Brand New - You Won't Know Lyrics




Hey hey hey! Mr. Hangman
Go get your rope

Your daughters weren't careful
I fear that I am a slippery slope
Now even if I lay my head down at night
After a day I got perfectly right

She won't know
She won't know

So pray little Kay, luck's God on a good day
And you can't blame your mother
She's trying not to see you as her worst mistake

And I wish that I could tell you right now (...I love you)
But it looks like I won't be around
So you won't know

You won't know
You won't know
You won't know

So believe in me, believe them
You think I'll let you down
Well I won't
They can fire everything they've got
And when you think I'm sunk
I will float on and on
I have burned the bush that covered my light
Even though I'm scared I won't burn that bright

You won't know
You won't know
You won't know

You're never gonna feel as full as we felt
So let's go outside and we'll play William Tell
Take your time drawing your bead
I'll stand as still as you need
'Cause you're so good at talking smack
You heart attack
But you're the apple of my eye anyway

My smiling face that's on your head that's on a silver plate

So they say
They say in heaven
There's no husbands and wives
On the day that I show up
They'll be completely out
Of their forgiveness supplies
And I can't use the telephone
To tell you that I'm dead and gone
So you won't know

You won't know
You won't know
Yeah, you won't know

Brand New You Won't Know Comments
  1. Wes Hubbard

    this one really just gets better w age

  2. Allie

    Of course I get into this band when they are no longer a band. This song and Degausser are straight up jams. There aren't too many albums that I can listen to without skipping a track. This is an exception. So good!

  3. TheRubberSoup

    2:33 That has to be the smoothest fucking transition I've ever heard.

  4. Will Cooper

    Peppa pig brought me here

  5. Kayla Dudley

    *praying*

  6. M0nkey

    stargate: universe, gone but not forgotten

  7. Jared Adkins

    3:10 - 3:31 is the most perfect thing I have ever heard. Wish that part was longer, I could listen to it for the rest of my life. Amazing song though

    F8 Struck

    Yeah I love it too.

  8. Rick Sumorya

    really all your bs comments and NO ONE mentions why the little girl is hiding from the masks(bad parents) sheep to the wolves aren't you all

    doyouevenlift 1744

    Well why is she?

  9. dale dean

    these guitars haunt me late into the night..

  10. Kidd

    my history teacher brought me here. he has great taste

    Lennon Hunt

    Kidd holy shit man same here😂 his name was Mr. Mecca and I think he said his favorite albums were this and Daisy

  11. Dj Bracamonte

    Still legendary af

  12. Jp111

    Real Music

  13. Elizabeth Shannon

    This song sounded really good to me when I was going through drug withdrawals.

  14. matheus

    I like this song, I like this album

  15. jjj

    "Your daughters weren't careful, I fear that I am a slippery slope"

    This line hits really hard now, given the context

  16. hey there

    This and Degausser have to be 2 of the best riffs in any 2000s album

  17. Lisa H

    I wish that I could tell you right now that I love you
    But it looks like I won’t be around so you won’t know

  18. Alissa Bartozzi

    Literally one of the best albums start to finish. Timeless. Amazing. Brand New.

  19. Christian Lane

    What's the meaning of this song?

    leon

    a woman he used to know died in a car accident

    Travis Harris

    @leon that's not what it's about lol

    seven

    Some people think it’s a continuation of their song Limousine because he refers to “Kay” which is the name of a girl who was decapitated by a drunk driver while in a limousine, but, no one really knows. Personally it feels like it’s about suicide or something.

  20. logan griffin

    This song is grunge af. The better nirvana

  21. J Lansdale

    This whole album is a motherfucking mssterpiece

  22. Filip Magáth

    wtf is stargate you all are talking about?? :D this band was introduced me thanks to tap tap reborn 2 :D those songs are just perfect and love them all (not Science Fiction album though :D) but Daisy and The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me should are pure gold. god i would like to see them live some point in my life

  23. Dr. IcedTea

    "She's trying not to see you as her worst mistake,
    and I wish that I could tell you right now (...I Love You)"

  24. Andrew Clarke

    I miss stargate universe. Damn glad it showed me this though!!!

  25. Daniel Gray

    Hello Mania.

