    Physical CD contains a track not available on Bandcamp: "Society's Girl". It was decision based on the fact that the lyrics are always misinterpreted. It's intended to be from the point of view of a boy falling in love with a girl, but people think it's about a man falling in love with a girl. The song is a social commentary on how children are influenced by the media to give their childhood up too fast, not a song about a man stalking children.

Track Name: Staring At The Wall
Got no vision at all
No ambition at all
No car to take to the mall
I've had no cash since sometime late last fall

Got no mission in life
But to listen to Shonen Knife
Watching Gilligan's Island
In my jeans you'll find my hands

Now a word from our sponsor:
You want a great career?
Program VCRs, drive rigs
Or maybe gun repair?
I don't care
I just stare at the wall

Staring at the wall
Staring at the wall

I try to say, "I can!"
But I just can't get up and clean that pie pan
Maybe When I'm 33
I'll go out and earn my G.E.D.

Once applied for a job
but they won't return my call
They shut off my cable
Electric, gas and all
And my furniture's been moved
to a truck that's marked, "U-Hall"
So I just stare at the wall

Staring at the wall
Staring at the wall
I have no equal when it comes to

Staring at the wall (4x)

wall wall wall wall
wall wall wall wall
wall wall wall wall
wall wall wall wall
wall-wall wall-wall wall-wall wall-wall
wall-wall wall-wall wall-wall wall-wall
wall-wall wall-wall wall-wall wall-wall
wall-wall wall-wall wall-wall wall-wall
wall!
Track Name: Guaranteed Hit
I wrote a song
It isn't very long
but I took such cautious effort that it
just can't go wrong.
My backup band is good
Singing only when they should
They'd play better
If one possibly could
(Possibly could)

You'll effectively
Enjoy the melody
It's been scientifically tested to appeal
Cross-demogrqphically
We're slick marketeers (Oh, yes)
We'll date Britney Spears
The press will love to publicize us
Like no one's been in years

Oh, baby...
We don't resort to subliminal tracks
That's an underhanded disgrace
So we threw discretion our the door
And sold product placement space
Sold product placement space
Buy Pepsi!

Buy this score at the music store
But wait! There's a whole lot more
We've obscure mixes galore
For you to procure

We've researched the other smashes
They lack genius or wit
Still we distilled and combined their secret traits
To create the next guaranteed hit
The next guaranteed hit

You cay it can't be done
But when we're number one
For the next fifty years, you'll wish
(Number one)
For the next fifty years, you'll wish
(Number one)
For the next fifty years, you'll wish
You fired that gun
Fired that gun
And this song is done.
Track Name: Cell Phone
I am never alone
When I am with my cell phone
I can call you broadband
From the palm of my hand
When I am with my cell phone
I am never alone
From the palm of my hand
I can call you broadband

With my cell phone
With my cell phone

I am never alone
When I am with my cell phone
Through my digital line
I'll interface any time
When I am with my cell phone
I am never alone
interface anytime
From my digital line

With my cell phone
With my cell phone

Ah ah
ah ah
ah ah
ah ah

Turn on the juice
Watch movie clips
When not in use
Clip to my hip

When I am with my cell phone
i have total access
To arcade games and the bank
News, weather and IRS
When I am with my cell phone
I feel snug and secure
I can reach out and touch
From the 83rd floor

With my cell phone
With my cell phoone

Ah ah, etc.
Track Name: AID$ Quilt
As I sit on the toilet just-a taking a doo-doo
I realize I'm all fresh out of toilet tissue

CHORUS:
Hand me the AIDS Quilt
I gotta wipe myself
Hand me the AIDS Quilt
I gotta wipe myself
Hand me the AIDS Quilt
I gotta wipe myself
Hand me the AIDS Quilt
Right now

They say you can't get AIDS from a toilet seat
NO
Nor can you from the bit of a mosquit...
O

CHORUS

We AIDS groups want from you millions in cash, please
But don't you think we'll use it to fight the disease
'Cause if we found a cure
Well, then we'd be poor

CHORUS

ANOTHER CHORUS
Track Name: Desktop Pop
Who needs a multi-million studio
When it's costing me a hundred dollars or below
A tape recorder with condenser microphone
And a Casio keyboard are all that I own

A click of a mouse
A press of a button
Composing hot tracks
And it's costing me nuttin'

CHORUS:
Desktop Pop
Desktop Pop (4x)

The drum loop is synced to a droning bassline
And I manage to write lyrics that happen to rhyne
Repeat the same notes again and again
and again and again
But be sure to program them to change now and then

Don't have to be clever
Don't have to be witty
It's okay if it sounds
Like a Windows-based MIDI

CHORUS
You don't need some kind of music degree
Just a sequencer manual and reading ability
i pressed all the right buttons, and oh, by the by
I'll tell my good friend Grammy that you said hi.

Don't need talent
Don't need wit
Don't matter if it sounds
Terrible

CHORUS
