いつか この暗闇のどこかに
探してた答え見つけたなら
沸き起こる無限のパワー どんな未来も掴めるだろう

itsuka kono kurayami no dokoka ni
sagashiteta kotae mitsuketa nara
waki okoru mugen no pawaa donna mirai mo tsukameru darou

If I find the answer I’ve been searching for
Hidden in this darkness someday,
Then perhaps I’ll be able to seize any kind of future with its overflowing, infinite power.

突き抜けてく オレンジ色の熱風 Fire blow
物足りなく 燻る虚無感も吹き飛ばせ

tsukinuketeku orenji iro no neppuu Fire blow
monotarinaku kusuburu kyomukan mo fukitobase

A hot orange wind pierces through. Fire blow.
It isn’t enough. Blow away my smouldering sense of emptiness!

太陽系より <もっともっと遠く>
憧れのツアー <ハイテンションさ>
リアルエイリアン 未知との遭遇 あったりするかもね

taiyoukei yori (motto motto tooku)
akogare no tsuaa (haitenshon sa)
riaru eirian michi to no souguu attari suru kamo ne

From the solar system, (we head further and further away.)
We longed for this tour. (It’s so exciting!)
Perhaps we’ll encounter real aliens or the unknown…

So Dreamin’
数えきれない Twinkle all the way 煌めいた星屑のファンタジー
遠いようで近い場所 あっと言う間 果てへひとっ飛び
それは このココロともシンクして 願えば願うほどに輝く
想像以上 秘めたエナジー 強く感じながら 明日へ向かう
限りない夢を乗せて

So Dreamin’
kazoe kirenai Twinkle all the way kirameita hoshikuzu no fantajii
tooi you de chikai basho a tto iu ma hate e hitottobi
sore wa kono kokoro to mo shinku shite negaeba negau hodo ni kagayaku
souzou ijou himeta enajii tsuyoku kanji nagara asu e mukau
kagiri nai yume wo nosete

So dreamin’
Uncountable twinkles, all the way. I view a fantasy of glistening stardust.
In a blink, I flew to the end. It seemed distant, yet it was close by.
The stardust synchronises with my heart. The more I wish, the more it sparkles.
I feel an unimaginable, hidden energy. While strongly feeling it, I head to tomorrow
Carrying a limitless dream.

浮かんでいる ラグランジュ点の宇宙 Station
初めて見た景色に 感動が溢れるよ

ukande iru raguranju ten no uchuu Station
hajimete mita keshiki ni kandou ga afureru yo

The space station floats at a Lagrangian Point.
I saw this landscape for the first time and I was deeply moved.

ビックバンって何 <もっともっと知りたい>
無茶ぶりなツアー <ブラックアウトさ>
まさかのハプニング 微塵も恐くない って言ったら嘘になる

bikku ban tte nani (motto motto shiritai)
mucha buri na tsuaa (burakku auto sa)
masaka no hapuningu mijin mo kowakunai tte ittara uso ni naru

What’s the Big Bang? (I want to know even more…)
This is such an unreasonable tour. (A blackout.)
What an unexpected incident! If I said “I’m not scared a bit,” I’d be lying…

I Believin’
きっと間に合うよ Future of Earth 謎めいた惑星のデスティニー
広いようで狭い天体 いざとなれば すぐにひとっ飛び
いつか あのセカイともリンクして 探してた人と出逢えたなら
沸き起こる 無限のパワー どんな悩みだって 砕くような
力を掴めるのかな

I Believin’
kitto ma ni au yo Future of Earth nazomeita wakusei no desutinii
hiroi you de semai hoshi iza to nareba sugu ni hitottobi
itsuka ano sekai to mo rinku shite sagashiteta hito to deaeta nara
waki okoru mugen no pawaa donna nayami datte kudaku you na
chikara wo tsukameru no kana

I’m believin’
I’ll make it in time to see the future of Earth – this enigmatic planet’s destiny.
The planet seems wide, yet narrow. When the moment arrives, I’ll fly off.
Someday, I’ll link with that word, and if I meet the person I was searching for,
Infinite power will overflow. It will be as if I can break down any distress.
Can I lay my hands on that power?

