"Out of the Races and Onto the Tracks" as written by and Matthew Brian Safer Luke Jenner....
Get yourself together
Get yourself together
Shake shake shake shake shake
Shake shake shake
Shake shake shake
Shake

Get yourself together
Take it all on chair
Get yourself together
Mothers in a lawn chair
Electric come to get in
Verbal litigation
Out of the races and in to the track
Punishment in higher places
People they are weird

And people they act strange
Get yourself together
Shake shake shake shake
Shake shake shake shake
People they are weird
And take yourself for rent
All I see is all I see is all I see is
Punishment in higher places

    General Commenti thought this whole album was about people from New Jersey. Just look at the cover, that arrow's pointing at Jersey. This song talks about the masses of people from Jersey that commute to New York, the "higher place".

    General CommentI bought this album at a show in Seattle. I gave away the vinyl version of this ep a couple of days after seeing them live.. I fell in love with this song 4 minutes later.

    General CommentFuck everything n have a good time.
    You don't really know what anyone means by what they do.
    Give yourself time to think, but not too much.
    Don't let life slow you down.
    There are bigger things to worry about, they're just in places that are "higher" and harder to reach.
    Enjoy the ride, cuz all you see is all you see is all you see.

    "Life happens too fast for you ever to think about it. If you could just persuade people of this, but they insist on amassing information."
    -Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

    I heard that quote a little while ago and this song reminded me of it.

    Sick song, by the way.
