This, together with Linker and Re-Nation, was one of the three Hymmnos crafted during the time when the First Tower was being built.[1] Its function is putting the Tower in Sleep Mode (shutting down the system infrastructure called SIS), rendering all Song Magic useless and taking the Administrator with it, as she cannot stay conscious due to her conscious self being part of the SIS[2][3]. However, all the vital facilities of the Tower such as the SH Server, the Musical Corridor and the Plasma Bell remain active, as they were created after the Tower's completion and are managed under a different administrative system, the BIS.[4][5] Similarly, Grathmeld is still possible because the Silver Horn is also considered as a part of the BIS.[6]

The Administrator then enters a suspended animation sleep until the Tower is rebooted. This is done in order to carry out the Tower Administrator Guard Change Ceremony, as the Tower must be in Sleep Mode while the proper software and hardware configurations to replace the current Administrator with another Reyvateil Origin are being carried out, otherwise the Tower will suffer from multiple system errors.[7]

Additionally, the reason this Song has such a sorrowful sound to it and so much longing in its lyrics it's due to two reasons: first, the Song is based off the yasra dius manaf requiem the Moon Chanters have sung since time immemorial, and fittingly, the Tower Administrator sings it as a requiem for herself, as due to how the Administrator Guard Change works, the current Administrator will permanently die if this Song's counterpart, EXEC_RE=NATION/. is sung after configuring another Reyvateil Origin as the new Administrator due to the processes that maintain her alive going offline for good.[8]

This Song also Suspends the Second Tower, and ceases the sending of Symphonic Power to Sol Marta. It doesn't have any effects over Harvestasha, since both Towers are completely independent from each other, but it could be said that this song is somewhat related functionally to EXEC_METEMPSYCHOSIS/., because of both being controllers for the Symphonic Power of their respective Towers.[9]

During the events of Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia, Shurelia sang this Song after it was shown that Mir was invincible regardless of how much Lyner and his party fought her. Thinking this would be the best for the world, Shurelia started singing Suspend to render Mir harmless, but also falling herself into a sleep she thought would be permanent. Unfortunately, this also interrupted the flow of energy to Metafalss and caused part of the Rim to collapse[10], as well as rendering all the non-IPD Reyvateils completely powerless until the Tower was finally restored to its full functionality by Aurica. These events caused a severe unrest in Metafalss that pushed the Grand Bell to hasten their preparations for their War Against the Goddess, as due to being unaware of what was the true cause behind that disaster, the Metafalssians thought the Goddess was taking retribution for going against her, while the more knowledgeable people thought the energy from Sol Marta was cut off by the Goddess' guardian.[11]

Feelings Contained in This Song

Oh, valiant knight,
If you have come to pick up this book,
then, hear what I have to tell you before you do so.
It has been used for fighting,
it is completely unable to be burned away even inside the flames of battle,
as it is the cursed book that will never
be allowed to disappear.
That is what I must tell you.

The life that is exchanged for the world
will have their death permanently stopped in compensation,
walking and wandering endlessly in the abyss of darkness,
without being able to rot away,
continuing to suffer in the neverending passing of time,
without anyone to save them,
just to end crushed inside the lonely darkness.

Are your hands trembling?
If you do,
then, you should just stop attempting to take my hands and bringing me up.
For the sake of the beloved woman that awaits your return at home, for the sake of the children that await your return at home.
You should better run back to your home now.
As courageous as you are, you don't have the same worth as this world's existence.

That is how serious crafting
the hope of this world has always been.
Even so, you are saying I now have to save this world as well?
If that is the case, then show me a way to continue living.
The curse that has been placed over me has given me
a body that won't be allowed to die unless I plunged into the flames of hell.
I'll become the cornerstone to seal the demon king
that has driven this world to the brink of destruction.
Because the seal would be broken if I died,
and the demon would still reduce this land to ashes.
If that ever happens, I wish to become the new sacrifice for this world.

However, no new sacrifices will be needed for the rest of eternity,
as only one person is enough to become the sacrifice
for this beautiful world.
When I was still an innocent girl,
it was already decided that I was to carry that burden,
so I think it'd be better for me to not cause anyone suffering ever again.

Or would you offer yourself as the sacrifice in my stead
and make me go back to being an innocent girl?

Oh, valiant knight, please head back home.
Please, you must not waste the happiness you have now.

Trivia

Composer Takashige Inagaki once stated this Song was originally going to be a counting song, but since for some reason he and lyricist Junko Kudou were unable to do so, he ended up doing it instead for EXEC_HIBERNATION/. together with lyricist Reiko Takahashi.[12]
