Bad Religion – Candidate Lyrics

[Verse 1]
As I walk along this road paved with human kindness
I can never forget the price you've paid
I'm an actor on a role, an artificial virus
I'm your daddy, I'm your disgrace
I say kid just move along
We don't want it, don't need it
Your politics just breed despair
I salute an empty flag of ancient tribalism
And trust me nobody cares

[Chorus]
For I am your candidate
I am bloody lips and makeup
I'm your caliphate opioids and mutilation
A celebrity and my name is competition
I've come to bear your pain (Bear your pain)
And I can make it go away, I'll make it go away, I'll make it go away

[Verse 2]
Believers, dupes, and clowns, I want you all to gather 'round
To glorify ignorance and fear
I dispense misinformation to a post-truth generation
My darlings, don't shed a tear

[Chorus]
For I am your candidate
I am bloody lips and makeup
I'm your caliphate opioids and revelation
An hermaphrodite in restrooms and service stations
I truly feel your pain (Feel your pain)
And I can make it go away, I'll make it go away, I'll make it go away
