Eat To Win


There is a war, and me must fight 
But we won't win if we don't eat right 
Billions are suffering, so we must prevail 
You want Vegan Power? 
You better eat KALE!! 

Tofu, rice, and beans–BEANS! 
And dark leafy greens–GREENS! 
Fruits and nuts and seeds–SEEDS! 
Partake of these to smash enemies 

War is upon us, like it or not 
No hippies or weaklings, we need juggernauts 
'Cause change never comes from asking nicely 
You want Liberation? 
You better eat broccoli!! 

Tofu, rice, and beans–BEANS! 

And dark leafy greens–GREENS! 

Fruits and nuts and seeds–SEEDS! 

Partake of these to smash enemies  

Born to lose, eat to win! 
Toughened by tempeh, strengthened by seitan 
Born to lose, eat to win! 
We scoff at the phrase "protein deficient" (HA!) 

("Where do I get my protein? What, are you a fuckin' idiot??") 

Show them a vegan like they've never seen 
Primed to deliver one million ass beatings! 


Tofu, rice, and beans–BEANS! 

And dark leafy greens–GREENS! 

Fruits and nuts and seeds–SEEDS! 

Partake of these to smash enemies

You Must Hate Yourself

Eat at McDonald's? 
You must hate yourself 
Drink milk and soda? 
You must hate yourself 
Feed your kids hotdogs?
You must hate them too 
Since you're killing yourself you may as well take 'em with you 
Right?

I wouldn't give a fuck if you destroyed yourself
But your actions affect more than you 
The example you're teaching your fat fucking kids 
Is that being fat and diseased is normal
You suck


Meat at every meal? 
You must hate yourself
Cheese on everything? 
You must hate yourself 
Your wife keeps gaining weight 
You must hate her too
Well, it's no surprise because she eats just like you 
*gag* 


I wouldn't give a fuck if you destroyed yourself 
But your actions harm the innocent
Billions of animals suffer on factory farms 
For you to become fat and impotent 
Why do you hate yourself?

Building a Culture

We're building a culture, we're building it strong 
We're crushing the cowards who try to prolong 
The sick system of factory farming 
They'll be no match for our vegan army! 

YOU BETTER BELIEVE–That day will come 
YOU BETTER BELIEVE–Our will shall be done 
YOU BETTER BELIEVE–This war will be won 
YOU BETTER BELIEVE 

We're reaching your children, we're changing their minds 
We're teaching them truth, exposing your lies 
Meat and dairy are unnecessary 
Your efforts to stop us will be arbitrary 

YOU BETTER BELIEVE–That day will come 
YOU BETTER BELIEVE–Our will shall be done 
YOU BETTER BELIEVE–This war will be won 
YOU BETTER BELIEVE–You better believe! 

We've come to fucking conquer!!!!

Feral Nights

In this world with so much between us
We suppress our animality
Our minds corrode, trapped within our cages
All we want is to be free
What we need–yeah, what we need 
Are feral nights beneath the trees 
In the temples of the forest 
I'll worship between your knees 

Give it to me, give it to me 
Sweet goddess of fertility
Give it to me, give it to me 
I crave the fruit from your tree 

Nothing's better than nothing between us
Let's embrace our humanity 
Forget about all the rules they taught us 
Let's take our clothes off and be free 
What you need –yeah, what you need 
Is a sensual awakening 
In cathedrals of the night
I'll fulfill you repeatedly 

Give it to thee, give it to thee 
My vegan seed of virility
Give it to thee, give it to thee
If you desire you shall receive 

I feel you shakin' 
Now feel me shakin'
This is true liberation 
I feel you shakin' 
Now feel me shakin' 
Close your eyes and feel the sensation

No Breed Nation

Now, ask yourself “what kind of prick 
Says they love dogs but won't get theirs fixed?”  
Millions are starving with mange in the cold 
But you've got a problem with birth control? 
You must be some sort of stupid yuppie bitch
Who buys from pet stores or breeders
But then you cry when dogs are euthanized 

No breed nation
'Til each has a home
No breed nation
And while you're at it, fix yourself too

Yeah, no one likes to hear of our friends
Being put down for lack of homes 
I'm willing to bet those with the needles 
Are truly the ones who hate it most 
I swear you must be some sort of stupid yuppie bitch 
Who believes the bullshit of the CCF 
They're just a smear-group playing swords with their dicks

No breed nation 
'Til each has a home
No breed nation 
And while you're at it, fix yourself too

Conquest

We fly our flag boldly in the wind 
As we go forth to bring cruelty’s end 
We cast our judgment and force our beliefs 
By the power of plants we are gaining strength
You'll honor the lives of all who can breathe 
No more cages or factories
And if you oppose us then you will be
Crushed by the fist of Veganocracy 

We fight for all sentient beings 
Now take the reins of history 
And speak for those who can't speak
Our war is waged 
We will not retreat 

Rise!  
We've come to conquer 
Fight! 
Rise to fight!
We've come to conquer 

You've known all along that this day would come 
The wrath of the vegans o'ertakes your throne 
Now we enforce our law upon the land 
The animals no longer belong to man 
At last we can all eat, fuck, and be free 
No more slaughter or slavery 
And if you oppose us then you will be 
Crushed by the fist of Veganocracy 

We fight for all sentient beings 
Now take the reins of history 
And speak for those who can't speak
Our war is waged 
We will not retreat

Righteous victory 
From sea to shining sea 
A new manifest destiny 
Compassion is the only way! 

Rise!  
We've come to conquer 
Fight! 
Rise to fight! 
We've come to conquer

Hey Vegans!


Hey vegans! 
Let's hone our strategies 
It's time we embrace practicality and focus our will collectively 
Hey vegans! 
We're gonna tell you what that means 
So listen up 
No more crying about "hurtful words" 
Be strong and SMASH! or shut the fuck up 

They expect us to be 
Weak, malnourished, fatigued 
They judge us by what they see 
Don't you forget! 

Hey vegans! 
You've got responsibilities 
You're ambassadors for those who can't speak, represent this movement positively 
Hey vegans! 
Here's part of what that means 
So listen up 
Practice good hygiene, eat like a champ, tone up those muscles 
And floss your fucking teeth! 

They expect us to take 
ourselves too seriously 
They judge us by how we act 
Don't you forget–TO LAUGH! 

If you wanna care for the animals 
First you gotta care for yourself 
'Cause no one respects one with bad breath 
No matter how noble their ideals 
And the world may think we're a fucking joke 
They call us fags and terrorists 
But let them say what the fuck they want 
'Cause they don't know who the fuck they're dealing with

Fur-Wearing Bitch

Last time I checked, you don't live in tundra 
You live in the hills of Southern California 
It's sunny and warm, and you're filthy rich 
If you wear fur, it just means you're a bitch 

You heard that right, we ain't just name-callin' 
That's a fucking fact 
If you wear fur, it means you're a bitch 
And you better watch your back! 

Fur is fucked 
You're a fur-wearing bitch 

Don't care if you're 80, I give no respect 
To someone who wears a fox on their neck 
Good thing you're old, you'll be dying soon 
And when you die, take your trend with you 

You heard that right, grandma ain't safe 
We tell it like it is 
Fur is fucked up, no matter what age 
Wear it at your own risk! 

Fur is fucked 
You're a fur-wearing bitch 
Fur is fucked 
You're a fur-wearing CUNT
