I had I dream I was a vigilante sidekick
My name is Tim I'm a lesser known character
I had a dream I was a vigilante sidekick
Fighting crime in the streets together

Down in Oakland
Off of west grand,
St joseph relief
A program

A good place were good people get food,
Help your fellow man is a good thing to do
Government agency said
Be afraid of me,
I shut your doors down it won't phase me
Wolverine came through left
The agent for dead, opened up the doors
Back up everyone was fed

I had I dream I was a vigilante sidekick
My name is Tim im a lesser known character
I had a dream I was a vigilante sidekick
Fighting crime in the streets together

Do not bill the abandoned buildings,
It's nice to sleep when you've got a ceiling
Neighborhood watch said we gotta put a stop,
Can't have people livin' for free call the cops

Here comes the SWAT team, and the M-16,
Shoot the walls in, destroy the building
Wolverine was sad and it made him mad,
Every single cop got a bullet in the head

I had I dream I was a vigilante sidekick
My name is Tim im a lesser known character
I had a dream I was a vigilante sidekick
Fighting crime in the streets together

    Tim Armstrong's fantasy he used to have about he and the X-Men uniting together to get their revenge on Neighbourhood Watch and cops who shut down homeless shelters. Lol. Only Rancid could pull that off.

    when tim was younger he read a lot of commick books and his favourite character was wolverine from the x-men. he did actually have a dream that he was with wolverine (i mean if you think about it a superhero is a vigilante) he mixes it with his political views that he likes to everyone to hear (dont get me wrong i love his political songs)

    there is a conflict within every human heart; between the rational, the irrational...between good and evil. and sometimes good does not always triumph. sometimes the dark side overcomes what lincoln calls 'the better angels of our nature'. a social commentary about the benefactors who would righteously provide solace for the needy, even when it means that the just contravene social law. "Every single cop got a bullet in the head "
