1 Revo 5:27

Von woher weht der Wind und wohin wird er getreten?
 Der abgeschossene Pfeil trotzdem entgeht und fliegt davon.
 Die Spuren des Angriffs.
 Es ist die lange Weg in die Freiheit.
 Hinter dem brennenden Horizont sah ein Mann was das war...

今君の瞳(目)の前には どんな景色が広がっている?
高い壁に遮られた視界 何が見えるのだろう?

空を征く《鳥》の眼には どんな地平が映っている?
高い壁に鎖された未来 君は壊すのだろう?

紅蓮の灯を纏い 水平線の彼方へと
沈みゆく この夕陽を 君は何時か 必ず追い越して
紅蓮の《矢》のように 己をも灼きながら
遥か自由へと進むだろう……

地に萌える草の芽には どんな希望が宿っている?
高い壁に護られた世界 何れ変えるのだろう?

紅蓮の花が咲き 弔いの鐘が響く
名も知らぬ どの戦果も 道を通り 必ず憶い出す
紅蓮の《矢》のように 過ぎ去りし時を超え
絶えず自由へと進むだろう……

これからも続く戦いは 更に苛烈さを増すけれど
今君が其処に立つだけで 誰かの勇気になっている

嗚呼… 二ヶ月後の君へ 何を言えば良いだろう
言葉の無力さを 噛み締める……

紅蓮の灯火は十三の冬を巡り
燃え尽きる その軌跡は 僕が全て 必ず詩にする
紅蓮の《矢》のように あの空を翔け抜けて
君は自由へと進むだろう……

君はまだ何も識らない 世界のことも本当の敵も
広がる地平未知の世界へ 夢見る時を終えて旅立とう

奪えない自由は 何時だって 其処にある
全てを背負い さあ 征こうぜ!

An dich in zwei Monaten

Von woher weht der Wind und wohin wird er getreten?

Nigatsu kichijitsu bousho nite[1]

Where is the wind blowing from, and where is it heading to?
The fired arrow escapes and soars away...
The Traces of the Attack
That is the long Path to Freedom
Behind the Burning Horizon, what that man saw was...

What kind of scenery lies before your eyes right now?
What do you see with your vision blocked by tall walls?

What kind of horizon is reflected in the eyes of the bird that soars the skies?
Will you destroy the future bound by the tall walls?

Wreathing yourself in crimson light, you head beyond the horizon
I’m sure that one day, you’ll overtake this setting sun
Like a crimson arrow, you will set yourself ablaze
And head towards the distant freedom…

What kind of hope lies in the grass buds sprouting from the earth?
Will you someday change the world protected by tall walls?

Crimson flowers bloom, and the funeral bell tolls
Though their names may remain unknown, their deeds will be remembered by all who pass by
Like a crimson arrow, you will overcome times past
And ceaselessly head towards freedom…

This battle will only grow harsher with the passing of time
But the fact that you’re still standing there brings courage to people

Oh…what should I say to you in two months?
I’m getting a taste of the powerlessness of words…

The crimson light will go around thirteen winters

I promise I will turn the fiery trails you leave behind into song
Like a crimson arrow, you will soar across that sky
And head towards freedom…

You have yet to know anything about this world or your true enemies
Stop dreaming about the expanding horizons in a world unknown, and start your journey instead

The freedom that cannot be denied of us always lies there
Take the world on your shoulders, come on…let’s go!

To you in Two Months

-To you in two months, who will continue to fight

A lucky day in February, somewhere[2]

Notes: This song is written in the form of a letter to the characters. Its title is a reference to both the title of the first episode and the 2-month gap between Historia Reiss's coronation and the departure to Shiganshina District in the year 850.

Eine Botschaft in 14 Zeichen

あなたを 叩き起こし 今日も騒がしい一日が始まる

「好き嫌いせず、野菜も食べなさい!」と
また効き目の薄い小言を 繰り返す

今日もまた 泥だらけになって 傷を作って帰ってくるのかしら?
心配ばかりで 小皺も増えるわ
まったく 男の子の母親なんて なるもんじゃないわ!

けれど
そん毎日を 私は愛してた 本当は 残酷な この世界を
嗚呼… 時間よ止まれ 穏やかな《日常》(とき)をずっと
ずっと… ずっと… ずっと… あなた達と 生きたかった……

でも それは愚かな願い 人はいずれ死に逝くもの
子は育ち 親を超えて行く それが それこそが幸せ

平凡な私は 長い間 自分の命以上には
価値のあるものを 見つけられなかった
あなたが 生まれるまでは……

―だから
特別じゃなくても 人より優れてなくても
誰かに認められなくても
あなたは生きてるだけで 既に偉大なのよ
お願い どうか忘れないで―

例えあなたが生まれた事を いつか呪う日が来たとしても
信じているわ あなたの行く道は 間違ってなどいないと
どうか 自分を信じて―

最期の空に 羽撃く《とり》よ
どうか あの子に伝えておくれ
愛しているわ 愛しているわ

14-Lettered Message

Another noisy day begins with shaking you awake
“Don’t be picky and eat your veggies!”
I scold you again, as ineffective as it is

I wonder if you’ll come back covered in mud and wounds again?
All this worrying about you is making these wrinkles worse
Geez, being the mother to a son sure isn’t easy!

