Japanese

Verbal, spend the words on this track in the mix, in the mix with UNIKA.

I've been waiting for so long (uh-huh uh-huh)

Broken promises, (check it out, check it out)
甘い言葉に誘われて (ya heard ya heard)

気にしない my periphery, 'cause 邪魔者ばかり
噂に聞く melodies 頭ん中に搭載 スケールは壮大
美味しく ate too many MC's, I got 口内炎
the fly 住民 いつも troopin'
the 23区 with love 音の囚人
so throw up your hands 冗談抜きな tech
urbanite 流れ m-flo dialect

you know it didn't have to be this way (that's right)
もう何も言わないで (uh huh)
癒せない この痛みも 聞きたくない 慰め

I've been waiting for so long, (yeah check it out)
