Until the break of dawn
Life life
Cannot go by the letter
Time time
Prozac can make it better
Noise noise
Any kind will do
Can you feel it slip away
When it's all on you

Crime crime
Rockin' like Janet Reno
Time time
Eighteen and life in Chino
Freud Freud
All along it's true
Well you'll see there comes a day
Catches up to you

Knock down the walls, it's alive in you
Knock down the place, you're alone it's true
Knock down the world, it's alive in you
You gotta keep your head up through it all
You're gonna
Bust out on it - original prankster
Break out yeah - original yeah
Bust out on it - original prankster
You never stop now, stop now
That's what the main man say

You know it smells like shit
Goddamn
Tag team the double header
Son of Sam
Fire always makes it better
Navigate
With style and aplomb
Cause wherever you're at
That's the tip you's on

Lies, lies
Says he's down in the Bahamas
Tries tries
Bangin' little hoochie mamas
No way
None of this is true
Well he'll see there comes a day
When the joke's on you yeah

Knock down the walls, it's alive in you
Knock down the place, you're alone it's true
Knock down the world, it's alive in you
You gotta keep your head up through it all
You're gonna
Bust out on it - original prankster
Break out yeah - original yeah
Bust out on it - original prankster
You never stop now, stop now
That's what the main man say

Dime dime
So good to see ya
Nine nine
Don't want to be ya
Crime crime
Fine sensimilla

    General CommentThis is a cool song I have to say and just becuase its has a riff based verse, doesn`t mean its not Offspring (^_^) Its a lot of fun to play like most offspring is too. Well the feel i got from the song and video is that its about some guy or the type of people that commit crimes, lie all the time and are assholes generally.

    General Commentheh I believe the offspring's concept was to get their music heard and have fun in the process.. i don't think they give a fuck if you, or anyone else don't like their music or accuse them of selling out? neh? yeh.

    General CommentExactly. Just because the song is fun doesn't mean it has no meaning. This song is actually very well written and has good lyrics.

    General CommentHaha, good lyrics? The lyrics are pretty mediocre. There's very little meaningful content or thought-provoking substance.

    General CommentEighteen and life in Chino...Does Chino, California have a prison? This is another veiled warning. One of those catchy tunes that punches you when you read the lyrics. These guys are smarter than your average bears.

    General Commentwell, yes. Dexter does have a PhD in Microbiology. I'd say they're pretty smart.

    General Commentthis song has the same exact beat as pretty fly and is even more catchy. the song is another piece of satire, as it is a sarcastic view on some idiot who acts like a tough guy to get his way

    General Commenti dont get most of this song..but there is something ihave come up with for
    "son of sam, fire always makes it better"
    this song was released at a similar time to when the band "son of sam"... son of sam is a supergroup with davey havok from AFI in lead vocals....as dexter is a good friend of davey's i beleive he is saying "son of sam "(as in the band) "fire always makes it better" (the fact that davey is in it makes it better..as AFI stands for a fire inside)....
    yeah well thats the only sense i could make out of it
