A wintry sky and the broken streetlight cold wind.
Unknown shadow the footprint of desertion.
Freedom was taken.

If it wakes up a gloomy ceiling
A laughing voice sinks in the eardrum it is soiled
And violence rapes me

An understanding is impossible
Why was I chosen? Someone should answer...

Please answer me it is a horrible dream
How much should I shout, writhe and suffer?
Please tell me it is a horrible dream
I shouted many times with losing voice

There is no hand of preparing of the disordered hair.
A laughing voice sinks in the eardrum a faint temperature is mixed in the midwinter

I persuaded myself, who had a dying voice and began writhing.
Not to lose for living.
I was drowned in the night when I feared and had a dying voice.
Please forgive my dying breath.

Please answer me it is a horrible dream.
How much should I shout, writhe and suffer?
Please tell me it is a horrible dream.
I want to smile again at last

    General CommentExtremely sad song. I had no idea that it was about a girl who was raped and murdered in Japan. It's depressing and gruesome, but a great song.

    General Commentjesus christ. gazette. I'm.. speechless. I searched the murder case on wikipedia... omg... and just when I didnt think the song could hold any more meaning. it is.. truly powerful. and so sorrowful. what makes it even more terrible is the way things like this happen SO very often today. It just hurts to think abt all those ppl suffering like this. why do ppl have to hurt each other like this?

    General CommentSadly the men who did that to her are free men. I cry when I hear this song. No one should have to go through the things this poor girl went though. I love this song and this video. Junko, may your soul rest peacefully in heaven dear!
