Everybody Wants To Rule Ohtori

A Black Rose arc music video to the anime Utena. And one of the few mvs I have ever hated while I was creating it.

This is a long song to begin with, and it took me a lot longer to finish editing than I ever thought it would. There’s a lot of Black Rose sword fighting footage, and I wanted to keep the eye lines and directions correct so it looked like the opponents were actually fighting each other. I finally finished it, and think it turned out acceptable, despite the beating it took to get it into this form.

And if nothing else, it was likely Kanae’s first music video appearance for more than 5 seconds of screen time.

Premiered at Project A-Kon 2000 Music Video Showcase.

LYRICS:

Welcome to your life
There’s no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you acting on your best behavior
Turn your back on Mother Nature
Everybody wants to rule the world.

It’s my own design
It’s my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most
Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world.

There’s a room where the light won’t find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do I’ll be right behind you.
So glad we’ve almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world.

I can’t stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world
Say that you’ll never never never never need it
One headline why believe it?
Everybody wants to rule the world.

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world.
