After Dark

senaka no kage ga nobikiru sono aima ni nigeru
hagareochita hane ni mo kidzukazu ni tobu

machikado amai nioi ryuusen
tooku mukou kara
dokoka de kiita you na nakigoe

yokaze ga hakobu awai kibou wo nosete
dokomade yukeru ka
sore wo kobamu you ni sekai wa yurete subete wo ubaisaru
yume nara sameta
dakedo bokura wa mada nanimo shiteinai
susume

mahiru no taida wo tachikiru you na sofuri de ukabu
umareochita kumo made miorosu you ni tobu

machikado chi no nioi ryuusen
tooku mukou kara
dokoka de kiita you na nakigoe

DORODORO nagareru fukaku akai tsuki ga arawarete furareru sai
detarame na hibi wo tachikiritai
nani kuwanu kao de owaranu you ni

yokaze ga hakobu awai kibou wo nosete
dokomade yukeru ka
sore wo kobamu you ni sekai wa yurete subete wo ubaisaru
yume nara sameta
dakedo bokura wa mada nanimo shiteinai
susume

After Dark

The shadow of your back stretches and breaks, escaping through the gap
You fly without noticing your feathers coming unstuck and falling

Salivating at the sweet scent on the street corner
From far beyond
Somewhere I seem to have heard a cry

Riding on the faint hopes carried by the night wind
How far will you go?
As you refuse it, the world shakes and everything is carried away
If it was a dream, you woke up
But we haven’t done anything yet
So keep going

As if slicing through the afternoon laziness, I show by my bearing
I was born, flying until I can look down from the clouds

Salivating at the scent of blood on the street corner
From far beyond
Somewhere I seem to have heard a cry

Slowly flowing, the deep red moon appears and casts the dice
Disconnecting those irresponsible days
With that innocent look, so it won’t end

Riding on the faint hopes carried by the night wind
How far will you go?
As you refuse it, the world shakes and everything is carried away
If it was a dream, you woke up
But we haven’t done anything yet
So keep going

アフターダーク

背中の影が延び切るその合間に逃げる
剥がれ落ちた羽にも気付かずに飛ぶ

街角甘い匂い流涎
遠く向こうから
何処かで聞いたような鳴き声

夜風が運ぶ淡い希望を乗せて
何処まで行けるか
それを拒むように世界は揺れて全てを奪い去る
夢なら覚めた
だけど僕らはまだ何もしていない
進め

真昼の怠惰を断ち切るような素振りで浮かぶ
生まれ落ちた雲まで見下ろすように飛ぶ

街角血の匂い流線
遠く向こうから
何処かで聞いたような泣き声

ドロドロ流れる深く赤い月が現れて振られる采
出鱈目な日々を断ち切りたい
何食わぬ顔で終わらぬように

夜風が運ぶ淡い希望を乗せて
何処まで行けるか
それを拒むように世界は揺れて全てを奪い去る
夢なら覚めた
だけど僕らはまだ何もしていない
進め
