- "Even the time span of a millennium would be a blink for you."
In the Millennium Tree Forest, a girl speculates that once a sapling has taken root, she’ll have become an adult; she also wonders if she’ll be alive by the time it becomes taller. She continues to imagine that, once the sapling has grown many leaves, the world will have changed even more than it already has, wondering if her sins will have been forgiven once the sapling becomes a tree. The girl notes how, to a tree, a millennium would be the blink of an eye and she prays to the tree for an eternity of peace.
The song uses Kagamine Rin's Append voicebank, specifically Sweet. A piano and viola are used for the instrumental. The song immediately begins with a vocal track, which ends at 0.31. The second verse begins at 0.36 as the instrumental gains more accompaniment. At 1.05, the second verse ends, immediately shifting into a chorus-like verse. At 1.23, the song shifts back into a regular verse, the viola reaching a crescendo. The song ends at 1.45.
The Daughter of EvilEdit
The Daughter of Evil serves as a prequel to Blink, relating the sins that Riliane wondered if she would be forgiven for.
Regret Message serves as another prequel to Blink, showing Riliane after her repentance and shortly before coming to plant the sapling.
Tree Maiden ~Millennium Wiegenlied~Edit
Conceptualization and OriginEdit
- The song's title refers to Rin's reflection on how a thousand years would be like a blink of the eye for the tree sapling.
- According to mothy, the song was given a shorter title compared to many of his other songs because he felt it didn't need to be overly long or complicated; he clarified that the song itself still packed a lot of emotion.
