Clues To a Poor Man's Breifcase

Recommended Posts

Okay, im going to level with all of you, this song was absolutely amazing.

It introduced different elements that I personally wanted to see from criminal idol, a more focused plot, and an emphasis on mystery. Ryan has blew me out of the water. It may be the best Criminal idol song to date.

Please discuss the latest song in the comments. What do you think it is about? Did you like it as much as I did? 
Talk about it with me in the comments! ^^

On an objective scale? Probably an 8.5/10

The rest of criminal idol ranges from 6-7.5 for me IMO, Great sounding music, but a surface level plot that didn't keep me interested for too long. Things are starting to pick up though and I can see the episodes from here on out to be filled with more important plot details that I admire so much in media.

That's just me though of course, I'm a pretty critical critic and when I look at criminal idol I rate based on the quality of the story rather than the quality of the music. (If I were to rate just on the music, it would be in the 9s) :P

@Car1992you are right. I should get those lyrics out there. Though the download was only temporary so i didn't have time to do it up correctly. ^^;

Three of us from your discord are currently taking a stab at getting all of the lyrics down on a google doc, lol

Lyrics!! (Subject to change)
Special thanks to Doctor and Cy for helping me try to figure these out.
The second line is pretty close to accurate now, but we would love to hear any suggestions!  Help us figure it out 100% please :)

EDIT: I took in the suggestions from Unlocked, Iridescence, and Blackeyefaltip to create a more accurate version of the lyrics. I also changed a lot of the inconsistent wording In the chorus. Thank you all for the suggestions!
(For the second line I think ...boy from its old age is confirmed from static, so I'm gonna keep it like that)
 

Clues to a Poor Man’s Briefcase Lyrics

 

There's a note on the floor with a briefcase

Note this fuse goes through the boy from its old age
Briefcase is locked,

Contents Unknown,

They wrote...

 

But Daddy, Daddy was a good, good gentleman,

This Ally, Ally was home home without a bed.

Holme is a naughty child,

Rich are the hearts that smile.

 

I try to be the perfect child,

But it's hard to be,

Life is often wild

And the kids are mean!

 

We still bathe twice a month,

Don’t call me greasy.

 

This heart that you gave me,

Is strong enough.

 

This path that you paved for me,

Has made me tough.

 

I hope you forgave me,

For all my doubts,

This life we’ve made,

Is worth the ups and down.

 

One more time for the sake of God

I swear, I’ll give the best I've got

I won’t let things keep(a) me down,

Oh no~ No

One more time for the sake of love

I know that I was strong enough,
This life, This Soul, was made for good

For gooood~

Yeah!

 

I still remember taking showers in the bathrooms at school,

“Sorry about the mess, Also thank you for the sink.”

He offered you a job that day,

Did you know his face?

Did you know that we would become like slaves

(Slaves to the mafia)

This place ain’t good for ya.

Remember when you bought those notes,

For you and me,

I won’t forget what they mean.

 

How you signaled to show your sympathy

This heart that you gave me (This heart that you gave me)

Is strong enough (Is strong enough)

This path that you paved for me has made me tough (This path that you paved me has made me tough)

I hoped you forgave me for all my doubts(I hoped you forgave me for all my doubts)

 

This life we’ve made is worth the ups and downs,

 

One more time for the sake of God

I swear, I’ll give the best I've got

I won’t let things keep(a) me down,

Oh no~ No,

One more time for the sake of love

I know that I was strong enough,
This life, This Soul, was made for good

For goood~

 

One more time for the sake of God

I swear, I’ll give the best I've got

I won’t let things keep(a) me down,

Oh no~ No,

One more time for the sake of love

I know that I was strong enough,
This life, This Soul, was made for good


 

But I remember some nights,

In the upright!

The little gang fights,

You would comfort me with protection,

 

(Uh oh, uh, uh, uh, uh oh)

Brother, Thank you.

