I say this all the time, but gee, listening to Ayo heals my soul. Even when the lyrics are heartbreaking, like they are here…

It’s tricky to interpret just where the parts in brackets fit in with the rest of the song. Sometimes, they seem to fit in with what comes beforehand, but other times they seem to fit with other bracketed parts that appear later on.


(My lonesome song echoed through the night sky…)

“How are you?” Surely, having cast away
Such words (Even now,)
The dinosaurs perished in ancient times
Before they knew it. Look!

I am alone in the summer rain.
The photons fade away.
The stars flow past, glittering in their final moments.
(Everyone’s vanished.) Each time I breathe… (1)
(Everything. Everything.)
My feelings definitely won’t disappear!

When the sky grows dark, (shining…)
The mirror ball will make shadows. (They reach out…)
To be honest, I know my cries won’t reach anyone
But, till I grow hoarse, (strongly…)
I’ll cry out “How are you?” today, too.

(The lonesome one’s song echoed through the night sky…)

The starlight that I’m looking at now is something from long ago (How mysterious)
So I wonder if that means someone, someday, will see me as I am now (In the distance…)

Swaying, swaying, swaying about (Life’s fickle flame)
At twilight, atop someone’s sacrifice,
Floating, floating, floating, going where the current takes it, (dully shines)
Illuminating the shadows.

When the sky grows dark, (shining…)
The mirror ball makes shadows. (They reach out…)
To be honest, I know my cries won’t reach anyone
But, till I grow hoarse, (strongly…)
I’ll cry out “Are you well?” today, too.

The light of life is born, then it fades.
(Who decided that?) If it’s destined to disappear,
Then where’s the happy end laid out in God’s scenario?
(My trite wishes) all fade into illusion.

I’m so lonely… Only my voice echoes (in vain.)
Alone, I shed tears (always.)
To be honest, I know it won’t reach you anymore
But I wish… (just a little)
In my empty dreams, I softly kissed you.

The mirror ball lights up everything (radiantly)
That means the shadows are enlivened, too (they grow deeper)
To be honest, I know they won’t reach you anymore
But forever and ever, (always, always…)
I’ll howl my feelings to you, in the distance.

(My lonesome song echoes through the night sky)
(So I can reach you, anytime, anywhere…)

It will be heard everywhere. Ah…

The lonesome wolf’s howling
Will resound, reaching into the distance.


(1) 息をする間もなく (‘iki wo suru ma mo naku’ – without time to breathe) is written at the end of this line in the booklet, but it is not sung.

This song seems to tell a tale of unrequited love, yet it also refers to ‘Snow White.’ Does the speaker have an actual relationship with her lover? Or is she merely looking on from afar?


I gaze at the choked-up cherry tree
And mark the passage of ‘time,’ even now.

I came across you in an alleyway.
When our eyes met, you smiled.
I didn’t think that day
Was worth paying any attention to.

My sighs were still frozen
So I spoke to my frozen hands. Ah…
My breaths will ripen
Until they smell of flowers.

An apple fell into your hand, which touched me by chance
And I awoke from my deep sleep, as if it passed from my cold hands.

An apple as red as fire, and my white skin.
Yes—An unconcealable pattern stains me, beginning at my cheeks.
I can’t cut the invisible red string of fate.
Ah, I fall so much in love I can’t put my feelings into words.

I dream, with my chin in my hands, without pause.
You know, I’m searching for you,
My other half inside me…
Ah, I want to believe it’s a lie.

I bought a hairpin on a whim.
Ah… Ah… Lies.
That’s all it is. That’s all it was
But I want my pure-hearted feelings to bloom. Cherry blossoms will storm down.

I wear my hair short, but if you wanted…
I’d grow it longer. Hah, it’s like I’m a teenage girl.
I’m a white armeria, blooming at the side of the road.
Ah… I want you to notice one of my small petals.

The moment our eyes met, the world stopped.
Just let me dream, even for a moment. Ah…
I’m a fragile cherry blossom. (1) 

The apple seems to burn brightly. It’s like a kaleidoscope.
I will bind up these feelings, which I can’t give up on.
I can’t cut the rain, the air, or time.
Ah… I hoped that you would throw away unripe fruit.

