Taking Back Sunday - They Don't Have Any Friends Lyrics

Half listens in
And haven't watched it until the end yet
I haven't watched it until the end
But you can't stop yourself
(You can't stop yourself)
But you can't stop yourself
(Before you could get it for free)
Do you remember what that used to mean?

I'm not angry, I'm not anything at all
I'm not angry
I'm not anything at all
Why work if you don't have to?
Don't listen we'll do it for you
Cause I feel like a bigger man
With the upper hand
In those last few seconds before I hit send

I keep my head down and hope for a hit
Open the flood gates for all those smug little kids
(It's not their fault)
They don't have any friends
(They can't help themselves)
They can't stop themselves
(They can't stop themselves)
Undressing themselves
(Alone in their room)
Thinking that no one will ever love them
(Is to tell me what I'm doing wrong)

It didn't make you happy, It didn't make you anything at all
But you kept asking
You kept asking for that song
And I'm not angry, I'm not anything at all
I'm not angry
I'm not anything at all
Why work if you don't have to?
Don't listen we'll do it for you
Cause I feel like a bigger man
With the upper hand
In those last few seconds before I hit send

It didn't make you happy, It didn't make you anything at all
But you kept asking
You kept asking for that song

Why work if you don't have to?
Don't listen we'll do it for you
Cause I fell like a bigger man
With the upper hand
In those last few seconds before I hit send

  2. Eric Christensen

    God bless taking back Sunday.. They saved my life...and I don't give a duck..

  3. Jesus

    Eddie made it

  4. William Byrd

    This sounds like it could've been on Louder Now

  5. pris

    Is this song about bullying?

    AlienCow6991

    It's actually about arrested development and how people were complaining about the newer season that came out on Netflix and saying it wasn't as good as the old shit without even finishing the show. Adam said this.

    Gavin Lopez

    +AlienCow6991 I personally like the newer seasons

  6. Brystin Ivey

    This song is about the Internet and that is amazing

    Witness Me

    It's about a wealthy family who lost everything and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together.

  8. Brandon Welch

    this new CD is really good.  seeing them two nights in a row in march.  pumped for TBS shows every year.

  9. pl4sticgun

    i love all their work. if i had to pick a favorite song, i'd probably go with the ballad of sal vallaneuva or morning sickness

    PROMOTE ANTI-IMMORALITY,ANTI-VIOLENCE,&ANTI-RACISM

    my favorite song of theirs is either Error Operator, Liar, or Spin

    pl4sticgun

    those are fantastic tunes! i relate more to ballad and morning sickness out of everything theyve written so... & im not proud to admit that xD

    im seeing them live in Houston next week! 5th time! >:)

    Witness Me

    +Zemus "Spin", "Make Damn Sure" and "Cute Without the E" are mine! I'm glad to see another Louder Now fan.

    Sure Yaa!

    morning sickness <3 what a buried gem in a catalog of greatness; my favorite as well

  10. Daniel Yaworsky

    Everyone argues about what TBS album is the best, I think we should all just be happy that their catalog is so strong that there are multiple albums worthy of being called your favourite (fyi, its Louder Now for me)

    Witness Me

    Louder Now for the win!

  11. Diego Soriano

    why people hate the self-titled album? That album was cool. For example It Doesn't Feel a Thing Like Falling is sick!!! 

    My top TBS albums:

    1.Tell All Your Friends
    2.Louder Now
    3. Selftitled
    4.WYWTB
    5.Happiness is
    6. New Again

    Zach Hamilton

    The self titled album was the first one I started listening to them with. Love that album so much.

  12. Patrick O'Brien

    I don't understand the hate for their self-titled album. Their self-titled was great.

  13. Gordon Stearns

    Dude, the lyrics in the description are laughably inaccurate.  I almost think whoever wrote it was combining two different songs by accident.

    zan man

    i think tbs lyrics in the liner notes have usually been different than what's sang. i've seen it on tell all your friends, where you want to be, etc

  14. Heath Anderson

    TAYF WYWTB and New Again are top three easily outside of Make Damn Sure there really isn't a lot going for Louder now.

    Andy Himself

    Spin, Liar, Error: Operator

    Heath Anderson

    I like all of those songs I just don't think they stand out as much as some of the other albums do.

    Witness Me

    What about "Spin"? Or "Error Operator"? Or "What's It Feel Like To Be a Ghost"? Or "Twenty-twenty Surgery"? Or "Blackout"?

  15. Kayla T

    Seriously, all this amazing music is bad for my wallet. Argh. But I love it all still. ^^'

    David Cipolla

    Kayla T cc

  16. Tyler Jones

    Why didn't they go back to victory records

  17. DylanL321

    This song is like Taking Back Sunday meets the Tides of Man album Empire Theory, but more so TBS. This is great! Definitely need to check out the rest of this album.

  18. Chester John

    There is definitely an A.F.I moment in the chorus

  19. Brian Reilley

    This gave me chills and the bridge was by far the craziest shit ive ever fucking heard.

