近づいて手を伸ばした 明日へと続く光



近づいて遠のいていく 真実を掴む為に
見つける為に かけがえのない仲間と



Chikazuite te o nobashita ashita e to tsuzuku hikari
Ashimoto ni hirogaru kono sekai no yume o mita

Yume to kibou wa doko ni aru nante shiranai yo
Hashiri mawatte sagashite mo mitsukaranai
Shinjitsu to uso no hazama ni ochiteiru no kana
Bokura no monogatari nara hajimatte mo inai

Ashita e tsuzuku kuzure ochisouna michi mo
Yowaki ni naru mae ni tobidashite ikou

Chikazuite tounoite iku shinjitsu o tsukamu tame ni
Mienai mirai kara kibou o sagashidasu
Dare yori mo katai kokoro
Mi ni tsukete kakeagaru yo
Yowasa to tatakatte kachiagaru tsuyosa o
Mitsukeru tame ni kakegae no nai nakama to

Ashimoto ni hirogaru kono sekai no asu o mita


Your approaching hand reached out towards tomorrow with a following light
My pace quickened, and I saw this world's dream

How can anyone say for sure where dreams and hopes can be found
Running around in circles, searching for the undiscovered?
How can the valley between lies and truth be crumbling away
When our story hasn't even begun?

The path that leads towards tomorrow is collapsing
So let's take off before it becomes too unstable

Take that approaching escape so that we can seize the truth
We'll find the hope from that unseen future
Our hearts are steadier than anyone's
We fight with our weaknesses
struggling through the fight and winning with our strengths
I will find it with my irreplaceable comrades

My pace quickened, and I saw this world's tomorrow
