断章を紡ぐ序曲 ~ Imperial Circus Dead Decadence

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.

RE:Into The Frontier

Don’t cry!
My eyes are bleeding
Frontier is in sight of me
Why not?!
Decide your own destiny
Is only it justice?
Goodbye!
The moon is shining
At last, time has come
I’m sick of this life!
Is only it justice?

I restart with suffering
Frontier is in sight of me
Wish that wrath, destroy and kill
Fall out darkside
I’m sick of this life
Is only it justice?
Is only it justice?

誰もが答えを求めた
涙と嘘を
戸惑いを経て
やがて紅と微睡み
恋焦がれた願いならば
其の手に抱いて咲いた
狂いそう
愛が葬ら
焔と共に抱いて
Your response was my legacy,
Ally and mercy

Everybody experienced tears for an
Answer we sought,
Lies and confusion
In the end if crimson and sleeping
Were the wishes you yearned for
You embraced them with your hands and bloomed
A love that feels like
It’s making you mad
Is a burial
Embraced with flames
Your response was my legacy,
Ally and mercy

My eyes are bleeding

Why not?!

I’m sick of this life!
Is only it justice?
What is meaning of this life?

(蒙昧とした生命の形とは
死別の先にある物

抗いは無為ではない
其の御手の中にある罪人である
であるが故に示さなければならない)

shibetsu no saki ni aru mono
sono katachi mo shiranai
aragai wa mui de wa nai
sono ote no naka ni aru zainin de aru

(The shape of life left in ignorance
Is what stands before bereavement
That doesn’t even know that form
Opposing is not a passive act
Criminals lie in the palm of your hand
They lie there, therefore you must show them)

Withstand,
The test of of time
The test of life
Don’t save appearances
See life with greedy eyes
To grab what’s ahead in the future

触れることを 願いを告げるも宵闇へ
亡き翼を両足にかえて

fureru koto wo negai wo tsugeru mo yoiyami e
naki tsubasa wo ryousoku ni kaete

Touching and saying a wish are already in the dusk
Where dead wings are replaced by feet

境界の中 微睡みと惑いを捨て

kyoukai no naka madoromi to madoi wo sute

Throw away sleep and delusion inside boundaries

Adults make children charged with their dream
And they have decieved their heart
But, don’t care about it
Follow the way which you believe

We shall be released
From the society
If you can dream it
You can do it
But we never forget
Go to the frontier
With my past life

War, peace and revolution
History repeats itself
Don’t have time to repeat!

邪神の婚礼、儀は愛と知る。~ Imperial Circus Dead Decadence

How awesome is this cover.

A big note about the song: as usual, ICDD write their lyrics in old Japanese for most. Which means, I should translate them in old English, using fancy words and possibly forms like “art thou”. This said, considering I am currently not even half way through studying JLPT N1, that I will probably never get into old Japanese and that I have very limited knowledge of early modern/middle English, I’ve decided to save me a lot of headaches and translating this in contemporary English. Except for maybe a few parts. Also, screams for the 99% of the song, so romajis are a big question mark, hence why I didn’t add them.

Requested by mity, Nyokota, and possibly other people as well.

Notes

The first few lines before the actual lyrics are a small explanation of what is happening. The stories behind ICDD’s album are so good IMO. Anyway, just beware that the following is not sung in any part of the song.

“嘗ての退廃世界を看取った一組の男女、彼らは其の無限の命を捨てて愛を知った。
オフェストラが受けた生とは、愛の結晶である。
其の結晶は終りをもつ。彼女は有限の命と無限の愛を知った。”

“This couple, a man and a woman, was once taking care of the decadence world. Then, they threw away their immortal life and knew love. The life Ophestra obtained, is the fruit of their love.
And that fruit holds the end. She is the girl who knew both mortal life and immortal love.”

邪神の婚礼、儀は愛と知る。”, “jashin no konrei, gi wa ai to shiru.”, “At the devil’s wedding, the ceremony learns love.”

