Perish

Artist:  Moi Dix Mois
Lyrics: Mana
Album: Nocturnal Opera
Translator: Obscured Moon

The sky smeared indigo, the illusion is closed
We say a sorrowful  farewell to those who are dying

In the darkness of deep fog, the illusion closed
This beautiful wreckage will change completely

your lie  perish  and die
cause of evil in you

Perish

Ahh,  fragments of tears flicker
The darkening moon submerges into the darkness

Ahh, the moon controls this fleeting love
Made to dance in the flickering shadows

The sky is faintly distorted, reality crumbles
We say a smiling farewell to those who betray us

your lie  perish  and die

Ahh, the moon controls this fleeting love
Made to dance in the flickering shadows

Ahh,  fragments of tears flicker
The darkening moon submerges into the darkness

Ahh, the moon guides this fleeting love
Torn up in the stirring shadows

Your figure shines in the darkening moon
Reflected in the darkness

Ahh, the moon controls this fleeting love
Made to dance in the flickering shadows

Pessimiste

Artist:  Moi Dix Mois
Lyrics: Mana
Album: Dix Infernal
Translator: Obscured Moon

Ruthless Pessimiste
Carrying a pathetic shadow

Delusion and reality
Looming despair
The ruler’s Pessimiste
A false deranged play

The dream flaps its wings, flying to oblivion
Even the cruel reality (dream)
A bird that cannot fly toward the other side of the heat
All of the cruel dreams (now)

Dancing, going mad
Ruthless Pessimiste
Carrying a pathetic shadow

The dream flaps its wings, flying to oblivion
Even the cruel reality (dream)
A bird that cannot fly toward the other side of the heat
Cruel

The flapping wings crumble, towards you

Even the fleeting dream
Manipulated by the ruthless image
Birds that cannot fly

Solitude

Artist:  Moi Dix Mois
Lyrics: Mana
Album: Dix Infernal
Translator: Obscured Moon

Invited into a deep sleep, I fall
My broken heart wanders, disappearing into the darkness

Reclaiming the memories
Of being left behind

I dreamt of the two of us, from back then
Ahh, it’s lovely, being with you
We dance within the dream, never again
I cannot return to that day

Invited by a sweet fragrance, I fall
My bewildered heart is drowning in the shadows of this moment

Nothing changes
Now, my thoughts go to you

I dreamt of the two of us, from back then
Ahh, it’s lovely, being with you
We dance within the dream, never again
I cannot return to that day

I dreamt of that time, that place
Ahh, it’s lovely, being with you
I make a vow within the dream, never again
I will not get lost in that day

I feel your warmth once more

Nocturnal Romance

Artist:  Moi Dix Mois
Lyrics: Mana
Album: Nocturnal Opera
Translator: Obscured Moon

To shut dream stage inside of you

In the ruins of midnight, if a sinful soul’s
Crystal torch is lit,  a magnificent stage, funeral incantations

Passionate kiss wakes me up
The curtain falls
Deep tearful sorrow of sacrifice
Baptismal scar

The melody rings, attracting me, a pale hand

The end of our blind love

Ahh, dance, dance, go crazy, our shadows are fleeting
Sin and illusions embrace each other, in this immoral night

Passionate kiss wakes me up
The curtain falls
Deep tearful sorrow of sacrifice
Baptismal scar

On the midnight stage, the crystal light
Of two loving souls, wrapped in darkness, reuniting in that moment

Horror echoes, embracing my physically sinking body

Ahh, dance, dance, go crazy, our shadows are fleeting
Sin and illusions embrace each other, in this immoral night

Ahh, dance, dance, go crazy, our shadows
Sin and illusions embrace each other, this immoral night

Nocturnal Romance

To shut dream stage inside of you

** You may notice that the verse starting with ” Passionate kiss wakes me up” appears twice, once in italics, and once not in italics.  This was purposeful.  The verse appears twice in the song, once in Japanese, and once in English.  Rather than translate it myself, I decided to just leave it as it was.

Angelica

Artist:  Moi Dix Mois
Lyrics: Mana
Album: Dixanadu
Translator: Obscured Moon

Wandering through this maze of a forest, in search of heaven and earth, on the lakeside
Fairies sleep, bathed in moodrops

The more I sigh, the more transparent it all becomes, my glittering feelings
Like jewels, are scattered across my chest, in the magic of space and time

A maddening dance, kissed by an aphrodisiac
Angels and demons are hidden in the shadows reflected on the water’s surface

Grow to the sky Towards the future I yearn for, eternal sins and dreams
On these experienced wings, on the other side of this wide, exotic garden

Bloom with pride, beautiful Angelica

The flowers nestled in this closed-off garden have a proud fragrance
The drops from my awakened eyes run along the petals, flowing into the lake

The sparkle of azure, my unfulfilled dream is right before my eyes
Intertwined angels and demons

Grow to the sky  Eternal sins and dreams
On these experienced wings, on the other side of this wide, exotic garden
There are beautiful flowers, in full bloom

Bloom with pride, beautiful Angelica

Lamentful Miss

Artist:  Moi Dix Mois
Lyrics: Mana
Album: Dixanadu, also Lamentful Miss (Single)
Translator: Obscured Moon

In the silent darkness, angels dance and fall, their wings stolen away

I will give you another reality

The white-reaching world, filled with pain, reflects a grotesque form

This world, dyed black, is wet with the false ecstasy of evil spirits

Enveloped in vulgarity, wrapped up in my mourning, I lament my blasphemous thoughts

In the silent darkness, angels will continue dancing, falling, and losing their wings
In exchange for a sweet secret, they fell into darkness and lost their bodies

This world, dyed black, is falling prey to an ugly, pleasure-seeking pandemonium

Enveloped in vulgarity, wrapped up in my mourning, I lament my blasphemous thoughts

In the silent darkness, angels will continue dancing, falling, and losing their wings
In exchange for a sweet secret, they fell into darkness and lost their bodies

In the silent darkness, angels wear the badges of their sin, dreaming of reality
If I wake up stained red and wrapped up, it will all just be a black memory
