English Kanji
I’ll be there by your side
in the land of twilight
in your dream I will go
till we find the sunrise
貴方の側へ行こう
黄昏の国へと
貴方の夢の中へ行こう
夜明けを見つけるまで
 
you are lost in nightmare
deep in blue illusion
one more kiss to wake you up
come be mine, you are mine
貴方は悪夢の中に
深く蒼い幻想の中に失われた
目覚めのキスをもう一つ
私の側へ来て
貴方は私のもの
 
I will be there seekin’ for liminality
no destinations to see, I wander
in quiet places so dark as eternity
I’m crying, calling your name
I’m searching for you
境界線を探しに行こう
何処へとも知らずさすらい
永遠のように暗く静かな場所で
私は泣きながら貴方の名前を呼んでいる
貴方を探している
 
dreaming in the land of twilight
we are in the land of twilight
deep in blue eternity
search for liminality
黄昏の国の直中で
私達は夢を見る
蒼い幻想の直中で
境界線を探し続ける

    I recognized recently this song was back masked… The fact that the rhythm was a reverse of the way other parts of the song play it. Exactly reversed. Perhaps your goal was to outreach, wondering if there was somebody else out there like that… A hidden plea..? People like me…
    Others see no connect, but… I know the patterns all too well. There seems to be no escaping that, nor the loneliness that accompanies the understanding… Seeing things nobody else does…

    I loved this song since I first heard it, because I can relate to it… I feel completely isolated. I can see into other people, I can understand them, but the consequence is they cannot see me, and I fear it may be the case that it is impossible. I feel a lack of meaning; a lack of direction… I wander, too, aimlessly, hoping to stumble across something to make my understanding… worth it. All of my life I had searched for the answer to “Why?”… I found it. But now… knowing this isn’t real… “seeking liminality”… seeking the threshold, I know for the purpose of surpassing it. Understanding why potential would manifest in ways such as this, knowing that we’re connected, but given no hint to why there is this residual feeling… Truth is timeless; I know this is the consequence of what should have been love, but maybe a better description would be desperation. Seeking the limit, the thing that makes things how they are, that led us to be how we are… I want to understand it too. It always seems just out of reach, but do you also feel compelled by the pain of solitude and disconnect?
    It’s like if you don’t keep chasing it, all meaning dissipates. Yet I know the reason of this, and the other side… I was there when I was in a coma.

    I doubt there would be a follow up… and maybe I’m completely off in my interpretation… but I hope, for any people trapped there, not just myself, there is a way out.

    2014 Live version is a bit disappointing…

    Isn’t it this song’s Title “Liminality” and not Luminality from Hack//LIMINALITY?
