Radwimps Appreciation Lyrics Post

So recently I’ve been listening to this Japanese pop-rock band called ‘Radwimps’, and I’d like to dedicate this post to the beautiful lyrics that their songs contain:

"Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
Yesterday was the last day of my life up till now.
When I opened my eyes in the morning, it was off to the historical first trip of my life,
Now I took the historical first step of the rest of my life.”

"Like I was born with an inheritance of tens of thousands of years,
I’ll definitely link the future me to the past me.”

"Today is the first day of someone’s life.
Today was the last day of someone’s life.”


“Let me say this without fearing a misunderstanding.”
Which means you already fear one.
So what exactly should we do?
I don’t know either.
Some people compare life to a mountain,
Some people compare life to a star,
One day, I’m suddenly asked “by the way, who are you?”
And I don’t know.

"There’s no doubt in my belief in limits."
“To everything an end will come.”
Good, then someday an end will come
To that feeling also.

"That person is only good with words and is definitely the type to get embarrassed,
So he’s not reflected in the mirror, but he’s surely watching you from the other side.”

"Be imprinted on my eyelids just a bit more,
Even with light shining down, there’s only one person visible to me.”


“The noise in my chest is loud, but somehow nostalgic.
What is this feeling called? Ah, the long lasted pain that I’ve forgotten,what a misfortune.”

Lavoisier is having none of your shit.

Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.

Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject. 
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.
