Wagakki Band – Senbonzakura

Lyrics:

Senbonzakura yoru ni magire, kimi no koe mo todokanai yo
Seiran no sora haruka kanata sono kousenjuu de uchinuite

Daitanfuteki ni haikara kakumei
Rairairakuraku hansen kokka
Hinomaru-jirushi no nirinsha korogashi
Akuryou-taisan ai-shii-bii-emu

Kanjousen o hashirinukete touhonsensou nan no sono
Shounen shoujo sengoku musou ukiyo no manima ni

Senbonzakura yoru ni magire, kimi no koe mo todokanai yo
Koko wa utage hagane no ori sono dantoudai de mioroshite

Sanzen sekai tokoyo no yami nageku uta mo kikoenai yo
Seiran no sora haruka kanata sono kousenjuu de uchinuite

Hyakusenrenma no mitame wa shoukou
Ittarikittari no oiran douchuu
Aitsu mo koitsu mo minna de atsumare
Senja no koushin one two san shi

Senjoumon o kugurinukete anraku joudo yakuharai
Kitto saigo wa daidan’en hakushu no aima ni

Senbonzakura yoru ni magire, kimi no koe mo todokanai yo
Koko wa utage hagane no ori sono dantoudai de mioroshite

Sanzen sekai tokoyo no yami nageku uta mo kikoenai yo
Kibou no oka haruka kanata sono senkoudan o uchiagero

Kanjousen o hashirinukete touhonsensou nan no sono
Shounen shoujo sengoku musou ukiyo no manima ni

Senbonzakura yoru ni magire, kimi no koe mo todokanai yo
Koko wa utage hagane no ori sono dantoudai o tobiorite

Senbonzakura yoru ni magire kimi wa utai boku wa odoru
Koko wa utage hagane no ori saa kousenjuu o uchimakure

Translation:

After a bold and audacious Westernization revolution,
this is now an open and upright anti-war nation.
As I pedal forward my bicycle marked with the Japanese flag,
evil spirits will disperse from my intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Looping the belt line, I don’t care if I’m constantly on the move.
Boys and girls must be unrivaled during the warring era, in the floating world.

Thousands of cherry trees dissolve into the night. Not even your voice will reach.
This is a banquet inside a steel jail cell. Look down on us from your guillotine.

The whole world is shrouded in hellish darkness. Not even a lamenting song is audible.
With your raygun, shoot out the azure sky and the far distance.

Hundreds of fights will give one the apperance of an officer.
The courtesans are going here and there on a parade for their regular guests.
Everyone, assemble here now.
It’s a march of the saints. One! Two! Three! Four!

To pass through the gate to dhyāna[1], and achieve nirvana with cleansing,
the closing act must be a happy finale, accompanied by applause from the audience.

Thousands of cherry trees dissolve into the night. Not even your voice will reach.
This is a banquet inside a steel jail cell. Look down on us from your guillotine.

The whole world is shrouded in hellish darkness. Not even a lamenting song is audible.
The hill of hope is in the far distance, so shoot up your flashlight grenade.

Looping the belt line, I don’t care if I’m constantly on the move.
Boys and girls must be unrivaled during the warring era, in the floating world.

Thousands of cherry trees dissolve into the night. Not even your voice will reach.
This is a banquet inside a steel jail cell, so jump off from your guillotine.

Thousands of cherry trees dissolve into the night. You will sing, and I will dance.
This is a banquet inside a steel jail cell, so shoot randomly and ceaselessly with your raygun.
