When humanity
Creates a hierarchy
Placing blowholes
Above anenomes
When sovereign nations
Have made it policy
Slaughter everything
That goes with wasabi

Say a prayer for the earth as you make a wish
Who will shed one tear for the tuna fish?
Or the thousand other species on the ocean floor
Does a spot on prime time TV land
Justify the ruination of a fisherman?
That could've been me, cries the albacore

With the carnage
Sealed hermetically
In the killing fields
Of the mechanery
It's a dolphin safe atrocity

Metal gafs are flying
As the innocent keep dying
But are we only crying
For God's creatures not worth frying?

    General CommentThis song is about how people only want to save the cute animals (like dolphins) but no one gives a fcuk
    about ugly ones (like Albacores which are tuna that are the source of canned Tuna). I wonder if the Vandals are Vegans? This reminds me of NOFX's song
    "Clams Have Feelings To"

    General CommentI think it goes a bit deeper than that.

    I think it may also be referring to the coral reefs and shit with the line "Justify the ruination of a fisherman"

    just a thought

    General Commenti cant think of what
    "Does a spot on prime time TV land
    Justify the ruination of a fisherman?
    That could've been me, cries the albacore"
    means.
