Furimuita sono ushiro no (shoumen daare?)
Kurayami ni tsume wo tatete (yoru wo hikisaita)

What was behind me when I turned around (Who's in front?)
I raised my nails to the darkness (And slashed the night)

Raindrops become drops of blood
And stream down my cheeks
If there's no place anywhere that you can return to now...

You can no longer turn back

Beyond the darkness (the morning no longer comes)

Come, lure someone here

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Ogre-san, come here, where I clap my hands [2]
No matter how you escape, I will catch you

The voice I heard is no longer there

[1] Literally "stop at my finger", this expression is used by children to gather others for a game (i.e. tag)
[2] In one of the traditional Japanese children's play, the "Oni" covers his or her eyes with a blindfold, and tries to catch the other players just by the sound of their hands clapping. This line is repeatedly said by the other players to encourage the "Oni" to come and try to get them.
