Re_birthday ~Zenmaijikake no Komoriuta 3~
|Original / Romaji Lyrics||English Translation|
Kuroku nuritsubusareta heya
Nani mo miezu nani mo kikoezu
Hitori furueru yami no naka
in a room awash with black
Unable to see, nor hear a thing
I was left trembling in the darkness
Yoku mireba soko ni wa kyodai na zenmai
Sono saki kara totsujo hibiku
Etai no shirenu bukimi na koe
Looking closer, there was a sizeable mechanism
Then all of a sudden, an unnerving, ominous voice
resounded from beyond
Omae wa kono saki eien ni
Kono heya kara wa derarenu"
You will spend an eternity here
unable to leave this room,"
Mizukara ga kasaneta tsumi no kazukazu wo
Koko ni iru riyuu to ketsumatsu ni kidzuita
Mou ano koro ni wa modorenai no da to
I realised that the many sins that I committed
are the reason why I've ended up here
There's no way that I can change what has been done
Sore wa kitto dareka no nagashita chi no iro
Ryou no ashikubi ni wa aoi iro no kusari
Sore wa kitto dareka no namida no iro
Their colour must represent the blood that someone shed
Both ankles held by blue chains
Their colour must be that of someone's tears
Dare ga utau komoriuta darou ka...
Who could be singing this lullaby...?
Ugokanu zenmai ni tazuneta
Doko kara to mo naku kikoetekuru
Utagoe dake ga boku wo iyasu
I muttered to the motionless gears
It oft comes to me out of nowhere
The singing voice which alone heals me
Sono uta no shinjitsu no imi wo
Soshite boku wa komoriuta ni
Atarashii kotoba wo tsuketashita
the true purpose of that song,
and I came to add new words
to the lullaby
Ochitekita chiisana hikari
Sore wa kitto
a small light fell
It must be
"Tsumi ga keshite yurusareru koto wa nai"
Dakedo mizu to iu kotoba aku to iu kotoba
Bokura wa sorera wo uta e to kaeyou
"Your sins will never be forgiven"
The words "water" and "evil", though,
we shall turn into song
"Kore kara anata wa umarekawaru no yo" to
Aoi ashikase hazure boku ni hanashikakeru
"Kyou ga kimi no atarashii BAASUDEI"
"You are about to be reborn"
Freed from the blue shackles, a voice lets me know
"Today is your new birthday"
I made a decision to translate "zenmai" as either "mechanism" or "gears". Normally, this word would refer to a coil spring within clockwork, but it's very hard to imagine that that is what the lyricist intends the word to mean. Rather, it feels as though "zenmaijikake" was a little too much of a mouthful.
There has been much speculation about this song, though mothy has done little in confirming or denying its meaning.
While it's true that the song bears similarity to "Aku no Meshitsukai" and appears to be an answer song to "Regret Message", it is also connected to the "Clockwork Lullaby" series (as indicated by the song's subtitle) and there is a similarity with the character "Adam" who is found in one of the related books for mothy's works.
"Re_birthday" itself is an event. You can read more about what this means on the series' wikia page.
