Our lives run different ways
Through the rain I see you in the sun
Our star shines anyway
If you wish upon it we are one

Dog eat dog
Every day
On our fellow man we prey
Dog eat dog
To get by
Hope you like my genocide

I find it such a shame
Through the pain I see things as they are
We're served up on a plate
The pedestal is high enough to fall
And if in time
We can see the errors of our ways
Would anyone change it anyhow
Our time is up

Dog eat dog
Every day
On our fellow man we prey
Dog eat dog
To get by
Hope you like my genocide

I bet you'd only run
If you saw what goes inside our own
I bet you'd lead the way
If it were up to you to decide
But it's not
Interview with The Offspring: Dexter and Noodles talk punk again

The Offspring are back: after almost nine years, one of the most acclaimed American punk-rock bands of all time has come up with a new record and an upcoming worldwide tour.
Released in April 2021 and immediately debuted at number 1 on Billboard’s Alternative Album chart, at number 2 on Billboard Top Rock Albums and at number 3 in the UK official album chart, Let The Bad Times Roll is The Offspring’s tenth studio album and their the first full-length work in nearly a decade.

Sometimes I think I´m gonna drown
'cause everyone around's so hollow
And I´m alone
Sometimes I think I´m going down
But no one makes a sound, they follow
And I´m alone

Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah

Yeah, if I make it I'd be amazed
Just to find tomorrow
Yeah, one more day and I´d be amazed
Just to see it waiting
Yeah and if I make it I´m still alone
No more hope for better days
If I could change
Then I´d really be amazed

And when you know you can't relate
The one more shiny face your heart breaks
No one cares
And when you know you can´t go on
'cause everything is wrong your heart breaks
No one's there

I hate a lot of things I hate a lot of people that are lame
I like to hate stuff, cause then I don't have to try and make a change
I hate teachers, I hate school,
I hate the cheerleaders and anyone who's cool (ya)
I hate the office, I hate the quad, don't wanna learn a thing
I wanna be a slob

It's cool to hate, it's cool to hate
Don't like nothin' and I like that fine
It's cool to hate, it's cool to hate
Don't like nothin' and I like that fine
Don't like nothin' and I like that fine
Yeah I hate everything, I even hate you too, so fuck you!

I'm always thinkin' bad, I never have nothin' good to say

If you could only read my mind
You would know that things between us
Ain't right
I know your arms are open wide
But you're a little on the straight side
I can't lie

Your one vice
Is you're too nice
Come around now
Can't you see?

I want you
All tattooed
I want you bad

Complete me
Mistreat me
I want you to be bad bad bad bad bad

If you could only read my mind
You would know that I've been waiting
So long
For someone almost just like you
But with attitude, I'm waiting So come on

Get out of clothes time
Grow out those highlights
Come around now
Can't you see?

I want you
In a vinyl suit
I want you bad

Complicated
X-rated
I want you bad bad bad bad bad... bad

Don't get me wrong
I know you're only being good
But that's what's wrong
I guess I just misunderstood

I want you
All tattooed
I want you bad

Complicated
X- rated
I want you bad

I mean it
I need it
I want you bad bad bad bad bad...bad
really really bad

I woke the other day
And saw my world has changed
The past is over but
Tomorrow's wishful thinking
Can't hold on what's being done
Can't grab on what's to come
And I just wish that I could stop but

Life Goes on
Come of age
Can't hold on
Turn the page
Time rolls on
Wipe these eyes
Yesterday laughs
Tomorrow Cries

The memories are bittersweet
Good times we CAN'T REPEAT
Those days are gone and we can
Never get them back

Now we must move ahead
Despite our fear and dread
We're all just wishing we could stop but

Life Goes on
Come of age
Can't hold on
Turn the page
Time rolls on
Wipe your eyes
Yesterday laughs
Tomorrow Cries

With all our joys and fears
Wrapped in forgotten years
The past is laughing as
Today just slips away
Time can't stand what we've made
Cause it's another day
And I'm just wishing we could stop --

Life Goes on
Come of age
Can't hold on
Turn the page
Time rolls on
Wipe these eyes
Yesterday laughs
Tomorrow Cries
Time rolls on

Maybe life is like a ride on a freeway
Dodging bullets while you're trying to find your way
Everyone's around, but no one does a damn thing
It brings me down, but I won't let them

If I seem bleak
Well you'd be correct
And if I don't speak
It's cause I can't disconnect
But I won't be burned by the reflection
Of the fire in your eyes
As you're staring at the sun

When I ran I didn't feel like a runaway
When I escaped I didn't feel like I got away
There's more to living than only surviving
Maybe I'm not there, but I'm still trying

Don't you hear me ?
I don't think that you relate
My will is something
That you can't...

