My Optics

Requested by: Alv

I’m going to go ahead and say I think this song is strange. I mean I get the foundation, but… well Unlucky Morpheus was involved, I feel this often with their songs too.

Notes:
“I never would have met you again” – the verb used implies a very unpleasant meeting. It’s what you’d use in a case like “He met with a very unfortunate accident (and died)”.

ねぇ本当の気持ち ねぇ伝えたいけど
怖がりの 私は 素直に愛せない

nee hon’tou no kimochi nee tsutaetai kedo
kowagari no watashi wa sunao ni aisenai

You know? I really do want to tell you my true feelings
But afraid as I am, I can’t properly express my love

傷つく為の 出逢いならば
とても受け入れられないよ 悲し過ぎるよ

kizutsuku tame no deai naraba
totemo ukeirerarenai yo kanashisugiru yo

If encounters truly only exist to cause pain
Then that’s too much for me to take, it’s just too sad…

心を 今すぐキミに 伝える勇気が欲しい
でもきっとどこまでも付いてゆくだけ 今は

kokoro wo ima sugu kimi ni tsutaeru yuuki ga hoshii
demo kitto doko made mo tsuiteyuku dake ima wa

Right now, I want the courage to express my heart to you
But for now, all I can do is follow you wherever you go…

まだ不器用だけど 繋がってはいるね
キミと争うためだけなら そう 再び出遭うこともなかった…

mada bukiyou dake do tsunagatte wa iru ne
kimi to aragau tame dake nara sou futatabi deau koto mo nakatta…

I may still be awkward but, we are connected
If it were only to fight you, surely I would have never met you again…

心を 今すぐキミに 伝える勇気が欲しい
遅すぎることなんて きっとないよね
心を 伝える術が 見つかることはないけど
キミに降る死の雨を 拭い去りたい すべて My optics

kokoro wo ima sugu kimi ni tsutaeru yuuki ga hoshii
ososugiru koto nan’te kitto nai yo ne
kokoro wo tsutaeru sube ga mitsukaru koto wa nai kedo
kimi ni furu shi no ame wo nuguisaritai subete my optics

Right now, I want the courage to express my heart to you
I don’t think it’s ever to late for anything
I haven’t yet found a way to express my heart to you
But I want to wipe away the rain of death falling on you, all of it – My Optics

心を 今すぐキミに 伝える勇気が欲しい
ただ君の笑顔だけ見つめられたら
心を 伝える術が 見つかることはないけど
キミに降る死の雨を 光に変える すべて My optics

kokoro wo ima sugu kimi ni tsutaeru yuuki ga hoshii
tada kimi no egao dake mitsumeraretara
kokoro wo tsutaeru sube ga mitsukaru koto wa nai kedo
kimi ni furu shi no ame wo hikari ni kaeru subete my optics

Right now, I want the courage to express my heart to you
But for now, if I could just keep looking at your smile…
I haven’t yet found a way to express my heart to you
But I want to turn to light the rain of death falling on you, all of it – My Optics

賢者の極北 // Kenja no Kyokuhoku

I deserve a medal for translating another one of these Kuroiwa Satoshi lyric’d Shibayan songs (previous one being Clockup Flowers) though I’ll admit this one was easier…

I have been sitting on this partially finished translation for like over a month, sorry about that.

Note:
The title may also be translated as “The Philosopher’s Apex” – “Polar North” is being used as a limit, as the highest possible point.

否定した事実さえも受け入れて <時が記憶を溶かしてゆく前に>
偏在の中でどれとなく正解を <神が運命を導いてゆく様に>

hitei shita jijitsu sae mo ukeirete <toki ga kioku wo tokashiteyuku mae ni>
hen’zai no naka de dore to naku seikai wo <kami ga sadame wo michibiiteyuku you ni>

Accepting even those facts I have denied, <before time melts my memories away>
I absentmindedly lift “truth” from an uneven distribution <as a god might guide fate>

繰り返す机上の空論も現状への不信感でも「正解」なんてこれっぽち定まりはしないわ
経験なんて目に見えて制限されてこの世界にいて了見だって狭窄して分厚い殻を破れない

kurikaesu kijou no kuuron’ mo gen’jou e no fushin’kan’ demo
 ”seijou” nan’te koreppochi sadamari wa shinai wa
keiken’ nan’te me ni miete seigen’ sarete kono sekai ni ite
 ryouken’ datte kyousaku shite buatsui kara wo yaburenai

