Rudimentary Peni, Death Church album

I tell you about the animals -
how they suffer how they die
You try to hide guilty doubt -
from me with an appeasing smile
You never want responsibility -
for this murderous cruelty
The wasteful piles of blood-soaked bodies -
You won't let your conscience see
Ask yourself what makes you want this -
torn ripped flesh so desperately
Are you worthy of having this suffering -
brought about to fuel your greed???
Not satisfied with killing animals -
you're killing millions of people as well
As the numbers increase of those dying -
in your man made 3rd World Hell
Millions dying all the time -
locked in your abattoir of greed
Whilst you destroy them + yourself -
by taking much more than you need
There is no justice in this death -
no illusion I'll let you hide behind
The tradition you use to hide animal murder -
is nothing but a thin disguise

"Pig in a blanket" by Rudimentary Peni

Written by Schizoaffective genius Nick Blinko way back in 1983. Took this long to discover via late night Zeb's Film Circus on public access channel 16 (Schenectady, NY - the city that used to light and haul the world). Couldn't quite make out all the lyrics or figure out who it was from the TV. Finally got it and now that the lyrics are clear...sort of makes me feel I should (at least) eat less meat. Record is out of print and called Death Church. They are still making music today too. Dark Dark Dark UK Punk music. Thanks Zeb. Thanks Nick...
