Modern Day Catastrophists (from Recipe For Hate) | Discography | The Bad Religion Page - Since 1995
Quote of the day: "I heard them say that the meek shall reign on earth. Phantasmal myriads of sane bucolic birth. I've seen the rapture in a starving baby's eyes. Inchoate beatitude, the Lord of the Flies." - 1000 More Fools

Take those potatoes out of your ears,
Listen to the warnings, verify all your fears.
There's a world outside that's ready to blow
And we're all to blame when it finally explodes!

You gotta listen up,
Gotta listen to what they're saying to you,
Gotta listen up
And think about what they're telling you.

Temperature is risin' from deodorant spray.
We'll bury us alive in what we throw away.
If we don't reuse most of our debris,
our kids can't throw away their carbon for free.

You gotta listen up,
Gotta think about what I'm telling you,
Gotta listen up
And think about what I'm saying to you.

They're the modern day catastrophists,
They've got practical solutions,
They're the self-appointed righteous pragmatists,
And they know 50 ways to save the world.

What makes you think you can cure our disease?
Maybe it's just our biology,
Maybe it's time to make room for another species,
This is the 21st century!

You gotta listen up,
Gotta think about what they're saying to you,
Gotta listen up
And think about what they're telling you.

They're the modern day catastrophists,
They know all the right equations,
They're the self-appointed righteous pragmatists,
And you, too, can be one of the few to save the world!

But you gotta listen up,
And think about what they're telling you,
Gotta listen up
And do exactly what they tell you to.

They're the modern day catastrophists,
Modern day catastrophists. [7x]
