"Hyena" as written by and Bill Berry Michael Mills....
I'm money broke and it's no joke can't core use the rope this time (Hey!!)
Nuckel up buckel up the ride´s getting rough but I will not loose my mind (Hey!!)
I asked 'em if I could come in and the first thing they said was no (Hey!!)
If I can't come in that's mean that I can't come back that means I got nowhere to go

[Repeat x2]
I'm a hyena fighting for lion share
Sometimes the lions share ain't there

Absent from political authority an animal I've become (Hey !!)
Total disorder and confusion is the life style that I run (Hey !!)
Permit me to do what I want and I will I'm a nomad to travel (Hey !!)
Concrete class stone and gravel

[Repeat x2]
I'm a hyena fighting for lion share
Sometimes the lions share ain't there

Every time I turn around it´s the same sad story
Getting ganked I wish it could end in life's commissary
I'm a bad missionary with a wicked message I sent
Who can I trust in a world of greed
When I'm taught to take and not to give

Who can I trust when I'm taught to take and not to give

I'm money broke and it's no joke can't core use the rope this time (Hey!!)
Nuckel up buckel up the ride´s getting rough but I will not loose my mind (Hey!!)
Permit me to do what I want and I will I'm a nomad to travel (Hey!!)
Concrete class stone and gravel

I'm a hyena fighting for lion share
Sometimes the lions share ain't there
Sometimes the lions share ain't there...shit

    General CommentDelicious song. The guitar at the intro sounds amazing. The words are good. I guess it's about how impossible it is to get out of poverty.

    General CommentInstead of hating, why don't you try teaching? Kindness through understanding.

    General CommentAww...I'd like to give you a hug Amoeba.

    Great song, awesome lyrics. Rancid sold out? Nah, they're still the best storytellers in punk rock.

    General CommentIt's about his nomadic street kid life and the angst it caused. He's "absent from political authority" because he has nothing to lose. He's just some street punk with practically no identity.
    People were dying all around him... shit happened.
    When he says "sometimes the lion share ain't there"
    he means that sometimes he's left without a meal or maybe drugs whether it would've been stolen, given, or sold to him.
