Lyrics

We've heard you talk about us, know you could live without us
We know authority would rather fight than unite
We know our rights and we have none and that's gonna change tonight
You need to learn that we're not looking down, we see eye to eye

So now I say we're gonna smash the badge until we get our way
Don't put it off, put them away
So now I say we're gonna smash the badge until we get our way
Don't put it off, put them away

Don't want to play your game, intimidation, fear and shame
Take away the badge and you're a citizen just the same
There's a time for everything and you've come at the wrong time looking for me
How can you say you know what's right in a lie?

So now I say we're gonna smash the badge until we get our way
Don't put it off, put them away
So now I say we're gonna smash the badge until we get our way
Don't put it off, put them away

There's been too many days and nights
Being bored with nothing to do
We're gonna tear it down tonight
This one's from us to you

We're gonna take back what you took away
You're gonna take back what you had to say
And you will wish that this was yesterday
Don't need the games you play

We're gonna take
We're gonna break
Leave us alone
Or we'll break your face

So now I say we're gonna smash the badge until we get our way
Don't put it off, put them away
So now I say we're gonna smash the badge until we get our way
Don't put it off, put them away

Put them away
Put them away
Put them away

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 ...
