The Quickening (Bad Religion)

The quickening is an ephemeral thing That only happens in the dark Like catching lightning in a jar And the pain that it brings Is just the promise of spring It’s madness on the way Oh, what does it mean… To come alive To come alive To come alive (To come alive) To come alive To come alive To come alive The entering is soulful conjecturing Oh, lost and by the wind grieved ghost Come back to me again Because the way that she bleeds Is in the law that he reads Confusing words and deeds So what does it mean… To come alive To come alive To come alive (To come alive) To come alive To come alive To come alive To pierce the vein of the sacred and profane Poor science, in service of a faith But who will bear the mark of Cain? To come alive To come alive To come alive (To come alive) To come alive To come alive To come alive
