It's a Decycling Wednesday.

What do you do on a Decycling Wednesday?

"de-stroy cycles and circles, not myself"

Here's the song "Decycling" by American Steel, one of the best punk rock bands The Bay Area has ever seen.

Listen now:  

The lyrics to American Steel's song Decycling held aloft in San Francisco.

They are an inspiration. Make this Decycling Wednesday your own.

Here's American Steel playing "Every New Morning," Maria," and "Rogue's March" at The Fest 8 in Gainesville, FL.

This one's for the girl with all the names.


Now, here are the lyrics typed out

American Steel - "Decycle" from their self-titled LP on New Disorder Records, 1997

tightened up

clean my nose and act up

'cause now I'm not a convict, now I'm not locked up

set my eyes to fairness, remove signs of violence

destroy cycles and circles not myself

and this madness around us some souls just can't take

unflinchingly

so

broken heart and broken spirit

break the glass 'til there's no glass left

baby while you're young, drink until your heart's numb

look at all the broken folks

wonder if they ever tried to decycle

release the pain of childhood

find some peace in what's good

'cause now I ain't like my old man, I ain't no hardknuckler swashbuckler I was back then

let the old man slip away

concentrate on being a good one someday

destroy cycles and circles not myself

this madness around us some souls just can't take

unflinchingly

so

broken heart and broken spirit

break the glass 'til there's no glass left

baby while you're young, drink until your heart's numb

look at all the broken folks

wonder if they ever tried

decycle

and this madness around us some souls just can't take

unflinchingly

so

broken heart and broken spirit

break the glass 'til there's no glass left

baby while you're young, drink until your heart's numb

look at all the broken folks

wonder if they ever tried

now I'm not a convict, now I'm not locked up

decycle
