12012

I think I’m going obsessed with 12012… Their music is too darn magnificent!!! And something makes me very interested in knowing more about their lead singer Wataru Miyawaki.

They grow on me.

They grow on me.

I found a translation of their beautiful song “Over” today. The original lyric is in Japanese of course, but I found this translation by Missleliz.

If you’ve read earlier entries in my blog, you know that I kind of despised it in the beginning, but slowly learned to love it. I love it to death, I believe it’s one of the most touching songs I ever heard, even though I haven’t understood a single word of what Wataru is singing.

That song is by no doubt special. Even you’re not into jrock – give it a chance.

It seems like it’s Wataru himself who writes the lyrics – and they are beautiful as well. Just like their music. Just like him.

Over….

I stared up at the cloudy sky.

I can hear someone’s voice.

When I close my eyes and listen carefully, it echoes in the sky – an endless song.

I’ll plant the seeds of the future

With truth and the soil of my atonement.

The sprout stretches high into the sky, escaping through the clouds to the ends of the galaxy.

I scream, scream my prayer to the sky without ever reaching it.

Though I desire an end

To these days in our world so full of conflict,

I’m right here, protecting such important, irreplaceable people.

In a whisper I pray, pray for compassion for my sins.

God, please somehow explain why I was born into this kind of era.

For whose sake do I share and endure the suffering of this era?

We’re waiting for a blessed rain

Somewhere in this town that’s all withered up.

Our thirsty hearts change shape, resenting and hating each other.

God, if you so desire it, you can sacrifice this body of mine.

Oh Mercy, pour down upon this world, upon this world, at once!

God, please somehow explain why I was born into this kind of era.

For whose sake do I share and endure the suffering of this era?

Search for the meanings of eternal sin, eternal days, eternal love; these are my last partings, my last decisions, so please tell me about them in the end.

God, please somehow explain why I was born into this kind of era.

For whose sake do I share and endure the suffering of this era?

Change the volition I strongly swore in the depths of my heart into a guide post.

For whose sake do I endure the rail that others continue to walk upon?
