Track Name: memento mori
take that pill or die
don’t use butter when cooking
look after your body
watch your weight, watch your weight

find a girl and marry her
two children and a dog not more
on Sunday, mow the grass
always check the door is closed

never forget to sleep
never forget breathing
the harder you work,
they say, the happier you get

don’t forget you are not able to fly
so stop trying to commit suicide

stop masturbating
only five cigarettes a day
shave everyday of the week
believe in God, he could exist

never ask too many questions
always be nice and polite
try to get some money
and save some for the gravedigging

don’t forget you are not able to fly
so stop trying to commit suicide

they won’t take our lives tonight (X 1,000)

don’t take that pill and die
and please forget to sleep
don’t close your door tonight
sometimes just stop breathing
please never mow the grass
and never be polite
don’t save the slightest penny for the gravedigging

try to commit suicide
remember you are able to fly
Track Name: kamikaze (acoustic version)
all the other insects they hate me
they say I’m weak, I’m not mean, I’m not even angry
all the other insects think I’m a shame
they say I am a corrupted specimen

all the others say I am adopted
they say I should crave blood like babies suck milk
all the other insects think I’m a shame
they say that I should stop thinking by myself

so everyday and every night and every hour
they transmit me a message
and everyday and every night and every hour
the message says, it says:

“the enemy is everyone but your own kin
and now you got to steal, and now you got to kill
for the survival of the race, you got to be a kamikaze”

but I got wings, I can fly away
I got wings, I can do it my own way
I got wings, I don’t have to join the army

the enemy is nobody
the enemy is nobody

the enemy is nobody
you got to be an anti-kamikaze

banish all armies
Track Name: social determinism and the anthill (acoustic version)
I AM A DYING WORKER ANT
CRUSHED BY ALL THE WEIGHT OF HIERARCHY
(AND) WHILE WE’RE DYING DOWN HERE
QUEENS AND KINGS FLY ABOVE WITH THEIR WINGS

SOME OF US GOT WINGS
SOME OF US JUST DON’T
WHATEVER YOUR DREAMS
YOU MIGHT NOT GET WHAT YOU WANT

I AM A DYING WORKER ANT
LEFT FOR DEAD WITHIN THE FACTORY
WITH THE MACHINES STILL RUNNING
THOSE ARE BEASTS NO WORKER ALONE CAN KILL

WE WENT ON STRIKE FOR DOZENS OF WEEKS
MANY ANTS CAME BACK ‘CAUSE THEY WERE TOO HUNGRY
WHILE KINGS AND QUEENS WERE BUSY LAUGHING
‘CAUSE THEY HAD TOO MANY LEAVES TO EAT

OUR ANTHILL IS ROTTEN
FROM TOP TO BOTTOM
WE GOT TO CHANGE THIS WORLD
FROM TOP TO BOTTOM

SO IF YOU FEEL LIKE AN ANT
SING ALONG MAN
YOU’RE NOT AN ANT
