Fertile Crescent (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 believe it when I heard them say They're blowing it away 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 together don't you know 'Cause our species has nowhere else to go Aggression rears it's ugly head Retaliation brings further dread The two are linked by unseen threads That wind back through time I don't agree with this outdated trend Nationalism is an evil friend But hatred is instilled by invisible lines Drawn in our minds The fertile crescent is haunting us today And baby our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 that we all should heed it don't you know 'Cause we've got nowhere else to go 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 that we all should heed it don't you know 'Cause we've got nowhere else to go
