―Master of the Court[src]

Master of the Court is a song released by Akuno-P on August 13, 2011 in the Evils Court album. It is part of the Four Endings Series, serving as the leitmotif of the Master of the Court.

PlotEdit

The story starts in Evil's Theater as the Master of the Court states that those who get through the Evil's Forest, as well as elude the Graveyard, will be sentenced to Hell in the theater's court. In the song, the Master of the Court explains how she came alive from the gears of the clocktower and inherited her father's will, with the court opening its doors soon. She expresses doubt about sentencing people to Hell as a means to get to "Utopia", lacking a conscience and the ability to understand the morality of her actions. 

Later in the song, while singing her lullaby, the Gardener asserts that the end was near. The Master of the Court is unsure to believe his view or Ma's, and decides to continue to swing her hammer regardless. Feeling Irregular in her womb, she assures him that his time will come, telling him to sleep with her lullaby. Once more, she asks her father if what she is doing is the way of achieving "Utopia". Asking again for his instruction, the Master of the Court weakly demands her father help her.

CompositionEdit

Hatsune Miku's VOCALOID2 voicebank is used for duration of the song. Piano, bass guitar, electric guitar, and drums are used prolifically.

The song begins with an opening instrumental, which lasts until 0.33 when the first verse begins. At 0.58, the first pre-chorus begins, followed by the first chorus at 1.24. At 1.51, the same instrumental begins again, and at 2.02, the second verse begins, followed by the second pre-chorus at 2.28. The second chorus is sung at 2.54. A variation of the instrumental starts at 3.20, followed by a pre-chorus at 3.31. The final chorus begins at 3.46, which is repeated until 4.39. Afterwards, a variation of the chorus' instrumental plays. At 5.16, a piano melody is played until the song's end.

LyricsEdit

森を抜け 墓場から追われ
辿りつくだろう 古い映画館
その場所で 貴方は裁かれ
罪を得るだろう 最後の審判

時計塔で廻る歯車
人形(ドール)は父の遺志を継いだ
そうよ私が新たな法廷の主
今 開かれる 冥界の門

教えてよmy father
これが正しい選択でしょうか?
心を持たぬ私にはわからないの
教えてよmy father
全員地獄送りでいいんですか?
命を持たぬ私にはわからない

語られぬ 唄もあとわずか
終わりは近いと 庭師は呟く
正しいのは 彼か魔道師(Ma)か
わからないまま 槌を叩いている

無機質な胎内に宿る
毒(イレギュラー)が身を震わす
いい子ね あなたの役目はこれからだから
今は子守唄で 眠っていなさい

教えてよmy father
これが正しい運命でしょうか?
心を持たぬ私にはわからないの
教えてよmy father
理想郷(ユートピア)はこれでできるんですか?
命を持たぬ私にはわからない

そうよ私が新たな法廷の主
今 開かれる 冥界の門

教えてよmy father
これが正しい選択でしょうか?
心を持たぬ私にはわからないの
教えてよmy father
全員地獄送りでいいんですか?
命を持たぬ私にはわからない

教えてよmy father
これが正しい運命でしょうか?
心を持たぬ私にはわからないの
教えてよmy father
理想郷(ユートピア)はこれでできるんですか?
命を持たぬ私にはわからない

教えてよmy father

助けてよmy father

Surpass the forest, be chased from the graveyard
You’ll probably make it to an old theater
In that place you’ll be judged
You’ll likely get a sin in this final trial

From the turning gear in the clocktower
The doll inherited her father’s dying wish
Yes, I am the new Master of the Court
Now the gates of the Hellish Yard will be opened

Explain to me, my father
This is the correct choice isn’t it?
Without having a heart, I don’t understand
Explain to me, my father
Should I see all of them off to hell?
Without having life, I don’t understand

The gardener murmurs that in just a little while from now
The song that can’t be recited’s end is also close
If it’s him or MA that’s correct
Without knowing that, I am striking this mallet

Dwelling in my inhuman womb,
Irregular makes my body tremble
Dear child, your role is after this, so
Sleep now with this lullaby

Explain to me, my father
This is the correct fate isn’t it?
Without having a heart, I don’t understand
Explain to me, my father
Utopia will be made with this, won’t it?
Without having life, I don’t understand

Yes, I am the new Master of the Court
Now the gates of the Hellish Yard will be opened

Explain to me, my father
This is the correct choice isn’t it?
Without having a heart, I don’t understand
Explain to me, my father
Should I see all of them off to hell?
Without having life, I don’t understand

Explain to me, my father
This is the correct fate isn’t it?
Without having a heart, I don’t understand
Explain to me, my father
Utopia will be made with this, won’t it?
Without having life, I don’t understand

Explain to me, my father

Help me, my father

TriviaEdit

Conceptualization and OriginEdit

  • The song's English title, "Successor of the court", refers to her succeeding Gallerian, taking his mission and title upon herself to attempt reuniting with him. 

CuriositiesEdit

  • In Evils Court, the song is preceded by an instrumental titled "5 Minutes before Court", leading into the main song; combined with the instrumental, the song begins "court" after 5 minutes, when the Doll makes her final decision just before the final chorus.
  • The Evils Court booklet lists that none were "accused", stating that the file was simply the Director Doll's monologue regarding the role she bears.[1]
  • Later in the booklet, Gammon comments how Gear transferred the powers of the Marlon Spoon through the clock tower to heal her, giving her the vessels' powers; however, he notes she uses it meaninglessly in imitation of Gallerian, becoming a tool to sentence visitors to death.[2]
