Longinus

Longinus +1

by FLOPPY | on GREENWORLD
Lyrics & Music: Sharaku Kobayashi
Translation by Aka

言葉飲み込むあなたの青ざめた顔
思い出すたび私は膝を抱え
独りでいると押し潰されそうになり
それが怖くて部屋の明かりを消した
.
kotoba nomikomu anata no aozameta kao
omoidasu tabi watashi wa hiza wo kakae
hitori de iru to oshitsubusaresou ni nari
sore ga kowakute heya no akari wo keshita
.
Each time I remember your pale face as you take
in those words, I hug my knees

While I’m alone, I feel like I’m crushed
As that scared me, I switched off the light in this room
.
*喧噪は槍となり自我を持ち私ごと貫く
.
*kensou wa yari to nari jiga wo mochi watashi goto tsuranuku
.
*The ruckus becomes a spear that my self holds and pierces me +1
.
**真理に近付く程に遠ざかる
溢れる想いは飲み込まれて
見下ろす数多の星も消えてゆく
全能夢見る子供達よ
.
**shinri ni chikadzuku hodo ni toozakaru
afureru omoi wa nomikomarete
miorosu amata no hoshi mo kieteyuku
zennou yume miru kodomotachi yo
.
**As we get closer to the truth, it gets further away
The overflowing feelings are understood
Even the many planets looking down on us will be erased
We are children seeing an omnipotent dream
.
***誘われるまま星の引力に抱かれ
死にもよく似た感覚楽しみ目を閉じた
.
***sasowareru mama hoshi no inryoku ni dakare
shini mo yoku nita kankaku tanoshimi me wo tojita
.
***Lured in, wrapped up in the planet’s gravity
Enjoying this feeling like death, eyes closed
.

+1: Longinus was the guy who pierced Jesus’ side while he was up on the cross.
+2 This song was pretty difficult to translate (for a Sharaku song anyway). This line was particularly difficult.
