Lyrics from
rinkaku o tsutau
yume ya ai o mushoku ni kaenagara
chigiru yakusoku ga owari o tsugeru

Lyrics from
Wiping out the colors
of the dream and love that form my outline,
this promise now informs me of the end.

Lyrics from
yaketa nohara ni wa utsuro o tsumu
suketa shiroi hada, sono rinka ni sasageru

Lyrics from
In a scorched prairie with no flowers, I pluck emptiness.
I'll offer up my transparent white skin to the ghostly fire
with this poem.

Lyrics from
yume kara
yume kara yume e garasu no michi e
yume kara namida sae kiesatte
yume kara
yume kara sameta kono sekai de wa
omoide sae yume to nari...

Lyrics from
From one dream,
from one dream to another dream, unto a glass road.
From the dream, even tears will evaporate.
From the dream,
in this world when I have awakened from the dream,
even my memories will turn out to be a dream.

Lyrics from
habataku toki, utsushi
shin'on ga sashishimesu
uso o kanaderu

Lyrics from
As I flap my wings, I begin to sketch what I see
following the direction of my heartbeat,
which is playing for me a symphony of lies.

Lyrics from
shajitsuka no you ni
kagirinaku genjitsu o egakidasu
"soba ni ite hoshii"
egao ni kaete

Lyrics from
Like a realist,
I begin sketching infinite reality.
"I wish you were with me."
I uttered with a smile.

Lyrics from
musakui ni furimaita negai wa tada
dare no tame de mo naku yowasa o utsushidasu

Lyrics from
All those wishes I've been randomly sprinkling
are not for anyone, but merely to reflect my powerlessness.

Lyrics from
koko ni iru kono ore wa
ima nani o utau?

Lyrics from
As I remain in this place,
what shall I sing?

Lyrics from
"negau koto sae yurusarenai"

Lyrics from
"I won't even be allowed to have wishes."

Lyrics from
oni-san kochira te no naru hou e
oni o tsukamae watashi to kawa...

Lyrics from
Come this way, oni, to the sound of my clapping.
When I catch the oni, we'll switch...[1]

[1] This stanza references a modified tag game, in which the blindfolded tagger/"it" must try to catch other players by following the sound of their clapping hands. The caught player becomes the new "it". In Japanese, oni ("demon") is what the tagger/"it" is called.
