Seven Crimes and Punishments is a song released by Akuno-P on February 13, 2015. It was included in an album of the same name. It is the eighth song in the Clockwork Lullaby Series, depicting the seven main characters from the Seven Deadly Sins Series.

PlotEdit

Allen Avadonia announces they shall now begin; Duke Sateriasis Venomania relates that the seven flowers have been released, him drowning in lust while concealing his ugly true face. Banica Conchita then relates that the seven seeds have descended and taken root in the ground. Banica describes her plans to melt everything, even the world, in her stomach. Princess Riliane Lucifen d'Autriche regards that from the gems it was built upon, her evil kingdom is now unstoppable. With the vessels of malice released by the cursed twins, the three proclaim that the story that will be drawn will be of seven crimes and punishments.

As the seven winds violate the world with poison, Margarita Blankenheim, the false sin and the main source of everything, laments that she isn't able to sleep today either. In the seven springs, Kayo Sudou sees the face of the man she loves, however, other people intefere and she wishes they didn't exist. In the court buried in the soil, Gallerian Marlon commands his farce called a trial to be begun. While the three claim everyone wishes for their utopia, they relate the outcome that will be met will be seven crimes and punishments.

Nemesis Sudou then asks if the song of the forest can be heard, but remarks it's only her gunshot of destruction before firing at the screen. After the seven again proclaim that the story drawn from the vessels the cursed twins released will be of seven crimes and punishments, they and Hänsel and Gretel sing the Clockwork Lullaby.

CompositionEdit

Drawing from hard rock elements, the song primarily uses piano, electric guitar, bass guitar, drums, and miscellaneous synthesized instruments. It also utilizes the voicebanks of Camui Gackpo, MEIKO, Kagamine Rin/Len, Hatsune Miku, Megurine Luka, KAITO and GUMI.

The song opens with a piano melody, which later becomes its main melody. It gradually gains accompaniment from the other instruments until 0.20, when a guitar solo is performed until 0.35, gaining drums and the synthesizers. At 0.51, a brief bass riff is heard, and immediately picks up into the first verse at 0.55, sung by Gackpo. The verse is passed along to MEIKO at 1.15, and Rin sings the first pre-chorus beginning at 1.35.

The first chorus is a trio between the voicebanks, sung until 2.08. An refrain of the opening melody begins afterwards, then a brief synthesized bass riff plays. The second verse begins with Miku at 2.30, and switches to Luka at 2.50. The second pre-chorus is sung by KAITO at 3.10, and leads to the second chorus shared between the three Vocaloids at 3.20. At 3.35, a faint "lu li la" melody is sung by Len.

At 3.55, a guitar solo begins, and lasts until 4.35 when the third pre-chorus is sung by Gumi, followed by the sound of a gunshot at 4.45. Another chorus begins, using all of the Vocaloids along with the "lu li la" melody which gradually grows louder. The chorus ends at 5.10, followed by another refrain of the opening melody. At 5.15, the "lu li la" melody is sung by everyone until 5.26. The song ends at 5.30.

LyricsEdit

「さあ 始めよう」

七つの花は舞い 罪は今放たれた
醜い素顔 覆い隠したまま
溺れゆく情欲

七つの種は降り 大地に根を張るだろう
全てを解かす 胃袋の強酸
そう 世界さえも

石の上に築かれた
「悪ノ王国」はもう止まらない

呪われた双子から 
放たれた悪意の器
いかなる物語を 描くのか

七つの罪と罰

七つの風の中 毒に犯される世界
あらゆる元凶 今日も眠れないと
嘆く偽りの罪

七つの泉には 愛する人の面影
だけど違う影が いつも写り込むの
お前達さえいなければ

土に埋もれた法廷で
さあ始めよう 裁判という名の茶番を

誰しもが求めてる 
それぞれの理想郷(ユートピア)を
いかなる結末を 迎えるのか

七つの罪と罰

聞こえてくるのは森の歌?
いいえそれは破滅の銃声

呪われた双子から 
放たれた悪意の器
いかなる物語を 描くのか

七つの罪と罰

るりららるりららら
るりららるりららら
るりららるりららら
るりららるりららら

"Saa hajimeyou"

Nanatsu no hana wa mai tsumi wa ima hanatareta

Nanatsu no kaze no naka doku ni okasareru sekai
Arayuru genkyou kyou mo nemurenai to
Nageku itsuwari no tsumi

Nanatsu no izumi ni wa aisuru hito no omokage
Dakedo chigau kage ga itsumo utsurikomu no
Omaetachi sae inakereba

Saa hajimeyou saiban to iu na no chaban o

Dareshimo ga motometeru
Sorezore no YUUTOPIA o
Ikanaru ketsumatsu o mukaeru no ka

Nanatsu no tsumi to batsu

Kikoete kuru no wa mori no uta?
Iie sore wa hametsu no juusei

Nanatsu no tsumi to batsu

Ru ri ra ra ru ri ra ra ra
Ru ri ra ra ru ri ra ra ra
Ru ri ra ra ru ri ra ra ra
Ru ri ra ra ru ri ra ra ra

Come, let’s begin

Seven flowers flutter about, the crime is now unleashed
While my unsightly true face is masked
I continue to drown in lust

Seven seeds rain down, roots will stretch through the ground
The acid of my stomach will melt everything
Yes, even the world

This “Evil’s Kingdom” built up on the stone won’t stop anymore

The vessels of malice that were unleashed from the cursed twins
What sort of story do they paint?
Seven crimes and punishments

In seven winds the world is violated by poison
The source of everything, a false sin
That laments how she can’t sleep today either

In seven springs are traces of the one I love
But different images always get in the way
If only you people weren’t around

In the courtroom buried in soil
Come, let’s begin this farce named a trial

Everyone is searching for their respective utopia
What kind of conclusion will they meet?
Seven crimes and punishments

Is it the song of the forest I can hear?
No, that’s the gunshot of destruction

The vessels of malice that were unleashed from the cursed twins
What sort of story do they paint?
Seven crimes and punishments

Lu li la la, lu li la la la
Lu li la la, lu li la la la
Lu li la la, lu li la la la
Lu li la la, lu li la la la

TriviaEdit

Conceptualization and OriginEdit

  • The song's title is derived from the Seven Deadly Sins featured in the series.
  • The song was released to commemorate mothy's seventh anniversary of his song career.
  • Despite the anniversary officially being February 28, the song was released on February 13 to coincide with the release of the Seven Crimes and Punishments album crossfade.
  • According to mothy, the song wasn't originally planned for the album and was added at the last minute because he wanted something "flashy";[1] he admitted that it ultimately tied together the entire album rather nicely.[2]
  • The song has a strong association with the number seven; it features the seven main characters from the Seven Deadly Sins Series, was uploaded at 7:00 PM JST, was meant to commemorate mothy's seven-year anniversary, and has been labeled as "Clockwork Lullaby 7" for its English title.
  • During each singer's segment in the song, a unique instrumental is used along with the standard melody, each resembling one of the instruments used in the corresponding character's Seven Deadly Sins song.
  • During the segments for Riliane and Gallerian, the unique sound effects used in their respective Seven Deadly Sins songs can be heard; during Nemesis' segment, the gunshot sound effect from The Last Revolver is used.

CuriositiesEdit

  • While released to coincide with the Seven Crimes and Punishments album crossfade, the song PV was ominously uploaded on Friday the 13th.
  • Like all the songs in the Seven Deadly Sins Series, the song begins with the phrase "さあ" (Saa).
