Another crime committed,
Another youth fallen off the right track,
Another life poisoned pitch black,
Another soul stained, unable to turn back
Yet for all of this there equals
One more naive parent too quick to deny
It can't be their own, their child
It's like they can't see the danger in their eyes.
A bad seed can fall anywhere
You've got to nip it in the bud so it doesn't grow,
Let it re-grow fresh and new
So not an ounce of evil can it show.
It's no good to protect it
The shadow gives it food to grow more
You turn your back on it
And they'll do something worse than before.
Why is it when they do wrong
You blame it on a song in the charts?
Don't you see it's the black blood
That flows right through their heart?
The music triggers an idea,
That idea will soon trigger a plan,
That plan will trigger the motivation
That pulls the trigger in their hand.
They can easily block it out
Just as easy as they can take it in
It's completely their decision
To choose to drown in an ocean of sin
Yet you act as if you don't know
When the truth is placed before your eyes
You end up a candy addicted fool
Who keeps on devouring their lies.

|Yep. The blame lies in several places, but often it is parents who cannot be asked to do the parenting at which the biggest blame can be laid ... by not providing the role models that the children need. Excellent thought-provoking write Keighley|

|they were blaming the music in my generation too, sex, drugs and rock n roll were at fault for everything when actually the three are exclusive of one another|
