The 11th Hour
Rancid Lyrics


Alright
Hey little sister do you know what time it was
When you finally seen all your broken dreams
Come crashing down your door
I say, they demand an answer and they demand it quick
Or the questions fade and the wasted days
Come crawling back for more

And I say do you know where the power lies
And who pulls the strings?
Do you know where the power lies?
I say, it starts and ends with you

The face of isolation
Well that's one you recognize
When you can't get straight
It's a lonely place and
It's one you do despise

I say, boredom is for sale now
And the helplessness you feel
Is a wounded dove and the hawks are above
Blood splattered on a reel to reel

And I say do you know where the power lies
And who pulls the strings?
Do you know where the power lies?
I say, it starts and ends with you

I was almost over, my world was almost gone
In a sudden rush I could almost touch
The things that I'd done wrong
My jungle's made of concrete
And through the silence I could feel
My aim is true and I will walk on through
These mountains made of steel

And I say do you know where the power lies
And who pulls the strings?
Do you know where the power lies?
I say it starts and ends with you

Oh, I say it starts and ends with you
I say it starts and ends with you

Hey little sister do you know what time it was
when you finally seen all your broken dreams
come crashing down your door
they demand an answer and they demand it quick
or the questions fade and then the wasted days
come crawling back for more

do you know where the power lies? and who pulls the strings
do you know where the power lies? ..well, it starts and ends with you

the face of isolation
well that's one you recognize
well you can't get straight

it's a lonely place and
it's one you do despise

boredom is for sale now
and helplessness you feel
it's a wounded dove and the hawks are above
blood splattered on a reel to reel

I was almost over my world was almost gone
in a sudden rush I could almost touch the
things that I'd done wrong
my jungle's made of concrete
through silence I could feel
my aim is true I will walk on through
these mountains made of steel

"Do you know where the power lies? It starts, and ends with YOU!" - most important message to hear

My favourite song by Rancid, no doubt about it.

ItsAiden 2Cool

Y’all have bad taste

Hindukush

Me too

One of the most sadly accurate songs about the helplessness of addiction, the contradictions and catch 22s surrounding recovery from it. The power lies with you but that doesn't mean it's easy or simple.

And from a man who's lived it.

The True J

If I was a wrestler, this would be my babyface theme song

One of my favorite bands. I've seen them so many times
