Bad Religion Lyrics

11. The Defense



Nothing comes easier than madness in the world today.
Mass paranoia is a mode, not a malady.
Yeah, I'd like to watch all thousand cable channels, but there's nothing on.
And my high-speed connection's monitored daily by the pentagon.

These things are seldom what they seem.
I'm not inclined to enjoy my dreams.
Won't go away.

(No peace) No peace, (and no friends) no friends.
(We trace) We trace the mortal edge (with no defence).
To state the obvious,
This world is perilous for us.

No sense (no sense) and no guide (no guide).
Ain't it beautiful to be alive? (Yeah, right.)
I won't resign before the struggle ends,
So I'll construct this sound defence.

We are the prey and culture is the predator.
I'm running out of time where conditions are positional.
Shadows of a doubt cast reluctance and depravity.
There's gotta be a way to overcome this grim reality.

Is there an option left for me?
I'm not immune to despondency.
There's no way.

(No peace) No peace, (and no friends) no friends.
(We trace) We trace the mortal edge (with no defence).
To state the obvious,
This world is perilous for us.

No sense (no sense) and no guide (no guide).
Ain't it beautiful to be alive? (Yeah, right.)
I won't resign before the struggle ends,
So I'll construct this sound defence.

There's a signpost on the corner
And it keeps everybody safe.
We were all made in the shade.

And your mother's in the kitchen,
Where she's patching all the cracks in the wall.
We never had a care in the world.
Oh.

(No shade) Too much to sacrifice, (no light) it's hard to recognize.
(Just black) Traps to compromise (and white), obscuring deadly alibis.
(My plans) It's combinational (designs), the pressure's so intense,
So I'll construct this sound defence.

(No way) Nothing's plainer than the madness in the world today.
(No sign) I must conceal myself and steal myself and break away.
(No grace) I seek initiative in matters that are black and white,
(No sense) So I'll construct this sound defence.
