"I Get It" as written by and Peter/loeffler Loeffler....
So you say you're ignored
As it is
Well, give us your sad, sad trip

You're right, I get it
It all makes sense, you're the perfect person
So right, so wrong
Let's all live in your imaginary life

Assumed it's whether
We're right, I'm wrong
We're doomed, and there's plenty for all

How dare you catch me counting
How dare you call at all
How dare you call it suffering
How dare you call at all

You're right, I get it
It all makes sense, you're the perfect person
So right, so wrong
Let's all live in your imaginary life

Press on these tannins
They're doubled in time
The touch of life, once failed to mention so far

Of course the la is fountains
Of face to face remorse
A fast and restless blackmail
Like pent-up fetish force

You're right, I get it
It all makes sense, you're the perfect person
So right, so wrong
Let's all live in your imaginary life

Do you want enough?
Do you want it all?
Should you need it at all?
Takes a minute to see
Do you want enough?
Do you want it all?
Should you need it at all?
Do you want it or not?

You're right, I get it
It all makes sense, you're the perfect person
So right, so wrong
Let's all live in your imaginary life

Life, life, life

    General Commentas read from their website, the song is a motovational cry to help those afraid to chase their dreams... i can see how they mean it

    most people make up excuses for why they cant do something and to them they are justified in what they say and believe that what ever someone says is wrong so hes critisizing tose people as to sayin sarcastically "ok im wrong and ur right" when he reall means your wrong u can do it... people live in an imaginary life because they are too afraid of what is real and hes saying that they need to get awway from that fear and just go do waht u can, do u want your dream to come tru? dou u want ut enough to go chase it? (the bridge is saying this)

    General CommentThis is, in my opinion, the best Chevelle song period. And I own all of their CDs. This song is catchy and awesome and I love the lyrics. I wish they'd make more like this.

    My InterpretationTannin solutions are acid and have an astringent taste. Tannin is responsible for the astringency, colour, and some of the flavour in tea. Tannins occur normally in the roots, wood, bark, leaves, and fruit of many plants, particularly in the bark of oak species and in sumac and myrobalan. When tannins are pressed polyphenols release from the skins, seeds and stems when they soak in the grape juice just after the grapes have been pressed and are what give certain wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, their characteristic dryness or astringency. ... We say a wine that is high in tannins is tannic.

    Press on these tannins
    They're doubled in time
    The touch of life, once failed to mention so far -

    *so seeing what tannins are we can come to a conclusion that he's speaking of pressing wine and doing it quickly I assume (doubled in time) to get the most out of the tannins (more wine), Jesus turned water into wine so I assume this is a reference to that.

    I do believe it's the law of fountains as opposed to the la of fountains, cause "la" is a musical scale note so that would be no sense

    As for the "the law is fountains" I googled what's the law of fountains and first thing that popped up was this Proverb -

    The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
    *So maybe that's what Chevelle was referencing, their lyrics are very intelligent and beg for deep interpretation normally, and that proverb makes sense with how they write their lyrics, so thoughtfully. Also teamed with the tannin interpretation I think it follows the spiritual element present in many Chevelle lyrics so it fits.
    So he's telling this person who's believes there way is the way and they're always right that maybe the path their on is the wrong one, they should go in a positive life affirming direction, not into the snares of death as they are seemingly headed.

    General CommentMy favourite lines have to be;
    "How dare you catch me counting.
    How dare you all at all"

    And

    "Of course the law is fountains
    Of face to face remorse."

    If anyone could tell me what they think the latter means, I'd love to know. DX

    General Commentyeah what screamline said aligns with the song pretty well (must be true, since i haven't a clue on my own). my personal fave song on the album (the bassline is AMAZING) next to SJF and antisaint.

    General Commenti don't see how what screamline said makes sense. i know it's from the website and it's correct and all, but i got something else from this song. it seems to me like he saying that this person always thinks they're right and there's nothing he can say or do to prove this person wrong. the chorus is sarcastic, saying that this person thinks they're perfect and he's not going to try to prove them wrong, but one day they'll realize that they're not so perfect and they won't get their way all the time.
