Lyrics

Walking down the street, it's everywhere you see
Looking right at you, staring right at me
You can't escape it 'cause it's in your veins
The stars are out, they're bright today

It's the latest craze, set your eyes ablaze
They're just hoping to see, just a passing phase
Turn the cycle to a faster spin
Throw the has-beens out, bring the freshmen in

This is your only chance
Knock 'em dead

Show it if you got, the world is watching you
Take it if you want it, what have you got to lose?
Raise your glass to me, everyone's waiting for the next big thing
The next big thing

So now you won the fight, there's no end in sight
Everyone's your friend, might as well take a bite
You just made the world the youngest trend
But just make sure the cash register rings

They all know your name, it's such an easy game
If it all goes well, you'll have your minute of fame
Suddenly people want to help you now
Plug it in, make sure you play it loud

This is your only chance
Knock 'em dead

Show it if you got, the world is watching you
Take it if you want it, what have you got to lose?
Raise your glass to me, everyone's waiting for the next big thing
The next big thing

Show it if you got, the world is watching you
Take it if you want it, what have you got to lose?
Raise your glass to me, everyone's waiting for the next big thing
The next big thing

Keep that spotlight on, breathe it in
'Cause when it's over you will know your friends
Yeah, you enjoy yourself, appreciate the help
You'll need all the help you can get

Show it if you got, the world is watching you
Take it if you want it, what have you got to lose?
Raise your glass to me, everyone's waiting for the next big thing
The next big thing

Show it if you got, the world is watching you
Take it if you want it, what have you got to lose?
Raise your glass to me, everyone's waiting for the next big thing
The next big thing

Artist Bio

1208

1208

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 ...
