A pure-white sky, the waning moon, a labyrinth of wandering memories

sweetest dream
In the end I give you kisses garnished with flowers

I love you so much that it drives me crazy, stay with me forever
It’s just that I miss you, yes, the scars of love

The impending fog does not fully permeate this garden of hopeless observations

sweetest dream
A transparently glittering thread on my pinky finger

I love you so much that it drives me crazy, stay with me forever
I don’t know where to go, ahh, the brunt of love

Let me know what is your truth? I can’t find it anywhere
Even if it’ s a story of end so sad again… “I want to see you”

Again, like a sweet nightmare, the fragments of my memories merely awaken the pain in my chest

I love you so much that it drives me crazy, stay with me forever
It’s just that I miss you, yes, the scars of love
Even if I love you so much that it drives me crazy, we’re disconnected
In the afterlife, we will certainly be connected, for a moment and for eternity. Yes, the scars of love are pure

排梳ノ蝶 (Haiso No Chou)

Soap again tonight, you, escort, a service garden, ahh

Welcome, please come in
Fetish, deep high society room

Existence value of I…
Please feel me…

A grotesque symbol, penetrating your clothes, a rotating drill in your mouth
The king who looks up at you, a smile of ecstasy, FACE OF FINISH
The maximum compensation, transcendent exertion, transitioning into a game with which to break you
Being tormented, being whipped, hurt me quickly, this is the king’s dearest wish

Soap again tonight, you, escort, a service garden, ahh
Dressing myself in handsome attire, a face mask of terrifying muscles
I don’t hate it, it looks delicious, slowly give my thickness a polishing treatment

Welcome, please come in
Fetish, deep high society room

Existence value of I…
Please feel me…

A grotesque symbol, penetrating your clothes, a rotating drill in your mouth
The king who looks up at you, a smile of ecstasy, FACE OF FINISH
The maximum compensation, transcendent exertion, transitioning into a game with which to break you
Give me milk, give me a diaper, become my mother, this is the king’s dearest wish

A grotesque symbol, my symbol, an active sex machine
The king who looks down at you, a smile of ecstasy, FACE OF FINISH
The maximum compensation, endless limits, a pleasure garden of games of dependence
It hurts, it hurts, I want it, I want it, I want to see you again soon
A public sex machine

**AN: The kanji (排梳) in the song title are actually meaningless when put together. Ryoga stated in an interview that the kanji’s sound, “Haiso,” referred to high society and that the song was about a prostitute.
***AN: “Soap again tonight” most likely refers to Japanese “Soaplands,” a type of bathhouse/brothel

悪女の微笑 (Akujo no Hohoemi)

I had a dream where I did not wake up
A dream that killed you
Crime and punishment make love to each other
A snare of red wrists and melodies

A vague sensation hidden in my left hand
It should be left unknown

Ahh, love me…

A broken world sways
Within your twisted smile

The smile of a wicked woman
Breaks me
As though gouging my heart
I want you the way that you are

Now, anywhere, as two people
We can fall
I’ll tell you
Don’t let go of my hand

Sad, painful, unreaching
Hidden by closed fingers
The smile of a wicked woman

An unending, wailing scream
Comes even more deeply from there
The thing that tightens the collar that tamed you
Is not a human body

You understood
You pretended not to know
Even so, I want to be near you

Ahh, go crazy…
Within your twisted smile

Rip out my throat
Because I’ll always be next to you, singing

So, let me hate you
Just a little bit
Dig you fingernails in and never let go again

The smile of a wicked woman
Breaks me
As though gouging my heart
I want you the way that you are

Now, anywhere, as two people
We can fall
I’ll tell you
Don’t let go of my hand

Sad, painful, unreaching
Hidden by closed fingers
The smile of a wicked woman

EVIL BEAUTY

How I hate you
Bye Bye Bye EVIL BEAUTY

No matter how much we swear our love
Loneliness turns to pain
Whenever I notice your small lies
I drown in long nights of paranoia

“Will you betray me in the end? Have you been cheating me from the very beginning?