時のタイムカプセル みんなの理想 詰め込んで
将来 いくつ叶ったか 数えよう

toki no taimu kapuseru minna no risou tsumekonde
shourai ikutsu kanatta ka kazoeyou

Everyone’s hopes were crammed into this time capsule.
How many will be granted in the future? Let’s count them…

I think the title is probably romanised as ‘kougin no chikai,’ but I’m not certain, so I didn’t insert it at the top.

It seems like the perspective changes between Remilia and Sakuya throughout the track.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

紅の月が語りかける夜 思いに耽れば高ぶる鼓動
瞳に宿すは誓い合った過去 蘇る記憶 運命の出逢いの刻が

kurenai no tsuki ga katari kakeru yoru omoi ni fukereba takaburu kodou
hitomi ni yadosu wa chikai atta kako yomigaeru kioku unmei no deai no toki ga

The scarlet moon spoke in the night. Lost in my memories, my heartbeat sped up.
Our past vow rested in my eyes. My memories came back to life, including our fateful meeting.

ただ私のことを突き動かしてゆく
(嗚呼いつの日かその時が)
遠く近い終幕のその始まりへ
(訪れるとしても)
まだ見えぬ影など今は振り払ってこのまま
(嗚呼構わないあなたと二人で)
駆け抜ける 此の幻想郷を

tada watashi no koto wo tsuki ugokashite yuku
(aa itsu no hi ka sono toki ga)
tooku chikai shuumaku no sono hajimari e
(otozureru to shitemo)
mada mienu kage nado ima wa furiharatte kono mama
(aa kamawanai anata to futari de)
kakenukeru kono sekai wo

It begins to stimulate me.
(Ah… When will that time come?)
The end is distant, yet close. I head toward its beginning.
(Even if it arrives…)
I shake off shadows, which I haven’t seen yet, just like this.
(Ah… I don’t care as long as I’m together with you.)
I run through this world, Gensokyo.

あの日の誓いこの翼に込めて どこまででも羽ばたける
滴る紅き血は滾る未来を描く あなたとそう何処までも

ano hi no chikai kono tsubasa ni komete doko made demo habatakeru
shitataru akaki chi wa tagiru mirai wo egaku anata to sou doko made mo

I charge my wings with our vow. I can fly anywhere.
Scarlet blood drips down, sketching a seething future. I can go anywhere with you…

降りてくる銀色の月が 静かに私を照らして包む
心に刻むは誓い合った過去 輝くナイフの切っ先を見つめながら

orite kuru gin’iro no tsuki ga shizuka ni watashi wo terashite tsutsumu
kokoro ni kizamu wa chikai atta kako kagayaku naifu no kissaki wo mitsume nagara

The silver moon descends. It silently shines on me, covering me.
I remember my past, in which we made our vow, while staring at the point of my knife.

契り交わした運命に抱かれて
(心揺らす出逢いから)
伸ばされた手に瀟洒なる熱き想い
(幾つかの時を越え)
冷たくあしらう瞳の裏側にひそめたら
(生まれた感情を抱きしめて)
動き出す 此の幻想郷で 今

chigiri kawashita sadame ni idakarete
(kokoro yurasu deai kara)
nobasareta te ni shousha naru atsuki omoi
(ikutsuka no toki wo koe)
tsumetaku ashirau hitomi no uragawa ni hisometara
(umareta kanjou wo dakishimete)
ugokidasu kono sekai de ima

I am embrace by the fate we promised each other…
(From this meeting, which shook my heart…)
Elegant, passionate feelings rested in the hands stretched toward me.
(I pass through countless hours.)
If those feelings lay hidden beneath cold eyes…
(I hug these newborn feelings close.)
I will come alive in this world – Gensokyo.

あの日の誓いこのナイフに込めて 完全なる忠誠を
流れる時を止め愛しき日々を描く あなたとそう何処までも
想いは続く 果て無く響く いざ”その日”まで 命燃やして

ano hi no chikai kono naifu ni komete kanzen naru chuusei wo
nagareru toki wo tome itoshiki hibi wo egaku anata to sou doko made mo
omoi wa tsudzuku hate naku hibiku iza “sono hi” made inochi moyashite

I charge my knife with our vow—my perfect allegiance.
I stop the stream of time and sketch out those dear days. Yes, I can go anywhere with you.
My feelings will persist, resounding without end. My life will burn until that day…

真紅に染めた足跡辿り 掴んだ刻は新たな未来
更なる高みへひた走る 二人でずっと

shinku ni someta ashiato tadori tsukanda toki wa arata na mirai
sara naru takami e hitahashiru futari de zutto

I follow footprints, stained deep crimson. The time I seized became a new future.
At high speed, we’ll keep going together, even higher!

