Bad Religion Lyrics

15. Shattered Faith



The scientist purported that there ain't no purpose
and the theologian told me that it's all been designed
and I'm trying to maintain objectivity
The world won't illuminate what really matters
and I'm an imperfect moral meaning extractor
processing the complexity

Born of the Earth (Are we blind?)
We weren't given a choice (There's no way)
What about free will? (What we have)
Do we have a voice? (Is shattered faith)
See them run in place (Here and now)
in the human rat race (No reward)
So much dead weight (No debate) 
to our disgrace (Is shattered faith)

Life begins when you accept your fate

Paralysis from forces raging out of control 
until my confidence and will are at an all-time low
Wow! Just directionless wandering
Eternal life, eternal truth, eternal secrets
Isolated hopes and hypotheses just
Leave me feeling so hungry

Born of the Earth (Are we blind?)
We weren't given a choice (There's no way)
What about free will? (What we have)
Do we have a voice? (Is shattered faith)
See them run in place (Here and now)
in the human rat race (No reward)
So much dead weight (No debate) 
to our disgrace (Is shattered faith)

Life begins when you accept your fate

Right or wrong, the main criterion 
is what you do and not what you say
The roads you take, the friends you make 
and those you throw away

The method is a simple synthesis 
of the past and present state
You never lose if the path you choose 
is one you can easily navigate

I had a dream, light and carefree
But now there's doubt and gravity

But I won't run in place (Are we blind?) 
in the human rat race (There's no way)
I can set the pace (What we have) 
and accept my fate (Is shattered faith)

Shattered faith (Here and now)
Shattered faith (No reward)
the part of me (No debate) 
I can't erase (Is shattered faith!)
