Track 3 from side two of Suffer, or track 11 overall (for the compact disc folks), “Part II (The Numbers Game)”. Suffer, being the first of four albums from Bad Religion’s classic period.
I chose this song, as it is fairly unique with the numbers being sung.
A couple of fairly bleak quotes, however in order to improve the world, we have to recognise, and address, the negatives.
Think of them what you will.
It’s superficial progress, they call it liberation
With opiates of silicon, big brother schemes to rule the nation
We’re one nation under God, we stand above the rest
With mighty high technology, we’re never second best
