- "The name of I, standing at the top, is Alice Merry-Go-Round."
- ―Maria Moonlit[src]
A woman narrates how her "parents" sleep in the Sin in a large temple, in a country governing the "third world." Ruling the country she, Alice Merry-Go-Round, is a prophet "Queen of the glass," a glass which reflects the future. She then explains that this is actually false; wanting to meet with her "mother" and "father", she asks them how to turn gods into humans and receives their reply in the bottle: to create vessels for them in a way similar to how she created Adam. Making a false prediction of the future to this end, Alice warps history. Despite this, she expresses unease and asks her parents for assurance she isn't being manipulated by them. Not having a heart or life, she doesn't understand if this is the correct choice.
Hatsune Miku Append's "Solid" voicebank is used for the piece, with a brief line sung by Kagamine Rin and Len. The song primarily uses electric and bass guitars, violas, and a harpsichord. Primarily a rock song, the instrumentation is set to a high-energy drum beat. The song opens with a guitar riff and viola melody, backed by the drums. By 0.13, the song heads into its main instrumental sequence, followed by the vocals at 0.27. For three seconds, only a guitar is heard against Miku's vocals, but returns to the normal instrumental at 0.30. At 0.54, the song ascends into the pre-chorus, accompanied by the harpsichord, preceding the chorus beginning at 1.07.
The chorus finishes at 1.33, reverting to the main instrumental until 1.47, when the second verse begins. This time, the only instrumentation is the harpsichord, until 1.57, at which the rest of the instrumental kicks in. By 2.15, the song reaches a second pre-chorus, succeeded by the second chorus at 2.26. At 2.53, the second chorus finishes, followed by a guitar solo, with backing from the drums and bass guitar. By 3.33, the chorus is repeated once more, until 3.59. The main instrumental carries on until an abrupt end at 4.24. The song officially concludes at 4.26.
The song Project 'Ma' shows the results of Maria Moonlit's false prophecy and the events she set in motion to create Project 'Ma'. It in addition also shows her son Adam Moonlit and his desire to get revenge on the senate for their role in her manipulation.
Master of the CourtEdit
Many lines stated by Maria are shared by the Master of the Court in her titular song, both figures beseeching their parental figures to explain their choices as they're being directed on a certain path outside of their own will. Additionally, both figures state they have no life or heart.
Barisol's Child is an Only ChildEdit
Barisol's Child is an Only Child shows the backstory of Maria Moonlit's supposed parents, showing them from before they were put inside the Sin to sleep.
- The second verse of the song features a brief instrumental with a similar melody as the instrumental track "Prophet Merry-Go-Round" preceding it in Original Sin Story: Complete Edition.
- When the Original Sin Story: Complete Edition album was first formally announced, the tentative tracklist listed the song's title as "Original Sin Story".
