scene1「誘惑、されてみる?」(Will you try out being seduced?)/SIN || 暁Records

coverThe drama part was transcribed by ear with help of Violet and Releska!
The first scene is spoken by Renko, the second scene by Merry.
They are sitting in the bar Old Adam and talk about the forbidden fruit, Adam and Eve and the world’s secrets. Renko seems fond of the plan to take a bite out of said fruit, but Merry is still unsure…
The drama part and the song belong together, that’s why I put them in one post.

I’m not sure if Stack had “Wakasagihime’s 100 Sushi Topping Game” in mind when writing that first line, but it sure is bizarre!
As you might notice, there are references to around 4 Touhou games in this song (DDC, IN, LoLK, EoSD).


1) A rokurokubi is a monster with very long neck. (-> Sekibanki)


This world and that world, they are all completely bizarre! You could say that the moment we live in right now is not even one part of the illusion?! I arranged this song!

And thus, the amusement park’s light disappears and the present throws a black shadow over this dream.
The spinning rockinghorse won’t stop anymore.
…Why is it that even though we’re in the same dream, both of us are desolate?

This is one of the three new tracks on this album.

1) There is much discourse about how long an instant lasts, but one theory is that it lasts 1/75 seconds. (Stack also mentions this theory in her song commentary!)
2) クシャナ (ksanah) is sanscrit for “instant”.


For those living eternally, “life” means this moment, this instant. 1/75 seconds.
“The past will come around unlimitedly… So there’s no point if we don’t enjoy this moment to its fullest!”
-Stack
