月齢11.3のキャンドルマジック // Eleven Point Three Candle Magic

This is the best song to come out of Comiket 79.

*本CDには表現上意図的にノイズ等が含まれています。
“*Included on this CD is intentional noise and such for the purposes of expression.”
^I love Shibayan so much… ヽ(*・◡・*)ノ

I like this album’s plays on fairytale princesses – but remember, Patchouli’s a witch.

I consider anyone able to sing-along to this song a true diva.

[YT Link-w/subs](Courtesy of Aghart101) Listen, but really, Shibayan’s songs deserve lossless, or else the noise isn’t captured perfectly :P

As for everyone else waiting for me to translate songs for them, I’m really sorry I’m being so slow about it, I’ve just been busy and well, since classes have started I’m going to stay fairly busy, but I’ll start working more on them after this one. If I tried to get all of Shibayan’s stuff out first, well – most of the lyrics are very long, and/or complex, so I don’t want to extend you guy’s wait too much longer. I’d feel worse about it, but well, I’m not getting paid for this so… ^_^;

Notes:
On the Title:
月齢 “Getsurei” is the “age of the moon” or the growth of the moon according to the lunar calendar. 15 is “full” 30 is “new”; 3 is a waxing crescent (三日月 “mikadzuki”); 16 is the ever famous (十六夜 “izayoi”). etc. This takes place on 11.3 :) The formula for calculating the moon’s “age” according to the Gregorian calendar is on wikipedia: [link] (ja)
In the song, 3L sings 月齢11.3 as “Eleven-point-three” hence the second romanization of the title.

On “Mahal Ko, Mahal Kita” // “I love you, my love”:
タガログ語(フィリピンの言葉)で マハリコ・マハリキタという言葉があり、 マハリコ(愛しい人)マハリキタ(愛しています)という意味
Thugangel: “If i think it says what it is, “mahal ko, mahal kita”, then it’s most likely, “my love, I love you” lol.”
^Thanks for help with the Tagolog, thugangel and random other person on the internet
I reversed it because I thought it sounded better in English that way. >.> <..<

God, Flame, and the Donkey’s Ear:
In Jewish/Christian mythos people have talked/communicated with God through flames and once through a donkey, and a candle flame looks like a donkey’s ear. ^_^ Hope that clears that up a little.

Because there are a lot of English words in this song in the romaji I just put the English equivalent, which is not necessarily exactly how they are pronounced, I just hate stuff like “PEEJI” for “page”. Also, even if it’s written as “いく” if 3L sings “ゆく” I write “yuku”.

If you needed to know, just in case – if you’re attempting to sing-along:
Incense: insensu || Parchment: pa-chimento || Romance: romansu
Jinx: jinkkusu || Mysterious: misuteriasu || Charm: cha-mu || Orange: orenji
Door: doa || Ginger and Thyme: jinja-・ando・taimu || Mix: mikkusu
Spell: superu || Page: pe-ji || Candle: kyandoru || Magic: majikku
Melancholy: merankori- || “Mahal ko Mahal kita” (Tagolog): mahariko・maharikta
Fancy: fanshi- || Happy End: Happi-endo || Escape: esuke-pu || Magical: majikaru
Lyrical: ririkaru || Script: sukuriputo || Trash: torasshu || Kiss: kisu

I’m minimizing excess words and punctuation in this translation, as a result it may be hard to tell “when a sentence might end” or “what phrase describes another” – but that’s poetry right?

今日の月は甘い蜜の色
5日目の夜 灯すインセンス
綴った名前踊るパーチメント
指の先に含ませた秘密
夢のように溶けていくもの
雪のように深く閉じ込めて
世界の傾き少しだけ変えてみるの
お姫様にはできないヒメゴト

Kyou no tsuki wa amai mitsu no iro
Itsukame no yoru tomosu incense
Tsudzutta namae odoru parchment
Yubi no saki ni fukumaseta himitsu
Yume no you ni toketeyuku mono
Yuki no you ni fukaku tojikomete
Sekai no katamuki sukoshi dake kaetemiru no
O-hime-sama ni wa dekinai himegoto

The moon tonight is the color of sweet honey
This fifth night I light incense
The name I’d written dances across my parchment
This secret held in my fingertips
Melts like a dream
Locked away deep like snow
I’ll try and change the world’s inclinations just a little
This secret a princess just can’t keep

赤いロマンスも黄色いジンクスでも
ゆらゆらオレンジの火の中ミステリアス・チャーム
赤いロマンスは 真夜中飾った青を
注げば紫に変わるわミステリアス・チャーム

Akai romance mo kiiro jinx demo
Yurayura orange no hi no naka mysterious charm
Akai romance wa mayonaka kazatta ao wo
Sosogeba murasaki ni kawaru wa mysterious charm

