Track Name: smoke
1. [SMOKE]

the heater got me sleepy
bout to zone out
mind is on a journey
brain is worn out
always here in body
mind is always far
trying to get away
somewhere near the star
closer to God
closer to far
my thoughts are with the smoke
my throats about to choke

if only for a moment
heart is always full
with the hearts I've stolen
an asshole
for the people from my home
a kind of hope
a wolf in sheep's clothing
fully worn

smoke the pain away
smoke it all away
smoke the pain away
smoke it all away
Track Name: mado no soto
2. [MADO NO SOTO] *Japanese

窓の外座る猫
燃えてくビルの隣の横
一人で立ってる飛べるかな
飛べなくてもいいかもな

ビルの上立った 僕だけ
一人で考えるじっくり
居たほうがいい?居ないほうがいい?
どっちの方が君のため

ロマンチックじゃない僕だけど
愛してることは本当だよ
だけど君はあの人と
手をつないで歩いてたよ

今夜のベッドは寒すぎる 
暖房をつけても寒すぎる
氷そうで痛む心臓
君の態度も最近COLD
FREEZINGここはまるでアラスカ
だから今夜も眠れない
だから今夜もここにいる
だから今夜も馬鹿をする

振り向かなくてもいいからさ
手だけは振ってよな さよなら
何のために生まれ・死ぬの?
君のためだと思ったよ
間違ってたのは僕じゃない
馬鹿だね 本当に 神様は
こんだけ人がいる地球
だからこそ求める理由

居なくても世界は回ってる
居なくても世界は笑ってる
居なくても世界は狂ってる
居なくても君は笑ってる
Track Name: love letters
3. [LOVE LETTERS] * Japanese

taken by the waves... love letters

love letters in the sand taken by the waves
I don't give a damn I write em anyways
バカみたいなガキのようなlove
熊のようなanimalistic hugs
he say, she say, they say
I don't give a fuck
what anybody say
この愛は心から
new life はこれから
まるでディズニーの roller coaster
人生はアップアンドダウン
山あり谷あり川あり
今は流れるように流れてく
抵抗はしないさ このフィーリング
意味ある出会いだから real meaning

we here now together you and me
just us and this world - crazy
if this love, then nobody can stop it
watch us shine - nobody can top it

we here now together you and me
just us and this world - crazy
if this love, then nobody can stop it
watch us shine - nobody can top it

最初は crush 一目惚れ
party での elegant dress
I said damn, she looks like a Goddess
but the next day you looked kind of human
ノーメイクに ユニクロ Tシャツ
飾らないところが precious
that's when I thought これならチャンスあり
だからシャイでも holla at my future wifey
people say I'm crazy playing with fire
but what I'm feeling is a burning desire
だから come with me to a brand new world
where nothing really matters except you girl

we here now together you and me
just us and this world - crazy
if this love, then nobody can stop it
watch us shine - nobody can top it

we here now together you and me
just us and this world - crazy
if this love, then nobody can stop it
watch us shine - nobody can top it
Track Name: my brotha my friend
4. [MY BROTHA MY FRIEND]

it's survival of the fit only the strong survive
I guess I'm one of the weak cause I'm barely alive
depression got a hold of me, how you doing homey?
I hope you're doing better at least better than me
we grew up on the same streets, shit wasn't pretty
our goal was to get out, not to get pretty
so we hustled to survive we said fuck education
made my mother cry, she said fuck getting paid son
lay down the rails for a better kind of life
but I didn't stop to listen, I was lost in the night
no regrets at the age of thirty six
at least I made it past the age of Tupac and Biggie
what the future holds, nobody knows
but I'm not giving up I'm going for gold
I'd like to know your story my brotha my friend
are you living here in heaven or living in sin

my brotha my friend we gonna be okay
my brotha my friend we know where we've been
my brotha my friend if you ever have a doubt
I'll guide you to the light for a way to get out

