vermilion Front Cover




I see a steel tower from the window

Stray cats whisper to one another on a dead railroad

Breathe out smoke of a cigarette in the twilight

Draw a curtain to end these unfair days

Who am I gonna sacrifice tomorrow?

So that nobody take the hidden happiness away from me

I feel the madness taking over and bind myself

Gone through insomniac nights

Got used to hurt someone and being hurt by someone

Before I even knew

He still watering the empty garden

Still keeping and cursed with a vow he made

We cannot change anything

Burnt with passion for ambivalent belief

Thrown away our loved ones

Yet we cannot stop fighting for our own

He, cries for dream that won’t be come true

Where the hell would he lead us to?

She was shivering at the bottom of a river

Covered with the dark of night

But no one in this town even realize it

Tonight, the lights are turned on as always
