Jormungand Perfect Order – Laterality

Leave a comment

Yanagi Nagi, Jormungand Perfect Order ED

Song is pretty meh, but the piano part is growing on me.

The perspectives in this song are tricky, so I’m not entirely confident with this one. Feel like I’m saying stuff like that for all of the songs I’ve been doing lately, but oh well.

Laterality
Lyrics: Yanagi Nagi
Music & Arrangement: Fujita Junpei (Elements Garden)

The lamenting voices are a mist you leave behind.
You’re creating a country for yourself alone.

Hey, tell me,
What color is your half of the world?
What is it like there?

Layering on the paint from a palette no one can see,
You’re laughing as you repaint even words.

Why,
Why can’t I read even the outskirts of your heart, when I’m so close?
If the feelings won’t match no matter how much I wish for it,
Hurry up and take half of me.

“As the masses shun me from a distance,
I ran into the country that is mine alone.

The roots of my heart that hang down in the sky take in every drop of rain,
Nurturing a transparent flower.

A constant pile of coincidences that no one can see –
Because humans have dubbed such things ‘miracles’,

We don’t have the courage to open the box that encloses the screams that were left behind.
I want to dissolve into the sky like this and cling to this gentle connection.”

As you hid the momentary lie away,
You sunk yourself to the bottom.
With field of vision continuing only to the right,
I begin to walk down the corridor of eternity.

In this endless, lively parade of memories,
Longing, pity, and scorn all mix together.

Why,
Why did the fork in road come before I was even born?
God,
Please don’t make me be aware.
Our feelings won’t become one, will they?
I want to be by your side
And catch hold of your deeply ingrained judgment.
If I can’t see the same world
No matter how much I wish to,
I want to become half of you.

Raterariti
Lyrics: Yanagi Nagi
Music & Arrangement: Fujita Junpei (Elements Garden)

Nageku koe wa kasumi   okizari ni
Kimi wa kimi dake no kuni wo tsukutteru

Nee oshiete
Hanbun no sekai wa donna iro de
Donna nioi ga shite iru no

Dare ni mo mienai paretto   e no gu kasanete
Kimi wa kotoba sae nurikaete waratte iru

Doushite
Soba ni ite mo kokoro no hashi de sura yomitorenai
Konna ni nozondete mo   onaji kimochi ni narenai nara
Hayaku katahou wo ubatte

“Kemutagaru muragari   toomaki ni
Boku wa boku dake no kuni ni nigekonda

Sora ni shidaru kokoro no ne   ametsubu wo subete hami
Toumei na hana wo sodateru

Dare ni mo mienai guuzen   zutto kasanete
Hito wa sonna no wo kiseki da to nadzuketa kara

Nokoshita himei wo tojikomeru hako wo   hiraku yuuki mo nai
Kono mama chuu ni tokete   yasashii tsunagari ni sugaritai”

Isshun no uso wo kakushikitta mama
Kimi wa kimi wo soko ni shizumeta
Tsudzuku migi dake no shikai
Eien no kairou wo arukidasu

Owari no nai nigiyaka na kioku no pareedo
Akogare awaremi azakeri ga mazatte iru

Doushite
Wakaremichi ga umareru yori motto mae nante
Kamisama
Kidzukasenai de
Onaji kimochi ni narenai deshou
Soba ni itai
Fukaku karamu shiryo wo tsumitotte
Konna ni negattete mo
Onaji sekai ga mienai nara
Kimi no hanbun ni naritai

ラテラリティ
作詞:やなぎなぎ
作曲・編曲:藤田淳平

嘆く声は霞み 置き去りに
君は君だけの国を創ってる

ねえ教えて
半分の世界はどんな色で
どんな匂いがしているの

誰にも見えないパレット 絵の具重ねて
君は言葉さえ塗りかえて笑っている

どうして
そばにいても心の端ですら読み取れない
こんなに望んでても 同じ気持ちになれないなら
早く片方を奪って

「煙たがる群がり 遠巻きに
僕は僕だけの国に逃げ込んだ

空に垂る心の根 雨粒を全て食み
透明な花を育てる

誰にも見えない偶然 ずっと重ねて
人はそんなのを奇跡だと名付けたから

残した悲鳴を閉じ込める箱を 開く勇気も無い
このまま宙に溶けて 優しい繋がりに縋りたい」

一瞬の嘘を隠し切ったまま
君は君を底に沈めた
続く右だけの視界
永遠の廻廊を歩き出す

終わりのない賑やか記憶のパレード
憧れ哀れみ嘲りが混ざっている

どうして
分かれ道が生まれるよりもっと前なんて
神様
気づかせないで
同じ気持ちになれないでしょう
そばにいたい
深く絡む思慮を摘み取って
こんなに願ってても
同じ世界が見えないなら
君の半分になりたい
