Bad Religion

Bad Religion is a punk rock band that formed in Los Angeles in 1979. The band makes extensive use of soaring 3-part vocal harmonies (which they refer to in their album liner notes as the "oozin' aahs"), guitar solos and intellectual lyrics that often contain political or religious commentary. Their lyrics often relate to matters of social responsibility. The band's lineup has changed several times over its lifespan, with lead vocalist Greg Graffin being the only consistent member; the current lineup, however, features three out of four of the band's original members (Graffin, Brett Gurewitz and Jay Bentley). more »

As I walk along this road paved with human kindness
I can never forget the price you've paid
I'm an actor on a role, an artificial virus
I'm your daddy, I'm your disgrace

I say, "Kid just move along we don't want it, don't need it
Your politics just breed despair"
I salute an empty flag of ancient tribalism and trust me nobody cares

For I am your candidate
I am bloody lips and makeup
I'm your caliphate, opioids and mutilation
A celebrity and my name is competition
I've come to bear your pain (bear your pain) and I can make it go away
I'll make it go away, I'll make it go away (ay, ay, ay)

Believers, dupes and clowns I want you all to gather 'round
To glorify ignorance and fear
I dispense misinformation to a post-truth generation, my darlings don't shed a tear

For I am your candidate
I am bloody lips and makeup
I'm your caliphate, opioids and mutilation
An hermaphrodite in restrooms and service stations
I truly feel your pain (feel your pain) and I can make it go away
I'll make it go away, I'll make it go away
