* QuarrelingSong: "A Reason For It All" with John Munro is two people discussing the death of an old lady, with Eric's character wondering what it all means, and John's replying that bad things just happen.
-->'''Eric''': We are not born just so we can die,\\
There must be an answer and we've gotta try,\\
To make some sense of it, to try to find a reason for it all.\\
'''John''': From the moment we're born, we've started to die,\\
A man can go crazy if he keeps asking why,\\
That's just how it is, don't look for a reason for it all.
