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
