Inheritance of Sin~ORIGINAL SIN~
With quiet eyes
you gave a smile as you looked up to the sky1
Frozen fingertips
played a distorted melody of snow
that stained you red

“Ending it like this
is your sole broken kindness…” you laugh mockingly

Held up by a breath
you make the knife in your back look like wings
and hold me

This inextinguishable pain is our fate2
Inheritance of sin

Huddling in the moonlight
I scream in agony at the repeating sin
I realize it from the tears that well up in your open eyes
“Someone stop me…”3

“Wishes that will never come true are meaningless…”
you say as I collapse and you softly brush my cheek with your fingers
No matter how many words I say
they will no longer reach your vanishing heart4

A melody of crimson tears
The isolation of a moonlit night

“If you don’t want to be robbed, then don’t look away”
You smile at me as I cry

“Just bear the unforgivable sin and this punishment, and fly…
Higher and higher…”

-Is ending it with my own hands
all I can do, in the end?-

Gently looking up at the night sky
the tears you shed are now cold

I gaze at you as you sleep
Inheritance of sin
