Animal Matters is a weekly program on KZFR 90.1 in Chico that focuses on how human behavior impacts animals, including choices we make about our food, the products we buy, and our financial investments. The format of the show includes commentary from your host, Sarah Downs, as well as information on how you can help.

Song Lyrics -Laura Nyro – Lite A Flame (The Animal Rights Song)

In the zoo
They gave him a cage
Circus put a sparkle
On his face
Away from life
The elephant walks
Shadow across a dream
Lost for ivory
Oh freedom
Lite a flame
It’s like prejudice
For the color of your skin
Prejudice for a woman
Prejudice for an animal
Like the elephant of the plain
Masai moon
In the morningrise
Africa –
The world comes alive
A matriarch
Leads the tribe
To the sweet water
The cool feelin’
And the way to survive
Oh freedom
Lite a flame
It’s like prejudice
For the color of your skin
Prejudice for a woman
Prejudice for an animal
Like the elephant of the plain
Of the plain
For greed not need
Societies sleep
Lead the killing hand on
Young ones full of spark
A wave of birds across the park
Kids climbing
Sliding, riding free
Elephant child hiding
Behind a tree
Prejudice
For an animal
Like the elephant of the plain
