Taking the mysterious woman (who may or may not be Yukari) up on her offer, Satori is shown a vision of her past, a past that she had long forgotten about. She used to live a quiet life in the Human Village, using her mind-reading powers for the good of the people. But one fateful day…
Key (colour-coded for your convenience): Satori, Chorus.

This is the wonderful Human Village! Here, all of your wishes will come true!
This is paradise: the Human Village! Here, nothing’s out of the ordinary.
Here, you can do everything. It’s a paradise above ground.
In the blue sky, birds dance around.
The path ahead stretches for who knows how long.
Anyone can play the leading role!
Now, let’s sing! Let’s dance!
[That’s right!] This is paradise.
“Ah, what unbelievably happy days…
My powers must have been born to lead these good people along!
Everyone has such kind hearts… I’m so fond of these humans!”
“Hey, how did she know what I was thinking?”
“There’s something… weird about that.”
“What should we do…?”
“What should we do? Let’s drive her from the village!”
“Something like that’s a devil – there’s no difference between them!”
“In order to protect our peace…”
“Let’s put her to trial!”
Youkai are enemies, the enemies of humankind
Find her! Seize her! “After her!”
I’ll be damned if she reads my heart.
Come, gouge her eyes out!
“She went that way!” “After her! Don’t let her get away!”
“We’ll take back our peace!”
Like we were ever fooled by her! She’s a devil, just as we thought.
Nothing good can come of trusting demons, we must challenge and wipe them out!
There she is! Have your blades ready…
It’s time for her judgement! “It’s time to deal a blow, deal a blow, deal a blow, deal a blow to this menace!”
Now, fight, shivering with courage! We don’t need any monsters in our paradise!
Now is the time to sweep away the sparks that rush upon us! Under the flag of justice –
Now, hang her, that monster, hang her, kill her!
