Metal Band’s New Song Attacks Baby Boomers As Sociopathic Narcissists

0

Metal band The Offering have released a new song, “Flower Children,” which directly confronts the baby boomer generation that has wielded overwhelming political power for decades, calling them a “generation of sociopathic narcissists.” And they hope baby boomers will be offended by it.

The track comes off See the elephantThe Offer’s second full-length album out November 4 on Century Media and follows previously released songs “WASP” and “Tiny Disappointments.”

This is a band that stylistically is a challenge to neatly package under any pre-established sub-genre label, which is certainly a good thing for any artist. The offering has progressive sensibilities, moving from shimmering, clean passages to more aggressive, heavy parts, each accentuated by clean or harsh vocals – but not in the way of metalcore.

As for the message behind this latest single, the state of the offering, “‘Flower Children’ is a statement of mistrust and loathing for an entire generation of sociopathic narcissists. Art, Literature, Economics , politics and the problems of America’s culture war – all resolved with the coming to power of a new generation. Inspired by Bruce Cannon Gibney A Generation of Sociopaths: How Baby Boomers Betrayed America, ‘Flower Children’ echoes his thesis – condemning the mentally deficient characteristics of an aging generation and the irrationality of their longevity in power. Undeniably, the systemic functioning of the country would be better off without their rusty grip. I hope this song will strike their delicate sensibility. And if so… Good riddance!”

The Offering, “Flower Children” Lyrics

We want baby boomers dead.
Sorry mom,
We want baby boomers dead.
Sorry dad,
We want baby boomers dead.
Dead.

How to compromise with sadists?
Dodging, divorced, loveless.
Greedy for money.
Obsessed.
work work work

What a wasted life.
Television has brought you goods.
You sold rock ‘n’ roll for red ties.

We want baby boomers dead.
Sorry mom,
We want baby boomers dead.
Sorry dad,
We want baby boomers dead.
Dead.

You hippies all turned into Christians
Free love in incest,
LSD to dissent.
Take,
Until the ice caps melt.
Children’s formula,
Fear the belt.
We grew up,
I found your opinions to be wrong.
Party all night when the parent is gone.

Dead.
Sorry mom,
We want baby boomers dead.
Sorry dad,
We want baby boomers dead.
Dead.

You are offended.
Flower children get what they want anyway.
Infanticide;
You violated.
Lead your children to hatred.
Fragmentation is part of your heritage.
What does your mood ring say?

Failure of your parents,
Failure of your cities,
Impossible to know when you are canceled for your choices.
stranded in war,
Failure of your planet,
Failure of your children crying for some changes.
Dripping on me and
Pledge your death,
And set us free and leave us to ourselves.

Failure of your parents,
Failure of your cities,
Impossible to know when you are canceled for your choices.
stranded in war,
Failure of your planet,
Your kids didn’t cry for change.

Battle hymns will sound until the leather is cooked.
fight the world,
And justice for all you’ve done.
Destructive,
Appetite for destruction,
Stay hungry.
We’re not going to take it.
Recycle the same riffs,
The same atmosphere
We hate it.
We will stay strong

Pass the torch.

Do not say,
that without you we are nothing,
Your content sucked.
Do not say,
It’s not greed.
That you make headlines like in the good old days,
Your hairline is a hate crime.
What does your mood ring say?

We want baby boomers dead.
Sorry mom,
We want baby boomers dead.
Sorry dad,
We want baby boomers dead.
Dead.
