I added a "translated" English tracklist, but left romaji as default since some of these songs ... there is no official translated title, and they're kind of tough (tracks 5 and 9 are especially ... weird)

It's a heart which returns to the primitive age.

My latest post wasn't directly suggested as a translation; I tried to make it clear that the sentence was in the imperative form, and asking a heart to do something, but I really suck at grammar. "Heart, Return to the Primitive [whatever]" is perhaps the correct translation. Primitivity, Primitive age, Primitive state,... I'm less than sure, so hope somebody with better skills decides it.

"O heart, return to thine origin", perhaps?

As for track 5, it was translated "Happiness is the Smell of Sin" on the (semi)official Geneon USA release. (Damn the terrible sound quality though.)

actually it'd be "thy" (edit: I mean, "thy" is cuter to me)

maybe "happiness with a perfume of sin"

Okay, I knew there was a reason I thought "thine" sounded right. Origin begins with a vowel sound, so thine is technically more correct.

According to dictionary.com:
Thy: the possessive case of thou (used as an attributive adjective before a noun beginning with a consonant sound): thy table.

Thine: the possessive case of thou used as an attributive adjective before a noun beginning with a vowel or vowel sound: thine eyes; thine honor.


I don't see how "は" should be rendered "with a". Maybe scent would be a better word than smell, though.

first, I never said that thine was incorrect, I just said I find it's cuter
second, I don't need a lesson about something I already know
third, you are not forced to translate literally, you can interpret (a lot of jap tracklist with official english don't follow the real meaning)

I hope I was clear enough this time?

I wonder why テーゼ is romanized as Thesis (it's a translation)
especially when the very tracklist has These

actually, I will try to forget that
but replacing "e" by "he" (the same guy who uses "ha" when it's "wa")
