(v2 2018 – small updates)

All through my burning red body of a hundred flames
I’ve seen ten billion solitudes through this time, all the same

That figure, flapping its wings, flying out to liberty
Looks so cramped, as I’ve realized I’ve become not in the least bit free

“My loved one, I wish you to, last forever, always you”
I watched as your hand vanished into dust, as you took off, you knew

Swimming throughout the sky, a certain thought came to mind
Time steadily approaches my allotted life, I find

Out north on a cape by the sea
“The one” held all their faith, and they spilled in death, or so they say

Out west, in the mountains and trees
“The one” was sought and they defiled their blood in the name of their faith

Does happiness exist here? Or does it only seem
As if it were merely a part of a dream

For I’m more eager than most, aimlessly wandering
Toward that scenery that you once sought to see

It seems I’ve gathered many injuries along the way
And there’s no sign of recovery I can say

No wonder, the end of your blade that once had cut and slayed
Is reflecting the light back so decayed

All through my solid black eyes that seem to melt with shame
I’ve heard ten billion heartbeats throughout this time, all the same

So without more ado, pierce with it as you always do
Then you will arrive at the infinite fountain of youth

Long ago, I remember such a story was thought true
In the days of old they wandered, seeking the “bird of happiness” too

Yet I wonder if “he” himself was all that happy
Being owned in such a birdcage, and not in the least bit free

“The one” you sought so desperately
turned out to be just a bird straight from the ordinary

Silently, you threw down your blade,
your memento, and shed tears as you looked off into space

Where does happiness exist? Or does it only seem
As if it were once long ago, in a dream

If eternity never existed, we’d be okay
But it’s far too late to wish it all away

Really, the dust reminds me of this little story
One I’ve held close, however shabby I may be

And before parasites have completely devoured me
I hoped I could tell it to you secretly

I’m decaying day by day
I won’t last long anyway
I knew it was the end better than anyone today
I’ll ask a favor, okay? Why don’t you sing for me?
Say,
A song of the bird that sought happiness astray?

Does happiness exist here? Or does it only seem
As if it were merely part of a dream

That one scenery you sought to see turned out to be
A color of a reborn universe’s debris

Where does happiness exist? Or does it only seem
That I had control, once inside a dream

That one scenery you sought to see turned out to be
A color of planets and lives burning

(v1 2012)

All through my burning red body of a hundred flames

I’ve seen ten billion solitudes through this time, all the same

That figure, flapping its wings, flying to liberty

Looks so cramped, as I’ve realized I’ve become not in the least bit free

“My lover, I wish you to, last forever, always you”

I watched as your hand vanished into dust as you took off, you knew

Swimming throughout the sky, a certain thought came to mind

Time steadily approaches my allotted life, I find
Out in a northern cape too

“The one” held their all their faith, and they spilled in death, or so they say

Out on a western mound too

“The one” was sought and they defiled their blood in the name of their faith
Does happiness exist here? A question was once told

As if it were only a dream, it sold

For I’m more eager than most, aimlessly wandering

Towards that scenery that you once sought to see

It seems I’ve gathered many injuries along the way

And there’s no sign of recovery I can say

The end of your blade that you had once thrust, no wonder

Is dully bending the light back asunder
All through my solid black eyes that seem to melt with shame

I’ve heard ten billion heartbeats throughout this time, all the same

So without more ado, pierce it as you always do

Then you will arrive at the infinite fountain of youth

Long ago, I remember such a story was thought true

In the old days they wandered, seeking the “bird of happiness” too

Yet I wonder if “he” himself was all that happy

Being owned in such a birdcage, and not in the least bit free

“The one” you sought so desperately turned out to be just a bird straight from the ordinary

Silently, you threw down your blade, your memento, and shed tears as you looked off into space
Where does happiness exist? A question was once told

Once long ago that was a dream I still hold

If eternity never existed, they’d do well

But it was too late for them to even tell

Really, it’s a story reminded to me by the dust

I’ve cherished it, shabby as I am, I trust

And before parasites have completely devoured me

I hoped I could tell it to you secretly
I’m decaying day by day

I won’t last long anyways

I knew it was the end better than anyone today

I’ll ask a favor, okay? Why don’t you sing for me?

Hey?

A song of the bird that sought happiness astray?
Does happiness exist here? A question was once told

As if it were only a dream, it sold

That one scenery you sought to see turned out to be

A color of a traced universe maybe

Where does happiness exist? A question was once told

Once, I imagined a dream that I controlled

That one scenery you sought to see turned out to be

A color of planets and lives burning
