"I So Hate Consequences" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
And I'm good, good, good to go
And I'm good, good, good to go
I gotta get away
Get away from all of my mistakes
And I'm good, good, good to go
And I'm good, good, good to go
I gotta get away
Get away from all of my mistakes

So here I sit looking at the traffic lights
The red extinguishes I hope that the green ignites
I want to run away I want to ditch my life
Cause all of my mistakes keep me awake at night

And after all of my alibis desert me
I just want to get by
I don't want nothing to hurt me
I had no idea where my head was at
But if my heart says I'm sorry can we leave it at that
Because I just want for all of this to end

And I so hate consequences
And running from you is what my best defense is
Consequences
God, don't make me face up to this
And I so hate consequences
And running from you is what my best defense is
Cause I know that I let you down
And I don't want to deal with that

And I'm good, good, good to go
And I'm good, good, good to go
I gotta get away
Get away from all of my mistakes

It just now hit me this is more than just a set back
And when you spelled it out, well, I guess I didn't get that
And every trace of momentum is gone
And this isn't turning out the way I want

And after all of my alibis desert me
I just want to get by
I don't want nothing to hurt me
And I had no idea where my head was at
But if my heart says I'm sorry can we leave it at that
Because I just want for all of this to end

And I so hate consequences
And running from you is what my best defense is
Consequences
God, don't make me face up to this
And I so hate consequences
And running from you is what my best defense is
Cause I know that I let you down
And I don't want to deal with that

And I spent all last night
Tearing down
Every stoplight
And stop sign in this town
Now I think there might
Be no way to stop me now
I'll get away despite
The fact I'm so weighed down

All of my escapes have been exhausted
I thought I had a way but then I lost it
And my resistance was once much stronger
And I know I can't go on like this much longer

When I got tired of running from you
I stopped right there to catch my breath
There your words they caught my ears
You said, “I miss you son. Come home.”
And my sins, they watched me leave
And in my heart I so believed
The love you felt for me was mine
The love I'd wished for all this time
And when the doors were closed
I heard no I told so's
I said the words I knew you knew
Oh God, Oh God I needed you
God all this time I needed you, I needed you
And I so hate consequences
Running from you is what my best defense is
I hate these consequences cause I know that I let you down, and I don't want to deal with that

    General CommentIt's kind of one of those no-brainer meanings. Consequences come with all things, and as shown in the below lyrics, you can't run from Him, He will eventually catch up with you, and always accept you back no matter how far you stray.

    When I got tired of running from you
    I stopped right there to catch my breath
    There your words they caught my ears
    You said, “I miss you son. Come home”
    And my sins, they watched me leave
    And in my heart I so believed
    The love you felt for me was mine
    The love I’d wished for all this time

    He lied and after he ran out of stories to tell the truth caught up to him, and he knows he messed up.

    I experience this so often. He did something on an impulse or without thinking about it, and later he knows he did something wrong and is sorry, and doesn't want to face up to the consequences. Actually, that's pretty much the gist of the song. Story of my life... it's an issue of willpower.

    General CommentI love this song, and this CD is spectacular. It's physical proof that Relient K has finally become the well crafted musicians they should be. "K Rocks!!"
