The generous 33 tracks of this soundtrack cover a sizeable chunk of the show, combining the Akio and Apocalypse Arcs, episodes 25-33 and 34-39 respectively. Virtual Star Embryology appears here in the TV ending version, as well as the duel chorus version used for Saionji’s duel in episode 25. Also featured here are two duel choruses from the Utena Sega Saturn video game. Herzen’s Head and Me and My Room, Upside-Down. This soundtrack has the honor of being the only one without a version of Absolute Destiny Apocalypse. What it does not have is the last ‘duel’ chorus, Missing Link, used in episode 39; look to OST 4, Angelic Creation, Namely, Light for that one.

The background music on this soundtrack is varied, and tends to stretch genres even more than the previous two since there’s a jazzy ongoing theme to music used for Akio scenes. The real stars of the show are the duel choruses, as far as I'm concerned. Starting with Mikage’s, J.A. Seazer takes over their production entirely, bringing in his theater group, 'Theater Laboratory - Universal Gravitation' [Engeki jikken-shitsu - ban'yū inryoku] to record the songs. The resulting pieces are much heavier sounding, with a sense of them being live compared to the more studio processed previous duels. They’re also, like the Akio Arc duels, a lot longer and a bit slower, befitting each Student Council member's last turn in the ring.

A note: The given names are predominantly based on the Utena Translation Project's original translations of the songs. Where a song title has become widely accepted as different, ie. The Sunlit Garden instead of The Sunny Garden, I have used the more popular name. Punctuation has been altered to better match the Japanese tracklists. Bolded titles appear as English on the Japanese soundtrack.

The "Comparison" options when available are side by side multiple translations, romantization, and Japanese, depending on availability. They're an awesome and surprising resource, and I hope you check them out.

I Am An Imaginary Living Body
Translation by Robert Paige &
          Utena Translation Project (1998)

Incandescent darkness and birthed puppets
Are named, anthropoperipherism
Pulling the strings of the world is a single existence
For the others, an imaginary puppet-craft

Subzero darkness and birthed creatures
Correlated, anthropoperipherism
On the natural stage are the units of existence
Comprised of an imaginary creature-craft

Words are born, the encounter, then a hesitation
Knowledge is born, the encounter, then a void
O where am I, when am I

Spell, incantation, mystery, prayer, myself
Stage destiny magic mirror

Full moon, mysterious and transmutable, 
I'm an imaginary living body come to its end
Full moon, mysterious and transmutable, 
I'm an imaginary destined body come to its end

Seeking time, without rest
Living on, a speleomorph

Seeking land, armless, legless
Still existing I am, transparent, intangible, 
a faint sigh...

[Nozomi (Official)]
I Am An Imaginary Living Body
Official Translation
          Nozomi DVD Release (2011)

Darkness, burning, puppets given life
The name given is Human Movement Theory.
The world is controlled by a single being.
The rest is imagined puppetry.

Darkness, freezing, creatures given life
Linked by Human Movement Theory
On nature's stage are units on existence.
Comprised of the imaginary art of life.

Words are born, they meet, then hesitate
Ideas are born, they meet, then become empty.
Oh, where am I and when am I?

Spells, charms, mysteries, prayers, me.
Stage, destiny, magic, mirror.

Full moon. Mysterious and ever-changing.
I am an imaginary life form at my end.
Full moon. Mysterious and ever-changing.
I am an imaginary destined form at my end.

Asking for time. Never resting.
Living on, a hollow form.

Seeking land. No arms, no legs.
Yet I still exist. Formless and transparent.
I let out a faint sigh...

Translation by Robert Paige &
          Utena Translation Project (1998)

Ancient times, perfect, solitude in the desert
Air, atoms, the planet of causality

Yes, a native child
Conception
The embryo of philosophy

Egg, perfect, the origin in the nest
A stamen, a pistil, one seed

Yes, a native child
Growth
The child of philosophy

And 
Lunar Heaven, Mercurial Heaven, Venusian Heaven
Solar Heaven, Martian Heaven, Jovian Heaven
Saturnian Heaven, Sidereal Heaven, Motive Heaven

Further circular infinity without end
A kind of organic engine
A kind of perpetual motion device
Ah, lost motion 
I'm a lost motion

Yes, a child of earth

And then 
lunar heaven! Mercurian heaven. Venusian heaven. 
Solar heaven. Martian heaven. Jovian heaven.

