Track Name: Family Mart Anthem
We're having a good time at Family Mart!
(nichols)
Back in the day when I first moved to Shanghai
I got a job teaching ABCs. The Token Foreign Guy
When all my friends went to the bar
My measly salary wouldn't get me very far
But I know, yes, I know
Where all the English Teachers go...
We're having a good time at Family Mart!
Chugging warm Suntory. Financially Smart.
(ivan)
I go to Mao, Live Bar and Yuyintang
But me and those bar prices, we don't get along
I need a beer, only one thing to do
I go down to Family Mart. I'll even get one for you.
So there I go, yeah, there I go
Smuggling beers into the show
We're having a good time at Family Mart!
Chugging warm Suntory. Financially Smart.
(everyone)
We're having a good time at Family Mart!
We're having a good time at Family Mart!
We're having a good time at Family Mart!
We're having a good time at Family Mart!

Track Name: This Pyre's For You
She resides way past the water's edge
At low tide, I gaze upon the dead
They reach for me

We live sprawled out upon the sand
She sees her world's death in my hand
Frightened, weeping

You wait so long, tireless.
This pyre's for you

Tonight we wade the rocky shore
Into the darkest wave
To sleep evermore
I'll be drowning while she sings
Songs of sympathy
Trapped inside the graves of kings
Finally at peace

This time I'll sleep at last

She resides way past the water's edge
A severed ghost in an open bed
They reach for me

We live sprawled out upon the sand
At low tide, I navigate the land
Frightened, weeping

You wait so long, tireless
This pyre's for you

Tonight we wade the rocky shore
Into the darkest wave
To sleep evermore
I'll be drowning while she sings
Songs of sympathy
Trapped inside the graves of kings
Finally at peace

This time I'll sleep at last.

Her body floats across the water
The ocean's calm betrays her song
She doesn't know why the depths consume her
Everything is still, she knows I will
Drown for her
With pleasure
The queen will save me
The ocean longs for her.
