Bad Religion – Emancipation Of The Mind Lyrics

Chains of superstition all come undone
Vivid illumination that’s brighter than the sun
A handicap of bigotry and prejudice
All becomes a hinterland, a smoky wilderness…
The dominion of ignorance
The commons turned out to be a tragedy
Oh, the victims are easy to find
But the wellspring of true liberty is emancipation of the mind
It’s a stalemate of morality, a debt for all mankind
These haughty mental shackles make us blind to what is really right
The commons turned out to be a tragedy
Yeah, the victims are easy to find
But the wellspring of true liberty is emancipation of the mind
See what you can find if you take a different line
Emancipation of the mind Walls of suspicion, spandrels of doubt
Spasms of uncertainty, a world all inside-out
Ubiquitous confusion, heads in the sand
Self-appointed experts making claims they can’t defend or even understand
The commons turned out to be a tragedy
Oh, the victims are easy to find
But the wellspring of true liberty is emancipation of the mind
Hey!
