lyrics

1984 the heart of summer
three punk rock kids: guitar, bass, and a funky drummer
you give ‘em nuff rope you can make ‘em sing
you give ‘em nuff hope they’ll seize the ring

it was the best of times
it was the worst of times
double nickels turns
three dimes

double vinyl, no cd in sight
three more years till I’d see the light
they sunk their hooks in my chump rock dream
pedro grandeur, a wrench in the cream

it was the best of times
it was the worst of times
double nickels turns
three dimes
a long time later it’s still brand new
the tension lives forever it’s a lesson, free and true
it lifts me up makes the world seem small
you can tip it at an angle it still stands tall

it was the best of times
it was the worst of times
double nickels turns
three dimes
