Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Live Action Movie Opening Theme – WHEEL OF FORTUNE (Unmei no Wa)

WHEEL OF FORTUNE
Vocals: Shimamiya Eiko
Lyrics: Shimamiya Eiko
Composition: Takase Kazuya
Arrangement: Takase Kazuya

I become lost on the animal trail without a way back
It was a dream that I had somewhere, a déjà vu that I recall

Let me pass, let me pass; going is fine, fine
Yet returning on this road is scary, ah…

Are you born here and dying here?
No matter how many times you flounder and oppose it, no one
Can escape; the wheel of fortune
Begins to turn when the cicadas cry


Stark eyes are staring and standing still
I’ll sleep forever, listening to the lullaby

Little ones are good children, so go to sleep effortlessly
The last moments before death are in your dreams, ah…

Are you born here and dying here?
No matter how many times you flounder and oppose it, no one
Can escape; the wheel of fortune
Begins to turn when the cicadas cry


Let me pass, let me pass; going is fine, fine
Yet returning on this road is scary, ah…

Are you born here and dying here?
No matter how many times you flounder and oppose it, no one
Can escape; the wheel of fortune
Begins to turn when the cicadas cry

The sky rumbles and yells, the door of occult opens; c’mon, whose turn is it next?
The sad lips of the human sacrifice sing
Indeed next time, you’ll slice apart the night that won’t dawn

Kaerimichi no nai   kemonomichi ni   mayoikomi
Dokoka de mita yume   omoidasu   de javu

Touryanse   touryanse   iki wa yoi yoi
Kono michi   kaeri wa kowai   aa…

Koko de umarete   koko de hateru no?
Nando agaite sakaratte mo   dare mo
Nogarerarenai   unmei no wa wa
Higurashi ga naku koro   mawaridasu yo


Ana no aita me ga   mitsume tachitsukushite iru
Eien ni nemuru   komoriuta o kiite

Bouya yoi ko da   nennen korori yo
Danmatsuma mo   yume no naka   aa…

Koko de umarete   koko de hateru no?
Nando agaite sakaratte mo   dare mo
Nogarerarenai   unmei no wa wa
Higurashi ga naku koro   mawaridasu yo


Touryanse   touryanse   iki wa yoi yoi
Kono michi   kaeri wa kowai   aa…

Koko de umarete   koko de hateru no?
Nando agaite sakaratte mo   dare mo
Nogarerarenai   unmei no wa wa

Hitomi gokuu no   kanashii kuchibiru ga utau yo
Kondo koso   akenai yoru o kirisaite

帰り道の無い けものみちに 迷い込み
どこかで見た夢 思い出す デ・ジャヴ

とうりゃんせ とうりゃんせ 行きはよいよい
このみち 帰りは怖い あぁ…

ここで生まれて ここで果てるの?
何度あがいて逆らっても 誰も
逃れられない 運命の輪は
ひぐらしがなく頃 回りだすよ


穴のあいた目が 見つめ立ちつくしている
永遠に眠る 子守唄を聴いて

坊やよい子だ ねんねんころりよ
断末魔も 夢の中 あぁてんてん

ここで生まれて ここで果てるの?
何度あがいて逆らっても 誰も
逃れられない 運命の輪は
ひぐらしがなく頃 回りだすよ


とうりゃんせ とうりゃんせ 行きはよいよい
このみち 帰りは怖い あぁ…

ここで生まれて ここで果てるの?
何度あがいて逆らっても 誰も
逃れられない 運命の輪は
ひぐらしがなく頃 回りだすよ

轟き叫ぶ空 幽玄の戸が開き さぁ次は誰の番?
人身御供の 悲しい唇が歌うよ
今度こそ 明けない夜を切り裂いて

  1. Love the chorus (very addictive), but the rest isn’t interesting at all. Also, this short ver. has one of the sloppiest editing (full size->short) I ever heard.

  2. Omg, I totally loved this song. x3 I can’t wait until the full version’s out. =P Eiko Shimamiya is the best! this song really has the Higu feel to it lol. ^^

  3. wow…eiko’s really progressed through her higurashi period:

    Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni – beautiful, in an eerie way that gives you this ominous feeling…
    Naraku no Hana – a bit more ‘pop’-feeling, but it reflects Kai well
    WHEEL OF FORTUNE (Unmei no Wa) – EPIC!!! i seriously cannot wait for the full song. I CANNOT WAIT *spaz attack*

  4. oh gosh, it sounds beautiful.

    hate the instrumental intro.
    sounds like the same instrumental structure of higurashi no naku koro ni. (the intro, i mean.)

  5. a freaking boring 40 second intro!

    but, the rest is beautiful.

    Yes. a wonderful progress in her line of songs that are just unforgettable.
    Her songs always make me feel like crying though.

    okay, this time i’m done. 😀

  6. YaY I love this song especially the electric guitar intro and then it transitions into eikos voice, I really Cant wait for the movie!!

  7. the full version’s out!!! and it’s gorgeousss

  8. Full version?! Must get~

  9. OK, so I said the short size had ridiculous editing, yet here it is the same… TBH, I’m disappointed. It’s just instrumental verse -> vocal chorus playing over and over and doesnt get interesting until the last minute…

  10. The intro was waaaaay too long. I liked the end.

  11. Aww man this song is so awesome!

    I like the intro! Illustrates the theme of the series and her music..

    I thought every part of song was good, it kept me absorbed O.O

    Can’t wait to see the movie >< I hope we don’t hafta wait too long!

    Btw, does anyone have a download of this song? I can’t find it anywhere D=

  12. Hello again! 🙂 Asking for your permission to use the lyrics on a fanlisting again – just got the approval for this song.

    And while I’m here, could I also use your translation for the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni fanlisting?

  13. @ Marek:
    Yes, you may.

  14. Greatest thanks, again! 🙂

  15. wow

    i cant believe they published the lyrics here…
    cool, people say im weird, well cause i listen to Eiko-san’s song
    alot, and some of her songs are put on the anime Higurashi
    WARNING!!
    DO NOT WATCH HIGURASHI IF YOUR YOUNGER THAN THE AGE 13!!!
    ITS VERY VIOLENT!!!

  16. AND I MEAN REALLY VIOLENT!!! SO DON’T WATCH IT!!!!

  17. These lyrics are disturbing in all th right ways. 🙂
