Vampire Knight Opening Theme – Futatsu no Kodou to Akai Tsumi

Two Pulses and Red Sins
Vocals: ON/OFF
Lyrics: mavie
Composition: Kurosu Katsuhiko
Arrangement: h-wonder

Shaking in red, in red, in red
To the edge of the dream, of the dream
We can’t be separated

Already, every time when I’m stifled to death when I give up again and again
My emotions that have no place to go wake me up
Your flawless smile knows
That it’s an existence so distant that it’s cruel

Even though the wound that can’t be healed only eats away at my heart
Even now I can’t completely hold back my thoughts (that dwell) (within) the darkness

Shaking in red, in red, in red
To the edge of the dream, of the dream
We met, and destiny begins to turn
It’s a secret that no one, no one knows about
I fall, I fall, I fall
And I certainly can’t return anymore, even if I carve out my my sins

While I was walking in the abyss of loneliness, I was saved
By realistic eyes that never change
But a shadow born as the light is bright
Deeply and pronouncedly creeps up to me

The two pulses are exactly like mirrors facing each other
The (pains) are similar (but) different and continue infinitely

Burning in red, in red, in red
Erasing everything, everything
An unfulfilled illusion begins to move
Strongly, strongly
Overcoming, overcoming, overcoming the fleeting night
And I certainly can’t escape, even if I drown in my sins

Shaking in red, in red, in red
To the edge of the dream, of the dream
We met, and destiny begins to turn
It’s a secret that no one, no one knows about
I fall, I fall, I fall
And I certainly can’t return anymore, even if I carve out my my sins

Futatsu no Kodou to Akai Tsumi
Vocals: ON/OFF

Akaku akaku akaku yurete
Yume no yume no hate e

Mou nando mo akiramete wa oshikorosu tabi
Ikiba no nai kanjou ga me o samashiteku
Kegare no nai sono hohoemi zankoku na hodo
Tooi sonzai da to wakaru yo

Ienai kizu   kokoro mushibamu dake na no ni
Yami no (naka ni) ima mo (yadoru) omoi o osaekirenai

Akaku akaku akaku yurete
Yume no yume no hate e
Deatte shimatta unmei ga mawaridasu
Dare mo dare mo shiranai himitsu
Ochite ochite ochite
Mou modorenai   tsumi o kizande mo   kitto

Kodoku no fuchi arukinagara sukuwarete ita
Donna toki mo kawaranai riaru na hitomi
Demo hikari ga mabushii hodo umareru kage wa
Fukaku irokoku shinobiyoru yo

Futatsu no kodou   maru de awase kagami no you ni
Niteru (keredo) chigau (itami) mugen ni tsuzuite iku

Akaku akaku akaku moete
Subete subete keshite
Kanau koto no nai maboroshi ga ugokidasu
Tsuyoku tsuyoku hakanai yoru o
Koete koete koete
Nogarerarenai   tsumi ni oborete mo   kitto

Akaku akaku akaku yurete
Yume no yume no hate e
Deatte shimatta unmei ga mawaridasu
Dare mo dare mo shiranai himitsu
Ochite ochite ochite
Mou modorenai   tsumi o kizande mo   kitto

  1. oh maa~n I totally love this song! *___* I searched for the lyrics e~verywhere! thanks for posting them up here! 😀

  2. Such great lyrics. It reminds me of Zero so much.

  3. YAY! Finally ive been looking for these lyrics everywhere!thx for postin

  4. Oh wow thank you >W< i fell in love with this song as soon as i heard thank you so much for posting the lyrics

  5. Oh, I was looking for the lyrics of this song. Glad it’s on here. =D
    I’m curious: since aku means ‘red’, does that mean ku means ‘in’?
    And yurete probably means shaking, yeah?

  6. Nope, “akai” = ‘red’ and the ‘-ku’ here modifies ‘akai’ into ‘redly’, or otherwise adverb form of ‘red’.

  7. Wow, thanks for posting these lyrics- I love both the opening and ending, the manga and the anime~ ❤ ^^

  8. This song is so great thanks to whoever post the lyrics^.^

  9. It should be “wo” in:
    Yami no (naka ni) ima mo (yadoru) omoi o osaekirenai. The one and only “o” that stands alone 🙂

  10. I romanize を as ‘o’.

  11. In “Dare mo dare mo shiranai himitsu” I know that “shiranai himitsu” is “unknown secret” or something along those lines- but whenever I try to find a translation for “dare mo” I come up with “roll-off ancient skirt”

    Thanks so much for posting this ❤

    • “Daremo” (だれも) means “everyone, anyone”, but when it is used in a sentence with a negative verb, in this case “shiranai”, it means “no one”.
      So the whole thing : だれも、だれも知らない秘密
      A secret that no one, no one knows

  12. thanks so much for the lyrics!! :)) I love the song!

  13. Yeah, I love the name Yuuki so I changed my name legally to that, so I don’t wanna hear that I’m a poser or anything. Yeah, this song DOES explain Zero a lot. I love the manga, and I can’t wait until more episodes of the anime come out!

  14. Kaname (yes Kaname is my name)

    Yeah this song does explain Zero. But I like the opening theme song better than the ending one. 🙂

  15. It’s incredible the feelings that this song give to me! It’s a very great song! I love it so much

    Also, this manga cartoon is so impressive!

  16. Yuuki-chan (wendy)

    i love that songs! oh my… lol.. by the way.. the manga and the anime of Vampire Knight is so awesome!

  17. Yuuki-chan (wendy)

    oh.. and by another way… all the “vampire” in Vampire Knight are so HOT!!!!!!!!!!!! i wish i could go out with them… with Kaname and Zero especially! lol.. ^^

  18. where do you download it. plz give a link.

  22. thnx i just wuv dis song!!!!
    >_< i wuv vampire knight that i thank u sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. THanks for the lyrics! I think in the third line it’s: naido mo instead of nando mo..
    Not sure though XD I’m trying to learn the song right now so thanks again for the lyrics!


  24. the lyrics are awesome except at the end of the english translation kitto means surely and was probably just forgoten but still you should put surely at the end to make it better! just a suggestion! ^_^

  25. @ SavVy:
    ‘Kitto’ was translated as ‘certainly’ here.

  26. Thanks for translating the full version~ (Admirably quickly, too, as it seems that it was more-or-less yesterday).

  27. It might just be me but shouldn’t “oborerete” be “oborete” as I’m only hearing one “re”. (Part 7, last line.)

    Again, could just but me. ^^

  28. @ KingPin:
    Thanks for catching that! I mistyped.

  29. i’m sooooo freakin’ inlove with this song!!

  100. i love this song im almost done memorizing it

  101. i love this made for is the greatest.

  102. I luv thus song!!!! I luv listening to it, and now I luv it even more cuz I nu wat it says!!! XD

  103. wow, everyone seems to feel that this song reminds them of Zero, but it actually reminded me of Kaname…maybe because I’m sure most of you guys came from the anime, and I’ve only read the manga. Plus, the most recent developments in the manga make me think of these lyrics…

    I heard that the mangaka doesn’t want any more anime episodes to be made because she felt that the anime focused too much on Zero and implied that it would be Zero/Yuuki? If that’s so, I’m glad I stuck to the manga. I love Zero and all, but Kaname and Yuuki = destiny, in my opinion and in the manga 🙂

  104. my fwend made me write the whole english n original down
    ps i was unkown the 1 who repied 2 starrdustt dorz i was bored ;}

    Holy. Friggin’. Crap. I LOVE THIS SONG!!!! =D Thanks so much for putting it up! Vampire Knight was one of the best (although I must say I like FMAB better).
