The world's flowers are like a carpet of crimson red
As one petal scatters and is tossed through the air
Sorrow and sadness are born there
From the darkness that streams in the world below
Aa, Were humans hearts meant only to lie?
Are people just the puppets of fate?

Just to... embrace those we love
And protect those precious and small
Again today, someone laments again
Sacrificing even their life
To smolder in the midst of time
With that instant's kiss

In this city stained with greed
The only thing heading Heavenward is wind
All that is left of trampled love
Is the tear left in the palm of my hand
Aa, were smiles only meant to sunder?
Every one has their own wounded hearts

I want to... protect those timid creatures
Those who kneel in prayer
I'll even carve a cross in my chest
To believe in something unstoppable
And the irrepressible spirt
Now and forever

The clouds disperse / the stars are seen
The wind stills / the birds sing
The ocean shines / the heavens thaw
The night ends / I feel you

    General CommentBy the way, the translation was done my my friend Dave, so it might be a little shaky. He's an idiot. ^^
