Dark Night Memories

Sponsored by: ?

C82, coming up on 6 years ago.

This song is a little puzzling, not just because of the wording, but depending on whether you think the memories are of Rumia becoming Rumia or memories of those being eaten by her or memories of her eating people, which she seems to be both aware and unaware of, and ambivalent.

That said, the metaphor/imagery of memories beckoning to someone from their container you’ve presumably crushed is pretty cool.

I’ll just think about Rumia munching on brains because that’s best.

I am taking requests/commissions on a case-by-case basis only. While I occasionally skim the comments, the best way to get a hold of me is to send me an e-mail; I will try to get back to you within a few days. You can find my e-mail on the “About” page.

流れるようにこの身は空を泳いで
何もいらない 意味など無くても良いの

nagareru you ni kono mi wa sora wo oyoide
nani mo iranai imi nado nakutemo ii no

I swim through the sky as if it were a flowing stream
I want for nothing — I don’t care if life has any meaning

迷える甘い魂さえ熱くなれない
泡のように儚く霞んで眠りたい

mayoeru amai tamashii sae atsuku narenai
awa no you ni hakanaku kasun’de nemuritai

Not even sweet wandering spirits kindle my soul
I wish to fade out into slumber, like foam on the water

誰も見ないで私の事を月に隠れ
震えながら立ちすくんだこの身体
闇を纏って泣いているのは朽ちた記憶
塗りつぶした箱の中でまだ手招きしている

dare mo minaide watashi no koto wo tsuki ni kakure
furuenagara tachisukun’da kono karada
yami wo matotte naiteiru no wa kuchita kioku
nuritsubushita hako no naka de mada temaneki shiteiru

Don’t look at me! May I be hidden in the moon’s light
But for trembling, my body’s frozen stiff
Clocked in darkness, my rot ridden memories cry
Beckoning to me still, from within their crushed container

好奇心など持てば もう戻れないの
真っ暗闇で呼吸も出来なくなるわ

koukishin’ nado moteba mou modorenai no
makkurayami de kokyuu mo dekinaku naru wa

If you have any curiosity there’s no hope left for you
In the pitch black darkness you’ll be unable to breathe

ざわめく胸の奥の声に耳を塞いで
泡のように儚く霞んで眠りたい

zawameku mune no oku no koe ni mimi wo fusaide
awa no you ni hakanaku kasun’de nemuritai

Trying to ignore the restless voices deep in my chest
I wish to fade out into slumber, like foam on the water

作られていた殻の世界は月に隠れ
頭の中駆け巡って動けない
闇を纏って泣いているのは朽ちた記憶
塗りつぶした箱の中でまだ手招きしている

tsukurareteita kara no sekai wa tsuki ni kakure
atama no naka kakemegutte ugokenai
yami wo matotte naiteiru no wa kuchita kioku
nuritsubushita hako no naka de mata temaneki shiteiru

May this hollow creation of a world hide in the moon’s light
I’m frozen as thoughts race through my mind
Cloaked in darkness, my rot ridden memories cry
Beckoning to me still, from within their crushed container

誰も見ないで誰も来ないで一人で良い
震えながら立ちすくんだこの身体
作られていた殻の世界は月に隠れ
頭の中駆け巡って動けない
闇を纏って泣いているのは朽ちた記憶
塗りつぶした箱の中でまだ手招きしている

dare mo minaide dare mo konaide hitori de ii
furuenagara tachisukun’da kono karada
tsukurareteita kara no sekai wa tsuki ni kakure
atama no naka kakemegutte ugokenai
yami wo matotte naiteiru no wa kuchita kioku
nuritsubushita hako no naka de mata temaneki shiteiru

Don’t look at me! Leave me be! I want to be alone!
But for trembling, my body’s frozen stiff
May this hollow creation of a world hide in the moon’s light
I’m frozen as thoughts race through my mind
Cloaked in darkness, my rot ridden memories cry
Beckoning to me still, from within their crushed container
