Written for victims of teenage violence {the stabber and the stabbed are all victims of our adult pact}

All for just teenagers

We complain about teenage violence
And teach them to be violent in games
We are amazed by bullying violence
And we show them violent heroes in films
We preach and talk down their violence
And we play and talk and write violence

Why are we planting hate in their hearts?
Is this all for material things we die to leave?
Why are we destroying their innocence to live?
Just to continue the hell we're created to live

Now they walk around with deadly weapons
Acting like the deadly heroes created upon
Stabbing, shooting & striking like dirty heroes
The violent teenagers are victims of our pacts
This is the time to start playing good love acts
Time to take violence off the radio and screens
And stop making dirty money to live short lives
And start teaching them that violence is not cute
