At The Mercy Of Imbeciles        From the album: No Substance  Written by: Bad Religion

What you do is what you are
and wishing upon distant stars
won't improve the hole you're in
won't absolve your deepest sin

But action is no gift from some covert and lofty god
it's depend and weighty all the same
and it is oh so easy just to keep to yourself
but then your at the mercy of imbeciles

Now I didn't make up the rules
but clearly we are led by fools
it is wise to their ways
so you know how not to behave

But sometimes we found ourselves in desperate need
and we look to those with privilege and power
it's then we learn compassion sits inert on their shelves
we're at the mercy of imbeciles

NO action is no gift from some masked spirit in the sky
it's reducible to, flesh, mind and bone
and it is oh so easy just to keep to yourself

But then you're at the mercy at imbeciles
