Last Alliance - Prometheus (English translation)

Japanese

Prometheus

遥か昔のギリシャの神話
信念を貫く勇者
全能\の独裁者に立ち向かう
正義のレジスタンス
 
\"先を知る能\力者\"は自らの悲しい末路を全て覚悟しながら
僕らの尊厳を守るため火を奪い処刑された
 
プロメテウス、あなたが僕らに与えた炎は
今姿を変えて争いを生み心に穴を開ける
変えたのは僕らだ
 
段差のない\"平\"らな身分や
一様で\"等\"しい思想
服従や対立が存在しないなんてのは理想郷
 
生きるために生まれた武器は利権を
ただ奪い合う道具に成り下がり
伝え合う言葉から生まれた思想が争いを生み
 
たった一つの希望も残されてないパンドラの箱を
抱える子供達が町じゅうに溢れるこの世界
を選択したんだ プロメテウス、あなたが
望んでいた未来を今、僕らは歩んでいますか?
 
極東の大地では戦闘機の音が鳴り響き
地雷踏み訳もわからず理不尽に殺されてく
 
過ちを犯して僕らが進む幾重のパラレルワールド
そこには暴\力を打ち消す希望があると信じたいんだ
プロメテウス、あなたが僕らに与えた炎で
少しでも正しき道を灯し明日も僕らは歩く

Prometheus

The Greek legend from times past
A warrior who upheld his beliefs
He who opposed the mighty dictator
The righteous Resistance.
 
"Those with foresight" prepared for their fate alone but
For our sanctity, we extinguished the flame
 
Prometheus, the flame you gave to us
Drills a hole in the heart that breeds war
We were the ones changed.
 
"Equality" without social differences and
An ideology of "equality" with uniformity
A utopia where disillusionment and confrontation don't exist
 
Weapons wielded to preserve life are
Reduced to mere tools in the struggle for rights
The ideology of mutual understanding gives way to war.
 
Even if not even hope is left inside Pandora's Box
Held by children who crowd the streets
Prometheus, you who chose this world,
Are we heading to the future you wanted?
 
In the lands of the East, the sound of fighter jets echo
Landmines kill without discrimination.
 
We are advancing towards multiple parallel worlds
There, I believe hope will drown out violence
Prometheus, with the flame you gave us
Today and tomorrow we will walk along the difficult path it lights
