―Servants[src]

Capriccio Farce is a song released by Akuno-P on August 13, 2011 in the Evils Court album and later uploaded with a PV on October 29 the same year. It is the seventh song in the Clockwork Lullaby Series, depicting a meeting between the inhabitants of Evil's Theater.

PlotEdit

The awakened vessels of sin all meet in a ruined theater to start a trial. The Master of the Court leads the trial, discussing that they need to find the missing vessel of sin, and asks Ma for its location. Ma states she doesn't know its whereabouts either, but she fears that it might be in "that girl's hand". Gear believes that there will be nothing left after the vessels are united, and in response the Master of the Graveyard taunts him that he is powerless to do anything.

Next, the Master of the Court instructs Gammon Octo to recount the events that led him to the forest. He mentions that he entered the forest looking for a sword, in order to undo a terrible curse on his body, but was captured by the Master of the Graveyard and her servants. The Master of the Court trials him and sentences him to death, but he was saved by the Waiter who wanted him for chores, and became the "Gardener". It is mentioned how a lonely man, before he died, constructed this theater in the forest. However, it is unknown if the utopia he dreamed of for himself and his daughter will succeed.

CompositionEdit

The song utilizes the voicebanks of Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin and Len Act2, Camui Gackpo, Megurine Luka, and GUMI on the VOCALOID2 program. Additionally, MEIKO and KAITO are utilized with the VOCALOID program. Synth drums, synth piano, piano, and synth guitar are used prolifically.

The final chorus begins at 4.23, starting with MEIKO, then KAITO, Miku, Rin, Len, Gackpo, Luka, and finally Gumi. The final tagline is sung by Rin and Len at 4.53.

LyricsEdit

空の被告席 ガラクタばかりの傍聴席
さあ始めよう 裁判という茶番を

master of the court
「神の命により探し求める器も残るは
あと一つだけ その在りかをもしも知
るのならばそれを証言なさい
「時の魔導師」よ」

Ma
「時を超え姿を変え主を変えそれは
すでに舞台に登場している されど
今の在処は我も知らず おそらくは
あの娘の手の中に」

servants
「探せ 探せ アイツを探せ
右か左かあるいは下か
全てのカギを握ってる
「冥界の主」を探せ」

gear
「いつまでこの茶番を 続けるのか
その先には何もない」

master of the graveyard
「罠に落ちたアダムの魂よ
お前の成せる事などもう何もない」

揺らぐ天秤 乱れた脚本(シナリオ)
罪に汚れた器達 各々の歌を勝手に
奏でる不協和音の狂想曲(カプリシオ)
物語は既に神と悪魔の手を離れて独
り歩き彼らがもしもこの地にいたな
らこう言って嘆くだろう

本当に恐ろしいのは
人間の欲望だった

master of the court
「少し情報を整理しましょう 悪魔の血
を引く卑し男よ 許可してあげるので
語りなさいお前がこの森に来た時の
事を」

gardener
「我の身に宿る忌まわしき呪い それを
解く為に必要となる 先祖由来の険を求
めて 一人でこの森にやってきた」

(殺せ 食らえ 無理なら 捕まえろ
森に入った不届き者を)
(裁け裁け とにかく裁け
開廷!判決!死刑!)

gardener
「捕らえられ覚悟を決めた時に
気まぐれ少女が手を差し伸べた」

waiter
「ちょうど雑用係が欲しかったの」

gardener
「そして我は「庭師」になった」

「時の魔導師」「呪われた庭師」
目覚めぬ器の代用品
各々の野望胸に秘める
不穏分子の侵入者(インベーダー)

「人形館長」「墓場の主」
「歯車」「待つ者」「冥界の主」
全ての終わりが訪れた時
笑っているのは誰なのか?

るりらるりらるりるりら
響くイレギュラーの鼓動

友情 トラウマ 正義 幻覚
希望 破滅 夢 欲 愛 死
全てを溶かして廻り続ける
ぜんまい仕掛けの子守唄
孤独な男がその死の間際
作りあげた映画館
彼が望んでいた理想郷(ユートピア)は
完成するのだろうか?

さあ見届けよう 人生という茶番を

An empty defendant’s seat, a visitor’s gallery with nothing but junk
Come, let’s begin this farce called a trial

Only one of the vessels
That we’re seeking out by orders of god remains
If it’s the case you know its whereabouts
Make your testimony, “Sorceress of Time”

Transcending time, changing forms, changing masters
It’s already making its debut on stage
Even so, not knowing the whereabouts myself right now,
I fear it’s likely that it’s in her hands

Search, search, search for that bitch
Left, right, or down
She who holds all the keys
Search for “The Master of the Hellish Yard”

How long is this farce going to continue?
There is nothing after that

Soul of Adam who fell in the trap
There’s nothing you can accomplish anymore

Swinging scales, a disordered scenario, vessels sullied in sin
Each playing their song their own way, a discordant capriccio
The story has already let go of the hands of demons and gods and walks alone
If they were in this place, they would probably make this lament:

What was truly terrifying
Was the desire of humanity

Let’s sort what few facts we have
Lowly man descended from a demon
I’ll give you permission, so tell us
Of the time you came to this forest

There is an unpleasant curse dwelling in my body
Seeking my original ancestor’s sword
That has become necessary to solve this,
I arrived at this forest alone

Kill him, eat him, if we can’t, arrest him
This insolent jackass who entered the forest
Judge, judge, at any rate judge him
Trial! Sentence! Death!

When I resolved myself after I was arrested
The fickle girl extended her hand

I wanted a charge right for doing chores
And so I became “The Gardener”

“Sorceress of Time” “Cursed Gardener”
Substitutes for the unawakened vessels
Each keeping their goals close to the chest
Unsettling invaders

“The Director Doll”, “Master of the Graveyard”
“Gear”, “The Waiter” “Master of the Hellish Yard”
When the end of everything arrives
Who will be laughing, I wonder?

Lu li la lu li la lu li lu li la
The resounding beat of Irregular

Friendship, trauma, justice, illusion
Hope, destruction, dreams, greed, love, death
All of it continues to melt and turn
The Clockwork Lullaby
Just before the solitary man’s death
He constructed a theater
Will the utopia he wished for
Be completed?

Come, let’s see with our own eyes
This farce called life

TriviaEdit

Conceptualization and OriginEdit

  • The song's title refers to the Director Doll's whimsical and unnecessary treatment of their meeting as a "trial". 
  • The song's title is derived from the word capriccio, meaning "whim" in Italian; it was also the name of the last opera composed by Richard Strauss, which similarly featured ten characters.
  • In theater, the farce is a genre of comedy that commonly includes improbable plot situations and exaggerated characters; the term also refers to a mockery of an event.
  • The song's PV is a reference to the interface of the Ace Attorney games, featuring dialogue boxes and profiles for the characters.

CuriositiesEdit

  • The Evils Court booklet announces the beginning of the farcical trial, quoting the first lyrics in the song.[1]
  • Later in the booklet, Gammon expresses frustration at not just having an ordinary meeting, although resists complaining to avoid angering the Master of the Court.[2]
  • In the PV, each character is accompanied by a related object in the background.
  • The song's final verse is sung by the characters in order of their representative Vocaloids' release dates.
  • In Evils Court, the song is preceded by an instrumental titled "5 Minutes Before Court", utilizing a similar tune to Capriccio Farce, albeit much slower and with different instruments.
