"Master, you were right.
You are the harmless kind."
Whatever made you say so?

"I got robbed of my principles
Just as I was about to hide
In the comfort of your nest."

How come they were able to
Take advantage of your age.
Frozen feathers make good substitutes
For twinkling blades

"Master, I fell into a stream.
It turned into black and white."
It's not the effect of your hide.

"Your feathers are dripping with blood."
How come you can sense my ire
Even if you're blinded by a heartache?

Frozen feathers
Disguised as twinkling blades
Come to take advantage
Of how you depict age.

When I tear my old self off
I'll hum along to the song
Of the vile sunlight
Even if I've no intention to refuse its crimes

"I'll do as you say."
You can start by sacrificing yourself
To aid my return.
"I thought I was your disciple."
Yes, one without discipline.
It sounds more like a clever guess.

"Master, you were right.
I'm your beginning."
I pray that we'll never have to end
