Borrowed Records

It was nothing I knew
The slap of palm across my face
The plans are made without me again
To keep me busy all summer long

But what I felt
and what I learned from your borrowed records
Two at a time they seemed to come
Natural disasters wrapped in chewing gum (all right)

It’s everything
It’s all my dreams
In 85
I felt alive

And what did I say
You know I said I’d be doing this
At a level you’d appreciate
Before I forget to breathe was the sound
It was the sound all along
Made me sweat and laugh and cry
Made me want to sing along (all night)

It’s everything
It’s all my dreams
In 85
I felt alive

My success or failure
Depends on my own drive
The sounds that taught me patience
Helped me learn to be alive

It’s everything
It’s all my dreams
In 85
I felt alive

The Father Figures Phoenix, Arizona

"Like skating, punk is the band's lifestyle — and Phoenix has noticed, as the band has opened for bands like No Age, X, and Public Image Ltd. Reardon, Cornelius, and Lerma haven't mellowed out with age, and they haven't run out of things to be angry about. But there's a zen to their approach — a refined attitude that comes only with maturity, both personally and musically."
