about

Reno Divorce's debut album and bonus EP. Acclaimed by critics and fans alike, this record introduced the band to European fans with two subsequent tours in support of it. A fan favorite that many hailed as what Social Distortion should've sounded like, it's finally available here in its remastered form and with two bonus tracks.

Track Name: Let It Loose
Let It Loose

Man, can you recall the difference that you thought yo’d make?
It’s kind of scary now how easy that hope was to forsake.
You fed your foolish pride under the guise of a “blue-collar.”
And they stole the best years from you, and shrewdly paid you pennies on the dollar.

No you can’t run, you can’t run away anymore,
Take out your guns and spill their blood until it covers the floor.
There aint no right on wrong, its been in you all along...
Now let it loose.

Man can you recall the last time that you were ahead?
Sacrificing profound principles for poverty, instead?
You’ll never fit into their ranks, your’s is a game that they refuse to play.
Your idea make them nervous. A cancer spreading to the other slaves.

No you can’t run, you can’t run away anymore,
Take out your guns and spill their blood until it covers the floor.
There aint no right on wrong, its been in you all along...
Now let it loose.
Track Name: Hits You Hard
Hits You Hard

I’ve heard your story a 1000 times.
And it aint too much unlike mine.
Shattered hopes and unanswered prayers,
Can be a weight that’s hard to bear.
But when “Life” corners you and it lands its uppercut...
Throws you against the ropes, I only hope you get back up.

It hits you hard, it hits you fast,
Louder than a shotgun blast...
Leaves you all alone, wondering where your friends have gone.
When you needed love, you were afraid to ask.
I know, it hits you hard, it hits you hard, and it hits you fast.

Are you tired of being the outside?
Are you sick of all their rules?
Well you can’t make a difference when,
You wage your war from a barstool.
You give everything you’ve got,
After every empty scheme you chase.
When it knocks you to the floor,
Try and fall down with some grace.

It hits you hard, it hits you fast,
Louder than a shotgun blast...
Leaves you all alone, wondering where your friends have gone.
When you needed love, you were afraid to ask.
I know, it hits you hard, it hits you hard, and it hits you fast.

Do you think you’re strong enough to live outside their lines?
I think you owe it to yourself,
You owe it to yourself to try...
Track Name: Good Luck
Good Luck

Someone to have and to hold,
And to fill the void that your empty promises left.
Someone who won’t question where you were last night,
And why there’s liquor on your breath.

Good luck, baby, good luck...
Never again will you find another lover like me.
Good luck, baby, good luck, yeah...
Never again will you find another sucker like me.

Who else is gonna pay the rent,
And pick up the slack ‘cos you’re too drunk to work?
Turn a blind eye to the truth...
It hurts so bad every time you flirt.

Good luck, baby, good luck...
Never again will you find another lover like me.
Good luck, baby, good luck, yeah...
Never again will you find another sucker like me.

Who will still hold you close,
In lieu of rumors, whispers, snickers and laughs?
Turning red with anger and shame,
But always finding reasons to make it last.

Good luck, baby, good luck...
Never again will you find another lover like me.
Good luck, baby, good luck, yeah...
Never again will you find lover like...
Never again, find another sucker like,
Never again... find another lover like me.
Track Name: He's A Fuckup
He’s A Fuck-up

I remember the parties and the fights.
The melodrama and the hot summer nights.
Hanging ‘round outside of convenience stores.
The morning after and the nights before.
I think I promised someone, somewhere,
That I was going straight home,
But I never made it there.
I never was good at finding my way,
And when I walked by, you could always hear ‘em say...

“There goes that boy, he’s a fuck-up.
Always making noise in his punk rock band.
But his beater always starts up.
He breaks the rules but he never ends up in the can...”

I never did much, I just hung around.
Played my guitar and tried to get outta town.
Looking back, it aint no secret to me,
I’m only here ‘cos someone prayed for me.
I still get stares and double-takes, too,
Just ‘cos I don't look exactly like you.
And if I see a 100, I’ll be proud to say,
That when I walk by, you can always hear ‘em say...