When we were young the future was so bright(oh oh)
The old neighborhood was so alive(oh oh)
And every kid on the whole damn street(oh oh)
Was gonna make it big and not be beat

Now the neighborhood's cracked and torn(oh oh)
The kids are grown up but their lives are worn(oh oh)
How can one little street
Swallow so many lives

Chances thrown
Nothing's free
Longing for what used to be
Still it's hard
Hard to see
Fragile lives, shattered dreams

Jamie had a chance, well she really did
Instead she dropped out and had a couple of kids
Mark still lives at home cause he's got no job
He just plays guitar and smokes a lot of pot

Jay committed suicide
Brandon OD'd and died
What the hell is going on
The cruelest dream, reality

Chances thrown
Nothing's free
Longing for what, used to be?
Still it's hard
Hard to see
Fragile lives, shattered dreams

Chances thrown
Nothing's free
Longing for what, used to be?
Still it's hard
Hard to see
Fragile lives, shattered dreams

wannabe a member, wannabe a name
wannabe a local face that plays the social games
dancing through a time will bring you dinosaur trends
the limits of your mind is where the county line ends
listen to the media present it all as fact
following the lead cause you don't know how to act
travel in a straight line
cause you don't know your own way
they'll get you in the end
before you know you'll have a say

this o.c. life is not the life for me
insulated world, trade your happy thoughts
o.c. life is not the life so free
For you girls and boys

wannabe a member, wanna have some fame
fighting to stay ahead a part...

Show me how to lie
You're getting better all the time
And turning all against the one
Is an art that's hard to teach
Another clever word
Sets off an unsuspecting herd
And as you step back into line
A mob jumps to their feet

Now dance, fucker, dance
Man, he never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

And now you steal away
Take him out today
Nice work you did
You're gonna go far, kid

With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit 'em right between the eyes
Hit 'em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See 'em running for their lives

Slowly out...

In my own simple way
I think she wants me only
She said" Come over right away."
But she's just not that way
Her little soul is stolen
See her put on her brand new face

Pull the shades
Razor blades
You're so tragic
I hate you so
Love you more
I'm so elastic
The things you say
Games you play
Dirty magic

I should know better than
To think I'd reach inside her
It's all a cloudy kind of daze
She's not so sweet today
She mocks me, I'm no fighter
It all just seems like such a waste

Pull the shades
Razor blades
You're so tragic
I hate you so
Love you more
I'm so elastic
The things you say
Games you play
Dirty magic

It's oversimplified (x3)

Pull the shades
Razor blades
You're so tragic
I hate you so
Love you more
I'm so elastic
The things you say
Games you play
Dirty magic

Good bye my friend,
You messed up again
You're going to prison, you're off to the pen

You've gotten off easy so many times
I guess no one told you how to GET A LIFE!
The judge wasn't leanient like he was before
You got three to five and a kick out the door

The public defender really did try
Too little, too late, you didn't get a life

Hey, in Walla
I'll see you in Walla Walla
Slap on the wrist? Well, not this time
Hey, in Walla
I'll see you in Walla Walla
Folsom prison is the destination
Hey, in Walla...

