Dans un monde parfait l'humanité Existe comme un arc en ciel Avec des couleurs multiples Noir, blanc, jaune et rouge Larmes, larmes Si on continue à vivre comme ça Faire comme ça On a besoin d'unifier tout le monde Pour ensemble vivre dans le monde L'amour et la liberté c'est tout ce qu'il Faut pour l'humanité Sans discrimination raciale Chaque couleur à l'unison Brillante et claire Donnant au monde Paix et liberté
In a perfect world humanity Exists like a rainbow With multiple colours Black, white, yellow and red Tears, tears If we continue to live like this Work like this We need to unify everyone To live together in the world Love and liberty is all it Needs for humanity Without racial discrimination Each colour in unison Brilliant and clear Giving the world Peace and liberty

Song Production Information
This is a trance song with the lyrical theme of "love and peace for the mankind". Asking for peace and hope for every conflict that arises between ethnic groups and humans that consists of resentment, grief... these messages were fully incorporated in the song and lyrics.
I think the result is a song with a strong spiritual message... I personally like it very much.
Video Production Information
The lyrics are in French, but they include NAOKI's wonderful message of peace. During production, I was moved to tears many times by the sorrowful prayers.
As "prayer" can be done by all living things, the message was naturally made to be spoken into existence.
During production of the movie, NAOKI gave me the lyrics, written in French.
It's a very lovely poem, so please try to translate it if you're feeling confident your language skills.
