  • 1.  Ureshipa moshiri We grow together on Mother Earth (Ainu Language)

     

    I am the mother earth
    I am the father sky
    I am the grandma moon
    I am the grandpa sun
    I am the brother bird
    I am the sister flower
    And do you know what? I am you

    In front of the crossroad
    You can't choose either road
    What is the right way?
    What is the wrong way?
    You can ask me anytime
    Turn a stone by the roadside
    You'll find me. I'll be there
    The walls of misery that you built up
    Now you are trapped alone
    Fearful in the dark
    You can tell me anything
    Look at the stars at night
    And You'll find me. I'll be there
    Look at me looking at you
    The barriers slowly just fading away
    We are all born from the same mother earth, with one love

    I am the sad tears
    I am the sweet smiles
    I am the loneliness
    I am the anger
    I am the forgiveness
    I am the prayer
    And do you know what? I am you

    You're afraid of people
    You don't like yourself
    Feeling so unloved
    when you cannot move
    You can find me anywhere
    even in an old wise tree
    You'll find me. I'll be there
    Had to make a sacrifice
    to show your kindness
    Had to say goodbye
    because you loved her
    You can see me clearly
    even in the mirror
    And you'll find me. I'll be there
    Look at me looking at you
    Vanity slowly just fading away
    We are all born from the same mother earth, with one love

    I am an ordeal
    I am knowledge
    I am the light
    I am a life
    I am love
    I am God
    And do you know what? I am you


    You lost your parents
    You lost your friends
    Broke up with your lover
    Lost the meaning of life
    You can feel my silence
    in the blowing wind
    And You'll find me. I'll be there
    You curse your destiny
    Lose faith in your God
    Body stiff in your bed,
    fearing the knock of death
    You can feel my healing
    Put your hand on your chest
    And you'll find me. I'll be there
    Flowers and animals and birds
    We are all different in bodies and lives
    We are all born from the same mother earth, with one love

  • 2. PUZZLE


    Life is a puzzle even if one is missing
    You wouldn't be you, wouldn't be here
    wouldn't be here now, would not meet me
    Life is a puzzle, although you had a painful past
    It makes you shine, makes you warm
    makes you strong, makes you smile
     
    "What is the reason why you've come here to this world?"
    The blowing wind is now asking me why
    I'm on a journey to find the missing piece
    to fill the hole in my heart
    Tell me where to go. What should I do?

    We are only one tiny piece of the puzzle of this world
    The world is a tiny piece of the universe
    But there is also a universe inside of our hearts
    The people who you meet become shining stars

    I was waiting for, I've been waiting a thousand years
    Not allowed to meet until we're both prepared
    Fate is not set, but meetings are all planned
    The world gives you many lessons to learn

    Refrain

    You've been hurt enough
    You've been hurt more than you've hurt
    You've suffered from misunderstanding
    Forgive not only sins but people themselves
    It's hard for you to forgive
    Forgive all of them, and forgive yourself

    Not to love you as you are
    would mean to deny all your past
    Look back on your past to clear your mind
    If your mother and grandmother didn't love,
    you wouldn't be here now
    You are made of infinite love from many links

    The tears flowed from you
    They deepened your looks
    The rain clouded your face
    But brightened your smile
    There is no waste in the puzzle
    Mistakes don't even exist
    When you challenge misfortune, you will grow

    Refrain

    There is no perfect one,
    Everyone is imperfect
    That's why I need you, I love you
    The Puzzle never ends
    It will never be complete
    Because there is no end to the passing love

    Refrain

  • 3. KAZOKU


    I remember the day
    when you were coming into this world
    Mom did her best at the risk of her life
    She suffered, she bore down,
    she shouted like a beast
    Finally, she gave birth to you
    Daddy didn't know what to do
    like a chicken without a head
    I held mom's trembling hand so tightly
    Then, you joined our family
    Oh, I cried with joy

    Repeat and repeat and repeat
    We're living in a spiral of life
    Reborn and reborn and reborn
    We're learning the true love of life

    Don't you think that we are family?
    Don't you feel that we are family?
    I'm sorry, I didn't care for you
    because we were too close
    Even if we couldn't understand
    Even if we couldn't recognize
    The only treasure in the world
    This is your family

    Do you remember the day
    when our family broke up?
    Mom always worried about you
    She took care of you
    She struggled and puzzled
    Then she threw away our home
    leaving you lonely, alone
    Daddy loathed this family
    And I hated myself
    I was drunk every day
    and lost my sense of self
    Love was twisted, turned around
    And then I hit you
    Forgive me your lousy daddy

