Track Name: Grasshopper
Grasshopper

I dreamt of grasshoppers as I slept in my tent
When I woke up - I feel like jumping
So - I jumped from mountain to mountain
Until I reached a place that was very strange

A city with very very tall buildings
People are all office workers, jumping
and jumping
From window to window
From building to building -

Sense? Do you expect sense in your dreams?
Track Name: Unang Kita
Unang Kita

Noong una tayong nagkita
Kakaiba ang kislap ng mga mata
Punong-puno ng mga pangarap
at pag-asa
Nagbibigay ng ligaya at sigla

- At sa iyong muling paglalakbay
Sana ay mas matagumpay
Anoman ang hinahanap sa buhay
Sana ay matupad - makamtan

At sa ating muling pagkikita
Sana ay mas masaya
Sana'y nandyan pa ang ningning
ng mga mata
Nagbibigay ng ligaya at sigla

- At sa iyong muling paglalakbay
Sana ay mas matagumpay
Anuman ang hinahanap sa buhay
Sana ay matupad - makamtan
Track Name: The Ghost of Janis the Rocker
The Ghost of Janis the Rocker

The ghost of Janis the rocker
Came while I was about to paint
She went directly to the kitchen
And ate a spoiled fried chicken

- The Ghost of Janis the Rocker

Her stomach became big and bigger
She vomitted Green Green Green
She put the liquid into a container
She approached me and ordered me to drink

- The Ghost of Janis the Rocker

I had to take it because I was frightened
I had to drink the sticky Green Green Green
I vomitted on the canvass the whole evening
I passed out - when I woke up it was morning

- The Ghost of Janis the Rocker

Next thing I knew a buyer came
He saw the Canvass with the Green Green Green
And he said "Excellent, this is art. How much is the painting?"

- And he gave me money and when I looked
at one corner - I saw Janis the rocker, smiling and laughing -

- The Ghost of Janis the Rocker
Track Name: Ilong
Ilong

- Akala ko'y panaginip lang
Yon pala at katotohanan
Nang salatin ko ang mukha
Ilong ay nawawala -

O ilong ikaw ay nasaan
Ikaw ba ay ninakaw, natanggal
O kusang humiwalay -

O siguro yung ilong ay nagkapaa
At ngayon ay namamasyal sa Luneta
O siguro'y pumunta sa restoran
At nakatulog sa loob ng tinapay

- O ilong ikaw ay nasaan
Ikaw ba'y palaman sa tinapay?
Dyoskopo, Dyoskopo wag sanang
Makain ng mamang matakaw
Ilong na palaman sa tinapay

- O ilong ikaw ay nasaan?
O ilong - Nasaan?

Tayo'y mga Pinoy - Tayo'y hindi Kano
Wag kang mahihiya, kung ang
ilong mo ay nawawala -
Track Name: Itanong Mo Sa Bulkang Mayon
Itanong Mo Sa Bulkang Mayon

Nang sumabog ang Mayon sa Bikol
Araw ng kasal nina Jun at Azon
Habang sila'y nagsisipagsaya
Bumuga ang bulkan ng usok at lava

- Ang lugar na pinagdausan ng kasal
Malapit na malapit sa bulkan
Mga tao'y takot na nagtakbuhan
Sina Jun at Azon ay naiwan

Muling dumagundong ang Bulkang Mayon
Dumura ng mga bato at apoy
Mahigpit na nagyakap sina Jun at Azon
Habang ang paligid ay nililindol

- Mayamaya lang tumahimik ang bulkan
Si Azon ay umiiyak nang matagpuan
Pangalan ni Jun ang kanyang isinisigaw
Pangalan ni Jun ang isinisigaw

Makalipas ang ilang buwan nanganak si Azon
Babae at kamukhang-kamukha ni Jun
Lumaki syang maganda tulad ni Azon
Pangalan nya'y Magayon - palayaw ay Mayon

- Ngayon sina Mayon ay nasa paanan ng Mayon
Hindi ka ba natatakot? Sya ay aking tinanong
At ang sagot nya'y itanong mo sa Bulkang Mayon
Ang sagot itanong mo sa Bulkang Mayon

