Bad Religion lyrics

As long as i remember - i was left all by myself
When trouble crossed my way i stood alone
My old man hit the bottle - my mom was running scared
The old forgotten prayers turned to stone

I'm searching for identity - i don't know who i am
The past has cast the shadow over me

Like a bad religion - the only one i know
I never had no shelter - never had a place to go
A bad religion - my life is make-believe
Bad religion - i'm begging for relief

I tried to break the circle - to break the vicious spell
Bur the past is always heavy on my mind
I'm dancing with the devil - a dangerous romance
A daring way to leave it all behind

I'm searching for identity - i don't know who i am
The past has cast the shadow over me

Like a bad religion - the only one i know
I never had no shelter - never had a place to go
A bad religion - my life is make-believe
Bad religion

I need someone to talk to - someone to understand
I need a friend to lend a helping hand
I'm gonna pull myself together - shed this battered skin
I'm ready for the challenge - this loser's out to win

Like a bad religion - the only one i know
I never had no shelter - never had a place to go
A bad religion - my life is make-believe
Bad religion - i'm begging for relief - bad religion