    Repeat and repeat and repeat
    We're living in a spiral of life
    Reborn and reborn and reborn
    We're learning the true love of life

    Don't you think that we are family?
    Don't you feel that we are family?
    I am sorry, I turned away from you
    because we were the same man
    Even without permission
    Even without respect
    The only treasure in the world
    This is your family


    We remember the day
    when mom left this world
    Daddy also wanted to die and be with mom
    I didn't have the time to say
    I'm sorry to her
    but I still love her even now
    All families have a common fate
    No one can escape
    Carrying each other, we walk hand in hand
    It is heavy and painful, a long and winding road
    but I'm happy to be with you

    Repeat and repeat and repeat
    We're living in a spiral of life
    Reborn and reborn and reborn
    We're learning the true love of life

    Don't you think that we are family?
    Don't you feel that we are family?
    I wanted to say thank you
    for making our family
    Even if we hurt each other
    Even if we hate each other
    The only treasure in the world
    This is your family

    Don't you think that we are family?
    Don't you feel that we are family?...

    Refrain

    Then, you joined our family
    Oh, I cried…cried with joy

     

  • 4. Hello, my mom!

     

    Hello, my mom!
    I remember that time clearly
    Your tummy was warm
    It was relaxing inside
    Kick, kick, kick
    Sleeping seeing dreams
    I heard your lullaby
    Such a gentle voice

    Hello, my mom!
    I was scared at that moment
    I went down the slide
    So narrow and so dark
    When I was born into a brilliant shining light
    I cannot forget such a joyful face

    It's very nice to meet you
    It's very lucky I'm your child
    I was born to protect you
    Mama ni aete yokatta
    Mama no kodomo de yokatta
    Hello, hello, my mom!

    Hello, my mom!
    I remember that time clearly
    They cut it between us
    Our final connection
    Felt like sandpaper towels
    The scale was cruelly cold
    I cannot forget the warmth of your hands

    Hello, my mom!
    It's a little inconvenient
    I cannot speak. I cannot move my body
    You can't hear my thoughts
    or what I want to do
    No, I'm not crying
    I'm singing a song for you

    Refrain

    Hello, my mom!
    I remember that time clearly
    I was up in the sky
    with a gentle God and angels
    Always watching you
    from way up in the clouds
    I saw your wedding, such a beautiful bride

    Hello, my mom!
    I decided by myself
    I'll be your child
    I'll choose you for my mother
    Because I love you more than anyone
    You are my only one
    The best mom in the world

    Refrain

    Don't spill that Slurpee
    Old bastard! Get the fuck outta here!

    Oh no no no I didn't mean it
    It's not what I had really wanted to say
    Basically, I despise everyone equally!

    Oh no no no I didn't mean it
    It's not what I had really wanted to do
    I wasn't born to do this shitty-ass job!

    Fishnet tights with a bunny tail

    My daughter calls me smelly garbage

    It's not what I had really wanted to say
    Thinking about how to commit suicide everyday

  • 6. Traveling man


    I hated all humans. I hated all adults
    I was against common sense
    and fucking morality
    I was barking and biting randomly
    like a mad dog. I was 19 years old

    I repeated mistakes stupid and reckless
    I shed helpless tears for myself
    There is one thing that I know
    That I should not be here now

    I am a Traveling man
    What do I really wanna do?
    I am a Traveling man
    I'll find out cause I don't know
    I am a Traveling man
    Why do I rush so much?
    I have to run away from here
    Or die and go to hell
     
    America is a monster dominating this world
    I wanted to see its violent tusks
    I tackled it like Don Quixote
    I had nothing to lose. I was 20 years old

    I took a bus from San Francisco
    I crossed the island of a great turtle
    I stayed at a cheap hotel
    in New York on Broadway
    I had my birthday with cockroaches

    Europe is an old pervert
    I really longed for dazzling places
    The bitch Europe tempts the world
    I was a horny, 21 years old

    I slept on the streets
    and in parks everywhere
    I wandered all the way
    from London to Rome
    Money stolen by an Amsterdam whore
    I took a piss on the wall of Berlin

    Refrain
     
    India beat me up
    Flipped me upside down
    Values broken into tiny chunks
    I sold my backpack
    I was wandering barefoot
    Became a Sadhu. I was 22 years old
     
    I was vomiting as corpses were burning
    Jumped into the Ganga River
    Got a disease, I was close to death
    I went to the river between two worlds


