"Still Doll" by Kanon

This is one of my favorite songs now. "Wakeshima ~Still Doll" by Kanon is the ending song for the currently airring Japanese anime series, Vampire Knight. The video looks very good, and the music has that lovely gothic classical tune. It shows an image of a girl who is locked and chained inside a creepy room. An old man looks through a peephole to spy on her while she plays the cello. Mana, former performer of Malice Mizer, composed and produced this song. It definitely sounds like his type of work. It is nice to hear about him and his accomplishments again. I plan to have a review about the show after it ends later this year. Click on the link below to read the English translated lyrics:

Hi Miss Alice
With your glass eyes
What kind of dream
Can you see?
Are you fascinated with?

My heart tears
And drifts
Stuck in the patched crevices
Are memories

Hi Miss Alice
With that fruitful lips
To whom does love
Is cast away?
Is lamented?

I spin my words
Feverish tongue
Has turned cold
The song to love
Can't be sung either

still you do not answer
