Shelter - Civilized Man lyrics

There's a war in the day no peace at night
There's blood on the hands of man yet we don't sympathize
The meateater kills the cows they just depersonalize to justify
Their own lust as the helpless die
And its ironic how we cry for world peace but the violence won't
Decrease unless our murders cease. So understand in the slaughter-
house who's the beast and I demand that the innocent be released

Well I've tried the best I can. I've tried to understand
Civilized man so-called civilized man
Yes I've tried the best I can but who can understand civilzed
Man?

Guilt free so-called morality. Fallacy. The four food groups just
Western medicine quackery
( meat would be ) $35 a pound but our taxes subsidize as 35
Starve as we gourmandize
The grains that could feed the world go to their industry to
Fatten up the cattle and I protest
Rain forests once here kiss goodbye the biosphere ozone nightmare
Just see the people don't even care

Well I've tried the best I can. I've tried to understand
Civilized man so-called civilized man
Yes I've tried the best I can but who can understand civilzed
Man?

Guilt free we overlooked the blood and brutality
And the TV propaganda covers heinous reality
A plea to the people of this land to do what they can with hope for a
Civilized man

Well I've tried the best I can. I've tried to understand
Civilized man so-called civilized man
Yes I've tried the best I can but who can understand civilzed
Man?
