Medicine Ball

This is a medicine ball
Want you to swallow it down
It will make everything right as rain
It will make everything nice again
This is the dream you have had
The one where you feel peace
It will taste funny at first
Until you ask for your release
Give me ….control
Let go
Shut up
I want…control

This is the ghost of your mind
keeping your thoughts at home
They wander aimlessly
Without the medicine chains
The medicine ball is good
Once or twice a day
Make sure you swallow it whole
And keep the wolves at bay
Give me….control
Let go
Shut up
I want….control

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."
