Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
hitobito ni imi kirawareta kanojo
inochi no imi wo sagashite ikiru
itami to kurushimi no ooi hibi ni mo
riyuu wo motomete ita

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Detested and hated by everyone
She lives while searching for the meaning of life
Although her days are full of pains and hardship
She still sought a reason for living

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
sono sugata, senaka ni igyou no tsubasa wo mochi
chi ni nureta you na hitomi wo mochi
kanojo no koto wo murabito-tachi wa kou yonda
imawashiki "mononoke no ko"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
She has a pair of grotesque wings on her back
And a pair of eyes the color of crimson blood
The villagers called her
The abominable "child of the demon"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
tada tada,
sotto, hisoyaka ni ikite
itsuka wa dareka, kono mi motomete kureru no wo
zutto zutto machi tsuzukeru, kyou mo asu mo

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
On her end,
She simply led a quiet, lonely life
Waiting, day after day
For the time when someone would need her

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
ikuyo  meguru hoshi no kagayaki wo mitsume
namida wo nagashita to shite mo
motemeta nukumori wa tookute, todokazu
nagerareta ishi no tsumetasa wa, kokoro wo hidoku saite yuku
sore demo nao, akiramezu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Night after night  she looks at the radiance of the stars in the sky
And shed her tears
But the warmth she yearned for is still so far away, out of her reach
The coldness from the stones thrown at her tears her heart apart
And yet, it only serves to harden her determination

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"mononoke no ko" wa, mura no katasumi, tada hitori
nagai inochi wo tsunageru

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The "child of the demon" lives all by herself, in a corner of the village
Counting off the days of her long life

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
totsuzen no saiyaku  kakou no en
hai ni mamireta murabito-tachi
kyoukou no hokosaki wa shizen to kanojo ni muki
hitomi gokuu wo sakenda

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
All of a sudden, a disaster befalls the village  the volcano explodes
Covering the villagers in ash
Naturally, the girl becomes the target of all the blame
People shout, demanding her as a human sacrifice

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
sore demo,
"kore de saiyaku ga osamaru naraba"
kanojo wa unazuite te wo sashidasu
"sou ka, watashi no inochi mo muda de wa nakatta'n da"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Even so,
"If this will help calm down the disaster"
She nods her head and stretches out her hands
"I see, my life was not useless, in the end"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
soshite, seigun mo mienu haiiro no yoru ni
monogatari no owari wo tsugeru, munashii nata no oto ga hibiite
mizu ni kieru sugata, miokuru murabito-tachi wa kizuku
kanojo no saigo no hohoemi ni

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
And thus, on a night when no stars can be seen
The empty sound of an axe echoes in the air, signaling the end of the story
As the villagers watch her sink into the water, they notice
Her last smile

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
yagate minamo no awa ga kieta koro
dareka ga potsuri, tsubuyaku
"ano ko, watashi-tachi ni, ittai nani wo shita?"
imaya murabito kara kyouki wa kieta
"watashi-tachi, ano ko ni, nante koto wo shita no darou......"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Eventually, when the bubbles have vanished from the water surface
Someone whispers
"What exactly has she done to us?"
Now that the madness has disappeared from the villagers
"How could we have done that to her...?"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
kakou wa nao mo are kurutta
hai ni nomareta mura ni wa mou
ugoku mono wa tada hitotsu mo naku
kawaita suna ga, karakara naru

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The volcano raged even more
In the village, which has been swallowed in the rain of ash
There remains not a single living creature
The barren sand is the only thing left, crying with a parched sound

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"mononoke no ko" wa, mizuumi no soko ni
hohoenda mama nemuru

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
At the bottom of the lake,
The "child of the demon" falls into a deep slumber with a smile on her lips
