Earth Generation

Earth Generation

BandRockPop

We are a band with a mission. Our mission is to make the world a better place by connecting people, and building trust through music. We don't really adhere to a specific genre, and will use any style that delivers the message most effectively. We write music to better the world.

Biography

Our band's mission is simple but big. We write music the better the world. That's BIG. Each of the band members individually were already working on real life altruistic projects (like the ones where you dig ditches) and were psyched to form a band where we could all join forces to deliver a singular message.

The band was initially put together to write a theme song for short film "Sparkling Spiral" but the project extended into a larger scale production with the addition of Tak Yonemochi, our executive producer. Each of our members has a distinctive musical background which blends to create a rich an colorful musical texture.

Yuko has a solid background in traditional Japanese folk songs and builds on top of that with more modern influences. Her voice can be described as having solid center, while being controlled and agile. Yuko balances her time between her vocal career and working for Japan International Cooperation Agency traveling around the world to help those in need.

Tak Yonemochi helps with production and composing, with a background in rock / adult orientated rock. He is a veteran guitarist who has played with members of Ratt Dokken Foreigner Asia. And he has a new solo album
features performances from former members of Yngwie Malmsteen and other big name artists.

Ken Suguro also helps with production and composing. Ken's musical influences ranges from hard electronica to rich symphonic arrangements, and writes songs with strokes that many times go from one genre into another. Ken adds great variety to Earth Generation's sonic texture.

Taku Kotabe provides conceptual direction for the project, and is involved with lyrics and the overall color of Earth Generation.

Each of us live somewhat separate lives. We each have jobs and full time commitments. But we set aside a little time, and put effort into Earth Generation. It is a tiny bit, but it's where our roads cross. Earth Generation is the overlap of each of our ideals.

Lyrics

Would it Be The Same

Written By: Ken Suguro

a little piece gets left behind
every time you think me me me, about your own selfish self
you fade away into the daily grind
until you can't even see the web that holds us in place
givin up is the easy way
we're here because of people who fight the feeling
you gota get up and make today
the day that made you believe in yourself
yes you can
who's gonna do it but you you you
find the dots connect the dots
it's not so hard once your start
yes you can
the time start is now now now
find the dots connect the dots
it's time to start
would it be the same
if the whole wide world
put their heads together
together for the better
it starts right here with most important one
we gotta work together
together for the better

we keep turning left and right
thinking who can we trust, thinking who don't we trust
the secrets, the competition in this unspoken fight
pull us all far apart, behind our own little hearts

what does it mean to win this game
is it even worth the pain, all the losses
how many times will we play this game
thinking some day we'll beat the system, we play once again

yes you can
who's gonna do it but you you you
find the dots connect the dots
it's not so hard once your start
yes you can
the time start is now now now
find the dots connect the dots
it's time to start
would it be the same
if the whole wide world
put their heads together
together for the better
it starts right here with most important one
we gotta work together
together for the better

Cerulean Blue

Written By: Tak Yonemochi

I saw a picture in a magazine
Couldn’t believe yous eyes
Like an angle standing at my door
I just had to gaze
My life is changing in so many ways
Because of your smile
You’re the one that I’ve been looking for
All of my life

Give me something real
So that I can feel once again
I know this is fate
Don’t you make me wait
One more time, Cerulean Blue

You’re the one, my only love, Cerulean Blue
You’re the one, my only love, Cerulean Blue

Everyday my temperature is rising
I can feel myself
Fueled the fire now I realize
You’ve captured my heart

Giving something real
Now that I can feel once again
Putting life inside a lonely heart that died
One more time, Cerulean Blue

You’re the one my only love
You’re the one my only love

Good Night LA

Written By: Tak Yonemochi

Things will change with the flow of time
But the scene I saw I couldn't bear it
The land of bucks tuning into dime
The streets will soon be filled with thieves

All our dreams buried in the land
Where are you my sweet paradise
All our thoughts fading into dust
Where are you my sweet home LA

Guns and bombs tearing up the town
Floods and quakes braeking it apart
The land of hopes turning into hopeless
Now we all have to start all over again

All our dreams buried in the land
Where are you my sweet paradise
All our thoughts fading into dust
Where are you my sweet home LA
All our dreams buried in the land
Where are you my sweet paradise
All our thoughts fading into dust
Where are you my sweet, sweet LA

Emotions

Written By: Yuko Yamamori

Let’s talk about our hopes and dreams
Reaching everyone under the sky
Smiling to the world just like the sun beams
That makes the flowers bloom as we walk on by
The kind and caring feeling inside your heart
Is just the kind of stuff that makes the world go around
But we gotta get to working
To keep this all a running
Fill the future with your color
We can make bridges over any thing that can come in the way
The world will come together
Weaving threads one by one a little every day
Just believe in your heart and we’ll never fall apart
It’s a feeling very real what color do you feel
a calm ocean blue
a purple sunset
a burning passionate red

Emotions relay the message through
Stormy night might take your will
But never mind and erase things in front of you
Get up and shake your body
Time will tell the truth

What goes around comes around
A never stopping cycle of positive feelings
We gotta keep at it so this never stops
The cycle is everyone abound around

One thank you to another thank you
Is just the kinda stuff that makes the world go around
But we gotta get working
To keep this all a running
Fill the future with your color
I believe we can paint the future as we dream it to be
The world will come together
Weaving threads one by one a little every day
Just believe in your heart and we’ll never fall apart
It’s a feeling very real what color do you feel
A calm ocean blue
A purple sunset
A burning passionate red

Emotions relay the message through
Stormy night might take your will
But never mind and erase things in front of you
Get up and shake your body
The future starts from here