But
I truly loved those days, and this genuinely cruel world
Oh…if only time would stop, because I wanted to be with you all
Through these peaceful days…forever…and ever…and ever…

But that is a foolish desire, for all humans will meet their end
Children grow and surpass their parents, and that is nothing but happiness

As ordinary as I am, I couldn’t find anything
More valuable than my own life for the longest time
That is, until you were born…

-So
Even if you’re not special, even if you’re not exceptional
Even if nobody acknowledges you
You’re amazing just for being alive
So please don’t forget-

Even if you eventually come to curse your birth
I believe that you’ll not go down a wrong path
So have faith in yourself -

Oh, bird soaring across the final sky
Please let that child know
That I love him, I love him so much…

"Thank you for being born" [4]

Notes: A message from Carla Jaeger to her son Eren before her death. There are two 14 lettered messages, the first being "Don’t be picky and eat your veggies!” and the second being "Thank you for being born".

壁の彼方 駆けだす影 皆を連れて 南目指す
兵馬の群れ 平和の為 礎となる 意志を抱いて

ーだが

今は独り 今際の《同胞》(とも) 切り捨てても 北を目指す
上手くいかず 馬も無くし 原始的に 原野を奔る

壊れた装置は投げ棄てた 鍛えた己の足で往く
世界が何れほど無慈悲でも 私は最期まで屈しない

文明の恩恵とは何か?
剣の代わりに取った《ペン》を 戦う意志で走らせ

武器を構え 不気味な森 翳りの中 壁を目指す
震える手で 古い《手帳》 記したのは 知り得た事実

恐怖はいつでも牙を剥く 弱音を吐くのを待っている
自由を求めて踏み出した 私は最期まで屈しない

木立の陰に 不意に現れた 巨人はなんと!? 口を開きー
「…ユ…ミル…の…たみ……」「…ユミル…さま…」「よくぞ…」

かけた問いに 言葉はなく
ただ… うめき声だけが 森の静寂(しじま)に響く

人類史上初めて 巨人と意思を通わせた……
そう思ったのは幻想 現実はいつも限界で

上回る(オーバー)… 許容量(キャパシティ)… キレた… 私は…
矢継ぎ早… 悪意を… 射ちだす… 「この世から消え失せろ‼︎」

代わる代わる 変わる事態 怒号の果て 何処を目指す?
追われる影 終わりのない 問いに惑う 遠い空の下

潰えた希望に背を向けて 背負った《翼》を翻し
儚い明日へと走り出す 私は最期まで尸ー

手にした全てが奪われる 最後は誰にも訪れる
人生(いのち)が何れほど無意味でも 私は最期まで闘った
嗚呼… 私は最期まで屈しない……

「これは、最期まで闘った イルゼ・ラングナーの戦果だ」

The Final Battle Deed

Leaving the walls behind, we rushed forth in kind; I brought with me a troop, and south we head as a group
All of us on horseback, our thoughts on the same track; united we are in determination, paving the path to peace our fixation

- But

Now I’m all alone, and my comrades all gone; north is where I head, even if it means leaving them dead
Plan botched, and horse lost; resorting to basic ways, I dash across the plains

I threw away my broken device, and relied only on my own trained legs
No matter how merciless the world is, I will never give in

What blessings did civilization bring us?
I took up a pen in place of a sword, wielding it with the will to fight

With weapons at the ready, in a forest so creepy; I’m covered in shade, and on course to the walls I stayed
In these trembling hands I took, an ancient and worn notebook; on these pages I’ve recorded, the truths I discovered

Fear is always ready to bare its fangs, waiting hungrily for any sign of weakness
I took off seeking freedom, and I’ll never give in

Without any warning, a titan appeared from behind the trees, but wait!? It opened its mouth-
“…subjects…of..Ymir…” “…great….Ymir…” “Well met…”

- and out came these meaningful words…

In it…I saw…a spark of…intelligence…
I even thought…that communication…was possible…
And so…I summoned my words…and posed-

A question to which there is no answer
Only bellowing resounded across the silent forest

I could be the first to communicate with a titan in the history of mankind…
Or so I thought, but that’s mere fantasy, and reality has its limits

This was…too much to handle…and I…simply snapped…
Immediately…I gathered all my malice…and spat out… “Begone from this world!!”

