    Everywhere I hear the sound
    Of marching, charging feet boy
    'Cause the summer's here
    And the time is right for
    Fighting in the street boy

    For you
    I'd be a soldier
    For you
    I'd bury friends
    For you
    I'll be your saviour
    For you
    I'll play pretend.

    Nauga,
    not Rancid

    If looks could kill they probably will
    In games without frontiers-wars without tears

    Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
    Go ahead and cheat and friend,
    Do it in the name of heaven,
    You can justify it in the end.
    There won't be any trumpets blowing
    Come the judgment day,
    On the bloody morning after
    One tin soldier rides away.

    I left my little town in Texas
    Spent three years in Illinois
    And when I got back I was disgusted
    I had a month old baby boy
    She took me to court, the judge said you’re stuck
    And man that’s nothing but buzzard luck

    She got the gold mine, I got the shaft.
    They split it right down the middle and then they give her the better half!

    Half the world hates
    What half the world does every day
    Half the world waits
    While half gets on with it anyway

    Half the world lives
    Half the world makes
    Half the world gives
    While the other half takes

    Half the world is
    Half the world was
    Half the world thinks
    While the other half does

    Half the world talks
    With half a mind on what they say
    Half the world walks
    With half a mind to run away

    Half the world lies
    Half the world learns
    Half the world flies
    As half the world turns

    Half the world cries
    Half the world laughs
    Half the world tries
    To be the other half

    Half of us divided
    Like a torn-up photograph
    Half of us are trying
    To reach the other half

    Half the world cares
    While half the world is wasting the day
    Half the world shares
    While half the world is stealing away



    Sorry, this song is so awesome (and topical) I just couldn't narrow it down. :D

    Six o'clock, TV hour, don't get caught in foreign tower
    Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn
    Lock him in uniform, book burning, bloodletting
    Every motive escalate, automotive incinerate
    Light a candle, light a motive, step down, step down
    Watch your heel crush, crush, uh-oh
    This means no fear, cavalier, renegade and steering clear
    A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies
    Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives, and I decline

    It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine

    I like to be in America
    OK by me in America
    Everything free in America
    For a small fee in America

    Oh but ain't that America, for you and me
    Ain't that America, we're something to see baby
    Ain't that America, home of the free, yeah
    Little pink houses for you and me, oh for you and me

    Some folks are born made to wave the flag
    Ooh, they're red, white and blue
    And when the band plays "Hail to the chief"
    Ooh, they point the cannon at you, Lord
    It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no senator's son, son
    It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no

    Four young chiquitas in Omaha
    Waitin' for the band to return from the show
    Feelin' good, feelin' right, it's Saturday night
    The hotel detective, he was outta sight
    Now these fine ladies, they had a plan
    They was out to meet the boys in the band
    They said, "Come on dudes, let's get it on"
    And we proceeded to tear that hotel down

    We're an American band
    We're an American band
    We're comin' to your town
    We'll help you party it down
    We're an American band

    Erase the video, we bribed the security guard
    The rooms are paid for but on whose credit card?
    We didn't make any phone calls,
    these towels aren't worth a thing
    Don't blame me if the TV's smashed
    It had it coming!

    I don't wanna argue, I ain't gonna budge
    Will you take this number down, before you call up the judge
    I ain't gonna argue, there's nothing to say
    Get me outta your starry eyes and be on your way

    Nauga,
    with apologies to The Records

    Money, it's a gas
    Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
    New car, caviar, four star daydream,
    Think I'll buy me a football team

    Sittin' and starin' out of the hotel window
    Got a tip they're gonna kick the door in again
    I'd like to get some sleep before I travel
    But if you got a warrant, I guess you're gonna come in

    I f***ed up again it's all my fault.
    So turn me around to face the wall.
    Read me my rights and tell me you have won
    'til it gets into my thick skull.

    Nauga,

    Yeah and it's up against the wall, redneck mother
    Mother who has raised her son so well
    He's thirty four drinkin' in a honky tonk
    Kickin' hippies' asses and raisin' hell

    Well,my daddy left home when I was three
    And he didn't leave much to ma and me
    Just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze
    Now, I don't blame him cause he run and hid
    But the meanest thing that he ever did
    Was before he left, he went and named me Sue

    Papa was a rolling stone,
    Where ever he laid his hat was his home
    And when he died, all he left us was alone

    Your teeth will start to go, dear,
    Your waist will start to spread.
    In twenty years or so, dear,
    I'll wish that you were dead.


    I'll never love you then at all
    The way I do today.
    So please remember,
    When I leave in december,
    I told you so in may.

    I looked in the mirror today
    My eyes just didn't seem so bright
    I've lost a few more hairs
    I think I'm going bald

    messed around and got lost
    They didn't care they were just dyin' to get off
    And it was life in the fast lane...

    I've been drivin' all night,
    My hand's wet on the wheel
    There's a voice in my head
    That drives my heel
    It's my baby callin',
    Says: I need you here
    And it's a half past four
    And I'm shifting gear

    Got those highway blues, can't you hear my motor runnin'
    Flyin' down the road with my foot on the floor
    All the way in town they can hear me comin'
    Ford's about to drop, she won't do no more
    And i smell my motor burnin'
    Underneath the hood is smoke
    Can't stop, and i can't stop
    Got to keep on movin' or i'll lose my mind

    Took a corner, side swiped a truck
    Crossed my fingers just for luck
    My fenders was clicking the guard rail post
    The guy beside me was white as a ghost
