紅蓮の弓矢 // Guren no Yumiya (Short OP – 進撃の巨人/Shingeki no Kyojin/”Attack on Titan”)

I usually don’t do half-ops, but this one captured me a bit. I tweeted it earlier, but I figured I might as well post it for now.

[Full / Revised Version HERE]

紅蓮の弓矢
 Guren no Yumiya
 Feuerroter Pfeil und Bogen
 Crimson Arrow / Fire-red Bow and Arrow

踏まれた花の 名前も知らずに
地に落ちた鳥は 風を待ち侘びる
祈ったところで 何も変わらない
今を変えるのは 戦う覚悟だ

fumareta hana no namae mo shirazu ni
chi ni ochita tori wa kaze wo machiwabiru
inotta tokoro de nani mo kawaranai
ima wo kaeru no wa tatakau kakugo da

Not knowing the names of the flowers trampled about it
A bird alights, waiting in vain for the wind to come
Prayer will solve nothing –
Only the will to fight can change the present

尸踏み越えて 進む 意思を 嗤う豚よ
家畜の安寧 虚偽の繁栄
死せる餓狼の自由を!

shikabane fumikoete susumu ishi wo warau buta yo
kachiku no an’nei kyogi no han’ei
shiseru garou no jiyuu wo!

You pigs that laugh at our determination to walk past our comrades’ corpses!
Your “peace” is that of livestock, a false prosperity!
You have all the freedom of a wolf that has died of starvation!

囚われた屈辱は 反撃の嚆矢だ
城壁のその彼方 獲物を屠るイェーガー
迸る衝動に その身を焼きながら
黄昏に陽を穿つ 紅蓮の弓矢

torawareta kutsujoku wa han’geki no koushi da
jouheki no sono kanata emono wo hofuru jäger
hotobashiru shoudou ni sono mi wo yakinagara
tasogare ni hi wo ugatsu guren’ no yumiya

The shame of our confinement is the warning shot to our rebellion!
Far from the walls of the castle a hunter slaughters his prey
As he lets his body burn in his surging impulses
His crimson arrow rips through the twilight sun