Perhaps the red string of fate I reached out will get tangled up someday
So I’ll sever my hidden feelings with the sword of fate.

(Honestly, I wished for it.)
My feelings will never reach you.
(The cherry tree will not bloom.)
Ah… winter ends.


(1) 徒桜 (adazakura), literally meaning ‘easily-scattered cherry blossom’ is also a metaphor used to describe a fickle woman.

This was actually released in an event-limited single (Rapid Princess), but I’m filing it under ‘Synchro’ for convenience.

The song itself is so relaxing, yet the lyrics are quite creepy in places. Mystia will sing until the one she loves listens to her and falls under her spell…


Ah… Blue, intensely…
My heartbeat is uncertain.
Everything will be stained
Including your eyes. You love. (1)

So it may fade away, so we can meet,
I want to be honest
And tell you what’s in my heart.
I shall sing alone.

My song will travel
(Into the distance)

With you…
The love pulsing through the night sparrow’s melody heart
And the feelings our melody conveys
Will spread out to the edge of the night sky.
They will tie me to you…

Resound! The love pulsing through my melody heart
And the sounds pulsing to the edge of familiar things
Will reach you. Yes, for certain.
I release them. Dive.

Now, I lock them up…

A mysterious song can be heard.
I can’t abandon you. I dress up.
I want to capture you, feelings and all…
When your vision grows dark, we’ll be all alone…
I won’t give up.
I’m waiting, right by your side.
(You love.) (1)
Ah. I’m waiting!
(Hold me.)

I’ll sing this song forever.

Listen—
The love pulsing through the night sparrow’s melody heart
And the feelings our melody conveys
Will spread out to the edge of the night sky.
They will link the future together…

Resound! The love pulsing through my melody heart
And the sounds pulsing to the edge of eternity
Will reach you. Yes, for certain.
I release them. Live.

Hey, I wonder if you can hear it—
My heart is calling.
I’ll be by your side forever (always…)
Hug me (tightly…)
A miraculous world bloomed in the night sky.

I love you, so I want to lock you up!
I’ll invite you into a permanent darkness.
Invisible feelings, linked to my love…
Closer! (Closer!)

I want to believe. I want to be shaken.
Tell me about yourself…
Now, something comes alive (in my heart)

The night sparrow’s melody heart—I’m going to deliver it to you (with love)
My true feelings will resound, reaching you.
(Fall in love with you)
It will reach all through the world, crossing over the night sky.
(Love.)
We’ll be tied together, following our hearts’ desires.
(In my heart)
The night sparrow’s melody heart won’t stop.
(With love)
I’ll keep singing.
More, longer, surely, secretly…
Someday, somewhere, far away in the night sky.
Ah, I’m a blind night bird.

Ah… Blue, intensely…
My heartbeat is uncertain.
Everything will be stained.
I’m together with you…


(1) The word ゆら (‘yura’) is sung alongside ‘you love’ on two occasions. ゆら seems to have no meaning by itself, though it is possibly a contracted form of ゆらゆら (‘yura yura’ – swaying/vibrating). Because of this, I omitted it in my translation, using ‘you love’ to refer to both.

This track has such a lonely feel to it. It’s almost as if Keine has lost someone important to her, and wants to try and get them back.


dare mo shiranu kokoro
moeru you ni michita hane ga
dare mo kesenu kioku
honoo ushinawanai you ni to

A heart unknown to all.
Feathers, so full they seem to burst into flames.
Nobody can erase these memories.
They hope they will not lose those flames.
They hope they will not lose them…

hitori samyou izayoi no sora

I wander alone beneath the post-full moon.
The moon shines silver.
My hidden feelings fill my heart with pain.
It’s so strong it could chase me to an abyss.

dare mo shiranu mirai

A future unknown to all.
The moon sings as if howling.
Feelings, unsaid by all,
So history will continue on
Continue on…

yagate somaru kurenai ni
keredo sadame wa itazura ni majiwaru

The eras drift through the dawning sky
And are eventually dyed crimson.
But fate intersects mischievously.
I cried in longing for you enough to do it all again.

dare mo shiranu kokoro
moeru you ni michita hane ga

Boiled by the wind that sways the two of us,
We pass through the same time.
Even if it isn’t the truth,
Light and darkness will intersect.

