about

After the release of their last EP, (the acoustic-driven Appendicies & Other Minor Distractions) The Goodbye Theory made some serious efforts to evolve and expand on their songwriting. The result is this 2016 release, the We’ve Got a Bad Feeling About This EP. Feeling inspired by some indie rock shows that the band saw over the summer, they put together a new approach to writing music, and the results have really propelled the band forward. This is a straight-ahead rock record, with lots of energy and loud guitars. It’s an album with lots of attitude, a lot of bravado, and it shows a new confidence in the band. This is The Goodbye Theory version 2.0

Track Name: I Seem to Have Alienated All of My Friends
Where the hell did all my fucking friends go?
It seems like they just all moved far away
I want to tell them something that I just thought of
But I can’t remember why they didn’t stay
Yesterday there were so many of you
We’d sing and play, hang out and talk all night
but we grew up and we got old in spite of
The promises we made to never change
I guess we can’t hang out, because there’s too many excuses
and we can’t go out, and drink far too many juices
and just to make it clear, by juices I mean beer
I had to change some words to make it rhyme in the song
Many of you now have your own families
and I’m just staying up late watching TV
I don’t have too many responsibilities
I just wish things could stay the way they used to be
I guess we can’t hang out, because you’re trying to stay sober
and we can’t go out, for breakfast nursing our hangovers
I’ll try to make it right, by staying far out of your site
We never said it but you needed me to go
We can’t hang out, because there’s too many excuses
we can’t go out, and drink far too many juices
we can’t hang out, because you’re trying to stay sober
we can’t go out, for breakfast nursing our hangovers
we can’t hang out because of all the cancellations
we can’t go out because you always have your reasons
I really don’t know why, you don’t even want to try
I really miss you all and I want you back to stay
I guess you think we’re really better off this way
Track Name: Don't Tell Me How I Really Feel
Well she didn’t call the doctor, because she didn’t want to think
About the good things and the bad, and all emotions in between
But just because you ignore it, doesn’t mean it goes away
and you’ll have to face it soon

There are angels looking down from up above
but that doesn’t mean they’ll help you, their hands are tied like yours and mine
and I hope that you find peace and love in a world that is so cruel
But you’ll have to face it soon
and you’ll have to face it soon

There are things that you’ll regret in life and there are things that’ll make you proud
I hope that I can fall somewhere in between
You never had to think about a world you had to face from up above
but you’ll have to face it soon

The time has come to put all your fears away
I can show you how, hold up your head and face the day
Don’t try to fight it, we both know you’re smarter than you think
Choose to ignore it, it’s time to face the consequence
Track Name: Black & White & Red All Over
So here we are now once again
I thought that things would change and we could still be friends

You said that I should walk away
But it shouldn’t have to end this way

Turn back the hourglass of time
To the days when you were glad that you were mine

I couldn’t bear to walk alone
Your pretty face has turned to stone

We’ve face this many times before
but you never pushed me out the door

The dream we had together died
In the time that I could read right through your lies

I’m sick of everything that’s changed
I’m glad that I just walked away
Why did you fail to tell the truth?
Thrown all away because of you
Track Name: Some Disappointment You Turned Out to Be
Each day I live is a disappointment
and half the time I don’t know what to do
Every day I’m someone’s disappointment
Another day to lose my faith in you

I tried to run away but you were on my heels
It doesn’t matter now, because I know the deal
When I was down and out, I lied for way too long
I’m trying hard to prove you wrong

Today I am fighting disappointment
I want to break the chains that hold me down
I’m holding on to your own disappointment
I’m pulling through and I want to stick around

It doesn’t matter now, you walked all over me
I fought you tooth and nail but it wasn’t meant to be
Try turning things around and live to fight another day
It wasn’t supposed to be this way

Give me another chance I’m ready to begin
You won’t forgive me though, and that’s your biggest sin
I want to tell you now exactly how I feel
I think by now you should know the deal

Each day I live is a disappointment
and half the time I’m disappointing you

I’m starting to think you’re the disappointment
how could I rise up in your point of view?
Its good to know I’m not a disappointment
Well not to everyone, it’s only you

Yes it’s true, that’s just what I think about you
you wonder how it was that I knew
That it was time to walk away
Track Name: Haven't We Done This Enough?
It’s Friday night and I gotta get this feeling right
I lost my pride but I haven’t given up the fight
That’s fine I’m used to proving people wrong
you wanted to change my mind and I don’t want to fade away

So I’m taking all your giving and I still want more
How many times can you try to push me out the door?
That’s fine I choose to just ignore the hint
and I can change my mind and hope you don’t just fade away

You said that you wanted me to change my mind
The last time that I didn’t let my feelings hide
That’s right I think I did all this for you
Before I could change my mind, just before I fade away

It’s Friday night and I finally got this feeling down
I walk the line but my world is turning upside down
Why cry? Just lift your head and face the day
I thought I could change my mind and I refuse to fade away

When I try to break away, you know how to make me stay
even if I say that I don’t want to
After all is said and done, you like to think that you’re the one
and I hope that I am nothing like you

I’m trying hard to just ignore their point of view
I found it’s easier to let it go, how ‘bout you?

It’s Friday night and I gotta get this feeling right
I lost my pride but I haven’t given up the fight
That’s fine I’m used to proving people wrong
you wanted to change my mind and I don’t want to fade away

It doesn’t matter what you say, you will never make me stay
now that I know all about you
You ignore me all the time, and it’s time to draw the line
I want to let it go, how ‘bout you?
Track Name: Just Another Sunday Night
I’ve been drinking through the pain for days now
trying to find the will to get off the floor
things continue falling through my fingers
reminds me of a place I’ve been before
Everything has become comp-li-ca-ted
I want to change before I lose it for good
Do I really have to just start over
or can I figure out a way to move on

It’s in my blood – yeah
and I don’t want to run away
I just want to fit in
It’s in my blood – yeah
but I think I have it figured out
I’m ready to begin

I’m trying to gather all the missing pieces
but someone told me that I can’t find them all
I’ll just have to search from deep within me
I’ll break some bones, get up, and just fall back down
Why did life just get so com-pli-ca-ted
I thought that everything was settling down
But that’s before this shit storm started
when everything was going great in this town

We’re going to find you
and figure out just how to drain your blood
It’ll soon be over
we don’t need it, we’ll do it just for fun
why are you crying
this isn’t up for a debate
it’s almost over

it’s all In Your Blood!
In Your Blood
In Your Blood

It’s amazing what you can accomplish
when everybody holds a gun to your head
the time is now for me to cry your pardon
for helping out before I ended up dead
things are changing now for the better
I think I’m finally finding com-mon ground
I hope I never lose sight of what’s important
If I do I’ll shuffle off with no sound
