  • As soon as you're born, you start dying,
    So you might as well have a good time.
  • Cool blue reason empties on the page
    Your colleagues are in prison and your enemies enraged.
    • "Cool Blue Reason"
  • A golden bird that flies away, a candle's fickle flame —
    To think I held you yesterday, your love was just a game.
    • "Never There"
  • I want a girl who gets up early,
    I want a girl who stays up late,
    I want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity,
    Who uses a machete to cut through red tape.
  • In a seedy karaoke bar,
    by the banks of the mighty Bosphorus,
    is a Japanese man in a business suit
    singing "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes".
    • "Wheels"
