Ist das irgend eine Wahl, oder
Versteckst du dich wieder von dir selber?
Ist das wieder deine Qual, oder
Suchst du eine Befreiung von dir selbst?
Sind es wieder neue Sorgen, oder
Bist du noch einmal mit mir dämlich unzufrieden?
Was ist das? Was heißt das?
Nicht du allein bist das Ende dieser Welt
Distress ... !


Is this, maybe, your choice, or
Are you hiding from yourself again?
Are you in agony again, or
Are you looking for an escape from yourself?
Are these new problems again, or
Are you just being difficult and mad at me again?
What is this? What's it called?
You're not the only one that's the end of this world
Distress ... !

Song Production Information


I, TaQ, am the one who decided to remix this song, though it's not techno or big beat. I also broke out my old, rusty guitar skills for this song. The arpeggiator work in the middle is by good-cool, and I worked for many days with Osamu Kubota on the orchestration. It came out on such a grand scale ... but it's just the 5th style opening. Should I take this seriously or not ... ?

Video Production Information


Yea~h, these drawings took a long time
It was a lot of fun though. The dog the brother's holding in the pictures is based off the black pug I have at home named JOJO.
(The real thing's a billion times cuter!)
