Allflaws – Manufactured Violence (Lyrics) Written By Gabriel Curran

They take the violence from a culture,
Then sell it to the masses,
Make aggression the new trend,
For the young to consume,
Now everyone is walking it,
And everyone is talking it,
You can hear the devil speaking through the
Mouths of the ignorant,
Coz dumb is now the new cool,
Dumb is now the new school,
Killing intellect, dis-empowering the mind,
It’s the doom generation,
Of violence and hatred,
It’s the feral generation,
Of the 51st state.

Come and buy some violence, the depression of a culture is sold to the
masses,
Come and buy some violence, the aggression of a culture is sold as a trend,
Manufactured violence, they glorify the ghetto then sell it as a way to
live,
Come and buy some violence, the depravity of a culture is sold as a
product.

Violence,
Masculinity,
Thug mentality,
Selling as a trend,
To the young.
Violence,
Masculinity,
Street mentality,
Selling as a trend,
To the young.

Copycats and counterfeits,
Cliches, street talk,
Accents and ghetto slang,
Homogenized language,
Juvenile delinquents,
Are talking borrowed lingo,
With Superficial syntax,
And urban dialectics,
Monotone clones,
Spreading across the nation,
Spawned from the bowls,
Of Americanization.

Ghetto is a fashion,
A white commodity,
Ghetto makes a profit,
For the corporate machine,
Aggression makes a man,
That’s what we’re told,
Aggression makes a man,
That’s what we’re sold.

Violence,
Masculinity,
Thug mentality,
Selling as a trend,
To the young.
Violence,
Masculinity,
Street mentality,
Selling as a trend,
To the young.

Come and buy some violence, the depression of a culture is sold to the
masses,
Come and buy some violence, the aggression of a culture is sold as a trend,
Manufactured violence, they glorify the ghetto then sell it as a way to
live,
Come and buy some violence, the depravity of a culture is sold as a
product,
Manufactured violence, societies regression consumed like a fashion,
Come and buy some violence, hyper masculinity sold as a style.

Poverty tourists,
Gentrifying Babylon,
Poverty tourists,
Tell me where you are really from?

Tell me where you’re really from?
Poverty tourists,
Tell me where you’re really from?
Rude boys,
Tell me where you’re really from?
Baseball caps and trainers,
Tell me where you’re really from?

Come and buy some violence, the depression of a culture is sold to the
masses,
Come and buy some violence, the aggression of a culture is sold as a trend,
Manufactured violence, they glorify the ghetto then sell it as a way to
live,
Come and buy some violence, the depravity of a culture is sold as a
product,
Manufactured violence, societies regression consumed like a fashion,
Come and buy some violence, hyper masculinity sold as a style.

Violence,
Masculinity,
Thug mentality,
Selling as a trend,
To the young.
Violence,
Masculinity,
Street mentality,
Selling as a trend,
To the young.
