断章を紡ぐ序曲 ~ Imperial Circus Dead Decadence

a1290069271_16

First post of 2019, so happy new year! And for your (my?) joy, I’ve fixed the comiket number because I was one year ahead.

A post about winter comiket would have been more appropriated, but (of course) I got sick and wasn’t able to go there. Hence, I haven’t bought any C95 album yet. Hence, no C95 post yet. And thus, I decided to start this 2019 with Imperial Circus Dead Decadence.

I should’ve translated this a long time ago, together with the whole album, but because of many reasons I’ve never done that.

Right now I guess I just want to finally translate the whole story ICDD created, though starting from the second album is not exactly the best way to start. But well. I guess I will translate the first album after this.

Once again, these few lines are somehow a small explanation of what is happening and are not sung in the song.

Notes

断章を紡ぐ序曲”, “The prelude that connects fragments”. Where “fragments” should be read as “literal fragments”. In other words, this is the song that should connect the story of the previous album to this one.

断章を紡ぐ序曲

退廃の物語が、再び幕を開ける。惨劇の果てに生まれ落ちた少女の名は”オフェストラ”彼女の見る新たな世界、人々の歴史は無慈悲でありながら温かさを残す。
生きるということそのものに対する答え、彼女は其れを追い求めていく……。

The curtains open once again on the tale of decadence. The name of the girl born at the end of that tragedy is “Ophestra”.
In the new world the girl looks at, people’s history is merciless, yet leaves warmth behind.
The girl is pursuing an answer that will define the meaning behind living.

―第一の退廃世界は、ある少女の命へと収束した。そして彼女自身、滅び再生する世界そのものへと姿を変えた―

-daiichi no taihai sekai wa, aru shoujo no inochi e to shuusoku shita. soshite kanojo jishin horobi  saisei suru sekai sono mono e to sugata wo kaeta-

-The first world of decadence converged into the life of a certain girl. And then, the girl herself shaped its appearance into a world where destruction was back-

運命は惨劇の血を喰らい、やがで世界は扉の外へ……第二の退廃世界へとその概を昂進していく。

unmei wa sangeki no inochi wo kurai, yagate sekai wa tobira no sono e…… daini no taihai sekai e to sono oomu wo koushin shiteiku.

Destiny devours the blood of tragedies, and finally the world opens to the outside…… to the second world of decadence where it’s even worse.

古より沙汰なりて、痣と失すの一意思であり、黒き人ともいわれる者がいた。
この世界を外から見続ける。
幾度と無く繰り返される終わり、幾度と無く争い滅んでいく世界
其の世界に果たして意味があるのか、計り知れぬ遥より募る憤怒に似た感情
死を司りて尚、蒙昧とした生を見つめる。

inishie yori sata narite, aza to usu no ichiishi de ari, kuroki hito to mo iwareru mono ga ita.
kono sekai wo soto kara mitsudzukeru.
ikudo to naku kurikaesareru owari, ikudo to naku arasoi horondeiku sekai
sono sekai ni hatashite imi ga aru no ka, hakari shinanu haruka yori tsunoru fundo ni nita kanjou
shi wo tsukasadori nao, moumai toshita iki wo mitsumeru.

There was once a person called the blackened one, an incident from the past, willing to erase his birthmark.
He kept gazing at this world from outside.
A world consumed by countless conflicts, heading towards the same end over again.
Whether or not there was a meaning in that world, there was an emotion similar to anger growing stronger from a distance he couldn’t guess.
He rules death, and gazes at ignorant lives.

血塗られた物語の落とし子、断章を紡ぐ少女、廃した世界より生まれいずる少女
姿形は不定であり、彼女の前では時は力を持たない。
赫き母の意思は彼女へと受け継がれ、その目で世界を見つめる。
生の象徴なりて、死を想う。

chinurareta monogatari no otoshiko, danshou wo tsumugu shoujo haishita sekai yori umareizuru shoujo
sugatakatachi wa futei de ari, kanojo no mae de wa toki wa chikara wo motanai.
kagayaki haha no ishi wa kanojo e to uketsunagare, sono me de sekai wo mitsumeru.
iki no shouchou narite, shi wo omou.

