20/20

20/20 was an American power pop band based in Hollywood, California. They were active from 1977 to 1983 and reunited during the mid-1990s to the late 1990s. Steve Allen and Ron Flynt had played together in Tulsa in 1976, and Steve decided to move to Los Angeles in 1977 after fellow Tulsa natives Phil Seymour and Dwight Twilley met with success. Once in Los Angeles, Steve met with Mike Gallo (singer/songwriter/keyboardist/drummer), who had already conceived of the idea & name for the band (after having spent time in the UK). Mike first started writing with Steve, and later, auditioned, Steve's friend, from Tulsa, Ron Flynt for 20/20. The three-piece band signed with Greg Shaw's Bomp! Records in 1978 to record a single.

When I woke up from a 7-14
I shut my window on the air so mean
I take enough pills, I'll be tough as the world today
But it's a uphill life
I wouldn't think nothing 'bout dying tonight
I'm a nuclear boy and I live in the nuclear world

So don't worry 'bout me, I don't worry 'bout you
You look at the facts, there's not much you can do
And I don't care about truth, don't want a steady girl
A nuclear boy in the nuclear world

But I know I'm alone in this fight
I load my rifle then jump in the night
A cold black hand in the center of the world today
Why are we so uptight?
Push the button, aren't we always right?
You got to be cruel if you're gonna run the world today

So don't worry 'bout me, I don't worry 'bout you
You look at the facts, there's not much you can do
And I don't care about truth, don't want a steady girl
A nuclear boy in the nuclear world

You can't feel the sun beating down in the sky
You can't see the sun when it's out in your eye
You can't see the sun beating down in the sky
You can't feel the sun

When I woke up from a 7-14
I shut my window on the air so mean
I take enough pills, I'll be tough as the world today
But it's a uphill life
I wouldn't think nothing 'bout dying tonight
I'm a nuclear boy and I live in the nuclear world

So don't worry 'bout me, I don't worry 'bout you
You look at the facts, there's not much you can do
And I don't care about truth, don't want a steady girl
A nuclear boy in the nuclear world
So don't worry 'bout me, I don't worry 'bout you
You look at the facts, there's not much you can do
And I don't care about truth, don't want a steady girl
A nuclear boy in the nuclear world

'Cause I'm a nuclear boy in the nuclear world
'Cause I'm a nuclear boy in the nuclear world
'Cause I'm a nuclear boy in the nuclear world
'Cause I'm a nuclear boy
