Albatross

Lyrics By Mel Ushikubo and Music by Hiroaki Kato

All may be gone and lost,
No reason left to hope.
I am alone and forgot,
By the shores of the stones.

But I remember everything we were,
we were living for.
So I wait not knowing,
If I am real or not.

There may be something left,
A reason to hold hope.
Some day a ship returns,
To the shores of the stones.

So I remember everything we were,
We were living for.
And I wait not knowing,
If I am a fool or not.

Once in a dream,
We lived as many kings and queens.
Our days filled with laughter,
Our love and pride, ever after.
A change in the seas,
A current deep and dark underneath.
Our days of freedom end.

Into the sea, to the sky, into the blood,
Of who we once were.
There is just no other way out.

Stand. Standing alone.
Holding our home,
To find what you miss.
I will hold the edge of all that is left,
Of our legacy.

Once in a dream,
We lived as many kings and queens.
Our days filled with laughter,
Our love and pride, ever after.
A change in the seas,
A current deep and dark underneath.
Our days of innocence end.

Into the sea, to the sky, into the blood,
Of who we once were.
There is just no other way out.

Stand. Standing alone.
Holding our home,
To find what you miss.
I will hold the edge of all that is left,
Of our legacy.

Of our legacy.

Overtime (I quit!)

By Mike Dejong and Mel Ushikubo

It’s ten pm again
I’m slaving at my desk
I wonder, what it’s like outside.
There’s no end, to this nightmare.
There’s no end, to this grind.

I can’t take it any longer
I don’t recognize my wife
I just sit here getting older
Missing something called my life.

Over over time
I’m going crazy.
Over, over time.
Making money.

Let’s face it I’m a mess
I don’t know if I slept,
I wonder….if I’m gonna die.
There’s no end, to these nomikai.
There’s no end, no end in sight.

I can’t take it any longer
I don’t recognize my wife
I just sit here getting older
Missing something called my life.
