Versuri Bad Religion - 04. Portrait of Authority

Album: Bad Religion - Recipe for Hate

nothing more nothing less
an icon on the wall decoration and duress
that which many strive to be
its the marble statue standing over me
and nobody has the will to tear it down
it determines wrong and right
but to me its just a stereotype
and it makes us lose our sight
the portrait of authority (portrait of authority)
you tell me
that's what I'm supposed to be (portrait of authority)
you tell me
thats what I'm supposed to be
another time another man
an oppressive intrusion
and a plague across his land
and it haunts him every day
it tells him that he has no chance
his hopes just fade away
and he lives his life prepared to tear it down
but he can't muster the support
and to him it's just a stereotype
of his life-long fight
the portrait of authority (portrait of authority)
it embodies what he cannot be (portrait of authority)
it's what he cannot be
portrait of athority
