EVILS THEATER

mothy

A solitary man, the “Collector”
Created just before his death
A small, small theater.

There was only one work that he screened
Just a documentary introducing his “collection”

When that theater inside the forest
Was completely forgotten by everyone

The springs start to move
A singing voice rings out

The “collection pieces”, with their own hands
Begin to make a new story

In the small, small theater
The one acting as curator,
Is the one he loved most in his lifetime,
“The Clockwork Doll”

And the lead role is…

11. South North Story

1. The Daughter of Evil

The princess of Lucifer

Once upon a time
Reigning at the top
Of a fiendish kingdom was
A noble girl of age 14

Luxurious and splendid furnishings
A servant whose face greatly resembled hers
A favorite horse named Josephine
Everything, everything was hers

If there wasn’t enough money
Choke it from the ignorant masses
Those that would oppose me
Completely purge them

“Come, kneel to me!”

The flower of evil sweetly blooms
With brilliant color
The pitiful weeds around her
Indeed, they’ll turn to nourishment and rot away

The tyrant princess was in love with
A blue man of across the sea
Though he fell in love at first sight
With a green woman in the neighboring country

The princess, mad with jealousy
One day summoned her cabinet minister
And said in a quiet voice
“Send to ruin the kingdom of green”

Many houses reduced to ashes
Many lives disappearing
The suffering people’s lamentations
Don’t reach the princess

“Oh, it’s tea time”

The flower of evil sweetly blooms
With maddening color
Although it’s a very lovely flower
Indeed, there are too many thorns to touch it

To overthrow the evil princess
At last the people rose up
Leading the disorderly mob was
A female swordsman in red armor

Their rage accumulated in conviction
Wrapped up the whole country
Soldiers tired from the long war
Weren’t a threat

Finally they surrounded the palace
The retainers escaped
The adorable and lovely princess
At last was captured

“You insolent thug!”

The flower of evil sweetly blooms
With colors that seem sad
The paradise for her
Indeed will collapse, brittle and transient

Once upon a time
There was a noble girl of age 14
Who reigned at the top
Of a fiendish kingdom

The time of her execution was 3 PM
A time when church bells would ring
That person who was called princess
What did they think, alone in jail?

Finally that time arrived
The bells signaling the end ring
Without taking notice of the crowd
She said

“Oh, it’s tea time”

The flower of evil pitifully scatters
With brilliant color
Afterwards, people will say
Indeed, she was certainly the Daughter of Evil

2. The Servant of Evil

His significance of existence

You are the princess, I am a servant
Fate divided, miserable twins
I’ll protect you, if it’s for that
I will even become evil

We were born in high expectations
Blessed by the church bells
By the arbitrary circumstances of adults
Our futures were split into two

Even if all the world
Becomes your enemy
Because I will protect you
You should keep on smiling

You are the princess, I am a servant
Fate divided, miserable twins
I’ll protect you, if it’s for that
I will even become evil

While on an outing to the neighboring country
In town I happened upon that green haired girl
I fell in love at first sight
With that kind voice and smile

But if the princess
Asks me to erase that girl
I shall answer that
Why? These tears won’t stop

You are the princess, I am a servant
Fate divided, maddened twins
“Today’s treat is brioche”
You laugh, you innocently laugh

This country may end very soon
At the hands of its crazed people
If it’s said this is our punishment
I shall take it upon myself to oppose it

“Look, I’ll loan you my clothes”
“Wear them and escape immediately”
“It’s alright, we’re twins.”
“I’m sure no one will know”

I am the princess, you are a fugitive
Fate divided, sorrowful twins
If it’s said that you’re evil
Then that same blood runs in me too

Once upon a time
I had a very precious sibling
Who reigned at the top
Of a fiendish kingdom

Even if all the world
Becomes your enemy
Because I will protect you
Keep smiling somewhere

(Finally that time arrived
The bells signaling the end ring
Without taking notice of the crowd
You speak my favorite phrase)

You are the princess, I am a servant
Fate divided, miserable twins
I’ll protect you, if it’s for that
I will even become evil

If only we could be reborn
Let’s play again then, okay?

