Nabari no Ou – CRAWL

VELTPUNCH, Nabari no Ou OP

This is one of my favorite openings ever. The almost lonely desperation in the lyrics is very fitting for the series, and I resonated. I love the tune, and the male and female voices harmonize perfectly.

CRAWL
Lyrics / Composition: Naganuma Hidenori
Performance: VELTPUNCH

Advancing as though crawling along the ground,
I repeat my mediocre ascent.
My fate has been engraved, but I take only a deep breath.
I knew it wasn’t enough.
Those days that seemed as though I would be crushed by the thunderous sound,
Even the rain stopped, and then you came.

Sha la la    I sing for you
Sha la la

A faded eternity is a “symbol of boredom,” meaningless,
Like a pool that was made on the bottom of the sea.
The water’s surface, painted in swirls, reflects the sky that is too high.
If you joke, make it when I can understand.

Sha la la    I sing for you
Sha la la    fight for myself
Sha la la    I sing for you
Sha la la

I can’t take this “boredom” anymore.

The courage to strike back on the stage where I stood still –
I don’t care, I don’t care
Would you laugh at my mere “existence”?
The scenery that passed by at the pace I ran –
I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care
Would you go to check if it’s all right or not?

The truth I knew for the first time in the goal that I struggled with –
I don’t care, I don’t care
Would you feel it if tomorrow comes?
Even the distorted atmosphere of the March that fell away –
I don’t care, I don’t care…
Going up the thirteen steps,
They’ll be waiting for your hands.
If it’s a new start from today where I knew pain,
I’ll be there, I’ll be there, I’ll be there.

The muttered regrets cling to your hands.
For whose sake do you swing the sword you sharpened?

CRAWL
Lyrics / Composition: Naganuma Hidenori

Chi wo hau you ni susunde wa
Heibon na joushou kurikaesu
Kizamareta unmei datte   Tada shinkokyuu
Tarinai no wa wakatteita
Gouon ni tsubusaresou na hibi
Hari no you na ame mo yande kimi ga kita

Sha la la I sing for you
Sha la la

Iroaseta eien wa “taikutsu no shouchou” imi mo naku
Umi no soko ni tsukurareta puuru mitai da
Uzu wo egaku suimen ni takasugiru sora ga utsuru
Joudan nara wakaru you na toki ni shite

Sha la la I sing for you
Sha la la fight for myself
Sha la la I sing for you
Sha la la

“Taikutsu” wa mou genkai desu.

Tachitsukushita suteeji de nagurikaesu yuuki
I don’t care I don’t care
“Sonzai” sae mo kimi wa warau kana…
Hashiridashita peesu de nagaretetta fuukei
I don’t care I don’t care I don’t care
Tadashii ka dou ka wo tashikame ni yuku no desu ka?

Tadoritsuita gooru de hajimete shitta shinjitsu
I don’t care I don’t care
Ashita ni nareba kimi mo kidzuku kana…
Hagareochita sangatsu no hizumi kitta kuuki mo
I don’t care I don’t care
Going up the 13steps
They’ll be waiting for your hands
Itami wo shitta kyou kara ga atarashii sutaato nara
I’ll be there I’ll be there I’ll be there

Tsubuyaita koukai wa kimi no te ni kobiritsuku
Togisumashita yaiba wo tagatameni furu no desu ka?

CRAWL
詩 / 曲 : 長沼秀典

地を這うように進んでは
平凡な上昇繰り返す
刻まれた運命だって ただ深呼吸
足りないのは分かっていた
轟音に潰されそうな日々
針のような雨も止んで君が来た

Sha la la I sing for you
Sha la la

色褪せた永遠は 「退屈の象徴」 意味も無く
海の底に作られたプールみたいだ
渦を描く水面に高すぎる空が映る
冗談なら分かるような時にして

Sha la la I sing for you
Sha la la fight for myself
Sha la la I sing for you
Sha la la

「退屈」 はもう限界です。

立ち尽くしたステージで殴り返す勇気
I don’t care  I don’t care
「存在」 さえも君は笑うかな…
走り出したペースで流れてった風景
I don’t care  I don’t care  I don’t care
正しいかどうかを確かめに行くのですか?

辿り着いたゴールで初めて知った真実
I don’t care I don’t care
明日になれば君も気づくかな…
剥がれ落ちた三月の歪みきった空気も
I don’t care I don’t care
Going up the 13steps
They’ll be waiting for your hands
痛みを知った今日からが新しいスタートなら
I’ll be there I’ll be there I’ll be there

呟いた後悔は君の手にこびり付く
研ぎ澄ました刃を誰が為に振るのですか?
