"Sensory Overload" as written by and Brett Gurewitz....
They're all just suicides, in a social way.
I'll never need that dormant time, I'll tell you why.
'Cause I think about it all the time,
I think about ?
I am ?
Sensory ? you
Sensory ? you

I don't know why, trust me,
It's bleeding me,
I don't know why, God, it's social suicide.
Sensory overload, what a hell of a time.
Gotta sensory overload, gotta free your little mind,
Free your little mi-i-mind.

Oh!
Go!
'Cause I think about ?
I think about ?
Think about playing these games for real.
I want to write down all the things I feel.
Don't want to hide from the things I hear.

I don't know why, trust me,
Oh God it's bleeding me,
I don't know, God, it's social suicide.
Sensory overload, what a hell of a time.
Gotta sensory overload, gotta free your mind,
Free your little mi-i-mind, your little

    General Commentwooooooooooooaahhhhhhhh this song is so great. the guitar part is so good and so is the drum part, that guy is crazy with the cymbals and fills. but the voice is the best part of the song. is it just me or is old bad religion better? they are all good but the 80-85 and how could hell be any worse are so amazing. i liked his voice better back then. this song seems to be about this guy going crazy, it's an overload for his senses and he doesn't know why but it's really pissing him off. you guys should all check out this song

    General CommentAgreed. Old but still so fucking good. better than contemporary shit.(but BR's new stuff still better)

    Yea more or less. But Im pretty sure or I think this song isnt about one guy in particular in a way.
    more of the social community's ect. of their time. 60s,70's,80s,

    Grow up with alotta energy as a kid. but its an overload they settle down and marry highschool sweethearts..
    stay within thier community and birthplace for life. cuz wieght of the world afflicts on them as they get alittle older; so they opt out and just settle with mediocrity and harmony of their communities who stay local for life. turning dismal.

    they; being somewhat before thier time; daying they wont give in to that fear and fall into that dormancy. snesory overload can be a downfall. free yur little mid...inind

    General CommentThis lyrics is wrong : P I have the correct one below:

    This isn't art this is suicide in a social way.
    I don't have the need and I don't have the time, I'll tell you why,

    Because I think about it all the time.
    I think about what's true and what's lie.
    I used to think things in my head were true.
    Sensory feedback from things like you [x2]

    I don't know why this must be, the guitar's misleading me.
    I don't know why I've got a social suicide, from a sensory overload.
    It's a hell of a time...
    Got a sensory overload, got a tricky little mind,
    Tricky little mind. Oh! Go!

    Because I think about the quivering flesh.
    Then I think about this urban mess.
    Think about playing these games for real.
    I wanna write down all the things I feel.
    Don't wanna hide from the things I hear.
    I don't know why this must be, the guitar's misleading me!
    I don't know why we've got a social suicide.
    Sensory overload....