3. Wordplay

Clockwork lullaby ZERO

For the first time I learned the word called mom
For the first time I memorized the word called dad

For the first time I learned the word called wind
For the first time I memorized the word called water

For the first time I learned the word called friend
For the first time I memorized the word called dream

Around the time I memorized the word called love
I learned the shape of the world

For example, to convey what I’m feeling now
What sort of words would be correct?
Only to know that simple answer,
I’ll determinedly continue my wordplay

For the first time I learned the word called lie
For the first time I memorized the word called wound

For the first time I learned the word called sin
For the first time I memorized the word called retribution

Around the time I memorized the word called evil
I learned the darkness of the world

For example, when you abandoned me
What sort of words would apply?
In order to learn an answer I don’t want to know
Let’s continue my wordplay for some ways yet

For example, to convey what I’m feeling now
What sort of words would be correct?
Good morning, good day, thank you, farewell
I’ll determinedly continue my wordplay

I will be here no matter what
Teach me words as always

4. Clockwork Lullaby

Clockwork lullaby I

Teach me words as always
And I will change them into a song

What did you obtain in a delusion?
Only one song of truth

Lulila lulila, this singing voice
To who’s side will it reach?
Obtaining a key called words
And opening the gates of the unknown

I carried in both hands the toy I had requested, and thus obtained
And threw it out the window

Humans who are never satisfied
What do you wish for, what will you achieve?
If you’re worn out, now simply
Sleep

Lulila lulila, can this lullaby
Heal your heart, I wonder?
Carrying a sin called desire
And right now still dreaming

Lulila lulila, this singing voice
Is the clockwork lullaby
If you don’t turn me
I’ll stop forever

The flower-like memories
And even the mud-like traumas
They continue to turn and melt
All of it inside of me.

5. Tale of Abandonment on a Moonlit Night

insane moonlight

Mother,
What kind of fortune does this path lead to?
Over there,
Will we be able to eat lots of our favorite snacks?

Father,
Beyond this point is God waiting for us?
Why
Do you look at us with such sad faces?

Inside the dark forest
We understood the whole truth
That if we continue in this way
We’ll soon be unable to return

The two of us left all alone
It's like Hänsel and Gretel
By the small light of the great moon
We don’t know the way home

We walk, a wandering walk
It doesn’t mean we don’t have a clue
A small glass bottle is lit up by the moon
The sparkling light illuminates the way
Nevertheless, we’ll walk
Without knowing whether this is the correct path
Finally we found it, and we understand
This is the witch’s house

Come, let’s attack the evil witch
Cast her in the burning stove
When she’s gone
Surely we can become happy

Hey mother, praise me
I defeated the evil witch

Hey father, praise me
I defeated the witch’s henchman too

At any rate
This is a really calming place, huh?
It feels as if though long ago,
We used to live here, doesn’t it?

Come, let’s go meet our real mother and father.

6. Miniature Garden Girl

Clockwork lullaby II

Inside this room it’s just you and me
Let’s continue singing this song together
I don’t have to know anything of the outside world
If that’s what you wish

I called you “father”
And you called me “daughter”

Worrying about me who can’t walk, you
Completely filled up the room with beautiful things for me

In a red glass
Is a blue spoon
A pair of two mirrors with yellow borders

Inside this room it’s just you and me
Let’s continue singing this song together
I don’t have to know anything of the outside world
If that’s what you wish

A dark bedroom and the window’s scenery
That’s all of the world to me

You are always kind, but
You don’t teach me of the outside world

The small objects of this room
They laugh at me
“You and us are one and the same”

Lulila lulila, I sing
So that the outside world can’t hear
I shall sing for your sake alone
Because that’s what I wish

From your mouth I heard a word called “war”

Why is the room burning?

From a burned out mansion they found
The remains of a solitary man, and
A scorched clockwork doll

7. Evil Food Eater Conchita

Beelzebub party

In a corrupted mansion with a rotten stench hanging in the air
Today as well the last supper begins
With numerous foods that could make anyone’s hair stand on end
Is the lone smile of a woman looking to eat

Her name is Banica Conchita
Formerly a master of this land’s gourmet foods
To that end what she pursued
Was to extremes the most supreme evil food

(Honor and praise
Our own great Conchita
This world’s food
All of it exists for you)

Completely devour everything in this world
There’s still room to go in my stomach
This pale blue, shining, deadly poison
Is most suitable as a spice for the main dish ❤

Chew it down to the bone marrow
If that’s not enough, bite into the dishes too
The tip of my tongue running with supreme bliss
This dinner isn’t over by a long shot

My fifteenth cook
Employed this year said to me:
“Before long might I be able to take a vacation?”
Good grief, you can’t do anything with these people, huh?

(Honor and praise
Our own great Conchita
Let’s give thanks
For receiving traitors’ just desserts)

Completely devour everything in this world
Today’s menu is specially made
The pale blue shining hair
Is just right as an hors d’oeuvre for the salad ❤

Chew it down to the bone marrow
If that’s not enough, you should get “seconds”
Just a second, Mr. Servant over there
What kind of taste do you have, I wonder?

Before she knew it the mansion was completely empty
And there was nothing inside, there wasn’t anyone anymore
Nevertheless she continued to desire
To extremes the most supreme evil food

Completely devour everything in this world
She looked at her own right hand
And quietly smiled

“There’s still something to eat isn’t there?”

