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 »

I had a friend, who kept a candle in his pocket,
He used to touch it when the wind was blowing high,
I guess it mad him feel like he could buck the system 
And when it flickered out we laid him down to die,

Turn on the light, 
Turn on a million blinding brilliant white
Incendiary lights, 
A beacon in the night,
I'll burn relentlessly until my juice runs dry, 

I'll construct a rock of tempered beams and trusses 
And equip it with a million tiny suns, 
I'll install upon the roof on my compartment
And place tinfoil on my floor and on my walls

Turn on the light, 
Turn on a million blinding brilliant white
Incendiary lights, 
A beacon in the night,
I'll burn relentlessly until my juice runs dry, 

And I'll burn like a roman fucking
Candle, like a chasm in the night, for a minuscule duration, 
Ecstatic immolation, incorrigible delight
