Japanese lyrics

刹那を感じて
今この手に残るリアルが
叫ぼうとしてる 譲れないと

果てしない空が 青くのしかかるほど
僕らは願った その先の空へと
愛したものすら フェイクだったとしても
愛したこの意志まで 奪わせはしない

for tears 背負うすべてを強さに
frontier 切り裂いてゆく 絶望の最前線を

光の速さで 暗闇駆け抜けて
君のその手をもう離しはしない
誓いを刻んだ Sword
輝き出した切っ先はきっと
明日を開く導となれ

どこまで飛べれば 辿り着けるのだろう
か弱い翼に 風よ吹けと願った
愛した記憶を 現実が壊そうと
微か届いた声に もう迷いはしない

no fears 運命を変える勇気
torchlight 胸に抱く火を 希望への導火線へ

光より速く この空を昇って
離れた手をもう一度掴むため
痛みを忘れた Soul
鋼より強くなれたならきっと
檻を破る力となれ

刹那を感じて この瞬間駆け抜けて
絶望か希望か 賽は振られた
この手に Sword & Soul
信じる意志は今ここできっと
声を上げる 明日へ行けと

English translation

I can feel this instant
The few remaining shards of reality now lies in my hand
As I’m about to shout, I won’t hand them over

As the endless sky almost becomes a pure blue
We wished for a sky even beyond that
Even if the things we loved turn out to be fakes
I won’t let anyone take my own determination I so loved

For tears
I shoulder everything with sheer strength
Frontier
I’ll slash the front line of despair

Running on the speed of light, I hack through the darkness
No words are needed, if it’s for the hand of yours
A promise chiseled on the sword
Brightly shines from the blade’s tip
That’s sure to open up the path to tomorrow

If I can fly anywhere, maybe I can finally go there
I prayed to the wind, blow on my frail wings
I let reality destroy my beloved memories
But as I heard that voice that barely reached my ear, I stopped hesitating

No fears
I have the courage to alter my fate
Torchlight
The flame I embraced is what will light the fuse for my dreams

Running faster than light, I soar to the skies
And one more time catching those hands I let go before
A soul that forgot its wounds
When it becomes stronger than steel
That’s sure to be a power that can destroy the cage

I can feel this instant, I run through this moment
Is it despair or hope? The die has been cast
In my hands are sword and soul
This is the will I’ve believed in
That’s sure to bring us to tomorrow, just shout it out!
