Background[edit | edit source]

Hey, it's DECO*27. Thank you all so much for making this song get to where it is today.
—Author's comment

"Ghost Rule" is an original song by DECO*27. It is one of his first songs after a brief hiatus in making music (at least in the VOCALOID field).

One interpretation of the song is that Miku is a compulsive liar, whose life has been ruined by her constant contradictions and lies. It addresses her remorse for her own actions, though believing she cannot go back anymore.

This song became an instant hit on Nico Nico, entering the Hall of Fame within the week of its publication. It later entered the Hall of Legend and exceeded over 10 million YouTube views. It also received lots of Vocaloid, Utau, and Utaite covers. Hence, this is DECO*27's most notable song, and one of Miku's most notable songs.

Alongside with Six Trillion Years and Overnight Story and THE END OF HATSUNE MIKU (LONG VERSION), Ghost Rule is currently the closest song towards entering the Hall of Myths.

This song is featured in the album GHOST. It's also featured in the game Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- Arcade Future Tone.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
どうだっていい言を 嘘って吐いて戻れない dou datte ii koto o usotte haite modorenai
時効なんてやってこない 奪ったように奪われて jikou nante yatte konai ubatta you ni ubawarete
今日だって叶わない 思ったように騙せない kyou datte kanawanai omotta you ni damasenai
腐っている僕には 腐ったものが理解(わか)らない kusatte iru boku ni wa kusatta mono ga wakaranai

おいでココまで 捨てい oide koko made sutei
「隠して仕舞ったんだ」 "kakushite shimattan da"

メーデー 僕と判っても もう抱き締めなくて易々(いい)んだよ meedee boku to wakatte mo mou dakishime nakute iin da yo
メーデー 僕が解ったら もう一度嘲笑(わら)ってくれるかな meedee boku ga wakatta ra mou ichido waratte kureru ka na
(Say Whoa…)
マボロシだって知るんだよ maboroshi datte shirun da yo
(Say Whoa…)
嘘憑きだって知るんだよ ネェ usotsuki datte shirun da yo nee

NO だって言う筈が キョドって YES を声に出す NO datte iu hazu ga kyodotte YES o koe ni dasu
後悔の脆弱は 騙したほうが正義なの koukai no zeijaku wa damashita hou ga seigi nano
卑怯だって構わない 祈っておいてそれはない hikyou datte kamawanai inotte oite sore wa nai
飾っていた饒舌が 墓穴を掘って焼ける様 kazatte ita jouzetsu ga boketsu o hotte yakeru sama

負い目どこまで 灰色(グレー) oime doko made guree
被害者ヅラしたって higaisha zura shitatte

メーデー 僕を叱ってよ 正直者が夢見たいなら meedee boku o shikatte yo shoujikimono ga yumemitai nara
メーデー 僕を裁いてよ 最後まで甘えてしまうのは meedee boku o sabaite yo saigo made amaete shimau no wa
(Say Whoa…)
亡霊だって知るんだよ bourei datte shirun da yo
(Say Whoa…)
空白だって知るんだよ ネェ kuuhaku datte shirun da yo nee

足りないものを望んだら 僕じゃない僕に出逢ったよ tarinai mono o nozonda ra boku ja nai boku ni deatta yo
それでも前に進んだの クラクラしちゃう夜も sore de mo mae ni susunda no kurakura shichau yoru mo
足りない僕を愛してよ EGO-MAMA が僕を育てたの tarinai boku o aishite yo EGO-MAMA ga boku o sodateta no
きみには僕が見えるかな 孤毒なピエロが kimi ni wa boku ga mieru ka na kodoku na piero ga

メーデー 僕と判っても もう抱き締めなくて易々(いい)んだよ meedee boku to wakatte mo mou dakishime nakute iin da yo
メーデー 僕が解ったら もう一度嘲笑(わら)ってくれるかな meedee boku ga wakattara mou ichido waratte kureru ka na
メーデー 僕を叱ってよ 正直者が夢見たいなら meedee boku o shikatte yo shoujikimono ga yumemitai nara
メーデー 僕を裁いてよ 最後まで甘えてしまうのは meedee boku o sabaite yo saigo made amaete shimau no wa

メーデー 僕を暴いてよ もう直終わるこの世界から meedee boku o abaite yo mou jiki owaru kono sekai kara
メーデー 僕と踊ってよ 最初からイナイと理解(わか)ってた? 嗚呼 meedee boku to odotte yo saisho kara inai to wakatteta? aa
