「あぁ、またこの気持ち 嫌になるわ」
ぐるぐると廻る スピード上げ

“aa, mata kono kimochi iya ni naru wa”
tameiki ga koboreru
guruguru to mawaru speed age
karawamari kurikaesu

“Ugh, this feeling again? I hate this,”
I say with a sigh.
Faster and faster, I just keep
Running around in circles

止まらない炎が 胸焦がし揺れて
心まで 黒く染めた
Someday, I’ll hate you―

tomaranai honoo ga munekogashi yurete
kokoro made kuroku someta
“anata demo todokanai uragawa ga aru no”
watashi tachi kono mama nara
someday, I’ll hate you-

This endless flame blazes in my heart
Burning my heart black
“I have a dark side you’ll never reach.”
If we keep this up,
Someday, I’ll hate you―

つまらない事に 割く暇など
魔導書にも 載っていない秘め事を

tsumaranai koto ni saku hima nado
watashi ni wa nai kedo
nee, oshiete hoshii no
madousho ni mo notteinai himegoto wo

I don’t have the time to mess around
With things like this
So tell me, please
A secret not written in my magic books

泣きたいの? もう分からない
何時だって 光求め夢を見るの
覚めないで と願うのは
Please, tell me “Why?”

kanashii no? ureshii no? kurushii no? setunai?
nakitai no? mou wakaranai
itsu datte hikari motome yume wo miru no
samenaide to negau no wa
Please, tell me “Why?”

Are you sad? Are you happy? Are you in pain? Does it hurt?
Do you want to cry? I just don’t know
Always looking for the light, always dreaming
Why don’t you want to wake up?
Please, tell me… Why?

止まらない炎が 燃え続け
空虚な世界まで 黒く染めた
I wanna love you―

tomaranai honoo ga moetsudzuke
kuukyo na sekai made kuroku someta
“anata demo miserarenai saki ga aru no”
watashi tachi kono mama demo
I wanna love you-

This endless flame blazes in my heart
Burning my empty world black
“I have things I can’t show even you.”
But even if we stay like this,
I wanna love you―

その正しき言葉のもとに // Sono Tadashiki Kotoba no Moto ni

Shikieiki Yamaxanadu (urabe michiru)

Requested indirectly by: Open To See (0P2C)

This song is paired with [Unprivileged Access].

I cut out a few spaces in the first line to make it fit the format of my site.
“Before” in the title is as in “I was brought before the judge”.
Again, almost every line had to be broken in two.

The lyrics are characterized by old language and the phrases are arranged in such a way strengthen the effect of officiality, formality, and statements of facts before actions or opinions. Imagine Shikieiki reading off lines from a paper at a podium adjusting her glasses every now and then before rising in emotion for her hope for the redemption of those indebted with sin so that they may eventually pay back their debts and rise into greater beings.

The basic gist of the song is that “trying to be pure and without sin” is futile. One should not focus on one’s own righteousness but on helping others and doing good deeds so as to make up for the inevitable errors and sins that will creep up and overcome them. Rather than only avoiding and or denying your negatives, acknowledge your negatives, but make your positives overwhelm your negatives.

A point to address in the (一) section is that rather than it is a sin to pretend to be more righteous than one is, it is more that one having to lie to themselves about their own righteousness is an indicator of their sin. Rather than trying to make up for problems, denying that those problems even exist is a much bigger problem.

Basically what I’m trying to say is that this is an awful translation. Otherwise I wouldn’t feel the need to say anything. Take a couple of years to learn Japanese and then classical Japanese and you’ll understand.

凡そ生あるもの皆その死を以てここへと至る その命が尽きるまで重ねた幾多の罪をこの身が断ず

oyoso shou aru mono min’na sono shi wo motte koko e to itaru
 sono inochi ga tsukiru made kasaneta ikuta no tsumi wo kono mi ga dan’zu

All that are of the living arrive here upon their deaths, where dutifully
 I, upon the numerous sins accumulated over the course of their lives, cast judgment

その罪は 裁かれること無くしては けして赦されはせず 斯くしてこれをいま裁かん

sono tsumi wa sabakareru koto naku shite wa keshite
 yurusare wa sezu kakushite kore wo ima sabakan’

For those sins to go without judgment, would be unforgivable
 in the utmost degree, therefore I will judge them now

終ぞ清く生きれど その身に受けた偽りの災禍に 暴かれしそれが 汝が罪

tsui zo kiyoku ikiredo sono mi ni uketa itsuwari no saika ni
 abakareshi sore ga nan’ji ga tsumi

While you may have lived your life purely to its very end, revealed
 in the web of calamitous lies you took upon yourself is your sin

生き 然れども 死に 然れども

iki shikaredomo shini shikaredomo

While you have lived, and while you have died

終わること無く 新たにまた 罪を重ねて生きるものとなれ

owaru koto naku arata ni mata tsumi wo kasanete ikiru mono to nare

I command this not to be the end, but for you
 to live yet again, accumulating ever more sin in your life



sono kokoro no naka sae hitoshiku sabakareru koto
 keshite manukareenu to shireba subete wa yasukarezu
ono ga ikita akashi wo motte gou to kaisu ni
 ono ga ikiru raise wo motte zen’kou to kai se yo

