Sound Horizon – Sunawachi… Seikan Chou TONNERU

June 18, 2015

Sunawachi… Seikan Chou TONNERU – 即ち…星間超トンネル – That Is… The Super Interstellar Tunnel

(In the year 2015, mankind flies away to the galaxy.
If you think, “Isn’t that too early?” the horizon’s civilization is out of date.)

バビロンの捕囚も… カノッサの屈辱も…
再征服も… 大憲章も…
魔女裁判も… 異端審問も…
人種隔離政策も… 世系格差制度も…

BABIRON no hoshuu mo… KANOSSA no kutsujoku mo…
saiseifuku [Reconquista] mo… daikenshou [Magna Carta] mo…
majo saiban mo… itanshinmon mo…
jinshukakuri seisaku [Apartheid] mo… yokei kakusa [Caste] seido mo…

The capture of Babylon… and the disgrace of Canossa…
And the Reconquista… and the Magna Carta…
And the witch trials… and the Inquisition…
And apartheid… and the caste system…

石油危機も… 金融危機も…
黒死病も… 後天性免疫不全症候群も… 流行性感冒も…
僕等は全てを… 歴史の全てを… 乗り越えて来たんだ……

sekiyukiki [oil shock] mo… kinyukukiki [Lehman shock] mo…
kokushibyou [Pest] mo… koutensei men’eki fuzenshoukoukan [AIDS] mo… ryuukouseikanbou [Influenza] mo…
bokura wa subete o… rekishi no subete o… norikoete kita n’da…

And the oil shock… and the Lehman shock…
And the Black Death… and AIDS… and influenza…
We’ve overcome all of this… all of history…

腹が減れば時に凶暴になるけど… 大切な人を亡くせば涙する…
嗚呼… キミの星だって… きっと似たようなもんだろう?
僕等が歩んだ歴史を届けに征くよ…

hara ga hereba toki ni kyoubou ni naru kedo… taisetsu na hito mo nakuseba namida suru…
aa… KIMI no hoshi datte… kitto nita you na mon darou?
bokura ga ayunda rekishi o todoke ni yuku yo…

When people are hungry, they can do monstrous things… but if they lose those precious to them, they still cry…
Ah… it must be similar on your planet, too, right?
I’m coming to bring you the path of history that we’ve trod

即ち…星間☆超トンネルで!

sunawachi… seikan☆chou TONNERU de!

That is… through the Super☆Interstellar Tunnel!

ハンムラビ法典も… ナポレオン法典も…
西部開拓も… 大量殺戮も…
産業革命も… 情報革命も…
世界大戦も… 民族紛争も…

HANMURABI houten mo… NAPOREON houten mo…
seibu kaitaku [Wild Frontier] mo… tairyou satsuriku [Holocaust] mo…
sangyou kakumei mo… jouhou [IT] kakumei mo…
sekai taisen mo… minzoku funsou mo…

The Code of Hammurabi… and the Napoleonic Code…
And the wild frontier… and the Holocaust…
And the Industrial Revolution… and the IT revolution…
And the World Wars… and ethnic conflicts…

地震と津波… 噴火と竜巻…
飢餓と旱魃… 核による汚染…
僕等は全てを… 世界の全てを… 受け止めて来たんだ……

jishin to tsunami… funka to tatsumaki…
kiga to kanbatsu… kaku ni yoru osen…
bokura wa subete o… sekai no subete o… uketomete kita n’da…

Earthquakes and tsunamis… volcanic eruptions and tornadoes…
Famine and droughts… nuclear contamination…
We’ve survived all of these things… all of the world…

詰まらない事ですぐに諍いを起こすけど… 美しい花が枯れれば胸痛む…
嗚呼… キミの星だって… きっと似たようなもんだろう?
僕等が刻んだ想いを届けに征くよ…

tsumaranai koto de sugu ni isakai o okosu kedo… utsukushii hana ga karereba mune itamu…
aa… KIMI no hoshi datte… kitto nita you na mon darou?
bokura ga kizanda omoi o todoke ni yuku yo…

People will readily fight over any trifling thing… but our hearts still ache when a beautiful flower withers
Ah… it must be similar on your planet, too, right?
I’m coming to bring you the feelings etched in our hearts

即ち…星間☆超トンネルで!

sunawachi… seikan☆chou TONNERU de!

That is… through the Super☆Interstellar Tunnel!

僕等の星の間にも… 悲しい争いがあった…
それでも過去は無駄じゃない… 決して……

bokura no hoshi no aida ni mo… kanashii arasoi [kako] ga atta…
soredemo kako wa muda ja nai… keshite…

On our planet, too, we’ve had… a sad history of conflict…
But that history was not in vain… surely…

願ったことが全て叶う世界じゃないけど… それでも希望を捨て切れずに今日も足掻く…
嗚呼… 未だ見ぬキミだって… きっと似たようなもんだろう?
僕等が夢見た未来を届けに征くよ…

negatta koto ga subete kanau sekai ja nai kedo… soredemo kibou o sutekirezu ni kyou mo agaku…
aa… mada minu KIMI datte… kitto nita you na mon darou?
bokura ga yume mita mirai o todoke ni yuku yo…

It’s not a world where all your wishes come true… but we keep on struggling without losing hope…
Ah… it must be similar for you, whom I have not yet met, right?
I’m coming to bring you the future we’ve dreamed of…

即ち…星間☆超トンネルで

sunawachi… seikan☆chou TONNERU de

That is… through the Super☆Interstellar Tunnel
