Strange Denial (Bad Religion)

A mutinous enemy Carved a nascent country Sweat, blood, and valor Forms the grit of our history Beqeathed to everyone Chance and free expression Substance was restrained And the spirit was broken I feel a strange denial Rhythmic as a change Constance as time Lonely insistent whispers Somber as a wave bye bye, bye bye Searching for solution Without constitution Blackcoats by our sides Promising salvation Advocating dogma As tickets to hereafter Mortals in their prime With their desperate hands in the air Daunting complex and burning Rhythmic as change Constant as time Conflicts, craving approval Weighted as a murder trial Oh I feel a strange denial Correct is consensus Everything else, nonsense Forward is the hope Forget recompense Peace and tranquility Is only for the wealthy Dearth for the massses And inequality I feel a strange denial Rythmic as change Constant as time Lonely insistent whispers Dissipating in the night Like a lone forgotten light And no one is helping me It's a strange denial
