BAD RELIGION Only Entertainment

Welcome to weightonmenahman lyrics BAD RELIGION Only Entertainment Lyrics, singer by BAD RELIGION

Transfixated on the big blue screen
its your window to the outside
a melancholy dream
a medium upon which you build reality
this episodic currency
that everybody needs
somebodies delivery lulls you to sleep
the man behind the weather map
the editor in chief
they control two worlds
power and disease
and you cannot supress you curiosity
but see it’s only entertainment
superficial urgency
posterboard mentality
only entertainemnt
tightly constrained
the buzz that remains
is the story of how we run our lives
many our the people poor and suffering
from the lack of coverage
from the transmission beam
and if it ever gets there
you’ll be offended too
’cause you cannot distinguish
chicanery from truth
see it’s only entertainment
a superficial episode
as life continues to unfold
only entertainment
controlled and copied
they’ve planted the seed
that sprouts into your picture of the world
can’t someone protect me (turn away, turn away)
from this electron beam?
hey you, Mr. FCC
have you no advice for me?

BAD RELIGION Chimaera

Welcome to weightonmenahman lyrics BAD RELIGION Chimaera Lyrics, singer by BAD RELIGION

You took a time bomb
and a case of crackers
and you made a maelstrom of organic debris
then you took a work bench
and a rusty anvil
and you polished them for everyone to see
you have created an unhealthy monster
but you’re nowhere but nowhere to be found
so I guess I’ll just cope with my provisions
from now until the day theu lay me down
you took a babboon
and made him perfect
you took a lion
and stripped him of his pride
then you took a million more varieties
a scalpel and a sartory
and you stitched up a horrible surprise
you have created an unsocial monster
and you’re searched for all over the globe
and most belive that things would sure be better
if you’d come down here and tell us what you know
who is to blame for this?
someone tell me please
His handiwork is flawed
and it’s there for all to see
mutataions, abberations and blatant anomalies
they multiply and give rise to this…monstrosrity
you took the most abundant smallest bits of matter
and you instilled them with affinity
and then you stratified accumulations
weeded out bad variations
and blended up your unique recipe
you have created a powerful monster
with direction and purpose all its own
and if you were here
would things be any different?
or are you just a mosaic of thoughts alone?

BAD RELIGION Fertile Crescent

Welcome to weightonmenahman lyrics BAD RELIGION Fertile Crescent Lyrics, singer by BAD RELIGION

Come and see the brilliant light
don’t let your emotions mask your sight
it’s the manifestation of a deeper fight
that affects me and you
my optimism was running high
a new world order was on my mind
but I couldn’t belive it when I heard them say
they’re blowing it away
and the fertile crescent is burning today
and baby my emotions are too
the cradle of humanity has led us all astray
and we’re all in this tigether don’t you know
’cause our species has nowhere else to go
aggression rears its ugly head
retaliation brings further dread
the two are linked by unseen threads
that wind back through time
I don’t agree with the outdated trend
nationalism is an evil friend
but hatred is instilled by invisible lines
drawn in our minds
and the fertile crescent is haunting us today
and baby our instincts are too
the ghost of humanity is warning us this way
and I think we all should need it don’t you know
’cause we’ve got nowhere else to go

BAD RELIGION The Answer

Welcome to weightonmenahman lyrics BAD RELIGION The Answer Lyrics, singer by BAD RELIGION

Long ago in a dusty village
full of hunger, pain and strife
a man came forth with a vision of truth
and the way to a better life
he was convinced he had the answer
and he compelled people to follow along
but the hunger never vanished
and the man was banished
and the village dried up and died
at a time when wise men peered
through glass tubes toward the sky
the heavens changed in predictable ways
and one man was able to find
that he had thought he found the answer
and he was quick to write his revelation
but as they were scutinized
in his colleagues eyes
he soon became a mockery
don’t tell me about the answer
’cause then another one will come along soon
I don’t believe you have the answer
I’ve got ideas too
but if you’ve got enough naivete
and you’ve got conviction
then the answer is perfect for you
an urban sprawl sits choking on its discharge
overwhelmed by industry
searching for a modern day savior from another place
inclined toward charity
everyone’s begging for an answer
without regard to validity
the searching never ends
it goes on and on for eternity
