And here are the Lyrics to Small Spring by Ibumushi イブムシ

何処やらドラマと効果音 シュールに飢えた笑い声
歯車絞めてる配線と すれ違い様の啜り泣く声
大木の中のさらに中 どいつもこいつも嘆いとけ   
外の世界を拒絶してた 僕は勝手に消え去った

壁の向こうに敵は居るんだ 外を目指して壊しにかかれ
甘い話を聞かせてくれないか? 苦い涙はもう涸らしてしまったよ

何やら騒音廃車体 ルールに乗れない困った子
荷車閉めてく君の指に 光すら見えない重力

壁の向こうが知りたくはないか? ビリビリするような脂は飽きたね
「ヤングなアイツが勿体ない」なんて 言わずに生きてりゃ 所詮極楽だろう

何か期待されて 生きるのは ごめんだぜ

壁の向こうに敵は居るんだ 外を目指して壊しにかかれ
