Track Name: (Theme From) Here Come The Kids
AW!
HERE COME THE KIDS!
DANG.
HERE COME THE KIDS.
Track Name: I'm Alive!
I PASSED OUT LAST NIGHT
KNOCKED OUT--ASLEEP
INSIDE A WOODEN BOX
I WAS BURIED OH-SO DEEP

BANGIN' ON THE COFFIN DOOR, SCREAMIN' BLOODY MURDER UNDERGROUND
HOPING THAT SOMEBODY'LL FEEL THE VIBRATION FROM THE SOUND

WHAT A VICIOUS PRANK TO PLAY
I'M ALIVE! I'M ALIVE! I'M ALIVE! I'M ALIVE! I'M ALIVE!
YEAH THERE AIN'T MUCH ELSE TO SAY
I'M ALIVE SO ALIVE I'M ALIVE I'M ALIVE I'M ALIVE!

WELL THERE AINT NO AIR
AND THERE AINT NO ROOM
I FEEL SO CRAMPED
MAN, I'M DOOMED!

BANGIN' ON THE COFFIN DOOR, SCREAMIN' BLOODY MURDER UNDERGROUND
HOPING THAT SOMEBODY'LL FEEL THE VIBRATION FROM THE SOUND

WHERE ARE MY FRIENDS???
WHERE IS SOME FOOD???
I AM SO THIRSTY
I AM SO SCREWED

MISSING HALF MY SUMMER
FEELINGS HURT
MAN IT'S SUCH A BUMMER IN
THE DIRT.
Track Name: Reign of the Rat
R! A! T! S!
They’re gnawing through the drywall
I hear the chomps
Theyre falling off the ceiling
I hear the stomps
Their little noses sniffing
Their tiny claws
They can’t be governed
They have no laws

Better make them feel okay
It looks like they’re here to stay
Scared away the dog and cat
It’s official where I’m at’s
The reign of the rat
(and I’m open to that)

R! A! T! S!
I’ve counted thirty thousand
In just the hall
I think they’re growing on me
I’ve named them all
I think I’ll welcome them
The reign won’t fall
I’ll take them on vacation
And to the mall

R! A! T! S!
They’re coming in my bedroom
They can’t be stopped
They’re stealing all my Wifi
I’ll call the cops
I think their taking over
And that’s okay
When all of this is over
I'll move away
Track Name: Moon Dater
THERE'S A SEXY SATELLITE
I SAW IT THROUGH MY SCOPE
BEEN SPYING EVERY NIGHT
I DON’T THINK I CAN COPE
I LOVE ITS CRATERS
AND ITS DIFFERENT ATMOSPHERES
BEEN WANTING TO ASK IT
FOR SO MANY YEARS


I GOTTA FEELIN THAT I’M GONNA TAKE THE MOON ON A DATE
WE'RE GONNA DANCE, WE'LL SEE A MOVIE, DRINK A WINE, WE'RE GONNA ICE SKATE
I GOTTA FEELIN THAT I’M GONNA TAKE THE MOON ON A DATE
SO GRAB YOUR PURSE GET IN THE CAR BECAUSE IT’S GONNA BE GREAT!

I’LL PAY FOR DINNER
AND I’LL LISTEN TO IT TALK
COMPLIMENT IT ON
ITS DIFFERENT TYPES OF ROCK.
WHERE’S ALL THE GRAVITY?
IS THAT A NEW PERFUME?
YOU WANNA DO AN ORBIT
YOU WANNA GET A ROOM?

THINK ABOUT ATOMIC WEIGHT
THINK ABOUT A LONG ROTATE
THINK ABOUT THE CRESCENT PHASE
THINK ABOUT THE GAMMA RAYS
THINK ABOUT A FULL ECLIPSE
THINK ABOUT THE RADAR BLIPS
LUNAR MODULES, ROCKET SHIPS
I’M GONNA KISS THE MOON ON THE LIPS
Track Name: Down at the Duckpond
Down at the duckpond
I spend my nights
I feed the animals
and bet on the fights
Down at the duckpond
Living for free
Down at the duckpond
Please leave me be

People say it's dangerous
to sit upon this bench
I don't mind the honking
I don't mind the stench
Gotta lotta pent up rage
Gotta lotta spark
I’m gonna feed the ducks tonight
And sit here in the dark

Down at the duckpond
Theyre all my pets
I do all my yelling
I make my threats
Down at the duckpond
I get my thrills
I have no debts
But man I got bills

Down at the duckpond
Down at the duckpond
Track Name: Haunted Lawn
Bodies in the front yard
Parties in the back.
Brains piled high near the keg
in a stack
It's cursed.
It's hexed.
I think my lawn is haunted
and I think it wants me next.

