to me this is a life style and not some silly trend
and years from now when they're all gone
I pray that we're still friends
in the sand at Gilgo beach
in the year two thousand and sixteen
I'll be 42 and so will you
in our chairs right by the sea
faded tatoos on our legs and back
and our feet are buried in the sand
I just bought a microphone for my kid
'cause she's tryin' out for a band
"the time is now, the time is here"
this times forever am i clear-stop-go!

    General CommentSome one once said to Jimmy Stadt, lead singer of PBC, that girls wouldn't like Polar Bear Club's music because it's too agressive. He said this at live show, the footage is on You Tube, and he said something along the line of "I think a lot of the girls here tonight would disargee." I gather this is all about that. Theres a lawyer with two daughters. They like PBC or music like it, he doesnt and he doesnt understand why the singer scream and growl but as Jimmy explains "When [he] sings, it certainly...it isn't for...wasn't machismo, not intimidation, no, gender segregation, no. [he] just needed more from the words [he] sang" but you, the lawyer, couldnt understand. Keep in mind that he says 'burt according to you,' the lawyer ' our songs should separate, all the girls from the boys" hes not sayin they should, hes sayin the lawyer thinks they should. but mr lawyer, hes not the point.
