Don't Eat Me (song)

You call it meat
Packaged and neat
But it’s bloody murder
At the factory

Each helpless critter
Comes in terrified
Slipping on bloody concrete floors
After a long hard ride

In the cold frigid snow
Into your supercities
You’ got everything that grows but
You got no pity

We’re shoved down the chute by
Some mindless bloody brute
Who hits me with a stick as
I hear my children cry

Stench of blood revolting
Everything is red
In this factory
Ev’ry soul is dead

These chains and spinning gizmos want
Nothing but my gizzards
I thought you were my friend but
My flesh is too delicious

My eyes beg for mercy
Nobody’s there
Poke, prod, chain and shove
Why can’t you learn to care?

Please don’t kiss a corpse
Please don’t kiss a corpse
And if you kiss a corpse
Please don’t kiss me

Please don’t eat a corpse
Please don’t eat a corpse
And if you eat a corpse
Please don’t eat me

Please don’t eat me
Please don’t eat me
Every creature says
Please don’t eat me

(Then end the song by gently saying):
Please don’t eat meat
