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 »

So proud a history, replete with sanctity,
Orbs in their harmony, they sing their code to me,
Have you ever heard yourself, the orbit you are in?
The terse, oppressive blanket that's instilled here by our spin,

It's misery and famine, it's a force we cannot see,
Misery and famine, it compels us naturally,
Misery and famine, great ellipse, we bend to thee,
Misery and famine, just accept your vagrancy,

Others who bear no name, who feel that life's a game,
My verse they will defame, we suffer all the same,
They pay no regard to their position or their speed,
But the firmament still covers them with its malevolent seed,

It's misery and famine, it's a force we cannot see,
Misery and famine, it compels us naturally,
Misery and famine, great ellipse, we bend to thee,
Misery and famine, just accept your vagrancy,

'You look for meaning in things no one comprehends,
You feel no affinity to the rabble we're in,'
Sources of inquiry have nothing to portend,
They will perplex us all until the coming end,

A feeling of despair, hungry and full of care,
We resent everywhere the fortune that we share,
'This world could be a better place' is a concept I condone,
Given our pathetic course our destiny is known,

It's misery and famine, it's a force we cannot see,
Misery and famine, it compels us naturally,
Misery and famine, great ellipse, we bend to thee,
Misery and famine, just accept your vagrancy,

[Repeat: x4]
