Pain~ Wing

Artist:  Art Cube
Lyrics:  Z
Album: 砂の華
Translator: Obscured Moon

The pain will be a wing
Wrapped around my neck
The pain will be a wing
The miracles link Lai lai lai

The pain will be a wing
Wrapped around a dream
The pain will be a wing
The miracles link Lai

A flower held aloft by shadow

Hold me so that my spread wings will not disappear
Reflected, my downcast eyes are transparent
Singing only on the night of the rusty moon
While we sway with each other
Forgotten, The pain, in the droplets that danced

Within the melted landscape

Hold me so that my dancing wings will not disappear
Reflected, my downcast eyes are transparent
Singing only on the night of the rusty moon
While we sway with each other
Forgotten, The pain, in the droplets that danced
While I tremble,  The pain
Bitten
The pain will be a wing

You’re Here

Artist:  Art Cube
Lyrics:  Z
Album: 失楽蝶
Translator: Obscured Moon

Only you have wandered this whole time, while repeating the dream…

Your rain pours incessantly in the midst of the night, I hear a cry of loneliness
We, too close to the sky, flow until we are within a dream

Why am I the only one being carried?
The light of the moon has changed to darkness
Poured, my love remains fallen
Simply, countless emotions are reflected around me

Now, looking only at you, I touched the sky, even the warmth
Let me feel you’re here, the surging isolation
Even your voice is visible from the distance, eternally ringing out in lost tears

Vividly falling, I know the kindness that can stop the countless winds
The grief that I looked at too much from far away slips into a dream, flowing

Why am I the only one being carried?
The light of the stars has changed to darkness
Poured, my love remains distorted
I should just fail, countless emotions are reflected around me

Now, looking only at you
Let me feel you’re here, this still-warm isolation is
Even your voice is visible from the distance, eternally ringing out in lost tears

In retrospect, I couldn’t see anything and drowned
I can no longer return, why are you praying here?
Before I realized it, it was hidden, the view of your colors
Embraced by the slow wind, looking up at the sky

Now, looking only at you…

I do not understand anyone anymore
I only love you, in the end, softly, just a little
Now, you are the only one who makes me feel…

Only you have wandered this whole time,
While the dream is being repeated…

Blue Heaven

Artist:  Art Cube
Lyrics:  Z
Album: 失楽蝶
Translator: Obscured Moon

Blue Heaven  Swimming inside of this wind
If we don’t have any prayers, let’s open our eyes
Blue Heaven  I find only you
The light that filters through the trees dissolves

Your whispers of love are lost, the thing I am waiting for is affected
The darkness of Eden
The screaming continues in the faint night, walking with a blindfold
Where is this place?

Just a little more is fine, just joining with you is fine
Joining madness into that embrace is fine
I reach out toward heaven, even time is killed
Just teach me love

Blue Heaven  Swimming inside of this wind
If we don’t have any prayers, let’s open our eyes
Blue Heaven  I find only you
The light that filters through the trees dissolves

This monster who holds it all close, called “me”
My desired Eden
Walking as I fumble with my drowned wishes
Where is this place?

Just a little more is fine, just being near to you is fine
Just looking into the trembling sky is fine
I reach out toward heaven, even time is killed
Just teach me love

Blue Heaven  I wander within the clouds
If our prayers have crumbled, let’s open our eyes
Blue Heaven Within a forbidden dream
The fallen lights dissolve

Just a little more is fine, just being near to you is fine
Just looking into the trembling sky is fine
I reach out toward heaven, even time is killed
Just teach me love

Blue Heaven  Swimming inside of this wind
If we don’t have any prayers, let’s open our eyes

Blue Heaven  I find only you
The light that filters through the trees dissolves

Blue Heaven  I wander within the clouds
If our prayers have crumbled, let’s open our eyes

Blue Heaven  Within a forbidden dream
The fallen lights dissolve

虹化鏡 (Kougekyou)

“Rainbowed Mirror”

Artist:  Art Cube
Lyrics:  Z
Album: 螺旋月
Translator: Obscured Moon

Heaven got dizzy

A gray light is noisily entangled
I stare as you begin to dance, in the pathway of the dream
Towards the trembling heavens

Scattered infinite thoughts
Even words will be descended upon, crushed, and eventually disappear
Holding my breath, manipulating my heartbeats
I closed my eyes and imagined paradise
Being able to climb to heaven

Heaven got dizzy

The rainbow’s scent flies about
Now engulfed in the mirror
The whereabouts of distant tears
Are also reflected in the mirror now
I softly cried
Rainbowed Mirror

Heaven got dizzy

The moon surrounded by a rainbow
Engulfs even the night
And the footsteps of the tears that I can hear
Have now been stolen away by the mirror

The rainbow’s scent flies about
Now engulfed in the mirror
The whereabouts of distant tears
Are also reflected in the mirror now
In the sweet shade
I softly cried
Rainbowed Mirror

失楽蝶 (Shitsurakuchou)

“Butterfly of Lost Happiness”

Artist:  Art Cube
Lyrics:  Z
Album: 失楽蝶
Translator: Obscured Moon

The black tears running down the moon
The bloody sun floating in a cage
I cannot see my destiny
I don’t even wish for my destiny
If you’re just misleading me, then any moment now You may kill me

Black tears searched for sleep
The golden sun floating in a cage
Do not disturb me
There is only disturbances
If you’re just misleading me, then any moment now You may kill me

Even the prospect of my next crime of grief touching bare skin
You lock up the meaning of gray and you float…

I danced while waiting for the butterfly of lost happiness
Until this night withers away
Butterfly of lost happiness, I’ve even lost my control, I’ll get rid of this waste until you love me

Black tears searched for sleep
The golden sun floating in a cage
Do not disturb me
There is only disturbances
If you’re just misleading me, then any moment now You may kill me

Even the grief of the next bee to sting my skin’s joy
Imprisoned by my gloomy feelings, I am floating…

Butterfly of lost happiness, I woke up disheveled
Until this sky withers away
Butterfly of lost happiness, only your dance can move me
Even though I am making you flap your wings

I, who slipped off of your back
Is it enough for me to slowly tighten you?
It is like we are so skillfully intertwined
Is it enough if darkness and light decorate each other this way?

Hey, cast a spell, just for me
While I break, I’ll embrace my dreams and doubts

I danced while waiting for the butterfly of lost happiness
Until this night withers away
Butterfly of lost happiness, I’ve even lost my control, I’ll get rid of this waste until you love me

Butterfly of lost happiness, I woke up disheveled
Until this sky withers away
Butterfly of lost happiness, only your dance can move me
Even though I am making you flap your wings

砂の華 (Suna no Hana)

“Sand Flowers”

Artist:  Art Cube
Lyrics:  Z
Album: 砂の華
Translator: Obscured Moon

An imprint of midday floating in this light-blue night
The repeated voice embraces only the wreckage

Thus, I want to let the unending tenderness die out
This warmth, dyed scarlet, becomes vivid

I have been invited to dream,  I offer you all of my unending thoughts
Sand flowers dance in the wind, they pour down at your sides, so soft

Far away, a prayer of dripping feathers
Submerge your body, remaining shrouded, a breath is born

The clouds, colored like beloved tears,  begin to flow and wander about
Until the rainbow disappears, I will ease only your tears

Melted together on top of each other, I offer you all of my unending thoughts
Sand flowers dance turbulently, falling at your sides

The clouds, colored like beloved tears,  begin to flow and wander about
Until the rainbow disappears, I will ease only your tears
I have been invited to dream,  I offer you all of my unending thoughts
Sand flowers dance in the wind, they pour down at your sides, so soft
Melted together on top of each other, I offer you all of my unending thoughts
Sand flowers dance turbulently, falling at your sides
