Neon Genesis Evangelion Theme - Cruel Angel's Thesis Lyrics
Soundtrack Artists - A Cruel Angel's Thesis Lyrics | MetroLyrics
Like an angel who has forsaken sympathy Rise up, young boy, and make yourself a legend! Blue skies and beckoning winds Are trying to open the door of your heart But you're gazing at me as if you cannot see You just stand there, smiling vacantly Your eyes hold such innocence You're blind to the fate that will soon come to pass But it's summoning you with a touch like a sigh You seek it without knowing why But, someday, I know that you will be awakened And your eyes will finally see These wings on your back are just waiting to guide you The future will soon set you free! This cruel thesis, a spiteful angel's litany Will soon soar from the window of your destiny White-hot pathos, a desecrated symphony Stay true to this and don't betray your memory! Come now, reach out, you must embrace reality!
A Cruel Angel's Thesis
A blue wind is now knocking at the door to your heart, and yet you are merely gazing at me and smiling. Something gently touching-- you're so intent on seeking it out, that you can't even see your fate yet, with such innocent eyes. But someday I think you'll find out that what's on your back are wings that are for heading for the far-off future.
According to the liner notes to the album Refrain of Evangelion , director Hideaki Anno had originally wanted to use a piece of classical music as the opening, [b] but due to concern that this might confuse the anime viewership, a decision was made to use a more upbeat J-pop song instead. She had been given specific instructions by the producer to make the wording sophisticated and "philosophical". She reveals she got inspiration for the title from the manga A Cruel God Reigns. The original song included a male chorus, which was cut at director Hideaki Anno's request in order to "emphasize maternal affection".
