Track Name: My Own Satellite
i'm my own
i'm my own

more than just a blinky light, I just put myself in flight
everybody watchin tv's gonna get a show tonight

not a star but really high, bustin moves across the sky
all my threads are solar baby, foil never looked so fly
Track Name: Bows Get You Boned
bows get you boned have you noticed before?
you were hot already but now even more
bows in your hair and even your shoes
bows get you boned and i know that it's true
bows get you boned
put a bow in your hair and walk down the street
boys look at you like you're somethin to eat
polka dots, stripes, it don't gotta match
use the power bait who knows what you'll catch
bows get you boned
hey needles
hey needles
bows get you boned now let's go and screw

Track Name: Grampas Die
hi heard your grampa died
but it's alright
he was such a great guy
guys they live shorter lives

cause grampas die
grammas have costume jewely
they dye their hair
they play the slots
they call the shots
grammas like pizza kitchen
grammas are freakin bitchen
Track Name: Mornings 4 Suckers
mornings for suckers, we sleep right through them
we don't go out until late at night
we don't get home until morning light
you do it wrong and we do it right
na na na

mornings for suckers, we sleep right through them
we like the moon we think it's alright
we like the stars cause they're not so bright
we like the sun when it's out of sight
na na na
