"Bye Bye" as written by and John K. Wozniak....
Red velvet loveseat from olden times
There's nobody on it but me
Everyone's cryin they're caught up in games
Me I'm as happy as I've ever been

So, bye bye my big blue marble
Bye bye my spatial spectral
Bye bye all buddhi sahdfah'd

Red velvet animals swim in black tea
There's nobody up here but me
And every mistake I make comes back to haunt me
Still I'm as happy as I've ever been

So bye bye my big blue marble
Bye bye my spatial spectral
Bye bye all buddhi sahdfah'd
Bye bye

Bye bye my big blue marble
Bye bye my spatial spectral
Bye bye all buddhi sahdfah'd
Bye bye

Bye bye my big blue marble
Bye bye my spatial spectral
Bye bye all buddhi sahdfah'd

    General CommentWell, it seems to be about the lighter side of dying.
    The author's speaking as a person who has just been deceased and is leaving the 'big blue marble' of the world, and quite frankly says he's as happy as he's ever been.

    The author, now dead, is sitting on one of those funeral-home velvet seats, but all alone as a spirit as the living are around, crying. He considers their grief trivial, a game of the physical world he's leaving behind.

    The second verse is a little more psychadellic - animals swimming in the black tea - of the void, of space, of the afterlife? I imagine he's now left the physical world and is aswim in the spirit world.
    If all his mistakes are coming back to haunt him, this sounds almost like he's facing his Karma.

    "bothisattva" (really 'bodhisatva')is a buddhist term referring to all souls who have reached nirvana, but remain on earth to help everyone still here. 'Guardian angels' if you will. This could imply the song is about the death of an enlightened soul, who even has to bid farewell to the bodhisatva.
    'spatial spectral' is a bit on an opaque term, but I think 'spatial' = 'of space, or of the physical world' and 'spectral' = 'ghost' - another way of saying a spirit is departing.

    Oh and - I really liked this song, even if noone seems to remember it.
