Background[]

"Dancer in the Dark" is a song by FatmanP featuring Megurine Luka. It is in a minor key and heavily utilizes synthesizers, although at the quieter parts a piano and strings take the center stage. The song begins with the refrain, followed by a verse, the refrain again, a second verse, and a final refrain.

The singer sings that she is "fighting against God in such a dirty, cruel place", and that her left arm has been blown off. In addition, her right arm is "full of scars", and her wings have been torn off. These wings are likely symbolic, perhaps representing personal independence, as she claims she has "devoted everything". In the verses, she wonders why she is even fighting, and says the pain from her scars is always tormenting her. She thinks her emotions are growing numb and slowly dying out, and wonders why she has destroyed so much.

The PV depicts Luka in a city at night, holding a gun. Her left arm appears to be present, but is entirely black, unlike her other arm, which is bare. In one scene, a butterfly is shown falling away from its left wing.

This song has entered the Hall of Fame. Its most popular reprint on YouTube has over two million views. It is featured on the album EX:P2 ~Ex:Producers2~.

Lyrics[]

I keep on fighting against God in such a dirty, cruel place.
My left arm has been blown off, and my wings have been teared off.
I keep on fighting against God in such a dirty, cruel place.
My right arm is full of scars, and I've devoted everything.

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
ナゼワタシハココニイルノ? この暗く淀んだ世界で naze watashi wa koko ni iru no? kono kuraku yodonda sekai de
理不尽な傷の痛みが 私を常に苛(さいな)み続ける rifujin na kizu no itami ga watashi o tsune ni sainami tsuzukeru
失うことを刻み続けて 麻痺していくこの感情に ushinau koto o kizami tsuzuke te mahi shite iku kono kanjou ni
捧げたものを数え続けて 繰り返すその問いを sasageta mono o kazoe tsuzuke te kuri kaesu sono toi o

I keep on fighting against God in such a dirty, cruel place.
My left arm has been blown off, and my wings have been teared off.
I keep on fighting against God in such a dirty, cruel place.
My right arm is full of scars, and I've devoted everything.

ナゼワタシガタタカッテルノ? この脆く軋(きし)んだ世界で naze watashi ga tatakatteru no? kono moroku kishinda sekai de
不愉快な傷の疼(うず)きが 私を常に苛(さいな)み続ける fuyukai na kizu no uzuki ga watashi o tsune ni sainami tsuzukeru
捨て去ることを認めつづけて 壊死していくこの想いに sute saru koto o mitome tsuzuke te kaishishite iku kono omoi ni
壊したものを数え続けて 繰り返すその問いを kowashita mono o kazoe tsuzuke te kuri kaesu sono toi o

I keep on fighting against God in such a dirty, cruel place.
My left arm has been blown off, and my wings have been teared off.
I keep on fighting against God in such a dirty, cruel place.
My right arm is full of scars, and I've devoted everything.
