"Midnight Escape" (Mayonaka no Toubou) is the eighth episode ending theme of the anime Akuma no Riddle. The song comes from Mahiru "Shinya" Banba's perspective seemingly explaining how both personalities rely on one another while also pointing out how they will survive in the world.

It was performed by Banba's voice actress, Yuka Ōtsubo.

Lyrics

Mado wo aketara sukui you nai mono bakkari de
Konna machi de wa daremo ga ikiba wo nakusu yo

Nigedasou ima sugu

Ari no mama nanka ja

Iki mo dekinakute namida wo kotaeteiru

Kurayami no manto yokei na kanjou
Kakushite shimaou tsugou ga ii

Hontou no namae wa himitsu ni shitoku yo
Jibunjishin sae tsukamaerarenai

Semai rouya ni muriyari oshikometa kyouki
Sumi ni shaganda senaka ni hikari wo atetara
Sugata wo arawasu

Furueru koneko mo kodoku wo seotte
Ikiru utsu wo mitsukeru

Kurayami wo nutte hashiri tsuzukeru yo

Mou asahi ni terasarenu you ni
Kaeru basho nante imasaranai kara
Mae ni susumitsuzukete yuku yo

Shinjitsu wa kitto
Kokoro no okusoko shizuka ni nemutteiru

Kurayami no manto yokei na kanjou
Yasashiku tsutsumikonde kureru
Itsuka kono kizu ga kiesatta toki ni

Mou ichido ano basho ni ikeru yo

Open the window and there's nothing but hopeless things out there
In a city like this, everyone loses their places
I'm going to escape, right this minute

Being just my unvarnished self
I can't even breathe and I'm fighting tears

Under the mantle of darkness, unnecessary emotions
I'll hide them away, it's convenient
I'll keep my real name a secret
Even I won't be able to catch myself

In this narrow prison, madness is forced into me
If they shone light, I crouched in a corner with my back to it
It reveals my figure

Even a trembling kitten carries the burden of loneliness
While finding a way to live

I continue to run, weaving my way through the darkness
As if never letting myself be illuminated by the morning sun again
I have nowhere to return to now, so
I’ll just continue to move forward

The truth is surely
Deep within my heart, sleeping quietly

Under the mantle of darkness, unnecessary emotions
You gently wrap your arms around me
Someday, when this wound has faded away
I’ll be able to go to that place once more

Mado wo aketara sukui you nai mono bakkari de
Konna machi de wa daremo ga ikiba wo nakusu yo

Nigedasou ima sugu

Ari no mama nanka ja
Iki mo dekinakute namida wo kotaeteiru

Kurayami no manto yokei na kanjou

Kakushite shimaou tsugou ga ii

Hontou no namae wa himitsu ni shitoku yo

Jibunjishin sae tsukamaerarenai

Open the window and there's nothing but hopeless things out there
In a city like this, everyone loses their places
I'm going to escape, right this minute

Being just my unvarnished self
I can't even breathe and I'm fighting tears

Under the mantle of darkness, unnecessary emotions
I'll hide them away, it's convenient
I'll keep my real name a secret
Even I won't be able to catch myself
