Once she loved a boy. But he did not love her.
His name was Jun. Disillusioned she tried to forget.
So she left everything & traveled to the other side of the world.
But life was like a dream.
A series of meaningless movement.

And then by chance she met you & your brother.
The moment she saw you.
She knew you were made for her.
You're never out of her thoughts. She sees only you.

If it was yesterday he'd felt free just like her.
He could have been with her.
But today can't be anymore.
Tomorrow maybe yes. But today he is not there.

I heard someone say
That mind keeps wondering from desire to contempt
From contempt to desire
Never ever feeling bored. Cause we think we are free.
I think it's so pathetic. Don't you ?
Were you listening to me. No not even one word.

I heard someone say that mind keeps wondering
Life is like a dream.
A series of meaningless movement.
I heard someone say let's go to the other world
Because we think we are free.
A series of meaningful movement.

La La La ~

    General CommentThis song is quite autobiographical. (It's funny no one pointed that out!)

    "her" seems to be Kazu, she's talking about herself. She went to the other side of the world (New York) because of someone else, and then she met Amedeo and Simone (you and your brother).. Then she fell in love. The rest of the story is pretty self-explainatory.

    I love the second half of the lyrics. She's saying "ok, I came from the other side of the world, cos' I thought I was free. It's so pathetic! Life is like a dream, a series of meaningless movemets.. or were they actually meaningful?"

    I love it. I actually love the lyrics a lot more than the music itself.

    General CommentI just love this song. Has anyone ever noticed that when you read the song titles on the back of the album melody of certain damaged lemons some of the song titles makes a sentence? "This is not A cure For the damaged Mother"? I cant help thinking that there is a connection between these songs.

    General CommentThat is interesting, interaktiv - I had noticed the connection of "this is not a cure" but never thought about the rest.

    This song is so great for so many reasons. Musically it's brilliant, of course, but the instrumentation is so cheesy you just have to love it. And the lyrics are great too.
    "I heard someone say
    The mind keeps wandering from desire to contempt
    From contempt to desire
    Never ever feeling bored. Cause we think we are free.
    I think it's so pathetic. Don't you ?"
    this is such good stuff.
