"We're Only Gonna Die For Our Own Arrogance" as written by and Greg Graffin....
Early man walked away
As modern man took control
Their mind's weren't all the same
To conquer was their goal

So he built his great empire
And he slaughtered his own kind
He died a confused man
Killed himself in his own mind

Early man walked away
As modern man took control
Their mind's weren't all the same
To conquer was their goal

So he built his great empire
And he slaughtered his own kind
And he died a confused man
And killed himself in his own mind

Let's go!

Let's go!

We're only gonna die from our own arrogance
That's why we might as well take our time

    General CommentBiohazard also covered this song if you want a more 'Rock/Metal' version of it. I used to listen to them alot before I got into Ska stuff.

    General CommentMore often that not, Bad Religion's lyrics are more statements about human kind in general than about particular people and incidents. This song is about modern civilization and how it is slowly destroying what it means to be human. Most of the BR album this is taken from (How Could Hell Be Any Worse?) is in the same vein.
