Soshite kono sora akaku somete mata kuru toki kono mi de susumu dake
Surechigatteiku 'hito' mo magirenakushita 'mono' mo
Itsuka wa kieyuku toki
Atsuku yurugasu 'tsuyosa' hakanaku yureru 'yowasa'
Shosen onaji mirai
Son'na nichijō kōka o tokashi arawareru hi kureru sekai
Kaze ni nabikase sen o hiite nagareru yona kamisaki teki o sasu
Furikitta omoi minagiru yume
Subete wa ima kono te de shimei hatashite yuku dake
Mata hi ga hitotsu otosare sotto dokokade kieta
Genjitsu kawaranu hibi
Dakedo tashikani kanjiru kimi no nukumori kodō
Kore mo shinjitsu da to
Soshite kurenai kōjin o maki yūhi o se ni ima hajimaru sā
Naze takanaru kokoro ni mayoi tomadoi kanjiru no
Hayaku itazura ni abaredasu itami kowashite
Sora ni nijinda yaketa kumo wa uchi ni himeta negai ga kogashiteru
Tameratta hitomi ukabu namida demo ashita no chikara ni kaete
Subete sasagete maiorita chi saeru yaiba hitotsu de yami o kiru
Itsudatte mune no oku no hikari matatakasete
Kono mi de shimei hatashite yuku made
そして この空 赤く染めて また来る時 この
風になびかせ 線を引いて 流れるよな髪先 敵を刺す
すべては今 この手で 使命 果たしてゆくだけ
また灯が一つ 落とされ そっとどこかで 消えた
だけど確かに感じる 君の温もり 鼓動
なぜ 高鳴る心に 迷い戸惑い 感じるの
早く いたずらに暴れだす 痛み 壊して
空に滲んだ 焼けた雲は 内に秘めた願いが 焦がしてる
すべて捧げて 舞い降りた地 冴える刃一つで 闇を斬る
いつだって胸の 奥の光 瞬かせて
And so, dye this sky red, the time has come again, I only need to go forward with this body.
The 'people' who pass by and the 'things' that fade away,
Will one day be vanished time.
A passionately swaying 'strength' and a fleetingly swaying 'weakness',
In the end, they have the same future.
Those ordinary days dissolve the crimson mist, and the sun appears as the world goes crimson.
Flutter in the wind and draw a line, the flowing tips of my hair pierce the enemy.
The feelings slashed away, the overflowing dream,
Now is everything, I only need to carry out my mission with these hands.
Once again, a light has faded, secretly disappearing from somewhere,
That's reality, unchanging days.
But I definitely feel it, your warmth, your heartbeat,
This is the truth as well.
And so, it scatters a crimson cloud of dust and now starts with the evening sun behind it, come...
Why do I feel hesitation and confusion in my rapidly throbbing heart?
Hurry, destroy this pain which mischievously rages.
The scorched clouds blotting the sky are being burned by the wishes concealed within.
Tears well up in hesitant eyes, but change them into tomorrow's strength.
Offer up everything, in the place I have descended, with a single bright blade, I slice through the darkness.
Always flickering the light deep within my chest,
Until I carry out my mission with this body.
