Track Name: Not Enough Tigers
tiger pits and land mines
t-bones filled with strychnine
parasites and tooth decay
extinction is underway

lumber mills and shopping malls
jungles filled with urban sprawl
they cut down your favorite tree
the new one's filled with DDT

there are too many people
there are not enough tigers

your defects are congenital
they wanna smoke your genitals
you'd like to leave that shitty zoo
but they found someone to mate with you

how's it feel to be endangered?
almost exterminated
it doesn't matter if you're stripey orange or white
there were more of you this morning than there's gonna be tonight

there are too many people
there are not enough tigers

there are too many people
there are not enough tigers

there are too many people
there are not enough tigers
Track Name: Dragon Spacesuit
this capsule around my neck. it’s like an ice cube on a chain
one quick swipe of forked tongue and this ill-fated E.V.A.’s done

a billion miles away, there’s oxygen to burn
but floating out here, wings spread wide
i can’t breath fire, can’t even fly
there is no sky

but i will not just float here sighing
i won’t rest until you’re frying

if you’re waiting for me, i’ll be waiting for you
in an atmosphere
i’ll be waiting where the skies are clear

looking out your porthole window
see me floating out in space alone
but every moment spent in vacuum
fate draws you into the zone
the danger zone

there’s no escaping your demise
i’ll feast upon your melted eyes

if you’re waiting for me, i’ll be waiting for you
in an atmosphere
i’ll be waiting where the skies are clear
Track Name: Asphyxiation
I once dreamed that I’d grow up and move far away
the stars seemed to get closer every day
there was a time when we’d explore the furthest reaches of our skies
but now it’s all come to an end
you were a city on a hill, but now it’s getting dark
you’re just a shape against the sky

i hope we learn to live with ourselves
‘cause we’re not going anywhere else

and I can’t forgive ruining this world and telling me I can never leave
if we muddle through it, maybe we’ll beat the odds
Track Name: My Robots
no one around you will remember
anything special you said
can’t compute my philosophy
we’ll be better off dead

and when the spotted sun is rising
power systems are charged
thanks to circuit technology
making sure our hearts are large

my robots are not broken
they are just as fine as yours
my robots are not broken
they are just as fine as yours

now think of something clever
where did you download it?
my brain is in a package
but i think i lost the assembly kit

my digits are not liquid
i can count to one hundred on my own
my circuit breaker’s busted
i’m shutting down in the dark, i’m scared, i’m all alone

my robots are not broken
they are just as fine as yours
my robots are not broken
they are just as fine as yours
Track Name: Lunar Colony Revolt
I can’t get off the moon no matter how hard I try
I’ve got a hundred space ships
but no fuel to fly
government regulations wreaking havoc on our kind
they’re trying to destroy our powers
they’re trying to destroy our minds

throughout the asteroids and atmospheres
there’s a way that’s clear
they’re gonna kill everyone

and when the robots are out of the shop
no time to stop
they’re gonna kill everyone

they’re cutting off supply lines
backed up against the wall
who will be the leader who is the last to fall?

they know our solar secret
to stage a coup d’tat
they know the lunar milage
is our fatal flaw

lunar colony revolt
lunar colony revolt

I can’t get off the moon no matter how hard I try
I’ve got a hundred space ships
but no fuel to fly

throughout the asteroids and atmospheres
there’s a way that’s clear
they’re gonna kill everyone

and when the robots are out of the shop
no time to stop
they’re gonna kill everyone

lunar colony revolt
lunar colony revolt
Track Name: Originality Award
send the governor up, we’re gonna send him to war
tie a chain round his neck and nail him down to the floor
peel the carpeting up and look him dead in the eye
what a mannequin, what a bloody disguise

learn my place, join the military
learn my place, join the military

make em sew, oh oh oh oh
make em sew our uniforms
make em sew, oh oh oh oh
make em sew our uniforms
make em sew, oh oh oh oh
make em sew our uniforms

going away is just a glory parade, we’re saying
thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks
you’re patriot song, it costs the blood of the young, we’re shooting
blanks blanks blanks blanks blanks blanks blanks blanks blanks
going away is just a glory parade, we’re saying
thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks
