Come out and play



La canzone affronta il problema delle pistole e della violenza delle gang giovanili dentro i campus universitari.

« Getting weapons with the greatest of ease The gangs stake out campus locale. »
(Come Out and Play)


You gotta keep `em separated deriva da un fatto accaduto a Dexter Holland quando lavorava in un laboratorio di biotecnologia: doveva far sviluppare dei batteri per alcuni test ma questi si mischiavano e lui doveva tenerli separati. Da questo "I've gotta keep'm separated" è arrivata la frase nella canzone
You gotta keep'em separated

Like the latest fashion
Like a spreading disease
The kids are strappin' on their way to the classroom
Getting weapons with the greatest of ease

The gangs stake their own campus locales
And if they catch you slippin' it's all over pal
If one guy's colors and the others don't mix
They're gonna bush it up, bash it up, bash it up, bash it up

Hey!
Man. you talkin' back to me?
(Take him out)
You gotta keep 'em separated
Hey!
Man, you disrespectin'me?
(Take him out)
You gotta keep 'em separated

Hey, don't pay no mind
If you're under eighteen, you won't be doing any time
Hey
Come out and play

By the time you hear the siren
It's already too late
One goes to the morgue and the other to jail
One guy's wasted and the other's a waste

It goes down the same as the thousand before
No one's getting smarter, no one's learning the score
Your never ending spree of death, violence and hate
Is gonna tie your own rope, tie your own rope, tie your own

Hey
Man, you disrespectin' me?
(Take him out)
You gotta keep 'em separated
Hey?
Man, you talkin' back to me?
(Take him out)
You gotta keep 'em separated

Hey, don't pay no mind
If you're under eighteen, you won't be doing any time
Hey
Come out and play

It goes down the same as thousands before
No one's getting smarter, no one's learning the score
Your never ending spree of death, violence and hate
Is gonna tie your own rope. tie your own rope, tie your own

Hey!
Man. you talkin' back to me?
(Take him out)
You gotta keep 'em separated
Hey!
Man.you disrespectin' me?
(Take him out)
You gotta keep 'em separated

Hey, don't pay no mind
If you're under eighteen, you won't be doing any time
Hey
Come out and play
