"You have one unread message."
(You want me to silence? Let me show you. Let me write it down for you.)
Thirty little rabbits killed for one single coat,
not to mention dead animals passing daily down your throat.
The fifth commandement says: "Thou shalt not kill."
And still you get a thrill from the suffering? That's ill!
If we're having carcasses for our meals,
our bodies become graveyards - it can't be concealed.
The words in this song are meant to make you start thinking.
At this very moment someone's bleeding and screaming:
No to violence.
Non a violence.
Nein zur gewalt.
Bouriyoku wo kiyohi suru.
No a la violencia.
We are executing the innocent and helpless.
Fear transmits in nature, wars and nervousnes.
Eight kilos of wheat equals one kilo of meat.
Eight times more food would stay for people to eat.
Grains are fed to animals to build up their fat,
while three quarters of the world fights for food like rats.
If we distribute all this food accordingly and fast
we could end all starvation, geldofs could finally rest.
And humane killing, please, someone explain:
What kind of a murder is humane?
Silent bullets in the heads - that's a death full of pain.
Just to satisfy your tongues? No excuse, no gain!
Teachings in the holy Bible we should all follow,
where compassion is explained -- Bible isn't hollow.
Hello? In Genesis, first page, God is talking to us
about foodstuffs - meat isn't mentioned. Why don't we trust?
Ignorance is bliss, we prefer to stay blind:
"Soul doesn't exist. I don't see it, I don't mind."
Living entety's not a body, chemical substance
or something you can even see, for instance:
Street shops, restaurants, smelly places,
kitchen crematories, slaughterhouses, mortuaries.
If you are a consumer, you're part of that chain.
To blame and claim the game's not the same is insane.
Enough of blood and mass misguidance -
silence about violence.
"What goes around comes around."
We could be found in a bloody compound.
Actions bring reactions - that's the law of nature.
If we're cause for a murder, we'll meet a bad future.
You can act and think that goodness is useless,
but if death's the end then life is meaningless.
Am I hurting someone? I'm just using my rights.
I'm shooting verbal bullets - bang-bang when I fight.
I dare to shout loudly and I apologize.
Those words are for the ignorant who need some advice.
No to violence.
Our special prayers go especially for all the poor cows.
Please, spare them from the slaughterhouse.
And if you don't agree with the words in this song,
we'll pray for you too, 'cause violence is wrong!
