I So Hate Consequences Lyrics - Relient K

Review The Song (20)

And I'm good, good, good to go
I got to get away
Get away from all of my mistakes

So here I sit looking at the traffic lights
The red extinguishes the hope that the green ignites
I want to run away I want to ditch my life
Cause all of my mistakes keep me awake at night

And after all of my alibis desert me
I just want to get by
I don't want nothing to hurt me
I had no idea where my head was at
But if my heart says I'm sorry can we leave it at that
Because I just want for all of this to end

And I so hate consequences
And running from you is what my best defense is
sponsored links
Oh God, don't make me face up to this
And I so hate consequences
And running from you is what my best defense is
Cause I know that I let you down
And I don't want to deal with that

It just now hit me this is more than just a set back
And when you spelled it out, well, I guess I didn't get that
And every trace of momentum is gone
And this isn't turning out the way I want

And after all of my alibis desert me
I just want to get by
I don't want nothing to hurt me
I had no idea where my head was at
But if my heart says I'm sorry can we leave it at that
Because I just want for all of this to end

And I spent all last night
Tearing down
Every stoplight
And stop sign in this town
Now I think there might
Be no way to stop me now
I'll get away despite
The fact I'm so weighed down

All of my escapes have been exhausted
I thought I had a way but then I lost it
And my resistance was once much stronger
And I know I can't go on like this much longer

When I got tired of running from you
I stopped right there to catch my breath
There your words they caught my ears
You said, "I miss you son. Come home"
And my sins, they watched me leave
And in my heart I so believed
The love you felt for me was more than
The love I'd wished for all this time
And when the doors were closed
I heard no I told you so's
I said the words I knew you knew
Oh God, Oh God I needed you
God all this time I needed you, I needed you

And I so hate consequences
And running from you is what my best defense is
I hate these consequences
Because I know that I let you down
Now I don't wanna deal with that

it's about a lot of things | Reviewer: joker | 7/21/11

it could be about a loss of a family member, being screwed over for graduation at a high school at the last minute, feeling sad about one's distasteful past... it's a song about running away from your embarrassment and mistakes.

Meaning? | Reviewer: Forhavu | 6/18/11

Actually, while it is about God, the interpretation of a mother and a child is not so off the mark.

In a way, our relationship with God is much like a kid and his parent.

He loves us all and cares for us as his own children.

He is, anyway, called the Holy Father.

So in a way, it is interpretable as a parent and their child.

A lot of Christian songs are vague about God, if you notice, only using 'you's. Many people start arguing whether or not its about God.

The point is that people who do not interpret it as God (whether they are Christian or not) can still relate to the song. They could interpret it as a relationship with a girl/boy or parents or anything, even if it was about God. That's the point of the songs rarely saying 'God' in their songs.

So there's nothing to argue.

Its about how we see it. God, parents, a crush, anything. It's what you interpret it.

Who cares? | Reviewer: Connie | 4/27/11

I'm athiest and this song is still awesome. I love Relient K, whether they are singing about an invisible man in the sky or not. I don't care, they're talented and their music is relate-able even being Athiest. I sometimes run from consequences, too. Not from some god, but you put a little of your self in every song, even if you interpret it differently.

wow | Reviewer: kate | 9/3/10

Ummmm those of you who say this ISNT about God, really look at the lyrics. It most definately IS about God... yes maybe it could be about those other things, but look at the deeper meaning, be LOGICAL! Yes, not all of relient K's songs are talking about God, but this one is. I LOOOOVE relient k, and this is DEFINATELY one of my favorites. "Oh God, Oh God I needed you, God all this time i needed you, i needed you" my favorite line. The line that makes it obvious they are talking about God. The line that every day when I'm SOOOOO frustrated brings me BACK to where I need to be: realizing I can't do it on my own, I've tried, and failed "been there done that." GOD I NEED YOU!!!!!!

I just love this song so much! | Reviewer: Ryan | 5/13/10

This is my favorite Relient K song of all time. I just love how it gets the message through that even if we make a few mistakes, we can turn to God for advice and that he will always forgive us for our mistakes. This song is just the bomb!

Doesn't have to be about god | Reviewer: Alex | 4/26/10

Just because this is a christian band and just because it could be about god doesn't mean it is. It just depends on what your values and beliefs are. I'm Hmong(an Asian group) and i think this band kicks ass even though I don't BELIEVE in god.

This is one of the few songs that is true! | Reviewer: Superfreak | 11/24/09

I hate how most songs talk about giving glory to GOD. don't get me wrong, GOD is amazing, and he deserves every song to be about him. But I like when songs talk about just wanting to get away from our mistakes, because that's the best time we can praise GOD. PRAISE THE LORD.
Psalms 21:1- The LORD is my shepard.

It's about God, but through good ol' rock and roll... LOVE IT! | Reviewer: anomynous | 4/21/09

Great song but guys, to summarize the song, it's all about people screwing up all the time, and when they need to get a break from all of it, God is waiting for them, with love and forgiveness. Not about drugs, not about someone's mom, but GOD! Want proof? Check Relient K's home page, they'll say on at least one page they are for God with their music!

this is totally about god you dorks | Reviewer: ilovejesus | 1/1/09

How a perosn can listen to this song and still say that it's not about god...well they are in complete denile and need to stop running from god... Your are TOTALLY missing the point that relient k is trying to make here...and yes, relient k is a christian band...it's like my friend always says "it's sneeky jesus, your getting witnessed to and don't even know it"

understand | Reviewer: doesntmatter | 12/11/08

if u think its about a person witha mother, father, god. does it really matter? the song has meaning one that many of us take differently for me its to explain to someone something that i my self cant say. so dont say it has nothing to do with a mother or god... because yeah it might say god in it but people use the word god pretty freely... idk...
