Notes on each track (number corresponds with track)
- The "pitch of the theme" song. The setting of the song is a "city that has never been exposed to the sun"; before making the song, the band drew a map of the city. Since Yoh insisted first on this song, it became the first track on the album.
- Ryo sings both high and low octaves for this song.
- Main character of the lyrics is a woman; the second song featuring the "misunderstood women" theme (the first being "My Rifle feat Petunia Rocks"). The song was debuted at "AID JAM 009" tour before CD release.
- 20th single.
- The theme of this song is the "mystery of the body"; "red blood cells, white blood cells" is present in the lyrics. The song was made for NHK's Minna no Uta, but was rejected on the grounds that "it's too grotesque".
- Before this song was made, a picture was drawn by the band of a "fish diving in the deep sea." Originally, the song was made with Okinawa in mind, but Naoto changed the direction of the song; he also added in the lyrics "Children of the Sun" using Okinawan dialect (Teii Nu Fuangwa?), but the result was it sounded like "Leaves of the Sun."
- First rock song Naoto has wanted to make in a long time.
- Instrumental. The song was made by Petunia Rocks, though the title implies they are only featured in it. Though the song is intrumental, Naoto is heard singing in the background; no lyrics were released with this song.
- 21st single.
- Made around the same time as "Oshare Banchou feat. Soy Sauce" was made. The theme for this summer song is "Hibiscus flowers only bloom for one day."
- Used as the ending theme for the movie The Good, The Bad, The Weird. The first song the Bass Family has made with a hard rock sound in four years, since "GOD69" was made. The lyrical theme for this song focuses on sound over meaning. The song was debuted at "AID JAM 009", and that same live footage was used in the DVD for the limited edition release of this album. The song has a lyrical part sung by Agnes-chan (AKA Agnes Miling Kaneko Chan). On a side note, Orange Range commented on the The Good, The Bad, The Weird movie homepage, saying "We were blown away by the image of this Korean movie."
- Used as the theme for NHK's Super Urugusu Egawa x Horio level (August - September). This song came about when Yoh was shocked to hear that Icarus (from Greek mythological tale) fell from the sky when the sun melted his wings. Yoh remarked, "Icarus could have flown at night too." Thus, the song is a "revival of Icarus" story.
- The band has said "Because this song was the last in track order..." it was named "Fin". On the page where the lyrics are written in the album's booklet, there is a notice that says "By the author's intentions, noise was added to the middle of the song." This song's title and lyrics have lead to speculation by fans that this album would be Orange Range's final "major album" (click here for a short look at an interpretation of this song by a Japanese fan).
