about

At the end of 7 years in Japan, this was my last live performance.
7年間日本に滞在した時の最後のライブ。

The songs are all new. The story is that of a couple about to part ways and break up because of insurmountable distance. They choose to spend their last day together at that most romantic of locations, the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum.

全て新しい曲です。話題はすぐ離れて行くカップルの最後のデート。カップルとしての最後の日はもちろんあの最もロマンチックな場所に行く、福井県立恐竜博物館!

released June 8, 2014

Special thanks to Haruhisa Yamada, Jun Tsukatani, Charles Darwin, Percy Shelley, geologists, museum curators, the science of paleontology, all the regulars at my shows in Fukui (can't do it without you!), and, of course, Jeff Goldblum.

Track Name: 起源
「このように生命を見たとき、そこにあるのはなんという壮麗さだろう。原初、いくらかの力をもった命が、何個かの、いや、ひょっとしたらたった一個の身体に吹きこまれ、そうしてこの惑星が重力の一定の法則に従って回りつづけているあいだに、そのきわめて単純な最初の生物から、これまでになく美しい生物に、これまでになくすばらしい生物にと果てしなく進化してきて、いまもなお進化しつづけているのである。」 チャールズダーウィン
Track Name: Ever Changing
A pool of life yet to be known
A flash of light and thunder bellows
Amino acids form and they grow, oh they grow
Give it time and they grow

Something swam, something crawled, something walked
Something walked, something climbed, someone talked
Someone talked, someone built up a world and here we are
So much time but here we are

All these people pulling rocks out of the ground
Reading histories so long and profound

Tragedies of forests to deserts they fall
Oceans once teeming now buried below
Below, so far below where we are

Something swam, something crawled, something walked
Something walked, something climbed, someone talked
Someone talked, someone built up a world and here we are
So much time but here we are

Tragedies of forests to deserts they fall
Oceans once teeming now buried below
Below, so far below where we are

It all could change where we are
Track Name: 生き残る
巨大な生物、ネズミより小さい生物、肉食系、草食系、幅広いですね。
どうしたらこの地球に生き残るかな?ダーウィンの名言を聞きましょう。
「生き残るのはもっとも強い種ではなく、もっとも賢い種でもなく、もっともよく変化に対応する種である 」
Track Name: Inheritance of the Meek
Shadows grow long in the afternoon, trembling o'er the earth
Footprints, footprints, scatter all ye weak
Scatter to the trees and bushes, to the crags and creeks.
Scatter, scatter

But, who will live to tell?
Who will live to tell?

Can't go it alone
Just can't go it alone
Can't go it alone

There is a fate maybe worse than death, if a kind could go extinct
Predators may be on our backs, but in time we can succeed

Can't go it alone
Just can't go it alone
Can't go it alone

The top of the food chain is a lonely place when the sky comes falling down
What'll you do when the sun don't shine?
Where will you go when the lava flows?

Can't go it alone
Just can't go it alone
Can't go it alone

Could it be could it be could it be?
Could it be? Could it actually be?
That the survivors don't need don't need
The survivors don't need

The sharpest teeth

Can't go it alone
Just can't go it alone
Can't go it alone
Track Name: 爬虫暴君王
さて続きましょう。大人気のティラノサウルス!300万年ぐらいの存在の恐竜。拍手出来なかったけど、一口で白鵬 でも食べれただろうと思われています。史上最大級の肉食恐竜の一つである。なかなか恐ろしいでしょう。
Track Name: Sic Semper Tyrannosaurus
我が名は「ティラノサウルス」王の中の王
全能の神よ我が業をみよ そして絶望せよ
All the tyrants of the ancient world
Mighty tyrants of the ancient world
All the tyrants of the ancient world
Ain't so scary when they're nothing but a pile of old dry

bones, bones, bones

Ain't so scary when they're nothing but a pile of old dry bones

果てしない
果てしない
砂漠

All the tyrants of the ancient world
Mighty tyrants of the ancient world
All the tyrants of the ancient world
Ain't so scary when they're nothing but a pile of old dry bones
Track Name: お忘れ物のないように

Track Name: K-T and then?
Fire falls all around, smoke billows underground
Giant kings faint and lose their crowns

In a year maybe more, all of life could be torn
Like it has been before, a whole Earth reborn

Yet the sky could clear
A new order form
In the shadows near
Tiny hopes forlorn

The very dirt tween our toes, a graveyard of old
Pre-historic sorrow, stepping stones

So here we stand, camera in hand
See the sacrificial lambs
Consumed so we could live this land

But what I really mean
There's no museum piece
to put this passively
so let us speak, let us speak

Must we talk all day about these dinosaurs
Eras we've never known
Extinctions came so many times
Our pasts are full of bones
To forget!
To learn to live anew
To evolve a little at a time
Adapting, me and you
To evolve a little at a time
Adapting, me and you

If I could stay with you, I know, I would be at home
If I could only stay
Track Name: Endless Forms Most Beautiful
"There is grandeur in this view of life,
with its several powers,
having been originally breathed
into a few forms or into one;
and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on
according to the fixed law of gravity,
from so simple a beginning
endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful
have been, and are being, evolved."
-Charles Darwin
