Lyrics from
watasha hana ka  chouchou ka oni ka
aware mi mo yo mo  araryou mono ka
beni no kawari ni  sasu no wa yaiba ja
tanto homete kudashanse

Lyrics from
Am I a flower, a butterfly, or a demon?
Ah! Should I no longer be concerned about my body or this world?
What I wield is not a lipstick, but a piercing blade.
Would you be so kind as to give me plenty of praise?

Lyrics from
watasha saku hana  saite ureshi ya
aware itsuka wa  chiriyuku mo hana
en wa kireru ga  ano ko wa kirenu
kirerya jigoku ga fueteyuku

Lyrics from
I am a blooming flower, happy about my blooming, too.
Ah! However, a flower must scatter away at some point.
I can sever my fate, but cannot sever that child's life.
If I should have killed, only more infernal torture will await me.

Lyrics from
watasha karehana  oni no tsubomi ja
tomete tomaranu  irozuku chiiro ja 
beni mo ano ko mo  washi ni wa iranu
itsuka tsubomi ni modoryanse

Lyrics from
I am a withered flower, the flower bud of a demon.
No matter how hard I try, I cannot stop my being dyed crimson.
To me, neither the lipstick nor that child is needed.
Someday, please kindly allow me to change back into a flower bud.
