Well, it's basically just me posting some Anime/J-Pop song translations/transliterations, on my free time.

Hikari to yami

English title: Light and Shadow
Japanese title: 光と影

Performed by: miimi
Lyrics/Composed by: Hanai Yuuko

Romaji:

Subete no zanzou wa
Sora no kizuguchi no you ni
Kuchi wo akete
Nobiteyuku kage to
Utsuro na munashisa de sore wa
Kumotteiru

Senketsu ni mamireta mama
Chiisana iki wo kazoeta
Niku to kawa wo haide
Sotto
Hawasete
Ita

Aimai wo hedateru
Hikari to kage no sukima ni oboreta uo ga itta
“Kaiteki no nichijou wa migi wo hidari e to kaete kuramashiteku”

Sekai wo oku de subeteiru mono ga mitai to omotta
Muryoku na katamari ga tada
Ochite
Ita

Subete no zanzou wa
Sora no hohoemi no moto ni
Kaetteyuku

English:

All of the afterimages
Open their mouths
Like wounds in the sky.
A cloud of shadows stretching forth
And empty vanity,
Covers them over.

Covered in fresh blood,
I counted faint breaths.
Tearing off skin and flesh,
I was forced
to
slowly
crawl.

A fish, having drowned in the crevice
Between the light and shadow that isolate the ambiguous, said:
“The cozy everyday life, turns right into left as it bewilders you.”

I wanted to see what controls the world from deep within:
A powerless lump
Merely,
Dropped down.

All of the afterimages
Are making their way back
To underneath the sky’s smile.

Kanji:

すべての残像は
空の傷口のように
口を開けて
のびてゆく影と
虚ろな空しさでそれは
曇っている

鮮血にまみれたまま
小さな息を数えた
肉と皮を剥いで
そっと這わせて
いた

曖昧を隔てる
光と影の隙間に溺れた魚が言った
『快適の日常は右を左へと変えて眩ましてく』

世界を奥で統べているものが見たいと思った
無力な塊がただ
落ちて
いた

すべての残像は
空の微笑みの許に
還ってゆく
