Ai shite kudasai kono hi ni kono kachi wo

gasp for breath

    General CommentI would say the meaning could be quite broad, I don't think its aimed directy at a church, or a relationship or a cult, the wording of the song can be aimed at all of them, I think its talking about people and groups in general. Pessimistic, self-loving, I think he is talking about people, plain and simple.
    the song also talks about peoples need to be accepted, that is were I think it might refer to a cult,

    people feel accepted in cults, which is why they are so strong, once a personis really into the cult the leader can manipulate them to get them to act a certain way, "if you were a true believer you would..." etc...

    General CommentActually I don't think this song has to do with any actual cult at all.
    but this is just my opinion.
    I believe that he is speaking of a relationship were the love is very distant,cold and fake like a cult because the girl just wants the romance to be perfect because she is just so self absorbed that she can't see she's killing the love mercilessly,it gets so bad that you can't even see its love anymore.
    "The pessimistic you The merciless you
    And the self-loving you, What are you looking at?
    You must be a romanticist."
    Then he finally realizes that the "love" is killing him so he decides to end it but the girl is to blind to see its her fault and starts to scream at him asking whats wrong with him and there "love",pretty much blaming everything on him.
    "With comparing and getting things in proportion you scream out mad.
    You wanted this ending to happen."
    but truly he still loves the girl because he remembers the old her and what all those memories they had and what they meant so he wants her to love him now like she use to.
    "Please love me, this blood and the meaning
    Please love me, this day and this value"
    =) again I say thats just my thought,anyone agree? disagree?

    General CommentI think this song is about a love gone wrong, as mentioned before, but I see it in a different way. Remember this is just my interpretation, don't bash me too bad.

    I think it's a song about young love (which is usually lust) and how the two fell into the popular way of doing things, where young people fall in love and people say what a great couple they are, so they get married for the wrong reason, lust not love. That "crowd" represents the cult.

    "The pessimistic you The merciless you
    And the self-loving you, What are you looking at?"

    I think the man in the relationship is seeing the girl more and more for what she is and it makes him sick, he can't stand her anymore. She's too self absorbed and negative towards everything and cares nothing for his feelings at all, just about herself and how people perceive her.

    "With comparing and getting things in proportion you scream out mad
    You wanted this ending to happen
    You must be a romanticist"

    When he calls her out on this and says he can't stand the way she is anymore, that she's not the person he once thought she was and he wants a divorce, she gets pissed. She is worried about how people will see her if they got a divorce. In the way she is expressing her anger, he knows that all she wanted was her thoughts on love, a sort of a Romeo and Juliet romance, where the two meet and fall deeply in love forever and one can't live without the other, so they never part. People love that sort of story and in knowing this she wants this relationship to be seen as such.

    "But I just remembered that there is no love here
    Over and Over somewhere begins to break"

    The merciless part comes in when he knows deeply the young love he thought they once shared was a lie and its over for the both of them. He knows now they are in it for the wrong reasons. They are in the relationship only so others can see their relationship the way the 'world' or 'cult' sees fit.

    "Please love me, this blood and the meaning
    Please love me, this day and this value"

    He decides to kill her and then himself, but in doing so he is telling her to love him for this because he is giving her what she wants for one last time, her romantic ending of them dying together, as one.

    "gasp for breath"

    He stabs her to death, but he soon follows in suicide.

    General CommentI think it's about that cult in Japan that thought the end of the world was coming so they killed people at random. Of course, I could be completely off.

    General CommentI agree with beau99, i think this song is about Dir en Grey's cult of fans XD
    The song is very awesome, especially when I heard it at the 'Family Values' tour.
    Dir en Grey never ceases to amaze me, no matter how many times I listen to one song over...
    and over...
    and over again.
