Bad Religion – The Dodo lyrics

I see a white haired man, hes got a suit on hand
Hes telling people how theyre supposed to live
Nobodys listening to the politician
No matter what sage advice he has to give

Hes got a clumsy, outdated M. O.
And hes come to a fork in the road
And there is only one direction to go

Among the commuters, dwarfed by the skyscrapers
I watch the countless millions fighting for space
See hateful, petty acts, disjointed images,
And can't believe that I'm one of the same race

Were all just struggling to cope
And we come to a fork in the road
As we watch our foundations erode
Theres only one direction to go

Its the way of the dodo
Such a noble destiny
Its the waltz of desperation
Passed along to you and me
The way of the dodo
(its the gray stuff in your head)
(its the pulse of the living and the voices of the dead)
