Grapes 05:10
道行く人よ 静かな目で堪えている 溢れた砂の 中に見えた瞬きが 夜明けまでに 何処か遠くへ 行けば良い 一つの意図が 垂れる垂れる垂れる 夜明けまでに 何処か遠くへ 行けば良い 馴染みの過去は 終わりにする 夜明けまでに 何処か遠くへ 闇の中で 会えるならば それで良い


"Grapes" is a mid-tempo Nu gaze, dream pop song.
First, a loop of reverse guitar and with a light rhythm start to flow at the song beginning.
And hazy and whisper vocal is coming in.
Then a layered voices will be fill up for space on main chorus.
Also, beautiful guitar sound be waiting at the end.
This song is sung in Japanese and it's singing about Tom Joad in "The Grapes of Wrath(1939)" by John Steinbeck.
You could be listen one of different approach from other songs with Tom Joad's theme.