    I settled in New York City
    without a visa, without money
    I started painting and started singing songs
    Woke up free I was 23 years old

    I sold cocaine to buy heroin
    I was a dangerous gangster
    I was a homeless, I was a thief
    It was the worst time in my whole life

    Refrain
     
    To anyone who wants to be perfectly free
    I want to dedicate this song to you
    To anyone who is chasing a dream
    I want everyone to start on a journey
     
    The world is charming. I want to kiss it
    Quite foolish that I want to laugh
    The world is dear. I want to hold it
    So beautiful that I want to cry

  • 7. MAKERO


    All the cram school children, Oh, they laugh
    at the homeless man living in the trash
    They say, "That man is a loser."

    Businessmen waiting in a line
    A man yells at a slow elderly man
    "Hurry up, and get out of my way!"

    Help the weak, help the grieving
    is the strength of the man
    Only those who have lost something are
    able to save others

    Let's fail. Let's fail. Yes, let's fail
    Know the pain of a loser's soul is so deep
    Makero. Makero. Let's fail
    Know the love of a loser's heart is so big
    Yes. The number of your wounds
    makes you stronger than before
    You gentle beast
    Please come on, rise

    A young man kicked a baby carriage
    getting on the crowded train
    There was no apology for the mother

    A father scolds his son for skipping school
    "You're just a loser after all."
    The irony is the father lost his job

    There is a life
    That's similar to yours
    every weed you trampled down
    Only the man who knows darkness
    is able to light the way

    Refrain

    Let's fail. Let's fail. Yes, let's fail
    Know the pain of a loser's soul is so deep
    Makero. Makero. Let's fail
    Know the love of a loser's heart is so big

    Refrain

  • 8. An Occupation


    I was ashamed of my father's occupation
    He was a caretaker for a boring small car park
    He was sitting in a tiny shed all alone
    kept his head down for 30 years

    He had to quit his job
    to care for my sick mother
    I saw something that I couldn't believe
    on the last day of his job
    Colourful flower surrounded us
    So many bouquets covered the desk
    Everyone crowded around him
    They said, "Thank you for your hard work."

    A person's value is not based on occupation
    It depends on how they do their work, care for all
    Now I'm proud of my father's occupation
    He is working unselfishly for others
    It's the occupation

    I did not want to end up like my mother
    She studied music in college, wanted to be a pianist
    She is playing cashier instead of the piano now
    She is always smiling, talking with customers

    It was the night of Christmas Eve
    I went to the store where she works
    I saw a sight I couldn't believe
    There was just one lonely line
    The store opened more registers
    But everyone stayed in her line
    because they wanted to salute her
    Say "Merry Christmas!"

    A person's value is not based on occupation
    It depends on how they do their work, care for all
    Now I'm proud of my mother's occupation
    She is working for the happiness of others
    It's the occupation

     

  • 9. Grandma's Hands


    Grandma's hands, wrinkled hands
    Don't talk about anything
    Grandma's hands, child-like hands
    Like a lotus flower wrapped in time

    The hands fought off a seeking mother
    when she was born a long time ago

    The hands knitted a flower necklace
    when she was an innocent child

    The hands wrote a love letter
    when she was a dreaming girl

    The hands waved a Japanese flag
    for her elder brother going to war

    Refrain

    The hands loosened the belt of a Kimono
    when she undressed on her wedding night

    The hands tightly hugged her groom
    Got married in an arrangement

    The hands chopped chives for soup
    They ate little and lived poorly

    The hands wiped lonely tears
    for the husband's betrayal

    Refrain

    The hands washed baby diapers
    when she became a young mother

    The hands touched an altar
    when her parents passed away

    The hands cradled her grandchild
    when she was the most happy

    The hands laughed for the first time
    when she left this world

    Many things had and many things lost
    These hands hold her history
    Grandma's hands, hands of God
    A lotus flowers wrapped in time

    Refrain

  • 10. The Stone of The Brave


    Before you came to this world
    you chose your own stone
    to carry on your back
    for your life time
    You're Reborn many times
    and learn many things
    Your soul gets stronger
    by baring the heavy stone
     
    The stone's very light. Baby turtle size
    The stone of a child who does not have any worries
    Blessed with much beauty,
    health and wealth
    Playing without fear of anything at all
     
    The stone gets heavier. Raccoon size
    The stone of a boy
    who is starting to wake up
    He will challenge and lose, but will always get up again
    Keep on searching for your truth, never give up
     
