Track Name: Genetically Engineered Rock n' Roll
Some say punk rock is dead
but so are dinosaurs
and with the right technology
we can bring both back to life.
Track Name: Dinobots
Bred in a lab from outdated science
They are more than meets the eye.
More than just an updated appliance
they are here and you're gonna die.

Dino dino dinobots dino dino dinobots. dino dino dinobots whoaaaah

You're talking smack and now you're dead,
you better not throw rocks at Grimlocks head.
He's not a kisser, he is KING.
And next to him you're just nothing

Dino dino dinobots dino dino dinobots dino dino dinobots whoaaah

A tar pit was their grave
Stuck in there with 'ol shockwave.
When they got out it was time to brawl
All is one and one for all.
Track Name: 555-CREEPS
Raptors making phone calls, making phone calls, making phone calls.
Raptors making phone calls, making phone calls, making phone calls.

Its the night of the creeps and they're all coming after me.
I hear their static oh so clear I put that phone up to my ear.

Don't you try to argue, try to fight it, they're gonna get you.
Look out they're right behind you, they're coming for you, they aim to kill you.

Its the night of the creeps and they're all coming after me.
I hear their static oh so clear I put that phone up to my ear.
Track Name: Indominus
We created this a monster made to entertain
Attendance figures down so we can all shut off our brains
The world holds it breath and waits to see the end times come
We'll be tried and charged in the court of public opinion

Indominus REX REX REX

A multimillionaire we get to see his dream come true
Make it great again this creatures steps on me and you
We need to build a wall to hold it back and keep it contained
The scratches up the side attempts to climb are all in vain

INDOMINUS REX REX REX

We let the rich play god i don't think we will ever learn
This isn't what we want but this is what we all deserve

Indominus REX REX REX
Track Name: Origin of the Species
Your world was the same.
And then the changes came.
You fell and stumbled to the bottom of the foo chain.

Alone and depressed.
Convinced you are oppressed.
But time and time again its just the way that fate falls.

On the origin of the species.
Not all of them survive.
Without changing and rearranging what it means to be alive.

You conquered with your greed.
Too many mouths to feed.
The weak became the strong and you were forced to move along.

You hide your motives now.
Afraid for all to view.
The fucked up fragile monster crying deep inside of you.

On the origin of the species.
Not all of them survive.
Without changing and rearranging what it means to be alive.

You know that rules were meant to be broken.
And maybe baby maybe you know I ain't joking.
But nothing is forever because forever dies.
Where one dream is grounded another can fly.
Privilege for some is oppression for all.
Sans a backbone you'll only stand so tall.
The pressure of progress crushing anything still.
Motionless is madness and madness can kill.
Time says yes to rest with the best.
Stomping old ideas with new to test.
Nothing stays stagnant in the ripples of life.
Cutting down barriers like flesh to a knife.

On the origin of the species.
Not all of them survive.
Without changing and rearranging what it means to be alive.
Track Name: Clever Girl
I've dedicated all my life to learning what you are.
But everything I thought I knew is just drowning in the tar.
And I just don't know what else I can do.

You are my clever girl.

We met up on that old dirt path and I looked you in the eye.
But you were there with your best friend and I just had to cry.
And now my heart lies bleeding on the ground.

You are my clever girl.
Track Name: Fuck Fuck Die Die Dinosaur
The sea ran red with their blood as they were fossilized in their own remains
Track Name: Flying Nightmare
A blinding flash of light set fire to the sky.
The morning star returns to cleanse the earth.
An ancient portal torn, dismember the unborn.
The swarm of demons fills the niiiight.
They run out from the dead, as satan calls to them.
Mission disrupt the status quoooahoooahooahh.
Carnivores and herbivores-
now both just dinosaurs-
tonight fight side by to save their souls.

Flying nightmare woooahhhwoooahhhh

Their fate's in jeopardy, this world's insanity.
With teeth and claws they meet the hellions head on.
This blood soaked battle field, these dinos will not yield.
Malignant spirits that infect their brains.

There comes a point in everyone's life where they have to make a choice between light an dark. On that fateful day, those dinosaurs chose life to sacrifice themselves to save our world. So next time you complain about the high price of gasoline, stop and think, in my darkest hour with my back up against the wall, am I as brave as those dinosaurs that came before me. Am I willing to fight my demons now so that later generations can avoid, so that later generations can avoid, so that later generations can avoid a NIGHTMARE.

Flying nightmare whoooahoooooahoooah
Track Name: An Artist's Rendition of a Bolide Impact
We stand hand and hand. Look towards the sky. We see the end and its coming tonight. It poisons the air. Shatters the sky. There's only one thing I know. Tonight we all die.

Fire fills the air.
The trees all turn to smoke.
The whole things coming down ahead we get the fucking joke.

There's no food left to eat.
We're freezing in our homes.
There's no help from god above we're dying all alone.

Whooahhhh mass extinction
Whooahhhh mass extinction

I can't see the sun.
The heats been gone for days.
The tv says that we're alright we're sheltered and afraid.

The oceans pass the tide.
The airs not quite the same.
And everything we've ever built is going up in flames.

Whooaahh mass extinction
Whoaahhh mass extinction
Track Name: Paradise Lost (Margaritaville)
Walking down a darkened alley in the night.
Your fear it comes in waves it grips so fucking tight.
You see some movement from the corner of your eye, you don't have time to scream before you feel the bite.

Cover your ears, open your eyes they're gonna eat you.
Try to run, grab your drinks, they're gonna eat you.
Swept away off your feet they're gonna eat you.
Hide away hear your screams they're gonna eat you.

