BAD RELIGION lyrics : "The Answer"

Long ago in a dusty village
full of hunger, pain and strife
a man came forth with a vision of truth

and the way to a better life
he was convinced he had the answer
and he complelled people to follow along

but the hunger never vansihed
and the man was banished
and the village dried up and died

at a time when wise men peered
through glass tubes toward the sky
the heavens changed in predictable ways

and one man was able to find
that he had thought he found the answer
and he was quick to write his revelation

but as they were scutinized
in his colleagues eyes
he soon became a mockery

don't tell me the answer
I've got ideas too
but if you've got enough naivete

and you've got conviction
then the answer is perfect for you
an urban sprawl sits choking on its discharge

overwhelmed by industry
searching for a modern day savior from another place
inclined toward charity

everyone's begging for an answer
without regard to validity
the searching never ends

it goes on and on for eternity
