Man you guys got me curious.. I was planning on holding out (like some others here) until June before listening to anything. But maybe I'll listen to this song, and that's it. Thanks for the lyrics.

Haha god damn, there's already like 52 downloads on the rip. Maybe I shouldn't have posted it publically. Oh well

I'm enjoying the song so far.
Not blown away, but far from disappointed too. Still very Gaslight Anthem-y, and that's all I can ask for Smile

I also like the overlapping vocals, reminds me of The Blues Mary (when Brian sung "She cries like a baby").

It's definitely "taught me how to DRIVE" not drown. It really sounds nothing like drown.

Isn't it more convenient to play it:

E 5-3----
B ---5-3--
G-------5

?
it sounds brighter, like on the record

Official lyrics from the Facebook page.


Look what you started,
I seem to be coming out of my skin.
Look what you've forgotten here.
The bandages just don't keep me in.

and when it was over, I woke up alone.

and they cut me to ribbons and taught me to drive.
I got your name tattooed inside of my arm.
I called for my father but my father had died.
while you told me fortunes, in American Slang.

Look at the damage,
the fortunes came for the richer men.
while we're left with gallows,
waiting for us liars to come down and hang.

and here's where we died that time last year,
and here's where the angels and devils meet.
and you can dance with the queen if you need,
and she will always keep your cards close to her heart.
before they tear you apart.

Going to be an age till the next official release.

Woohoo! I'm going to try not to listen the hell out of it the coming time but it's going to be hard to do so!

Just wanted to post that, made me think of the 'she cries like a baby' part immediately : - )

I think I sorta tabbed out the main riff for the song


b---10---8---------------10-10--8-------------
g-------------9---7---5---------------9--7--5--

Pretty close I think

I liked it but I have a feeling it will sound a lot better when it's released proper and not from a Myspace rip.

Bit underwhelmed at first, but after several listens it's growing on me. Like Simo said, it's only a low quality myspace rip. I'm sure when the stereo is cranked to 11 it'll be a rocker.
