The Alice Project

Posted by Saki on December 27, 2009

Well, I really do love the Are You Alice? series and was able to get more of the tracks (thanks to astrialite who posted the tracks here), so I’ll be able to translate more of the series than I first thought (which is pretty awesome~) I don’t know how far I’ll get, but we’ll see.

I didn’t list every single track, just the CDs, but if you want the whole track list, I wrote it down here. Otherwise, I’ll just add the track list when I’m ready to start translating.

Posted by Saki on December 24, 2009

Character Key
CC: Cheshire Cat
WR: White Rabbit
A: Alice
MH: Mad Hatter
D: Dormouse

==========

CC: Are you treating yourself to roast cat for dinner?
Well, I don’t particularly recommend baking me.

WR: It’s because I thought you were a guest.
Hmm? It’s the neighbour’s kitty…

CC: That’s quite unexpected. I’m a wonderful guest too. I won’t pour tea without permission and I made my own duplicate key.
Ah, but I don’t really recommend your usual welcome of thrusting a sword against someone’s back.
Anyway, could you stop that?

Kousuke Toriumi – In Your Eyes

Posted by Saki on December 13, 2009

Vocals: Kousuke Toriumi
Lyrics: Reo Rinozuka
Composition & Arrangement: Toshiyuki Omori

(Shin Shirayukihime Densetsu Pretear – Hayate character song)

mitsumeteru omae no hitomi ga
mayotteru dokka de nanka wo sagashite
na no ni ore wa hidoi kotoba wo haku
nagusame wa hikyou na ki ga shite

I’m looking at your eyes, they’re hesitating
Looking for something, somewhere
But I speak cruel words
I feel like consolation isn’t fair

utsutteru ore no kono sugata
kuyanderu yappari iun jya nakatta
moshi kashitara omae ga totsuzen ni
kono ba kara kieteku ki ga shite

My reflected appearance regrets this
I knew shouldn’t have said that
I feel that you might suddenly disappear from here

naa okashii darou demo

It’s strange…but

In your eyes miru shika nai no sa
ore no ashita no sono subete
In your eyes itai kurai
sono naka ni In your eyes naite kurenai ka
In your eyes zenbu no namida de
aa itsuka sono hoo wo fukeru…arashi ni naru

In your eyes You have no choice but to see
all of my tomorrow
In your eyes So deep that it hurts
In your eyes Won’t you cry?
In your eyes All the tears
Someday I’ll dry those tears…become a storm

yondeiru omae no kokoro ga
wakatteru sonna no zenzen gokai sa
shiite ieba ore tte yuu yatsu wo
unmei ga tameshiteiru dake

Your heart calls me, it understands
that was a complete misunderstanding
If anything, fate is testing me

naa okashii darou demo

It’s strange…but

In your eyes au shika nai no sa
kako no kanashimi ni konya mo
In your eyes omoi dashite
shimau kara In your eyes naite mo ii kai
In your eyes sou iu toki ni wa
aa itsuka tobi tateru hi made…kaze ni muke

In your eyes We have no choice but to encounter
the sadness of the past again tonight
In your eyes I remember
In your eyes Can I cry?
In your eyes At times like this
Until the day I can fly away…I’ll face the wind

Gakupo, Kaito & Len – Imitation Black

Posted by Saki on December 11, 2009

Lyrics & Composition: natsuP
Arrangement: haku
Vocals: Gakupo, Kaito, Kagamine Len

yuganda nichijou yurusarenai ai
itsuwari no kokoro
kuroku nuri tsubusareta fukanzen na ai
shikkoku no sekai

The warped days, a forbidden love
A fake heart
An incomplete love, painted black
Jet black world

zutto kimi ni iitakatta
tatta hitotsu no kotoba na no ni
osaekirenai shoudou ga
kowarete shimau no nara

