Perverseness Lyrics / Translation
Satori-sama~ ; her theme was one of the best themes to come out of Subterranean Animism, along with Utsuho’s Nuclear Fusion and Parsee’s Green-Eyed Jealousy… well every track on Subterranean Animism is awesome actually.
Yeah~ Metal Girl Band! ;)
“Perverseness” from Unlucky Morpheus’s C76 Album “Jealousy”
Requested by: aesprika/vaespus
Sorry this took forever, my computer went pshkah! on me and spring break laziness set in. D:
Looks like Satori has a secret lover, who tries to get to her while walking a young/less behaved O-rin. I can see why Satori would be jealous of, well – why anyone would be a bit jealous of Koishi.
I went ahead and put “kasha” for English grammar’s sake in the first stanza.
地殻遠い青天井 (chikaku tooi aotenjou)/(earth’s crust+far+blue/limitless ceiling) – this can either mean: “the distant earth’s crust that is like the blue (limitless) sky”/”the earth’s crust, the far away limitless sky” (a list)/”the blue (limitless) sky that is far away from the earth’s crust”/”The earth’s crust’s far limitless sky”/”the limitless sky far from the earth’s crust” (an inverted sky, the liquid burning core being the sky). I tried to pick a meaning closest in context to the rest; I did a sort of combination of the first and last, ie. deep within the earth, clues to that being right is that the flower thief’s intrusion is described as “incandescent”/”burning hot”. “knowing no boundaries” is also tied to 青天井.
As far as the dialogue is concerned: I think (other than the ambiguous narrator in the beginning) Satori says all the lines.
I have no idea how much the “deflowering” connotation rings over to the Japanese culture side of the equation, but maybe that’s why this song’s titled “Perverseness”.

Vocals: Yuki & Fuki
Nagai nagai doukasen no
Shippo no hashi wo mochi tsuretearuku
Norowareta iyashiki sei wo kainarashite
Holding the tip of its
Long, fire whip tail, she takes a kasha for a walk
To tame its cursed and vile nature.
Chikaku tooi aotenjou
Saigen wo shiranai shakunetsu ni
Kokoro fukaku shinobikonda hananusubito
Deep, far away from the inner earth’s ceiling,
Knowing no boundaries, passionately, incandescently
A flower thief steals deep into her heart.
Fumikomanaide ibasho nante koko ni wa nai
Don’t break in.. This isn’t a place you can stay!
Anata, yami wa kowai deshou?
Namanurui chijou e kaerinasai
Eguru manazashi wa tsumi deshou?
Miesugita hitomi ga kowareru mae ni
You, you’re afraid of the dark, right?
Then return to the warmth above ground.
Isn’t this piercing gaze a sin? Leave, now!
Before these eyes that have seen too much break!
Chikakuni itemo kidzukanai
Saigen suru hodo ni yobisamashite
Zengofukaku no trauma ni oboreteyuku
Even if you stay close to me I won’t see you;
You’ll call up hallucinations;
I’ll drown in unconscious trauma!
Chidzukanaide honne nante shiritakunai
Don’t come near me! I don’t want to know your true nature!
Anata, kizu wa kirai deshou?
Wasuretai kioku mo miseteshimau
Kon’na mono wa minikui deshou?
Negete hayaku teokure ni naru mae ni
You, you don’t like getting hurt do you?
I’ll end up showing you memories you’d like to forget.
This thing is disgusting isn’t it?
Run away, quickly! Before it’s too late!
Sotto ushiro kara dakishimete
Hana wo teoru you ni aishitai no
Hontou wa ano ko ga urayamashii
Nante dare ni mo ienai
I really do want to gently embrace you from behind,
To love you, as if I were picking a flower…
I’m jealous of that child,
But I could never tell anyone that.
Fukai yami wa kowai deshou?
Kagayaku nichijou e kaerinasai
Datte yume wa hakanai deshou?
Shirisugita watashi ga kowareru mae ni
You’re afraid of this deep darkness right?
Then return to the sparkling daylight above.
After all, dreams are short aren’t they? Go,
Before this girl who knows too much breaks!
