shizuku hitotsu hitotsu hitotsu shitataru you nishirazu shirazu tsunori tsunotte yukuwatashi no oku no oku no oku no chiisana hi ga tomoru no wo miteiru> Drip, drip, drip ... as each droplets continues to drop [09]> I will try to explain for it without you fully understanding it..> While inside my deepest subconscious [08]> I've seen a little light, is being lit...
iro wo kasane kasane kasane nuritashitemodokoka kyozou jimite mieru jigazouhako wo akete akete aketemo sono naka ninanimo nai to shitara> It would not make any differences even if you keep changing the light's colors> The self-portrait of that person's image will still look like a jigsaw puzzle> Its like the more you continue opening up the mysterious box, and when you tried looked into it> It will just keeps continue coming up empty [03]
juuryoku ni sakaratte ukabiagaru tetsu no fune wa "doko e yuku no ka?"> Sir Gravity asks to the already sinking Iron Ships, "Where you all are heading to?" (Iron Ships = Space Ships)

aa naze kurayami mo naku hikari wo shirieru darouare wa saigo no tomoshibiiie youyaku todoki hajimeta raikou> Oh, how would you know that light could not exists without darkness?> Though, that was thought to be the last source of light..> Nay, perhaps I believed that the light may still be on its way [04]
hito wa hitori hitori hitori chigatteitemosaigo ni yuku basho wa onaji deshounani wo naite naite idaite ikitemo sore wa oite yuku yakusoku> If each and every one of us are all different> but we still have to gather at the very same place right? [06]> Why are you still crying, regretting and having remorse> over an already broken promise?
shuuchakuchi e mukattenoriawaseta hito no mure wa mi wo yoseau no> we all are on the same starry journey, heading towards to the greatest, furthest ends of space..> all boarding the already-so-crowded ship that seemingly was already about to sink.. [07]
aa naze ayamachi mo naku jibun wo shirieru daroukore wa tsugunai no kirokuiie, anata ni shitatameteiru tegami> aa why are you so sure of it, maybe cause you already knew it all along> this could have been a rule of atonement (for everyone)> nay, it could also just be a simple instruction / message (just for you)
ima, ima ga umareteima, ima ga owaruima ima ima wo tsumiageru ima> the moment we are born> the moment that we simply begins to end> the moment that connects with all other moments
aa naze toritomemo naku namida ga ochiru no daroukore ga nozonda ketsumatsuiie kore koso shizuka na maeburewatashi ga machiwabiteita hajimari> aa why do you continuously kept on crying, while your tears kept falling non-stop [05]> because this is something that has already been decided (like an obligation of sorts)> no, now this is truly the actual "Silent Harbinger" [01]> It was the true beginning that I was long awaiting for.. [02]

Comments and other nonsense:[01]. Silent Herald, or something like that.. which the Crimson Wizard is referring to her husband as, the Mei'li de ren.[02]. An actual true ending, of all other endings.. the end is also the beginning or prelude of something else new..[03]. Often, curiosity will only leads to more disappointments[04]. Maybe, due to the light source at a very great distance[05]. Tears that looks like falling Star-Dusts[06]. Later in the hereafter life, doesn't it also means "we are all the same in the end?" Maaya asked.[07]. This ship or spaceship, could have been "Earth" all along..[08]. She probably refer to the dream she has had[09]. wtf is this.. too abstract for me to translate or understand. If I were to explain it in words, its like she sees or hears something like a droplet in her mind, and that place is like really dark..

Song Dedication: The Crimson Wizard's thoughts towards the Mei'li de ren...

Other notes:Its not really related to the song, but I just made this song interpretation based on my understanding. Read more at my tumblr blog, mumualpaka.tumblr.com

Thoughts:After doing song interpretations, I started to think there are even more questions now.. "Simple instruction / message"
Quotes:"Misss Blum, she always insisted that it wasn't a choice at all. But always rather been an obligation. An obligation to always be true to the subject." - Quotes from, I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House (2016).
