LyricsEdit

EnglishEdit

"Deep underground, I kept digging a hole
Without knowing where it would lead
With a dirt-covered eyepiece in one hand
I searched for your arm
Scraping together patchwork happiness, and sowing it,
I was crushed by your strength.
Burned on     Burned on
The inerasable scars left by the palms of my hands
Sever a rift in the red-stained clouds with my torn wings.
See, I can flutter better than you thought.


The eternity I dreamed while confined in my cocoon,
Where will it take seed and blossom?
The morning will eventually come and bring the darkness back home,
And steal my eyes away from me.
Fumbling for you by moonlight, overlapping and entangling with you,
I believed I could become your true hiding place.
Burned down     Burned down,
The place of our promise that ill never return
Run across the black-stained earth with a torn-off agony
See, I can flutter better than you thought.


If you can't hear me, even though I scream
I want you to destroy me with your own hands
While you can still hold me dear.
Your arms that hold me back
turn into a gentle dust
I simply stare at the sky, silently.
Burned on     Burned on,
The inerasable scars left by the palms of my hands.
Sever a rift in the red-strained clouds with my torn wings.


Burned down     Burned down
The place of our promise that will never return
See, I can flutter better than you thought."

JapaneseEdit


地下に潜り穴を掘り続けた
どこに続く穴かは知らずに
土に濡れたスコップを片手に
君の腕を探していた
つぎはぎの幸せを寄せ集め
蒔きながら君の強さに押し潰されていた

焼け付き焼け付き
剥がれない掌の跡
千切れた翼で赤く染まる雲間を裂いて
上手に羽ばたく私を見つめて

繭に籠もり描いた永遠は
どこに芽吹き花開くのだろう
朝はやがて闇夜を連れ戻し
私の目を奪ってゆく
月灯り手探りで重ね合い
縺れては君の在処になれると信じた

燃え尽き燃え尽き
戻らない約束の場所
千切れた痛みで黒く染まる大地を駆けて
上手に羽ばたく私を見つめて

叫んでも聞こえぬなら、その手で壊してほしい
まだ私を私と呼べるうちに
抱き止める君の腕が穏やかな塵に変わる
ただ静かに空を仰いだ

焼け付き焼け付き
剥がれない掌の跡
千切れた翼で赤く染まる雲間を裂いて
燃え尽き燃え尽き
戻らない約束の場所
上手に羽ばたく私を見つめて。
