Lyrics from
"...Dakara watashi ga koroshite yaru to itta no ni,"
"Ano ko wa kessou wo kaete tantei yaku wo kattedeta no da..."
"Sazokashi you ni natte ita darou?"
"Naze nara ano ko wa jibun ga tsumi wo tsugunau beki da, to"
"Omoikonde iru no dakara ne..."

Lyrics from
" although I told him that I would do the killing,"
"that child's expression changed and he volunteered to play the role of the detective..."
"Surely he portrayed one well?"
"It's probably because that child is under the impression"
"that he must atone for the sins he's committed..."

Lyrics from

Doushite anata wa  anata jishin ga kizutsuku koto de
Dareka wo mamorou to itsumo kangaete shimau no?
Hajime kara watashi ni mekakushi shita no wa anata ne?
WAIN GURASU wa, hontou wa futatsu atta no deshou?

Lyrics from

Why do you always think that you can protect someone
When you yourself are hurt in the process?
Weren't you the one who blindfolded me in the first place?
There were two wine glasses in reality, weren't there?

Lyrics from
Kare wa "doku" de shinazu to mo
Izure "NAIFU" de shinde ita no yo

Lyrics from
Even if he didn't end up dying from the "poison"
He would have died from a "knife" in the end

Lyrics from
...Anata no kawari ni NAZO toite agemashou
Konna katachi de jiken wo owarase wa shinai
Sabitsuita noroi wo toite agemashou
Ijiwaru na hannin ga kaketa noroi wo

Lyrics from
...I'll solve the riddle in your place
I can't let the case end in this way
I'll break this rusted curse
A curse placed by a malicious criminal

Lyrics from
Katarareta koto ni uso ga atta to shika omoenai
Ano jiken no toki, anata wa hontou ni "tantei" datta?
Mou subete kako ni owatta koto da to iu no nara
Doushite anata ga sonna ni aseru hitsuyou ga aru no?

Lyrics from
I can't help but think that you fed me nothing but lies
At the time of that case, were you truly the "detective"?
Even if you say "what's done is done"
Why must you be so anxious?

Lyrics from
Karera wa hitori to futari shika
Korosezu hannin ni wa narenakatta

Lyrics from
You couldn't be the criminal without
Killing them one at a time

Lyrics from
...Sono mimimoto de sasayaite agemashou
Anata wo machigaete koroshite shimau mae ni
Watashi ga anata wo NAZO toite agemashou
"Gokuaku na hannin wa anata de wa nai"

Lyrics from
...I'll whisper in your ear
Before I mistakenly kill you
I'll solve the riddle about you
"This heinous criminal is not you"

Lyrics from
Watashi wo tasuketa sono ude ga
PIANO wo hiku tame ni aru to shitte ita nara
Watashi wa ubawazu ni irareta no kashira...

Lyrics from
If I had known that the arm which saved me
Had been used to play the piano
I wonder if I wouldn't have robbed you of it...

Lyrics from
...Watashi ga, futatabi NAZO kakete agemashou
Kono NAZO wo toite shimau hito ga arawareru nara
Kono monogatari ni tojikomete shimaimashou

Lyrics from
...I'll bring about another riddle
If a person that can solve this riddle appears
I'll trap them in this tale

Lyrics from
"Youkoso, watashitachi dake no sekai e"

Lyrics from
"Welcome to our world" 

Lyrics from

"Monogatari wo kanketsu saseru ni wa subete no ningen ga shinaneba naranai"
"...Kanketsu de wa naku kaiketsu shitai, da to?"
"...Shikashi kono NAZO wa kakete iru mono ga oosugite"
"Kimi ni wa totemo toku koto ga dekinai darou?"

Lyrics from

"For the story to reach its conclusion, all the characters must die"
"...You want it not to conclude and to be resolved?"
"...But this riddle is missing far too many facts"
"You simply cannot solve such a thing, am I right?"

The first and last paragraphs are in the video, but not spoken.
