Jordan's First Choice
Against Me! Lyrics


Tell me how could you compromise
Yourself like this?
Tell me how could you blame anyone else
When you aren't really committed?
Tell me where was your head
When you broke that promise to yourself,
The one where you don't forget
Every life lesson that happened before your eyes
So you don't wake up to regret she's gone years away?
You had hopes and dreams of a day
Where everything, everything, everything would come together,
You wouldn't have to be so scared.

Are we just working till a day we decide we've had enough?
All along
We were strong enough
To be sick of it,
And put them back in their fucking place.
?
We were never in this
Together.

The reality that you know
Is just behind your idea
Of a society, security, and self.
Am I just fucked up?
'Cause I can't remember
The last time any of this made sense,
The last time I
Could stand up to myself.
Street faces all blend into one,
They ask for spare change.
Am I forgetting
What it looks like
From the other side?
Have I forgotten where I've come from?

Are we just working till a day we decide we've had enough?
All along
We were strong enough
To be sick of it,
And put them back in their fucking place.
?
We were never in this
Together

I'm 26 and I'm going to a show in may, but that's not Against Me, it's Laura

I saw them live at roseland. Always was a fan of Tom gable, but after he stage dove into the crowd I caught him right in the arm pit, I know first hand that bands can't always shower on tour, but fan or no fan, it was time to make a B-line for the sink and soap. Dude Stunk to high heaven!

This song is brilliant, its the pain and confusion of growing up, it is always the drive of the young to change the world, or burn it, but where do they go when you grow up? you get this. This is a truly brilliant song

Russ

Every so often this song pops in my head and I have to go listen to it.
