Onitsuka Chihiro, "Arashi ga Oka" {k/r/t}

Artist: 鬼束 ちひろ (Onitsuka Chihiro)
Song Title: 嵐ヶ丘 (Arashi ga Oka; Wuthering Heights)
Single: Beautiful Fighter
Track Number: 2
Released: 2003
Lyrics By: Onitsuka Chihiro

One of my favorite songs from one of my favorite artists. :) Chihiro Onitsuka is an amazing lyricist, but I admit that she's a little tough to translate -- for me, anyway. :P Her lyrics are very complex and beautiful. I'm shocked to learn that this song ISN'T about Emily Bronte's book Wuthering Heights ... It sounds just like Heathcliff!! XD But, apparently, Onitsuka wrote it to represent a worldview. ...I still pretend it's about the book. haha

Kanji Romaji English Translation
全てにおいて 幻覚的で
私は今日も太陽を沈める
貴方の事舞い上がれない風の事
思い浮かべて歩く坂道

美徳は「信じて裏切る速さ」
だと言うのに
何故まともでいられないの?

そして私は怪獣になった
共犯者はもういない
日常
そのヒステリックな様を
不自由に保つために
だから私は頷かなかった
無傷で過ごせたとしても
奇妙な揺れを待っているの
心を震わせながら

答えはどこか 消極的で
見降ろす街を彷徨っているけど
地平線は驚く程緩やかに
いつの日でも 傾いてる

言葉だけ過剰にあらゆる愛へ急ぐのを
まだこんなに許せないから

そして私は怪獣になった
もう元には戻れない
うつむき
それでも広がる世界に
泣きながら 返事をして
だから私は逃げ出さなかった
誰でもない自分から
渦巻く空が呼んでいるの
何より大きな声で

美徳は「信じて裏切る速さ」
だと言うのに
何故まともでいられないの?

そして私は怪獣になった
共犯者はもういない
日常
そのヒステリックな様を
不自由に保つために
だから私は頷かなかった
無傷で過ごせたとしても
奇妙な揺れを待っているの
心を震わせながら

Everything is like a hallucination.
I supress the sun even today.
Things about you and the flightless wind
come to my mind as I walk down the sloping path.

Though it is said that it's a virtue
"to trust and betray with speed,"
why can't I just be honest?

And I became a monster.
There is no longer an accomplice.
It was all for the sake of
preserving that hysteric appearance of an ordinary life,
and all of my destitution.
So, I did not bow my head.
Even if I passed by unwounded,
I'll still wait for a strange tremor
while my heart trembles.

The answer is half-hearted somewhere,
though I'm overlooking the town it wanders through.
To a degree that it's just shocking, the horizon
leisurely sinks lower everyday.

It's only words that rush into any sort of love,
because I can't forgive such things yet.

And I became a monster.
I can no longer return to how I once was.
I lower my head,
and yet I'm reaching for the world,
weeping as I reply.
So I did not run away
from anyone except myself.
The swirling sky calls to me
with the biggest voice.

Though it is said that it's a virtue
"to trust and betray with speed,"
why can't I just be honest?

And I became a monster.
There is no longer an accomplice.
It was all for the sake of
preserving that hysteric appearance of an ordinary life,
and all of my destitution.
So, I did not bow my head.
Even if I passed by unwounded,
I'll still wait for a strange tremor
while my heart trembles.
