Track Name: Rat Riot
they run through the streets while ev'ryone sleeps
quiet as night and there's no one in sight
but the sewage heats and the mothers repeat
there is nothing to worry about

there's a shuffling of feet and a squeak underground
its the pest! Someone says with his tongue cut out
but he's wrong, proofs the quack and they carry him back
to the locked ward for mental disease

and the gathering crowd sees the sun melt down
as they're takin over the town

its a rat riot!
And the city's on fire
its a rat riot!
All that you desire

they're burning the palace and burning the cars
rats don't have nothin to lose
they ravage the churches, gnawing the cross
the rage can't at all be defused

the state is gone broke and the cops all corrupt
but slowly they're losing the ground
rats tearing apart and they cannot be stopped
the rat now is chasing the hound

and the gathering crowd sees the sun melt down
as they're takin over the town

its a rat riot!
And the city's on fire
its a rat riot!
Its life on the high wire

its a rat riot!
And the city's on fire
its a rat riot!
Its life on the high wire
Track Name: Ape Of Calypso
I am fourdimensional
I am threedimensional
I am twodimensional
I am one

(I'm an) ape in the rain < with a face so inhumane
and there is nothing to see < in that face... of meee

You remember the stories < of the ancient greeks?
Calypso waiting by the shore < you know, what she seeks?

Ulysses sailing < on the old blue vast
She waves him in, whispers < he'll see my last

They draw near and < descend the plank
She peers in his eyes and < her face goes blank

(he speaks)
I'm the ape of calypso
and I'm sinkin my ship so
you can all see it
wouldnt that be great?

Some retarded conjurer < turned him into an ape
she thinks, if I loved him < wouldn't that be rape?

However, she falls in love < with that anthropoid
she could no more look < in the eyes of a dr. freud

I'm the ape of calypso
and I'm sinkin my ship so
you can all see it
wouldnt that be great?

Ulysses turns out discontent < with his state
the gravitation of bananas < you shouldn't underestimate

(in tears she) sets him free on a raft < just to see him smile
the climate on that vessel turned to < be pretty hostile

the sea split open (parted) and a maelstrom < swallowed him down
apocalypse but not the smallest < sign of a frown

He was the ape of calypso
and he's sinkin his ship so
you could all see it
wasn't that great?
Track Name: Teeeth
No one loves you
a smile so uninspired
really don't wanna cross your path at all
you turn your eyes to me

gnashin your teeth
waiting to bite your way
really dont wanna be in my skin right now
and youre crushin my will

youre just an animal, so am I
see, we're just animals
so go for the thrill and fuck it all
fuck it all up, fuck it all, fuck it all

a mouth full of cavities
that shuns any talk
youd be better off not bein in your shoes right now
your frustation stares at me

gnashin your teeth
waiting to bite my tongue
I'd better keep to myself what I'm thinkin right now
and your teeth crush my will

youre just an animal, so am I
see, we're just animals
so shoot for the thrill and fuck it all
fuck it all up, fuck it all..
Track Name: Dogs
We are the anarchy dogs
we're pissin onto your neat clean rugs
those maggots in your brain
they'll chew you up, driving you insane

take a dive in the pond
get the shit outta here
and all there's left in your eyes
is cold, naked fear

we're crashing through your door
we're barking, whats this shit life for?
Ram our claws into white skin
cause it is that skin, you are hiding in

step outside the door
and stand in the rain
freezing to the core
it overwhelms your brain