The stench of hell is in the air.
Society crumbles in despair.
Time folds inward and outward with blood.
Rotting corpses, broken bones and shattered dreams.
Dilophosaurus screams.


Cover your ears, open your eyes they're gonna eat you.
Try to run, grab your drinks, they're gonna eat you.
Swept away off your feet they're gonna eat you.
Hide away hear your screams they're gonna eat you.

Coming for your face.
Coming for your soul.
You're gonna cry when death takes its soul.

Everybody's dead.

DEAD DEAD DEAD
Track Name: Salute the Tail
Stand and roar.
Salute the tail.
Its what they died for.
Salute the tail.
Safety in numbers.
Salute the tail.
Think for yourself we all fail.

Don't you get it the herd is what saved us.
Thinking as one remaining the same.
Lockstep together is the name of the game. Lockstep together is the name of the game.Stand and roar.
Salute the tail.
Its what they died for.
Salute the tail.
Safety in numbers.
Salute the tail.
Think for yourself we all fail.

Don't fall behind or run ahead.
Just fall in line and do as they said.
Don't help the weak don't help the old.
Just shut your fucking mouth and do as you're told.

Stand and roar.
Salute the tail.
Its what they died for.
Salute the tail.
Safety in numbers.
Salute the tail.
Think for yourself we all fail.

Our pack isn't perfect, you don't have a say.
Love it or leave it, you don't have to say.
You show respect, you show obedience,
turn a blind eye to the way they are treating us.

Stand and roar.
Salute the tail.
Its what they died for.
Salute the tail.
Safety in numbers.
Salute the tail.
Think for yourself we all fail.
Track Name: Metal Pteradactyl (Commander in Grief)
You know they will never settle woaaah woaahhh metal Pteradactyl.

They will never stop until all is gone until all is greif

Hail to the fucking chief

You're not on the np fly list you're on the yes due list.

A constant state of war oh do they soar high above the land and no one understands our species breeds obstruction encourages destruction followed by construction its the money off the dead

Whooaah whooaah it's the money off the dead

You've made a poor decision
You were born in the wrong country
Part of a different way of life
And I hate to tell you
It's a life no one values
So hunkerdown and buckle up
You're about to get fucked about to get fucked about fuuuuuuucked

Death from above die die die everybody die get down tonight

Their talons reaching high
They're tearing up the sky
You live your life in fear
Because you can't go home

The graves are stacking up and every town it passes through becomes a crematorium

You know they'll never settle whoaaah whoaaah metal Pteradactyl until all is gone until all is greif Hail to the fucking chief

And you know how this story ends
With the shattered skulls of kids
A charred and catered earth thanks to a metal carnivore
I wish we had some warning but no one thought to tell us of the monster in the sky

Now eventually you do plan to have dinosayr songs on your dinosaur album right?

Bring it on hoooome

A constant state of war and ooh does it soar high above the land and no one understands our species breeds obstruction encourages destruction followed by construction its the money off the dead Whooaah whoaaah it's the money off the dead whoooooah whooooooah it's the money of the D E A D
Track Name: Volcano Suicide
I think about everything I'd done
I think about what we've become
Fossils, of our former selves
Killing our planet and we're dead already
Decisions made for us and we're dead already
Lava fills our heart and we're dead already

Volcano Suicide
Geology cyanide
The crust of life is life's release

Volcano Suicide
Geology Cyanide
Mortal damnation there's no peace

I think about where we were
I think about me and her
Mother earth and what you've done
Pumped her full of poison and she's dead already
Her bones are breaking and she's dead already
Her skin bleeds magma and she's dead already
Her joints are fusing and she's dead already
She's about to blow and we're dead already

Volcano Suicide
Geology Cyanide
The crust of life is life's release

Volcano Suicide
Geology Cyanide
Mortal damnation there's no peace

Burn baby burn baby burn baby burn

Volcano Suicide

Get the fuck out
You hear the battle cry
Get the fuck out
Get the fuck out
They different than you or I
Get the fuck out
Get the fuck out
You want to hide inside
Get the fuck out
Get the fuck out
The white shelled world you're used to

In a world that's changing everyday
fight side by side or get out of the way
And every creature great and small
Won't have to suffer from the madness of you all
And if you're to scared to evolve
We stand united as we watch you fall

Get the fuck out
Get the fuck out
You wave a wave of fear
Get the fuck out
Get the fuck out
Claiming that the end is near
Get the fuck out
Get the fuck out
Your fragile walls are caving in
Get the fuck out
Get the fuck out
The fallacy you all believe in

In a world that's changing everyday
fight side by side or get out of the way
And every creature great and small
Won't have to suffer through the madness of you all
And if you're to scared to evolve
We stand together as we watch you fall

Get the fuck out
Get the fuck out
If you don't want to join us
Get the fuck out
Get the fuck out
Its time to return to the dust
Get the fuck out
Get the fuck out
Despite your anger bouts and fits
Get the fuck out
Get the fuck out
There's no difference when the rock hits

In a world that's changing everyday
fight side by side or get out of the way
And every creature great and small
Won't have to suffer through the madness from you all
And if you're to scared to evolve
We stand united as we watch you fall
Track Name: Therapod Therapy
The world's a horrifying place and just don't have what it takes to not be eaten killed or raped by all the creatures out to get me.
Everyday we have to fight, tooth and claws with nails and bites
I just need something in my life to pass the time until I die.

Theropod Therapy
Everybody is trying to eat me
Theropod Therapy
Everybody is coming after me

I can live the life I want going out on daily hunts
killing other smaller species to survive.
And all the problems that I face life is awful but until it sinks its teeth in me I need some god damn therapy.