[Verthandi]
An Immortal Emperor in a Mundane Universe
Translation by Verthandi

Existance: wonderous alchemy
Base metals; precious metals
From right to left,
Start to end,
Destruction, the hunt, a frenetic dance, a celebration banquet

Birth: unviewable alchemy
Apparatus of artificial recombination
From top to bottom,
A metamorphosis into a curious shape
Books, anonimity, self-indulgence, wildness

An unchanging world (I am)
I am unchanging
Ka Wa Ra Wa Ra Zu Ra 
Zu Ka Zu Ka Wa
Unchanging

It ends: The wasted labors of foul and fish
It ends: The deceptive game of the egg and bed
It ends: The ancient dance from the boat and carriage
It ends: The anticipation of the sea and waterfall

Glittering reverie, flickering imagination
Parched vision, slithering expression
Murmuring delusion, flittering thought
Fluttering invention, trembling supposition

Birth: immortal alchemy
The cosmic egg of time and space
Philosophic crystal, Rosicrucianism
Purity, harmony, and perspective

The future, past, and present me
The future, past, and present me

Glittering origin, flickering solitude
Parched labyrinth, slithering space-time
Murmuring reminiscence, flittering memory
Fluttering evaporation, trembling immortality

The future, past, and present me
The future, past, and present me

Destruction. Hunting. Dancing. Feasting.

Birth. Invisibility. Alchemy.
Artificial. Recombination device.
From top to bottom. 
Metamorphic heteromorphy.

The world does not change.
And I, I do not change.
Never change,

Stop! The efforts of birds and fish are all for nothing!
Stop! The egg and the bed are cheating each other!
Stop! The ancient dance of ship and coach.
Stop! The anticipation of the sea and waterfall.

Shining dreams. Shimmering imaginings.
Withered fantasies. Fragile conceptions.
Rustling delusions. Flickering thoughts.

The Angel Androgynous
Translation by Verthandi

Pentagram shape
Pleasure
Mandala
Reproduction axis
Ideals and reality
Male and female

Dignity; chastity
A double submission of passion; lusterous waves
A prototype of antiquity connected with me
Seraphitus
A couple equipped with both sexes
Seraphita

Paradise mechanism
Model
Mosaic
A doubling dream
Odd numbers and even numbers
Light and darkness

Individuals or multitudes?
Words or things?
Such doubt is beside symbol,
The Dioskuroi
All Creation, both sexes, chaos
Anima, animus

I hasten my spiritual completion
Namely, to rediscover the interior of my ego
Right and left, the two of me
Angels, all Creation, man and woman, both sexes

A pair of heads; a pair of bodies
An internal pair; an external pair
A pair of sexes; a private pair
A pair before; a pair behind

In this world, I am a solitary duo
In this world, I am alone with myself
In this world, there are but two of me
Two of me
Of me, two
Me: two of
Two of me
In this world, I am androgynous
Ahhh...Ahhh...Ahhh...Ahhh...
Hermaphrodism!

All in heaven and earth and both the sexes.

Two heads, two bodies.
Two insides, two outsides.
Two breeds, two me's.
Two fronts, two backs.

I'll make the word just for the two of us!
I'll make it so that we're the only two in the world!
I'll make it so it's only the two of us!
The two, the deux,

I will make the world androgynous!

An ode to my face,

my hair
An ode to my nails
and my torso
An ode to my hands
and my feet
This is an ode to all the parts of my body

In other words, a crest;
This is the heraldry of the human body

That figure in the mirror
Performs delicate work in a complex situation
Charge argent on field sable; courtly ettiquette
Charge sable on field argent; shield-shaped design

People arrayed in impenetrable symbol
The historical art of the Baroque

The Salamander
The Dragon and the Urchin
The hidden miracle of the Eucharist
Creed and virtue
Kept in confinement,
The miracle of the rose
Human-beast-flower
Pearl and jewel
The age of man
Floral diamond and cross

Salamanders.

