Special thanks to MEDIA and all our extras.

I am a rat on the starboard side, gnawing on the flesh of a dead man’s hide, oh you’ve got to... you’ve got to... you’ve got to... you’ve got to take what they give to you

A scavenger on a ship adrift, anchored in an ocean drowned in blinding mist. Waves they buffet, oh fuck, they crush it, the timbers of this vessel become...

The teeth of the sea, oh the teeth of the sea
You must –

Attack! Send it down to the ocean floor. We must attack...and then attack some more
Attack! Hello so we have returned to settle the score

A skulking rat on a city street, relishing the odour of the rotting meat. Hearts be stopping. Your lives are rotting.


You’re filthy! You’re feral! Repugnant society! I thrive on the throwaways of your ideology. I’ll plague you like a cancer

You must –


And when your bones, they are all bare
And all that’s left are the scraps of your hair
Your dim sockets look brighter than life
Oh tell someone who cares
