エソテリアン・ヒステリア ~ 石鹸屋

Requested by Maria.

Notes

エソテリアン・ヒステリア”, “Esoterian Hysteria”. I pretty much love the creative (if it can be considered creative) reference to the original theme.

彼女こそが | Made the girl”; if we take this phrase alone, its translation would be something along the line “The girl was the light”. But since it’s part of the line written above, I’ve pretty much rewritten it-
浅ましき衝動 | This shameful”; here the last part of the phrase literally should be “At normal times, it’s already a fatal wound”. I’ve prefer translating this part as “It’s already too late” mainly because “fatal wound” here sounds for me too odd and completely out of place.

エソテリアン・ヒステリア

大袈裟な表現などと 一笑に付されるかもしれぬが
彼女こそが光だった
それが何故 暗く 冷たく 朝日を浴びさせることも叶わず
閉じ込めねばならぬのか

oogesa na hyougen nado to isshou ni fusareru kamoshirenu ga
kanojo koso ga hikari datta
sore ga naze kuraku tsumetaku asahi wo abisaseru koto mo nawazu
tojikomenuba naranu no ka

Exaggerated expressions which may make someone laugh
Made the girl gorgeous
Why is it dark and cold? The morning sun hasn’t risen yet
I wonder if it’s locked somewhere

浅ましき衝動 感情は暴走 平時には既に致命傷
愚かしき妄想 反動は膨張 狂気なら許されるのか
惨らしき発想 才能は極上 彼女さえ恐怖の的か
新たなる罪業 懊悩は矯小 忘却するのか 全てを 嗚呼

asamashiki shoudou kanjou wa bousou heiji ni wa sude nichimeishou
orokashiki mousou handou wa bouchou kyouki nara yurusareru no ka
mugorashiki hassou sainou wa gokujou kanojo sae kyoufu no mato ka
arata naru zaigou ounou wa kyoushou boukyuku suru no ka subete wo aa

In this shameful impulse my emotions overflow; usually, it’s too late
In this foolish delusion my reaction grows bigger; since I’m mad, will you forgive me?
In this gruesome idea my abilities are at their best; will the girl be frightened?
In this new sin my agony is a lie; is this a memory lapse about everything? Ah

彼女の考えた未来は やや夢想的であったとはいえ
温いモノの筈なのに
何という無情さなのか 我々とお前達の
果たして どちらが妖怪なのか

kanojo no kangaeta mirai wa yaya musou teki de atta to wa ie
nukui mono no hazu na no ni
nanitoiu mujou sa nano ka wareware to omaetachi no
hatashite dochira ga youkai nano ka

The future the girl thought about , although it was a little utopic
Made everything a little warmer
How cruel have we been? We and you all
There will truly be a Youkai on one of these paths?

浅ましき衝動 感情は暴走 平時には既に致命傷
愚かしき妄想 反動は膨張 狂気なら許されるのか
惨らしき発想 才能は極上 彼女さえ恐怖の的か
新たなる罪業 懊悩は矯小 忘却するのか 全てを 嗚呼

asamashiki shoudou kanjou wa bousou heiji ni wa sude nichimeishou
orokashiki mousou handou wa bouchou kyouki nara yurusareru no ka
mugorashiki hassou sainou wa gokujou kanojo sae kyoufu no mato ka
arata naru zaigou ounou wa kyoushou boukyuku suru no ka subete wo aa

In this shameful impulse my emotions overflow; usually, it’s too late
In this foolish delusion my reaction grows bigger; since I’m mad, will you forgive me?
In this gruesome idea my abilities are at their best; will the girl be frightened?
In this new sin my agony is a lie; is this a memory lapse about everything? Ah

浅ましき衝動 感情は暴走 平時には既に致命傷
