Me vs. Maradona vs. Elvis
Brand New Lyrics


After one or two I get used to the room
We go slow when we first make our moves
By five or six I'll bring you out to the car
By number nine with my head on the bar
And it's sad but true out of cash and i-o-u's

I got desperate desires, and unadmirable plans
My tongue will taste of gin and malicious intent
Bring you back to the bar get you out of the cold
My sober straight face gets you out of your clothes.
And they're scared that we know all the crimes they'll commit
Who they'll kiss before they get home.

I will lie awaken and lie for fun
And fake the way I hold you
Let you fall for every empty word I say.

Barely conscious in the door where you stand.
Your eyes are fighting sleep while your mouth makes your demands
You laugh at every word trying too hard to be cute
I almost feel sorry for what I'm gonna do
And your hair smells of smoke
Who will cast the first stone?
You can sin or spend the night all alone

Brass buttons on your coat hold the cold
In the shape of a heart that they cut out of stone
And you're using all your looks that you've thrown from the start
If you let me have my way I swear I'll tear you apart.

Cause its all you can be
You're a drunk
And you're scared
Its ladies night all the girls drink for free.

I will lie awake and lie for fun
And fake the way I hold you
Let you fall for every empty word I say.

I will lie awake and lie for fun
And fake the way I hold you
Let you fall for every empty word I say.

With one or two, I get used to the room
We go slow when we first make our moves
But five or six, bring you out to the car
Number nine with my head on the bar
And it's sad but true, out of cash and IOUs

I've got desperate desires and unadmirable plans
My tongue will taste the gin and malicious intent
Bring you back to the bar, get you out of the cold
A sober straight face gets you out of your clothes
And they're scared that we know all the crimes they'll commit
Who they'll kiss before they get home

I will lie awake
And lie for fun and fake the way I hold you
Let you fall for every empty word I say

Barely conscious in the door where you stand
Your eyes are fighting sleep while your mouth makes your demands
You laugh at every word, trying hard to be cute
I almost feel sorry for what I'm gonna do
And your hair smells of smoke
Who will cast the first stone?
You can sin or spend the night all alone
Brass buttons on your coat hold the cold
In the shape of a heart that they cut out of stone
You're using all your looks that you've thrown from the start
If you let me have my way, I swear I'll tear you apart
'Cause it's all you can be
You're a drunk and you're scared
It's ladies night, all the girls drink for free

I will lie awake
And lie for fun and fake the way I hold you
Let you fall for every empty word I say

I will lie awake
And lie for fun and fake the way I hold you
Let you fall for every empty word I say

I will lie awake
And lie for fun and fake the way I hold you
Let you fall for every empty word I say

Emo Yeehaw

I like brand new because all the other fake emo bands talked about themselves being hurt in relationships and brand new talks about being the shitty person in the relationship and not knowing why they are the way they are. I connect more with this band than the rest of the mallcore bands strictly because of it.

more emo like this besides tell all your friends

@Tara Ledrick Not sure where you have gotten this information, but when you're looking at the picture as a whole that's not necessarily true and your inflammatory comments don't have anything to do with reality and only stir up others who are impressionable and will happily guzzle down whatever piece of information is being presented to them at that time and especially when there's some type of negativity or controversial ideas being passed around.

Upstate 518

Well, What about Seventy Times Seven?

Gabeothy Vids

I think that says a lot more about you than it does about brand new or emo as a whole

When I was younger my ex used to play this song CONSTANTLY. Never really paid any attention to it until I really started getting into Brand New about a year later and ouch, that shit hurt.
Years later, I’m the one screaming every lyric with a beer in my hand, tears in my eyes, and I can relate to this song more than ever (unfortunately).

@Atman Gotango i took it as trying to justify shitty behavior

Atman Gotango

I mean it's one of those well written songs that just has different layers depending on where you are.
Supposedly it's written as an allegory for the record industry.
But on a surface level it speaks to me of the hollow cruelty that stems from self loathing
