BAD RELIGION
THE DISSENT OF MAN
2010

THE DAY THE EARTH STALLED
(Greg Graffin)
Do you remember when we were young, adventure had no end?
Those were the days my friend. But I’m not talking about that at all.
Do you remember when you marred my future with a sickly parasitic pall?
That was the day that the earth stalled.
That was the day the earth stalled.
That was the day the earth stalled.

Friction, bonds, and gravity, all harmonic motion ceased.
Life itself could not maintain from that singularity.
Try to withstand a magnetic storm with no one to keep you warm.
Waiting for the rest to fall, since the day that the earth stalled.

That was the day the earth stalled.
Since the day that the earth stalled.
On that day that the earth stalled.
That was the day the earth stalled.
On that day that the earth stalled.


ONLY RAIN
(Brett Gurewitz)
Hey scientist please save us from our rainy days
because your counterpart in the magic art is manufacturing judgment day
there's a fell wind blowing out of the east
bringing famine drought and plague
well now at least that's what they say

Rain fell like judgment
across my windowpane
said it fell like judgment
But it was only rain

well I know what's wrong and I know what's right
and I know that evil exists sure as day turns into night
when a man gets down on his knees to pray you know he'll find what he is able
but chances are he'll find it either way

Rain fell like judgment
across my windowpane
said it fell like judgment
But it was only rain

oh lord have mercy on a humble man
lost in the wilderness without a guiding hand

Rain fell like judgment
across my windowpane
said it fell like judgment

But it was only rain
Rain fell like judgment
across my windowpane
said it fell like judgment
But it was only rain


THE RESIST STANCE
(Greg Graffin)
Seeds of rebellion lay outside your front door
If you nourish them and water them they'll grow into a healthy what for?
And if revolution isn't what's in store
How can you care anymore?

It's a dangerous slip,
a conscientious shift
In the spirit of resistance you gotta hold your grip
Lest the state of your resolve makes you quickly devolve to a fundamentalist

You're an archetype,
that they can pin to the wall
When you cling to all convictions like a farm animal in its stall
Never thinking of the bigger world outside
As they take you for a ride

It's a dangerous slip,
a conscientious shift
In the spirit of resistance you gotta hold your grip
Because passion unabated can be readily conflated as belligerence

It's a dangerous slip,
a conscientious shift
The spirit of resistance you gotta hold your grip
And the verdict won't be kind 'cuz they're desperate for a viable alternative

Take a stance. The Resist stance.


WON’T SOMEBODY
(Brett Gurewitz)
Won't somebody please come up with something?
'Cause Jesus just don’t seem to be impartially working
And all of the rest are really down in the ratings,
While everyone is right here waiting.

Out in the cold like a bundle of coal,
Little packets of darkness wanting to glow.
Well, there's nobody home
And there's a wreck in the yard
And maybe they're coming back
If we wish really hard.
If we wish real hard...

Now, won't somebody please come up with something?
'Cause Jesus just don't seem to be impartially working
And all of the rest are really down in the ratings,
But everyone is gonna keep on waiting.

Waiting for peace
At the end of our streets,
Back behind our apartments
In our passenger seats.
Just a moment of bliss
Amid all of the waste,
But despair and oblivion
Of our precarious race.
It’s ours to face!

Now, won't somebody please come up with something?
'Cause Jesus just don't seem to be impartially working
And all of the rest are really down in the ratings,
But everyone is still right here waiting.

Now, I know nothing lasts forever,
So we might as well wish for a goddamn fix
Of this toxic changing weather.

Won’t somebody please come up with something?
'Cause Jesus just don’t seem to be impartially working
And all of the others can barely stay in the running,
But everyone is gonna keep on waiting.

Won’t somebody please come up with something?


