Indestructible
And I know, Iím indestructible
And I know, Iím indestructible
Tonight!

Break down! Caught tell me its not true
Itís a shakedown! Come on tell me who are you
Itís so fake now, everything I see right through
Iím ashamed now, to say I ever know you

See the greater minions make a move on their feet
Kill them anywhere from here even from the head
Girls that seem so hot and Iím just sitting here laughing
Iím gonna keep going up, I canít get distracted

And I know, Iím indestructible
And I know, Iím indestructible
Tonight!

Lay back! Why cant you all come and save me
And you will never betray me
And Iíll give back everything that you gave me
And I know that no one can never ever contain me

And I, walking I walk down to some American consumer, nah
And Iím dancing now to a whole different drummer
And I keep listening to the great Joe Strummer
cause through music, we can live forever

And I know, Iím indestructible
And I know, Iím indestructible
Tonight!back to top
Fall Back Down
Donít worry about me Iím gonna make it alright
Got my enemies cross haired and in my sight
I take a bad situation gonna make it right
In the shadows of darkness I stand in the light
Ya see itís my style and Iíll keep true
I had a bad year but I got through
Iíve been knocked out, beat down, black and blue
Sheís not the one coming back for you
Sheís not the one coming back for you

If I fall back down
Youíre gonna help me back up again
If I fall back down
Youíre gonna be my friend

If I fall back down
Youíre gonna help me back up again
If I fall back down
Youíre gonna be my friend

It takes disaster to learn a lesson
Weíre gonna make it through the darkest nights
Some people pretend to make a reason
But that one make everything alright

Well the rest of times they donít faze me
Even if I look and act pretty crazy
On my way down she betrayed me
Now my vision is no longer hazy
See Iím very lucky to have my crew
They stood by me when she flew
Iíve been knocked out, beat down, black and blue
Sheís not the one coming back for you
Sheís not the one coming back for you

If I fall back down
Youíre gonna help me back up again
If I fall back down
Youíre gonna be my friend

If I fall back down
Youíre gonna help me back up again
If I fall back down
Youíre gonna be my friend

If I fall back down
Youíre gonna help me back up again
If I fall back down
Youíre gonna be my friend

If I fall back down
Youíre gonna help me back up again
If I fall back down
Youíre gonna be my friend

If I fall back down
Youíre gonna help me back up again
If I fall back down
Youíre gonna be my friend

If I fall back down
Youíre gonna help me back up again
If I fall back down
Youíre gonna be my friendback to top
Red Hot Moon
Under the red hot moon
You take a bus downtown to the graveyard shift tonight
Under the red hot moon
You take a bus downtown to the graveyard shift tonight

K.C from Campbell California
She got a bad reputation that she didnt ask for
And shes waitin for an escape now, that escape is called the 164
Now K.C she dont want to admit where she is from
And K.C she wants to run run run
Shes a punk rocker she dont trust no one
On a sautre bus all alone

Under the red hot moon
You take the bus downtown to the graveyard shift tonight
Under the red hot moon
You take the bus downtown to the graveyard shift tonight

K.C was never caught up
Like the rest of the rats in a fuckin maze
Check me out she said im in a concrete jungle
Im an individual and you are stuck in a haze
Oh Hell no she knows what the truth is
Cuz she said so and she knows who her friends are
So fuck you dont get no closer
It will only make her run far away

Under the red hot moon
You take a bus downtown to the graveyard shift tonight
Under the red hot moon
You take a bus downtown to the graveyard shift tonight

I knew K.C's brother preatty well
Lets say we spent a long time hangin out
And i always thought he said that shed be the one
To get outta here and make a life for herself
But when we found her in little league park
In the dugouts it was cold damp and dark
And no one knew why she wouldnt wake up
I think she finially made it back home now

Under the red hot moon
You take a bus downtown to the graveyard shift tonight
Under the red hot moon
You take a bus downtown to the graveyard shift tonight

One time for your mind, two times for your soul
Three four the graveyards and the money I faud
Dipped out in the city were the sun burns slow
No hope its a pitty i cant say no
Its not my time to go, Its not my time to die
The last thing i want is for my mother to cry
It was love at light, that very first night
Things have never been the same since i took my first flight
The way I live my life I love I live lavish
You lost me from the start you lose youll never have this
Untouched, unleashed back up you dont want it
Stick him for his cash his bad its how life flew
I take two and pass, I'll take two and blast
Buster mother fucker im out on the smash
Dipped out Im high as fuck Im outta control
Lets bounce, rock , skate man im ready to roll

Under the red hot moon.... Under the red hot moonback to top
David Courtney
this is, by far, the best song off of indestructible.
lars frederickson rulez!

CHORUS:

well all you motherfuckers, criminals will be suckers
if you dont step aside for david courtney!
(x2)

well if you being bold, and you must be told, youll feel wack upon your back
from a knuckleduster made of gold.
if you do the job...loyal to the mob, you'll be sorted and rewarded and reward souht of france in the sun
well if you pay your debt you wont regret please take me up on my advice!
cause vengeance will be delivered door to door, and right on time.

