Blue as I Do

Night hawkin ; talkin' out of my head
Hometown showdown give me the lowdown
But please don't tell me what you think i said
Give me the feelin i'm on the right track
Catch me a night train i ain't comin back
Blue as I Do

Things Rearrange

                                      Everyday things change
                                      And the world puts on a new face
                                      Certain things rearrange
                                      And this ol' world seems like a new place

                                      Yeah, secretly i've been trailin' you
                                      Like a fox that prays on the rabbit

No Longer Enough

            .......... the visual rhythms of the game of 'matched draws' called ' tehonbiki ' played here - if not the rules of the game itself, which will elude all but the most specialized audiences - are a central component of the film's mesmeric effect. Arranged to Takemitsu's hypercussive mini symphonies, these scenes draw the viewer even deeper into the vortex of the game's mysteries - just as they do the death-driven Saeko and Muraki, who finally surrender themselves to greater wins, and greater losses, when the thrills of the game are no longer enough.

Lasted So Long

        ''We're all cowards'' Coley said ''There's no such thing as courage. There's really only a fear of getting hurt and a fear of dying. That's why the human race has lasted so long ...........''
