Sound Horizon – Sho no Sasayaki

September 21, 2016

Sho no Sasayaki – 書の囁き – The Whisper of the Book

私は<書の意思の総体>
アナタたちが<黒の予言書>と呼んでいるモノの原典
つまらない昔話でも宜しければ お話ししてさしあげましょう…

watashi wa {sho no ishi no soutai} [Chronica]
ANATA-tachi ga {kuro no yogensho} [Black Chronicle] to yonde iru MONO no genten
tsumaranai mukashibanashi demo yoroshikereba o-hanashi shite sashiagemashou…

I am Chronica, the Will of the Book
The original source of that which you call the Black Chronicle
Though these are dull tales of the past, if you please, I would speak with you…

昔々ある所に一人の男がいました
彼は破滅の運命に囚われていましたが
苦難の末…その運命から逃れる道を見つけ出しました…

mukashi mukashi aru tokoro ni hitori no otoko ga imashita
kare wa hametsu no unmei ni torawarete imashita ga
kunan no sue… sono unmei kara nogareru michi o mitsukedashimashita…

Once upon a time, in a far-off land, there was a man
He was held captive by a destiny of destruction
But after many hardships… he found a path to escape from that destiny…

しかし…彼がその運命から逃れることは 別の運命によって定められていました
その別の運命から逃れられたとしても 更にまた別の運命に囚われてしまいます
結局はその枠を何処まで広げようと いづれは簡単に絡めとられてしまうのです
書の真理をご理解頂けるかしら? 黒の歴史は改竄を赦さないのです…

shikashi… kare ga sono unmei kara nogareru koto wa betsu no unmei ni yotte sadamerarete imashita
sono betsu no unmei kara nogarerareta to shite mo sara ni mata betsu no unmei ni torawarete shimaimasu
kekkyoku wa sono waku o doko made hirogeyou to idzure wa kantan ni karametorarete shimau no desu
sho no shin’ri o go-rikai itadakeru kashira? kuro no rekishi wa kaizan o yurusanai no desu…

But… the fact that he would escape from that destiny was fated by another destiny
Even should he escape from that other destiny, he would find himself captive of yet another destiny
In the end, if that framework is expanded in all directions, eventually it will easily entangle one
Do you understand the truth of the book? The black history does not permit alterations…

アナタは永遠を信じますか? …そんなことはどうでも良いのです
さしたる問題ではありません 書の歴史は全てを識っているのですから
幾度となく誕生と消滅を繰り返す世界 全ては予定調和の内
書の真理をご理解頂けたかしら? 黒の歴史は改竄を決して赦さないのです…

ANATA wa eien o shinjimasu ka? … sonna koto wa dou demo ii no desu
sashitaru mondai de wa arimasen sho no rekishi wa subete o shitte iru no desu kara
ikudo to naku tanjou to shoumetsu o kurikaesu sekai subete wa yoteichouwa no uchi
sho no shin’ri o go-rikai itadaketa kashira? kuro no rekishi wa kaizan o keshite yurusanai no desu…

Do you believe in eternity? … well, it matters little if you do or not
The problem this poses is of little significance, because the history of the book knows all
In this world where births and extinctions repeat, everything is within the pre-established harmony
Have you understood the truth of the book? The black history does not permit alterations…

結局彼は運命の手から逃がれられませんでした
…されど憐れむ必要はないのです
ワタシもアナタも誰ひとり逃がれられないのですから…

kekkyoku kare wa unmei no te kara nogareraremasen deshita
… saredo awaremu hitsuyou wa nai no desu
WATASHI mo ANATA mo dare hitori nogarerarenai no desu kara…

In the end, he was unable to escape from the hand of destiny
… But you need not pity him
Because neither I nor you nor anyone else can escape from it…

めでたし…めでたし…

medetashi… medetashi…

And we all live happily… ever after..

(Original lyrics by Revo)

From → Chronicle 2nd
