    Default Between Us Two: Japanese Marching to Mars reference?

    Sorry for the odd title, but here's the story.

    I bought a sealed copy of the Japanese edition of Marching to Mars on ebay. As usual, nothing much was different other than the two bonus tracks Ether and Wash Me Down, though it did come with a separate booklet, all completely white with black print, containing English and Japanese lyrics for every song. In the first few pages on this booklet, prior to the lyrics, there are pages of japanese characters with song/album titles in english in brackets, like (VOA) (THREE LOCK BOX) (I NEVER SAID GOODBYE) (MONTROSE) (plain jane) (FOR UNLAWFUL CARNAL KNOWLEDGE) and other stuff like (Hey Thanks a lot Ed!) (EXTREME) is also printed there, almost like a VH glossary of terms or something.

    Amongst all of these familiar solo/VH tunes/albums, there are what appears to be Sammy's rejected lyrics for Humans Being [The Silent Extreme] "Sky turning black/knuckles turning white/headed for the hot zone" followed by three lines of Japanese characters and then (Between Us Two).

    Does anybody know what any of this means or why it was printed? I can post images if someone knows how to read the Japanese parts, but it seems strange for an unfinished song and unused lyrics to be printed in Japan with the album.

    I have a japanese import of Mourning Widows' first record and it came with an insert exactly like the one you're depicting and I've been trying to find someone who reads Japanese to translate the thing for me all this time.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Default wash me down again

    I'm feelin' 40 days, 40 nights ain't enough
    Come on wash me down 'cause I ain't giving up
    Hey

    I don't want to leave but how can I stay
    I feel those magical things slipping away
    A full circle's come around to the beginning of the end
    Wash me down again

    I'm stripped to the bone with nothing to fear
    Four walls came tumbling down, now everything is clear
    Full circle's come around to the beginning of the end
    So wash me down again

    There's a point of loss, a point of no return
    Where nothing left wll burn

    So wash me down again
    Wash me down again
    Take me to the water
    Wash me down again, wash me down

    Hey

    Yeah, wash me down again
    Wash me down again
    Take me to the water, oh yeah
    Wash me down again, wash me down

    I'm feelin' 40 days, 40 nights ain't enough

    Yeah I'm just curious why those lyrics and the "between us two" is there and what the text around them means. I'm sure if we knew that we'd be able to get a rough idea of what the context of the entire booklet is.

    My friend got back to me and said she would translate it and get back to me by saturday.
    She said it's a lot to translate.

    Man i haven't heard "Marching to Mars" since it came out.
    I should go find a copy and check that album out again!
    Since Chickenfoot came out ive gotten back into Sammy's music a little.
    Found my old cassette of "Unboxed" about a month ago and put "High Hopes" into my ipod.
    Love that tune!
