Japanese Translation
Tonight it begins again, the terrible survival trial
Within an inescapable spiral, the bullet of fate is fired

un, deux, trois… one, two, three...
un, deux, trois… one, two, three...
un, deux, trois… one, two, three...
un, deux, trois… one, two, three...

The sun-dappled world has been dyed with despair
I continue to wander rooms, wrapped in suspicion

There, in the fired bullet’s path,
are the contradictory words it will shoot through

Well, tonight it begins again, the terrible survival trial
the game of deceiving and being deceived
where fate is left to dance

Destroying illusions born from contradiction
within an inescapable spiral
the bullet of fate is fired

It begins, wrapped in the darkness of night, the maze of deduction
Toying with logic using secretive tricks

Even in this fake world
in this televised prison, we continue on this way

Look, tonight it begins again, the terrible survival trial
the game of deceiving and being deceived
leading away from the truth

The words that deceive, the traps that surround
fate is left to dance in the space between falsehood and truth

Within this contrived world, this manufactured toy garden
seek to discover hope studded with lies

Let’s love these illusions, as riddled with counterfeits as they are
wandering within the inescapable spiral

Tonight it begins again, the terrible survival trial
the game of deceiving and being deceived
I’ll sit down on the field where we compete

Feigned lies, exposed techniques
the motive that led to it, I’ll swallow it all

Never-ending survival trial with no exit
I wonder if I’ll dissolve with my lies into the cracks between truth and falsehood

Let us meet again in the next world

Trivia

  • The original Japanese lyric for "Destroying illusions born from contradiction" contains a pun. The Kanji used for contradiction is 矛盾, pronounced "mujun", which is the first syllables of Mukuro Ikusaba and Junko Enoshima first names. Given this, the lyric can also be read as "destroying illusions born from Junko and Mukuro".
  • The final lyric "Let us meet again in the next world", is a reference to Celestia's final words before she is executed in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.
