Uhm okay, so when I said that 上弦の月 was my starter, that information was slightly ... incorrect. *cough*
I actually did this one first, to get warm. I thought, since most of it was Engrish, there wouldn't be so much to do, so I could easily slip into translating again, but... *laughs* I ended up needing six sentences to explain three of the words he used ... Ah, that is what I love about Saki.

Anyway, excuse me for likely mistakes, here I go~

The kanji lyrics are from the booklet. Romaji and translation are done by me. Things that are written in English in the original are in italics in the translation, and katakana are in CAPs. Notes are to be found at the end of the post.

As usual, do not repost these without credits and link to the original source. [= this post]

I'll enchant you let's die by passing over into Nirvana [2]

Respectful bow becoming one
Respectful bow last, through me [3]

Respectful bow becoming one
Respectful bow last, through me

Respectful bow last, through me

Respectful bow becoming one

Notes
[1] The kanji used for 'song' here somewhat implies that it is a song of eulogy
[2] *takes a deep breath* This is one hell of a huge explanatory note, and I hope I can get my -and hopefully his- point clear.
For the very first - misete yarou sounds like "i'll show you" instead of "i'll enchant you" 8D Additionally, this is written as if he'd do the other person a favor by enchanting them, or putting himself into a position higher than the other.
For the second... okay, these are just two words, but what he says is rather intricate. Metsudo
is a buddhist term, literally meaning overcoming and extinguishing illusion (=everything that concerns this life) and pass over into Nirvana. For ikou he, just as in 零〜ZERO〜, used a kanji you wouldn't expect. It sounds like 'iku' (literally 'go'), however, it means 'to die'. So basically metsudo ikou... well, I'll leave that part of thinking entirely to yourselves :3
[3] The verb 'to last' is meant

嗚呼... This song seemed so inconspicuous, but there Saki got me. *laughs*
And again I hope I didn't butcher too much -,x

... This song has always just made me shiver and left me speechless.
I knew all along what was going on in the lyrics, but when I see them in English in front of me now .....
Amazingness.

Thank you. ♥


I wish I could hear this song live someday D:

Mmmmh... I was left speechless at how much he could possibly fit into the tiny bits of Japanese he put into that song. He, they're amazing.

You're very welcome <3
*cri* yeah............
