song: Leopard Slugs

To be featured on "Second Chancers"
This is a home recording.
We will re-master this recording for our upcoming album. Until then this version kicks some major ass, though!
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!
Under my floorboards!
I piss on your pellets!
I give 'em my lettuce!
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!
"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!
