The lyrics to this song, even though they were written years ago still hold up today. Nothing has changed, which is kind of sad. This song hits you hard with it's political message with very little subtlety, but it doesn't need it because the message is so strong and so frustrated. Bad Religion's best work.
From Bad Religion's album "No Control", the title track encompasses not only lead singer Greg Graffin's views on nature and science, in that we as humans have no control over nature, but also that those who seek to control other ultimately have no lasting control as their reigns cannot last.
This is one of my favorite Bad Religion songs, and it, along with other tracks on the album, show the progression of songwriting within the group - not only through more thoroughly composed songs, but with more complex vocal harmonies.
