lyrics

Twisted flowers
Growing out of floating pools
Whispered memories
Shrunken faces drunk with light

Hearts stop, hearts go
veins fill, blood flows
pulses of pink clouds unroll

a mosaic of time
scattered beats cry
crossing our empty black night
but

If the sky were a mirror
hoisted high up on chains
If that mirror were broken
electric waves shooting up bullet trains

The Bridge of Dreams calls
Who'll dare to cross it?

would we seek our reflections
in the shards crashing down?
Or would we hide and find shelter
deep in caves underground?

I’m watching you patiently

Complete mutation!

Hitodama, hitodama, hitodama

A face trapped in clay
A story betrayed
Vacant eyes open and close
Peeking out of the wall
A fury untold
Ringlets of blue, red and gold

but

If the sky were a mirror
hoisted high up on chains
If that mirror were broken
electric waves shooting up bullet trains

The Bridge of Dreams calls
Who'll dare to cross it?

would we seek our reflections
in the shards crashing down?
Or would we hide and find shelter
deep in caves underground?

I’m watching you patiently

Complete mutation!

Hitodama, hitodama, hitodama
