a sullen figure walks along a dusty road,

                                           C  G
his life was holy and he couldn't bear the load,

he left his people and simple life behind,

                                        C  G
he raised his torso and looked into the sky,

D                       F             C
shouting his questions, looking for directions,

what do I do now?

now a confused schoolgirl stares at the T.V. tray,

                                        C  G
the stresses of maturing compound every day,

she glances up to see her favorite video,

                                       C  G
and gets ideas from Madonna's nasty clothes,

   D                      F          C
in need of affection, she craves a direction,

her heroes offer her,

D                      A
everyone's looking for something,

         C          G         A
and they assume somebody else knows what it is,

D                       A   
no one can live without decisions of their own,

   C             G#      D       A#
it seems so they look to someone else,

   F    E
to tell them what to do,

F    E
tell'em what to wear,

F    E
tell'em what to say,

F    E         F   E                F   E         F  E        F   E
tell'em how to act and think and compel others compulsively until the
world is 

F   G    A
all like them


a righteous student came and asked me to reflect,

                                            C  G   
he judged my lifestyle was politically incorrect,

I don't believe in self important folks who preach,

                                            C  G
no Bad Religion song can make your life complete,

prepare for rejection,

       F        C            Riff
you'll get no direction from me,

       D   A    C  G         Riff
you'll get no direction from me
