Might Makes Right


Guided by principle into the night 
Masked liberators cut through the wire 
These actions speak words all recognize 
Stop your wrong-doing or pay the price 

'Cause might makes right 
If we don't understand this we won't win the fight 
'Cause might makes right 
Through force unrelenting we'll make them comply 

Guided by principle into the street 
Confront the public and make them see 
There is no reason for all the abuse 
Stop eating meat or have no excuse 

When might makes right 
Their buoyed minds can't withstand this tide 
'Cause might makes right 
Our numbers are growing, we'll win the fight 

(Vegan Power, GO!) 

Yeah motherfuckers, you better believe it 
We ask nicely now, but there is a limit 
To what you can get away with 
Don't think we won't find out where you live 

Might makes right 
Don't forget 
Might makes right 
Through force unrelenting we'll win the fight

Like Animals

Let us return to the womb of the Earth 
LIKE ANIMALS, LIKE ANIMALS! 
There we will struggle, but we'll be whole 
LIKE ANIMALS, LIKE ANIMALS! 
We'll eat and we'll fuck, and we'll be free! 
LIKE ANIMALS, LIKE ANIMALS! 
And we'll never take more than we need 
LIKE ANIMALS, LIKE ANIMALS! 

EAT! FUCK! BE FREE! 
There is wisdom in simplicity 
EAT! FUCK! BE FREE! 
The animals know better than we 

At birth we emerge from the womb of our mother 
LIKE ANIMALS, LIKE ANIMALS! 
From there on in captivity we suffer 
LIKE ANIMALS, LIKE ANIMALS! 
We just want to eat, fuck, and be free! 
LIKE ANIMALS, LIKE ANIMALS! 
We all long for freedom instinctively 
LIKE ANIMALS, LIKE ANIMALS! 

EAT! FUCK! BE FREE! 
There is wisdom in simplicity 
EAT! FUCK! BE FREE! 
The animals know better than we 
EAT! FUCK! BE FREE! 
We all delight in the simplest things 
EAT! FUCK! BE FREE! 
Are they really so different than we? 

Let them be free!

Stewards of the Earth


You speak of dominion as if it is a god-given right to torture 
Defenseless creatures you put on this Earth and deprive them them of their nature 
Where in your book does it say "animals are nothing more than machines 
For you to use, for you to abuse?" 

For all your crimes against nature 

YOU'RE GONNA BURN! 
Animals deserve to live as they please

YOU'RE GONNA LEARN! 
Institutions without mercy

YOU'RE GONNA BURN! 
And if you're not a steward of the Earth

YOU'RE GONNA LEARN! 
You're gonna burn! 

You speak of humanity as if it is the only species that matters 
Though humans cause more pain to the Earth than any other 
Do you really think your god will save your soul despite the mess you've made? 
Either way, we're gonna make sure your dues are paid! 

For all your crimes against nature

YOU'RE GONNA BURN! 
Animals deserve to live as they please

YOU'RE GONNA LEARN! 
Institutions without mercy

YOU'RE GONNA BURN! 
And if you're not a steward of the Earth

YOU'RE GONNA LEARN! 
You're gonna burn! 

Burn, motherfucker, burn! 

Factory farms and laboratories, you're all gonna burn 
Captive breeders and vivisectors, you're all gonna learn 
There may be no god to judge you, but you're gonna burn 
Dominion ain't no excuse for torture, AND YOU'RE GONNA LEARN! 

For all your crimes against nature

YOU'RE GONNA BURN! 
Animals deserve to live as they please

YOU'RE GONNA LEARN! 
Institutions without mercy

YOU'RE GONNA BURN! 
And if you're not a steward of the Earth

YOU'RE GONNA LEARN! 
You're gonna burn!

The Way of Compassion

The way of compassion should not be tread lightly 
The path of culture is set by the mighty 
Go forth now with a righteous mission 
And do not relent until its completion 
Expose the myths of the omnivore for what they are 
Go forth and make the world understand 
The age of the meat-eater will come to an end 

They've had their chance to listen 
But they took for granted the chances given 
So feel no pity now when you smash 'em 
Strike them down with the hammer of compassion 
(Smash!) 

The way of compassion should not be tread lightly 
The path of culture is set by the mighty 
Go forth and make the world understand 
The age of the meat-eater will come to an end 
Now! 

They've had their chance to change 
But they persist to eat flesh anyway 
So show no mercy now when you smash ‘em 
Strike them down with the hammer of compassion 

Accept no excuses, none will suffice 
The way of compassion means mercy and might! 

The age of the meat-eater will come to an end

Coming for You

Call us whatever you want 
Vegan fascists or terrorists 
Just know that we are everywhere 
And the animals will have deliverance 

We're bringers of mercy and justice 
Sly saboteurs and activists 
We shut bastards down, that's what we do 
If you harm animals we'll be coming for you! 

Call me whatever you want 
But I am an animal, just like there rest 
Girl, don't deny that you want it 
When it comes to fucking, vegans are best! 

I'll arouse your lust and your wetness 
I'll gratify all of your senses 
Liberate and stimulate, that's what I do 
If you love animals I wanna be cumming for you!

Touch of Mercy

Girl, I've been longing for a touch of mercy 
I need tender lips tonight to restore me 
'Cause there's so much callousness in this world 
This wounded warrior needs your love 
So don't be coy because tomorrow I'll be gone 
And I might not return 
It's best not to analyze this too much 

Oh for shame, I cannot stay 
When the sun rises I'll be on my way 
There's a war to be fought, a war to be won 
My sole commitment–Animal Liberation! 

Our lives and our feelings–all temporary 
But in this moment we are both here 
So what shall we make of this energy? 
Melt into me as I draw you near 
And don't be coy because we're still animals 
And that's beautiful 
I want to unleash the animal in you 
Yield to your instincts! 

Oh for shame, I cannot stay 
When the sun rises I'll be on my way 
There's love to be made, and a war to be won 
My sole commitment–Animal Liberation!

Survival of the Fittest

Colon cancer and obesity–yeah, you get what you deserve 
You clog your bowels and arteries with products of suffering 
To those who eat like they don't give a fuck–yeah, you get what you deserve 
'cause natural selection is at work every time we eat 

No sympathy for the fat or the diseased 
Meat and dairy will be your undoing 
No tears shed for those who choose cruelty 
When you get diagnosed with heart disease, it won't be soon enough 
You'll get what you fucking deserve! 

Survival–survival of the fittest 
No pity–no pity for those who eat like shit 

Erectile dysfunction, chronic fatigue–yeah, you do it to yourself 
Go run some laps, go lift some weights, and fuck! Fuck like a beast! 
Our erections are stronger, we tend to live longer–yeah, we do it for ourselves 
'cause natural selection is at work every time we eat 

No sympathy for the fat or the diseased 
Meat and dairy will be your undoing 
No tears shed for those who choose cruelty 
When you get diagnosed with heart disease, it won't be soon enough 
You'll get what you fucking deserve!
