English Translation
Smearing the limitless dark, glimmery rain falls Gently it tears off the drenched wings of a pyralid All is now dark inside the deep deep ague where I want to sink Gathering the endless rain, gloomy darkness falls To close the lids of the eyes that have forgotten even tears I just wish to burn for ever and ever At the bottom of a strange netherworld Ah! My love song Ah! may it reach his ears Ah! The distant wind carries a lovely voice Playfully seduced a woman I met on my journey A beauteous mistress, no stranger to romance When before long we mate, I easily coax her and share her bed As soon as it is over she turns defiant and starts for home Whither vanished my dear man? A flower is what I lost Your scent that never changes I weep my untrue karma Don't leave me like this, that sun sinks I curtly oppose the amorous smiles of the tenacious viper-heart It is useless try to laugh the silly pledge off as a joke Ah! At least let me hear you say the words "I miss you" Even if they are affected or untrue, please let me be by your side Alas! Our rendezvous repeatedly make my loving heart burn more ardently Alas! Our rendezvous repeatedly make my frosty heart freeze more freshly My longing is just as evanescent as the veil of summer mist Ceaselessly stream and fall the tears of regret, faithful to you As I turn pity even on the flowers that bloom on the field I just crawl a road meant for beasts not men, and then "I shall not love" you say What a downright heartless thing to say Merciless rain that makes your flesh fester, inside the serpent prison You will not leave here alive, not even bones will be left behind, repent your sins and die Do not call for me after such a long time, I will be at ease in a while The rain of atonement for having killed a loved one falls I cast myself into the seething rapids gathered from the endless rain
