Bad Religion New Maps of Hell Lyrics

Mau dikata apa lagi, Bad Religion punya album baru (yang sebenarnya sudah tidak terlalu baru): New Maps of Hell. Pengen nyanyi-nyanyi aja pakai lirik di bawah ini. 

Before You Die lyrics

Porcelain and alabaster, decaying ever faster,
Unaware of imminent disaster open up your eyes.

As you ruminate the hopeless sands of time,
Did you wander out your days lost and resigned?
Or recreate the universals in your mind?

Everybody is bastard: my world is like plaster
Crumbling apart from pressure of the blaster, waiting for a sign

And the momentary pleasures take their turn
As a wistful boy runs out of things to learn,
The episodes of yore are never to return.

Scare up some hope, you’re gonna need it just to cope,
You are the decision, numbers don’t lie
When you bite the dust, was it for purpose or for trust?

You’ll never relive it, think before you die.
Yeah, think! Think before you die.

Deficit and depravation – in the wake of desperation
Rewrite the morals, rectify the nation.
Now may be your time!

As you ruminate the hopeless sands of time,
Do you wonder how your life has been defined?
You know eternity can’t ever change your mind.
You know eternity can’t ever change your mind

So think! Think before you die!
Yeah, think! Think before you die

Honest Goodbye

Now get up and give in
I’ll crack your knuckles again
Supplicate and survive this transubstantiation
And get so mean – I want to know what it means!

(Did you laugh?) You know I did
(Did you cry?) I couldn’t get it right
(Did you live?) Always on the edge
(Did you lie?) Causing such a fright
(Did you love?) Oh to be forgiven
(Did you try?) But it wouldn’t be right

God it feels like an honest goodbye!

That sick brass boy day dreamin’
Cry baby convict demon
Hands so clean – a sympathetic cold blooded killing machine
How did you get so mean? – I want to know what it means!

(Did you laugh?) You know I did
(Did you cry?) I couldn’t get it right
(Did you live?) Always on the edge
(Did you lie?) Causing such a fright
(Did you love?) Oh to be forgiven
(Did you try?) But it wouldn’t be right

God it feels like an honest goodbye!

Dearly Beloved
Here’s a story of an honest man losing religion,
Climbing the pulpit steps before an eager congregation,
The while praying came a wicked inspiration,
Brothers, sisters this is what he said:

Dearly beloved, dearly beloved, dearly beloved, 
(Make no mistake, despite our traits, I’ve seldom seen evidence of genes)
I can’t relate to you, I can’t relate to you!

He was the kind of guy who’d always go right out of his way,
But more before that crazy notion leapt right into his head,
And stubbornly crept into every mad perception,
I can’t deny a funny feeling when he said:

Dearly beloved, dearly beloved, dearly beloved,
I can’t relate to you, I can’t relate to you!

Dearest in memoriam – set phasers to stun
And grab yourself a neighbors’ skeleton to lean upon,
Did you know him in life – one filled with regret,
So soon we all forget – we ever met,

Do you know my name – sing a light refrain
For a man estranged – I won’t deny that I’m inclined to isolate

Dearly beloved, dearly beloved, dearly beloved, 
I can’t relate to you, I can’t relate to you!
I can’t relate to you, I can’t relate to you, I can’t relate to you! 

Grains of Wrath

Back in ’83 a man came to men and he told me “Son, our way of life is done” 
But I was only young. 
With an eye to the fields speculators and yields rotten to the core,
Monoculture whores entered the bidding wars from distant shores,

I don’t wanna be in the land known as destitute and free,
With the grains of wrath blazing a path from sea to shining sea!

Oh the sinuous trails of concrete and rails and exhausted roars,
Population wars setting our future course,
Is profit and greed the only conceit on a scale between
Mere prosperity and inhumanity? It may well be but,

I don’t wanna be in the land known as destitute and free,
With the grains of wrath blazing a path from sea to shining sea!

I don’t wanna be in the land known as destitute and free,
With the grains of wrath blazing a path from sea to shining sea!
