i give you nothing (tom clement…) lyrics – bad religion

hey, everybody’s looking but they never can see,
all the angst, corruption and the dishonesty.
think about the times and places you’ve never known,
you’re a man-swarm atom and yet you’re alone,
so i give you me, i give you nothing!
i give you me, i give you nothing!
so you got a place that you can call all your own,
but you make a habit of carrying the stone.
look around and ask someone if you are alive,
you’re a sidewalk cipher speaking prionic jive,
so i give you me, i give you nothing!
i give you me, i give you nothing!
respectable, despicable, it seems all the same.
now we realize that we have nothing to say.
if your reserve is weak, audacity complete.
ask yourself again, “do i deserve much from them?” no!
hey, everybody’s looking but they never can see,
all the angst, corruption and the dishonesty.
look around and ask someone if you are alive,
you’re a sidewalk cipher speaking prionic jive,
so i give you me, i give you nothing!
i said i give you me, i give you nothing!
