夜鷹の夢, (traslitterato "Yotaka no yume", in inglese "The dream of the night hawk") fa parte dell'ultimo album dei Do As Infinity prima del loro scioglimento (settembre 2005)
僕等  低空で飛び続けた
低く  エンジンが響いてた

暮らし  笑い合っているのでしょう
生まれ  育まれていたのでしょう

地図に示された  名も読めない町
今夜も  正義を御旗に

何も  見ない  何も  聞かず
何も  何も  何も  何も

花火  ささやかに打ち上げてる
怒り  嘆き  悔やみ
そして  憎しみを受け止める

朝日より早く  まぶしい光が
突然  ガラスを砕いて

同じ色  真紅の血が
月が 遠く  霞み  消える
母も  父も  友も  君も


同じ色  真紅の血で
命を  育てる
夢を 見てた  長い  夢を
長い  夢を  長い  夢を

Traduzione in inglese (con note del traduttore) da questa pagina.

Under cover of darkness
we skirt above the ground
The moon knows nothing of our existence
as our engine echoes out quietly across the skies

What kind of people, do you think
Live there, laughing and loving each other?
What kind of dreams, do you think
Are born there, flower and bloom? 1

Tonight, once again,
upon a town whose name we can't even pronounce,
a town that just happened to be on the map,
we let fly our banner of justice

Upon all living things
a stream of crimson fire is rained down
Our bomber pulls up, our hatches close,
everything exactly as planned. 2
We trace a loop of victory across the skies
With nothing seen of us
and nothing heard of us
Nothing Nothing Nothing
Nothing at all

And then, as if in celebration of our joy
fireworks are launched. 3
We are struck,
By their rage,
by their lamenting,
by their condolences,
by their hate.

A dazzling light,
dawning earlier than the morning sun
suddenly smashes through the glass

From all living things,
The same scarlet blood flows,
the same path traced down our chest
My strength leaves me even as I grip the joystick
ever firmer,
and no matter how I turn back and call to you,
There is no answer.
The moon dissolves into a distant sea of fog, 4
as does my mother,
as does my father,
as do my friends,
as do you.

If we were but born in a different country,
our lives would never have been coloured
by this dusty desert dawn 5
The night hawk has lost his way in the rays of the morning sun,
Never again to return from whence he came,
becoming naught but a fiery meteor across the skies 6

From all living things
The same scarlet blood flows,
bearing life in every precious drop
No matter what flag of justice we clothe ourselves in, 7
The blood that pours forth can't be persuaded to stop
I had... A dream... A long dream...
A long dream... A long dream...
Notes to the translation:

(1) Literally, this is closer to"nurtured and brought up" as opposed to "flower and bloom"

(2) I spent the longest time thinking what the chambers in which bombs are kept in bombers are called - I think hatch fits, but I could very well be wrong. ;p Also, the literal lyrics go something like "I pull the nose of the aircraft upwards", which is valid military speak, sure, but sounds so very awkward in a song.

(3) This part is slightly confusing - I'm not sure if the fireworks refer to the explosions that occur after the bomber unleashed it's payload, or retaliatory strikes from the town. The next stanza seems to support the latter, but that contradicts with the earlier stanza of the bomber not having been seen or heard.

(4) This is a bit of poetic license on my part - more literally, it's more "The moon disappears into the fog of the distance"

(5) Ooh, alliteration! No mention of dusty, but the rest is pretty much right, I think

(6) No mention of "fiery", but the rest fits.

(7) More literally its "No matter the form of justice we hold above our heads", but I thought my translation went pretty well...
