Track Name: Baby Blue Eyes
Baby, she's got blue eyes
Baby, she's got blue eyes
Blue as the skies before sunrise
Blue as a heart without light

Baby, she's got blue eyes
Baby, she's got blue eyes
Blue as the deepest sea
Blue as your mind, blue as my mind

Baby, now she's gone away
Baby, now she's gone away
Far away, to the land of dreams
Far away, to the land of ghosts...

Baby, she had blue eyes
Baby, she had blue, blue eyes
In the hallways, I always hear her voice
In the hallways, I still hear her voice
Track Name: The Night Song
Let go of fire in your soul
Stay calm for a minute, then go
Quietly close the door
Go down the empty road

It's time for us to grow apart
Somewhere there's a whole new start
Follow the light within your heart
It's time for us to grow apart

Night is upon the trees
Release your memories
Night breeze and morning dew
Coming along with you

It's time for us to grow apart
Somewhere there's a whole new start
Follow the light within your heart
It's time for us to grow apart
Track Name: Honey
Honey, hold on to my ding-a-ling
Throw away your wedding ring
Till the sun is up we'll cling, and cling
And cling

Fuck your husband, he's a jerk
Fuck your son, he's just a dork
We'll close the door, it's gonna work
I'll cork you up with my sweet cork

Honey, hold on to my ding-a-ling
Throw away your wedding ring
Till the sun is up we'll cling, and cling
And cling.
Track Name: Ever Again
It was the last day of Pisces when I saw you
You wore a red beret, and a sailor's west
And I don't know if I see you ever again

Your fair grey eyes, along with the dark blue skies
Introduce me to the state of my sadness
And I don't know if I see you... ever again
Track Name: One Small Favor
Ever since we've been through,
You keep on throwin' your pretty poo
To my windows

Now I know it's a delicious flavor,
But can you do me just one small favor?
A favor

Please while we are through,
Don't be throwin' your pretty poo
To my windows.
Track Name: River Blues
I was born in the river
I was born in a shell
And when the sun lately went down
I watched the moonlight spell

I made love with mermaids
I saw visions of blue
Though I was a kin of her majesty Queen
I always thought just of you

I moved out to the ocean
I saw an army of seals
And when I came home, been livin' alone
I heard that you married some eel

I was born in the river
I was born in a shell
And when the sun lately went down
I watched the moonlight spell
Track Name: We Ain't We
Sour times will come and go
Sweeter times will come and go
Everything will come and go
Don't you know

Loneliness will come and go
Everlasting love will come and go
Everything will come and go
Don't you know

So come sit next to me
Let's observe the world chasing dreams
Come sit next to me
Let's pretend that we ain't we
Track Name: Close Your Eyes
You gotta close your eyes before you die
Before you turn to stone
Close your eyes
Track Name: Mrs Katsuragi
Mrs.Katsuragi, now I'm feeling fucky
Now I'm feeling fucky for you
Mrs.Kobayashi, I wanna stick my hashi
I wanna stick my hashi into you

Show me your goo

Mrs.Hashimoto, I wanna take a photo
A full frontal photo of you
Mrs.Hayakawa, let me drink some cava
Let me drink some cava from you

Show me your goo