Random references

醜聯に耽る葬ら”, this is quite an obvious reference to “the Blood Funeral Ophestra”, whom original title was “the Blood Funeral Ophestra – 醜聯に耽る葬ら” (the Blood Funeral Ophestra – The burial indulged in an ugly banquet) in the DyingLife’s “Extreme Doujin” compilation, later remastered and retitled as “血塗られた醜聯に耽る葬ら” (The burial indulged in an ugly banquet drenched in blood) in ICDD’s “狂おしく咲いた凄惨な骸は奏で、愛おしく裂いた少女は聖餐の詞を謳う。”, better known as the CD where you will find this song as well. Or uta’s CD. Or however you know that CD.

邪神の婚礼、儀は愛と知る。

悲しいって気持ちは嬉しいって感情を知っているから―。

We feel sadness right because we know what is happiness―.

煉獄より出でたる憤怒 其の形は赫く 人の生み出した罪を背負い滴る
七つの罪を喰らい 憎悪の侭に駆逐した 罪を罪で贖った

She is the anger that came out from purgatory shines, oppressed by the sins people brought
She devoured the seven deadly sins, exterminated them in hatred, atoned sins with sins

信仰など不要 我が御霊こそが核である
新たなる夜明け 激烈な記憶

She doesn’t need something like faith, her spirit is the seed
For a new dawn, for violent memories

地獄の底に在る恐怖 其の姿に似て 繰り返される悲劇は漆黒
喰らい尽くした大地に咲くのは 黒い薔薇 絶望の花

The fear lying at the bottom of hell resembles her, an endless tragedy dyed in pitch black
Blooming on the ground, completely devoured, there’s a black rose, the flower of despair

信仰など不要 我が御霊こそが核である
新たなる夜明け 激烈な記憶

She doesn’t need something like faith, her spirit is the seed
For a new dawn, for violent memories

煉獄より出でたる憤怒 其の形は赫く 人の生み出した罪を背負い滴る
七つの罪を喰らい 憎悪の侭に駆逐した 罪を罪で贖った

She is the anger that came out from purgatory shines, oppressed by the sins people brought
She devoured the seven deadly sins, exterminated them in hatred, atoned sins with sins

信仰ななど不要 我が御霊こそが核である
新たなる夜明け 激烈な記憶

She doesn’t need something like faith, her spirit is the seed
For a new dawn, for violent memories

願いは絶たれたのだと 諦めと境涯
其れでも彼の愛は彼女を貫いた

Her hopes were eradicated and she had to give up
And yet his love still ran through her.

だから其れ故に愛は咲いた 互いの命を混ぜる行為を
退廃の世界は残酷で在りながら 美しい
その答えが私 醜聯に耽る葬ら

That’s why love bloomed, the act of mutually blending their lives
In the world of decadence, so cruel, yet so beautiful
I am that answer, the burial indulged in an ugly banquet

逸し 舞い葬し 蔽す 闘し 阿修羅

Deviant, dancing burial, conceal, fight, Asura

“父さま 母さま 私は 終わり在る世界を見続け 私の答えを探します”

“Father, mother, I will observe the world where the end lies and seek for my answer.”

宿る命 決意という名の光

The life we carry, a light called determination

だからそれ故に愛は咲いた 自らの死を恐れることなく相手を想う
退廃の世界は残酷で在りながら 愛を喪わない
その答えを呉れたモノがいた 彼の心は私の内に在る――。

That’s why love bloomed. She doesn’t fear her own death and thinks about her companion
In the world of decadence, so cruel, yet still knows love
There was somebody I gave that answer to and his heart lies within me……

だがそれ故に愛は咲いた 自らの死を恐れることなく相手を想う
退廃の世界は残酷で在りながら 愛を喪わない
その答えを呉れたモノがいた 彼の心は私の内に在る――。

That’s why love bloomed. She doesn’t fear her own death and thinks about her companion
In the world of decadence, so cruel, yet still knows love
There was somebody I gave that answer to and his heart lies within me……

逸し 舞い葬し 蔽す 闘し 阿修羅

Deviant, dancing burial, conceal, fight, Asura

煉獄より出でたる憤怒 其の形は赫く 人の生み出した罪を背負い滴る
七つの罪を喰らい 憎悪の侭に駆逐した 罪を罪で贖った

She is the anger that came out from purgatory shines, oppressed by the sins people brought
She devoured the seven deadly sins, exterminated them in hatred, atoned sins with sins

其れこそが 退廃世界の 最初の 終り

And that was the beginning of the end of the world of decadence

ドラブ ~ Foreground Eclipse

Each and Every Word Leaves Me Here Alone Cover

I have been waiting for this day. The day when I was able to finally read Dorabu’s lyrics and feeling at peace with Foreground Eclipse. I still miss them a lot, but well. It can’t be helped.

