[Tim Armstrong]
When the fog comes through the Golden Gate and the moon shines on the Bay
And everything has changed now that you have gone away
Things are getting darker and it's harder for me to see
And now you're an angel lookin' over me

Back up, back up, it's what you get
Beat up, keyed up, that's rocky road
Back up, back up, it's what you get
Beat up, keyed up, that's rocky road

[Skinhead Rob]
Sad but true but the list is too long
If I had to name you all, it wouldn't fit in this song
This magnum's got me thinkin' and it's makin' me pissed
Your lives were taken to early, you will always be missed
All the mothers who cry and the fathers who mourn
For every life's that's taken there's another child born
That doesn't make it better and it doesn't make it right
I'm just thankful everyday that you came in my life

Back up, back up, it's what you get
Beat up, keyed up, that's rocky road
Back up, back up, it's what you get
Beat up, keyed up, that's rocky road

[Tim Armstrong]
In a dream you take a trip down Shattuck to Durant
Up the hill to the steps, Sproul Plaza and Telegraph
You pass Channing, you pass Derby, you go to Ashby down to Adeleine
Take MLK to fifty-fourth and go down to Genoa
Yeah, and follow the bart tracks to Harmon street
Ah, Harmon street, Harmon street, Harmon street
Yeah, it's reoccurring, it's like a dream
I live a thousand times, yeah
And it's always like the very first time

[Skinhead Rob]
As time goes on I can never forget
All the times we had, memories I protect
Seems like yesterday when I last saw your face
You're no longer here and no one can replace
All the times we had, wish they could happen again
I'll hold you in my heart, in my heart to the end
But if I could make a change, it'd be me not you
So hard to sit and cope, so sad but true

Back up, back up, it's what you get
Beat up, keyed up, that's rocky road
Back up, back up, it's what you get
Beat up, keyed up, that's rocky road
