"Scrap" as written by and Sparks Gurewitz....
I met a skinhead named Scrap
He lived in my friend's garage
Everyday he's shaking that spray paint can
And comes out seeing stars

Grab a paper bag like an oxygen mask
Until your mind starts to gel
'cause the ball in the can
Has a crazy beat
The funky dying brain cell

So he met some Christian's from hell
Who said, "Let's go to Vegas man"
So he packed up his leather and his red beret
Into that big, bad Christian van

Use revival meetings like an oxygen tent
Till your mind starts to gel
'cause the preacher thumps the bible
With a crazy beat
The funky dying brain cell

Well, he came back to the garage
But the garage, it wasn't there
And he dug metallic gold more than Luke and John
Now he's growing his hair

Grab a paper bag like an oxygen mask
Until your mind starts to gel
'cause the ball in the can
Has a crazy beat
The funky dying brain cell

    General Comment"It was a guy named Scrap, and at the time we were recording our very first record and Brett Guerwitz of Epitaph was our producer and it was our first record and we were on Epitaph and it was before Epitaph got huge. He was working out of a very small house. And he was letting this skinhead named Scrap live in the garage. And he [Scrap] always had paint residue on his mouth. And then we got to fear that maybe he'd burn down the garage. There was always like a little drama going on around (laughs), around this guy Scrap. Brett and I wrote that song". Donita Sparks