Even if all these impractical theories only represent my disbelief of the status quo,
 there is no “normal” that stays certain or consistent over time
Deciding based on experience is setting yourself into a foolish worldly restriction,
 even with careful consideration you cannot break the thick walls of your narrow views

この知識さえ今揺らぎ続けてるから この知識ならばまだ付いてゆけるかな
殻を破れば何もかも今覆い尽くせるから
この世界すべて今頭の中にある 引きこまれてく

kono chishiki sae ima yuragi tsudzuketeru kara
 kono chishiki naraba mada tsuiteyukeru kana
kara wo yabureba nani mo ka mo ima ooitsukuseru kara
kono sekai subete ima atama no naka ni aru hikikomareteku

Even my current knowledge is still uncertain, swaying,
 so with my current knowledge I should be able to keep seeking
When I break out of this shell I’ll reach out over everything
Everything in this world is in my mind; everything, is being drawn in

喩えられたものたちはすべて形を持ち無限の箱庭で自在に動き出して
見下ろす者の瞳にはすべてが記録され
想像の欠如さえ即座に補完され得るエクリチュールだから深化を続ける
果てない相似形が合同に重なり合うまで
「時の終わり」それが定義だというならいつまでも付いてゆくから

tatoerareta mono tachi wa subete katachi wo mochi
mugen’ no hakoniwa de jizai ni ugokidashite
miorosu mono no hitomi ni wa subete ga kiroku sare
souzou no ketsujo sae sokuza ni hokan’ sareeru écriture dakara shinka wo tsudzukeru
hatenai soujikei ga goudou ni kasanariau made
“toki no owari” sore ga teigi da to iu nara itsumademo tsuiteyuku kara

Everything that has been represented with a model has form,
 in this infinite space inside my mind, can move freely
Everything is recorded in the observer’s eyes
Even the deficiencies in my imagination can be immediately supplemented by literature,
 and so my descent continues –
Until the endless simulations converge into one
If the “end of times” is but a definition, I’ll keep chasing after it forever

規定した模範さえも打ち消して <罪の意識に犯されてゆく前に>
哨戒の中でどこへでも跳躍を <神が自由を保証する様に>

kitei shita mohan’ sae mo uchikeshite <tsumi no ishiki ni okasareteyuku mae ni>
shoukai no naka de doko e demo chouyaku wo <kami ga jiyuu wo hoshou suru you ni>

Negating even established models, <before I am overcome with the consciousness of sin>
I can go wherever I please, even as I await retaliation <as when a god guarantees freedom>

この知識なら今何も拒まないわ この知識ならばまだ付いてゆけるなら
見下ろす者は何もかも今覆い尽くせるから
この世界すべて今心の中にある 触れられるから

kono chishiki nara ima nani mo kobamanai wa
 kono chishiki naraba mada tsuiteyukeru nara
miorosu mono wa nani mo ka mo ima ooitsukuseru kara
kono sekai subete ima kokoro no naka ni aru furerareru kara

With my current knowledge, I will not deny anything
 if with my current knowledge I can still keep seeking
The observer will cover over everything
Everything in this world is in my heart; everything, I can touch

創られたレプリカではもはや収まらない無限の箱庭は内在の”アナザーヘブン”
見下ろす者の愛はすべてに届くでしょう
現世の不満さえ即座に補完され得るエクリチュールだから進化を続ける
果てない理想形が現実に重なり合うまで
「不可能の証明」それが必須だというなら何もかも知り尽くすから

tsukurareta replica de wa mohaya osamaranai
 mugen’ no hakoniwa wa naizai no “another heaven”
miorosu mono no ai wa subete ni todoku deshou
gen’se no fuman’ sae sokuza ni hokan’ sareeru
 écriture dakara shin’ka wo tsudzukeru
hatenai risoukei ga gen’jitsu ni kasanariau made
“fukanou no shoumei” sore ga hissu da to iu nara
 nani mo ka mo shiritsukusu kara

No longer will this be contained in just the replicas that have been created,
 this infinite space inside my mind is already “another heaven”
The love of the observer will surely reach all
Everything I find wrong with the real world is immediately supplemented with literature,
 and so my descent continues –
Until my endless ideals converge wih reality
If there must exist “things that cannot be proven”,
I’ll just know everything there is

Roads without roads, questions without answers, turning the page the next is blank

上白沢慧音の随想 // Kamishirasawa Keine no Zuisou

These sponsored posts are what tend to kick me out of my lulls, so send me more money! Hahaha… ha. No really I just need more caffeine and to read faster so I can kick down all my reading goals and still have time for translating.

