’t able to properly transcribe the spoken section at 2:00… Perhaps I might update it when I get a chance to properly listen to the album.

どうでもいいと思ってた 便りない優しさも
静かに旅立つ朝
耳に残ったアザ

dou demo ii to omotteta tayorinai yasashisa mo
shizuka ni tabidatsu asa
mimi ni nokotta aza

Kindness that can’t be relied on doesn’t matter, I thought.
In silence, I began my journey that morning,
With the ‘other’ left in my ears.

声にならないgratitude 思うだけの繰り返し
喉を詰まらせる度に
月が陰っていく

koe ni naranai gratitude omou dake no kurikaeshi
nodo wo tsumaraseru tabi ni
tsuki ga kagetteiku

My unspoken gratitude: it’s a cycle of just thinking.
Each time it makes my throat block up,
The moon darkens.

忘れられしカルマ
何処にいても同じ Q.E.D.

wasurerareshi karuma
doko ni itemo onaji Q.E.D.

Forgotten karma.
No matter where I am, it’s the same. Q.E.D. (1)

忘れられしカルマ
さよならじゃない

wasurerareshi karuma
sayonara ja nai

Forgotten karma.
This isn’t goodbye!

興味はないと逸らしてた よすがとする緑に
誰も疑いたくない
終わりが見えたって

kyoumi wa nai to sorashiteta yosuga to suru midori ni
dare mo utagaitakunai
owari ga mieta tte

“I’m not interested.” I avoided you, within the nostalgic greenery. (2)
I don’t want to doubt anyone.
The end was in sight…

どうにかなると思ってた 君の無償の愛が
空に消えていく度に
月を奪っていく

dou ni ka naru to omotteta kimi no mushou no ai ga
sora ni kieteiku tabi ni
tsuki wo ubatteiku

“It’ll work out somehow” I thought. As for your free-of-charge love:
Each time it disappears into the sky,
I snatch the moon away.

忘れられしカルマ
甘え過ぎた罪の楔は

wasurerareshi karuma
amaesugita tsumi no kusabi wa

Forgotten karma.
A wedge formed from the crime of relying on you too much…

忘れられしカルマ
償いじゃない
It’s the call of dear my green
因果無く先はない

wasurerareshi karuma
tsugunai ja nai
It’s the call of dear my green
inga naku saki wa nai

Forgotten karma.
This isn’t repentance:
It’s the call of my dear greenery.
There is nothing beyond the absence of karma.

MAYDAY! MAYDAY (MAYDAY! MAYDAY!)
MAYDAY! MAYDAY (MAYDAY! MAYDAY!)
MAYDAY! MAYDAY (MAYDAY! MAYDAY!)
MAYDAY! MAYDAY (MAYDAY! MAYDAY!)

忘れられしカルマ
何処にいても同じ Q.E.D.

wasurerareshi karuma
doko ni itemo onaji Q.E.D.

Forgotten karma.
No matter where I am, it’s the same. Q.E.D.

忘れられしカルマ
さよならじゃない
It’s the call of dear my green
輪廻などまだ序章

wasurerareshi karuma
sayonara ja nai
It’s the call of dear my green
rinne nado mada joshou

Forgotten karma.
This isn’t goodbye:
It’s the call of my dear greenery.
The cycle of life and death is still at its prologue…

(1) Q.E.D. is a term often placed at the end of a mathematical proof/philosophical argument to show that it has been concluded.
(2) This is an obvious reference to the title of the original theme, though it replaces の (‘no’) with とする (‘to suru’). The translation reflects the intention of this phrase, though it is not accurate grammatically.