When you realize that even from your very heart you cannot
 escape the same judgment, in nothing will you find reprieve
While you may only remember this past life for your karmic debts
 May your subsequent lives instead be represented by righteous acts



kedashi sore wa

What you shall face is


mujin’ no kouya wo hitori ayumu ga gotoki mono

As if you were walking alone in an endless wasteland


michinaki kouya wo hitori sagasu ga gotoki mono

As if you were searching alone in a pathless wasteland


mugen’ no kouya wo hitori ikiru ga gotoki mono

As if you were living alone in an infinite wasteland


kedashi sore wo tsumi to yobu

For that is what we call sin


ikiru kagiri kasaneru sore wa keshite sakerarenu koto nareba
 oyoso hito no mi ni tsumi naki mono wa orazu
omou ni saredo hito wa tsumi no arika wo tada tou koto nomi ni
 obienagara ikurubeki mono ni arazu

As for as long as one lives the accumulation of sin is unavoidable
 there is no one who is without sin
Therefore, I find fault in that while this is true, humanity would live
 in fear of simply having their sins addressed


de areba, sono michi wo miushinawazu, mugen’ ni madoi sezu,
 mujin’ ni ashi wo fume, tada yoku iki yo

Instead, I would have you not lose sight of your way, not hestiate ad infinitum
 but take step after step without end, and live righteously



tamerawazu mayou koto naku sono michi wo ayumisusume yo
 yokoshima naru mono ni wa hizamazuku koto naku
onore no sukui taru wa onore ni yoru hoka narazu to
 shitte wa ikiru raise no michishirube to se yo

Without hesitation nor giving into temptation may you walk your path
 and may you not kneel before any of all things that are evil
When you realize that your salvation depends on you and you alone
 may you set up these commandments as guideposts in your subsequent lives


tatoi tsumi wo kasaneru sadame mo ikiru yori raise ni hoka wa nashi
 yue ni sono inochi no kagiri wo tsukushi zen’ to se yo

While your subsequent lives may hold no more in store than a fate to accumulate more sin
 All the more must you strive to use your life to do as much good as possible


kedashi kore wo sabaki to yobu

For this is what we call judgment

Those kinds of impulsive thoughts are unavoidable.

If you cling to lies, you can never be laid to rest.
 Admit what all I say is only you, yourself.

sashidasareta sono te wo, sotto nigitte
daijoubu da to waraikakeru.

When I took that hand outstretched to me, softly
I smiled saying, “I’m alright.”


soushitara doushite ka, dokoka itazura mitai ni
waraikaeshitekureru no.

When I did, for some reason, like we were fellow conspirators
She smiled back at me.

そんな、仕草とか 笑顔とか

son’na shigusa toka egao toka
watashi yori kodomo mitai de.

Whether it be her actions, or her smile,
She seemed even more like a child than me.


dakeredo, kamisama mitai ni kagayaiteita!

But the way she shined, she was just like a goddess!


nani mo osorenaide
me mo sorasanaide

Without being afraid of anything
Without ever averting her eyes


aruiteiku koto ga dekiru no wa, sono tsuyosa no okage?

Is the reason she can walk like that because of her strength?


sou naretara ii na,,, tte.
kitto nareru kara! tte.

“I wish I could be like that…”
“Oh, I’m sure you can!”


sono kotoba ga, fushigi na kurai, kono kokoro ni toketeiku.

Those words, strangely somehow, melted right into my heart.


-watashi ni, yuuki wo, kureta hito.

-She was the one, who gave me courage.


tatoeba, omoi wo tsutaetai hito ga ita to shite,
nani mo dekizu ni iru toki toka.

Times when there’s someone I want to confess to,
But can’t do anything about it…


jibun’ no yowasa wo jibun’ de wa dou ni mo dekinakute,
jibun’ wo semetaku naru toki toka

Times when I can’t do anything about my own weakness,
And just want to blame myself…

そんな、強さとか 勇気とか

son’na, tsuyosa toka yuuki toka
sukoshi dake areba ii no ni.

Whether it be strength, or courage
I wish I had even just a little bit of that.


sore demo, kamisama mitai na hito mo iru nara.

But if there really are people out there, like goddesses…


nani mo osorenaide
me mo sorasanaide

Without being afraid of anything
Without ever averting my eyes


aruiteiku koto ga dekiru you, kitto watashi datte.

Being able to one day walk like that, I’m sure even I…


“hito ga yowaku aredomo, omoi wo tsuyoku moteba”

“People may be weak, but if you just hold on tightly to your emotions…”


sono kotoba wo, kiseki ni shite, sotto dakishimeteiru.

Those words, like some sort of miracle, embrace me softly,


ashita ga mata kuru.
ippo, mae ni susumu.

