"...But for the sake of some little mouthful of flesh, we deprive a soul of the sun and light, and of that portion of life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy."

Plutarch, C.A.D. 46-C 120

WHY ANIMALS MATTER/FACTORY FARMING


This song has been in our band set for a while now & we kicked off with it when we opened for P!nk at Cardiff Arena for the PAW Launch event on 21st August 07.' It went down so well we decided to record it.

Slaughterhouse Blues (You're goin' down)

You're in the wrong place
At the wrong time
With a sad face
At the end of the line
Yeah you're goin' down baby
Oh yes you are
You're goin' down, down, down
N' it's hard to save a life
N' it's hard to break the knife
Cos you're goin' down baby

You're in the meat line
With the engine hummin'
Callin' freak time
N' they ain't pullin'
Cos you're goin' down baby
Oh yes you are
You're goin' down, down, down
N' it's hard to save a life
N' it's hard to break the knife
Cos you're goin' down yeah, right down

You're in the blood house
With the humans comin'
In fear now
N' it's hard to keep on runnin'
You're goin' down baby oh yeah
Oh you're goin' down oh yeah
N' it's hard to save your life
N' it's hard to break the knife
Cos you're goin', oh, you're goin' down

Hey you're in the wrong place
At the wrong time
With a sad face
At the end of the line, baby
You're goin' down, down, down, down, down
Yeah you're goin' down babe, oh yeah
N' it's hard to save your life
N' it's hard to break the knife
Cos you're, you're goin' down, down, down, down