“There goes that boy, he’s a fuck-up.
Always making noise in his punk rock band.
But his beater always starts up.
He breaks the rules but he never ends up in the can...”
Track Name: For Those Who Should've Known
For Those Who Should Have Known

When I’m with you, there’s no place for me to hide,
And facing you is just too tough.
When the opportunity arrives,
The voice of reason aint loud enough.
I know that you’re out for just one thing,
And you could care less what the consequences bring.
After you get it, you’ll go back home,
And I’ll be sorting through the wreckage alone...

I can feel her heart break, but that’s a chance I gotta take.
I just can’t win...
I try and fight, but what’s the use?
You can’t deny the brutal truth.

I don’t want to, but I have to.
Can’t stop it ‘cos the feeling’s coming back again.
I don’t want to, but I have to.
I think you know the situation that you put me in.

It’s like you’re waiting for me to slip up,
So you can say, “I told you so.”
And before I have the chance to get up,
You’ve already dealt another blow.
You’re methods are calculated and precise,
And you know that I’m willing to pay the price.
If the walls could talk, they’d let her know,
Where her trust and faith really goes.

No, you won’t be denied no matter how hard I try.
I just can’t win.
Let the say what they may...
Either way, I’m gonna pay.

I don’t want to, but I have to.
Can’t stop it ‘cos the feeling’s coming back again.
I don’t want to, but I have to.
I think you know the situation that you put me in.
Track Name: Last Dance
Last Dance

There you go again, off to pay bills you’ll never make.
Had twice as much as you can take.
When will it all end?
Even Easy Street has its tolls.
The tales you live won’t stay untold.
And if you think “Life” will forget,
You aint been around the block yet.

No, you just couldn’t see the forest for the trees,
When it all comes crashing down.

Through the lights, through the smoke,
Save the last dance for me.
After the creeps, the dirty sheets, the drunken fantasies.
The grass aint greener, the needles aint no cleaner, you’ll see.
The hard way, darlin’, save the last dance for me.

Oh, the looks you get, their wanting eyes, their dollar bills.
The music blares and their drinks spill,
Like fuel on a fire.
Redemption is a beaten path.
And only those that want it, last.
You’ll find the finer things in life,
Won’t be enough to pay your flight.

No, you just had to blaze your own fucked up trail,
When it all comes crashing down.

Through the lights, through the smoke,
Save the last dance for me.
After the creeps, the dirty sheets, the drunken fantasies.
The grass aint greener, the needles aint no cleaner, you’ll see.
The hard way, darlin’, save the last dance for me.
Track Name: Why'd You Give Up?
Why’d You Give Up?

17, in a cold dark basement...
The morphine dulls the pain, barely.
A dirty doctor with his dirty knife,
Cuts the cord four months early.
Labor pains, severed veins,
A baby’s born, but there’s no crying.
The doctor pries money from her hands,
As the angel lays the, dying...

Hateful stares, sadistic glares,
As he walks to the back of the bus.
Atrocities of the 20th century...
Remind me again in who do you trust?
When the other cheek gets beaten in,
All that’s left is your pride to defend.
200 years of hate held within.
He wonders why you gave up on him...

The little boy waits patiently, diligently,
For his Daddy to come.
So they can do all the things,
Daddy and his new family’s done.
Mommy knows the pain he feels,
She’s heard the other children taunt him.
The sun goes down and she ushers him,
She wonders why you gave up on them.
Track Name: Girls I Could've Fucked
Girls I Could've Fucked

I'm sure you've heard this one before,
What goes around comes back to you...
Forsakened all others this time,
And you proved the saying true...

I played it straight for so long,
Let's place the blame where it belongs...
Remember these last words before it's shut...
I'm haunted by the girls I could’ve fucked

I wish I could make light of it,
I wish I knew what made you do the things you did...
And as for the new leaf I turned,
It was too little too late, who am I trying to kid?

Oh, the history that we shared,
Turns to a future I can't bare.
The shit's hit the fan but I can't duck...
And I'm surrounded by girls I could’ve fucked.

