"Alumina" is a song written and performed by Japanese rock band Nightmare. The song was featured with the song the WORLD on the single album The WORLD/Alumina and used as the first ending theme for the acclaimed anime series Death Note, based off of the manga of the same name. It reflects the views and ideas of the show's villain protagonist Light Yagami, as he believes in the rebirth of the world and his accession into a messiah.

Lyrics

Nagareru toki no naka matataku
Setsuna teki kirameki wo
Kono yo no kioku ni kizamu tame
Aruki tsuzukeru believer

Dare ni mo mirenai yume wo mite
Iranai mono wa subete suteta
Yuzurenai omoi kono mune ni yadoshite

Mada riaru idearu no hazama ni ite
Gisei no kaze ni ashi wo torarete mo
Afureru shoudou wo osae kirenai
Tsuyoku motomeru kokoro ga aru kara

"Itsuwari" "osore" "kyoshoku" "urei"
Samazama na negatibu ni
Torawareru hodo yowaku wa nai
Kodoku mo shiranu trickster

Yozora wo tsukisasu biru no mure
Hoshi nado mienai sora miage
"mayoi wa nai ka" to jibun ni toikakeru

Kono machi juu afureru mono ni mamire
Utsutsu wo nukatsu you na koto wa nai
Asu e to tsunagaru michi no hate de
Kono te ni tsukamu mono wo mitai kara

Mabuta wo toji ishiki no umi ni ukande
omoi egaku risou wo te ni suru sono toki wo

Kagiri aru "sei" wo kono yo ni uke
Kare yuku dake wa oroka ni hitoshii
Hoka no dare mo ga mochienai mono
"jibun jishin" to iu na no kesshou e

Kirei goto wo tsukitoosu koto
Itsuka makoto e kawaru
Katakuna ni shinji tsuzuketai
It's just my faith, the absolute truth...

Nagareru toki no naka matataku
Setsuna teki kirameki wo
Kono yo no kioku ni kizamu tame
Aruki tsuzukeru believer

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 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 its 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,
Atwinkling and ephemeral sparkling
I'm a believer that keeps walking
To carve his memories of it into the world

Dare ni mo mirenai yume wo mite
Iranai mono wa subete suteta
Yuzurenai omoi kono mune ni yadoshite

Mada riaru idearu no hazama ni ite
Gisei no kaze ni ashi wo torarete mo
Afureru shoudou wo osae kirenai
Tsuyoku motomeru kokoro ga aru kara

"Itsuwari" "osore" "kyoshoku" "urei"
Samazama na negatibu ni
Torawareru hodo yowaku wa nai
Kodoku mo shiranu trickster

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 solitude