嗚呼あの日の誓いこの翼に込めて どこまででも羽ばたける
滴る紅き血は滾る未来を描く あなたとそう何処までも
あの日の誓いこのナイフに込めて 完全なる忠誠を
流れる時を止め愛しき日々を描く あなたとそう何処までも
想いは永久に繋がるように 今もう一度 誓いの鐘を
さあ手を伸ばせ 気高き月へ この幻想に ただ抱かれて

ano hi no chikai kono tsubasa ni komete doko made demo habatakeru
shitataru akaki chi wa tagiru mirai wo egaku anata to sou doko made mo
ano hi no chikai kono naifu ni komete kanzen naru chuusei wo
nagareru toki wo tome itoshiki hibi wo egaku anata to sou doko made mo
omoi wa towa ni tsunagaru you ni ima mou ichido chikai no kane wo
saa te wo nobase kedakaki tsuki e kono gensou ni tada idakarete

I charge my wings with our vow. I can fly anywhere.
Scarlet blood drips down, sketching a seething future. I can go anywhere with you…
I charge my knife with our vow—my perfect allegiance.
I stop the stream of time and sketch out those dear days. Yes, I can go anywhere with you.
I will ring the bell of our vow once more so my feelings will continue forever.
Now, I’ll reach toward the moon and simply be embraced by this illusion.

Requested by: avidlion

It seems like Seija is messing around with someone who’s also messing around with her…

These lyrics seem to be accurate, though I have a feeling that they’re not the official lyrics.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

can you いつもそうだった
can you 話だけど
can you 信じられずに
can you ついに捨てられ

can you itsumo sou datta
can you hanashi dakedo
can you shinjirarezu ni
can you tsui ni suterare

(Can you?) It was always the same.
(Can you?) I spoke,
(Can you?) But nobody believed me
(Can you?) And they threw my stories away.

わかったなんて嘘を言って
期待するなんて

wakatta nante uso wo itte
kitai suru nante

I tell lies, like “I know”
And end up holding hope…

ほめられると泣きたいの
そんなことを言わないで
どうせならば嫌がって
そんな筈じゃないの
嬉しがるの違うの
そんな顔を見せないで
どうせ上辺だけだって
そんなふうに思わせて
好きにさせて

homerareru to nakitai no

sonna hazu janai no
ureshigaru no chigau no
sonna kao wo misenaide
douse uwabe dake datte
sonna fuu ni omowasete
suki ni sasete

When you praise me, I want to cry
So don’t say those sorts of things to me!
You seem to hate me
But it’s not meant to be that way!
You seem happy. Am I wrong?
Don’t look at me like that.
I’m just superficial,
Or at least I’ll make you think I am.
Do what you want!

can you? これでいいのと
can you? 自分に聞いたけど
can you? だってこれこそ
can you? まさに喜び

can you kore de ii no to
can you jibun ni kiita kedo
can you datte korekoso
can you masa ni yorokobi

(Can you?) That’s fine.
(Can you?) At least, that’s what I told myself.
(Can you?) But still, this itself
(Can you?) Is surely happiness.

ちょっとたまに不安になる
分からなくなって

chotto tama ni fuan ni naru
wakaranakunatte

I sometimes get a bit uneasy
And then I don’t know anymore…

離されると泣きたいの
そんなことを言わないで
どうせムカムカするなんて
そんな筈じゃないの
笑われるの違うの
そんな顔を見せないで
どうせ一緒に抜けだって
そんなふうに思いたいの
好きにさせて

sonna hazu janai no
warawareru no chigau no
sonna kao wo misenaide
douse issho ni nukedatte
sonna fuu ni omoitai no
suki ni sasete

When we’re parted, I want to cry.
Don’t say such things to me!
Anyway, I feel sick
But it’s not meant to be this way!
Am I being laughed at? Am I wrong?
Don’t look at me like that
Anyway, I just want to think
That we can run away.
Do what you want!

