Track Name: Giant Sky Rats
I give you a warning
Do not look to the sky
Avoid their gaze
Those verminous beady eyes
For they are watching
And cannot wait to respond
Bestow on you a bountiful
Barrage of what is wrong

With this state of affairs
When I cannot leave the house
Out of fear of attack
From some winged rat or mouse
But with all of this spare time
That I have spent indoors
I have been planing

The extermination
Of those giant rats from the sky
The extermination
For the safety of you and I

I must ask you
Please do not feed the birds
For they are out of control
And yet you have the nerve
To encourage this behaviour
With a certain lack of remorse
Oh wait I see you don’t live here
It's clear a tourist of course

Well I must tell you
To cut that shit out
They were out of control
But just look at them now
If you are not part of the solution
And all of that jazz
Then I have been planning

The extermination
Of those giant rats from the sky
The extermination
For the safety of you and I
Track Name: Feelers Out
I can hear creepy crawlies
Scuttling oh so softly
Along the edge of my skirting board
Feelers out, at the ready
Wondering, are there any
Morsels left from the night before

I can see creatures of the deep
Frolicking on the bed I sleep
Guess I won't sleep there no more
Feelers out at the ready
Oh my god there are so many
Guess I can just sleep on the floor

Get the boots, get the gloves
Protective goggles lift the rugs

Whenever I get the chance, I get one up on them
Separated from the rest I will take my opportunity for revenge

I can feel the floor shaking
As they continue navigating
The patch of carpet around my head
Every lap they close the gap
Preparing for a fleshy snack
I fear if I sleep I may wake up dead

Get the boots, get the gloves
Protective goggles lift the rugs

Whenever I get the chance, I get one up on them
Separated from the rest I will take my opportunity for revenge
I am your Godzilla, I am the insect killa,

Get the boots, get the gloves
Protective goggles lift the rugs
This shits about to go down
The exterminator is in town
Tonight

I am your Godzilla
I am the insect killa
Track Name: Electrical Fire
In the kitchen cooking some food
Peeling vegetables and being rude
Forgot about the water now I watch it bubble over
Forgot about the water now I watch it boil over the edge
Watch it bubble over the edge

Heat up some butter in the microwave
But the packaging was metal so its starts
An electric rave

Unfortunately no-one could be saved
No-one got out alive

My eyes are blurry and my head is shot
I dropped my bottle and it hit the rocks
All I can do, is stand and watch it bubble over
I can see you watching me over my shoulder
Watching me over my shoulder

I think I need
to think it all over again

Back in the kitchen and my pants are on fire
The microwave incident has made me a liar
Back in the kitchen and my pants are on fire
Back in the kitchen and my pants are on fire
The microwave incident has made me a liar
Back in the kitchen and my pants are on fire
Back in the kitchen and my pants are on fire
Track Name: Nonsense Verse
One bright day in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight.
Back-to-back they faced one another,
Drew their swords and shot each other.

One was blind and the other couldn't see,
So they chose a dummy for a referee.
A blind man came to see fair play,
A dumb man went to shout "hooray!"

A deaf policeman heard the noise,
And came and killed those two dead boys.
A paralysed donkey walking by,
Kicked the copper in the eye,

Sent him through a rubber wall,
Into a dry ditch and drowned them all.
(If you don't believe this lie is true,
Ask the blind man -- he saw it too!)
Track Name: Inspector
The name is
Inspector Maximum I said as I met eyes with the uniformed gentleman at the door
He stepped aside, lifted the yellow and black tape and let in me because he knew who I was and what I was there for
I walked down the stairs past several disturbing erotic paintings Into the thick red mist below
As I reached the end of my decent and walked out into the dimly lit room I caught the end of the show

Her skin was as pale as a sheet
Body still as the stagnant air
Gazing down my eyes did meet
The teeth marks beneath her hair

She had been drained like a carton of juice
By an undead criminal from space
The vampire I feared the most
And his name was zz

I took a look around the damp dank cellar and realised this must be where the devil calls his home
On the wall a dusty old space cape and in the corner of the room what I assumed to be a pile of bones
That was until the bones started moving and expanding in a terrifying mess of limbs feet and hands
and before I could even conceive what was happening the pale shape in the dark rose to form what resembled a man.

