Tower of Power - Can't Stand To See The Slaughter

English

Can't Stand To See The Slaughter

Chorus
I can’t stand to see the slaughter
but still I eat the meat
I can’t stand dishonest people
but still sometimes I cheat
I can’t stand that air pollution
but still I drive a car
Maybe them’s the reasons why
things is like they are
 
It’s a paradox, it’s Pandora’s box
Is it ecology, or the economy?
 
Chorus
 
It’s a true-life drama
It’s a heavy trauma
Is it a matter of need
or just a matter of greed?
 
Chorus
 
Scientific research
with a little bit of help from the church
Maybe there’s a cure
but it’s not for sure
 
Chorus
 
Maybe them’s the reasons why
things is like they are
