"Libra(english translation)" as written by Masaaki Yaguchi (pka Miya) and Tatsuro Iwakami (pka Tatsuro)....
With your dominant arm, you grab the reality
With you other arm, you uphold the morality
you light up the love deep in your heart
you weight things up with the scale inside your head
Inside the dense and thick darkness,
you hide your own shadow
The sound of the dirty abacus, echoes
in the world! please stop!

In this world where feelings are only a hinderance
shoot and kill me!
Who is using the scale?
Who is using the abacus?
Who is playing the Hamelin flute?
Who is the boy who cried wolf?
Rather than caring about these
things right now, I love you!

Flower! now, in full bloom already late in telling me
The meaning of living right here, right now,
the meaning of tomorrow's coming.

With your dominant arm, you have desire.
With your other arm, you hide immorality.
If you could shut love away deep inside you heart
the saint in your head will laugh.
The brave flower that grows in the vacant lot
surrounded by the towering buildings
that take away the sun light rays.
People's eyes are glared by these buildings
soon, the flower stopped breathing.
The wind was only gently caressing
Only the wind was gently caressing

The thing about living,
that is like wondering in the darkness, not able to see a thing.
The thing about dying, that, is also darkness,
"the end" is no way "the beginning."
That's why we need to light up the darkness now
burn up our life line in a flash
after releasing the radiance.
The proof of life
is hard to reach, but strong.

Flower! now, in full bloom you had told me
The meaning of living right here, right now
the meaning of tomorrow's coming.

I am going to die some day, what can I do for you.
Rays of light shine eternity on from the rising sun, onto this world.

    General CommentThis song is about not giving up on something, no matter what and loving who you are not what you are. The flower is a symbole of life, growing in a lot. So it (the flower) is not giving up.
