Day 9: Favorite Lyric

Day 9 of 30 Day L’Arc~en~Ciel Challenge!

Favorite lyric: Finale.


Merupakan track pendamping “Neo Universe” yang dirilis sebagai single 19 January 2000. Finale juga merupakan ost Ring 0: Birthday, prequel film horror “Ring”.
Single “Neo Universe” sendiri terjual lebih dari satu juta kopi. Tetsuya yang menciptakan lagunya, hyde menulis lyricnya. What a perfect combination.

Kenapa aku suka lyricnya? Because it is so dark.
Aku nggak suka love story yang lovey-dovey, itu salah satu alasan kenapa aku suka L’Arc~en~Ciel, karena mereka menulis lagu cinta tanpa mengumbar cinta.

Mungkin karena aku agak Masochist, hehe. Dengerin finale rasanya sakit banget, it’s beautiful yet it gives you pain. And I love the pain. So much pain, cinta yang tidak seharusnya terjadi tapi masih ingin dipertahankan.

“Even if it means defying god, I’ll return to you somehow”

Ah~~ hyde..

The Lyric:

I found a beauty so faint and fleeting,
Still, I held it close in silence to make sure that it wouldn’t break
Searching for each other in the moon’s hiding place
And we felt the pain of eternity and destiny

I touched the cracking lips of grief
Blocking out the warnings,
And I became numb to all the signs
But I see on the inside…

The world is so perfect inside of this last finale
But facing the sunlight, tomorrow is just too bright
Turning around, you stop time, surpass it
And watch it, cold from society
You were just an innocent girl.

In gods mirror you twisted your smile to alter the spun thread
O this pieced together, broken dream world we choose to live in

Forever again my prayer is unanswered from those above
The ocean, my only guide, the water surf is wavering
I couldn’t save you and forced to watch as you crumble
Even if it means defying god, I’ll return to you somehow

The world is so perfect inside of this last finale
But facing the sunlight, tomorrow is just too bright
Turning around, you stopped time, surpassed it
And watched it, cold from society
You were just an innocent girl.
