"ODDS&ENDS" is a song whose story parallels (if it isn't the same as) the story of ryo as a composer and VOCALOID producer. The lyrics describe the struggles of someone unrecognized; with the help of Miku's voice they overcome barriers. It is accompanied by music featuring a small robot carrying Miku around a room where Supercell is performing.
You've always been laughed at
Unlucky at everything you try only to get caught in the rain
Your favorite umbrella blown away in the wind
And that stray steps on your toes as if sarcastically saying, "Thanks for your trouble"
You've never been very well liked
Kept at arm's length for no particular reason, you try to give it a shot
But with the mindset of "Just 'cause, I guess"
You're in sorrow, at a loss
So I'll lend you my voice! Some simply don't get it
My voice is a terrible offense to the ear, or so they say
But I know I'll be able to help you! Give me a song to sing
With lyrics only you can write
Compose and link together the emotions you want me to call out
Paint your ideals! I won't let anyone meddle with your feelings
The voice of these odds & ends will ring out, clumsily connecting unvarnished truths
I'll sing out with all my might
Now you find yourself famous
Fussed over by countless people, I take pride in it too
But at some point you changed
You grew cold, but still seem so lonely
"I'm done with machine voices, I'm my own person," You said
Finally you couldn't hold it back anymore, and you began to hate me
"He's just a nobody who has to rely on a program," They said behind your back
You cried alone, didn't you?
Can you hear my voice? I'll erase the insults
Because I know you're really kinder than anyone else in the world
The toy voice began to sing again, for nobody else but you
Grating and squeaking, breaking the limit
How many endless lyrics have we written together?
I find myself unable to come up with any more, but then I realized the truth of it all
"This must have all been a dream from which I'll never wake; the dream in which I met you."
These odds & ends have a happy look, but no matter how loud you call, she will not stir again
It was the end you always wanted, yet you cry out in anguish. "This can't be, this can't be," you weep
"I'm powerless, unable to save even one of these odds & ends!"
Emotions become falling tears, dampening your cheeks
And at that very moment, the world's colors began to change
Sadness, happiness: One person and these odds & ends came to know it all
Lyrics become songs, and once again they pulse around the world for you
Entrust your will to that voice, now your emotions resound
