Another East Bay night

When the sun goes down and the night come around and the fog come a rollin' in
When you cast a line to go dance one time and an old friend invites you in
Hear a punk rock song and we sing along, everything gonna be alright

Well Gramma stands on the very same land on the old house up on the hill
You can see the San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz, Albany landfill
And reminisce on the front porch under a yellow light

Earthquakes shake and fires take from this view I've seen it all
I've tasted smoke as the hills burned
I heard the freeway fall
When there's nothin' to say just look into the bay
You know some things they just feel right

    Song Meaning“This song was written about growing up in the East Bay. Writing about the bay area always came easy to us. In so many ways you are where you came from, it’s engrained in you. It can shape you and define you as well as the experiences you may have throughout your life. As you grow up you rediscover where you came from. So much of our history, family…..roots come from the Bay Area. We had finished our record and decided to record a few more songs we had written, which is not uncommon for us to do. For example we wrote “Ruby Soho” last minute, “Salvation” was the last song written at the very end of making Let’s Go. So when we feel something we go with it. “East Bay Night” is another song like that. It harkens back to Operation Ivy and Rancid’s first record.” — Rancid
