I'm just going to leave this here... Comments and changes are highly appreciated, as are further works that you may have. I'd love to hear all of the pieces you have created!

Bacon

They raised me in her faeces
In her blood and in our bones
Caged us from the sunlight
And I whisper up alone
I am someone’s brother, someone’s cousin, someone’s son

Take my teeth so I can’t chew
Paint my skin with fire
Feed us till we cannot walk
And again I try to say
But I am someone’s brother, someone’s cousin, someone’s son

You pray us with your poisons
And lace it in our feed
Then you cart us into trucks and ships
And I say it louder still
But I am someone’s brother, someone’s cousin, someone’s son!

It’s days and weeks of painful grief
Alas, we know no other
We stand so not to break our friends
And I whisper to the wind
But I am someone’s brother, someone’s cousin, someone’s son

We are hearded from our prison
Then pushed into another
I hear the screams, I smell the pain and to you all I cry
But I am someone’s brother, someone’s cousin, someone’s son!

We are shoved onto conveyer belts
As you zap us in our eyes
I am voiceless in my screaming
And STILL I call it louder
But I am someone’s brother, someone’s cousin, someone’s son!

My legs have been tied up
Though I struggle as I could
There is murder all around me
And I scream, and I scream,
But I am someone’s brother, someone’s cousin, someone’s son!

And then my nightmare’s over
As flesh, and soul divide
But still we are not heard
And so I whisper gently
I was someone’s brother, someone’s cousin, someone’s son.

EARTH LIBERATION FRONT

The sweetest eyes tend to peer out
From behind heavy iron bars
Deprived of their desires.

The loneliest hearts often beat
In objects to be sold
Left dying in the cold.

The saddest part of all this is
That most of us are blind
To the horror that just is
Industry.

I will be content
When all the beings are
Free to run or fly
To roam the Earth and sky.

I will not stop fighting
Till all the beings are
Free to run and fly
Over the Earth and sky
Liberate tonight.

The saddest sounds always come from
The throats of those in chains
They’re crying out their pains
The innocent voices can’t speak to us
But we can comprehend
They need us to understand

I will be content
When all the beings are
Free to run or fly
To roam the Earth and sky.

I will not stop fighting
Till all the beings are
Free to run and fly
Over the Earth and sky.

We’ll liberate the planet
We’ll liberate all beings great and small
We’ll set all the earthlings free.
We’ll liberate the planet
We’ll liberate all beings great and small
We’ll set all of our friends free.
