Nightmare – Alumina

Another one of the songs i listen to:

流れる時間の中瞬く刹那的煌きを
この世の記憶に刻むため 歩き続けるBeliever
A momentary sparkle twinkles 
within the flowing time
I’m a Believer who can keep walking 
so to engrave into this world’s memories
誰にも見れないユメを見て 要らないものは全て捨てた
ゆずれない想い この胸に宿して
I had a dream that no one else could have 
And I threw away everything that I didn’t need
Thoughts that I can’t surrender dwell in my chest
まだリアルイデアルの狭間にいて 犠牲の枷に足をとられても
溢れる衝動押さえきれない 強く求める心があるから
And if I’m still in the rift between reality and ideals 
Even if my feet fall victim to shackles of sacrifice
My overflowing impulse isn’t fully repressed 
Because I have a heart that yearns powerfully
この街中溢れるモノにまみれ うつつを抜かすようなことは無い
未来へと繋がる道の果てで この手に掴むものを見たいから
Things like being smeared by those who overflow in this entire city 
or being infatuated won’t happen to me
Because at the end of the road that connects to the future, 
I want to see something that’ll grab onto my hand
瞼を閉じ意識の海に浮かんで 思い描く 理想を手にするそのときを I close my eyes and it surfaces in my sea of consciousness: 
the moment when I’ll get the ideal that I’d pictured
限りある「生」をこの世に受け 枯れゆくだけは愚かに等しい
他の誰もが持ち得ないもの 「自分自身」という名の結晶へ
To merely receive limited “life” in this world 
And rot away is equal to being stupid
Go toward that which no one else can have- 
the crystal known as “myself”
キレイゴトを突き通すこと いつか誠へ変わる
頑に信じ続けたい It’s just my faith. The absolute truth.
Piercing through the whitewash 
will turn into the truth someday
I want to keep believing in it stubbornly; 
It’s just my faith. The absolute truth.
流れる時間の中瞬く刹那的煌きを
この世の記憶に刻むため 歩き続けるBeliever
A momentary sparkle twinkles 
within the flowing time
I’m a Believer who can keep walking 
so to engrave into this world’s memories

There are other translations as well, such as the below

Amidst the passing time, a twinkling and ephemeral sparkling
I’m a believer that keeps walking, to carve his memories of it into the world

Having dreams that no one else can, I cast aside the things I don’t need
Feelings that I won’t surrender reside in my heart

There is still a gap between ideals and reality, even though the shackles of sacrifice prevent my feet from moving
I can’t suppress the overflowing urge, because my heart is very wanting

“Lies”, “fear”, “emptiness”, “grief”, I’m not so weak that I’m
Gripped by all these kinds of negativities, I’m a trickster who knows no solitude

Flocks of buildings stab into the night sky, look up to the sky in which I can’t see any stars
I ask myself “aren’t you lost?”
The city is smeared with overflowing things
It’s not something that’s unrealistic
At the end of the road that connects us to the future, I want to see what I’ve got in my hand

Closing my eyes, I float on the sea of my senses, and envision it
The day that I have my ideals within my grasp

It’s accepted in this world that “righteousness” has it’s limits; and withering is foolishly the same way
Something that no one else has, toward a crystallization called “myself”

Piercing through simplicity, one day it will change into reality
I want to continue to obstinately believe, it’s just my faith. The absolute truth.

Amidst the passing time, a twinkling and ephemeral sparkling
I’m a believer that keeps walking, to carve his memories of it into the world
