Track Name: The Good Man Has No Shape
Through centuries he lived in poverty.
God only was his only elegance.

Then generation by generation he grew
Stronger and freer, a little better off.

He lived each life because, if it was bad,
He said a good life would be possible.

At last the good life came, good sleep, bright fruit,
And Lazarus betrayed him to the rest,

Who killed him, sticking feathers in his flesh
To mock him. They placed with him in his grave

Sour wine to warn him, an empty book to read;
And over it they set a jagged sign,

Epitaphium to his death, which read,
The Good Man Has No Shape, as if they knew.

---Wallace Stevens, 1947
Track Name: Over Snows of Yamato
I feel I've lost my way
The world no longer glows the way it did in times of old
Frayed and worn bare
Alive but losing life, where is the landscape of my youth?
The time is calling now
A season to salvage all you fought and struggled for
We rise up to the land
The land rises up in turn before us, beckoning to come

Time for prayer has come
Beg thy work not to be done

Over the snows of Yamato

(The tincture of your memory
Fleeting immortality
Silver opportunity)

The message that fell from the skies
The welcoming darkness


Upon the ancient heath of Yamato
A thousand thousand snows have fallen once and disappeared
Silent cloak, cold eyes for wisdom
Old garb to gather round me yet again
Furtive pilgrims' traipse
Totems of wood and stone marching up the mountainside
A little to endure, so much left to bear
Mewling beasts in the distance, a fire close at hand
Track Name: 神の餌 (God Fodder)
Raise high the banners of heaven
Inherit the earthly dominion
And hang us from your cross

Merciless servants of Allah
Addicted to death and fear
Annihilate our hope

Chained to a yoke of ideas
Plowing bloody furrows
In an empty field of ash

For god so loved his people
He sent you to fuck us
If we would not kneel

Beholding his glory
When he comes again
Scramble and beg for his favor
In the book of life

Lord of the rapists
Lord of the dead
You're gonna do his will
You're gonna make us pay

A knife to the throat
A kick to the teeth
Upholding the law and the order
Sublime morality

Prithee friends to follow me
And die like dogs in galilee
Or burn in europe's fitful flame
Glory be, shall we live again

At the thought of pain
How they hardly contain themselves
Stains on the banner of conviction

Baleful meal,
Perpetually chewing the iniquitous
As shit in the mouth of god
(Your ending is wrought)
Track Name: 鐘があなたの名前を鳴る時 (When the Bell Tolls Your Name)
鐘があなたの名前を鳴る時
この世もう二度戻れない
鐘があなたの名前を鳴る時
死人の世界に入るさ

(人間の間
偽者の人生を送る)

朝日は脳を刺す
空の前に引っ張られる
浮かぶ人生の波に
時折飽きる

(探せ
幸の元
恐怖が
導く)

鐘があなたの名前を鳴る時
この世もう二度戻れない
鐘があなたの名前を鳴る時
死人の世界に入るさ

(口から取る
最後の言葉
空の裏の
神々の塔に届く)

夜が訪れる
奇妙な匂い
狩の準備をする

笑ける一群れ
誰も期待しない
影に待つ男

(一ヶ月後
死体は発見された
その時もう
遠く離れた
する理由
はっきり分からない
けれども
結局人生は錯覚
SO COME ON
AND TAKE A FUCKING LIFE)

-----------------------------------------
When the bell tolls your name
You can never return to this world
When the bell tolls your name
You will enter the world of the dead

(Living a false life
among people)

The morning sun pierces my brain
Dragged out before the sky
Sometimes I tire
Of the waves of this floating life

(Search for it
The source of your happiness
Terror shall
Show you the way)

When the bell tolls your name
You can never return to this world
When the bell tolls your name
You will enter the world of the dead

(Taking from their mouths
Their last words
I shall reach the tower of gods
Behind the sky)

Nighttime arrives
Peculiar scent
I prepare for the hunt

In the laughing crowds
Nobody expects
The man waiting in the shadows

(One month later
The bodies were discovered
By that time
I had moved far away
I don't know
Why I do it
But after all,
Life is an illusion
SO COME ON
AND TAKE A FUCKING LIFE)
Track Name: As Para-Futures Rise and Fall
In the holy city
There is a mountain
Indeterminate,
Or many mountains?

Stands a monolith
Covered with moss
Or was it a gate
Rotten and falling to shreds?

Some object
Intermediary
Between soil and structure

Arcane inscription
Or some intent conveys
You shall return
With something upon you

When you descend
(From that haunted peak it follows)
When you emerge
(From that heavy vale it comes)

The change is imminent
The change is upon you












Grasping ever ahead
The end has not yet been written
Nor shall we ever behold it
but with clouded eye
And whose life will flash before you
when you die?
And whose life will flash before you
when you die?