  26. Audrey Foust

    So play little player, you gotta contend

  27. Danny H.

    Jesse knew better than to trade nudes with a minor, but one of the posts Nicole put out there said she “jumped at the opportunity to trade nude pictures with a cute guy in a popular band. I was young at the time and submissive.” I think there are way worse cases out there that should be focused on where the “victims” said “no, im underage”. I’ve been a Brand New fan for over 5 years now, they’re my favorite band to this day and I was really disappointed when i read Jesse’s response to the situation in my book. But i will continue supporting Jesse Lacey and Brand New despite past mistakes. I’m sorry that its affected Nicole so bad but this is not 100% Jesse’s fault, the pictures and skype calls could’ve been easily prevented by simply blocking him, but she chose to. I just feel there are rape cases where people choose the right decision but don’t end up having a decision in the end and its upsetting to me to see this actually turn into a rape case.. are you people really that hungry for justice? I see half of the Brand New “fans” say “Jesse is an asshole for what he did! im never supporting Brand New ever again!” and it sounds like they dont know the full story, so please before you start judging or taking Brand New’s songs out of your Spotify playlists, read the entire story. The bottom line is, Jesse messed up, he messed up big time.. and he definitely knew what he was doing. Legally, he should serve time because she was underage. But i think morally, shes a human being and had the right to make decisions, she chose poorly. So they’re both at fault in their own ways. If you choose to have sex with someone and then later in life decide it was a mistake, you cant just claim “rape”. Thats how i see the situation. (just trying to spread the word)

    udi0Point

    yeah dude. lets apologize for pedos in youtube comment sections, that's probably a good use of your time. Let's blame a fifteen year old girl for not blocking a huge star who wants to see you naked. lets do that, seems totally reasonable. I fucking loved this band my whole life and i can't even describe the crushing betrayal that jessie did to everyone who ever connected with his music. it taints every song for me now, wondering whether it was him trying to talk about his sickness. idk, dont apologize for him, makes you a part of it.

  28. Daniel Tallo

    "They can fire everything they've got
    And when you think I'm sunk
    I will float on and on"
    Such good fucking lyrics omg

  29. kaydaw24

    My friend Jan brought me here, left me. and now I just want to listen to the Cure

  30. Jake Martin

    My great taste in music brought get me here, you nerds

    Ben Drowned

    jokes on you

  31. William Byrd

    Lacey's vocals sound like Bert McCracken from The Used on this song.

  32. OO OO

    Tfw there's all these Star Gate Geeks here but /mu/ and Anthony Squatano was what brought you here.

  33. Rashotcake

    I never noticed the violin at the start of the song. Like I can hear it subtlety in the left channel

  34. Shanebagel

    SO PRAY

  35. Loser's Club

    I'm not saying that this is a bad song or anything, but it always felt kind of out of place on this album to me. Idk, the lyrics just throw me off. I'm pretty sure it is just me, and this is obviously just my opinion, but I'm sure I'm going to get a shit ton of replies telling me how wrong I am and how I should kill myself. I actually really like this song, but for whatever reason, it just doesn't seem to feel like it belongs on this album, and especially not in the spot it's on in relation to the rest of the album.

  36. blekvasha

    Trying to listen to all Brand New songs at a faster speed. Was recommended on Flying At Tree Level. Sounds kinda cool here at the Chorus.

  37. Bar Bara

    So let`s go outside and we`ll play Wilhelm Tell.

    Bar Bara William

  38. Brittany Kantack

    you'll never feel as full as you felt.

    Kaiderbulla

    A beautiful sentence...and really resonates in me. Drawing all kinds of memories to the surface. Love these lyrics, and luv ya for pointing this out. <3

    Larry .Karpov

    It will be okay ladies.

  40. Marcelo Carvalho Nascimento

    "You Won't Know"

    Hey hey hey! Mr. Hangman,
    Go get your rope

    Your daughters weren't careful,
    I fear that I am a slippery slope
    Now even if I lay my head down at night
    After a day I got perfectly right

    She won't know...
    She won't know...
    She won't know...

    So pray little Kay, love is just God on a good day.
    And you can't blame your mother,
    She's trying not to see you as her worst mistake
    And I wish that I could tell you right now (...I love you)
    But it looks like I won't be around
    So you won't know...

    You won't know...
    You won't know...
    You won't know...

    So believe in me, believe them
    You think I'll let you down
    Well I won't
    They can fire everything they've got
    And when you think I'm sunk
    I will float on and die
    I am fine to put your gun to my life
    And know I'm scared it won't fire right

    You won't know...
    You won't know...
    You won't know...

    You're never going to feel as full as you felt
    So let's go outside and we'll play William Tell
    Take your time drawing a bead
    I'll stand as still as you need
    'Cause you're so good at talking smack,
    You heart attack
    But you're the apple of my eye anyway

    My smiling face that's on my head is on a silver plate.

    So they say,

    You won't know...
    Yeah, You won't know...

    Yo got some of the lyrics wrong

  44. snakeyes1996

    star gate universe brought me here

    B. Rick A.

    Jeah Stargate brought me here... me too

    Marcus Ulin

    I had no idea that brand-new had a song used in Stargate, that's really awesome! I'd love to know what scene it is so I can look it up.

    TampaJoey Z230

    @Marcus Ulin Season 1 Episode 12 "Divided" - starts about 1 minute into the episode

    Marv Seifert

    Me tooo

  45. dale dean

    love the guitars in this

  46. Ellie vanforth

    I don't get what this song is about?

    David of House Leewright

    +Chasey Schock I've always felt it could have several meanings. Being unsure about how once you die, you won't be forgiven, knowing that you are the catalyst for problems in a relationship. Just my two cents.

