Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei – Super scription of data

Leave a comment

Eiko Shimamiya, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei OP

For this song, I translated the chorus with the intention to make the title line actually make sense.

Superscription of data
Lyrics: Eiko Shimamiya
Composition / Arrangement: Kazuya Takase
Vocals: Eiko Shimamiya

Shall I tell you?
In return, promise not to tell anyone else.
We’ll pinky swear; if it’s a lie, swallow a thousand needles.

Show me the folded, crawling story and spread it out before us.
Both the past and the future are
A Superscription of data.

When I was reborn, I was embedded in
A tinted crystal.
When the seven colors appear together,

The dazzling cycle of rebirth is cut apart with the prismatic sword,
And the shards of sadness are gone
From the Superscription of data.

Because you wish for it,
It will always be there.
If you alter it,
Everything will change
In the Superscription of data.

The dazzling cycle of rebirth is cut apart with the prismatic sword,
And the shards of sadness are gone
From the Superscription of data.

Super scription of data
Lyrics: Shimamiya Eiko
Composition / Arrangement: Takase Kazuya

Oshiemashou ka?
Sono kawari dare ni mo iwanai yakusoku shite ne
Yubikiri genman   uso   tsuitara hari senbon

Oritatamareta mama   ugomeite iru monogatari wo
Hirogete misete yo   kako mo mirai mo
Super scription of data

Umarekawaru tabi ni umekomareta
Iro no tsuita kurisutaru
Sono nanairo   subete   dasorotta toki

Mekurumeku rinne wa   purizumu no ken de tachikirarete
Kanashimi no kakera wa   mou doko ni mo nai
Super scription of data

Anata ga nozomu kara
Sore wa itsu datte soko ni aru
Anata ga kaeru nara
Subete ga kawaru
Super scription of data

Mekurumeku rinne wa   purizumu no ken de tachikirarete
Kanashimi no kakera wa   mou doko ni mo nai
Super scription of data

Super scription of data
作詞:島みやえい子
作・編曲:高瀬一矢
歌:島みやえい子

教えましょうか?
その代わり誰にも言わない約束してね
指切りげんまん 嘘 ついたら針千本

折りたたまれたまま 蠢いている物語を
ひろげてみせてよ 過去も未来も
Super scription of data

生まれ変わるたびに埋め込まれた
色のついたクリスタル
その七色 すべて 出そろった時

めくるめく輪廻は プリズムの剣で断ち切られて
悲しみのカケラは もうどこにも無い
Super scription of data

あなたが望むから
それはいつだってそこにある
あなたが変えるなら
すべてが変わる
Super scription of data

めくるめく輪廻は プリズムの剣で断ち切られて
悲しみのカケラは もうどこにも無い
Super scription of data
