USS Destroyer

This is a message for the masters
Maybe it’s time for a change
This is a message of disaster
You’re going to be digging lots of graves
This is a message for the leaders
And for the flags you wave
This is message for believers
When no one will come to your parades

I don’t believe in statements
I don’t believe in change
I don’t believe in the devil
I just can’t at my age

This is a challenge to the safety
Of walls created by our fears
This is a shovel made of backbone
To uncover what’s left between our ears
This is destruction of your ethics
By those who believe in just the word
This is completion of the process
Mute all the curious boys and girls

I don’t believe in heroes
I don’t believe in pain
I don’t believe in endings
I’m adjusting to my chains

We destroyed ourselves from the inside out

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."
