Official Soundtrack & God Shattering Star and Spirit Dais's lyrics(?)

Recommended Posts

I got the official soundtrack for 3H in the mail today, and as I leafed through the booklet that came with it (in the hopes of finding a section for lyrics) I found this:

v7GEvxp.jpg

The left title reads:「魂の高座 -原詞-」 while the right title reads: 「神を屠る星 -原詞- 」(unless I've borked reading a Kanji (which I'll fully admit I might have)).

「魂の高座」is Spirit Dais and「神を屠る星」 is God-Shattering Star, but 「-原詞- 」I'm not sure, Denshi Jisho gives me something in the vein of "Primitive Speech(or Dialect)/Original lyrics" though.

I'll have to give God-Shattering Star a re-listen and see if I can match up the text, but from my memory the lyrics do not sound like Japanese so it's a bit puzzling...

Maybe it's a made-up language  and the text itself is a translation of it?
(My mum who's studied a fair bit of Russian and Opera swears she hears several words she recognises fwiw)

Granted, I haven't leafed through the mini-interviews info blurbs that are also in the booklet, so maybe there's something re: God Shattering Star (or Spirit Dais) in them as well.

Edit: Scanned the page. Should be more legible

Fascinating. I tried translating the lyrics with DeepL and this is what I got:

 

GOD SHATTERING STAR - original lyrics

 

Arise, you who cannot bear death

Raise your heads bravely and take up your weapons.

No more wishing for the corpses of your comrades.

No!

Warriors, gather to this banner.

Run! Raise the flag!

From the beast called God.

To take back our pride from the beast called God.

Warriors, shout to the earth!

Follow me through the wilderness!

To the struggle called rebellion

in the name of rebellion

As your soul commands

Like the wind that blows through Mother Earth

Like the sunrise that colors the great Ogma

Stamp it out, raise your voice, strong as a lord's son.

Our cry will ride the wind for a thousand miles.

Let it reach the starry shores of the sea.

Reach high and praise me, for I am the one who will liberate you all!

 

Edit: Tried doing the same for Sprit Dais, and this what I got:

Spirit Dais - Original Lyrics

In whose land she is

The goddess descends
she dances in the morning of the beginning
All things are disordered

The night of everlasting life

Here and there the goddess returns.
Goddess, dance with me.
Let the morning break upon the land of dogs.

Double-post, but thanks to some feedback from people in reddit I have a more accurate translation for both songs. Notably, I missed out some paragraphs of God Shattering Star yesterday:

GOD SHATTERING STAR - original lyrics

Arise, you who cannot bear death
Raise your heads bravely and take up your weapons.

No more wishing for the corpses of your comrades.
It’s time to rebel and liberate.

Warriors, gather to this banner.
Run! Raise the flag!

From the beast called God.
To take back our pride from the beast called God.

Warriors, shout to the earth!
Follow me through the wilderness!

In the name of rebellion.
Let your bodies tremble
Let your souls do as they wish

Like the wind that blows through Mother Earth(Fódlan)
Like the sunrise that colors the great Ogma

Stamp it out, raise your voice, strong as a lion.
Our cries will ride the wind for a thousand miles.
Let it reach the starry shores of the sea.

Reach high and praise me, for I am the one who will liberate you all.
 
Pierce the sky, mysterious artifacts
I am the embodiment of wrath
I am the god shattering star

 

SPIRIT DAIS - original lyrics

In whose land she is
The goddess descends.
she dances in the morning of the beginning.
All things are disordered.
The night of everlasting life.
Here and there the goddess returns.
Goddess, dance with me.
Let the morning break upon this earth’s lands

It bothers me that this hasn't received more attention.

I very much appreciate this, thank you!

Thanks! Though most of the credit should go to Tactician_Iris as her scanned image made this possible to begin with.

On a related note, someone on reddit did a far better translation of both songs's lyrics which you all might want to check out.
