FACTORY FOOD

I saw the scowl first,
then the wounds.
You just sat scared
and watched me move.
I knew you were factory food.

I wanted to love you,
but you were just factory food.

You tried to move,
but you couldn’t walk.
You tried to speak,
but you couldn’t talk.
It happens when you’re factory food.

I wanted to help you,
but it’s no use when you’re factory food.

You’ve been cooped up,
with no room to breathe.
No life in you,
I had to leave,
‘cos you were just factory food.

I’d loved to have stayed there,
but you were just factory food.

What sort of person
locks up the living?
With that sort of treatment
you try forgiving.
Not when you’re factory food.

I’d loved to have loved you,
but you were just factory food.

Not just animals tortured,
we all follow rules.
We’ve got our prisons,
asylums and schools.
All of us are factory food.

They’re trying to turn us
all into factory food.

All of us are factory food.
