SEVENTEENER VIDEO

That’s our new video for Seventeener, off our new record, Metropole that comes out on Jan 28th on Epitaph records. You can preorder it here.

The lyrics are as follows:

Seventeener (17th and 37th)

I never

Wanted to die old

But it’s too late now

My heart has grown so cold

And the corpse I leave behind

Ain’t gonna be

No pretty boy

It’s a sick sack of disease

And we thought about, the way we’d go, high and beautiful and fuckin in the snow

On New years day, or Christmas eve, on a warm November night buried beneath orange leaves. Just a few dreams of the ways that we could leave.

 

My heart got kicked out of all its homes

And dying young just didn’t work so I guess I’m dying old

And there ain’t nowhere left to go, cuz all my loves would rather be alone.

 

And yesterday I woke up to find

The black in my beard had turned to white

And the pretty girls

That used to smile at me

Just stared off straight ahead

Or looked down at their feet

So tonight

I’ll sit up here

With the streetlights and these seventeen beers

Straight from the page

Of a teenage diary

Underneath these shitty stars like I was seventeen.

    Listening to this song early this morning brought tears to my eyes.
    My best friend told me he didnt want to live past 35, I told he was crazy.
    Less than a year later on a November night he died from a brain aneurysm. That was a little over 8 years ago.
    Love the new songs, can’t wait for the 28th.

    Listening to this song earlier today brought tears to my eyes.
    My best friend told me he didn’t want to live past 35, said anything after that was too old. I told him he was crazy.
    Less than a year later on a November night he died from a brain aneurysm. That was a little over 8 years ago, he was only 28.

    Phenomenal track, probably the most morose I’ve ever heard you sound when you sing. I’m taking a road trip from Ohio to Baltimore to see you guys in March. I’m stoked.
