The pressed flower recalls memories in the evening sky
To that time, when I would count on my fingers, the days until we met.
In the good ol' days of clear blue skies the broken dream and
To my sorrow, the endless evidence of my crime,
One night voiceless is Spring.

Drowining in the evening, when it was still cold
I saw the early blossoming cherry blossoms
And there she stood underneath them, but that's an old story.
In those days she was lovely and so very beautiful
And yet something about her face seemed sad,
You see, she was hiding the tears of the dusk behind that long hair

This place reflects you and even the many things I'd forgotten
You, fragile and drained of color, and the monochrome scars.
In the good ol' days of clear blue skies the broken dream and
What's sinful is I caught a glimpse of,
The one night Spring in which vice groaned within.

The show booth

I saw you, in the cold daybreak,
Still letting others control you, unable to do anything,
The tears trickling down your face, like flower petals.

The pressed flower recalls the memories in the evening sky
To that time, when I would count on my fingers, the days until we met.
Under the blossoming cherry blossoms behind the booth illuminated in the dusk
If only if only for now the scars you hide behind your sleeves would disappear
In the good ol' days of clear blue skies the broken dream and
To my sorrow, the endless evidence of my crime,
One night voiceless is Spring.

    General CommentIt seems like this is a song about a girl in a Freak Show, and a man that falls in love with her. Like, they secretly meet sometimes or something. And he becomes so madly in love with her, that he kills her. I don't know...

    General CommentThe way I see it is he's writing his life, and his so called sins are related to the final.
