"The Song That is Everywhere", Ninomiya Kazunari
trans. Kaiten Soshi

I can’t see the difference between right and wrong*
You said, “Everything’s alright!”
Those words are making me disappear
and that’s what I’m the most afraid of.

Shout it with all your might,**
“I’m here!” as proof.
We’re not that weak. But we’re not that strong either.
So it’s alright if we cry.
There’s nothing to be embarrassed about.
It’s something that only people with a future can do.
It’s a sign to move on.

I cry, wish, fall down, cry again.
You grew up, afraid of getting hurt.
You’ve always been holding back your tears and
Stopped being able to smile.

When I realized it, I was alone and afraid.
It was that time that your voice that reached out to me,
so gentle that it hurt, and I cried.***
“You’re such a crybaby,” you told me.
It found easy for me to say, “You too,” and we/I laughed.
Don’t say that it’s “nostalgic”, the way we joke around.
I want to grab the present that is here and now.

Look!  Breathe in and out, we’re alive.
Taking it step by step, that’s all we need to do.
It’ll be okay. We’ll be here, always.
Just let it all out**** and stand proud.
Because that’s us.
Always and forever.

General note: As with most of Nino’s songs, I’m not sure if he’s speaking or if he’s speaking on behalf of someone…

*It literally says “What’s right? What’s wrong?”
** Literally means “Shout it with all my life/energy”
*** I need to rephrase this better.
****Some lyrics point that it’s ’さらけだして” which is basically “lay it all bare”. I heard it as “叫だして”, “shout it all out”. 

Original Lyrics

「どこにでもある唄」    二宮和也

「なにか 正解で
なにか 間違いで
だから 大丈夫、なんて」
消してくから それが一番怖いことだから

僕はそんな弱くわない でも強くもないから
だから泣いて いいんだ

泣いて 求めて
転んで また泣いて
ずっと泣くの 我慢してたら笑えなくなってた

気づいたら ひとりになって

楽になってた 笑ってた

懐かし なんで言わないで今を
そこにある 今を握りしめて

ほら 息を
吸って 吐いて
生きている 一歩 一歩
歩いている ただそれだけでいい

大丈夫 僕らは ずっとここにいるよ
だから すべて 叫出してみて
さあ 胸を張って言えばいいんだ

ずっと ずっと ずっと

Lyrics for my own reference, because it's so hard to find them!

THYME'S Fly Away (Japanese) )

I love this song a whole lot. It's my song of the moment! I'll probably find some time to translate it to ease myself into Japanese practice. This is the song that I listen to when I'm feeling down - it picks me up immediately. I am in love with the guitar riffs and it's like, oh so catchy with it's upbeat and cheerful vocals. <3

Ranks up there with my Ultimate Favourite Songs. (But I doubt anyone dethrone Konstantine as the epic winrar!)
spiderpig: (kandou suru)
I'm listening to Disney soundtracks and besides the soundtrack to the Little Mermaid, I love Bella Notte from Lady and the Tramp.

Oh this is the night, it's a beautiful night
And we call it bella notte
Look at the skies, they have stars in their eyes
On this lovely bella notte.
Side by side with your loved one,
You'll find enchantment here.
The night will weave its magic spell,
When the one you love is near!
Oh this is the night, and the heavens are right!
On this lovely bella notte!

One More Time, One More Chance / 山崎まさよし )

秒速5センチメートル just arrived in the mail while I was catching up on some much needed rest. (I can't burn out before school's even started!) Just finished watching all three parts of the short movie and I'm moved beyond words. I'll have to watch this again. And again.
spiderpig: (Default)


English translation of the whole song. )

I really love this song with many levels of awesome, not only the lyrics but also the kickass bass-line which makes me want to grab a bass and just rock out. The English lyrics seem kind of meh and corny but it sounds much better in its original Japanese form. Really. Believe me.

I think I should continue with my Pre-Advanced classes but oh well. After my Uni timetable gets settled.

Levelling up in Granado Espada is taking longer than expected, but it's better than nothing. Afterall, I only got this lovely PC just yesterday. I need to think of a name for it. I have a weird habit of naming things. My ex-iPod's called weaksauce!; the thumbdrives are called oedipus, nirvana and lithium... I need to name this PC. So that it's mine. Something that belongs to me.

I suppose, when you name something, you put some of your soul into the object and you leave a part of yourself behind. (My old old old PC was called Denki :D() )
Then I suppose, because I named you my Mr Kurtz, my whole soul got lodged into your being.
Mmm hmmm. Going to grab the PS2 and hook it up later because I need my console gaming fix. I've been a console gamer since the SNES days when I used to duke it out on Street Fighter and lol TMNT.

