"Rats!Rats!Rats!" as written by and Chino/carpenter Moreno....
Decide, decide
Is this safe to say?
Decide
Is that your style?
Is this decided?
Decide
Is this it?
Is this decided?
Decide
Really?
Fine

You walked in here
Was it like a dream?
You got in here
Was it like it seemed?

I won't say nothing, nothing
Not a fucking thing
Wish you would've said something, something
Something

Decide, decide
Is this safe to say?
Decide
Is that your style?
Is this decided?
Decide
Is this it?
Is this just fine?
Decide
Just fine
Everything is fine
Everything's just fine
Everything is fine
Everything's fine

You walked in here
Was it like a dream?
You got in here
Was it like it seemed?

I won't say nothing, nothing
Not a fucking thing
I just wanna say something, something
Something
And I wish one thing, one thing
Just one fucking thing
I heard her say something
Something, something

Decide, decide
Is this safe to say?
Decide
Is that your style?
Is this decided?
Decide
Is this it?
Is this just fine?
Everything's fine
Everything is fine
Everything just fine
Everything is fine

    General Comment"This was one of Stephen's songs. There's a lot of aggression here. He spent whole weeks working on individual sections of this because the timing is really intricate. The song title is from a story I was reading about this old actress called Frances Farmer who went crazy. It was only afterwards that I realised Nirvana had also written a song about her."

    General CommentI love his voice on this one. It's a bit higher and it flows so well compared to all the other screams on this cd. Intense lyrics. Love it.

    General Commenthis voice is def gettin old..the screams sounds real dry and horse, like he getttin over larenjitis, except every scream on the record is like this.but in a way i think it adds flavor to their sound for some reason and makes it sound cool. dont know why, just does.

    General Comment=/ I always use relationship scenarios with songs... Decide if you like him ( your former guy) or me better. Don't be mixed up between the 2 of us!!! Decide who you want to be with! Only one of us! DOOO IITTT! OR it could be this scene: Someone shows their "true" self to someone. Was it everything they expected ( dreamed of). Decide if you want to accept me as I am or scamper off like those other fake frauds. That's just my interpretaton...

    General CommentThis song is cool. Very aggressive. Eh, I believe it's about getting fed up with someone's bullshit and their inability to see something.. sort of like what was mentioned in the comment above mine. But I suppose you could use it to fit other situations.

    General CommentThats a good interpretation, Lateralus518. By the way some of the lyrics are wrong. Hes actually saying "This Sun" at the beginning. At least thats what the booklet says, as well as azlyrics.com.

    The very last scream in the song is fuckin awesome. Amazing album. Im seeing them live in 2 days. so excited.

    General CommentMaybe if Steven spent ages writing little bits of the song the lyrics are about him? Chino getting annoyed?