Jennifer lost the war today
They'll find her burned and raped
Through it all
She must have wondered
What have i done
But nobody really cares today
The worlds a busy place
Guess she must have really sinned

I guess we're all just soldiers
But she was only six years old

Left to die by strangers
Her family waits
And if we're all just soldiers
Is it so wrong to be afraid

Jennifer lost the war

Pheobe lost the war today
There must be some mistake
Say it happens all the time
And it's said and done
And little miss 1565
Your soul remains unclaimed
Guess you must have really sinned

Morality won't help her
When shes silent in a morgue
And all our sorrows well
Just dont count at all
But will the morning headlines
Even say that its a shame
What are we heading for

Jennifer lost the war

Seen it all before
Silent on the ground
As he's walking away
And I wonder how many more
Everybody takes it
Like it's nothing at all
Jennifer lost the war
As he's walking away

On the way
Trying to get where I'd like to stay
I'm always feeling steered away
By someone trying to tell me
What to say and do
I don't want it
I gotta go find my own way
I gotta go make my own mistakes
Sorry man for feeling
Feeling the way I do

Oh yeah, oh yeah
Open wide and they'll shove in
Their meaning of life
Oh yeah, oh yeah
But not for me I'll do it on my own
Oh yeah, oh yeah
Open wide and swallow their meaning of life
I can't make it work your way
Thanks but no thanks

By the way
I know your path has been tried and so
It may seem like the way to go
Me, I'd rather be found
Trying something new
And the bottom...

Nothing changes cause it's all the same
The world you get's the one you give away
It all just happens again
Way down the line
There is a chain that's never broken
You know the story it's sad but true
An angry man gets drunk and beats his kids
The same old way his drunken father did
What comes around well it goes around
Nothing changes cause it's all the same
The world you get's the one you give away
It all just happens again
Way down the line


At 17 Shannon is pregnant
As young as her mom when she had her
Her kid is never gonna have a dad
The same old way that Shannon never had
What comes around well it goes...

In a world without leaders
Who'd start all the wars?
The world that you're saving
Will always be yours

Kill the President
Listen to the voice of reason
Unify with that single line
Stop the man with the power
Of the government
A leader's not the center
Of democracy

In a world without leaders
Who'd make people starve?
The world that we're saving
Will always be ours

Everyone says
Well maybe I'll make a difference
Thinking they've got plenty of time
But you're squeezed
A little tighter everyday
Punished before you can commit a crime

In a world without leaders
Who'd start all the wars?
The world that you're saving

I'm gettin Edgy
All the time.
There's someone around me
Just a step behind.
It's kinda scary,
The shape I'm in.
The walls are shakin'
And they're closing in.
Too fast or
A bit too slow
I'm paranoid of people
And it's starting to show.
There's one guy that
I just can't shake
Over my shoulder
Is a big mistake.

Sitting on the bed
or lying wide awake.
There's demons in my head
And it's more than I can take.
I think I'm on a roll
But I think it's kinda weak.
Saying all I know is
I gotta get away from me

I tell you something
Just ain't right.
My head is on loose
But my shoes are tight.
Avoiding friends 'cause
They all bug.
Life is like a riddle
And I'm really stumped.
If you reason,
Don't you know
Your own preoccupation
Is where you'll go.
I think I'm being followed,
I look around
It's only my shadow
Creeping on the ground

Never knew where to go
Never used to go to at night
Thinking but I didn't know
Never could seem to get it right
But I've made up my mind
Yeah I've made up my mind

I wanna feel important
I wanna feel alive
Don't talk to me
Don't talk to you
You know I'm lying
You know the truth

Yeah, I'm on a Mission From God
It sounds kinda crazy but I like it a lot
I'm an answer to the man up above
It's me he's speaking of
Yeah, so I'm just a fortunate son?
Everybody wants to be the chosen one
I'm on a mission
I'm on a mission from God

I went to Pensacola just to get an opinion
A perfect California get it straight in my mind

Head over heals i've fit in before
Now i don't want to do it no more
I've held it all in with blood on my face
Built it up man so bad you can taste

I don't slag no one
I don't even judge
Don't give a shit cause i'm not gonna budge
I just want to be who i want to be

Guess that's hard for others to see
I'm not a trendy in asshole
I do what i want
I do what i feel like

I'm not a trendy asshole
I don't give a fuck if it's good enough for you
Cause i'm alive
Smash is the way you feel all alone

Like an outcast you're out on your own
Smash is the way you deal with your life
Like an outcast you're smashing your strife
Head over heals i've fit in before

Now i don't want to do it no more
I just want to be who i want to be
Guess that's hard for others to see