This journal needs to beef up the intellectual levels. I feel rather dodgy as of late but I guess me starting to write again bodes well.
spiderpig: (): emo)
My current favourite song of the moment. Regina Spektor has very haunting tunes, but this one is just heart and gut wrenching. (Oedipus is also another good one!)

"Samson" by Regina Spektor

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth
I have to go, I have to go
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
He ate a slice of wonder bread and went right back to bed
And history books forgot about us and the bible didn't mention us
And the bible didn't mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the stars came fallin' on our heads
But they're just old light, they're just old light
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson came to my bed
Told me that my hair was red
Told me I was beautiful and came into my bed
Oh I cut his hair myself one night
A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light
And he told me that I'd done alright
And kissed me 'til the mornin' light, the mornin' light
And he kissed me 'til the mornin' light

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of wonderbread and went right back to bed
Oh, we couldn't bring the columns down
Yeah we couldn't destroy a single one
And history books forgot about us
And the bible didn't mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first

I get terribly melancholic, sad, weepy, tears streaming down my face sort of crazy depressed when I listen to this song. It's so terribly sad. Everyone pities Samson, but has anyone thought about Delilah's position? It's poignant.

Wikipedia states that the song is about a fictional woman who was Samson's lover before Delilah. Well, uh okay but I'd liek to still think that this is Delilah in the song.

In other news, I had a rather shitty day at work again, but I'm getting used to it (since I'm leaving anywaaaay) and like I've said, I've got something in my head to beat the blues away.

Otherwise, hurrah for Threadless tees! I'll be having one or two new ones soon because there is an awesome shirt that is dying to be bought by geek me.
spiderpig: (i'll use my gun on you)
Dice - Finley Quaye & William Orbit )

I think I've disappated myself into far too many people and far too many things.

It's high time I give my userpics a fresh dose of babazation. Like the proverbial 'changing of a new leaf' (which reminds me of the whole Veggie Prize Presentation Ceremony at the NLB).

Speaking of that, I have a $30 vouchers to an Upper Serangoon Veggie Restaurant - it's supposedly good. Anyone from school wants to go and sample some haute veggie cuisine? So far vegetarian food has equalled to oily and uh, more oil (probably to add more uh, oily taste) so I'm hoping that this will convince me to not eat chickens, cows, porks (you know I mean pigs) and elephants.

But really, I think that I lost out my monetary prizes because I wrote about PYTHAGORAS and ROSSEAU. Like seriously if anyone wrote an essay with them in it, I'll give them all the money I had - not food vouchers. So what point are you trying to make? That the eggplant I'm eating is my great-great-grand-uncle from Honolulu?

Good Lord, I lost 7th place to this other Alicia Tan and other cash-prizes to omfg WEIRDOS lah. There were only like, me and two other people who were NORMAL PEOPLE. But then again, the winners of cash prizes all wrote the same old cliched thing about how you shouldn't eat animals because its cruel. Goddamnit we know its cruel! You're bloody killing things! But man was created by God to eat meat for a reason. The world loves boring, same-old-same-old writers.

Eh. School was alright. GP was uhhh, I guess it was okay because while the group got whacked all sides by JTan (even she admitted it), she was okay with it lah. So I'm quite uh, heck-care about it within the limits she set me a.k.a wtf directing the course of the discussion. We should just let Mr-Think-Damn-Fast-Super-Brain make up all the evidences for us. :D()()()
spiderpig: (;___;)
I guess it's something like a piece of cutlery from the microwave. It's so painfully hot, yet I don't want to let go. Sometimes it goes crashing to the ground, and at othertimes, I get something else to numb all the pain. To ignore the stinging hotness that's still somewhat prevailing through the walls that I've put up to protect myself. To protect that plate from falling.

Enough about that, on to band fest. In conclusion, the majority of RJ girls are hot stuff and ACJC guys rank up there as well. 'lest some of them read this and have their already inflated egos blown up a little more, let me say that my eyes are very easily satisfied in terms of man-woman aesthetics.

The past two days have been extremely and overtly tiring. No qualms about sleeping at 10 or 11 for the past few days because hell, the endless practices leave me ragged. By the time sectionals is over, I don't have the energy to play anymore, and the mini-recharge at the canteen doesn't help. It sucks being a wind-player, a baritone saxophonist at that, when times like this strike. I've been emptying out phenomenal amounts of saliva from my saxophone. Which probably means that I haven't been pushing myself during CJband practices. HAHAH I'M A SLACKER.

