Don't worry about me, I'm gonna make it alright
Got my enemies crossed-haired in my sight
I take a bad situation gonna make it right
In the shadows of darkness I stand in the light

You see it's our style to keep it true
I've had a bad year, a lot to go through
I've been knocked out, beat down, black and blue
She's not the one coming back for you
She's not the one coming back for you

If I fall back down, you're gonna help me back up again
If I fall back down, you're gonna be my friend
If I fall back down, you're gonna help me back up again
If I fall back down, you're gonna be my friend

It takes disaster to learn a lesson
You're gonna make it through the darkest night
Some people betray one and cause treason
We're gonna make everything alright

Well the worst of times, now, they don't phase me
Even if I look and act really crazy
I went way down, she betrayed me
Now my vision is no longer hazy

I'm very lucky to have my crew
They stood by me when she flew
I've been knocked out, beat down, black and blue
She's not the one coming back for you
She's not the one coming back for you

If I fall back down, you're gonna help me back up again
If I fall back down, you're gonna be my friend

If I fall back down, you're gonna help me back up again
If I fall back down, you're gonna be my friend (x4)

    General CommentIf you work in the entertainment business and you make money, you're a sellout

    General CommentOk, first off, Rancid sold out long ago, but this song? How can a song about good friends be a sell out song? No matter the style of music, friendship is the same everywhere. I know for a fact I'd not be writing this right now if I didn't have my friends. I have respect for anyone that realizes how important their friends are.

    General CommentAfter Brody divorced Tim, he went through a really rough time, and his friends in the band helped him get through it, so this song is about how friends can help you through tough situations. A lot of people I know think this is Rancid's sell-out song. I don't think so though.

    General Commenteverytime i hear the beginning of this song, i think it's "pressure drop" by toots and the maytals or skatalies, i forgot which one. this song is the worst i've heard of rancid. i'm happy with the outcome of "red hot moon" tho. i haven't heard Indestructable yet, but i wouldn't call them sell outs. who says they play some bad songs for the money? even tho kelly osbourne was in it..and guys from gc.

    General CommentJust because they write a song a bunch of people like doesnt mean they sold out.

    General CommentMaybe they cant help it that people like there music, thats why people MAKE music so FOR other people, so if a whole bunch of people like there music doesnt mean there sell outs, they do have familys to feed.... BUT I am not to happy of some of the songs in Indastructable espically when Tim raps...

    General Commentyeah ive been noticing a lot recently the whole "this-is-my-band-and-you-cant-like-them" stuff (not on this site, just like with my friends) and i dont see why when a band "sells out" they lose fans... thats ridiculous especially if their music is like the same
