This song was forgotten about for years, but recently unearthed. A protest song about eating meat, lol. Tastily done of course.


Look out for lions
And spirits who
Will tell you that
they hold the only clue

Lookout for lions
Lookout for lies
We only see the world through human eyes

Sunday you amaze your maker
Lying prostrate at his feet
Monday you support the ones who crucify the things you eat

Look out for knowledge
You may not want
To be so cavalier
And nonchalant

Teddies sales for Africa
To shoot up all the innocents
Trophys hanging from his wall
Reveal of the myth of self-defense

Knee-deep on the killing floor
The stench of death and wasted lives
All the warmest hearts to go to the
Butchers the sharpest knives.
