Odds – Truth Untold

Awaken from your slumber
and get up for the train
You were caught at your station
and waiting for the rain

Well I call and you answer
and I answer you again
So remember the answer
remember the way it ends

The truth untold
will always lie between us
We may never unfold
the way our lives have brought us here

Now send out all your letters
and write it in the sky
For worse and for better
forever you and I

Then surrender all the ammo
and gather all your charms
Cause it’s gonna burn you and it’s gonna blind you
and it’s gonna tear you arm from arm

The truth untold
will always lie between us
We may never unfold
the way our lives have brought us here

Can we get on this together
is it time to pull the wire?
We’ll I’m gonna learn to unwind you
and I’m gonna earn your faith entire

The truth untold
will always lie between us
We may never unfold
The way our lives have brought us here

An actor-turned-politician is promoting tax payments in a Japanese region through a video starring an “alien sausage” mascot

Yeah.

Former comedian Hideo Higashikokubaru (also known as Sonomanma Higashi) appears in a promotional video for a new tax scheme with the bright red mascot called Sou Seiji, the J-Town website reports.

They are publicising a scheme in Soo, a city in the eastern Kagoshima prefecture, where residents can offset their taxes by making donations to the city for local projects.

Money can be used to support local businesses, help the elderly, and promote a higher birth rate to counter a falling population, the city’s website says.

Sou Seiji arrived in the city two years ago to represent the locality’s pork and beef industry, and is one of a number of mascots promoting the locality, CNet Japan says.

The tax scheme also includes a competition to find Japan’s best forehead, complete with Twitter and Instagram hashtags.