On a side note, I think I love the karaoke here in Japan because I can sing Foreground Eclipse’s songs in there. Including this one. That’s why I was able to get the lyrics. Also, some puns can’t be translated but whatever. I guess you either choose to keep the meaning or keep the pun. I think I have done neither.

Notes

Seriously, don’t even try to find a deeper meaning into these lyrics.

“ドラブ”, “Drab”, though I guess you can just call it “Dorabu” because… no reason.

PASSIONATE ANTHEM ~ Roselia

PASSIONATE_ANTHEM_Cover

Just like Sanctuary, this song is not a full version yet, and just like Sanctuary, I will update this page as soon as the full version comes out. Well, only two more weeks left for the 7th single (which has Sanctuary and BRAVE JEWEL in it), which I am warmly waiting because I love Sanctuary (okay, I will stop mention this song now), but I am already looking for the 8th single, which will probably have PASSIONATE ANTHEM in it -or at least I hope so.

Anyway, it has been a while since my last post on Roselia. More than two months. Wow. And I have just realized I haven’t posted BLACK SHOUT yet, though I have finished that translation a long time ago -around June maybe? I guess I should start to schedule all the translations sitting in my hard disk.

Necessary note: these lyrics may be inaccurate because they are not transcribed from any booklet. I will simply update this post as soon as the full song and the actual lyrics will come out. Meanwhile, enjoy!

Lyrics updated with full version. Errors corrected and hopefully now it’s all good. Enjoy!

Yuyoyuppe is great, I’m glad he’s back, and it’s been a while since the last time I translated some vocaloid song. Not that I usually translate vocaloid songs -this might be maybe my 10th something post about a vocaloid song?

Anyway. I wonder if this song, along with Canvas, will be in a new album for C95, or if he will do something else for that comiket, or if he will do nothing and just sell reprints of his old works.

About Canvas, I’m also planning on posting that translation soon enough, but I like this song most, so I decided to publish this one first. Enjoy!

Notes

The Gerbera is a flower that has a very positive meaning -it symbolizes joy. In addition, accordingly to the color, its meaning changes as well. In meola’s illustration there are white, yellow, orange, pink and red Gerberas, which meaning is, respectively, purity, wealth, happiness, admiration/youth and success.

I think there’s nothing more to add, considering the Gerberas withered.

Gerbera

白い希望を纏って
淡い夢を語った
美しい君を見ていた

shiroi kibou wo matotte
awai yume wo katatta
utsukushii kimi wo miteita

I wore my white hopes
And told my fleeting dream
I looked at you, so beautiful

黒い苦悩を纏って
微笑みをなくした
横たわる君を見ていた

kuroi kunou wo matotte
hohoemi wo nakushita
yokotawaru kimi wo miteita

I wore my black anguish
And lost my smile
I looked at you, lying down

嘆き 悲しみ
ひとつひとつ並べて
憂い 苦しみ
積み重ねた思いは
そこに咲いたガーベラ

nageki kanashimi
hitotsu hitotsu narabete
urei kurushimi
tsumikasaneta omoi wa
soko ni saita gaabera

All my thoughts of
Grief and sorrow lined up one by one
All my thoughts of
Anguish and pain piled up
Are the gerberas bloomed there

思い出してしまえば
息もできないようだ
動かない君を見ていた
見ていた

omoidashiteshimaeba
iki mo dekinai you da
ugokanai kimi wo miteita
miteita

When I bring back the past
It feels like I can’t breathe
I looked at you, but you don’t move
I looked at you

望み 喜び
ひとつひとつ並べて
君へ捧げる
溢れていた想いと
そこで枯れたガーベラ

nozomi yorokobi
hitotsu hitotsu narabete
kimi e sasageru
afureteita omoi to
soko de kareta gaabera

I line up all my
Wishes and joys, one by one
And give them to you
With my overflowing feelings
And the gerberas withered there

Silence word

I feel I’m not right person for you and
I’m thinking tilt the sun came up.

