Description

Insane? A slave too long? #Blackfish Tilikum goes berserk (listen to what's said off-camera). This song is for Tilly, Dawn Brancheau, and all captive Orca whales. Lyrics and chords: My body's broke, my mind is gone, my soul has left this cement pond You took me from my momma G A and flew me to your world D G to be your slave and superstar D G now my proud straight fin is curled Em A7 You pulled me from my ocean And locked me in a pool Far from my home and family Far from your Golden Rule A7 A7 My body's broke, my mind is gone D A my soul has left this cement pond D A7 You took a son from his mom D Em And called him Tilikum A7 D A7 You tell them I love my trainers You say I'm happy and healthy You pretend I'm lucky to be here And your fantasy makes you wealthy The humans come to watch me do tricks for my meal A circus clown they can see But can they know how I feel? A7 A7 My body's broke, my mind is gone D A my soul has left this cement pond D A7 You took your boy from his home D Em And called him your own A7 D Tilikum Unchained. Copyright 2014 John Lopker.

Hats off to the following musicians who have refused to perform at SeaWorld, will you cover Tilikum Unchained? Willie Nelson, Barenaked Ladies, Heart, The Beach Boys, Joan Jett, Cheap Trick, Martina McBride, Trisha Yearwood, REO Speedwagon, Trace Adkins, and 38 Special. Should whales be used for human amusement? What do you think? Whales are the "humans of the sea." They are smart, social beings with complex emotions. Orca whales remain in their pod for life, often side-by-side with their mom and siblings. Tilikum ("Tilly") was captured near Iceland in November 1983. He was torn from his family when he was two years old. He currently lives in captivity at SeaWorld Orlando. Kyle Kittleson has made a video expressing his opinion.
