"No Spill Blood" as written by and Danny Elfman....
(What is the law?)
(What is the law?)

Animals came from miles around
So tired of walking so close toe the ground
They needed a chance, that's what they said
Life is better walking on two legs
But they were in for a big surprise
'Cause they didn't know the law!

CHORUS
(What is the law)
No spill blood
What is the law
(No spill blood)

(Who makes the rules)
Someone else
Who makes the rules
(Someone else)

The rules are written in the stone
Break the rules and you get no bones
All you get is ridicule, laughter
And a trip to the house of pain!

CHORUS (in reverse order)

We walk on two legs not on four
To walk on four legs breaks the law
What happens when we break the law?
What happens when the rules aren't fair?
We all know here we go from there
To the house of pain!
To the house of pain!

(What is the law)
What is the law

(Who makes the rules)
Who makes the rules

We walk on two legs not on four
To the house of pain
To the house of pain
To the house of pain
To the house of pain
To the house of pain
(No spill blood)

    Song MeaningIt directly quotes The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells. That's what it's about.

    The book deals with a group of experimented on animals. The scientist wants them to be as human as possible and enforces this through laws (Walk on two legs, no spill blood). If the animals break the laws they are further experimented on (House of Pain). It's a great book.

    General CommentYou're all correct! (Except for the Animal Farm guy.)

    Elfman took the chant from viewing Island of Lost Souls... which is a movie adaptation of the book The Island of Dr. Moreau.

    (Interestingly enough, Devo's "Are we not men?" chant in "Jocko Homo" is also from Island of Lost Souls.)