I finally have a conversation of sorts with the tenors in my section. (The altos remain out of my reach. Literally.) It invovled my saliva cloth in my bell and I'm leaving it at that. BUt glad that I got to talk to them a bit. :D They're girls you know. So now at least I can comfort myself with the fact that I'm er, not that unfriendly towards members of the opposite same sex.

We didn't practice Sea Songs yesterday. Which is both good and bad for me. I totally suck at the stacattoed running notes but shit I don't get to practice them real-time! Hahah. Oh well.. LTT seems to be confident that we can do it. Not like the audience can tell if we messed up a bit. I still get a rush when I play Noah's Ark. Especially when we're approaching movement two? MCP-ish of me but I like the fact that wow. I can actually play it. The practicing has made me able to actually reach my low B-flats and As nearly on time now. But as the RJ bass clarinetist pointed out, I have a tendency to come in half a beat later. O: He's nice lah, for pointing out my mistakes and giving me pointers on how to correct them. People like that are genuinely nice, in my opinion. They give you a solution, rather than some assholes who just point out random mistakes and look smug about it. Luckily I haven't met anyone like that here. I still have a problem with the D-sharp to B-flat part because the friggin keys are hard to manuever. :\ Need to solve it by 730pm Monday because Sparke band's the first to go up.

SADLY. This tubist is now playing The Storm part with me and the bassoonist. D:!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAHAH. My ego has been like deflated. But then again its good. My slight tendency to not play notes would be damn obvious if the tubist wasn't playing. Still...

Games on the second day was okeh lah. I got to miss a bit of it (YAY) because Sir sent me on a wild goose chase after a Harp score. Chaperones got it mixed up. :\ Stupid lah. Marianne and me were totally lost in NTU. It was so funny lah, walking up and down and never finding the chaperone's room.

THERE WERE NO GAMES YESTERDAY. Can anyone say Happy Happy Joy Joy? We just got some concert briefing which I uh, didn't understand with all the arrows showing up where we entered and exit. I'll just blindly follow those people who have some clue.

I'm going to miss Mr Oura. Dr LTT is another thing. I liked him until he insulted Marc. No one insults a fellow CJC-ian! Especially my librarian! Only Sir can tell him how boring he is! Who is Dr LTT to say that! Annoying biatch. On the card for Oura, I drew a kani-nabe (XDXDXD) and wrote in childish Japanese: CJC「おうら先生、ありがとう。すごく楽しいです。」と言うです。I think I wrote that. I can't remember what I wrote. For LTT I wrote a large "WE WILL PLAY LIKE WE'RE IN LOVE". Stupid man lah. :\

Had a nice time talking to Angel yesterday in/on/at/onboard (hahaha) the MRT yesterday. :)

Good Old Fashion Lover Boy - Queen

I can dim the lights and sing you songs full of sad things
We can do the tango just for two
I can serenade and gently play on your heart strings
Be your Valentino just for you

Ooh love - Ooh Loverboy
What're you doin' tonight, hey boy -
Set my alarm, turn on my charm
That's because I'm a good old-fashioned loverboy

Ooh let me feel your heartbeat (grow faster, faster)
Ooh Ooh let me feel your love heat
Come on and sit on my hot-seat of love
And tell me how do you feel right after-all
I'd like for you and I to go romancing

Say the word - your wish is my command
Ooh love - Ooh loverboy
What're you doin' tonight, hey boy
Write my letter
Feel much better
I'll use my fancy patter on the telephone
When I'm not with you
I think of you always
I miss you -
(I miss those long hot summer nights)
When I'm not with you
Think of me always
I love you - Love you

Hey boy where do you get it from
Hey boy where did you go?
I learned my passion in the good old fashioned school of loverboys-
Dining at the Ritz we'll meet at nine precisely
I will pay the bill, you taste the wine
Driving back in style, in my saloon will do quite nicely
Just take me back to yours that will be fine (Come on and get it)

Ooh love, Ooh loverboy
What're you doin' tonight, hey boy -
Everything's all right
Just hold on tight -
That's because I'm a good old fashioned loverboy

I know I've put this up before, either here or my now defunct blog. My ideal birthday present on crack would be getting any random bandguy to come up to me and sing that ala Freddy Mercury. <3s

Less Than Jake - I Think I Love You  )

Just at the beginning of this year I said to myself, "I'm not going to turn into one of those typical teens who plaster their blogs with song lyrics. Looks like I'm going back on my word. But I can't help it. The song lyrics I put up usually strike a chord so.. echoic that it's just plain scary sometimes.

This shall be the song played at my funeral because I will forever stay in the shadows. So people who will outlive me, play this, Wingstock and Drops of Jupiter during my wake. I'll bless you with uh, 4-D numbers.