This song seems to be about Seiga trying to seduce/corrupt someone, making them obey nothing but their desires…

Wake. My urges suddenly awoke.
Through the line. Let’s not hold it back—let’s go! Overdose.

I gather up my lingering attachments for this world, and I writhe in the threshold between them and desire.
Before I die, I’ll send my consciousness flying. While unaware, you’ll all be in a trance.

So, putting the brakes on desire is ethical justice?
I’ve already overtaken such barriers.
Gathering in a daze. The master and their servant will decide. We make your rules!
I’ll grant you an indulgence. I’ll attach your critical point!
I’ll ignore your charity-seeking Q & A session, boy!
Rather than fearing high walls, hurry and take my hand, you simpleton!
Afterwards, I’ll award you with everything.
I’ll make you overdose, and while you’re in a trance… you’ll stop.

It’s time to open that firmly-sealed door.
The calls of your subconsciousness were violent, but they suddenly appeared.
Block them, like sealing them in chains. Broken. It’s like this is the prologue.
The subject crosses over barriers, dead or alive.
OVERDRIVE. I welcome you to a world that everyone’s seen, and hasn’t seen
After returning from hell, your behavioural principles are desires, sought from your heart. DESIREDRIVE.
Can you remove the boundary lines? Show me your strength, revolutionary!
After climbing that massive wall, an awakening you haven’t yet experienced awaits.

Don’t hide your desires as they flood out…
I’ll lay your piety bare. You don’t need to be scared.
Round and Round. This world’s ethics and absurdity cycle around.
Say God. Nyan Nyan! A god and a devil are inside you.
When you see how their fight ends, drown in a spring of sounds! (2)

Instincts ran wild from the extraordinary thing you stepped into.
Desire answers the screams of your heart.
Listen to its voice and obey, just like that!
If you can’t resist, you don’t have to.

Like other RD tracks, I’ve written more about my own personal interpretation in the comments. I feel like this song is darker than it appears to be on the surface, but maybe that’s just because I’m so used to RD’s multilayered songs…

The trickiest part of translating this song is piecing together the various usages of the volitional form. It’s normally used when inviting someone to do something, but it’s also used when you’re talking to yourself and telling yourself to do something. So much depends on context…


Now, tell me
All about yourself!
Tell me about everything that makes you ‘you’
During this journey.
Meetings
And partings, too…
Everyone’s a traveller!

I’ll sing to you.
I walk down this path,
Facing a solitary traveller.
Where did you come from? Where are you going?
I want to get closer to your journey…

The song of the travellers
Is almost identical
No matter which traveller sings it.
It’s because they’re all odd enough
To be walking here.

Have pride in yourself
And keep walking!
Tomorrow will draw closer with every step.
The world around you tomorrow
Will surely be shining.

That’s right!
If you have someone’s face in your mind,
It’s the face of someone you left behind long ago.
Until you see them once more,
Your journey will continue!

I wonder how far you’ve walked?
Even though you can’t see where this path ends,
Sing the song of travellers
So it may reach somewhere far away.

♪ 〜
I meet someone.
I walk with someone
I’ll continue along with someone
Until we part ways!
〜♪

You should sing, too!
While walking down this path,
You’ll find yourself alone
And then you can go anywhere,
Even to the end of this road.

The song of the travellers
Is almost identical
No matter which traveller sings it.
It’s because they’re all ungracious enough
To make it here.

I wonder if there’s lots of things
That you want to know about…
Where are you now, and where are you heading?
There’s only one important thing, though:
Never stop walking.

That’s right!
You just can’t give up
On staying alive.
…There’s no way you’ll reach your end here.
Your journey will continue!

How far have you walked?
Following the many memories in your heart,
Walk with the song of the travellers
So you both may reach somewhere far away…

Ah! Those ‘travellers’ are all the same.
They have somewhere to return to.
But still, I want you to tell me
Why you began your journey, please!

Now, join in the song!

