~Kanji~
やわらかい風は花揺らし
空へと立ち上るは砂煙
朝焼けの空織りなす彩
薄い影がのびていく

砂漠の中揺らぐ陽炎
一夜限りの楽園

幻の都現に出でて
湖湧きて泡沫はじけ
さぁ花よ咲けさぁ花よ散れ
儚き命よ踊れ
短き舞台

あてなく彷徨う旅人に
絶えなく降り注ぐ燦然たる陽
重たげな足はりつく喉
鮮やかな影が落ちる

おぼろげに霞む地平線に
浮ぶ癒しの楽園

冷たく冴えた水浴びて
一時ばかり休め旅人
さぁ皆歌えさぁ皆踊れ
その両の手打ち鳴らせ
砂上の舞台

se tia lorist ra sa Loulan
lyen da qua Lop Nur
lek raira LopNur
ma boln se o renatwin
(x4)

彷徨う失われた湖
今よみがえれ楽園

幻の都現に出でて
湖湧きて泡沫はじけ
さぁ花よ咲けさぁ花よ散れ
儚き命よ踊れ

幻の都夢現へと
湖は去り泡沫と消え
さぁ皆歌えさぁ皆踊れ
遥かな時代に祈り捧げよ

一夜限りの幕は下りた

~Translation~

Please do not use this translation for English subbing. Thank you for your understanding.

The flowers are swaying in the gentle wind,
while clouds of sand are whipped up into the sky—
all the beautiful colors weaved into the tapestry of the dawning sky,
above the faint shadow growing below.

The shimmering mirage in the midst of the desert
is the paradise lasting for only one night.

As the phantom capital materializes in the real world,
water wells up in the lake, its foam splashing.
Oh, flowers, bloom before you must wither.
Oh, fleeting lives, dance before you must perish,
on this short-lived stage.

Without a moment’s respite, the brilliant is blazing down
on the aimless wanderer.
His legs feel heavy, and his throat is parched.
Here and there, vibrant shadows are falling.

At the faintly hazy horizon
looms the paradise of solace.

Bathe yourself in the cold, clear water
and rest for a while, traveler.
Come, everyone, dance, sing,
and clap your hands
on this stage upon the sands.

se tia lorist ra sa Loulan
lyen da qua Lop Nur
lek raira LopNur
ma boln se o renatwin
(x4)

The lost wandering lake—
our paradise, be resurrected.

As the phantom capital materializes in the real world,
water wells up in the lake, its foam splashing.
Oh, flowers, bloom before you must wither.
Oh, fleeting lives, dance before you must perish,

The phantom capital is fading away;
the lake is receding, vanishing like water foam.
Come, everyone, dance, sing,
and offer your prayers to the distant lost age.

The curtain has fallen on the one-night paradise.

* Lop Nur (Lop Lake) is the name of a former salt lake in China (mostly dried-up now). The lake was also referred to as the “Wandering Lake.” The Loulan was an ancient kingdom based around an oasis city on the Lop Desert.

    Interesting clothing :’D

    Kiyo’s nice, Surprised there’s not more originals now w/ his v4 update and the majority of the community “saying more males/use male vbs!” Though I guess ppl are still looking forward to Fukase XD (and arsloid was cute but even in the demo i thought it was just ‘meh’, his voice provider sounds much better but maybe we’ll just have to wait til a really good tuner uses him)

    • I wonder if it’s because the majority of (Japanese) composers are males, so they prefer using female Vocaloids XD And Kiyo’s voice seems a bit harder to tune nice, compared to the other Vocaloids. The tuning in Arsloid’s demo didn’t sound great to me, either (though I should probably listen to a few more Arsloid originals)

        LOL yeah, I guess, though I’d just say to use whatever voice fits the song more, there are a handful of female composers though they use females as well and the occasional male…I wonder if Len would be used at all if his design was completely diff/he wasn’t connected to Rin, b/c there’s just as much Rin/Len duets as there are solo stuff from him

        LOL yeah, I mean, the lyrics you translated were amusing but something about the instrumental I didn’t like. I did like the Himitsu wo choudai the irl odottemita group did. IDK if it’s any of the members doing backup harmonies, it’d be cool if they were released as a group like zola though 5 would be more expensive than 3 to make. and ppl say the red head one was the only one who sang so that’s why it’s him (though ppl said one of the korean/half-korean members was singing backup?), idk if he’s the leader b/c i don’t follow them/odottemita side of the community that closely but I prefer the other’s looks a bit more XD; (although tbh some of their wigs look kinda, well, maybe not /bad/ but they could be better [or just dye their hair since it’s not their hairstyles aren’t that ridiculous but maybe they need to keep it natural for their other work lol]) I don’t think there’s too many arsloid originals but there’s probably a handful of covers to listen to

        • Yeah, though they’re pretty expensive, so I can see why some producers only use a few Vocaloids (or only one, even), and they’d choose the characters they like. I’m a girl, but if I were to choose some Vocaloids to buy, I’d probably pick Miku, Luka, and GUMI XD; And yeah, Rin and Len’s character settings play a huge part in their popularity. The songs that are like mini-stories are pretty fun to watch, though.

          I hated translating that song :’D The tuning made it sound as if he was singing with a stuffed nose (for me at least). The wigs look a bit awkward to me, too XD; Their outfits are pretty cool, though. And yeah, I’ve seen quite a few covers, but I usually prefer originals, since I tend to compare the cover to the original otherwise XD;

            Well there’s always high quality utau that are always free but yeah it’s an investment esp with Miku or the other ones that have multiple banks

            lol yeah i like their uniforms XD; apparently one of their/his songs are like an opening for some vampire/harem(?) anime or something. Makes me wonder who’ll be next in the community to get a vb, but it’d be cool and surprising if they did someone pretty unique sounding. Or like a dual gender-voicebank, i mean the real piko’s female voice sounds great IDK if it translates that well into the software but maybe if piko v4 ever comes out it’ll be a thing to look forward to :’D

            • I kind of want a Vocaloid with Yufu’s type of whispery voice. I mean, there’s already Yufu, but I feel that the community still values Vocaloids a lot more than Utaus (at least on the Japanese side). It’d be cool if Yufu became a Vocaloid, too :D

                Haha well, maybe there’ll be an actual audition contest one of these days to get one, though it’s usually art design when there’s official contests like Fukase and a few others. Some of the chinaloids were like voted in/contest entries I think. I don’t know if they’ll just convert Yufu but if the voice actress is willing and scouted that’d be cool too, since Ruby’s creator had an utau before she came out
