Featuring the tracks "Man O' Warsaw", "No Lobster Lost", "Eaters Of Fish", and "Fangtooth Failures", the sound quality is much better than the original 1978 release. Professionally recorded, mastered and mixed at Dave Klein Studios, these tracks are a must for any Joy Division fan.

Track Name: Man O' Warsaw
Eel pike koi clown tuna fish go!

I was there in the fishtank
When the power went out
Swam around in a panic
But a fish cannot shout

I grew up in the glass walls
Felt aquarium safe
But now I wish I had freedom
Of the ocean's embrace

In the sea
In the sea
In the sea

Hung around in the coral
When all the bubbles had stopped
I got flushed down the toilet
When I floated on top

On top of the water
Of the now darkened tank
My fish life has ended
I'm in the sewage and stank

In the sea
In the sea
In the sea

I could still hear the flushing
As I swirled down the hole
I Shot through the piping
And out in the cold
In the cold of the ocean
I am dead in the sea
The fish see my carcass
And they will eat me

In the sea
In the sea
In the sea

Eel pike koi clown tuna fish
Track Name: No Lobster Lost
So long crawling here
Looking for a meal
Pop my head out of the sand
I've been searching round
This ocean floor forever
Snapping claw crustacean
Suddenly some bait appears
Cage closes freedom disappears

They'll eat ya
They'll eat ya
They'll eat ya

Through the aquarium walls
he saw the chef approaching
and knew his time was up.
In an instant he was lowered
into a pot of scalding hot water
and the lid was closed over him,
boiling him alive.
He shuddered crustaceously.
No lobster escapes from Red Lobster...
No lobster lost... No lobster lost...

You've been sitting in the lobster tank forever
Other lobsters stacked on you
Someone picks you for a lovely Sunday meal
All your nightmares coming true
They suck the meat right out your shell
Welcome to your lobster hell

They'll eat ya
They'll eat ya
They'll eat ya
Track Name: Eaters Of Fish
Hors d'oeuvres of fine caviar
Geflite fish in a jar
Made a promise at the buffet
To eat the sushi and the fillet

When you need seafood now
Don't want chicken or cow
And there's never a doubt
That you'll order the trout
Or a shrimp cocktail glass
With Chilean Sea Bass

Catching fish via prededation
Is the grizzly bear's dietary foundation
They're the sea bird's favorite dish
And even fish eat other fish!

Survival under the sea
Is "Eat them or eat me"
And you can't swim to hide
In ebbs and flows of the tide
Gutted, skinned, cooked, flambeed
In endless seafood parades

Can't resist temptation
Ahi tuna adoration
Smacking lips just thinking 'bout
Pan fried garlic lemon trout

The eaters of fish
Exist in every nation
The eaters of fish
Including mollusks and crustaceans
The eaters of fish
Like battered cod and salty french fries
No reluctance to partake
To dip in tartar sauce and bake
Pescatarian elation
For fish taco salivation!
Track Name: Fangtooth Failures
Don't think that's a dinosaur
That's a carcass of a fangtooth eel
Hurricane took it from the ocean floor
Left it dying on a Texas shore

From the family of Op-hich-thi-dae
Tusky eel is its common name
Blown through the violent storm
Dead on the sand in its final form

He no longer denies
That's a carcass of a fangtooth eel
It's now all covered with flies
The rotted carcass of a fangtooth eel
Climate changes made the hurricanes
Turning fishes into airplanes
News story with a monster hook
Click and bait we take a look
What a sad fatality
Desperate gaspings of the fangtooth eel
Some other fish could see
Mother Nature is the real deal

He no longer denies
That's a carcass of a fangtooth eel
Now now all covered with flies
The rotted carcass of a fangtooth eel
Now that the hurricanes past
People will forget about the tusky eel
Environment is only getting worse
There's sure to be much more upheaval

No no its not the last
Rotted carcass of a fangtooth eel
No no its days are past
The rotted carcass of a fangtooth eel
The rotted carcass of a fangtooth eel
