Lost in space

Sponsored by: Narine

I feel like it’s been a very long time since I’ve touched a ZYTOKINE song, and maybe it’s been a long time or maybe it hasn’t been, but I certainly spent a bit too much time coming around for this one.

Other than “Max A/C” (…don’t ask me why) this song reminds me of the last episodes of the “originally aired” Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Forgive the mental (un)health-like state of the pronouns, but I think it’s supposed to be that way. At least it’s pretty clear there’s supposed to be a bit of a jarring effect with the last stanza.

Notes:
“unforgiving moon” <- the moon (appears as if it) sees through the folly of the narrator's dreams, and won't humor her. That's what “unforgiving” is supposed to mean here – apologies for the oversimplification.

弧を描いて ゆらり揺れて 縛られていた夢は さよならを告げて
弧を描いて ゆらり揺れて 待ち望んでいた自由 探しに行こうよ

ko wo egaite yurari yurete shibarareteita yume wa sayonara wo tsugete
ko wo egaite yurari yurete machinozon'deita jiyuu sagashi ni yukou yo

Drawing an arc, drifting this way and that, a dream that was once bound, bids me farewell…
Drawing an arc, drifting this way and that, let’s go searching, for the freedom we’ve waited for…

星空を 見上げていたあの日の 少女の夢の続きへと
繋がっているような夜を 泳ぎ続けている

hoshizora wo miageteita ano hi no shoujo no yume no tsudzuki e to
tsunagatteiru you na yoru wo oyogitsudzuketeiru

We keep swimming through the night, a night that feels as if it might lead
To what lies beyond the dream of a girl who once gazed into the starry sky

瞬いてる星 踊るサテライト 皮肉めいた月 無重力の言葉
音の無い世界 色の無い世界 皮肉めいた月 無重力の涙
(解き放たれる事を 待ち望んでいたはずなのに)左も右も分からない
(解き放たれる心 受け止める大地はどこへと)自分さえ分からない

matataiteiru hoshi odoru satellite hiniku meita tsuki mujuuryoku no kotoba
oto no nai sekai iro no nai sekai hiniku meita tsuki mujuuryoku no namida
(tokihanatareru koto wo machinozon’deita hazu nano ni) hidari mo migi mo wakaranai
(tokihanatareru kokoro uketomeru daichi ha doko e to) jibun sae wakaranai

Twinkling stars and dancing satellites, an unforgiving moon alongside gravity free words
Worlds without sound and without color, an unforgiving moon alongside gravity free tears
(Even though we had both wanted to be released unbound) I cannot tell left from right
(Where is a place I can ground my unbound heart?) I don’t know myself anymore

星空に 憧れていたあの日の 少女の歌の続きへと
繋がっているような夜を 彷徨い続けている

hoshizora ni akogareteita ano hi no shoujo no uta no tsudzuki e to
tsunagatteiru you na yoru wo samayoitsudzuketeiru

We keep wandering through the night, a night that feels as if it might lead
To what lies beyond the song of a girl who once admired the starry sky

君が語った言葉一つ一つが 彷徨い続けて星へと変わる
膝を抱えて眠りにつく夜へと 届きますようにと
手放しの自由 揺らいだ アイデンティティー
落ち着かない心の行く先を 探してもいいし 探さなくてもいいよ
迷っても 君の手は 離さない

kimi ga katatta kotoba hitotsu hitotsu ga samayoitsudzukete hoshi e to kawaru
hiza wo kakaete nemuri ni tsuku yoru e to todokimasu you ni to
tebanashi no jiyuu yuraida identity
ochitsukanai kokoro no yukusaki wo sagashitemo ii shi sagasanakutemo ii yo
mayottemo kimi no te wa hanasanai

Every word you spoke, wanders until it becomes a star so that
It might reach into the nights we hold our knees to fall asleep
With unbounded freedom, identity wavers
Though we could search for a place to rest our uneasy hearts, we don’t need to
For even if we are lost, I will not let go of your hand

眠っている星 歪むサテライト 冷たい太陽 無重力の言葉
果ての無い世界 色の無い世界 冷たい太陽 無重力の涙
(解き放たれる事を 待ち望んでいたはずなのに)上も下も分からない
(解き放たれる心 受け止める大地はどこへと)何もかも分からない

nemutteiru hoshi yugamu satellite tsumetai taiyou mujuuryoku no kotoba
hate no nai sekai iro no nai sekai tsumetai taiyou mujuuryoku no namida
(tokihanatareru koto wo machinozon’deita hazu nano ni) ue mo shita mo wakaranai
(tokihanatareru kokoro uketomeru daichi ha doko e to) nani mo ka mo wakaranai

Sleeping stars and twisting satellites, a cold sun alongside gravity free words
Infinite worlds and those without color, a cold sun alongside gravity free tears
(Even though we had both wanted to be released unbound) I cannot tell up from down
(Where is a place I can ground my unbound heart?) I don’t know anything anymore

星空を 見上げていたあの日の 少女の夢の続きへと
繋がっているような夜を 泳ぎ続けている

hoshizora wo miageteita ano hi no shoujo no yume no tsudzuki e to
tsunagatteiru you na yoru wo oyogitsudzuketeiru

We keep swimming through the night, a night that feels as if it might lead
To what lies beyond the dream of a girl who once gazed into the starry sky

君に語った言葉一つ一つが 行き場を失って星へと変わる
涙も涸れて眠りについた夜に とてもよく似て
誰かの正義で 迷子の アイデンティティー
守るための愛 傷つけながら 何が正義で 何が罪じゃないのか
今すぐに 君の手で 教えてよ

kimi ni katatta kotoba hitotsu hitotsu ga yukiba wo ushinatte hoshi e to kawaru
namida mo karete nemuri ni tsuita yoru ni totemo yoku nite
dare ka no seigi de maigo no identity
mamoru tame no ai kizutsukenagara nani ga seigi de nani ga tsumi ja nai no ka
ima sugu ni kimi no te de oshiete yo

Every word I spoke to you becomes a star, having nowhere else to go
They remind me of the nights I would cry myself to sleep
With someone else’s justice, identity is lost
If love is meant to be protected, what is just when we hurt ourselves? What is not wrong?
Tell me now, with your hands…

弧を描いて ゆらり揺れて ひとり彷徨っている あの日からずっと
弧を描いて ゆらり揺れて 君の声 懐かしい重力にも似て

ko wo egaite yurari yurete hitori samayotteiru ano hi kara zutto
ko wo egaite yurari yurete kimi no koe natsukashii juuryoku ni mo nite

Drawing an arc, drifting this way and that, every since that night I’ve been wandering alone…
Drawing an arc, drifting this way and that, your voice is so nostalgic to me, like gravity…

    • Uwah! I must have accidentally deleted the lines at some point when I was translating – posting – I’ve fixed it!
