猛れども
寄る辺なく
我が声も
風に消ゆ
死出の 衣を まといて 生まるは 呪いか 定めか 問いて
独り 山野を さまよい 生くるは 流れに 任せし 果てよ
なれど 我が前 現れ 叫ぶは 定めに 抗う 侍
なれば 我が魂 燃やして 叫べよ 西風 轟け 舞えよ
Storm, ride the storm
Never-ending
Skies darkened, torn
Heaven-rending
Ire, fury borne
Never-ending
Roar, hear my roar!
風 轟け 風 轟け 風 轟け
吹け 乱れよ 吹け 乱れよ 吹け 乱れよ
風 轟け 風 轟け 風 轟け
吹け 乱れよ 吹け 乱れよ 吹け 天つ風よ

English translation[edit | edit source]

Harbinger of doom
Forsaken by all
Words within the squall
Swallowed by the wind
Branded by death from birth, is this divine torment or judgment I know not
To the end of the world I flee to surrender to the whims of fate
But he shirks not from my rage and speaks of destiny and defiance, the samurai
And lights within my soul a flame─to rise, to roar, to ride the western wind!
Storm, ride the storm
Never-ending
Skies darkened, torn
Heaven-rending
Ire, fury borne
Never-ending
Roar, hear my roar!
Wind, surrender to the wind, surrender to the wind, surrender to the...
Rage, surrender to the rage, surrender to the rage, surrender to the...
Wind, surrender to the wind, surrender to the wind, surrender to the...
Rage, surrender to the rage, surrender to the rage, the wind of the divine
