The thing called love disappears when it becomes solid.
the answer you whispered from behind me.
your back not overly jealous.
I fawn over you, pretending not to see it.

We won't need words if we can seek the night together.
We won't need love, to go to a darkness with no place to step.

When I awoke, by my side was your face I've grown tired of
seeing.
It's too much for you, all worn out.

The cold night froze even the cold moon
The moon sank and lit up the cold sea.

Be a flower, be a butterfly, prick me with the poison thorn
The sinful time can't destroy the hourglass,
the dream of primary colors spread out, the balance lost
the sinful feelings can't destroy the hourglass.

the wounds are too deep, i lose sight of what's before me,
just watching that figure

We won't need words if we can seek the night together.
We won't need love, to go to a darkness with no place to step.

prick me with the thorn of a love, not loved and unable to love.
writhing in agony, aren't you ashamed to be so indecent?
you'll never be the same again but, pour the sweet saliva.

Be a flower, be a butterfly, prick me with the poison thorn
The sinful time can't destroy the hourglass,
the dream of primary colors spread out, the balance lost
the sinful feelings can't destroy the hourglass.

    General Commentok, this is going to take a while XD

    ‘The thing called love disappears when it becomes solid.’
    When the excitement and fun drains from the relationship, the love disappears. The relationship has become ‘solid’, it’s reached long-term status, but the emotion and passion has left. Kyo uses ‘thing’ to be deliberately ambiguous-‘thing’ could refer to the emotion, the person or the actual relationship.

    ‘the answer you whispered from behind me.’
    He can’t face her, she’s not really talking with words but more her attitude, answering his thoughts about the relationship.

    ‘your back not overly jealous.’
    He can tell from her body language that she is aware of the decaying relationship but doesn’t care

    ‘I fawn over you, pretending not to see it.’
    He tries to ignore the fact that the love has disappeared

    ‘We won't need words if we can seek the night together.
    We won't need love, to go to a darkness with no place to step. ‘
    The only thing keeping the relationship together is sex, but it’s passionless.

    ‘When I awoke, by my side was your face I've grown tired of
    seeing.
    It's too much for you, all worn out. ‘
    He’s sick of being unfulfilled by passionless sex, it deeps pointless.

    ‘The cold night froze even the cold moon
    The moon sank and lit up the cold sea.’
    Kyo describes the relationship getting colder and the speaker of the poem becoming more unhappy.

    ‘Be a flower, be a butterfly, prick me with the poison thorn’
    He wants the relationship to go back to how it was, he wants he to be beautiful again, he wants to be in love again. ‘be a flower, be a butterfly’ are demands. He’s demanding her to be something that she is not. He wants were to change, but knows it is impossible.

    ‘The sinful time can't destroy the hourglass, ‘
    The sex can’t change anything, ‘sinful time’ would be the sex, the ‘hourglass’ is the way they have changed over time.

    ‘the dream of primary colors spread out, the balance lost’
    primary colours suggest childhood or childishness, in this context he’s referring to a simpler time. He longs for the time when they were in love and the relationship worked.

    ‘the sinful feelings can't destroy the hourglass.’
    No matter how he feels, he can’t change the fact that they no longer love each other.

    ‘the wounds are too deep, i lose sight of what's before me,
    just watching that figure’
    The damage is done and there is no fixing it, the idea of leaving her is unthinkable, but the love is gone from the relationship and cannot be returned.

    ‘We won't need words if we can seek the night together.
    We won't need love, to go to a darkness with no place to step.’
    They’re still trapped in the relationship for convenience sake, they don’t want to be alone, but being together is fruitless

    ‘prick me with the thorn of a love, not loved and unable to love.’
    He wants to love her again, and wants to be loved in return

    ‘writhing in agony, aren't you ashamed to be so indecent?’
    The intimacy is gone from the relationship yet the continue to have intercourse-which is rather tasteless. Having sex without love could be seen as indecent.

    ‘you'll never be the same again but, pour the sweet saliva.’
    They won’t go back to how they were, but they’ll continue to be together.

    General CommentArgh!? No comments? This is a GREAT song. It's got a great guitar intro, and the music was written by the ever-lovely Die. Really, the excellent guitar continues all throughout this song. For some reason, this song sort of.. reminds me of.. more classic-rock-ish stuff. It's rather catchy, too. It gets stuck in my head sometimes. x.o
    Anyway, it's a very good song. And more people should COMMENT.. honestly.
