Rats in the Hallway

Rancid Buy

FAVORITE (1 fan)


Rancid is an American punk rock band formed in Berkeley, California in 1991. Founded by 80s punk veterans Tim Armstrong and Matt Freeman, both of whom previously played in the highly influential ska punk band Operation Ivy, Rancid is credited—along with Green Day and The Offspring—for reviving mainstream interest in punk rock in the United States during the mid-1990s. Unlike Green Day and The Offspring however, Rancid remained signed to an independent record label and retained much of its original fan-base, most of which was connected to its underground roots. more »

Knock knock
Come in
You want to fight
I'm gonna win
I'll take you out
In a minute
Step in my flat
See what's in it 

I live in the land of welfare state 
My flat used to be section eight
Now it's a rat infested cocaine run
My whole worlds plays like a broken drum 

Drunken bum
Yeah yeah yeah
Rats in the hallway again 

Get up get out go ahead and ride away
Sit up our bed up your bed to lay
Kick up our rip up this place apart 
Even when I'm finished I'm back at the start I'm out of line
At Adeline St. heat don't keep the crooked beat four am
No waves breaking what's left of the pm the am has taken 

Drunken bum 
Yeah yeah yeah
Rats in the hallway again 

Outside my gate my crew is drinking a forty
Oz the asked my if there's still rats in the hallway
I said somethings ain't like the weather
They never change for the better
This girl came up to me she said she would do me no harm
Rolled up her sleeve and shoved me the tracks on her arm
I said what's your name she said Mya
She said Tim, want to take you higher 

Junkie drunken 
Yeah yeah yeah
Rats in the hallway again 

Zombie walking kid out on his own with no morals
Mr. High leaves the body in comes mr withdrawal
Pain is the only thing the body will alow
The kid wants to dance the gangsters knows how 

Johnny bought some shit down on market
Street shoot up boot up the human target
He hit the dirty spike when he hit the scene
It's easy to stay dirty when nothing is clean johnny´s a writer 

Who tags up jackel jackel just clamped on unclampable shackels
Rout up shoot up some dope to go
Like legal currency it's money it's like that
Rat tat tat kid got shot point blank in the back my land lord said 
Not to be bumming he was on cocaine stoop and he had it coming he had it coming?
He was only twelve years old he was in the blizzard he got shot for being cold 
It don't seem right tonight hit the lights alright
Watch the roaches run into the darkest room

[Repeat x2]
Drunken bum
Yeah yeah yeah
Rats in the hallway again