The only word I wanted to say to you
If an uncontrollable urge will break…

aishi aisare kurui sou na hodo ni
amaku atsui kuchizuke wa IMITATION
mahi suru kankaku tooku naru ishiki
afureru omoi to shinjitsu
kuro de nuri tsubushite

Loving and being loved, to the point of insanity
The sweet, hot kiss is imitation
Paralysis, my distant consciousness
The overflowing feelings and truth
are painted black

shizunde iku tsuki ga kumo to kasanatte
marude kage wo kakusu you ni
mou modorenai no?
kono mama futari de kiete shimaou

The sinking moon is covered by the clouds
As if concealing the shadows
Won’t I be able to return?
Let’s disappear together like this

itsuka kimi to musubareru to
shinjite te wo hanashita no ni
jibun rashisa no nai ai nara
kowashite shimaeba ii

I let go of your hand,
believing that we would be together someday
If this love doesn’t suit me,
I should break it

kitsuku tsuyoku dakishimete hoshikute
kasanaru karada no ondo wa IMITATION
taiyou wo terashi boku wo komaraseru kara
kimi ga mienaku naru
Please teach me the answer?

Hold me tight, I want you
The overlapping temperatures of our bodies are imitation
The shining sun troubles me
I can’t see you
Please teach me the answer?

joushiki mo moraru mo buchi kowashi
batsu wo ukeru nara boku dake de ii
saigo ni kimi ga itta
kotoba wo daite

Destroying common sense and morals
I’m the only one who should be punished
I embrace the last words you said to me

itsu no hi mo kimi wo omou yo
dakishimeta kata no kanshoku
tokete kiete naku naru mae ni
kimi ni ai ni yuku yo

I think of you some days
The sensation of embracing your shoulders
I’ll go to see you
before I melt away

yurari yurameku gensou ni idakare
kimi ni itta kotoba wa IMITATION
tsumetai hada ni kienai kizu ato
kioku no subete nanimo kamo kuro ni shizumete
ochite yuku

Embraced by the swaying illusions
The words I said to you are imitation
A never fading scar on cold skin
All my memories sink into black

aishi aisare kurui sou hodo ni
amaku atsui kuchizuke wa IMITATION
mahi suru kankaku tooku naru ishiki
afureru omoi to shinjitsu
kuro de nuri tsubushite

Loving and being loved, to the point of insanity
The sweet, hot kiss is imitation
Paralysis, my distant consciousness
The overflowing feelings and truth
are painted black

[Script] Are You Alice Drink Me – Disc 1, Track 2

Posted by Saki on December 9, 2009

Cheshire Cat: Welcome to Wonderland, Alice.

Alice: You’ve got the wrong person. Sorry, but that’s not my name.

Cheshire Cat: You’re so quick to deny it! There are many people who hate their names, but you’re the first person to deny their name.

Alice: You’re the one who’s being sudden! Who are you? How do you know my name? And why are you following me?

Cheshire Cat: Why? That’s difficult. Do I really have to give a reason?

Alice: I didn’t say that. I just… Never mind, I suppose my name could be Alice. That’s fine, isn’t it?

[Script] Are You Alice Drink Me – Disc 1, Track 1

Posted by Saki on December 9, 2009

Alice: What’s my name? I don’t remember. I’m sure that I abandoned it somewhere, so i won’t really look for it. When I fell headfirst into the hole, it wasn’t because somebody pushed me. To fulfill my own desires, I tripped myself up.

[SCENE CHANGE]

Alice: Seven kilolitres ’til Wonderland… What a tacky sign.
Hey… will I find what I’m looking for here?
For the time being, I’ll go to the bank.

