Mickey Avalon – Manifesto Lyrics
Our culture, our art, music, books, posters, our clothing, the way we walk and talk, the way our hair grows, the way we smoke dope, and fucking eat, and sleep, is all one message. And that message is, freedom. We are free, mother country maniacs, in charge of our own lives, and we are moving this freedom to the peoples of America, in the ballrooms and teen clubs, in their front rooms watching TV
Or in their bedrooms, playing with themselves or smoking secret dope, in their schools, where we come and we talk to them, and we make our music, in the weird gymnasiums, they love it. We represent the only possible contemporary lifestyle in America, for its kids. And it should be known, that these kids are ready, they're ready to move, but they don't know how. And all we do, is show them, that they can get away with it! Be free god damn it, and forget all those old creeps, is what we tell them. And they can see we mean it. The influence we have, the only thing that touches them, is that we are for real. We are free. We are a bunch of flipped out, arrogant barbarians. And we don't give a damn. For any cop, or phony ass authority, control addict creep, who wants to put us down!
