Lyrics

Heifer whines could be human cries

Closer comes the screaming knife This beautiful creature must die This beautiful creature must die A death for no reason And death for no reason is MURDER

And the flesh you so fancifully fry Is not succulent, tasty or kind It's death for no reason And death for no reason is MURDER

And the calf that you carve with a smile Is MURDER And the turkey you festively slice Is MURDER Do you know how animals die?

Kitchen aromas aren't very homely It's not "comforting", cheery or kind It's sizzling blood and the unholy stench Of MURDER

It's not "natural", "normal" or kind The flesh you so fancifully fry The meat in your mouth As you savour the flavour Of MURDER

NO, NO, NO, IT'S MURDER NO, NO, NO, IT'S MURDER Oh...and who hears when animals cry?
