I love ‘The Lake Reflects the Cleansed Moonlight,’ so I’m glad it got a good arrangement so early on. I kind of feel like it won’t be that popular later on down the track, but hopefully I’m proved wrong.

I think the speaker is Ringo, talking down to Reisen, but it might not be. Also, the ‘地’ in the title refers to ‘Earth,’ as in ‘ground,’ but I feel like it’s also tied to 地球, or ‘Planet Earth.’ That’s why I capitalised it when it appears in the song.

月に祈り地に帰る いつか星は誰かに流れ

tsuki ni inori chi ni kaeru itsuka hoshi wa dareka ni nagare

Pray to the moon, and return to the Earth. Someday, that star will flow through someone.

じっと 空へ願う
「あぁそっちへ行きたいな。いっそ全てを捨て」
そう言って業に従う

jitto sora he negau
“aa socchi he ikitai na. isso subete wo sute”
sou itte gou ni shitagau

I look intently at the sky and pray:
“Aah, I want to go there. I want to throw everything away.”
Saying that, I give in to karma…

Pride 繕う姿を当たり前と
Prime 心も願いも圧し殺して

Pride tsukurou sugata wo atarimae to
Prime kokoro mo negai mo oshikorosu

Pride! Thinking a patched-up appearance is normal,
Prime! I crush my heart to death, and my dreams as well.

月に祈り地に帰る きっと君は夢見る少女 檻の出口なら
ココだよ 何度も呼ぶ声は まだ信じられない夢のようで

tsuki ni inori chi ni kaeru kitto kimi wa yume miru shoujo ori no deguchi nara
koko da yo nando mo yobu koe wa mada shinjirarenai yume no you de

Pray to the moon, and return to the Earth. You’re definitely a girl who dreams. The way out of your cage
Is here. No matter how many times they call, you won’t believe them, like in a dream…

一生 捧ぐ様な犠牲を受け入れる様な
混乱してる様な笑顔に教えてあげよう

isshou sasagu you na gisei wo ukeireru you na
konran shiteru you na egao ni oshiete ageyou

You seem confused as you smile. You, who have offered
Your whole life up, as if in sacrifice. I shall teach you…

Crime 見て見ないフリした君の本心
Slide 満たされ消え逝く箒星

Crime mite minai furi shita kimi no honshin
Slide mitasare kieyuku houkiboshi

Crime! Your conscience, which you saw but pretended you couldn’t see…
Slides, like a comet that vanishes after being satisfied.

時は君の願いさえ 嘲笑い払い退けてく遠い浮世だと
遥か彼方で煌めく儚さを掴もうか さぁこっちへ

toki wa kimi no negai sae azawarai harainokeru shirizoketeku tooi ukiyo da to
haruka kanata de kirameku hakanasa wo tsukamou ka saa kocchi he

If this distant, sad world is a place where time scorns and drives away even your dreams,
Then why not seize that glistening transience in the distance? Come, now – come here!

Crime 見て見ないフリした君の本心
Prime 未来も願いも圧し殺して

Crime mite minai furi shita kimi no honshin
Prime mirai mo negai mo oshikorosu

Crime! Your conscience, which you saw but pretended you couldn’t see…
Prime! It suffocates your future, and your dreams as well.

月に祈り地に帰る きっと君は夢見る少女 檻の出口なら
ココだよ 何度も呼ぶ声は まだ信じられない夢のようで

tsuki ni inori chi ni kaeru kitto komi wa yume miru shoujo ori no deguchi nara
koko da yo nando mo yobu koe wa mada shinjirarenai yume no you de

Pray to the moon, and return to the Earth. You’re definitely a girl who dreams. The way out of your cage
Is here. No matter how many times they call, you won’t believe them, like in a dream…
