<p><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>This was release on our s/t cd in 2007.It was originally titled "astroturf", but my guitar player, John said the bass line was crazy...like a soundtrack of a bull in a china shop...I thought it was funny as hell, and it stuck.</strong></span></p>
<p><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>This song was written while I was working an office job in a warehouse, normally I work in the warehouse, which I was trying to get away from at the time...and then I was dealing with a whole other slew of bullshit...that's where the first line comes from: the other side of the grass aint greener, it's astroturf.</strong></span></p>
<p><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>This song basically deals with alpha male bullshit, corporate america, and the underlying fighting that goes with trying to climb the corporate ladder, so to speak.It was also inspired loosely on the book High Rise, by J.G Ballard, in which a high rise has it's own society, school, supermarket, etc.There are even classes in the infrastructure...the rich </strong></span><strong><span style="font-size: small;">having the most luxurious apartments on the upper floors, poor are on the bottom...and people start warring against eachother.</span></strong></p>


<p><span style="font-size: small;">The other side of the grass, aint greener...</span></p>
<p><span style="font-size: small;">It's astroturf.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-size: small;">A sense of urgency, challenge the alpha,</span></p>
<p><span style="font-size: small;">The dog within craves the pack.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-size: small;">False smile, drenched in, deceit.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-size: small;">Upscale buildings, a front to warfare.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-size: small;">Human nature at lowest, primordial state,</span></p>
<p><span style="font-size: small;">When backs are turned, throats are cut.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-size: small;">Clown soul, power trip,</span></p>
<p><span style="font-size: small;">Soundtrack of a Bull in a China Shop.<br /></span></p>
