Track Name: What's Happening
WHAT'S HAPPENING

(Music and lyrics by Ananda Jacobs)


I was in your eyes
the moment I began to see
irrelevant worlds disappear suddenly

the elements in tune
atomic levels would align
recalling the days when you were mine
___

We were parting ways
the moment that I lost my mind
numbing in ways that are still undefined

annulling what is right
how could we ignore the sign
breaking the bonds of what's surely divine

___

I fail to see what's happening
I've reached the end of the line
so I cry and I scream and I shout aloud
but I can't reach you

__

Dreaming or alive
the state I'm in is hard to say
the surest of feelings has long gone away

inconsequential things
became a part of who we are
the onus of love having moved so far

___

I can't help what I've become now
and it's hard to try to change

but I know that buying time is not for certain
I hope to find the way before

___

I fail to see what's happening
I've reached the end of the line
so I cry and I scream and I shout aloud
but I can't reach you

___

Now I ask for you to please forgive me
for who i've been because

I fail to see what's happening
I've reached the end of the line
so I cry and I scream and I shout aloud
but I can't reach you
Track Name: Always You
ALWAYS YOU

(Music and lyrics by Ananda Jacobs)


it was always you
only you
i feel the same as i did then
my love for you won’t end
always you

it was always you
everyone knew
i flee to save my life but when
my love for you returns
it burns down all the walls and i fall again
now it’s coming around again

could you feel how hard i cried those nights, those days, and in between?
can’t you see that i love you so, but the timing’s hurting me?
the life i made does not include you, i know not what is true
if i’ve moved on then please forgive me, i know not what i do

but without you
what can i do?

it was always you
everyone knew
i plead insane and leave but when
my love for you returns
it burns down all the walls and i fall again
and it’s coming around again

could you feel how hard i cried those nights, those days, and in between?
can’t you see that i love you so, but the timing’s hurting me?
the life i made does not include you, i know not what is true
if i’ve moved on then please forgive me, i know not what i do

but without you
what can i do?

(it’s alright, i’m over it
i only need you now and forever)

could you feel how hard i cried those nights, those days, and in between?
can’t you see that i love you so, but the timing’s hurting me?
you told me with your silence how i must get over you
i finally did and now you’re back, oh god what should i do?
wait for me, i’ll see you again when this life here is through
confirming what i felt before and now i know is true:
it could only be you…
and only you…
it was always you
Track Name: You Feel Nothing
YOU FEEL NOTHING

(Music by Ananda Jacobs
English lyrics by Ananda Jacobs / Japanese words by Shoken)


faultless in wordless vows, you falter in waking life
and wander, veiled, in vain

in summer eve’s confining spell
you find you try to have it all,
through failing eyes you’re hiding from that final sigh
__

then you wake, and feel nothing
still the same, only nothing
to deny that it’s over

and you don’t know how you should feel
when you know that nothing is real

おぼろに見え隠れする月の光が淡くするいつもの道路
あの角右に曲がれば目当ての場所がある、そんな匂いと温度
邪魔をする記憶と経験
世界は誰よりも冷静
何故と思うその瞬間理由があるのに
弱いから左の道を選ぶのでしょう
__

skies press on warring boughs of cypress
in lowering clouds that bind
you find you’re bound inside it all

you’re lost inside the flame
flying high into space,
through an endless life
perennial shining lights fill your mind
__

then you wake, and feel nothing
still the same, only nothing
to deny that it’s over

and you don’t know how you should feel
when there’s nothing in the world that’s real

no, you don’t know how to be real
when there’s nothing left that you can feel

空には何かあった
少し前まで確かだった
誰かが言う「お前は変わった」
あるがままは答えじゃなかった
まぶたを風が払った
かすかに彼は笑った
まばたきまで合わさった
そして胸の奥で何かが固まった
目の前に広がる景色はそのまま全て開かれた手引きさ
ゼロならゼロでそれも平気さ
この世界をこの手で一つの絵にしたいんだ
