BackgroundEdit

The song was first uploaded on August 11, 2008; a song entitled "Prisoner" with Kagamine Rin as the main vocal. It did not receive much attention, however, three months after the "original" version was uploaded to Niconico, Len's version, along with a collab PV from Piapro featuring Nazekorewo-P, Madoromi, Carl, and more, was uploaded.

It became a hit with over 400,000 views, unlike Rin's version which failed to even reach 50,000 views, and instead sing it's "reply" song to Prisoner entitled "Paperplane". Shuujin-P put the tags "original song" in both the versions; so Len's version is not considered as a cover (same case scenario as Nori-P's Migikata no Cho).

Prisoner tells the tale of a boy in prison. One day he saw a girl who passes by the prison from time to time and decided to send a paperplane to her. Before long, they became friends and he fell in love with her. Unfortunately the girl had to "move away", leaving him in despair. The boy was later executed in a poison chamber, wondering what the girl's name was.

The song "Prisoner" later became one of the Append samples for "Power" (Len). Also, a novel adaptation entitled "Prisoner and Paperplane ~Boy Paradox~" was published on May 29, 2012 which sold out after 1 week of it's publish date. A sequel to the novel called "Prisoner and Paperplane ~Girl Aporia~" and a manga adaptation are also on the works to be published end of 2012.

Shuujin Paradox 2013Edit

It was revealed on February 11, 2013, that singer Suzuki Konomi's third single "Yume no Tsuzuki" from the anime Sakura-sou no Pet na Kanojo is a coupling song to Shuujin-P's song Shuujin.[1]

On February 27, the same day Shuujin to Kami Hikouki ~Shounen Paradox~' manga is to be released, Konomi Suzuki will release the single "Yume no Tsuzuki" and "Shuujin Paradox 2013", a cover of the song Shuujin with a new arrangement by Shuujin-P.

LyricsEdit

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
ある時代 ある場所 aru jidai aru basho
一人の囚人が hitori no shuujin ga
柵越しに恋をする sakugoshi ni koi wo suru
セツナイ セツナイ setsunai setsunai

自由を 奪われ jiyuu wo ubaware
迫害を 受ける hakugai wo ukeru
汚い 僕と君とじゃ kitanai boku to kimi to ja
サガアル サガアル saga aru saga aru

手紙を書きました tegami wo kakimashita
紙飛行機を折って kami hikouki wo otte
二人の壁越えてけるように futari no kabe koete keru you ni
トンデケ トンデケ tondeke tondeke

あぁ いつか自由に aa itsuka jiyuu ni
なれるというのも nareru to iu no mo
嘘だと uso da to
しってるんだ shitteru n da

君がいればどんな嘘だって kimi ga ireba donna uso datte
すべて本当になる気がした subete hontou ni naru ki ga shita
「僕とこっちにきて話そうよ」 "boku to kocchi ni kite hanasou yo"
けしてこの思いは伝わらない keshite kono omoi wa tsutawaranai

だけど君を dakedo kimi wo
見てることが miteru koto ga
明日への ashita e no
ささやかな幸せ sasayaka na shiawase

幾日幾月 iku hi iku tsuki
あれから毎日 are kara mainichi
君の紙飛行機が僕の kimi no kami hikouki ga boku no
ヨロコビ ヨロコビ yorokobi yorokobi

だけども君は dakedo mo kimi wa
突然僕に告げた totsuzen boku ni tsugeta
遠くに行くのよだから tooku ni yuku no yo dakara
バイバイ バイバイ baibai baibai

あぁ 苦しみながら aa kurushimi nagara
今日まで生きてきて kyou made ikite kite
これほど kore hodo
泣いた日は無い naita hi wa nai

君がいればどんな運命も kimi ga ireba donna unmei mo
笑顔に変えられる気がしたんだ egao ni kaerareru ki ga shita n da
名前も知らない君とであって namae mo shiranai kimi to deatte
未来が輝いた気がしたんだ mirai ga kagayaita ki ga shita n da

呼ぶことも yobu koto mo
追うことも ou koto mo
出られない derarenai
僕には出来ない boku ni wa dekinai

ついに僕の番が来た tsui ni boku no ban ga kita
君のいなくなった今 kimi no inaku natta ima
この世に未練は無いけど kono yo ni miren wa nai kedo
なぜだかココロが叫んでる naze da ka kokoro ga sakenderu

もう少しだけ生きたい mou sukoshi dake ikitai
今はもう難しい気持ちじゃ ima wa mou muzukashii kimochi ja
無くてただ最後に君に nakute tada saigo ni kimi ni
「アイタイ」 "aitai"

君と過ごした日は戻らずに kimi to sugoshita hi wa modorazu ni
走馬灯のように甦る soumatou no you ni yomigaeru
一つ一つ君がくれたもの hitotsu hitotsu kimi ga kureta mono
それが僕の生きる糧になっていた sore ga boku no ikiru kate ni natte ita

闇が渦巻いてる雑草の yami ga uzumaiteru zassou no
そばに咲く綺麗な一輪華 soba ni saku kirei na ichirinka
生きていく世界が違ったよ ikite iku sekai ga chigatta yo
だけど必死に手を伸ばしてた dakedo hisshi ni te wo nobashiteta

お願いもしこれが最後なら onegai moshi kore ga saigo nara
僕をあの子と話をさせて boku wo ano ko to hanashi wo sasete
狭く暗い閉じたその部屋に semaku kurai tojita sono heya ni
切なくただその声は響く setsunaku tada sono koe wa hibiku

胸も息も mune mo iki mo
苦しくなる kurushiku naru
せめて君の semete kimi no
名前だけでも namae dake demo

知りたかッタ… shiritakatta…
