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 »

Just to think that not so long ago was a man who risked his life
He challenged all the lies offered as sacred truth just to cast a brighter light

The notion that we can live as one in perfect harmony
Requires a common sensibility to teach an intellectual capacity
That I believe is in the air

But everywhere is the ultimate act of treason
That so few can be aware that their nation's heart is bleeding

But, oh, when the violence has begun
We decree the pen more mighty than the gun
While the fools believe, as one, in this unrepentant age of unreason

Just to think that not so long ago was a man who received the seal
He peddled blatant lies and brought back tyranny to divide his people with zeal

But we can live as one in perfect harmony
It requires a common sensibility to teach an intellectual capacity
That I believe is in the air

But everywhere is the ultimate act of treason
How so few can be aware that their nation's heart is bleeding

But, oh, as a child that prays for fun
With his eye up to the barrel of a  gun
Watching fools believe, as one, in this unrepentant age of unreason
Now the darkness has begun
We decree the pen more mighty than the gun
Watching fools believe, as one, in this unrepentant age of unreason
