English Lyrics:
---------------------
Like an angel who has forsaken sympathy,
Rise up, young boy, and make yourself a legend!

Blue skies and beckoning winds...
Are trying to open the door of your heart.
But you're gazing at me as if you cannot see;
You just stand there, smiling vacantly.

Your eyes hold such innocence;
You're blind to the fate that will soon come to pass.
But it's summoning you with a touch like a sigh;
You seek it without knowing why.

But, someday, I know that you will be awakened...
And your eyes will finally see.
These wings on your back are just waiting to guide you;
The future will soon set you free!

This cruel thesis, a spiteful angel's litany,
Will soon soar from the window of your destiny.
White-hot pathos, a desecrated symphony;
Stay true to this and don't betray your memory!

Come now, reach out - you must embrace reality!
Rise up, young boy, and make yourself a legend!

You've slept for ever-so-long...
Embraced in affection and cradled with care.
But with morning's approach comes an echoing cry;
It tells you to wave your dreams goodbye.

And the moon is shining above;
It wishes to show just how fragile you are.
You're so frail and slight in its silvery light;
Our fate is not one we can fight.

But, someday, I hope that we'll be reunited...
If that is what's destined to be.
Perhaps we'll discover that elusive Bible,
And then we will finally be free!

This cruel thesis, a spiteful angel's mockery,
Will bring with it the sorrow of futility.
Hold on tightly and do not lose vitality;
You must wake up, for now the dream is history!

Come now, reach out - you must embrace humanity!
Rise up, young boy, and make yourself a legend!

Love is the thread of the story that's woven...
Of future and present and past.
I may not ever ascend to the heavens,
But I know my love will still last!

This cruel thesis, a spiteful angel's litany,
Will soon soar from the window of your destiny.
White-hot pathos, a desecrated symphony;
Stay true to this and don't betray your memory!

Come now, reach out - you must embrace reality!
Rise up, young boy, and make yourself a legend!
