BAD RELIGION - "I Want To Conquer The World"

Hey Brother Christian
with your high and mighty errand,
Your actions speak so loud,
I can't hear a word you're saying.
Hey Sister Bleeding Heart
with all of your compassion,
Your labors soothe the hurt
but can't assuage temptation.

Hey man of science
with your perfect rules of measure,
Can you improve this place
with the data that you gather?
Hey Mother Mercy
can your loins bear fruit forever?
Is your fecundity
a trammel or a treasure?

And I want to conquer the world,
Give all the idiots a brand new religion,
Put an end to poverty,
uncleanliness and toil,
Promote equality in all of my decisions
With a quick wink of the eye
And a "God you must be joking!"

Hey Mr. Diplomat
with your worldly aspirations,
Did you see your children cry
when you left them at the station?
Hey moral soldier
you've got righteous proclamation,
And precious tomes
to fuel your pulpy conflagrations.

And I want to conquer the world,
Give all the idiots a brand new religion,
Put an end to poverty,
uncleanliness and toil,
Promote equality in all of my decisions

I want to conquer the world,
Expose the culprits
and feed them to the children,
I'll do away with air pollution
and then I'll save the whales,
We'll have peace on earth
and global communion.

I want to conquer the world!
I want to conquer the world!
I want to conquer the world!
I want to conquer the world!
