Recieving a head wind against the sky,
falling, falling
Pick those feathers up one by one,
wandering, wandering

Hands of the man who waits for the end
are blue Travel forward and separate the
distance Sits on a chair, mouth sealed,
vision warped and reflects the black.

Future is overflowing with fear The
darkness goes on, the darkness gets
deeper Look back the mistakes in the
past Stack them up, stack them up

Throw up the meaning of overflowing
water strongly on to both of these
forgotten hands
I won't abandon the smell of blood
flowing incessantly, eternally

We can still be disappointed
We were again discouraged
Abandon hope and became helpless
Our arms are dragged by hope
Pull and pulled back to the place we were

There I stop and lie down
Stare at your back
Loneliness of a smile,
not to tell but to interrupt
I laugh in a room and throw waste

Inside a tiny falling cage Down stream
Depending on presents The darkness goes
on. As long as it flows Winds go deeper
Gouge out those false words Pile them up
Wash away the footprints ahead
Cajole us, make us forget and let us go
In return for the presents
we hand out

    General CommentThe music to this song is so happy-sounding, but the lyrics are so dark. Maybe the intended emotion is melancholy. In any case, I love the combination.

    General CommentWell is it just me or is he 'singing' in japanese? so where did you get this lyrics? and what good are they if you can't keep up with him or even know if that's really what's he saying / screaming / singing / whatever ?

    General Commentyeah he's singing in japanese, and im pretty sure the lyrics are off the original cd, i think they wrote the translation.
    and well i believe that understanding what he was trying to say through the song is more important than just sing it like a stupid parrot.

    General Commentwell you might have a point but I still find it hard to really feel what he's saying at one particular moment since I get lost somewhere in the middle of the song... nevertheless beautiful music, great lyrics (from what I've read), great band...

    General CommentI know Japanese and English and it seems to me like the first stanza would have been better translated:

    wind against my back/my face against the sky/I'm falling/falling...
    picking up feathers one by one/I'm drifting/drifting (or maybe flowing is better, I dunno)

    The Japanese lyrics for the first stanza are:
    空に向かい、風を受けながら (sora ni mukai, kaza wo ukenagara)
    落ちて行く (ochite yuku)
    落ちて行く (ochite yuku)

    羽を一つ一つ拾い集め (hane wo hitotsu hitotsu hiroi atsume)
    流れ行く (nagare yuku)
    流れ行く (nagare yuku)