The stepchild of a tale smeared with blood, the girl who connects fragments, the girl born from a forsaken world.
Her appearance is unknown, and time has no power on her.
The girl inherited her bright mother’s will, and gazed upon the world with such eyes.
She becomes a symbol of life, and feels death.

悲劇と惨劇は、姿を変えて互いを追い求めように奏で合い
無限を捨て手に入れた愛は輝き続け、其処に不可思議さを顕す
血に塗れて生まれた子は、愛を受け継ぎ
凄惨な骸は儚くも美しい
永遠に邂逅できぬ狂おしさに、涙が頬を伝い
人が人である限りの愚かしさを嘆いた
やがて少女と骸が出会い
牙城で愚かしさ故の愛おしさを叫ぶ
傷つけあうものたちは再び終わりを迎える

higeki to sangeki wa sugata wo kaete utagai wo oimotomeyou ni kanade ai
mugen wo sute te ni ireta ai wa kagayakitsudzuke, soko ni fukashigisa wo arawasu
chi ni nurete umareta ko wa ai wo uketsugi
seisan na mukuro wa hakaraku mo utsukushii
eien ni kaikou dekinu kuruoshisa ni namida ga hoho wo tsutai
hito ga hito de aru kagiri no orokashisa wo nageita
yagate shoujo to mukuro ga deai
gajou de orokashisa ye no itooshisa wo sakebu
kizutsukeau monotachi wa futatabi owari wo mukaeru

Dramas and tragedies, they match by altering their appearance and chasing each other.
The love she obtained by throwing away her eternity keeps shining, showing its wonder.
The child born and tainted in blood inherited love.
A gruesome corpse that’s fleeting, yet beautiful.
Tears flow down on her cheeks, for the madness of never be able to meet.
People grieved for the foolishness they hold.
And finally, the girl and the corpse meet.
She shouts her former love and stupidity in the bastion.
And once again those who hurt each other meet the end.

その時、少女は――。

sono toki, shoujo wa……

That moment, the girl……

“此処はどこなの?此処はとても暗いよ……ねぇ…暗いよ……”

“koko wa doko nano? oko wa totemo kurai yo…… nee… kurai yo……”

“What’s this place? It’s so dark here…… right… so dark……”

“では、光を見に行こう”

“dewa, hikari wo mi ni ikou”

“Then, shall we go see the light?”

ばらり……ばらりと、断片は再び集う。第二の退廃世界、此処は凄惨(聖餐)の謳

barai…… barari to danpen wa futatabi tsudou. daini no taihai sekai, koko wa seisan no uta

Fluttering…… fluttering the fragments gather once again. The second world of decadence, the song of the Holy Communion.

  1. You’re actually the real mvp for translating this <3. I'm too dumb to understand if the blackend one is supposed to be Rostfel or the devil, but hopefully i'll understand by the time the others are translated.

  2. First of all, hello! I don’t know if you’ll probably see this but, I was wondering if you can translate the song ヘルマフロメディアの肋骨 by ICDD and – 狂い匣と嘘吐き遊びの庭園 by Vermillion D Alice Syndrome. I’ve been looking for their lyrics for years and even have tried typing it in Japanese but I’ve had no luck in finding them. Those are two of my favorite songs and I would be forever thankful if you could translate them (if you can of course) and it would really mean a lot. I hope I’m not asking for too much..

    • Hello!
      ヘルマフロメディアの肋骨 is a bonus track, which means, no lyrics. Hence, I will not translate this song.
      As for 狂い匣と嘘吐き遊びの庭園, I have the lyrics, so I will be able to translate -although, I have no idea when.

      This said, sorry for the late replay and have a nice day!

      • Sorry to trouble you with another request

      • Vermillion-D Alice Syndrome – 狡猾なる混沌の仔と至極たる黎明に捧ぐ葬斂の劇詩j It’s a phenomenal song that I can sing verbatim, but I have no idea what it means. Much thanks in advance.
