"I started writing the lyrics for ‘Filthy Apes and Lions’ with only the title in mind. I took it from a line of one of my other songs. From there, the rest came together using a surrealistic automatic writing exercise, with the goal of bringing out subconscious ideas. Without originally having a concept in mind, one seemed to reveal itself after the fact. To me, it painted some sort of apocalyptic picture, in either a zoo or the jungle."
