Against the grain Lyrics by Bad Religion 



Against the grain by Bad Religion


Three thousand miles of wilderness overcome by the flow,
A lonely restitution of pavement, pomp and show,
I seek a thousand answers, I find but one or two,
I maintain no discomfiture, my path again renewed,

Against the grain, that's where I'll stay,
Swimming upstream, I maintain against the grain,

Here labelled as a lunatic, sequestered and content,
There ignored and defeated by the government,
There's an oriented public whose magnetic force will pull,
But away from the potential of the individual,

Against the grain, that's where I'll stay,
Swimming upstream, I maintain against the grain,

The flow is getting stronger with small increments of time
And eddies of new ideas are increasingly hard to find,
You need all that the other has, it's your right to seize the day
But in all your acquisitions you will soon be swept away,

Against the grain, that's where I'll stay,
Swimming upstream, I maintain against the grain,

There's a common consensus and an uncomfortable cheer,
A reverberating chorus that anyone can hear,
It sings 'leave your cares behind you, just grab tenaciously,'
This lulling sense of purpose will destroy us rapidly,

Against the grain, that's where I'll stay,
Swimming upstream, I maintain against the grain,

Against the grain, against the grain,
Against the grain
