Sound Horizon – Raijin no Hidariude

December 22, 2016

Raijin no Hidariude – 雷神の左腕 – The God of Thunder’s Left Arm

(第一巻 816頁)

(daiichi kan 816 peeji)

(Book 1, page 816)

こんな嵐の夜は 傷痕が疼く
右腕を引き千切る様な 在るはずの無い痛み
誰に話すこともなく 男はひとり苦悩している
残った左腕で何を為すべきかを…

konna arashi no yoru wa kizuato ga uzuku
migiude o hikichigiru you na aru hazu no nai itami
dare ni hanasu koto mo naku otoko wa hitori kunou shite iru
nokotta hidariude de nani o nasubeki ka o…

On stormy nights like this, his scars ache
A pain like his right arm being torn off, a pain that shouldn’t exist
Without telling anyone about it, the man is suffering alone
What should he do with his remaining left arm…

不吉な予兆は 日に日に影を色濃く落とす
確実に その時が近づいている
あの日と同じ嵐の夜 男は人知れず旅立った
覚悟は決まっている まだ左腕がある…

fukitsu na yochou wa hi ni hi ni kage o irokoku otosu
kakujitsu ni sono toki ga chikadzuite iru
ano hi to onaji arashi no yoru otoko wa hitoshirezu tabidatta
kakugo wa kimatte iru mada hidariude ga aru

The shadow of a useless omen falls more markedly day by day
And inexorably that time draws near
On a stormy night just like that one, the man set off, unbeknownst to anyone
He has made up his mind, and he still has his left arm…

男は扉を必死で押さえていた
扉の向こうは闇 邪悪な力が溢れ出ようとしている
それを左腕で必死に抑えていた
もうダメだ…右腕…右腕さえあれば…

otoko wa tobira o hisshi de osaete ita
tobira no mukou wa yami jaaku na chikara ga afuredasu you to shite iru
sore o hidariude de hisshi ni osaete ita
mou DAME da… migiude… migiude sae areba…

The man pushed at the door with all his might
On the other side was darkness; an evil power began to flow out
So he pushed it back with his left arm with all his might
But it was no use… his right arm… if only he had his right arm…

男が諦めかけたその時
薄れゆく意識の中 温かい光を感じた
右手に槍を掲げ 嵐の中幾千の人々が祈っている…

otoko ga akiramekaketa sono toki
usureyuku ishiki no naka atatakai hikari o kanjita
migite ni yari o kakage arashi no naka ikusen no hitobito ga inotte iru…

At the moment that the man gave up,
Within his fading consciousness, he felt a warm light
Hoisting spears in their right hands, within the storm countless people are praying…

あの時の子供達は皆 大人になった
雷神は右腕を失い 世界は生まれ変わった
右手が蒔いた種を育てたのは左手
そして美しい花が咲く 幾千の花が咲く…

ano toki no kodomo-tachi wa mina otona ni natta
raijin wa migiude o ushinai sekai wa umarekawatta
migite ga maita tane o sodateta no wa hidarite
soshite utsukushii hana ga saku ikusen no hana ga saku…

Those who were children at that time have all become adults
The God of Thunder lost his right arm and the world was reborn
The left hand tended the seeds sown by his right hand
And so beautiful flowers bloom, countless flowers bloom…

彼には勇敢な左腕と 幾千の右腕がある
決して負けはしない そんな想いが歴史を紡ぐ…

kare ni wa yuukan na hidariude to ikusen no migiude ga aru
keshite make wa shinai sonna omoi ga rekishi o tsumugu…

He has a heroic left arm and countless right arms
He absolutely will not lose–those thoughts weave history…

…やがて時は流れ…

… yagate toki wa nagare…

… and soon time flows by…

「ねぇおじいちゃん どうして
雷神様には 右手が無いの? 可哀想だよ。」

“Nee ojii-chan, doushite
raijin-sama ni wa migite ga nai no? Kawaisou da yo.”

“Hey, Gramps, why doesn’t
The God of Thunder have a right hand? Poor thing,”

と街角の子供は問う…

to machikado no kodomo wa tou…

The child on the street corner asks…

子供の小さな手を取り 老人は微笑んで答える

kodomo no chiisa na te o tori roujin wa hohoende kotaeru

Taking the child’s small hand, the old man smiles and answers,

「雷神様の右手は 今もここにあるよ…
ほれ その右のポッケの中にも…」

“Raijin-sama no migite wa ima mo koko ni aru yo…
Hore, sono migi no POKKE no naka ni mo…”

“The God of Thunder’s right hand is still here…
See, it’s in your right pocket…”

(Original lyrics by Revo)
