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 »

Ah, it's burning up!

The common man doesn't suffer pain like this
Only the soul that has never been kissed
Let us adore our beautiful son
He's ridin' on the river of Babylon 

Oh, burn it up, ah shoot it up, bring on the brightness
See the son of god is comin' up and I see a likeness
Internalize the lunacy of the misery is showin'
When you're brought up you're caught up in a system that's goin' 

No one answers no one takes that call from you
No one answers no one takes that call from you
No one answers no one takes that call from you, you, you, you 

Junkie man tell me what your story is
Junkie man tell me what your story is
Junkie man tell me what your story is
Junkie man tell me what your story is

What do, what do, what do, what do I desire
Some parent's house is on fire
Oh slowly the house gonna burn to the ground
The neighborhood will watch without a sound

Will someone be a witness please tell me that he's crazy
But he's not and they know that, they can't get him, he's not crazy
Beat lock him knock him take him away his authority
Hit 'em, ship 'em, club 'em submitted conformity 

No one answers no one takes that call from you
No one answers no one takes that call from you
No one answers no one takes that call from you, you, you, you 

Junkie man tell me what your story is
Junkie man tell me what your story is
Junkie man tell me what your story is
Junkie man tell me what your story is

My hand went blind
You were in the vein clairvoyant
You were in the vein clairvoyant
My hand went blind
I make love to my transistor, my transistor
And my transparency from the balcony
I looked out on the big field, on the big field
It opens like the cover of an old bible
And out come the wolves, out come the wolves
Their paws trampling in the snow the alphabet
I stand on my head and watch it all go away

Burnin' up, shootin' up bring on the brightness
See the son of god is comin' up and there is a likeness
Internalize the lunacy the misery is showin' when
You're brought up and caught up in a system that is goin'

No one answers no one takes that call from you
No one answers no one takes that call from you
No one answers no one takes that call from you, you, you, you 

Junkie man tell me what your story is
Junkie man tell me what your story is
Junkie man tell me what your story is
Junkie man tell me what your story is
