She is a Salvador immigrant,
Head through a thin wall.
A frail hooker,
Holding a _
Gleaming sky scraper,
Bunker he looked down.
Laugh hysterically,
And then he spread around.
On Hoover Street, then he must be alone
The precious little,
(the) kid cashed the hoes.
Of a _ girl,
She kind of made you spill.
Her brother Mario,
Got shot 4 times in da head.
Now see poor Mario,
he caught a hot one,
through the lung.
Now he's done so god bless him.
And the cocaine,
Moves through their system,
Like a river forever wandering

To the last party of the under/loner class.
(distance) just a bunch of kids,
Who don't wanna finish last.
Now see the market place,
Has changed the weight of the scale.
You either get out and die,
Or go to jail.
And your best intentions,
Splinter and fail.
And a few weeks of promises,
And intentions fail.

It's a glass-pipe murder.
It's a glass-pipe murder.
Oh Yeah.
It's a glass-pipe murder.
It's a glass-pipe murder.

They kick a bottle of beer and a letter,
Simple things made Mario feel better.
You see it falls on you,
And it falls on me,
Self-annihilation, catastrophe.
Two packs of cigarettes for $2.70,
And a bottle of wine that's been opened.
And he said, why do I do this.
A shiver through his body,
Like a bottle of CC
Not encouraging reality or

He said it's who I am being back to it.
Off the deep end the record changed.
You see, no one stood up,
And cheered for him.
Everyone sat down,
With something that happened.
Began, to happen.
It's an old school dorm mystery,
And the handcuffs bleed...

It's a glass-pipe murder.(x2)
Oh Yeah.
It's a glass-pipe murder.(x2)

Who was the killer.... it's in the...
Oh Yeah...

    General Commenttwo packs of cigarrettes for two dollars and seventy cents and a bottle of whine that's been open he says why do i do this. what a great lyric to a great song. i really doubt most of these songs are about actual people, and if they were there would really be no way of knowing.

    General CommentDude... it's about a guy confused about his life, so he uses drugs to escape...

    "Glass pipe murder" is, as opivyrocks said, referring to the crack. He's having a rough life so he's using drugs to try to mend his mind and stuff... you know what I mean.

    General Commentnot that its that important, but the glass pipe is referring to a pipe you smoke out of. not snort through. a crack pipe.

    General CommentThis song OWNS! Very underrated Rancid song right here, possibly my favorite because of how cool it is. Tim Armstrong is a genius.
