■ Message from girugamesh:
On the day of the Tohoku-Pacific Earthquake, we were on our Europe tour. We couldn't stop worrying about Japan throughout the tour, but we were able to keep going because of all the fans' encouragement and love. All we can do at the time was to pray and we put those thoughts into lyrics. After we returned to Japan, we saw the aftermath of the earthquake with our own eyes and thought about 'what we can do to help.' Something we can do as musicians… After much contemplation, we reached the decision to release 'pray.' The lyrics are made of all the ‘prayers’ during the Europe tour and ‘hope’ for tomorrow which we found after we returned to Japan. We made this song to give hope to everyone and to let as many people as possible to know about what's happening in Japan. Let's become one and keep going forward hand in hand!! Pray for Japan!
