"Halloween Snow" as written by and Ezra Mordechai Furman....
Baby, you're not afraid of flying
You just think you are
It's all mental, darling
Think about how safe we are

Pretty soon we'll be in Japan
We can get everything done
And not too long after that we'll be married
Won't that be fun?

She says, Look around this flight
Look at all these people goin' to Japan
They seem mostly black
I don't see a single asian

What'd the pilot just say?
We're headed to Zaire?
Somehow we must have made a mistake
We shouldn't be here

Oh no, I shoulda known by the Halloween snow
That this trip just could not go away
I'll be lost in the jungle with my fiance
Oh damn, I should be dating a more confidant man
I says, Honey please don't be cruel
Words come out of your mouth into a puddle of drool

What are we gonna do when we land, she says
We're not prepared for this
Baby, stop talking so much
It's making me nervous

How about instead of being afraid of flying
And thinkin' 'bout our imminent time
You sneak off five minutes after me
Let's go to the airplane bathroom

She says, Honey not now
It's the wrong time
My lips began to move and I said
I'll give you the wrong time

It's two in the morning
And we're on the wrong flight
But when we're lost in Africa
It'll be alright

I think I wanna see the purple and pink
Of the sunset shining through the trees
I'm never gonna learn to speak Japanese
I know I wanna stand in the Halloween snow
But I don't know how I ended up this year
And everything is happenin' too soon this year

Oh, too soon!
We're only kids!

We're touching down
And maybe I don't love you
The ground looks so brown
This can't be Japan, I know it can't

This is scarier
Than a hundred million plane wrecks
You seem so strange and I wonder
I achingly wonder what's gonna happen next
