Punk Rock Song Lyrics - Bad Religion
Review The Song (9)
have you been to the desert?
have you walked with the dead?
there's a hundred thousand children being killed for their bread
and the figures don't lie they speak of human disease
but we do what we want and we think what we please
have you lived the experience?
have you witnessed the plague?
people making babies sometimes just to escape
in this land of competition the compassion is gone
yet we ignore the needy and we keep pushing on
we keep pushing on
this is just a punk rock song
written for the people who can see something's wrong
like ants in a colony we do our share
but there's so many other fuckin' insects out there
and this is just a punk rock song
(like workers in a factory we do our share
but there's so many other fuckin' robots out there)
have you visited the quagmire?
have you swam in the shit?
the party conventions and the real politic
the faces always different, the rhetoric the same
but we swallow it all, and we see nothing change
nothing has changed...
10 million dollars on a losing campaign
20 million starving and writhing in pain
big strong people unwilling to give
small in vision and perspective
one in five kids below the poverty line
one population runnin' out of time

one of my favorites | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/28/10
The lyric is actually "party convention and the realpolitik," which is a theory that states in anarchy (in the sense that they are without an international governing body) cannot afford to be moral, and must instead focus on providing for the needs of its own citizens.
Two cents. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/10/09
I have always interpreted this song as being about our desensitivity as a society. We think because we give this or that to charity and know slight bit about politics that we have done our share. This is not the case and Greg Graffin expresses this view wonderfully.
:) Punk rock is ace | Reviewer: Louisey | 8/30/07
I'm totally mad about punk rock when i'm in the mood for I
I go mad :)
I totally agree with Abi on this song :)
and the person below that comment shouldn't be so patronising.
Abi is young and free, just like loads of other kids
She uses the same language all other kids use.
Not language 28 year olds use. *cough*
Anyway back to the song :)
It's such a great song like all bad religion songs though this one is my fave :)
I'm off to eat my pancake now :)

MS, I think your own spelling and "grammer" could use a bit more polish before you submit your dissertation...
I agree. | Reviewer: MS | 2/14/07
firstname.lastname@example.org you say that you are only fifteen as a disclaimer, it gives the impression that your opinion is invalid or wrong. To help support you I am a 28 political sciencs major working towards my masters and I agree with your sentiment completely. Although your grammer could use a bit of work if you want your words to be heard.
