Fullmetal Alchemist – Brother (Bratja) lyrics

Prosti menya, mladshiy brat!
Ya tak pred toboy vinovat.
Pyitatsya vernut' nyelzya
Togo, chto vzyala zyemlya
.

Kto znayet zakon Byitiya,
Pomog byi mne nayti otvet.
Zhestoko oshibsya ya;
Ot smerti lekarstva nyet.

Milaya mama! Nyezhnaya!
Myi tak lyubili tebya.
No vse nashi silyi
Potrachenyi byili zrya.

Tebya soblaznil ya
Prekrasnoy nadezhdoy
Vernut' nash semeynyiy ochag.
Moy brat, ya vo vsem vinovat.

Nye plach', nye pechal'sya, starshiy brat!
Nye tyi odin vinovat.
Doroga you nas odna,
Iskupim vinu do dna.

Mnye nye v chem tebya upreknut'.
I ya nye obihen nichut'.
Tyazhek, nash gryekh
Khotet' byit' silneye vsekh.

Milaya mama! Nyezhnaya!
Myi tak lyubili tebya.
No vse nashi silyi
Potrachenyi byili zrya.

Ya sam soblaznilsya
Prekprasnoy nadezhdoy
Vernut' nash semeinyiy ochag.
Ya sam vo vsem vinovat.

No chto zhe nam delat', kak byit'?
Kak vse ispravit', zyabyit'?
Pyitat'sya vernut' nyel'zhya,
Togo, chto vzyala zyemlya.

[English Translation:]

Forgive me, little brother
I am so sorry before you.
It's forbidden to try to return
One taken by the earth.

The one who knows the law of existence
Could help me to find the answer.
I was very mistaken
There's no cure for death.

Dear Mom, sweet Mom!
We loved you so much.
But all our efforts
Unfortunately were in vain.

I tempted you
With the wonderful hope
Of returning our home.
My brother, it's all my fault
.

Don't cry, don't be sad, big brother.
You're not the only guilty one.
There's only one road before us,
We will purge our sins completely.

I cannot blame you,
I am not hurt at all.
Well, we sinned
By wanting to be stronger than everyone else
.

Dear Mom, sweet Mom!
We loved you so much.
But all our efforts
Unfortunately were in vain.

I was tempted
With the wonderful hope
Of returning our home.
I'm guilty for all of it.

But what should we do, how should we be?
How to fix everything, to forget?
It's forbidden to try to return
One taken by the earth.

    The both al and edward are admitting to be selfish enough to gain strength, but they did not think about the effects of doing alchemy. Its like the saying you get what you want in exchange for something that is beloved for you. In the middle they are telling their mother that they are sorry and because they love her so much they wanted her to come back to life to be with them. In the end they admit that both of them have part of a fault in this situation and that they will begin and eventually find a solution for everything to be almost back to normal.

    It is a really sad song if you know the story behind it. This is the OST for "The Fullmetal Alchemist", an anime adapted from a manga by the same title. Ed, the older brother, felt guilty and was always afraid if Al, his brother, blamed him. During their attempt to try to revive their mother via human transmutation, Ed lost his left leg while Al lost his entire body. Ed was brought to see 'The Truth'. In desperation and self-blame, Ed did a soul transmutation to save what was left of his brother - his soul. Nevertheless, humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain anything, something of equal value must be lost. That is Alchemy's First Law of Equivalent Exchange. In order to bring Al's soul back to the living word, Ed sacrificed his right arm. Al regained consciousness, but his body is merely a metal armor. Filled with guilt for his brother's body, Ed tried to do all he could do to return to their original selves. The story goes on to tell about their past, present, and future. This song depicts perfectly their inner struggle as they try to move on from their past, to live in the present, and hope for a better future.
