Track Name: Today's Happiness
simple like autumn rain weather
how can I explain today's happiness?
autumn like fire in color
rain falls on my head
this is happiness
I turn 'round.
Track Name: Maybe U Are
maybe you are
the one I love
the truest touch
is fucked up and wrong so it seems
your hands are too rough on me
I can't be free
from the one I need
and violence
please leave me
come nowhere close
but we are bound by red thread so
you will always come home.
Track Name: CC
oh come off it, you've got nothing up your sleeve
I run away from you, and it follows:
everybody's waiting for your curtain call.
a new knot to start
and you don't know shit, but there you are
Track Name: #9 Dream
so long ago
was it in a dream?
was it just a dream?
I know, yes I know
seemed so very real
seemed so real to me
took a walk down the street
through the heat whispered trees
I thought I could hear
somebody called out my name
as it started to rain
two spirits dancing so strange
ah bowakawa poussé poussé!
Track Name: Jojo Too
君が住む世界をなめるな
わかるけど、僕はただ
エロ本を眺めて
アイスをなめていたい
セブンの眩しさ
夜が現れる
ただ君だけ
笑い飛ばして
その甘さだけ
今、僕のもの.
Track Name: Super Eeyore
give it all away
here
naked ass too
it's how you fall by
the wayside
you've got nothing too
here
reborn as rain
I hide
it's how you fall by
the wayside.
Track Name: Wisdombody
(for a scaredy kid sorta solar-perplexed pondering the idea of duty now for the future...)

hits you with
a venn diagram straight to the diaphragm
my dude, you knew bitterness before all this
I can tell by that guiding light which illuminates the endless abyss
to the bottom of the stars, it's not too far
just gotta circumvent these bars

teach me the infinity of blood circuitry, our wired veins
wisdom body
a friend afraid of age
a desperate sorta sage fakes a fairly awful malady
teach me the infinity of blood circuitry
wisdom body
a friend afraid of age
a messed up sorta gauge of a reasonable reality

holding onto "0"
stands as an ancient hero
his truth was realized when he visualized the message in the skies
the timeless cipher which lies in the cosmos is as old as it's technology is bold
when the whole world gets sold
reflected in aurora, some bloody shade of gold, it gets your astral stoned
it's a cold cold cut wrought straight to the gut, hexed up and what not
Track Name: Yura Yura
oh fuck off,
you've lived your life with love to spare
it's only fair.
jai guru deva om
nothing's gonna change my world
Track Name: Motorbike → Famima
goodbye to this
shape and self
I'm naked on a motorbike
for miles and miles and miles and miles
I've blown a kiss to my friends and I leave them
god, anything I'd do to leave
the world it bends and spins like light
I can't decide in this life so I leave it
I'd do anything to make this
new shape and self
true enough to believe in anything
for miles and miles and miles and miles
material hell, material hell, material hell, material hell
it's all I want to leave
goodbye motorbike.
