"Rats" as written by and Gaster/maines/sult/fallon....
Rats over the dishes
Rats over the dishes
Please tell me what the ratties say
Please tell me what the ratties say
Rats over the dishes

And God was certainly a genius
To expose this human weakness

Rats over the dishes
Please tell me what the ratties say

And the doorway is a cutaway of flesh and bone
Lay me down upon a bed of roses

And to think that this was once my home
But now some sick bastard's pleasure dome
They say to build a better man trap
Will lead the rats to beat a path to your door

Build a better man trap
And the rats will beat a path to your door

    General CommentI agree with you guys. I love Clutch. No-one can rock quite like them.
    They live right down the road from me a few miles.

    General CommentNot a SINGLE comment regarding the only lyricist who possible rivals James Keenan. For you kids who come in here this song is about Neils first apartment and all the cockroaches that ran rampant through said apartment. He changed it to rats for syllabic reasons.

    General CommentYes, I agree. Neil hands-down, is one of the most creative lyric writers in music. And the band has stayed true for their 11+ year career.

    General CommentLike Tool, Clutrches music has remained basically un-changed, and it's best left that way. Very talented musicians, especially guitarist Tim Sult, he's a big inspiration for me. They get no where near the credit they deserve, my friend saw them live with Sevendust a few years ago, he never heard of Clutch but came back saying they are the best band ever.
