Though the Scent Lingers, the Flower Scattered
Vocals: senya
Lyrics: Kamasetora
Composition: ZUN
Arrangement: Iceon
Circle: Yuuhei Satellite
Adapted from Touhou ~ Mountain of Faith: The Gensokyo Gods Loved

Though the scent lingers, the flower scattered one day
It couldn’t even allow me to wander…

The flowers in full boom
taught me one day that living just for the sake of it is a sin
We can’t be parted and I can’t part from you
The feelings I hold only make my heart excited

orbital ring

Lyrics: Asaki
Composition: ZUN
Arrangement: Minami Yasuhiro
Circle: M-style
Adapted from Touhou ~the Embodiment of Scarlet Devil: U.N. Owen is Her?

In the room where I can’t see anything, not even the flow of time reaches here
My throat grows hoarse and I forget words, unable to even speak
Years and eras pass, yet I don’t realize my own sins
“I’m here,” I cried with a hoarse voice
“I’m here,” …wanting you to notice me, I slash your throat
“I’m here,” …I don’t reach anyone
“Hurry up and find me,” how long should I cry for?
The room is cold and dark, so hurry up and let me out of here

In the sound of the red black tea dripping, I gouge you deep when I toy with you

Lyrics: Haruka
Arrangement: Minoshima Masayoshi

Even if I’m in the midst of flowing time, I feel languid, look, spinning around and around

I don’t know about my surroundings; I am who I am, that’s it
