Eden of the East: Paradise Lost – future nova

1 Comment

school food punishment, Eden of the East: Paradise Lost OP, future nova / after laughter

Part of the school food punishment lyrics project.

Note: I may revise after I see the movies, if the events disagree with my translation. I’m fairly confident that I got it right, though.

school food punishment brings us another great song for Eden of the East. Notice that they got the melody of “futuristic imagination” in there for a little about halfway into the song. The vocal delivery for the final verse is very cool.

On a related note, I’m very excited about the release of sfp’s first album, “amp-reflection,” on April 14. I’m looking forward to the new songs and the backing tracks. (Yay, I’ll finally be able to record myself singing “futuristic imagination”!)

future nova
Lyrics: Uchimura Yumi
Composition: school food punishment, Eguchi Ryou
Arrangement: Eguchi Ryou

I blend in with the crowd. My senses come apart.
Inside the transparent darkness, I’m free to be oppressed.
It can’t end like this. The future that we longed for isn’t in my grasp.
The escape route beckons me. Shaking my head, I started running.

Right now, let’s spin the roulette. Yeah, let’s gamble on the tomorrow we haven’t seen yet.
Take a deep breath and change the wind’s direction!

Unable to wait for a dream so elaborate that we won’t wake up, my heart is clamoring for tomorrow.
If the the match isn’t over yet, I’ll make my stand any number of times.
On to the future you want to be reborn in! Now, wave goodbye to yesterday!

If you’ve thrown away everything, your wish won’t disappear.
What were you afraid of? We’ll just obtain it later.

When you clap me on the shoulder, I get worn away and become smaller,
But I’m sure that the core that remains in me will shine brighter than anything.

At this point, we can still make it in time, so if we could say that the deep darkness was something chosen,
We can call the tomorrow that was emptied out a new beginning.
On to the future you want to be reborn in! Now, wave goodbye to yesterday!

Ah, right now, the wind blows along. Inside my body, a replacement for the morning comes.

Unable to wait for an elaborate dream we won’t wake up from, my heart is clamoring for tomorrow.
If the the match isn’t over yet, I’ll make my stand any number of times.
We can keep wishing and move on forward. Now, take the hand of the future!

The winner who repeatedly questioned and answered himself strained his eyes to look into the distance.
In the aimless tomorrow, on the other side of the darkness, I saw a wheel of light.
I’m sure the future that starts from here is something fragile –
There will be a time when it’ll become empty and split open.
When that time comes, I’ll shuffle again and pick another card – I’ll show you that.

Hitogomi ni mazerareteku   kankaku ga hodoketeku
Toumei na yami no naka   jiyuu de fujiyuu da
Kono mama owarenai   machikogareta mirai wa tsukandenai
Nigemichi ga temaneite iru   kubi futte hashiridashita

Ima sugu ni ruuretto   mawashite   sou   mada minu asu ni kakeyou
Ookiku iki wo sutte   kazemuki kaete

Samenai kurai chimitsu na yume wo   matenai kurai   kokoro zawameku ashita wo
Mada owattenai shoubu nara   nando datte idomeru
Umarekawatte   hoshii mirai e   ima   kinou ni te wo futte

Subete wo suteta tte   negai wa naku naranai
Nani wo kowagatteta nda   ato wa te ni ireru dake

Kata ga butsukaru tabi ni boku wa kezurete chiisaku naru
Demo nokoru kaku wa kitto   nani yori hikatteru

Ima nara mada ma ni au kara   kurai fukai yami mo eranda to ietara
Karappo ni natta ashita datte   hajimari to yoberu
Umarekawatte   hoshii mirai e   ima   kinou ni te wo futte

Aa   ima   kaze wa fuiteru   karada no naka   irekawaru asa ga kuru

Samenai chimitsu na yume wo   matenai kurai   kokoro zawameku ashita wo
Mada owattenai shoubu nara   nando datte idomeru
Negau mama susunde ikeru   ima   mirai no te wo totte

Kurikaeshiteta jimonjitou no shousha wa   kanata ni me   korashita
Ate no nai asu   yami no mukou ni   hikari no wa ga mieta
Kore kara hajimaru mirai   kitto moroku tte
Karappo ni natte hajikeru koto mo aru tte
Sono toki ga kita tte mata betsu no kaado kitte   tsukande miseru

人混みに混ぜられてく 感覚がほどけてく
透明な闇の中 自由で不自由だ
このまま終われない 待ち焦がれた未来は掴んでない
逃げ道が手招いている 首振って走り出した

今すぐにルーレット 回して そう まだ見ぬ明日に賭けよう
大きく息を吸って 風向き変えて

醒めないくらい緻密な夢を 待てないくらい 心ざわめく明日を
まだ終わってない勝負なら 何度だって挑める
生まれ変わって 欲しい未来へ 今 昨日に手を振って

全てを捨てたって 願いはなくならない
何を怖がってたんだ 後は手に入れるだけ

肩がぶつかる度に僕は削れて小さくなる
でも残る核はきっと 何より光ってる

今ならまだ間に合うから 暗い深い闇も選んだと言えたら
空っぽになった明日だって 始まりと呼べる
生まれ変わって 欲しい未来へ 今 昨日に手を振って

あぁ 今 風は吹いてる 体の中 入れ替わる朝が来る

醒めない緻密な夢を 待てないくらい 心ざわめく明日を
まだ終わってない勝負なら 何度だって挑める
願うまま進んでいける 今 未来の手を取って

繰り返してた自問自答の勝者は 彼方に目 凝らした
当てのない明日 闇の向こうに 光の輪が見えた
これから始まる未来 きっと脆くって
空っぽになって弾けることもあるって
その時が来たってまた別のカード切って 掴んでみせる
