Bad Religion Lyrics

5. Requiem For Dissent



Oratory of hope and glory, a whisper and a rhyme.
An effigy, a soldier out of time.
Citizen and patriot, you can't be far behind.
The funeral, weighing heavy on your mind.

(Requiem) Bring the dissident from slumber.
(Requiem) Raise the rebel from its grave.
(Requiem) Sound the revolution's thunder,
A monumental blunder, averted and betrayed.

Dig around the cemetery, a record of the day.
Friends and neighbours in stages of decay.
But the saddest thing of all eludes discovery,
The stimulus of this sombre ceremony.

(Requiem) Bring the dissident from slumber.
(Requiem) Raise the rebel from its grave.
(Requiem) Sound the revolution's thunder,
A monumental blunder, averted and betrayed.

The sanctimonious minions, how they grovel at the feet.
Authority (fuck authority) is populist deceit.
Pity yet another casualty's demoralized decline,
Just a victim of irrational design.

Requiem.
Requiem.
Requiem.

Bring the dissident from slumber.
(Requiem) Raise the rebel from its grave.
(Requiem) Sound the revolution's thunder,
A monumental blunder, averted and betrayed.