How far do you think you’ve walked?
There must be somewhere you want to return to, right?
As long as you don’t stop walking,
You should be able to arrive there, no matter where it is!

I meet someone.
I walk with someone
I’ll continue along with someone
Until, somewhere in the distance… we part ways!

♪ 〜
You know nothing about yesterday.
You know nothing about tomorrow.
But still, keep going
Together with the song of travellers.
〜♪

Update [Sept. 7, 2017]: Minor adjustments made

I don’t really want to spoil too much up here, so I’ll place my own personal interpretation of this song in the comments. I’d love to hear your thoughts, too!


Now
What should I think?
I feel a clear sensation remaining in my arms.

I look at that thing, fragilely crumbling away.
Did I see something inside myself alongside it?

If only I could remain as a simple young girl…
But once those wings have emerged, they’re almost like a curse.

My body grows lighter.
It’s as if I’m forgetting
About something important…

…Surely, I am ignorant of all but this way of life
If so, I hope I will not grow to loathe ‘this.’

…I’ll never beg for forgiveness, so I’ll never forgive anyone. Ah…

I’ll just stay strong and dignified.

Now,
I wonder what you’re thinking,
Though your eyes say “why me?”

The person
Whom you look at
Asks the same question.

I never wished for or wanted for anything…
So does this mean something has been stolen from me? I don’t know that either, do I?

“Never beg for forgiveness”
“So never forgive anyone.”
“Just be strong, so strong”
“For as long as you bear this name.”

The self that I wish for is not me, for I am right here.
But is this all I am? Who am I…?

I’ll forget all about
Those answerless questions.
After all, nobody else has the answer.

…So, I’ll be ignorant of all but this way of life
So I will not grow to loathe ‘this.’

Somewhere deep inside my heart
I cast something aside once more.
My heart grows lighter as I cast everything away…

…And thus, I will fly through the sky without being tied down by anything else!
Even if, say, I forget about what my tears mean.

…I’ll just be strong, so strong, as long as I bear this name. Ah…

Yes, I’ll just stay strong and dignified

Poor Mystia. It looks like she’s doing her best to make her song reach someone special, but they can’t hear her…


akogare ni kogare kizutsuite mata hane wo hiroge

I burn with love. I’m wounded, and then I spread my wings again.
Even though the scenery does not change, I feel your warmth by my side.

omoidasu hodo ni atsuku moeru
ah nodo no oku afureru
omoidasu hodo ni fukaku sasaru

It burns so hotly I remember.
Ah, my throat brims over.
It pierces so deeply I remember.
Ah, these feelings
Are connected without pause. My heart keeps throbbing, forever.

kono koe todokete nobashita yubi ni tomare

My voice will reach you. Stop right here, at my outstretched finger.
Make my heart unsteady. Even if you’re surprised, don’t let go.
Sing, and look up toward the night sky!

karisome ni somare hanjuku na yokan ni oborete
tesaguri yami no naka sode ni nejikomu mikadzuki

Tainted for a moment, I drown in my half-baked premonitions.
I grope around in the dark. The crescent moon illuminates a corner of the room.

omoidasu hodo ni atsuku moeru

It burns so hotly I remember.
Ah, we come to an understanding in the light rain.
It pierces so deeply I remember.
Ah, these feelings
Will be held by the night breeze. They will sing and chirp from now on, too.

kono koe hibiite tooku no kimi no machi e
kodoku wo narabeta neiro made dakishimete yo

My voice will resound into the distance, heading toward your town.
I lined up my loneliness. Hug me, reaching even my voice.
Sing and dance, heading toward the night sky!

hito wa mina warau kudaranai uta da to
shizuku koboreru shion no tsuki tatoe kono koe kuchite ikoutomo

Everyone will smile, thinking my song is stupid.
I cry beneath the aster-coloured moon. Even if my voice will wither away…

kono koe todokete nobashita yubi ni tomare
kodou wo yurashite akiretemo hanasanaide
kono koe hibiite tooku no kimi no machi e
kodoku wo narabeta neiro made dakishimete yo
utae odore yozora e

My voice will reach you. Stop right here, at my outstretched finger.
Make my heart unsteady. Even if you’re surprised, don’t let go.
My voice will resound into the distance, heading toward your town.
I lined up my loneliness. Hug me, reaching even my voice.
Sing and dance, heading toward the night sky!

