Lyrics

側に来て 崩れ行く抑制
僕を怖がらないで Ah

飛べない鳥が 夢見た空
交わって濃いLove それは違うRed

ドアを叩く音に僕は耳を塞いだ
叩いてるのは君 それとも他の…

Will your lips taste the KISS OF DEATH?

Darling 運命が血管を走るよ
動き始めた世界… 愛
誰よりも溶け合いたいよ Darling
僕を怖がらないで、 Kiss me now

君を味わいたい そんな僕は変
一人じゃそれは 感じられない

抱きしめ合うのは傷を塞ぐから
僕の唇でその息を塞ぐ

Will your lips taste the KISS OF DEATH?

Darling 鼓動が指の先まで
溶け出す気持ちは何? ねえ
側に来て 崩れ行く抑制
僕を怖がらないで Kiss me now My Love!

失い行く時と似た感覚と 君の味がした
Did your lips taste the KISS OF DEATH?

Darling 運命が血管を走るよ
動き始めた世界… 愛
誰よりも溶け合いたいよ Darling
僕を怖がらないで
君を味わせて And kiss me now!

Soba ni kite kuzure yuku yokusei
boku wo kowagaranaide Ah

tobenai tori ga yume mita sora
majiwatteku iro sore wa chigau Red

doa wo tataku oto ni boku wa mimi wo fuseida
tataiteru no wa kimi sore to mo hoka no…

Will your lips taste the KISS OF DEATH?

Darling unmei ga kekkan wo hashiru yo
ugoki hajimeta sekai… ai
dare yori mo tokeaitai yo Darling
boku wo kowagaranaide, Kiss me now

kimi wo ajiwaitai sonna boku wa hen
hitori ja sore wa kanjirarenai

dakushime au no wa kizu wo fusagu kara
boku no kuchibiru de sono iki wo fusagu

Will your lips taste the KISS OF DEATH?

Darling kodou ga yubi no saki made
tokedasu kimochi wa nani? Nee
Soba ni kite kuzure yuku yokusei
boku wo kowagaranaide Kiss me now My Love!

shi wa yuku toki to nita kankaku to kimi no aji ga shita
Did your lips taste the KISS OF DEATH?


Darling unmei ga kekkan wo hashiru yo
ugoki hajimeta sekai... ai
dare yori mo tokeaitai yo Darling
boku wo kowagaranaide
kimi wo ajiwasete And kiss me now!

Come over here beside me. My restraint crumbles.
Don’t fear me.

A flightless bird dreamed of the sky.
The color mixing there is a different kind of red.

I covered my ears to the sound of knocking on my door.
Is that you knocking? Or is it some other?
Will your lips taste the kiss of death?

Darling, fate runs through my veins
As this world begins to move …is it love?
I want to melt like no one has before, Darling.
So don’t fear me, just kiss me now!

I want to taste you …does that make me weird?
It’s something we’re unable to feel all alone.

Embracing one another will keep our wounds sealed,
So I’ll seal your breath with my lips.
Will your lips taste the kiss of death?

Darling, what is this melting feeling I feel
From the beating of my heart to the tips of my fingers? Hey…
Come over here beside me. My restraint crumbles.
So don’t fear me, just kiss me now, my love!

I felt something like the moment of death
With your taste.
Did your lips taste the kiss of death?

Darling, fate runs through my veins
As this world begins to move …is it love?
I want to melt like no one has before, Darling.
So don’t fear me, just kiss me now!

Animation

Opening 1

The opening opens with a shot of Strelizia, panning down. As it reaches Strelizia's 'waist', it cuts to Zero Two leaning backwards to the audience. The next shot shows her wearing just the hat and jacket of her full ensemble, looking up to face the viewers. A hand reaches out and caresses Hiro's chin (presumably Zero Two), followed by two different shots of Zero Two, the second one ending with Zero Two leaning back and falling gracefully, leaving her hair sweeping across the screen as the short instrumental before the verse plays.

Hiro's face is shown, downcast, as his details (such as his name and code) flash on the screen. The bold, red background contrasts his colourless, greyscale self. It zooms out and shows Hiro walking apathetically, which is quickly replaced with a younger Hiro in the Garden uniform and a lighter background. A close up of Zero Two, dressed in her full parasite ensemble, follows. This too quickly zooms out, and she is seen walking alongside Hiro in the same fashion. The screen starts to swirl with blue, then flashes a flashback from Episode 13, which seems to startle Hiro. The viewpoint changes and Hiro is now seen facing Zero Two. Their cut-outs slide past one another and transitions to the next scene. Here, three shots of the Garden is seen - from the top, front and a zoom in of the front. In the last shot, all the members of Squad 13, besides Zero Two can be seen amongst the other children, as children. All the children in this shot don the uniform worn by the children at the Garden. While all their faces are not shown, it is easy to make them out due to their unique hairstyles and code numbers flashed in white (from left: Zorome, Mitsuru, Futoshi, Goro, Hiro, Ichigo, Kokoro, Ikuno and Miku).
