Materialist Lyrics

Materialist by Bad Religion  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Materialist You抮e obsessed and distressed 慶ause you can抰 make any sense
of the ludicrous nonsense and incipient senescence
that will deem your common sense useless
This ain抰 no recess!
I want to believe in you but my plan keeps falling through
I know I have to face the harshness, grin and bare the truth
And I have to walk this mile in my own shoes (and I抦 no fool!)
I抦 materialist
A full-blown realist
And I guess I抦 full of doubt
So I抦 prone to have it out with you
I抦 materialist
There ain抰 no fear in this
It抯 there for all to see
So don抰 talk of hidden mystery with me
Mind over matter it really don抰 matter
if the street抯 idle chatter turns your heart-strings to tatters
Flatter hopes don抰 flatter and soul batter won抰 congeal
to mend a life that is shattered into shards
Was it in the cards?
The process of belief is an elixir when you抮e weak
I must confess, at times I indulge it on the sneak
But generally my outlook抯 not so bleak (and I抦 not meek!)
I抦 materialist, call me a humanist
I guess I抦 full of doubt
So I抣l gladly have it out with you
I抦 materialist
I ain抰 no deist
It抯 there for all to see so don抰 talk of hidden mystery with me
Like Rome under Nero, our future抯 one big zero
Recycling the past to meet immediate needs
And through it all we amble forth to persevere and climb
Our mountains of regret to sow our seeds
I'm materialist!
I'm materialist!
I'm materialist!
I'm materialist!
