Hirogaru yami no naka kawashiatta kakumei no chigiri
Aishita yue ni mebaeta aku no hana
Kore kara saki otozureru de arou subete wo
Dare ni mo jama saseru wake ni wa ikanai kara

Kajitsu ga tsugeta mirai
Risei wo wasureta machi
Kuroku yuganda ima wo
Yume, risou ni kaeru

Doushite? Boku wa kowareta Messiah?
Dare mo ga nozonda "owaru" wo...

Hirogaru yami no naka kawashiatta kakumei no chigiri
Aishita yue ni mebaeta aku no hana
Kore kara saki otozureru de arou subete wo

Dare ni mo jama saseru wake ni wa ikanai

Itsuka boku ga misete ageru
Hikari kagayaku sora wo

Doushite? Boku wa kowareta Messiah?
Dare mo ga yume mita "rakuen" wo...

Hirogaru yami no naka kawashiatta kakumei no chigiri
Aishita yue ni mebaeta aku no hana
Kore kara saki otozureru de arou subete wo
Dare ni mo jama saseru wake ni wa ikanai

Itsuka boku ga misete ageru
Hikari kagayaku sekai wo

    General CommentI've heard this song on the Deathnote opening, and i have no clue what it means! However, i do feel like it is somewhat following the story of Deathnote, and asking the obvious question- "is it just to kill hundreds of people to make the world a better place?"

    General CommentThis song really spoke to me the first time I heard it through. I mean, the part 'Someday, I’ll show you
    A shining sky' made me kinda sad. I've always loved this song as the opening theme of Death Note (Desu Nooto) and I have to agree with foreverago: it really DOES fit the tone of the story; kinda dark & mysterious, with a LOT of, well, death in the first dozen or so episodes. Plus, Yomi's voice is SOO the sex!

    General CommentI have to follow up woth what foreverago and ~Kira X Kira~ said, it totally fits the story. Every part of the song has something to do with Deathnote. The part "Yume risou ni kaeru (dreams, turned into ideals)" really relates with Light because his dream of changing the world eventually not only becomes his ideal, but also his obsession. Then the line "Doushite Boku wa kowareta Messiah, dare mo ga nozonda owari wo (Why? Am I a broken Messiah, everyone wished for a finale) shows Light's confusement as to why everyone is turning against him. Dosen't everyone want a "finale" so that all the crime will end? Dosen't everyone wish for a paradise? Then why are people trying to killl him if he's trying to show them, "a shining sky?"
