Doing time Lyrics

Doing time by Bad Religion  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Doing time See the fight, old men crying, deny their ruin.
Watch them try. The cynic laughs at the optimist's closed eyes.
Darkness falls, curtain calls, the cynic's beer soon overflows.
Other watches, has a drink, and from the same cup,
They drink
I'm doin' time, how long I don't know.
William had 26, blew his brains out, now look at him.
John had only one, watch the mother mourn her only son.
I'm doin' time, how long I don't know.
I'll kiss goodbye my brain and body
And go to sleep for generations.
And go to sleep for generations.
Salvation:
Cease concentration.
You'll only lose the fight.
Don't tell me what's wrong or right!
You're losing sight.
You're just gonna die anyway!
Bad Religion: Back to the Known EP (Epitath EP1-BREP2, 1984)
After their first album, as band members slowly drifted away, Greg
Graffin gradually changed the direction of their music, eventually
playing neo-psychedelic folsky songs that nobody seemed to like. After
releasing the album Into the Unknown and a few tracks on compilations,
the band finally broke up, Greg moved back home, and that appeared to be
it for Bad Religion.
Then, in 1984, Greg moved back to LA and he and Greg Hetson restarted the
band. Although Greg's two original songwriting partners (Brett, the
original guitarist, and Jay, the original bassist) were missing, it was
still a reuinion of sorts and a return to straightforward punk rock
(although a bit slower than their old music). Toward the end of the year,
after playing a few shows, they went into the studio, with Brett
engineering and producing, and recorded a new 5-song EP called Back to the
Known, which most people nowadays know as tracks 21-25 on the "80-85" CD.
This EP is also known as "The Slow Record" (although compared to Into the
Known, and later albums like Recipe For Hate, it doesn't sound so slow...)
The lineup was Greg Graffin (vocals), Greg Hetson (guitars), Tim Gallegos (bass),
and Pete Finestone (drums).
Sequence: Yesterday
Frogger
Bad Religion (Theme Song)
Along the Way
New Leaf

The lyrics on this EP are essentially guesses; hopefully someone can
correct my errors before they cause irreparable harm to the fabric of the
universe....
