American Football - I've Been So Lost For So Long Lyrics




I've been so lost for so long
Every street's a dead end
Every sign points behind me
If you need me, don't
You can't trust a man who can't find his way home
My impaired intuition is telling me just to give in

If you find me
Could you please remind me
Why I woke up today

I feel so sick
Doctor, it hurts when I exist
This isn't the pain I'm usually in
I hope it's not contagious

Maybe I'm asleep and this is all a dream
I can't believe my life is happening to me

If you find me
Could you please remind me
Why I should wake up tomorrow

This is me reaching out to you publicly
So what else is new?
Maybe I'm asleep and this is all a dream

American Football I've Been So Lost For So Long Comments
  1. Expert Cypro

    Dude, im only in high school and yet this song makes me feel nostalgic for some reason.

  2. Poya Kouchesfahani

    "Real Emo" only consists of the dc Emotional Hardcore scene and the late 90's Screamo scene. What is known by "Midwest Emo" is nothing but Alternative Rock with questionable real emo influence. When people try to argue that bands like My Chemical Romance are not real emo, while saying that Sunny Day Real Estate is, I can't help not to cringe because they are just as fake emo as My Chemical Romance (plus the pretentiousness). Real emo sounds ENERGETIC, POWERFUL and somewhat HATEFUL. Fake emo is weak, self pity and a failed attempt to direct energy and emotion into music. Some examples of REAL EMO are Pg 99, Rites of Spring, Cap n Jazz (the only real emo band from the midwest scene) and Loma Prieta. Some examples of FAKE EMO are American Football, My Chemical Romance and Mineral EMO BELONGS TO HARDCORE NOT TO INDIE, POP PUNK, ALT ROCK OR ANY OTHER MAINSTREAM GENRE

    M Skywalker

    Poya Kouchesfahani ew please don’t classify pg99 as emo- fucking cringe

  12. CreatveMnds

    💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖

  13. Christianloveoneanother333 Henson

    I'm found

  14. Joe Z

    For those who need the joke explained to them... American Football is an emo band. Hopefully that clears things up a bit.

  15. RUI RAIO X - PONTOS CARDEAIS

    likeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  16. Beau Halliday

    This video is confusing, someone explain pls.

  17. DrainedEyes

    I am so happy that I got to see a goth Mike Kinsella before I die.

  18. so am i -_-

    I'm confushion why this channel

  19. Xavier Garnier

    yeah goths are pretty lame. lol..

  20. Jason Hartley

    I'm a huge fan of American Football, but putting the song on this channel makes zero sense.

    Travis

    Jason Hartley-ya its odd.

  21. Boz.

    my favourite band of all time <3

  22. Carl Golli

    I don't know if I'm looking at this right, I only just found this band..

    But it seems to me like it's showing that everyone has some sort of a sadness inside of them. The father - son relationship with the ball when the son holds the glove, first the son is the goth, showing that he's 'too depressed' to care about playing. And his father seems to be disappointed with that. But at the end we see the same scene but with the father as the goth, and this time it seems as if the son doesn't want to play with his father, because of his father's depression and negativeness. He probably just doesn't feel like it's natural, he would probably rather play it with his friends. So what I think this is saying in a satirical way, that we all have sadness and loneliness inside us. The 'goth' appearance is a symbol of that sadness and loneliness. But because we all have it inside us to some degree, we often feed sadness off each other rather than making each other happier. This is just the way I see it.

    skaterdude10107

    Haven't watched the video yet so I can't add anything to your comment about it but if you just found this band, gooooo listen to the first album. It's absolutely amazing. These guys are awesome. The album this song is off if is pretty good too.

    Carl Golli

    I will do, definitely a band for me to check out after hearing this and My Instincts Are My Enemy

    Toilet Paper

    Goth is not a symbol of sadness and negativity tho... Goth is about liking dark things, whether it's death, fear, etc. Goth is something that you express those interests in, It's mostly something that you are not something become you know

    G.D. I

    You're looking too deep. Goth isn't supposed to symbolize depression or something in the video. It's about a father son relationship and trying to find a connection.

