P-Model - "Waste Cabaret" Lyrics

"Waste Cabaret" is a song from 1999 (I think), but it feels incredibly relevant to the current state of the world: political movements, harsh military action, terrorism, unemployment, wasted lives, and terrible entertainment. Or at least that's what I think of with this song. XD

I sort of feel like this song would not have been out of place on the later Kaku_P Vistoron album.

This song is hard to translate because a lot of lines feel incomplete (verbs are missing entirely, etc.). To make the sentences work, though, I sometimes had to put in verb that isn't in the original. Also, the "ha!" that the singer interjects in every verse breaks up the lines in a weird way and almost seems to be a form of censorship or at least a sign that whatever's happening is unspeakable. I did my best to incorporate the feeling, but suggestions are always welcome, of course.

P-Model - "Moon Plant-II"

This song feels like a Hirasawa-style lullaby. (...um.) I love all the fun electro sound effects bouncing along over and under the piano.♥ It's really a nice little gem of a song even if it is about the joys of satellite radio AGAIN.

P-MODEL - "回収船" / P-MODEL - "Recovery Ship" Lyrics

I think of "Recovery Ship" as part of the navy that complements the airplanes in "Logic Airforce." ^_^