The grass is black
the driveway can glow
The garden's gonna get ya
just thought you should know
It ate my neighbors
It ate my jeep
It's kinda scary
but the rent is real cheap

What you're standing on
is a haunted lawn
come on

Stay inside
and don't use the swing
give it fertilizer
and you'll live through the spring
Don't try to mow it
there ain't any need
It's haunted by the ghost
of Johnny Appleseed

My life isn't what I wanted
Cause my lawn, they say, is haunted
Track Name: Jump This Gorge
I REV MY CYCLE
AND I LOOK TO THE CROWD
THEY’RE ROARIN
ADJUST MY HELMET
AND I JUST FEEL PROUD
I’M SOARIN
I’M DOWN THE RAMP
I’M IN THE AIR
MY CAPE IS FLAPPIN IN THE BREEZE

I’VE BROKEN EVERY BONE
BUT IT WAS WORTH IT
BABY
I GOT THE MOST ENDORSEMENT DEALS
ON EARTH NOW
MAYBE
AND ALL I GOTTA DO
IS CLOSE MY EYES
AND HIT THE GAS


THE ENGINE’S HOT
THE CANYON’S BROWN
ANNOUNCERS BROADCAST
TO THE TOWN
IT’S UP TO ME
TO BUCKLE DOWN
AND JUMP THIS GORGE

THE SUN IT BEATS
MY SWEAT IT POURS
MY MOTORCYCLE DOES
ITS ROARS
IT’S LIFE OR DEATH
THE CHOICE IS YOURS
TO JUMP THIS GORGE


MY MILES PER HOUR
ARE AS HIGH AS I
CAN PUSH ‘EM
I NEED SOME SILENCE
AND I DO MY BEST
TO SHUSH ‘EM
I GOT A JOB TO DO
AND DAMMIT I AM READY
FOR WHATEVER…YA GOT

A WHIFF OF GASOLINE
A DISTANT EAGLE
SCREECHIN’
AN OPEN STRETCH OF VALLEY
SEEMS IT’S EVER
REACHIN’
IT’S ALL OR NOTHIN ITS MY LIFE
I’M COUNTIN DOWN TO
TAKE-OFF TIME

READY? SET? GO
NEVER SAY NO
READY? SET? GO
NEVER SAY NO
Track Name: Outta This World (ft. D. Gookin)
there's something different about her eyes
they're blacked out so big & shiney and wide
i think she's got me in a trance hypnotized with 1 glance
her threads are rad and all her shirts are tie dyed

there's something different about her skin
smooth and green and like some kind of reptilian
i asked her what she does for fun if she wants to come see 2 ton
she said yea yo i can hook up a show at area 51

she's out of this world
she's outta this world

she said she's visiting from out of town
she crashed her ride and i said she could crash on my couch
i told her id show her a good time
but she said 'just take me to ur dealer' and flashed me a peace sign

i said id help her find a job online
she's so qualified cause she can move objects with her mind
she's so different, she's so dope, she's like nothing ie ever seen
all i know is that she makes me want to believe
Track Name: Watchin' Cartoons
Roadrunner’s on in a minute or two
Then after that it’s Mr. Magoo
I’m gonna watch until my eyes fall out
Gumby and the Jetsons are all I care about

I got a bowl of pretzels and a bottle of yoo-hoo
There really isn’t anything that I’d rather do

Antennae’s busted and the knobs are stuck
But I can still see Snoopy so I ain’t outta luck
????? ?????? ??????? you know
One more hour of popeye and I’m ready to go

The world could end up covered in a blanket of smog
And I really wouldn’t care, if I could still see droopy dog
We could crash into the sun and meet all of our ends
But I’m just gonna sit here and watch Garfield and Friends

Ooooo
I’m gonna sit and watch cartoons
As your world lies in ruins
I’ll just sit and watch cartoons