A red romance, or perhaps a yellow jinx
A mysterious charm wavering amidst an orange flame..
When I pour this red romance over the blue scattered across midnight
It’ll turn violet, my mysterious charm

月齢11.3の夜
膨らむ月にのぞくデザイア
ジンジャー&タイム ミックスのスペル
指の先に含ませた秘密
夢のように溶けていくもの
雪のように深く閉じ込めて
世界の傾き少しだけ変えてみるの
お姫様にはできないヒメゴト

Eleven-point-three no yoru
Fukuramu tuki nozoku desire
Ginger and thyme mix no spell
Yubi no saki ni fukumaseta himitsu
Yume no you ni toketeyuku mono
Yuki no you ni fukaku tojikomete
Sekai no katamuki sukoshidake kaetemiru no
O-hime-sama ni wa dekinai himegoto

Tonight, the moon at eleven-point-three
With desire, I glance toward the waxing moon
Mixing a spell with ginger and thyme
This secret held in my fingertips
Melts like a dream
Locked away deep like snow
I’ll try and change the world’s inclinations just a little
This secret a princess just can’t keep

白く始めるの
白で始めるわ 月のページ
白く始めるの
白く始めるの……

Shiroku hajimeru no (Eleven a One Two Three)
Shiro de haijmeru wa (Eleven a One Two Three) Tsuki no page
Shiroku hajimeru no (Eleven a One Two Three)
Shiroku hajimeru no……

It starts white (Eleven, One, Two, Three)
I’ll start with white, (Eleven, One, Two, Three) a page of the moon
It starts white (Eleven, One, Two, Three)
It starts white…

メランコリーな朝の匂い
薄れさせていくキャンドルの炎
燃やす想いはおままごとのお家
神様?
まるでロバの耳の穴

Melancholy na asa no nioi
Usuresaseteyuku candle no honoo
Moyasu omoi wa omamagoto no o-uchi
Kami-sama?
Maru de roba no mimi no ana

In drifts the scent of melancholic morning
The flame atop this candle is fading
My burning emotions a house for dolls
God?
Looks just like a donkey’s ear to me

“マハリコ・マハリキタ”を誰かに
少し意地悪な妖精のファンシー
ハッピーエンドは8文字の言い訳
神様?
今日もエスケープ

“Mahal ko Mahal kita” wo dareka ni
Sukoshi ijiwaru na yousei no fancy
Happy end wa hachi moji no iiwake
Kami-sama?
Kyou mo escape

Saying “I love you, my love” to someone
Is just the teasing fancy of a faerie
This “happy end” is but an eight-lettered excuse
God?
Today I escape again

階段に逃げた靴はマジカル
荊の中眠るならリリカルに
世界の外側のスクリプト
手に入れるのはいつでもお姫様

Kaidan ni nigeta kutsu wa magical
Ibara no naka nemuru nara lyrical ni
Sekai no sotogawa no script
Te ni ireru no wa itsudemo mo o-hime-sama

Those slippers racing down the stairs are magical
Or for her, sleeping amidst the thorns, it’s lyrical
But none of those scripts are of this world
Only princesses get those roles

パステル色のスウィーツの中は
合わせ鏡の迷路と同じね
夢見心地の部屋のドアの向こう
神様 ひどいサボタージュ

Pastel-iro no sweets no naka wa
Awase-kagami no meiro to onaji ne
Yumemi-gokochi no heya no door no mukou
Kamisama hidoi sabotage

Inside these pastel colored sweets
It’s just like a labyrinth made of mirrors
Behind the doors of this dreamy room
God, you’ve done me an awful sabotage

マグネティックな夜に繰り返す
シリアスな痛み キャンドルの炎
燃える想いも落書きの花園
神様?
まるでロバの耳の穴

Magnetic na yoru ni kurikaesu
Serious na itami candle no honoo
Moeru omoi mo rakugaki no hanazono
Kami-sama?
Maru de roba no mimi no ana

The magnetic nights cycle through
In serious pain, the flame atop this candle
My burning emotions a scribbled flower garden
God?
Looks just like a donkey’s ear to me

予定調和の最後のページの中
トラッシュなキス
NOよ いらないわ

Yoteichouwa no saigo no page no naka
Trash na kiss
NO yo iranai wa

On the last page for “Peace and Harmony”
A trashy kiss
NO! I don’t need that!

濡れた指先で摘みとる今日のチャーム
