Tao

Lyrics & Music: Sakito

Not caring for this life that will someday disappear
I had no reason to protect it
Though a flower, it's a fruitless flower of the times
Until it struggles and withers

Walk and walk as I might, the standstill continues
That place I wished for is vaguely far off
Search and search as I might, it's nothing but imitations
The answer I seek wasn't here either

A demon with your face laughed at me
"There's no future for you" it said
If I change now, I will change again tomorrow
Biting my nails...

Not caring for this life that will someday disappear
I had no reason to protect it
If I'm not to bloom, I'll just take root
Until I wither right here

Brushing off the hand extended to me
I go forward little by little with heavy feet
Still, I strongly prayed
That there would be something ahead

Not caring for this life that will someday disappear
I had no reason to protect it
Though a flower, it's a fruitless flower of the times
Until it struggles and withers

My demise is slowly approaching
But if I have the wish to get through that
I'll look askance at those which are rotting
And the road will continue on

Tao

Sakushi & Sakkyoku: Sakito

Douse itsuka ushinau inochi nara
Tsukawazu mamoru riyuu mo nai
Hana to iedomo jidai no adabana
Agake kareru made

Arukedo arukedo ashibumi wa tsudzuku
Nozonda kanochi wa haruka oboro ni
Sagasedo sagasedo nisemono bakari de
Motomeru kotae wa koko nimo nakatta

Kimi no kao shita oni ga waratta
"Omae ni mirai wa nai" to katatta
Ima wo kaereba ashita mo kawaru
Tsume wo kajitte

Douse itsuka ushinau inochi nara
Tsukawazu mamoru riyuu mo nai
Sakanu naraba tada ne wo oroshite
Koko de kareru made

Sashinoberareta sono te wo haratte
Kedarui ashi de sukoshizutsu mae e
Soredemo saki ni nanika aru n da to
Tsuyoku inotta

Douse itsuka ushinau inochi nara
Tsukawazu mamoru riyuu mo nai
Hana to iedomo jidai no adabana
Agake kareru made

Yukkuri to semarikuru owari wo
Norikoeru ishi areba koso
Kusari yuku mono wo yokome ni shite
Michi wa tsudzuite iku

Tao

作詞・作曲:咲人

どうせいつか失う命なら
遣わず守る理由もない
花といえども時代の徒花(あだばな)
足掻け枯れるまで

歩けど歩けど 足踏みは続く
望んだ かの地は 遥か朧に
探せど探せど 偽物ばかりで
求める 答えは ここにも無かった

君の顔した鬼が嗤った
「お前に未来は無い」と語った
今を変えれば明日も変わる
爪を齧って

どうせいつか失う命なら
遣わず守る理由もない
咲かぬならばただ根を下ろして
ここで枯れるまで

差し伸べられたその手を払って
気だるい足で少しずつ前へ
それでも先に何かあるんだと
強く祈った

どうせいつか失う命なら
遣わず守る理由もない
花といえども時代の徒花(あだばな)
足掻け枯れるまで

ゆっくりと迫りくる終焉(おわり)を
乗り越える意思あればこそ
腐りゆくものを横目にして
道は続いていく
