Track Name: Neon Adventure/ Mission (District) Statement
I want to tell you what it was like to be a young punk.
But it's so hard to remember.
My mind is foggy like San Francisco
Dark nights I try to illuminate
What is remembered is a found poem.
I deconstructed collage
Made out of band flyers
Each opening revels a little piece of the show.
Did you know that Greek Temples
used to be brilliantly colored?
We know them as white.
Time whited them out.
Time whited them out
Just like they bleached out my neon adventures
bleached out my neon adventures
Why is so little remembered?
Track Name: High School was a Drag (spoken word)
High school was a drag
I didn't have school spirit
and neither did my school
I failed the audition for Oklahoma,
even though I was a girl who couldn't say no
I never went to prom or a football game
I wasn't on the debate team
I did skip school with Steven from Art Class
We drank Mateus Rose and stared vacantly into the bay.
Track Name: Winterland (Talking Blues)
Winterland was something that I'd left behind
a teenage girl waiting in a line, for a show
wearing a tube top that sparkled while the other Slip Kids drank their wine.
I'm heading out
heading out
sledding down
to Winterland
Track Name: What is Family?
What is family?
Is it bones, blood, genes and habit?
Are you only born into it or can you create it?
I was a misfit teen
A puzzle looking for other pieces that fit
when I stumbled on the Mabuhay Gardens,
a Fillipino Supper Club that hosted punk shows after hours
My friend's there were like me, chipped and broken
Together we pieced to make family.
Track Name: Sadie Saturday Nite (revisited)
Sadie Saturday Nite was a mere 17
when she spotted a poster for the Nuns and Crime.
She walked up Broadway, up to the Mabuhay and asked them if
they'd let in a minor

Sadie Saturday Nite had to think of a plan
to get out of the house on a school night
She laced up her boots and made an excuse
She said mom, I'm sleeping at Julie's

Sadie Saturday, Sadie Saturday, Sadie Saturday Nite
Sadie Saturday, Saturday Nite.
Track Name: Diamond Heights
I could see the lights, so bright on Diamond Heights
I could see the sky, so wide, reflected in your eyes
It was just a night, one night, that you held me tight.
Watched the fog roll by, up high, on Diamond Heights

Sparkly city
lit up like Christmas
awfully pretty
chilly, so chilly

He had a car
Where he parked wasn't very far
from Glen Park Bart
I loaned him my heart
Track Name: Blue Haired Boy
A Blue Haired Boy, A Blue Haired Boy
Beautiful blue haired boy
Fresh from Sassoon's, my heart went BOOM
I'd never before seen a blue haired boy
Crilium spikes, skin China White
and so shy, he barely spoke a word, that Blue Haired Boy

We left the party to get to know each other better.
and immediately spied a little shoe box of an empty room
We got in, and got it on
Opened the door, fell on the floor,
amor, amor,
with a blue Haired Boy, a blue Haired Boy

The next day I rented that room, which had neither kitchen nor bathroom
But it did have the fresh blue glow of love and adventure
Can you fall in love for just one night?
I think you can
That's why I did it so many times.

A Blue Haired Boy, A Blue Haired Boy
A Blue Haired Boy, A Blue Haired Boy
A Blue Haired Boy, A Blue Haired Boy
Track Name: Winter of Hate
It was the winter of hate, not the summer of love
when the Sex Pistols broke up
Do you ever feel like you've been cheated?
The answer was a resounding yes.

It was the Winter of Hate
Not the Summer of Love
It was the Winter of Hate
Not the Summer of Love

What we were thinking, Johnny said out loud
"punk is dead, what do we do now"

All the lost boys and girls
All the lost girls and boys
All the lost girls and girls
All the lost boys and boys

It was the Winter of Hate
Not the Summer of Love
It was the Winter of Hate
Not the Summer of Love
Track Name: All Girl Band
Drum lessons in the basement
Drum lessons uptown
1s and 2s and 4s and 8s
I think I'm getting it down

Hands greasy from Chinese food
I played a sloppy set
"You're the worst band we've ever heard."
Bill Murray just left

The best of times, worst of times
slumber party, knocked down drag out fights

All Girl Band, All Girl Band


Fought with Liz before we left
but we laughed all the way to Chapel Hill
We played bad at the Brewery
Third on the bill

The best of times, worst of times
Ran and hid, I could not keep the time

The gigs we opened for the Clash
we got pelted, heckled and jeered
but the last time we turned it around
they clapped and they cheered
We sang ULSAPAY AMALAY
Pulsallama What's my Name?

All Girl Band, All Girl Band

We learned to play on the stage
One note at a time
Out of tune, a beat behind
Dressed up fancy, we had chutzpah
We weren't afraid
All the boys were envious
cuz we got the gigs,
We got the gigs!

All Girl Band, All Girl Band
Track Name: It's Not Nice Without you (When You're Around)
Nice (capoed up 2 frets)

Summer Love It’s a drag

When it’s over I want it back

Fall is here Bittersweet

How can I stand on my own 2 feet

You went away It feel apart

You lost yourself and I lost my heart

Pre chorus
I came back Nothing’s the same

Only the shit the pain

I’m your rock but I’m sinking down

Never do like to touch the ground

Chorus:

It’s not nice without you
It’s not nice without you

Chocolate bunny with a gaping hole
Drive-by hug you’ve got to go
You see me cross against the light
Drive by hug another fight
Once and a while you shake the globe
Flurries settle and I’m snowed

When you’re around When you’re around

It’s not nice without you
It’s not nice without you
Track Name: Wimp
Stare at me and you make me tense.
You talk a lot but it makes no sense.
You come over try to hang around.
You come over. It brings me down

Cuz you're a wimp.
Your a wimp------
Your just a wimp
Your a wimp.
Track Name: Mad as Hell (in the White Night)
White Night
Caught up
in an accidental
act of activism
in the white night.

Mayor Murdered
Counsel member
Milk murdered
Was the headline

Hot Toddies
Days on Market
Heard the verdict
And it wasn’t right
Twisted twinkie defense
Light sentence
For Dan White

Chorus
Mad as hell not gonna take it any more
Mad as hell not gonna take it any more

Peaceful protest
in the Castro
Rolled downtown
Blew up like dynamite

Headed south
Windows Broken
Shops looted
Like a hand in a bee hive

Chased up Market
side Streets, swarm of bees
we ran for our lives)

At the plaza
Cop cars smoldered
Like charcoal
In the white night

Mad as hell not gonna take it any more
Mad as hell not gonna take it any more

Caught up
in an accidental
act of activism
in the white night.

Mayor Murdered
Counsel member
Milk murdered
Was the headline
