Bad Religion

I can recall the warm youth of a summer day

the sweetest lemonade

the darkest game arcade

and billy had a yearning in the corner of his mind

it moved him secretly

it moved him powerfully

but prescience was lacking and the present was all

and his aptitudes were carelessly wasted

and challenging life with the abandon of a fool

he squandered the hours of his day

then darkness and disorder slapped him sharply in the face

it hit him like a friend

struck something deep within

he couldn't break the chain of slow decay that seemed to drag him

just like a fatal tie

toward the other side

and billy was a lunatic just barking at the moon

and his brain was totally wasted

he then exchanged his friends for a needle and a spoon

and he threw his future away

bolt the door and throw away the key

your dim reflection is all that you can see

so where is the justice when no one is at fault

and a human life is tragically wasted?

how fragile is the flame that burns within us all

to light each passing day?
