Fetal Pig Des Moines, Iowa

After several line-up changes, the band released a self titled EP in 1995, before disbanding. In July 2010, Fetal Pig returned with a new line-up consisting of core members, Dan & Jeff with Chuck Hoffman taking over on bass. ... more

Track Name: Inside the Pyramid
they gave me an example
just a sliver of a sample
something for me to go on
something to believe
a simple explanation
a quick manipulation
that was how it started
that's how they got me

i've stopped understanding
it feels so, so undermining
i don't know what they want from
what do they want from
they want from me

i cannot breathe
i cannot breathe
inside the pyramid

i had my own expectations
once upon a time
that every step i take
wouldn't be a step behind
they laid out our limitations
and we're supposed to obey them
to step out on our own
would be to betray them

codependent, not independent
codependent, not independent
codependent inside the pyramid

there's no room to grow
there's only room for one at the top
there's no room to grow
there's only room for one at the top
Track Name: Concerns
i've got concerns
look away, look away
no one's listening
to what we say
their eyes are on us all
they know our every move
we created the technology
that they abuse
aren't you getting worried
even in the least
we're all lined up now
to be part of the feast

they've got our information
they're working on a plan
to make us all
dependent on them
no more free thinking
no more free enterprise
they fill our heads with threats
and bully us with lies

i've got concerns
that if we all turn away, turn away
we won't have anyone
but ourselves to blame
i've got concerns
i'm not joking
about the state of affairs
yet to be broken
aren't you getting worried
even in the least
we've all lined up now
to be part of the feast
Track Name: Identity Crisis
"leave me alone" i'm screaming
can't you see i'm dreaming
living a lie, the truth is dying
peace and love there's no use trying

gripping the truth has left you scarred
purity of your soul has been marred

believing the worst, hoping for the best
a fucking waste of time, it's time to leave the nest
believing the worst, hoping for the best
a fucking waste of time, it's time to leave the nest

you must learn responsibility
to destroy your creativity

your identity has become a number
forget your name, learn your number
your identity has become a number
forget your name, learn your number

move like a robot, move like a rerun
forget about the past, forget about fun
yesterday is beginning to look like today
time has passed you by and now you are gray

ride the subway like sheep the slaughterhouse
used to be a lion but now you are a mouse

the light in your eyes is gone
you don't even know what's going on
the light in your eyes is gone
you don't even know what's going on

your identity has become a number
forget your name, learn your number
your identity has become a number
forget your name, learn your number
Track Name: Meaningless
i have seen the distinct light of pretentious
breathed the stale stench of repetitious
created impossible barriers
amended my personal constitutions
and i still couldn't tell you what i've found
no i still couldn't tell you what i've found

too many minutes of my life have been wasted
by people like you who have demonstrated
time stands still when you have no watch
and i haven't the time to fuck around no

making something big from something small
you were too frail to take that fall
feeling like you've lost it all
you've lost nothing at all

something bad that was once so great
something turned a love into a hate
you pout and whine your days away
a part of your life has been erased
Track Name: Power Slide
tight rein harness ride
full on skull tide
pull back bite down
bend down turn around

it can be a power slide
for the one on the inside

you've given up broken down
turned around and came around
split second knee jerk
spastic twitch blood perk

whipped hard beat red
fall limp half dead
split second knee jerk
Track Name: In Your Head
there will come a time when all your dreams disappear
and your life will seem to serve no purpose
all your hopes will be washed away
someday soon, perhaps today

you see yourself go through the motions
someone else is pulling your strings
like worthless junk floating in a ocean
watch your master make you dance and sing

the sun will not shine, no winds will blow
nothing seems to work anymore
the sun will not shine, no winds will blow
nothing seems to work anymore

gone like waste
filth feeling sick
trapped, walls surround me
lost, no one's found me
hell i made for myself
trapped, walls surround me
lost, no one's found me
god laughs at me

hell
trapped
lost
god
Track Name: New Apostles
three men drove a truck in the night
each of them toting a staff
devising a plan of deviant suppression
urgent
resurgent
mental detergent

flashing red lights of the brain police
patrol cars spewing molten thoughts
a cargo
clashing
configurations

spitting forth through a megaphone:
YOU CAN'T CONTROL THIS
WE CONTROL YOU
WE ARE THE NEW APOSTLES

brown church
red school
clean minds

plus conformity
minus conscience
equals
happy healthy content human sheep
