Bloody hands on bloody corpses Just to fulfil your taste The taste of death that satisfies Not thinking about what you eat Controlling life of other animals is not human’s privilege So stop the killing Change your life Don’t take life that you don’t need Inside your hearts you know that meat is murder It’s not enough to make a real change Think for yourself, there is a better way Why silence the ones who have no voice? They are already silenced We all behave so supreme This goddamn human greed Open eyes will set you free It’s not to late to make the change So stop the killing Change your life Don’t take life that you don’t need Release the animals right now It’s time for some action There’s no need for hypocrisy There is a better way Together we’ll make a change
Can you hear her calling? Calling out Trapped inside a prison cell of fear Can you hear the calling? I'm calling now What's left of her won't see another day And now her time has come She won't be forced to take it anymore Now she's gone, Washed away We all see it. We all hear it. We just don't seem to care. This girl was killed by you, you know

And we'll continue to burn down your churches Slice down everything until we got what we really want It's our right to believe in nothing But not all decisions are made on purpose Not everything is We never really wanted some It's not personal but we'll slice down everything I guess We never really wanted some It's our right to believe in nothing
I've seen the news the night before This crime spreads internationally These days there's so much that we have And yet we consciously proceed To steal the paycheck of the people From the far side of the globe Infected and exploited Underprivileged, just poor But how I wish this was a dream It's harsh reality Please wake me up from this reality Somebody wake me up from all these lucid dreams But when the debts has lifted from fresh ruins, "globalisation" hits Another blow on a tortured people They've been misled and kicked
Raise my anger to the brink of explosion Burning away all the fear Hang to the edge of a burning volcano Eruption is swift it will take me from here Raise this anger till the edge of insanity Make all my senses numb Projecting all rage on entire humanity Make them acquaint with my fist And at a given moment It boils up and I can feel it coming through
Left, with only one eye fixed On the stick and shield before him Struggle to reclaim his rights For land and food and vote And twenty thousand miles from home Abundance is commonplace And twenty thousand miles from home Victory over the masses Right, with only one eye fixed On material needs and status Profit as his idolatry, devotion to the dollar Falling twenty fucking miles away from his hotel Are desperate bodies in the dust. Spreading twenty thousand miles away from home Teargas over the masses
