Track 2: Rainbow of Nostalgia [望郷の虹]

Before you read and listen to this track, be sure to read the Booklet Story first!


Japanese & Code:

“カ口山 ワ口 ソ口凵 ワ口、 エら ソ口凵尺 冂ム巾モ エ冂 冂ムム? ナカモ尺モ エら 冂口.
ソモナ、 乃凵ナ 山口凵レワ 巾ソ 冂ム巾モ 乃モ ム チ尺エモ冂ワ?”
“ナカム冂ケ ソ口凵 Vモ尺ソ 巾凵匚カ、 エ’巾 ら口尺尺ソ, G口口ワー乃ソモ.
チ口尺 ム冂 エ巾巾エG尺ムナエ口冂 らカエア、 口チ ナカモ 凵冂エVモ尺らモ、 尺凵冂冂エ冂G…”

まりの音は零 美しい数字
見惚れながらも戸惑い その快楽へとちてく

うことなどえた 脆弱定数
れる幻想 意味なんてないのに

字宙定数 Λこのべて
禁忌の「コトソハ」たちが あのちてく…

ナカモ アエ………………………………….
“ナカム冂ケ ソ口凵 Vモ尺ソ 巾凵匚カ、 エ’巾 ら口尺尺ソ
G口口ワー乃ソモ. チ口尺 ム冂 エ巾巾エG尺ムナエ口冂 らカエア、
口チ ナカモ 凵冂エVモ尺らモ、 尺凵冂冂エ冂G…”

Romaji:

hajimari no oto wa zero, utsukushii suuji no mai wo
mihorenagara mo tomadoi sono kairaku e to ochite ku

utau koto nado oboeta zeijakuna teisuu
warikieru gensou imi nante nainoni

uchuu teisuu ramuda konoyo wo subete
kinki no kotonoha tachi ga ano ao ni kuchitte ku

English:

“HOW DO YOU DO, IS YOUR NAME IN NAA? THERE IS NO.
YET, BUT WOULD MY NAME BE A FRIEND?”
“THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I’M SORRY, GOOD-BYE.
FOR AN IMMIGRATION SHIP, OF THE UNIVERSE, RUNNING…”

The first sound is zero, a beautiful dance of a few lines
Losing one’s bearings while looking on in wonder descending into its pleasure

I remembered to sing, a fragile constant
Though explainable illusions are meaningless

Cosmological constant Λ governs this world
The forbidden utterances make this blue wither…

THE PI………………………………….

“THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I’M SORRY
, GOOD-BYE. FOR AN IMMIGRATION SHIP,
OF THE UNIVERSE, RUNNING…”


For the ‘nonsense’ lyrics, we took the text from the booklet – and mirrored it to find that it was broken English disguised as Japanese! Good luck making sense of it even then though. We have no guarantee that our ‘English’ reading of those lines are what was intended. And naturally, they don’t match the sung lines, which don’t seem to match any language. But there may be some familiar sounds in there. I definitely heard an ‘umi ni’ in there.
