"Get Up, Get Up, Get Up" as written by and Brian Leseny Fennell....
Five days after black and red collide
The motion sickness past, I’ll be the first to stand
Behind that weathered door, I thought it would be safest
My head is dizzy now, I thought we’d overcome
We might not make it home tonight

Crawling on the ash, she’s pitiful
She's lost her sense of light, she has to hold my hand
Had I known we might be two kids without their jackets
My fear would come alive, I wouldn’t love her now
She might not make it home tonight

Get up, get up, get up
I need you, get up, get up, get up
Get up, get up, get up
Get up, get up

    General CommentI took this as a couple after a car accident. Black and red - two cars collide. He's the first to stand because he's okay, but the girl is hurt so badly she can't get up. All he can do is hold her hand and hope that they make it home together.

    Song MeaningAs long as they are together they could possibly get through things. together they are strong. "and i know we might be to kids without there jackets" song is so powerful. GET UP !

    General Commentbeautiful song. but their lyric booklet says 'motion sickness past' instead of 'passed.' that sorta gives it a different meaning

    General CommentThe first line has some pretty deep symbolism in it. the 5 days refers to pain and suffering and black and red refer to death and love. so death and love are colliding and it has caused pain and suffering. he has goten over the tragedy and is the first one to do so. the door refers to some sort of transition that he thought would be good but it didnt work out so well and this love he has might not last......

    Song MeaningI actually envisioned a post atom-bomb recovery. It fits quite well. They waited five days after the impact, he finally woke up and got the strength to stand up from where the building that they were in(he found a place behind a door right before the impact) and he fears that they will die. She can't see because the flash blinded her so she crawls on the ashes towards him. [not too sure about the jacket part] but he is very hurt because he cares for her so much yet she looks as if she will not make it. Its Tragic but beautiful.
