Burial ~Dear knows~
original: ピュアヒューリーズ～心の在処 [Pure Furies ~ Whereabouts of the Heart]
from: 東方紺珠伝 ~ Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom
lyrics: 天音未優 (Amane Myu)
album: 伝奏 -デンソウ-
circle: C-CLAYS/K2 SOUND
Comment from Amane Myu:
For C-CLAYS to be able to keep its activities for over ten years now is all thanks to everyone. “Densou” was created with the feelings of wanting to go through the past ten years of activity and having new encounters together with everyone.
Furthermore, she recommends listeners to not listen to “densou” and “shinai” seperately, but to listen to them together on shuffle, since she was unable to express everything with just one album!
This is not the typical Junko song, because her anger is not a topic at all. This song is about her successful recovery from the events that led to her going insane.
- 兎角 (tokaku) [Rabbit Horns] is a metaphora for something that is actually impossible – like a rabbit having horns.
- The Lunarians and also Junko have a strong connection to kegare (impurity) and kegarenaki or junsui (not impure/purity). As ZUN stated in her official profile: “She herself is a being purified by her resentment.”
fujouri na yume ni miserarete
kairi shita kono sekai
I’m mesmerized by my absurd dreams.
They estranged me from this world.
itsu no koto deshou.
itami kara nukedasu saku sagashi
Just when did it happen?
I seek the plan that snuck out from my mourning.
予感 ――― 誰かのあなたを
tebanasu ni wa osokute machi uketeru mirai
kore wa batsu na no ka? kasumu kioku
yokan ――― dareka no anata o
I’m late to letting go, yet I anticipate the future.
Is this my punishment? My memories grow hazy.
A premonition ――― Of you, who I don’t know yet.
hayaku satte yo tokaku tsuki o mite
yamanai kokoro e namonaki kanjou
kegare naki omoide dake karadajuu kakemawatte
kuroi kizu yo, hikari ni kaware toutoku
aa, sorera wa kansou genjitsu.
Pass already! I gaze at the impossible moon.
Nameless sensations enter my unsick heart.
Only pure memories run around the inside of my body.
Black wound, you’re so precious when you change to light.
Ah, all these are a simulation.
hitori aruki shita uwasa dake
It was a mere rumour I walked alone.
They beckoned me with scornful laughter.
dare no mono deshou.
unasarete nandomo iki o tome
I wonder whom it belongs to.
My breath stops whenever I dream bad.
堕ちる ――― 次なる私へ
kirei ni kiete tokeru katakuna na jashin ga
kara o yaburisute koko de umare
ochiru ――― tsuginaru watashi e
My stubborn, wicked heart melts away completely.
It tears open its shell and throws it away, being born here.
I fall ――― Towards the next me.
kanashii, hontou wa ano sora no uso ni
kyou mo honrou sare kyozou enjite iru
umaranai soushitsukan mushibanda waruagaki wa
doko darou to, tsuienu kizu no sakebi
aa, kono yo wa esoragoto no you
It’s pathetic, but the truth is I let the heavenly lie
Toy with me another day. I’m acting as virtual image.
This feeling of loss won’t be buried. My useless struggle gnawed at me.
“Where is it now?” My invincible wound screams.
Ah, this world seems to be pure fiction.
ikudo, sugitemo usurete iku nara
umaku susumezu kage ni kogareteru
kegare naki tsuioku nado eien ni houmurisaru
ue mo shita mo wakarazu tonde yuku wa
aa, gyakuten. kasou genjitsu.
No matter how often it passes or if it becomes dim,
I can’t advance properly. A phantom yearns for me.
This pure nostalgia will be buried eternally.
I take flight without knowing where’s up and down.
Ah, an inversion. The cremation of reality.
