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 »

Come let us make bricks and burn them hard
We'll build a city
With a tower for the world
And climb so we can reach
Anything we may propose
Anything at all

Build me up, tear me down
Like a skyscraper
Build me up
Then tear down these joining walls
So they can't climb at all

I know why
You tore it down that day
You thought, that if you got caught we'd all go away
Like a spoiled little baby
Who can't come out and play
You had your revenge

Build me up, tear me down
Like a skyscraper
Build me up
Then tear down these joining walls
So they can't climb at all

Well, madness reigned and paradise drowned
When Babel's walls came crashing down
Now the echoes roar for a story writ
That was hardly understood
And never any good

Build me up, tear me down
Like a skyscraper
Build me up
Then tear down these joining walls
So they can't climb at all

Build me up
Build me up
