Track Name: otsuka
melted candles, stuck in place
bitten nails, scratch your face
we could go outside, seize the day
or stay indoors, and waste away
Track Name: kawamura
deep sea diver
early riser
wake mid june
cops on the news

smoke out the window
learn to let go
turn off the tv
see right through me

i need you the most
when i see your ghost
watch over me
fail miserably
Track Name: toru
i watched from your window, i watched the trees grow tall
and i watched them cry their leaves to the ground in the cold

i watched the flames grow, i watched them spread so slow
and i watched them burn down all the rooms of your home

i watched you on hospital bed, i watched you lose hope
and i watched the ground open up to swallow you whole

i watched you in funeral prayer, i watched your ghost
and i watched your reflection on strangers face that i dont know