a lot of backstabbing mother fuckers I've seen through
but you always showed me love so I got love for you
I heard your moms passed and your brother too
and the last time I seen you you seemed bothered too
you weren't really talking, no eye contact
your heart had been broken but your soul's intact
at least we're still alive, I'm thankful for that
we could've been just another soulless stat
our teachers always said we wouldn't be okay
now look at us now we drink the pain away
they say the kid's a product of the place they born
and the love that they got if they were nourished at home
well if that's the case we were dead at the beginning
but we're still right here and we're heavily breathing
I always try to be for the life we have
I pray to God tonight for the life we'll have

my brotha my friend we gonna be okay
my brotha my friend we know where we've been
my brotha my friend if you ever have a doubt
I'll guide you to the light for a way to get out
Track Name: kumo no yo
5. [KUMO NO YO]

変化しない周りの環境
に疲れてきた今この頃今日
mary jane flying 雲のよう
high like a kite right, 神のよう
現実とdreamingやっぱsleepはいい
旅行に行きたいけど金が無い
だから煙にまみれてgotta get high
ゆっくり流れる時間をliving

smoke a little weed cause life got me stressed out
smoke a little weed cause the girl got me stressed out
smoke a little weed cause the kids got me stressed out
fall back and sleep cause I need a little rest now

life is what it is, life a bitch
if mother God is the earth than life a ditch
but we gotta stay persistent, believe in self
sometimes we gotta lay back, let stress out
the people that you love let you down
but they still need you so you stick around
you're the shoulder to cry on, you got their back
so you always feel tired, gotta relax

Track Name: killit
6. [KILLIT]

la.. la.. la.. la.. la..
killit

you got a negative thought - just killit
you got a negative girl - just killer
you think I'm negative? you can kill me
I don't give a fuck, I just do me
not talented and not gifted
but I still got more class than most rich kids
I act humble but I'm still the boss
you can ask your mom if she's seen my balls
ballin' hustlin'
trying to make a living - just workin'
strippers on poles, women is hoes
but if she acting right she a Queen though
life is okay, life is beautiful
but if life a bitch you can just killit

killit

給料日ゼロが足りない
年とるほど興味が無くなる
金があっても使い道は
寂しさ殺し 酒とタバコ
それならいらない
俺ならリーガルハイ
女はいらない
ワックラップは ill じゃない
カナダがホームベース
東京は風俗
情熱も全部
今年はクールオフ

Track Name: cycle lifefull
7. [CYCLE LIFEFULL] *Japanese

生まれて死ぬ
yes, that's my life

(yeah)
(uh)

what it is, what it is, what it is, what it is

Life is what it is

今回で何回目?
born again and born again and die again
覚えてないライフも嘘じゃない 
my life, my lives, 100回も1000回も繰り返し
初めてじゃないのにrookieのように
まだ手馴れてないcause railが無い
それがプログラムthe脳gram
the hold on, the shows on
keeps going on

what it is, what it is, what it is, what it is
Life is what it is

俺等のbrainはsensitive maps with delicate sounds
秘密を明かさない
secrets lie in every corner and every dark alley
神がいるかは分からない
I don't know but it doesn't really matter does it, does it?
even if it did 何も変わらない
変わるのは時計の針だけ
cause time keeps ticking
and the seams keep ripping (yeah)

what it is, what it is, what it is, what it is
Life is what it is
Track Name: lonely
8. [LONELY]

when the rain came you walked away
when the rain came you walked away
when the sunshine was out you was here
when the sunshine was out you was here

when we first started dating I took you all around
and now I don't do that I make you feel lonely
but that don't mean I don't love you you know that
it don't change the fact that I still got your back
but I got things to do outside of you
and so you started cheating right back to your roots
I don't hate though, I know the faults with me
and I try to improve but a change is unlikely
I don't try to change you I accept you as is
and my only hope now is that you do the same
there might be others guys but what are the chances
of finding one like me the chance is unlikely
so let's try to make this work just you and me
don't rush into things just take it slowly
if love is our destiny this was meant to be
and the games that you playing got you messing with me
I don't love many, just a couple of friends,
you and my ex, so let's make amends
I lost one once don't want to lose another diamond
the glitter in my life, the reason that I'm rhyming

