  • Hey, its your ride
    Get your petals out lay them in the isle
    Pretend
    Your garden grows its your day to wed
    We found your man
    He's drinking up he's all American
    And he'll drive
    He's volunteering a grace to end your life
    You tidy up,
    Its sad to hope
    Leave your shell to us
    You explode ,
    You firefly and tiny boat with hope
    Feather old ,
    The world tilts back
    And pours and pours and so
    You Satellite
    You tidal wave
    You're a big surprise
    And I
    One more night
    To be your mother

    They signal to interrupt
    They make frequency not strong enough to remain
    My hand and smile
    We will miss you
    But in time you'll get settled
    We will write (breathe in)
    So breathe
    Yea, you were right about me
    Can I get myself out from underneath
    This guilt that will crush me
    And in the choir
    I saw our sad messiah
    He was bored and tired of my laments
    Said I'd die for you one time but never again
    (Never again )

    Well I love you so much
    But do me a favor baby don't reply
    Because I can dish it out
    But I can't take it

    Well I love you so much
    But do me a favor baby don't reply
    Because I can dish it out
    But I can't take it

    One I love you so much
    But do me a favor baby don't reply
    Because I can dish it out
    But I can't take it

    Two I love you so much

    But do me a favor baby don't reply
    Because I can dish it out
    But I can't take it

    Three loved you so much
    But do me a favor baby don't reply
    Because I can dish it out
    But I can't take it

    Four I love you so much
    But do me a favor baby don't reply
    Because I can dish it out
    But I can't take it

    Five love you so much
    But do me a favor baby don't reply
    Because I can dish it out
    But I can't take it

    Six I love you so much
    But do me a favor baby don't reply
    Because I can dish it out
    But I can't take it

    Seven loved you so much
    But do me a favor baby don't reply
    Because I can dish it out
    But I can't take it

    Seven loved you so much (never have to be down to earth)
    But do me a favor baby don't reply (never have to live together on this piece of dirt)
    Because I can dish it out (never have to find my baby in the crowd)
    But I can't take it (Well I should be laughing right now)

    Seven loved you so much (never have to be down to earth)
    But do me a favor baby don't reply (never have to live together on this piece of dirt)
    Because I can dish it out (never have to find my baby in the crowd)
    But I can't take it (Well I should be laughing right now)

    Seven loved you so much (never have to be down to earth)
    But do me a favor baby don't reply (never have to live together on this piece of dirt)
    Because I can dish it out (never have to find my baby in the crowd)
    But I can't take it (Well I should be laughing right now) Writer/s: JESSE LACEY

  • Rosieposie from Long Beach, NyI know about this personally. I'm related to Katie. This song is about her. We found out about it from someone else. Thank you Brand New, for keeping Katie in people's thoughts. RIP Katie Flynn, 11/14/97 - 7/2/2005. Always in our thoughts. Today's the 7th anniversary of her murder. She should be 14. 7 years old when killed, 7 years passed. 7 years missed - every single day.
  • Caitlyn from Royersford, PaI remember hearing about this story a few years ago, and I can't believe brand new wrote a song about it too. I'm glad there are bands like them who are thoughtful enough to write songs as important as this one.RIP Katie
  • Jssmchh_rawr from Fayetteville, Ncthat is what this song was about. brand new is my favorite band, because aside from just plain amazing lyrics, all of the songs have a story behind them. this one's story, is so sad. but it makes me love the song just taht much more. i had this song on repeat for days, after a friend showed it to me. my favorite part: "i love you so much, do me a favor baby don't reply. cause i can dish it out, but i can't take it" when he says that, and in the background the "i should be laughing right now" it's the very end of the song, and it kills me in the best way, each time.
  • Andrea from Qc, QcThese lyrics are almost too much! Seriously they are amazing and extremely touching, such a sad song. I love the last lines in the back ground said in Katie's perspective

    I'll never have to buy adjacent plots of earth
    We'll never have to rot together underneath dirt
    I'll never have to lose my baby in the crowd
    I should be laughing right now

    really powerful.
  • Steve from Hempstead, NyI know the family that this tragedy happened too. I was sad aswell too hear that assholes drink and drink and then hurt other people. I love this song so much I can cry to it.
  • Jorge from Etown, Mdi think the end part is through the girl's perspective, and its saying she'll never get to have her own real wedding, buy grave plots with her husband, lose her baby in a crowd. which kinda refers back to "this day is your own day to wed" like the family was giving her a ride in the limo to satisfy her little-girl-desires to get married. But also its her special day in a sick way, the marriage of the two cars, and they found the guy for that, a drunk driver.
    then "i should be laughing right now" adulthood taken away along with her childhood.
  • Jeffrey from Ludlow, Kyperfect song....
  • Hugo from Provo, UtI can't Believe it. this is one of my favorite songs and i got chills as i was reading this
  • Taco Face from Taco Shell, WiMy brother told me about this song and its meaning that he heard at a Brand New concert, but i didn't know the total meaning. its so sad!
  • Tony from Carmel, InPerfect explanation. Jesse uses this explanation (in full gruesome detail) at almost every show. He mentioned how it happened very near his home.

    SIDE NOTE: Katie is mentioned with several other people who died in the process of writing the album. (DEDICATED TO: )
  • Aj from Sheboygan, Wiwow, i never knew the meaning of the song and i just knew it was very cryptic and used lots of analogies and references... now knowing the meaning... that's really sad....
  • Faramarz from Sterling, Vawow thats just amazing. and extremely heartbreaking. MashAllah.
  • Kat from Creston, Canadai agree with kevin its true, jesse said so himself
