Shooting The Moon: A Symphogear Fansite

Senkin Dur Da Bla

Carol GX Single

I’ve made a singable translation of Carol’s character song from Symphogear GX! I did my best to stay as close to the rhythm and sonority of the original song as I could while still approximating key imagery and emotional beats of the lyrics. I’ve only got about 3-4 semesters’ worth of Japanese knowledge, though, so there’s a few lines I’m pretty sure I’ve butchered - feel free to give me some feedback if you think I missed the mark somewhere. I’ve also thrown in a few visual hints to help out in the spots where the melody can be a bit confusing, to make it easier to sing.

Let me know if you like it, or if you have any suggestions for better translation/phrasing!


Ah the sweet final-e, a ca-non for the end of days
Let the gospel ring, let the slaughter sting, as I vomit up all my rage
I’ll dissect it all, and resistance I’ll eviscerate
To atomic dust, for eternity subdued

Lu-lu-li-la, heavens will fall, on bended knee
Lu-lu-li-la, black out the sun, and stain it with
Genocide, and Genocide
Wipe them all out, down to the last, drop of blood
With all my hate, with all my strength, I’ll see it done
Tremble in fear, as the world is, dissolved, in my final Lo-ve song

I’m a murderer of miracles, I swear I’ll kill ‘em all
And I’ll burn up all my memories if that is what it takes
In a blinding rage I’d even let your precious smile go
For the song that burns the world I give up all that I’ve ever known

Love? Who needs it? I deny it
Love? Who needs it? I defy it
Love shall meet an en-ding ab-solute

Ah the tender touch, as so gently you reached out to me
In your hand’s embrace, so warm and so safe, I knew I would be all right
But your name is slowly fading from my memory
And my heart forgot that feeling long ago

Lu-lu-li-la, hellfire burns, in requiem
Lu-lu-li-la, blazing infer-no swirling with
Genocide and Genocide
Every pulse, every beat, of every heart
Every life, ever has lived, I’ll tear apart
E-ve-ry step, ev-ery stair on, the way, that lead, to their salvation

For the cold embrace of nothing is the only paradise
Oh what else could I believe? What more is left for me to find?
I will scour all creation with my song in search of you
Break it down in-to its essence, so my music, can see, me through

Nevermore will love decieve me
Nevermore will love bereave me
Pain’s the only love, I’ve ever known

Lu-lu-li-la, fade into dust, disintegrate
Lu-lu-li-la, wither and die, give into my
Genocide, and genocide
Wipe them away, every tear, of agony
Cry out in pain, this is the end, catastrophe
Down to the foundations, burn it to ash, erase it from memory

I’m a murderer of miracles, I swear I’ll kill ‘em all
And I’ll burn up all my memories if that is what it takes
In a blinding rage I even let your precious smile go
For the song that burns the world I gave up all that I’ve ever known

Once upon a time you loved me
Once upon a time I loved You
Died and now my love has died with you