少しだけど迷った
殻脱ぎ捨て変わると
でも変わらない汚い
こんな私だから.

sukoshi dakedo mayotta
kara nugisute kawaru to
demo kawaranai kitanai
konna watashi dakara

I’m just a little lost
Because, though I shed my skin and try to change,
I don’t. I’m still dirty.
That’s just who I am…

ほめられると泣きたいの
そんなことを言わないで
どうせならば嫌がって
そんな筈じゃないの
嬉しがるの違うの

嫌いなことばかりな
この世界で君と二人きり
分からなくなってしまうなぁ
これから僕らはもう どうすればいい?

kirai na koto bakari na
kono sekai de kimi to futari kiri
wakaranaku natte shimau naa
kore kara bokura wa mou dou sureba ii?

There’s nothing but things I hate in this world
And we’re all alone in it.
I don’t know anymore.
What should we do from now on?

嗚呼 何度目だろう
こんな気持ち
論理的根拠もなしに
ふと目で追ってしまう
窓際の席

aa nando-me darou
konna kimochi
ronriteki konkyo mo nashi ni
futo me de otte shimau
madogiwa no seki

Ah… how many times
Have I felt this feeling
Without a logical basis?
I follow along with my eyes
At the window-side seat.

柔らかく揺れてる
金色の風に触れて
驚いたようにパチクリした
言葉を探している

yawarakaku yureteru
kin’iro no kaze ni furete
odoroita you ni pachikuri shita
kotoba wo sagashiteru

It gently swayed,
Touched by the golden wind.
I blinked, as if I was surprised.
I searched for the right words…

嫌いなことばかりな
この世界で君と二人きり
分からなくなってしまうなぁ
これから僕らはもう どうすればいい?

kirai na koto bakari na
kono sekai de kimi to futari kiri
wakaranaku natte shimau naa
kore kara bokura wa mou dou sureba ii?

There’s nothing but things I hate in this world
And we’re all alone in it.
I don’t know anymore.
What should we do from now on?

あぁ何度目だろう
こんな風に放課後の時間を過ごす
彼女のお話は夢に溢れて

aa nando-me darou
konna fuu ni houkago no jikan wo sugosu
kanojo no ohanashi wa yume ni afurete

Ah… How many times
Have I spent my time this way after school?
Her stories overflowed into my dreams.

意気地無しな指先
後少し勇気を出せば
でも“また明日がある”と言い訳
いつも繰り返してる

ikuji nashi na yubisaki
ato sukoshi yuuki wo daseba
demo “mata ashita ga aru” to iiwake
itsumo kurikaeshiteru

I am cowardly, right to my fingertips.
If I had just shown a bit more courage…
But saying “there’s still tomorrow” as an excuse,
I kept doing the same things over and over again.

嫌いなことばかりな
この世界でいつか離れても
それでも君といたいな
これから僕はもう どうすればいいの

kirai na koto bakari na
kono sekai de itsuka hanaretemo
sore demo kimi to itai na
kore kara boku wa mou dou sureba ii no

There’s nothing but things I hate in this world
But even if we part someday in it,
I want to be with you.
What should I do from now on?

君の恋の魔法に
僕はかかってしまったんだ

kimi no ai no mahou ni
boku wa kakatte shimatta nda

I was caught up
In your love’s magic.

本当の気持ちだけは
君に気付かれないままで

hontou no kimochi dake wa
kimi ni kidzukarenai mama de

The only things you couldn’t notice
Were my true feelings.

嫌いなことばかりな
この世界で君と二人きり
分からなくなってしまうなぁ
それなら僕らはもう こうすればいい

kirai na koto bakari na
kono sekai de kimi to futari kiri
wakaranaku natte shimau naa

There’s nothing but things I hate in this world
And we’re all alone in it.
I don’t know anymore,
So what should we do from now on?

