lyrics

Rigged

You think you’re smart
You think you’re really smart
But all your brains don’t make you a man
You make me sick
You make me wanna be sick
Blinding my eyes is your best trick

But I’ll watch you
I’ll watch you burn it all
I’ll watch you burn it down to the ground

No one is free
No one is truly free
It’s an illusion we’ve all been sold
You took us down
You took us all right down
And then you paved your roads with gold

But I’ll watch you
I’ll watch you burn it all
I’ll watch you burn it down to the ground

You hope it always stays the same
You’ll only play in a rigged game

And we let you rig it
We even voted for you so could

You hope it always stays the same
You’ll only play in a rigged game
You hope it always stays the same
We let you rig it –
There’s no one else to blame

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."
