- "I will tell you, a secret lore."
- ―Allen Avadonia[src]
The song starts in a harbor outside a town where Riliane stands alone. She recalls a legend that Allen once told her that states that if she writes a wish, puts it inside a bottle and throws it out to sea, her wish will come true. As such, Riliane writes down a wish in a bottle and sets it out herself. Recalling on her past, she regrets her actions as she realizes how selfish she was and how Allen would follow her every command, even when it caused him pain. She hopes the ocean will express her gratitude. She writes her wish with the words, "if I could be reborn."
Kagamine Rin's VOCALOID2 voicebank is utilized. The original song utilizes the sounds of waves, tambourine, french horn, musicbox, strings, viola, claps, steel drums, drums, guitar, and electric piano.
The song starts with the sound of the waves and the instrumental, ending at 1.00. The song repeats the sequence of a verse, pre-chorus, and a chorus, three times. There is a break between the second and the third sequence to emphasize the character's hesitation, and after the last chorus at 3.07, there is an instrumental variation of the chorus to build up to the finale. The finale is made of the refrain and a coda. The song ends with the instrumental variation of the chorus beginning at 3.48.
The Daughter of EvilEdit
The Daughter of WhiteEdit
The song Re birthday contains a reference to the wish sent out by Riliane in Regret Message.
Conceptualization and OriginEdit
- The song's English title, "Fallen Angel", is a reference to Lucifer, the patron demon of Pride; his name is also included in The Daughter of Evil's English title "The princess of lucifer", referring to Riliane.
- The song Re_birthday was intended to somewhat act as answer to Regret Message, with both songs having "Re" at the beginning of their titles to reinforce their parallelism.
- The origin of the legend of the sea mentioned in the song is elaborated upon in Twiright Prank; its role and origin are further elaborated upon in the novels The Daughter of Evil: Clôture of Yellow and The Daughter of Evil: Wiegenlied of Green.
- The glass bottle present in the song is referenced in Lu Li La, Lu Li La, The Resounding Song; a similar glass bottle appears in Moonlit Bear and Abandoned on a Moonlit Night.
