"'Japanese Schoolgirl Mapping Device' arrives suitably dressed in oriental schoolgirl uniforms with the most simple of keyboard riffs and you wonder what this is all about, what can be in the San Francisco drinking water?"
-Trev Faull, UK



It’s easy to find your piece of mind
It’s easy to find what you left behind
It’s all about positioning and global stance
It’s all about fine etiquette and designer pants

When you’re feeling lost
When time has passed you by
Remember that it’s easy if you try…

This Japanese Schoolgirl Mapping Device

So open up your book bag
And grab your sparkly gel pen
And your Tare-Panda notebook
Right there beside your cell phone

I want you please to write this down
‘Cause every boy in every town
Needs a Japanese Schoolgirl Mapping Device
A Japanese Schoolgirl Mapping Device
