"Germs of Perfection" as written by and Greg/gurewitz Graffin....
Lacerate, eviscerate, and perforate, and mutilate
We all fall down, all fall down
Deprecate, repudiate, ameliorate, adjudicate
The wisdom found, wisdom found

Clip the wings of progress, turn the direction
Enrich the fallow soil with germs of perfection

Delegate, facilitate, investigate, and obviate
The black turns green, black turns green
Separate, evaluate, and cultivate, and propagate
The master's dream, master's dream

Sing the fears of history with renewed inflection
View the lost agenda with a skeptic's intention

Machine of life, oh, can we make it run?
We have the tools, but only just begun
Machine of life, oh, can we make it run?
The calculations of a greater sum

Clip the wings of progress, turn the direction
Enrich the fallow soil with germs of perfection

Perfection!

    General CommentI don't get why everyone interprets the new songs about being about the war especially, especially when they said they would not be. Seeing as someone in the band is like a professor teaching on evolution or life-sciences or something lots of lyrics are most likely taking their inspiration from that.

    I think this song is all about turning shit around though and is little of an naturalist lyric perhaps. Germs is seen in society as something disgusting and useless etcetera i believe, but really if you look at it and understand it you see and know that germs in fact work really hard at creating perfection i believe in the ground and shit and serve an very important purpose. I think this one might also be about changing the present and stuff by digging into the history more etcetera.
