Lyrics. Liner Notes.


1. Single Version [3:52] -- Believe it or not, we don't even own a motorcycle.
2. "The Abortion Graveyard" [3:46] -- Based on the actual abortion graveyard on Highway 49 in Hattiesburg, MS.
3. Chipmunk Version [4:56] -- The chipmunks have given up trying to sing the songs at this point.
4. "City Boy" [5:08] -- Carrie becomes a butchy southern woman before your very ears.
5. Nell Version [1:07] -- We'd just seen the movie.
6. "The Ogre on Easter" [4:47] -- What our deformed green Easter egg might have sounded like.
7. Fade Out Faded Up [1:20] -- So you can hear what nuttiness happens after the song had faded.
