Industrial chook locked in a cage, cooped up so long, gets filled with rage It bulges her eyes, it sharpens her beak, it floods her brain, it makes her weak Now delirious power drips in her eyes, she's a beast maximised, beak in the sky With alien intelligence she brings the pain, this injustice has mutated her DNA Industrial chook locked in a cage Cooped up so long was filled with rage Woke up one day and went berserk Her war cry: "bok bok bok bergerk!" The mutation travels through her cells, expressing the rage she felt in her cell There's no punches pulled, no victim spared, the warpath is littered with feathers and hair Humanity failed her, took her babies away, broke her beak and her wings, locked her up in a cage Now humans are the ones that are out for the picking cos Industrial Chook is now a free range chicken