今を見つめ続けて
気付いたら取り残されて
何をすればいいのかさえもわからなくて
未来は闇の中に
過去は記憶の中ぼやけ
答えは見つからず独りで立ち尽くす

ima wo mitsumetudzukete
kidzuitara torinokosarete
nani wo sureba ii no ka sae mo wakaranakute
mirai wa yami no naka ni
kako wa kioku no naka boyake
kotae wa mitsukarazu hitoride tachitsukusu

Focusing on the present,
Before I knew it I was left behind
Not knowing what I should do
The future shrouded in darkness
The past blurred in my memories
I cannot find an answer, standing here alone

いつになれば掴めるの?
諦めてた未来を
今のままじゃだめだってわかってるよ
でも確かなものなんて
この手の中何一つない
間違うこと怖いから動き出せない

itsu ni nareba tsukameru no?
akirameteta mirai wo
ima no mama ja dame datte wakatteru yo
demo tashikana mono nante
kono te no naka nani hitotsu nai
machigau koto kowai kara ugokidasenai

When will I be able to grasp hold of
The future I’d given up on?
I know that things can’t stay the way they are now
But still there’s nothing I have
I can say that I’m sure of, and
Afraid of making mistakes I cannot move forward

「あの時こうしていればきっと…」
まだ未練だけが零れてゆくから

“ano toki koushiteireba kitto…”
mada miren’ dake ga koboreteyuku kara

“If I had only done that back then…”
All I have are these overflowing regrets

夜空の月を見上げ
思い出す苦い記憶を
書き換えられたなら
幸せになれるかな
躊躇う想いにきっと
間違いはないはずだから
過ちも抱えて歩くよ この先も

yozora no tsuki wo miage
omoidasu nigai kioku wo
kakikaerareta nara
shiawase ni nareru kana
tamerau omoi ni kitto
machigai wa nai hazu dakara
ayamachi mo kakaete aruku yo kono saki mo

Looking up at the moon in the night sky
I remember all of these bitter memories
And wonder, if I were able to
Rewrite them, would I be happy then?
At least I am sure that these
Hesitant emotions I hold are not a mistake
So I can bear my others and keep walking forward

嬉しいこと辛いこと
それは全部差し引きゼロで
楽をすればほら直ぐに後がなくなる

ureshii koto tsurai koto
sore wa zen’bu sashihiki zero de
raku wo sureba hora sugu ni ato ga naku naru

There are times that are happy, times that are sad
But because all of those things balance out to zero
If you run from the hard times, you’ll fall past a point of no return

ありのまま全て受け入れて
進んでゆけるよ
私が消え去るまで

ari no mama subete ukeirete
susun’de yukeru yo
watashi ga kiesaru made

So I will continue to walk forward
Taking in everything just as it is
Until I, myself disappear

明けないこの夜さえ
過ぎ去る時に流されて
薄れてゆくのかな
記憶の片隅から
戻らぬ過去を忘れ
前に進めばぶつかって
同じこと繰り返しながら生きてゆく

akenai kono yoru sae
sugisaru toki ni nagasarete
usurete yuku no kana
kioku no katasumi kara
modoranu kako wo wasure mae ni susumeba butsukatte
onaji koto kurikaeshinagara ikiteyuku

Even during this imperishable night
As I am swept away by time flowing on
I wonder if I too will fade away
As we live by forgetting the memories
Of the past we cannot return to, running into walls
As we move on, ever repeating the same things

どれだけつまづいても
どれだけ涙流しても
終わらない傷みを
否定して陽は昇る
それなら幸せかな
消えない思い出集めて
見えない明日へと送ろう 輝きを

doredake tsumadzuitemo
doredake namida nagashitemo
owaranai itami wo
hitei shite hi wa noboru
sore nara shiawase kana
kienai omoide atsumete
mienai ashita e to okurou kagayaki wo

No matter how many times I fall
No matter how many times I cry
I will deny my unending pain
So that the sun will rise
If I do will I be happy?
Gathering memories that will not disappear
Sending their brilliance toward a tomorrow I cannot see…

完全な魂を作り出すため
彼女は他者を拒絶する

In order to construct a perfect soul,
She rejected all others.

そんな彼女の孤独の哲学は
いつか奇跡を起こすのだろうか

Will someday her lonely philosophy
Call forth a miracle?

