This is the 1st Children's album that comes with a Parental Advisory!

PARENTAL ADVISORY
* Strong Language
* Adult Situations
* Interesting Lyrics
* Challenging Art
* Explicit Content
* At least one joke involving a nun, a circus clown and an
excitable bunny
* We also mention that thing you did that one time in college
(which, by the way, we are still very impressed about!)
* We say FUCK alot (like a ridiculous amount - but we're artists...
and if your kid knows that word, it's really all your fault)

Track Name: Dreams 夢 Colors 色彩 Magic 魔術
Two samurai from opposing clans met upon a field of bamboo.
敵対する侍が二人、竹林の奥で出会った

Under the moonlight, long removed from life, the two lovers battle eternally.
月光のもと、命などとうに捨て去った二人の恋人は永久の戦いを続ける

The great red ONI witnesses and recites poetry.
この場を目撃した大きな赤鬼が詩を読み出す

By Walter Sickert
Translated by Courtney Swain

Soft breezes brush swords
Where blades recite their jisei
And bamboo grows tall
刀身が時勢を語り、竹がしっぽを生やすなか、優しいそよ風が刀に触れる。

Four butterflies float
As senpai and kohai lay.
Katana no ai.
蝶が四匹浮かぶなか、先輩と後輩は横たわる。刀の愛。

A Shogun's code states
Brothers of steel are not born
But forged in death's fire
将軍の掟によると、鉄の兄弟関係は生誕ではなく、死闘の炎から鍛えられるものである。

The dirt forgives death
And sows their serpentine seed
in the northeast grove.
土は死を許し、彼らの蛇のような種を北西の茂みに縫い込む。
