I wrote this down to translate about 7 months ago. I got side tracked as you can see. D:
“steel wear” from EastNewSound’s C76 Album Lucent Wish; a mix of Embodiment of Scarlet Devil’s “Centennial Festival for Magical Girls” – the extra stage theme and Scarlet Flandre’s stage theme.
This is quite a strange song, each short stanza is like an image, a dream sequence – and we learn the Flandre can’t quite remember each dream from the next, but for some deja vu – and at the end we find more clearly, that she’s lost in dreams – but are all of them dreams? Locked inside a room unchanging, a doll facing her bed/futon? Ambiguity’s not always a bad thing ^_^
Album: Lucent Wish
In the rough draft of a drawing I drew on paper,
I dance out into the darkness of the night;
Alone and for my own enjoyment,
I take off and fly into the sky
In a restless forest
I match the rythmn of a metronome
That marks its time of days collapsing,
And it drives me mad.
To the voices of the whisperers
To the singing voices of the whisperers
To the ears of the whisperers
“I’m not alone…” I said
Time and time again
In the fleeting sound of a dream
Swaying back and forth
I had forgotten, the
Shining face I saw before
I pick up a doll sitting huddled,
Alone in the corner of a room,
And face it towards the futon;
Hearing grating sounds from the floor,
Surprised I open my eyes
From a crack that vulgar cat’s face
To the voice of that murmuring cat
To the singing voice of that murmuring cat
To the ears of that murmuring cat
“I’m not afraid”, I said to strengthen myself
But I’m still shaking
On the road I was walking
I glass ball came rolling,
So I picked it up…
There’s no punchline.
Where the door opens
In comes reflected the light of the sun
It is so warm, and gentle,
So I reach out my hands to the sky
I surrender myself to
The lazy flow of eternity
Playing the tones of time
The leaves fall from the trees
I stare my head turning one way then the other
At the turning umbrellas giving birth to color
How many times will this repeat?
While I’m lost inside my dreams?
Hey Patchouli’s in that stage too~! We can’t forget her!
