Icons of Filth
The Animal Liberation movement would like to thank Andrew Sewell (aka Stig) who sadly passed away in October 2004. Stig was the vocalist for a anarcho-peace punk band from England called Icons of Filth. From the early 80's up until the time of his death he wrote songs condemning the injustices committed by humanity and he sang many songs protesting the killing of animals.

His lyrics and words came straight from the heart. Icons of Filth did many benefit shows for the animal liberation front, hunt sabs to many other organizations.

Thank you Stig for fighting so passionately and never giving up. You are truly going to be missed. We will continue to fight to make your dreams reality. We'll never give up until the last blade is snapped from the vivisectors lab!
I'm over here in the cage
Take a real good look at my face
I smoked twenty fags today
The pain from the experiment has gone away....
But it'll be back soon & I hope I don't live through it
I hope I'll die
Breathe my last breath
A way out of a fate worse than death
My pain to ease yours
It's a raw deal my rights for your ignorance greed & vanity
But I forgot, curiosity rules
I mean nothing & you just couldn't care
But you don't bloody care & it just ain't fair that I've got screws in my head
Or if I wind up dead
Or if I look pathetic
Or if I'll get an anesthetic
Or if I meow or scream for your cosmetic cream
Or if they swap my heart
Or if I'm torn apart
They torment my brain again & again
Or if they swell up my eyes or increase my size
Or if I'm strapped & trapped to a table or chair
C'mon admit it you just don't care
If they rip me open & just start poking around
For a remedy to an illness which doesn't exist
Or if they start again for something they've missed
I must have rights & I want my share
But if only, if only you'd show us you care
You know I've rights & I want my share
But if only, if only you'd show us you care
'Cos you can't understand my voice
Somehow it always leaves me no choice
I can't expect you to voice my rights
When you don't even voice your own
Because of your ignorance I guess we'll always pay
We fellow beings just hope you'll realise on day
That we've got lots in common
One is that were both downtrodden by the people
Who've got big plans for this nation
You see they even test animals with chemical warfare
Weapons effects & riot control agents & radiation & whilst you're ignoring
There's a big bang coming
Maybe you owe it to yourselves to show us you care
So come on & free us
Free us..... I dare
