Kitto ningyo no yō ni Ieki no pūru oyogu Kitto ageha no yō ni sanagi wa hane hayasu
Anata nara yuruseru wa ne Zankoku na ikimono demo
Ashi o jimen ni wasureta wa Nokosanai de ne

You want to spread your wings and fly,
dreaming of the swallowtail butterfly.
you would seem to suit your shed skin……daydream
hit by the pounding rain, you couldn't move anymore
you're just waiting to become food....my mouth opens.
you're almost ready to take flight, so close to sprouting wings.
still my adorable pupa, you are now… an adult aren't you?
sucking the honey, you who loved the flowers
don't notice me as my beak comes at
you blooming all over with fogura and escargot.
dear pupa, show me tainted wings.
I felt them flitting… from my stomach.
castdown, suddenly shaken, you're broken apart,
your wings tear off
Does a snakeskin suit you now?
spinning you spin and spun,
through a life of the same old same old.
turning you turn and turned as you melt away, .
Shall we blend together into one?
surely you're swimming the digestive juices like a mermaid,
surely a pupa will sprout wings like a swallowtail butterfly.
IF its you I'll allow it,
even if you are a cruel thing.
You forgot my legs on the ground
Don't leave them like that Ok?
The Japanese part in this track's title would normally be read as "Ageha no Hane no Yume wa Sanagi" and translated as "The Swallowtail's Wings' Dream is the Chrysalis". However, the title contains so-called ichiniten, a type of kaeriten that mark the reading order with numbers.
In the booklet of MACABRE, the various ellipses are displayed as white slits.
During the guitar solo before the last verse, Kyo is speaking words that were not included in any publication of the lyrics.
