about

long live punkin donuts! long live every squat-dwelling, tattooed scalp bumming cigarettes on the corner, every brace-faced skokie middle-schooler with a crass patch, every homeless runaway in a germs shirt and mini skirt, every should-be-in-school kid talking about bands too obscure for you. long live the thirty of us who got arrested that summer night in maybe '96 when the owners of punkin donuts got sick of us sitting (aka trespassing) in their parking lot. god bless david who got his balls grabbed by a cop for talking back, dylan who was taken to the police station on his first-ever acid trip, ginger whose dad tried to use his clout to get him out of jail and thoroughly failed. long live the trans prostitutes doing blow under the italian restaurant awning, long live the aa’s from the queer sober clubhouse over ann sather who hoped we'd join them sooner rather than later. god bless the ones who made it out alive and the ones who didn't. long live clark and belmont!

lyrics

Clark & Belmont

when we were young punks
hangin out front of the dunkin donuts
taking shit from the grown ups
we never thought we'd be their age some day
we thought that this was our time and that our time was here to stay

and now I miss
the punks and the smell of piss
those summer days of tripped out bliss
my baby and her cherry kiss

the cafe where we'd
drink our coffee
the pick me up kids
and where the old folks home now stands
well it used to be a park
we used to spend all night there
on belmont and clark

i don't know where
i don't know but now they've all gone
and the years aren't so young
but I still remember every one

when we were young punks
hanging out front of the punkin donuts
giving shit to the grown ups
we never thought we'd be their age some day
we knew that it was our time
and our time was here to stay

and now I miss
the punks against the pigs
those tripped out days of summer bliss
my baby and her cherry kiss

where the old folks home now stands
well it used to be a park
we used to spend all night there
on belmont and clark
on belmont and clark
on belmont and clark
