Nekorz Sleepy melancholy Bossa-Nova and polyrhythm paintings; waves of gentle Pop-fueled Jazz.

'What is going on 'round you' is a wonderful question for the Xmas period - it offers a very gentle gliding catchy funbop that makes for audio-pleasantry unto the ears for other producers, especially.

明け方の憂鬱は 甘く永い瞬きの後で 俯いている間に いつかの夢は遠く離れて 気づいたら独り なんとなくそこにあった 大きな虚ろを もうこの手で繕えずに ただ眺めるだけ 入り組んだ心の奥の 誰にも見えぬ場所に 圧し殺してきた何かが 目醒めないように 人知れず演じ続けた 何処かの誰かを 庇いきれず 永遠に続くマスカレード 頼りなく 吐き出された 煙にも似た 交わり 手繰って 今日も誰かを 愛したい ほんのすぐ傍にあった孤独も 気づかないくせに ただ愛を手にするために 小さな嘘重ね 愛を受け容れるために また嘘を吐く 耳許を擽るような 仮初めの優しさじゃ 堰を切ったこの心は 満たせないのに 蜘蛛の巣のような世界で 怯える私を 掬いあげる存在も いない街角で 歪な暖かい闇の中へ The melancholy of dawn From after my drowsy eyes had blinked While my head was dropped A dream I once saw now far away I find myself alone I gaze at the emptiness that once existed there No longer can I put it back together Through the maze in the back of my heart Where no one can see I try not to wake up what I have kept under So I pretend to be someone else While hiding myself from others Unable to keep up the act In this neverending masquerade I reach out for closeness In companionships as helpless as smoke exhaled Today again I want someone to love Even though I don't notice The solitude that's right next to me I cover up my lies just to obtain love And I lie even more so I can accept love Fleeting kindness only tickles these ears And cannot fill this ruptured heart Frightened in a spider-spun web of a world No one to scoop me out of here I sink from the street corners Into the warm and irregular shadows

今きみは 何もわからないだろうね 完璧に満たされた からっぽの中で ひとり当て所なく 彷徨うきみを ぼくが助けてあげる 全てを振り捨て 手に入れた自由も 自分を信じられずに 持て余している 少し痛いけど 怖くはないよ あらゆる苦しみから 解き放ってあげる I wonder what is going on 'round you 泣き縋る声も 遠くなっていく I wonder what is going on 'round you きみはひとり 救いを待っている あまりに普通で 気が狂うほどの 無感動で生温い 夢をみている 良識を笠に着た 世間の人は きみとぼくとのことを わかったように言うかな I wonder what is going on 'round you 眠りに落ちるように 苦痛は去っていく I wonder what is going on 'round you ぼくはきみを とても愛している I wonder what is going on 'round you どんなに叫んでも たぶん nobody can find you I wonder what is going on 'round you きみはやがて 理想になっていく I wonder what is going on 'round you 誰も見てないよ たとえ no matter what you do I wonder what is going on 'round you 君はいつも わかったふりをする I bet at this moment you don’t get it at all In a space perfectly filled yet totally empty You wander around with nowhere to go I am the one who can save you The freedom you got by leaving everything behind You don’t know what to do with ‘cause you don’t trust yourself It will hurt a little, but you don't have to fear I will deliver you from any and all pain I wonder what is going on ’round you You cry and beg but your voice is getting lost I wonder what is going on ’round you You are all alone waiting to be saved Caught in a maddeningly ordinary Emotionless and tepid dream Will self-righteous people living in this world Speak of us as if they understand I wonder what is going on ’round you Like falling into sleep the pain will fade away I wonder what is going on ’round you I love you so very much I wonder what is going on ’round you Scream all you want, it's likely nobody can find you I wonder what is going on ’round you Little by little you will become the ideal I wonder what is going on ’round you Nobody’s watching, no matter what you do I wonder what is going on 'round you You always pretend that you understand
