"Extinction Burst" as written by and Les Claypool Jay Lane....
With a head full of pancakes
A gut full of rot
He shoots from the hip
For one final

Extinction burst
Extinction burst
Extinction burst
Extinction burst

He ran like a bastard
And jumped like an ape
He left the crowd cheering
His one final

Extinction burst
Extinction burst
Extinction burst
Extinction burst

Extinction burst
Extinction burst
Extinction burst
Extinction burst

Randy's thrown fastballs
Like man's never known
Kobayashi ate hotdogs
To take the throne
The avocado is shedding it's pit
Beef on a pancake
Your dream don't mean shit

Extinction burst
Extinction burst
Extinction burst
Extinction burst

Today is going to be the greatest day of your life
Today is going to be the day you get up on your heels and fight
In the face of all that you disdain you will burn so bright
Extinction burst

    General CommentTo me, it seems as though Les is taking a very sardonic stance on this song...I could be wrong though. Perhaps he is saying that we put too much stock and money into pro athletes and that it will be the death of us, hence, "Extinction Burst"?

    General CommentSeems like its about taking a last stand, or an "extinction burst". Like a shining moment in the face of your enemies or your problems (in the face of all you disdain you will burn so bright) where you "get up on your heels and fight" back.

    Love the references to pitcher Randy Johnson (he does throw a hard fastball) and Takeru Kobayashi the former hot dog eating champion (or reigning according to Kobayashi himself lol)
