"Hyena" as written by Jason Swinscoe and Dominic Peter Smith....
Call me and tell me you care,
There's a country to flatten over there.
Don't bore me with the truth,
I live alone, don't you?

Write down the things I should say,
There ain't enough hours in the day,
Perfect my cold stare,
Tell your friends I did a dare.

But don't you understand?
The hunger makes the man.
With all that lies in front of us,
The world looks so ridiculous to me.

Laugh with me hyena.
Laugh with me hyena.
Laugh with me hyena.
Laugh with me now.

I love you, I love my black eye.
These knots I'll never untie.
They'll believe us in who we are,
There's history in a scar.

But don't you understand?
The hunger makes the man.
With all that lies in front of us,
The world looks so ridiculous to me.

Laugh with me hyena.
Laugh with me hyena.
Laugh with me hyena.
So laugh with me now.

Laugh with me now,
Laugh with me now,
Laugh with me now.

Laugh with me hyena.
Laugh with me hyena.
Laugh with me hyena.
So laugh with me now,
Laugh with me some then.

    Song MeaningWHAT a tune.

    With all that lies in front of us, the world looks so ridiculous to me!

    Hunger makes the man, aren't enough hours in the day. These are the things I think about. It's such a thought provoking tune, and a tune at that. I love the Hyena thing, I am reminded of The Lion King, I think a lot of people enjoy their LULZ on the interweb and thats where the Hyena thing comes from I reckon.

    Here in Western society so much lies in front of us, hunger makes the man, do a dare. We are truly domesticated, we never really earn our food and material posessions. So have a good LOL at it all, the way we live, all in the name of being civilised people. It's BORING. Not enough hours because people just wanna party, and thats our way of saying that the day has no adventure.

    Yeah, laugh at it all, best song I've seen in a while it really SAYS stuff, like...

    Glad I bought this album.

    My InterpretationTheres so much said in this song I even forgot the first couple of lines!

    Theres a country to flatten over there, we are bored and need to stretch the military legs to give ourselves something stimulating to do. Sad that the only master plan we have is to kill people in the name of ego and keeping the arms manufacturers rich etc. It's sport, not like football for us, it's their sport. The song is about how we need Sport to keep things interesting I think.
