Donny Goines – We are the same Lyrics

If I had a voice,
I’d speak for us all
So you can understand
All the lives we lost,
All the pain I felt.
They locked me in a cage,
Tie ropes around my neck
Feed me once a day
Took away my babies
We can never bond.
I won’t see them again,
They did nobody harm
I wonder why this happens
My brother pulls a carriage
My sister’s just a breeder
Don’t know the joys of marriage.
Took me away from home,
I don’t belong here
I am now a slave,
My heart is full of fear.
The owner chose to brand me
Destroyed my family
Everyday is torture,
Can’t you understand me?
No, this isn’t fair!
You know this isn’t fair!
And if I attack you
It’s only ‘cos I’m scared

PRE-CHORUS:
But it doesn’t matter,
You can’t hear my voice
Maybe if I did,
You would make a better choice!

CHORUS:
We are not so different
No, I am just like you.
We are not so different
So why would you be cruel?
We are not so different
Just look inside my eyes
We are not so different
There’s no difference,
We are the same.

You killed my ancestors
Now, we almost gone
Use our skin for clothing
Now what keeps us warm
Conduct experiments
And that’s a sad fact
I don’t wanna be a guinea pig or lab rat
Keep me in the parks
But there’s no amusement
Lock me in the zoos
Constrain my movements
Make us fight each other
Train us to be vicious
And when we’re hurt
Find somebody in the pound to kill us
You hunt my friends down
Commit murder.
Steal my eggs before they hatch
Fry ’em on the burner
Slaughter me for meat
So you can have a hamburger?
Break my ribs apart for dinner
And you still hurt us.
Why can’t we coexist?
Why can’t we live in peace?
My life is not important,
What if I could speak?

PRE-CHORUS
But it doesn’t matter
You can’t hear my voice
Maybe if you did,
You would make a better choice!

CHORUS:
We are not so different
No, I am just like you.
We are not so different
So why would you be cruel?
We are not so different
Just look inside my eyes
We are not so different
There’s no difference,
We are the same.

It’s hard to speak for those who can’t speak.
I wonder sometimes, do people really think about their actions?
Do they truly see the pain they cause?
I shed a tear for all of you,
We all feel pain, we all cry
We all love, we all have families
We look into their eyes,
Because we are the same.

CHORUS:
We are not so different
No, I am just like you.
We are not so different
So why would you be cruel?
We are not so different
Just look inside my eyes
We are not so different
There’s no difference,
We are the same.

    This song was actually created for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).

    Dony Goines has adopted the vegan lifestyle and by his music he’s trying to make people think about their actions and, so, bring a change!

    How amazing is that?!

    Standing up and out for something you truly believe in is always going to worth my respect and deep appreciation.

    Let’s make him POP!
