Lost Delusion — Frog96 (A Translation)

Black-and-white picture of a schoolgirl in a bicycle parking lot, the pigments bleeding out and rotting the image.

throat caressed with rubber gloves
金網越しのミクログリア
through the wire mesh, microglia
アーキタイプに爪の痕
claw wounds on archetype,
ほら溶かして固めて
here, melt it and solifify it

パッと見る夢 枕に揺れて
suddenly, you dream, swaying on your pillow
三つ数えてパラレルワ
count to three and it’s a parallel world
渦巻く眼で魅惑魅惑
eyes spiraling it’s enchanting, alluring

じっと瞑る目 瞼で生む絵*
fixedly, eyes shut, eigengrau birthing vision
散った意識のアナトミア
consciousness scattered, an anatomia
並べて繋げて自爆自爆
line it up, connect it, and self destruct
疑惑疑惑
doubting, distrusting

無人列車で繰り返す
over and over on an unmanned train
外れたネジでくすぐる嘘
with dislodged screws, tickling lies
合わせ鏡で覗き込む
peering in between parallel mirrors
電気溶接 継ぎ接ぐシナプス
electrically welded and spliced synapses

論理回路に注ぎ込む
logic gates pumped full,
楕円軌道と吹雪くリビドー
elliptical orbits and blizzarding libido
サーチライトとかくれんぼ
searchlights and hide-and-go-seek
ほら結んで壊れて
here, bind it together and break it apart

パッと見る夢 枕に揺れて
suddenly, you dream, swaying on your pillow
三つ数えてパラレルワ
count to three and it’s a parallel world

じっと瞑る目 瞼で生む絵*
fixedly, eyes shut, eigengrau birthing vision

ずっと忌む癖伏し目に揺れて
always sullen in the face of abhorrent habits
時間を溶かしてアムネシア
dissolving time, amnesia
頭蓋の割れ目に偽薬偽薬
in crevices of the cranium, placebo

ふっと途切れて旅の道連れ
suddenly, the coercion of a journey interrupted
薔薇摘む手首にパラノイア
