Lyrics

It was the day the sky fell on me
I know I've changed since you last saw me
So sick of hearing that I'm not right
Could have been better, I'm tired and I don't want to fight

Because the guilt that builds up inside
Fills me with fear that is just too hard to hide
Nothing's the same as it used to be
It's getting harder each day to be me

From below I know
I can grow and stay out of your sight
From below I know
I am low, hidden from the daylight

Within reach
But never mine to keep

It took so long before I could face
How it was wrong, it was hard to trace
Most of my life I lived to be
Part of a world so blind I was lucky to see

That my vision was blurred with lies
Nobody understood, no one who could confide
Nothing's the same as it used to be
It's getting harder each day to be me

From below I know
I can grow and stay out of your sight
From below I know
I am low, hidden from the daylight

Within reach
But never mine to keep

If it were up to me
I'd look at all I could be
So many wants and needs
I guess I'll try to be me

From below I know
I can grow and stay out of your sight
From below I know
I am low, hidden from the daylight

From below I know
I can grow and stay out of your sight
From below I know
I am low, hidden from the daylight, yeah

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 ...
