Track Name: Solar System
Woke up this morning and found myself gravitationaly bound
in a system of the Sun
And of all the objects that orbit the Sun
And of all of the objects, I'm one of those objects that orbit the Sun

For thousands of years, we humans worshiped the Sun
Not knowing its system
Earth was clearly the center of the universe

I'm no dwarf planet
Just a small solar system body
God might well might damn it
My small solar system body's naughty and not so haughty
Track Name: Mercury in Retrograde
Why this span of misfortune down on Earth?
Why is everything scrambled and spinning out of control?
It makes me curse, it's getting worse
I'm going burst at the end of this verse

O Mercury when you're in retrograde
The check will bounce and we won't be paid
Our travel plans to the north will suddenly go south
And we'd better closely watch what comes out of our mouths

Tits up again, my machine went tits up again
In between my fits of rage which go all the way to 10
Time is going backwards inside Big Ben
I prefer to leave the office and live in a glen
Away from the cockamamie inventions of men

O Mercury you've gone retrograde again
Better not to speak a plan or fly in a plane
O Mercury, when will this ever end?
Remind me not to hit 'Send'
I'll remain under the covers of my bed
Until I get the word from the front lines of the universe
that all is sane again
Track Name: Stickney The Crater
My triple-great grandfather on my mother's side
Was a government astronomer by the name of Asaph Hall
He wanted to prove the existence of the moons of Mars
So he studied the skies every night with his fancy telescope
But saw nothing, nothing up there except for the Planet of War
And occasional shooting stars in front of the universe's door
Utterly frustrated, he almost threw in his glove
But his wife Angelina (nee Stickney) urged him to look above

In August of 1877 the moons of Mars revealed themselves to Asaph
who now suddenly loved his wife more than ever
He named the moons Phobos and Deimos after the horses who pulled the chariot of the War God

94 years later NASA's space craft passed by the moons
And saw the huge crater on Phobos' loins
So they named it after Asaph's intrepid wife, using her maiden name

Stickney the crater was almost greater than half the diameter of Phobos' parameters
Stickney the crater result of a fate or a destiny writ large by the universe
Track Name: Venus Envy
Venus envy what dicks can't see
Venus envy for power panties
Mothers bakers troublemakers
Super power to procreate hers
Movers and shakers

Venus rhymes with penis
Penis can you see us?
Romulus killed Remus
after suckling a she wolf
She wolf can redeem us
Romulus and Remus
Urge to kill extrem-us
Sticky cold wet dream-us
Track Name: Wolf Moon
Wolf moon rising feel the sun
Wolf moon shadows on the run
Cedar branches write a tale
Wolf moon rising howling pale

Wolf moon rising turns blood red
Ancestors confiding the whispering dead
Cedar branches etch the light
Wolf moon turning red this night
