BackgroundEdit

In what kind of world do we have to twist and turn to become who we want to be? Do we have to trust ourselves? Can we trust ourselves? Was my stuffed teddy bear's name actually 'Bear Bear' or was he a figment of my imagination? Can I trust myself on that? Sometimes I wonder where Bear Bear went. I never saw him after I moved from my childhood home. Was he even real? Can he hear me now? Would he be proud?
 
— Crusher-P

"ECHO" is an original song by CIRCRUSH, a collaboration between Circus-P and Crusher-P. "ECHO" became very popular shortly after its upload on Niconico Video, reaching #1 on Weekly VOCALOID Ranking #367 and receiving many derivative works. "ECHO" has entered the Hall of Legend (July 9, 2015), reached over eight million YouTube views, is featured as a bonus track in Warner Japan's compilation album Download feat.初音ミク, and has been featured on TBS's ranking show "Rank Oukoku" as 2nd most popular VOCALOID song of 2014 on Niconico Video.[1][2] "ECHO" is also available in JOYSOUND and Club DAM, allowing it to be sung in Japanese karaoke bars.[3]

The lyrics to "ECHO" are vague, and can be interpreted in many different ways; Crusher-P has expressly stated that there is no particular meaning to ECHO's lyrics, and that some fans have explained the lyrics better than Crusher-P could themself.[4]

The name of the character in the video is "Primadonna".

LyricsEdit

The clock stopped ticking forever ago
How long have I been up? I don't know
I can't get a grip, but I can't let go
There wasn't anything to hold onto, though

Why can't I see,
Why can't I see
All the colors
That you see?

Please can I be,
Please can I be
Colorful and free?

What the hell's going on?
Can someone tell me please
Why I'm switching faster than the channels on TV

I'm black, then I'm white
No! Something isn't right!
My enemy's invisible
I don't know how to fight

The trembling fear
Is more than I can take
When I'm up against
The echo in the mirror

ECHO

I'm gonna burn my house down
Into an ugly black
I'm gonna run away now
And never look back

I'm gonna burn my house down
Into an ugly black
I'm gonna run away now
And never look back

I'm gonna burn my house down
Into an ugly black
I'm gonna run away now
And never look back

I'm gonna burn my house down
Into an ugly black
I'm gonna run away now
And never look back

I'm gonna burn my house down
And never look back
And never look back
And never look back

What the hell's going on?
Can someone tell me please
Why I'm switching faster than the channels on TV

I'm black, then I'm white
No! Something isn't right!
My enemy's invisible
I don't know how to fight

What the hell's going on?
Can someone tell me please
Why I'm switching faster than the channels on TV

I'm black, then I'm white
No! Something isn't right!
My enemy's invisible
I don't know how to fight

The trembling fear
Is more than I can take
When I'm up against
The echo in the mirror

The trembling fear
Is more than I can take
When I'm up against
The echo in the mirror
