ナイフ // Knife

I try. Unfortunately I’m feeling that this one’s a bit inadequate :x

Notes:
The first two stanzas are a bit weird – because in Japanese it’s kind of from the attacker/Remilia’s standpoint (well it’s more of an image from the pov of the fangs…) in Japanese, but it would be too awkward to do that and then switch, so I’m keeping the knife wielder/Sakuya at center stage.

“I gently pet and squeeze you tightly” – I visualize “strangling”, but it’s not terribly explicit, even though the word used in Japanese is used for strangling.

噛み締めた 唇が
捜していた 最初の誓い

kamishimeta kuchibiru ga
sagashiteita saisho no chikai

That first vow those lips
Were searching for as they bit into me…

引き寄せた その身体
首筋へ 目印を 表裏 並べたら
エゴという 条件で

hikiyoseta sono karada
kubisuji e mejirushi wo omoteura narabetara
ego to iu jouken’ de

My body drawn forward,
Marks left upon my neck, from within and without
Under the contract of “ego”…

君に触れる その度
全て壊したくなる
君で遊ぶ 時を止めて
愛しさで切る ヴァージンマリー

kimi ni fureru sono tabi
subete kowashitaku naru
kimi de asobu toki wo tomete
itoshisa de kiru virgin mary

Every time I touch you
I want to destroy everything
So I play with you, stopping time
A virgin Mary who cuts with love

奏でる旋律からは
流れる甘く甘く
痛みを 君にぶつけ 紛らわす

kanaderu sen’ritsu kara wa
nagareru amaku amaku
itami wo kimi ni butsuke magirawasu

Sweetly sweetly flowing
Out of this melody is pain
I strike against you to save myself

子猫を掴むように
優しく 撫でて 締めて
孤独を 君に重ね 針を元に

koneko wo tsukamu you ni
yasashiku nadete shimete
kodoku wo kimi ni kasane hari wo moto ni

As if I were catching a kitten
I gently pet and squeeze you tightly
Piling my loneliness upon you, then turn back time

噛み殺す 吐息さえ
荒々しく 散らかして
毒蛾のように 踊らせる
痺れ出す 感覚で

kamikorosu toiki sae
araarashiku chirakashite
dokuga no you ni odoraseru
shibiredasu kan’kaku de

Even the breath I normally keep still
Is violently expelled in disorder
I’m forced to dance like a poison moth
By these numbing sensations

爪を立てなぞる度
狂い壊したくなる
君で遊ぶ 時を止めて
錆び付くナイフ ブラッディマリー

tsume wo tatenazoru tabi
kuruikowashitaku naru
kimi de asobu toki wo tomete
sabitsuku knife bloody mary

Every time I draw my fingernails across your face
I lose my mind, craving destruction
So I play with you, stopping time
A bloody Mary with rusted knives

奏でる旋律からは
流れる甘く甘く
孤独を 君にぶつけ 嘲笑う

kanaderu sen’ritsu kara wa
nagareru amaku amaku
kodoku wo kimi ni butsuke azawarau

Sweetly sweetly flowing
Out of this melody is loneliness
I strike against you, laughing aloud

子猫を掴むように
優しく 撫でて 締めて
痛みを 君にあげる 突き刺して

koneko wo tsukamu you ni
yasashiku nadete shimete
itami wo kimi ni ageru tsukisashite

As if I were catching a kitten
I gently pet and squeeze you tightly
Giving you my pain, thrusting it into you

刻んだ快楽時計
美徳を蜘蛛の糸に
絡めた罪とキスで 混ぜ合わす

kizan’da kairaku tokei
bitoku wo kumo no ito ni
karameta tsumi to kiss de mazeawasu

The clock’s dial marked its pleasure;
I mix the sins of virtues tangled
In spider’s threads, together with a kiss

引き裂く 現実世界
心を縛り付けて
繋がる 君に注ぎ 針を元に…

hikisaku gen’jitsu sekai
kokoro wo shibari tsukete
tsunagaru kimi ni sosogi hari wo moto ni…

Ripping the world of reality apart
My heart tied and bound
I pour over you, one with me, and turn back time…

    Yay! 1 out of 2 Ranko songs done.
    Waiting for Plaza On-Impulse, personally, that’s my favorite song of the album.
