lyrics

let me tell you my story. maybe it will help you to choose compassion.

when I was born and took the first breath
i was taken away from my mother
i could not understand what happened
it felt as this is the death
my mom screamed and called for me
at this time I did not know
that I’ll never see her again
i will never see her again

if you can hear me, then listen carefully
my name is Ben, not 01708
let me just express one wish to thee
for you its something easyly to create:
a world in which all earthlings get a chance
for a better life and run free.

they put me in a stable to many others
they left us alone. Some of us where crying
we where trembling from fear and cold
don´t you have mercy on me and my brothers?
we all wondered why this has had to happen?
why are you doing this to us?
because it hurts so bad.
because it hurts so bad.

if you can hear me, then listen carefully
my name is Ben, not 01708
let me just express one wish to thee
for you its something easyly to create:
a world in which all earthlings get a chance
for a better life and run free.

and when my time has come and they lead me to the slaughter
i closed my eyes and waited for death
at least I was humbled by the hangman's laughter
i thought now I take my last breath
only a strange woman could hear my prayer
as an Angel of light she led me away from the slayer.

this is the truth. this is our story
i‘m only one of a million others
now I live on an animal sanctuary
beside my abused sisters and brothers.
as an unwanted by-product of cruel diary industry
i got a chance to live and now Now I can run free

if you can hear me, then listen carefully
my name is Ben, not 01708
let me just express one wish to thee
for you its something easyly to create:
a world in which all earthlings get a chance
for a better life and run free
