"The Uncomplete Guide To Caring For Your Rat Babies, Vol #2", released April 2012 for the 2012 Rat Babies tour with VA band "Akris", is the second in a series of releases that serve as an archive of demos and history of where Rat Babies was year to year. This second volume collects six demo recordings (one mic recordings of practice and jam sessions) from 2011-2012. On these recordings you may hear random appearances from friends who happen to stop by that day, conversations between songs, mistakes and sometimes even background noises from bands practicing in the room next door to us. We always extend an open invitation for anyone to stop by at anytime, but we know that not everyone lives close enough to Athens GA to make this plausible so we give you these recordings which put you in the practice space with us. Listen with head phone and you might even smell the smoke and feel the buzz like you're really there with us.

Track Listing:
1. Beautiful
2. Trunk
3. Smokers Cough
4. Somewhere Out There I Die
5. Empty Parking Lot
6. Thunder Swamp

Track Name: Trunk
LYRICS: where i'm going i don't care, the tire tracks won't lead home, my teeth are broke, my bones bruised, it feels too late for me and you, i hold my breath til i'm blue, i don't know what else to do, i'm dieing cause i'm out of air, need breather holes and hope to care, locked alone in this room, i'm a stranger to myself, tire wrench jack and spare, hibernating breathing fumes, where i'm going i don't care, the tire tracks won't lead home, my teeth are broke, my bones bruised, it feels too late for me and you.
Track Name: Smoker's Cough
LYRICS: over the edge, it changes me, i see stars and i see me, let's do it again, let's get lost, blind leads blind, you follow i lead, i'm just pretend, but i write the book, you're not real to me cause all i see is me, let's do it again, let's get lost, blind leads blind, you follow i lead.
Track Name: Somewhere Out There I Die
LYRICS: i'm alone and i want to wander with someone wondering where to go, maybe on the way i'll find her on the road out there somewhere, the sun peeks over the horizon, i'm so tired but i'm still driving, want to know and explore the wide open road and see how far it really goes, so throw some more wood onto the fire of the flicker flames that i see in your eyes, there's nothing left for us to do, can of food and leftovers on the stove, somewhere out there i die, i'm alone so i have to wonder where to wander next, is it here or far, maybe on the way i'll find out, cause somewhere out there I die.
Track Name: Empty Parking Lot
LYRICS: from this parking spot an empty parking lot feels just like my heart, feels just like my heart, the moon it shines so bright with that skeletal smile, but i'm so dark and cold in this dead of night, from this parking spot an empty parking lot feels just like my heart, feels just like my heart, i need a sweeper truck to make it's way through me cause i'm oil spotted and i still see her trash float by, from this parking spot an empty parking lot feels just like my heart, feels just like my heart, the missing letters from that old florescent sign's not spelling l-o-v-e down, down to me, from this parking spot an empty parking lot feels just like my heart, feels just like my heart.
Track Name: Thunder Swamp
LYRICS: i think i'm sinking down, will i drown in this mire, do you feel the thunder coursing thru this place, it's getting so dark out here, i think we've gone and lost our way, creatures scurry past me but fear is not an option, i'm stuck here in this swamp, but i don't care to get out cause i can feel the thunder coursing thru my veins.
