The Smiths

The Smiths were an English alternative rock band, formed in Manchester in 1982. Based on the song writing partnership of vocalist Morrissey and guitarist Johnny Marr, the band also included bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce. Critics have called them the most important alternative rock band to emerge from the British independent music scene of the 1980s.

Heifer whines could be human cries 
Closer comes the screaming knife 
This beautiful creature must die 
This beautiful creature must die 
A death for no reason 
And death for no reason is murder 

And the flesh you so fancifully fry 
Is not succulent, tasty or kind
It's death for no reason 
And death for no reason is murder 

And the calf that you carve with a smile 
Is murder 
And the turkey you festively slice 
Is murder 
Do you know how animals die? 

Kitchen aromas aren't very homely 
It's not "comforting", cheery or kind 
It's sizzling blood and the unholy stench 
Of murder 

It's not "natural", "normal" or kind 
The flesh you so fancifully fry 
The meat in your mouth 
As you savor the flavor 
Of murder 

No, no, no, it's murder 
No, no, no, it's murder 
Oh...and who hears when animals cry?
