Bad Religion - Parallel Lyrics

Parallel



there's an ocean of unpleasantries we are not prepared to face



sitting on the fence post to watch the storm roll in

and terrified of the damage it will bring when it begins

it will begin



splintered dreams of unity (our lives are parallel)

so far from reality (our lives are parallel)

independent trajectories (our lives are parallel)

separate terms of equality (our lives are parallel)



our lives are parallel



is there no redemption? no common good?

is there nothing we can do for ourselves? or only what we should?



comes the hard admission of what we don't provide

goes the insistence on the ways and means that so divide



they so divide



side by side suffering loneliness (our lives are parallel)

phony collective progress (our lives are parallel)

accepting that it's all such a mess (our lives are parallel)

gesturing without hope of redress (our lives are parallel)



our lives are parallel



forging little plays of deception and pain

as we watch our foundation crumble away

staggering like birds against a hurricane

and trying all the while to stay out of each other's way



broken dreams of unity (our lives are parallel)

independant trajectories (our lives are parallel)

screaming out for understanding (our lives are parallel)

turning inward and suffering (our lives are parallel)
