.hack//Roots 1st Ending Theme – Boukoku Kakusei Catharsis

Ruined Country Awakening Catharsis
Vocals: ALI PROJECT
Lyrics: Takarano Arika
Composition: Katakura Mikiya

The wall of grief is being stacked up
The foolish god is revered

Living is a cup of poison; who shall teach me
The trick to drink dry the bitterness of groundless fears?
The sage’s eagle is said to inhabit the sun
Only the flapping of its wings echoes

Darkness and light dwelt
In my two eyes; where are they?
I wonder if I must gaze
At the future

In the completely parched city of rubble
Connect the dots and lines
And nothing but meaningless things
Overflow

After you quell the body embraced
By the loneliness in the likeness of flames
Droplets drip into the culvert

Raising a cup of poison; even if this life is filled
The dream of death that I yearn for drifts ashore
Its talons cut into the fortress; for the aloof eagle
Only by flapping its wings, it soars up

Crucify me in that blue sky
I stand at the place where the heaven and earth come together

The flower- and fruit-like memories
Are only burnt and inflamed cast-off shells
I wonder where
The soul from that day went

I draw close to the cold skin and touch it
Combining the wound in my chest with other wounds
And I engrave here
The map that I must follow again

The world is an invisible wing
Shoot dead the one pure white feather
That was concealed in its dark shadow

Living is a congratulatory toast; the pleasure is passed orally
The thirsty laughter and breathing grow feeble
In the palms clasped together in consolation
Only the void expands

Ah, if I’m to be defeated honorably and fall apart beautifully
Ahead of the ecstasy, you still exist

The wall of grief is broken through
The foolish people are massacred

Living is a cup of poison; who shall teach me
The trick to drink dry the sorrow I love?
The quiet eagle is said to sleep under the moon
With only a cry, it lands

Raising a congratulatory toast; even if my life is filled
The fleeting game of death is endless
Its talons cut into the fortress; for the aloof eagle
Only by flapping its wings, it soars up

Crucify me in that blue sky
I gaze at the era that gives birth to crime and punishment

Nageki no kabe wa   tsumiagerarete
Oroka no kami wa   tatematsurareru

Ikiru wa dokuhai   kiyuu no kurushimi o
Nomihosu sube o dare ga sazukeyou
Taiyou ni sumu to iu kenja no washi
Habataki dake ga kodamasuru

Kono futatsu no me ni yadotta
Yami to hikari   sono docchi de
Boku wa ashita o
Mitsumeru beki na no darou

Kawakikitta gareki no machi
Ten to sen o tsunagiawase
Imi nado nai koto bakari
Afurete yuku

Honoo no gotoki kodoku
Daku karada   shizumete wa
Ankyo e to shitatatteku shizuku

Kakageru dokuhai   kono sei wa michite mo
Kogareru shi no yume wa nagaretsuku
Toride ni kuikomu tsume   kokou no washi
Habataki dake ga   maiagaru

Ano soukyuu ni takkei ni shite kure tamae
Ten to chi ga musubu basho ni boku wa tatsu

Kajitsu no you na kioku-tachi wa
Yakare tadare nukegara dake
Ano hi no tamashii wa
Doko e itta no darou

Tsumetai hada   yosete furete
Mune no kizu to kizu o awase
Futatabi tadoru beki chizu
Koko ni kizamu

Sekai wa mienu tsubasa
Sono kage ni kakusareta
Junpaku no hitohane   itome yo

Ikiru wa shukuhai   kuchiutsushi no keraku
Kawaku warai mo iki mo taedae ni
Maguwaiau nagusami no te no hira ni
Munashisa dake ga fukurande

Aa gyokusai to utsukushiku chiri yuku naraba
Koukotsu no saki ni mada kimi ga iru

Nageki no kabe wa   tsukikuzusarete
Oroka no tami wa   minagorosareru

Ikiru wa dokuhai   aisuru kanashimi o
Nomihosu sube o dare ga sazukeyou
Gekka ni nemuru to iu shizuka no washi
Nakigoe dake ga   maiorite

Kakageru shukuhai   wagasei wa michite mo
Hakanai shi no yuugi wa hate mo naku
Toride ni kuikomu tsume   kokou no washi
Habataki dake ga maiagaru

Ano soukyuu ni takkei ni shite kure tamae
Tsumi to batsu o umu toki o boku wa miru