THE DEVIL IN STITCHES
(Brett Gurewitz)
Hey angels fall down without warning
Cherry lipstick on their teeth and all dangerous curves
She had a bullet proof mind and big pawn shop eyes
And nothing you could say would get to her

So don't look homeward angel from that rumble seat
I can strum twice and make it all go away
We'll tap every last drop until that beating stops
And let the devil come join us dancing

Across the yellow sun
We'll run
Because the devil in stitches only has his fun
Performing for the chosen one
We can run

She was living on the edge of a knife
His head was filled with restless ghosts
It's so easy to love a bringer of destruction
She said darling “I love you madly”

Black tear stained cheeks behind her shattered window
Prayin' for a song to save her life
I had a paperback crime running straight down my spine
And let the devil come join us dancing

Across the yellow sun
We'll run
while devil in stitches goes and has his fun
Performing for the chosen one
We can run

Wild in the street like a formal procession of love and deceit
I will carry you home like a bride from the wreckage
Here's your punch drunk cupid knocked clean out of his senses

I know he drove her out to the brink
That's where they stood and looked down
Right then he made a decision
That's where they made a division
Declaring war on the weather

A reckless pact with forever
So come on and sing
Sing hallelujah
Right now


PAPA AND THE PALLOR
(Greg Graffin)
Papa had a wife and kids he kept them on a leash and he bid them all to do his every deed.
When he was a kid he was treated just the same so he hid his feelings from the family.
Lost as an island out at sea, resistant to the gentle waves of empathy.

Papa and his family always on parade. Tearing through the turnstiles, a weekender’s charade. But time will tell, as their world crumbles to hell.
What they created was a family story no one will tell. It’s a photo album too terrible. But the pride and the pallor continue to swell. And the matron silently prays.

Junior resented the tradition they upheld and it ate him up inside most every day.
Silence was golden and they kept him to his word. So bewildered when he finally ran away.
Oh, obligations never cease. Oblivious of the ways to give his soul some peace.

Yeah, Papa and his family always on parade. Passing through the turnstiles, a weekender’s charade. But time will tell, as their world crumbles to hell.
What they created was a family story no one will tell. It’s a photo album too terrible. But the pride and the pallor continue to swell. And the matron silently prays.

“Get me out of here, someone’s got to save the day.” The children are reminded to do it for the daddy’s sake. And happiness is ever so far, far away.

Yeah, lost as an island out at sea. Oblivious to the gentle waves of empathy.
Papa and his family always on parade. Tearing through the turnstiles, a weekender’s charade.
It’s just a sick calamity that fatherhood made, but time will tell, as their world crumbles to hell.
What they created was a family story no one will tell. It’s a photo album too terrible. Still, the pride and the pallor continue to swell as the matron silently prays.


WRONG WAY KIDS
(Brett Gurewitz)
Stop them from shimmering away
on blank sidewalk glittering asphalt somewhere summer days
the wrong way kids were something more than friends
navigating a sprawl without end

Did you ever want to take bad advice
did you ever want to go and take it twice
do you remember when the world began to put up its thorny fence
right you are my friend
so what’s wrong with them
there go the wrong way kids

singing whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh ohhhh

singing whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh ohhhh

whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh ohhhh
and they call them the wrong way kids

The kids today are gone away petitioning the dust
with nobody to look up to because they're looking up to us
just misfit melancholy dregs gone lost in the mall
wanderers to nowhere at all

Did you ever want to take bad advice
did you ever want to go and take it twice
do you remember when the world began to put up its thorny fence
right you are my friend
so what’s wrong with them
there go the wrong way kids

singing whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh ohhhh

singing whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh ohhhh

whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh ohhhh
and they call them the wrong way kids


MEETING OF THE MINDS
(Greg Graffin)
In 325, the Council devised a set of sacred testaments, transparent and wise. The truth is only ever relied on that which we agree and abide.
At the meeting of the minds. Reading of the times. Open the blinds. To our complicated lives.
We all need some kind of creed to lead us to light.

In old Tennessee, the last century. All scopes were fixed on legal tricks and whether or not we should teach kids natural philosophy, despite uncomfortable verity.
At the meeting of the minds. Reading of the times. Open the blinds. To our complicated lives.
We all need some kind of creed to lead us to light.

There's a beacon that shines in the night, a dark pitch though it may be. And the halcyon fields of opportunity turn out to be consensual and arbitrary.