Daisuke Hirakawa – Contrast

Posted by Saki on December 6, 2009

Kichiku Megane – Katsuya Saeki character song

Lyrics – kanoko
Composition – Mark Ishikawa
Vocals – Tatsuya Hirai (a pseudonym used by Daisuke Hirakawa)

madou kimochi wo hitori kono heya
“kowashitai…chigiritai…” kurikaesu no sa

Confused, alone in this room
Repeating “I want to break you…I want to make love…”

awai omoi wa hakanai yume sa
“akogare to…kiete yuku…” koyoi no kage he

My fleeting feelings are an empty dream
“They disappear…with longing…”
Into the shadows of the night

nagai ame ga kizu wo iyasu
hitosuji no hikari ga sora wo saita

The ceaseless rain heals my wounds
A single beam of light cut through the sky

shiro to kuro to, tsuki to hoshi ni sadame ga hajimaru
dochira kara mo yorisowanai hageshii
contrast

Black and white, fate begins among the moon and stars
Their tempestuousness means neither of them can get close
Contrast

miwaku ni hisomu tsuyoi shoudou
“hajime kara…shitteita…” utsurou kokoro

A strong urge lies dormant within the enchantment
“I knew…from the start…” My fading heart

aoi kumo ga kaze wo hakobu
torawareta futatsu no kokoro tsutsunde

The blue clouds carry the wind
Concealing our captivated hearts

kiri to yoi to, sei to ao ni sadame wo kanjiru
heikousen majiwaranai kuruoshii
contrast

Mist and twilight, I feel fate within the green and blue
The parallel lines never intersect, it drives me mad
Contrast

[SPOKEN PART]

omae wa ore
You’re me
ore wa omae
I’m you
itsuka majiriau hontou no jibun
My true self that I’ll assimilate with someday
keshite ai irenai chigau sonzai
A different existence that will never be in conflict
motome
Desire
ubau
Steal
doko mademo hateshinaku
Never ending

[END SPOKEN PART]

shiro to kuro to, tsuki to hoshi ni sadame ga hajimaru
dochira kara mo yorisowanai hageshii yuuwaku
kyouki ni michi, mashou wo ete, wana ni ochite iku dake sa
obiyakasare, shihai sarete, oboreru
Contrast

Black and white, fate begins among the moon and stars
A furious temptation means neither of them can get close
Filled with madness, devilishness in my hand, I can only fall into the trap
Threatened and controlled, I drown
Contrast

Kaito – Oyasumi no Uta

Posted by Saki on December 6, 2009

Oyasumi no Uta
Lyrics and Composition: Ice Imo

kyou ga shizuka ni owari wo tsuge
oto mo naku ashita ga hajimaru
tsukareta karada wo yasuragete
yukkuri oyasumi

Today ends quietly
Tomorrow starts without a sound
Rest your tired body
Take it easy

anata to deatta
hajimari no hi kara
watashi ni miseru yokogao wa
itsumo ashita wo mitsumeteiru
hitamuki na manazashi

From the first day
that I met you
The face you showed me
was always looking towards tomorrow
An earnest look

isoganaide
dareka ni katsu hitsuyou nado nai
anata no koto wo
aisuru hito wa kitto iru

Don’t hurry
There’s no need for you to beat anyone
I’m sure that
there’s someone who loves you

kasuka ni iki wo tatteiru
anata no odayaka na negao wo
ashita mo miraremasu you ni
yukkuri oyasumi

You breathe gently
So that I can see your
calm sleeping face tomorrow
Take it easy

anata to utatte kurasu hibi
umaku ikanai ame no hi ni
anata wa jibun no sei da yo to
watashi ni waratta

The days I spent singing with you
The rainy days when nothing went right
You smiled at me
saying it was your fault

omoi tsumenaide
watashi wa totemo shiawase dakara
kanawanakutemo
yume wa utsukushii no dakara

Don’t think too hard
I’m very happy
Even if they don’t come true
dreams are beautiful

kumori hitotsu naku kagayaita
anata no massugu na egao wo
ashita mo miraremasu you ni
yukkuri oyasumi

Shining, without a single cloud
So that I can see
your honest smile tomorrow
Take it easy

ashita he…oyasumi

To tomorrow….good night

(oyasumi…master)

(good night…master)
