Violent By Nature (Atrophy)

Morbid fascination instilled within our young Raised and weaned on cold steel, the damage it has brought Little plastic war toys always within reach Replicas of war, what lessons do they teach Minimal control, that's why this land is great Accidental death, the lesson learned too late Escalating tensions sweeping 'cross our land A gun beneath your pillow you fail to understand Images of violence flicker on the screen Taken in by young eyes unsure of what it means Violent heritage echoed in their games Countless shattered lives, no one learns their names Violent by nature Children raised on violence Soon no place to run Setting fights with bullets The nightmare's just begun Staring out the window Your child plays with friends Waving plastic pistols The circle never ends
