Path to Aspirations and Corpses

Lyrics, Composition, & Arrangement: Revo

On that day, mankind recalled it

In the very dim light, all of the advancing shadows feel uneasy
An uncertain future always blooms on thin ice
Whenever we visited the night,
they gently stroked the back of our necks with cold hands over and over

Betraying the twilight, clinging to the back of a lit hope,
though we know we're heading towards the hell we chased after

If you want to see the next dream, then what can you present?
The demons murmured sweetly: Create a path with corpses
What's beyond these walls?
The truth I longed for in my younger days is right there
Beyond the path of corpses

A loop of mourning and malice repeating in the garden
At the end of the memories pouring in, we ask the meaning of freedom
Ah...the boys' abilities should've been full of possibilities,
but what did fate breathe into them?
Is it someone's dearest wish? Someone's dream?
Sorrow and hatred intersect,
and bright red arrows aim at one another
Humans, longing for the wings of birds, flap towards the sky
The demons murmured slyly: Oh corpses, follow the path
What is there beyond this sky?
We were imprisoned in our younger days
The light of the old days starts shining beyond the path of corpses

If we look from above the sky, just what would we be able to see?
We'd wanted to go somewhere that wasn't here
to the ends of the vast world we dreamt of in our younger days
Absurdity lurks so much I feel dizzy
The price of dreaming of freedom is a bed on cold earth
Sometimes borrowing the form of gods, justice bears its fangs
In the cage, outside the cage, are they equally Hell......?

The more we carry the weight of our sins, the more meaning there is in our feet that step forward
The demons murmured low: Advance on the path of corpses
What is there beyond this darkness?
When will the reality cursed in our younger days be rewarded?
Beyond the path of corpses
Tracks bright red impulses ran through
Scattering resignation for freedom
Even if we bundle the offered petals,
it's too early for the true dawn we offer
The sun still hasn't gone down

So we'll keep advancing beyond the waves...
Shoukei to Shikabane no Michi

憧憬と屍の道

作詞・作曲・編曲:Revo

あの日人類は思い出した

薄闇の中進む影は 誰も心許なく
不確かな未来はいつだって 薄氷の上に咲く
夜は訪れる度に幾度も
冷たい手で俺たちの首筋を 優しく撫でた

黄昏を裏切って 灯る希望の背に縋り
追いかけた 地獄へと 向かってるとしても

夢の続きが見たいなら お前は何を差し出せる?
悪魔は甘く囁いた 屍で道を作れ
この壁の向こうに何がある?
幼き日々に憧れた 真実はすぐそこにある
屍の道の先に

箱庭で繰り返す 悼みと恨みのループ
流れ込む記憶の果て 自由の意味を問う
嗚呼…可能性に満ちていた筈の
少年達の器に 運命は其々 何を吹き込んだ
それは 誰の悲願か 誰の夢か
悲しみ 憎しみが交わって
紅蓮の矢は互いを目指す
鳥の翼に憧れた 人は空へと羽ばたける
悪魔は狡く嘯いた 屍よ道を辿れ
この空の向こうに何がある?
幼き日々に囚われた
昔日の灯が照らし出す 屍の道の先を

空の上から見たら 一体何が見えるのだろう
ここではない何処かへ 行ってみたかった
幼き日々に夢見た 広い世界の果てには
目眩を覚えるほど 不条理が潜む
自由を夢見た代償は 冷たい土のベッド
時に神の姿借りて 正義は牙を剥く
檻の中も檻の外も 等しく地獄か……。

罪の重さを背負うほど 踏み出す足に意味がある
悪魔は低く呟いた 屍の道を進め
この闇の向こうに何がある?
幼き日々に呪われた 現実はいつ報われる?
屍の道の先で
《紅蓮の衝動》が駆け抜けた軌跡
《自由の覚悟》を散らして
《捧げられた花弁》を束ねても
《手向ける真の暁》には早すぎる
太陽はまだ沈んでいないのだから

進み続ける 波の彼方へ…
