Walking down the street, one girl
Came into my view and she was staring at me.
As I noticed, I called her.
“Let’s go somewhere together.” She became very happy.
You were very endearing and we hung out for a long time,
But in time, tear flowed down your cheek.
The dearness left over you made me have hatred overflowing.
I wrapped my hands around your neck and exerted force.
Your limp body, over and over again,
I beat with my own hands.
I sprout my seeds into your garden,
But the red, wet bud shall not bloom.
I cut up my arm and bled.
Washing your blood with blood, I shed a tear.
Afterwards, I put you inside a refrigerator,
And buried you just like that under the ground.
Telling myself many times how it was your fault.
I do not need such thing as love.
The fact of being unable to escape guilt that cannot be atoned,
Has led me to death and I died with a white rope.
The tragedy dyed in crimson did not have one thing that changed
And the night of tragedy continues to open its curtain somewhere even now.
One day before Dir En Grey began to record their debut EP MISSA (1997), Kyo was told to change the lyrics of 惨劇の夜, likely because of the brutal imagery. The band even considered to leave out the entire song, now called 霧と繭, for that reason, but decided that since it was the first song the people were to hear, it was too important. A similar case is 業.
According to the Japanese wikipedia, the working title of this song was "Tragedy Night".
Not included in the booklet's lyrics are the words 落ちてゆけ (Ochite yuke), which means "fall down".
On June 14, 1997, Kyo performed a spoken word version of 惨劇の夜 that was called 語り (Katari) in the live report.
