震え届く風頬撫でゆく
静寂に抗う赤子のように
抱え込み離さなかった
籠は容易く崩れ去る

限られた時間(とき)と空間(はざま)をゆく
瑠璃の鳥示した星の兆し
月を背にした暗闇さえも
いとおしく思える

罅(ひび)割れ欠けていく
歪んだ糸模様
届かない叫びを
この胸に押さえて

翳(かざ)した手のひら すり抜けていく
思い出せもしない
打ち棄てた身体迷いの中
漂い辿り着くのは途切れた軌跡


明ける空を忌み影落とす者
望むべきものはここに無いと
踏み出した土は脆くて
孤独のままに堕ちてゆく

閉ざされた世界を破り逃れるなら
儚い願いは叶えられるはずもない

確かな記憶を紡ぐように
悲しみが見えぬように
懼(おそ)れた答えは無間(むげん)の中
出でた殻は紅く染まった-

翳した手のひら すり抜けていく
もう動くこともない
奇跡を信じた無垢の心
遠い神話のよう

光を集めた瑠璃の鳥よ
行方も分からないまま
打ち棄てた身体 迷いの中
漂い辿り着くのは 途切れた軌跡

Romaji lyrics:
furue todoku kaze hoho nade yuku
seijaku ni aragau akago no you ni
kakaekomi hanasanakatta
kago wa tayasuku kuzuresaru

kagirareta toki to hazama wo yuku
ruri no tori shimeshita hoshi no kizashi
tsuki wo se ni shita kurayami sae mo
itooshiku omoeru

hibiware kaketeiku
yuganda ito moyou
todokanai sakebi wo
kono mune ni osaete

kazashita te no hira surinuketeiku
omoidase mo shinai
uchisuteta karada mayoi no naka
tadayoi tadoritsuku no wa togireta kiseki


akeru sora wo imi kage otosu mono
nozomubeki mono wa koko ni nai to
fumidashita tsuchi wa morokute
kodoku no mama ni ochite yuku

tozasareta sekai wo yaburi nogareru nara
hakanai negai wa kanaerareru hazu mo nai

tashikana kioku wo tsumugu you ni
kanashimi ga mienu you ni
osoreta kotae wa mugen no naka
ideta kara wa akaku somatta—

kazashita te no hira surinuketeiku
mou ugoku koto mo nai
kiseki wo shinjita muku no kokoro
tooi shinwa no you

hikari wo atsumeta ruri no tori yo
yukue mo wakaranai mama
uchisuteta karada mayoi no naka
tadayoi tadoritsuku no wa togireta kiseki


English translation:
The trembling wind reaches and strokes my cheek
Putting a silent struggle, just like a baby
The cage I couldn't let go from my embrace
easily crumbles apart

Going through the limited time and space,
The star signs pointed out to the azure bird
Even the dark side of the moon
I think dearly of it

Broken and cracked
into a distorted thread pattern
The scream that won't reach anyone
I repress it in my chest

Slipping through the palm holding aloft
And I can't even remember any of it
The abandoned shell drifts astray
and what I barely reached are cut off traces of you


The dawning sky tells the people who casts mourning shadow
that what they desire doesn't exist here
The ground I embark on is so frail
and so I crumbles apart in loneliness

If you wish to escape and break free from the closed world
There's no way mere prayer would grant that

Wishing so I can spin the certain memories,
wishing so I can't see the sadness
The answer I feared is in the deepest hell
The shell emerging from it was dyed crimson

Slipping through the palm holding aloft
and never again will move
An innocent heart which believed in miracle,
just like a far away myth

O, the azure bird which had gathered the light
Your whereabouts remain unknown
The abandoned shell drifts astray
and what I barely reached are cut off traces of you
