    Gotta' love gothic rock.

    I think I first discovered this song from Guitar Hero 2. :P What a way to get an AMV idea.

    I thought that the song totally matched the scenes in Yami no Matsuei (especially with the lyrics, "take this rose," since there are quite a few scenes with roses in this anime).

    This video started out one way, and then took a life of its own and ended differently from what I had originally intended it to be. Actually, I liked how it turned out, but because of that, I had to go back to the beginning of my video and make a couple edits to make it fit with what the overall video ended up becoming.


    STORY:
    The whole video is mostly to show Tsuzuki's struggles as he tries to resist various temptations, especially from Muraki, who tries to persuade Tsuzuki to turn to the dark side (haha....sounds like Star Wars...okay, I'm being cheesy) and be by his side forever.

    The song is a gothic love song of one persuading the other to be together forever in the after-life -- in this video, that refers to Tsuzuki and Muraki....or is it Tsuzuki and another character?


    And so, at the end, Tsuzuki....well, guess you'll have to watch the video to find out what happens to him.



    LYRICS:

    "Pretty People Never Lie, Vampires Never Really Die"

    Look how you've grown, it's etched in skin and bone
    Dressed in make-up and bleached out in the roses
    That's hollow and tasteless, where spirits make love
    and pretty corpses hold their brides
    Do you know I'd never hurt you?

    (So taste it, taste it)

    So taste "it" and we will never be alone
    I'll take the first bite, yeah, I am Ghost
    Say goodnight to you, my darling, my darling

    Few words can kill me, they inspire in your hands

    The sun outside, look at these glass-shaped walls
    We'll burn the flesh off all these paper dolls
    We won't fall, we'll be together, just the two of us
    That's hollow and breathless, where spirits make love
    I'm lost and lonely through your eyes
    Do you know I'd never hurt you?

    (So taste it, taste it)

    So taste "it" and we will never be alone
    I'll take the first bite, yeah, I am Ghost
    Say goodnight to you, my darling, my darling

    So take this rose, so take this rose

    Take this rose, and break this bottle of aged pills
    We will sleep (will sleep) tonight (tonight) and all through December
    Soon she'll grow (I'll grow)
    Angel (angel), put me back together again.

    Taste it...
    Taste it...

    So taste "it" and we will never be alone
    I'll take the first bite, yeah, I am Ghost
    Say goodnight to you, my darling, my darling

    So taste "it" and we will never be alone
    I'll take the first bite, yeah, I am Ghost
    Say goodnight to you, my darling, my darling
