くれなゐ (Kurenai) – Crimson

Sora no Ki / Tsuki Amano

from Sora no ki album.

—–

People, wielding their different ideas of justice, form into groups
Those who are crowded out carry shears and capture me

The fragrance of warmth starting to go deviant
I was shaken, laughed at
You disappear into the crevices of the dark night
As my substitute

Scarlet, scarlet
Forever engraved
On the bundled wreckage of you and I
Still swimming in the same forever
On the torn wings waiting for me
Soaring in the sky

How awake must I be to bring you to the base of the morning sun?
How many punishments must I undergo, how much love to perform before I can return?

I wanted to give chase, wanted to catch you
Wanted to walk together with you
You escape through the closed door
Slipping through countless times

This door, dyed scarlet
As if smoldering
I want to embrace these gentle wounds
Still swimming in the same forever
Your wings connect these
Two hands of mine

I survive like a butterfly with its wings plucked
Unable to fly

Scarlet, scarlet
Forever engraved
On the bundled wreckage of you and I
This door, dyed scarlet
As if smoldering
I want to embrace these gentle wounds
Still swimming in the same forever
On the torn wings waiting for me
Soaring in the sky

KANJI

それぞれの正しさを振り翳すように人は群れを成す
食み出すもの刈り取る鋏を携え わたしを捕らえる

狂いはじめてた ぬくもりの香り
揺さぶられた わたしを笑い
君は消えてゆく 闇夜の隙間に
わたしの身代わりに

朱く 朱く
永遠に刻み付いた
君とわたしをひとつ束ねた残骸
今も同じ永遠を泳ぎながら
わたしを待つの ちぎれた翼で
大空を舞って

どれだけ目が醒めたら 朝日の麓へ君を連れ出せる
どれだけ罰を拭う 愛を奏でたら わたしは戻れる

追いつきたかった 掴まえたかった
君とふたり 歩きたかった
君は逃げてゆく 閉ざした扉を
いくつも擦り抜けて

燻るほど
染まりゆく朱い罪を
優しい傷を わたしは抱いてゆきたい
今も同じ永遠を泳いでいる
君の翼に わたしの両手を
繋ぎ合わせて

わたしは生きてく 翼をもがれた
飛べない蝶のまま

朱く 朱く
永遠に刻み付いた
君とわたしをひとつ束ねた残骸
燻るほど
染まりゆく朱い罪を
優しい傷を わたしは抱いてゆきたい
今も同じ永遠を泳ぎながら
わたしを待つの ちぎれた翼で
大空を舞って
