Track Name: Unlock the cage
Unlock The Cage.

Your face, it's smeared, in pain and torture of ten, thousand, dead rats, but do you care because you, look nice, you smile, no second thought, no second chance, for them, they die, all funded by consumer airs,

There's many alternatives to pointless experiments, their pain is never ending, the unjust suffering and deathly conclusions, manufacturer profits pending,

There's already a better way, a more humane less evil way to feed the egos and maintain the vanity, close the labs, unlock the cage, there's better ways to earn a wage, than torture testing and exploitation,

Many alternatives, cruelty free ingredients, pointless experiments, carried out by deviants, unjust suffering, incomprehensible, deathly conclusions, broken neck, decapitation,

No, this, is, not ok, we, must, take, a stand,

Boycott companies, bring them to their knees, don't spend your money, hit them where it really hurts,

Do we speak a dead language, do the protests go unheard, I see no beauty in vanity, can we end this insanity?

Skin tested chemicals, force feeding rituals, these intellectuals, suffer and feel, pain and get frightened too, just like us humans do, unable to subdue, the fear of what comes next,

Mass execution, these animals are worthless now, supplies are endless, bring in the next batch, mass execution, these animals are worthless now, supplies are endless, the circle of death,

Boycott companies, bring them to their knees, don't spend your money, hit them where it really hurts,

Many alternatives, cruelty free ingredients, pointless experiments, carried out by deviants, unjust suffering, incomprehensible, deathly conclusions, broken neck, decapitation,

There's already a better way, a more humane less evil way to feed the egos and maintain the vanity, close the labs, unlock the cage, there's better ways to earn a wage, than torture testing and exploitation,


No, this, is, not ok, we, must, take, a stand,





Boycott companies, bring them to their knees, don't spend your money, hit them where it really hurts,
Track Name: Rumours of our demise are not greatly exaggereted
Rumours Of Our Demise Are Not Greatly Exaggerated.

Look at the world we have become, look at the damage we have done, this is our home, our only one, so why do we seem so intent killing this planet that we rent, the time to act has reached the point of no return,

Why? Species extinct, ice caps melt, contaminate, oceans rise,

So will we just sit idly by, watching the world around us die and fuck the next generation, or do we change the way we see, take responsibility, and start this uphill fight we can't afford to lose,

Stop! Nuclear tests, fracking the earth, poisoning the skies, plastic waste into the seas,

A population ruled by greed, but we can't eat or drink money, if only trees gave off Wi-Fi, maybe we wouldn't sacrifice, world leaders selfish to the core, getting rich and killing off the poor, destroying natures natural cause, profits from misery and wars, why do we think so selfishly? Why do we act so carelessly? Why don't we give a fuck, for those we leave behind?

There's a problem with humanity, lack of judgement, lack of sanity, why do we regard wealth, more than we regard life?

This is our only world, this is our only world, this is our only world, it's time to put things right.
Track Name: Clones
Clones.

Humans evolving, there's an army of clones, just millions of people, staring down at their phones, there's no real conversation, it's all updates or tweets, over two thousand friends, but nobody speaks,

Dead to the world, eyes open but blind, this techno addiction, it'll fuck with your mind,

Step right up, come and sign the line, updated models every year, once you're in, it's hard to get out, contractual slaves living in fear, a gigabyte fix to relax the mind, living your life trapped inside a screen, the real world is pushed away, ignorant bliss to the unseen,

Turn it off, turn it off,

Put it down, turn it off, go outside, and breathe,

the addiction's taking hold, ever changing world passing you by, caught in a trap, as time flies, family and friends all lost in time, the giga addiction, the perfect crime, you've nothing left, that's hard to bare, so far in but you don't care, you try to speak but no one's there, there, there, no one's there,



Put it down, turn it off, go outside, and breathe, put it down, turn it off, go outside, and breathe, put it down, turn it off, go outside, and breathe, put it down, turn it off, go outside and, turn it off, put it down, turn it off, turn it off, turn it off, go outside, turn it off, and breathe.

Production Line Soldier

Sent to a foreign land, is it liberation, rifle strapped in hand, or just an invasion, take orders, shoot to kill, shoot to kill now, no mercy or free will, do as you're told,

Why do we take their lies, their lies, why do we fuel their fires, their fires, why do we kill for gain, their gain, why do they shift the blame, the blame,

You fight for the free of us, you're a killing machine now, from the lies that they spread to us, brain washed instigation, in the name of democracy, they will claim you're free, now you're a memory, you served your purpose,

It's time to end this hatred, this murder of the innocent, your wars of freedom are just for gain, financial fucking gain, so no, I won't support a world, a world, full of ignorance, fuck no, I won't support a war, dropping bombs, on the innocent,

Why do we take their lies, why do we fuel their fires, why do we kill for gain, why do they shift the blame, why do we take their lies, why do we fuel their fires, why do we kill for gain, why do they shift the blame, why do we take their lies, why do we fuel their fires, why do we kill for gain, why do they shift the blame,

Sent to a foreign land, is it liberation, rifle strapped in hand, or just an invasion, but now you can't come home, come and praise the hero, your name is etched in stone.
Track Name: Box of lies
Box Of Lies.

