FIREFOX Users! I have no idea why the colors get weird and I am saddly too stupid to change it. Don't strain yourself... Just ask someone who CAN read it to translate it for you!

Bad Religion ~ Materialist

(Aside-- Hey Jay, Bad Religions bass players name is... Jay)

You're obsessed and distressed and you can't make any sense
of the ludicrous nonsense and
incipient senescence
that will deem your common sense useless
this aint no recess
I want to believe in you but my plans keep falling through
I know I have to face the harshness, grin and bear the truth
and I have to walk this mile in my own shoes
and I'm no fool

I'm materialist
a full blown realist
physical theorist
and I guess I'm full of doubt
so I'm prone to hear you out and refuse
I'm materialist
there ain't no fear in this
It's time for all to see
so don't talk of hidden mysteries
with me
Mind over matter
it really don't matter
if the streets idle chatter
turns your hearts strings to tatters
flatter hopes don't flatter
an soul batter wont congeal
to mend a life that is shattered into shards
was it in the cards?
The process of belief is an elixer when you're weak
I must confess at times I indulge it on the sneak
but generally my out looks not so bleak
and I'm not meek
I'm materialist
a full blown realist
and I guess I'm full of doubt
but I'll gladly have it out
with you
I'm materialist
I aint' no deist
it's there for all to see
so don't speak of hidden mysteries
with me
like Rome under Nero
our futures one big zero
recycling the past to meet immediate needs
and through it all we ramble forth
to persevere and climb
our mountains of regret to sow our seeds
I'm materialist
