"Secrets and Lies" is a song in Death Note: The Musical.

OverviewEdit

The case progresses and tensions rise. L works on tracking down Kira, wondering how he does it. In the first dialogue interlude, L asks Soichiro Yagami to look into how the victims were reported in the media, and if their names and faces were all exposed. Soichiro agrees and the Task Force gets to work. Soichiro sings about his disagreement with L's methods, saying they're no different from Kira's.

In the second dialogue interlude, Light Yagami is still trying to track down L, and he's guessed his father's password to look at the investigation reports. Ryuk offers Light the Shinigami Eyes in trade for half his remaining life. Light sings about the choice but declines it, going on about how he'll get L himself.

In the third dialogue interlude, the Task Force learns that 23 new criminals have died of heart attacks, one every hour. L realizes it's in response to his suspicion that Kira is a student, and suspicions turn toward the police and their families. Light's done this intentionally to increase infighting, and to get the police to look into L for him so he won't need the Shinigami eyes.

Immediately after the song ends, the arrival of FBI agents in Japan is announced on the news.

English versionEdit

The song was originally written in English, but an English-language version has not been released. The original English title of the song is "Secrets and Lies".[1] On October 8, 2017, Ivan Menchell shared the lyrics when a fan asked him on Twitter.[2]

English lyrics

[L]
All of the data has been analyzed
And yet there's something I don't see
The Lind L. Tailor murder televised
Kira killed a man who he thought was really me

What information is eluding me?
With just a name, how can he kill?
What other data does he have to see?
Does he need a face to apply his deadly skill?

(dialogue interlude 1)

[Soichiro]
How can I ever be at ease with L?
His methods lack a moral code
And as for Kira, he can go to Hell
Taking L along down his dark and evil road

[Soichiro/L]
The truth is hard to sort out
Among the secrets and the lies
Familiar faces watch you
But with a perfect stranger's eyes

(dialogue interlude 2)

[Light]
Why give away half of my years
To see somebody's name?
I'm smart enough, so it appears,
To win this stupid game
I'll rid the world of
Any criminal who wants to play
And also rid the world of
Anybody who gets in my way

[L/Light]
The line is quickly blurring
Between what's right and what is not
I don't care who gets hurt now
As long as I get one more shot

(dialogue interlude 3)

[Light]
Why give away half of my years
[L]
What information is eluding me?
[Light]
To see somebody's name?
I'm smart enough, so it appears,
To win this stupid game
I'll rid the world of
Any criminal who wants to play
[L]
What other data does he have to see?
[Light]
And also rid the world of
Anybody who gets in my way

[L]
The truth is hard to sort out
Among the secrets and the lies
[Light]
Familiar faces watch you
But with a perfect stranger's eyes

[Light/L]
The line is quickly blurring
Between what's right and what is not
I don't care who gets hurt now
As long as I get one more shot
