Rancid - Avenues & Alleyways Lyrics




I figured out the problem yea 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 coming up yea the new dawn arrives
New 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 yea a tooth for a tooth
Brother against brother should be singin' with the group
The inner cities burnin' yea 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

I figured out the problem yea the problem is you
You didn'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 the blood that spills of all the guts that fly
The media paints a picture that that stings all our eyes
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

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

    Hey Mr. Brett, you could include a track list so users like me don't have to do it for you. Make an intern do it, takes like five minutes if you've got the physical record in front of you.

    Those Dirty Kids

    FAdamsXII did you just ask a record label to post YouTube videos of your band without even listening to them

    FAdamsXII

    No dipshit, I didn't. Can you not fucking read?
    I asked them to post a tracklist or playlist for Out come the wolves by Rancid. Its not exactly rocket science but Epitaph kind of sucks at it. If Fat can do it for all of their streams, Epitaph can also.

    martk fartkerson

    daaaaaaaaamn -- oi oi oi!! hahaha

    Caio Paes Ramalho

    Buying the record might help ya! Hahaha
