Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Japanese[edit | edit source]

手に入らぬものなどあるはず無いと
一度たりと疑う事無かった
欲っすれば思い通りの運命(さだめ)が
崩れてゆく・・・鈍い轟音を立てながら

愛しきもの達よ
我が身の前に集え
覚めない眠り共に
分かち合おう!

(Where are we going? Mr.?)

あぁ、そなたの白い腕に包まれ
影と光溶けてゆく時
美しい唄、優しい音色響く
"終末の序曲"(オワリノハジマリ)

Romaji[edit | edit source]

Te ni hairanu mono nado aru hazunai to
Ichido tari to utagau kotonakatta
Hossureba omoi douri no sadame ga
Kuzureteyuku... nibui gouon wo tate nagara

Itoshiki monotachi yo
Wagami no mae ni tsudoe
Samenai nemuri tomo ni
Wakachi aou!

(Where are we going? Mr.?)

Aa, sonata no shiroi ude ni tsutsumare
Kage to hikari toketeyuku toki
Utsukushii uta, yasashii neiro hibiku
"Owari no hajimari"

English[edit | edit source]

I never doubted for a moment
That there was anything I couldn't get my hands on.
If you desire it too greedily, the fate you were expecting
Will collapse... with a dull roar.

My beloved ones,
gather before me.
Together, let us fall into a slumber
from which there is no waking!

(Where are we going? Mr.?)

Ahh, wrapped in your white arms
In a moment when shadow and light melt together
A beautiful song, its gentle tones echoing
"The beginning of the end"

Song Production Information[1][edit | edit source]

Freddie Hatae[edit | edit source]

This is Freddie Hatae. I'm overjoyed to appear in a new song after a long while.

Well, this song is by Eleharmonica. Is it the end? The beginning? Or a bit of both?
I understand it as the beginning of a new love.
And then, we somehow left a mark on history.

Living things have a beginning and an end.
The beginning isn't something you can choose for yourself.
However, wouldn't it be nice if you could somehow change the end to your liking?

Well no, I don't get to decide my own ending.

I'll just enjoy the transformation.

Eleharmonica (Seiya Murai)[edit | edit source]

All things, from the moment we are born and everything begins, are moving towards an end that we do not know when it will come.
Therefore, it can be said that the moment a baby makes its first cry is the beginning of the end.

Will the ending be beautiful and joyous? At the moment the story ends there is an instant playback, likened to a revolving lantern. Until that time when we recall our memories, we won't know the answer.

"Owari no Hajimari" is not necessarily pessimistically lamenting the end of the world.
It is expressing joy for the moment when something is just about to be born.

At that time, in that instant, I want to share that moment with the one I love... It's an exceedingly natural desire.
Now, let us rejoice in the shining beginning and advance towards the end without regret... (Hoho~)
