"Get Up" as written by and Jake Bundrick Derek Sanders....
This place is not quite what it seems
Or anything that I was told it'd be
New York, you know you make my heart skip
In my dreams, I make it in to Vegas

Seattle hits me every time
I can't get Chicago off my mind
New Jersey taught me how to let go
And I've learned it's all that I need to know

In this moment, we're connected
If we fall, we fall together

Get up, get up
Sing it like you're screaming at me
Get up, get up
I love the way you make it look so easy
East coast, West coast
Show me what you got now
Let's go, let's go
Get up, get up
Make my heartbeat pickup
Get up, get up
Beating to the rhythm

I spill my heart from coast to coast
Fall in love with everyone I know
Sometimes it isn't where you're going
It's who you're with

In this moment, we're connected
If we fall, we fall together

Get up, get up
Sing it like you're screaming at me
Get up, get up
I love the way you make it look so easy
East coast, West coast
Show me what you got now
Let's go, let's go

Get up, get up
Sing it like you're screaming at me
Get up, get up
I love the way you make it look so easy
East coast, West coast
Show me what you got now
Let's go, let's go
Get up, get up
Make my heartbeat pickup
Get up, get up
Beating to the rhythm

Get up, get up
Sing it like you're screaming at me
Get up, get up
I love the way you make it look so easy
East coast, West coast
Show me what you got now
Let's go, let's go
Let's go, let's go

Get up, get up
Sing it like you're screaming at me
Get up, get up
I love the way you make it look so easy
East coast, West coast
Show me what you got now

    General CommentThis song obviously seems to be about being on the road and touring and the different experiences that he has had in different states.

    General CommentIm sure the states are used as metaphors. So each state he mentions would be a previous relationship with a girl

    General Commenthaha i find the references to thier old songs funny
    "In my dreams, I make it in to Vegas"-jamie all over
    "New Jersey taught me how to let go"-jersey
    "This place is not quite what it seems"-(possibly) you be the anchor...
    and maybe "I can't get Chicago off my mind" could possibly be an allusion to the fact that some of the band members came from the band A Kid Named Chicago... then again i could be overthinking it...

    General Commentthis song is definatly about his different relationships throughout his life so far. "New Jersey taught me how to let go" is in referance to their song jersey in which he is getting over a girl. "In My dreans i make it into vegas" is talking about the girl in jamie all over....and so on. The meaning behing this song is really deep.

    My Interpretationi really doubt it's about the girl/state references...those songs were written by jason lancaster, who left the band waayy before this album.
