"Whisper in Time" as written by and Greg Graffin....
All those stories that my dad told me,
They are just a whisper in time

All those things that never came to be,
They are just a whisper in time

A whisper in time, a whisper in time
Things that I can't shake from my mind

A whisper in time, a whisper in time
Moments that just flicker and die
(memories that flicker and die)

All those places I wanted to go,
They are just a whisper in time

All those friends who now I do not know,
They are just a whisper in time

Maps and roads that brought me here today,
They are just a whisper in time

Circumstances that were explained away,
They are just a whisper in time

We are messengers of memory,
Just whispers in time

    General CommentThis is, in my opinion, the greatest Bad Religion song ever...all that really matters in life are memories, since in the end, they are all we have. When your dad tellsyou a story he is allowing those events to live on in someone else. All the things that people wanted that for one reason or another never occurred live on inside you, because they exist in your mind. The list goes on and on, this song is just so deep and profound. By far my favorite Bad Religion song.

    General CommentWow. I can't believe I said that. This song is pretty good, it's a bit a repetitious, though, but still good.

    General CommentThis does not sound like Bad Religion to me. It sounds like a Good Charlotte song whining about what they never got.
