Goodbye to sex
Wish I could say, "I'm sorry," to my ex
Take apart your head
Chew it up and swallow it

Goodbye to love,
I have pushed you up, right against the wall
Take apart your head
Chew it up and swallow it

But I'll bet that you know that
Pretty soon you'll be back tonight
I can't say things that I'm feelin'
I'll never get anything right

Goodbye you liar
You're sippin' from a cup
But you don't own up to anything
And you think you will be fine
Take apart your head
Take apart the demons, that bring an addict to the bed

But I'll bet that you know
That pretty soon you'll be back tonight
I can't say the things that I'm feelin'
I'll never get anything right, on my own
I'll never get anything right, on my own
I'll never get anything right, on my own
I'll never get anything right, on my own

I say, please take me back to your bed
I love you so much that it hurts my head
I don't mind you roaming through my skin
Oh, let the bad pox in, the bad pox in

When we were made, we were seperable
Life is a test and I get bad marks
'Cause the Saint got the job,
And I'm writing down my sins
The storm is coming
The storm is coming, yeah

But I'll bet that you know
That pretty soon you'll be back tonight
I can't change this that I'm feelin'
I never say anything right, on my own
I never say anything right, on my own

I say, please take me back to your bed
I love you so much that it hurts my head
I don't mind you roaming through my skin
Oh, let the bad pox in, the bad pox in

You're my favorite bird, and when you sing
I really do wish that you wear my ring
No matter what they say, I am still the king
Now, the storm is coming,
The storm is coming, yeah

    General Comment*NOTE*
    I submitted these lyrics because a lot of people have been asking for this version rather than the one listed as "The storm is coming"

    These lyrics are based on various live performances that i witnessed on Brand New's 2006 summer tour.

    You may have a live version from the internet, where Jesse's singing COMPLETELY different lyrics.
    That is NOT how he's been singing this song on tour, ALTHOUGH he DOES change the order of these lyrics/verses around.
    (Don't ask why. Maybe to keep us all on our toes?)

    BUT, please feel free to correct anything that you think I really do have wrong. (or fill in that one line i can't figure out)

    General Commentgoodbye to sex
    i wish i could say sorry to my ex
    take apart your head
    chew it up and swallow it

    goodbye to love
    i have pushed you up right against the wall
    take apart your head
    chew it up and swallow it

    where is it that you're running?
    pretty soon you'll be back tonight
    you can't say teh things that I'm feeling
    I'll never do anything right.

    goodbye you liar
    its simple 'cause you don't owe up to anything,
    but you think you could inspire
    take apart your head
    take apart the demon that weighs heavy on your head

    where is it that you're running?
    pretty soon you'll be back tonight
    you can't can't listen to your demons
    they'll never get anything right

    i'm on my own
    I'll never get anything right
    I'm on my own

    please take me back to your bed
    i love you so much that it hurts my head
    i don't mind you under my skin
    let the bad parts in, the bad parts in
    when we were made we play the part
    life is a test where i get bad marks
    (i have no clue about this line)
    the storm is comming, the storm is comming in

    where is it that you're running
    pretty soon you'll be back tonight
    you can't can't listen to your demons
    they'll never say anything right

    i'm on my own
    I'll never say anything right
    I'm On My OWN

    please take me back to your bed
    i love you so much that it hurts my head
    i don't mind you under my skin
    let the bad parts in the bad parts in
    you're my favorite bird and when you sing
    i really do wish that you'd wear my ring
    no matter what they say i am still the king
    now the storm is comming
    the storm is comming in.

    General CommentNOOOOOOOOOOO! He changed "I miss you every night when I'm going to bed. I love you so much that it hurts my head." That was my favorite part to this song.

    General Commentyoutube.com/…

    For reference for anyone that hears different lyrics.

    I think it is the 'storm is coming in', not 'storm is coming, yeah'.

    Otherwise thanks for submitting this version of the lyrics.

    General CommentA) this song is fucking orgasmic.
    B) on their set list for both the Boston and NYC shows (7/25 & 7/27 respectively) this was listed as "Take Apart Your Head"
    C) its deffinetly "parts" and not "pox"...

    General Commenti saw this at brixton academy last saturday and it really is orgasmic.

    i also had a live version of it before hand, that i was quite familiar of the lyrics with & jesse did sing them different at the show.

    actually amazing.
