Acid Black Cherry / Re:birth
from Re:birth (2010)

yasu released this single after one year of hiatus, when he had a surgery and then a rehabilitation. He had a cyst removed from his vocal cord, which was disovered during Q.E.D. tour in 2009. Even though it was growing and yasu had problems with singing, he decided to continue with the tour. At the Q.E.D. Tour 2009 DVD you can see him being very weak, not to mention the moving documentary, which always makes me cry. This single was his comeback and his lyrics for Re:birth surely refer to this hard time:

I hate quiet nights, my anxiety flares up and I can’t sleep
If I cried it out I’d feel better, but crying just makes me thirsty

The truth is, see, even now I can’t stop shaking
I feel like something’s about to break
Don’t just say “It’s OK”
I’m not that strong

In my heart, the words and feelings I’d locked away
Have shaken off reason and begun to run riot again
I get it, already! Don’t glare at me with such a scary expression
Please, just leave me alone for a little while

I don’t want to do the things I love, I’m so afraid of tomorrow I want to die
If I ran away I’d feel better, but if I run away I’ll just want to die of shame

I pretend to be enjoying myself even though I’m not
What for? Who am I doing it for?
What should I do next? Should I smile again?
I don’t know, I can’t find the answer

Shattered, I move to a high place, I’m almost there
But she always keeps getting in the way
There’s something I want so much to tell her, but I can’t say it well
Even though I’m screaming so close to her

I just want to feel better now, but I don’t want to give up
I asked myself again
I keep losing heart, thinking “I can’t go any further…I can’t walk anymore”
But I’ve still managed to keep walking, right?

In my heart, the words and feelings I’d locked away
Have shaken off reason and begun to run riot again
I get it, already! Don’t glare at me with such a scary expression
Please, just leave me alone for a little while
There’s something I want so much to tell her, but I can’t say it well
Even though I’m screaming so close to her
