1. To Another City



The show was over

People went home

I saw them laughing

But I couldn’t find you

The sound is still echoing in my head

The haloes remain in my eyes

After the party

I saw empty bottles

The morning sun shone upon me

I found myself alone

The sound is still echoing in my head

The haloes remain in my eyes


Another city

Riding on the wagon

Another city

Carried by the wagon


Got tired and fell asleep

I dreamt of you

When I woke up

Didn’t know where I was

The sound is still echoing in my head

The haloes remain in my eyes


Another city

Riding on the wagon

Another city

Carried by the wagon


I’ll pack the suitcase with my vacant heart

And keep this journey going

Someday I'll find my way home

Moving on...


When I find the new city lights

I'll always feel my heart beat

2. Apollo



Rays of light are coming in her room

A speck of dust is dancing in the gloom


Beams are divided in seven colors

That illuminates a photo of her brothers


‘Can I walk out?’ she just wonders

‘Can I see the sun?’ she just wonders


Once he touches her

Snow will start to thaw

Once he smiles at her

Water will start to flow


‘Can I walk out?’ she just wonders

‘Can I see the sun?’ she just wonders


Once he touches her

Snow will start to thaw

Once he smiles at her

Water will start to flow


Rays of light are coming in her room

A speck of dust is dancing in the gloom



     Contrabass - Masato Suzuki (Little Creatures)

3. Dance of the Ants



Climb up the bark of the big tree

You’ll see new leaves on a thin twig

Climb up that rugged surface

You’ll see vermin eating other leaves


Find the route

Where you don’t lose yourself

Sometimes it could be right or could be wrong


Step by step

Step by step

Don’t take your eyes off the lane


You’ll find a brood happily chirping

Or you’ll find a mother bird crying for lost chicks


Find the route

Where you don’t lose yourself

Sometimes it could be right or could be wrong


Step by step

Step by step

Don’t take your eyes off the lane


Try and try and try to find that route

Try and try and try to find that route

Try and try and try to find that route

Try and try and try to find that route

4. Toy Base



I lost my toy base

I played a lot


I lost my spaceship

I played alone


Just looked for them since then

Tried another one every time


I lost my heroes

I talked a lot


I lost my red car

I drove so far


Just looked for them since then

Tried another one every time


Just looked for them since then

Tried another one every time


I lost my toy base

I played a lot


I lost my spaceship

I played alone



     Vocal - Haruko Ohinata

5. Another World



I found a dead spider in the morning

That was a beautiful day, same as yesterday


I heard some tragic news on the radio

That was a serene day, same as yesterday


Imagined the world, I’m not here

Imagined the world, you’re not there


I’m just thinking about such things

Or is there another world for you & me?


Ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh…


Just thinking about such things

Just thinking about you & me

Or is there another world for you & me?


Ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh…



     Electric Bass - Yuji Okiyama

6. A Flying Moth



One night I found a light flickering through the dark forest

I thought I could reach it but it soon disappeared


Then I felt I was falling to the ground

Like a moth flying into the flame


Now grab the torch and light it

I won't miss it this time

Now grip the torch and hold it up

Not to be left again


One night I came across people dancing in the dark

I thought I could join them but they soon disappeared


Then I felt I was falling to the ground

Like a moth flying into the flame


Now grab the torch and light it

I won't miss it this time

Now grip the torch and hold it up

Not to be left again


Stop giving up 

It’s the same nightmare

I want to live in this world and walk with the flame


Now grab the torch and light it

I won't miss it this time

Now grip the torch and hold it up

Not to be left again

I won't miss it this time