Internal Clock, Municipal Orrery
Translation by Verthandi

An image of Death rocks my mind
I pull the cord; toll the bells
The cock beats its wings; when the window opens
The twelve disciples are mere dolls
Unblinking, a grand parade

The old orrery (clock of astronomy)
An automatic mechanism
The twelve constellations of the ecliptic me:
The zodiac, I, The zodiac

Within my body, from olden times,
One hundred towers rise above
A visceral landscape; Utopia
In the cemetary, a church, a cloister

Eye of Earth;
motive specimen
Intellectual organ of stone;
the sign of Motive Power
Unfinished embryo;
the secrets of Death
The theater, the hospital, the historical museum

Artificial flesh; grotta; Labyrinth;
illusionary construction; marble
Artificial clock; weight; spring;
spinning and turning; individual time

From the ancient city to me,
It ends with that day, quotidian clock
The sun in daytime;
the moon at night
The natural clock of a day

Bong bong, ding dong ding,
Bong bong, ding dong ding.

The corporeal city and the Mystery of the clock
Geometric law, puritanical construction
Monotony; eternity
The present; perpetuity
All Creation is reality
Monotonous
Infinitely changing

I will take the form of a corporeal city
I shall take the form of a suspended clock

Municipal clock, a discovery
Municipal clock, an understanding
Municipal clock...
"Annihilation!"

The figure of Death, his head shaking.
The rope tightens, the bell rings.
The rooster flaps, the window opened.
The 12 Apostles, like statues!
Unblinking, a grand parade!

The ancient orrery,
automatic device!
12 constellations of I, the ecliptic.
A zodiac. I am the zodiac!

Inside my body is ancient.
There, a hundred towers stand.
My internal organs, an ideal city.
In the graveyard, church, abbey.

The eyeball of Earth.
An example of motion.
The intellectual organ of stone.
A dynamic constellation.
The incomplete embryo.
Death’s mystery.
Theaters, hospitals, museums.

Manmade flesh. The grotta. The labyrinth.
Illusory construct. Marble.
Manmade clocks. Bells. Springs.
Whirling round and round. Counting time.

From the ancient cities to me…
Ending on that day, the 24-hour clock.
The sun showing at noon…
...and at night, the moon.
Our natural 24-hour clock.

Bong, bong! Ding-dong-ding!
Bong, bong! Ding-dong-ding!

The city of flesh, the mystery of the clock.
Geometric law, rigid construction.
Monotony, eternity.
Present, permanence.
The truth of all creation,
unending sameness.
Infinite variety.

I will take the form of the city of the human body.
I shall take the form of the broken clock.

City, clock, discovery!
City, clock, revelation!
City, clock, annihilation!

[Verthandi]
Gertzen's Head
Translation by Verthandi

Gertzen's head,
Gertzen's head,
Ice country, a grand operation,
Gertzen's head!

Lungs in the darkness of a vial,
The frozen eyeball - the tendons
Are revived, while resurrection medicine
Repeats progress
Unintentionally.

Bringing forth existence,
Regenerating parts,
To be revived --
My experiment was a success!


[Ayu Ohseki]
Herzen's Head
Translation by Ayu Ohseki

Herzen's head 
Herzen's head 
‭A major operation in the icy land 
O Herzen's head

Lungs of bottled darkness 
And frozen eyeballs and tendons 
Are resurrected, while the revival medicine 
Repeats its progress 
‭At last

Life manufactured
‭Partial regeneration 
‭The resurrection experiment 
Was a success

[Verthandi]
The Inversion of Me and My Room
Translation by Verthandi

The umbilical cord, the rope that symbolizes life,
is the cosmic swing at the end of the cosmos
That cord, furiously swinging,
By the recoil, dances through space
The body revolves once in a somersault
I am of the great darkness that passes over rooftops,
The reverse of me in a single leap

The inverted, cheap apartment and
Two worlds; beyond written record
What is awakening? Only the cord
A grand rotation in the city skies!

