Submission Complete Lyrics

by Bad Religion

Dedication is the price you pay
Initiated are coddled and caged
Before you walk, as soon as you crawl
Hope is pointless when you're stuck in the trawl

Fuck the freshman lectures and blandishments
They just betray impoverished accomplishments
The puppet masters fear originality
They tighten up the tethers and they shackle your feet
Submission complete

Young recruits never have a chance
Enticed to the drill, admonished to dance
Early to rise and early to shine
Life is long but the end is nigh

Break the guilty trammels from yesteryear
Remember how rejuvenation conquers all fears
Lonely opportunists take commanding roles
And hawk ultimatums so their weakness won't show
The sad reflection of dead ambition
You live for nothing, submission complete

Yeah, break the guilty trammels from yesteryear
Remember how the fate of failure makes it all clear
The lonely opportunists take commanding roles
And hawk ultimatums so their weakness won't show

The sad reflection of dead ambition
You live for nothing, expectation, indoctrination
Life's damnation, submission complete
Dying on your feet, submission complete
A total defeat
