Lyrics

I awoke, had a smoke
Didn't think of much, I don't need your crutch
So I spoke, it's a joke
When you tear apart what I try to start

Never want to worry again, could never count on a friend
What I know I have learned the hard way
Never want to see you again 'cause we will fight to the end
Now you know that I see things my way

Not you, the problem is mine anyway
It's true, it's where I have chosen to stay
Break through and see what's become of the game
I need a change

Here I go, sinking low
And it's in your eyes, it's me you despise
Always tried not to hide
But it's not enough and this road is rough

Never want to worry again, could never count on a friend
What I know I have learned the hard way
Never want to see you again 'cause we will fight to the end
Now you know that I see things my way

Not you, the problem is mine anyway
It's true, it's where I have chosen to stay
Break through and see what's become of the game
I need a change

Not you, the problem is mine anyway
It's true, it's where I have chosen to stay
Break through and see what's become of the game
I need a change

Do you need through your greed
To see me less, put me to the test
You can take my mistakes
I'll leave those behind 'cause I've got my mind

Not you, the problem is mine anyway
It's true, it's where I have chosen to stay
Break through and see what's become of the game
I need a change

Not you, the problem is mine anyway
It's true, it's where I have chosen to stay
Break through and see what's become of the game
I need a change

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 ...
