English Translation
Oni and women should stay hidden from the eye, so it is said in the ancient texts Though they are kami, though called oni, they are distant relatives of malevolent gods (1) One eye blinded, made into a scarecrow, captured in an iwaiden Cursed and scared, offered sacrifice, revered as gods to save your lives Open the northeast gate and witness all the gathering groups of yaksha Selfishly hiding their own depravity are infant slaughtering mabiki-oni An iwaiden stands amidst the stillness of a gloomy mountain where the stench of decay hangs in the air Now a demon in appearance only, is this my hermitage for eternity? The awe of humans goes round in circles Renting blind Buddhist deities (2) Now living, now dying, turning into oni Even now they lurk in the darkness of your mind Worship even hell's tormenting devils as ancestral spirits Contrarian spirits of the dead that have gained form The awe of humans goes round in circles Renting blind Buddhist deities (2) Now living, now dying, turning into oni Even now they lurk in the darkness of your mind
