'cannibal eyes' there's something stinking and it followed you in you're stuck in line with a valuable friend the virus has taken and you're acting to live it's in the way you walk, it's in the way you spin we do the Downtown we do the Cough & Shake we do the Last Ditch Boogie we do the Empire State a word of caution a word from the wise: don't look into their cannibal eyes New York is sinking and the tide has come in London is burning so you head for Berlin there's always something that you can't quite pin it's in the way they stalk, it's in the way you grin [CHORUS] you think you're making it they know you're faking it they're gonna salivate and watch you fall it's not your brain they want you got the lines all wrong and now you're going down like old King Kong we're gonna do the Downtown we're gonna do the Cough & Shake we're gonna do the Last Ditch Boogie we're gonna do the Empire State a word of caution a word from the wise: never look into their cannibal eyes into their cannibal eyes into their cannibal eyes into their cannibal eyes (© 2014 brilliant fish music)

poison 03:47
'poison' you were the poison that i found in my machine you were the colours that were left upon my sleeve you were the something that horrified my sleep you were the nothing that i left there in the deep there is no heaven but i pray for rock and roll it comes to tell me that it all but saved my soul i don't know jesus but i hear he's good as gold someday i'll call him, before i get too old the bad things came in and they left an awful stain the curse was lifted but you happened all the same i know the story and i can't hear it again you were the poison that i found in my machine you were the poison that i found in my machine you were the poison that i found in my machine (© 2014 brilliant fish music)
