lyrics

TRIBUTE

One beer left to go
Better barter it for one more load
Capitalism’s lost its cause
Been exposed for all its fatal flaws
It wouldn’t matter anyway
I spent my last dime just to have this place to stay
Without it what then would I do
Come knock on your door, ask if I can stay with you

We could party all night long
Sing that same old Rancid song
Till everyone woke up and kicked us out

And we would head out to the street
Just 2 punk rock kids on just 4 feet
I bet we could make it to last call
You yell to me from half way down the hall
You try to run, but I catch you on the stairs
The elevator’s been broke for 2 years
Hit the pavement at the same time
Puffing on 2 joints it’s so Sublime

No one knows what happened next
We live our lives with NOFX
And violate code 311
Driving like a Mad Caddie, killing Suicide Machine
But I believe Rastaman, we’ll be just fine

Remember way back in that day
That beautiful place, magic time
I wish we could have stayed
Remembering what we used to do
The fun we had, I wish I could go back with you

We could laugh a lot again
I would not know where to begin
It feels like so much has gone
But what I know, I know for sure
You’re still my brother I’m still yours
And until the end of time, we’ll be just fine
