"What Gets You Off" as written by and Andrew Mcmahon....
It was last night
At our empty warehouse party
Ah, ah
And there in the black light
I could see the tattoos glowing on your body, well
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

And she said to meet her there, beside the power station
Oh, oh
And she said she'd let me stare
If the chemicals don't keep her waiting, well

Oh, oh
Yeah, whoa, oh

[Chorus]
Well I'm always coming down from the night before I left you
Yeah I'm always coming down but I'm doing my best to get caught
Yeah I'm always coming down from the night before well I bet you
To hear that gets you off
What gets you off
What gets you off

Red fingernail polish
Peeling like a sunburn
Ah, ah
That black designer dress looks better underneath our feet
Yours knees in the dirt

Well, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh oh oh

[Chorus]

Yeah
What gets you off
Oh, oh, oh
Yeah

[Chorus]

What gets you off

Oh, oh
What gets you off [Repeat: x3]

    General Commentto me it sounds like he says (at the question mark):
    "Your knees on the dirt"

    but. it could be up for interpretation.

    General CommentI think you are correct. It would make sense. If it thats what it says, this song is even better.

    General CommentI think it's "Your knees in the dirt."

    I really like this song. It's soo sexxy. His voice in this song is to die for!

    I think this about his girlfriend wanting sex, but he's not able to give it to her because of all of the meds. Andrew had to take when he had cancer, but he wants to give her sex. Or something along those lines.

    But I do know for sure this is a sexxy song.

    General CommentI think that the second part of the chorus is:

    Well I'm always coming down from the night before
    Well I beg you
    To hear that gets you off
    What gets you off

    That's just how I heard it but I feel confident that's right. And I agree with alaskasmiles. It definitely does sound like a song to have sex to lol

    General CommentWow! an amazing song by an amazing person. I think the song though is pretty self explanitory. The song though kinda causes your mind to race.

    General Commentthis is my favorite track on the cd, hands down. It is very reminiscent of Something Corporate to me.
