"Get Up Get Out" as written by Kelly Crisp and Ivan Howard....
Spring is sinking into our bones
Sudden rains have brought temptation
And contempt to our tongues
But on the other side of this dividing wall
There’s a never-ending feast and shoes with pearls
Their iron gates will rust
And out of this darkness we’ll run

So get up get out and fill the streets
Let’s dance in the ash of the big chimneys
I know it’s late but lead us there
We’ll meet our friends everywhere

So get up get out and come with me
We’ll sing from the branches of sweet gum trees
I know it’s late go with me there
We’ll meet our friends everywhere

Talk from the heart is heard on the lips
And soon the whispers will birth chaos in the courts of the rich
But one darkened night desperate crowds will show
Swollen like rivers with the winter snow
With our darlings on our arms
Into the gardens we’ll run

So get up get out and fill the streets
Let’s dance in the ash of the big chimneys
I know it’s late but lead us there
We’ll meet our friends everywhere

So get up get out and come with me
We’ll sing from the branches of sweet gum trees
I know it’s late go with me there
We’ll meet our friends everywhere

So get up get out
So get up get out
So get up get out
So get up get out

So get up get out
So get up get out
So get up get out
So get up get out
