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. All are gone, all but one No contest, nowhere to run No more left, only one This is it, this is the countdown to extinction. 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 "lairs" Man, you were never even there Killed a few feet from the cages Point blank, you're so courageous... So courageous. All are gone, all but one No contest, nowhere to run No more left, only one This is it, this is the countdown to extinction. One hour from now Another species of life form Will disappear off the face of the planet Forever... and the rate is accelerating.