~~

追いかける夢にはいつしか
禁忌の匂いはこびり付いて離れず
どこへ向かう 歩んだ道には
模造の景色がただ広がるだけ

oikakeru yume ni wa itsushika
kin’ki no nioi wa kobiritsuite hanarezu
doko e mukau ayun’da michi ni wa
mozou no keshiki ga tada hirogaru dake

At some point the dream I had been chasing after
Could not be separated from the lingering stench of taboo
Where should I turn? Upon this road I walk is naught
But fakes and imitations as far as the eye can see

歪む真実の姿を
独りではまだ掴めずに
誰かが手を差し伸べることなく
偽りだけ口をついて

yugamu shin’jitsu no sugata wo
hitori de wa mada tsukamezu ni
dareka ga te wo sashinoberu koto naku
itsuwari dake kuchi wo tsuite

Still unable to grasp
The distorted truth alone,
Without anyone to lend a hand,
I only spoke in fabricated lies

馴れ合う言葉はいらない
空しく響く
想いを隠せば意味はないから
求める答えは閉ざした心の中に
覗いた深みは何を映すのだろう

nareau kotoba wa iranai
munashiku hibiku
omoi wo kakuseba imi wa nai kara
motomeru kotae wa tozashita kokoro no naka ni
nozoita fukami wa nani wo utsusu no darou

I need not words of companionship
Which ring emptily;
If you mask your emotions they mean nothing
The answer you seek is locked away inside the heart
But what would you see if you looked into its depths?

繰り返した創造の思索が
辿り着いた場所はひとつ

kurikaeshita souzou no shisaku ga
tadoritsuita basho wa hitotsu

For all the times I have pondered creation
I have reached only one conclusion

いつからわかっていたのか?
足りないものは
遥かな過去へと想いを馳せて
それでも掴めぬ魂 見えることなく
独りの世界はいつ終わるのだろう

itsukara wakatteita no ka?
tarinai mono wa
haruka kako e to omoi wo hasete
sore demo tsukamenu tamashii mieru koto naku
hitori no sekai wa itsu owaru no darou

Since when have I known
What I was lacking?
Tracing my thoughts far into the past
Still unable to grasp, even glimpse that soul
When will this lonely world of mine end?

全ては異なる無数の意志を宿して
世界を広げる 永久に
「この身は器に過ぎない」
真理を抱き 追い着く心の形へ

subete wa kotonaru musuu no ishi wo yadoshite
sekai wo hirogeru eikyuu ni
“kono mi wa utsuwa ni suginai”
shin’ri wo idaki oitsuku kokoro no katachi e

Everything houses a countless number of distinct wills
Expanding the world for all eternity
“I am nothing but a vessel”
Embracing this truth I finally grasp the nature of the heart

いつか孤独に芽生えた私の哲学こそが
望んだ魂さえ作り出すのだろう
独りの世界から

itsuka kodoku ni mebaeta watashi no tetsugaku koso ga
nozonda tamashii sae tsukuridasu no darou
hitori no sekai kara

Surely this philosophy of mine that blossomed in loneliness
Will one day craft even that soul I’ve so longed for
Out of this solitary world

魔女達の舞踏会 // Majotachi no Butoukai

Requested by: Yukari Hearn

Thank you everyone for your birthday wishes! Yes I am now 24, and am still carded every time. At least people are starting to ask me where I go to college instead of what high school I go to…

So you’ve all watched Little Witch Academia right?

I’m hoping to get to a few requests this week, but I won’t make any promises. ^^;

Notes:
folia is an early musical theme/chord progression, Witches’ Ball seems to use part of it (but I’m no expert).

この空で光放ち踊り続けて 闇を照らすは魔女の舞曲
触れる熱さに身を焼かれながらも 強く可憐に舞えばいい

kono sora de hikari hanachi odoritsudzukete yami wo terasu wa majo no dance
fureru atsusa ni mi wo yakarenagara mo tsuyoku karen’ ni maeba ii

That which from the sky illuminates the darkness, a
 continuous dance of radiating light, that is a witches’ dance
Even as your body burns in the heat of it,
 all you must do is dance with loveliness and intensity

愚か者には見えぬもの この大いなる秘儀の生む結晶 そう

orokamono ni wa mienu mono kono ooinaru higi no umu kesshou sou

Those that are ignorant cannot see the crystal given form by this great ritual – Yes,

