Japanese

Ukiyo wa yume shibai   kyoei de kaku mo tanoshiki

Shosen wa aiirenu   hito no kage ni magirete ikiru

Sonna kimochi tasogarete   akatsuki iro somatteku Sore demo terasu to shinjite mitsukeru myoujou Warera   kegare naki   sui musou Doko e yuku   doko e yuku

Kenage ni   machi no katasumi ni   boukyaku no ichirin no hana ga   saite iru Na mo naki   sono sugata wa maru de hora   shousei no you dakedo

Dareka no nageku koe ga suru   makeru na   hora sugu iku kara Taiji shite taiji shite   yami wo terasu   warera no chishio Hitohira no monogatari   iku mo ikanu mo kimi shidai Sakimidarete misemashou   nin no ichiji   mune ni kizande

Ukiyo wa taegataki   madowasu oni ni afureteru Kien banjou no gotoshi   itsumo kokoro ni in wo musube

Osoruru na   tajirogu na   tonikaku   toki wa susumu nda Unpu wa tenpu   kimi no kakugo shidai Ichiren takushou   sui musou Doko e yuku   doko e yuku

Amaneku   an ni tagau koto bakari   iwan ya Sonnan wa   hyaku mo shouchi dakara Ikusen renma no yonin no senshitachi   iki wa yoiyoi   kaeranai!

Dareka no nageku koe ga suru   makeru na   hora soba ni iru kara Taiji shite taiji shite   yami wo terasu   warera no chishio Hitohira no monogatari   iku mo ikanu mo kimi shidai Sakimidarete misemashou   nin no ichiji   mune ni kizande

English translation

This transient world is the stage of dreams, exceedingly fun in its vanity. In the end, we dwell within the shadows of those with whom we will never fit in.

Those feelings fade with the dusk and are dyed with the color of dawn; Even so, believing that it will shine, we find the morning star. We, the untainted, unparalleled green… Where do we go, where do we go?

Gallantly, in the corner of the city, a single flower of oblivion is in bloom. Look, its nameless form is the very image of our own humble selves.

I hear somebody’s grieving voice. Don’t give in! See, we’re on our way right now. Confront and eliminate; the burning blood that runs through our veins illuminates the dark. A story of a single page; proceed or not, it all depends on you. Let us bloom in a wild display. To endure is the key – etch that into your heart!

This transient world is so much to endure, teeming with demons that lead you astray. For spirit and vigor, always keep the seal bound in your heart.

Do not fear, do not falter; for now, the moments move on. Fortune is granted from above; it all depends on your resolve. All our fates as one, unparalleled green – Where do we go, where do we go?

The world is filled with things that will defy expectations; We know that all too well. We four soldiers, forged through thousands of trials, can travel the whole world, but we cannot return!

I hear somebody’s grieving voice. Don’t give in! See, we’re right here by your side. Confront and eliminate; the burning blood that runs through our veins illuminates the dark. A story of a single page; proceed or not, it all depends on you. Let us bloom in a wild display. To endure is the key – etch that into your heart!

In our uncertainty, we comrades sing of love and passion. Beyond that, we need no words; we live our lives, our journeys, to discover that.

Seeking an eternal love, honing myself in the moment, I move again today with my comrades. To endure is the key – etch that into your heart. A story of a single page; proceed or not, it all depends on you. Let us bloom in a wild display. To endure is the key – etch that into your heart!
