Yanagi Nagi – Qualia

1 Comment

Yanagi Nagi, euaru

Sometimes, I feel like most of the songs I work on are very lyrically simple, all expressing similar emotions with straightforward structure. I do enjoy it most of the time, but occasionally, I’ll come across songs that are less fixed, more subtle, like this one. It’s quite the stimulating experience to explore these, almost like examining a crystal from different angles, noting each facet.

Qualia
Lyrics, Music, Arrangement, Programming & All Other Instruments: yanaginagi
Piano: Shin Kono

The feel of mixing, bittersweet sugar…
I forget their significance.
Meaningless characters on the decorative grip.
The boundless unknown.

I rely on all that I can see.
Even if things I can’t see
Are there,
It’s same as if they weren’t.
It makes no difference.

Afraid of facing the light,
I protected my burnt toes by burying them in the cool sand.

With its distant future split in two,
I shall now leave this heart of mine in your care.
My repeating, impatient breaths are nurturing a world that has light.

The jumping sound of my heart, an inverted teardrop,
A flickering presence,
Hurrying heartbeat, a sabre thrusting forward,
The blessed path.

If we are drawn to that which has shape
And fail to notice the wind,
Then it’s the same as throwing it away.
It makes no difference.

Hating the juxtaposition,
I run, entranced, to a unique place, and then I’m out of breath.

My filtered body is left behind, and the two narrow, intertwined threads come apart.
When I look down, I see inorganic remains,
Enveloped in shadows of profound mystery.

Diffusing voices.
I know not the pain of exposing my chilled toes to the outside.
If my fear of everything, my hidden weakness,
Will only crouch close to my cast-off shell…

With its distant future split in two,
I shall now leave this heart of mine in your care.
The unraveled threads twist together,
Engraving their memories on each other in the same way.

With its distant future split in two,
I shall now leave this heart of mine in your care.
My repeating, impatient breaths are nurturing a world that has light.

Mazaru shitsukan   horonigai satou
Igi wo wasureteku
Kazaru temoto ni wa muimi no moji
Saigai nai michi

Mieru subete wo shinrai shiteru
Mienai mono nara
Ite mo
Inai koto to dougi deshou
Nani mo chigawanai

Kagetomo wo osore
Yaketa tsumasaki wo tsumetai sunaba ni hitashite mamotta

Tooi mirai futatsu ni sakeru kono kokoro
Ima azukeyou
Kurikaeshi hayaru kokyuu ga hikari aru sekai wo sodateteru

Haneru shin’on   urahara no rarumu
Meimetsu suru kehai
Aseru shinpaku  tsukitateru saaburu
Saiwai naru michi

Katachi aru koto ni me wo hikarete
Kaze ni kidzukanai no nara
Suteru koto to dougi deshou
Nani mo chigawanai

Heichi wo kiratte
Tokui na basho made muchuu de kakete wa iki wo kiraseteru

Furuwareta karada nokosare   hodoketeku hosoi futakoito
Mioroseba mukishitsu no ato
Shin’ou no kage ni oowarete yuku

Kakusan suru koe
Hieta tsumasaki wo sotogawa ni sarasu itami wo shiranai
Nani mo kamo osore   kakureta yowasa wa
Nukegara no soba de uzukumaru dake nara

Tooi mirai futatsu ni sakeru kono kokoro
Ima azukeyou
Hodokareta ito wa yorisou
Onaji you ni kioku ni kizamiatte

Tooi mirai futatsu ni sakeru kono kokoro
Ima azukeyou
Kurikaeshi hayaru kokyuu ga hikari aru sekai wo sodateteru

混ざる質感 ほろ苦い砂糖
意義を忘れてく
飾る手元には無意味の文字
際涯ない未知

見える全てを信頼してる
見えないものなら
居ても
居ないことと同義でしょう
何も違わない

影面を恐れ
焼けた爪先を冷たい砂場に浸して守った

遠い未来2つに裂けるこの心
今預けよう
繰り返し逸る呼吸が光ある世界を育ててる

跳ねる心音 裏腹のラルム
明滅する気配
焦る心拍 突き立てるサーブル
幸いなる道

形あることに目を惹かれて
風に気づかないのなら
捨てることと同義でしょう
何も違わない

並置を嫌って
特異な場所まで夢中で駆けては息を切らせてる

篩われた体残され 解けてく細い双子糸
見下ろせば無機質の蹟
深奥の影に覆われていく

拡散する声
冷えた爪先を外側に晒す痛みを知らない
何もかも恐れ 隠れた弱さは
抜け殻のそばでうずくまるだけなら

遠い未来2つに裂けるこの心
今預けよう
解かれた糸は撚り添う
同じように記憶に刻み合って

遠い未来2つに裂けるこの心
今預けよう
繰り返し逸る呼吸が光ある世界を育ててる
