Machinist - Interspecies Terrorism lyrics

I know the date it happens
On August 29th, 1997, it's gonna feel pretty fucking real to you too
Anybody not wearing two million sunblock is gonna have a real bad day, get it?
You think you're safe and alive?
You're already dead, everybody
Him, you, you're dead already
This whole place, everything you see is gone
You're the one living in a fucking dream
Because I know it happens!
It happens!

When I fÕ½ckin' croak
You better not come crying over my grave
'Cause I'll reach through the ground and fÕ½ckin' strangle ya

Animals must be off the menu
Because tonight they are screaming in terror
In the slaughterhouses, in crates, and in cages
Vile ignoble gulags of despair
I realized I'd heard those screams before
In the slaughterhouse, their eyes stabbed out and their tendons slashed
On the cattle ships to the Middle East
And the dying mother whale as a harpoon explodes in her brain
As she calls out to her calf
I discovered when we suffer, we suffer as equals
And in their capacity to suffer, a dog is a pig is a bear is a boy
Meat today is the new asbestos, more murderous than tobacco
CO2, Methane, and Nitrous Oxide from the livestock industry
Are killing our oceans with acidic, hypoxic dead zones
90% of small fish are ground up into pellets to feed to livestock
Vegetarian cows, today, are the world's largest ocean predators
The oceans are dying in our time
By 2048 all our fisheries will be dead
The lungs and the arteries of the Earth
Billions of bouncy little chicks are ground up alive
Simply because they are male
Only 100 billion people have ever lived
7 billion live today
And yet we torture and kill 2 billion sentient living beings every week
10.000 entire species are wiped out every year
Because of the actions of one
And we are now facing the sixth mass extinction in cosmological history
If any other organism did this a biologist would would call them a virus

[..] [2x]
