Zankyou no Terror OST - Track 13 - is (feat POP ETC) by Yoko Kanno
lyrics:
someone tell me how I got here
from the city to this frontier
all the noises join to make harmony

I was stranded on an island
where I roam without direction
is that the wind lifting me up?

spirits flying at the speed of light
travelling like a dream one night
this hole in my heart is proof of life

life goes on
and the people sing their song

love and hate together
they can make harmony

plunging back into the darkness it's not pain, it's just uncertainty I know my heart's missing a piece but it still beats
In the indie world, it’s been a trend to obscure your message– it’s happened more and more recently, with the whole lo-fi movement and rediscovery of reverb. People over-use effects to cover up what they’re trying to say. To me, that feels really noncommittal. It’s like pretending that you’re apathetic about something, even if you care about it. It’s about being afraid, really. That’s the problem with the culture. There’s not anyone that’s just saying, ‘This is what I am, and here it is.’
—  Frontman Chris Chu talks to us about changing his band’s name from the Morning Benders to Pop Etc and the state of indie culture.

Pop Etc ~ Is [Yoko Kanno]

“ Someone tell me how I got here
From the city to this frontier
All the noises joined to make
Harmony

I was stranded on an island
Where I roam without direction
Is that the wind lifting me up?

Spirits flying at the speed of light (At the speed of Light)
Travelling like a dream one night
This hole in my heart is proof of life

Life goes on
And the people sing their song

Love and hate
Together they can make harmony

Plunging back into the darkness
It’s not pain it’s just uncertainty
I know my heart’s missing her piece
But it still beats… ”

I’m crying like a little baby every time I hear it, just because it’s played in the last scene of Breaking Dawn Part 2. (and because it’s so beautiful ;D)
