about

Most of us will probably remember the famous line of 1985 movie The Breakfast Club:
“When you grow up, your heart dies". We all grow older, don’t worry. Morals will probably change over the years, but please keep on “living” and don’t turn into this 9 till 5 zombie. We really hope the punk and hardcore ideals that took us by the throat when we were younger keep us awake and fuel our actions later in life. Grey hairs shouldn’t numb the heart!

lyrics

When we were kids
So young
Always climbing trees and having fun
No idea if our hearts would turn colder
How things would work when we turned older

Little kids with small problems –
big kids - big troubles
So what is wrong – with trying to stay young

‘Cause growing up – feels like giving in
Growing up – feels like giving in

And of course things change
- keep forcing my ideals to back down
But I won’t bow down

A paradox of our minds
The years don’t kill what we need to find – in life
Or at least don’t allow them to
But I won’t bow down
I won’t bow down!

We can’t stay kids
And stay young
But we can climb and still have fun
Don’t let you heart grow colder
And still speak out against the things you consider wrong

Just grow up – and don’t give in
See the world – and don’t give in