    Steven Fletcher

    http://genius.com/Brand-new-limousine-ms-redbridge-lyrics#note-3572555

    Steven Fletcher

    an extension of the song Limousine about a girl who passed in a car accident returning home from a wedding when a drunk driver hit the limo.

    Zachary Klein

    Him wanting to kill himself because no one pays attention to him and he's better off dead and no one will know

    Simon Goddard

    I feel like its the mother's anger.

  47. Ellie vanforth

    I don't get what this song is about?

    Bryton Cherrier

    +Mike Johnson
    A lot of people think it's a continuation of Limousine because of the mention of Kay in this song. But I always took it as the alternate angle that it's about suicide though.

    crazy like a tiger

    his daughters!

    Steven Fletcher

    not his daughters. I dont believe were born back in 05 or 06. a continuation of Limousine which I believe references a girl who passed in a car accident? something along those lines.

    Bryton Cherrier

    You got that right Steven, she was decapitated by a drunk driver. :[

  48. Thomas Owen

    Now listen to Straylight Run - Hands in the Sky

    Franklin Lucius Higginbotham

    Holy shit, thank you for reminding me of Straylight Run. I haven't listened to them in like 10 years but I remember loving them, especially that song. I definitely see the similarities between this song and that one.

  49. Cecília F.

    caralho como eu amo essas músicas melancólicas <3

    milena cardoso

    quer ser amiga de musica?

    Ana Nery

    ahah somos duas.

    Jessica Dawson

    nick tiegs helped me as well.

  51. Ashley Panici

    this song mentions Kay--"So pray little Kay, love is just God on a good day"
    is this the same as the "K" for Kate in Limousine? hmmmmmm

    bulettstrike

    +Heather Williamson you are most welcome sweet lady

    Daniel Griffiths

    Stargate Universe had this song at the beginning of an episode and I fell in love with this song. Thats why so many people mention Stargate Universe or SGU when posting a comment.

    Anthony van Niekerk

    +Heather Williamson
    Stargate Universe introduced me to this song.

    Great show! Awesome soundtrack!

    H W

    @Daniel Griffiths @Anthony van Niekerk cool! I'm glad you are being introduced to great music by the show! I have always loved Brand New, so if you guys like them too and you like SGU, I will have to check out SGU :)

  75. David Atchison

    clever, cut 30 seconds off the front and add thirty quiet nothings at the end to get the same track length, Great song,

  76. RossBoss

    this is a dope fucking song

  77. Daniel Braddock

    I laughed out loud

  78. Ongun Kirtag

    eargasm

  79. iStaLLionZ

    Jesse Lacey himself said something along the lines of "When I was 21 I realized I knew nothing when I was 17, and when I turned 25 I realized I knew nothing at 21... life is an ongoing learning experience."
    I don't think those are his exact words, but they're damn close.

  80. GinaSaysHello

    it's called The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me. Amazing album:)

  81. MrGrazlek

    Stargate Universe ^^

  82. osmi galvez

    What's the album name? ._.

  83. creativeCAabstract

    DUDE! im in the exact shoes as you are.

  84. Kevin Wall

    I'm fucking crying.

  85. JFrattiniCox1177

    Anyone else here b/c of this fucking bullshit Zimmerman verdict? I'm just blasting this song...so pissed off right now. Fuck this country.

  86. djminehart

    Totally.

  87. Josh Meakin

    my point is that Doctor Who was consistently on the television airways with new episodes between 63-89, a longer period of time than Stargate, and therefore i would consider it as running continuously longer than Stargate.. Anyway doesn't really matter, both programmes are legendary.

  88. Travis Stefanski

    While the Doctor has certainly been a fixture in scifi fan’s lives for 40 years now, he has not been consistently on the television airways with new episodes during that entire 40 year period.

    ~ sliceofscifi. com

  89. Josh Meakin

    Dr. Who ran continuously from 1963-1989... Stargate was 1997-2008 i think? ..If you're referring to the modern era Dr. Who then yes Stargate has been running longer, but at one point Dr. Who had been going for 26 years

  90. Travis Stefanski

    Dr. Who has had instances where they stopped the series and then started up again whereas Stargate is the longest continuous running SciFi series as far as I know. I should've said continuous in my comment.

  91. Dimmy

    Stargate is amazing but it s far from being the longest running sci-fi series...
    Have you heard of Dr Who? :p

  92. brianna mahon

    WHY WOULD YOU SKIP THE INTRO! This whole album is such a fantastic album and the build ups of the intros are what makes these songs!

  93. HnanPT

    They skip like the entire first 30 seconds of the song, which really bothers me. And I'm telling only you, specifically, Valheru G.

  94. jonnois

    fuck you

  95. Valheru G

    Such a great build up.

  96. davidpds98

    shitty song

  97. Sophie Sanborn

    Thanks! I'll definitely start watching Stargate or Atlantis...they sound kind of interesting... :D
