about

Some people say you should treat your body as a temple. A closer look at the food industry tells us we’ve chosen the opposite way. We use more and more artificial enhancers to “better” our food. We use chemicals to make our food more preservable. We use antibiotics to keep our livestock “healthy”. We use artificial sweeteners or loads of salt for our prefab or so-called fresh products to make them taste “better”. We simply have no knowledge of or control over what is done to our food. And with this compromising trend of food manipulation we are not only killing animals for food, but also killing ourselves. Sadly! Because we have more knowledge about human health nowadays than we ever had.

lyrics

Race me down to the abattoir
To a world of endless consumption
We need room for our livestock to feed
While we feed on their corpses

Set your habits aside
And look a little closer
See what we’ve become
Murderers
Murderers
Murderers
Of ourselves.

It’s a new world order;
Chemicals ruling our tongues
Food’s injected with poison
Adding flavour to our meals
Cancers eating our systems

Set your habits aside
And look a little closer
See what we’ve become
Salt your veins -Sugar our hearts
With no compassion
And submit to mass consumption

Murderers
Murderers

Break free from the abattoir
Don’t eat yourself to ruins
Our stomachs turned into living graves
How can we deny?
We’re murderers
Murderers
Murderers
Killing ourselves

Sweet Empire has a strong on animal rights, the environment, politics, and religion. ... more
