"Seventy Times 7" Lyrics

album:
Your Favorite Weapon [2001]

genre:
Alternative, Pop, Punk, Rock

Back in school they never taught us,
What we needed to know.
Like how to deal with despair,
Or someone breakin' your heart.
Twelve years I've held it all together,
But a night like this is beggin' to pull me apart.
I played it quiet left you deep in conversation.
I felt uncool and hung out around the kitchen.
I remember I kept thinking,
That I know you never would.
And now I know I want to kill you,
Like only a best friend could.

Everyone's caught on to everything you do.
Everyone's caught on to..

As if it happening wasn't enough,
I gotta go and write a song,
Just to remind myself how bad it sucked.
Ignore the sun, covers over my head.
Wrote a message on my pillow that says,
"Jesse, stay asleep in bed."
Don't apologize.
I hope you choke and die.
Search your shelf for something which to hang yourself.
They say you need to pray,
If you want to go to heaven.
But they don't tell you what to say,
When your whole life has gone to Hell.

Everyone's caught on to everything you do.
Everyone's caught on to..
(And I can't let you let me down again.)
Everyone's caught on to everything you do.
(And I can't let you let me down again.)
Everyone's caught on to..

So is that what you call a getaway?
Tell me what you got away with,
Cause I've seen more spine in jellyfish.
I've seen more guts in eleven-year-old kids.
Have another drink and drive yourself home.
I hope there's ice on all the roads,
And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt,
And again when your head goes through the windshield.

Is that what you call tact?
You're as subtle as a brick in the small of my back.
So let's end this call and end this conversation.
And is that what you call a getaway?
Tell me what you got away with,
Cause you left the frays from the ties you severed.
When you say "best friends" means friends forever.

Is that what you call a getaway?!?
Tell me what you got away with,
Cause I've seen more spine in jellyfish.
I've seen more guts in eleven-year-old kids.
Have another drink and drive yourself home.
I hope there's ice on all the roads,
And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt,
And again when your head goes through the windshield!

(Is that what you call a getaway?)
Everyone's caught on to everything you do.
(Tell me what you got away with.)
Everyone's caught on to..
(Cause I've seen more spine in jellyfish.)
Everyone's caught on to everything you do.
(And I've seen more guts in 11 year old kids.)
Everyone's caught on to..
(Have another drink and drive yourself home.)
Everyone's caught on to..
(I hope theres ice on all the roads.)
Everyone's caught on to..
(And you can think of me, when you forget your seatbelt,)
Everyone's caught on to..
(And again when your head goes through the winshield!)
Everyone's caught on to..

(I can't let you let me down again.)
Everyone's caught on to..
(And I can't let you let me down again.)
Everyone's caught on to..
(I can't let you let me down again.)
Everyone's caught on to everything you do.
(And I can't let you let me down again.)
Everyone's caught on to..
