Haruka tooku yoru o koete
Sabaku no umi o samayou
Kami no koe wa shinkirou
Wasurerareta hitobito
Kage wa shiroku yurameki tatsu
Ima hitotabi no maboroshi
Aoku moeru yuusha no yume
Towa ni nemuru hitobito

English translation

Crossing the distant night,
Wandering the desert sea.
The gods' voices are mirages;
The forgotten people.
Shadows flicker palely, then stand;
For one moment, an illusion.
A hero's dream, burning blue,
The people, sleeping forever.
