    Default 'Come out and Play' meaning?

    This song comes off as being about gang violence / racial violence. Most likely in southern California in the early 90s. But theres nothing proving this so, yeah. (Considering Dexter, who wrote it, was born in Orange County (and lives there now, I believe.)

    Thoughts? Am I wrong?

    I don't know if it's about any event in particular, but I'm positive it's about kids forming school gangs and getting into gang fights at school due to discrimination. So, just take what you said, and add a school setting.
    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    It's just about gang violence in general I think
