Calendula Requiem

Lyrics & Music: kanon
Arrangement: Keiichi Wakui, kanon & Naoki Chiba

A flower that released the morning light
Wants rain that won't pour down
And falls into a wakeless sleep

A voice softly calls someone
Is the paradise of darkness
A lie or a dream?
My body that's lost
And my heart known as "self"
Presenting that compensation
What will I be given?

This life is fragile and transient enough
To rob tears out of you
Is death
That visits everything
Mourned over as "fear"?

The calendula that sings the end of the show
Is quietly in full bloom
Hatred
Sadness
Are taken into its roots
The calendula that sings the end of the show
Enriches loneliness
It wants rain that won't pour down
And falls into a wakeless sleep

A moan tears up my memories
Tonight's love and hates
The past and present
Are disarranged by the vain waves
My timid soul
Wonders what I'll be able to see
On the outskirts I'll struggle to

These betraying words are too numerous
To completely defend myself with both hands
Some time ago
I believe in the love I saw
I want to live through the moment

The calendula that sings the end of the show
Is quietly in full bloom
Love
Romance
Are wrapped up in its leaves
The calendula that sings the end of the show
Enriches loneliness
It wants rain that won't pour down
And falls into a wakeless sleep

If one day the time comes when my hopes and despair become "nothing"
I'll notice the whereabouts of truth

Living is painful
But I still want to be here
The noise that jars my heart
Is the evidence that I'm still alive

Even if I become lonely

The calendula that sings the end of the show
Is quietly in full bloom
Hatred
Sadness
Are taken into its roots
The calendula that sings the end of the show
Enriches loneliness
It wants rain that won't pour down
And falls into a wakeless sleep

So that this flower doesn't wither
It breathes in the food of the earth it goes against
The requiem of a funeral sounds out
It melts in the dry wind

朝の光を手放した花
注がれない雨を求め
覚めない眠りにつく

誰かをそっと呼ぶ声
闇の楽園は
嘘か夢か
失うのは身体(カラダ)と
自分という心
その対価を差し出し
何を得られるのだろう

この涙で奪える程に
命は脆くて儚くて
全てに訪れる
死(終わり)を
「恐怖」と嘆くのか

終演を歌う金盞花
静かに咲き誇る
憎しみも
悲しみも
その根でたくり寄せて
終焉を歌う金盞花
寂しさを潤す
注がれない雨を求めて
覚めない眠りにつく

記憶を裂く哀号(あいごう)
今宵の愛憎
過去と現在(今)の
徒波(あだなみ)に乱されて
臆する魂
その辿り着く果てに
何が見られるのだろう

この両手で守り切るには
裏切る言葉が多過ぎて
いつぞや
見た愛を信じ
刹那を生き抜きたい

終演を歌う金盞花
静かに咲き誇る
愛しさも
恋しさも
その葉で包み込んで
終焉を歌う金盞花
寂しさを潤す
注がれない雨を求めて
覚めない眠りにつく

いつか希望も絶望も「無」になる時が来れば
誠(まこと)の所在に気付くだろう

イキルコトハクルシイ
ソレデモ ココニイタイ
ココロガ キシムオトハ
マダイキテルトイウ ショウコダカラ

例え孤独になろうとも

終演を歌う金盞花
静かに咲き誇る
憎しみも
悲しみも
その根でたぐり寄せて
終焉を歌う金盞花
寂しさを潤す
注がれない雨を求めて
覚めない眠りにつく

この花を枯らさぬようにと
抗う大地の糧(かて)を吸い
響く弔いの鎮魂歌(レクイエム)
乾いた風に溶ける
