BackgroundEdit

"RIP=RELEASE" is basically an answer song to Kagamine Len's song "SPICE!", another song by minato. It portrays how Luka knew she would get hurt, yet couldn't help being in love. It also shows a slight bit of obsession as she wants to "rip and release" his throat to obtain vengeance for what he has done to her.

"RIP=RELEASE" was uploaded just hours before the end of January 30, 2009, the day Luka was released. It reached one million views on May 10, 2009, at 14:22 hours Japan Time.[1] Additionally, it was the highest-scoring song on the Weekly Vocaloid Ranking in 2009, gaining that status when it earned 843,233 points during week 70 (February 2, 2009).[2][3]

This song is featured on the album Festiva! and the EXIT TUNES compilation album Vocalostar.

In January 2015, a short version of this song was used as a demo for Megurine Luka V4X. It used the English lyrics composed by Rockleetist and utilizes both of Luka's English vocals to demonstrate cross synthesis. It also showcased the growl feature in the demo.

The song was also commented on by Asakawa Yuu herself; she stated that Luka "really sounds like [her] real voice".[4]

LyricsEdit

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
ah- 流れてゆく 蛇口の水 ah... nagarete iku jaguchi no mizu
その他には 声もなく aono hoka ni wa koe mo naku

ah- 傍にいれば 傷つく事 ah... soba ni ireba kizutsuku koto
分かってたのに 止まらなくて wakatteta noni tomaranakute

「何処にいたの」なんて聞くなら "doko ni ita no" nante kiku nara
もう 全てを壊したらよかった... mou subete wo kowashitara yokatta...

溢れだす涙はいつも同じでも afuredasu namida wa itsumo onaji demo
痛みには心が慣れてはくれない itami ni wa kokoro ga narete wa kurenai
例えば君の喉を切り裂いてしまえたら tatoeba kimi no nodo wo kirisaite shimaetara
私だけの君に...! watashi dake no kimi ni...!

ah- 確かめ合う 言葉さえも ah... tashikameau kotoba saemo
信じることは 出来ないまま shinjiru koto wa dekinai mama

駆け上がる鼓動の速さを kakeagaru kodou no hayasa wo
もう 抑えることなんて 出来ない…! mou osaeru koto nante dekinai...!

答えを私の脳に問いかけても kotae wo watashi no nou ni toikaketemo
全身がその全てを拒んでいる zenshin ga sono subete wo kobandeiru
不安も苛立ちも悲哀や惨めささえも fuan mo iradachi mo hiai ya mijimesa saemo
耐えてゆければイイ…? taete ikereba ii...?

張り詰めた私の糸に触れないで haritsumeta watashi no ito ni furenaide
優しい言葉で期待をさせないで yasashii kotoba de kitai wo sasenaide
愛された証を求めて手を伸ばしても aisareta akashi wo motomete te wo nobashitemo
君はもう居なくて kimi wa mou inakute

溢れだす涙はいつも同じでも afuredasu namida wa itsumo onaji demo
痛みには心が慣れてはくれない itami ni wa kokoro ga narete wa kurenai
今すぐ君の喉を切り裂いて何もかも ima sugu kimi no nodo wo kirisaite nanimokamo
私だけのモノに… watashi dake no mono ni...

Written by Rockleetist, this version of "RIP=RELEASE" was used for a demonstration of Megurine Luka V4X English.

Ah, the water pools the ground.
Tranquil, yet this sound is all that I can hear.
It's resonating.
Ah, you've broken all of me.
My heart an injury that you don't care to mend
And I'm still waiting.
I should have been the one to say that it's goodbye and you know why.
When I called to say hello to know that you're alright,
Where were you last night?

Even if you break my heart a million times it all remains the same.
I wish I could tell myself somewhere inside I was the one to blame.
If I could force you with this voice of mine to truly make you see
You'll be the prisoner of this love with me.

Ah, you said so many times.
Now I see the lies when you said you loved me.
You never meant it.
Why do I lose control over these thoughts of you?
You know I do.
Still, I cannot stop the violent pace of my heartbeat
whenever we meet.

I already knew I was the only one that saw right through your game.
Even if I cried everytime you called me by another's name.
If I had a choice to take you by the hand and bring you back to me.
I would accept your love - embrace this misery.

So don't tell me promises that you and I know that you'll never keep.
And don't tell me lies when we both know that over you I'm losing sleep.
Am I crazy for believing that if I could turn back time,
I'd be the only one and you'd be only mine?

Even if you break my heart a million times it all remains the same.
I wish I could tell myself somewhere inside I was the one to blame.
If I could force you with this voice of mine to truly make you see
You'll be the prisoner of this love with me.
