TEAM LEVIATHAN CHRONICLE, Owari no Chronicle image song, GET SET; collected in AHEAD
Requested by McWhite.
Copy/pasting disclaimer: I have yet to read Owari no Chronicle (seriously, it is a huge and complicated series), but I intend to someday, so if I missed anything due to lack of knowledge of the source, I will come back here and fix.
For this song in particular, the structure was pretty tricky. Warning: a few sentences span multiple verses, in case it isn’t clear.
Even with my lack of knowledge of the novel’s story, even though I’m not totally sure I interpreted everything correctly, I found the lyrics quite beautiful.
Note: At several points in the song, namely the first line of the first chorus, 未来 (mirai, “future”) is sung as あす (asu, “tomorrow”).
Composition / Arrangement: onoken
Lyrics / Vocals: Misawa Aki
Error, a road where you do not look back for the sound of any calling voice.
I can hear a shout assembling the fragments, coming from far away.
As my heart runs and overtakes even the flowing wind,
I wait beyond the end for the horizon.
With no fear of being hurt,
Continuing to run
To the destination of the promise, embracing pain,