これからずっとよろしくね
これからずっと一緒だね
これからずっと二人だね
これならずっと二人だね

kore kara zutto yoroshiku ne

From now on, please look after me…
From now on, we’ll be together…
From now on, it’ll just be the two of us…
Like this, it’ll just be the two of us, forever…

何年生きても二人で
何年先でも二人で
朝を迎えて夜を超えて
夢の話をしよう

nannen ikitemo futari de
nannen saki demo futari de
asa wo mukaete yoru wo koete
yume no hanashi wo shiyou

No matter how long we live, we’ll be together.
No matter how many years pass, we’ll be together.
We’ll face the dawn and leave the night.
Let’s talk about dreams…

I originally translated the title as ‘Hide and Seek on the Moon,’ but I changed it to something vaguer. After all, the song doesn’t explicitly tell us who is playing hide and seek. It could be the moon fairies playing on/under the moon, it could be the moon rabbits, or it could even be the moon itself playing hide and seek with the stars. Listen to the song, read the lyrics, and see where they take you…

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

遥か彼方を鳥が飛び去るの
日の光浴び、風になるいのちよ

haruka kanata wo tori ga tobisaru no
hi no hikari abi, kaze ni naru inochi yo

The birds fly away into the distance.
O life, bathe in sunlight and become the wind!

遠い昔に
忘れ去られた記憶
君は幼い姿そのままで

tooi mukashi ni
wasure sarareta kioku
kimi wa osanai sugata sono mama de

I forgot my memories
Long, long ago.
You remain as you were when you were a child.

無邪気さは時には残酷
好奇心から生まれた
いつまでも来ない
「見つけた」の言葉が

mujakisa wa toki ni wa zankoku
koukishin kara umareta
itsu made mo konai
“mitsuketa” no kotoba ga

Innocence is sometimes cruel.
It is born from curiosity.
“I found you!” – those words
Will never come.

星が瞬く
月の隠れんぼ
早く見つけて、ここにいる
語りかけるは月のうさぎだけ
静寂の中たましい融ける空

hoshi ga matataku
tsuki no kakurenbo
hayaku mitsukete, koko ni iru
katari kakeru wa tsuki no usagi dake
seijaku no naka tamashii tokeru sora

The stars twinkle
During lunar hide and seek.
Hurry up and find me, I’m here!
The only ones speaking are the moon rabbits.
Spirits dissolve into the sky, in silence.

今もあのまま
時が止まっているみたいに
君の姿が影に重なった

ima mo ano mama
toki ga tomatte iru mitai ni
kimi no sugata ga kage ni kasanatta

Now, just like that,
It seems like time has stopped.
Your silhouette is overlapped by shadows.

音のしない風が今ここ
動き出した時と一緒
ガラスのように溶けない氷が
今、溶け出す

oto no shinai kaze ga ima koko
ugokidashita toki to issho
garasu no you ni tokenai koori ga
ima, tokedasu

The soundless wind becomes one with time—
Time, which began to move here, now.
Ice, which does not dissolve, like glass,
Now begins to thaw.

音を頼りに
月の隠れんぼ
早く見つけて、そこにいる
音を消したらあとは月明かり
白いゆりかご、ゆらり眠れ
さあ・・・

oto wo tayori ni
tsuki no kakurenbo
hayaku mitsukete, soko ni iru
oto wo keshitara ato wa tsukiakari
shiroi yurikago, yurari nemure
saa…

Relying on sounds,
We play lunar hide and seek.
Hurry up and find me, I’m over there!
When the sounds fade away, we’ll use the moonlight.
The white cradle sways and sleeps.
Now…

遥か彼方を鳥が飛び去るの
時の流れを報せるの

haruka kanata wo tori ga tobisaru no
toki no nagare wo shiraseru no

The birds flew away into the distance.
They proclaim the flow of time.

星が瞬く
月の隠れんぼ
早く見つけてここにいるよ
ha・・・

hoshi ga matataku
tsuki no kakurenbo
hayaku mitsukete koko ni iru yo
ha…

The stars twinkle
During lunar hide and seek.
Hurry up and find me, I’m here!
Ha…

広がる闇に溶けた地平線 誰かが僕を手招く黄昏時
滲む空の果てを映すのは 満たされない孤独な眼差し

hirogaru yami ni toketa chikeisen dareka ga boku wo temaneku tasogaredoki
nijimu sora no hate wo utsusu no wa mitasarenai kodoku na manazashi

The horizon was engulfed by the spreading darkness. Someone beckons to me in the dusk.
Unfulfilled, lonely eyes stare from the edge of the blurry sky.

待ち焦がれたのはこんな世界じゃなくて
叫びはこだまするけど
死に絶えた夢がいつか夜を包んで
光さえ飲み込み輝く

machikogareta no wa konna sekai ja nakute
sakebi wa kodama suru kedo
shi ni taeta yume ga itsuka yoru wo tsutsunde
hikari sae nomikomi kagayaku

This world isn’t the one I longed for!
Though my screams echo,
My extinct dreams will someday cover the evening.
They will swallow up the light and then shine.

遥か彼方呼びかける声 やがて消えて見失っても
影を切り裂いて 拓く運命のilluminant
鬼さんこちら手の鳴る方へ かごめかごめいついつ出やる
月明かりの下 星屑の欠片浴びて
明日を変えてく力、今ここで示すmidnight

haruka kanata yobikakeru koe yagate kiete miushinattemo
kage wo kirisaite hiraku unmei no illuminant
oni-san kochira te no naru hou e kagome kagome itsu itsu deyaru
tsukiakari no shita hoshikuzu no kakera abite
ashita wo kaeteku chikara, ima koko de shimesu midnight

Even if the voice calling to me from the distance eventually vanishes,
An illuminant will tear through the shadows and open up my destiny.
O, demon! Come toward my clapping! O bird, locked in your cage! When will you come out?
I bask in stardust beneath the moonlight.
I will show you my power, which will change the future! Midnight.

ぼやけた残像は胸に焼き付いて がんじがらめの役に立たない幻想
霞む色あせた遠い記憶は 痛みごと黒く塗りつぶす

boyaketa zanzou wa mune ni yakitsuite ganjigarame no yaku ni tatanai gensou
kasumu iroaseta tooi kioku wa itami goto kuroku nuritsubusu

Blurry afterimages are scorched into my chest. Useless illusions, in which I am immobile.
Hazy, dull, distant memories coat my pain with black.

憧れてるから求めてくんじゃなくて
自分で掴み取るもの
暴かれた嘘が壊しかけた未来でも
また初めから積み上げてく

akogareteru kara motometeku nja nakute
jibun de tsukamitoru mono
abakareta uso ga kowashi kaketa mirai demo
mata hajime kara tsumi ageteku

I’m not pursuing it because I long for it—
It’s something I’ll seize myself.
Even if the lies that have been exposed leave the future looking broken,
I’ll build it up again from the beginning.

言葉だけじゃ伝えきれない 全て捨てて分かち合えたら
羽は舞い落ちて つなぐ時代のsearchlight
見えない聞けない何も怖くない たとえ戻れない定めでも
ひとりじゃないから 闇が照らすから翔べる
願い叶えてく また二人ここで放つevening star

kotoba dake ja tsutae kirenai subete sutete wakachi aetara
hane wa mai ochite tsunagu jidai no searchlight
mienai kikenai nani mo kowakunai tatoe modorenai sadame demo
hitori ja nai kara yami ga terasu kara toberu
negai kanaeteku mata futari koko de hanatsu evening star

I can’t fully explain it with just words. When we throw everything away and share it with each other,
Feathers will dance down. They are an ancient searchlight, guiding me.
I can’t see. I can’t hear. Nothing scares me. Even if it is my fate to not return,
I’m not alone. After darkness illuminates my memories, I can fly.
We’ll make our wishes come true. Together, we’ll make the evening star shine here.

涙乾いても 朝が来なくても 狂った時計のせいにして
絶望が彩る 希望のサイクル
悪夢がまた始まる

namida kawaitemo asa ga konakutemo kurutta tokei no sei ni shite
zetsubou ga irodoru kibou no saikuru
akumu ga mata hajimaru

Even if my tears dry out, and even if tomorrow never comes, I’ll blame it on the awry clock.
Despair colours this cycle of hope.
The nightmare begins again.

