花の命 儚く Hana no inochi hakanaku The life of a flower is fleeting
今宵ひらひらと散るわ Koyoi hirahira to chiru wa The petals will scatter tonight, fluttering down

時代を彩っては 
Jidai wo irodotte wa Lending its charm to an era
健気に消えゆく運命 Kenage ni kieyuku sadame It is fated to vanish heroically

やり直しはきかない Yarinaoshi wa kikanai There is no doing this over
がんじがらめのプレイヤー Ganjigarame no pureiyaa The players are bound hand and foot
次の入一手はどうする Tsugi no itte wa dou suru What to do about my next move?
足掻くほど歪んでいく未来 Agaku hodo yugandeiku mirai The more I struggle, the more distorted the future becomes

最期の瞬間ほど Saigo no shunkan hodo The closer to the end the moment is
きっと生々しく輝く Kitto namanamashiku kagayaku The more vividly brilliant it will surely shine
イノチノカラクリでしょう Inochi no karakuri deshou It must be the mechanical workings of life

私 飾りじゃない これは遊びじゃない Watashi kazari ja nai kore wa asobi ja nai I am no ornament, this is no game
負けの先には破滅があるのみ 
Make no saki ni wa hametsu ga aru no mi Beyond defeat, only ruin awaits
涙はいつか枯れ果てた 犠牲の上に立つ Namida wa itsuka karehateta gisei no ue ni tatsu I have run out of tears at some point, I stand atop sacrifices
そして弄ぶ 狭いステージの上 Soshite moteasobu semai suteeji no ue And upon the crowded stage I treat as a game
操られながら上手く踊るの Ayatsurare nagara umaku odoru no I dance neatly while being manipulated
いつの日かこのジレンマを Itsu no hi ka kono jirenma wo Someday, from this dilemma
逃け出すと決めて切り札隠した Nukedasu to kimete kirifuda kakushita I resolve to slip away, and I hide my trump card

逃け出すと決めて切り札隠した Nukedasu to kimete kirifuda kakushita I resolve to slip away, and I hide my trump card

数え切れないほどの Kazoekirenai hodo no Countless times
哀しみ 肩に背負っても Kurushimi kata ni seotte mo I’ve shouldered this suffering


機会仕掛けの心 Kikaishikake no kokoro My clockwork heart


私は聞こえないふりする Watashi wa kikoenai furi suru I pretend that I can’t hear

例え 体が悲鳴あげて Tatoe karada ga himei agete For example, if my body were to let out a scream
動けなくなったって Ugoke naku nattatte And I were to become immobilized
やめるわけにいかないの Yameru wake ni ikanai no There’s still no way I’d ever quit

これはゲームじゃない 決して遊びじゃない Kore wa geemu ja nai kesshite asobi ja nai This isn’t a game, I’m definitely not playing around
未来はこの手で切り開くもの Mirai wa kono te de kirihiraku mono The future is something that I’ll carve out by my own hand
人生賭けた大勝負 挑む価値がある Jinsei kaketa oushoubu idomu kachi ga aru Risking my life in this huge game is worth the challenge
お行儀よくして 顔色うかがう Ogyougi yoku shite kaoiro ukagau Mind your manners, watch your complexion
ゲストなんかじゃ 満足できない Gesuto nanka ja manzoku dekinai Or the guests won’t be satisfied
予定調和はもう終わり 
Yoteichouwa wa mou owari This pre-established harmony is over
油断したところに 本気を見せるわ Yudan shita tokoro ni honki wo miseru wa I’ll seriously show you just how careless you were

ただ毎日を無駄にしても Tada mainichi wo muda ni shitemo Even if every day is just a waste


生きたいと願ってる Ikitai to negatteru I want to live, that’s what I wish for
イノチノカラクリでしょ Inochi no karakuri deshou It must be the mechanical workings of life

私 飾りじゃない これは遊びじゃない Watashi kazari ja nai kore wa asobi ja nai I am no ornament, this is no game
負けの先には破滅があるのみ 
Make no saki ni wa hametsu ga aru no mi Beyond defeat, only ruin awaits
涙はいつか枯れ果てた 犠牲の上に立つ Namida wa itsuka karehateta gisei no ue ni tatsu I have run out of tears at some point, I stand atop sacrifices
そして弄ぶ 狭いステージの上 Soshite moteasobu semai suteeji no ue And upon the crowded stage I treat as a game
操られながら上手く踊るの Ayatsurare nagara umaku odoru no I dance neatly while being manipulated
いつの日かこのジレンマを Itsu no hi ka kono jirenma wo Someday, from this dilemma
逃け出すと決めて切り札隠した Nukedasu to kimete kirifuda kakushita I resolve to slip away, and I hide my trump card