(then chorus)

cuban cigars, silver jaguars, brand new suits are filled with loot, hes looking wicked and astout.
make no bones he sais, villians lend there ears, hes a legend in the underworld, robin hood to the poor.

well if you pay your debt you wont regret please take me up on my advice!
cause vengence will be delivered door to door, and right on time.

(2nd last chorus, which ends in "thats right,")

(guitar solo)

TIM'S INTERLUDE:

listen up all you skagheads, sewer rats, gangsters, villians and whores,
the dark figures from the shadows, crept up from behind, where, they brandished a gun, pointed it
directly at his face,and they shuddered at the site, when the words were spoken,"Go ahead son, but your makin a big mistake,"
as the coolness of the nights, reflected off the cobblestone roads, and silence took over, he said...
"DO YOU KNOW, WHO THE FUCK I AM?!"

song ends with chorus sung, last time.back to top
Start Now
enjoy. (world peace)

another lesson has been learned a mist these modern times strangers in
the mist appear now there's war all the time systimatically gonna
destroy commit another atrocity aggressors are in their places man made
catastrophys well i'm not lookin for a fight now and i don't care who's
wrong or right now so release the dove into flight now so we can start
right now start right now a small key gonna open the door across the
border to a new land and in the new land the sand storm roars under a
spell there's a ghost of a man on the back of many warriors they stand
their prayers tall upon deaf ears machiavelli owns a machine gun now
and a shill in a mask and a puppeteer humility has no play in this case
in a big game of chess for vs all hostility explodes in a mess now you
got blood all over the wall and clarity turns to dark blindfolded
prisoners of war solidarity on the razors edge boy what? your a big
punchernow right? i don't fuckin think so!back to top
Out of Control
Artist/Band - Rancid
Album - Indestructable
Song - Out Of Control

Let's go,

The prophet speaks his language reeks,
Survival dormant, schemes and sneaks,
His blood is weak, he's an oil sheik,
Information leak, operations wait,

There's no security in the battlefield,
No Armageddon strength, no human shields,
A brand-new country, they're gonna build,
One more riot this I will,

Stay outta control,
It's outta control,
Stay outta control,
We're outta control, we're outta control,
We're outta control, we're outta control,

Chopped-up waste in the basketball,
Pick up your shovel and do what you're told,
The probe is on the light side of grass
To the middle of nights, to the middle of homes,

Well, I'm done joking, are you a miss?,
Deliberate line and recklessness,
Don't keep questioning the I.M.S.,
Resist, resist, resist, resist,

Stay outta control,
It's outta control,
Stay outta control,
We're outta control, we're outta control,
We're outta control, we're outta control!

Control,
Control,
We're outta control,back to top

Arrested in Shanghai
Yeah?
They were sure I was guilty, but I committed no crime
They said: confessions bring lenience, so that put me on the line
So I, protest the massacres at the Talliman Square
My friends say yo, stay away man, you better not go fucking back there
Oh.
Watch this
One night I might write about my opinions about the state
And the freedom of expression they would never tolerate
And the, military secrets that I never did steal
I didnít start no violence, no, and there was nobody that I killed
No.
So I had a clear account of all abusers of power
And the memories of homeland all gone sour
And I only got one weapon, itís so plain for me to see
My only weapon I call, poetry

And I donít even know why
The truth seems like a lie
In my cell there is no sky
When I was arrested in Shanghai

Now, in a world of privilege I was not born
But, the devotion of freedom and liberty I was sworn
So, every emotion is studied, watched their control
Who gets paid, who gets disciplined, who gets born
So, transmitting beams my coordinates, anywhere on Earth
And, as radio waves, surveillance, satellite bursts
Open up your skull and let some knowledge come in
Ya, crack open the cranium and let awareness begin
Oh.

And I donít even know why
The truth seems like a lie
In my cell there is no sky
When I was arrested in Shanghai
When I was arrested in Shanghai
When I was arrested in Shanghai

Ghost Band
rancid-ghost band

Woooooooooh
Ghost band, ghost band,
There's a ghost band, girl, playing our songs now,
Ghost band, ghost band,
There's a ghost band, girl, playing our song

And they knew all the lyrics by heart, now,
And they play in the perfect key,
And their tombstones are silhouetted,
And the band I can barely see,
Well our spirit fades, hard and cheated,
When the funeral's over, I can't leave it,
Everyone's going home, I'm defeated.

Woooooooooh
Ghost band, ghost band,
There's a ghost band, girl, playing our songs now,
Ghost band, ghost band,
There's a ghost band, girl, playing our song

And the energy's so overwhelming,
And the echo from the crowd is deafening,
And the music conveyed is convincing,
And the world doesn't seem so daunting,
And the shimmer of light tells you secrets,
In the moon, the silhouettes in an instance,
And we are seen in perfect cadence.

