    Default Thorn - any suggestions?

    This song is a lot more open-ended than the other songs I've translated. I asked some Japanese people, and apparently they had no idea what the grammar is supposed to be; you just have to fill in the blanks. It makes me nervous, but I don't wanna just do love songs forever. Every single line could be translated differently, so this time I'm asking for comments/suggestions on the entire song. I think I connected all the verbs to their correct nouns, but I'm not 100% sure. Thankfully the song's not too long. I'm not sure how I can elegantly yet accurately translate 育てた刺. The last stanza is English, so I just left it that way.

    宇宙(そら)を 夢見ていた あの頃
    いま 心 壊れた破片(かけら)の中 零れ
    Back in those days, I would just dream and dream of the sky
    And now, I feel it spilling over into the broken fragments
    Of my mind

    いつからだろう 心は凍えていた 震えていた
    どこからだろう 瞳には何も映らない 哀しみさえ
    彷徨った あの空に
    When did this start happening? My heart would ice up and shiver and shiver
    Where did this begin? Even the sadness that my eyes don't reflect at all
    Got lost wandering around in that sky

    鳥は 何処の空を 飛んでる?
    あの 風は 囁かないのだろう 二度と
    Where are the birds soaring through the sky?
    Maybe that breeze will never whisper again
    Not here, anyway

    目覚めてみれば 心ない言葉たち 傷ついてく
    If I try to wake up, I end up getting hurt by callous remarks

    眠っていれば 焦がれる炎 焼き尽くして 優しさにも
    気付かない フリをして
    If I stay asleep, the flames of desire dwindle down to nothing—as well as my kindness
    All while I pretend not to notice

    独りぼっちで 蒼い夜の中にも 目覚めている
    心の中で 育てた棘(とげ)が痛みの中 失われた
    想い出の 血を流す
    Utterly alone, even in the middle of the pale night, I lie awake
    The thorn I cultivated, amidst all the pain in my mind, has been lost
    And it makes my memories bleed

    The pain will disappear, if only I could pull this thorn out-
    But the thorn that's growing in my mind
    makes me deny my feelings, makes me refuse love-
    and it bleeds inside of my memories.
    Leaves me with a scar in my heart.
