天巡:終わりにしてその始まり // Tenjun: Owari ni shite Sono Hajimari

Sponsored by: SH

[Part I]
[Part II]
[Part III]

This song lent itself to more of a first-person perspective, though there are still a few parts that are explicitly in third person.
I like how each successive prayer becomes less and less prayer-like.

許されない
命がある
そう 世界が存在を拒むなら

yurusarenai
inochi ga aru
sou sekai ga son’zai wo kobamu nara

“Some life —
 — is unforgivable.”
If that be the world’s response to our existence

天の巡に
抗ってでも
生きていこうと誓いながら
二人だけ 在るように

ten’ no meguri ni
aragatte demo
ikiteikou to chikainagara
futari dake aru you ni

We vowed to live on
Even if it meant
Standing against heaven’s fate alone
We would be together

「ある日、リフルは病に倒れる。
 村で孤立していた彼女に手を差し伸べる者は—-」

aru hi, rifle wa yamai ni taoreru.
mura de koritsu shiteita kanojo ni te wo sashinoberu mono wa—-


One day, Rifle grew ill and collapsed.
Shunned by the village, no one would lend her a helping hand.

味方など
何処にも居ない

mikata nado
doko ni mo inai

There was
No one on our side

呪われている
その命の全ては穢れ

norowareteiru
sono inochi no subete wa kegare

For we are cursed
Her life itself as treated as an impurity

医者でさえその命を
護ろうとはしない

isha de sae sono inochi wo
mamorou to wa shinai

Not even a doctor would attempt
To save her life

私独りにできることなんて—-
震える両の手をただ胸で組み合わせて
あなたに乞うばかり

watashi hitori ni dekiru koto nan’te—-
furueru ryou no te wo tada mune de kumiawasete
anata ni kou bakari

“There is nothing I can do on my own,” I said
Clasping my shaking hands in front of my chest
I begged you, O Lord:

天よ聞け
慈悲があるなら
呪いなど知らない
この子の命に
庇護があるようにと

ten’ yo kike
jihi ga aru nara
noroi nado shiranai
kono ko no inochi ni
higo ga aru you ni to

O Heaven, heed my call
If thou hast any mercy
Protect this child
Who did nothing to deserve
The curse put upon her

天よ聞け
信じた全て
あの子の分までさえ
私がどうか背負いますからと

ten’ yo kike
shin’jita subete
ano ko no bun’ made sae
watashi ga douka seoimasu kara to

O Heaven, heed my call
For I have been faithful
Please, let her burdens be mine
For I will bear them for us both

虚空に消える
儚い祈り
それでも今日も脆く少女は健気に

kokuu ni kieru
hakanai inori
soredemo kyou mo moroku shoujo wa kenage ni

My fleeting prayers
Disappear into the void
Yet still she is ever fragile, struggling on

次第に募る
疑念が薄黒く

shidai ni tsunoru
ginen’ ga usuguroku

With each passing moment
A shadow of doubt grew

神というまやかしだけ
それでも変えられない

kami to iu mayakashi dake
soredemo kaerarenai

God is but a fairytale
With Him, still nothing will change

弱弱しくも笑うその顔に
今日も笑いかける
世界が害さぬよう
護ってあげたい

yowayowashiku mo warau sono kao ni
kyou mo waraikakeru
sekai ga gaisanu you
mamotteagetai

I see her weakly smiling face
And smile back at her
I want to protect her
From the world’s harms

天よ聞け
祈りよ届け
吹いて飛ぶような命
それでもけして消させなどしないと

ten’ yo kike
inori yo todoke
fuitetobu you na inochi
soredemo keshite kesase nado shinai to

O Heaven, heed my call
Prayers, may you reach Him
Her life is but a candle in the wind
But still I refuse to let her life be extinguished

天よ聞け
ただ一心に
何のための命が
ここで消える運命になどないと

ten’ yo kike
tada isshin’ ni
nan’ no tame no inochi ga
koko de kieru un’mei ni nado nai to

O Heaven, heed my call
For I pray with all my heart
What reason is there for her life to end!?
I refuse to believe that this should be her fate!

「何の役にも立たない祈り。
 人一人さえ救うことの出来ぬ神–リディアは力なく頭を垂れる」

nan’ no yaku ni mo tatanai inori.
hito hitori sae sukuu kono no dekinu kami — lydia wa chikara naku atama wo tareru


Her prayers did nothing.
“What use is God if He cannot save one single soul?” — exhausted, Lydia hung her head.

「ありがとう、でももういいんだよ。
 ……私はね、最初から生まれてこなければよかったんだよ」

arigatou, demo mou iin’ da yo.
……watashi wa ne, saisho kara umaretekonakereba yokattan’ da yo


Thank you, but you don’t need to do this anymore.
After all, I… I never should have been born in the first place.

「そんなはず……無い。そんなこと、あっていいはずが無い。
 これが全部神の悪戯だなんて。そんなの、絶対認めない」

son’na hazu…… nai. son’na koto, ate ii hazu ga nai.
kore ga zen’bu kami no itazura nan’te. son’na no zettai mitomenai


That’s not true… There’s no way that can be true.
I cannot accept that God would just let this happen — I never will!

「リディア。傍にいてくれて、ありがとう—-」

lydia. soba ni itekurete, arigatou—-


Lydia, thank you… for staying with me.

許されない
命がある
そう 世界が存在を拒むなら

yurusarenai
inochi ga aru
sou sekai ga son’zai wo kobamu nara

“Some life —
 — is unforgivable.”
If that be the world’s response to our existence

私こそが
世界だったなら
この子を許すことができただろうか

watashi koso ga
sekai datta nara
kono ko wo yurusu koto ga dekitan’ darou ka

If only I
Were the world
Would I have been able to forgive her?

天よ聞け
無価値な祈り
唾棄すべき幻想
こんな世界は決して認めないと

ten’ yo kike
mukachi na inori
daki subeki gen’sou
kon’na sekai wa kesshite mitomenai to

O Heaven, heed my call
Prayers are worthless
Nothing but a despicable fantasy
I will never accept a world would allow this!

人よ聞け
無窮の誓い
永久に傍にいるため
この命さえ手放すその刹那

hito yo kike
mukyuu no chikai
towa ni soba ni iru tame
kono inochi sae tebanasu sono setsuna

O Humanity, heed my call
For I made an eternal vow
So that I might be with her forever
The moment I abandoned my own life…

言葉にならぬ
雷鳴にも似た
不可視なる衝撃

kotoba ni naranu
raimei ni mo nita
fukashi naru shougeki

I was hit with a shock
Invisible, and like thunder
But impossible to put to words

声が聞こえる
語りかけるは
「お前こそ そう、相応しい」

koe ga kikoeru
katarikakeru wa
“omae koso sou, fusawashii”

I heard a voice,
Which spoke thus:
“Yes, you — you are most fitting for this role.”

「それは祝福か、あるいは呪いなのか。
 少女から広がり、立ち上りゆく無数の影。
 そしてその影はやがて全てを飲み込み始める。
 —-それこそが、新たなる魔女の誕生の瞬間だった」

sore wa shukufuku ka, arui wa noroi nano ka.
shoujo kara hirogari, tachinoboriyuku musuu no kage.
soshite sono kage wa yagate subete wo nomikomihajimeru.
—-sore koso ga, aratanaru majo no tan’jou no shun’kan’ datta


Was it a blessing, or a curse?
From her extended countless shadows —
Shadows which began to engulf everything around her.
—It was, in that moment, that a new witch was born.
