息回り

祝福の音が鳴り響く
不思議な煙に身を包んでいく
胎芽の夢を見ちゃった
目にシミが広がっている
叫び声も 不安の涙も
末日の今だけ
忘れさせて
 
生を唱え
世を唱え
繋いで 唱え
唱えなくちゃ
笑わなくちゃ
踊らなくちゃ
このまま滅びたくないんだ
産まれてきたんだ
意味も教えてくれる
この目に焼き尽くす
何よりも美しい
死骸を
 
鉛を飲んだように
目重くて
有限に呪われた
覚めない夢
無限の虚無に沈んでいる
僕ら あの世のどこへ
 
心を満たした
耳に満たした
口で満たした
人の誇りよ
どうか忘れないで
骨にも刻んで
未知に食いつぶされる前に
地が揺れている
空も遠くなって
絶命の歌を
悲鳴をかけて謳って
ああー
 
孕んで
生を孕め
祈りを孕め
口に種まいて
孕んで
声も孕んで
僕らを孕んだ
愛があった世界でした
跪き祈っている死者(ぼく)たちよ
始まりに戻る

Breathing Cycle

The sound of a blessing rings out
The mysterious smoke engulfs my body
Having a baby’s dream
The stains spreading to my eyes
Let me forget about
Your screams, and your tears from worry
Just for this last day
 
Letting this life sing
Letting this world sing
Connecting together, singing out
We’ve got to sing
We’ve got to laugh
We’ve got to dance
I don’t want to die out like this
We were born for a reason
Telling me that there’s also a reason
It burns through these eyes
More stunning than anything
The remains of our bodies
 
My eyes growing heavy
As if I swallowed lead
Finitely cursed
A dream I can’t wake up from
Forever sinking into nothingness
Where is our place in the afterlife?
 
Filled up my heart
Filled to my ears
Filled by my mouth
Please don’t ever forget
What our pride is
Etch it into your bones
Before you’ve been consumed completely by the unknown
The ground shakes
And the sky grows farther away
Crying out and chanting
These songs of death
Aah
 
To carry
Carrying life
Carrying wishes
Sowing seeds into my mouth
To carry
Carrying my voice
Carrying us
This world was filled with love
The deceased (us), praying while kneeling
Return back to the beginning
 
Thanks!
