Just another quick post with the lyrics for weave’s split album with fog.
For fans of bluebeard, mineral, Jimmy Eat World?????
fog’s songs will each be their own posts, because transcribing the lyrics from the book, then translating them takes a lot out of me, because I am actually not a good translator. Notably, weave’s lyrics are in English, but the Japanese “translations” in the book are kind of weird? So it’s hard to tell what’s what, especially for their song “freesia.”
As a note, the phrase “favorite number” (in the song “slow down still more”) means “favorite music.” This was something I didn’t know, but it’s in the translated lyrics and I’ve seen the phrase multiple times in Japanese media already since learning it (for example, SB69…).
You can support the band at their label Further Platonics or their own website.
There is a bandcamp, but no songs are available for streaming.
And digital downloading only is not available.
The easiest way to purchase weave’s music is through Strange Tales Records distro.
Check him out, he’s a cool guy.
These lyrics were transcribed by ear by the uploader of the above video, so there may be inconsistencies with the true (unreleased) lyrics. That said, everything makes sense to me. I went pretty liberal with this because the lyrics are pretty straight-forward.
By the way, I’m getting these lyrics from the ever useful SB69 Japanese wiki. Check it out!
