Songs Yet to Be Sung combines Asian motifs with low brow symbolic sensibilities.

The horse headed suit wearing surfer and the dog headed koi fish riding girl with a monkey king on her back clash together in the ocean. Spurting from their collision is an ink spraying octopus clutching onto a ship engulfed in flames. Out fly good luck gods and a spiral of rainbow smoke. In the water are various Japanese symbols of luck and wealth. In the background are two Mt. Fuji's in two different seasons as the golden sun rises amongst the misty clouds.
