EGOIST – The Everlasting Guilty Crown | Lyrics Translation

Song: The Everlasting Guilty Crown
Artist: EGOIST
Album: The Everlasting Guilty Crown
Other: Opening Song for the anime Guilty Crown

sekai ha owari wo tsugeyou to shiteru
dare ni mo mou tomerare ha shinai
hajimaru
houkai no SHINFONI- ga narihibiite
furuame ha marude namida no ne-iro

The world is proclaiming the end,
there is no one who can stop it now…
It’s starting…
The Symphony of Destruction echoes far and wide,
the falling rain is like the tune of tears…

oshiete

Tell me…

shihaishi shihaisare hito-tachi ha
itsuka sono kokoro ni nikushimi wo
soshite ai suru koto wo omoideasezu
arasou no?

Why do those who rule and those being ruled
take hatred into their hearts
and without remembering what it is to love,
fight each other?

kono uta ga kikoeteru
inochi aru subete no mono yo
shinjitsu ha anata no mune no naka ni aru
arashi no umi wo yuku toki mo
kesshite oku suru koto no nai tsuyosa wo
kureru kara

To all beings with life
who are listening to this song,
the truth lies within your hearts.
Even on times when you go into a sea of storms,
It’ll give you the strength
to never make you hesitate.

keredomo susumu hodo kaze ha tsuyoku
kibou no hi ha yagate kieteiku
“akari wo yokose” to ubaiai
hate ni hito ha koroshiau
namida nado tou ni karete

However, the more you advance the stronger the wind becomes,
then eventually it will blow out your candle of hope.
In the end, people will kill each other
stealing each others’ light.
Tears have long ago withered out…

kidzuite

Realize…

sono me ha tagai wo mitomeru tame
sono koe ha omoi wo tsutaeru tame
sono te ha daijina hito to tsunagu tame ni aru

Those eyes are so you could recognize each other.
That voice is so you could convey your feelings to each other.
And those hands are so you could hold the hand of your beloved.

kono uta ga kikoeteru
sekaijuu no yorube naki mono yo
kibou ha anata no mune no naka ni aru
moesakaru honoo no naka demo
kesshite kizutsuku koto no nai tsuyosa wo
kureru kara

To all who are listening this song
and have no place or person to return to,
hope lies within your heart.
Even if you’re inside a blazing flame,
I’ll give you the strength which will never
get damaged.

sono te de mamorou to shita mono ha
ai suru mono datta no darou ka
akaku somatta sono te wo nagamete
yatto mizukara ga shitekita orokasa wo
ayamachi to mitomeru sono tsumi wo
tomedonaku afureru sono namida wo shiru

That which those hands tried to protect
may have been the person you loved… but,
take a look at your red stained hands
and know that foolishness you brought from yourself,
know that sin which accepted your mistakes,
and come to know the tears which ceaselessly overflow…

kono uta ga kikoeteru
inochi aru subete no mono yo
shinjitsu ha anata no mune no naka ni aru
arashi no umi ha shizumatta
ushinatta mono ha kazoekirenaku to mo

To all beings with life
who are listening to this song,
the truth lies within your hearts.
The sea of storm as calmed down,
but the things and persons lost… are uncountable.

kono uta ga kikoeteru
sekaijuu no yorube naku mono yo
kibou ha anata no mune no naka ni aru
kanashimi no yoru wo koeru toki
kanarazu anata ha ikiteiku tsuyosa wo
motteru kara

To all who are listening this song
and have no place or person to return to,
hope lies within your heart.
When you spend and overcome a night of sadness,
you will have the strength which proves
that you are alive.

    I hadn’t noticed in the series, but now the single is out I realize this song is actually pretty catchy. I wouldn’t have noticed without your lyrics, thanks.

    I don’t know the Japanese language all that well but listening to it feels great, but knowing the meaning gives it so much more feeling.

    I Think the sentence is “It’ll give you a strength which never
    make you hesitate.” not “I’ll give you a strength which never
    make you hesitate.”

    it makes a lot of difference.

    so…the sentence says “It (the truth) will give you a strength which never make you hesitate.”

    Lyrics right before the chorus of this song is really something o__O frightening, I say.
    But anyway it took me weeks, even months to realize the song is awesome by. The instruments combination is cool (y)
