"One Thousand More Fools" as written by and Brett Gurewitz....
I heard them say that the meek shall reign on earth,
Phantasmal myriads of sane bucolic birth,
I've seen the rapture in a starving baby's eyes,
Inchoate beatitude,
The Lord of the flies,
So what does it mean
When your mind starts to stray?
Kaleidoscopic images of love on the way,
Brother you'd better get down on your knees and pay,
1000 more fools are being born
Every fucking day,
They try to tell me that the lamb is on the way,
With microwave transmissions
They bombard us every day,
The masses are obsequious,
Contented in their sleep,
The vortex of their minds ensconced within
The murky deep.

    General CommentThe obvious part of the song, as the title implies, is the multitude of fools living incredibly shallow and meaningless lives today, guided by whatever the mass suggestion they choose to fit in promises ("the lamb is on the way,", "better get down on your knees and pay"). And as millions there are today, a thousand more are born each day. Mankind sounds pretty hopeless!

    But keeping with Bad Religion tradition of overwhelmingly deep meanings in less-than-two-minute songs, there seems to be more to it than meets the eye - what does it mean when your mind starts to stray?