Today on my ride I witnessed a guy complaining about how a so-and-so had lied. No longer will the market decide what the government should provide.
At the meeting of the minds. Sign of the times. Open the blinds. To our complicated lives. We all need some kind of creed to lead us to light.


SOMEONE TO BELIEVE
(Greg Graffin)
Dark, frozen, hibernation held at bay as your mind, left behind, lost another day.
But finally there's someone to believe.
Anti-social boredom is all the rage but the time comes when you gotta turn the page and then finally there's someone to believe.
And there's no call to sell your soul or confess or drop down to your knees.

Who, what, or where made you change your mind? Doesn’t matter anymore 'cuz you’ve seen a sign. And now finally there's someone to believe.
Searching for the answer's a lonely quest but the act is liable to bring out your best. And then finally there's someone to believe.
And you find out the baggage that you discarded, you didn't even need.

No one can deny a return to form irrespective of the morass, shame, and scorn. But then finally there's someone to believe.
Ready to emerge and direct your fate as the self-determination radiates because finally there’s someone to believe.
And it feels like the spring equinox after a long winter's sleep.

Finally, there's someone to believe.


AVALON
(Greg Graffin)
As the sun comes creeping up the mountain
and the wind blows over from the sea.
Hey, we’re brought into this land like tiny particles of sand,
unsure of who we’re smarter than, or what we’re meant to be.
Oh the grains sift coarsely through the hour glass
and collect like their victims in the bowl.
The ungodly force of change erodes all sense of earthly gains.
While tending to the mundane will terrorize your soul.

And it’s no! It’s no use thinking that you’re wrong.
The past is old and gone.
It’s best to move along and find your Avalon.

Well, I wish that I could tell you it was easy,
just take the paved road right to paradise.
But the truth is my friend, the pain and suffering never ends.
Make amends with medicine, amnesia, and lies.
The grains sift coarsely through the hour glass
and they pound like boulders on the brain.
All those things you did for fun, never hurting anyone,
careless shadows in the sun, just empty and lame.

And it’s no... it’s no use thinking that you’re wrong.
The past is old and gone.
It’s best to move along and find your Avalon.

So now the day races from the twilight.
How the fields are enveloped by the shade.
And the story that you’ll tell, inventory of your well,
crack the shell and find the mortar silted and decayed.

And it’s no! It’s no use thinking that you’re wrong.
The past is dead and gone.
It’s best to move along and find your Avalon.
It’s best to hurry on and find your Avalon.


CYANIDE
(Brett Gurewitz)
well let me bend your ear
because I'm never really there
when shadows turns to light
and hope into despair

there was an only one
but the broody skies above
brought down a shameful stain
and not a single drop of cleaning rain

let me say
oh oh well there's no place left to hide
oh oh from the loneliness inside
the road to you is paved right through with bloody good intentions
and missin' you is like kissin'

Cyanide

Well in this world of things
one of them is lost
I've been it in my dreams
but not without a cost

down a lonely street
it was our destiny to meet
nobody asked you twice
we found purchase then with no requite - nothing nice

oh oh well there's no place left to hide
oh oh from the loneliness inside
the road to you is paved right through with bloody good intentions
and missin' you is like kissin'
Cyanide

Would you believe in something good that's so wrong
and have you worshiped our invention
I've paid my debt in coin and sweat with trifling hesitation
because the road to you is paved with good intentions

oh oh well there's no place left to hide
oh oh from the loneliness inside
the road to you is paved right through with bloody good intentions

and missin' you is like kissin'
Cyanide
Cyanide
Cyanide
Cyanide
Cyanide
Cyanide
Cyanide
Cyanide


TURN YOUR BACK ON ME
(Brett Gurewitz)
I've been searching for so long
now the search party is gone
won't somebody tell me what the hell went wrong
we started out so strong

I never wanted to hurt you
I didn't plan to desert you
I couldn't possibly express how much I care
So turn your back on me

Come on turn your back on me
To survive turn your back on me
we're the same as far as I can see
so come on turn your back on me

If I could I would stand outside myself
And pretend that I was looking back at somebody else
If I could do it again would I merely defend it all to the end?
or do the ends justify themselves?

