Darker Than Black 1st Opening Theme

Darker than Black

Darker than Black

This is the first opening theme song of the anime currently airing in Animax, Darker than Black. I love this song because it’s perfectly all about the anime itself. The anime is currently aired on Animax every Tuesday, at 8:00pm, and if you missed the primetime telecast there is always replay on Wednesday at 12 noon.

Original/Romaji Lyrics

(a night sky full of cries

hearts filled with lies

the contract–is it worth the price?

a soul pledged to the darkness

now I’ve lost it, I know I can kill

the truth is just beyond the Gate)

Fusagareta mabuta kara

nagaredashita namida

Kurikaeshi mushibamareru risei to chi no kakera

I don’t want anything anymore

(Abakidasu kanjou ga around Turn round)

I don’t feel the way as before

(Gang Bang Son of a gun)

Karameta futatsu no mune no sukima de

Hoshigaru dake no kawaita kono karada ga

Kegareta yubisaki de yoru wo sosogikonde

Chigireru made kimi wo kojiakete

Asai nemuri no naka hagareta omoi ga kishimu

Nanimo ka mo ima ha subete keshisaretara

Sun will rise Close your eyes

Downfallen (Fallen) Falling

Hold inside

Just howling in the shadows

Taema naku furishikiru ame ni utarenagara

Shigamitsuku sono senaka ni fukaku tsume wo tateta

I don’t need anything anymore

(No one else can take my place)

I don’t see the way as before

(I’ve been lost without a trace)

Dareka no fureta yume no tsudzuki wo

Saegiru you ni toza

Saegiru you ni tozashite ita kokoro ga

Kegareta yubisaki de nando mo dakiatte

Atedo naku kimi wo teguriyosete

Awai kioku ga mada nokoshita itami ni nijimu

Te ni ireta mono ga subete ayamachi demo

Ushinau tabi ni mezamete yuku chikara de

Kegareta kono tsubasa ga yoru wo sosogikonde

Chigireru made kimi wo kojiakete

Asai nemuri no naka hagareta omoi ga kishimu

Nanimo ka mo ima ha subete keshisaretara

Sun will rise. Close your eyes

Downfallen (Fallen) Falling

Give me sight to see inside

I’m calling

Take a bite night by night

Downfallen (Fallen) Falling

Hold inside

Just howling in the shadows

Darker than Black

Darker than Black

English Translation

(a night sky full of cries

hearts filled with lies

the contract–is it worth the price?

a soul pledged to the darkness

now I’ve lost it, I know I can kill

the truth is just beyond the Gate)

Tears streamed from my squeezed-shut eyelids

My reason and the fragments of my blood are repeated

I don’t want anything anymore

(My exposed feelings go around and turn ’round)

I don’t feel the same way as before

(Gang bang, son of a gun)

In the crack between two entwined chests

This parched body that only desires will –

Imbue itself into the night with filthy fingertips

And wrench you open until you’re torn to shreds

And its peeling emotions will creak in a shallow sleep

If it can erase just about everything entirely right now

The sun will rise, so close your eyes

Downfallen (Fallen) Falling

Hold inside

Just howling in the shadows

While struck by the incessantly pouring rain

I dug my claws deep into your clinging back

I don’t need anything anymore

(No one else can take my place)

I don’t see the same way as before

(I’ve been lost without a trace)

As if to interrupt the continuation of

Someone’s touching dream, my locked-away heart will –

Embrace you many times over with filthy fingertips

And aimlessly reel you in close

And its fleeting memories will blur with the remaining pain

Even if everything it has obtained is a mistake

With power that awakens each time I lose something, I will

Imbue myself into the night with these filthy wings

And wrench you open until you’re torn to shreds

And my peeling emotions will creak in my shallow sleep

If i can erase just about everything entirely right now

The sun will rise, so close your eyes

Downfallen (Fallen) Falling

Give me sight to see inside

I’m calling

Take a bite, night by night

Downfallen (Fallen) Falling

Hold inside

Just howling in the shadows
