Call it what you like if right
Lorene love - don’t you know I fell too hard,
hearts never broke so well"

Yep, got the name wrong. How much did you say you couldn't understand? All of it, right?

I know we are all talking about Tom’s vocals live but let’s be grateful the guitar does not sound like ass for once.

Yeah, the song is god awful

You seem to be the only person in all of blink-182 land to feel this way. Maybe you should re-evaluate.

The funny/sad thing is if blink wasn't releasing terrible kidz bop music right now I don't think anyone would care AS much.  It's just so refreshingly good.  It just plays right into Tom's hands.

This is objectively better than plenty of AvA though.  So it might still have made buzz.

The song has nice instrumentation but someone else should sing it. It's not just that the quality of Tom's voice is bad but the pretentious way he delivers it makes it unbearable.

Yea the intros weird, very different from the rest of the song. Not my favorite part, but I’m happy to finally have a vocal intro that’s separate from the rest of the song after years.

He delivered it pretentiously?! Huh?

Tom's "range" these days seems to be limited to low, kinda monotonic bits like the first verses of EISF and Tunnels. Anything else he tries he ends up butchering.

I am not surprised that the blink haters and tombots are lapping it up. Some of you even claimed to love Rebel Girl, which was far worse than this one. Tombots are quite loyal, it's their only redeemable quality

This and the lyrics are nonsensical and annoying. So put that together with the pretentious delivery and it's enough to ruin a song that may have had some potential at one point

Really love these lyrics:

"My hearts a little bit tired,
And expired,
Just a coward in lift-off

It’s got a little bit risky
To be happy
Toe the edge til we fall off

I’m living the worst way ever
Gettin’ high while playin’ with fire so-
If I’m gonna go try this
Satisfy this
watch the bomb I made go off"

You know what I like...it just sounds like Tom writing a song that HE wants to write/hear. He's not catering to anyone. It's a genuine Tom song.

*co-written with producer Aaron Rubin, not even in the band*

Yeah Mark and Travis, maybe enen Matt, could've salvaged the song

This is sad, Ghent is starting to sound like Trump just as much as Oliver does. Everything's a conspiracy, I'm the only one who is being truthful, everyone else is a troll, the thing that people claim to like is actually garbage, always deflect never give an inch blah blah blah.

lol, uh, what?

I'm offering no conspiracy here. The song just isn't very good. Despite having some energy and some decent guitar at parts, it still manages to be boring as fuck. Gets worse on subsequent listens. Might actually prefer Rebel Girl because at least it is slightly catchy in its shittiness.

Plus he had to have a producer help him write it. Pathetic
