Whats In It For You

What’s In It For You?

Editor's Notes EN This is the first song I recorded after I went vegan almost two years ago. It's a statement of empathy and I thought a lot about whether I should release it or be quiet. The political side, which is a characteristic of Inmyths' lyrics, was stronger and this is the first humble record that aims to give a voice to the voiceless, be them animals, or the generation that is not yet born and doesn't know what world will exist when they come. On my recent path I have found an alignment of my practices with my values and that gives me a sense of tranquility and peace. However, I have also found much animosity simply for trying to spread the idea that great animal suffering is by us humans caused unnecessarily. I respond as I know how, with songs, which I hope will open minds and above all hearts.

What’s In It For You?

what’s in it for you my friend
for you to just walk away?
can’t you feel the mothers’ pain?
their sons’ about to die again
why do you keep ignoring them?
they wish to live but you just won’t let
and i can see you’re numb
it’s time to wise up
it’s time to wake
what’s in it for you
that makes you look the other way?
what do you have to gain
that’s worth to put them all through hell?
is what’s in it for you
oh, hell that’s what’s in it for you
for us
and all their suffering
is a vicious cycle where we all pay
will you just give away
and let the future go to hell?
is what’s in it for you
oh, hell that’s what’s in it for you
to hell for what’s in it for you
oh, hell is what’s in it for you
for us
