Eden of the East: The King of Eden – light prayer

2 Comments

school food punishment, Eden of the East: The King of Eden ED

Part of the school food punishment lyrics project.

Note: I will probably revise this when I actually fully understand Eden of the East.

Uchimura-san, why do you write lyrics that are so hard for me to interpret? ;_;

…To make the song as great as it is, I guess, haha.

light prayer
Lyrics: Uchimura Yumi
Composition: school food punishment, Eguchi Ryou
Arrangement: Eguchi Ryou

Split the darkness we’re crawling through; strike the stagnation that lies within.

Calculation and maintenance are selfish rules. The facts are bending – eliminate your expectations.

I search for my true self, who’s gathering the buds of the future we must turn to.
I grab that hand to the tomorrow that light shines on, taking along my shadow.
I’m sure that in the cold and dark rain, someone is saving us,
So if we connect the parallel lines, they’ll become a wheel and change into light.

If I make a sound, I’ll slip away from the world. This mass of SOS calls exhausts me.

Reality and the future are so close they’re getting out of focus. I can still stretch out my hand, searching for the answer.

Inside the buds of the future we must turn to, if you try listening carefully,
They’re praying for light and waiting in a world we haven’t seen yet, softly carrying their unease.
I’m sure that even if I get tired someday and want to erase everything, your voice will call me back.

Hey, try looking closely. If the wind’s direction changes a little, the weather clears.
To the sign, to the tomorrow it points to, we can stagger on.
I’m sure that there’s a small light just past this distorted world.
It’s not an Eden where everything is granted, but you’re here.
The wind is gently pushing at my back. (Ah, my self from up until yesterday is pushing at my back.)
Yes, once we connect the ends of the parallel lines, they’ll become a wheel of light.

Cutting in here for a random note – one of the first things I noticed when I listened to the song was this:

From futuristic imagination:

君の呼吸を知るために 未来のを切っても構わない
Kimi no kokyuu wo shiru tame ni  mirai no ne wo kitte mo kamawanai
In order to know your ways, I don’t mind cutting the roots of the future.

From light prayer:

向かうべき未来の 摘んでいる正体 探し出して
Mukau beki mirai no me tsunde iru shoutai  sagashidashite
I search for my true self, who’s gathering the buds of the future we must turn to.

Lyrics: Uchimura Yumi

Arrangement: Eguchi Ryou

Ugomeite iru  yami wo watte  sono naka no yodomi wo bute

Keisan to hoshu  jibun katte na ruuru  yugande iru jijitsu  kitai wo shoukyo shite

Mukau beki mirai no me  tsunde iru shoutai  sagashidashite
Sono te wo tsukande  hikari no sasu asu e  kage mo tsureteku
Kitto  tsumetakute kurai ame datte  dareka sukutte iru kara
Heikousen wo tsunageba wa ni naru  hikari ni kaete

Oto wo tatete  zurete yuku sekai  SOS no mure  boku wo shoumou shite

Chikasugite boyaketa  genjitsu to mirai  mada te wo nobaseru  kotae wo sagashite

Mukau beki mirai no me  sono naka  mimi wo sumashite mireba
Mada minu sekai ni  hikari wo inotte matte iru  fuan mo sotto daite
Kitto itsuka tsukarete subete wo keshite shimaitaku natte mo  kimi no koe ga  boku wo yobimodosu

Hora  yoku mite mite  kazemuki sukoshi kawareba  hareru
Yajirushi no hou e  sore ga shimesu asu e  furatsuita tte yukeru
Kitto  ibitsu na sekai no sono saki  chiisana hikari ga aru
Subete ga kanau rakuen ja nakute mo  kimi ga koko ni iru
Kaze wa sotto  boku no senaka wo oshite iru (aa  kinou made no jibun ga  senaka wo oshite iru)
Sou  heikousen no saki wo tsunaida nara  hikari no wa ni naru

light prayer

蠢いている 闇を割って その中の澱みを打て

計算と保守 自分勝手なルール 歪んでいる事実 期待を消去して

向かうべき未来の芽 摘んでいる正体 探し出して
その手を掴んで 光の差す明日へ 影も連れてく
きっと 冷たくて暗い雨だって 誰か救っているから
平行線を繋げば輪になる 光に変えて

音を立てて ずれていく世界 SOSの群れ 僕を消耗して

近すぎてぼやけた 現実と未来 まだ手を伸ばせる 答えを探して

向かうべき未来の芽 その中 耳を澄ましてみれば
まだ見ぬ世界に 光を祈って待っている 不安もそっと抱いて
きっと いつか疲れて全てを消してしまいたくなっても 君の声が 僕を呼び戻す

ほら よく見てみて 風向き少し変われば 晴れる
矢印の方へ それが示す明日へ ふらついたって行ける
きっと 歪な世界のその先 小さな光がある
全てが叶う楽園じゃなくても 君がここにいる
風はそっと 僕の背中を押している(ああ 昨日までの自分が 背中を押している)
そう 平行線の先を繋いだなら 光の輪になる
