(Within the same school. The idea was that we'd later combine both styles, unify the techniques.But still, we were too young. Too full of ignorant pride ???)


Oh no!!
Some people live illegal
What you got you can't keep here
Oh no!!
Some people live illegal
Oh they rise a lot of evil


Open the jails and set the men free
Well the devils and witches are looming on me
And the fighting and the robbing induce slavery
A decision of dissention into insanity


Oh no!!
Some people live illegal
What you got you can't keep here
Oh no!!
Some people live illegal
Oh they rise a lot of evil


Humility will hold you and never let you go
To all my friends well, much gratitude
And to all the wicked, I've got my eyes on you
And everyone stands in confusion


Oh no!!
Some people live illegal
What you got you can't keep here
Oh no!!
Some people live illegal
Oh they rise a lot of evil


(To do the job, you've got to prepare yourself to die)


Put 'em up, put 'em in, run 'em out, run quicker
_
Quicker than any motherfucker that I know
Rack 'em up and stomp 'em wherever he'll go
Rancid pack, I'm a blast it
Blasted lyrics of elastic
With a 12 gauge double barrel lyric gun
_
(Go... go ... go)
_
Proclamation to the nihilist
Down to the propagandist
Take me off of that fucking list
Well the devils and witches are looming on me
And the fighting and the robbing induce slavery
A decision of dissention into insanity


Oh no!!
Some people live illegal
What you got you can't keep here
Oh no!!
Some people live illegal
Oh they rise a lot of evil
(Go... go... go...)
Oh no!!
Some people live illegal
What you got you can't keep here
Oh no!!
Some people live illegal
Oh they rise a lot of evil

    General CommentI love this song so much! It's a different direction for Rancid... kind of a a bluesy dub thing but I like it a lot. I think it's about how society can drive a person to a life of crime. Does anybody know where the dialogue at the beginning of the song comes from?

    General CommentI always thought it was "Some people never legal", which seems to fit in and make more sense. Still, phunky as phuck.

    General CommentI don't know if the clip in the beginning is from a wu-tang movie, but it is definitley from a Kung-Fu movie. Rancid barrowed wu-tang's style of adding kung fu clips in their songs to symbolize their music and shit. mad good

    General CommentWithin the same school. The idea was that we'd later combine both styles, unify the techniques.But still, we were too young. Too full of ignorant pride in our own succulent sorrow. too into approval ...

    General Commentin the chorus he's actually saying "some people livin lethal" this is a modified re-recording of a song called lethal that tim wrote in rancid's earlier years

    General CommentCranefist357 makes a good point - this song is really similar in style to the song Lethal. God I love the dub-ish side of Rancid and wish they did more of that stuff..
