lyrics

You gentlemen who think you have a mission
to purge us of the seven deadly sins
should first sort out the basic food position
then start your preaching that's where it begins

you lot who preach restraint and watch your waist as well
should learn for once the way the world is run
however much you twist or whatever lies that you tell
food is the first thing morals follow on

so first make sure that those who are now starving
get proper helpings when we all start carving
what keeps mankind alive

what keeps mankind alive
the fact that millions
are daily tortured stifled punished silenced and oppressed
mankind can keep alive thanks to its brilliance
in keeping its humanity repressed
for once you must try not to shirk the facts
mankind is kept alive
by bestial acts
