Brand New - Limousine (MS Rebridge) Lyrics




K, it's your ride.
Get your petals out and lay them in the aisle
Pretend your garden grows and it's your day to wed.
We found your man,
He's drinking up, he's all-American.
And he'll drive.
He's volunteered with grace to end your life,
We'll tidy up,
It's sad to hope, but leave your shell to us,
You explode,
You firefly, you tiny boat with oars,
Feather oars. The world tilts back and poison pours.
And so, you satellite.
You tidal wave, you big surprise.
And I one more night to be your mother.

This signal interrupts,
Baby's frequency's not strong enough.
Remade my hands and smile.
We will miss you but in time you'll get set up,
We will write!

A beauty supreme, yeah you were right about me,
But can I get myself out from underneath this guilt that will crush me,
And in the choir I saw a sad messiah,
He was bored and tired of my laments,
Said, "I died for you one time but never again."

Never again [repeat]

Well I love you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

Well I love you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

One'll love you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

Two'll love you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

Three'll love you so much, but do me a favor, baby don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

Four'll love you so much, but do me a favor, baby don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

Five'll will love you so much, but do me a favor, baby don't reply,
Because I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

Six'll love you so much, but do me a favor, baby don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

Seven loves you so much, but do me a favor, baby don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

I said loved you so much, but do me a favor, baby don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I can't take it.

[In background:]
We'll never have to buy adjacent plots of earth
We'll never have to rot together underneath dirt
I'll never have to lose my baby in the crowd
I should be laughing right now
We'll never have to buy adjacent plots of earth
We'll never have to rot together underneath dirt
I'll never have to lose my baby in the crowd
I should be laughing right now

Brand New Limousine (MS Rebridge) Comments
  1. ssssssssss

    the automative industry is responsible for so much death

  2. Michael Richardson

    SO SO SAD X RIP KATIE FLYNN XXX

  3. NU TV

    This is fucking sad

  4. MrWolfSnack

    "Limousine" is about the death of seven-year-old Katie Flynn from the band's hometown of Long Island. Travelling home with her family after a wedding, their limousine was hit by drunk driver Martin Heidgen, a few miles from where Lacey was living at the time, leading to the decapitation of the young Flynn, whose severed head fell into her mother's arms.

    In the track, Lacey tells the story from various perspectives, including that of Flynn's mother, Heidgen and Flynn herself. Lacey has commented that the story particularly resonated with him as he knew people who drove drunk the week the accident took place. Producer Mike Sapone had the idea to include samples of explosions in the track, hence the subtitle "MS Rebridge", with MS being Sapone's initials.

    At seven minutes and forty-two seconds, it remained Brand New's longest song until 2017's "Batter Up," which is eight minutes and twenty-eight seconds long. The track's bridge repeats itself seven times as Lacey counts up, one for each year of Flynn's life. "Limousine" is often cited as Brand New's greatest song.

    -----------------------
    CNN - 3 July 2005
    In the early hours of 3 July 2005, a drunk driver traveling at 70 miles per hour the wrong way down a highway crashed into a limousine carrying several members of Katie’s family, who were returning home after a wedding.

     An off-duty security officer returning home from work was first on the scene. “I approached the limo driver, and I guess I went into shock,” says New York State court officer Michael Lerardi. “It looked like an explosion. The motor, basically, was just sitting on top of him. I knew he was dead.” The limo driver, 59-year-old Stanley Rabinowitz, was killed instantly.

    Next to arrive was Lt. Michael Tangney, the bride’s uncle, who had attended the wedding just hours before. “I was walking to the rear of the limousine when a gentleman was coming away from it, and he said, ‘Don’t go back there. It’s bad,'” Lt. Tangney says. “I opened the rear door to the limousine and realized it was my family.”

    Lt. Tangney’s brother — Jennifer’s father, Chris — was lying on the floor, his legs wrapped around the service bar, broken in numerous places. The rest of the family was piled on top of each other. Jennifer’s mother, Denise, was severely injured, as was Jennifer’s husband, Neil, who tried to crawl out of the limo to get help despite his broken back.

    Five-year-old Grace was also trapped inside the wreckage. Jennifer, whose foot was injured, managed to climb out and was searching for Katie, who had been lying on the side seat before the crash. “We couldn’t find Kate,” Lt. Tangney says. Then, Jennifer made a devastating discovery — Katie had been decapitated by her seat belt.

