Japanese Rōmaji Fan-Translation

羽を広げて飛びたい 君は揚羽の夢見る

蛹から羽を広げ 今にも飛び立ちそうで

相咲き乱れ エスカルゴとフォアグラの君に

愛しい蛹の君が 薄汚れた羽見せて

バラリグラリ薔薇バラの君 羽はもげて

廻り 廻る 廻った
答え繰り返して 繰り返されてゆく命を

君は溶け爛れて一つになり 混ざり合おうか

きっと人魚の様に 胃液のプール泳ぐ きっと揚羽の様に蛹は羽はやす

貴方なら許せるわね 残酷な生き物でも
足を地面に忘れたわ 残さないでね

Hane o hirogete tobitai Kimi wa ageha no yume miru
Hebigawa niai sō da ne…haku mu
Garagara no ame ni utare miugoki ga dekinakute ne
Esa ni naru no o matsu dake sa…kuchi ga hiraku

Sanagi kara hane o hiroge Ima ni mo tobitachi sō de
Kawaisa amatta kimi wa mō…otona ne
Hana ni koi o shita kimi wa mitsu o susuri susutte wa
Boku ni kizukazu sono mama de…kiba muku

Ai sakimidare Esukarugo to foa gura no kimi ni

Itoshii sanagi no kimi ga Usuyogoreta hane misete
Boku o furifuri futta ne…i no naka

Barari gurari bara bara no kimi Hane wa mogete
Hebi no kawa ga niau yō na?

Mawari Mawaru Mawatta
Kotae kurikaeshite Kurikaesarete yuku inochi o

Magari magaru magatta
Kimi wa toke tadarete hitotsu ni nari Mazari aō ka

Kitto ningyo no yō ni Ieki no pūru oyogu Kitto ageha no yō ni sanagi wa hane hayasu

Anata nara yuruseru wa ne Zankoku na ikimono demo
Ashi o jimen ni wasureta wa Nokosanai de ne

You want to spread your wings and fly
Dreaming of the swallowtail butterfly
You would seem to suit your shed skin… daydream
Hit by the pounding rain, you couldn't move anymore
You're just waiting to become food… my mouth opens

You're almost ready to take flight, so close to sprouting wings
Still my adorable pupa, you are now… an adult aren't you?

Sucking the honey, you who loved the flowers
Don't notice me as my beak comes at
You blooming all over with fogura and escargot

Dear pupa, show me tainted wings
I felt them flitting… from my stomach

Castdown, suddenly shaken, you're broken apart
Your wings tear off
Does a snakeskin suit you now?

Spinning you spin and spun
Through a life of the same old same old

Turning you turn and turned as you melt away
Shall we blend together into one?

Surely you're swimming the digestive juices like a mermaid
Surely a pupa will sprout wings like a swallowtail butterfly

If its you I'll allow it
Even if you are a cruel thing
You forgot my legs on the ground
Don't leave them like that Ok?
