 Verse:
 Endangered species, caged in fright,
 Shot in cold blood, no chance to fight,
 The stage is set, now pay the price,
 An ego boost, don't think twice.
 Technology, the battle's unfair,
 You pull the hammer without a care.
 Squeeze the trigger that makes you Man.
 Pseudo-safari, the hunt is canned...
 The hunt is canned

  Verse 2:
 Tell the truth, you wouldn't dare.
 The skin and trophy, oh so rare.
 Silence speaks louder than words.
 Ignore the guilt, and take your turn.
 Liars anagram is "liars,"
 Man you were never even there.
 Killed a few feet from the cages,
 Point blank, your so courageous...
 So corageous.

 (repeat chorus, but without last bar)
