In the darkest tunnel it's nice to see a light
Not just a headlight
Like the one that's heading right for me
It would be nice if things could turn out right
Turn out right yeah
Don't think I'll ever see the day

I must have done something wrong
Or maybe pissed off god

I think of Chinese food when I think of life
That's sweet and sour
My life is sweet as saccharine
You know 3 week old milk and grapes are not
Not the same, No
I am the one Johnny Carcinogen

I must have fucked with some witch
In turn she cursed me, cursed my life

At the end of the longest line
That's where I will always be
If you need to find me, just go to
The end of the longest line

But officer that was a yellow light
The light was red, son
Insubordination, reckless driving
I must be wrong, this can't be right
I don't belong, this world is much to dangerous
For someone lacking luck, like me

At the end of the longest line
That's where I will always be
If you need to find me, just go to
The end of the longest line

At the end of the longest line
That's where I will always be
At the end of the longest line

    General CommentThis songs about cocaine. Kinda means when shit gets tough, do drugs. Hence.. "At the end of the longest line, thats where i will always be" (referring to lines of crack).

    General CommentI never knew that NOFX sung this song. I just assumed that it was blink 182 which when i listened to it had good lyrics but sounded shit. But the propper nofx versions a whole lot better. I just assumed it was about a person who has been dealt the shitty end of the stick. And the end of the longest line just showed that he was so unlucky that he would always end up behind every one else. Though the drigs thing now I think of it makes way more sense.

    General CommentI think evilsheep's initial view of the song was correct. If you look at lines like,
    "I must have done something wrong
    Or maybe pissed off god" it's like he's singing about karma, and since he pissed of God he's getting the shaft in life, being at the end of the longest line.

    General Commentugh....the song is fucking about drugs because its about drugs. you are a fucking moron for saying why the fuck is everysong about drugs. alot of songs are about drugs because they are about drugs. At the beginning of this video he fucking snorts a fucking hella fucking long ass line of coke or crank, im hella thinking it is crank simply because they have no songs titled with cocaine yet they have three on speed.
