From the recording Agents of Absolution


Live to be Slaughtered

When there is no meaning to life
and freedom is not an option
in their boxes they waste away
and try to survive another day

They spend their lives inside a cage
they suffer in misery and exist in pain
they live to be slaughtered

Their world is of sterile concrete
Metal wire on barren floors
the lucky ones are not abused
but are mentally scarred and bruised

Why is a life given no meaning
or just a number sentenced to die
and where is respect for the living
or is that something we have long been missing ?
