Bad Religion - 
Pessimistic Lines
---------------------------------------------

so here we are again to experience
the bitter, scalding end
and we're the only ones who can perceive it
but others sing of beauty
and the story that has enfolded
as one that deserves praise and ritual

my pessimistic lines
your superstitious lives
and the modern age's lies
won't absolve you

and the professorial truth
and the dear clairvoyant youth
and, of course, the nightly news
will deceive you (watch out)
