raatkerani: (padma)
A few years ago, a daughter of a neighbor committed suicide by starvation. And I wonder how someone can go through that suffering to die. Because there are faster methods if you just want to end it. But most of all, I wonder if she just live one day longer, would she meet another man who could make her happy. I've been interested with the theme of "death" and "suicide" for a long time, perhaps because I used to wonder what would happen if I die, perhaps because a dear friend of mine tried to commit suicide, perhaps because every life ends with death.

I fell in love with this song. The melody, lyrics, and visualization got into me like hurls of hurricane. That's why I interpret it into English, for myself. Perhaps to try understanding those who decided to end their lives early, in their way, as they see fit. I am trying to understand to remind myself not to put judgement, and to remind myself not to run away from this reality.

The video is a piece of art work set in the forest dubbed as the suicide forest. It is on one side of Mount Fuji, in Shizuoka perfecture. It is an eerie world to enter because you can find dead bodies or belongings of those decided to leave this life. I've never been there, and I don't want to. I don't dare to.

My interpertation is not the same with the official translation from Amazarashi. Just so you be warned.

I'm digging a hole

穴を掘っている 人生どこで間違えた
穴を掘っている 自暴自棄にスコップを突き立てる
風が唸る森 夜鷹なんかが鳴いちゃってさ
まんまるな満月に 見張られてる25時
