In 2006 From Chimpan-A to Chimpan-Z recorded their debut album Designs? with engineer S.J. Kardash (of Saskatoons Junior Pantherz and The Blood Lines) and secured national distribution through Scratch Records.

"The ethereal and chilling instrumentals are in a class of their own, creating the sort of atmosphere that makes the hair on your arms stand up."

Lyrics

Berlin

Written By: from Chimpan-A to Chimpan-Z

Commence sirens and so it begins, the sound still so faint, just listen closely. You're unaware and unprepared for what daylight will bring your unsettled sleep. And the earth will shake between us baby, divide us where we stand. So we can make plans, dance on the faultlines, hip sways & unfazed.

Beacon marks it for... "Go check the arsenal." Summons friendly reinforcements. "We can't go in unarmed..." Underwater clause. "Go check the arsenal." So we can win this moment." We can't go in unarmed." For what it's worth we'll go. Sit back, enjoy the show.

This city's all circuitry, there is no difference to be made between what we are and what we make. Sky of patterned airplanes bring death from above. This destruction was a long time coming but did we really expect it so soon? This destruction was a long time coming but we won't stand here hopeless and unarmed.

We'll save them all. Fight for the cause.

(outro) Who would have known we'd be the ones to save the day. Lead your hearts to love's relief.

Yeaargggghhhhhhhhhhhh!!!
Louder!
Pilot: "May I have your attention please, this is your pilot speaking. Please remove your seatbelts. There is no use for seatbelts. Do what I say."
Co-pilot: "Do what he says!"
Pilot: I am riding this airplane of pain."
Mother: "You're going through some changes, you're having some wet dreams, you're only fourteen."
Steward: "Hello Doggy, how are you? I've got a special treat. Cherry vase dipped in ichor, strawberry flavoured blackened liquor."
Pilot: "Do what I say I repeat!"
Co-pilot: "Do what he says."
Passengers: "Bar Mitzvah! Bar Mitzvah! It's your birthday! You're a man now! You're a man now!"

The rain falls. We crash into the waves. This glorious night explodes into glass.
The way we were... well we can't avoid this crash. We watch the stars. A gentle dance that steals your breath. A thief in the night. We blame it all on but we can't wait for morning so we send a call for light.

A long way down.
The way we were well we can't. It's a long way down.
