Can you imagine being in a factory farm with nobody to call for help
Nobody to come dress your wounds no matter how much you yelp?
Can you imagine being in a slaughterhouse
Knowing you are going to die
Nobody to come save you
No matter how much you cry?

Humans have emergency phones, and that is great
But where the fuck are the emergency phones for the animals?
Humans have emergency phones, and that is wonderful
But where the fuck are the emergency phones for the animals?

Can you imagine being in a lab
With people experimenting on you
Getting tortured every day, and there's nothing that you can do?
Can you imagine bein' forced to work
Never given a choice
Wanting desperately to be free, but no one listens to your voice?

Humans have emergency phones, and that is great
But where the fuck are the emergency phones
For all of the animals?
Humans have emergency phones, and that is wonderful
But where the fuck are the emergency phones for the animals?

Many of us take it for granted that if we were ever to bleed
We could call someone and get the help we need
We wouldn't even have to beg or plead
Many animals are not as lucky as we—they are considered pieces of property
They don't get to rest under a shady tree
They live lives full of misery
They don't get to gaze at the stars
No listening to people play guitars
No cruising around in fancy cars
They spend their lives behind bars
Animals do not exist for humans to use
Animals do not exist for us to abuse
Eat veggie burgers at your barbecues
No feather pillows when ya take a snooze
Try being vegan—you've got nothing to lose
Choose compassion
Choose compassion
Choose compassion
