Track Name: Elevator
move your body till you lose control
something’s riding you you feel it taking hold
is that a demon dancing in your soul
feels so good when you just let go

all right tonight we lose control / all right tonight we take control
all right tonight we lose control / all right tonight we take control

move that body till they lose control
speed it up and then you take it slow
life’s a party it’s a puppet show
feels so good when they just let go

is that a demon dancing in your soul
something’s riding you you feel it taking hold
life’s a party it’s a puppet show
speed it up and then you take it take it take it slow
Track Name: Zoology
this world’s all dog eat dog
better trust your instincts
no civilization
we’re all just wild things
best be stronger eat the weaker
let’s get back to nature

they say it’s red in tooth and claw
seems so atavistic
but the key to survival
know you're an animal
don’t be fooled we’re savage creatures
let’s get back to nature
Track Name: Dark City
I think
I took a wrong turn somewhere
shouldn’t have come this way

I fear
my imagination’s
running away with me

I feel
something close behind me
whispering into my ear

I think
I shouldn’t have come this way

those things
moving in the shadows
monsters under the bed

It seems
like they’re laughing at me
voices inside my head

I’ve dreamed
of this waking nightmare
am I alive or dead

I think
I shouldn’t have come this way
Track Name: Swamp Samba
rise up, rise up from the wetlands
tune in to pick up the signal
antennas sprouting like mushrooms
receive the primal transmission

are you receiving in broadband
download this digital image
beyond the mud and the mangroves
a swamp of satellite dishes

we can run on nothing but sunshine
we don’t need your money at all
we can run on nothing but sunshine
we don’t need your money at all
we are nothing but sun
need no money at all

how will you power your vision
when jungles swallow the cities
in the primordial future
high tech’s too primitive

are you receiving in broadband
download this digital image
beyond the mud and the mangroves
a swamp of satellite dishes
Track Name: Catch Yr Death
are you short of breath
did you break your neck
gonna catch your death
what did you expect
it’s just a side effect
of sitting at your desk
they’ll pull off your legs
like you’re just an insect

they say it’s not gonna kill you
but they don’t feel it like you do
they say it’s not gonna kill you
but they don’t feel it like you do
Track Name: Riptide
big wave is coming
this is just the calm before the storm
everybody’s splashing in the breakers
they don’t want to listen to your warning

is it gonna drag you under?
are you gonna sink or swim or stay afloat?
better get a grip, stay standing
better fight against the undertow

you’re just waiting for the wave
waiting for the wave to hit the shore
waiting for the riptide

waiting for the wave to hit the shore
waiting for the riptide
waiting for the wave to hit the shore
waiting for the riptide
