Sound Horizon – Thanatos no Gensou

December 22, 2015

Thanatos no Gensou – タナトスの幻想 – Thanatos’s Illusions

──囚われし虚構の城 珊瑚が還るのは始まりの部屋──

-torawareshi kyokou no shiro sango ga kaeru no wa hajimari no heya-

-A captive imaginary castle; the coral returns to the room where it began-

壊れたマリオネット 銀色の馬車
輪廻の砂時計 珊瑚の城 タナトス
全ては少女の幻想 眠れぬ夜の悪夢
意識の深層で タナトスの囁く声を聴く

kowareta MARIONETTO gin’iro no basha
rinne no sunadokei sango no shiro TANATOSU
subete wa shoujo no gensou nemurenu yoru no akumu
ishiki no shinsou de TANATOSU no sasayaku koe o kiku

A broken marionette, a silver carriage
An hourglass of Samsara, a coral castle, Thanatos
All are the girl’s illusions, the nightmares of her sleepless nights
In the depths of her consciousness, she hears Thanatos’s whisper

不完全なる願望 恣意に傾く天秤
現実と幻想に揺れる 少女の境界
不可逆なる時が 昼と夜を繰り返すように
意識の表層と深層は 鮮やかに配役(キャスト)を入れ換える

fukanzen naru ganbou shii ni katamuku tenbin
genjitsu to gensou ni yureru shoujo no kyoukai
fukagyaku naru toki ga hiru to yoru o kurikaesu you ni
ishiki no hyousou to shinsou wa azayaka ni haiyaku [KYASUTO] o irekaeru

A half-formed wish, scales that tip arbitrarily
The girl’s boundary wavering between reality and illusion
As if irreversible time repeats days and nights
The surface and depths of her consciousness deftly replace the cast

現実は唯 そこに在るだけの風景
幻想を映し出すのは いつも私の心
歪な鏡 死の本能 眩暈 駆け巡る衝動
仮面の獣 少女は檻の中

genjitsu wa tada soko ni aru dake no fuukei
gensou o utsushidasu no wa itsumo watashi no kokoro
ibitsu na kagami shi no honnou memai kakemeguru shoudou
kamen no kemono shoujo wa ori no naka

Reality is simply the scenery that is only over there
What was projecting the illusions was always my own heart
A warped mirror, an instinct for death, dizziness, an impulse running through
A masked beast; the girl is in the cage

刹那を生きられる程 私は強くもなく
永遠(とわ)を生きられる程 私は鈍くもない
私は…唯悲鳴を上げている私を抱きしめる
夜毎 タナトスに抱かれる夢を見ながら…

setsuna o ikirareru hodo watashi wa tsuyoku mo naku
towa o ikirareru hodo watashi wa nibuku mo nai
watashi wa… tada himei o agete iru watashi o dakishimeru
yogoto TANATOSU ni dakareru yume o minagara…

Since I can live for but an instant, I am not strong
But since I can live for eternity, I am not dull
I’m only… screaming and embracing myself
As nightly, embraced by Thanatos, I dream…

Lan La La La La Lan Lan Lan La La La La Lan Lan

廻る廻る 悪夢のような鐘の音
その果てに私が待っているのは 銀色の馬車?…それとも
偽りのタナトス 偽りの輪廻 零れ落ちるまでの詩
私は幻想を重ねながらも生きてゆく…

mawaru mawaru akumu no you na kane no ne
sono hate ni watashi ga matte iru no wa gin’iro no basha? … soretomo
itsuwari no TANATOSU itsuwari no rinne koboreochiru made no uta
watashi wa gensou o kasanenagara mo ikite yuku…

Turning and turning, the nightmarish sound of the bells
What do I await at their end–a silver carriage, or…?
A false Thanatos, a false Samsara, an overflowing song
I live while piling illusion upon illusion…

廻る廻る 悪夢のような鐘の音
死への途上を辿る仕組み(システム) 生は幻想を生み続ける装置(デバイス)
廻る廻る 終わらない鐘の音…何処かで
タナトスに見つめられているような気がした…

mawaru mawaru akumu no you na kane no oto
shi e no tojou o tadoru shikumi [SHISUTEMU] sei wa gensou o umitsudzukeru souchi [DEBAISU]
mawaru mawaru owaranai kane no ne… dokoka de
TANATOSU ni mitsumerarete iru you na ki ga shita…

Turning and turning, the nightmarish sound of the bells
A system for following the path towards death; life is a device for continuously birthing illusions
Turning and turning, the neverending sound of the bells… I had the feeling
That Thanatos was watching me from somewhere…

(Original lyrics by Revo.)
