Personal Problem

Were you conceived with a weak sperm? 
That would explain your weak moral fabric 
You know what happens of factory farms 
So you can't justify your nasty habits 

Use an excuse I haven't heard 
Everyone struggles with changes at first 
If you give up so easily 
It sounds like a personal problem to me 

Yeh yeh, you started to "get sick too often" 
Yeh yeh, the doctor said "you're anemic" 
The truth is you ate bread, chips and french fries 
While you ignored proper nutrition 

Use an excuse I haven't heard 
It's a slight inconvenience at worst 
It caused a stir in your family? (On no, god forbid!!) 
It sounds like a personal problem to me 

The animals called... 
They told me to tell you "FUCK YOU!" 
If you can't hack it as a vegan 
We'll call you out on your excuses 

If you give up so easily 
It sounds likes a personal problem to me 

Step up 
Or fuck off

Better Than You

We're vegan 
We're better than you 
We're vegan 
You can eat our shit 
Go vegan 
Or just accept: we'll always be 
Better than you 

To new levels of moral righteousness 
We are ascending 
You can't fuck with this 
Powered by plants, we are gaining strength 
Putting an end to your ignorance 

Fuck you, you hippie 
Fuck you, you locavore 
Fuck you, you poseur environmentalists 
Fuck all your peace signs 
Fuck your excuses 
Fuck you, you're all full of shit 

We're vegan, we walk the walk! 

To new levels of moral righteousness 
We are ascending 
You can't fuck with this 
Powered by plants, we are gaining strength 
Putting an end to your ignorance 

We're vegan, we're better than you

Veganocracy

I have a dream that all shall be judged 
By the merit of their deeds 
Those of compassion will be enshrined 
The cruel regarded as weak 
No tolerance for those who insist 
What they eat is their choice 
Culture must shift to a new paradigm 
Let the ethic cleansing begin! 

Our way shall be the new way 
And our laws will be enforced 
There will be no escape 
Make no mistake–

Assimilate or be crushed 

Rule 
With an iron fist 
Ruthless 
Veganocracy 

Shut the fuck up about your rights 
You ignored the voiceless too long 
Your false sense of entitlement 
To the lives of others 
Is a debt you've been accruing 
Now it's time for you to pay 
We are karma, we are the law 
Vegan Power in your fucking face! 

Our way shall be the new way 
And our laws will be enforced 
There will be no escape 
Make no mistake–
Assimilate or be crushed

The Matriarch

In darkness she paces, shackled and alone 
She dreams of her family and open lands to roam 
Her body is weak, her spirit is broken 
She dreads the wrath of men with bullhooks 
She suffers the beatings and food deprivation 
She keeps performing because she has no choice 
For now she obeys, for now she conforms 
But she never forgets what has been done 

Time for elephant revenge 
Watch her revolt and stomp their faces in 
Time for elephant freedom 
She will be free or be avenged 

Now here they come, cars full of dipshits 
Clueless old men with grandchildren 
They see the signs as they enter the lot: 
"Boycott the circus" / "Ringling is cruel" 
Ignorance is bliss, don't question tradition 
Take your fucking seats and eat your popcorn 
It's just entertainment, and nothing more 
She won't forgive what has been done 

Time for elephant revenge 
Watch her revolt and stomp their faces in 
Time for elephant freedom 
She will be free or be avenged 

Prepare for the wrath of the matriarch 
Your three-ring circus of inbred pedophiles and juggalos won't stand a chance!

The Guy with Bitch Tits

"Eating soy increases estrogen" 
Says the guy, the guy with bitch tits 
"But eating steak makes you a man" 
Says the guy, the guy bitch tits 
His breasts sag like your grandma's 
But he's a masculine authority 
The one thing he's the king of 
Is irony 

"Vegans have low testosterone" 
Says the guy, the guy with bitch tits 
"Where do you get your protein from?" 
Says the guy, the guy with bitch tits 
An apparent expert on nutrition 
Even though he's fuckin' obese 
"We were meant to be carnivores, 
Look at our teeth...." 

Don't be the guy, the guy with bitch tits 
Don't be the guy, the guy with bitch tits 
Don't be the guy, the guy with bitch tits 
Don't be that guy! 

Pre-diabetic and impotent 
He's the guy, the guy with bitch tits 
He's due in for an artery stent 
He's the guy, the guy with bitch tits 
Nevermind that he's got a F.U.P.A. 
When he calls you a "fucking pussy" 
The one thing he's the king of 
Is irony 

Don't be that guy

The World Will See

The moral baseline is quite simple 
Each deserves to be left alone 
But the violence you commit 
In the name of profits 
Trumps your right to privacy 
It trumps your right to make money 
If you've got to rape and kill 
To make a living, then you can bet... 

We will infiltrate 
We will expose your every move 
We will document 
And the world will see what you do 

Proposed legislation and lobbying 
Cannot stop the tide of the truth 
The dedicated will infiltrate 
And dismantle you 
Slander us all you want 
Waste millions on petty laws 
In time they will be overturned 
You can bet the public will learn... 

We will infiltrate 
We will expose your every move 
We will document 
And the world will see you for you 

This tragic dance between industry and decency 
For the right to know the truth 
So many lives wasted 
Wasted money and wasted time 
This one's for the whistleblowers and investigators 
Filming abuse is not a crime

Sentimentalists (bonus track)
 
He says he loves animals 
But still he eats their flesh 
He can't imagine life without bacon 
Nor can he comprehend 
The hell from which it came 
It's a truth he won't accept 
I learned the facts, now I abstain 
But he calls me "sentimental" 
 
Is it reason or convenience 
which informs the way you live? 
Is your preference a mere product of your privilege? 
Is it logic or emotion 
which informs the way you think? 
How about some consistency 
You tender, little thing 
 
She says she's a feminist 
But she consumes products of rape 
She can't imagine life without cheese 
But she won't concede 
That mothers trapped on the farm 
Are penetrated against their will 
Impregnated, exploited 
So she can have their milk 
 
Is it fairness or self-interest 
which informs the way you live? 
Is your preference a mere product of your privilege? 
Is it ethics or indulgence 
which informs the way you think? 
How about some consistency 
You precious, fragile thing
