ナイトメア / レゾンデートル (Raison d’Etre)

レゾンデートル (Raison d’Etre) by Nightmare is the OP for Claymore, and frankly, I’m currently addicted to that series (both the manga and the anime). Nightmare, however, probably was known better for their single for Deathnote: the WORLD/アルミナ.

Raison d’Etre (the single) is as solid an offering as the WORLD/アルミナ, but I cannot help but feel that this song is not quite as good as before. There seems to be a bit more repetition in this song, and the guitar and singing not as good as before. Track 2 & 3, though sounds a bit better to me, probably because the songs are smoother, melody and rhythm wise. Overall, I have to say that it is quite an enjoyable single.

Rating: 4/5

歌詞 / Lyrics:

Ah 幾つもの夜を越えて
凍った夢と 消えゆく涙
Warm me, Warm me, Wrap me

一度全てを忘れたはずなのに
人を愛せない此の身が憎い

どこまで歩いても終わりが見えない
過去の記憶を道連れに
此の身は何色に染まりゆくのだろう
答えを探している

もう 戻れない 決別の日
深く根ざした 傷は消えない
Hide it, Hide it, Hide me

両手に持ちきれないほどの星屑
ひとつ、またひとつ宙に返して

弱くて惨めな自分はあの頃
何も知らずに生きていた
それでも いつでも 明日を夢見ては
指折り数えていた

生きる意味など 知らないままでいい
いつか笑える日が来るのならば

あの日、貴方の言葉ひとつで
強くなれる気がしたよ
「何も変わらないで 今のままでいい」と
今でも

心のどこかに 貴方がいるから
迷わずに歩いて行ける
終わりが見えなくてもいいと思えたよ
旅ゆくエトランジェ 答えは知らなくていい

P.S. If you want the lyrics to track 2 & 3, 叙情的に過ぎた時間と不確定な未来へのレクイエム and “Criminal Baby”, drop me a line.
