Lyrics

Sono yume wa kokoro no ibasho
Inochi yori kowareyasuki mono
Nando demo sutete wa mitsuke
Yasuraka ni sā nemure

Myaku utsu shōdō ni negai wa okasare
Wasurete shimau hodo mata omoidasu yo

Kono utsukushiki zankoku na sekai de wa
Mada ikiteiru koto "naze" to tou bakari de
Ā boku-tachi wa kono tsuyosa yowasa de
Nani o mamoru no darō mō risei nado
Nai naraba

Ano sora wa setsunai no darō
Maiagaru hai to shinkirou
Atatakai kotoba ni kogoe
Hitoshirezu sā nemure
Nebatsuku gensō ni nageki wa kakusare
Chigitte shimau hodo mata karamitsuku yo

Kono utsukushiki zankoku na sekai de wa
Tada shinde yuku koto "mate" to kou bakari de
Ā boku-tachi wa kazamidori tobezu ni
Shinjitsu wa uso yori kirei ka dōka
Wakaranai

Moshimo bokura uta naraba
Ano kaze ni ho o age
Mayowazu ni tada dareka no moto e
Kibō o todoke ni yuku no ni

Kono utsukushiki zankoku na sekai de wa
Mada ikite iru koto "naze" to tou bakari de
Ā boku-tachi wa kono tsuyosa yowasa de
Nani o mamoru no darō mō risei nado
Nai naraba

その夢は こころの居場所
生命より 壊れやすきもの
何度でも 捨てては見つけ
安らかに さぁ眠れ

脈打つ衝動に 願いは犯され
忘れてしまうほど また想い出すよ

この 美しき残酷な世界では
まだ生きていること「何故」と問うばかりで…
ボクたちは この強さ 弱さで
何を護るのだろう もう理性など
無いならば

あの空は 切ないのだろう
舞い上がる 灰と蜃気楼
温かい 言葉に凍え
人知れず さぁ眠れ

ねばつく幻想に 嘆きは隠され
千切ってしまうほど また絡みつくよ

この 美しき残酷な世界では
ただ死んでゆくこと「待て」と乞うばかりで…
ボクたちは 風見鶏 飛べずに
真実は嘘より 綺麗かどうか
分からない

もしもボクら歌ならば
あの風に 帆を上げ
迷わずにただ 誰かの元へ
希望 届けに行くのに

この 美しき残酷な世界では
まだ生きていること「何故」と問うばかりで…
ボクたちは この強さ 弱さで
何を護るのだろう もう理性など
無いならば

Your dream is where your heart is
It’s something more fragile than life itself
No matter how many times you throw it away, you still find it
So rest in peace now

Your wish is violated by your pulsing urge
and as much as you forget about it, you recall it again

In this beautiful and cruel world
We only ask “why” we’re still alive…
Ah, what are we going to protect
with our strength and weakness? If reason
no longer exists

That sky looks sad
Ashes and mirages rise up
You freeze in warm words
So rest in secret now

Your grief is hidden by fantasies sticking to you
and as much as it tears apart, it joins back together again

In this beautiful and cruel world
We only beg for death to “wait”…
Ah, we’re flightless weathercocks
We don’t know if the truth
is more beautiful than lies or not

If we are songs
Then we’ll raise the flags to that wind
and just send hope to someone
without hesitation, if only…

In this beautiful and cruel world
We only ask “why” we’re still alive…
Ah, what are we going to protect
with our strength and weakness? If reason
no longer exists

Ending Animation

Stars, planets, and comets pass by until a small knife is seen soaring through the air, falling to the ground where a young Mikasa Ackermann runs through a forest. She comes to a clearing, where dozens of bloodied knives lay in the ground. Droplets of blood rise from the earth as the wind blows against Mikasa's dress while she clutches a small blade in her hand. The wind blows her scarf against her face until it falls away, Mikasa's face now matured and filled with determination.

In the streets of Trost, Mikasa in a Cadet Corps uniform watches as two birds fly through the skies. She turns to the gate of Wall Rose where she sees a young Eren Jaeger who soon turns into his older self in the Cadet Corps uniform. Mikasa approaches Eren as the two birds fly over the Walls, the stars hanging overhead.
