Yanagi Nagi – halo effect

Yanagi Nagi, c/w Jormungand ED Ambivalentidea

Amazing song.

halo effect
Lyrics: yanaginagi
Music & Arrangement: Masahiro Tobinai

When I try to gather the light, it escapes.
The little distortions no longer appear in my vision.

The world turns inside out;
I feel as light as air.
Who will create me?

The nest of memories crumbles from underneath my feet.
The shell that it was protecting is breaking into pieces.
The people on the other side of the narrow light
Are just like me, are just like you.

A weight not present in the flying letters.
Without even realizing, my hands have been dyed so deeply.

Sweeping, chasing eyes turn to nerve signals.
Who will erase me?
The foundations of logic come apart;
There’s not enough oxygen anymore;
No one knows what to do.

who are you?
who am I?

What will the released hopes illuminate,
As the dreams I longed for are disassembled?
If I’m returning to being mere numbers,
I’ll wait here once more.

The fractured memories
Are all being overwritten
To an even better image,

But

The people on the other side of the light
Are just like me, are just like you.

Lyrics: yanaginagi

Hikari atsumete wa nigashite
Chiisana yugami sura mou me ni wa utsuranaku naru

Uragaeru sekai
Kuuki no you ni karui
Dare ga watashi wo tsukuru?

Ashimoto kara kuzureru kioku no su
Mamorarete ita kara wa kudakechitteku
Hosoi hikari no mukou ni iru hito wa
Watashi to onaji   anata to onaji

Tobikau moji ni wa nai ueito
Itsu no ma ni konna ni te ni shimitsuite ita nda

Nagareou hitomi   shinkei shingou e
Dare ga watashi wo keseru?
Hakuri suru rogosu
Sanso wa mou tarinai
Dare mo shiru sube wa nai

who are you?
who am I?

Hanatareru kibou wa nani wo terasu
Akogarete ita yume wa bunkai sarete
Tada no suuji ni modotte iku nara
Watashi wa koko de   mou ichido matou

Hibiwareta omoide wa
Subete uegaki sareru
Yori yoi imeeji e to

Keredo

Hikari no mukou ni iru hito wa
Watashi to onaji   anata to onaji

halo effect
作詞:やなぎなぎ
作曲・編曲:飛内将大

光集めては逃がして
小さな歪みすらもう目には映らなくなる

裏返る世界
空気のように軽い
誰が私をつくる?

足元から崩れる記憶の巣
守られていた殻は砕け散ってく
細い光の向こうにいる人は
私と同じ あなたと同じ

飛び交う文字には無いウエイト
いつの間にこんなに手に染みついていたんだ

流れ追う瞳 神経信号へ
誰が私を消せる?
剥離するロゴス
酸素はもう足りない
誰も知る術は無い

who are you?
who am I?

放たれる希望は何を照らす
憧れていた夢は分解されて
ただの数字に戻っていくなら
私はここで もう一度待とう

罅割れた思い出は
すべて上書きされる
より良いイメージへと

けれど

光の向こうにいる人は
私と同じ あなたと同じ

One thought on “Yanagi Nagi – halo effect

  1. <3 Nagi <3
    You should totally try the album "tachyon" from mamenoi (MANYO x Yanagi Nagi) it is truely amazing! I would wish for someone to translate the story that that lays buried within the lyrics alongside this lyrics paper that comes along with the cd… But I guess I will have to learn japanese before I will be able to understand this.
    I could provide you with scans if it is interesting enough for you though…
