Bad Religion

Struck a Nerve (Live)

 

Recorded live September 8, 1996 at Shades in Jacksonville, Florida

 

there's an old man on a city bus

holding a candy cane,

and it isn't even christmas,

he sees a note in the obituary that

his last friend has died,

there's an infant clinging to

his overweight mother as they go to

shop for cigarettes,

and she spends her last dollar

for a bottle of vodka for tonight

 

and I guess it struck a nerve,

like I had to squint my eyes,

you can never get out of the line of sight,

like a barren winter day,

or a patch of unburned green,

like a tragic real dream,

i guess it struck a nerve

 

every day I wander in negative disposition,

as I'm bombarded by superlatives,

realizing very well that I'm not alone,

introverted i look to tomorrow for salvation,

but I'm thinking altruistically,

and a wave of overwhelming doubt

turns me to stone

 

and I guess it struck a nerve,

sent a murmur through my heart,

we just haven't got time to crack the maze,

like a magic speeding clock,

or a cancer in our cells,

a collision in the dark,

I guess it struck a nerve

 

I try to close my eyes,

but I cannot ignore the stimuli,

if there's a purpose for us all

it remains a secret to me,

don't ask me to justify my life