君を嫌いになるのは出来なくて

kimi wo kirai ni naru no wa dekinakute

I can’t just hate you

支えることも出来ず
寂しくさせてた
こんなことなら もういっそ
出逢わなければ 良かったの?

sasaeru koto mo dekizu
sabishikusaseteta
konna koto nara mou isso
deawanakereba yokatta no?

You couldn’t even support me
You made feeling lonely
So, wouldn’t it be better
If we had never met?

Tomorrow (I) wish you smile!

いつまでも 消えない
想いが 言葉が

itsumademo kienai
omoi ga kotoba ga

My feelings and words
Will never disappear

I love you. But I can not be with you lost forever.

慣れ合いじゃ満たされず
今更踏み込めず
僕一人が傷つくのは構わないから!!

nareaija mitasarezu
imasara fumikomezu
boku hitori ga kizutsuku no wa kamawanai kara!!

I’m not satisfied by taking each other for granted
But at least we don’t step into each other
Because I don’t care being the one hurt!!

Tomorrow (I) wish you smile!

いつまでも 消えない
想いが 言葉が

itsumademo kienai
omoi ga kotoba ga

My feelings and words
Will never disappear

I love you. But I can not be with you lost forever.

I’m sure that I love you
And I know you love me too
If I can leave from your life now
You start over again
Sometime, you will smile again!

Please don’t cry, it’s my fault!!

いつまでも 見えない
涙が 痛みが!
君に相応しいのは 僕じゃない!!

otsumademo mienai
namida gai tami ga!
kimi ni fusawashii no wa boku janai!!

I’ll never feel
Tears nor pain!!
I’m not the right one for you

Please don’t cry, don’t be sad!!

なんにも出来なくて
ゴメンね。ゴメンね。

nanni mo dekinakute
gomenne. gomenne.

I can’t do anything
I’m sorry. I’m sorry.

I love you. But I can not be with you last forever.

Bullet of Light ~ Thousand Leaves

Yes, there’s only one line in Japanese. And yes, I’m counting this as a translation.

Requested by liuuzaki.

Title: Bullet of Light
Lyrics: Bach
Vocals: Abecky
Arrangement: Bach
Album: DEAD NIGHT BLIND / EARLY YEARS OF SORROW
Circle: Thousand Leaves
Event: C78 / C82
Original: 少女綺想曲 ~ Capriccio | Maiden’s Capriccio | Touhou 4 Lotus Land Story | Hakurei Reimu’s Theme
少女綺想曲 ~ Capriccio | Maiden’s Capriccio | Hakure Shrine’s Second Theme

Bullet of Light

A girl who trails her black hair.
Holy boundary that keeps balance.
The power to exclude defilement increases.
To the moonlight night of lunacy…

People’s wishes are collected and saving is brought by the prayer.
Soul that lurks in boundary and mysterious shrine maiden.
All around dragon theatrical combat.
Positive and negative scattering flowers.
She solves the accident with the bullet of light.

Silent Capriccio. The guardian of a shrine.

神霊が宿る 黒い瞳の中に

shinrei ga yadoru kuroi hitomi no naka ni

Divine spirits are living inside her black eyes.

She becomes weightlessness and flies over the sky.
When she closes her merciless eyes the ultimate spell will be untied.

Gore Screaming Show – Patch and Updates

•October 13, 2018 • 7 Comments

Yes, it’s happening. For real. And we have a whole new blog dedicated, so just click here and follow it straight away.

Why am I saying “we”?
Well, if you have read GSS’ FAQ, you know that I am unable to make a patch by myself. This means, I am not anymore alone in this project -which is awesome for me, since it stimulates me a lot working with somebody.

The saint you have to thank who is making the patch (and thus digging inside that mess called Gore Screaming Show’s game files) is Erika.

As you can see, the screenshots look great and, what else to say? I am so damn excited about this.

Because of this change, I will not anymore publish translation sheets on this blog. As for updates from now on, stay tune on “the Scent of Ashes”!

When we trace a happy dream, that copy is static
But I still haven’t realized it

Where the selfish you is there, appearing everytime I draw

And I’m not lonely
