From the recording "Life's Rear View Mirror"
Enchanted by Violence talks about humanity's fascination with violence from the sports on the field to the fans in the stands.
"Enchanted By Violence"
(Lyrics: M. Sass, M. Novak - Music: Mark Novak)
Are we in this nation enchanted with violence
Do we knowingly support it with a voice of silence
From the sports on the field to the fans in the stands
You could easily die from a strangers hand
The alleged law of the land puts a gun in all hands.
Who is this militia that protects the Fatherland
Guns in church, guns in schools do guns define the golden rule
You pretend they make you safe but you’re a fool
Enchanted by violence - it’s in video games
Enchanted by violence - urged to call names
Enchanted by violence - it’s not fake news
Enchanted by violence - social media reflects our violent views
When the leader says ”Get him, I’ll pay for your defense”
Some people take him at his word and violence will commence
Leaders escape consequence but the common men will pay
How can those in power keep on leading us astray
Will we ever have our fill of using violence and force
Is there a way to change our current course
Can we come together in a positive way
It’s hard to fight the violent urge it’s in our DNA
