You think it's alright to destroy God's creation?
They don't have a voice, so who cares how we're treating them here?
If you read His word you should know that He blessed them
I know your defense is to say "God said dominate them"

Do you think "dominate" means to kill just for sport?
Wear the fur from their backs
Train them for circus acts
Take our pets to be gassed once their "cute" age is passed

Don't you see in their eyes how they trust us?
But man in his sin turns that trust into horrible pain
When God says to man "Give account of your life's work,”
we must be prepared to reply "Your creation I loved"

Locked behind steel cage
Forced to take drugs we've made
Cut them up just to show
what we already know

Before they die...
who will hear them cry?

    General Commentthis song is all about their beliefs on cruelty to animals. mtv banned the video for this song because of the grusome and disturbing images portrayed when the animals are being tested upon

    General CommentI've read about many MTV bans. Pretty funny, but understandable.

    First song I heard by the band. I like it. Someone in my English class said the song was boring compared to their others, but I still like it.
