Drug of Gold is a song released by Akuno-P on February 25, 2015 in the Seven Crimes and Punishments album. The song follows the life of Prince Carlos Marlon and his tragic romance with Banica Conchita.

PlotEdit

Carlos Marlon speaks about his illness from childhood which required him to take a special medicine. Shunned by his family, he explains how he led a listless life. At fifteen, Carlos is arranged to marry a foreign nobleman's daughter for his family. Introduced to a girl as fat as a pig, Carlos then speaks of the girl's unfortunate history and her dream to travel the world, considering joining her at the time. After witnessing Banica's shocking manners at their engagement party, Carlos explains it is a result of her mother's abuse and how the engagement was voided.

Later Carlos tells of how he had heard rumors of Banica's strange appetite and, disguised as a cook, entered her employ and saw she had become beautiful but lost her humanity due to a demon contract. Carlos continues that he disappointed her by asking to take a vacation; he bemoans his tendency to keep running away, believing that he could have saved her if he accepted her at that party.

With his potentially dangerous medicine in hand, Carlos invites Banica to eat the poisoned soup with him. After they eat their last supper, Carlos explains that he's now one of her meals, the only one to die from the poison. He then narrates how, before losing consciousness, he heard Banica sigh that he ran away from her again. As Carlos is eaten by Banica, he concludes that he's not running away anymore and will be with her forever now.

CompositionEdit

The song is set with a hard rock flair, incorporating electic guitar, bass guitar, drums, piano, and the flute. The song immediately begins with the first verse by 0.04. The song heads into a variation of the verse at 0.25, but resumes the normal melody shortly after 0.37. Another variation appears at 1.00, and gradually gains accompaniment from the other instruments. The second verse begins at 1.34, with a variation appearing at 1.57. A brief instrumental refrain begins afterwards, and lasts until 2.12.

The next verse repeats the same structure as the ones that preceded it, however, a pre-chorus begins at 2.45. The chorus begins at 3.09, and lasts until 3.30. Another verse begins afterwards, with a variation at 3.55, accompanied by heavy electric guitar. At 4.05, another instrumental break begins, with a guitar solo. Another pre-chorus begins at 4.30, preceding the second chorus at 4.52. The song ends at 5:15.

LyricsEdit

もしも 逃げなかったならば

病弱な身体 子供の頃から生死をさまよっては
家に伝わる秘薬を飲み続けてた日常
必要な事もろくに出来ない ただの役立たずだと
家族に疎まれ次第に歪んでた心

希望なんてどこにもなかった
ただ生き続けるだけの日々

15歳の時 唐突に組まれた縁談の話
相手は他国の落ちぶれた貴族の娘
お互いの意思などまるで無視の ただ家柄のために
自分が道具だと改めて理解をした

豚のように太った少女
それが彼女との出会いだった

彼女もやはり一人ぼっちで少女時代を過ごしたそうだ
母は亡くなり父は心を病んで家は没落した
「いつか世界中を旅したい」
それが彼女の夢だという
二人で行くのも悪くないなと思った

客人を招いて開かられた婚約の為のパーテイ
そこで彼女の心の闇を知ることになった
出された料理を乞食のように貪り食らう彼女
「残したら怒られる」呟いていた言葉

亡き母から受けてた虐待
婚約は破談になった

時が経った時耳に届いた彼女に関する噂
「ゲテモノを食らう悪食娘になった」と
顔を変えてコックを装い彼女に雇われた
そこにいたのは見違えるほど美しくなった女

禁じられた悪魔との契約
彼女はもう人でなくなっていた

異常な料理作り続ける日々 思わず口をついて出た言葉
「そろそろお暇をもらえませんか?」失望する彼女
わかっている自分はいつだって逃げてばかりの負け犬だと
またこうして彼女から逃げようとしてる

あのパーティの日に君を受け入れることができたら
君を救う事も出来たかもしれない
未だに手放せぬ薬 金の粉末入りの小瓶
決意と共に握りしめた

子供の頃から飲み続けてきた秘伝の薬
扱いを間違えば毒にもなる薬
「たまには共に食事をしましょう」そう彼女を誘い
二人分のスープ どちらにも毒を入れた

二人で逝くのも悪くないだろ?
さあ これが僕らの最後の晩餐だ

——そして今の僕は 食卓に並べられた料理の一つ
彼女に毒は効かなかった
死んだのは僕だけ
意識を失う直前 彼女はポツリとこう言ったんだ
「あなたはまた逃げたのよ 私を置いて」

君のための料理になって僕は君の胃の中へと
そして僕は君の血となり肉となる
もう僕が君から逃げることはないだろう

永遠に君と共に

If only I hadn’t run away

With a weak constitutioned body, wandering between life and death since childhood
An everyday where I continued drinking a secret medicine passed down in my family
I couldn’t do what they needed very well; Shunned by my family
As being merely useless, my heart was gradually warped

I didn’t have any hope anywhere
They were days of just continuing to live

When I was 15 suddenly there was talk of a marriage alliance
My partner was the daughter of a disgraced nobleman from a foreign country
Almost ignoring such as their mutual reasons, once again I understood
I myself was just a means for a good pedigree

A girl who was fat like a pig
That was my meeting with her

It seemed she, too, spent her girlhood all alone
Her mother dead, her father with a sick heart, and her home fallen to ruin
“Someday I want to travel around the world”
She said that was her dream

I thought going together wouldn’t be so bad

They invited guests and held a party for the engagement
It was there I came to know the darkness in her heart
Greedily devouring the food that was brought out like a beggar,
She murmured the words, “If anything’s left behind, I’ll be scolded”

The abuse she received from her late mother
The engagement was broken off

When time passed, gossip concerning her reached my ears;
“She’s become the Evil Food Eater, devourer of gross foods”
I changed my face, disguised myself as a cook and was employed by her
In there was a woman who had become so beautiful I didn’t recognize her

A contract with a forbidden demon
She wasn’t human anymore

In those days I continue making strange meals, unintentionally these words came from my mouth
“Before long might I take a vacation?” Disappointing her
I know that I’ve always been a dog running away with his tail between his legs
And again in this way I’m trying to run from her

If I had been able to accept you the day of that party,
Perhaps I could have also saved you
This medicine I can’t yet part with, a bottle of fine gold powder
I grasp it, along with my determination

This secret medicine I’ve been drinking since my childhood
A medicine that becomes a poison if the dosage isn’t right
“Let’s eat together on this occasion” I invited of her,
And put the poison into two servings of soup

Going together won’t be so bad, right?
Come, this is our last supper

–And now I’m one of the meals lined up on the dinner table
The poison didn’t work on her
I was the only one who died

Just before I lost consciousness she said with a sigh,
“You’ve run away again, leaving me”

Having become cuisine for you I’m headed to your stomach
And so I’ll become your blood, I’ll become your flesh
I won’t be escaping from you anymore will I?

I’ll be with you forever
