Track Name: A Taste Of That Sunlight
I was half asleep
when I heard you whisper my name
I answered, "Yes, Love..."
and there you were,
tapping your finger on my window pane
I looked into your eyes
and I knew who you were

You pointed out front
to your big, shiny car
You mentioned something
about traveling so far
Said you had something special
for me to see
Told me it was finally time
for me to meet Me

CH
The Lounge has been closed for a long, long time
Before we knew what happened, the door was locked
But here we are
Just you and me
The door is open again
Let's go and see

There's a bridge up ahead
that we can never cross
But I've got this feeling
that there's nothing left to lose

You were born with magic in your heart
When we make it across, you'll know just what to do

CH

So jump into my Cadillac Sedan de Ville
We'll roll in style
up and over the hill
Let's head on back
to our old neighborhood
To get a taste of that sunlight
will surely do you good

So open the door, let the adventure begin
The Lounge is finally open, it's time to head on in
Track Name: These Wheels
Have you ever seen such beauty?
Have you ever seen something so true?

I'm gonna ride to the edge of tomorrow
I'm gonna ride to the edge of my dreams
I'm gonna ride
These wheels can take me there
I'm gonna ride
These wheels can take me where

I'm gonna ride

Carry me to the edges of my dreams
Carry me to the edges of...

I'm gonna ride

I'm gonna ride like there's no tomorrow
I'm gonna ride like there's never been sorrow

Have you ever seen such beauty?
Have you ever seen something so true?
Track Name: Fat Bikes For Planet Earth
Oh what a lovely bicycle
Those are some big tires
Japanese (That bicycle has some big tires)
French (That bicycle is sexy!)

We need fat bikes
In our land

Inhabitants of Planet Earth:
We are pleased to announce— fat bikes for everyone!
(Japanese)

Put your butt on the seat
Now pedal your feet
Put your butt on the seat
Now pedal! Pedal!

We need fat bikes!
Now pedal your feet!
Four inch on the back, five inch on the front
We ain’t never going down
We ain’t never going down

I’m gonna ride

We need fat bikes!

What a beautiful bicycle! Those tires are so big!
(French)
(Spanish)
(Chinese)
(German)
(Hindi)

We need fat bikes!
Pedal those feet!
Pedal!

When I see someone riding a fat bike, I cannot seem to control myself. The beauty… the passion… the fire. I’m swept away by a tornado of desire, and I want nothing more than to ride that fat bike myself.
(French)

Inhabitants of Planet Earth:
It would seem that there has been a slight administrative oversight. Fat bikes will be delivered to the lovely inhabitants of far Arcturus.
Planet Earth, it would seem, is scheduled for destruction in ten seconds. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I’m gonna ride…
Track Name: Going Dark
It's quiet time again
You have gone dark again
I reach out, you're on my mind

It's quiet time again
You have gone dark again
Empty space is all I find

I know there's a price for you to pay
And this is probably the easiest way
For you to get by

Still, I sit and wait
for the lights to come on again
How long will it be this time?

It's quiet time again
You have gone dark again
I reach out, you're on my mind

Roll another cigarette
Grab another beer
It would be so much fun
if not for all the fear

But you've made your promises
And you know your role
But who are you now
if not bleeding from your soul

It's quiet time again
You have gone dark again
I reach out, you're on my mind

It's quiet time again
You have gone dark again
Empty space is all I find

So late in the night
or early, before dawn
Grab wallet and keys
Because it's time to move on

This will all be much easier
When it's not in your face
Safe in the past
Better put it there fast

It's quiet time again...
Track Name: Blindness
"You must be blind," you said.
"I must be blind," I said.
Track Name: Don't Cry, Samurai
In the age of the Edo
No one understands
How it feels to be a Samurai
With blood on my hands

It's only from a sense
of obligation and fear
That people greet me with hesitation
or buy me a beer

You would think that I would get
Such a nice vacation
But that isn't quite
Befitting of my station

If I should decide
That you are not my friend
I draw my sword, you draw your last breath
And meet your end

And here I am, all alone again

Don't you cry, Samurai
Samurai, don't you cry
Track Name: My Lincoln Continental
You there!
My good man!
I require your services

Bring me a brandy in a snifter
That cyclist looks like a hipster
Have him removed

My Lincoln Continental
Deuce and a Quarter
My Lincoln Continental

You there!
My good man!
I would like to foray into town
Just to have a look around

Have my driver bring around
My Lincoln Continental

My Lincoln Continental
Deuce and a Quarter
My Lincoln Continental

Two Two Five
Track Name: The Sad Truth
Excuse me, Sir...
sorry to bother you today.

Just thought you'd like to know...
You haven't been riding around
in a Lincoln 225... a Lincoln 225... at all.

Turns out...
You've been riding around, Sir...
In a Cadillac Sedan de Ville.
A Cadillac Sedan de Ville.
Cadillac Sedan de Ville, Sir...
Cadillac Sedan de Ville.

Shall I get you a drink, Sir?
Track Name: Roll The Windows Down
You can play with the radio all you want
You used to love to do that oh so much

CH
Let's go for a drive
Just you and me
Roll the windows down
All the way

I snuck across the bridge
When no one was looking
In the dying light
Gold was the color I saw

CH

I threw one leg over
Reaching for the throttle
My engine roared to life
I snuck across the bridge
In the dead of night
Wind in my face
Headed for the light

I snuck across the bridge
When no one was looking
In the dying light
Gold was the color I saw
I ran to your window
And you were there

CH

I dove head first into the water
Swimming straight down with all of my might
Salt in my eyes, darker and darker
Digging deeper for the light

You can play with the radio all you want
You used to love to do that oh so much
I ran to your window
And you were there
I ran to your window
I happened to catch your eye

CH
Track Name: The Lounge Is Open
The Lounge is open, baby
The Lounge is open
The Lounge is open, baby,

We'll do aikido, baby
That's what I'm hoping
It's getting hotter, baby
The Lounge is smokin'

The Lounge is open, baby
The Lounge is open
The Lounge is open, baby,
The Lounge is open

We'll train together, baby
With jo and bokken
We'll train forever, baby
That's what I'm hopin'

The Lounge is open, baby
The Lounge is open
The Lounge is open, baby,
The Lounge is open

Then to the onsen, baby
To do some soakin'
The Lounge is open, baby
The Lounge is open

The Lounge is open for you...
