too much to ask lyrics – bad religion

a refreshing plunge
a drink of platable water
a deep inspiration on a warm summer day
a safe stroll in the middle of the road community
a neighbor who in times of need will not turn away
i ain’t no politiciam
i am a citizen
and i wonder if i’m living too far out of bounds
community protection
rehibilitation
police that serve without legitimate right to maim
global aareness
ecological guilt
cultural and environmental awakening
i ain’t no optimist
i try to be a realist
and i think that we are living too far out of bounds
is it too much to ask?
could it be the world is shrinking?
i can see the walls closing in
no one can take much for granted anymore
remote control
three cars for every family
corruption at the expense of the simple majority
a violent crash
a plunder of the third world
any wretched ploy that bolsters our economy
i ain’t no blind supporter
i’m a conscious citizen
and i know that we are living too far out of bounds
is it too much to ask?
can we keep the earth from sinking?
i can see the walls closing in
no one can take much for granted anymore
(you better not take it for granted anymore)
i’m not taking nothing for granted anymore
