Germs of Perfection (Bad Religion)

Lacerate eviscerate and perforate and mutilate We all fall down, all fall down Deprecate repudiate ameliorate adjudicate The wisdom found, wisdom found Clip the wings of progress, turn the direction Enrich the fallow soil with germs of perfection Delegate facilitate investigate and obviate The black turns green, black turns green Separate evaluate and cultivate and propagate The master's dream, master's dream Sing the fears of history with renewed inflection View the lost agenda with a skeptic's intention Machine of life, oh can we make it run? We have the tools, but have only just begun Machine of life, oh can we make it run? The calculations of a greater sum Clip the wings of progress, turn the direction Enrich the fallow soil with germs of perfection Perfection!
