Art Cube – Kagami No Namida

Mirror Tears

Mirror tears
Reflected pieces of awareness that were stained by memories
Mirror tears
Daydreams that are stirred up and going mad
Mirror tears
Thoughts I looked down on are manipulated by the shadow of time
Mirror tears
The place for my lips is on you…

Shoot tears
What I punched was the escape of illuminated awareness
Shoot tears
Faded words, falling in disarray
Shoot tears
Those thoughts that float and vanish, depicted in a dream
Shoot tears
The place for your lips is on me…

Though I wait inside a mirror
I’m afraid of the transparent heart I can see
Feelings that began to swell up
Pick up and collect only the fallen tears

Mirror tears
Reflected pieces of awareness that were stained by memories
Mirror tears
Daydreams that are stirred up and going mad
Mirror tears
Thoughts I looked down on are manipulated by the shadow of time
Mirror tears
The place for our lips is where?

Me, reflected in the mirror
I bow to the transparent heart I can see
Inside the flock of stars that the moon dyed
There were tears that keep on singing

Me, reflected in the mirror…
I bow to the transparent heart I can see…
Inside the flock of stars that the moon dyed…
There were tears that keep on singing…

Art Cube – Test Tube Skeleton

Spreading dreams, the words of a spell, a test tube skeleton in glass
Scattered emotions, extracting fangs and writhing
Sticking out its tongue, a test tube skeleton tries to joke with unchanging magic
Do I hold it to the sky? Do I twist it?
Tell me at once

A test tube skeleton that coveted the kiss of a spotted butterfly
There are cracks in the glass that engulfs me

Indulging and humming a melody I can hear
Heaven started to swell

The melody a skeleton plays
I heard it in the glass, creep out from the test tube
I started to notice when it grasped at the sky
The melody a skeleton plays
Even now, wriggle and creep out from the test tube
Not letting go, standing still, Test tube skeleton

The test tube skeleton spits out the butterfly’s kiss that was just a whim
There are cracks in the glass that engulfs me

Indulging and humming a melody I played
Heaven began to walk

The melody a skeleton plays
Even now in the glass, creep out from the test tube
It started to reach out, grasping at the sky
The melody a skeleton plays
Always starting to talk, creep out from the test tube
Stretching out its hands, it won’t vanish, a test tube skeleton

creep out from the test tube…

The melody a skeleton plays
Even now in the glass, creep out from the test tube
It started to reach out, grasping at the sky
The melody a skeleton plays
Always starting to talk, creep out from the test tube

Stretching out its hands, it won’t vanish, a test tube skeleton

Art Cube – Akatsuki no mai

The Dance Of Dawn

Why is it that the traces of you I saw on a hill don’t come closer?
Even though I can see you like this…

Dream patterns of you that peeked out from the spaces between clouds
I feel you even like this

Now embrace my body that was flowing
My healing scars cross even the night
Now embrace only these strained beats
If they echo together “Look, come here”

The dance of dawn, softly drifting without letting go of our joined hands
If we can get lost, we’ll keep dancing while we freeze as we are

Is the negative image of you I saw in a dream locked in my chest?
Let’s keep dancing and whirling in the dawn

Why is it that the traces of you I saw by the moonlight don’t come closer?
Even though I can see you like this…

Dream patterns of you that peeked out from the silence
I feel you even like this

Now I’ll break whatever feelings I shut out
My healing scars cross even time
Now if I embrace only these swaying beats
After they echo together “Look, come here”

The dance of dawn, softly drifting without letting go of our joined hands
If we can get lost, we’ll keep dancing while we shiver as we are
Is the negative image of you I felt by memory locked in my chest even now?
Let’s keep dancing and whirling in the dawn

My darkness that was repeated over and over
You… do you love me?
If it can’t be erased isn’t that fine? Just you…
So I don’t search for you anymore, because we’re already melting together…
Only the night starts to burst open

Dance in the dawn

The dance of dawn, softly drifting without letting go of our joined hands
If we can get lost, we’ll keep dancing while we shiver as we are
Is the negative image of you I felt by memory locked in my chest even now?
Let’s keep dancing and whirling in the dawn

Kurebe Takuya – Hana

Flowers

I stop my feet on the swaying light reflected by the snow
And if I take a breath, holding out my cold hands
There’s my white, warm life

So I don’t fall, so I don’t stumble
There’s always a person to lead me by the hand
‘Thank you’ my heart prays to the sky

Because it’ll come to an end someday
Surely the emotions in my chest will be eternal

It’s just like the blooming and falling flowers
Bearing fruit and spinning the future
If I sadly look back at the figure behind me
The shadows are already wind somewhere

Teardrops, I scoop them in my hands
I’ll make flowers bloom on these trees
I’ll make love bloom on this path of ours

Now as if I want to raise my voice and tell you
The kind words that are in my heart
I’ll run, to the city where you’ll soon be sleeping

Because I’m overflowing with things that will someday disappear
Now I want to move just a little forward and love you
I have a feeling that even the faraway, distant past
Is getting closer to us again
Crossing thousands of nights to meet us
What kind of time is this for us?

