lyrics

Shut your mouths, watch your backs boys
We’re gonna run this door tonight
If anybody acts smart
Remember violence solves everything

I’m a single dad with a daughter
I work the door part time
I remember that kid from earlier
I didn’t hit him all that hard

Where did he come from?
And how did he get behind
With that knife?

Bastard changed his jacket (Ed Hardy)
Looked the same age as my girl (safely home)
Stuck the knife in my rib cage (damn it hurt)
Red ribbons on the ground

Where did he come from?
And how did he get behind
With that knife?

Where did he come from?
And how did he get behind
With that knife?

I wanna look up at the stars now
But the smog it clouds the night
And my last vision of the stars now
Is a neon light
