Except on some chick's cheesy toast

Sure I fucked him, but I'm no queer!

Mac ads by the Dalai Lama
ODs, emo, balloon boy flights,
It's our Garden of Earthly Delights.
Moral panics, paranoia
Patriot Act, so nice to know ya
Bay's action flicks weren't meant to be
A fucking documentary
I think we're growing up too fast
This whole damn century's half-assed.