Bye-bye, bye-bye, bye-bye, bye-bye, good-bye to whom?
Bye-bye, bye-bye, bye-bye, bye-bye, good-bye-bye to me!
-


[Ayu Ohseki]
Me and My Room, Upside-Down
Translation by Ayu Ohseki

A living rope like an umbilical cord 
Is a universe swing at the end of the universe 
If that rope is shaken hard 
The recoil will make Space dance 
My body turns one somersault 
I cross the rooftops 
And leap over my dark side in a single bound

The peaceful apartment turned upside-down, and 
Two worlds, outside of books 
Asking the rope what will happen next 
A giant rotation in the city's sky!

Bye bye bye bye -- goodbye to whom? 
Bye bye bye bye -- goodbye to me
Good-bye bye!

[UTP Translation]
Virtual Star Embryology (Closing)
Translation by Robert Paige &
          Utena Translation Project (1998)

Ancient times, perfect, solitude in the desert
Air, atoms, the planet of causality

Yes, a native child
Conception
The embryo of philosophy

And 
Lunar Heaven, Mercurial Heaven, Venusian Heaven
Solar Heaven, Martian Heaven, Jovian Heaven
Saturnian Heaven, Sidereal Heaven, Motive Heaven

Further circular infinity without end
A kind of organic engine
A kind of perpetual motion device
Ah, lost motion 
I'm a lost motion


[Nozomi (Official)]
Virtual Star Embryology (Closing)
Official Translation
          Nozomi DVD Release (2011)

Ancient times. Perfection. Isolation in the desert.
Atmosphere. Atom. Causality star. 

Yes, a child of earth is 
conceived.
The embryo of philosophy. 

And then 
lunar heaven! Mercurian heaven. Venusian heaven. 
Solar heaven. Martian heaven. Jovian heaven. 
Saturnian heaven. Stellar heaven. Motive heaven.

And then... The endless surface of the torus.
A single organic mechanism.
A single perpetual motion machine.
Ah, it is empty movement. Just empty movement. Empty...

Since no one at present has translated these liner notes, this is the Japanese text, which I would be very happy to replace with a translation should anyone like to do that! E-mail me at giovanna[at]ohtori.nu! I used an OCR reader for this, then compared it against the original, but if something makes zero sense, check the scans of the text further down for the original. (Until then, Google Translate will give you a sort of usable translation of this one!)

十四歳の頃、僕は学校が嫌いだった。いや、正確には、学校という名の世界での自分の状況が嫌いだった。 その頃は、いわゆる“校内暴力”なるものが全国的に取り沙汰されていた時期で、僕の通ってい た学校も例に漏れず相当に荒んでいたと思う。生徒が教師の胸ぐらをつかみ上げ授業中断、など ということも珍しいことではなかった。学校とは箱庭ではあるが、言うまでもなく「ひとつの社会」で あり「現実社会のミニチュア」だ。その社会の中で、僕は凡庸な者だった。休み時間にトイレでタバ コを吸う勇気も、教師の胸ぐらをつかむ勇気もなかった。そして、僕はそのことが嫌で仕方がなかっ た。子供だったが、凡庸が美徳だなんてウソだってことぐらいは知っていた。「ミニチュアの社会」の 中ですら凡庸な自分に控えている未来。凡庸な人生の予感に言い様のない絶望を感じていた。 —あれから十数年。現実は残酷で、やはり僕は凡庸なる大人になってしまった。絶対に裏切って

はいけない人を、何人も裏切ってしまった。そうまでして手に入れたのが、凡庸なる自らの姿だった。 だが、いかなる夢も見ることを禁じられたこの世界で、僕はまだ密かに夢を見ている。まだ密かに

モラトリアムでありたいと甘えている。そのことを「少女革命ウテナ」はうまく表現できただろうか…。
