Bad Religion quote #25 A Walk

I’m going for a walk
Not the after dinner kind
I’m gonna use my hands
And I’m gonna use my mind

From “A Walk”, great song from the first album without Brett Gurewitz, The Gray Race (1996). This is the second Bad Religion song I have used a quote from that has a music video. Watch it, and then read on (embedding is disabled, so just click-through to YouTube)! This one was written by Greg Graffin.

Lyrics are kind of reminiscent of my quote from yesterday, “I want to conquer the world”, in that he wants to do some good for the world.

Full lyrics:

I’m going for a walk
Not the after dinner kind
I’m gonna use my hands
And I’m gonna use my mind

And who the hell are you to tell me what to do?
You can’t even tie your own haggard shoes
Your closet is a mess, and your backyard’s falling down
And I have no grand ideas or intentions of sticking around

So I’m going for a walk
Not the after dinner kind
I’m gonna use my hands
And I’m gonna use my mind

And I’m gonna build a world
Independent and exempt
All alone I’ll be an empire
With no mortgage and no rent

And I don’t need to live in your stinkin’ up zoo
You can’t even feed the animals donated to you
Your storage sheds are ramshackled, flies decorate the walls
And you expect me to die here in this shit-filled tiny stall?
I’m going for a walk

And I know you’re watching everything I do
Call me threat to your children call me socially unglued
Call me master of insanity, unable to relate
Call me lazy, bane, and filthy, call me monstrous reprobate

I’m going for a walk
And there’s nothing you can do
‘Cause I don’t have to
Live like you

I’m going for a walk
I’m going for a walk
I’m going for a walk
