"San Mai Niku" is Moe Meguro's first full-length record. Conceived over the course of months of demo-swapping between Jojo and Bernie, the pair of songwriters teamed up with drummer Buddy Hale back in California to record the album in two sessions: the first half of the album was recorded at Hyde Street Studio C, the second half was done in the brand new (at the time) Tiny Telephone B Room.

Track Name: Goya Health and Wellness
I'm gonna throw up in your kitchen sink. I'm gonna live inside your washing machine. Welcome to Goya health and wellness. The keys are on the table, but you won't ever leave from one fake bus stop outside the house under the trees. Loyal, Goya health and wellness. Saturated and blind, the prefectural light of kindness. Goya health and wellness. Out of our minds. Unbound, unchained, unwound-- I'm spinning.
Track Name: San Mai Niku
San Mai Niku. Feel heat and touch new. I will screw myself with my if I can't let it go and think of you. My fucking job.
Track Name: Basic Human Interaction
Ai at school. She cried. Drools on her blouse. Analyze. Understand. Long hair flows. I love you. Reserved and calm, why not. I see you through basic human interaction. I love you.
Track Name: Drunk Driving
What I like about drunk driving is how I feel when I'm in the hollow of the hand. Peer down the highway and sing the song of love. If life is so raw, then rock me in the cradle of that hum. What I talk about when daiko is out. Woke up in chunder blood, please god save me.
Track Name: Sesame Cream Dream
American Gokkun dressed in white.
You are a whore, but it's alright.
A sesame cream dream I ignored.
Now I wade up.
Nakadashi is the only bond between you and I.
A feeling I lived for,
laid like a blanket.
You're cold, sterile--
like wind and snow.
But its alright.
But it's alright.
A sesame cream dream I adore.
A seame cream dream I adore.
Track Name: XX
Do you feel that it must be wrong that XX isn't equal to XY?
Aging is a process of disintegration, but my heart pumps blood. My heart pumps blood, dis-integrate from my mind.
Track Name: School
I like the bolus streamlined.
Like long silver wire's discourse,
but when it envelopes me I return to feeling...
Chained to see and think through you.
Why do I go to school?
Inflammation over thought.
Hard to talk.
I'm bored in burning buildings.
Why do I go to school?
Track Name: Okiyo!
We're lacking in consummation of...
Reading porn in convenience stores.
I saw the sweet beam of light as she followed me
and drew me a map.
Now we live like ashes fly all around okiyo.
