This is a home recording.

We will do a more professional version for one of our upcoming albums. Until then this version kicks some major ass, though!

Lyrics

Tonight the slugs are out again.

They slither through my living room.

They're welcome here at 2am

I feed them lettuce from my bread.

You neighbours think I'm sick so sick

But YOU put out the slug pellets

The slugs were here before you, bitch!

You're head's full of shit, full of shit!

Leopard slugs!

Under my floorboards!

Leopard slugs!

I piss on your pellets!

Leopard slugs!

I give 'em my lettuce!

Leopard slugs!

And then I go to sleep!

You're all out of harmony.

You're trapped in the anthropocene.

Cut it out, you sound retarded!

You're the pest cuz you're so mean!

Story

"Leopard Slugs" is based on the song "Nausea" by LA punk band X - our drummer Joe had the idea of covering "Nausea". After listening to the song, we were intrigued but felt that we couldn't really identify with the lyrics. So we wrote lyrics about an underdog non-human animal and figured that sticking up for slugs is very punk rock! As we worked on rewriting the lyrics, we also ended up changing the rest of the song somewhat, so - while it is somewhat of a derivative of "Nausea" - it very much became its own thing!

Check out "Nausea" and decide for yourself!
