志恩 ~ ムック

「志恩」
ムック

その花 青く 儚く と
憐れみ 乞う は 泣き蛍
燃える窓 青空 赤く
日が昇る 夕空 青く

がんじがらめの正論 反闘争
緑す べきなら 尚 理想
断裁は不可能 我が身の喧騒
水を欲す 土に還るのなら

減殺生涯を物憂いす 葛藤
減殺開眼を物怖じ得る 幻想

空高く 生き往かん 花へ映した 君を 想う
嘆くのなら 水を能え 星の雨音
響け 響け

感覚など遠に消え去った過去
見えずと吐き出した幾千の嘘
賛美か、否 屈辱の雨 傲慢昨今の恥を知れ
見えずなど 狂言の雑事

空高くへ 生き往かん 花へ映した 君の 声を
「枯れてはてるな」名はシオン
強き願いを 胸に抱いた
この 声

‘Shion’ {‘Kindness of One’s Intentions’}*
by MUCC

Fireflies of grief, greenly, fleetingly
asking that flower for compassion,
A burning window, blue sky, crimson
the sun rises, evening sky, blue

A logical argument for oppression, anti-conflict
If it should turn green it’d be all the more ideal
Severance is impossible, the clamour of my body
I want water if I’m to return to the earth

Languishing away my diminishing lifetime, discord
Acquiring cowardice with diminishing enlightenment, illusions

I can’t go on living high in the sky, I think of you projected on a flower
If I am to mourn make water possible, sound of the meteor shower
echo, echo

The past into which sensation has long vanished
Thousands of lies spewed out unseen
Glorification?  No, a rain of disgrace, know the shame of these arrogant times
The unseen small errands of a farce

I can’t go on living high in the sky, I think of you projected on a flower
“Don’t wither away!” its name is SHION**
I embraced that determined wish in my heart
this  voice

* The title is a play on words because usually “shion” would be written 「師恩」meaning the kindness of a teacher, however the first kanji has been switched to 「志」which means “intention” or “motive”.
** Here “shion” is written in katakana to give it the meaning of another homonym.  “Shion” is also the name of the aster flower (Aster tartaricus) in Japanese.
