lyrics

Nigerian Prince Charming

Dear Mr. Reardon,

We are pleased to inform you of an exciting opportunity to join your government in finding an equilibrium it has been missing for years.
Your assistance, along with others like you, will bring a deep, undivided national pride back to the cities and towns of America. Your input is all we desire.

The measure of man is not in what he has, but is entirely in what he is willing to give. This is why we ask you to give as much as you are able to give.

Times are terrible, that’s what they say
It’s only getting worse, worse everyday
Don’t care about the future because it doesn’t pay
Your life is meaningless unless you obey
But what if I believe in something more
What if I believe there’s a lot to live for
What if I reject every media lie
And just do my best til the day I die

Consider this a one-time loan. For collateral, we promise you a different taste of freedom. We promise you a bridge between our great nation’s past and its robust future.

Take our collective hand and join us in cleansing ourselves for a better tomorrow. Mr.Reardon, you won’t be disappointed and we will be lucky to have you.

Times are terrible, that’s what they say
It’s only getting worse, worse everyday
Don’t care about the future because it doesn’t pay
Your life is meaningless unless you obey

But what if I believe in something more
What if I believe there’s a lot to live for
What if I reject every media lie
And just do my best til the day I die

about

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."