It’s just like the blooming and falling flowers
Bearing fruit and spinning the future
I have a feeling that even the faraway, distant past
Is getting closer to us again
Crossing thousands of nights to meet us
What kind of time is this for us?

I believe in what I wished

Moonlit Night Promenade

Blown by a wintry wind
Even inside my heart
The things malicious people say
I can’t get out of my head

Irritated, I light a cigarette
Everything is trivial anyway
Doesn’t matter
While I take a side glance at the flickering red lights
My slow footsteps

Moonlit Night Promenade
Deserted and left behind at the center of the city
I walk alone to the postal service

Would you, the normal one, laugh at me?
Would you, the normal one, speak ill of me?
Would you, the normal one, laugh at me?
Would you, the normal one, speak ill of me?

“It’s divine possession…”
After I’ve dropped to the place I’ll drop to
After I’ve fallen to the place I’ll fall to
Will the fallen leaves be blown by the wind and dance?
The fallen leaves may be blown by the wind and dance

Would you, the feeble-minded one, laugh at me?
Would you, the feeble-minded one, speak ill of me?
Would you, the feeble-minded one, laugh at me?
Would you, the feeble-minded one, speak ill of me?

“I’m the human who was chosen…”
After I’ve dropped to the place I’ll drop to
After I’ve fallen to the place I’ll fall to
Will the fallen leaves be blown by the wind and dance?
Will the fallen leaves be blown by the wind and dance?

After I’ve dropped to the place I’ll drop to
After I’ve fallen to the place I’ll fall to
Will the fallen leaves be blown by the wind and dance?
The fallen leaves may be blown by the wind and dance

The deep blue universe in my field of vision
Seems to suck me in
The deep blue universe in my field of vision
Seems to suck me in
I’m sucked in…

Weakling Pest

Calling abuses in the shadows, can’t believe in anyone at all
A lonely space, that’s comfortable for me
I don’t do good things, but it’s not that I do bad things either
Nevertheless I somehow feel guilty
Gossiping behind my back that someone’s made a fool of me
Laughing at me, talking badly of me
And I’ve no place to run to when I’m cornered…
It’s a trivial thing, but I despair right away and it’s painful
The ocher that sighed so it would cloud over…

I’ll see someday
I’ll see now
I’ll see someday
I’ll see someday
I’ll see now
I’ll see someday

I was raised and expected to be smarter than anyone
From the time I was young it was always “study and be praised”
I could only guess my father’s temper by being beaten and kicked
On some days the terror would occasionally revive, deep in my heart…
Can I base all my value on the value of others?
Men and women both are only blind, with no sense of even that
I won’t be a person that everyone recognizes, I don’t want to be
I’m dragging along a past full of trauma

I’ll see someday
I’ll see now
I’ll see someday
I’ll see someday
I’ll see now
I’ll see someday

When it seems like I’ll break I’m a madman of course, I’ll go to hospital
It’s a victim delusion but I’m reckless, I can’t stop
I have a feeling I’ll be too excited when I’m in front of everyone
I get strange things in my head like “I’ll keep stabbing you with a knife”
It’s not that I think random murders are other people’s problems
I couldn’t avoid the limits of hatred and malice and I got scared
When I act out madness, even reality becomes funny
Always, anywhere, the truth is I want to be crazy
I want to be crazy…

Like a child embraced by his mother
I can go to sleep just this night, right?
When it’s silent and I dream with peaceful feelings
It disrupts me, that intruding voice

I’ll see someday
I’ll see now
I’ll see someday
I’ll see someday
I’ll see now
I’ll see someday
I’ll see someday
I’ll see now
I’ll see someday
I’ll see someday
I’ll see now
I’ll see someday

Me, the weakling pest…
Me, the weakling pest…
Me, the weakling pest…
Me, the weakling pest…