  23. Reila Naraku

    funny or die? "DIE"

  24. Kendall Watts

    I first heard this song and I was like: Holy Shit they're actually alive????!!!!

  25. Clyde Smith

    i think their new album was done pretty solidly. It's not the first album, but it is it's own stroke of genius

  26. Ethan Granville

    Man I got lost in the song. That was so powerful

  27. 1 LOHAS

    I love american football in Japan

  28. Horatio Huffnagel

    Little punk kids. Just throw the fucking ball back and forth. One of a dad's greatest things is to toss the ball with his son. It does seem pointless to the kid especially, if they don't play sports but its not about throwing the ball, its about the bond that exists between father and son.

  29. Horatio Huffnagel

    WTF did I just watch?

  30. Sebastian casablancas

    volvieron los pibes loco! bien ahi papa!

  31. Lucas Faria

    Aaron Glave

    Autumn night They changed, sure. Because thats what people do. They change. They grow up.

  37. idontimagineyouandi

    oh.my.fucking.god.. ever since i mentioned it the other day, i've listened to american football's new album like x10 times over.. and i was already thinking this was the best track on the album, after i started tearing up the first time i was listening to it.. then youtube showed me a notification they had a new video.. then i thought it was hilarious "funny or die" made an a.f. video, of all people.. and the description being "[this video]...teaches us that father and son relationships are the same no matter which generation is wearing the make-up." its so good for the first half where its like only the drummer & his son, and i straight up started laughing when his dad buys him a choker for his birthday present.. then, when mike kinsella comes in wearing all that black make-up.. and the looks they give each other over the fireworks & dirty joke book.. omfg. this is the most amazing surprise i ever could've thought of.. god i just love this so much. this is literally my new favorite. the best music video i've since in like 10 years straight. rating - 15 out of `10 stars.

  38. Janet Pantiga

    Gordy 😍

    Carina Houston

    ʜ ᴇ ɪ ᴅ ɪ ཊཏ I'm glad I'm not the only one here for him and Gus 😂

  39. Phukk Offski

    Funny or Die hasn't been funny in a long time.

  40. HIGHTONE

    I fucking love this band and music video so much.

  41. Sal Frisina

    Boy--the Funny or Die crowd ain't too bright, or cultured. Video and song are great. Thanks AF!

  42. Alex Almeida

    Don't know why this is here on Funny or die, but it is a nice commentary on difficult father-son relationships & how generations develop their own interests in contrast to what other generations wanted to feel like they are accepted & belong. 🍻to dads who put aside their ego long enough to build bridges to their children

    Tanner Kline

    Mhm! I love that it flipped that normative depiction of the dense hyper-masculine father and showed the dynamic of the artistic, nuanced father with the dense hyper masculine son.

    I honestly could relate too viscerally wondering what it would be like for me to have a bro for a son. Would be kind of difficult at times lol

  43. MetaMonkey

    Funny or Die? Die.

  44. NateShultz

    All I've learned is that goth people are disappointments.

    MilkDonald Records

    NateShultz listen to Joy Division and or The Cure. They shall change your mind.

    Strabby Crabby

    NateShultz say it to the cure

  45. Thibaut Vandame

    anyone who's a fan of American football would find this hilarious. Firstly because Mike Kinsella is so depressed in person but in like a very serious way, never a goth-y way. This is also funny because American Football a very serious emo/math/post rock band- and this video is like a satire of sadness :D I feel like you sorta need to know the band- or at least what angle they take on their music. I am so grateful this exists right now haha

    Martino Arnese

    Mad Mellon *a form of punk

    Mad Mellon

    Martino Arnese yeah but then he'll probably say some dumb shit to "punk" as well

    Martino Arnese

    Mad Mellon probably, but "a form of rock that is emotional" can't define emo, because even Nirvana had emotional lyrics but that's called grunge

    Poya Kouchesfahani

    Whoa we got ourselves a rEaL fAn over here guys


    You sound like that one guy who said

  46. Cain Munns

  47. Shatterrize

  48. Ayana J

    i knew i shouldn't have clicked this

  49. sharpvon l

    how do people not understand the comedy in this?

