Mami Kawada – CLIMAX

Mami Kawada, LINKAGE

I don’t really get this song, so translation may be iffy. Then again, it might not be telling a clear story in the first place – I just did my best to make it sound as cool as possible, and that may well have been fine, haha.

CLIMAX
Lyrics: Mami Kawada
Music: Tomoyuki Nakazawa
Arrangement: Tomoyuki Nakazawa, Takeshi Ozaki
Vocals: Mami Kawada

Slowly, I stepped deep into a puzzling growth.
Don’t worry. Look behind – scars of deeply cut wounds.

【It approaches behind me. I turned around and looked.
‘Is somebody there?’Like reciting.
No one is here, yes, there was no one.
Only you know. There is the fear in your heart.】

What do you see? The place you imagined? I got excited.
I was possessed by the demon called the climax. End…
If you can’t bring it back, then there’s nothing to do but go on, right?
If I stand at the summit, the path can open.

For a long time, this swelled climax has been nurtured.
In the long night, they crowded in, making small sounds of growing.

【While nobody knows it, they crowded in.
At what do you aim? There is no answer.
While nobody knows it, they crowded in.
Only trees know, secret progress】

What do you feel? Your face looks satisfied,
Gazing at the entirety of what you wanted to know, so grandly confident.
It pervades even the places where no light shines.
A filled power sleeps.

Yes, if I don’t break the tension I’ve jumped into now, I won’t reach the next one.

What do you do? Prostrate yourself before the end that should come?
The perfect chance – beyond here, there waits a Big wave.
“There’s nothing beyond this.” You said it so often.
Break out of the saturated shell, and from there…

CLIMAX
Lyrics: Kawada Mami
Music: Nakazawa Tomoyuki
Arrangement: Nakazawa Tomoyuki, Ozaki Takeshi

Slowly fumiireta   nazomeku gunsei no oku e
Don’t worry. furikaette   fukaku kizanda kizu no ato

【It approaches behind me. furikaetta
‘Is somebody there?’Like reciting.
No one is here. sou inakatta
Only you know. There is the fear in your heart.】

What do you see? omoiegaiteta Place? takabutta
Zecchou to iu akuma ni toritsukareteta   End…
Hikikaesenai nara yuku shika nai nja nai no?
Chouten tateba hirakeru

Long time tsuchikatte   fukureagatta kyokusou wa
Long night hishimeita   bibitaru seichou no ne age

【While nobody knows it. hishimeita
At what do you aim? There is no answer.
While nobody knows it. hishimeita
Only trees know, secret progress】

What do you feel? manzokuge na Face
Shiritakatta zentaizou nagamete   takaraka ni confident
Hikari sasanai basho ni koso minagitta
Mitasareta chikara nemuru

Masa ni ima tobikomu kinpaku wo kowasanakya   tsugi ni wa mou todokanai

What do you do? kuru beku hate ni hireshita?
Zekkou no chansu wa kono saki ni aru Big wave
“Kore ijou wa nai.” Yoku itta mon da yo ne
Houwa shita kara buchinuite   And from there…

編曲:中沢伴行,尾崎武士
歌:川田まみ

Slowly踏み入れた 謎めく群生の奥へ
Don’t worry.振り返って 深く刻んだ傷の跡

【It approaches behind me. 振り返った
‘Is somebody there?’Like reciting.
No one is here. そう居なかった
Only you know. There is the fear in your heart.】

What do you see?思い描いてたPlace?高ぶった
絶頂と言う悪魔にとり憑かれてた End…
引き返せないなら行くしかないんじゃないの?
頂点立てば拓ける

Long time培って 膨れあがった極相は
Long nightひしめいた 微々たる成長の音あげ

【While nobody knows it. ひしめいた
At what do you aim? There is no answer.
While nobody knows it. ひしめいた
Only trees know, secret progress】

What do you feel?満足げなFace
知りたかった全体像眺めて 高らかにconfident
光射さない場所にこそ漲った
満たされた力眠る

まさに今飛び込む緊迫を壊さなきゃ 次にはもう届かない

What do you do?来るべく果てにひれ伏した?
絶好のチャンスはこの先にあるBig wave
「これ以上はない。」よく言ったもんだよね
飽和した殻ぶち抜いて And from there…
