Translation: Dark Side Meditation (The Alfee)

It's been a busy day, so more Alfee tonight, with limited comments. This time around, it's the enigmatic Dark Side Meditation, the second track on the örb album. There's an interesting progression there if you listen to it after Hysteric Psychedelic Infinity.

Check out the song here, and the translation below.


Original kanji for the romanization found here.

Song Title: Dark Side Meditation
Artist: The Alfee
Album: örb

fuan na ichinichi ga hajimaru
kotoba ha meiro no naka de yukiba wo ushinau
aa anata ga koko ni ite hoshii
dare yori mo soba ni ite hoshii


An uncertain day has dawned
And my words have lost their way in the maze
Ah, how I want you here with me!
More than anyone, I want you beside me

dareka ga ima
tousui he no tobira wo tataita


But someone has knocked
On the door to obsession

Crash out zetsubou no RABIRINSU kowasareta risei
Flash back kioku no kanata de kesarete yuku chisei
Dark Side Meditation
yami ni dakarete


Crash Out of shattered reason, this labyrinth of despair
Flash Back to neglected knowledge deep within my memory
Dark Side Meditation
Be embraced by darkness

genwaku sareta tokai no IRUUJON
shiroku moeru taiyou ni kokoro mo tsukarehatete
aa anata ni ima sugu aitai
sono koe wo kikasete sono koe wo


I chased a mirage of a dazzling city
But my soul collapsed under the white-burning sun
Ah, how I want to see you now!
Your voice, please, let me hear your voice

soushitsu he no PUROROOGU
tobira wo tataite


Prepared for defeat
I knock on the door

Crash out nigedashite mitai ima me no mae no subete kara
Flash back meisou no kanata ni samayou tooi kioku
Dark Side Meditation
yami ni dakarete


Crash Out, when I wish to run from everything that is before me
Flash Back to the memory lingering deep in the subconscious
Dark Side Meditation
Be embraced by darkness

soshite nanimonai ichinichi ga owari
yagate tameiki ni yoru ha michibikarete yuku


Then, this day of emptiness will be behind me
And sighs will guide me along into the night

aa anata ni dakishimete hoshii
nureta yume hageshii yasashisa de


Ah, how I want you to hold me!
In tear-stained dreams, with passionate kindness

jiko henkoku
kono mune no tobira wo hiraite


In a revolution of self,
I throw open the door to my heart

Crash out zetsubou no RABIRINSU kowasareta risei
Flash back kioku no kanata de kesarete yuku chisei


Crash Out of shattered reason, this labyrinth of despair
Flash Back to neglected knowledge deep within my memory

nemurenu yoru gensou he no SERENAADE kanaderu
odoritsudzukeru tsubasa no oreta tenshitachi yo
hitotoki no yokubou no umi ni ima subete wo yudanete
jibun de ha nai jibun ni ai ni yuku sono tame ni


On sleepless nights, I play a serenade to illusions
To all the broken-winged angels that continue to dance
I say, devote everything to the indulgence of the moment
And search for a self that is not yourself

Dark Side Meditation
hitomi tojite
Dark Side Meditation
muishiki no kabe
Dark Side Meditation
yami no BEERU
yoru no shijima ni dakare...


Dark Side Meditation
Close your eyes, and be embraced
Dark Side Meditation
By the wall of unconsciousness,
Dark Side Meditation
The veil of darkness,
And the silence of night...
