Amidst the passing time, a twinkling and ephemeral sparkling
I'm a believer that keeps walking, to carve his memories of it into the world

Having dreams that no one else can, I cast aside the things I don't need
Feelings that I won't surrender reside in my heart

There is still a gap between ideals and reality, even though the shackles of sacrifice prevent my feet from moving
I can't suppress the overflowing urge, because my heart is very wanting

"Lies", "fear", "emptiness", "grief", I'm not so weak that I'm
Gripped by all these kinds of negativities, I'm a trickster who knows no solitude

Flocks of buildings stab into the night sky, look up to the sky in which I can't see any stars
I ask myself "aren't you lost?"

The city is smeared with overflowing things
It's not something that's unrealistic
At the end of the road that connects us to the future, I want to see what I've got in my hand

Closing my eyes, I float on the sea of my senses, and envision it
The day that I have my ideals within my grasp

It's accepted in this world that "righteousness" has it's limits; and withering is foolishly the same way
Something that no one else has, toward a crystallization called "myself"

Piercing through simplicity, one day it will change into reality
I want to continue to obstinately believe, it's just my faith. The absolute truth.

Amidst the passing time, a twinkling and ephemeral sparkling
I'm a believer that keeps walking, to carve his memories of it into the world

    I think that this song perfectly describes Light's feelings. Such as the dream that no one else can have, which is Light's desire to cleanse the world. And then how it says there is a gap between reality and the ideal, as in the way Light sees the world. The reality, the world full of criminals and the wicked, greatly differs from his ideal of a world where only good, kindhearted, hardworking people dwell. The believer part refers to his belief that this new world can be created, and how he wants other people to see it the same way.
    The feelings of not wanting to surrender is the reason he refuses to be caught and imprisoned. And how it says he can't suppress the urge is perfect for describing how he feels he MUST change the world. " "Lies", "fear", "emptiness", "grief", I'm not so weak that I'm
    Gripped by all these kinds of negativities", is like how Light is not affected by the horrors that most Death Note users experience
    And the closing my eyes and envisioning the time when my ideals are within my grasp fits well because Light constantly thinks about about how wonderful it will be when the world fit his ideals.

    Isn't there a part where it says "I'm a trickster who doesn't know solitude"? I could swear there is... or "I'm a trickster who knows no solitude"? I think its at the end of the song. Am I wrong?

    I assume this was something close to light's thoughts before really getting into using the death note. He's thinking to himself if he'll be lost, that if he takes this path he'll find his ideal world, and other things that i don't have enough room or time to type in. My thoughts, anyway.
