I'm waving the white flag with translating this song - I'm definitely going to have to study Japanese hardcore. :banghead: I've tried to transliterate as best I can, but there may be some errors.

その卑しき唇で 浅ましく願いを
Sono iyashiki kuchibiru de asuma shiku negai o
唱えるが良い 舌先が裂かれる前に
Tonaeru ga yoi shitasaki ga sakareru mae ni

その穢れた瞳孔で 思うさま悪意を
Sono kegareta doutou de omou sama wakui o
貪るが良い 眼(まなこ)が潰される前に
Musumoru ga yoi manako ga tsubusareru mae ni

*哀れな子羊達よ 跪け
Aware na kohitsujitachi yo hizamasuke
我は光を憎み 闇を抱くものなり
Warewa hikari wo niku mi yami o idaku mono nari

溢るる悪意を似(も)ちて 汝の望みを
Aferuru akui wo mochi te nanji no nozomi o
叶えて見せよう その魂を代償に
Kanaete miseyoou sono tamashi wo daisho wo ni

遍(あまね)く絶望の淵で 汝の祈りを
Amareku zetsubo no fuchi de nanji no inori wo
聞き届けよう 希望は既に失われた
Kiki todokeyoou kibou wa tsube ni ushina wareta

**哀れな子羊達よ 畏憚(いたん)せよ
Aware na kohitsujitachi yo itanseiyo
我は光を憎み 闇を抱くものなり
Warewa hikari wo niku mi yami o idaku mono nari


My translation is coming out as too literal and awkward. I don't understand sentence structure enough, and there also seems to be some old school Japanese that I'm not grasping, either.

Could I leave this to the experts to translate, please? *puppy eyes*

Tell you what, I'll do it if you can give me the link to where you got the lyrics and find me some more information on it, cause I've never heard of it before O_O

Go ahead Hikari, you claimed it first! =)

*sigh* Guess I'll look for the info myself. Is this from an anime or something? I've never heard of it! The song seems interesting though.

Apparently it's a character song from the computer game Princess Nightmare.
The name of the song itself is 光を憎み、闇を抱くもの.

Ah, yes, I see. Oh! Some of the main themes are sung by Rekka Katakiri! I think I'll do all the ones I can find from the series now!XD *Likes Rekka :3*

Sounds like you've found yourself another project. Yay!

I'm still on the look, lol. Just finished the Kuroshitsuji Ii character songs myself and now I suddenly feel free because there hasn't been any good Vocaloid songs lately... -.-

This conversation is going off topic and needs to be moved to a PM~

Anyway, main point is, Maha Vailo, I'll post the translation up this week. I'll PM the link to you or something.
