Lyrics

What does Direct Action Mean?

It means that you are no longer
prepared to sit back and allow terrible
Cruel things to happen. The camerman in Ethiopia took direct action
He filmed the worst disaster that
has ever happened to human beings. He
Realised it was too enormous a
problem to handle himself - so he took the
Films home in the hope other people
would help. They did. Are you prepared
To sit back any longer? Direct action in animal rights means causing
Economic damage to those who abuse and make profits from exploitation
Start!

It's possible to do things alone, slash tyres, glue up locks, butchers
Burger bars, the furriers,
smash windows, bankrupt the lot. Throw paint over
Shops and houses.
Paint stripper works great on cars. Chewing gum sticks
Well to fur coats.
A seized engine just won't start, sand in the petrol tank
Means that delivery's going nowhere.
When the new death shop opens up make
Sure you're the first person to be there. If the circus comes to town
Remember what goes up must come down. Stop contributing to the abuse
Yourself - don't eat meat,
don't buy leather. Buy non-animal tested make up
Herbal soap and shampoo's better

Try and form a group of people that
you know that you can trust and plan
Ambitious direct action,
sometimes risky but a must. Only when you have
Animal liberation will we obtain human freedom, when the last
Vivisectionist's blade is snapped.
It will be that one step nearer to peace
Direct action in the animal
movement is sussed and strong, and our final
Goal is not far off

Animal lovers, vandals, hooligans,
cranks; recognise the labels? They say we
Don't care about human beings.
We say all sentient beings, animal or human
Have the right to live,
free from pain, torture and suffering. They say
Because we are human and speak the
same, we matter more. Is our pain and
Suffering any greater or lesser than
that of animals? Human v. animal rights
Is as much a prejudice as black v.
white or the nazis versus the jews an
Affront to our freedom

Vivisection is a violation of human
beings, the same as it is for animals
We have a chemical world built on a pile of drugs to thanks for their
Experiments. Drugs are designed for profit, manufactured to suppress
Symptoms. Human freedom, animal rights. It's one struggle, one fight
When animal abuse is stopped then human abuse will soon stop also, an
Attitude of mind. "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind"
Start by protecting the weak, the defenceless, animals, the sick, the
Disabled. Compassion and emotion are our most important safety values
If we lose them, then 'we lose' the vitality of life itself
Emotional? Hooligans? Cranks?.
