本能の少女 – Honnou no Shoujo/A Girl of Instinct

The afternoon storm is like a jet
It roars and it rumbles
It surrounds me,I’m trembling
Found out it’s a swarm of steel
The bright rainbow colored wings
Scatter scales of steel
It knows by instinct what to do
In life,butterflies
Gradation blowing up
In the dancing scales of gold
Long hair streaming
Eyes shut,standing
The spring day storm is like Mach
Their figure is like nature
They have no problems like humans
To bigin with,butterflies don’t commit suicide
The bright rainbow colored wings
Scatter scales of steel
The world won’t change even if I die
Don’t need a meaning to live,it has no sense
Water the life force
Take off the veil of intelligence
Have respect for instinct
The basis of survival
Graduation blowingh up
Inside the scales of gold
Long hair streaming
Eyes open,walking

棒状の罪 – Boujou no Tsumi/Pole-Shaped Sin

With pathos brewing in you, you take the pole-shaped sin like a deadly weapon
And wail inside me, the pitch-black night like the waves in a storm
To be human is itself a sin
The Original Sin burns in a timeless secret room—heat and humidity

*

The night is a beast that knows nothing of morality or logic
We hungered for it so and became something shameless and inhuman
Oh, Augustinus’ voice is condemning us
Oh, we who insatiably lay sin upon sin

ヒス – Hys

Hot, languid, the limits of endurance. Cold, intense, bearing this stress
Summer 8/16 Sunny: An online fraud suspect is arrested
Winter 2/28 Heavy snow: An insurance murder criminal is sentenced to death

Sleepy, bitter, the limits of endurance. Lonely, sad, bearing this stress
Spring 4/5 Cloudy: Allegations against a major construction company, declared innocent
Fall 10/2 Rainy then sunny: An indiscriminate terrorist is wanted for questioning

Nation-wide hysteria
But they call it national security
Blood type A accounts for 40% of the population
With militaristic seriousness, sudden suicide bombings

Heisei-era Japan, affluent Japan
So nervous, but with sudden spontaneous discharges

Nation-wide hysteria
But they call it national security
There was a coup in the past
But the revolution never happened

Heisei-era Japan, affluent Japan
So submissive, but with sudden spontaneous discharges

本能の少女 – Honnou no Shoujo/A Girl of Instinct

A mid-afternoon storm like a jet
Roaring rumbling up from the earth
Shuddering, they completely surround me
Oh, a kaleidoscope of butterflies

Wings the colors of the rainbow
Steel scales scattering

The only thing they can do is stay alive
The butterfly people who know only instinct

Rising in the air in gradations
Golden scales fluttering about
Long hair waving
I close my eyes and stand still

An afternoon spring storm like a Mach
Their shape is that of nature
They don’t have human problems
First of all, butterflies don’t commit suicide

Wings the colors of the rainbow
Steel scales scattering
If I were to die, the world wouldn’t change
But that doesn’t mean I need a reason to live

Throw cold water on your vitality
Take off your veil of intelligence and cast it aside
You should value your instinct
It’s the basis for survival

Rising in the air in gradations
Golden scales fluttering about
Long hair waving
I close my eyes and step forward

いじめ – Ijime/Bullying

They say if you’re beautiful inside
You’ll be beautiful outside, too
But whenever I look in the mirror
I see such a strange face

Every child ever born
Feels that they are beautiful
I don’t cry even when I’m bullied
That’s my redeeming quality

The morning light shines in
The sparrow’s sweet little singing voice
But I wish night would go on forever
Day after day there’s no escape

コンドルが飛んでくる – Kondoru Ga Ton Dekuru/The Condor Has Flown

My gambling was out of control and my family came to stop me
I thanked them but then I gave them the slip, and I just ran and ran
Over the hills and through the valleys
To a place where I was knee-deep in swamp

Blindly, full speed ahead, into the desert wasteland
Naked as the day I was born, I just ran and ran
Which way should I go now
To a place where I don’t know if it’s morning or night

Hateful voices, happy voices
Showered with jeers and praise, I just run and I run

Running barefoot
When my naked feet are on the rocks, I move with my naked arms
My naked feet are stained with blood, my naked arms are cut
My naked feet float in the air, my naked arms grow thick with feathers
When my naked feet dance in the air, I flap my giant wings