I can’t help but think that this song is about either Renko or Merry getting so engrossed in their research that they forget about the other…


泣き疲れ枯れた声
何を口にしても味気ない
潤った思い出に
いっそ溺死したい

naki tsukare kareta koe
nani wo kuchi ni shitemo ajikenai
uruotta omoide ni
isso dekishi shitai

I’m tired of crying, and I am hoarse.
No matter what I eat, it’s tasteless.
I’d rather drown to death
In my damp memories.

ある日見た絵本では
腹立しいほど簡単に
不可能を可能へと
導く少女たち

aru hi mita ehon dewa
haratatashii hodo kantan ni
fukanou wo kanou e to
michibiku shoujo-tachi

In a picture book I once read,
Those girls could make the impossible
Possible. They did it so easily,
So much so it was annoying.

諦めきれない今に
自らを疑った
定理を穿つ真似事
ただエゴのまま

akirame kirenai ima ni
mizukara wo utagatta
teiri wo ugatsu manegoto
tada ego no mama

I can’t give up, at least not completely
But now, I doubt myself:
I’m just a sham, wearing a theory.
I’m nothing but an ego.

摂理を壊し
人をやめる覚悟もせずに
神を騙す理論を築き上げた
手の繋げない今を
「馬鹿だよ」と泣いていた
笑いながら私もそう思った

setsuri wo kowashi
hito wo yameru kakugo mo sezu ni
kami wo damasu riron wo kizukiageta
te no tsunagenai ima wo
‘baka da yo’ to naiteita
warai nagara watashi mo sou omotta

I destroy divine providence.
Without the will to give up on my humanity,
I established a theory to fool the gods.
Now, we can’t hold hands.
“You’re such an idiot!” You wept.
While laughing, I thought the same thing.

弱さを強みへ
あらゆる矛盾を見つめ直し
人間の美徳より
高みへ上り詰めた

yowasa wo tsuyomi e
arayuru mujun wo mitsume naoshi
ningen no bitoku yori
takami e nobori tsumeta

Weakness becomes strength
And I re-examine every contradiction.
I was engrossed in something
Even higher than human virtues.

月を見上げることで
癒える感情の傷は
消え去って欲しくない
チグハグなこだわり

tsuki wo miageru koto de
ieru kanjou no kizu wa
kie satte hoshikunai
chiguhagu na kodawari

I don’t want my emotional scars
To fade away
By looking up at the moon.
It’s an odd fixation of mine.

朽ちない気持ち
それを記憶だけにさせない
今を永久に閉じ込める禁断へ

kuchinai kimochi
sore wo kioku dake ni sasenai
ima wo towa ni tojikomeru kindan e

My feelings do not decay.
I won’t let them become just memories.
I will lock these present moments away. They will become forbidden.

私はゆこう 二度と
君を泣かせはしない
例えそれが望まぬ瞬間でも

watashi wa yukou nido to
kimi wo nakase wa shinai
tatoe sore ga nozomanu shunkan demo

I’m going now. I’ll never
Make you cry again.
Even if, at that moment, it’s not what you want.

摂理を壊し
人をやめる覚悟もせずに
神を騙す理論を築き上げた
手の繋げない今を
「馬鹿だよ」と笑っていた
夢は続く 儚く永遠に

setsuri wo kowashi
hito wo yameru kakugo mo sezu ni
kami wo damasu riron wo kizukiageta
te no tsunagenai ima wo
‘baka da yo’ to waratte ita
yume wa tsudzuku hakanaku eien ni

I destroy divine providence.
Without the will to give up on my humanity,
I established a theory to fool the gods.
Now, we can’t hold hands.
“You’re such an idiot!” I was laughing.
The dream will continue emptily, for an eternity…

鳥居の向こうの夢蒔絵 || The Dream Maki-e Beyond the Torii

The Dream Maki-e Beyond the Torii

Original Theme: U.N. Owen was Her? [U.N.オーエンは彼女なのか?]