    “Then all of a sudden Mrs. Flynn came out of the car with her child’s head in her hand,” says Michael Lerardi, one of the 70 paramedics and police officers who were called to the scene. "I got numb. I thought I was going to collapse,” says Officer Christopher Pandolfo. “I looked into the back of the limousine, and I saw Katie’s remains. She was wearing this dress, and I just started shaking.” Jennifer walked to side of the road and sat for about an hour with her daughter's severed head on her lap as she watched her family being cut out of the limousine.

    J Lansdale

    That just shook me. I wish i didnt read that.

    Lurkinster

    long island is not a town

    source: i live on long island

  5. A Bro

    There’s something about looking at their album cover while playing their songs. It’s unfathomable, just perfect.

  6. Warbigold

    Sounds very disrespectful to me the way he sings from the mother's POV with his over the top sad voice without having any connection to her. (plus the fact that, you know, it's a song about a little girl getting decapitated in a car accident)

    Waterbed body Richard

    You are an idiot.

    First Name Last Name

    🤦🏻‍♀️

  7. evi

    I looove you so much, but do me a favor baby don't reply, cause I can dish it out but I can't take it

  10. em märie

    Jesse lacey.. If you ever look up your own songs and read the comments.. Just know i have loved you my whole life.

  11. missallycemarie

    I found out a few hours ago that two of my friends (husband and wife) were killed in a high speed accident. Killed by an idiot 18 year old driving a stolen car at 130kms per hour in the wrong lane, leaving their 2 year old orphaned (who fortunately wasn't in the car with them). This song is hitting me hard.

  12. Ben.

    That whole section starting at about 2:20 gives me the most intense chills I've ever had. This song is such a masterpiece.

  13. Ben.

    I died for you one time but never again...

    John Jonathan

    Why does this line hit so hard

    Proliferating Profligate

    @John Jonathan That entire section of the song does an incredible job of conveying the sense of crushing guilt that the driver must have felt. A mistake so heinous that even the messiah is disgusted with you. Followed by the haunting promise of "never again", but it's too little too late.

  14. madman2541

    By far the best lyric I've ever heard in my life

  15. CASKET6OY

    First heard this album when I was in 6th grade around the ages of 11-12 now I’m gonna be 21 in like 2 weeks and this album is still one of the greatest known to man. Fuck these songs always hit me deep now.

  16. Free Man

    Thank you for showing me what love is. And why I can't have it.

  17. Borislav Bačić

    It's a good song but the sound quality is questionable. Maybe it's just my headphones aren't good for this kinda music.

  18. applepornography

    This song sounds a lot like one of the songs in the album "Horses in the Sky" by A Silver Mount Zion, "God Bless our Dead Marines".

  19. Amanda Conklin

    "I don't know what's going on, maybe you can fill me in." brand new perfectly explained exactly what was going on.

  20. Amanda Conklin

    8 people never got a reply.

  21. Ben L

    I think that "the signal interrupts" refers to the little girl's brain signals being cut off by being decapitated by the drunk driver. The violence of the lyric, combined with the immediate guitar scream, implies the sudden, titular event.

    Lord Nome

    Ben L your mom’s a titular event

  22. Andrew Culross

    saw this them in concert the other night, best fucking song i've heard live

  23. JorgéCorona91

    i had an accident 4 weeks ago while this was playing i was driving from the vet with my dog and i was hit head on my dog was in the passenger seat and didn't survive. The guy who hit me was at fault he had no drivers license and the car didn't belong to him he was also high on drugs.

    Mikey Murder

    I'm so sorry

  24. Russell neumann

    perfect song to initiate emotions your never thought you've felt before

  31. Em Langrell

    Awesome

  32. Em Langrell

    This song feels good and hurts at the same time....

    Carson Durham

    Em Langrell I think that's what makes Brand New such a powerful band. There are so many feel good songs and so many sad songs, but the perfect blend of the two is rare, yet they have so many of them (sorry for replying to a year old comment)

    Frank da tank all day

    Just like life

  33. Heath Anderson

    How is this quality compared to the actual CD?

    SirHonig

    The same.

    DecayToDeath

    @SirHonig No it isn't, YouTube compresses audio.
