Glory Days by Hiroya Ozaki is the first track of his new 4-track EP, Seize The Day, which, as the title suggests, has an inspirational theme of motivating one to look forward to greater glory days to come in future. Glory Days is also the theme song for anime film Psalm of Planets Eureka Seven: Hi-Evolution 1

The lyrics address the various obstacles one might face along the way to realizing their full potential and living the successful life of their dreams, such as the burdens of the past, the bad habit of giving excuses for one’s failures, the fear of uncertainty, and the fixation on finding just a single right path forward, when in reality, no such singular correct answer exists in life. The song suggests that by casting aside all these impediments, we will realize that “we are free”, and proceed unstoppably towards achieving our goals.

The visuals also complement these ideas by depicting the lives of various young people in various different activities, each seeking perfection and success in what they do, whether that is to lead a carefree life as a skateboarder, perfecting one’s craft in the discipline of dance, or improving oneself in their job in floristry, all of whom would stand to gain and grow as individuals by implementing the song’s advice in their lives. In doing so, the visuals establish that what the song mentions are common principles that are applicable to anyone’s life as they work towards their goal.

And we too, should heed the wisdom in this song and take the inspiration into our own lives. Hiroya Ozaki will be going on a tour to promote Seize The Day in Japan from 6 October to 12 November 2017.