I went out with my class today for probably the second time this year, the first being at Gelare where we sat and talked about TAMPONS. Hurhur. My class is fun no doubt about that. It's just sad that I might not be seeing all of them next year. Now just forget the fact that I bought a top at Topshop with all of them. HOW SENTIMENTAL. I'd just like to say that I really had a lot of good times, and bad times with all of you T04, I appreciate every single moment of it.

Tomorrow's GMUFC DAY! w00t! I haven't gone out with my besties hurghfriends for what seems like forty days and forty nights (okay lah, longer than that). And I should be studying. No not for Chinese AOs (I don't take it X3). I'm being a nerd y'see.

Stomach upset.

EDIT: <3 Hana Yori Dango Dorama is out in Japan. Have I ever mentioned how I want to marry Domyoji? <3<3<3 This is like why, Lee and I get along well.

Oh yes. I forgot to mention that someone is going to be very shocked sometime tomorrow or on Monday. >;D

JIMMY EAT WORLD - If You Don't, Don't Lyrics

What's wrong baby, don't they treat you like they should?
Did you take 'em for it?
Every penny that you could?
We once walked out on the beach and once I almost touched your
Oh how I dreamed to finally say such things then only to

Don't you know I'm thinkin', drivin' 405 past midnight.
You know I miss you.
Don't you know that I miss you?
Ninth and Ash on a Tuesday night.
I would write to you from a museum mile, toast to you:
your whisper, your smile.
Up the stairs at the Weatherford, a ghost each place I hide.
If you don't don't know, why would you say so?
Would you mean this please if it happens?
If you don't know, why would you say so?
Won't you get your story straight.
If you don't know, honey, why'd you just say so?
And I need this now more than I ever did.
If you don't well, honey, then you don't.
I left you waiting, at the least could we be friends?
Should have never started, ain't that the way it always ends?
On my life I'll try today, there's so much I've felt I should
say, but.
Even if your heart would listen, doubt I could explain.
If you don't don't know, why'd you say so?
Would you mean this please if it happens?
If you don't know, why would you say so?
Won't you get your story straight.
If you don't know, honey, why'd you just say so?
Cause I need this now more than I ever did.
If you don't well, honey, then you don't.
So here we are now, a sip of wine a sip of water.
Someday maybe, maybe someday we'll be smarter.
And I'm sorry that I'm such a mess, I drank all my money could
get and,
took everything you let me have and then I never loved you back.
If you don't don't know, why would you say so?
Would you mean the please if it happens?
If you don't know, why would you say so?
Won't you get your story straight?
If you don't know, honey, why'd you just say so?
Cause I need this now yeah need this, need this.
If you don't well, honey, then you don't
And if you don't well, honey, then you don't
If you don't know, honey, honey, then you don't.

I feel like I'm still asleep. The same way I did when I openly tried to pass Rachel a huge blue sanitary pad amidst boys. Haha.

Can a heart still break once its stop beating?

Went out with Ame and Ama today to watch Corpse Bride!! Yay. <3 for Burton, Elfman and Depp.

I've got photocopying to do. Bah Humbug.

Last.Fm has been introducing me to the best songs ever. Like Gratitude's Drive Away )

This is my favourite line of the whole song, "help me to notice how we're different different different and all right".

Tomorrow will be Ame's birthday dinner at Kenny Rogers after a long day in the band room preparing for the tune-in/open house.

I heard LB, Melvin and WS jam today in the band room. Not bad. I look forward to Saturday.

I just wanted to say one thing. It's one thing to be an elitist snob about music then say that you can't appreciate some kinds of music. I do admit that I honestly can't stand techno but I'm not snobbish about it.

It's music, hello?
spiderpig: (Default)
After tomorrow it'll all be over. It just depends what. My exams will be over for now, my JC career might be over, my life might be over, the days where I run around school in a frenzy may be over, my inspiration may be over.

Life's unpredictability is mindblowing.

I don't want to leave full of regrets.

The picture of GMUFC is on the wall, 9 girls smiling at me. It's like covalent bonding, there's intermolecular forces in between all of us. I'd like to think that we'll still be connected by that weak-strong-weak-strong bond. What was it called? Van der Waals?

I like punk-emo and emo overall, but I also love my fair share of pop-rock. Haha. One of my favourite songs of the moment:Just the Girl by The Click five )

I've been ransacking my piano-chair, in between Econs revision, looking for all my old scales and arpeggios books in order to like prepare for the stupid proficiency test this Saturday. I CANNOT GET INTO MY HEAD WHAT DOMINANT AND DIMINISHED SEVENTHS ARE. D: I know that I know but... what am I doing. ECONS NOW.


