This EP is based upon the story of 'Battlecat'. A half human/half cat warrior of the worlds who is set in war against creatures from other galaxies.

The opening track 'Battlecat' starts as a street scene where Battlecat comes to blows with a group of strays who have stolen a female cat from its elderly owner. The Battle starts on the sidewalk and is taken to the skies. Who will win?

The Second track is 'Stutter' - an instrumental track that deals with the universe's imbalance pending creatures from outer space's imminent attack.

The Third track, 'Lighter', is a track very much dealing with these alien creatures fighting humans on their own territories. "So close the planets feel afraid, martians and grown men fight again."

The Fourth and final track of the EP is 'Space'. Battlecat and a feline are stuck in the 'Battleship' pondering the universe's future/safety. Battlecat does his best to put her mind at rest.