(Uh oh, uh, uh, uh, uh oh)
 

 

I remember one night,

When my boss came,

You were told to fight right

For the A-gen-cy

 

So you left me,
(Uh oh, uh, uh, uh, uh oh)

But you flashed your ring,
(Uh oh, uh, uh, uh, uh oh)

 

And never turned to look back,

But you knew that,

I was still behind ya,

As your right hand,

 

But the signal,
(do, do, do, do, do, do-do)

Through the secrecy,
(do, do, do, do, do, do-do)

 

It led you to the front line of a battle,

We were losing big time,

But you kept cool,

 

As we walked right past,

To free up at last.

 

“Sometimes, Life can be pretty hard; So to the ones that find this note, the code to this briefcase is the name of what lies inside. It is a symbol of a unity, friendship, and shared lives. It is a reminder to be understanding. To trust and to forgive. Please, only take as many as you need. And return the clues back to there former locations.

 

Sincerely,

"The Ring-bearer”


One more time for the sake of God

I swear, I’ll give the best I got

I won’t let things keep(a) me down,

Oh no~ No,

One time for the sake of love,

I know that I was strong enough,
This life, This Soul, this was made for good,

For gooood~

 

Yeah!

What I think we have for the second line:

"Note this fuse goes through the voice from its old age."

"Note" and "fuse" have likely been confirmed by Static. "From its old age" may be confirmed, but I don't think we know for sure.

Voice vs boys is currently unclear. The lyric sounds slightly more like boys, but voice seems like it might make more sense in the context.

Theory: Our main character (MC) had a best friend and they were working for the agency. Our MC left his friend behind when the boss came. That friend became the ring bearer. Somehow, our MC got amnesia before he joined the club. The friend made the rings to try to get our MC to remember the past. The agency got revenge on our MC by framing their group for the bombing which the agency organized. The friend stayed in the shad owe watching over our MC and didn't take action... until now.

Hey, Reala. I want to say thanks to you, Doc and Cy for getting us these lyrics. I just noted a few things about the lyrics that I think could be changed, no offense intended.

3 hours ago, Reala said:

But Daddy, Daddy was a good, good gentleman,

Cause, Ellie, Ellie, was home home without a bed.

This is my take on it:

My daddy daddy was a good, good gentleman,

This alley, alley was a home home without a bed.

 

And then the next line sounds something like 'homeless [something]'

I could be hearing it wrong, but what I'm hearing is:

That's pretty much all I got, minus maybe some choices of word that I disagree with, but those are just really pedantic and don't really change the meaning. This is my first time trying to transcribe lyrics, so there's a good likelihood I'm wrong, so sorry if I messed up!

Thanks for the suggestions! Sometimes I think the words in the chorus change slightly so i'll make sure I got back and edit those when I have the time to give the song a listen a few more times. :)

I think I know what's in the briefcase.  "Memories" or at least something related.  It fulfills the first few points of the riddle.  They are a symbol of unity, friendship, and shared lives.  Mistakes in your past can be brought back as memories.  That fits the next few points.  "Take as many as you need" says that there has to multiple of the object, so "Memories" seems fitting.

"Homeless ain't nothing child" 

We originally thought that it said "Holmes is a naughty child" speculating that Holmes was the first name of the detective. But in context of the song what I just wrote seems more correct.
Anyone have any thoughts on this before I edit the lyrics again? Upon repeated listens I think it is the former, but I'd love to hear what you all think.

"I still remember taking showers in the bathrooms at school, "Sorry about the mess, Also, thank you for the sink."" This line really struck a chord with me. I wonder why.

At first I thought it was "Upright" but now, as I listen, I think it's actually upra. However upra isn't a word. But, if you think of brotha from the line after this, you could piece together uprar or uproar. What do you all think? @Reala

"But I remember some nights,

In the uproar

of the little gang fights,

You would comfort me with protection,"

also it dawns on my how optimistic this line tries to refute hard times. just because you are homeless doesn't mean you can't be rich with happiness or smiles.

"But Daddy, Daddy was a good, good gentleman,

This alley, alley was home home without a bed.

Homeless ain't nothing child,

Rich are the hearts that smile."