A changing situation, constantly in fluctuation; my angry roars exhausted, where am I headed?
Shadow given chase, with endless questions keeping pace; my mind filled with whys, under a faraway sky

I turn my back on crushed hope, my wings fluttering behind me
Taking off towards a fragile tomorrow, I will never give i-

Everything was taken from me, and the end comes upon everyone
No matter how meaningless life is, I kept on fighting till the end
Oh…I will never give in…

“This is the final battle deed left behind by Ilse Langnar, who fought on until the very end…”[6]

Notes: This song is about Ilse Lagnar's final moments before being eaten by a Titan. The last line is spoken by Levi as he finds Ilse's diary.

あなたの厳しさはいつも きっと優しさの裏返しで
辛辣な言葉の向こうにも 温かなヒカリを私は感じていました

Die Flügel des Lichts

思い返せば 辛い事もあったけれど…
迷いなく 笑い合い 歩んでこれた気がした…

先のことなど 誰にも分からないけれど…
少しでも 後悔の 少ない道を選べるように…

そんなあなたの背中 誰が護るのでしょう?

小さな羽根が一つずつ 集まって 象る《白い翼》
小さな命一つずつ 喪って 遺した《黒い翼》

《鳥》は飛ぶ為に 生まれてきたとしても
片翼では きっと上手く 空は飛べないでしょう
全ての白と黒の 意志をあなたは背負って
遙か彼方 壁を超えて 皆を導いて逝くのでしょう

私は… その事を… 信じて逝きます…
嗚呼… 名残り… 惜しいけど… もう… 時間のようです
最期に… もう一つ… 伝えたい想いが…

Your sternness always stems from gentleness
And I felt a warm light behind those harsh words
I recall plenty of painful things…
But I made it to where I am, free of doubts, sharing smiles and laughter along the way…

The light of the Dual Wings

Nobody knows what’ll happen in the future…
But you’ve always been behind me, giving me the push needed…
To choose the path of least regrets, right?

But who will watch your back?
Tiny feathers gather one by one, forming a white wing
Fragile lives are lost one by one, leaving behind a black wing

Though a bird may be born to soar across the skies
I’m sure it won’t be able to fly well with only one wing
But you will shoulder the determination of all that is white and black
And guide everyone to great distances beyond the walls

And so…I will die….believing that…
Oh…how I wish this would last…but…it seems like my time is up…
I have….one last thing…I’d like to tell you…
No…nevermind…it’s nothing…

Tiny feathers gather one by one, forming a white wing
Fragile lives are lost one by one, leaving behind a black wing

In my final moments, did I appear as a brave soldier to your eyes?
Don’t forget that you have the light of dual wings sprouting from your back
And if I were to give a name to the light I felt…yes…it would be…hope…[10]

Notes: This song is about Petra Rall and her final moments before being killed by the Female Titan. The sound of Petra's body being rolled off the cart by Levi can be heard at the end of the song.

自由とは何か?

人が人を殺すのに 例えばどんな
大義が必要だろうか?
敵を屠るべき悪魔だと断罪するば
本当に心は痛まないのだろうか?

こんな筈じゃなかった… 仕方がなかった…

何ひとつ掴めぬまま… 奈落へと墜ちてゆく…

Tsumetai… hitsugi no… naka de… mita yume o…
Itsu no hi ni ka… anta ni mo… hanasu toki ga… kurudarou ka?[11]

What is freedom?
Who does life belong to?
You don’t think about these complicated matters…
You just charge straight ahead…
And I…was just a bit jealous of you…

She Lies in a Cold Coffin

What kind of moral cause do we need
To justify one human killing another?
If we judge our enemies to be demons deserving of death
Do we not really not feel pain in our hearts?

It wasn’t supposed to be this way…I didn’t have a choice…
Even if I tried to make excuses, none of you will forgive me, right?
Ah…evil must perish…and you reap what you sow…
I don’t mean to insist, but I simply had to do it…

If I had a future…where freedom was within my grasp…
What choice would I make…? I still don’t know…
But I’m given no choice…in this absurd world….
But still I fought on…accepting the hand I was dealt…

I won’t let anybody call my father’s…no…my life…
Full of mistakes!
Because my bet begins right here, right now…

The shadow of Ideas appears in allegory
Flickering against the wall woven from titans
The blind subjects were deceived afar
And hometown lies distant across the sea

Stained by the scarlet of sin, they fly unknowingly to their own deaths
Countless shadows fall to the earth and call dusk upon themselves…

Weak ones, cunning ones, water naturally falls towards lower ground
Time repeats itself without pause, a <rondo> much like regret
I couldn’t become a soldier, and fell short of a warrior
Now that I’ve taken off beyond the walls, where should I return to?