His skin was as pale as a sheet
Oil black eyes fixed on mine
The monster bared his teeth
Oh what pearly white canines

In a flash he was at the stairs
And in another I met him there
With a swift right hook to the jaw
He escaped me.

He will always be there
out of sight of me
As I am sleeping unaware
It is him intruding on my reality
The shadow in the shadows
The caped hunter in the night
I must leave this path so straight so narrow
I must leave the light

To find him, I must leave the light
To find him, I must leave the light
To find him, I must leave the light
Track Name: Space Vampire from Mars
I am able I am bodied
Forever young and ever bloodied
I am Full of teeth and ready
Just not so mentally steady

So off I go into the night
To hide away from prying eyes
To sit alone in the park
And scare people after dark

I am a monster
A space vampire from Mars
I am a monster
And my home is in the stars

I am what will do the trick
I am here to pick up chicks
I wont be stable till I'm ready
Dead rotten flat packed and buried

So off I go into the night
To hide away from prying eyes
To sit alone in the park
And scare people after dark

I am a monster
A space vampire from Mars
I am a monster
And my home is in the stars

I am a monster
A space vampire from Mars
I am a monster
And my home is in the stars

And you'll know
As you gaze into my endless eyes
I'm alone

And you'll know
As I stand beneath these darkened skies
I'm alone

These streets are draining my will and my defence
I need to get out of here
This planet is far to bright
As I lie confined
In my box I realise

I have been questioning my deeds and my conscience
I need to get out of here
It is to hot as I lie
Sticking to my coffin walls
Waiting for the precious night

I dream of the red sands in a place far from here
I need to get out of here
I have begun to feel alive
I need a plan
Before I start to humanise

I must be swift before I'm trapped in this state of mind

Inspector maximum is in the place and he's on the case
Now reinforced and fully endorsed by the powers be
To put this oh so guilty vampire back in his place
You thought you'd escaped me, monster amongst men
But I will find you
I will always find you

Incarcerated and a long long way from home
I have been waiting and I still have a long long wait to go

But forever is, forever is, a long long time
And I, And I, I will bide mine.
Track Name: I Have an Escape Plan
What do you have In your hand?
That would be the escape plan
That we have contrived, analysed and supervised
With our great minds we devised an outline
For our illegal exit from this place.
I now find hair line
Cracks lie in my great sky

How can you call that a man?
cowering on the floor.
Why wont he stand?
He has been brutalised, traumatised and victimised
by the hotshot, fuck face, human waste guards of this place.
Isolated, intimidated and humiliated.
We must take him with us.

Goodbye we are leaving

Running as fast as you can
Climb the walls and the towers
They hid behind, held the line, justified.
We will not be concentrated, confiscated, dominated.
Our Rights will be reinstated, Liberated, Liberated.
re-draw the lines, redefine.
Track Name: He Fell Over
My Clothes are Dirty
Rotten and Earthy
I have been playing
With the other children
Beneath the Trees
Aswaying the
Great outdoors
Outside my front porch
On the grass and the gravel path
That's where I slipped and had my
Fall

Blood is dripping of my finger nails
Onto my tiny body
I do my best not to make a mess
Man I am so sorry
Blood is dripping of my finger nails
Onto my tiny body
I do my best not to make a mess
Man I am so sorry

My Bones are broken
My Body Splits open
I wasn't watching
Where my feet were going
To busy playing
And now I lay down
On the gravel path
Rest my head in the grass
Sharp stones dig into my back
And that's OK
Cuz I can see the stars
As I lay
Here where I slipped and had my
Fall

Blood is dripping of my finger nails
Onto my tiny body
I do my best not to make a mess
Man I am so sorry
Blood is dripping of my finger nails
Onto my tiny body
I do my best not to make a mess
Man I am so sorry

Blood is dripping of my finger nails
Onto my fragile body, blue lights flash in the distance
Illuminate the scene shadows dancing between
The brightly clad officers making their way
In the long last light of day
And once again the sun rises in front of me
Rises in front of me. Rises In front of me.