迷いの道 彷徨いゆく
季節外れの闇の旅
眩しすぎる月あかり 刻のカケラ

mayoi no michi samayoi yuku
kisetsuhazure no yami no tabi
mabushisugiru tsukiakari toki no kakera

I’m roaming along a doubtful road,
Taking an out-of-season journey in the dark.
The moonlight is too bright. Fragments of time surround me.

痛む心 飲み込まれて
あなたの愛をつまみ食い
食べかけの夜 腐らせて捨ててしまえ

itamu kokoro nomikomarete
anata no ai wo tsumami kui
tabekake no yoru kusarasetete shimae

My aching heart is swallowed up.
I consume your love in secret.
I’ll let that half-eaten night rot, and I’ll throw it away!

あの日のように会えるのかな
指折り数え思い出す
淋しさだけで繋がれた大切な人

ano hi no you ni aeru no kana
yubiorikazoe omoidasu
sabishisa dake de tsunagareta taisetsu na hito

I wonder if we can meet again like on that day…
I count on my fingers and remember you—
You’re important to me, but only loneliness tied us together.

涙がこぼれ落ちてく
永遠なんてないの
気持ちを昇華するまでは
私を必要だって言って

namida ga kobore ochiteku
eien nante nai no
kimochi wo shouka suru made wa
watashi wo hitsuyou da tte itte

My tears fall.
There’s no such thing as eternity.
Until my feelings undergo sublimation,
Tell me that you need me!

歴史の中 残されない
私の願い壊れていく
流れ落ちる肉体は夢のカケラ

rekishi no naka nokosarenai
watashi no omoi kowarete iku
nagare ochiru nikutai wa yume no kakera

I won’t be left behind in history.
I begin to destroy my desires.
My body, flowing down, forms the fragments of dreams.

Requested by: Alv

That’s… actually a really clever album title! When you read it out loud, it sounds like ‘Modern Girl Sensation,’ but the words themselves have no meaning by themselves. The first part is a play on the circle’s name, and the second part is basically gibberish.

灰色の街 一人一人と落ちて
行方不明 忘れられていく
すれ違った あの子も夜を越せず
蹲り動けないままで

hai’iro no machi hitori hitori to ochite
yukue fumei wasurerarete iku
surechigatta ano ko mo yoru wo kosezu
uzukumari ugokenai mama de

They disappear, one by one, upon the ashen streets.
They are missing. They are forgotten.
That girl passed by them. She, too, does not pass through the night.
She crouches, unable to move.

空が割れて降ってくるような
そんな終末を目にして
幼気を孕んだままの
少女が目を覚ます

sora ga warete futte kuru you na
sonna shuumatsu wo me ni shite
itaige wo haranda mama no
shoujo ga me wo samasu

She saw the end. An end in which the sky broke
And rained down upon her.
Whilst filled with innocence,
The girl opened her eyes.

なけなしの言葉すら響かずに霧散しては
生きていく それだけで壊れるさ
簡単に

nakenashi no kotoba sura hibikazu ni musan shite wa
ikite iku sore dake de kowareru sa
kantan ni

Even those trifling words disperse without a sound.
I live. And through doing just that, I am broken.
It’s so easy.

夢を食む現実に殺された命でも
愛おしく手放すのも惜しいな
本当に

yume wo hamu genjitsu ni korosareta inochi demo
itooshiku tehanasu no mo oshii na
hontou ni

Even those that, indulging in dreams, were killed in reality
Are dear to me. I regret letting them go.
I really do.

一人一人落ちていく
何も言わず消えていく
一人一人落ちていく
何も言わず居なくなる

hitori hitori ochite iku
nani mo iwazu kiete iku
hitori hitori ochite iku
nani mo iwazu inaku naru

One by one, they fall.
They vanish without a word.
One by one, they fall.
They die without a word.

雨曝しの夜を超えて
闇の向こう 光の下
少女は今 大人になって
はにかんだ

amazarashi no yoru wo koete
yami no mukou hikari no shita
shoujo wa ima otona ni natte
hanikanda

She passed through the weather-beaten nights
And went beyond the darkness, beneath the light.
The girl has become an adult.
She’s shy.

“この手元に 命がある”
ただそれだけ ただそれだけで
生きていくには十分だって
知ったんだ

“kono temoto ni inochi ga aru”
tada sore dake tada sore dake de
ikite iku ni wa juubun datte
shitta nda

“There is life in these hands of mine.”
Just that, just that
Is enough for one to live.
I knew.

