umiotosareru kodomo tsumi no ishiki no nai otona otosare
namae mo nai boku naze koko ni iru no ka sae wakaranai keredo
tatta suukagetsu no inochi tomo shirazu....

boku wa aisaretai boku wa umaretai kono botai no naka mitsumete
boku ga ishiki wo matta toki kara nikkagetsu me nani ka ga hayai to kanjita
mada nani mo dekinai sono uchi puragu ga....

fukanzenna boku wa kaki otosareta itami ga karada wo tsukinukeru
haha no naki sakebu koe mimi nari ga yamanai hakui no otona tachi boku wo sukui ageta
reiketsu ni michi afureta hitomi ni chimamire no migi te no nai boku ga utsuru
sono mama kuroi biniiru ni tsutsumareta
dandan ishiki ga usureru naka boku wa kangaeru shizuka ni
Cage no boku wo kono mama aiseru nara sore de ii yurusezu
aisarenai boku wa kono mama shinda hou ga ii
dakara ugoe wo agezu shizuka ni nemurimashou
ichodo dake haha no ai kono te de kanjite mitai

nido to hirakanai tobira kataku tomerarete ita
demo ne boku wa kitto mirai no kimi dakara
ra ra ra....

karada yakitsukusare hone ga nakunaru made yakitsukusu

    General CommentThis is probably my favourite Dir en Grey song. Even with the Japanese lyrics, the imagery present within the song lends itself to self-explanation.

    General CommentMy favourite song from Diru to, no doubt about it!!! Everytime I listen to it I have to stop everything I'm doing. It's... how can I say... powerful and hypnotizing *-*

    General Commentmazohyst of decadence was the first dir en grey song i ever heard, and it's also my absolute favorite. unlike many other songs that run over 4-5 minutes, i can always listen to this one straight through without getting bored or skipping it. i find that pretty good, considering i can't even understand the lyrics. so, ditto akasha.

    General CommentIt freaked me out when i heard it! It's such a powerful song, Kyo's screams really make the situation even more grim. And just so you know, Kyo is singing about an abortion from the foetus' point of view!! icky... but i love this song!

    General CommentI love this song and when I saw the video I loved it even more. Kyo's voice is so powerful in representing the feeling on the subject of abortion. I loves this song forever!!!!

    General CommentIt's not written "as if from" an unborn child's pov - it IS written from an unborn child's pov. The child in the song is deformed so his mother decides to abort him. He (the child) keeps singing about how he just wants to be born into a world where he will be loved and cared for despite the fact that he won't come out perfect, but if he can't have a mother who will feel that way about him it would just be better if he dies now.

    Other than that this song is f'ing epic - I love the use of more traditional asian instruments added to it and the conversation between the abortion doctor and the mother has such a wonderful sensual sound to it.
