ギリギリまで Love Forever
Ah Believe on the Baby
Performed by Walküre
Standing atop the fiery ruins of a building burnt to ground
Got no idea how long it’s been or
How I even got here
Fighting to catch a breath of air as the fires rise around
What is it I seek? What if I find it?
Won’t be any good here
Erase them, exceed them:
Forget the old ecstasies
For better or the very worst
You go for the future
Till we can’t take it, love forever
Till you feel it aching, sing together
And you’ll find your soul
Coiling up with the thrill, yeah!
If you still scream on through the pleasure
Live in the extreme in all endeavours
Then you’ll find beyond
The innocence of ruin
Ahh believe on the baby
Satisfy me, and I will forgive
Climaxing in chaos!
“破滅の純情” (hametsu no junjou) suggests not a destructive innocence, but rather the innocence inherent in an act of destruction.
