1. Within The Walls of Babylon

Immersed in a sea of pain Chained to a lifetime agony Existence becomes a thorn stuck in the side of the innocents Born different, destined to suffer A throne usurped by man for a Kingdom plagued with tyranny Malicious, vile, merciless Modernity devours the children of earth disgraced Before humanity's demented eyes Driven by sickness civilization indulges in suicidal madness Within the walls of Babylon, wickedness is rampant And snakes crawl under virgin skin I seek a moral elevation To salvage hopes of paradise No more cupidity but altruism to restore harmony Under a red sky of dying nature Laments of the dead praise revolution Tears of the victimized Flow into a sea of despair

2. One Standard, One Ethic

In the mist of inferno, I seek salvation Filth cannot taint my allegiance for my heart Holds the truth My heart and my mind worship discipline and filter right from wrong Purification Sworn to justice to cast iniquities into the shadows of oblivion Untouched by the dirt of lust One standard, one ethic Redemption for all innocent life One standard, one ethic Reverance for the sentiment

3. Built Upon The Graves

Emissaries of demise slit the defenseless In an act of barbarity Sharp knives give the final embrace In a pool of red Deathtools forged in the flames of scorn Non human animals die in the name of selfish ignorance Blood spilled for lust In temples of terror Factory farms Vivisection laboratories Fur ranches Slaughter houses All replace concentration camps still injustice remains End this evil empire built upon the graves of murdered And devoured creatures Salvation I whisper thy name and scream for liberation Consumption of lifeless bodies is a vote for genocide

4. In The Embrace Of Truth

I am not tempted by your paradise of lies Never will I fester in the boels of decadence Committed to nobility for a higher destiny In the embrace of truth belongs my heart and soul I walk the path of righteousness My quest for justice is enlightened by the blazing sun of harmony I refuse to partake into man's craving for lechery A desire fueled by the flames of greed in this world Mother Culture is a legacy of prejudices Against non human animals

5. Day Of Apocalypse

I hear the trumpets of the apocalypse Announcing the end of man so please End this exploitation Thou shall not poison the earth Essence of all existence for with her We fall along into the abyss of avidity Sealing our fate with the kiss of death Defense of innocent life is my declaration Retribution, humanity harvests destruction As we have sown desolation Vision of apocalypse complete devestation Final judgement falls upon us as we rape the land When mother earth's lifeforce depletes Action must be taken to free the world from its sickness Action for justice leads to freedom Scorched landscape burned to ashes Original state of balance forever lost Creation of nature is drowned into concrete Oblivion embraces paradise while helpless species die We Forge this world into an hell Industrial madness consumes gala Witness the demise of life under the siege of humanity Breathless mother, helpless she dies

6. Evilization

Legions of demons advance in the shadow of mankind Infernal hordes of chaos wage war against earth Soldiers of doom pour venom on the land Final shreds of nature swing on the brink of abyss while non human life agonizes Anthropocentrism is tainted by the suffering of millions Admist inferno, I seek salvation to bring and end to your mindless destruction United we conquer a wind of protest blows to enlighten The blackness of ignorance when absolute evil forms I raise an avenging sword and strike the beast into its heart To preserve innocence, to protect the defenseless I am striving for an all encompassing golden age Where justice and compassion prevail In reaction to decadence emerges a shining order One that ensures freedom not enslavement Spoken Part: As tears fall from my eyes and roll over my cheek as a rain of sadness, I pray for the salvation of innocence but my mourning soul and bleedings heart know they are prayers upon deaf ears for I have witnessed so much disregard in the actions of our greed ridden civilization. After all the pain, after all the suffering non human animals have to endure., imprisoned in the factory farms, tortured in the vivisection laboratories and killed in the slaughterhouses, symbols of ignorance and cruelty, I hope that somewhere there is a place where they can finally rest in peace. But the sad and bitter truth is that no heaven awaits us, only an hell that man creates on earth, an hell that burns everything on its path, leaving ashes of desolation in its wake. Dominion over nature ensures our demise for we destroy the unique life support systems we’ll ever have, this beautiful planet which brought us into the sunlight. Love, compassion and justice are not just beautiful words, they are a weapon against the greed and selfishness of the society we live in. Love, compassion and justice are a weapon for revolution in the mind and in the soul of every man and every woman, a revolution for the coming of harmony. Veganism is compassion, is justice, is a tool for love and caring to prevail on this earth. The only true happiness is the one we all share in total freedom.
