Bad Religion - The Resist Stance Lyrics




Seeds of rebellion lay outside your front door
If you nourish them and water them they'll grow into a healthy "what for?"
And if revolution isn't what's in store, how can you care anymore?

It's a dangerous slip, a conscientious shift
In the spirit of resistance you gotta hold your grip
Lest the state of your resolve makes you quickly devolve to a fundamentalist

You're an archetype that they can pin to the wall
When you cling to your convictions like a farm animal in its stall
Never thinking of the bigger world outside, as they take you for a ride

It's a dangerous slip, a conscientious shift
In the spirit of resistance you gotta hold your grip
Because passion unabated can be readily conflated with belligerence

It's a dangerous slip and a conscientious shift
In the spirit of resistance you gotta hold your grip
And the verdict won't be kind, cuz they're desperate for a viable alternative.

Take a stance. The resist stance.
Take a stance. The resist stance.
Take a stance. The resist stance.
Take a stance. The resist stance!

    SEEDS OF REBELLION LAY OUTSIDE YOUR FRONT DOOR
    IF YOU NOURISH THEM AND WATER THEM THEY'LL GROW INTO A HEALTHY "WHAT FOR?"
    AND IF REVOLUTION ISN'T WHAT'S IN STORE
    HOW CAN YOU CARE ANYMORE?

    dante

    healthy one*

    justice 5150

    It actually is "What for" you can check either the album lyrics or thebrpage.net

  37. sergiusz kurczuk

    Riff sounds like bridge riff from Minor Threat's "Steppin' Stone". Brian Baker? ;)

    481216Dragon

    And the singer sounds like David Lee Roth.

    NFSjam

    Actually yes. Brian Baker from Minor Threat has been one of the guitarists in Bad Religion since the 90’s, so you’re actually right on that one. XD

  38. Nick G

    Sounds like Rush's Working man.

  39. Hiran Marialva

    My favorite song of all time!!

  40. Plante2131

    I keep on hearing hate for this album... I don't know why there would be hate. Their lyrics are still impactful and meaningful, their instrumentals are spot on and awesome... So why the hate? They are not as young as they use to be, and neither am I. As long as they keep popping out tunes with awesome lyrics, I will always love them. :) Keep it up Bad Religion!

  41. ganta igarashi

    take a stance!

  47. Bury Zenek

    It's because finding this song through game is too manestream. Yeah, I don't get this too.

  48. 244mrcool

    I loved hearing this while playing Requirement of Velocity, Warm Chase

  49. Tom Bailey

    WHY CAN THIS SONG NOT BE LONGER

  50. KartKing4ever

    A month and a half is not late to a song. Late to a song is well over a year.

  51. MegaDoubleLOL

    If you think showing up a month and half later is "not late", I wonder what they'll say when you have a meeting....

  52. KartKing4ever

    Well, I mean NFS came out November 16th. A month and a half after this song came out so, we're not that late.

    "You're an archetype they can pin to the wall when you cling to your convictions like a farm animal in its stall." - This is why Bad Religion outclasses 99% of other punk bands lyrically and politically.
