己が剣の射す空へ Take Off!!
己が剣の射す空へ Fly Away!!
Aku no soldier tsuranuite
I slash through the evil soldiers
Entrusting my back to my partner
Flap your wings, Phoenix
With my shining sword, I take off to the skies!
I cleave up lurking soldiers
If my lone rival challenges me
My time has come to act
With my shining sword, I fly away to the skies!

- Stylistically, the lyrics to the song feature English words mixed with Japanese writing, which is often done in Japanese media to set a trendy and modern tone. In particular, the word 宿敵 (shukuteki), meaning "old enemy" or "nemesis", is read as the English word "rival".