I never wanted to hurt you
I didn't plan to desert you
I couldn't possibly express how much I care
So turn your back on me

Come on turn your back on me
To survive turn your back on me
we're the same as far as I can see
so come on turn your back on me


AD HOMINEM
(Greg Graffin)
See all people in Afghanistan praying to the gods and living in the sand.
Somebody’s gonna have to set them free, nobody hears the call or command.
But it’s a long way to Harlem, and a long stretch to the king of Siam.
And if you don’t have a penny, why should I give a damn?

Ad Hominem. You think you’re better than I am?
Ad Hominem. You think you’re better than I am.

See all the suckers in the handout line living on scraps and they don’t have a dime.
Waiting for endless charity devoid of any sense of posterity.
Well there’s no Great Depression and there’s no Great Society.
And only few go to heaven, all the rest are damned and free.

Ad Hominem. You think you’re better than I am?
Ad Hominem. You think you’re better than I am.

I’m just a soft-cover version of a much harder tale.
A walking resemblance of ruts in the trail.
Is it possible to divide your ideas and beliefs. Ideas and beliefs.
Ideas and beliefs from the people that you don’t like?

Ad Hominem. You think you’re better than I am?
Ad Hominem. You think you’re better than I am.


WHERE THE FUN IS
(Brett Gurewitz)
smacked back tarmac stars are scars of fame
in the place where no one knows me by my name

where tar pit drips its drilled out vein
and fashion trips on tangled skein
If you need to slake that aching in your brain

This is where the fun is
this is where the fun is

In the shadow of the valley
where the nights are warm
we will fear no evil
when we get things done

tap in - into the vain
we'll road trip & raise Cain
down on the nickel
with a flame in the rain

This is where the fun is
This is where the fun is
This is where the fun is
This is where the fun is

so jump in - into the frame
we're laughin' to hide the pain
it's not a riddle we're all a little, a little amazed

This is where the fun is
This is where the fun is
This is where the fun is
This is where the fun is


I WON’T SAY ANYTHING
(Brett Gurewitz)
He looked just like a zookeeper in a human zoo
so I said hey man how the hell did they get to you
don't you know us animals need something to do
then I flew
that's when he said

hey, I can't deny it, but I won't say anything
hey, I can't deny it, but I won't say anything
hey, I can't deny it, but I won’t say anything
unless you ask it right

I took my mean machine to the sacramental post
some kid had spilled his wine on the holiest host
and I said ain’t it funny that machines need a ghost
he made a toast
that's when he said

hey, I can't deny it, but I won't say anything
hey, I can't deny it, but I won't say anything
hey, I can't deny it, but I won’t say anything
unless you ask it right

riding to the cemetery in a righteous limousine
I plied the grim proprietor with milk and tangerines
and I said so you're short but are you brutish and mean
then he screamed
that's when he said

hey, I can't deny it, but I won't say anything
hey, I can't deny it, but I won't say anything
hey, I can't deny it, but I won’t say anything
unless you ask it right


FINITE
(just at Japanese bonus track & Digital download)
in a quantity of light
you can search for all of your life
but it's finite

from a sudden burst of sound
the recoil may never be found
it is finite

on and on, on and on
but impervious to calculation
on and on
it's impervious to calculation

woah, just how far it goes
nobody knows

in the peaceful warm embrace
the intention shows on your face
but it's finite

from the hate that spurs us on
to the meek and gullible pawn
it is finite
on and on, on and on
it's impervious to calculation
on and on
but impervious to calculation
woah just how far it goes

where the lightning sparked a flash
when precisely did it pass
all delusions went away
as with all the shades of gray
now i'm left with faulty tools
and a hazy set of rules
and brand new day

in the turbulent conscious stream
the unbearable lightness of being
it is finite
from the universal mass
constant matters coming to pass
it is finite

on and on, on and on
but impervious to calculation
on and on
it's impervious to calculation

woah, just how far it goes
nobody knows
no one knows
woah, no one knows
no one knows
