Shoot for the stars! Shoot for the stars! We have a spirited glow about us The sun and sky and moon around us Blow up the walls, we will continue to glimmer Take back your spackle, we will sparkle and shimmer Goodbye Earth, Hello Houston All this fusion is just an illusion Feast your eyes, Flip your lids ... We are the satellite kids Little people, Giant squids Satellite! Satellite! Satellite kids! We have an infinite zoo around us The birds and bats and bugs above us The apes have escaped, the snakes are stranded Kibbles and bots!! the beagle has landed!! Rocket ships are hot and exciting UFO sighting, I feel like fighting Feast your eyes, Flip your lids ... We are the satellite kids Little people, Giant squids Satellite! Satellite! Satellite kids! Shoot for the stars! Shoot for the stars! Goodbye Earth, Hello Houston All this fusion is just an illusion

Holy Smokes 03:07
Shot a buzzard for dinner Angel feathers in my beer I feel like such a sinner My soul is getting seared I feel my world collapsing And the crows are closing in Faxin’ for redemption But the devil’s creepin’ in Rollin’ like a wagon wheel Rappin’ like a rattlesnake Barrelin’ banana peels Slicin’ up some cowboy cake What’s so funny? This aint no joke Burnin’ up the banjo… holy smokes!! What’s so funny? This aint no joke Jumpin’ the volcano… holy smokes!! I think we got a winner I think the price is right we got a lucky spinner I think the price is nice “Who wants to be a bastard” Freakin’ flames are closing in “Are you smarter than a demon?” Cuz the devil’s creepin’ in Rollin’ like a wagon wheel Rappin’ like a rattlesnake Makin’ all the piggies squeal Fire-up the jerky steak What’s so funny? This aint no joke Burnin’ up the banjo… holy smokes!! What’s so funny? This aint no joke Jumpin’ the volcano… holy smokes!!

I’m in a hole, I’m in a waterin’ hole. I’m in a hole, I’m in a waterin’ hole. Back off Don Sherbert… You’re making me cold. It’s a lizard’s world, Mr. Lizard’s World. It’s a lizard’s world, Mr. Lizard’s World. It’s a lizard’s world, Mr. Lizard’s World. And my blood is cold. I’m in a ditch, I’m in a drainage ditch I’m in a ditch, I’m in a drainage ditch Don’t need no traffic patterns or a boiler switch It’s a lizard’s world, Mr. Lizard’s World. It’s a lizard’s world, Mr. Lizard’s World. It’s a lizard’s world, Mr. Lizard’s World. And my blood is cold. I’m in a hole, I’m in a waterin’ hole. I’m in a hole, I’m in a waterin’ hole.

Sometimes life can feel like ancient times Standing in the unemployment line Graffiti and garbage flood this town But don’t ever let it get you down Look, there’s Old Man Gravy Let's put a nickel in his can He’s missing both his arms But he’s doing what he can Hey Mr. Sparks Have you met my friend Flint? Right now the streets are grey But we’re going to paint the town mint Hey Mr. Sparks Have you met my friend Flint? Right now the streets are grey But we’re going to paint the town mint Hey Mrs. Steel Have you seen my friend Flint? Right now the streets are grey But we’re going to paint the town mint

Omni Inn 05:50
I make my way down the avenue Streets so dark don’t know what to do Feeling weary and I need some sleep But I can’t stop counting sheep So I staggered down the avenue like a black cat in the rain tracking down the haunted train white rats drown in sour wine they must have lost their minds Sleepwalking on the moon mind-bending like a spoon Am I in hell? NOOOO! You're at the Omni Hotel A strange thing happened on the avenue the strangest things came into view Fireflies flicker at the sign ahead The neon blue turns a ghostly red I disappeared from the avenue I see a figure tall and thin Bony fingers on my skin Searching for my vital signs already lost my mind Sleepwalking on the moon mind-bending like a spoon Am I in hell? NOOOO! You're at the Omni Hotel
