Shikata Akiko – Katayoku no Tori (One-Winged Bird)
Are you without sin?
How heavy is my punishment?
Are you aware of that which has no voice?
Are you aware of your own sins?
Are you aware of the wrondoings piling up in your life?
Don’t you notice these tainted wings of yours?
Did you just deliberately throw yourself into hell?
This open wound is like a crimson rose
This hatred lodged in my heart begins to bloom
And soon it will feed on your life
I’ll take it away tainting this world in this beautiful red
We are all tainted beings. Maybe we should try to accept it instead of trying to play saints.
Menschen sind nicht dafür geboren uneigennützig zu sein.
You shouldn’t try to. It’ll feed on your soul and slowly destroy it.
Irgendwann wird sie verblassen, verschwinden.
We might be angels with tainted wings. Angels that escaped the void of being a saint.
Du kannst nicht immer geben.
