Track Name: Crown Of Creation
For I am king - crown of creation
Top of the food chain, a feared predator
It’s in my genes - natural law
The nature of man is to subdue the earth

Processed commodities of violence and fear
Pre-packaged, refrigerated, stored in a shelf
Inwards, assholes, blood and pus
To feed my unbridled carnality

Genetically modified - cultivated varieties
Tremendous monstrosities built by man
Chopped up body parts - a fragmented carcass
Necessary, appropriate, economically reasonable

For I know what’s right - I always did
Just look at me, I’m in excellent health
A born hunter - vastly superior
I claim my right and you’re going to die

The season is on - gonna take what’s mine
Survival of the strong - I am now a killing machine
Normal, natural, necessary violence
Track Name: Decide
Oh, it’s your life, so you decide
And everyone else has got to live with your choices
And who am I, to tell you what’s right?
Everyone else has to respect your choices

Why can’t they see, you just can’t life without cheese
You’re doing all that you can - life is so unfair
You don’t want them to die, but it’s okay when they suffer?
Why can’t they just buy your cheap excuses?

Born into slavery - raised in a cage
Never saw the light of day - where’s your outrage?

Grew up with a pet and claim to love all of them
Compassion and Peace - completely your thing
But the fur on your coat just looks so damn cute
I mean, come on what’s the deal, got nothing else to do?

Meat? Only on weekends - grass-fed and organic
From the farmer next door, who loves his cows like his children
I just asked the animals and guess what they said
Oh what, they said they don’t care? Go to hell - fuck you!

No, I don’t want to see - suffering, death, agony and torment
I don’t want to hear - the anxious screams of pain, the ultimate death cry
I don’t want to know - constantly being raped, force fed until they die
So I just close my eyes - no it doesn’t happen, it is not present - no!

I will open up your eyes - force you to see
I will make you feel - sense of justice comes over me
I will make you hear - no longer deaf to their cries
I will make you see - and if I have to burn it right into your eyes

You will open up your eyes
You’ll feel what they’ve been through
You will make up your mind
You’ll see what they have seen
Track Name: Sorrow
I stay here today in front of you and sorrow
I sorrow for your death - you have fallen in a system of war
A War that you never wanted, but you were drawn
I know my apology doesn’t change a thing

In the midst of the crowd I’m staying, untouchable
Because all these people around me, they feel nothing

Oh, I never wanted it to happen
I never wanted you to become the target of greed
I never wanted you to be exploited and murdered
I'm so sorry and I hope you believe…

They feel no grief and suffering
They are dull and empty
I scream at them and look for attention
But these zombies simply do not notice anything

Oh, I never wanted it to happen
I never wanted you to become the target of greed
I never wanted you to be exploited and murdered
I'm so sorry and I hope you believe…

How many of you still have to die?
How many of you do not see what happens?
How many of you do not hear them screaming?
How many of you continue to tolerate this Holocaust?

Greed and exploitation until eradication
Track Name: To Kill
I clean my gear - the season is on
Donned and out - a thrill of anticipation
Someone has to do it and who will but me?

On my raised hide - I sit and wait
Murderous frenzy - can’t stand the anticipation
Someone has to do it and who will but me?

Going out to restore the natural order
Reclaiming the realm - a fighter for nature
I wipe out diseases and shelter for damages
Consequentially realize that you need me

A look through my gunsight - you’re in my firing line
You never stood a chance - now it’s time to die

I purge my surroundings and it starts with you
A purification which everyone gains from
The preservation of species is my greatest good
But this one here seems to consistently overpopulate

A look through my gunsight - you’re in my firing line
You never stood a chance - now it’s time to die

They’ve tried to tell me I’m wrong, but who are they to Judge?
What’s popularly accepted is not what needs to be done
They value one life over the other so I don’t give a fuck
The season is on, they can debate with my gun

One life for the other
The ultimate sacrifice
It’s to eat or to be eaten
We mustn’t continue to thrive
So it’s okey to kill a human
To save an animals live
