Shoot it at the Sun (2014)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Garbage Corridor

 

Bought a little place down by the Garbage Corridor

House was nice, the yard was big, it was all we could afford

Couldn’t see the rubbish. Couldn’t smell it rot

And when we saw that picket fence, we thought we reached the top

 

 

Poison, plastic islands rolling up to every shore

Marshlands turned to wastelands by 2034

Pools of precious metals in contaminated parks

Why pile it in corners? Just aim it at the mark!

 

(Chorus)

 

Shoot it at the Sun.  Shoot it at the Sun

When you don’t know what to do with it, just, shoot it at the Sun

Shoot it at the Sun.  Shoot it at the Sun

Ohhh, when you got a problem, just, shoot it at the sun

 

 

Carbon fiber cables pulling shit up into space

Momentum kept it moving till it hit the sun  right in the face

Machines they got faster.  That shit kept piling up

And then I smelled the rubbish even with the windows shut

 

Another great  idea by the brilliant human race

Keep them big ones coming.  Never learn from your mistakes

Always need a quick fix.  Only thinking about today

Relatively speaking, you can’t just make it go away!

 

(Chorus 2x)

 

It was beautiful, that solar flare, that breath of fire

I hid in the basement, like Vonnegut in Dresden

And when I came up nothing but ashes and melted steel.

 

Oh what a mess we left again! 

 

Grand Lilliputian

 

There is space then theres the universe

theyre no the same thing though we think they are when we are young

we're just a trace like an old photograph

but in our place we crave significance and wonder why

 

 

There is the earth, then theres the world we have

Theyr’e not the same thing though we think they are

when time seems scarce

 

She gave us birth.  She gave us things to fear

brought us happiness with loe to give and metaphor

 

(chorus)

 

Stars do their time. Where do they go when they die?

What do you fear?  We're lucky to be here.

And then its gone, and it moves on.  The future's past.  The shadow’s left beyond

 

 

There is life, then theres the world we have

Theyre not the same thing though we think they are while we're online

But we compose, we make discoveries,

mathematics, alphabets, formalities

 

 

A Piece a Junk

 

Floating and spinning, in silence, I’m speeding.

Useful I once was

Lost my way so long ago, searching for the stars you know,

I’m floating.

 

Hoping and waiting for presence of passing

Useless and drifting,

Gravity gets in the way, an old friend getting pulled away

I’m hoping.

 

If I fall into the ocean or break off into space

I would rather harbor parasites then help the human race

Taken all the photographs of your islands and your seas

Used me up, got what you needed, now you don’t care about me

 

Don’t care about me.

 

 

Moon Saloon

 

Scanned by a robot bosses daughter in tow

Gave me back my lazer blaster, they didn't know

that I'm the fastest, freelance, freight-runner.

 

Gonna Warm you up baby with some whiskey and tea.

This is why they come here, soon you'll agree,

When that hot tot hits the back of your throat!! Woooo-eeeey!

 

(chorus)

 

Hot Toddy - Warm your body,

cause its cold out there,

where there ain't no air

 

Ya got a hot, oh Toddy,

Ya gotta moooove your body, 

Ohhh, Dock your tin, and come on in,

Get a thrill and a room, at The Moon Saloon.

 

Joint is really jumpin and the bands outta site.

Take my hand let's hit the floor get dancin tonight -

 

Intergallactic, Space, Hop!

 

My buddy Franky's mackin on a couple a borgs,

Tina's doin shots with the Moon Saloon whores,

Another round of Toddies for all of my friends

 

Then Fly home

 

SpaceHead

                                         

I can touch my nose.  Moonwalk a straight line.

Give me back my keys.  I can fly home fine.

You better move on over to the cockpit side

Take a nap on my lap.  Lets go for a ride.

 

We can see a black hole.  Hop from star to star.

Get in a high speed chase. Let’s go for a ride.

You better slide on over to the captain’s side.

Have a seat on my lap, let’s go for a ride.

 

(chorus)

 

I wanna fly high with you.

Interstellar traveling with you.

Asteroids and stars.  Cosmic dust and mars.

Trippin in space with you.

 

Trippin in space with you.

 

 Apolitical Science

 

I am a rocket ship right now.

I show the future through a different set of eyes.

I see the pyramids below.

Low orbit planetary probe.

 

I am a water bear right now.

I see the future with a different set of eyes.

I am alive in moss and ice.

I survived in outer space.

 

(bridge)

 

You took me to another place, you held me hand made me feel safe.

Opened up my eyes and mind, First time I knew I did not know

This room is dark I have to go, the world is bigger than my own.

I’m not the only pea in the pod.

I’m the immortal HELA cell.

Henrietta’s fighting, farming, feeding playful soul.

