As long as I remember -
I was left all by myself
When trouble crossed my way
I stood alone
My old man hit the bottle -
My mom was running scared
The old forgotten prayers turned
To stone
I№m searching for identity -
I don№t show who I am
The past has cast a shadow over me
Like a bad religion -
The only one I know
I never had no shelter - never had
A place to go
A bad religion - my life
Is make-believe
Bad religion - I№m beggin№ for relief
I tried to break the circle - to
Break the vicious spell
But the past is always heavy
On my mind
I№m dancing with the devil -
A dangerous romance
A daring way to leave it all behind
I№m searching for identity -
I don№t know who I am
The past has cast a shadow over me
Like a bad religion -
The only one I know
I never had no shelter
Never had a place to go
A bad religion - my life
Is make-believe
Bad religion
I need someone to talk to -
Someone to understand
I need a friend to lend a helping hand
I№m gonna pull myself together -
Shed this battered skin
I№m ready for the challenge -
This loser№s out to win
Like a bad religion -
The only one I know
I never had no shelter -
Never had a place to go
A bad religion - my life
Is make-believe
Bad religion - I№m beggin№ for
Relief - bad religion
