Somewhere the time was right, could have been gone in ten
This world is hard to fight, hitting you once, hit it again
To know the way it feels, everyone gets knocked down
When you get up it¹s real, by taking it back, turn it around

Get on it, up on it
Get on it ­ wouldn't wanna be you
Get on it, out on it
Get on it ­ no one¹s gonna free you
You know, when you¹re keeping it slow
No matter where you wanna go ­ wouldn¹t wanna be you
Get on it, up on it
It's on ­ we're living in chaos

Somewhere along the line, things get chipped away
This place keeps going down, gets a little worse every day
I see hate and greed, this world¹s a messed up town
Embrace the pain and see, by taking it back, you turn it around

Get on it, up on it
Get on it ­ wouldn't wanna be you
Get on it, out on it
Get on it ­ no one¹s gonna free you
You know, when you¹re keeping it slow
No matter where you wanna go ­ wouldn¹t wanna be you
Get on it, up on it
It's on ­ we're living in chaos

    General Commentthis song is about taking all of the pain that the world gives you and turning it back on the world. whenever I hear it, I think of Professor Chaos/Butters from "South Park"

    General Commentwhat do they say at the beginning of this song? Some strange thing about soemthing going like this.

    I think it's best that you don't try and spend your time trying to decode the meaning of punk rock and just fuckin love the music.

    General Commentmany people have told me they found this song too repetetive. Normully I get annoyed at any repetertivness in music however there's something good about it in this song and makes it catchy. Again, Dex sings this so well! His vocals are amazing XD
    I am not entirley sure what it's really about but I have a vague idea, I am not good with song meanings but my impression is it's how life in general can be rough and you can sometimes find yourself constantly fighting it...well that's what it seems like to me

    General CommentYeah, it's somewhat repetitive, but the great guitar lines more than make up for that.

    General CommentI love this song, I've had it stuck in my head all day.
    The very beginning part is
    'Gotta sing a song, man it goes like this'