How I hate you
Bye Bye Bye EVIL BEAUTY

If there’s someone else, let go of my hand
Words that can’t read your mind are insufficient

Vicious greed beckons to me
Making me dance unconsciously in the palm of its hand

“The only person who can save me is myself. Is the ugliness of my heart a sin?”

How I hate you
Bye Bye Bye EVIL BEAUTY

A vividly colored evil eats into my heart
Grinding, I cannot break away from this brainwashing

With my aimless thoughts, more frightening than darkness
If I sacrifice the entirety of my reason, will I be even a little satisfied?

No matter how much we swear our love
One of our loves is one-sided
There is no longer any such equality there
Until this curse is lifted

メナス (MENACE)

Artist:  DIAURA
Lyrics:  yo-ka
Album:  メナス/境界線
Translator:  Obscured Moon

Wake up, Wake up to My eyes
Wake up, Wake up the Menace
Wake up, Wake up to My life
Wake up, Wake up the Menace

During times of peace, sharpen yourself and try to get a sense of the current situation
Those who cling to life and those who escape death

The definition of broken justice
And the vain glory of the past, lay scattered beneath my eyes

The “differences” that were determined from the moment I was born
The equality God speaks of, and dreams that were decayed by this era

I’m aware that there’s no time
Before you close off your heart, try to remember a little

Ahh, the voice I wake up to… If I am delivered into your darkness
Even the full moon will run away
Even so, if I am what you desire
We could be enemies with everything in this world, and it wouldn’t matter

Wake up, Wake up to My eyes
Wake up, Wake up the Menace
Wake up, Wake up to My life
Wake up, Wake up the Menace

I’m aware that there’s no time
Before you throw away your life, try to remember me

Ahh, the voice I wake up to… If I am delivered into your darkness
Even the full moon will run away
Even so, if I am what you desire
We could be enemies with everything in this world, and it wouldn’t matter

Wake up, Wake up to My eyes
Wake up, Wake up the Menace
Wake up, Wake up to My life
Wake up, Wake up the Menace

I only want uncertain things
For you, who are frail and dear to me
In my life, I only have one option
I’m reaching out to you, so grab hold of me

I woke again today to a good morning kiss, ahh, how long do you feel like indulging?
The contempt and pain that you gave me, will you never forgive me?

It was just a one-time indiscretion
You will never forgive me for it
It does not allow you
Betrayal of many
You are my slave
Please preparedness

The first night we touched
We talked about our dreams and forgot time

Non stop Give me
Caressing your cheek as our lips intertwined, our love melding together
Even when the morning comes, there’s no reason to separate

I’ve got bad
You’ve got bad

I’ll hold fast to you, even unto eternity, I cannot lie to you
Gradually something changed, this is my excuse

It was an indiscretion that I finally committed
It was just a one-time indiscretion
Everything with you wasn’t a lie
Now it seems as if you’re going to break me

The second night we touched
We swore that there was nothing else we needed

Non stop shake lover
Caressing your cheek as our lips intertwined, our love melding together
Even when the morning comes, there’s no reason to separate

When did this begin?
Our bodies on top of each other, momentum, pouring rain
Holding an umbrella, being exhausted and discarded

I’ve got bad
You’ve got bad

VANQUISH

Lyrics: Byou

control…

The rampage of the spirit
God me!God me!
A kill-joy’s pleasure
Mad me!Mad me!
What garbage did you see in the scenario where you cursed me?

Well-performed conspiracy
God me!God me!
A splendid arousal
Mad me!Mad me!
What garbage did you see in the scenario where you cursed me?

Faintly triggered Resistance
If you were spouting flames Distraction
Before being buried Distance
Synaptic disturbance Satisfaction

A spark of fear

The rampage of the spirit
God me!God me!
A kill-joy’s pleasure
Mad me!Mad me!
An out of control Jekyll and Hyde
What did I see in the scenario I sensed?

Faintly triggered Resistance
If you were spouting flames Distraction
Before being buried Distance
Synaptic disturbance Satisfaction

Maddened, I feast upon the rose of conquest
Shut me!Shut me!
Maddened, in a sea of burning flames
Shut me…
Assaulted my nausea and cramps this night, I become a cripple…
Shut me! Shut me!
