Track Name: Sky, Ocean and Weapons -空と海と兵器-
Clouds are smiling in the sky, in the sky, in the sky, in the sky
Rings of light glitter on the sea, on the sea, on the sea
Silence is carried on the breeze, on the breeze, on the breeze
My eyes are dazzled by the sun, by the sun, by the sun

What do you know in the space between dream and reality?
I’m torn between myself, principles, ideals, and money
“I am you and you are me”; what does that mean?
Just peeking and staring at the inside and outside of human

空には微笑む雲、海の上にはキラキラと光る輪っか
静寂が風によって運ばれ、私の眼は太陽に眩まされる

夢と現実の間で何を知ってる?
自己と主義と理想と金の中、私、揺れ動いている
「君はぼくで、ぼくは君だ」何って言ってる?
ただ目をこらし覗いてみよう、人の中と人の外
Track Name: Perception -知覚-
suddenly cloudy skies come out and cover me
people look scared and it makes me feel sad
somebody says "i wanna die"
he has lost hope but its all right for i know that
the sun is coming, giving us a clear mind
how about having a picnic in the park?

A bell and sadness have gone away
I recovered myself and am as usual
The perfect always runs away
Abandon yearning and come back here again
Rhythm of the end of a sanctuary

maybe we don't really understand our perception
but i believe that everything is impermanent

Staring the world with stillness
Under the sky, stars, and the moon
An amazing view swallows up me!

突然の曇り空がつつみこむ
人々の表情は怯え、私を悲しませる
「死にたい...」と誰かが言う
でも大丈夫、太陽はすぐにくる
太陽は「視界」をクリアにする
公園にピクニックにいこう

さっきまでのベルと悲しみはどこか遠くまでいつもの調子
「完璧」はいつもすぐに逃げる
「憧れ」をすててまたここに戻る
聖域の果てのリズム

多分、私たちは「知覚」についてよく知らないけど、
「全ては無常」ってことは知ってる

「静けさ」とともに世界をみる
目の前の空と星と月の下、
吸い込まれるほどの景色!
Track Name: The Lost Forest -迷いの森-
I always think I can't see in the darkness
I want one light to illuminate the way, illuminate into rapture
When the sun rises, I desire meaning
With a business newspaper in my right hand, and an iPad in my left hand
Someday I, surely I, until I win...
I wish for light…

私いつも思うの暗闇じゃみえない
灯り一つ欲しいの、行き先を照らして、恍惚と照らして
朝日がのぼると、意味が欲しくなるのね
右手日経新聞、左手IPad
いつか私、きっと私、いつか勝つまで...
灯りが欲しいの...
