BABEL ~ 9GOATS BLACK OUT

「BABEL」
9GOATS BLACK OUT

[貴方に]
人の嘘 焦がれたばかりに聳え立つ齟齬
足は泥濘 壊れ 太陽が焼きだす

運命 共存 自由 思想
(鳥は落ち犬は泥を啜る)

[恋する人よ]
苛立ち 波打つ身体 夜を売る少女
誘い出され 逃れ 君を待つ腐食の螺旋

高潔 富裕 権威 欺瞞
“A” “G”irl “T”o “C”ry
消費 貴賤 平等などない
(少女は泣き少年は消えた)

低く問う
「この螺旋は流れ星に届くかな?」
歓声が造る人の死は空高く積み上げられ
目を閉じていなさい そこは火の海

立身 香火 哀号 蝕
“A”bandon “G”amete “T”ocsin “C”lammy
混乱 悲壮 喚声 不情
(剥がれ毟り躊躇い墜ちる)

君に問う「その螺旋は願い事を叶えたのかい?」
繰り返す人々の死が上空高く葉を揺らすたびに
孤独を嫌い 徒花は凍える

the tower wrought havoc upon man.
人々は混沌の中。

‘BABEL’ *
by 9GOATS BLACK OUT

[To you]
Man’s lies, a towering contradiction simply due to craving,
Feet in the mire, breaking down, the sun burns

Fate   Coexistence   Freedom   Thought
(Birds fall and dogs sniff the mud)

[Oh, people who fall in love]
Irritation, swelling bodies, girls who sell the night,
Lured out, escaping, a spiral of corrosion awaits you

Virtue   Wealth   Authority   Deceit
“A” “G”irl “T”o “C”ry
Consumption   Rich and Poor   There’s no such thing as equality
(The girl cries and the boy disappears)

They ask in a low voice
“Will this spiral reach the shooting stars?”
Pile high into the sky the deaths of people built up by cheers,
Keep your eyes closed, there lies a sea of fire

Success   Incense Fire   Wails   Eclipse
“A”bandon “G”amete “T”ocsin “C”lammy
Chaos   Valor   Outcry   Inhuman
(Peeling off, plucked out, faltering and falling)

He asks you “Did that spiral grant what you wished for?”
Each time the recurring deaths of the people shake the leaves high in the sky,
they loathe the loneliness and the flower that bears no fruit freezes over

the tower wrought havoc upon man.
the people were amidst chaos.

* The title refers to the Biblical story of the Tower of Babel, an immense tower built by man as a testament to human achievement.  God was displeased with the builders’ arrogance so he confused their languages and scattered them.  The tower is often depicted in the shape of a spiral.
