"Amoeba" as written by and Roger Agnew....
We are the scientists in the lab
Looking through a microscope
Those little glass slides they never lie
How can this small mind cope?

I've never seen anything like it before
This amoeba's got a mind of it's own
But don't turn your back you stupid science world
This is reaching for the telephone

A one celled creature a one celled thing
It hardly knows it's alive
You're better off dead if you only knew
Your growing life is taking a dive

I've never seen anything like it before
This amoeba's got a mind of it's own
But don't turn your back you stupid science world
This is reaching for the telephone

    General CommentThis is punk rock at it's finest. It's possibly my favorite punk song from my favorite punk album. Actually, it's just one of my favorite songs EVER. Top 10, I would say. You've got a massive chorus, verses about a freakin amoeba (almost nothing), and two - that's right - TWO awesome guitar solos. I go crazy when I listen to this song!

    General CommentAre you sure? I think you're wrong. It sounds like there's an added count in between you and science....and I'm pretty sure it sounds like the word stupid. so...you should check that out.

    General CommentI think this song is about a lot more than just an amoeba. It's an allegory. Think of the scientists as being elitist conformists and listen to it again.

    General CommentPunkpirate has to be right. I would be very suprised if it werent an allegory. Think about the amoeba as us... and the scientists, well conformists like punkpirate said. If that isnt the exact idea they were going for, it shouldnt be far off.

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs i've heard live, mostly because the way the chanting of Amoeba is incorporated throughout the song. Everyone has they fists in the air shouting "Amoeba! Amoeba!"
