Lyrics

Kanji Rōmaji Translation

その主観に
捉えられた 
不可思議な狂気
語りかける 
碑文の声 
上位なる蝶

Sono shukan ni
Torae rareta
Fukashigi na kyōki
Katari kakeru
Hibun no koe
Jōi naru chō

Inexplicable madness
Possessed by
Your subjectivity
It begins to talk to you
In the voice of the epitaph—
A resplendent butterfly

行き止まりが
示すものを
知るや次なる瞬きで 
あなたの笑顔が
ねじれ落ちてゆく

Ikidomari ga
Shimesu mono wo
Shiru ya tsugi naru matataki de
Anata no egao ga
Nejire ochite yuku

As soon as you find out
What the dead end beholds
In the blink of an eye,
Your smiling face
Distorts and fades away

空へと
真っ直ぐ伸びた
目に見えぬオーブ
無数の
高貴フラメルに繋ぐ
その血脈
死の象徴
操られた
糸の先は―――

Sora e to
Massugu nobita
Me ni mienu ŌBU
Musū no
Kōki FURAMERU ni tsunagu
Sono ketsumyaku
Shi no shōchō
Ayatsurareta
Ito no saki wa―――

Climbing straight
Into the sky
Are countless
Invisible orbs
They are closesly tied to Flamel
That bloodline
Is a symbol of death
Beyond the strings
that control us―――

夢現な
その存在
幾重の迷走
円熟した
ミサはいつか
覚醒をする

Yume utsutsu na
Sono sonzai
Ikue no meisō
Enjukushita
MISA wa itsuka
Kakusei wo suru

Transient as a dream,
Your existence
Has wandered off course many a time
Someday that mellow
Mass of churchgoers
Will awaken (to the truth)

本能ごと
誘う影
追うや母なる温もりの
ヴェールで包み込み
崩れ落ちてゆく

Honnō goto
Izanau kage
Ou ya haha naru nukumori no
BĒRU de tsutsumikomi
Kuzure ochite yuku

As you chase a shadow
That beckons your very instincts
You will be englufed in a veil
Of motherly warmth
Before you crumble and fade away

叫びの
届かぬ螺旋
奇怪な儀式で
閉ざした
嬉々とマイヤーを描く
その様式
神秘のもの
魔法陣は
語りかける―――

Sakebi no
Todokanu rasen
Kikkai na gishiki de
Tozashita
Kiki to MAIYĀ wo egaku
Sono yōshiki
Shinpi no mono
Mahōjin wa
Katari kakeru―――

Within a spiral
Where your screams can't be heard
You have been entrapped there
By a strange ritual
Those patterns which
You joyously sketch like Myer
That style of writing
Is something mystical
Those magic circles
Talk to me―――

空へと
真っ直ぐ伸びた
目に見えぬオーブ
無数の
高貴フラメルに繋ぐ
その血脈
死の象徴
操られた
糸の先は―――

Sora e to
Massugu nobita
Me ni mienu ŌBU
Musū no
Kōki FURAMERU ni tsunagu
Sono ketsumyaku
Shi no shōchō
Ayatsurareta
Ito no saki wa―――

Climbing straight
Into the sky
Are countless
Invisible orbs
They are closesly tied to Flamel
That bloodline
Is a symbol of death
Beyond the strings
that control us―――
