BackgroundEdit

Before his death the lonely man created a small theater deep in the forest

"Heartbeat Clocktower" is the fourth song in the Clockwork Lullaby series. The song was originally on Akuno-P's piapro page in 2009 and was exclusively for his fans following him on piapro. It was later included in his album "prelude to forest". Eventually, mothy made a "final" version of the song, with an added tag "(F.V.)" (Forest Version), uploaded to Niconico on April 26, 2010. The forest version is featured in also in the EVILS FOREST and Evils Kingdom albums.

The song concerns a mysterious clocktower and its actual guardian, Gear. The dead owner, embodiment of Greed and former guardian of the clocktower, the "Collector", created a theater for the "Collectibles" where they forever enact their story.

Gear's main concern is to keep a young girl "with ugly burns on her body" (The Clockworker's Doll) alive through the clocktower, and if it stops, she will die.

Performing his task day by day, he describes other inhabitants of the clocktower, including the Master of the Graveyard, who devours any helpless visitor who had the bad luck to end up in the theater, and a "pretentious" servant girl (Waiter) who "indulges in selfishness", but expresses sadness for the loss of her "other half" (Irregular).

He also observes how the Kayo's Scissors and the Venom Sword continue to be "dormant". Gear, realizing that the clock was going to stop soon, sacrificed himself to keep it running by taking out his own heart and using it to power the clocktower.


This song has entered the Hall of Fame.

LyricsEdit

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
時計塔の 歯車の音 tokei to no haguruma no oto
それは彼女が生きている証 sore wa kanojo ga iki te iru akashi
この秒針が止まらぬように kono byoshin ga tomara nu yoni
見守るのが「僕」の役目 mimamoru noga "boku" no yakume

かつての主人 物欲の化身 katsute no shujin butsuyoku no keshin
自らの罪は いつの日か mizukara no tsumi wa itsu no hi ka
おのれ自身を滅ぼすのだと onore jishin o horobosu no dato
どうして早く気付けなかったか doshi te hayaku kuzuke nakatta ka

彼女の半身に今も残る 醜い火傷の跡は kanojo no hanshin ni ima mo nokoru minikui yakedo no ato wa
あの二人の思い出を刻んでる ano futari no omoide o kizan deru

今日もまた 迷い込んだ kyo mo mata mayoi konda
何も知らぬ哀れな訪問者 nani mo shira nu aware na homon sha
彼らもすぐ「墓場の主」の karera mo sugu "hakaba no aruji" no
胃袋に収まることだろう ibukuro ni osamaru koto daro

主役気取りの あの「女の子」 shuyaku kidori no ano "on'na no ko"
いつも通りのわがまま三昧 itsumo dori no wagamama zanmai
「片割れ」を失ったさみしさ "kataware" o ushinatta samishisa
少し顔に宿しながら sukoshi kao ni yadoshi nagara

孤独な男がその死の間際に作り上げた kodoku na otoko ga sono shi no magiwa ni tsukuri ageta
森の奥の小さな映画館 mori no oku no chiisa na eiga kan
忘れ去られたその時に鳴り始めた wasure sara reta sono toki ni nari hajimeta
ぜんまい仕掛けの子守唄 zenmai jikake no komori uta

「血染めの鋏」 「紫色の刀」 "chizome no hasami" "shishoku no katana"
いまだ目覚めぬ彼らを待つ日々 imada mezame nu karera o matsu hibi
全ての唄が語られたときに subete no uta ga kata rareta toki ni
理想郷は完成するらしい risokyo wa kansei suru rashii

時計の針が 止まることは tokei no hari ga tomaru koto wa
彼女自身の終わりを意味する kanojo jishin no owari o imi suru
錆ついて欠けた歯車達 sabi tsuite kaketa haguruma tachi
残された時間は長くない noko sareta jikan wa nagaku nai

孤独な男がその死の間際に作り上げた kodoku na otoko ga shi no magiwa ni tsukuri ageta
森の奥の小さな映画館 mori no oku no chiisa na eiga kan
館長を務めるのは彼が最も愛した kancho o tsutomeru nowa kare ga mottomo aishita
「ぜんまい仕掛けの人形」 "zenmai jikake no ningyo"

覚悟は決めた kakugo wa kimeta
僕は自らの左胸に boku wa mizukara no hidari mune ni
そっと手を当て深く差しこんだ… sotto te o ate fukaku sashi konda...

僕のぜんまいは時計塔の歯車と boku no zenmai wa tokei to no haguruma to
響き合って そして新たに始まる物語 hibiki atte soshite arata ni hajimaru monogatari
時計の針が止まらぬように tokei no hari ga tomara nu yoni
廻り続けるのが僕の役目 mawari tsuzukeru noga boku no yakume