T.V. lies, spreading fear and hatred 24 hours a day, media control, never let the truth ruin good stories, bigotry and blame, creating race wars to, separate us all, divide the world, manipulated masses force fed myths obey,

This is what, they want you, to believe, question what, they tell you, don't believe,

Implementing techniques, cherry picked celebrity bullshit front page news, for dumbing down your world, government corruption, war, death, fraud, using sex to sell, naked flesh shoved in your face to part with cash, system mind control, stand in line, watch, listen, buy,

Question everything you see, they don't want you to be free, the daily rag, the evening news, spewing out conflicted views,

ITV and BBC, spouting shit on your T.V. twisted words, malicious lies, right wing propaganda rise, X-Factor, Strictly, The Voice, they're charging you to have a choice, reality? It's really not, they're taking you for all you've got,

Track Name: It makes no sense to me
It Makes No Sense To Me.

You only see the skin, outdated demeanour, no clue what lies within, human failure, you're not, so great, no truth in what you say, ignorance mixed with hate, you were not born this way,

It makes no sense to me, you judge society, it makes no sense to me, you judge society, based on race,

You listen to them speak, paranoia sets in deep, confused and full of rage, unwilling to engage,

It makes no sense to me, you judge society, it makes no sense to me, you judge society, it makes no sense to me, it makes no sense to me,

You see the way they dress, different culture, different style, unable to digest, too dumb, too vile, your point of view, shallow in your pettiness, only matters to you, nothing, nothing to us,

It makes no sense to me, you judge society, it makes no sense to me, you judge society, based on race,

But what you failed to see, we're all born equally, and your spiteful narrow mind, won't overcome mankind,

It makes no sense to me, you judge society, it makes no sense to me, you judge society, it makes no sense to me, it makes no sense to me.
Track Name: Bloody traditions
Bloody Traditions.

Flush it out and make it run, how the fuck can you call this fun, chase it down and rip it to bits, to you it's a sport and that makes you a prick,

Pompous snobs dressed up to kill, murdering foxes for the thrill, to these evil minds, it's all a game, no remorse, morals or fucking shame,

Save our wildlife from these scum, save our wildlife from these scum, save our wildlife from these scum, make it stop,

You love to hunt, to catch a kill, no conscience about the blood you spill, traditions are old and need to end, support the sabs who protect and defend,

Pompous snobs dressed up to kill, murdering foxes for the thrill, to these evil minds, it's all a game, no remorse, morals or fucking shame,

This means war, hunt the hunt, this means war, hunt the hunt, hunt the hunt, hunt the hunt, hunt the hunt, hunt the hunt,

Save our wildlife from these scum, save our wildlife from these scum, save our wildlife from these scum, make it stop.
Track Name: Tilikum
Tilikum.

Captured in Iceland, November 83, two years old and frightened, taken from the sea,

One life, taken away, he spent the next year in a zoo, one family, in pain, forced into a medical pool, one heart, distraught, transferred to Sea World 1992, no life,

Not ours to abuse, not bred for misuse,

Tilly had twenty one calves, in captivity, all bred for entertainment, tricks for a fee, eight times a day, seven days a week, no empathy, his health deteriorating, needs to be free,

Locked away in solitary confinement now, Tilly's lost the will to live, the hopes and dreams have gone,

He's stressed and becomes aggressive, three people dead, but the torture continues, living in hell,

Tilly's kept in isolation, limited ability to swim, he lies still in the water, he has a collapsed dorsal fin, his teeth ground to nothing, from chewing through his concrete home, no love, no care, no compassion, no interaction, he's all alone,

All alone, in a vegetative state, all alone, no companions, no mate, all alone, this is no life, no life,

Just for your entertainment, Tilly's life is lost, a life led in misery, did you know the cost,

Tilly returns to performing, the show must go on, no tricks, no food, you'll suffer, they don't belong,

Tillys health spirals downwards, it's another case of pneumonia, the most common death cause, in captive dolphins and orca whales, January 2017, it's announced that Tilikum has died, thirty four years trapped and tortured, he's not the first, he won't be the last,

Be the last, in captivity, be the last, death sets them free, be the last, tortured for gain, boycott fast.