There's no where for me to hide,
The shame stares at me in your face...
And every female passerby,
I'll know what to do with next time, just in case....

Sins I wish I could confess,
Are yours to get off your chest,
I watch as the best laid plans run amuck...
I'm surrounded by girls I could’ve fucked.

You're girlfriends and your sister, too.
But my heart belonged you.
In hindsight, this theory really sucks,
I’m surrounded by girls I could’ve fucked...

Girls you know I really could have....
If I had the chance I would have....
Track Name: M.O.
Sleepin' on a couch, huddled up into a ball,
Remembering the heartache that hurt the worst of all.
I used to walk these streets,10 feet tall,
When you're up that high it's a long way to fall.

Too proud to admit that I've been victimized.
My love and leave reputation has been compromised.
Threw caution to the wind when I tasted your deadly kiss.
Just another victim of your Modus Operandus...

Now I'm the one in prison in the dark parts of my mind,
And I know you're gonna' go unpunished for your crimes.
With a face like that baby, who could resist,
Being the next victim of your Modus Operandus?

I'm not the one to blame...
Track Name: What Were You Saying?
What Were You Saying?

What were you saying when you were talking?
All alone, hidden in the dark with him?
I saw you whisper. What did you whisper?
Cos it was clear to me the message you were trying to send.
Don't try to tell me that it was nothing,
Cos I remember when I was in his shoes,
And it was me, girl, doing the listening..
And we both know just what that led to..
What were you saying?

I was watching and I was waiting,
For you to remember who brought you there.
I was spitting in disgust at every mutual smile you two shared.
Don't say its me cos, I know you too well...
I can recognize when you're on the prowl.
It's up to you, girl, to put it straight now,
Before I throw it all away and cry foul.
What were you saying?
Track Name: World War III
World War III

World War III in the land of the free.
Our apologies to your democracy.
We’re giving a new meaning to the word “liberty”,
And taking back our loans from the Trinity.
We’re the race-less, faceless, nameless, shameless,
Walking eyesores that litter up your streets.
We flip your fucking burgers,
We commit your murders.
We’re the idiots that dig your ditches, deep.

Don’t even try and hide, you can’t outrun our guns.
Good morning, motherfucker, Judgement Day has come...

World War III in the land of the free.
Our apologies to your democracy.
We’ll accept your lives as your currency,
Towards the debt you have to pay.

World War III in the land of the free,
We’re storming the gates of your suburban homes.
We’re waving the flag of Parental Advisory,
Our battle-cry is coming of your speaker cones.
We watched you get fat from the load strapped to our backs.
For the bloodshed, now, you can only blame yourself.
Freedom has a cost, and look at what you’ve lost.
We don’t need no hand outs ‘cos we’re taking it ourselves.

We can hardly wait to start spilling your blood.
We stop until you’re face down in the mud...

World War III in the land of the free.
Our apologies to your democracy.
We’ll accept your lives as your currency,
Towards the debt you have to pay.
Track Name: Behind Closed Doors (Bonus Track)
Behind Closed Doors
The first time is the hardest, they say, but it feels so right.
Slow it down just a little, baby, make it last all night.
White lines and razor blades, $20 bills.
Honey, you’d be the death of me, if looks could kill…

I’ve lost count of how many times, that I swore I’d walk the line.
And for once just walk away…

Behind closed doors, where the promises are made.
And if you think they last forever,
Give ‘em time, they always fade.
Don’t look behind these closed doors, ‘cos you might find out who you are.
And if you think you see forever, well, you never see that far…
Don’t look behind these closed doors.

I’ll never pass up a good time I can get away with.
Give me a loveless embrace over a faithful kiss.
I get sick after every time when the guilt sets in.
But my conscience disappears when we start again.

I’ve lost count of how many times, that I swore I’d walk the line.
And for once just walk away

Behind closed doors, where the promises are made.
And if you think they last forever,
Give ‘em time, they always fade.
Don’t look behind these closed doors, ‘cos you might find out who you are.
And if you think you see forever, well, you never see that far…
Don’t look behind these closed doors
