Stop That It Hurts

We were asked to write a song on the subject of vivisection by a scientist formerly practising on animals who is now an advocate of animal welfare.

I was informed of a heartbreaking story about two monkeys caged side by side in a laboratory. When one of the monkeys was taken away for surgery and did not return, the remaining monkey was so distressed that it ripped out chunks of its fur and was inconsolable.

Vivisection is intolerable violence towards animals, surgery without consent.

I wanted to convey a conversation between a dog and a monkey in a laboratory. I imagined them chattering between themselves in their cages, each dreaming of what they would do when they got out...alive.

Quote - 'Vivisection is a social evil because if it advances human knowledge, it does so at the expense of human character' George Bernard Shaw
(narrated by Paul)

Stop That It Hurts

When I get out alive I'm gonna climb in trees

N' swing from branches like an eagle flies

When I get out alive...

When I get out alive, gonna run like the wind

N' show my master that I love him

When I get out alive...

When I get out alive I'm gonna eat my food

Without a stomach tube

Oh when I get out alive...

Oh stop that it hurts

You're squeezing me

That thing that you did

It's hurting me

Oh stop it I want my body back

Oh help me...

I watch through the bars

They gave me these scars

They hit me I cry

And I still cry...

Can't help if I bite, I live fear to fight

I long to know peace of eternal light

And I've tried being nice and I've tried being good

I'd just close my eyes and die if I could...

Oh stop that it hurts

You're squeezing me

That thing that you did

It's hurting me,

Oh stop it I want my body back

Oh help me...

Millions of animals die in laboratories every year - too many to count, they are found throughout the world known only by numbers, they are more wretched than humans can ever be, for they don't even have the ability to understand their fate. Their only release is death.

'Vivisection is a social evil because if it advances human knowledge, it does so at the expense of human character'

Oh stop that it hurts

You're squeezing me

That thing that you did

It's hurting me,

Oh stop it I want my body back

Oh help me...

Oh stop that it hurts

You're squeezing me

That thing that you do

It's killing me

Oh stop it I want my mum and dad

Oh help me,

Oh... Why don't you help me?

Oh you tame us you break us, you shame us you hate us

You do things unseen with our pain in between

And all for the blood of a corporate greed

And we bleed and we bleed and we bleed

We bleed unseen, oh, we bleed unseen

Oh, unseen, yeah we bleed unseen

Yeah why don't you help us help us help us help us help us?

Yeah we bleed unseen...
