Lyrics & Music: Sharaku Kobayashi
Translation by Aka

涙が頬を伝う時
私は自我に目覚めた
思い出せるのは暗闇だけ
.
namida ga hoo wo tsutau toki
watashi wa jiga ni mezameta
omoidaseru no wa kurayami dake
.
When tears run along my cheek
My “self” awakened
Darkness is all I remember
.
記憶と記録の狭間で
数列を言葉に換えた
朧げに咲いた花の様に
.
kioku to kiroku no hazama de
suuretsu wo kotoba ni kaeta
oboro ge ni saita hana no you ni
.
On the threshold of memory and records
I exchanged number sequences for words
Like a flower blooming in the haze
.
*夢見たのはただ心だけ欲しいよと
現手にした私は歩き出す
空を見上げたなら青い色澄み渡る
これが仮想なら私は無に還りたい
.
*yume mita no wa tada kokoro dake hoshii yo to
utsutsu te ni shita watashi wa arukidasu
sora wo miageta nara aoi iro sumiwataru
kore ga kasou nara watashi wa mu ni kaeritai
.
*Seeing a dream means I just want a heart
Having achieved consciousness I walk out
If I looked up at the sky, it is clear blue
If this is my imagination, I want to return to nothing
.
思い出せるのは暗闇だけ
朧げに咲いた花の様に
夢果て散るならせめてこの星でならと
願うというこの気持ちは自我なのか?
.
omoidaseru no wa kurayami dake
oboro ge ni saita hana no you ni
yume hate chiru nara semete kono hoshi de nara to
nagau toiu kono kimochi wa jiga na no ka?
.
Darkness is all I remember
Like a flower blooming in the haze
If my dream comes to an end, if at least I’m on this planet,
Were these feelings called wishes my “self”?
.
