闇夜の中で嗤う紅く濡れた眼に
飢えた体が悶え苦しむ零刻

月の影に隠れた白黒の舞台で
隔たれた愛と踊る哀しみの円舞曲

un,deux,trois..
douleur...tristesse...

踊り狂う極紅の薔薇…

Vanitas...Vanitas...
その痛みは僕が抱え生き続けよう

Vanitas...Vanitas...
たとえ朽ち果てたとしても貴女だけを愛す

背中合わせに睨み背負う呪縛を憎む
愛と欲望の狭間 揺れ動く陽炎

頬に口吻しよう 白き柔肌に灯る
薄らいだ紅が罪を重ねる

un,deux,trois...
douleur...tristesse...
un,deux,trois...
Kyrie,traumen...

いつかは貴女を殺めてしまうかも知れない…

牙を立てる 震えながら
細く白い首筋へと

そこから咲く紅き薔薇が
僕の罪を数えている

優しく笑う貴女の顔が慟哭する声に溶けていく
混ざり合った紅を啜った僕は煉獄へ

堕ちていく……

Vanitas...Vanitas...
その痛みは僕が抱え生き続けよう

Vanitas...Vanitas...
たとえ朽ち果てたとしても貴女だけを…

そう貴女だけの為に生きよう

English translation

Translation[3]

In the dark night I smile; my eyes glow red
At midnight my body starves for blood and struggles in pain

On the monochrome stage hidden by the shadow of the moon
With the love with a yawning gap, I dance the sorrowful waltz with you

1,2,3…
I'm in pain…and sorrow…

The crimson rose dances madly…

Vanitas...Vanitas...
That pain keeps encircling me

Vanitas...Vanitas...
Even if I decay, I'll still love you only

I hate to be under the spell; I don't want to face it
The flame of the sun wavers in the gap between love and desire

Kisses your cheeks and brightens your white and soft skin
Your fading rosiness overlaps with my sin

1,2,3…
I'm in pain…and sorrow…
1,2,3…
In my dream I pray, “God have mercy”…

I fear that one day I may suck your life away…

Despite shivering, I still show my fangs
And bite your white slim neck

The crimson rose blooms like this
And counts the sins I have committed

Your soft smile melts my cry of regret
Mixing our blood together and sucking it

I'm falling to the purgatory……

Vanitas... Vanitas...
That pain keeps encircling me

Vanitas... Vanitas...
Even if I decay, I'll still…

Yes, I'll only live for you

  • Encyclopedia Britannica: "Vanitas, (Latin, "vanity") in art, a genre of still-life painting that flourished in the Netherlands in the early 17th century. A vanitas painting contains collections of objects symbolic of the inevitability of death and the transience and vanity of earthly achievements and pleasures; it exhorts the viewer to consider mortality and to repent."
