2012 (須藤元気/Sudou Genki/Genki Sudo/World Order)

^I can’t ever find the reason, but I always think that this artist matches this music – somehow…?

Requested by: Nijiru

This wasn’t on my list, but I said I’d do it if he found the lyrics so Ta-dah!

I’m going to go back to my reading for a while and then probably do 嘘と慟哭 later tonight (or sometime before I fall asleep tomorrow morning).

Notes:
I used “born anew” instead of “cleansing”, because I couldn’t keep the image of racial cleansing or cult cleansing out of my head – what a world we live in now that such a word carries such a bad connotation…

“Seven directions” is like “all directions” – the number 7 has a lot of religious sort of connotations and I didn’t want to unnecessarily delve into that, but you can if you want.

“Completely five times intoxicated” – that’s exactly what it says, (if you change the verb tense to “let us be”). Basically, I figure it means (along with the shouting man on the other side of the rainbow bridge) that a change is coming – but why fear it? Embrace it. Trust change.

須藤元気 (Sudou Genki/Genki Sudo)

つみ重ねた歴史が 終わりを告げ
文明周期の記憶 よみがえる
知らない世界を思い出して
未知なる出会いが 現れてく

tsumikasaneta rekishi ga owari wo tsuge
bunmeishuuki no kioku yomigaeru
shiranai sekai wo omoidashite
michi naru deai ga arawareteku

All the history we’ve laid down comes to an end
The memories of our cycle of civilizations revived
We remember a world we never knew –
A meeting we have yet to

Perfection is when we’re here
Perfection is where we’re going to
周期の終わり 進化の開始
銀河の時代に僕らは目覚め
七方向に祈りささげ
浄化のために歩みだそう
Perfection is when we’re here
Perfection is where we’re going to

shuuki no owari shinka no kaishi
ginga no jidai ni bokura wa mezame
nanahoukou ni inorisasage
jouka no tame ni ayumidasou

Perfection is when we’re here
Perfection is where we’re going to
The end of one cycle is just the start of something more
We wake in the age of the milky way
Lifting prayers in seven directions
Walking forth so we can be born anew
Perfection is when we’re here
Perfection is where we’re going to

虹の橋向こうからだれか叫ぶ
沈黙の力に 意識ゆだね
光りの糸で夢 つむぎだして
知らない世界の 扉開く

niji no hashi mukou kara dare ka sakebu
chinmoku no chikara ni ishiki yudane
hikari no ito de yume tsumugidashite
shiranai sekai no tobira hiraku

On the far side of this rainbow bridge, someone yells out
But we’ve entrusted our conscious to the power of silence
With threads of light, we weave new dreams
And the gate opens to a world we never knew

Perfection is when we’re here
Perfection is where we’re going to
終わりの開始 浄化の開始
銀河の起源に僕らは帰る
3オクターヴを僕ら見送り
完全5度に酔いしれよう
Perfection is when we’re here
Perfection is where we’re going to

owari no kaishi jouka no kaishi
ginga no kigen ni bokura wa kaeru
san octave wo bokura miokuri
kanzen godo ni yoishireyou

Perfection is when we’re here
Perfection is where we’re going to
The beginning of the end is just the beginning of rebirth
We return to the origins of the milky way
Let us send three octaves and watch them go
Competely five times intoxicated
Perfection is when we’re here
Perfection is where we’re going to

  1. Is this a touhou song? I don’t recognize the character

    • Nope, it does not have the Touhou tag. :3
      I do non-Touhou stuff from time to time :)

        Ya, normally because I request stuff. :P Thanks for the translation again.

  2. Oh yea, I forgot to look at the tags. Oh well, nothing wrong with diversity

    Thanks for the lyrics!

    I have a question about a part of one. There seems to be a discrepancy between lyrics and song at “shichihoukou ni inorisasage”. It totally sounds like genki sings “hanahoukou” instead of “shichihoukou”, so I’m wondering if I’m missing something or maybe that bit got overlooked? I’m just curious.
