Four Mile Circus

He’s out there
Like the godhead
in his casket
An artist
with no canvas
the masked man
before he’s unveiled

and what you see is what you get

His charm is
His poison
the face he makes
sells you for ransom
you cling to
his lifeline
while you’re cut
into ribbons

and what you see is what you get

It’s a circus with no rings
It’s a circus

He’s willing
to wait for
the right time
to strike
He’s one in
a million
A masked man
or a mad man

and what you see is what you get

He’s faster
Than you can
In daylight
His art forms
our secrets
To make you

And what you see is what you get

He’s Moses
He’s Jesus
He’ll kill us
Then eat us
He’s Adam
He’s Ahab
He’ll save us
then maim us
and everything he’ll do to you he’s done to himself already

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."
