i tell you about the animals- how they suffer how they die, you try to hide guilty doubt- from me with an appeasing smile, you never want responsibility- for this murderous cruelty, the wasteful piles of blood-soaked bodies - you won't let your conscience see. ask yourself what makes you want this- torn ripped flesh so desperately, are you worthy of having this suffering- brought about to fuel your greed??? not satisfied with killing animals- you're killing millions of people as well, as the numbers increase of those dying- in your man made 3rd world hell. millions dying all the time- locked in your abbatoir of greed, whilst you destroy them + yourself- by taking much more than you need, there is no justice in this death- no illusion i'll let you hide behind, the tradition you use to hide animal murder- is nothing but a thin disguise.

    General CommentI love how this song builds and just bursts with energy at the end, and the lyrics are great.

    My favorite animal rights song next to Flux of Pink Indian's "Sick Butchers".

    General CommentIt's obvious what this song is about, but what is ironic is that Nick Blinko did not care too much for this sort of thing -- he wasn't even a vegetarian. To my knowledge it was the guitarist that was concerned about animal rights and so forth. Wonderful song in any case.

    General CommentI think the key to understanding this song is the line "taking much more than you need". I don't think they are preaching vegetarianism, because it is kind of ridiculous to try to convince people that it is immoral to consume flesh since animals do it all the time and we had to for survival in many places and many time periods. I think they are against things like killing animals for sport or to use their bodies as decor. Or to just eat them when you don't need to to fill yourself fat. Being a vegetarian in a middle-class society is great because you are preserving the planet and not supporting some of the abuse of domesticating animals. But there are many scenarios in poorer countries where you have to eat animals or you die yourself.

    But still, fuck taxidermy.