    Johnny Threefour

    Because it's not funny in any way?

    sharpvon l

    Mike Kinsella dressed as a emo dad, an OG emo band taking the piss out of emo people, jock son trying to relate to his emo dad. I found it pretty funny

    rockomundo

    Because people legitimately do not know what emo used to be before the whole side bang goth my chemical romance look from the 2000's

  50. synicalxjackal

    soooo emos suck ass..yeah I knew that already

    Otaku

    you really missed the point of the video didn't you.

    ---

    synicalxjackal This video is an OG real emo band more or less making a joke about "emos"

  51. Mike Dedmon

    I watched this twice - Still don't understand...

  52. hadi m.

    aaaaaaaaaa

  53. Alex

    Jesus Mike kinsella looks hilarious

  54. Pablo Viggiano

    Flóki? Is that you?

  55. Tícia

    eu vou apenas sorrir e fingir que entendi :)

  56. Rych3rInLyf3

    I get it. Its an emo band doing a parody of emo music videos.

  57. Umbra Night

    What was funny about that? I feel like i just watched something real and heartfelt.

    Thibaut Vandame

    heartfelt?! hahah

  58. Zapperhero

    should have raised him better

  59. Black Star Wolf

    I'm so confused

  60. Mark Donat

    I don't understand? What's the joke? Is it a pun or something sometimes puns go right over my head. And why are some of the Boys wearing black lipstick? I don't think that's funny black lipstick is scary!

  61. Luke Skywalker

    Damn you guys are a record label now? Great pick to start it, thats for sure.

  62. Kitkatkay _

    This is nice 👍🏽 I like it

  63. The Jetset Mike

    Shook AF
    (AF meaning American Football)

  64. GVideos09

    I love American Football, but this new album doesn't capture the charm of their 1st lp well.

    ambient mothman

    haha no dude it's very opposite, LP2 feels so much more mature than LP1

    HIGHTONE

    GVideos09 I concur!

    chase ruel

    eh, i think the song premices are overused and it sounded like the first record just a little more boring and too much production.

    creekandseminole

    Well, it's music made by older folks who've been through a lot of life.

    DJEDI296

    I liked their first record ok. Loved their 2nd record, which actually drove me back to the first record, which I now like a lot more than I originally did. Circle of life I guess.

  65. Cole.g13

    To be completely honest I thought this was a joke on how we miss American football since it ended a couple months ago😂

  66. Csfranklin

    That wasn't funny...

  67. Squizznot

    Depressing, Thought-Provoking, Well-Made, Metal. All words I can use to describe this video.

    frankensteinmoneymac

    Metal?!?! As in metal music? You have a strange definition of metal my friend.

    Squizznot

    Metal, is just another word for brutal, my friend. You must have skipped the Metalocalypse.

    Zeroblizero

    I can also use refrigerator, armistice, costermonger, coin.

  68. Fresh Lennon

    Die? I guess?

  69. Charles Bukowski

    New American Football sucks /: the video was eh.. but it was cool to see it on Funny or Die! Stay emo

  70. DaBirdman1989

    so is this the die part of funny or die?

    PsychoBoyJack

    what happened to this channel? i remember being one of the best channels on youtube

    Joel Wright

    I thought it was primarily a music video

  71. Parker McKeller

    What'd I just watch?

  72. kim flanagan

    Wait so only one kid got accepted? Huh? It was good then it became wtf

  73. dankwrasslin

    the granddads should have been the grandkids

  74. kim flanagan

    He still supported his bullshit and I think that's beautiful

  75. dreaminginnoother

    weird to see this on FOD, but nice to hear new American Football. Their music was always so pleasant and calming.

  76. Lemmy K. Is God

    What the...?!?! 😮 😕 🏈 🏉 ⚽ ⚾

  77. kirker
