Recurring Pandemonium

music: Street
lyrics/vocals: Risa Yuzuki
album: 風凛陽炎 (Fuurin Kagerou)
circle: Luminaria

The lyrics are based on the tale of Rokujou no Miyasundokoro, from the noh play Aoi no Ue that is based on The Tale of Genji. I’ll link you you to a summary of the story!


目醒めは蝕むよう
深淵に巣食う隠の 糸繰り人形
まとわりつく憎しみ
mezame wa mushibamu you
shinen ni sukuu o no itoayatsuri ningyou
matowaritsuku nikushimi

Waking feels like being gnawed at
To the marionette covertly nesting in the abyss.
She’s clinging to hatred.

歪み歪んで巡る
流る涙は血濡れて
まつろわぬ有象無象
変わり果てた形相
yugami yugande meguru
nagaru namida wa chi nurete
matsurowanu uzoumuzou
kawarihateta gyousou

Warping, distorting and returning,
Her flowing tears are wet with blood.
The disobedient masses
Now look completely changed.

狂おしく自由な牢
囚われたうつつ 縋る哀は
罪と罰 貴方がそう
私に背負わせた餞
kuruoshiku jiyuu na rou
torawareta utsutsu sugaru ai wa
tsumi to batsu anata ga sou
watashi ni seowaseta hanamuke

She goes insane in the prison of freedom,
Captured by the sorrow she clings to.
“Crime and punishment” is the farewell gift
Which you burdened me with.

蝶となり鬼となり
喉元に刃を立てて
あやかしに身を委ね
彷徨いつづける魂
chou to nari oni to nari
nodomoto ni ha o tatete
ayakashi ni mi o yudane
samayoitsuzukeru tamashii

I become a butterfly, I become a demon.
Slit my throat with your blade.
I devote myself to the ayakashi
And so my soul keeps wandering about.

咎として生まれ落ち
闇とともに息づく
宵々蠢きだす
継ぎ接ぎの痛み
toga to shite umareochi
yami to tomo ni ikizuku
yoiyoi ugomekidasu
tsugihagi no itami

I was born by mistake,
And live together with darkness.
This patched-up pain
Wriggles night after night.

欠落つ衆生無常
彼岸に染まるうつせみ
禍々しく交わる
心の軋む日暮れ
kakeotsu shujou mujou
higan ni somaru utsusemi
magamagashiku majiwaru
kokoro no kishimu higure

All wordly things are transient, lacking.
The real world is tainted by nirvana.
Mingling with the ominous,
The twilight in my creaking heart.

澱みに落ちる愛に
誠を求め続けて
嘯く風に合わせ
纏う異形の姿
yodomi ni ochiru ai ni
makoto o motometsuzukete
usobuku kaze ni awase
matou igyou no sugata

The love sinking into backwater,
I was honestly wanting it.
Uniting with the howling wind,
I’m clad in a grotesque guise.

喰い込んだ心の臓は
真実を幾度語(騙)ろうとも
宿命に飼い馴らされ
夜の片隅で一人咽ぶ
kuikonda shin no zou wa
shinjitsu o ikudo katarou tomo
shukumei ni kainarasare
yo no katasumi de hitori musebu

My heart was eaten into, and
Even if it speaks of truth often,
I let it be dominated by fate.
I’m suffocating alone in a corner of the night.

愛される苦しみに
焼けつくような嘆き
無慈悲にも偽善にも
なり切れず狭間を這って
aisareru kurushimi ni
yaketsuku you na nageki
mujihi ni mo gizen ni mo
narikirezu hazama o hatte

The pain of being loved,
The grief that seems to burn you.
It’s as ruthless as it is hypocritical,
Crawling into a gap unable to change completely.

赦されぬ存在に
この身が成り果てても
声を枯らし貴方を
穢し塗り潰そう
yurusarenu sonzai ni
kono mi ga narihatetemo
koe o karashi anata o
kegashi nuritsubusou

Even if my body is being reduced to
An existence that cannot be allowed to exist,
I’ll keep screaming myself hoarse,
Painting you over with defilement.

朝が来る前に
鍵をかけてしまおう
おやすみ、永遠にさよなら
asa ga kuru mae ni
kagi o kakete shimaou
oyasumi, eien ni sayonara

Before morning comes,
I shall lock the door.
Good night, and forever farewell.

蝶となり鬼となり
喉元に刃を立てて
あやかしに身を委ね
彷徨いつづける魂
chou to nari oni to nari
nodomoto ni ha o tatete
ayakashi ni mi o yudane
samayoitsuzukeru tamashii

I become a butterfly, I become a demon.
Slit my throat with your blade.
I devote myself to the ayakashi
And so my soul keeps wandering about.

赦されぬ存在に
この身が成り果てても
声を枯らし貴方を
穢し塗り潰そう
yurusarenu sonzai ni
kono mi ga narihatetemo
koe o karashi anata o
kegashi nuritsubusou

Even if my body is being reduced to
An existence that cannot be allowed to exist,
I’ll keep screaming myself hoarse,
Painting you over with defilement.
