At 2 AM in the city of Rolled, Lemy Abelard seeks his next victim. He explains what First Santa Claus taught him about the world being a place full of mistakes, making it his job to punish the bad children as Fifth Pierrot. The boy then stabs a pig with his knife and later plays his flute beneath the moon in an empty circus, "turning the black to red". The Pierrot's cage is opened and he goes out into the streets. After Seventh Magician asks Pierrot to escape with her, the boy informs Santa and Magician disappears from Père Noël the next day.
Later, at night, Pierrot awaits his new prey, only to feel a pain in his chest and panic as he begins to die. Looking up, he sees his assailant, Eighth Sniper. The boy begins to grow sleepy and sees his real parents smiling at him; in his last moments, he hears Seventh Magician say that he should have escaped with her, laughing at him. Afterwards, a message is sent from First Santa Claus to her "beloved sister-in-law", saying she will wait for her at Merrigod Plateau; she signs it from "Irina Clockworker."
Kagamine Len's vocals are utilized for the duration of the song, with Megurine Luka and GUMI added for the Evils Court release. Electric guitar, drums, bass guitar, synth piano, and piano are used for instrumentals, and a radio filter is used for the bridge as well.
The song opens up with an instrumental, followed by the first verse at 0.23, while the first pre-chorus begins at 0.48, with the chorus succeeding it by 1.01. An instrumental break begins at 1.25, introducing a guitar solo, and ends at 1.50. The second verse begins immediately afterwards, followed by a second pre-chorus at 2.15, with an instrumental break at 2.31. The instrumental break changes the key of the song, but it later regains its original key at 2.42, when the bridge begins. At 3.08, the final chorus begins, and ends at 3.40. A variation of the opening instrumental plays at 3.46 and rapidly gains tempo until the song's end.

If only I wasn’t reborn
At 2 AM in a dark town, who will be the victim tonight?
Punishing bad children, that’s Pierrot’s job
From Ms. Santa he learned that the world is full of mistakes
Fifth Clown will dance in the dark night today too
The boy who played fool with a painted white face
Thrusts a silver knife in a fat pig
Tonight the chaotic Pie-Pierrot, in a circus of night without an audience
Plays on a flute for that moon, and the black goes to red
Today too, madly dancing Pie-Pierrot’s devilish cage has already been opened
The beast of prey that jumped through hoops of fire will make a wandering walk through town
With kind and dark eyes, Seventh Magician
Sweetly tempted him to escape from here
He explained to Ms. Santa that there’s a traitor
The next day the Magician’s whereabouts became unknown.
Gently stroking Pierrot’s head,
Ms. Santa’s hands, they were like…
Today is work too, Pie-Pierrot waited for prey in a shadowy back alley
Suddenly there’s a plosive sound, and the black goes to red
His chest really hurts, Pie-Pierrot doesn’t want to die! He doesn’t want to die!
Silently standing before his eyes is Eighth, Sniper
Tonight the chaotic Pie-Pierrot was very tiredly closed his eyes
Smiling inside the dream are his real mother and father
He won’t be dancing anymore, Pie-Pierrot, “That’s why I told you to escape.”
Yes, sneering so, quietly, was Seventh, Magician…
The Pierrot is a stock character in French pantomime, usually described as a naive or foolish character that becomes a victim of the other people's pranks, reflecting how Lemy was manipulated by Julia to be her personal tool; the Pierrot is also often portrayed as a clown or jester, matching Lemy's attire.
The Evils Court booklet lists the court as not touching upon Lemy's case in the future, stating that Julia being the leader of Père Noël proved Lemy was also a member.
Later in the booklet, Gammon Octo comments about the differences between Lemy and other reincarnations of Hänsel and Gretel; he then notes that the Servants were only copies of them and questions what happened to the originals.
The song was remastered and included in Evils Court, utilizing the vocals of Luka and GUMI for small portions of the song dealing with Seventh Magician and Eighth Sniper.