It was raining last night/early yesterday morning and the thundering and the heavy sound of the rain crashing against the concrete outside was


I woke up halfway and wondered if I should've closed the window, because I was afraid the rain would get in. Then I just closed my eyes and wnet back to sleep because I was too tired why change perfection?

you're the perfect imperfection.
spiderpig: (;___;)
when it all comes down to that

The Blue came washing over you, over us
Sweeping away the sky, the earth,
the body.

But your Soul is still there, lingering.
Prevailing 'midst the watery graves
between the crying, chao, catastrophe.

The Red is still flowing,
Look up to the stars and see hope.
Uncoil the night sky
Lay it down to sleep.

In other news, I can't wait to move out. Or rather, I think my parents can't wait until I move out. BAH. Finished 'studying' for my Economics test. That is to say, I read through my darling Sloman, but haven't touched the Godly TYS yet.Oh well. On to tackle BNW (which will take more time than it should because I'll be procrastinating) and Tollet's Winter Song. Which, by the way quoting PChua, "is a love poem!". Uhhh thank you for the enthusiasm, PChua. I'd prefer a poem about death or drugs or any other thing right now.

Good luck to all the J2s who are preparing to do battle (LOL) with the Prelims tomorrow. Hopefully I'm going to be in the same mind-wrenching predicament next year, so I wish you all luck and Godspeed.

Oh em gee, it sounds like I'm treating you all like dead people when it should be ME lying in the coffin instead!

Girl From Katong )

I want to re-word that song, but then it'd be like WOAH PUNCH IN YER FACE obvious. D: Anyway, I'll probably go re-write it for like the guys in band like The Guy From Bishan or the Guy from Yishun or The Girl from Bishan or The Girl from Ang Mo Kio. HAHA.


EH Wen Seng! You make me sound like I NEVER study! Tsk tsk! I just so happen to multi-task very well okay? Now you know why I don't do well HAHA JOKING LAH.
spiderpig: (;___;)
He's just the boy I'm looking for

OMG. LOOK AT MY TITLE. I think it sounds like a brilliant song title. Hello on A Saturday. Okay. I'll go compose lyrics or something like that and when I get GarageBand, I'll compose a tune! Ignore me, please.

I've been fiddling with my new phone the whole day, in between trying to absorb all the South East Asian history content that my puny brain can soak up. Uhh hello? I've been getting Cs so I guess I have no reason to FAIL NOW SHOULD I? So,


I have also, no reason to fail my promotional exams.

(As you notice, these posts are all random posts to reassure myself.)

Yesterday's maintenence during band was energy sapping. I spent over an hour just trying to polish my baritone saxophone, but to no avail. It's shinier, but the spots won't go off. Bleargh. Then Marc and I catalogued the library until the letter M, which is no mean feat! Thanks to Chengyi, Hazel and Weixin who were very much needed help. I swear the Flute Section work too hard and fast. Even LB was like "WOAH SLOW DOWN". Harhar. But yay, the seemingly endless job of cataloging is halfway done.

After that, I sorta moped around because the guys found a horrible dried LIZARD (omfgwtfbbq) and a silverfish. What is it with guys and creepy crawlies? Silverfish I'm not scared of but omfgggggg the lizard was appalling. I didn't scream, but I certainly kept my distance from it. *shudders* I never want to see it again.

Spent the rest of the time helping to polish the trombones and grease the horn slides and of course slacking around. We (me, Marianne, Angel, Singyi, Anne, Charles, Kevin, Wee Min, Jeremy, Chengyi) went to Orchard to eat and after walking back and forth between Scotts and Far East, we finally settled down at Subway to eat. YAY MEATBALL SUB! Wee Min nearly died eating his one inch (sorry, in-joke) sub. Charles had a strange fascination with his asparagus soup and uh, made a connection with it and Harry Potter. Anne was disgusted by Charles' apple and so and so forth. It was fun! :)

And I now know who Angel's eyecandy is. Ho ho ho. wahlau, why does everyone know who i like!?

Memph. My Japanese Intermediate 1 class starts tomorrow. I'm kinda lazy about it, but I can't wait for it too. I'm praying to get Yoshioka-sensei again. She's SO CUTE. HAHA.

Alright. Back to being imperialised by Western Imperialism. Damn it! I'm not a natural resource!

EDIT: AW CRAP. I broke my glass pendant again! I'm so ill-fated with these things. I lost my first one in the Esplanade, and this new one's cracked in too. WTF LARH. ;____;

There's no more super-glue left.

This is a sign. I swear it is.

Clownfish, angler,
Of all the fish in the sea,
I picked you.
