Track Name: Ain't No Gin
ain't no gin
in the desert out of town
and it ain't no sin
to ask a lover to stay around
we got all night
here's just one more song
we're gonna be singing
until the morning comes
ain't no gin

there's no limes
growing on the vines behind the still
tell me one more time
you say I won't
I know you will
there's a purple flower
that blooms in the moon
oh darling let me
show you soon

there ain't no gin
there ain't no limes
if you want to mix it up tonight
stay with me darling
you know I'll treat you right

Track Name: Frogs In The Water Supply
frogs in the water supply

hold on!
we gotta get out of the way now
too late!
just ain't nothing to say
I know!
things could change any day now
so what!
we'll be Miles and Miles away

frogs in the water
how we gonna get by?

black rock
gleaming up on the west side
shut down
the pali's washed over with sand
pink smoke
the fire has reached the cane now
surf's up
the sharks are filling the bay
Track Name: Easy Tiger
Track Name: Jodo Mission
jodo mission

c'mon boys
let's go get your brother
he's out on a whale
beyond the reef
tigers and great whites
are circling faster
and the local news
has got him on repeat

let's put in down by the Mala ramp
and hope that the Buddha gives him half a chance
his vision stretches from here to Japan
and by the looks of things he hasn't got a plan

wind on the water
full of salt and breath
winds up the valley
returns in pools' depths
kids on the bridge
they jump for money
they don't even care
they think it's funny
Track Name: Phonque Musique
Track Name: Samurai

I saw the tear in your kimono
you said it was from dancing
last night you parked outside of his dojo
in your Mitsubishi Lancer

warm sake
and sakura
and you try to deny it
you've given your heart to the Samurai
and I can't abide it

oh he caught your eye
and you try to deny it
it cuts so deep
oh you know I weep
while the sun is rising

I always thought I was your one and only
your otoko ichiban
now here I sit
so sad and lonely
wondering if I'm the only one

warm sake
and sakura
and you try to deny it
you've given your heart to the Samurai
and I can't abide it
