"Down On The Farm"

Meet the product of laboratory tests
Stuffed in cages, a maze of metal nests
Drunk on hormones, they grow till they're grotesque

(Chorus - repeat 3 times)
It barely passes for a life
and at the end - a butcher's knife--

(Chorus - repeat 4 times)
They're just animals, what's the harm?
Another day of dirty work, down on the farm--
It barely passes for a life
And at the end - the butcher's knife

(Chorus)
They're just animals, what's the harm?
Another day of dirty work, down on the farm
Meet the workers, their masks are flecked in blood
See the feathers and the shit ground into mud
Snap their necks, and watch them crumple with a thud
You turn off your humanity, To try to feed your family

You talk about dominion like a license to do anything you please

But your made-up book has some advice for what to do unto the least of these

Meet your dinner, see it sizzle in a pan
It's come a long way from the place where it began
You're the last in a long chain of dirty hands
If that's too hard to digest, Keep repeating with the rest

They're just animals, what's the harm?
Another day of dirty work, down on the farm
