«Against All Authority» - «Silence Is Golden But Duct Tape Is Silver»

Silence Is Golden But Duct Tape Is Silver
Me and Billy like to sleep all day
On the floor is where we decay
Mohawks in disarray from Cutler Ridge
To motherfuckin' Biscayne Bay

The gangs tried to kill us
But we wouldn't take flight
Brass knuckles and rusty knives
Kept the wolves at bay
And we'd play in traffic downtown
Turn it up and take me away

What do you do when there's nowhere to go?
Empty pools and punk-rock shows
Anger that nobody knows
And the sun goes down
And the streetlights glow

We rolled through the city in a bucket of rust
With the punk-rock South Dade girls screaming lyrics at us
From the backseat and kicking up dust
To the sound of the only people we can trust

Out of control, and you've shivered my timbers
I'm all fucked up—the moon's just a sliver
Yeah, silence is golden, but duct tape is silver
Like the lining of the clouds that conceal the killers

The streets aren't safe
When the winds are blowing
In the eye of the storm,
The blood starts flowing
We're gathering bricks and
We're gonna start throwing them at you
(We'll throw them at you)

Kick us when we're down
We're not going away
We're the stray dogs that chase you
The ones that betray you
And wild through the streets
And sleep with the decay of
All that you have left us: Life in disarray

Out of control, and you've shivered my timbers
Tell us to shut up, and we'll give you the finger
Yeah, silence is golden, but duct tape is silver
Yeah, silence is golden, but duct tape is silver—obey!
