Lyrics from
Hitohi hitoyo ni  tsuki wa terazu tomo
Kanashimi ni nuedori  naku
Waga kaheri misuredo
Hana wa chirinubeshi
Nagusamuru kokoro wa
Kenuru ga gotoku

Lyrics from
The moon fails to shine down on either day or night,
And the night bird calls out in sadness.
When I turn to look,
The flowers had all fallen away.
It was as if all comfort
Had vanished from the world.

Lyrics from
Aratayo ni  kamu tsudoite
Yo wa ake
Nuedori  naku

Lyrics from
As the gods leave to gather in the new world,
Day breaks,
And the night bird calls out.

Lyrics from
Saku hana wa
Kami ni kohinomu
Ikeru yo ni
Agami kanashimo
Ime wa  kenu
Ura mite  chiru

Lyrics from
The blossoms
Beseech the gods.
"Even though in this world
We may know grief and suffering,"
"Our dreams shall never die,"
And they fall from the branch in anger.

Lyrics obtained from Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence DVD.