I survived in outer space.

I help heal the human race.

 

Awesome Solar Rocket Ship

 

She wore a black veil on our very first trip

As we  neared a little star aboard our awesome solar rocket ship

Didn’t need a stearing wheel just pointed and it went

Two hearts in one direction for us that star was meant.

Now I ride alone on hybrid busses in the rain

Driver, leave me at the next train

To a place where I can smile again

 

(bridge_

On that star we held hands, skipped across black sands, climbed magenta cliffs.

If I only knew then what I know now,

That she was Kali who came to kill that side of me

That smelled like damp comfort, oblivion, bad habits and old ways.

 

She did the job laughing on her way out the door

With a sickle in one hand, my head in her left,

The blood of my heart half eaten, dribbling, down her chin

With fire in her Pollock gotcha last eyes.

 

She wore a black veil on our very first trip

As we neared a little star aboard our awesome solar rocket ship

Didn’t need a steering wheel just pointed and it went

Two hearts in one direction for us that star was meant. (3x)

 

These Things

 

Once I saw a ball of fire Shoot across the night sky
The most beautiful thing But I never knew why

Was it September or was it July

I don't remember we were really high


 

I had a girl back then She was pretty and scared
I knew nothing And she barely cared

We drank, he drove real fast Wen went on a tear

I don't know her now but I'm glad she was there


(chorus)

 

Oh, these things

Oh, these things. They don't know that they be

Oh, these things
Oh, these things. They don't know that they be


 

Jolted by a static charge Passing through my hands
Positive and negative Bonding in the air

Everything is random Nothing can truly be planned

Each story has to end as the universe expands


(chorus)

Once I saw a ball of fire Shoot across the night sky
Moments burned to memories Etched in my mind

we're aiming for the stars But we can't travel through time

I don't remember we were really high

Brainwaves transferring Electric charge
Particles and theories We were really far

 

Particles and theories We were really high

 

 Stranger

 

It was a cloudy day - I saw the writing on the wall

And when you came to me - I made no fuss at all – I made no fuss at all.

 

Scars for all to see – You smiling, laughing at the bar

And when you came for me – I made no fuss at all – I made no fuss at all

 

Violin and Drum – A coiled dollar bill.

Secrets you shared with me – I saw the writing on the wall (3x)

 

(chorus)

 

Stranger Stranger, lets fly to outer space –

These wings are on fire and I need a cooler place,

Where I can see colors and learn a thing or two about you.

 

Stranger, Stranger, I just robbed a bank –

The drugs are in the car and there's gas in the tank

Lets go on a ride to the planetary side of you …

 

Wings of orange & black, sprawl out of a cocoon

How can it happen like that? Maybe you can too …

I feel you everywhere – The bloody writing on the wall -

 

The bed we shake and share – Apologies when you're not there (3x)

 

Stranger, Stranger, Have another drink –

Cause when you get pourin, I like how you think

About Howl and songs during moonlight walks with you.

 

Stranger, Stranger, I didn't hear your words –

or maybe you were talkin and I put down the phone

I'd rather stay blind and keep taking magic rides with you.

 

Stranger, Stranger lets fly to outer space –

These wings are on fire and I need a cooler place

Where I can see colors and learn a thing or two about you.

 

 White Balloon

 

White balloon falls in front of me

I cover it with glue

It sticks to me as it comes up off the ground

Headin towards the moon

(Chorus)

Don’t look back. I’m headin to outer space

Never look back, I’m goin somewhere new today

Don’t look back I’m headin to outer space

Never look back I’m goin somewhere new today…

 

I just realized there are some places I cant breath,

Like outside our atmosphere

It hurts inside as my ribs cave in on me

But I am free of fear

(Chorus)

(Instrumental)

(Repeat chorus)

 

 It's a no fit


From Columbus to stuffed peppers

we've always been the first

Not the Greeks and Vikings?

 

No! It was Italia!

 

 

We built a place in outer space

right next to the moon

Its big and round, Its our new town

 Mundo Spaziale!

 

It may not be on earth

But its part of Italy

We'll bring our favorite artifacts

Like Tore' Di Piza!

 

We knocked it over and brought it down

to the garbage corridor

They let us try

It was too damn wide

So we threw it in a pit!

 

(chorus)

 

Its a no fit. Its a no fit

We tried to get it on but its a no fit

Itsa no fit - its a no fit 

A shame she couldnt handle

Its a no fit

 

Broccoli Rabe and homemade wine

Culture, identity

Tiramassu, Pavarotti tunes,

and a couple Ferraris!!

 

We needed the coliseum there 

so we brought it bit by bit

Couldn't put it back together

so we sent it in orbit!!

 

(chorus extended)
