Rancid - As Wicked Lyrics

I saw an old man on the street
he was in a dumpster lookin' for somethin' to eat
he moved so slow like a dyin' dream
like a machinist who got caught in the machine

I saw this lady and she was cryin'
she said it's hard when someone you love is dyin'
I saw this kid who was about 5 years old
he was in the park all alone he was cold

there's something coming around
as wicked as it may seem
as wicked as anything could be

I know this girl she's barely alive
she's all haggard she's only twenty-five
she said she never had a friend before
I said "hey girl I'll be your friend but who's keepin' score"
I sawthis other little girl on the phone
her mother comforts her from far from home
the little girl was very hesitant
her best friend lie dead on the pavement

I always end up back on the hill
lookin' down at the landfill
I always go there when I can
my friend Marty said Tim you're a lucky man

  19. Austin Slater

    @ThisIsStupid1024 emo was in its very early days untill people found out they could act sad and sing depressed lyrics with pop friendly music playing in the background to make money. thus emo seprerated from punk. Punks more do something about it lets get in the street and protest and make things better for ourselves emos more sit in the corner cut and bitching about things they dont have the balls to atempt to change. most emos like the attention and are in no way actually depressed.

  20. thecage6

    Where is this live from?

  21. TELEFREAK10121122

    Tim ain't a man... He's a god!

    ChefKen CookYou

    really ...a god..you need some more purpose in life if thats what you think


    Dunno where my whole 'life purpose' factors into the whole inspiration thing but whatever man.

  22. karma col

    I love this band.

  23. RockinRustle

    originally, yes emo was a subculture of punk, real emo is a subculture of punk, however what is labeled as emo now, is neither emo nor punk. its pop. pop rock at best.

    some are from the rancid EP, the destruction demos, or the radio radio radio ep.
    a lot of those b sides were just released on their rarities cds, but theres a lot that are bootlegs on youtube that arent on any cd.

  41. a1l2y3s4s

    This song is on "out come the wolves". Also you got to get the first album if you don't have it. Its just called Rancid.

  42. Parley454

    Good song, I'm just wondering whats going on though, I have indestructable, life won't wait, out come the wolves and the album with radio ( is that self titled ? ) on it, but I have found a couple of videos for songs I haven't heard. Maybe they didn't play these when I saw them, but it sounds new to me. What album is this song on ?
