Seven hundred miles to play to fifteen angry men.
I need some sleep.
They hate the songs.
We hate them too.
This show is free.
Twenty minutes in broke another fucking string.
Just call it luck.
They start to leave.
I start to plead.
Someone yells you suck.
Suddenly that joe kicks hard in my veins.
I cool down.
Things sound good right now.
Suddenly fists turn into brave ears, move as one.
Funny how no one knows we came.
They wouldn't come anyway.
Should I feel grateful to play.
I'm living life my way.
I fell in love with my enemy.
I let go of everything I had left at home.
Two cool people came.
They're hiding by the door.
Eyes wide with fright.
A guy, a girl, in love with the whole world.
It almost makes it right.
Every little thing must go wrong.

    General Commentwell i guess this song talks about the troubles of touring. but i just saw a Rise Against concert and was pleasantly surprised when Tim McIlrath played this song on his acoustic. i guess thats the closest i will come to be able to see jawbreaker play. but by the way, the concert was amazing! they freakin rocked. i recommend you see Rise Against live

    General CommentSong's meaning is pretty straight forward.
    Being a band that's trying to make their mark SUCKS. Tour van breaking down, driving for hundreds of miles, eating bad food, unbathed, and tired.
    And when you finally get to the gig, you find yourself playing to a handful of people who couldn't care to see you play anyway.
    And then, you start playing, and that washes away, and you kinda remember why you wanted to do this in the first place: it's to play the music. And you lose yourself in it.
    And maybe, just maybe, you connect with just one or two individuals in the crowd -- like the couple in the back who don't have the hardened cynicism the rest of the crowd has.
