Lyrics

Running from yourself like you're stranded
And now you're exactly where
You never thought you would be
In the dark without a light to guide you
What once was a breath
Is now a gasp to survive

You left so much behind
So many questions unanswered
The other side
The crash to the burn
The fingers that picket
For your solid satisfaction
Belong to the hands
Wrapped around your neck so tight

You live today, Without a care
Tomorrow will come and I'll still be here
I gave myself to you and you left me with lies
And there will come a time when you have so much
But there's so little that you can touch
And still I consider you a friend

For every temporary sucker
That's in place
That you need
Is another cry
For you to return
You've been there
You've been square
But nothing in between
Now it's time to find those
Who are looking for you tonight

It's hard to accept
But there's people who don't care
In a world so cold
And they seem unfair
But you've got to realize
You have a purpose
And it's not through your nose
That you can see the light
When I was scared
You picked me up
You told me never to forget
That I'll be there by your side
So here I am
We've gone too far
And it's been a long time
Since we've been at peace
We've fallen apart
But I still know
That behind the mask
Is a familiar face
It's you

In a scene increasingly littered with mallpunk junk, California's 1208 is a rock & roll life raft. Pumping out music with an edge and an intensity sorely lacking in the genre these days, this South Bay-reared quartet effortlessly teeters between melody and mayhem on its exhilarating second album, Turn Of The Screw.

1208, formed in 1995 and named for the apartment number the group first shared, plays punk like it's the only thing that matters in the world. Just check the apropos anthem "Next Big Thing," which scoffs at the corporate-merger music world's sinister, 'sign 'em and drop 'em' ways; "Time To Remember," where power pop and punk fuse with ...
