Mitsumeteta awai negai o egaki
I vision the small wish I had been gazing
|These lyrics were translated by Emi Yamada.|
- While the unplugged songs on THE MARROW OF A BONE (2007) didn't get different titles on the album itself, this song's unplugged version was titled THE PLEDGE [UNPLUGGED] on the "DIR EN GREY AUDIO LIVESTREAM 5 DAYS" setlist.
- On the setlists for the TOUR07 THE MARROW OF A BONE -PREMIUM LIVE- on April 21 and 28, 2007, the unplugged version uses the addendum -Unplugged-.
- On March 15, 2019, the band performed an acoustic version due to Kaoru's equipment failing halfway through the song.
- During the line まだ上手く生きられないさ 変えられるのはただ… (Mada umaku ikirarenai sa Kaerareru no wa tada…), the background vocals sing "ru ru ru". At the end of the line, Kyo sings "Pledge to you". Both were only included in the band score's sheet lyrics.
