Cytus - Scherzo


Sweet, my sweet, more sweet in the end
sing me words dried more than the sand
dreams of love and death
shamrocks in your hair

Leave, just leave this synthetic place
grass and worms will grow on the face
Snow-White treated skin
makes their death looking so evergreen!

Drinking some tea with trees in my backyard
gardens of daffodils dancing meanwhile

Yes, now I dance like a fool!

Fairies blowing dust
joke me with a taste of lust
skies are moving fast
so dance this ball as if you're going mad!

Drinking some pints of wine in a graveyard
gardens of daffodils dancing meanwhile

Yes, now I dance as a fool!

I'd love to be
green as a leaf
drunk of the springtime
life's never been
green as a leaf
to this sin...
to this sin!

To this sin...
to this sin!

Helpful Info

The start and end parts have swapping patterns, which people may find hard in this song. But patience again, for this is the longest song in Cytus not including Alive.

This is a song that tests your patience, it is more than 4 minutes long but only level 1 in Easy...

"Sweet my sweet mo sweet in the end" The lyrics are crazy.
— Sofia Xerneas-Yveltal
Yes...the song sure is slow and long (since it's the FULL version) but it does not deserve to be hated just becuz of that. Personally, I find it relaxed and comfortable whenever I play it.

*Selecting this song for the first time* Sure, why not? *Actual play* Oh my god, so boring...But the song is nice!
— DropletKloud
Definitely one of the best vocal songs. The music is so great! The chart is just so much fun to play... What? No GZJ, i'm not trolling, this song is real good!