- Nang sumabog ang Bulkang Mayon
Track Name: KyutiKyuti
KyutiKyuti

Eto ay kwento ng seksing kaibigan
KyutiKyuti ang kanyang pangalan
Araw-araw pagkain nya'y gulay
Gulay na talong talbos kangkong sitaw

Tinanong ko si seksi ba't hindi sya nagkakarne
Nadala na raw sya sa mga pangyayari
Isang gabi noon sya raw ay nagtatatatae
Nagsipaglabasan - mga buhay na bulate

- Mga bulate ni KyutiKyuti
Pwede sigurong gawing spaghetti

Sandali - sandali lang kaibigan
Ba't napunta sa bulate ang usapan
Di ba ito'y tungkol sa mga gulay
Ba't napadpad sa mga bulate
ni KyutiKyuti -

- Mga bulate ni KyutiKyuti
Pwede sigurong gawing spaghetti
Track Name: Kambal na Bundok
Kambal na Bundok

Sa aking pagpunta sa kambal na bundok
Nadaan ako sa kambal na ilog
Kambal na paru-paro lumilipad
Sa ibabaw ng kambal na bulaklak

- Sa taas ay may kambal na bahaghari
Kambal na araw ay nakangiti

Sa paanan ng kambal na bundok
May kambal na matandang nakaluhod
Hawak-hawak ang kambal na krus
Sugatan ang kanilang kambal na tuhod

- Sa taas ay may kambal na bahaghari
Kambal na araw ay nakangiti

Sa tuktok ng kambal na bundok
Kambal na ulap ay aking natisod
Sa kambal na bato ako ay kumalabog
Nabasag ang aking kambal na itlog

- Sa taas ay may kambal na bahaghari
Kambal na araw ay nakangiti
Track Name: Twin Mountain
Twin Mountain

On the way to a twin mountain
I passed by a Twin River
I saw a twin frog jumping
A twin butterfly circling a twin flower

- Over me is a twin rainbow
Beneath me is my twin shadow

At the foot of the twin mountain
There's a twin spring with a twin sister
Offering me a twin glass of wine
I took a twin drink and started the twin climb

- Over me is a twin rainbow
Beneath me is my twin shadow

At the peak of the twin mountain
There's a twin bird flying
A twin cloud floating
And a twin Sun shining

- Over me is a twin rainbow
Beneath me is my twin shadow

- Then all of a sudden
The twin sister came
With a twin smile
And a twin glass of wine -

- Over me is a twin rainbow
Beneath me is my twin shadow

- A twin poet walking
over a twin mountain
Suddenly
There's a twin thunder
and they were hit by a
Twin Lightning

Sense - Do you think there's any sense in what I'm saying? Sense - Nothing makes sense in this world - Maybe the only thing that makes sense is hearing and smelling and hearing the sound of your own fart - my friend.
Track Name: Titser Dear
Titser Dear

Ayan na - ayan na naman
Ang magaling kong titser
Ako'y nalalasing sa kanyang
mga ini-explain
Tungkol sa economics ay
Kung anu-anong numbers -

Titser titser wag mo nang pabigatin
Ulo ko'y sumasakit at ako'y naprapraning
Sa sobrang homework at kung anu-anong assignments
Titser titser wag mo nang pabigatin
Simpli lang naman ang aking hinihiling
Pabayaan mo na lang akong
Kumanta at magdrowing

Titser titser ako'y nalalasing
Sa iyong mga ini-explain
Tungkol sa economics at
Kung anu-anong numbers

Simpli lang naman ang hilig ko
Ang kumanta at magdrowing
Track Name: Ba't Ngayon Lang Dumating
Ba't Ngayon Lang Dumating

Saan ka na naman ba nanggaling?
Ba't ngayon lang dumating
Sa bagay - okey lang sa akin
Andami naman dyang dapat gawin

- Pero, minsan ay nasasabik
Sa yong mga yakap at halik
Mga tingin mong napakalagkit
Hinahanap-hanap, lambing ng iyong tinging

Siguro - pag narinig ang awiting ito
Sasabihing bola-bola lang ito
Aaminin ko - me halong basketbol 'to
Pero, miss na miss na kita, yan ang totoo
Miss na miss na kita - yan ang totoo

Saan ka na naman ba nanggaling
Ba't ngayon lang dumating?
