Bussiness man, come shake my hand, show me numbers that I understand
Your my candle, I'm your burnin' wick
Two sides comin' in quick

Say goodbye when you see me sign
Now I'm crucified
Crucify me
Crucify me
Crucify me

The ground is fertile and the grass is green
So many things to be seen, so many bands to be heard
Just for once can I be ignored

Say goodbye when you see me sign
Now I'm crucified
Crucify me
Crucify me
Crucify me

Ace man, cool, I say
Gonna get away
No, no, no reason for me to stay
But I come back another day
Get on my buses
Got no money
Driver said: "That ain't enough, man."
I say: "What the fuck you talking about?"

Say goodbye when you see me sign
Now I'm crucified
Crucify me
Crucify me
Crucify me

    General CommentLyric Correction:
    Ace man, cool, I say
    Gonna get away
    No, no, no reason for me to stay
    But I come back another day
    Get on the bus and
    And got out the money
    Driver said "that aint enough man"
    I say "what the fuck you talking 'bout"

    General CommentThis song is about 'selling out'. Basically, Rancid saw first hand some of the record companies' games, and they knew the price. 2 sides coming in quick is reference to the two sides of the argument, 1 is sell out, the other is doing the same thing but getting more cash for it. Obviously, on an aside, Rancid was going to Epic records, the same record company as the clash, probably because it would hold a little more 'punk' credability. The 2nd verse is about how either way, he got famouse, and he wants to duck out.

    General CommentPeople often cite this song when trying to argue that Rancid contradicted themselves by selling out, but the section of the song about the bus fare I think is Tim trying to say that he neeeds more money, and "Oh, what the papers say, caught up in disarray" refers to the fans putting Rancid down and thinking that they've sold out,

    General CommentWhoa, yeah, I guess Rancid sold out, but so did The Clash in a way. And Rancid STILL isn't, like, extremely well known. Anyway, this song is really cool because it's really catchy and a little pop-ish sounding but totally kick ass

    General Commentthis song is just great. i really dont like the term selling out. just because rancid switched companies because it made it easier and more accesible for fans to get records and to see them live etc doesnt mean that they "sold out". so they can make a bit more money from doing it. wouldnt most of us choose that option?

    anyway, i love this song so much and i like its message so much that im getting "disorder" and "disarray" tatooed on the inside of each of my wrists.

    mm rancid are good...
