Bad Religion quote #18

Among the commuters, dwarfed by the skyscrapers
I watch the countless millions fighting for space
See hateful petty acts, disjointed images
And can’t believe that I’m one of the same race

A long quote. Again, unfortunately true. Last Bad Religion quote being that being in regards to fear being used on the American people. We all need to slow down for a while, and show compassion towards others. Of course it is a rat race out there, that does not mean we cannot be kind, and caring. Further, work together to right wrongs. Although I have not finished reading it, I recommend Ralph Nader’s The Good Fight: Declare Your Independence and Close the Democracy Gap.

From the song “The Dodo”. It can be found on the Punk Rock Song single, which incidentally also included the German version of “Punk Rock Song”!

Full lyrics:

I see a white haired man, he’s got a suit on and
He’s telling people how they’re supposed to live
Nobody’s listening to the politician
No matter what sage advice he has to give

He’s got a clumsy, outdated m.o.
And he’s come to a fork in the road
And there’s only one direction to go

Among the commuters, dwarfed by the skyscrapers
I watch the countless millions fighting for space
See hateful petty acts, disjointed images
And can’t believe that I’m one of the same race

We’re all just struggling to cope
And we come to a fork in the road
As we watch our foundations erode
There is only one direction to go

It’s the way of the dodo, such a noble destiny
It’s the waltz of desperation passed along to you and me
The way of the dodo

We’re all just struggling to cope
And we come to a fork in the road
As we watch our foundations erode
There’s only one direction to go

It’s the way of the dodo, it’s the gray stuff in your head
It’s the pulse of the living and the voices of the dead
It’s the way of the dodo, such a noble destiny
It’s the waltz of desperation passed along to you and me

The way of the dodo
