what’s in it for you my friend for you to just walk away? can’t you feel the mothers’ pain?
their sons’ about to die again why do you keep ignoring them? they wish to live but you just won’t let
and i can see you’re numb it’s time to wise up it’s time to wake what’s in it for you
that makes you look the other way? what do you have to gain that’s worth to put them all through hell?
is what’s in it for you oh, hell that’s what’s in it for you for us and all their suffering
is a vicious cycle where we all pay will you just give away and let the future go to hell?
is what’s in it for you oh, hell that’s what’s in it for you to hell for what’s in it for you
oh, hell is what’s in it for you for us
This is the first song I recorded after I went vegan almost two years ago. It's a statement of empathy and I thought
a lot about whether I should release it or be quiet.
The political side, which is a characteristic of Inmyths' lyrics,
was stronger and this is the first humble record that aims to give a voice to the voiceless, be them animals, or the
generation that is not yet born and doesn't know what world will exist when they come.
On my recent path I
have found an alignment of my practices with my values and that gives me a sense of tranquility and peace.
However, I have also found much animosity simply for trying to spread the idea that great animal
suffering is unnecessarily caused by us humans.
I respond as I know how, with songs, which I hope will open minds and above all hearts.
