Crimson Lotus Flower

I learned the reason to get strong,
take me with you.

I feel sick on this muddy revolving lantern,
my heart is stiff.
There’s something for this hands to grab,
that’s what they’re for.
The scent of the night stares at the sky as well.
The only one who can change myself is me. That’s all.

I learned the reason to get strong,
take me with you.

By all means!
Even my indelible dream is unstoppable now.
If you can get strong for someone,
you’ll say thank you to your sorrow.
I know what it means to lose
and be defeated by the world.
Blossom in glory, crimson lotus flower!
Shine on my fate.

The lightning’s noise pierces my ear,
my heart is confused.
There’s something that can’t be protected
by kindness only? I know it, but…
Good and evil are entwined on water’s surface,
the justice of heaven sees through hypocrisy.
A flower of outstanding talent, that single flower
that kept blooming through challenges is beautiful.

The road wildly scattered with thorns that
appears only to me because of my earnestness,
I’ll cross it.
As for the dream I couldn’t protect,
that’s easily settled:
it’s rooted in the heart of the crimson lotus,
it dwells in my blood.

Unseen, fleeting, the conclusion is scattering.
The scream of the blowing wind is heartbreaking.
The shadow of someone laughing, someone’s crying voice.
Everyone wishes for happiness.

By all means!
Even my indelible dream is unstoppable now.
If you can get strong for someone,
you’ll say thank you to your sorrow.
I know what it means to lose
and be defeated by the world.
Blossom in glory, crimson lotus flower!
Shine on my fate.

Tsuyoku nareru riyuu wo shitta boku wo tsurete susume

dorodarake no soumatou ni you kowabaru kokoro
furueru te wa tsukamitai mono ga aru sore dake sa
yoru no nioi ni sora nirandemo
kawatte ikeru no wa jibun jishin dake sore dake sa

tsuyoku nareru riyuu wo shitta boku wo tsurete susume

dou shitatte!
kesenai yume mo tomarenai ima mo
dareka no tame ni tsuyoku nareru nara
arigatou kanashimi yo
sekai ni uchinomesarete makeru imi wo shitta
guren no hana yo sakihokore! unmei wo terashite

inabikari no zatsuon ga mimi wo sasu tomadou kokoro
yasashii dake ja mamorenai mono ga aru? wakatteru kedo
suimenka de karamaru zenaku sukete mieru gizen ni tenbatsu
itsuzai no hana yori idomi tsuzuke saita ichirin ga utsukushii

ranbou ni shikitsumerareta togedarake no michi mo
honki no boku dake ni arawareru kara norikoete miseru yo
kantan ni katazukerareta mamorenakatta yume mo
guren no shinzou ni ne wo hayashi kono chi ni yadotteru

hito shirezu hakanai chiriyuku ketsumatsu
mujou ni yaburete himei no kaze fuku
dareka no warau kage dareka no nakigoe
daremo ga shiawase wo negatteru

dou shitatte!
kesenai yume mo tomarenai ima mo
dareka no tame ni tsuyoku nareru nara
arigatou kanashimi yo
sekai ni uchinomesarete makeru imi wo shitta
guren no hana yo sakihokore! unmei wo terashite

紅蓮華

強くなれる理由を知った 僕を連れて進め

泥だらけの走馬灯に酔う こわばる心
震える手は掴みたいものがある それだけさ
夜の匂いに空睨んでも
変わっていけるのは自分自身だけ それだけさ

強くなれる理由を知った 僕を連れて進め

どうしたって!
消せない夢も 止まれない今も
誰かのために強くなれるなら
ありがとう 悲しみよ
世界に打ちのめされて負ける意味を知った
紅蓮の華よ咲き誇れ! 運命を照らして

イナビカリの雑音が耳を刺す 戸惑う心
優しいだけじゃ守れないものがある? わかってるけど
水面下で絡まる善悪 透けて見える偽善に天罰
逸材の花より 挑み続け咲いた一輪が美しい

乱暴に敷き詰められた トゲだらけの道も
本気の僕だけに現れるから 乗り越えてみせるよ
簡単に片付けられた 守れなかった夢も
紅蓮の心臓に根を生やし この血に宿ってる

人知れず儚い 散りゆく結末
無情に破れた 悲鳴の風吹く
誰かの笑う影 誰かの泣き声
誰もが幸せを願ってる

どうしたって!
消せない夢も 止まれない今も
誰かのために強くなれるなら
ありがとう 悲しみよ
世界に打ちのめされて負ける意味を知った
紅蓮の華よ咲き誇れ! 運命を照らして
