Track Name: Defenders of the Good Times
Lyrics:

When mankind had finally leapt into space,
We found ourselves threatened by an alien race,
Armed to attack us for our sense of adventure.
“Be excellent to each other” - “Party on!”
Concepts which offend them -
For this they’d hunt us ‘til the last. So let’s down another glass,
Pack a bowl, grab your weapon of choice,
It’s time to defend the good times!

We’ve got the speed,
We’ve got the fury,
A venomous cure for our invader’s ill reason.
We’ve got the guts,
We’ve got the glory,
To forever recapture the freedom to party!

To defeat our ancient astronaut oppressors,
We sought out their weaknesses.
The solution was alcohol: chemical warfare;
A preemptive liquor strike.
Unleashing the THC gas attack,
Forged from space weed,
Fired from the Hyper-Chronic Bongzooka
Lack of tolerance was their undoing!

We’ve got the speed,
We’ve got the fury,
A venomous cure for our invader’s ill reason.
We’ve got the guts,
We’ve got the glory,
To forever recapture the freedom to party!
Track Name: First Contact High
Lyrics:

Out of the blue, came the gods
Riding chariots of fire,
Wielding magical machinery.

Picked us for mind expansion,
Offering herbs with compassion.
Perception developing superior,
Now we meet their criteria.

Biological transformation,
On this day, first contact high was made.

Descended from the sky,
Amidst a haze of smoke.
Perceive a higher plane,
Offering a kind bud.
Toking a way of life,
Teaching us their ways.
Wake and bake your brain!

Reconfigured for snack lust,
To mine resources,
In exchange for evolution.

New-found awareness and thoughts.
Seeking creative concepts.
Bending reality by will.
Life has become a thrill!

Four hundred twenty years it took,
To erect the phallic bong-elisk.

Descended from the sky,
Amidst a haze of smoke.
Perceive a higher plane,
Offering a kind bud.
Toking a way of life,
Teaching us their ways.
Wake and bake your brain!

Track Name: It's Time to Party! (Andrew W.K. cover)
Lyrics:

It’s time to party! Let’s party!
Hang out with yourself, have a crazy party!
Hey you! Let’s party!
Have a killer party and party!

Don’t even try and deny it,
Cause we’re gonna have a party tonight.
And you know we’re gonna do it tonight,
We’re gonna lose it all when you open your door!

Party! Party! It’s gonna be a party tonight!

Tension in my hand when you’re standing there,
Not thinking anything,
It’s time to party!
Doing it fast when you’re doing it long,
Keep getting your money,
It’s time to party!
Poundin’ out one, touching yourself,
It’s not too late,
It’s time to party!
Open your mouth, we’re all gonna come,
In your face!

-Nick solo-
-Mick solo-

Party! Party!
There’s gonna be a party tonight!
