Lyrics

Live…! Live your life, now! Can live freely!!
Live…! Live your life, now! Can live freely!!

Nani wo shinjite nani wo erabu no ka
Hito wa itsudatte sō, jiyū no naka
Jiyū wo motome furīzu shite iru
Aru ga mama wo toraerarezu ni

(Samayō) Kono tenohira (hikiyose) yasashiku tsutsunda
(Kirameku) Ai no kakera sagashi
(Wagamama ni) Sugiyuku ima wo (oikakete) kōkai ni kaeru yori
(try) Asu e (try) tsunagō

Mune no uta wa soko ni aru no ka?
Sei wo ukekasaneru kono kodō
Ta ga tame ni hibikaseru…?
Ono ga michi wo tsuranuke
Unare kakugo wo shiru mono nara
Sā, muni no senritsu wo hanate

Seigi no dōkoku shikkoku no ikkoku nuritsubushite
Fukanzen ni nageki higeki no shōgeki kesenai mama

(Shizuka ni) Kizu wo masaguru (ano hi no) hakanaki negai wa
(Kidzukeba) Doku no yō ni megutte
(Mamoru hodo) Tōnoku kibō (nigeru tabi) nijiri yoru zetsubō
(why?) Asu wa (why?) doko e…
"Kako to iu dokubō kojiakero"

Taenu uta yo kimi ni todoke
Ayamachi mo yowasa mo sarakedashi
Umareta mama no kokoro de
Sono subete kanjitai yo
(cry) Tsuyoku (cry) tsuyoku…

Sakimawari karamawari
Ikidzumari tachitomari
Taiji suru wa ono ga hajimari

Tatoe sekai ga mu ni kishite
Kono mi chiri ni narihatete mo
Kimi to kanadeta tada hitotsu no uta ga
(Kikoeru) Hikari wo (kikoeru) shimeshite (kikoeru) todoroku
"Zenryoku de ikiro kono toki wo"

Kimi no tame ni hibikaseru
Futari no yume wo tsuranuke
Unare kakugo wo shiru mono nara
Sā, muni no senritsu wo hanate

Inochi no oto wo…

Live…! Live your life, now! Can live freely!!

Live…! Live your life, now! Can live freely!!
Live…! Live your life, now! Can live freely!!

何を信じて 何を選ぶのか
人はいつだってそう、自由の中
自由を求め 拘束(フリーズ)している
あるがままを捉えられずに

(彷徨う) この掌 (引き寄せ) 優しく包んだ
(煌めく) 愛の欠片探し
(我儘に) 過ぎ行く今を (追いかけて) 後悔に変えるより
(try) 未来(あす)へ (try) 繋ごう

胸の歌はそこにあるのか?
生を受け重ねる この鼓動
誰が為に響かせる…?
己が道を貫け
唸れ覚悟を知る者なら
さあ、無二の旋律を放て

正義の慟哭 漆黒の一刻塗り潰して
不完全に嘆き 悲劇の衝撃消せないまま

(静かに) 傷を弄る (あの日の) 儚き願いは
(気付けば) 毒のように巡って
(守るほど) 遠退く希望 (逃げるたび) (にじ)り寄る絶望
(why?) 未来(あす)は (why?) どこへ…
“過去という独房 こじ開けろ”

絶えぬ歌よ 君に届け
過ちも弱さも曝け出し
生まれたままの心で
そのすべて感じたいよ
(cry) 強く (cry) 強く…

先回り 空回り
行き詰まり 立ち止まり
対峙するは己が始まり

例え世界が無に帰して
この身塵に成り果てても
君と奏でた ただ一つの歌が
(聞こえる) 光を (聞こえる) 示して (聞こえる) 轟く
“全力で生きろ この瞬間(とき)を”

胸の歌はそこにあるのか?
生を受け重ねる この鼓動
君の為に響かせる
二人の夢を貫け
唸れ覚悟を知る者なら
さあ、無二の旋律を放て

生命(いのち)の音を…

Live…! Live your life, now! Can live freely!!

Live…! Live your life, now! Can live freely!!
Live…! Live your life, now! Can live freely!!

What do you believe in and what is your choice?
People will always have that freedom
But by wishing for it, they freeze
Without being able to comprehend the truth

(Wandering) While being gently (pull back) embraced by these hands
(Shine) And searching for the fragments of love
(Selfishly) Instead of turning (chase it) this fleeing moment into a regret
(Try) Connect it (Try) to tomorrow

Is that where the song in my heart resides?
These beats born into the world build up
For whose sake do they resound…?
I forge my own path forward
If you have the resolve to roar it out
Then unleash the melody that is second to none!

The cries of justice drown out this jet-black moment
Though I grieve for my imperfection, there is no way to quell the impact of a miracle

(Quietly) Opening old wounds (that day) brings a fleeting wish
(If you notice) Clouding my vision like poison
(As much as I protect) Hope fades away (as much as I run) and despair draws near
(Why?) Where is (Why?) tomorrow leading me?
"Escape from the confinement known as your past"

I will give you an immortal song
That lays bare all my faults and weaknesses
I want to feel everything
With this heart as raw as the day I was born
(Cry) Hard (Cry) hard…

Moving ahead, yet going nowhere
Always coming to a standstill
Confronting yourself is just the tip of the iceberg

Even if everything returns to nothing
Even if my body is reduced to dust
That single song we played together
(I can hear it) Illuminates (I can hear it) the way (I can hear it) with its roar
"Live as hard as you can in this moment"

Is that where the song in my heart resides?
These beats born into the world builds up
And they resound for you
We forge our own dream
If you have the resolve to roar it out
Then unleash the melody that is second to none!

This is the sound of life…

Live…! Live your life, now! Can live freely!!

Trivia

  • "Metanoia" derives from the Greek word of the same name: μετάνοια. It symbolizes atonement, repentance or a change of heart, which is commonly found within the New Testament.[1]
    • It could also be taken as an anagram of 'ai no tame', which means 'for love's sake' in Japanese.
  • METANOIA is the only OP theme to be of a different genre—mixed rock.
  • The Duga radar can be seen behind the Symphogear logo in the first few seconds of the OP animation.
  • The B-side "SUMMER PIRATES" references both Stand up! Ready!! and Stand up! Lady!! in its lyrics.
  • Like all other Symphogear opening themes (except for Exterminate), there is a final attack in XV Episode 13 that shares the same name as this song.
