Let Them Go and Break on Through to the Vegan Side

I just had two ideas for popular songs for which I could write alternate veganism promoting lyrics. These are works in progress, so feel free to comment and suggest changes to the lyrics while I try to get myself to record them.

One idea is alternate lyrics for the song Let It Go from the film Frozen called Let Them Go.

The second idea is alternate lyrics for the song Break on Through to the Other Side by The Doors.

Let Them Go
Lyrics by Ruth “Ruthless” Peleg

The eggs glow white in the factory farm
Not a male chick to be seen
For they’re considered useless
So they get sent to machines
So many creatures living all their lives inside
with no room to move until the day they die

Some other way, there has to be
If we found it we could set them all free
So many people do not know
Well, now they know

Let them go
Let them go
Don’t keep them caged anymore
Let them go
Let them go
Don’t buy milk and meat no more
I don’t care how good it tastes
Let their lives go on
Even if they’re not human anyway

I was locked in cognitive dissonance
It once kept me thinking small
Now the fear of not enough protein
can’t get to me at all

It’s time to see what we can do
to help them get out and break through
No right, no wrong’s a fallacy
Let’s set them free

Let them go
Let them go
Let them see a clear blue sky
Let them go
Let them go
Let them live a life outside
Make a stand, let’s change our ways
Let their lives go on

Our power lets us drive these factories to the ground
If we collectively ate beans and brown rice all around
With mushrooms, veggies, nuts and fruit we’ll have a blast
I’m never going back, the meat is in my past

Let them go
Let them go
Keeping them enslaved is wrong
Let them go
Let them go
Let them see a brand new dawn
Make a stand, for death don’t pay
Let their lives go on
Even if they’re not human anyway

Break on Through to the Vegan Side
Lyrics by Ruth “Ruthless” Peleg

They live their whole lives in a cage
Slaughtered day by day
They try to run
They try to hide
Break on through to the vegan side

She got raped to steal her milk
and they took her calf away
She can still recall
and still she cries
Break on through to the vegan side

Everybody loves to eat my flesh
Everybody loves to drink my milk
Drink it! Eat it!
Drink it! Eat it!

You know the chicks that aren’t male
They’re all ground up alive
They said it’s free range
But it’s all lies!
Break on through to the vegan side

Not Just Lettuce Eating Vegans

I finally got off my lazy ass and recorded a song! 🙂 This one is a cover of the original teenage mutant ninja turtles theme, but with alternate veganism promoting lyrics that I wrote. The clip includes subtitles in English and in Hebrew, you need to click the CC/subtitles button to enable them. I hope you enjoy it and if you did, like and share it!

Not Just Lettuce Eating Vegans – lyrics by Ruth “Ruthless” Peleg

not just lettuce eating vegans
not just lettuce eating vegans
not just lettuce eating vegans
heroes eating plant food… potato power!

They’re the ones who don’t have any meat
Neither dairy, honey, nor fish do they eat
They eat beans, grains, veggies and fruit
and nuts and seeds and mushrooms too

not just lettuce eating vegans
not just lettuce eating vegans

to animals they know not to be mean
they’re the only group on average that is lean
and the animal industry
they don’t support with their money

not just lettuce eating vegans
not just soy food eating vegans
not just lettuce eating vegans

heroes eating plant food… potato power!
