The Offspring

A Thousand Days – The Offspring

Ask me no questions and I’ll tell you
I’ll tell you no lies
When all is said and done
Does it really matter who’s wrong or right
Don’t ask me for a reason, I can’t explain
Why we hurt one another again and again
As I lie bleeding here I still
I still reach for you
A thousand days
Have passed away
A thousand days
Were captured in her eyes
Your eyes are open now but you know
Its still hard to see inside
When action and intention
Are two separate things
Now I somehow wish I could explain
Why we hurt each other again and again
Like someone on his dying breath
I still reach for you
A thousand days
Have passed away
A thousand days
Were captured in her eyes
Forever we’ve been
Trapped by our hearts
Trapped by our minds
I’d like to leave
I’d like to win at love
But I just can’t let it go
And I just can’t watch it slipping away
And I just can’t let it go
And I just can’t stand another minute
Maybe now someday our shattered lives
Will mend themselves again
But now a million miles away
I still wish I could
And though I somehow know, I can’t explain
Why we hurt another again and again
Like someone on his dying breath
I still reach for you

Take It Like A Man – The Offspring

When you won’t go along
Some will feel like you can’t find your way
Heaven knows
Heaven knows I’ve seen it all before
Now don’t get me wrong
I’ve seen many a life gone astray
When someone goes
All your bows won’t make it any better so let it go
CHORUS
Shut up and take it like a man
You need us to get a life
For your own good we’ll take you by the hand
‘Cause you need a little more
Maybe no one will say it
Maybe no one’s aware it goes on
All I know
All I know it’s like going off the deep end
Could you make a decision?
Could you think for yourself and go on?
Everyone knows
Everyone knows you’ve got to fit into the mainstream so save your woes
CHORUS
Close your eyes
Look away now
Make believe while you can
So you’d best go along
Don’t let on if you can’t find your way
Many more
Many more do it for you
Because heaven knows
Heaven knows it’s like playing with fire
Your life’s a throw
CHORUS

L.A.P.D. – The Offspring

When cops are taking care of business I can understand
But the L.A. story’s gone way out of hand
Their acts of aggression, they say they’re justified
But it seems an obsession has started from the inside
They’re shooting anyone who even tries to run
They’re shooting little kids with toy guns
Take it to a jury but they don’t give a damn
Because the one who tells the truth is always the policeman
CHORUS
Beat all the niggers
Beat whoever you see
Don’t need a reason
(We’re) L.A.P.D.
The city of L.A. feels like a prison
With helicopters overhead and bullets whizzing by
Martial law ain’t no solution
Police brutality’s just social pollution
Beat all the white trash
Beat whoever you see
Don’t need a reason
(We’re) L.A.P.D.
They say they’re keeping the peace
But I’m not buying it because a billy club ain’t much of a pacifier
“Protecting your freedom”
Now that’s just a lie
It’s an excuse for power that’s more like an alibi
Law and order doesn’t really matter
When you’re the one getting bruised and battered
You take it to a jury, they’ll throw it in your face
Because justice in L.A. comes in a can of mace
CHORUS
