Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Yume to iu mousou ha
Yokubou no chigau namae
Nibiiro no sora no shita
Yokoshimana sozoro aruki

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The delusion called a dream
is but a different name for desire.
Beneath the dull gray sky
vice leisurely wanders about.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Chikara koso subete to
Itsu no hi ka shiru darou
Yowai mono ha iranai
Tada, hirefusu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
One day, I will learn enough
to gain that true power.
I have no use for weak souls^
they just cower in fear.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Jama mono ha kiesare mogakinagara
Kurai kurai chi no soko
Kokoro no yami ni aru sono gen'ei wo
Uramitsutsu ochiteyuke

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Let all interferences disappear as they struggle
into the dark, dark bowels of the earth.
That illusion in the darkness of the heart
is falling into bitterness...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Kurumichi mo sarumichi mo
Dare mo mina kodoku wo shiri
Kanashimi wo kakusu tame
Fuzoroina mure wo tsukuru

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
On the road that comes and the road that goes
everyone comes to know of loneliness
and in an endeavor to hide their sorrows
forms an unbalanced group

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Kizuguchi wo nameau
Itsuwari no nareai
Yowai kokoro no kono te de
Ima, houmurou

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
By licking each others wounds
they form false liaisons.
By my own hands
I shall now bury those weak of heart.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Jashin no michibiki ni mi wo yudanete
Fukai fukai yo no hate
Kokoro no kage ni aru sono sasayaki ni
Shitagatte toketeyuke

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Give in to being guided by this dark heart
to the deep, deep extremities of the earth.
Obey that whisper in the shadows of your heart
and fuse with it...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Kizuna nado iranai kami ichijuu no
Fukai fukai kanashimi
Nakama nado iranai sono gen'ei ha
Nikushimi ni kawaru kara

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
There is no need for the deep, deep despair
of paper-thin bonds
There is no need for comrades because
that illusion shall turn into hatred...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Jama mono ha kiesare mogakinagara
Kurai kurai chi no soko
Kokoro no yami ni aru sono gen'ei wo
Uramitsutsu ochiteyuke

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Let all interferences disappear as they struggle
into the dark, dark bowels of the earth.
That illusion in the darkness of the heart
is falling into bitterness...

Translator's Notes:

^ The key word here was "mono" which is somewhat vague.
In the end standard words such as "one" didn't work very well and made the meaning of the lines a bit muddled so I chose to use "souls" instead.
It may be less literal but it makes the most sense and gives off a slightly more poetic air.

A big thanks to Samanjm for helping in straightening things out. :)