そうやって 削られていく
そうやって 殺されていく
そうやって 壊されていく
そうやって 生きてきたのさ

sou yatte kezurarete iku
sou yatte korosarete iku
sou yatte kowasarete iku
sou yatte ikite kita no sa

And thus, they are whittled away.
And thus, they are killed.
And thus, they crumble away.
And thus, they came to life.

Beautiful. Amazing. Wonderful. I could dump a whole dictionary’s worth of adjectives on this song and it still wouldn’t be enough to express just how amazing I think it is.

Just a reminder that the Asahi/emaru duo have formed their own circle called ‘macaroom.’ They’ve released two original albums so far – you need to check them out on Bandcamp!

深閑とした雨の日に
心身ともに冷えて
コーヒーの豆を
挽いて淹れて美味しいの
重ねた傘が逆さになって
中からカエルが水たまりに飛ぶの
水たまりに飛ぶの

shinshin to shita ame no hi ni
shinshin to mo ni hiete
koohii no mame wo
hiite irete oishii no
kasaneta kasa ga sakasa ni natte
naka kara kaeru ga mizu tamari ni tobu no
mizu tamari ni tobu no

During a silent rainy day
Both my mind and body grow cold.
I grind up the coffee beans
And brew them up. How delicious!
The piled-up umbrellas go upside-down,
And from inside, frogs soar into the puddles.
They soar into the puddles.

こそこそしてる こそこそしてる
子供を隠して雨の日に
電信柱にカラス
水たまりにタバコ
誰も乗せていない
王冠をつけてるタクシーは
黒く汚いゴミのようだ ゴミのようだ

koso koso shiteru koso koso shiteru
kodomo wo kakushite ame no hi ni
denshinbashira ni karasu
mizu tamari ni tabako
dare mo nosete inai
oukan wo tsuketeru takushii wa
kuroku kitanai gomi no you da gomi no you da

Sneakily, sneakily
Hiding its children during a rainy day,
A crow sits upon the telephone pole.
A cigarette lies in the puddle.
With nobody on board,
The taxi, bearing its crown,
Is just like black, dirty rubbish. Like rubbish.

見たもの覚えて 学ぶ 学ぶ 学ぶ
人と話す 体まるく座る
集中している運転は
ぶつかりそうならブレーキを
前方にはアライグマ
後方にはピザ屋

mita mono oboete manabu manabu manabu
hito to hanasu karada maruku suwaru
shuuchuu shite iru unten wa
butsukarisou nara bureeki wo
zenpou ni wa araiguma
kouhou ni wa pizaya

I memorise what I saw, and I learn. I learn. I learn.
I speak with people, and we sit in a circle.
Driving whilst concentrating
Involves braking when you’re about to crash.
A common raccoon is before me.
And behind is a pizzeria.

でも通りを進んで見えてきた
もうすこししたら体をあたためる
飲み物と 食べ物と 人がたくさん
淡々としすぎでしょう
全員簡単に見過ぎだから
もとのばしょに戻る もとに戻る

demo toori wo susunde miete kita
mou sukoshi shitara karada wo atatameru
nomimono to tabemono to hito ga takusan
tantan to shisugi deshou
zen’in kantan ni misugi dakara
moto no basho ni modoru moto ni modoru

But I walked down the road and it came into view.
If I walk a little longer, I’ll warm myself up.
There’s drinks and food and lots of people.
They’re all too bland, I suppose…
Everyone overlooks each other far too easily
So I’ll return to where I was before. I’ll return.

It… seems a bit counter-productive to translate the sequel before the original, but I guess it doesn’t matter. This song is a light-hearted look at what things would be like if Suika was a magical girl, solving everyone’s problems with alcohol instead of magic.

When unusual things happen
Anywhere in the world,
She’ll catch the scent of a feast
And show up.

She’s not that interested
In bad guys.
That little girl, with her drunken smile,
Draws closer…

Lyrical, magical talk! ☆ Grumbling over our cups.
I’ll chug at least a medium-sized beer in one gulp!

It’s okay to say the same things over and over, right?