I can dream of freedom…but reality ties me down…
Corpses pile up like a mountain…but I’m still far from reaching the sky…
I reach out my fingers…and feel the sharp pain of slashing blades…
Without a single thing in my grasp…I descend towards hell…

Was my father’s…no…my life…
Full of mistakes? Nobody knows…

I had a dream…within…a cold…coffin…
Will there ever be a day…when I…tell you that dream?[12]

Notes: This song is about Annie Leonhart and her crystallisation following her defeat at the end of the Assault on Stohess.

スイマセン ソノ チーハン クイテーガー

Die Jugend ist ein Feuerwerk

空を征く《鳥》よ
戦場に散った その花弁は何色だった?

他愛も無い  →  《愛》(ラブ)もあれば?
大切なモノ  →  《米?喜劇?》(コメ)もある?
取り戻したいとキミは願った?

Spinning, spinning, spin-off, school-life

不条理な校則 無為な拘束
鳥籠の 《扉》(ドア) 蹴り破って
飛び出す青春 《永遠》(とわ)の一瞬を

馬鹿騒げ祭典 奇跡の再転
夜空を舞う 花火のように 鮮やかな《軌跡》を描き

風渡る空を
誰かが見上げた 星を探して《よだか》は燃えた?

自由の無い  →  《校門》(かべ)の中で?
無慈悲なセカイ  →  終わらせる?
打ち壊したいとキミは願った?

Spinning, spinning, spin-out, school-days

随順な態勢 強いる体制
紅蓮の火種 蒔き散らして
終わらぬ戦闘 何時も先頭で

駆け抜ける喧噪 まるで幻想
夜空を縫う 花火のように 想い出を 季節に刻み

この傷口は痛々しいか? 誰が中二だって?
身の程なんて 大人のように 弁えてなんか やらないぜ
俺達は中一だ!

夢見た光景 熱い憧憬
弱気な心 振り払って
前のめり前進 絶えず漸進を

泥塗れ《回転》(ローリン) 開け大輪
夜空を恋う 花火のように 燃え上がる 希望を歌う

嗚呼… 進撃  →  進撃  →  中学校!!!

ブラボー!!

BRAVO!!

BRAVO!!

Excuse me, but I’d like to eat that cheese burger!

Youth is like Fireworks

O, bird that soars across the skies
What color did the flower petals have when they scattered on the battlefield?

(If you have <love>?)
These are precious things
(Will you also have <rice? Comedy?>)*
As childish as they may be
Did you wish to regain them?

Spinning, spinning, spin-off, school life

Absurd school rules, senseless restraints
Kick down those <doors> to your bird cage
Youth leaps out in one moment of <eternity>

A silly and boisterous festival, a miraculous turn of events
Like the fireworks that adorn the night sky, it leaves behind brilliant trails

Who was it that looked upon the windy skies?
Did the nighthawk burn brightly in its search for a star?

(Within the school gates[walls]?)
There is no freedom to speak of
(Will you bring an end to it?)
In this merciless world
Did you wish to destroy such a world?

Spinning, spinning, spin-out, school days

Meek obedience, enforced by the system
Sow the seedlings of crimson fire
Always right at the head of this endless battle

All the hustle and bustle, it’s like a fantasy
Like the fireworks that paint the night sky, it engraves these memories upon passing seasons

Can’t bear to look at these wounds? Who has 8th grade syndrome now?
I’m not gonna ‘know my place’, cuz that’s the job of adults!
We’re in 7th grade!

A scene we dreamt of, such passionate adoration
Rid yourself of your weak hearts
And move forth, steady in your advancement

Roll around in mud and open up those blossoms
Like the fireworks that are drawn to the night sky, it sings of a flaming hope

Ah…attack…attack…on junior high!

BRAVO!! [13]

Notes: The OP for Attack on Titan: Junior High

Music video

Jiyuu no Daishou [Theatrical Size] was a music video included in the LE featuring the animated sequence from Attack on Titan Part 2: Jiyuu no Tsubasa for which Jiyuu no Daishou was created. Both the song and lyrics were made especially with the beginning of the Scouting Mission in mind, to synchronize with the animation and hint at future story developments.

Trivia

  • The LE packaging features one of the walls, with different sleeves featuring an open gate, a gate blocked by a boulder and a gate blocked by a hardened titan.
  • It is implied Revo can transform into a bird, as it is shown in the packaging and the Guren no Yumiya music video, heard in the first bonus song, and referenced in 14 Moji no Dengon lyrics.
  • The title "14 Moji no Dengon" is a reference to a Sound Horizon song, "11 Moji no Dengon", which also features a dying mother leaving an ambiguous message to her child.
  • The full version of Seishun wa Hanabi no you ni features a lyric about a nighthawk, which was the main motif of a Sound Horizon single about a band from a parallel world, just like Attack on Titan: Junior High is a parallel world to Attack on Titan.
