lyrics

In this world you are perfect beings
beautiful and innocent
Like us you deserve to be happy
Regardless of your intelligence

Who are we to think we can decide who will live and who will die
We're supposed to be the clever ones, why don't we show it
and spare their lives

Stop, look in their eyes and you will see
what they 're made of, their sentience, their purity
Creatures great and small, God made them all

Some men in the name of money
trade off their compassion
believe in their superiority
and species discrimination

Why should we make them suffer to supplement our dinner
Their last sight is a man with a knife, when it could be
A hug and a smile

Stop, look in their eyes and you will see
what they're made of, their sentience, their purity
Creatures great and small, God made them all

Stop, look in their eyes and you will see
what they're made of, same beating heart, feel love and fear
Creatures great and small, God made them all

Stop a minute, look in their eyes and let them see
what you are made of, your compassion, your humanity
Creatures great and small, I love you all
