The Beast in a Domino

Her school uniform A fake cover on a book A book she can’t show

The edge of her skirt Ultimate territory A convenient breeze

Her guilt-ridden smile A hint of her desires Her frilly panties

I can see under the disguise Masquerading your true essence I read between the lines of lies Your white white lies of innocence

When you’re alone the domino falls When no one else is watching you When you lay bare and topple the walls And no one is there to see you go bestial

It’s nothing criminal To think about things immoral Submitting or being forceful And doing the unthinkable There’s not a wrong at all Dreams need not be consensual There’s pleasure in the plentiful Desires inadmissible It’s nothing abnormal To crave for the unusual Exotically beautiful Sexually questionable It’s not irrational To ponder the unethical Venture into the distasteful No need to be impeccable It’s only natural The human is an animal Don’t blame yourself or feel shameful These urges are forgivable Drop the conventional Abandon yourself to carnal Fantasies of the fanciful Pleasures unimaginable Let the domino fall When you lay bare behind the walls And no one is there to see you go bestial

Slowly the sun sets In the corner of her eye The glint of madness

He searches in vain In the house where she was raised With no room to stay

Inhibitions gone In the night she tracks her prey When all cats are grey

The moonlight embraces your curves It dyes your hair a new color Your fangs and claws grow as you turn Into the one that hides under

When you’re alone the domino falls When no one else is watching you When you lay bare and topple the walls And no one is there to see you go bestial

We’ve all got something grim An offense without a victim Some kind of kink that makes us grin Others would consider a sin We’ve all done something bad That wouldn’t make our parents glad Got some regrets driving us mad But it’s no reason to feel sad We’re all a little sick And twisted when we cherry-pick Like Trekkie said to Monster chick Just grab your dick and double-click No one will will judge you here Be you straight or a little queer No one will force you to adhere To drink the Kool-Aid or the beer Freedom of taste is my lobby No kink shame in our country As there is harm in harmony Unless it’s what makes you horny Don’t be afraid to leave the shade Drop the masquerade and we’ll trade These feathers were made to parade We’ll get you sensually displayed Let the domino fall Unveil your flesh in front of all And let us enjoy seeing you go bestial

She knows what she knows Yet she keeps on pretending Her own innocence

Her pounding secrets Stacks and stacks of books to hide Of books she can’t share

Her cries to the moon The sounds of lingering pain A burning passion

This self-inflicted guilt anchor All the weight that makes you suffer What do you keep under cover What would they give to peek under

When you’re alone the domino falls When no one else is watching you When you lay bare and topple the walls And no one is there to see you go bestial

BEA-STI-AL! Yatara ama sugiru chokorēto mitai na Masshirona yoru wa uso-darake otogibanashi no sekai A pure white night is a fairy tale world full of LIES To live a life of pretension I WOULD RATHER DIE In the darkness, moments, secrets, regrets never LIE I’m the one you have repressed, the animal inside

You’re alone, the domino falls And as always I’m watching you Lying bare behind the walls And as always I’m watching you You lick your fangs feeling enthralled And as always I’m watching you In the night you go bestial And as always I’m watching you fap

This is a polished version of a song I first posted on DeviantArt a year ago. It is about a girl who believes her sexual thoughts make her a bad person. Being viewed by everyone as a perfect innocent girl makes her feel like even more of a fraud. A domino is a carnival mask, hence the line When you’re alone the domino falls. The girl feels like she’s wearing a mask in public and that her true self is the monster she turns into when she’s alone.

Fans of Nisioisin and the Monogatari Series will recognize nods to the character Tsubasa Hanekawa. The girl in that story actually represses a lot of her feelings, not just sexual thoughts, to the point where her split personalities turn into actual monsters. You can find many references to Bakemonogatari and Nekomonogatari in this piece, including lines taken from some songs in the anime:

Yatara ama sugiru chokoreto mitai na (This chocolate seems too sweet)
Masshirona yoru wa uso-darake otogibanashi no sekai (A pure white night is a fairy tale world full of lies)
In the darkness, moments, secrets, regrets never lie
