Lyrics

TV Size

Like the scarlet night veiling the dark
You can hide your fear
Can lie, my dear
このまま夢を見て
血だらけの翼
広げて

What's the lie?
What's the truth?
What to believe?

Like a fallen angel
時の風に
流されて落ちて行く
Into the starry night
女神のように
抱きしめて 永遠を
Fly into heaven

Like the scarlet night veiling the dark
You can hide your fear
Can lie, my dear
Kono mama yume wo mite
Chi darake no tsubasa
Hirogete

What's the lie?
What's the truth?
What to believe?

Like a fallen angel
Toki no kaze ni
Nagasarete ochite yuku
Into the starry night
Megami no youni
Dakishimete eien wo
Fly into heaven

Like the scarlet night veiling the dark
You can hide your fear
Can lie, my dear
Just dreaming forever like this
Those bloodstained wings
Spread them wide!

What's the lie?
What's the truth?
What to believe?

Like a fallen angel
Washed away by the wind of time
then fell
Into the starry night
Just like a goddess
embracing me tight for eternity
Fly into heaven

Complete version

Like the scarlet night veiling the dark
You can hide your fear
Can lie, my dear
このまま 夢を見て 血だらけの翼 広げて

Like a fallen angel 時の風に 流されて 落ちてゆく
Into the starry night 女神のように
抱きしめて 永遠を Fly into heaven

What's the lie? What's the truth? What to believe?
In my life

See the flowers breathing in the rain
Try growing to the edge of light
It's so far away to reach out to the sky
I'll seize, I'll seize the roses with my wings
We'll fly

Like a fallen angel 時の風に 流されて 落ちてゆく
Into the starry night 女神のように 抱きしめて 永遠を
We'll fly away We'll find a way
You can hide your fear Can lie, my dear
We'll see the end, we'll be the end
抱きしめて 永遠を Fly into heaven

Like the scarlet night veiling the dark
You can hide your fear
Can lie, my dear
Kono mama yume wo mite
Chi darake no tsubasa hirogete

Like a fallen angel toki no kaze ni nagasarete ochite yuku
Into the starry night megami no you ni
Dakishimete eien wo
Fly into heaven

What's the lie? What's the truth? What to believe?
In my life

See the flowers breathing in the rain
Try growing to the edge of light
It's so far away to reach out to the sky
I'll seize, I'll seize the roses with my wings
We'll fly

Like a fallen angel toki no kaze ni nagasareta ochite yuku
Into the starry night megami no you ni dakishimete eien wo
We'll fly away, we'll find a way
You can hide your fear, can lie, my dear
We'll see the end, we'll be the end
Dakishimete eien wo, fly into heaven

Like the scarlet night veiling the dark
You can hide your fear, can lie, my dear
Just dreaming forever like this
Those bloodstained wings, spread them wide!

Like a fallen angel washed away by the wind of time then fell
Into the starry night just like a goddess
Embracing me tight for eternity
Fly into heaven

What's the lie? What's the truth? What to believe?
In my life

See the flowers breathing in the rain
Try growing to the edge of light
It's so far away to reach out to the sky
I'll seize, I'll seize the roses with my wings
We'll fly

Like a fallen angel washed away by the wind of time then fell
Into the starry night just like a goddess embracing me tight for eternity
We'll fly away, we'll find a way
You can hide your fear, can lie, my dear
We'll see the end, we'll be the end
Embracing me tight for eternity, fly into heaven

Opening animation

Eren soars through the air with his omni-directional mobility gear. On top of the roof of a building, Mikasa looks behind and sees Eren after landing on top of the same building. Armin sits on top of the roof. His eyes remain closed until he gets up and stands beside Mikasa. Mikasa reaches her hand. Young Eren, Armin, and Mikasa smile happily on top of a roof, before showing the previous scene as their older counterparts gaze up at the sky.

A flashback of Eren, Mikasa, and Armin in their childhood appears as Levi looks over his shoulder. An image of young Eren, Mikasa and Armin walking together is shown which shortly changes to the three walking as recruits of the Scout Regiment.

Levi as a child leans against a wall while in the underground below the capital. He gets off the wall and wanders around the place. A younger Kenny sits at a bar. Young Levi flips a knife and Kenny touches his hat while watching him at the bar.

Erwin gazes through a window and sees an image of himself as a child and his father talking to each other. Young Historia sits in front of Frieda Reiss at a farmyard.

An image of Eren appears on the blue sky while a translucent hand appears in front of him. The image switches to Mikasa and the ghostly hand tries to reach for her. As Armin appears on the sky, the hand starts bleeding, then clenches its fist. A small drop of water lands on top of a body of water and ripples the water as an image of Grisha and Carla appear caressing Eren as an infant. The animation switches to Eren's old home.

Eren stands below the sky as younger Eren bumps into him. Young Eren looks at his older self for a time before running with little Armin and Mikasa behind him. Eren gazes at something with a stern expression on his face. The four Warriors as children wander through the woods. Historia as a child leans on a fence. Young Eren and his friends are running while on the sky when Mikasa's sandal flies from her foot. Young Erwin and Levi walk pass each other. Mikasa's sandal drops onto the ground and the key to Eren's house's basement dangles.

The song concludes with an image of young Eren, Armin, and Mikasa happy together.
