Avenues & Alleyways Lyrics

 

Avenues & Alleyways - Rancid

Written by:Tim Armstrong/Matt Freeman/Lars Frederiksen

 

I figured out the problem yeah the problem is you

You didn't see us comin' now there's nothin' you can do

Times are gonna change so change or step aside

 

It's a point of view that took you by surprise

The sun's coming up yeah the new dawn arrives

New generation standing stand with anger in their eyes

No love in the city 'cause there's no connection

Been stricken with disease a racial infection

I'm a battering ram comin' through to you

 

In every alleyway on every avenue

 

Actions could erase all the fear that we suffer

People segregated no one understands each other

He's a different color but we're the same kin

I'll treat him like my brother he'll treat me like his

Well an eye for an eye yeah a tooth for a tooth

Brother against brother should be singin' with the group

The inner cities burnin' yeah it's screamin' black and blue

The power and the passion of a million youth

I'm a battering ram comin' through to you

 

In every alleyway on every avenue

 

I figured out the problem yeah the problem is you

You didn't see us comin' now there's nothin' you can do

He's a different color but we're the same kin

I'll treat him like my brother he'll treat me like his

All the blood that spills of all the guts that fly

The media paints a picture that stings all our eyes

Pits the dogs against the cats now who is responsible

 

The power in the issue the force is unstoppable

I'm a battering ram comin' through to you

 

In every alleyway on every avenue

 

I'm a battering ram comin' through to you

 

In every alleyway on every avenue

 

I'm a battering ram comin' through to you

 

In every alleyway on every avenue
