Dear Marionette || Risa Yuzuki/Luminaria

Dear Marionette

music/lyrics: かぼちゃ (Kabocha)
vocals: Risa Yuzuki
album: Stellalude
circle: Luminaria

This is my favorite track of Yuzurisa’s first original album. I was hyped for it since the day she uploaded a preview of it on her Twitter and the full version doesn’t disappoint! The other songs on the album are extremely good too, so I’ll definitely try to translate all of it.

You can stream the album on all known streaming services or buy a digital copy on services like Google Play, Amazon or iTunes and I recommend you do that to support Risa Yuzuki and make future albums possible!


繰糸に任せ踊った 鮮やかな日々を焦がして
黒い羽広げ飛び去りましょう
kuriito ni makase odotta azayaka na hibi o kogashite
kuroi hane hiroge tobisarimashou

She danced while relying on a reeled thread, yearning for vibrant days.
So spread your black wings and fly away.

目も眩む月のライムライト 影さえも照らし従え
再誕を告げる鐘は響く
me mo kuramu tsuki no limelight kage sae mo terashi shitagae
saitan o tsugeru kane wa hibiku

The moon’s limelight blinds her eyes. Even the shadows are forcibly illuminated.
The bell announcing their rebirth reverberates.

観客のない人形劇 喜劇の舞台で泣くより
燃える闇に抱かれた 生まれ変わる
kankyaku no nai ningyougeki kigeki no butai de naku yori
moeru yami ni idakareta umarekawaru

This puppet show has no audience. Rather than crying on the stage of this comedy,
Have the scorching darkness embrace you and be reborn.

You got the life
Dear Marionette
Now Ashes to ashes
思うまま
omou mama

You got the life
Dear Marionette
Now Ashes to ashes
As you wish.

Time to die
Dear Marionette
For Wake up Wake up
踊りましょう
odorimashou

Time to die
Dear Marionette
For Wake up Wake up
You shall dance.

静寂の水面 波立てて 爪先を濡らし円を描く
ハリボテの胸に音を灯す
seijaku no minamo namidatete tsumasaki o nurashi en o kaku
haribote no mune ni oto o tomosu

The quiet water’s surface surges. You draw a circle with wet fingertips.
A sound ignites in your papier-mâché chest.

他人の書く脚本の 脇役のまま終わるより
燃える闇に抱かれた 生まれ変わる
tanin no kaku kyakuhon no wakiyaku no mama owaru yori
moeru yami ni idakareta umarekawaru

Rather than finishing the script written by someone else as supporting actor,
Have the scorching darkness embrace you and be reborn.

You got the life
Dear Marionette
Now Ashes to ashes
壊れても

You got the life
Dear Marionette

Aren’t you free?
