うつろな目の猫 迷いながら路地裏へ
図書館の庭では 異世界への扉が開く

utsuro na me no neko mayoi nagara roujiura e
toshokan no niwa de wa isekai e no tobira ga hiraku

The cat, with empty eyes, heads for the alleys as it wanders about.
A door to another world opens in the library’s courtyard…

手にした幸せは
空中ブランコの上で
掴み取れないもの
思い描いていた理想の日々

te ni shita shiawase wa
kuchuu buranko no ue de
tsukamitorenai mono
omoiegaite ita risou no hibi

The happiness I obtained
Is something that cannot be grasped
Atop a trapeze.
I imagined it during those ideal days.

積み重ねた歴史の分だけ描く
通り過ぎてゆく時間の中だけ走る

tsumikasaneta rekishi no bun dake egaku
toorisugite yuku jikan no naka dake hashiru

I will only paint what happened in the past.
I race only through time, as it passes by.

うつろな目の猫 駆け抜けてゆく夜の街
映画館の裏では ファンタジックな空想が回転する

utsuro na me no neko kakenukete yuku yoru no machi
eigakan no ura de wa fantajikku na kuusou ga kaiten suru

The cat, with empty eyes, runs through the streets at night.
A fantastic vision turns around behind the cinema…

手にした幸せは
空中ブランコの上で
伝えきれないもの
思い描いていた眠りの中

te ni shita shiawase wa
kuuchuu buranko no ue de
tsutae kirenai mono
omoiegaite ita nemuri no naka

The happiness I obtained
Is something that I cannot fully explain
Atop a trapeze.
I imagined it whilst I was asleep.

積み重ねた歴史の中の分だけ描く
通り過ぎてゆく時間の中だけ走る
放り込まれた喧騒の中では泣いて
目も耳もこの両手で全部を塞ぐ

tsumikasaneta rekishi no bun dake egaku
toorisugite yuku jikan no naka dake hashiru
hourikomareta kensou no naka de wa naite
me mo mimi mo kono ryoute de zenbu wo fusagu

I will only paint what happened in the past.
I race only through time, as it passes by.
I cry amid the hustle and bustle I was thrown into.
With both hands, I cover my eyes and ears and block everything out.

塗りつぶされた水彩の絵画には
眠らない夜に見る夢を描いた

nuritsubusareta suisai no kaiga ni wa
nemuranai yoru ni miru yume wo egaita

The watercolour painting was painted over.
In it, I had painted the dream I had during a sleepless night.

    Thanks for translating this, I freaking love this song. it was minimum electric design that introduced me to mineko actually, as a fan of mineko yourself are you aware of the album she sang for MISTY RAIN? In case you don’t, it’s called “Drizzle Incident” and it’s a great dose of mineko (assuming you like MISTY RAIN’s style).

      You’re welcome! I didn’t realise she sang for MISTY RAIN :O I need to check that album out. I must admit, I’m only really familiar with mineko’s Aftergrow/MN-logic tracks, so I’m glad to see she sings for so many different circles

        It was just that one album for MISTY RAIN but she sang all 4 tracks (Track 3 is especially killer imo), she was also (she might still be?) a member of “Sun Flower Field” and sang everything on their first 2 albums. That was back in 2009 mind you and the recording quality on those albums is pretty tough to get past (at least for me). She also sang a song each for the first 3 <echo>PROJECT albums, but since you know Aftergrow I’m going to assume you know about those albums. She’s sang on some other things here and there but currently she seems to only be active when it comes to minimum electric design and Aftergrow.