Tomorrow will still come,
Then, I’ll take another step forward.


subete ga umaku iku wake ja nai ne.

It’s not like everything will go the way I want.


sore demo, watashi ni.
ashita ga, aru you ni.

But so that there will always be
A tomorrow waiting for me,


itsuka wa anata no you ni.

One day, if I could be like you,


nani mo osorenaide
me mo sorasanaide

Without being afraid of anything
Without ever averting my eyes


aruiteiku anata no senaka wo, oikaketeikitai.

I want to chase after you as you keep walking forward.


yuruganai kotoba wo
kawaranai omoi wo

Those unwavering words,
Those unchanging emotions,


tatoe ima wa mada chiisakutemo, kitto tsuyoku nareru to.

That even though now I am small, I can surely become strong,


-watashi ni, yuuki wo, kureta “hito”.

She was the goddess, who gave me courage.

“Gazing at what is definitively out of our reach,” is roughly equivalent to “it wouldn’t be the sky if it weren’t out of our reach” – but perhaps closer to “how we perceive the sky would be completely different if it weren’t out of our reach”.

ashioto ga kikoeta.
hon’no kaze no itazura ka to ibukashiminagara.

I heard footsteps.
But while thinking that it must be a trick of the wind,


sono hibiki ni omou.
sono ashioto wa, arui wa moshi ya, to.

Listening, I thought,
“What if those footsteps are… could it be?”


mada hon’no chiisa na.
obotsukanai ayumi ni, sore wa suginaikeredo.

The sound was still soft, as if it was
From nothing more than steps unsteady and uncertain, but


tsune ni ashi wo tomezu.
kitto, doko made mo aruiteiku no darou.

Those steps never paused.
Surely they’ll keep walking forever.


sono uchi zutto tooku ni, itteshimau no ka to.
soushite, kono te no todokanu tokoro e…?

One day, perhaps, they’ll take themselves far away,
So far, they’ll be too far for me to reach them…


son’na kan’shouteki na omoi ga yogiru no wa,
kono sora no sei nano ka?

I wonder, is it the fault of this sky that makes me think
Such sentimental thoughts?


hoshizora wo miagete, na mo naki hoshitachi wo.
te ga todokanu ga yue no fuukei wo nozomeba.

Looking up at the sky, filled with nameless unknown stars,
Gazing at what is definitively out of our reach,


hoshitachi ni kamaketa, kanojo no kimochi ga.
sukoshi wa wakaru ki ga shitekuru.

I start feel as if I can understand, just a little
Her obsession with the stars.


-kon’na ni mo, hoshi ga kirei nara.

-After all, look how beautiful they are.


ashioto ga kikoeta.
sore wa, kitto ki no se nado de wa nai, naze tte.

I heard footsteps.
And this time, I was sure I wasn’t just imagining things, for


sono hibiki ni omou.
soko kara kan’jiru, tashika na ketsui wo.

Listening, I thought,
In them I can feel a solid determination.


sono uchi zutto to tooku to, omotteita sono hi wa.
sore hodo saki no koto demo nai no kamo, to.

That “one day” I had thought of before,
Might really not be that far away…


son’na omoi wo mune ni, miageta sono saki ni,
hitosuji no hikari wo miru.

And as I looked up at the sky with those thoughts in my heart
I saw a single stream of brilliant light.


hoshizora wo mezashite. na mo naki hoshitachi wo
megakete wa massugu ni ton’deiku sono sugata.

A figure, shooting for the stars, those nameless stars,
Flying straight at them with determined aim,


hoshitachi no hitotsu ni, narou to suru you ni.
ika ni mo sore wa kanojorashiku.

As if she was trying to become one of those very stars.
I’m not sure anything could suit her more.


tooku, tooku, sara ni, takaku e.
takaku, takaku, soshite, tooku e.

Far, further and onto greater heights…
High, higher and far into the distance…


gen’kai wo shirazu ni.

Knowing no limits.


yume wo mata hitotsu, sono te ni shite,
yume wo mata hitotsu, kanaeteiku.

Taking yet another dream into her hands,
Taking yet another dream and making it come true.


ittai, doko made.

Just how far will she go?


hoshizora no naka e to. na mo naki hoshitachi e to.
wakime mo furazu ni. takaku takaku nobotteyuku.

Into the starry sky, among those nameless stars,
Higher and higher she climbs without a stray glance.


hoshitachi no subete wo sa mo kudakan’bakari ni
are koso wa, chijou no nagareboshi.

As if she were going to shatter every star in the sky,
She was truly, a terrestrial shooting star.


hoshizora wo miagete, na mo naki hoshitachi no.
sono musuu no hikari no naka, san’zen’ to kagayaku.

Looking up at the sky, filled with nameless unknown stars,
Shining ever so brilliantly among those countless lights,


hoshi no na wa, star breaker. soushite mata ippo,
kanojo wa tooku e aruiteiku no ka.

The star whose name is “Marisa, the Star Breaker” – will she now
Take yet another step, even farther into the distance?
