1. A young child's play game, 'Circle You, Circle you' in English. One child is chosen as the oni (literally demon or ogre, but similar to the concept of "it" in tag) and sits blindfolded (or with their eyes covered). The other children join hands and walk in circles around the oni while chanting the song for the game. When the song stops, the oni speaks aloud the name of the person behind them, and if they are correct, the person behind will exchange places with the oni.
Lyrics: Kagome kagome, the bird in the cage, when, when will you come out? In the evening of the dawn, the crane and turtle slipped. Who stands right behind you now?
The rhyme can be given an even more sinister meaning when you imagine that "in the evening of the dawn" translates to "in the end of light", "the end of first light", or to "one who backstabs you early in the morning (in your sleep)". The latter makes even more sense because Kagome, in the cage, is blind-folded.
2. A dark-themed song by Megurine Luka and Miku Hatsune from the popular Vocaloid. It's about children who cannot die. They are mentally unstable and will kill at any chance. Very good song, but also very creepy.
1. Alright, kids, gather around and link hands. Lets play Kagome Kagome! Do you remember the rules? If the Kagome can't guess who's behind them, then we circle them again. Remember--Those who circle Himeko are the Oni, and Himeko is the bird, or Kagome.
2. Kagome Kagome, please don't try to run from us. Kagome, Kagome, what games will we play can I guess? Before the moon sets again, you can play with us until then! Kagome, Kagome, who surrounds you everywhere? | Orphanage deep in the forest greens, so no one would find the dark machines. Made from a little child's brain, immortality built of children's pain. | Even if your head is crushed in, even if your arm is taken. The children who can never die, they laugh at you sweetly
