最後の灯火さえ 虚空の彼方

残された城壁は 何も語らない


眠れ 帰らぬ日々よ 幾千の歴史超えて
廻れ 生命の息吹 いつか出会う暁まで


Romaji and English Translation are found by Tumblr user abyssalnode

suna no umi ni ukabu kuchita koujou
saigo no tomoshibi sae kokuu no kanata

omoeba ikutsumo no kisetsu ga atta
nokosareta jouheki wa nani mo kataranai

shingenkyou wa senka he to
shinwa wa mokuzu to nari
daga tame ni…
mabayuki hitomi wa doko he

nemure kaeranu hibi yo ikusen no rekishi koete
megure seimei no ibuki itsuka deau akatsuki made

English TranslationEdit

A ruined castle rises back to the surface of sea of sands
Just its last flame lights up the distant empty sky

When I remember a great number of seasons has passed
The abandoned rampart speaks not even a word

Foresty hometowns burned into the chaotic war
Divine myths sunk into the deep sea
For whose sake were those…
Where will that dazzling eye gaze at next

Sleep, oh days never to return, cross over thousands of histories
Revolve, oh breathes of life, till the daybreak of meeting someday
