about

This is a standalone single by Illusionary Funeral, as a gift to fans for waiting so long for the second album, Impossible Requests by the Lunatic Majesty.

lyrics

She who shall remain obscure,
Guardian of the
Village which houses the
Weak humans in this realm

No memory remains of what's once in their sight
As what's scribed by time then is devoured with sleight

Vehemently warding off demons and ghouls
To hinder the guardian is an errand of fools

Pedagogue by dawn, creator by nightfall
Time can't touch her, the history eater
Immortal anthropoid bound to duality
Omniscient monster, the history eater

Cursed to be a half-wraith
Yet opposes her kind
Rewrites the past to
Defend these fragile, ungrateful
Humans residing in
Gensokyo, a world so
Lapsed from passing ages gone
Imparting knowledge and strength

With the waxing of the moonlight, she rears her horned
Head to unveil such a blasphemous, cryptic form

Pedagogue by dawn, creator by nightfall
Time can't touch her, the history eater
Immortal anthropoid bound to duality
Omniscient monster, the history eater

Wise sounds that come from the upper stream
Of a white valley shall hint at her name

Cursed to be a half-wraith
Yet opposes her kind
Rewrites the past to
Defend these fragile, ungrateful
Humans residing in
Gensokyo, a world so
Lapsed from passing ages gone
Imparting knowledge and strength

Pedagogue by dawn, creator by nightfall
Time can't touch her, the history eater
Immortal anthropoid bound to duality
Omniscient monster, the history eater

The eater
Creator
The teacher
Of History
The eater
Creator
The teacher
Of History
The eater
Creator
The teacher
Of History
The eater
Creator
The teacher
Of History
