If it’s wrong to think that one Sex is better than other,
for one Sex to dominate the other,
If it’s wrong to think that one race is better than other,
for one race to dominate the other,
Why shouldn’t thinking that one ‘Species’ is better than other,
or for one species to dominate the other, be just as wrong?!

If Racism is bad, Sexism is bad
Shouldn’t “Speciesism” be just as bad?!
Aren’t we all guilty of it?!
How come it doesn’t worry us as much?

The other races, the other Sex,
they revolt, they express their hurt, they fight back,
they can make us feel their pain

But the other poor species,
they have a really hard time doing that, don’t they?
Guilt’s a funny thing, isn’t?
