"Everybody That You Love" as written by and Jeffrey Ernest Rosenstock....
They're looking at me with their glassy eyes
They're gonna bury me
Dripping with Hennessey and ecstasy
They're gonna bury me
I guess I probably should have done my research, hey!

And I know that it is darkest before dawn
Cause I've been staying out for way too long
And I know that it only takes one call
We've got no options

So people can fake it but my arms hurts and my hands start shaking
You're all scared of me
I try to keep my kamikaze still
They re gonna bury me
I guess I should have watched where I was pissing

Instead of off the rocks
Up in those fancy Greenpoint docks
We had such an awesome night
And getting shanked would be a disappointment, oh

I understand it s calm before the storm
Because I like to hang out where it s warm
And I know that it is darkest before dawn
But I see clearly, oh I get it now

All the people I love the best
Are starting to get frustrated with my being a mess
And the people I kind of hate are always impressed
All the people I love the best
Are growing increasingly impatient with the person I am
And the people I hardly know would never understand

And I know that it is darkest before dawn
Cause I've been staying up for way too long
And even if I never get to call
I still loved you
Will you love me too
Do do do do doooooo

They're gonna bury me
They're gonna bury me
They're gonna bury me
They're gonna bury me

    Song Meaningthis song is beyond genius. i agree with radolumbo, this completely embodies jeff rosenstock's psyche and stuff. he uses his songs as an outlet for his depression and shit, but he hides it under catchy melodies and upbeat songs. but the real reason this song is so amazing is that jeff claims this was about a time he got drunk by the docks and saw a bunch of polish gangsters deal drugs and they threatened to kill him. the lyrics make sense for both meanings. genius.

    General CommentThis song and the video make me incredibly happy. They completely embody Jeff Rosenstock's psyche in my opinion. People hate him, his life is depressing, but he's still happy and can enjoy himself. Basically, fuck the world.

    These lyrics need major fixes though. The chorus is completely wrong.

    May be my favorite line in any song Jeff Rosenstock has ever wrote. Fucking perfection there. Those dudes already covered the meaning. This song just makes me so happy!
