Ego vs Ego

Might makes right but so does acting right
Don’t you know? Even children know.
Shake your fist you’re good at looking pissed
It’s all for show. The children know.
Take a chance watch a blind man dance
And you have to know
It’s ego vs ego

The games you play for just one day’s pay
Are they by design? Salvation you won’t find.
Expose the vaults it’s the poor man’s fault
Empty your soul. Emptiness will grow.
The nests you destroy like a vengeful boy
and you have to know
It’s ego vs ego

There’s no peace of mind you will ever find
Yourself to blame. Your public shame.
And you love your face a mirror’s favorite place
Mirror mirror who’s the narrowest of all?
The trick I think is to never blink
and you have to know
It’s ego vs ego

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."
