Fairfax Ghetto punk Lyrics


These are the lyrics to a few of my favorite songs. Some of these bands I saw live like Social Distortion and H2O. If there are any offensive lyrics here you can get lost. Cause I don't care.


"I was Wrong." by Social Distortion

When I was young, I was so full of fear.
I hid behind anger, held back the tears.
It was me against the world, I was sure I'd win.
But the world fought back punished me for my sins.
I felt so alone, so insecure.
I blamed you instead, and made sure I was heard.
They tried to warn me of my evil ways,
But I couldn't hear what they had to say

Chorus: I was wrong. Self destruction got me again.
I was wrong. I realize now that I was wrong

And I think about my loves. Well I've had a few
I'm sorry that I hurt them, Did I hurt you too?
I took what I wanted, put heart on the shelf.
But how can you love when you don't love yourself?
It was me against the world. I was sure I'd win.
The world fought back punished me for my sins.
And they tried to warn me of my evil ways,
But I Couldn't hear what they had to say

Chorus:

I grew up fast, I grew up hard.
Someting went wrong from the very start.
I was fighting everybody, I was fighting everything.
But the only one that I hurt was me.
I got society's blood running down my face.
Somebody help me get out of this place.
How could someone's bad luck last so long?
Until I realized that I was wrong.

Chorus: 2x:

"I want to Conquer the World." by Bad Religion

Hey brother christian with your high and mighty errand.
Your actions speak so loud I can't hear a word you're saying.
Hey sister bleeding heart with all of your compassion.
your labors soothe the hurt but can't assurge temptation.
Hey man of science with your perfect rules of measure.
Can you improve this place with the data that you gather?
Hey mother mercy can your loins bare fruit forever?
Is your fecundity a trammel or a treasure?

I want to conquer the world.
Give all the idiots a brand new religion.
Put an end to poverty, uncleanliness and toil.
Promote equality in all of my decisions.
With a quick wink of the eye, and a God you must be joking.

Hey Mr. diplomat with your worldly aspirations.
Did you see your children cry when you left them at the station?
Hey moral soldier you've got rightious proclaimations.
and precious tomes to fuel your pulpy confilgrations.

I want to conquer the world.
Give all the idiots a brand new religion.
Put an end to poverty, uncleanliness and toil.
Promote equality in all of my decisions.
I want to conquer the world.
Expose the culprits and feed them to the children.
I'll do away with air-pollution, then I'll save the whales.
We'll have peace on earth and global communion.
I want to conquer the world.

"Family Tree" by H2O

Roots. And don't forget your roots.
And don't forget your roots. And don't forget your roots.

I was thinkin' bout the good old times.
And all the people who helped me survive.
And who knows where I'd be
Without the branches of my family tree.

I was thinkin' bout friends who cared.
And all the times that we shared.
If I had the strength to be what I could be
Love and respect to the branches of my tree

Family tree

Roots. And don't forget your roots.
And don't forget your roots. And don't forget your roots.

I was thinkin' bout the good old times.
And all the people who helped me survive.
And who knows where I'd be
Without the branches of my family tree.

I was thinkin' bout the times we shared.
And all the times that I was scared.
Living and learning in the NYC.
Shout out's go out to my New York Family.

Family Tree

Roots. And don't forget your roots.
And don't forget your roots. And don't forget your roots.

"Salvation" by Rancid

Come on baby won't you show me what you got, yeah.
I want your salvation, whoa
Come on baby won't you show me what you got, yeah.
I want your salvation, whoa

There's a neighborhood called blackhawk, where all the rich people hide.
I was down on my luck workin' for the salvation army.
The shelter is where I reside.
Every day we'd drive into blackhawk to pick up the offerings.
Microwaves, refridgerators for the suffereing.

Come on baby won't you show me what you got, yeah.
I want your salvation, whoa
Come on baby won't you show me what you got, yeah.
I want your salvation, whoa

I can't believe these people live like kings.
Hidden estates adn diamond rings.
I'm a rat out on a mission
I'm in your front yard. Under suspition

Come on baby won't you show me what you got, yeah.
I want your salvation, whoa
Come on baby won't you show me what you got, yeah.
I want your salvation, whoa

I can't believe these people live like kings.
Hidden estates adn diamond rings.
I'm a rat out on a mission
I'm in your front yard. Under suspition

Come on baby won't you show me what you got, yeah.
I want your salvation, whoa
Come on baby won't you show me what you got, yeah.
I want your salvation, whoa


"Give You Nothing" by Bad Religion

Hey everybody's lookin' but they never can see,
all the angst, corruption, and the dishonesty.
Think about the times and places you've never known
you're a man-swarm atom, yet you're alone.

So I give you me. I give you nothing
I give you me, I give you nothing

So you gotta place that you can call your own,
but you've got a habit of carryin' the stone.
Look around and ask some one if you are alive,
you're a sidewalk cypher speaking pihronic jive.

So I give you me. I give you nothing
I give you me, I give you nothing

Respectable, dispicable it seems all the same.
Now we realize that we have nothing to save.
If your reserve is weak, audacity complete,
ask yourself again "do I deserve much from them?" No

So I give you me. I give you nothing
I give you me, I give you nothing



"No Face" by The Suicide Machines

I know, they know, don't drink, drive slow.
Insane, no brain, dressed down, look plain.
Big fun, no gun, no girl, gotta run.
Flipside, can't hide, can't think, SUICIDE.

Is there anybody out there? Does anybody know?
Is there anybody out there? Does anybody know?

Been there, no where, done that, get square
I'm hip, no lip, dig this, my tip.
punk's dead, see red, life sucks, dead end.
No place, no race there's still no face.

Is there anybody out there? Does anybody know?
Is there anybody out there? Does anybody know?

I don't know where I went wrong,
and I don't know if I can wait that long.
But every time I hear about another kid died,
through some senseless act of violence
it makes me wanna cry.

Is there anybody out there? Does anybody know?
Is there anybody out there? Does anybody know?



"And out come the wolves"
Jim Carroll
