Ark of Suffering

from by Tourniquet



You think it's alright to destroy God's creation
They don't have a voice so who cares how we're treating them here
If you read his word you should know that he blessed them
I know your defense is to say "God said dominate them"

Do you think dominate means to kill just for sport?
Wear the fur from their backs, train them for circus acts?
Take our pets to be gased once their "cute" age has passed?

Don't you see in their eyes how they trust us
But man in his sin turns that trust into horrible pain
When God says to man give account of you life's work
We must be prepared to reply "Your creation I loved"

Locked behind steel cage forced to take drugs we've made
Cut them up just to show what we already know

Before they die... who will hear them cry?
