Rancid

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 »

(Oi oi oi) I figured out the problem yeah the problem is you
You didn't see us comin' now there's nothin' you can do
Times are gonna change, change or step aside
It's my point of view that took you by surprise

The sun's comin' up yeah the new dawn arrives
The generation standing stand with anger in their eyes
No love in the city 'cause there's no connection
Been stricken with disease a racial infection

I'm a battering ram comin' through to you
In every alleyway on every avenue

Actions could erase all the fear that we suffer
People segregated no one understands each other
He's a different color but we're the same kid
I will treat him like my brother he will treat me like his

Well an eye for an eye yeah a tooth for a tooth
Brother against brother should be singin' with the group
The inner cities burnin' yeah it's screamin' black and blue
The power and the passion of a million youth

I'm a battering ram comin' through to you
In every alleyway on every avenue
Oi oi oi 

(Oi oi oi) I figured out the problem yeah the problem is you
You din't see us comin' now there's nothin' you can do
He's a different color but we're the same kid
I will treat him like my brother he will treat me like his
All of the blood that spills of all the guts that fly
The media paints a picture that stains all of us
Pits dogs against cats now who is responsible
The power in the issue the force is unstoppable

I'm a battering ram comin' through to you
In every alleyway on every avenue
Oi oi oi 

(Oi oi oi) I'm a battering ram comin' through to you
In every alleyway on every avenue

(Oi oi oi) I'm a battering ram comin' through to you
In every alleyway on every avenue
(Oi oi oi)
