Silent Screams

We trash the Earth's resources
Chop down too many trees
Blast off the tops of mountains
Pollute the sky and seas

We gotta heal this planet brothers
Before we deserve the others
We gotta heal this planet's scars
Before we deserve the stars

There's too many people taking
What they really don't need
Spoiled on cheese and ice cream
They don't want to be weaned

Or hear the silent screams
Of the animal factories

We fly up in the sky
Look down upon the lie
A million dungeon pastures
Where 4 legged vegetarians
get ready to die

We gotta stop the senseless slaughter
Clean up the land and waters
Stop enslaving - stop the raping
Of defenseless gentle creatures

There's too many people hanging
Onto barbarian ways
Survival skills are good but they don't justify
Eating animals for food every day

Can't you hear the screams
From the animal factories?

On the first page of the Bible
The Lord told us what we should eat
Of the trees and herbs and fruit thereof
And in Heaven plant foods will be our meat

"The wolf will live with the lamb,
and the leopard lie down with the goat;
and the calf and the young lion together;
will be led by a little child

And the cow will feed with the bear;
their young will lie down together:
and the lion will eat straw like the ox."
Yeah the lion will be vegetarian

"The infant will play by the cobra hole,
and the young child put his hand
on the snake nest.

They will not harm or destroy - in all HIS
holy mountain: for the earth will be full
of the knowledge of the LORD,
as the waters cover the ocean."

*We gotta heal this planet brothers
Before we deserve any others
We gotta heal this planet's scars
Before we deserve the stars

We gotta stop the senseless slaughter
Clean up the land and the waters
Stop enslaving and stop the raping
Of our peaceful fellow earthlings
