"Won't Somebody" as written by and Greg/gurewitz Graffin....
Out in the cold, like a bundle of coal,
Little packets of darkness, wanting to grow,
Well there's nobody home,
And there's a wreck in the yard,
And maybe their coming back,
If we wish really hard, if we wish real hard now,

Won't somebody please come up with something
Cause Jesus just don't seem to be
Impartially working,
And all of the rest are really down in the ratings,
But everyone, is going to keep on waiting

Waiting for peace,
At the end of our street,
Back behind our apartments,
In our passenger seats,
Just a moment of bliss,
Of it all of the ways,
But despair and oblivion,
Of our precarious ways,
It's ours to face now!

Won't somebody please come up with something
Cause Jesus just don't seem to be
Impartially working,
And all of the rest are really down in the ratings,
But everyone, is still right here waiting

Now I know, nothing lasts forever,
So we might as well wish for a God damn fix
Of this toxic change in weather

Won't somebody please come up with something
Cause Jesus just don't seem to be
Impartially working,
And all of the others can barely stay in the running,
But everyone, is still right here waiting

Won't somebody please come up with something
Won't somebody please come up with something
Won't somebody please come up with something
Won't somebody please come up with something

    General CommentIt is about how religion is getting us nowhere as a country/race. Not necessarily about the existence of god, but how religion has let us down, and we need an alternative. And most people are waiting in the wings, and not down with the fundamentalism, and fanaticism that has dominated the headlines, and policy recently. $0.02

    General CommentSounds like just the agony of waiting for deliverance.

    All BR albums reflect the modern times we're living in, and right now we seem to be sinking pretty low.
    It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with Jesus, his name was just a throw' in;

    But the lyrics basically say he's judging unfairly..

    It really captures the sinking flow of our modern times.

    General CommentI see it as «Oh, heck, won't somebody please come up with something, 'cause i don't wanna do it myself»
