Walking Contradiction.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Walking Contradiction Now I know how parents may feel when their teenage kids are playing there depressing and gothic music at full blast at the middle of the night. It's clear that most people's opinions are that the lyrics featured in these gothic or metal bands are usually to do with some sort of bad language, death and violence. A feature most predominantly in many of Marilyn Manson's songs. A quote reveals how people judge him for every circumstance "when a dude's getting bullied and shoots up the school and they blame it on Marilyn, and the heroin" This reveals people's attitude towards this individual.

But with all this said hate and love have been with us from the beginning of time, and they will continue to be with us until the end.
