Dearly Beloved – Bad Religion

Climbing the pulpit steps before an eager congregation
The while praying came a wicked inspiration
Brothers, sisters this is what he said:

Dearly beloved, dearly beloved, dearly beloved,
(Make no mistake despite our traits I’ve seldom seen evidence of genes)
I can’t relate to you, I can’t relate to you

He was the kind of guy who’d always go right out of his way
But more before that crazy notion leapt right into his head
And stubbornly crept into every mad perception
I can’t deny a funny feeling when he said

Dearly beloved, dearly beloved, dearly beloved,
(Make no mistake despite our traits I’ve seldom seen evidence of genes)
I can’t relate to you, I can’t relate to you

Dearest in memoriam – set phasers to stun
And grab yourself a neighbors’ skeleton to lean upon
Did you know him in life? – one filled with regret
So soon we all forget – we ever met
Do you know my name? – sing a light refrain
For a man estranged – I won’t deny that I’m inclined to isolate

Dearly beloved, dearly beloved, dearly beloved,
(Make no mistake despite our traits I’ve seldom seen evidence of genes)
I can’t relate to you, I can’t relate to you
I can’t relate to you, I can’t relate to you, I can’t relate to you
