Meat Is Murder
The Smiths Lyrics


Heifer whines could be human cries
Closer comes the screaming knife
This beautiful creature must die
This beautiful creature must die
A death for no reason
And death for no reason is MURDER

And the flesh you so fancifully fry
Is not succulent, tasty or kind
It's death for no reason
And death for no reason is MURDER

And the calf that you carve with a smile
Is MURDER
And the turkey you festively slice
Is MURDER
Do you know how animals die ?

Kitchen aromas aren't very homely
It's not "comforting", cheery or kind
It's sizzling blood and the unholy stench
Of MURDER

It's not "natural", "normal" or kind
The flesh you so fancifully fry
The meat in your mouth
As you savour the flavour
Of MURDER

NO, NO, NO, IT'S MURDER
NO, NO, NO, IT'S MURDER
Oh...and who hears when animals cry ?

Heifer whines could be human cries 
Closer comes the screaming knife 
This beautiful creature must die 
This beautiful creature must die 
A death for no reason 
And death for no reason is murder

And the flesh you so fancifully fry 
Is not succulent, tasty or kind
It's death for no reason 
And death for no reason is murder

And the calf that you carve with a smile 
Is murder 
And the turkey you festively slice 
Is murder 
Do you know how animals die?

Kitchen aromas aren't very homely 
It's not "comforting", cheery or kind 
It's sizzling blood and the unholy stench 
Of murder

It's not "natural", "normal" or kind 
The flesh you so fancifully fry 
The meat in your mouth 
As you savor the flavor 
Of murder

No, no, no, it's murder 
No, no, no, it's murder 
Oh...and who hears when animals cry?

SEE HOW YOUTUBE REFUSE TO SUGGEST MEAT IS MURDER IN THE SEARCH BAR

@candelala lmao what’s funny is that you have zero evidence for that. Just pulling tinfoil hat bullshit out of your ass.

Mr. Sisco

@matrix26uk thank you

That's because meat ISN'T murder.
Anyone that believes it is really needs to learn what murder is

Anybody else notice how YouTube straight up fails to suggest this song when you type it in the search bar?

syn_gypsy

If I type in vega- it gives me vegan, just like I wanted. What kind of tinfoil hatter shit are you insinuating?

@Bananadog5 It's 100% a stupid flag problem. It suggests 'murders' , 'murderer' and 'murdered'. That means that someone at youtube decided to set a flag just on 'murder'. I noticed the same thing with 'adults'. If you try to search "the adults are talking" by the strokes it is never suggested. But 'adult' and 'adulterers' are fine lol. I don't understand why the programming interviews at google are supposed to be so difficult if when you get the job you manage to flag 'adults' (I'm assuming for the sexual connotation) but not 'adulterer' which is explicitly sexual
