"Save Your Generation (Jawbreaker cover)" as written by and Andrew John Hurley Andrew Hurley....
This has been said so many times that I'm not sure if it matters
But we never stood a chance
And I'm not sure if it matters
If you are the shores, I am the waves begging for big moons
I'm mailing letters to addresses in a ghost town
(Your secret's out)

I know this hurts, it was meant to (it was meant to)
Your secret's out and the best part is it isn't even a good one
And it's mind over you don't, don't matter

This has been said so many times that I'm not sure if it matters
But it must be said again that all us boys are just screaming
Into microphones for attention
Because we're just so bored
We never knew that you would pick it apart, oh
I'm falling apart to songs about hips and hearts
(Your secret's out)

I know this hurts, it was meant to (it was meant to)
Your secret's out and the best part is it isn't even a good one
And it's mind over you don't, don't matter

I used to obsess over living,
Now I only obsess over you
Tell me you'd like boys like me better
In the dark lying on top of you

(This has been said so many times that I'm not sure if it matters)

I know this hurts, it was meant to (it was meant to)
Your secret's out and the best part is it isn't even a good one
And it's mind over you don't, don't, don't, don't matter

From day one I talked about getting out
But not forgetting about how my worst fears are letting out
He said why put a new address
On the same old loneliness
When breathing just passes the time
Until we all just get old and die
Now talking's just a waste of breath and living's just a waste of death
And why put a new address on the same old loneliness
And this is you and me
And me and you until we've got nothing left

    General Commentto all of you alls:

    Fall out boy did not do this horribly.
    i thought i was awesome.
    and for one
    "ew fall out boy covering jawbreaker? thats unfortunate. shhh i dont want the fall out boy fans to know who jawbreaker is. "

    i already knew who jawbreaker was...
    and besides that..
    i thought this site was to express what you the song was about.
    if you thought the song was so bad, why "waste your time" commenting it?
    dont you have better things to do?


    agh..
    stupid, stupid people.

    General CommentFor all of you assholes wasting your time posting a comment on a cover you CLEARLY do not like,
    IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, DON'T COMMENT IT.
    It's common sense, you gits. It's a freakin' cover. They're going to change it, yes?
    I know a lot of good covers that have been altered a little bit.
    IT'S NOT KILLING ANYONE, QUIT ACTING LIKE IT IS!

    Right idiots.

    General CommentIt's only ironic now that they got signed to island. When they did this cover- not so much.

    Jawbreaker is awesome. The orig. version is ace, but this one isn't half bad.

    General Commentokay i'm probably wrong but the lyrics sound more like

    1)"i had just begun to forget my lies" instead of "i had just begun to forget my lines"

    2)and i think it's "you're NOT punk and i'm telling everyone" instead of "youre a punk and i'm telling everyone"

    3)it's "i have a present. it's the present." not "i have a present, it is a presnet."

    4)"this war can be won" not "this one can be one"

    it might be wrong, but i think it makes more sense and sounds more like it. i guess only half of these corrections are right but i'm still not sold.
