I don’t know if this song was ever released in album form. It seems like it was uploaded online as part of some sort of NicoNico festival? It seems like nmk just arranges things and uploads them online without compiling them into albums.

The Japanese part of the title is a classic example of a 4-kanji word that can’t really be translated properly into English. Thankfully they gave us an English title to go by…

昏い箱庭の中で
何も変わらない毎日
繰り返す日常が
いつも通りただ過ぎて行く

kurai hakoniwa no naka de
nani mo kawaranai mainichi
kurikaesu nichijou ga
itsumodoori tada suigte yuku

In this dark, miniature garden,
Nothing changes.
I do the same things every day.
Like usual, the days just pass me by…

あたたかな笑顔と声
どこに不満があるの?と
問いかけて来る声に
抗い 沸き起こる 感情

atataka na egao to koe
doko ni fuman ga aru no? to
toikakete kuru koe ni
aragai wakiokoru kanjou

I see your warm smile and hear your warm voice:
“Are you dissatisfied?”
I go against your questioning
And my emotions well up.

黄昏に染まる血
永遠に続いて行く闇
狂気に色付く月の光を
ただ眺めていた…

tasogare ni somaru chi
eien ni tsudzuite iku yami
kyouki ni irodzuku tsuki no hikari wo
tada nagamete ita…

The blood around me is dyed the colour of dusk,
And the darkness continues forever.
I just looked at the light
Of the moon, now madly coloured.

迫る足音
照らす紅い月
高鳴る胸を抑えながら

semaru ashioto
terasu akai tsuki
takanaru mune wo osae nagara

Footsteps approach
And the scarlet moon shines down
While I control my racing heart.

待ち望んでた
夜が更け行く
こんなにも月が
紅い夜だから…

machinozondeta
yoru ga fuke yuku
konna ni mo tsuki ga
akai yoru dakara…

I waited eagerly
And the night began to wear on.
The moon is so scarlet tonight,
So now…

さあはじめましょう
こんなにも月が
紅い夜だから…(x2)

saa hajimemashou
konna ni mo tsuki ga
akai yoru dakara… (x2)

Shall we begin?
Because the moon
Is so scarlet tonight… (x2)

    It’s very strange that the vocalist was credited with that strange font. Normally it’s simply ℃iel, she actually started using the name 青砥 雫 recently (https://twitter.com/ciecieciel) which I know because she sings on just about every MISTY RAIN album.

      I thought the font was strange, too >_< It’s like they were using the English settings on IME or something.I didn't realise she was using a different name now, so thanks for the heads up! 😀
