Title: Prelati's Spellbook
Album: Gate of AVALON
Artist: WAVE
Music: Morrigan / Lyrics: Konkon / Vocal: Yuri Nazuka (Lily)


This song is especially important to me. It is a fan song made for Gilles de Rais in Fate/Zero. My sweet Gilles, he is such is an underrated character, who will probably never be appreciated by anyone English speaking. Wake up sheeple. Nobody got me, but Japanese Twitter got me. What else do I have to say about it.

Its the first track on this video.


Warera no inori wo mimoto ni kami o
Our prayer is in the presence of God




Mihata no moto ni tsudoi
kachieta eiyo wa tooku
nokosareshi kono mi ni
shinzubeki mono wa itsuko

Meeting under the banner
The glory it once had is long gone
Left behind by those eyes
When can you have too much faith?

Oh God




chinurareshi kumotsu
taihai no utage wo
warera no kono inori
douka uketoritamae

An offering smeared with blood
Is our banquet of filth
This prayer of ours
I beg you to somehow receive it




zetsubou to doukoku wo
ima koko ni sasageyou
kono ai de idai ni naru
kami no na wo tataeyou

This despair and lamentation
Right here and now I sacrifice it all
In this love, I become mighty
Filled with Gods name




seijou no eiyo mo
kono mi no akugyaku sae
hitoshiku naki mono ga
azawarau naraba

Honor and purity are
just heinousness before these eyes
Equally this crying
Is only to mock you

Oh God




owaranu nageki wo
haitoku no kagiri wo
warera no kono inori
douka uketoritamae

This endless mourning
To the limits of corruption,
This prayer of ours
I beg you to somehow receive it




zetsubou to doukoku wo
ima koko ni sasageyou
kono ai de idai ni naru
kami no na wo tataeyou

Despair and lamentation
Right here and now I sacrifice it all
In this love, I become mighty
Filled with Godsí name

I thought the first line sounded like 'close to ears', which is fairly creepy and suitable, but because they say 'mimoto' later I saw that can mean 'close to the presence of' . Learning is fun.
