"Get Up" as written by and John Feldmann....
I see the lips move
But all I hear is shit
They act so natural
Faking crimes they don't admit

We need action on the street
Moving with our feet
It's time to shout out loud
It's time to start a movement
And there's no time like right now

It's time to
Get up, get up, get up
Why don't you
Stand up, stand up, stand up
It's time to
Get up, get up, get up
Why don't you
Stand up, stand up
It's time to start a fight

Monkey see, monkey do
But all they see is death
Electrocuting, cut 'em up
Watch them take their last breath

We need action on the street
Moving with our feet
It's time to shout out loud
It's time to start a movement
And there's no time like right now

It's time to
Get up, get up, get up
Why don't you
Stand up, stand up, stand up
It's time to
Get up, get up, get up
Why don't you
Stand up, stand up
It's time to start a fight

I've held my breath so many times
When I'm praying for the tortured souls
But your souls they seem to be done for
Your bodies they've waged wars
So what gives them the right
To take your life from you
Why do they all play God?
Who said that is your job

It's time to
Get up, get up, get up
Why don't you
Stand up, stand up, stand up
It's time to
Get up, get up, get up
Why don't you
Stand up, stand up
It's time to start a fight

I've heard it's a rat race
And their racing 'till they're dead
(get up, get up, get up)
Your pesticides commit homicides
With their frozen:
I've heard it's a rat race
And their racing 'till they're dead
(get up, get up, get up)
Your pesticides commit homicides
With their frozen:

Now it's time to start a fight

    General Commentespecially with their history of pro-animal rights, there's nothing else that this song could be about. i think that it might even be specifically be aimed at Huntingdon Life Sciences with the line "Your pesticides commit homicides".