闇の中一つ掲げて 照らし出せば七色の光が輝き
<知識の影に隠した冷たい刃が妖しく輝き>

yami no naka hitotsu kakagete terashidaseba nanairo no hikari ga kagayaki
<chishiki no kage ni kakushita tsumetai yaiba ga ayashiku kagayaki>

Lift one up from the middle of darkness into the light and seven colors will sparkle
<A cold blade hidden in the shadows of knowledge glimmers bewitchingly>

また賭ける誇りを美しさに変えて 火花散らすは瞬間のフォリア
狙えまやかし吹き飛ばしてここに 実像打ち抜く切り札で

mata kakeru hokori wo utsukushisa ni kaete hibana chirasu wa shun’kan’ no folia
nerae mayakashi fukitobashite koko ni jitsuzou uchinuku card de

That which again takes gambled pride turning it into
 beauty in a shower of sparks, that is the folia of an instant
Take aim and blow away deception, break through
 the true image, with a trick card hidden up your sleeve

無数に繰り返す波をかわし

musuu ni kurikaesu nami wo kawashi

Parrying an endless onslaught of waves,

そして追い詰める まるで操り人形の様に

soshite oitsumeru maru de ayatsurinin’gyou no you ni

Driving the opponent into a corner, she’s just like a marionette…

心乱されず決して熱くなることはしない
<出せる力を全て見せはしない>

kokoro midasarezu kesshite atsuku naru koto wa shinai
<daseru chikara wo subete mise wa shinai>

I will not let my heart be disturbed, I will not let anger control me
<I will not show you the utmost of my power>

光通う道筋その眼に焼きつけて 心過ぎるは風のメヌエット
たとえ防げず打ちひしがれようと 空へ再び舞えばいい

hikari kayou michisuji sono me ni yakitsukete kokoro yogiru wa kaze no minuet
tatoe fusegezu uchihishigareyou to sora e futatabi maeba ii

That which crosses your heart as you focus on the paths
 of lights traveling back and forth, that is a minuet of the wind
Even if you cannot defend yourself, if you are about
 to be crushed, all you must do is take to the sky again and dance

そう いくつかの時を越え手にしたもの
<嗚呼 争いでこの力手に入れた>
もういくつかの魔法なら覚えられるだろう
<嗚呼 どれぐらいこの先へ進めるの>

sou ikutsu ka no toki wo koe te ni shita mono
<aa arasoi de kono chikara te ni ireta>
mou ikutsu ka no mahou nara oboerareru darou
<aa doregurai no saki e susumeru no>

Yes, though it took a long time I have grasped it,
<Ah, I have obtained this power through conflict>
Now I hould be able to learn several kinds of magic…
<Ah, I wonder how much further I can go?>

星を描く魔法 夜を切り裂き
光煌く嵐 闇を彼方へ

hoshi wo egaku mahou yoru wo kirisaki
hikari kirameku arashi yami wo kanata e

Magic manifested in many stars rends the night,
A storm sarkling with light sends darkness far away

独りでも進める確信があるから
今もこうして張り合ってゆける

hitori de susumeru kakushin’ ga aru kara
ima mo koushite hariatteyukeru

Since I am confident I can advance alone
I can still compete with you like this

<弱い自分過去へと捨てて 強い者へ挑んでゆけば
 明日へ続く道ならそこに拓けてく>

yowai jibun’ kako e to sutete tsuyoi mono e idon’deyukeba
ashita e tsudzuku michi nara sono ki hiraketeku

<If I throw my weak self away into the past and challenge myself to be strong,>
<My road leading unto tomorrow is one I’ll pave myself!>

闇を誰が自分の色に染めるのだろう 果ての見えない空のワルツ
踊れ消えない光撒き散らして 誰も止める者はない

yami wo dare ga jibun’ no iro ni someru no darou hate no mienai sora no waltz
odore kienai hikari makichirashite dare mo tomeru mono wa nai

Who will paint the darkness their own color? This sky waltz has no end in sight
Dance, spread your inextinguishable light! There is no one who can stop us!

今光交わり新たな色を生む 知らぬ閃き放ち
また鎬削って空を奪い合って 過ぎる時もわからない
嗚呼 夢の輪舞曲は続いて

ima hikari majiwari arata na iro wo umu shiranu hirameki hanachi
mata shinogi kezutte sora wo ubaiatte sugiru toki mo wakaranai
aa yume no rondo wa tsudzuite

Now our lights mix to form a new color releasing a flash I have never before seen
I hone myself again as we compete for the sky, neither knowing how much time has passed
Ah, this dream rondo goes ever on…