    Daijoub dayo
    You can do it, you will be all right
    The life that you have
    is the Stone of Destiny
    Let's keep on carrying
    the stone of the brave

    The stone grows heavier. Red deer size
    The stone of the man
    who knows many sorrows
    He endures difficulties like a tsunami
    Keep on protecting who you love
    to the best you can

    The stone is its greatest. Buffalo size
    The stone of the brave
    who are honored by God
    He who overcame illness or disability
    Keep on giving hope and courage
    to men freely

    Daijoub dayo
    I think you will be all right
    Daijoub dayo
    I think you will be all right

    Refrain

  • 11. The Blue Sky


    Violently cold rain
    suddenly hits your cheek
    You are scared like a dog
    with frightened eyes
    An unforgivingly strong wind
    churns your hair
    You have nothing left
    Drop to your knees
     
    In the rain, in the wind,
    and even in a storm
    The blue sky is always
    up above the clouds

    In the pain, in the grief,
    and even in hell
    I'm watching you, protecting you
    from the sky above the clouds

    The tsunami of destiny is
    going to swallow you
    As the shores disappeared,
    you looked up at the sky
    Don't fight the flow
    Don't fight your fate
    Believe in yourself
    Just go with the flow

    Refrain
     
    Angels come down from the sky
    using a ladder of light
    Fallen trees will sink
    into the earth, one more time
    Green buds will grow
    in a swamp of mud
    Now, at this time,
    you are still alive

    Don't you know about your truth?
    You are the rainbow warrior
    The great soul, the brave heart
    You are the eternal traveler

    You create the world,
    You stop the hate
    You give everyone peace and love
    You wake up now
    You find your voice
    You welcome yourself home

    Refrain

  • 12. Gods Bless You


    God, you're a really bad liar
    There were always two footprints,
    yours and mine, on the beach,
    But when I was so depressed,
    one set of footprints disappeared
    Felt like you left me behind
    Dear child, listen to my words
    I am always with you
    Dear child, please open your heart, open your eyes
    Can't you see that the footprints became one
    sinking into the sand
    At that time, I was carrying you on my back
    No matter who denies you
    No matter who hates you
    I watch over you. I support and protect you
    Even if you doubt yourself
    Even if you blame yourself
    My love for you will never change, never end
     
    Gods bless the child even if they are weak
    Gods bless the child even if they are bad
    Thank you for being you
    I give you this blessing song
     
    I confess to you honestly
    I was a junky and a thief
    I confess to you honestly
    I betrayed many people
    But ghosts from hell whispered to me, voicelessly
    I want to tell you something important before I die
    God can't be found in a church or a shrine
    God lives in the earth, birds, flowers, and in all things
    And God also lives in your mind
    When I call her by her name, It's love
    No matter who laughs at you
    No matter who scorns you
    I am proud of you
    I praise you with my heart
    Even if you fool yourself
    Even if you lose yourself
    My love for you will never leave, never fade

    There is a love, only your love, and always with you
    Can't you hear her? 
    Your love is crying for you
    She's waiting patiently,
    You should take notice
    because you have turned your back on her
    Now is the time
    Go wake your sleeping love up
    Love, love, go love the world where you were born
    Love, love, go love all lives, your brothers
    Go love yourself more than anyone else
    No matter who hurts you
    No matter who beats you
    I will hold you gently
    And I'll wipe your tears, make your smile
    Even if you judge yourself
    Even if you reject yourself
    My love for you will never break, never die

    Refrain

    I'm sorry that I was not honest with you
    I'm sorry that I was not brave when you needed me
    Go straight to your heart, my words, the truth of me
    Only five letters of gratitude

    There's nobody else who plays the part for me
    There's nobody else but you, just you for me
    When I think of you I feel like shedding tears of joy
    Only five letters of gratitude

    Thank you for meeting me, ARIGATOU
    Thank you for loving me, ARIGATOU
    Thank you for all, for all of you, ARIGATOU
    That's all I want to say

    I was always by your side, but I never told you
    I was always trying, but too shy to tell you
    How many times did I say it in my dreams?
    Only five letters of gratitude

    You helped me out during bad times
    You cheered for me when I had good times
    I'm living my life cause I have you
    Only five letters of gratitude

    Thank you for giving life, ARIGATOU
    Thank you for raising me, ARIGATOU
    Thank you for all, for all of you, ARIGATOU
    That's all I want to say

    Only five letters of gratitude
