If I could, I would repaint the world.
Nothing as drastic as getting rid of wars,
But maybe, there’s a bit of that too.

I can’t be an actor or a movie star,
I can’t even laugh naturally in front of you for that matter.
What’s there for a guy like me to do?

Everything I did was wrong, and I don’t understand, rolling rolling.
My heart is aching over what was never really mine.
We will probably continue to run… our entangled hearts, rolling rolling
Setting off to the frozen ground, rolling.

There is no reason but somehow I am sad.
Hopeless, when you can’t even cry.
So I sing, hoping to bring warmth to the night.

The rock rolls, taking us away to somewhere, somewhere.
A new life begins to grow, cracking the solid ground.
Beyond those hills, shining in glory…
Comes the morning that will light up all the loneliness.

The small red car is taking her away,
Far around the corner to the other side.
Disappearing from my sight…

What was it I lost? I can’t even figure out, rolling rolling.
My heart is aching over what was never really mine.
We will probably continue to run… our entangled hearts, rolling rolling

Setting off to the frozen ground, rolling.

Mustang (mix for Meiko)

Asian Kung-Fu Generation  - Mustang (Mix for Meiko)

Reading Solanin (the manga) while listening to this makes me cry all the time. Such a beautiful song.

AKG Fun fact:

This mix was released as the B-side to the Solanin Single. The lyrics to Solanin (the song) were written by Inio Asano (the author of the Solanin manga) and the original version of Mustang was the ending song to the Movie adaptation of the manga. The reason for the title being “Mix for Meiko” is that Meiko is the name of the female protagonist of Solanin.

I am SO going to Hell for this.

Art belongs to gammija as part of this comic. Blame lies entirely on phantomrose96, who did not ask for any of this, but has dragged us all into the fiery pit enough times that we shall celebrate the day of this demon’s birth by ritualistically throwing ourselves into the Sun.

Bonus:

A realization about Into the Bunker

At the end of Into the Bunker, there’s the really cute/sad scene where Wendy lets Dipper down softly and Mabel and Soos come in to support him. But here’s a little detail about it I hadn’t noticed before…

Of course we remember this cute line in the last scene (before the credits gag)

It’s not much, but remember that the very next episode is the first one in the season with a certain rebound ship

It appears to be coincidence, I mean there’s no Dipcifica in this episode, it’s not like the writers were expecting us to view her as the rebound ship, was it??

Coincidence? By Alex Hirsch? I think not!
