Your mother will say it. "Don't go outside like that!"
You classmates will jeer. "Can't you be more normal?"
Your boyfriend will lament. "It's embarrassing to walk along
the street with you."
But you've already met with it.
The thing you have desired at great lengths.
And you already know it.
The location of your store, where you are free to go.
Gothic & Lolita ---- It's not a style, but fate.
Gothic & Lolita ---- Not a fad, but a raison de etre.
Mama wa iimasu. Sonna okashina kakko o shite
soto ni denaide to.
Kyuuyuu wa waraimasu. Motto nachuraru ni narina yo to.
Koibito wa nagekimasu. Issho ni michi o aruku no ga hazukashii
Demo de-atte shimatta no desu.

Goshikku & roriitaa ---- sore wa sutairu ja naku shokumei.
Goshikku & roriitaa ---- sore wa de wa naku sonzai riyuu.
The pious orthodox Jews wear their black yamachas and cloaks,
Wear their sideburns long to live their lives daily in prayer
As you alone must wear these western clothes as proof of your creed
In entrusting your body to a creed of heresy you hesitated a while,
But you need draw out only a little courage.
Since you now know what is most important to you.

So tie on your head dress above a corsett constrained body,
Train a panie under your skirt and then, if you stand before the mirror,
Will a unicorn appear to bestow a kiss of blessing upon your cheek.
This is what he will say:
Heddodoresu o atama ni tsuke, korusetto
de bodi o shimetsuke,
Sukaato no naka ni panie o shikonde, kagami no mae ni tateba
Ikakkujuu ga araware, kimi no hoho ni shukufuku no seppun o
Ikakkujuu wa iimasu.
These are the battle clothes of the precious ones, the few chosen
to fight the many
who lack the power to see dreams.
They will see, and will brand you as an escapee who has rejected the
reality of becoming an adult.
But the wished for world of the ones exists only outside of reality.
You knod your head decisively*.
An existance in reality is truly loathesome to you.
Kore wa anata no sentoufuku, yumemiru chikara

Minna, anata ni otona ni naru koto o kyohi shita genjitsu touhisha

Kimi wa kokkuri unazukimasu.
Mou, genjistu ni ikiru no wa unzari na no desu.
So you will live in eternity as a representitive from a world of
Gothic and Lolita --- those who have been chosen to die as martyrs
Gothic and Lolita --- the descendants of devils and angels who hide
Kimi wa eien no inochi o mochi gensou no
kuni no juunin to shite ikiru no desu.
Goshikku & Loliita --- sore wa bi ni junjiru kakugo o motta
Goshikku & Lolita --- sore wa hane o kakushi motsu akuma

*kokkuri is more like "with the self-assured
nature of a child." I think it adds an extremely nice touch.
Regardless of my views towards the poem's message, the composer really
is quite good. By the way, he's the really skinny guy that's always
somewhere in the Glub. In GlubV he goes on a mock date with a lolita,
yeah, that guy.
