about

Hello, there! I'm very excited to release my first VOCALOID EP and very excited that you'd put aside the cash to purchase it. I truly hope you enjoy and that my future albums will be just as entertaining. Thank you!

True to the name and the headlining song, the EP is a musical delve into the tries of humanity and what we all face on our journeys, one way or another. Though each song does have a personal meaning to me, I think of my lyrics as more generally abstract, so whatever meaning you put to them is just as true as any I put to them.

Full download includes off-vocals.

Track Name: HUMAN
Gumi:

(H, U, M, A, N, N, N, N) x2

.verse 1.
I have lost my skin
Both my lungs
Yet, I stand here with you
Unable to cry
You've taken my eyes

(H, U, M, A, N) x2

I have lost my grin
Legs undone

I'm broken down, and so I ask

.chorus.
Am I still human?
If all of myself is gone but soul?
What am I if all my pieces fade away?
Am I just a hole?
(H, U, M, A, N)
My mind is flatlining
For comfort I'm pining
(H, U, M, A, N)
Our garden is dying
One bud left
I still have no resolve

.verse 2.
Now my hands are numb
I can't run
How I hid from the lie I know I won't see
Don't tell me goodbye

With gaze I spy
With holes I cry 'til I'm dry
I'll tremble 'til I fly away

Now I've lost my crown, so I ask

.chorus.
Am I still human?
If all of myself is gone but soul?
What am I if all my pieces fade away?
Am I just a hole?
(H, U, M, A, N)
How is it you blind me?
Nine faces behind me
(H, U, M, A, N)
"Is freedom worse finding?"
One heart left, and I regret it all

.break.
And I regret it all...
You only think you're so smart
So, just keep pressing forward.

[instrumental break]

.chorus.
Am I still human?
If all of myself is gone but soul?
What am I if all my pieces fade away?
Am I just a hole?
(H, U, M, A, N)
My mind is flatlining
For comfort I'm pining
(H, U, M, A, N)
Our garden is dying

Oh, still I ask

Am I still human?
If nothing is left except my name?
What happens when I've no ears to hear the blame?
I can't be ashamed
(H, U, M, A, N)
My pieces are scattered
If nothing still matters,
(H, U--)
Now my mask will shatter who I am...
(H, U, M, A, N) x2

My bones are still

'Hit me', 'Take me', 'Use me'
There's nothing in my mind
They think I'm kind
Then they will know my crimes
But punishment is shallow if you heel
His skin feels...

How much longer can this go on?
What the fuck has happened to me?
Something's gone and I don't want to know what it is.
There's life to live and things to see, so why does it keep haunting me?
I just can't keep going on without him.
[ /verse_4 ]

[ bridge ]
I've lost control of the mainframe
I have no cards left to play
Half of my system has already crumbled

Is this poetic torture?
One seed, but still no orchard
Initiating back-up action,

[ SYSTEM FAILURE ]

'Give up', 'Don't speak', 'Don't lie'
My body is on fire; it's time to burn
No hand
It's still my turn
So, tell me if I've gone too far this time
There's no line

Running, tripping, standing
I guess I just can't fall
This time I'll die if it will make me cry these fleeting, sentimetal human tears
His skin feels...

Track Name: HIGH TIDES
Gumi, Cyber Diva, Fukase:

[VERSE 1]
-FUKASE-
The missing face is come, is gone
Just a ghost is he, hallowed in the frond
The empty fate is just in rot
Not a moment late--death in wander.

The ocean is sober
"We're done, mother, take us under,"
The battle is over
A noble and hateful sunder

When all is gone I'll rest my grind
Shards of myself I soon will find...

[CHORUS]
-ALL-
Don't tell me it's a game
There's no easy one to blame
I'm just knocking all the doors down
High tides...
These eyes they hide

We are children of the waves
There's no easy way to say
We drowned so long ago in High Tides
The sea is mine
(The sea is mine)

[VERSE 2]
-FUKASE-
My lonely day has come undone
Fighting just to breathe
Just to feel the sun
Our humble dreams have pulled their guns
And the winner is: Plastic Hunter

The blue sea, the thunder
A full moon dips from under
The fire will fell her
I know we will surrender
I hope I lose this fight to die
And even so, I still must fight

[CHORUS]
-ALL-
Don't tell me it's a game
There's no easy one to blame
I'm just knocking all the doors down
High tides...
These eyes they hide

We are children of the waves
There's no easy way to say
We drowned so long ago in High Tides
The sea is mine

[BRIDGE]
-GUMI + CYBER DIVA-
Don't give up
(FUKASE: The sea is mine)
It's not time
(FUKASE: The sea is mine)
Please, cut me free
(FUKASE: The sea is mine)
Torment is only folly
(FUKASE: The sea is mine)
Don't give up
(FUKASE: The sea is mine)
It's not time
(FUKASE: The sea is mine)
Please, cut me free
(FUKASE: I've learned that it's never a good day to die)

[CHORUS]
-ALL-
Don't tell me it's a game
There's no easy one to blame
I'm just knocking all the doors down
High tides...
These eyes they hide

We are children of the waves
There's no easy way to say
We drowned so long ago in High Tides
The sea is mine
X2

[END]
-FUKASE-
I sank so long ago in high tides
The sea is mine

The sea is mine
Track Name: In My Head
Gumi:

Looking to the sky
Her arms of ribbons belie

Born am I to this cup
You fill it up again, and again, and again

Persons without name
scratching at the frame
of so-called 'me'

"Are they 'me', and if not, then is she?"
We lie and brag because the truth is missing grief

They tell me, they tell me
I'm young and I'm blind

They tell me, don't paint black
and don't paint red

They tell me, they tell me
I'm out of my mind
But it's all just in my head

The days are slowing down
The moon's become a frown
on the corpse face of time

I know there's not much of me left now
And yet this lonely stare still follows me

And who would hear her out?
The ones with throats of doubt and eyes of shame?

Every hand bore a blade

Cry, stab, rip, maim, inside their vein
they try to find the blame

I just hate the way you stare
(Can't you see,)
And I can't hide when I'm bare
(What we'll be?)
I'm crumbling apart in your hands
(Please tell me,)
Say-say-say it again that you love me
(How to dream)

They tell me, they tell me
I'm young and I'm blind

They tell me, don't paint black
and don't paint red

They tell me, they tell me
I'm out of my mind
But it's all just in my head

(It's all just in my--)
(They tell me, they tell me, they tell me...)
(I'm out of my mi~nd)
(Aaaaaaa)

It's all just in my head.
