The ending isn't here
There's somethin' wrong
But it's comin' real soon
I lock step, I'm gone
I said the feeling isn't fear
There's something wrong
It's just telling you to move
I lock step, I'm gone

There's a fire on the corner and it's never gonna stop
Killer in the neighborhood never got caught
I lock up my door step out and I'm gone
Waitin' for the buses but the buses won't come

All the docks are quiet
There's somethin' wrong
And there's no ships comin' in
I lock step, I'm gone
Where there once was a riot
There's somethin' wrong
There's a whole lot of nothin'
I lock step I'm gone

The stop signs broken and the meters goin'down
Wild dogs are runnin' themselves into the ground
Everything was clear for that moment in time
If I don't come back well throw me a line

The ending isn't here
But it's coming real soon
The feeling isn't fear
It's just telling you to move

The stop signs broken and the meters goin'down
Wild dogs are runnin' themselves into the ground
Everything was clear for that moment in time
If I don't come back well throw me a line

Well the docks are quiet
There's something wrong
And there's no ships comin' in
I lock step, I'm gone
Where there once was a riot
There's a whole lot of nothin'
There's a whole lot of nothin'
There's a whole lot of nothin'

    General CommentTim Armstrong grew up in a very rough part of California the type of place that in every dark ally theres a dealer or a group of punked up teenagers who'll kick your ass for no reason.
    'I lock my door step out and i'm gone dont bother waitin for the busses cause the busses wont come.' that says a lot there.
    I like this song so much because i live in a same type of area in england.

    General Commentthere are people who would do that anywhere, in any part of any city, in any small town in the countryside of any place. just because you dont see things happening everyday doesnt mean they dont happen. anyone can get banged up or stabbed or shot anywhere, it aint something to be proud of, maybe something to write a song about.
    anyway i dont think the bay area/oakland whatever sounds all that nuts. then again i dont think London is very hardcore either.

    General CommentSongs about living in a rough area, not much happening, everyone's afraid to leave the house. Nothing going on. I live just outside chicago so I know how it can be, but life's rough everywhere. No one's really got the easy end of it.
