F-Zero Falcon Densetsu – THE MEANING OF TRUTH

HIRO-X, F-Zero Falcon Densetsu OP

Some of you may know the series as “F-Zero GP Legend” (like the GBA game).

A few notes on the credits: Aoki Hiromitsu and HIRO-X are one and the same; I’m not completely sure if the composer’s name is pronounced “Takashi”.

I think this song was one of the most awesome instances of playing the OP during a climactic moment, right up there with, say, Gurren Lagann.

THE MEANING OF TRUTH
Lyrics: Aoki Hiromitsu
Composition / Arrangement: Nakayama Takashi
Vocals: HIRO-X

For what should I dream? Where should I turn?
How valuable is victory
That is won through betrayal or bargaining?

Even if the sun carries the contradiction that’s too great to ignore,
It still shines on the path to the future.

You strong and fleeting ones, lead these hands of mine,
If there’s a place that can be called truth.
Even if I’m confused and hurt, on the other side of this horizon,
There’s the answer I can’t see yet.

How much longer can I remain pure?
I’m hiding a shadow on the other side of my smile.
I don’t want to know ego any more than this.

History trembles with unbearable anger.
So that an episode of destruction isn’t engraved…

You fragile and sorrowful ones, cut open your skin to reach each of your hearts.
Even if we turn to ash, even if the end comes tomorrow,
Search for your fever now!

Even if the sun carries the contradiction that’s too great to ignore,
It still shines on the path to the future.

You strong and fleeting ones, lead these hands of mine,
If there’s a place that can be called truth.
Even if I’m confused and hurt, on the other side of this horizon,
There’s the answer I can’t see yet.
SEARCHING FOR THE TRUTH…

THE MEANING OF TRUTH
Lyrics: Aoki Hiromitsu
Composition / Arrangement: Nakayama Takashi

Bokura wa nani ni yume mite   doko e mukau beki na no ka
Uragiri ya kakehiki no naka   te ni shita
Shouri ni dore hodo   kachi ga aru no ka

Taiyou wa tachikirenu mujun wo kakaete mo
Mirai no yukue   terashitsudzukeru

Tsuyoku hakanaki mono yo   kono te wo hikimichibiite
Shinjitsu to yoberu basho ga aru nara
Tomadoi kizutsuite mo   kono chiheisen no mukou
Mada kotae wa mienai

Bokura wa ato dore kurai   junsui de ireru no darou
Egao no ura ni kage wo hisomete iru
Ego nado kore ijou   shiritaku wa nai

Rekishi ga yarikirenu ikari ni furue
Hametsu e no episoodo   kizamarenu you ni

Moroku kanashiki mono yo   hifu wo saki kokoro goto
Shinjitsu to yoberu ai de tsunagarou
Tatoe hai ni natte mo   asu ni owari ga kite mo
Ima   netsu wo motomete

Taiyou wa tachikireru mujun wo kakaete mo
Mirai no yukue   terashitsudzukeru

Tsuyoku hakanaki mono yo   kono te wo hikimichibiite
Shinjitsu to yoberu basho ga aru nara
Tomadoi kizutsuite mo   kono chiheisen no mukou
Mada kotae wa mienai
SEARCHING FOR THE TRUTH…

THE MEANING OF TRUTH
作詞:青木裕光
作曲・編曲:中山崇史
歌:HIRO-X

僕らは何に夢見て 何処へ向かうべきなのか
裏切りや駆け引きの中 手にした
勝利にどれ程 価値があるのか

太陽は断ち切れぬ矛盾を抱えても
未来の行方 照らし続ける

強く儚き者よ この手を引き導いて
真実と呼べる場所があるなら
戸惑い傷ついても この地平線の向こう
まだ答えは見えない

僕らはあとどれくらい 純粋でいれるのだろう
笑顔の裏に影を潜めている
エゴなどこれ以上 知りたくはない

歴史がやり切れぬ怒りに震え
破滅へのエピソード 刻まぬように

脆く悲しき者よ 皮膚を裂きココロごと
真実と呼べる愛で繋がろう
例え灰になっても 明日に終わりが来ても
今 熱を求めて

太陽は断ち切れぬ矛盾を抱えても
未来の行方 照らし続ける

強く儚き者よ この手を引き導いて
真実と呼べる場所があるなら
戸惑い傷ついても この地平線の向こう
まだ答えは見えない
SEARCHING FOR THE TRUTH…
