There's a lot of VOCALOID songs with vague meanings and I'm bringing back this series on my blog. So, in the spirit of Halloween and spooky scary skeletons I'm going to do the song Trick and Treat by Rin and Len Kagamine
Original Japanese Romaji:
fukai fukai kiri no naka youen ni hibiku koe
oide oide kono mori no motto oku fukaku made
hayaku hayaku isogiashi de dekiru dake chikaku ni
oide oide saa tanoshii
asobi wo hajimeyou
shinamon suthikku wa mahou no sutekki
hitofuri suru dakede shiroppu ga fueru
nigasa sae wasurete amai yume no naka
tengai ni mamorarete
nemuri ni ochiru
gensou no saimin ni oboreta mama de ii
mekakushi wo hazushicha omoshiroku nai desho
ashimoto gochuui sono te wa boku ga hiku kara
sono mi wo ima sugu ni
itsu kara ka ginen no ha ga mie kakure suru
ai to iu menzaifu nado wa sonzai shinai to
mekakushi no sukima kara nozokimita rantan ga
utsushi dashita kage ni omowazu
mi no ke ga yodatta
oya oya warui ko mou omezame desu ka?
mekakushi ga toketa nara moumoku ni shiyou ka?
hora hora warainasai kawaii okao de
kegawa wo mata kabutte
doushita no sonna me de karada wo furuwasete
atatakai miruku de motenashite hoshii no?
saa naka ni ohairi koko wa totemo atatakai
mikaeri wa poketto no nakami de ii kara
choudai hayaku hayaku
nee hora ima sugu ni
nishatakuitsu no gensoku wo kanagurisute
mayakashi de motenashite amai mitsu wo sutte
choudai yokose hora ima sugu ni
English Translation (done by me btw):
In the heavy heavy fog, bewitching voices resound through
Come here, Come here. Come to a deeper place of the forest
Hurry, Hurry, Quicken your pace and come near as you can
Come here, Come here, Now, let's play and have a lot of fun
A cinnamon stick is a magic stick
Swing it only once, and the syrup would increase
Forgetting all even bitterness, you're now in a sweet dream
Under a canopy, you drop off into sleep
Just be in a hypnotic trance of illusion
If you take off the blindfold, it'll take the fun out of everything
Watch your step. I'll lead you by the hand
Put yourself into my hands at once. Come on!
I can't remember when I found you became
to show and hide the edge of suspicious in your mind
You came to realize an indulgence named "love" never existed
You peek at a lantern through the blindfold
And shadows lamp lit by it make you break out in goose bumps
Aw-oh. How naughty you are! It's too early to be awakened
If your blindfold was taken off, shall I make you blind?
Come on. Just show me your sweet smile
We'll put on fur again and put on a play again
Hey, give me that!
What's the matter? Why are you shivering and staring at us like that?
Would you like me to treat you to some hot milk?
Now, come in, it's so warm in here
All that I ask of you in return is what you have in your pocket
Give it to me at once! Hey, come on! Right now!
Flinging off a rule of choosing between two things
We treat you to tricks and suck the sweet syrup
Give it! Give us! Now! At once!
Give it to us!
Boom okay, So like this song reminds me of BDSM somewhat
and also kidnap and homicide. Perfect for Halloween!! So with the first paragraph of lyrics lets analize it.
They're basically coaxing Miku (going off of the AMV) to come and "play" with them.
Otay, second paragraph.
Basically hypnosis is all I can think of. Or using kid type stuff to coax her into feeling safe with them. You know because cinnamon is a warm and happy and welcoming kind of scent.
Otay le third
Just be in a hypnotic trance of illusion. Now didn't i say that about the second paragraph hmm... Basically what they're doing now is tricking her so they can kidnap her and blindfold her (the bdsm I was talking about.)
Otay le fourth
Basically they tricked her by indulgence like with a treat and then they tricked her. See how the title of the song comes into play?
Otay le fifth
They're keeping her there by putting on shows. (The show would be their kindness towards her.)
Otay le sixth
She's scared of them, but they coax her to come back. Then they treat her too some warm milk and trick her by stealing everything out of her pockets.
Otay le seventh
She won't give them her stuff so they're agrevated and say "Hey give that too me right now!" and "We trick you and treat you to sweet syrup" Basically saying Hey i gave you all these treats you should repay us.
