When everything turns to nothing, I'll still be there for you.

So I had already finished this a while ago, however felt like I should revise it a couple of times before posting. For some reason or other it took a while before that happened, but better late than never I guess.

Kanji are from the booklet, romaji and translation is done by me. There is a sung part that is being repeated without that being in the printed lyrics, I added them in the romaji and translation as [brackets] however. Some parts took a little effort to make out while listening, heh, but the romaji should be correct that way. Notes are as usual at the end of the post.

Please don't repost without linking back to this post, thank you~ ♪


WINE
独裁 カルト が「真実」を謳う
反逆に歓喜の声
握りしめた片道切符は従順の証明書

無差別レイプは権益繁栄
道化師と成る
利己心と本能の戯れ

カリソメの壇上に万歳 -強制ノ敬礼-
闇が刈る 背徳の心情 -口蓋二銃声-
絶壁の羨望を懇願 -残骸ハ退廃-
神聖な洗脳で救済 -最高ノ晩餐会-

また糸が切れて
野原に咲く永遠が消えない様に 抱きしめた
もう癒えない 傷の中で

捏造が正義と成る頃 銃口が開く
プロパガンダが正当化される
参列争儀の子守唄

毎時 4000が奪い去られる度
ほら血で血を洗い合うなら
狂言者は誰?
口紡弱者と軋轢が… 

また糸が切れて
野原に咲く永遠が消えない様に 抱きしめた
もう癒えない 傷 と 涙 を

ただ一つ
犠牲の涙さえ 溶け出して
太陽がまた嗤うから
もう癒えない
安息の大地を染めゆく

もう変えれない
張り裂けそうなこの心は
今 また紅く染まる

WINE
The despotism cult sings "truth"
Voices that delight in treason
The tightly grasped one way tickets are certificates of obedience

Indiscriminate rape is the prospering of their interests
They become clowns
Egoism and instinctive caprices

A banzai on a temporary altar  ーan enforced saluteー [1]
Darkness reaps immoral emotions ーgunshots by palatesー
Entreat to precipical envy  ーwreckage is decadenceー [2]
Relief through sacred brainwashing ーa supreme dinner partyー

Again a thread severed
In order so that the eternity blooming on the fields won't vanish I held it tight [3]
Inside of the wounds that won't be healed anymore

The time when falsehood becomes justice the muzzles open
Propaganda is made into justification
A lullaby of participation-dispute-ceremony [4]

Each hour they are being taken away 4000 times
Look, if we wash blood with blood together
Who's the make-believer? [5]
Mouth-spinning weaklings and discord are… [6]

[A banzai on a temporary altar  ーan enforced saluteー [see 1]
Darkness reaps immoral emotions ーgunshots by palatesー
Entreat to precipical envy  ーwreckage is decadenceー [see 2]
Relief through sacred brainwashing ーa supreme dinner partyー]


Again a thread severed
In order so that the eternity blooming on the fields won't vanish I held it tight [see 3]
The wounds and the tears that cannot be healed anymore

Even the tears
Of only one sacrifice start melting them
Because the sun again will laugh [7]
I won't be healed anymore [8]
Going to dye the ground of rest [9]

I can't change it anymore [10]
This heart that seems to burst open
Now it again is dyed crimson


notes
[1] Banzai these days is often used as a sort of "hurray" (mostly in countries other than Japan), however its original meaning is much closer to "long live the emperor"; literally "ten thousand years" - "may he live 10000 years". It is a fairly military term.
[2] He made the word "precipice" into an adjective here, so I did the same. He does not say "abysmal". There's a difference.
[3] Whatever it is he's holding is not totally specified. It could be the eternity, it could also be anything else, like a different "it", or even a "you".
[4] Pun. The 争儀/sougi here is made up. If he'd written 争議, it simply would have meant "dispute/quarrel". There is another word spoken sougi which is written with the kanji he chose to use - 葬儀. It means "funeral service". So basically, he disassembled both words and put them back together in a different way. Now, picking the kanji for the word he used apart, his word becomes dispute+matter/ceremony. Because of the ceremonial feel of "funeral service" I went with ceremony.
[5] Kyougen can be translated as 'make-believe', however this can also be understood as an actor of kyougen, I shall refer to wikipedia's article on the matter.
[6] "Spin", as in the craft of spinning.
[7] Note that it is a sneering laughter.
[8] It does not have to be him who cannot be healed anymore. These lines could also be read in a way that whatever cannot be healed stays unspecific, or, there also is the possibility of it being the ground of rest.
[9] Rest/repose.
[10] "Change it", or simply "change".

Lyricists at their raging bests, I adore that so much. He plays a lot with words in this one, and does things that aren't usually even possible in English, so I hope it's both understandable and portrays what Yuuki wanted to convey. I personally find this to be a lyric masterwork, but that might just be me. Either way, I never had more notes to any lyrics. うむ.

Feel free to comment and object though.

This is hard stuff, definitely. Not easy to understand or interpret. But to me it leaves a certain feeling of very much wrath, and I know this feeling very good, in this state it's hard to utter simple sentences that are easy understandable to anybody.

However, I can 'sense' quite good what Yuuki wants to express.

I agree, it's a masterpiece.
Deep bow to Yuuki, and deep bow to you, must have been terribly hard to translate!!

Writing in a way that isn't easy understandable is the lyricist's choice though.

It wasn't 'easy', but it wasn't a pain in the ass either, like some other songs I've done/tried. Loved translating it. Plus, confession, this was easy pie in comparison to some of Mao's lyrics, hah |D