  20. Tom Dabek

    No, This is Taking Back Sunday's Albums in order of best; 

    1.) Tell All Your Friends
    2.) Where You Want To Be
    3.) Happiness Is
    4.) Louder Now
    5.) New Again
    6.) Taking Back Sunday

    Daniel James

    spot on

  21. Sean Lawless

    I like this song because it sounds a lot like straylight run

  22. Steven Lund

    Wow Adam really screwed himself in this album. 1 in 50 odds he hits that high note at 2:58 in concert lol

    Daniel James

    he actually sounds much better now if youve seen a recent live vid

  23. KiwiWithAHat

    What do you guys think this song means?

    Daniel James

    i heard this interview and its how people cant accept change and beg for things and when they get it they just trash on it and they jump to put someones new work down basically

    WitherMasterB

    From Adam's reddit AMA. - "that actually came from this rant i had typed up one night after a discussion i overheard about the new season of arrested development. you see, people were saying over and over again about they wished the show never got cancelled or how they wished there were more episodes then when they go in and make another season, almost immediately people are complaining about it on the internet. saying things like "the original was way better" or "this sucks." without even seeing the whole season or taken into account that the creators, writers and actors of that show were giving them exactly what they wanted. it's crazy. it's sad to me that often times people just want to be the first to complain about something rather than the first to appreciate it for what it is. anyways, that was the spark behind that song."

  24. Voiceofthera

    This is a freaking awesome album!!

  25. foostafoom

    Reminds me of louder now! I love this!

  26. August Aguilar

    Brilliant. TBS has been amazing since the very beginning. I'll admit that I feel they lost some spunk when they lost Fred...but that doesn't stop these guys making killer music and doing what they love. This whole album is great, I've been listening to it on repeat as well. I hope they keep doing their thing and make beautiful music.

  27. Holden Harris

    This album made me like rock music again.

  28. Cameron Shoppee

    Why Work? If you don't have toooooo

  29. Torstein Veland Lokøy

    This song reminds me of Billy Talent!

    John Pederson

    Me too! 

  30. Cameron Shoppee

    This song is amazing!

  31. NCTarheel1985

    * Then Where You Wanna Be!

  32. NCTarheel1985

    Best ALBUM ORDER in my opinion: Happiness Is , Louder Now , Tell all your friends!

  33. Kotton Faced

    Probably one of my favorites off the record. Aside from "Better Homes and Gardens"; that hook though :D
    Sounds a ton like that grungy-well produced yet sketchy Louder Now sound.
    Greatnessssssss.

  34. ProfessorRJLupin

    Taking Back Sunday albums in order of brilliance:

    1. Louder Now
    2. Tell All Your Friends
    3. Happiness Is
    4. Where You Want to Be
    5. New Again
    6. Taking Back Sunday

    Gaz Radley

    I don't see how you can rank Taking Back Sunday's albums in order; my favourite changes every few months.

    Gaz Radley

    @Vinny H. Completely agree, not their best work but extremely underrated.

    Jeff Cirelli

    Tell all your friends followed by Where You Want To Be are the best two IMO.  I thought Louder Now was OK.  I wasn't crazy about New Again(but its still TBS, I liked it enough), and then Taking Back Sunday and the new Happiness Is, are very good.  

    But I dont think anything beats their first two. TAYF and WYWTB.  Epic music.

    Witness Me

    Now:
    1) Louder Now
    2) Tell All Your Friends
    3) Happiness Is
    4) Where You Want to Be
    5) Tidal Wave
    6) Taking Back Sunday
    7) New Again

    Richmond Villanueva

    1. Where You Want to Be
    2. Louder Now
    3. Taking Back Sunday
    4. Tell All Your Friends
    5. Happiness Is
    6. Tidal Wave/New Again

    IMO changing your signature sound to a more southern-country ala-Ramones and soft sound doesn't count as maturity nor growth, they sounded tired. That just my opinion.

  35. I Love Music!

    Best song from their new album!

  36. Ciaran HD

    Better than the self titled although that has some great tracks on it too, can't beat the first three albums though

    ProfessorRJLupin

    I actually like this better than Where You Want to Be, although that was a fantastic album as well.  Louder Now is the best!

    Ciaran HD

    Louder now was the first album I listened to by them so that has a special place in my heart!

    ProfessorRJLupin

    @Ciaran D Me too!  And the first song I heard from them was either "Spin" or "What's It Feel Like to Be a Ghost", I can't remember which.  I like that Happiness Is is directly in the same style as Louder Now. 

  37. RyanPm40

    Adam hasn't sounded this good in years. Best album the band has put out since Louder Now/New Again; it's been quite awhile since I've had a tbs album on repeat this much =p

  38. Sari Atiqa Ramli

    my fav!! ^_^

  39. J Vaughn

    Favorite cut off the album.

  40. Nick Ruiz

    These guys never fail! Great song!

  41. Mr. White

    Probably my favorite song on the album! It's hard. Sounds like it could be a track from Louder Now. Great album!

  42. ProfessorRJLupin

    AMAZING.  I adore this new album, and this is my favorite song from it.  Classic, Louder Now-era Taking Back Sunday.

  43. Daniel James

    adam kills it this whole record its insane

  44. Trololo1218

    Taking back sunday rules. Can't wait to see them
