I absolutely love to see young people changing the world for the better, which is one of the many reasons I love working for peta2. Seeing everything you all are doing never ceases to amaze me. Young people are most definitely making a huge effort to change the world around us. It’s awesome!


I wanted to tell you all about an all-girl band made up of three sisters, called Truth on Earth. Serena, Kiley, and Tess are all vegan and do all they can to help animals. Check out what their band Web site says:

We write original songs about major issues in the world that need attention and sustainable solutions brought to them. We try to make great sounding songs that pull you in and make you want to hear more in the hopes that our lyrics inspire you to take action as you learn that there is a lot that can be done. We believe in the power that music has to reach and connect people around the world.

Sweet, right? Their song, “Factory Farm” is all about—you guessed it—animals on factory farms. Here’s a portion of the lyrics:

Is it normal I wonder – to live in fear and pain? Never loved for a minute – just tormenting my brain. What kind of a person – slaughters helpless all day long? If a child kills animals – then humans, is it wrong?

Have a look inside my jail – You eat my suffering. I’ll stand in one place all my life while you’re – digesting my misery. And when your end is near – you’ll feel our agony. Our lives are a holocaust – not just the cow you eat.

When you were a child – you knew the difference. You loved my petting zoo cousin – in the safe little four wall fence. That burger’s disguised – you’re blinded by apathy. You forget as you eat – the bad karma is me?

Come join my nightmare now You’ll be sad you did. Hope you like my body parts, after they slice me into bits. Welcome to our death camp here on the factory farm. The Nazis would be proud – Where the hell’s our mom?

Go here to check out the music video for yourself.

Music is definitely a great way to spread a message, so keep doing what you’re doing, Truth on Earth!

Marta
