千里眼見通せぬ 邪鬼

己遠変えた 修羅の道
百鬼夜行は 蛇乃目
己乃姿 通しては
暗中模索 蛇乃如し


磊塊乃民 命果て
己乃命 悍しく

Jakō ohanatsu henbō wa
Oboro zukiyō ni utsushi
Senrigan mitōsenu Jaki

Onore okaeta Shura no michi
Hyakki yakō wa Ja no me
Onore no sugata Tooshite wa
Anchū mosaku Ja no gotoshi

Dantōdai ni kakerareshi
Kesera kera kera warau
Kubinamazukami tami wa iu
Rasetsukoku kitaru

Raikai no tami Inochihate
Yotei chō wakuzurenu
Onore no inochi ozomashiku
Kono yo wa shura no kuni

Onore wasure shura to nari subete mu to naru

⇵ Fan-Translation ⇅
There is no official translation for the lyrics to this song. The translation below was made by fans.

the transformation triggered by the musk
reflecting on the night of the hazy moon
displaced * tricky * wicked
the cleric's eye can't see, this demon.

the road of carnage which changed my self
lawlessness running rampant is a bull's-eye
searching the dark through this form, like a snake.

I've been put on the executioner's stage.
they jeer and laugh wickedly.
holding upon high my severed head, the peasants say,
"the kingdom of demons is upon us"

manners * nature * estrangement * demons

many peasants died.
the hope for peace was destroyed.
this life is revolting
this is a world of carnage.

manners * nature * estrangement * demons

I throw away myself, and become the carnage, all becomes nothing.


Trivia Edit

  • Although the lyrics to this song were not included in the booklet of DUM SPIRO SPERO, a picture of the lyrics was posted on Dir En Grey's special website for the album.
  • 褻世羅怪良気良 Kesera kera kera is an ateji, a case of kanji that are used as phonetic symbols instead of for the meaning. In this case, the meaning is supposed to be a cackling, mocking laughter. It could also be a pun on ケセラセラ kesera sera, "que sera, sera".
