"Up To No Good" as written by and Rancid Rancid Brett Gurewitz....
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

No one is safe here
We're all in danger
Through the corridor
I see a stranger
Robbin' and ransacking
I see him walking
Lock your doors now
I hear him knocking

Up to no good
Up to no good
Like a spark on a wire
Or a splinter in wood
Best intentions get
Misunderstood
But that motherfucker is
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Quick like a snake
he's good at stealing
He'll even steal the plaster
off the ceiling
Cloaked in darkness
I see him standing
Making moves in the night
he's a ghost man

Up to no good
Up to no good
Like a spark on a wire
Or a splinter in wood
Best intentions get
Misunderstood
But that motherfucker is
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Criminals I understand them
Watch your back
Cause we'll come at random
Born to lose
And you end up in the system
He's our friend
Now we're gonna miss him

Up to no good
Up to no good
Like a spark on a wire
Or a splinter in wood
Best intentions get
Misunderstood
But that motherfucker is
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
Up to no good
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

    General Comment“Growing up in a crew there’s always a dubious personality. The natures of those who play the game of survival are not for us to judge but only to observe. There is an honor among thieves, whether you agree with it or not, it exists and thrives in this day and age. To our friends on the inside a message: We will celebrate your return and up to your release we will hold you in high regard. Love always.” — Lars Frederiksen

    My InterpretationHere are the lyrics straight from the booklet:


    No one is safe here, we're all in danger
    Through the corridor I see a stranger
    Robbin' and ransackin', I see him walkin'
    Lock your doors now, I hear him knockin'

    Up to no good like a spark on a wire or a splinter in wood
    Best intentions get misunderstood but that motherfucker is up to no good

    Quick like a snake, he's good at stealing
    He'll even steal the plaster off the ceiling
    Cloaked in darkness, I see him standin'
    Making moves in the night, he's a ghost man

    Criminals, I understand them
    Watch your back 'cause we'll come at random
    Born to lose and you end up in the system
    He's our friend, now we're gonna miss him
