New life enters upon the earth
but greed fouls the precious birth
He takes his first baby breath
unknowing of his destined death.
Mother protects him all she can
but she's powerless against man
As soon as he was able to stand
he met the harsh human hand.
To the dairy farm he is waste
mother's milk he'll never taste
All of her milk we humans take
he's denied mother for dairy's sake.
He arrives at the farm for veal
from innocent birth to someone's meal
In his lonely, barren crate he cries
hopelessness and terror in his eyes.
His would-be loving mother
has frantically lost another
Her relentless bellows easily heard
and her anguish clear without word.
Dairy kills - that's the deal
but the solution is to boycott veal?
Break the chain at it's start
don't have dairy - have a heart.
