This isn't another new fashion
Or a new wave plastic trend
Everybody's searching for something
But in the mean time let's all just pretend
I've got this feeling
And I don't know what it is
This room is overcrowded, man
And I need air to breath

Big bang, big crunch
You know there's no free lunch
Kneel down and pray
Here comes your judgment day
Big crunch, you know
It's going to be quite a show
What goes around always comes around

A million hopeless faces
Dwell within protected walls
All waiting for a moment in their lives
When they can heed the clarion call
And it's all so oppressive
My mind feels like a sieve
This city is overcrowded, man
And I need room to live

I think of the countless shadows
That have all come and gone
All suffering in the notion of better things to come
If you share these beliefs
You know I wish you well
'Cause there's no room left in heaven
And there's sure no room in hell

    The meanings are pretty obvious, but valid nevertheless

    Rebel, rise up against the oppressive future ahead

    General CommentThis song to me is about how the people in society are just waiting to be called for a purpose while serving meaninglessly under an opressive rule."all waiting in life when they can head the clarion call" describes this song perfect ly, meaninglesly serving under the name of god. "'cause there's no room left in heaven and there's sure no room in hell, yeah. " is saying that in the end there will be no hope when you die and your life will just be wasted...

    I think it's about capitalist system in the world.

    General CommentThis is the song that got me into Bad Religion. I think the meaning does not need to be explained.
