I can name that song in 4 lines... Name That Song!

So, after a bit of encouragement, I decided to add the "Identify the Lyrics" meme to my string of recent fluffy posts. This one was a bit tricky for me, as about half of my music collection is techno with no words.

Housemates kit_ping and 3catsjackson probably can guess many of these as they hear more of my music than they'd like. So, you two, post numbers of ones you recognize but no names, just to give others a chance.

I dug a bit and found some ecclectic songs that should be challenging. All of these are songs I've listened to at work in the past week, even. Since a lot of music I listen to has really odd "lyrics", I divided things into two categories:

LYRICS WITH ACTUAL WORDS AND SENTENCES:

11.
Isolation, I stick to the scene
I said deviation's not as fun as it seems
"Not the same, Not the same" that's all you said

12.
It’s ok - you didn’t need her anyway.
And I don’t want to hear you say
Nobody can take her place
And what more can I say-
You didn’t need her anyways.

13.
This land has lots of trousers
This land has lots of mousers
And pussycats to eat them when the sun goes down
"The American Pageant" by The Firesign Theatre (kijiraccoon)

14.
Let me tell you what it's all about,
It's called money dependence today,
And people just keep on going on
Looking at the dollar bill,
And nothing else around them.

15.
God is in the T.V.
1,000 mothers are praying for it
We're so full of hope
And so full of shit
Build a new god
to medicate and to ape
"Rock is Dead" by Marilyn Manson (madiushrat)

16.
The sky is falling / all around us
Still I’m smiling / lying in the shade
I am singing / I am laughing
I am not afraid

17.
As the moon climbs high over the dead oak tree
Spooks arrive for the midnight spree
Creepy creeps with eerie eyes
Start to shriek and harmonize
"Grim Grinning Ghosts" from Disney's Haunted Mansion (vakkotaur)

18.
You ride the waves / And don't ask where they go
You swim like lions through the crest
And bathe yourself in zebra flesh
"Standing Outside a Broken Phonebooth with Money in My Hand" by Primitive Radio Gods (arrowtwolf)

19.
And I've never soared where the hawk may soar
Or seen what the hawk might see
Never hiked to Heaven on a mountain trail
Never rode on a river's rage
"Never Did No Wanderin'" by The Folksmen from A Might Wind soundtrack (penh)

20.
I'll make fun of her ex-boyfriend
I'll ask her when she wants to meet my kid
I'll tell her she can't live without me
I'll call her "Nancy" 'til she calls me "Sid"


Bonus round:
To make a furry's easy / Anyone can do it
You take your favorite animal and mix a human through it
You modify the product / Is it really cartoony?
Is it two legs or four? / Is it straight? Is it looney?
"The Furry Song [2004 Mixdown]" by kurrelraven (xydexx)

If you recognize a song, post the title and band/group/source.
Now accepting guesses... Anyone?... crocodile, I at least expect you to take a shot at it... :)
