A world that I will create A world that has no boundaries A world that I will intrude To those never had hands to pull A world that I will create A world that has no boundaries A world that I will intrude For those who forgot my hands to pull

I would like to break Break through the other side Everything that I have, gone I would like to break Break through the other side Everything desired Fly Fly away, fly away from a place you call home Fly away, fly away from a cursing you have owned Fly away, fly away from a friend you called friend Fly away, fly away from a lover you are in pain with Fly away, fly away from a laughter you weren’t told Fly away, fly away from a dream that wet your pillow
Lutu 04:49
As my facts tripled, my bone shrank My thoughts deviate to the piles of unkinds Don't zoom in too tight And you will zoom out fine Question the black and white Mutual wants a share of pie Leaning on whichever side is a choice of wave I ride Crossing the border of lies To give you a hug that I hold in mind
Tiptoe Grave 03:51
I'm so tired of this world Blue paint, and his tiptoe out of grave And then he flies! Hesitate I will boil it down boil it down boil it down

NAG • Story

Otay was troubled by the nature of negativity and the aggression and self harm that it comes with. In an effort of getting rid of it, O has tried numerous ways but failed with confusion. Later received a dream: a red plate swirling down and morphing into drooling beak creature. Otay woke up, saw a letter by her ear side--

To otay:

For a complete rid of darkness, light, too, rid.


Otay then sank a set of bow and arrow into a dead dear, waited for the vultures to finish the flesh. Then O ran to the top of a mountain, take the bow and aimed it at the sun.

NAG • background

In 2013, I was traveling for the first time to Niagara falls NY. It was once a land of the native Americans habitancy, but today it became a tourist site that requires tickets for entries. One of the censored performance was an indigenous ritual dance turning into a vaudeville: LED hula hoop performed by the remaining native American descents. I was attracted by a flute playing far away from where I was standing, traced the sound I found a vendor with the flute player. He saw me from a distance and waved his hands. I came close to chat with him, immediately he asked:

"May I choose a name for you?"
"Sure" I said.
"Otayoni! It means wolf. And my name is Koda, which means bear in my language."

Inspired by the name otayoni, I wrote 2 characters named otay and onii(doubled the “i” for binary simulation), constructed a fiction fantasy exploring a world questioning the theory of binary opposition.

The native Americans remained living(hope, light), however the reality is penetrated with dark shades of conditions. There’s an inseparable relationship between the two opposite subjects in the theory of binary opposition such as darkness and light, despair and hope, hell and heaven, etc. [NAG] is an abbreviation for the term “negativity” (self declaimed), at the time I was writing the album, I absorbed polarized sides from people in conversational debates, either black or white is pushed upon, negativity as an aftermath remained more than gradual kept-up solutions.

Negativity is the shadow of hope, the entrance of light lays behind a pitch-black alleyway.
