The Song I Heard Somewhere is a song released by Akuno-P on August 16, 2015 in the Original Sin Story: Complete Edition album. It is the ninth song in the Original Sin Story.

PlotEdit

Asked if she remembers the song she'd heard somewhere, the dying Irina Clockworker is approached by Seth Twiright with a stuffed red cat. As the burned scientist says today is her "re_birthday," he touches her and Irina spots a light in the sky, remembering the song she'd once heard. She describes how an experiment begins on the night of the full moon as she muses how this "song" changes each era, repeating the "lu li la" melody.

Now in her red cat body some time later, Irina mentions two things becoming one and wonders what her reason for living is. She notes how, once "they" left, they said to continue the experiment alone. Seeing seven lights in the sky, Irina realizes she's living to get revenge on the woman who stole everything from her. Beginning her vengeance under the new moon, Irina then announces she will turn people "evil" as well. She finally describes how the song she heard somewhere, the Clockwork Lullaby, will likely change into a new song eventually.

CompositionEdit

Nekomura Iroha is the vocal library used for this song. Synthesizers, electric guitar, drums, and bass guitar. The song begins with a dissonant synth melody, with accompaniment from the guitar. At 0.17, the drums kick in, forming the main instrumental of the song. At 0.38, the first verse begins, then precedes the pre-chorus at 1.00.The pre-chorus continues until 1.34, when the first chorus begins, nearly identical to the chorus of Full Moon Laboratory. At 1.52, the verse ends, and an instrumental break occurs.

By 2.12, a guitar solo begins, until 2.23, with the second verse taking its place. At 2.48, the second pre-chorus begins, finally succeeded by the second chorus at 3.20. At 3.41, the second verse concludes, and a bass solo can be heard afterwards. At 3.58, the third chorus begins, this time with a change in key. The final chorus ends at 4.36, returning to the original key of the song. All instrumentals of the song halt at 4.54, signifying the end of the song.

LyricsEdit

「どこかで聞いたことのあるこの唄 君は覚えてるかい?」
死にかけの私に近づいて
そう問いかける科学者の男
抱えてる赤い猫の死骸
私の前に放り投げた
よく見ればそれは
布と鉄で作られたぬいぐるみ

「これから君は生まれ変わる 今日が君のRe_birthdayだ」
火傷だらけの腕で彼が触れた
『私だったもの』

暗闇の空から差し込む光
それを見て私は思い出す

そう これはかつてこんな唄だった

満月の夜に始まる実験
時代が変われば唄もまた変わる

私の心は変わらない
身体は赤い猫になった
死ぬことはもう無くなったけど
もう人間に戻ることもない
二つを合わせて一つに変えたとして
二倍にはなれない
私はこれから何のため生きればいいのだろう

いなくなる前に彼は言った
「もうここには戻らない 君は君の実験を続けなさい」

南空舞い散る七つの光
それを見て私は思い出す

そう 全てを奪ったあの女に報復を!

三日月の夜に始まる復讐
身体が変われば目的も変わる

あの人が私を創ったように
今度は私が人を「悪」に変える

どこかで聞いたことのあるこの唄
いずれはまた違う唄になるだろう

ぜんまい仕掛けの子守唄

"Dokoka de kiita koto no aru kono uta Kimi wa oboeteru kai?"

Ano hito ga watashi wo tsukutta you ni

Dokoka de kiita koto no aru kono uta
Izure wa mata chigau uta ni naru darou

Zenmaijikake no komoriuta

“This song that you have heard somewhere, do you remember it?”
Approaching me as I was dying
Was a male scientist who asked me that
He tossed in front of me the remains of a red cat
That he was carrying in his arms
Looking closer,
It was a plushie made of cloth and iron

“After this you will be reborn, today is your Re_Birthday”
With arms covered in burns, he touched
‘What used to be me’

A light shines into the dark sky
Looking at it, I remember

Yes, this was formerly such a song

On the night of the full moon the experiment begins
If the era changes, then the song will change again too

My heart hasn’t changed
My body became a red cat
I wouldn’t be dying anymore, but
I won’t be returning to human anymore either
Supposing I joined together two so that they became one
They couldn’t become double
What should I live for from now on?

Before disappearing, he said
“I won’t return here again, continue with your experiments”

Seven lights scatter about in the southern sky
Looking at them, I remember

Yes, I’ll live for retribution against the woman who stole everything!

On the night of a new moon my revenge begins
If my body changes, my goal will change too

Just like that person made me
This time I’ll turn people “evil”

This song that I have heard somewhere
Eventually it’ll become a different song again won’t it?

The Clockwork Lullaby
