Mori Calliope
Red
[森カリオペ「Red」歌詞]

[Verse 1]
Tonight the moon has rose in a crimson red
But roses gotta wither, so I'll live forever instead
And now I can't get rid of all of these thorns in my head
Bring on the hemorrhaging
I guess I'll live inside your memory

[Verse 2]
Another distorted story that ignored the deceased
I'll live inside of a castle, pray I'm never released
I'd rather kick it in the dungeon, cuz I'm that kind of beast
I'll bet my heart on the cards because I trust me the least
(Let it die)

[Bridge]
Pressure mounting, but I'm doomed without it
Precious moments zooming by, don't doubt it
Rest is ephemeral, scream and shout it
The best don't sleep, I was all about it
(Let it die)
But reaping keeps you tucked in the shadows
This creeping feeling of ident**y battles
Closing in on every side of me
[Pre-Chorus]
Red tomorrow, red today
Dread, sorrow, can't turn away
(Can't turn back...)

[Chorus]
Time, I'll always be a prisoner to my ambition
As petals fly, I'll dance your tune
But hold your breath, guess who's running the show?
And when this red runs black I'll ask you, was I everything you imagined?
When my time's finally up, the sun's falling down
I'll turn to stone again

[Verse 3]
Every day's a fight to stay relevant
And it cannot last, so I'll relish it
And our planet's vast, but this hole's a ditch
Ya toss out the past, and you can strike it rich
Nobody asked, but the mask is an alright fit
And this fiction's no disaster in spite of it
I stay curious, what comes after it?
So mysterious, and yet I exist

[Bridge]
Hold on
Stay beautiful, stay young
There are blades to be swung yet
Rising soon
Regard the moon
Reflected in the crimson sung tonight
[Pre-Chorus]
Red tomorrow, red today
Dread, sorrow, can't turn away
(Can't turn back...)

[Chorus]
Time, I'll always be a prisoner to my ambition
As petals fly, I'll dance your tune
But hold your breath, guess who's owning the throne?
So come alive now
Once again, so I can chase you down
We are five minutes away from...
The end that's come
Continue slashing forward I must
Or else just fade away

[Verse 4]
There's a drive to strive inside all of us
A never-ending ouroboros
Sinking way deep down and it's all because
I kept thinking that reaping is all there was
And is now
I gotta find a way out, escape, how?
Fate has a funny way of shaking the weak down
Am I gonna peak now?
Future lookin' bleak, wow
Somehow incomplete after all
(Can't turn back...)
[Chorus]
Time, I'll always be a prisoner to my ambition
As petals fly, I'll dance your tune
Don't hold your breath for me!
And when this red runs black I'll ask you, was I everything you imagined?
When my time's finally up, the sun's falling down
I'll turn to stone again
So come alive now
Once again, so I can chase you down
We are five seconds away from...
The end that's come
From here on out, it's only just me and this bloodlust
I'd rather just...
Fade away
