California sun has sunk

Behind the Anaheim Hills, here comes the night

I was high on junk

And the warm winds of Santa Ana feel all right

Will every crimmin' hood make a bargain with the world

Seats are successive when you're shot to the curb

I spend my day in blindness, at night I get my vision

Dodgy, cause there are no one indecision

Cause it's wild, When it's Wild wild wild wild


(California sun has sunk...)


I get destructive outside obedience

I am no longer respected in this new transition

I put into effect, my long time standard

Disastrous living, disastrous living!


(Cause it's wild...)


(California sun has sunk...)


(Cause it's wild...)


(California sun has sunk...)


(California sun has sunk...)


All right!

    General CommentHave to ask.... who the fuck says "I was high on junk"?

    "Man, I'm so high"
    "Yeah? On Junk?"
    "That's right, man! I'm high on the junk!"

    Oh, and why does he sing in that ridiculous Australian accent?

    General CommentYes I am a poser because I stumbled across a song that I liked by a band I hadn't heard of before. What the fuck?! I can't like a song just because YOU say I can't well fuck you and your punk rock rulebook. This is one of the songs that got me into punk rock a few years ago and if you think that I am a poseur or killing your scene or whatever, just deal with it. You act like Rancid is a shitty band and you don't want anyone to hear their stuff or read the words. I'm proud to be a poseur then.
