"Only one can become Queen."
―Elluka Chirclatia[src]

Ma Survival is a song released by Akuno-P on August 12, 2013 in the Original Sin Story -Act 2- album and later uploaded with a PV on May 4, 2016. It is the sixth song in the Original Sin Story.

PlotEdit

Four very different women gather before a temple in Levianta: Irina Clockworker, Milky Eights, Ly Li, and Elluka Chirclatia. With the ongoing need for a "Mother" to birth the "Children of God" and that only one of them could become the "Mother" and ruler of Levianta, the four become cruel and begin secretly fighting each other in a game of survival as well as distrusting everyone.

Ly is later said to have accidentally fallen off a cliff, though that may not have been the truth. As time goes on, the women left become increasingly cynical and resentful. Milky is said to have killed herself from heartache, though that was definitely not the truth.

Later, Irina approaches Elluka and asks that they stop fighting, telling her sister-in-law that she had her and Kiril's support to win the competition. After Elluka thanks Irina and promises to protect her, the girl stabs her in the back, tears in her eyes. After killing Elluka, Irina is told that she, the three women's murderer, was selected to become the new Ma. As she angelically smiles at the temple's altar, Kiril, however, is targeting her with a knife.

CompositionEdit

The song utilizes the voicebanks Megurine Luka, Nekomura Iroha, Lily, and SF-A2 miki with the VOCALOID2 program, each singing in alteration throughout the song with Iroha singing the ending verses. The song also makes use of a radio filter. Notable instruments include a piano, electric guitar, and synth drums as well as a sound effect for a stabbing. 

The song begins with piano keys until the main instrumentals at 0.12, which give way to the first verse at 0.38. Iroha, Lily, miki, and Luka sing in alternation until a musical break from 0.56 to 1.10, when miki and Luka sing the second verse. A pre-chorus is sung by Lily from 1.31 to 1.42, and the chorus begins immediately after. A second instrumental break begins at 2.03, followed by a third verse.

The verse switches from miki, to Lily, Iroha, and finally Luka, and ends at 2.33, preceding the third pre-chorus. The third chorus starts at 2.45, followed by a bridge beginning at 3.07. The bridge begins as an instrumental, but vocals from Iroha are heard late before switching to Luka. The bridge drops to only a piano melody by 4.00. The sound of stabbing is heard at 4.12, followed by a quickened version of the opening instrumental. By 4.19, a single verse is sung by Iroha followed by the at 4.54, with a variation of the opening instrumental beginning at 5.19. The song ends at 5.45.

LyricsEdit

神の子供は産まれない
神の子供は見つからない
誰かが『母』に ならねばならぬ
神の子供を産まねばならぬ

神殿に集う乙女たち
生まれも境遇も違う四人
『母』になれるのはたった一人
『女王』になれるのはたった一人

欲望が聖女たちを
悪魔に変える
武器を手にして
今まさに始まる
殺し合い

始動するサバイバル
疑心暗鬼が友愛情に勝る
あなたの後ろで笑うのは
本当に仲間ですか?

「昨日あの子が死んだ
崖から足を滑らせ転げ落ちた」
それはもしかしたら嘘かも

最後に生き残るのは誰だ?

色に溺れた娼婦に
驕り高ぶる女貴族
兄に恋する嫉妬深き少女
そしてその兄の婚約者

より強き才能のみが
全てを得る
そして心に沸きおこる
とめどない憎しみ

終わらないサバイバル
現実主義が性善論に勝る
私の命を狙うのは
本当に敵なのかな?

「あの子が首を吊った
醜い争いに心を痛めた」
そんなの絶対に嘘だよ

最後に生き残るのは誰だ?

お義姉様
もう止めましょう
残る候補者も
私たちだけ
こんなの無意味だわ
女王には
お義姉様がなればいいわ
兄が選んだあなただもの

ありがとうイリーナ
大丈夫あなたを
死なせはしない
守ってあげるから

血の花を背中に咲かせ
義姉はその場に崩れ落ちる
今際の際に見たものは
泣き叫ぶ義妹の顔

「三人を手にかけた
罪深き少女よ
お前が新たな
『Ma』に選ばれた」

祭壇に立つ少女
微笑む天使のような悪魔
彼女が子を宿したならば
それで平穏は訪れる

されどもサバイバルは
永遠に終わることは ないのだろう
新たな女王を狙った
刃がどこかで煌めいた

The children of god aren’t born
The children of god aren’t found
While someone must become “mother”
While the children of god must be born

The maidens gathered in the temple
Four girls with different birthplaces and backgrounds
Only one can become “mother”
Only one can become “queen”

Desire changes these holy women
Into fiends
They take weapons in their hands,
Now surely begins
Mutual slaughter

Survival activates
Paranoia outweighs feelings of friendship
Is the one laughing behind you
Really a friend?
 
“She died yesterday
Her feet slipped and she fell from a cliff”
Perhaps that is a lie

Who will survive in the end?

A prostitute drowned in sensuality
A noblewoman haughty with arrogance
A jealous girl in love with her brother
And that brother’s fiancée

Only the one with the strongest talents
Will get everything
And endless hatred
Wells up in their hearts

Unending survival
The rules of reality outweigh the idea of intrinsic goodness
Is the one aiming at my life
Really an enemy?

“She hanged herself
Heart afflicted by this ugly conflict”
Such a thing is absolutely a lie

Who will survive in the end ?

Dear sister-in-law,
Let’s stop this already
The remaining candidates
Are just us
This is meaningless
As for being queen
It should be you, dear sister-in-law
You who was chosen by my brother

Thank you, Irina
You’re safe
I won’t let you die
I’ll protect you

Flowers of blood bloom from her back
Sister-in-law fell on the spot
What she saw in her dying moment
Was the wailing face of her young sister-in-law

“Sinful girl who by her hands
Ended three people,
You have been selected
As the new ‘Ma’ ”

The girl standing at the altar
A demon smiling like an angel
If she conceived the children
With that, peace would come

Nevertheless, survival
Will never be over, right?
The sword that aimed at the new queen
Gleamed somewhere

Queen Merry-Go-Round
Foretold the world’s destruction

What they needed to avert that was
The “Twins of God” who would be representatives of the divine

And
The “Ma”, a woman who would be their mother

♫ Ma Survival / Levianta Four Ladys

Four women were selected
As subject candidates for the 7th Project “Ma”

But only one would be able
To become the “Ma” who would birth the Twins of God

They decided to choose the final “Ma” candidate
Upon even closer scrutiny by the senate

Greed, Lust

Ostentation, Surfeit

Dejection, Wrath

Sloth, Pride

♫ Ma Survival / Levianta Four Ladys

A single scientist
Whispered to someone:

“If the other three disappeared—

–You would be ‘Ma’.”

♫ Clockwork Requiem / Clockworker

Irina Clockworker becoming Queen
Didn’t even last half a year.
Before she could give birth to the Twins of God
The country had completely sunken into a sea of fire.

Elluka’s dead body was taken away by her fiance
And its whereabouts thereafter are uncertain.
As a digression, a number of centuries afterwards
A sorceress carrying the name of “Elluka”
Ended up appearing in places of historic significance.

Two years before Milky was murdered
She secretly gave birth to a child with Pale.
Their descendant ended up
Creating a world-leading Foundation organization.

After the country’s collapse, what was left of the Li family
Headed to the east.
There they built up a vast kingdom,
But it’s said that country fell to ruin as well several centuries later.
