Seventy Times 7

This song is by Brand New and appears on the album Your Favorite Weapon (2001).

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..

Everyone's caught on to everything you do
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!

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

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

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

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

TriviaEdit

  • The song title "Seventy Times 7" comes from a verse in the Holy Bible - Matthew 18:22 - where Jesus tells Peter he must forgive his brother "seventy times seven times" - "Then Peter came and said to him, "Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how oft should I forgive? As many as seven times?" Jesus said to him, "Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy times seven times.". The song is about a disagreement between Jesse Lacey and childhood friend John Nolan, then-guitarist in Taking Back Sunday. Taking Back Sunday later released There's No 'I' in Team which is their side of the story. Lacey and Nolan are now on good terms again and are well past the issue.
