The story of the eyes saying as much as the mouth.

—Jin's Song Introduction

Outer Science (アウターサイエンス Autā Saiensu) is the fourteenth song of the series, featured on the album Mekakucity Records.


Outer Science features the end of the "Bad End" route, also known as Route XX. It takes place after the goal to combine the snakes and create a new medusa in the real world is prevented by Ayano Tateyama, who gained a snake but did not leave the Kagerou Daze again. The Snake of Clearing Eyes possesses Konoha, turning into Black Konoha, planning to kill those who received a snake and force Marry Kozakura to reset the timeline.
The snake is seen in the body of Dark Konoha, together with Azami, its former "master", who is powerless to do anything against the snake, due to the loss of her power to combine the snakes and take back the order for the Kagerou Daze to bring in anyone who died on August 15.
It proceeds to ridicule her, Marry, and Kenjirou, his "next master", for their foolish wish to keep living with the ones dear to them. Realizing the situation, Marry starts to cry and to wonder why the deaths of her friends have to repeat all over again. Once more, the snake makes fun of Azami for how the story of her life went, and that she even carelessly allowed herself to fall in love, causing the snake to laugh out loud.
Being obsessed with the thought of following its master's wish and creating a new medusa in the real world with the power of the snakes, the snake addresses Marry once more, rhetorically asking her about her power of Combining Eyes, which allows her to combine all the snakes and control the Heat Haze, a power her grandmother gave her via the Queen Snake in order to save her life.
The snake approaches the Mekakushi Dan while possessing the body of Konoha, taking one life after another, until only Marry is left. Kenjirou as well is seen dead on the floor in front of the snake. Not wanting to live in a world without her friends, Marry gives in to the snake's deliberate provocations and uses the power of Combining Eyes to reset the timeline, causing another route of the story to start.

Jin's Comment

Mekakucity Records Booklet

“This story isn't fictional.
And that’s why all of your ‘tragedies’
Are so stupid that it makes me yawn.”
Just like how when children are told by adults, “That’s so immature,”
There are times when people are looked down on from above.
Even if children view it as something grand and magnificent,
To the adults, it seems lacking and worthless.
However, imagine that there is an existence that looks down at those adults in the same way.
This is the song of a monster that overlooks everything.
People’s lives, hearts, meetings, memories, deaths—
He looks down on it all, as if they are “stupid” events in a book.
What if that existence started influencing someone’s everyday life to merely kill time?
Please enjoy this helplessly unfolding tragedy.[1]

Lyrics & Translation

Chiisaku mijime ni ikita seimei ga
Shinde wa DOA o tataku deshou
Chiisa na aruji wa mikaneru
"Iya na hanashi da"

Ookiku hirogaru nodo to doutai wa
Shinda kokoro o tokasu you ni
Yukkuri inochi o nomikomi

Me o kurinuku

ねえ 君も祈っちゃったんでしょう
Nee, kimi mo inocchattan deshou
Boku ni niramareta toki ni sa
Sonna hisouseishin ga
Daikoubutsu da

ようこそ 我が胎内へ
Youkoso waga tainai e
Ai to ego e no shuuchakuten
Kimi mo sugu ni umarekawareru
Kaibutsu mitai de suteki na koto deshou?

「ああ 神様なんで」って
"Aa, kamisama nande" tte
"Mou iya da yo" to naitatte
受け入れろよ これは運命だ
Ukeirero yo, kore wa sadame da
Tsugi no tsugi no tsugi no nushi ni kenmei shiyou

Shinwa mo inochi mo hito no unmei mo
Ukkari koi ni ochiru no mo
Hissori hebi wa waraidasu
"Baka na koto da"

Aa, nandai nandai mou tamaranai ne
くすんだ心を 舐るのは
Kusunda kokoro o neburu no wa
Chiisana inochi ni toritsuki
Me o umekomu

ああ 君に宿っちゃったんでしょう
Aa, kimi ni yadocchattan deshou
Me o awaseru nouryoku de sa
Kimi ga kono higeki no
'Jou'ou' nanda

Oukashiro yo seimei yo
Ai to ego no gasshousai
揺れる日々も 崩れ始める
Yureru hibi mo kuzurehajimeru
"Hajime no higeki" e ashinamiawasete

"Kaeshite" to nageitatte
"Mou iya da yo" to naitatte
知る事かよ それが運命だ
Shiru koto ka yo, sore ga sadame da
Hidoku moroku chachi na hibi wa shoumei darou

Nante baka na seimei wa
Nando demo aragatte
同じ話(日々)へ 逆流(戻り)始める
Onaji hibi e modorihajimeru
無謀に 不様に
Mubou ni buzama ni
泣いて 哭いて 啼いて 綯いて
Naite naite naite naite

ああ 不様な生命よ
Aa, buzama na seimei yo
"Nande?" da no to iu mae ni
求めすぎた  罪に傅け
Motomesugita tsumi ni kashizuke
Utsuro na kiseki ga hajiketekuzurete

「もう なんだか良いや」って
"Mou nandaka ii ya" tte
Nando mo tada naitatte
Owari sura mo jiki ni usureru

Tsugi no tsugi no tsugi ni kuru
Tsugi no tsugi no hi o
Tsugi no tsugi no tsugi mo choushou shiyou

Living a life in slight misery
The dead are knocking on the door, aren't they?
The small master cannot watch indifferently
It's an unpleasant story

Throats and bodies that split open and widen
In order to melt a dead heart
Leisurely swallowing up life
I gouge out eyes

Hey, you prayed too, right?
Whenever you glared at me
That kind of tragic spirit is
Something I really love

Welcome to the interior of my womb
The endpoint of love and ego
You will soon be reborn as well
It's wonderful to be like a monster, right?

Saying things like "Ahh, God, why?"
"I'm sick of this already!" you cried
Just accept it, this is fate
So next, next, next, let’s work hard for the master

Legends, life, and even people’s fate
And inadvertently falling in love, too
Quietly, the snake laughs out
“Such stupid things.”

Ah, how difficult, what a challenge, I can’t stand it
What licks at a dull heart is
Trimming away at a small life
Embedding in those eyes

Ahh, it dwells in you, right?
The "power of meeting eyes"
You are this tragedy's queen

Enjoy it, this life of yours!
Weaving together love and egoism
Those wavering days are beginning to break as well
Matching pace and heading to the “first tragedy”

“Give it back!” You lamented,
"I’m sick of it already!" You wept
You knew it, right? That's fate
That terribly petty and fragile story
Is the real thing, isn't it?

No matter how many times you deny it
This foolish life you're living
Begins to return to those same days
Recklessly, uncouthly,
Cry, sob, wail, and become intertwined.

Ahh, it’s an unsightly life
Before you ask “Why?”
You asked for too much and now serve to sin
Hollow miracles will break open and collapse

Saying “It’s enough already!”
No matter how many times you just cry
Even the end will quickly fade away

And the next, next time it comes
The next, next day
And the next, next next one after that too,
Let’s ridicule it! [2]
