Elfen Lied ♪ Lilium
i wish to bore myself, a task drear and dear, of bearing naked girls; bodily toil and moil. in that i learn contact, of flesh and humanity. and meditate the heavy duty, of men and eternity.
The lyrics is in Latin.
Os iusti meditabitur sapientiam, Et lingua eius loquetur indicium. Beatus vir qui suffert tentationem, Quoniqm cum probates fuerit accipient coronam vitae. Kyrie, ignis divine, eleison. O quam sancta, quam serena, Quam benigma, quam amoena, O castitatis lilium.
The mouth of the just shall meditate wisdom And his language shall become clear Blessed is he who suffers temptation Since he, with striving, shall receive the crown of life Lord, fire divine, have mercy O how sacred, how serene, how kind, how lovely O, lilly of chastity!
A song that presses human suffering in your eardrum. Incongruously, it's from a Japanese anime. While its theme is a sad human story, but visually filled with cheap violence, sex, gore.
