PIERROT – クリアスカイ (Clear Sky) Translation

Kanji

Translation

Title: Clear Sky*

 

I’m sure that this apparently unending blue** will never show a sing of the end

to us lower creatures, smashed down here, without even a single moment to the notice the perfectly clear sky.

 

That’s because our genes, which break the rules without any fear,

even though they lose their place to go to, they keep repeating the same cruel history.

 

And when that time comes, I feel that my arms will be able to protect you.

 

That’s because only I can hear your screaming voice

buried in the midst of the noise of the crazy mechanical city.

 

Stay with your hands up, so that I can see you

 

Wait for me without hesitation in this breaking down world,

on the hill where we made this promise that day,

let’s embrace while being hit by the grey rain pouring down,

and while being close and wet, let’s fall asleep.

 

Surrounded by the black lead angels of salvation, let’s kiss

 

Wait for me without hesitation in this breaking down world,

on the hill where we made this promise that day,

let’s embrace and fall down onto the scorching hot asphalt,

and while being burned and close, let’s fall asleep.

 

Notes and Other

*= the title is kept in katakana, to indicate a warped image of the blue sky.

**= the blue being, of course, the colour of the sky.

Pierrot took the ultra-cliché imagery of the blue sky of love and turned into a warped love song, where the vows of the love are just a mere detail about the imminent catastrophe that seems to be falling down on Earth. This is actually the first time I translated something from them, and I’m really impressed how casually they managed to pull this off.
