This is something I haven't mentioned anywhere. I am currently writing lyrics and compiling them. This is so that I can make a song. I want to make a lot of good songs and I want the person listening to them to think "who made these?" Then I want them to be surprised and ask "Oh, Morimoto-kun was the one!?" I have come to the thought that it would be nice if the name "Morimoto Ryutaro" was widely known. On top of that, in the future I want to be an artist who does everything from making his own lyrics and compositions, choreography, production, and costume proposals. I am earnestly writing lyrics right now as the first step to achieving that dream. I diligently write and put them together even during break time at school. However, I don't write at all during work because the other members are just going to make fun of me (bitter laugh). It's going to be my first month [doing this] just before SUMMARY begins (*Data for this article was taken in late August). I have already made around 30 song lyrics. Mr. Children's Sakurai Kazutoshi is someone I respect and I put his words "make songs with one song a day" into practice myself. There is still no technique when it comes to composing so with the method of applying my own lyrics to my favorite Mr. Children's and BOØWY's song melodies, I am practicing how to make music. I think it would be nice if one day I could study chord progression and make my very own original tune!
A time when I can be relaxed is right before bed, as soon as I go in the futon. I can relax fully once the room is dark and while listening to music. Just a little while back, me and my family used to all sleep in the same room so listening to music while sleeping .... it wasn't that kind of atmosphere. I eventually got a room all to myself though so I was able to get some peaceful time to myself (laughs). A lot of people say "you can relax when you're with family" but at home, there is that (<- strong emphasis) Shintaro. He's so noisy, there's no way I could relax. I am more comforted writing lyrics by myself and playing with my hamster (laughs).