Requested by: Violet Mon

This song seems to be about loneliness/isolation. Perhaps Flandre is trapped alone inside, using the art of ‘maki-e’ to reflect on the happy times in her past…

Just a quick note:
鳥居 (torii) refers to the traditional gates often found at the entrance to Shinto shrines.
蒔絵 (maki-e) refers to a form of decorative lacquer (gold or silver in colour).


子守唄を聴く
このゼンマイを回すだけでいい
いつも同じ歌飽きずに歌っている

komori uta wo kiku
kono zenmai wo mawasu dake de ii
itsumo onaji uta akizu ni utatte iru

I listen to a lullaby.
All I have to do is wind this spring.
It always sings the same song, without getting tired.

いつまでいつまで廻っているの
掠れる音 歯車声と重ねて
いつまでいつまでドアを閉めるの?
誰かが外から手招く

itsu made itsu made mawatte iru no
kasureru oto haguruma koe to kasanete
itsu made itsu made doa wo shimeru no?
dareka ga soto kara temaneku

How long, how long will it go around?
A scraping sound from the gears is heard over my voice.
How long, how long will the door remain closed?
Somebody beckons from outside.

鳥居に呑まれたら木の葉が線を引く夢蒔絵
乾いた漆はいつかの瞳に見える
貴方が手を引いて記憶に落ちてない夢蒔絵
錆びれた傷にも華やぎの色が宿る

torii ni nomaretara konoha ga sen wo hiku yume makie
kawaita urushi wa itsuka no hitomi ni mieru
anata ga te wo hiite kioku ni ochitenai yume makie
sabireta kizu ni mo hanayagi no iro ga yadoru

The dream maki-e depicts the foliage, which draws a line when engulfed by the torii.
Its dried lacquer can be seen by someone, someday.
The dream maki-e depicts you. You pull my hand and will not fall into my memories.
Brilliant colours rest even in my rusty wounds.

子守唄を聴くこのゼンマイを回すだけでいい
長い年月で声が枯れ始める

komori uta wo kiku kono zenmai wo mawasu dake de ii
nagai toshi tsuki de koe ga kare hajimeru

I listen to a lullaby. All I have to do is wind this spring.
That voice begins to wither as the long years pass.

いつまでいつまで生きてられるの?
霞んだ音 歯車壊れかけてた
どうしてどうして幅が違うの?
与えられた時間の粒

itsu made itsu made ikiterareru no?
kasunda oto haguruma koware kaketeta
doushite doushite haba ga chigau no?
ataerareta jikan no tsubu

How long, how long can I live?
Blurred sounds. The gears were close to breaking.
Why, why is there a gap?
These are small grains of the time I was given.

季節に呑まれたら滅びに傾いた夢蒔絵
乾いた漆は長い記憶を眺める
貴方が見せたがる館に落ちてない夢蒔絵
儚げに佇む一瞬が美しい

kisetsu ni nomaretara horobi ni katamuita yume makie
kawaita urushi wa nagai kioku wo nagameru
anata ga misetagaru yakata ni ochitenai yume makie
hakanage ni tatazumu isshun ga utsukushii

The dream maki-e fell to ruin after being engulfed by the seasons.
Its dried lacquer gazes upon long memories.
The dream maki-e will not fall into the mansion you wanted to show me.
That fleeting moment, in which I stand still, is so beautiful.

鳥居に呑まれたら木の葉が線を引く夢蒔絵
乾いた漆はいつかの瞳に見える
貴方が手を引いて記憶に落ちてない夢蒔絵
錆びれた景色に子守唄を添えて描く

torii ni nomaretara konoha ga sen wo hiku yume makie
kawaita urushi wa itsuka no hitomi ni mieru
anata ga te wo hiite kioku ni ochitenai yume makie
sabireta keshiki ni komori uta wo soete egaku

The dream maki-e depicts the foliage, which draws a line when engulfed by the torii.
Its dried lacquer can be seen by someone, someday.
The dream maki-e depicts you. You pull my hand and will not fall into my memories.
I add a lullaby to the rusty landscape, and draw.
