Maybe we should have been listening to Bad Religion back in November:
Come forth bear witness
See the profit from your loss.
Beg for forgiveness
Only after you've tallied the cost.
What's right is wrong,
What's come has gone,
What's clear and pure is not so sure.
All promises become a lie,
All that's benign corrupts in time.
It came to me...
The fallacy of epiphany.
