Sinister Rouge (from The Empire Strikes First) | 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

Innocents burned alive at the stake,
Tortured and dumped in nameless graves.
Centuries waned, authority died
Scattering seeds of ancient lies.

Sinister Rouge,
Coming back for more to even the score.
Sinister Rouge,
Coming back for more to even the score.

Child molesters and Jesuits
Holding secret conference
Underneath the Pontiff's nose
And only God will ever know.

Sinister Rouge,
Coming back for more to even the score.
Sinister Rouge,
Coming back for more to even the score.

Give us this day our daily bread,
Your legacy we'll not forget.
Lick the wounds, cleanse the land,
The modern world rejects your hands.

Sinister Rouge,
Coming back for more to even the score.
Sinister Rouge,
Coming back for more to even the score.
Sinister Rouge. [6x]
The nightmare comes in Sinister Rouge.
