Lyrics from
Hikari no naka de Mienai mono ga
Yami no naka ni Ukande mieru
Makkura mori no yami no naka de wa
Kinou wa ashita Makkura KURAI KURAI

Lyrics from
Things I cannot see in the light
Float around in the darkness for me to see.
Inside the darkness of the pitch black forest,
Yesterday is tomorrow. In the pitch black, I cry, cry.

Lyrics from
Sakana wa sora ni Kotori wa mizu ni
TAMAGO ga hanete Kagami ga utau
Makkura mori wa Fushigi na tokoro
Asa kara zutto Makkura KURAI KURAI

Lyrics from
The fish are in the sky, the little birds are in the water.
Eggs take flight, and mirrors sing.
The pitch black forest is a mysterious place.
It is pitch black from morning to night, and I cry, cry.

Lyrics from
Mimi wo sumaseba Nanimo kikoezu
Tokei wo mireba Sakasama mawari
Makkura mori wa Kokoro no meiro
Hayai wa osoi Makkura KURAI KURAI

Lyrics from
If you listen closely, you can hear nothing.
If you look at the clock, it goes counter-clock-wise.
The pitch black forest is a maze of the heart.
Fast is slow in the pitch black forest, and I cry, cry.

Lyrics from
Doko ni aru ka Minna shitteru
Doko ni aru ka Dare mo shiranai
Makkura mori wa Ugoki tsuzukeru
Chikakute tooi Makkura KURAI KURAI

Lyrics from
Everyone knows where it is.
No one knows where it is.
The pitch black forest continues to move.
It's close, it's faraway. In the pitch black forest, I cry, cry.

Lyrics from
Chikakute tooi Makkura KURAI KURAI

Lyrics from
It's close, it's faraway. In the pitch black forest, I cry, cry.

Taniyama uses KURAI as a double-meaning. Kurai in general means dark, but in katakana, it could mean "cry".
