New Ethic

This song is by Earth Crisis and appears on the album Destroy the Machines (1995).

This is the new ethic
Animals' lives are their own
And must be given respect
Reject the anthropocentric falsehood
That maintains the oppressive hierarchy
Of mankind over the animals
It's time to set them free
Their lives reduced to biomachines
In the factory, farm and laboratory
Dairy, eggs and meat, fur, suede, wool, leather are the
End products of torture, confinement and murder
I abjure their use out of reverence for all innocent life
Wildlife's right to live in peace
In their natural environment
Without this civilization's interference
Can no longer be denied
Must no longer be denied
To make a civilization worthy
Of the word civilized
The cruelty must end
Starting within our own lives

Reject the anthropocentric falsehood
That maintains the oppressive hierarchy
Of mankind over the animals. It's time
To set them free

Veganism is the essence of compassion and peaceful living
The animals are not ours to abuse or dominate
I abjure their use out of reverence
I abjure their use out of reverence
I abjure their use out of reverence
For all innocent life