when the rain came you walked away
when the rain came you walked away
when the sunshine was out you was here
when the sunshine was out you was here

you got me feeling lonely
you got me feeling lonely
Track Name: hope for home
9. [HOPE FOR HOME]

can i get an H and an O and a PE
might not be winning but at least I be trying
I ain't giving up not quite yet
don't want to be just another statistic

sadistic
life can be
but I'm still right here not willing to leave
I might not win but my will won't be broken
despite all the hardships I haven't stopped hoping

we was born in the Downtown Eastside Vancity
where most people don't make it out alive pretty
we was born in the gritty streets with petty thieves
where most people who had power was menacing
we wasn't born ugly but got ugly quick
needle points on our forearms and slits on wrists
I was just another chink though I was Japanese
but I guess it didn't matter - we were FOBs

can i get an H and an O and a PE
might not be winning but at least I be trying
I ain't giving up not quite yet
don't want to be just another statistic

sadistic
life can be
but I'm still right here not willing to leave
I might not win but my will won't be broken
despite all the hardships I haven't stopped hoping

fresh off the boat though I was born there
we struggled with our money so I was born bare
my pops changed jobs like every few years
and my moms dealt with anger by screaming in my ears
at least they were clean though, most parents weren't
as much as I hated it at least I wasn't hurt
physically at least though emotions were broken
didn't realize I was born into a hopeless home

can i get an H and an O and a PE
might not be winning but at least I be trying
I ain't giving up not quite yet
don't want to be just another statistic

sadistic
life can be
but I'm still right here not willing to leave
I might not win but my will won't be broken
despite all the hardships I haven't stopped hoping
Track Name: green thing
10. [GREEN THING] *Doganese

I got this green thing on my head
but I can't see green so it looks like gray
I got this green thing on my head
it's a tad bit tight but it feels okay
I got this green thing on my head
but my feet are too short to take it off my head
I got this green thing on my head
I'd prefer not to wear it but accept it instead

the world is green, the world is blue
at least it looks that way on the news
money and sad faces
war - in different places
the color of our skin - raceless
competition - places
I wear Nikes, she makes them
in a factory in China - faceless
Obama - cool dude
but Obama - a voiceless dude
like a puppet I wear a mask
I let you put in on me - a statement
look at me, look again
look one more time, and then again
this furry frog thing that I'm wearing
is your brain on drugs - scary
life is happening, life is fair
a bullet takes a life
we not here
you play make believe
I play real
I don't gotta smile
I just feel
I got this green thing on my head
but I can't see green so it looks like gray
I got this green thing on my head
it's a tad bit tight but it feels okay
I got this green thing on my head
but my feet are too short to take it off my head
I got this green thing on my head
I'd prefer not to wear it but accept it instead

you're not my master
you never were
just wanna see you smile

11. [PLACES]

what doesn't kill you
don't really make you stronger
but stick around and the pain will go away
I promise you this, suicide ain't the answer
cause there are other ways to get away from this place

Nanaimo and Hastings, I was born around there
couldn't afford to travel so I roamed around there
went to Value Village with my pops on the regular
before thrift shops were cool we were always there
my friends use to fight just to pass time
and their parents always fought
cause they were always out their minds
high on whatever they could afford that day
and drunk off of liquor after every payday

what doesn't kill you
don't really make you stronger
but stick around and the pain will go away
I promise you this, suicide ain't the answer
cause there are other ways to get away from this place

kids use to bleach their hair, we were 9
and kids use to smoke all day, we were 10
teachers got arrested for various crimes
and kids kept hopeful with various lies
there was blood on our doorsteps
I never asked who's
it never seemed to matter
cause we were always on the news
Ferndale street from age 1 to 12
until I realized that I had to get out

what doesn't kill you
don't really make you stronger
but stick around and the pain will go away
I promise you this, suicide ain't the answer
cause there are other ways to get away from this place
