Track Name: Eyeball Baby
stop the pop
stop the pop
stop the pop and push on the count of three
one two one two

take the eyeball anywhere, but leave the baby in the chair
floating in the air, eyeball babies everywhere

before you rinse
before you rinse
before you rinse run all the ribosomes off the new and improved baby

take the eyeball anywhere, but leave the baby in the chair
floating in the air, eyeball babies everywhere

eyeball baby eyeball baby eyeball baby...

take the eyeball anywhere, but leave the baby in the chair
floating in the air, eyeball babies everywhere
Track Name: Go Bi
relationships with women - always seem to end in disaster
some run home to ohio - others they die of cancer
i do not know which is worse - but my friends have found an answer
master my fears of the other gender and put in for a transfer

my friends said go bi, go on and give it a try
what's the worst that can happen (oh my!) you'll fall in love with a guy

will my tension soften next to men - or will it just make me harder
there's going to be things i will miss - i even liked buying you flowers
i'll go back to women whenever i want - this is just a choice of pleasures
the only difference is i got a new stick by which success is measured

my friends said go bi, go on and give it a try
what's the worst that can happen (oh my!) you'll fall in love with a guy

can we sorta take it slow i don't know if you could know but i'm really kinda new at this
well that was quick let me light some cigarettes you know this stuff really does taste thick
wait you don't want to spoon or anything you don't want to pretend you're not tired or anything
if i'm gone in the morning will it sting sorry stupid question i'll miss you too i'm thinking

i told my ex girlfriend about my new plan
she said it sounded hot she'd like to see my with another man
oh baby i wish that i'd knew because guess what this change is true
me and my boyfriend going to our old neighborhood bar going to get ourselves a booth next to you (i'm going to eat your french fries)

my friends said go bi, go on and give it a try
what's the worst that can happen (oh my!) you'll fall in love with a guy
at 88% of the population (don't matter if they're all in china)
why miss out on all of those opportunities for collaboration
Track Name: Girlfriend
i don't dance you know it you know it girlfriend these ain't dollar bills
club at the club i hate the club i like your friends of course i hate your friends woops did i say that
the fingers the fingers the fingers the fingers i've been doin the fingers for the thing the thing
how can you take it (take it) take it (take it) take it away if i've been faking it fakin it every day

i think about what you think i think that i know what you think i think that i think what you think i think what you think noooooooooooo

home home home we are back home it's not enough the stuff the stuff we have at home
there is more stuff inside that little box than everything i have and that i can give
what if i buy lots and lots of little tiny boxes just at the club you're surrounded are surrounded
look see it's what you've always wanted they're watching you they're watching you i'm watching i'm watching you

girlfriend hanging around like a daddy long leg with no web long limbs stuck on your pin head creepin around in my bed oh no here she comes
Track Name: Boyfriend
jesus you're the one for me
jesus you're the one for me

the trinity is riding three by three
got satan in a barrel gonna stuff it full of bees
st. peter he ain't gonna take no tolls
he's just gonna let the good lord roll
he got nailed to the cross he's a carpenter's son
a woodworking wonder with an iron thumb
he likes to play dead like man's best friend
he's a loyal companion all the way to the end

jesus you're the one for me
jesus you're the one for me

he knows my favorite color and what's in my pocket
checks my front door every morning to make sure i locked it
he's my mother brother sister father nephew and niece
picks me up in his arms we watch some late nite TV
when i buy jesus i pay one for three
his coupon's expiration date it is eternity
a ménage à trois with j-dog is ok'd by the state
that's the wrong lyric mom don't like it

jesus you're the one for me
jesus you're the one for me

jesus be my boyfriend...
Track Name: Apple King
pink lady and mr. fuji
tie me up let me bleed
harems churn autumnal urns
now whose that axeman coming round i said to fall in line and disperse

take me take me oh oh oh pink lady
take me oh apple queen
take me take me oh oh oh pink lady
take me to appleton

now that's enough my men are gone my war is done quit breaking me down
old battleaxe don't wax the facts i'm waning now and you're organically grown
cart me off in country style
now whose that one who splits the core i said to turn me over spin me round alright Aretha

take me take me oh oh oh pink lady
take me oh apple queen
take me take me oh oh oh pink lady
take me to appleton

i wanna go wild i oughta go wild i got a good while waiting on my apple isle
Track Name: Extinct
all the hippos and all the bimbos are going extinct and there's nothing that we can do
all the blue whales and all the pig tails are becoming just another part of history why not me
chinese aphrodisiac viagra from an endangered cat
how do we reproduce withoutout our saber tooth
no more babies no more rabies
all of these things are disappearing all around me

avid big game hunters are playing video games called deer hunter at the bar
walking and talking lots of mammals do that but where are the animals at
redwood and sequoia trees things that are bigger than me are falling to the knees but somehow i'm drunk on my feet
well if whiskey ain't for me no more then i will sit here on the floor while these things are disappearing all around me

humans humans we love them they are the best
crocodile dundee married his costar she was not a crocodile
zoophilia itsnot' the worst philia
love between a man and a woman can screw the earth
so i say no more people no more steeples
hopefully all of these things are disappearing
around me
Track Name: Turing Test
You say you want / I can't / Add a new / Algorithm
I know what I said but I can't feel your rhythm

Could be I'm not robot / I don't want / To have a body
Yeah the ROM is right on but the body is my model

Delete the words you burned / Into my ROM / Log out, move on
Bound to turn on I'm tuned in and you're gone / so long

But I was wrong
Track Name: Snacks
the words start now
i hadded a dime i hadded a snack
late late at night let's wear our yellow hats

however you are holding me now your knees won't always be there to sure me
however you are holding me now i'll warn you way (right???) before you attempt me

it's a part a
it's a part a

however you are holding me now your knees won't always be there to sure me
however you are holding me now i'll warn you way (right???) before you attempt me

however you are holding me now your knees won't always be there to sure me
whoever you are holding me now i'll warn you way (right???) before you attempt me

however you are holding me now
however you are holding me now
however you are holding me now
