Track Name: ...And The Hunting Season Begins
...And The Hunting Season Begins

Depredation
Decimation
Track Name: Unjustified
Unjustified

A tiger’s carcass outside its cage,
Missing head, legs and skin –
The pelt will be sold on the black market,
The parts will be used by medicine

You say animals can’t suffer
And don’t even feel
Don’t you realize
It’s their integrity you steal
They’re not some commodity
That’s only meant to be
Bought and sold –
Have you ever been told?

Depredation – Unjustified
Decimation – Turn the tide

Each day dogs are found
Along the highways ran over by cars
Others discovered in forests
Astray or tied to trees and starved...

Now, either neglect
Or malicious intent,
Torture is torture –
You may dissent
But there will come a day
When you won’t get away
With such a deed
That’s where it’ll lead

Depredation – Unjustified
Decimation – Turn the tide
Track Name: 5F
5F

(The Five Freedoms of animal welfare by the Farm Animal Welfare Council)

Free – set them free from thirst and hunger
No need to drag them under
Can’t treat them any way you please
No way

Free – discomfort never again
And liberate them from pain,
Injury and disease

Five freedoms – Can’t fail
Five freedoms – Prevail

Free – to express normal behavior
Mercy them and be their savior
If it means anything to you
Does it?

Free – from fear and distress at all cost
Or else it’s a total loss
Is the message getting through?

Five freedoms – Can’t fail
Five freedoms – Prevail

Free – in a world of deep frustrations
To prevent their humiliation
There’s so much a human can do
That’s right

Free – a universal declaration
Is like a new revelation
We must get the message through

Five freedoms – Can’t fail
Five freedoms – Prevail
Track Name: Rescue Shelter
Rescue Shelter

Just got to let them in:
Broken bones, barely living skin
Abandoned or lost – there's a place for all of you
Have no fear, we know what to do

Rescue shelter
Voluntary helpers

This is the last resort, the last hope
Nowhere else to be
This is their refuge
And, in a way, their sanctuary

To those who can't relate:
All you give is a reason to hate
Picture yourselves with no-one to stand by
Then you'll know what it’s like to wish to die

Rescue shelter
Voluntary helpers

This is the last resort, the last hope
Nowhere else to be
This is their refuge
And, in a way, their sanctuary
Track Name: The Prometheus Deception
The Prometheus Deception

Influential intellectual? Subverter in truth
For selfish ends you can never reach the Absolute

Do you really expect to be
Taken so damn seriously?

Watch history change in modern books
Affecting our perception
To idolize a virtual crook
Is a well forethought deception

You are aiming higher
Want to play with fire
The feeble you inspire
Yes you do
Scam in the guise of wisdom
You despise just to make the skies
Laugh at you

A judgement on you is due without a doubt:
By a bird of prey you’re going to have
Your liver eaten out

Now would you still expect to be
Taken so damn seriously?

Watch history change in modern books
Affecting our perception
To idolize a virtual crook
Is a well forethought deception

You are aiming higher
Want to play with fire
The feeble you inspire
Yes you do
Scam in the guise of wisdom
You despise just to make the skies
Laugh at you

You are playing with fire
Track Name: Poacher Bashers
Poacher Bashers

The call goes out again, another campaign
Raiding on land and water
With one thing in mind, a task well defined:
To stop wildlife’s slaughter

A lifelong mission – time again to rise
Against those who profit on the Earth’s demise

(Day by day) Stalking your prey
(Day by day) Such a foul play
(Day by day) But you’re going to pay:
Poacher bashers are coming your way

No way to deny, stare it right in the eye:
Actions must be taken
If you think they’re thugs running amok
You’re seriously mistaken

A lifelong mission – time again to rise
Against those who profit on the Earth’s demise

(Day by day) Stalking your prey
(Day by day) Such a foul play
(Day by day) But you’re going to pay:
Poacher bashers are coming your way

Conservation and protection
Always in the right direction
Going to bring it to perfection
No chance to escape detection

(Day by day) Stalking your prey
(Day by day) Such a foul play
(Day by day) But you’re going to pay:
Poacher bashers are coming your way
Track Name: Eco-ethic
Eco-ethic

Do you consider humans at the center of reality?
Do you really think God gave us supremacy
Over other creatures that populate the Earth?
Here’s my standpoint for what it’s worth:

Eco-ethic – Human-centredness must not stand

Pure falsehood concealed as philosophy –
Just look at ourselves and our oppressive hierarchy:
We use up our resources, feast until we ache
And all other species’ living space we take

Eco-ethic – Human-centredness must not stand

To rule or to care
To steal or to share

Do you consider humans at the center of reality?
Do you really think God gave us supremacy
Over other creatures that populate the land?

Human-centredness must not stand
Track Name: Death - A Happy Release
Death – A Happy Release

Lab cruelty
No-one’s meant to see
Year after year
It’s more and more severe

No pain relief will be given – guess I should reprimand
Myself for putting this joyful life to an end
A machine so exquisite, a splendid work of art
By rough and merciless hands is going to be torn apart

Death – A happy release

What it will legitimize you may find way too grim:
Even more torture, only to satisfy our whims
But I just try to take it and do the best i can
For the interest of truth, for the benefit of man

Death – A happy release

Lab cruelty
No-one’s meant to see
Year after year
Hundreds of millions disappear
Track Name: Benighted
Benighted

We’ve got our place, we’ve got our time
And the illusion that we’re doing fine
Not sure what our freedom is for
And yet we always want more

Here we stand disunited
As if we’ve been blinded
Here we stand disunited
Totally benighted

Promises with no guarantees
Enough to put our minds at ease
When we start to realize
It’s too late, we’re hypnotized

Here we stand disunited
As if we’ve been blinded
Here we stand disunited
Totally benighted

Where did we come from?
Where do we go?
Why are we here?
Does anyone know?

Here’s how we beguile
The time and meanwhile,
At a holiday resort
A working group is preparing a report...

Here we stand disunited
As if we’ve been blinded
Here we stand disunited
Benighted
