“Elephants and People and Ants and…”

Lyrics Courtesy of: Garden of D

All kinds of animals are being chased through the forest
People take without giving
Flames burn the forest to nothing
Without time to be revived, it disappears

The circle of life
Seeds becoming a forest

According to the opposite hand
Fluency is interrupted

An intelligent king that is to become great is said to surpass (his) people
People that become trivial are said to surpass ants
Troops that become microscopic are said to surpass elephants
Mutually, working in a three way stand that doesn’t work

All kinds of animals are being chased through the forest
People take without giving
Flames burn the forest to nothing
Without time to be revived, it disappears

The angry, big body frame, changing into a man of valor
The one with a gun in hand is shooting
Standing on a weaponless mound
Countless fangs are taking revenge
Repeating catastrophes are
Not ending until eradication
Producing disorder again, it goes mad
Even so, people are repeating (the past)

レイン(Rein)

“Rain”

Artist: SID
Lyrics: Mao
Album: deadstock
Translator: Panko

June’s lie, visibly real, tucked away in sepia
I came to not understand things like snuggling and warmth

You imposed that “I was fine by myself” so it was goodbye
If it’s that kind of consolidation, then shouldn’t I be tired of hearing it?

Without stopping, the merciless memories don’t even seem to give forgiveness
If I close my eyes, with momentum increasing, you’re laughing at a distance

I wonder when the rain will stop, it’s been cold for an extremely long time
Why did the rain choose me? It chose me, who has no escape

Yes, I found it, in the new morning, time is intruding
The destination is not the “next” but only pursuing “too much”

From safety, I who was reproachful and cowardly was with you who gave me cues
I wonder if it will be soon? Groping, my troubles spill over my tired cheeks

My eyes, not wanted to know the past; My finger that rinses it off
At a graceful stride, my healing scar, seeming as if I will arrive at a destination that I will never reach

I wonder when the rain will stop, it’s been so cold for an extremely long time
Why did the rain choose me? I’m being enveloped so maybe it’s good

Not knowing when it will stop, today the rain also continues to pour
Gently, while inside my held out umbrella, I’m snuggled in warmth
