Track Name: Ibitsu
Infinite metamorphosis connecting worthlessness
"AKUMADEMO AKUMANONAI"
Won't be weathered away
Keep on being
Hate formulas
Worthless rites
Distorted intentions
EVIL intentions
Do not resist, eat up the will
Up above the awareness
Sand storming
I will keep on being
No need for forced logic
Want to achieve this wicked formation
Deform the sign of retaliation
With the light of the rite
Let it come out
Want to get ecstacy from this wicked formation
Deform the sign of retaliation
Track Name: Furi
I want to know
about your weary remembrance
I want to sneak
around your obsession

I already know
about your shaking remembrance
I've already got
to your obsessed innermost

stab, fabrication, breach
sob, falsification, betrayal
stab, fabrication, breach
sob, falsification, betrayal

it's mistaken
five hundreds patches for misunderstandings
onto your organized remembrance
entangled and tucked
"concreteness" turns the doorknob
just a little and break with familiarity
with ease

stab, fabrication, breach
sob, falsification, betrayal
stab, fabrication, breach
sob, falsification, betrayal
Track Name: Ano Onna no Onryou
those stone-like eyes know my ending
"cast shadow"
that femme whispers without a blink,
I only hear persisting echo
with her hair waving, la danse des morts
"I'm gonna be taken away"

losing the sky this eye want to see
losing the color this eye want to see
and for you

this hand knows my ending
"nails that touch the evil"
the gauzy figure of the femme
eludes with vague voice without touching
she spills out doom
I can see it from the shape of her lips
"I'm gonna be invaded"

losing the pain this hand want to feel
losing the shape this hand want to take
and for me

tried to escape, but in vain
dragged into malevolent singing, and burnt in ashes
then I see no ending