Conchita’s last evil food
The ingredients were, yes, her very self
Now there’s no longer anyone who knows the flavor
Of the body that had thoroughly mastered foods

8. Ten Minute Love

BUS STOP MAGIC

Hoping to meet you,
I’m at the bus station one early morning
Trying to keep from yawning a little

I don’t know your name or age
And I can’t manage to talk to you
I want to know more about you

Ten seconds before departure (the door will close)
Running over, you (finally)
Make it onto the bus (we’ve met)

Oh traveling bus, carry this love
Right now I can’t do anything yet
My feelings are timid
I’m glad to wait at a traffic light
So until my destination
It’s a love of just ten minutes

You’re two meters away diagonally to the right
Why does it feel like we’re far away
Despite us being so close?
(Should I talk to you?)

Once we’ve passed that hill
It’ll only be a little longer ‘till my destination
The chime signaling the end rings out
(It’s the next stop)

I don’t even know yet (the door opens)
If I really like you or not (to you)
For now I just…

Oh traveling bus, carry this love
It’s goodbye for now but I’m sure
I’ll see you again
I want to tell you my feelings someday
Until that time
It’s a love of just ten minutes

9. regret message

Fallen angel

At a small harbor on the outskirts of town
Is a girl standing alone

At this sea there’s a
Secret tradition from long ago

“Put in a small bottle”
“Your wish written on parchment”
“If it’s set adrift in the sea, one of these days”
“Your wish might bear fruit”

It floats away, a small glass bottle
A message with a wish put in
Beyond the horizon
It silently disappears

Although you always
Did everything for me

I was always nothing but selfish
And inconvenienced you

You who granted my wishes for me
Because you’re already gone
So I will deliver my feelings
To this sea

It floats away, a small wish
With tears and a little regret
The realization of my sin was always
After everything was over

It floats away, a small glass bottle
A message with a wish put in
Beyond the horizon
It silently disappears

It floats away, a small wish
With tears and a little regret

“If only we could be reborn…

10. Re_birthday

Clockwork lullaby III

When I woke, I was alone
In a room smeared black
Not able to see, not able to hear
I tremble alone in the dark

In the ceiling there’s a big hole
Looking closely, there’s a huge spring in there
From beyond that, there suddenly resounds
A ghastly, mysterious voice

"Sinful boy
From this point on you will never
Be brought from this room"

It said

In that moment I recalled all of my memories
The many sins piled upon myself
Along with the reason I’m here, in the end I realized
That I can’t return to back then anymore

When I came to, both my arms were clad in red manacles
That is surely the color of someone’s spilled blood
As for both my ankles, they have blue colored chains
That is surely the color of someone’s tears

"Lulila lulila", the song I came to hear
I wonder who is singing this lullaby…?

How much time has passed?
I asked of the unmoving spring
Only the singing voice
That I’m hearing out of nowhere heals me

One day I realized
The true meaning of that song
And I added on new words
To the lullaby

From a gap in the spring
A small light fell down
This is, surely

⏤A message you sent me⏤

The spring that began to turn recites quietly
“Your sins will never be forgiven”
But a word called water, a word called evil
We shall change those into a song

The red manacles fall off and address me
“After this you will be reborn”
The blue shackles fall off and talk to me
“Today is your new Birthday”

Everything spins and dyes white

I’ll go to see you very soon

11. South North Story

ANOTHER WORLD

Where was here, I wonder?
Who was I, I wonder?
I unroll a colorless map
To the south, to the south

Where did she go off to, I wonder?
Who was “she”, I wonder?
I’m searching for a person I don’t know at all
To the north, to the north

At an intersection built at someone’s whim
If we didn’t notice, we would have passed through
“Good day” “Good day”
“Nice to meet you” “Nice to meet you”
“How are you?”

Highly similar but a little different, such a pair
That they met in this way could also be some kind of fate
Having stopped a bit, is having a chat
Something we can go do here as well? With the two of us

The town is already far over the horizon
The one I met was
While like “a mirrored image”
She’s a different me

Same appearance, same ribbon
Even if we secretly switch places
People probably wouldn’t find out, huh?
Together we laughed

In the south I was a student
In the north I ruined a country
Happy things, sad things
One by one we tell each other them
In the end, let’s laugh

Highly similar but a little different, if such a world
Met in this way, would something change?
With our personalities we choose different paths
But that isn’t a mistake either

the worlds just cross
The worlds just gone
it is simply foreordination
no reason for us
but we are here
so “nice to see you”

we’re just alike
we’re not the same
it is simply you and me
no reason for us
but we are here
“it’s time to go”

Before long it’s time for farewells, huh?
It was fun. “Another me”
Bye bye, if we have the chance again some day
At this crossing…
