eliminate anthem

^Rumia is Love.

Requested by: grooven

Forgive me, I can’t stop thinking of “Anthem” by Ayn Rand…

I’ll admit, くまりす often throws lyrics at me that are hard to follow – but they always create interesting images. Who is the storyteller I wonder? I wonder if Rumia ate him. :P – no, but jokes aside. I like the shadow play. Not flowers dancing but “patterns of flowers” dancing. Shadows in other words.

広がる空に 並ぶ影法師
泣いていた

Hirogaru sora ni narabu kageboushi
Naiteita

In the wide expanse of sky, shadows all in line
Were crying

静かな海に 沈む砂模様
流れだす

Shizuka na umi ni shizumu suna-moyou
Nagaredasu

Into the silent sea, patterns of sinking sand
Flow

さまよえば 辿りつく
震えてた あの頃に

Samayoeba tadoritsuku
Furueteta ano koro ni

Whenever I’m lost I find that place
Shaking as I had that time

語りべに問う話 いつも笑って見てた
その思い出が
まだそのままでいた 波にのまれていても
もう忘れないと誓うよ

Kataribe ni tou hanashi itsumo waratte miteta
Sono omoide ga
Mada sono mama de ita nami ni nomareteitemo
Mou wasurenai to chikau yo

I had always smiled and watched, the storyteller tell his tale
Those memories
Are still with me, and even If I am swallowed by these waves
I swear I’ll never forget

この手に触れる 冷めた白い羽
すり抜けて

Kono te ni fureru sameta shiroi hane
Surinukete

These cold white feathers I touch
Slip right through

切り抜いた 花模様
音もなく 舞い降りた

Kirinuita hana-moyou
Oto mo naku maiorita

Cut patterns of flowers
Flutter and dance without a sound

往く当てもなく独り 揺らめく光をみた
その眩しさに
繰り返す音色に ただ耳を傾けて
いま動き出した秒針

Yukuate mo naku hitori yurameku hikari wo mita
Sono mabushisa ni
Kurikaesu neiro ni tada mimi wo katamukete
Ima ugokidashita byoushin

All alone with no place to go, I saw a shimmering light
To its brilliance
To its repeating tones, I lent my ear
Now the second hand ticks

入り組んだ箱の中 囁く声に聞いた
その歌声は
誰かが忘れてた
二つ並んだ影を照らした遠い日の願い

Irikunda hako no naka sasayaku koe ni kiita
Sono utagoe wa
Dare ka ga wasureteta
Futatsu naranda kage wo terashita tooi hi no negai

In that box all scrambled I heard voices whispering
Those singing voices
Are ones someone had forgotten
Two shadows cast themselves over the wishes of faraway days

語りべに問う話 いつも笑って見てた
その思い出が
まだそのままでいた 波にのまれていても
もう忘れないと誓うよ

Kataribe ni tou hanashi itsumo waratte miteta
Sono omoide ga
Mada sono mama de ita nami ni nomareteitemo
Mou wasurenai to chikau yo

I had always smiled and watched, the storyteller tell his tale
Those memories
Are still with me, and even If I am swallowed by these waves
I swear I’ll never forget

    Thank you! I really wanted to know the lyrics for this one I’ve grown quite fond of it! I too really like the imagery! I love Rumia she needs more attention!

    • Yeah, I’m quite a Rumia fan myself – I like the cute, the cute-bumbling, and the vicious versions :3 / Haven’t had many chances to post images of vicious Rumia though. XD