Woooooooooh
Ghost band, ghost band,
There's a ghost band, girl, playing our songs now,
Ghost band, ghost band,
There's a ghost band, girl, playing our songback to top
Tropical London
If you lose me, you lose a good thing, that's one thing I know for sure.
If you lose me, girl, you lose a good thing, that's one thing I know for sure.

When you were sick, girl, I held your hand,
When you were troubled I tried to understand,
Staying with you I did anything I can,
Cuz losing you was not part of the plan.

Melbourne is a tropical London,
I met a girl in a tropical London,
Abandoned in a tropical London, Oh no, oh no,

If you lose me, you lose a good thing, that's one thing I know for sure.
If you lose me, girl, you lose a good thing, that's one thing I know for sure.

A souvenir reminds me of you,
Every day I catch a glimpse of us too,
I'm the one going through the rescue,
That's why I'm confused you withdrew.

Melbourne is a tropical London
I met a girl in a tropical London
Abandoned in a tropical London
Oh no, oh no,
If you lose me, you lose a good thing, that's one thing I know for sure.
If you lose me, girl, you lose a good thing, that's one thing I know for sure.

Medication, met you in
Authication, it's a
Hazardness, valley of deception,
Walk alone,
But it was not my intention,
Not my invention,
And now my heart's been ripped wide open!

Melbourne is a tropical London
I met a girl in a tropical London
Abandoned in a tropical London
Oh no, oh no,

Roadblock
Go!
Go!
Go!

Walk into the party, didn't know who you are,
Said quick quick on the living room floor,
All I know is about three fucking chords,
Drumkit, bass, and electric guitar.

We're headed out to another show,
Don't know which way it's gonna go,
Don't even think about it,
Don't even care,
When the roadblock's in the way, we're gonna run around it,
When the stop sign's in the way, we're gonna run through it all right,
All right,
When all the punks come out tonight!

Go to work, go to school, get a fucking job,
Sit at home like a fucking slob,
I prowl the street like I'm the fucking law,
All too crazy, tripped and crawl,
Depression can't cut me out of the music,
So I choose it,
I use it,
I won't fucking lose it!

We're headed out to another show,
Don't know which way it's gonna go,
Don't even think about it,
Don't even care,
When the roadblock's in the way, we're gonna run around it,
When the stop sign's in the way, we're gonna run through it all right,

We're not fucking around,

Born Frustrated
Is it you?
Is it you who's been orchestrated?
Is it you?
Is it you who's born frustrated?

Hey! Hey! Hey!
Is it you?
Hey! Hey! Hey!
Is it you?
Is it you who's born frustrated?

American shopping malls,
Where a product is sold and bought here,
Euthanizing the public,
While the dead walk the escalators,
They come from the loudspeakers,
They hear a subliminal message,
An ad entices you, the consumer,
And there's no way to find it.

Is it you?
Is it you who's been orchestrated?
Is it you?
Is it you who's born frustrated?

Hey! Hey! Hey!
Is it you?
Hey! Hey! Hey!
Is it you?
Is it you who's born frustrated?

Is this human freedom,
Hedonistic excess?
Junky consumerism,
Mass-production, toxic sickness,
Everyone is wearing now,
Plastic masks that they hide behind,
Marketing massive sales of nothing,
Everything is selling.

Is it you?
Is it you who's been orchestrated?
Is it you?
Is it you who's born frustrated?

Hey! Hey! Hey!
Is it you?
Hey! Hey! Hey!
Is it you?
Is it you who's born frustrated?

The arrogance,
Lost me with nonsense,
Well, it's so aggressive,
Yet so repulsive,
Well, it's a noxious culture,
Of the swarming vultures!
And I an imposter,
And he's coming to get you!

Is it you?
Is it you who's been orchestrated?
Is it you?
Is it you who's born frustrated?

Ivory Coast
For twenty four hours on the Ivory Coast
They release the soldiers from their posts
And they gave them champagne for a toast to pay dividends To the countries host
They say tonight you can leave your home
But tommorow its gunna be they way of the gun
And the curfew wont allow you to roam roam roam
And the bullets will let you know
When the bad dog comes round your door

Who is the killer, Who is the killer
Stone cold killer, Food for the trigger

Theyll shoot you down right on sight
If your out in the wrong time of night
In a civil war theres no civil rights
In the day of the dead run for your life
They say tonight you can leave your home
But tommorow its gunna be the way of the gun
And the curfew wont allow you to roam roam roam
And the bullets will let you know
When the bad dog comes round your door

Who is the killer, Who is the killer
Stone cold killer, Food for the trigger

And the trenches are dug
And the bones they do shiver
And the taste of war is so cold and bitter
And the human race is the face of the killer
The loss of life is rarley considered
They say tonight you can leave your home
But tommorow its gunna be the way of the gun
And the curfew wont allow you to roam roam roan
And the bullets will let you know
When the bad dog comes round your door

Who is the killer, Who is the killer
Stone cold killer, Food for the trigger
