"Baboon" as written by and Shook Schindel....
Hey kids! I don't think you're ready for this
Systematic rebirth
This is anything you want
Step right up, make your move
This is the primitive sound of the hunt
I've programmed this station to sit by and watch you bleed
Dead noise has been broadcast in our heads far too long
And it ends with the taste of your blood
It ends with the sound of your scream

I don't know the faces but I know the names
And I watch the shadows take shape
This time there is no prison to keep you alive and awake
This time there is no curtain to draw
Your dreams from physical reaction

Step right up, make your move
This is anything you want
Step right up, make your move
This is anything you want

The plug has been pulled from the wall
The battery is dead
Are you still afraid?

I don't know the faces but I know the names
And I watch the shadows take shape
This time there is no prison to keep you alive and awake
This time there is no curtain to draw
Your dreams from physical

Complications in our shadows
Lost in traveling the setting sun
Conversations behind closed doors
Caught in our heads to hear once more

    General Commentbrilliant tune! for me it means taking a stand against whatever stands in your way and not running scared from anything even pure evil.

    General CommentThis is an awesome song, no doubt, but I was wondering does anyone know what the music is playing in the background at the end when the guy is talking?

    IMO, this song is partly about television and mass media's long standing control over our youth. This is a call to take control of our lives and regain our world.

    General CommentIm pretty sure the song in the background is "Push" by Matchbox 20. Better late than never.
